Welcome to my house on the Bloggy Block party!! We're not the biggest. Not the cleanest (shhhh... don't tell!). We're just the COOLEST partyin' bloggers in my house! Well, I am anyway, since no one else blogs...

We've got a whole WEEK to get to know each other, so let's start now.

Hi, I'm Sara, mom of The Estrogen Files. My mind is as cluttered as my blog but my family loves me anyway. I have four brats kids who drive me insane hourly. All but the youngest is in school. Hubbers is an engineer who works for the government, which is cause for insanity itself.

I live in snowy Idaho. I've come to the conclusion that Idaho is an Indian word that means "The Wind Never FREAKIN' STOPS blowin'!" We've lived here 10 years and our house is only 1400 square feet. Saying that we're a little cramped is an understatement.

I like to craft with crochet hooks, paper and scrapbooks, and web design. I own my own sewing business called WAHMom.com (Work at Home Mom). Once upon a time I could wear skinny jeans. Now I go to Curves and joined Therefore, What - a weightloss blog.

I enjoy spreading my maniacy (is that a word? kind of maniac and lunacy all rolled together?) to all and sundry. Welcome to The Estrogen Files!

Leave me a comment and I'll be sure to visit your blog, too. I LIVE for comments, you know. Don't we all?

In case that's not enough "sara" for you, check out my 100 Things post.

This is a sticky post -- scroll down for the latest bloggy news below.

Well hello there. Thought I would stop by and say hello. Come visit me and all my craziness.

Jessica said...

Yay for the party! I am glad to meet you! I love the name of your blog!! Have a great week of partying!

T with Honey said...

Hi Sara! I read The Estrogen Files all the time. Have I never left you a comment before?? Consider this my de-lurking then. Party on!!

KarenW said...

I live for comments too! I had to LOL at your definition for Idaho. I think that is what Constanta means in Romanian. Constanta at 3000 years old is the original windy city, I think. I hope you can stop by. Enjoy the party!

Tirzah said...

I like your blog! We are real life neighbors...I'm in Utah! I am having a blast at this party!! I hope to make lots of new friends. I LOVE comments as well!

Deena said...

Saw the title of your blog and HAD to stop by!! Had a hot flash while I was reading it LOL!!

I promise to stop lurking and start commenting...really, I do...

And I have a question (I'm such a bloggy newbie)...how do you type a word and then line through it like you did?? I wanna know **waahh**

Aimee said...

Sara! My bloggy compadre! I love your party post, and I especially love the translation for Idaho :0)
My party is in full swing, so stop by when you can!

Cmommy said...

It's so nice to meet you! Where did you find the M&M button? That is so, so funny!! (my favorite candy, btw, and the reason the size 10's do not fit)

PT-LawMom said...

Great blog! Love the M&M button. LOL! Seriously funny. Party on. ;)

~Jennifer said...

Very nice to meet you, sounds like we have a few things in common!

YoungMommy said...

Hi Sara~

I have so enjoyed your party... I'll be back again soon, I'm sure!

Thanks for stopping by for my bash. You didn't play my game, though... You'll have to come back!! (Make sure you come back before I spill the beans tomorrow!)

Happy Partying!

Praying for your Prodigal said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I am so enjoying this huge blog party!

So glad you left a comment (and don't hesitate to ever comment.....Blogging 101 states that "Bloggers can never have too many comments!") It's been blizzarding all day here in Minnesota...so yes, I made my way around a few party-blogs! It's still snowing so my post tomorrow will show a few snowstorm photos--and with any luck...I'll get to visit a few new blogs again. Susan and Janice are hosting a really fun event! I didn't expect it to be so large....sure hope no one else in the blogosphere has anything to say that they want us to hear...we're gonna be a little busy for the coming week!

Happy party-hopping!

Hop on over to my blog any time!

Diane

Sara, thanks for your sweet comments. I wanted to drop by in case you didn't make it back to read my responses to let you know I appreciated them.

An Ordinary Mom said...

I don't know what you are talking about - I liked your introduction!

I feel like I have a cluttered mind as well :)!!

Happy Partying this week!

Sara said...

You guys are all so sweet! My head got big and fat and may just float away on all the praise!!

sognatrice said...

Hi Sara! Came here through good old Mr. Linky, and I can't wait to learn more about you. I'm currently teaching myself to crochet, so I may have some questions along the way....

Cyndi said...

Here I thought that is what South Dakota meant! LOL

Ladybug Mommy Maria said...

Just wanted to bump up your comment count!!!!!

I didn't even know about the party....

Stephanie said...

Howdy! I almost forgot about the party! I better get moving!

BeckyD said...

Don't we all live for comments. You may have the coolest blog on the block, but I'm thinking might just might be the rowdiest.

Come on by for a visit, have a drink or two (just step over the bodies on the lawn...told ya we were a rowdy bunch) and visit.

THE HABITUAL PICKER-UPPER said...

Between Bonners Ferry and Naples. Maybe the treasure valley is got some green grass. What do you think.

Heidi said...

Thanks for visiting my party...we're in Idaho too!!! I agree about the wind thing!

Great party and I'll be back to share my maniacy!!!!

Christy said...

Napping, coffee, our husbands are both engineers, and we're both blogging way too late at night...you're right, we are long lost twins!

Deanne said...

Thanks for stopping by and saying hi! This blog party thing is fun, yes?! Anyway, you seem like a person who'd brighten my day with your humor and warmth. Here's to new friends!!!

I loooooooove your sense of humor! You're a goddess of wackiness! :)

Amber said...

Ahhh, sweet, sweet Idaho. I once did time in Rexburg. In fact, I think I still have sub-zero nightmares about the whole thing. :-)

Happy partying!

Adventures In Babywearing said...

Interesting blog!! I'm the only estrogen in a sea of testosterone in my family. I love it though.

Blessings.

wow, love the partying music, and your blog is just so pretty, just stopping by during the blog slumber party...

Leslie said...

Oh I too live for comments! Ack..almost typed "I too live for Lent"..cause I was busy staring at your sidebar while I was typing. I don't live for Lent cause I am not Catholic. Then again I don't die for Lent either. So I suppose I do live for Lent.

Nice to meet you!
Happy blog party week!

Kitchen Madonna said...

I wanna come! I'll bring homemade almond biscotti and the fixins for Pomtini's! The music is fabulous on your site! I'm coming to Idaho. I used to live on a ranch in Oklahoma and loved it. But I know about the wind! Can I bring my new Patty Loveless tunes I just downloaded?

Julie Arduini said...

Awesome Mom said...

just wanted to say Hi and thanks for dropping by my blog even though I am not even officially a party goer. We sure do have a lot in common except my family is flooded with testosterone instead of estrogen. We cloth diaper too.

tigerfish said...

Thanks for coming by my blog. You are one witty lady.;p

Qtpies7 said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting! I'm back to visit because I love a pro-life, breast feeding, cloth diapering, modest, baby wearing, sah mom! Thats me at the moment, too. I may be getting a job, but otherwise your description fits me until the outnumbered part. We have more guys than girls right now. Even our pets are mostly boys.

Doris said...

Thanks for having me! Great party with GREAT music!

Barb the Evil Genius said...

Hi, and thanks for stopping by my blog! I love your blog name too, and I might just "steal" your M&M icon. My husband usually always has a "chocolate stash" somewhere in the house for when I have my bad days. Smart man!

Becky said...

Hi Sara! Thanks for stopping by to visit me. I hope you scrolled down to see the party post. I can't figure out how to make it a sticky post. It took me 2 weeks just to figure out how to make my header have a picture with words inside of it.

I am loving the party thing. Oh, and I am counting points on WW. Lost all of 2 1/2 pounds in the month of Feb. Eeeek. Hard work for those kinda results. But I need to add the exercise. That will do it.

I'll check back with you.

Chappyswife said...

Hey, it's nice to meet you, and I enjoyed looking around your place. Have a GREAT weekend!

Brandie said...

Hello! It's so nice to meet you. Thanks for having me over to your party =)

Christine~AreWeThereYet! said...

Hi Sara,
It's nice to meet you and Thanks for helping me by showing me those great pics, I forgot about Morguefile. The last one is great!
Your post about your 2yr old asking about your 'bog', cracked me that's cute!I'll be back!
Have a great Friday!

Barbara H. said...

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my party! I am sure I have been here before -- maybe for some meme or another? I love your blog title. :)

My husband is from southern Idaho. But I am glad we don't live there -- I couldn't take all the snow. It gets colder than I like even here in SC. :)

You asked what I did as a SAHM after my kids all went to school. I head up our ladies' group at church and write a monthly newsletter for them. This month we're doing college student care packages, so there is a lot of behind-the-scenes stuff with that kind of thing. I've started doing a bit of writing and had a few articles published. Other than that I keep the home fires burning and take my youngest where he needs to go. Everyone else's schedule in the family is so crazy, I kind of like that I'm the one home keeping everything running and keeping on top of everyone else's schedule. If my schedule were crazy, too -- I'd be a basket case. I want to scrapbook and sew and get a million projects done. And I spend too much time on the computer. :)

To me this is an ideal time of life. My kids are not as dependent as they were when they were little, but none has left yet.

Amanda said...

Hi Sara. Nice to meet you. I am a SAHM of three boys in northern VA. I hate the wind in winter! I am eagerly waiting summer even tho' I know I'll complain about the heat then!
