Hello new friends! Ultimate Blog party 2013

It’s that time of year! The annual blog party by, 5 minutes for Mom. I like to participate in this party because I have met a TON of lovely blogger’s through this fun “party”. SOOooooo, I want to introduce myself to all of you lovely new readers!

My name is Chelsey and I’ve been blogging since 2008, but my Paper Mama blog has been going for 3 years now. I started blogging so I could find other mom’s going through new motherhood, too. Pretty much: I was lonely. Somehow… this turned into a business. I love it. I’m a contributor to the Better Homes and Gardens Style Spotters blog and have a few other blogging contributor gigs. Blogging is my kind of job.

Profile February 2013

I’ve been married for ALMOST 5 years, but with my husband for over 10. I have a 3 year old daughter. She’s named after Rory on the Gilmore Girls (her name is Laureli and we call her Ruari). I have 2 cats and one dog (a little Chihuahua). We just bought 3 baby chicks, and we are looking forward to gathering chicken eggs when they are older!

My adorable kid:

Here’s our crazy little pup… Mr. Angus. He’s suuuuper lazy. It’s a good thing he’s adorable. Ha! He loves pina coladas and getting caught in the rain. Oh, wait. No he doesn’t.

This is my kitty Princess. Or, Pretty Girl. I found her in a mall parking lot years ago when I lived in Seattle. She was just a hungry little kitten meowing in a bush. No way I could leave her. She’s a complete weirdo and I love her.

Meet Pistachio. Lord Pistachio is his full name (my husband named him). He’s a very sweet boy… but, loves to pick on  poor Princess and Angus. Maybe because he’s 17 pounds he thinks he can push everyone around? Hee. He mostly loves people.

Last, but not least, our newest family members: Booksat, Boca, and Mrs. Pickles.

Look… adorable chicks!

Thanks for stopping by!

    Pretty Girl looks just like my Edgar (who has a brother Allen and a cousin Poe). Your daughter is adorable too! That face! Too cute! (and I currently live near Seattle. Love it here!)

    I'd love to have chickens some day but I haven't convinced the hubby yet. Still working on it!
