It’s Party Time!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2012

YAY! This is my first year participating in the Ultimate Blog Party at 5 Minutes For Mom. Cool.

If you’ve popped by from the party, WELCOME! :)

I’m Ronni.

I’m a 30-something mom living in Chicago. I’m a freelance copy editor, a big reader, and a wannabe author. I’m currently in training to be a certified yoga teacher, and my favorite colors are purple and pink.

This is Adam, my husband.

My Yummy Husband

He’s a ghost tour guide, an author, and all around smart ass.

This is Aidan.

Aidan and Crookshanks

He’s nine years old and most definitely the BEST kid in the world. Smart, resourceful, creative, kind, and funny. I’m pretty sure he’s going to be famous one day.

We are a happy family. And we love going to Disney World.

It's Us!

We have three cats: Helena, Crookshanks, and Fi.

Beautiful Helena



Adam and I live in Chicago all year, and Aidan lives with us 1/3 of the year. (He spends the rest of the time with his dad in Ohio.)

Down the Block

Life is good. :)

It’s nice to meet you. Sit back, relax, and stay a while. I hope you subscribe and come back again. In the meantime, let me know you stopped by!

Happy Friday! :)

  3. I cannot get over how clean the streets are in Chicago. I visited a few years back and thought the very same thing. Happy Friday

      You know, everyone says that about our streets, but believe me, there are some gross patches! The street cleaners come quite often, though, so that helps. It’s a pain in the butt for those of us who drive and have to move our cars, but it does help keep the streets nicer.

      They’re really gross in the winter, though. Lots of dog poop after the snow melts. Ew.

    Enjoy the Blog Party!

    Our family love Disney too! I can’t wait to take our munchkin there (she’s expected to arrive in July.) I love visiting Chicago too! I keep telling my DH we need to go there for a long weekend…maybe once his work schedule settles down we’ll be able to go!

      Chicago is great to visit for a long weekend. Wait til it’s warmer out, though. I mean, it’s 63 today which is actually nice, but Spring takes a long time to come here.

      Babies at Disney are the cutest things ever! It does make travel challenging, but it’s worth it. Plus, babies are free. :)
      I hope you get there soon!

  7. Hi Ronni!

    Stopping by to say hello from the UBP 12! It’s very nice to meet you and your wonderful family! I hope one day to go to Disneyworld, what’s your favorite part? It’s hard sharing kids and I bet even tougher only having him 1/3 of the year, I bet you make your time with him very special! I hope you’ll stop by and say hello! Look forward to getting to know you! Happy Blogging!

      It’s going to be that much more special for you once you get there. All that anticipation? That’s part of the fun. You know where to find me if you ever want planning advice once that jar gets full enough. :) Ronni recently posted: Stay With The FeelingsMy Profile

  10. It’s so awesome that you regularly update your blog, Ronni. I wish I did.

    Like I often think if not always say, you have a great-looking family. xx

  11. Hi Ronni! Stopping by from #UBP12! I love Disney, too – so I really connect with you on that! And I thought you might like to know that we have the secret to great family vacations on a budget – which includes accommodations in Orlando and Anaheim! – hope you get a chance to stop by our blog, too!

    Beautiful family and kitties! The thought of living all year in Chicagoland makes me want to cry, lol, because I do. I’m ready to get the garden going and tan already!

      GIRL. You know how I’m feeling. It’s soooo cold outside. I mean, granted, we had a mild winter but winter was like THIS. I’m sick of it. I’m ready for 70s and 80s. Tank tops and shorts and sandals!

      And thank you for your compliments. You know I think your family is beautiful as well. xoxo
