Kristen over at Coo Coo's Ca Choo, This is a story of a girl is having a


Kristen is throwing this blog party in effort to bring more traffic to every one's blog. Although I'm not one for "fake" traffic or followers, I decided to join this party! I feel like there are so many blogs out there and I seriously could be missing out on some GREAT content!

So Kristen took everyone who joined the party and partnered them up with another blogger. We are to then feature that blogger on our blog. I think this is a "SMOKIN" idea! I was hoping and praying I'd get partnered up with a blog to which I would actually enjoy, AND I DID! I'm the luckiest girl in the world! LOL Does that make me SHALLOW? Oh well if it does, I mean who wants to feature a blog to which they are not even interested in. Certainly not me, I don't fake blog remember.

So I'm very EXCITED to say that I have just been matched with......

Wait for it!

Wait for it!

Wait for it!

Cassie over at My Life with Kids!

This is my first time visiting Cassie's blog! My first reaction, "OMG her blog is PINK! ROCK ON!" I mean, who doesn't like PINK? Not me, I love PINK! You have to respect a nice blog design. I think a great easy to read blog design brings people back to your site over and over again! If you blog design is hard to read it can detour people from re-visiting your blog. Cassie's blog hits the nail on the button. I'll Definitely visit her on a daily!

So who is Cassie? I've asked Cassie to write a brief description of who she is. So I'm now going to hand the keyboard over to Cassie.

Please give a SMELL THE COFFEE LISA round of applause for CASSIE!

"I am a 30 something stay at home mom with two small boys. I like reading and politics although this blog isn't about that at all. I write mostly about the day to day craziness of running after the kids and their activites."

I've asked Cassie to provide me with a link to her favorite post. However, before I get to her favorite post, I wanted to post a link or two, possibly three, you know me. To what I think is my favorite post on her site.

It was so hard to pick, just one. I mean I loved her post about "being that girl" You know the one who dances and sings in her car? Yeah that is Cassie and that is also me! I am so guilty of doing that more often then not. Come on now, you know you are just as guilty as we are!

Then there was her post about "Things kids Say" It appears to be her Thursday MEME. Who doesn't love the crazy things that come out their child's mouth.

I know my son can say some pretty crazy things. Like the time he told me he wanted a Tattoo on his butt and I asked him what it would say and he said, "Gage is cool, bakugan rules!" That my friend is why 9 yr olds are not allowed to get tattoos.

Here's a sample of the things that come out of Cassie's kids mouths. I was laughing so hard I had tears coming out of my eyeballs. I can so relate to her, I might have join in on this fun! You know my relationship with commitment though, so we will see.

6 year old: Mom, why didn't you name me something cool?
Me: What would be a cool name?
6 year old: Lightning Bolt

3 year old: Mom, can I have something to eat? (We were watching the older boy's football game.)
Me: Sure, how about a pretzel?
3 year old: But the pretzels all have white polka dots on them.
Me: Yep, its called salt.

So the post I chose as my favorite, though I think they all rock because I CAN RELATE to them all, was..................

Things Not to do at a Six Year old's Birthday Party!

First off, you are wave BRAVER and COOLER than I am to bring LIVE REPTILES into your home. Seriously I saw that picture of that BIG OLE snake. What were you thinking? Then there was the whole Chocolate Water fountain. Again, WHAT were you thinking? However, CAN I BE YOUR CHILD? I can totally relate to the whole cuts and bruises and the kids running around all over the place. Birthday parties are chaotic and crazy. Next year I'm bribing my son out of having a birthday party. You think he'd rather have $100 than a party? I hope so! I won't spoil the rest of the post, just go read it for yourself!

Now for Cassie's pick of her favorite post!

My favorite post is probably http://cassie-ylifewithkids.blogspot.com/2009/10/insomnia.html.

Although I have been enjoying writing the funny things my kids say on Thursdays like this one http://cassie-mylifewithkids.blogspot.com/2009/10/things-kids-say-thursday.html.

So that's Cassie in a nut shell. You're missing out on great content if you don't go visit her. She's definitely been added to my daily blog roll. I can't wait to read what she posts next!
