Tomorrow, April 9th, is the first day of 5 Minutes For Mom’s 2010 Ultimate Blog Party!!!!! Are you excited???? In case you don’t know what a blog party is….for this blog party everyone writes an introductory “party” post. Then people hop around the internet looking at all the blog party posts finding new friends & blogs to read in the process. Cool, huh? Oh and did I mention there are prizes???? Yup! If this sounds super exciting & you want to participate just click the big button above to join the fun.
Now for the part about little ol’ ME!
Welcome to my blog…Merry with Children (formerly Merry and Dewey in Canada). My name is Merry (really!). I am an American living in Canada with my wonderful husband, Dewey, and my little boy, Evan. About 5 1/2 years ago I decided to move to Canada, marry my husband, change jobs and become a stepmom to two great kids (Will & Nicole). Talk about upheaval! Shortly after the big move, I started blogging. Back then I blogged to keep family & friends up to date on what we were up to…..now I blog for me! Don’t get me wrong….I love followers, comments, etc but I love the writing and camaraderie with fellow bloggers even more!
This blog is all about my everyday life. I write about what we do, things I find that I enjoy and things that the kids like. I also try to post at least one recipe per week. Don’t forget to check out my Recipe Index for lots of great recipes! I love taking pictures and I keep hoping to get the time to focus on improving my photography skills…until then…bear with me!
In my “real” life, I work full time in sales. I sell process control equipment to oil & gas companies. Sounds boring, huh? That’s what I get for being an engineer! My favorite things in life are friends, family, traveling, reading, photography, cooking….and tons of other hobbies I don’t have time for!
More about me in pictures!
