The Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Ultimate Blog Party 2011Hi to all of the new people popping by today for The Ultimate Blog Party!  I'm so glad you're stopping by!

Oh my words...I've written and re-written this line trying to figure out how in the heck to introduce myself to all you fun, new people stopping by today.  And, I'm just gonna go with the confession that I have no freaking clue how to successfully capture you all in a witty way to make you want to come back and visit day after day after day.

So...let's go with basics.  My name is Logan Wolfram and this is my blog!

But for real, I started this blog after some prodding from too many friends and I'd say that around these parts, I write about a little bit of everything.  I'm a Spanish-major... turned radio ad exec...turned jewelry designer...turned decorator... turned stay-at-home-mom to 2 boys (ages 4 and 1) who keeps life interesting by keeping it varied and keeping it REAL.

I've found that my overt friendliness lends itself to a propensity for public verbal diarrhea, often making for a good laugh and some awkward social moments....which of course, I share with you when they happen.

I am no stranger to the evils of human nature, and often share about what I like to call "Tales of a Lesser Woman."  You will find me posting sometimes about things like my grown-up Temper Tantrum, or the time I mortifyingly pooted during a dinner party, or sometimes when I'm a jerk and have to serve myself up a slice of Humble Pie.

Cooking has been big on my list of favorite things since the days of my Suzy bake oven, and after spending some time in the kitchen of a fantastic restaurant out of college, I learned some helpful things there too.  So I share tips and recipes that I think are worth repeating.  And you can always know that even though I'm not too vain to share my escapades into the mortifyingly embarrassing, I am much too vain to share a recipe that won't knock your socks off and keep you coming back for more.  Yummies like Fig and Sausage Pizza, Southern Shrimp and Grits, the best Banana Bread EVER, and Chocolate Whoppers to name a few.

And then there are always some musings on fabulous finds or just the utterly ridiculous...things like horrible fashion trends, a little Hanky Panky, and Bon Bons that aren't what you think, but will change your life.

I always have SOME creative project going at my house too, so you can pretty much count on postings of ideas for crafts to do with kids, tips for creating dreamy decor (complete with stunning guest posts occasionally,) and projects like how to turn an antique headboard into a bench.

And once in awhile...I write about things that really do matter too.  About faith, and family, and just living and loving in this world that doesn't always return the favor.

I never knew when I started this "blogging thing" that I'd find a voice that I didn't know I had.  Or that I'd meet people that I didn't realize I needed.  Or that I'd have fun in ways I never imagined....but I have...all of those things.  And I'm glad you're here.  And I hope you'll come back... and that we can be friends... and all that jazz!

Because I think that this Life is a whole lot like Dessert....sweet enough to eat by the mouthful, big and full enough to share, and on occasion because you took in too much...leaving you with a bit of indigestion!

Thanks for stopping by!


Make sure to leave a comment here and a random winner will be chosen at the end of the Party to win these earrings! (I'll announce April 9th, and yes, I did make them.  One day I'll teach you how to make some too!) Don't forget to click on the button below to link up to the Ultimate Blog Party!

Hi Logan!

Your linky title brought me to you.
`Life for Dessert`
Anytime there's dessert I'm there :)

Your the first person, besides myself, who calls themselves a Domestic Engineer.

You wrote a wonderful meet and greet post.
I'll be back for sure.

Visiting from UBP2011!

Yay....it's fun having new visitors! And to answer Carma's question...a penny can certainly be included with the earrings! HA!!! As far as that particularly lovely shiny penny...I have absolutely no idea what pile it might be shoved under now!
