Confused? Then you haven’t heard about the incredible community of SITS (The Secret is in The Sauce) run by two fabulous chicks, Heather and Tiffany!! We’re all about leaving tons of comment love on tons of blogs, and searching out incredible, new blogs. I have met so many new friends through this community and have had so many laughs with the awesome pool of writing talent shared within this group. And every day we all get to meet someone new!!! Cool beans! And today it’s my day, ...my day in the sun, ...my time to shine!
So welcome everyone! My name is Jeannie, aka Queenie Jeannie! This title was given to me by my husband Thomas, before we were even married. (Attention single ladies: Go for a military guy!! THEY ARE TRAINABLE!! Just sayin.) Like any hive, there is only ONE Queen, and yeah, that would be me. I’m the boss. And not because I’m bossy (mostly), but because it’s a really tough job and nobody else wants it! I’m a proud Army Wife to Thomas and have been since March 2, 2002. Together we have served through three Iraqi deployments and lots of military career ups and downs. Anyone who is, or has been, in the military knows that as a couple you truly do serve together, even if you don’t wear a uniform. I’m also a proud Mom to three incredible children! Alexandria, my eldest, is 20 and is currently living in Germany. (She’s married to the Doofus. But we aren’t going there today.) Next is my blond-haired, blue-eyed son Shane, 17, who is currently living in Wisconsin with his Father and breaking girl’s hearts left and right. Then there is Isabella, aka The Bella, who is 5. I may be the Queen, but she is definitely The Princess!!! She’s not spoiled, just loved….abundantly!!!
I have been blogging for almost three years, so picking only three posts for today was something of a challenge. So I did a poll, and these are what my “regular” readers picked!
I have regular “programming” on my blog as well:
Sun – My Sunday Blessings
Mon – Monday’s Monet Moment
Tue – Great Tip Tuesday
Wed – Inspiring Quotes Wednesday
Thur – De-Stress Thursday
Fri – Date Night Friday
Sat – LOL Caturday
Of course programming is subject to change if I get a wild hair and feel the need to share something special with everyone. Like my epic battles with Charter. Or my super, duper rude neighbors. Or if The Bella has done something especially adorable that day!! You'll also notice those too cute shields at the top of my blog (handiwork of April - blog designer to the stars...and us too!). Click on any one of them to read just on that topic. I blog about...well you know… life stuff,...a lot like yours most likely. I just wear a tiara. Yeah, really. It’s definitely how I roll!
And yes, I DO realize this is already much too long, but I have one last thing! A giveaway!! The requirements? Leave a comment (NO stoopid word verification thingy – yay!!!!) on this post, AND become a follower. Yes, it’s a bribe for more followers. So I’m fabulous AND shallow. I’m totally ok with that. What’s in it for you?? This……my cookbook!! If you want to lose weight, or just eat healthier, this is just for you!! Lots of delectable recipes, including pasta dishes, cheesecake, and chocolate delights!!! YUMMY!! My little way of saying thank you for sharing in my special, saucy day!! And I hope you will come back often because southern hospitality rules in my happy world, even if I am NY broad!!!! Enjoy!
