Piping Hot from the Oven

This is my new blog. (Just so you know, we are still working on building the blog, so please bear with me.) I wrote for a long time over at xanga, but after alot of thinking and stalling, decided it was time to move out of xanga and into the larger world. I don't know why this blog is larger than xanga but it is. Or will be. Or something.

There was considerable angst in choosing blogger. I believe I got frustrated enough to leave Rusty doing blog research while I took a nap. I tend to do that alot.

There was also considerable angst in choosing a blog name. For a while I was planning on using sperkins, which is very amusing to say out loud. Try it. Go on, just say "sperkins."

We chose sadiemama because I am pregnant* and Rusty likes to call me bigmama. When other women hear him call me that, they look at me with a mixture of pity and shock as if to say "Did you hear what he just called you?! BIGMAMA!" I don't mind when Rusty calls me bigmama. Honestly. I think it's funny. However, I didn't really want to be known in the great internet as "bigmama." Thus, the creation of sadiemama.

Now that I have sufficiently bored everyone, I think I'm done. If you are interested in reading other, less boring posts, please click on The Blogs of Old link.

*The title of this particular post has nothing to do with me being pregnant, having a bun in the oven, or anything like that. It refers to this blog being fresh, hot, and tasty. Much like a dinner roll. On that note, it's time for lunch.

i MUST admit, I am a little disappointed that sperkins was not chosen...this works though i guess...:)

Sperkins would have been interesting indeed. I'm also a little disappointed you didn't choose wordpress, but I understand why you went with blogger. The ability to use javascript and customize your own template is enticing. I used blogger for a while and liked tinkering with it.

Well the real kicker for me was that I can't put ads on my site if I used wordpress. Otherwise I would have.

I'm very far behind on your big news. So here's a late Congratulations! And now that I've found your blog, I have something to read when I'm bored at work. I have a couple months of catching up to do. So fun!
