This week I have seen several good posts.

Here is a yummy looking, non-vegetarian bacon cup recipe.  It looks so pretty.  This is one Mr. Right and I are sure to try.  You have got to check it out.

Tammy has a delicious looking Cream Cheese Browine.  That would certainly hit the spot right about now.

When I read this funny post about a washcloth to my husband, he almost spit his drink out of his nose.

I cannot believe how rude and self-absorbed some people can be.  Read this recap of one of Kailani’s recent flights back to Hawaii and how rude these two brats were.  While you are there, be sure to check out here giveaway for Mommy Tags jewelry.   

Speaking of giveaways, Contest Blogger is giving away $100 a month every month.  All you have to do to be eligible to win is to post a link to their site on your blog.  Then you are eligible every month – for life.  Pretty cool, eh? 

Finally, I really enjoyed Michelle at Scribbit’s post about the things she misses in Alaska.  It gave me such a sense of what I take for granted living in a metropolitan area compared to other parts of the country.

Ultimate Blog Party 2008

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!!!

It’s Blog Party Week in Blogland! Welcome to my Party! Thanks for Visiting!!

Since this is a blog party, we need to kick this party off with the most important part: FOOD! Everyone loves food. Let’s have some! If you were here, I would cook some of these good (if I do say so myself) recipes for you:

An Evening with Friends Party Food

Game Night with Your Family Party Food

Saving the Best for Last, Dessert Party Food

Now that you are fat and happy, sit back, enjoy, and learn a little bit about my family, my blog, and me.

My college sweetheart and I were happily married 15 ½ years ago. We are still happy! I affectionately call my husband Mr. Right on this blog. He is the “right” man for me. Always has been. Always will be. He is often right about all sorts of trivia and useless useful information. He is politically right of center. He keeps God in the right place in his heart. While he is not technically right all the time, he is right most of the time and that is right for me.

We have boy girl twins (BusyBoy and GigglyGirl) who will be 5 in a few weeks. BusyBoy is all boy. He is always on the move, plays hard all day long, and is quite imaginative. Even though he is a rambunctious boy, he is also our “sweet baby boy” with a tender heart. GigglyGirl loves to talk and laugh and talk and talk and talk. She giggled when she heard I call her “GigglyGirl” on the blog. She loves her dolls, her art supplies, ballet, and princesses. She makes us laugh and our hearts smile.

In addition to my family, I love God. My father is a United Methodist minister. My parents taught me how to have a close relationship with God and I have done so my whole life.

I used to be a stay at home mom. Last year I transitioned into the role of work at home mom after my husband closed his company. I do political consulting and constituent services. I love to read but have yet to put any book reviews on my blog. I read an average of one book a week. While I do my best to keep up with the laundry, I really do not like it because it is a never ending Sisyphean Task. (Sisyphean, that’s one of those useless useful words Mr. Right taught me.) I hate this year’s flu and what it has done to my family and friends.

Ok, I hope these links give you a taste of who I am. Stick around for awhile. You can navigate JenuineJen by selecting a category, most popular post, and/or recent posts on the right. You can also learn more about me on my 100 Things about JenuineJen page. Oh, and if you have any recommendations for moving my blog to its own domain and redesigning blogs, I would love to hear your comments. Thanks!!

If you have made it to the end of this post, thank you again for visiting!! Leave a comment to let me know what you think. Be sure to leave a link to your blog so I can check it out as well.

Finally, be sure to check out all the other parties at 5 Minutes for Mom! It should be a fun-filled party week.

I just found this post about a bad hair cut and it is too funny!  I admire Veronica for sharing this story with us so we could laugh with her! 

Jordan at MommaBlogga has a Letter to Mothers in the Waiting Room at the Doctor’s Office.  Luckily, we have not had this experience at our doctor’s office. 

These Sour Cream Pan Biscuits sound really good.  I bet my children would love them and they look easy!!  I think BusyBoy would like the Pretzel Crusted Chicken Fingers MomCooks has posted as well.
