Welcome to the Ultimate Blog Party 2012

Hi everyone!  Thanks for stopping by my blog party.  Come on in and grab a cocktail.  We serve Bacardi and diet with lime here.  Relax and enjoy your visit.

My name is Nancy aka Bacardi Mama.  I have been married to my husband Dick for almost 39 years.  We have four beautiful daughters.  Cindy is 37.   Katie and Sarah are our twins and will be 29 on May 1.  Abby is our baby at 24.  We also have three wonderful sons-in-law and one more to come in the next few years.  We love them all.  But....the absolute lights of my life are my beautiful grandkids, Lizzy, Jack and Natalie.  They melt my heart on a daily basis.  If you've never been here before and look around, you'll see they get a lot of my blog time.

I spend my days working in a preschool and I couldn't love it more.  At the ripe old age of 57, I have no plans whatsoever to retire any time soon.  It is the perfect schedule.  I leave by 7:30 and am home by 3:30.  The real plus is that I only work 180 days a year.  I love having the time off at holidays and my summers free. 

I started blogging in January of 2009.  I had no idea what to expect.  What I found in the blogging world was wonderful.  I have made some absolutely amazing friends.  I have even become a contributing writer for the website The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans through blogging. 

My passions are my family, my photography, the Chicago Cubs, Notre Dame football, social media and fitness.  I know it's an odd little mix, but it's me. 

Thank you so much for stopping by at my party.   I hope you will stay for a little while and look around.   Please leave a comment, so I can stop by and visit you too.
