Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Ultimate Blog Party 2010



Hi! Welcome to my blog! This is the first time I have participated in the Ultimate Blog Party and if this is the first time you have stopped by let me tell ya a little about me. My name is Joy and I have been married for two and a half years to a wonderful man. See...


We have a beautiful, funny, sweet, adorable 15 month old daughter. I love to play with her, roll around in the floor, chase, read and sing to her. She is the light of our lives and we love her so much!

And this is our family! Yes, I am one of those moms that likes to color coordinate. Only when we go to functions, on holidays, or Sunday mornings for church occasionally. Not just to go to the grocery store! Can you imagine the work that would take...ha!
I am a stay at home Mom, but before that I was a high-end residential interior designer. I not only got to pick and design fabulous furniture, but I also did the architectural drawings and custom cabinetry. Here is an example. I still do freelance design from time to time. I had what I always thought of as my dream job, and while I loved it, I love being Ella's momma more.

I am also a Jesus believing, clothes obsessing, hair teasing, DIY making, canvas & wall painting, photography loving, party planning, bow making, Dallas dwelling, girl who loves my family and will share all of that with you here on my blog! Thank you so much for stopping by!

There are so many prizes it took me forever to go over the list & then even longer to decide what I would want if by some small chance I won. My top three are:

USC 35 - $50.00 Cash!! Provided by: American Muslim Mom
95 - $100 Gift Certificate to Restaraunt.com Provided by: Thrifty Jinxy
INTL 10 - Custom Blogger design provided by: StartRankingNow

USC 39, USC 55, USC 15,USC 3, USC 8

Found you through the Ultimate Blog Part 2010. You're family is so cute. I like to color coordinate too. My husband hates it, so I have to be kind of sneaky.
