Are you new here?

Hi people! I just wanted to take a minute to reintroduce myself to many of you and introduce myself for the first time to those of you who may be new visitors! Make sure to say hello in the comments as I love returning visits!

In my little corner of the bloggy world, I enjoy participating in Thursday Thirteen and my very own Tell All Tuesday after I weigh in on Tuesday mornings at Weight Watchers. This blog is all about my family and my daily joys and struggles, but mostly about my two darling children. Kirstyn is 4 and James will be 1 next week! I am trying to be more open about my journey to loosing 100 lbs so that I can get some encouragement (and I have found lots out there in the bloggy world)!

I love blog parties and meeting new bloggers. I am planning to really party this week as there are all kinds of parties going on right now! Well and I just have to admit that I am also partially motivated by all of the amazing giveaways! And speaking of contests.... click on this link and VOTE for Normal to Natalie in the picture contest and leave a comment because you could win a prize too!

Hope to see you at one or both of these parties!

Hi Natalie, I found you through the scrapbooking party. I can so identify with you, I am on a mission to lose 100 ponds as well, and I have a 3 1/2 year old and a 14month old. I'll visit again.

Hi Natalie! I came over from the scrapbooking party links. I'm a mother of 3 kiddos - 6, 3, and just turned 1 - and my husband and I just started working on losing weight too. He is hoping for 100 pounds, and I'm thinking 80-90. I'm bookmarking your site so I can come back!

Hi Natalie,
Dropping by from Mommy Fest. Nice to meet you. I'm not sure if you have had a chance to stop by my blog yet but you might be interested in my weight loss/fitness site and blog that I posted about in my Mommy Fest intro post. I have been on my new lifestyle journey since 2005 and definitely know the struggles. Hope you'll stop by.
