Welcome Mommy Fest Blog Party People

This is my first year participating in Mommy Fest so I'm pretty excited to see what Marie has up her sleeves. I think it will be great to meet new people through Marie's 1st Mommy Fest blog party.

I'm Angie (36), a step mom of two grown kids, 26 and 24. Hubby and I live in IL with our zoo, a turtle, cat, Basset Hound and Blue & Gold Macaw. They are a big part of our lives. You can meet them here

Taz, the turtle
Pebbles, the cat
Caleb, the Basset Hound
Bam Bam, the Blue & Gold Macaw

I enjoy working from home and having been doing so since June 2001. I was in direct sales for quite a few years but left the home party scene to focus on Internet/Affiliate Marketing. I have quite a few websites and I am just now figuring out what I might want to be when I grow up LOL. My main focus right now is my weight loss and fitness website and healthy lifestyle blog.

I have been featured on a few podcasts and Internet Radio shows and will be posting those on my blog and website soon.

I'm starting to blog more and learn the in's and out's of all of that. I love networking with others
and have been moderating a large yahoo group called Network WAHMs for quite a few years now. It would be great to see you there. I'm also moderator on a few other work at home mom message boards and enjoy that.

I'm having fun posting on my personal blog here at Angie Rambles and at my healthy lifestyle blog so hopefully you'll add both to your blog reader.

I am also on Twitter, Facebook and My WAHM Space. Hope you'll drop by, leave me a note and add me as a friend. You can read the Mommy Fest 5 Things About This Mom Meme to get to know me a little better.

I look forward to getting to know all of you too. Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Angie - I'm glad you stopped by to introduce yourself! I am looking forward to read more of your blogs - I have been on Nutrisystem on & off since end of January (mostly off since mid-April) and have only lost 17 lbs so far. I'm anxious to read what you have been doing. I really like NS when I'm on. . .

Hi Angie - thanks for joining us at Mommyfest and for visiting my blog. I love how you posted pics of your pets - my sister used to have a turtle but they had to give "Stanley" away when they moved. I have 3 dogs and a fish - I love my pets! My kids have always bugged me for a bird - we used to have 2 little ones but they died :(

You sound incredibly busy! Sounds like lots of fun. I am currently in my own weight loss battle so I will be checking that out. Good luck to you - I know it can be tough at times.

On my way to check out your other blogs.. and adding you on twitter! :)

Hi Angie! It's great to meet you, thanks for visiting my blog. We used to have a pet turtle named Tom, and he was actually a really cool pet. I think he was a yellow-bellied slider -- he was very pretty, but kind of mean looking because of his stripes.

Hi Angie,
Thanks for stopping by. I like the title of your blog. I have a bad habit of rambling myself, it drives my husband crazy. I like the pictures of your little zoo. My son wants a turtle and I hope to be able to get him one soon. Hope you had fun at the party!!
