I Have a Guest Post Today at My LIfe and Kids

I am super excited to be guest blogging today on Anna's blog, My Life and Kids.  To read my post and my tutorial for making 4th Of July Sparklers click here.  For more about Anna keep reading….

Read any of Anna's poignant and hilarious posts about life as a stay-at-home mom and I know you will love her as much as I do.  She has 3 small kids and a hubby with a strange tendency to show up in her posts all Photoshopped.  As the story goes Anna was a working woman staking her place in corporate America (ok, I really have no idea what she did before she stayed home but she did something….she loved).  In those days she lived with her hunky, and perfectly per portioned hubby, Even Steven and her beloved baby, Harry Dog.  Once she embraced her fertility she just couldn't stop it until she had 3 kids in 3 years and her life changed.  She moved to the burbs, got a mini-van and quit her job.  Throughout it all she has maintained her wicked-and hilarious- sense of humor.  The dog….he no longer gets much maternal attention and the hunky hubby?  His head spends a lot of time Photoshopped to strange bodies.  Anna? She's still beautiful and smiles….a lot.

Take a trip to her blog and be prepared to laugh.  I will warn you….do NOT have anything in your mouth when you read her posts because she has been known to cause her readers to spit coffee at their computer screen.  The bonus funny is that her mom and a variety of friends and relatives like to post comments and sometimes by the time I get done reading them, I can't breath.

Anna doesn't just post funny stories and HILARIOUS Photoshoped pictures of her husband…oh no, she is much more than that.  She has started a community with 11 other female bloggers.  A community that is real and honest.  The blogosphere is full of women who claim to have perfect lives….you know the type….married to her best friend, birthed 4 adorable model- perfect kids and she does it all by shopping where nothing is ever more than a dollar.  What?  Pleeeeaaazzze!  We all know life is messy and wonderful and horrible and funny and sad.  But it isn't perfect.  We have perfect moments but not perfect lives.  These women keep it real and I love that.  Check out this new but thriving community here.

Anna doesn't keep the funny to herself.  She has started a weekly Linky Party with another funny blogger called Finding the Funny.  Now everyone has the opportunity to link her funniest blog posts.  There are a lot of funny women blogging these days.

I have decided to give Anna the following It's Raining JellyBeans Bloggy Awards

The First Post (I ever read) Bloggy: 
Kitchen Floor Update.  It was the post that sealed the deal…. I would forever more be a loyal reader of all things Anna.

All the goodness doesn't stop at funny.  Anna has an E-Book she is giving away on her Facebook page.  Just "Like" her Facebook Page and you can download 25 Ways to Have More Fun at Home; a compilation of 25 (serious) activities to do with your kids written with a glint of Anna's humor.

Can you believe Anna is also crafty.  While I cannot imagine how she finds time to craft with 3 little ones at home, but she occasional whips out the Mod Podge and makes something cool.  You will find links to her projects here.

As usual I am a story teller and quick post to let you know about my guest post on her blog turns out to be a long post on my blog.  Ce Le Vie, blah blah blah…..

Check out my post today at My Life and Kids.  I share a tutorial for making a fun 4th-of-July decoration.  Be sure to come back here later this week for more of my decorations how-tos.

Laters Baby….
