Hi!

My name is Valerie, valmg for short online. I’m from New Jersey and I love it here. I married at 18 and have been married for almost 24 years. I am the mother of two beautiful boys ages 10 and 14. My youngest has Down Syndrome, my oldest has Wears Too Much Body Spray Syndrome (look out girls!). I HATE the misuse of the word retarded. I take it personally and find it very offensive. I love cats, and have a HUGE weakness for the Himalayan breed. (My avatar on many sites is a pair of cats I had a while back.) I love rock and roll, my favorite is the band Hinder. I graduated high school at age 15. I have lost more than 100 pounds since April 17, 2009. I love to try body washes, I love nice smelling things.

There are a LOT of great prizes to be won at this year’s Ultimate Blog Party but if I could only pick five they would be:

US40- One winner will receive a 3 day 2 night stay from Holiday Inn Main Gate East in Kissimmee, FL (less than 2 miles from Disney World) a value of $250. Provided by: Holiday Inn Main Gate Follow here: bloggin2noggin

USC 8 – $55 E-Gift Card for Amazon.com. Provided by: Kelly’s Lucky You

US104 – Shoot Me Now is giving away one $50 Visa Vanilla Gift Card. Provided by: Shoot Me Now!

US112 – $50 Amazon Gift card. Provided by: Robyn ~ Our Homeschool Home

USC 17 – With the upcoming release of their iphone app in the next few weeks, CmomGo is offering up a $200 Apple Gift certificate. For moms that do not currently have an AT&T contract and have wanted that Iphone this will cover the cost of a 16Gig 3GS iphone with the signup of a 2 year contract with AT&T. Provided by: CmomGo
