Bust Out the Bubbly!


Hello fellow bloggers! It's time to celebrate! I just received an exciting email - I am going to be featured @ SITS! (Doing a happy dance in my chair).

Pause to regain decorum....

Ahem.

I have to take this opportunity to tell you guys that I am so thankful to have my bloggy buddies in my life, especially my SITS buddies (check out the ladies under Fabulous Links, they rock). You guys have been an amazing support network this year!

So many things have happened! My husband and I celebrated our 3rd anniversary, my son, Noah was born (and is going to be 1 next month - yikes, where does the time go?!?), and we just bought our very first house!

This has also been a year for blogging. Sippy Cup Chardonnay emerged as a way to connect with people. As a new SAHM I thought I might lose it (one can only sing Twinkle Twinkle and attend so many playdates in a week). It began as therapy, and has become an obsession and a great way to avoid doing housework!

Most of my posts are about mommy life. Here are some that were fun to write:



Hope you enjoy your time here. Pour yourself a glass of Chardonnay and enjoy!


Cheers,
Rachel


p.s. I think you'll find the more you drink, the better my posts are anyway. haha.
