It’s Real Life Festival

Lately, I have been participating in a few blog fests (or whatever you call them)like at American Mum, at Absolutely Bananas and over at McMommy’s. I have really enjoyed them.

You can click on their badges and that will link you to their respective sites.

I think the best part for me is visiting new people that I wouldn’t otherwise have known about, to see what their “entry” is. I truly admire and respect all the women (and men, but the blogs I read are women) who put themselves out there in bloggityworld. It’s amazing how varied and clever you people are.

Thanks for hosting those You Three!

So anyway, I got tagged with a Meme by Marfa that I enjoyed so much, I thought it would be fun to make it into a fest of my own. I signed up for Mister Linky and everything, so I can be all professional-esque. I’m even trying to figure out how to make my own super duper badge. Maybe one of you have a swell idea on what to do for that.

The first fest will be Thursday–June 19–for no particular reason.

I’m calling it It’s Real Life–in case you didn’t catch that from the title of this post.

To participate you simply to take pictures at any given time of some things around your house. The catch is you can’t primp, prink or otherwise prepare the area to make it seem better than it is. Now I know some of you wouldn’t have to do that anyway–but that is why it’s called “It’s Real Life.”

Here’s your list (from the original meme):

  • Your Fridge
  • A closet
  • Kitchen sink
  • Toilet
  • Favorite shoes
  • Favorite room in your house
  • What your kids are doing right now
  • Laundry
  • Self portrait

I’m so excited to see what you all live like in “Real Life!”

And if you have any good ideas on what I should make the badge look like, PA-LEEZE, let me know!!

  2. Hi Jessica, I came over from McMommy’s blog. I’m going to try to participate in the Real Life festival on Thursday – it looks like a lot of fun!! Your blog is great, I enjoyed reading it. I was potty training the same time you were – I’m so glad it went well for you. The worst is behind us too, we are three days accident-free and he is starting to initiate too – I’m sooooo happy about that!!
