Ultimate Blog Party Post

Ultimate Blog Party 2012

I'm a little late getting this post up, but wanted to make sure I let you all know that it's time again for the Ultimate Blog Party over at 5 Minutes for Mom.  Why?  Because it rocks!  Not only do they give away a gazillion products during the week, they also give all of us bloggers a chance to find neww blogs and make new blogger friends.

This year they asked the participants to tell a little about ourselves on our blog.  So...

I am Geri.  I am Boymom.  Mom of two boys. (Sometimes three, depending on the maturity level of my husband on any given day.)  Like my header says, it's what I do.  I have two wonderfully, hilarious  pre-teen boys and an equally hilarious husband who contstantly amazes me with his wit and wisdom.  As the only female in a house full of males, I sometimes forget what it's like to be a girl. I have an obsession with Clorox Wipes, due to aiming issues in the bathroom that are beyond my comprehension.  How do you miss a bowl with such a large opening?!  Seriously!!

I also write product reviews for various family friendly products and toys here on my own blog and I am a guest contributor for product reviews at 5 Minutes for Giveaways.

When I'm not writing reviews, I am busy working to get our fledgling non-profit up and running.  I am a founding director of Helping Our Warriors, a non-profit dedicated to the support and stabilization of military families as they deal with everchanging circumstances due to their service.  Through annual retreats, we will offer these families a safe and peaceful place to bond and develop coping skills that will strengthen the family unit so they can thrive and succeed no matter the situation.  We are excited to be up and fully running this year as we work to get a full Board of Directors in place and embark on some major fundraising events.

Finally, we just moved to a new town, so of course I had to start a new blog about our life here, right?  I just got at home in {Boise} going, so you can stop by there once in a while to find out all about our new home and the people and places in our new community.  Okay...I said stop by, which you can do, but I still have to get some posts together, so be patient.  I started a new job a few weeks ago, so it's taking all my brain power and energy to deal with training the last few weeks so y blogs have suffered.  But I'm done training this week, so I'll have more time to get caught up with posts and such! 

So that's me!  I hope you'll stop by once in awhile, introduce yourself and leave a witty or insightful comment!  I'll try to do the same for you!  In the meantime, I'm gonna put some party music on and enjoy UBP 2012 with 5 Minutes for Moms!  Join me!!

I stopped in from UBP12~ I follow you via GFC, Shannon's Tales of Motherhood.

Your blog is so cute, I love your picture of your boys, they look so cute! I have 2 boys as well (also 2 girls) so I know what it's like having to clean up the army toys and all! Keep up the great work!
Please feel free to stop by my blog

So glad to have found you through UBP12! For some strange reason it seems most 'mom bloggers' have girls so kudos to you for standing out and focusing on boy-themed products and ideas!
