Ultimate Blog Party 2011

I’m a little late to this party (well, only a few hours late, at least!), but then, they do say it is fashionable to be late! Although I’ve never agreed with that, I’m the type of person that shows up an hour early to an appointment because I was worried about traffic or road construction, so I left too early. Anyway, this is where I’m supposed to tell you a little about myself and my blog, and I’m really horrible at introductions.

I started Pretty Opinionated only about two months ago because I wanted to do more product reviews and giveaways, but I didn’t want them overwhelming my personal blog (Pretty Nameless).  I love finding new products and sharing my thoughts on them. I’m especially fond of reviewing books, so they make up a good 50% of my reviews right now, but I’m working on balancing that out a little.  So that’s a little about Pretty Opinionated.

Now for a little about me. I’m a work at home  mom to the epitome of the “wild-child,” Jake, age 5 (going on 14 some days!). He’s a hilarious kid, full of endless energy and wit, and he really is the center of my universe. I read, a lot. I watch way too much TV. I love movies. Basically, I’m a media junkie. I’m a long-time punk rock girl (complete with the a trip to Zipperhead one Saturday, a long time ago), I lived in Japan for two and a half years (but before that, had never left the country even to go to Canada, when I do something, I do it to the extreme), and I’m chronically shy (which I hide by talking way too much and way too fast).

I think that’s about it! Well, okay, it’s not even close to my whole life story, but I’m like number 2 zillion on a long list in a huge hop, so I don’t want to overwhelm you! Thanks for visiting, I hope you come back!
