What should I wear???

I live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, don't cha know?

And today, I am participating in this wonderfully cool event for Ottawa Bloggers:

Only A&J from Please Pick Up your socks would be cool enough to host this type of event.

What a neat way to meet other local bloggers - I really only know a few locals suffering from this addiction! I cannot wait to meet some more!

At most parties, I have a bit of fear regarding mingling - ya, ya, I know, I love to talk and in most respects I am a classic Type A Extrovert - but the idle chit-chat that occurs when first meeting someone, ya, well, not my strong point. I tend to find a comfortable subject and bludgeon it to death! Not always the best first impression!

Oh! I so want them all to like me and accept me into the Ottawa Blogging Community - to call me one of their only hope!

I hope that I do not dwell too much on why I blog, or the fact that I have a 5 year old, a 4 year old and an almost 2 year old Princess Diva. Or that I dwell on all the cute things they say and do! You know how some moms can go on and on...Ya, I have the tendency to do that too! I also love talking about my family and all the fun we have together. I hope they ask me about my job - oh, I love my job and talk lots about my hubby rolls his eyes! Seriously, I count myself lucky to find a job that allows me to work outside the home, but still be a full-time SAHM. Or maybe we can chat about my love of soccer, my new fitness regiment or my recent weight loss and how I lost a toddler? Maybe I will find a new scrapbooking pal? Wonder if anyone else did the NaBloPoMO? Oh! I hope I do not dwell on this, or rant about this, or complain about this, or brag too much about this....

I am getting so excited!!! This Virtual Christmas Party is going to be GREAT! Run, grab a mug of eggnog, cozy up to your computer screen and participate in the fun!

I encourage you all to click on over and meet a few of my fellow Ottawa Bloggers. We are pretty nice, for the most part, and a fun group of bloggers.

You do not have to be from Ottawa, to enjoy the musings of Ottawa-bloggers!

You and I have a lot of the same interests. And are you going to post pictures when you reach your weight loss goal? Your fitness routine sounds SERIOUS. How cold is it there? I have a treadmill in my basement...if I didn't, I doubt I would keep up the cardio. I can't deal with the cold weather! You are the BOMB!
