Ultimate Blog Party 2012

Welcome Party People! I’m thrilled you stopped by!  I joined in the UBP last year and had a great time.  I’m looking forward to meeting new people and finding new blogs this year!

I’m Poekitten and I blog about stuff going on in life.  20110806115302That means that there is a little bit of everything here.  I married my husband, The Man, in 2009.  We live in the Pacific Northwest thanks to the Navy.  We love it here, even with all the “rain.”  We have four furbabies…two cats, Edgar and Allen and two dogs, Molly and Joey.  I’ll admit I’m not the best housekeeper and animal fur is a common accessory for both of us. 

There are two big changes coming up for us this summer.  The first is that my husband is not reenlisting in the Navy.  It’s scary and exciting all at the same time.  We’re both looking forward to civilian life again. 

The second BIG change is that our little girl is due in July!  We can’t wait to meet our first munchkin.IMG_20120405_112021  We are so excited to be parents.  We know life if going to change a lot.  We also know that we have no idea how much!  There will be more pregnancy/mom related stuff popping up on here since Munchkin is about to take over our lives.

I hope you have some time to explore a bit.  You can find out more about me in the About Me and the  Our Story tabs up top.  You can find my popular posts listed in the left hand column.  If you have a Facebook page for your blog, I invite you to link it up to my Facebook Directory

I’d love it if you would come back and visit again!  You can follow Many Waters via Google Friend Connect (click over there on the left), Networked blogs, or Bloglovin.  I’m on Twitter more than I should be(@Poekitten) and you can also find me on Facebook.

Please don’t forget to leave me a comment letting me know you came by!  I’ll be visiting as soon as I can.

Also, a big thanks to 5 minutes for Mom for hosting this shing-ding!  If you haven’t joined the party yet, what are you waiting for?!?

  18. I'm a huge animal lover and I love seeing your crew proudly displayed on your site - it makes me so sad when people shove their animals away as soon as their are children on the horizon! 

    Best of luck in all of your great 2012 adventures! And happy UBPing!

We are kind of the opposite in the fact that We already have kids but we just adopted our first family pet. A dog named chloe. I am now following your site and can't wait to read more posts! Happy #UBP12

  35. Oh, HUGE CONGRATULATIONS on your upcoming addition! So very exciting! I have one of each and I have to say that the clothes-buying for girls WAY outweighs the clothes-buying for boys, so you have much fun to look forward to.  I have enjoyed exploring your blog -- your puppies are adorable and I love your Poe-inspired names. Can't wait to see photos of your new little baby. And yes, I echo another commenter -- thanks to you and your husband for your service. 

    Have a wonderful week, and so nice to meet you!

  49. And you posted yourself in a pic at DISNEY!  Yaaay!  ;-)

    Stopped by your FB page while UBP12 hopping, but when I saw your pregnant pic, I had to detour and check out your blog, too!  CONGRATS!  So exciting.  My first was a girl, and they are so, so precious!  (Cuter baby clothes, too ;-)

    Nice to "meet" you.  I love the NW, & I really don't think I'd mind the rain, either.  Best wishes on your new adventures & next phases in life!  Both are exciting.
