Welcome to the party-This post is sticky and will remain on the top of my blog for days on end! Scroll down for new posts!

For those of you who are visiting from the party over at 5 Minutes for Mom, welcome to my blog! I am very excited to have you here and to get to know some more of you a little better!

My name is Melissa and I'm a SAHM of 2 girls, a 3.5 yr old and a 15-month old. I have been married to my DH for 5.5 yrs, and live in the blustery cold north! We haven't had much snow this year, but the cold and wind have been around far too long. I'm ready for spring!

Aside from being a SAHM, I am also an independant consultant with The Body Shop at Home. It's a lot of fun to offer pampering parties and I enjoy getting out of the house a bit. For more info on that, you can click here.

Let's see, what else can I tell you about myself. I graduated from Moody Bible Institute with a degree in Linguistics. I continue to be facinated by languages of all sorts. I studied French for a few years and even had to take a semester of spoken Japanese! Although I'm not really using my skills (other than deciphering baby chatter!) these days, I'm actively involved in the MOPS ministry at a local church.

Besides all of this, I still manage to find time to scrapbook and crochet, which are my main hobbies. Oh, and blogging, of course. I originally set up this blog to be able to post more of my scrapbook layouts, but that just hasn't happened. I find it a challenge to get them scanned, and taking pictures of them doesn't do them justice. So for now I mainly blog about my daily life and post pictures of the family/kiddos. I enjoy finding other blogs and meeting new friends that way!

Again, thanks for stopping by my blog. To visit other party guests, click here.

Hi Melissa,

Thanks for stopping by my blog and saying "Hi." I'm so glad you enjoyed my talk at MOPS.

I also love to scrapbook, but I am SO BEHIND!!! Sometimes I think I should just give up. Or if I stop taking pictures for a few years, maybe then I'll get caught up. Hmmm...

Hope you're having fun at the party. By the way - I just posted a yummy recipe. Stop by and try it!
