Dishing It Party @ Serenity Now

I made a new friend today!  Her name is Amanda at Serenity Now.  She is having a party about getting to know our fellow bloggers!  She also has a post on blog etiquette that I am in love with!  So my name is Kenzie and I'm here to introduce my blog and make new friends!

~How long have you been blogging?
I have been blogging since December of 2008 and what I mean by that is I posted an amazing 5 posts in 2008, 4 posts in 2009 and 29 posts in 2010.  I am now addicted and am an avid blogger.

~Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging to tell stories about my family, my life and it was an easy way to share information with my family.  I fell off the wagon!  I then came across some crafting blogs and was reinspired.  I always have some sort of craft or project going and I thought it would be really neat to be able to share my crafts, projects, and thrift finds with everyone.

~Tell me about your blog's title. Why did you choose it?
9 o'clock Dance of Joy....The 9 o'clock Dance of Joy is what happens when the kids and husband go to bed and I have a little "me" time.  Time to play on the computer, time to craft, time to watch "real" tv (no cartoons), time to myself to reflect on the day without the sticky fingers helping hands of my little girls!  I chose the title because I remember mom telling me about her 9 o'clock Dance of Joy when we were little and never truly understanding the meaning behind it until I had my girls.

~What do you blog about?
Mainly I blog about the craft projects I have going on and my bargain finds that I makeover.  But I do blog about my life and my family as well.

~What is your favorite thing about blogging?
Making new friends!  It is nice to be able to connect with people who share the same interests as me.  I love finding inspiration from other people's creations, reading their stories about their kids and crazy lives and sharing hints, tips and tricks for crafting and being a Mom.

~If you had to choose one famous person to become your blog's next devoted reader, who would you pick?
I have no idea....is that sad?

~What's the funniest comment you've ever received on a blog post?
No hilarious comments that I can recall.  Only nice comments!  :)

Do you want to make some new friends?  Link up to Amanda's party!

Hi Kenzie;

I'm visiting from the "Dish" party at Serenity Now.

I really like your blog.

Your crafts are lovely; you are very talented.

I like your use of "strikethroughs" in your posts - that is just my sense of humour as well.

All the best in blogging.

Hello! Stopping over from Amanda's. I love your blog title and its meaning to you - I think most of us can relate! Happy partying and have a blessed week!

Paula said...

I'm visiting from Amanda's party. When I read the meaning behind your blog's title, I had to laugh. I'm surprised that you aren't passed out along with your kids and husband if you work all day and care for them when you aren't working. I looked through your blog and you have some very nice craft ideas. Congrats on being featured at Tatertots and Jello.

Jennifer said...

Hi...stopping in from Amanda's party. I am anxious to check out more of your blog. And I love the name of your blog too...thanks for sharing the story! Off to read your blog :)

Nadir @ Hodgepodge said...

Hi I'm visiting from Amanda's party. I love the inspiration behind your blog title & how it originally came from your mother, how cute! :-) Take care!

FrouFrouBritches said...

I am so in love with your blog name. I feel ya girl! I have days when I can't wait and they end up in bed about 8:30 'cause I need some me time! UGH!

Love the Decor! said...

In from the "dish" party
I love the explanation fro your blog name!!

Melissa said...

I can totally relate to needing "me time." Now that my son is 12yo, I can take that break in the afternoon. Good thing, too, because I'm usually the one who's falling asleep by 8pm. :)

Meri said...

I think that there is a collective sigh of relief and a little dance from all moms at about that time every night! Love it!

Angie @ The Country Chic Cottage said...

AHhhh!
The 9 o'clock dance! I remember those days.
Now I do the "empty nest shuffle"...more like I wander aimlessly through my day...trying to figure out what I'm going to do with myself! Ha!

thanks for visiting my blog Kenzie... I'll be back to read your blog!
In the mean time keep dancing...

Ashley Allen said...

That title is just too cute!! I know the feeling! Our kids must be around the same age. Carson (4-3-07 and Camden 10-21-08) I gots the boys though. Cute blog!

Southerner said...

Nothing like going to a blog and reading, "I almost ran over a guy on a moped," and finding out it was to get to a door in a trash pile. Ah, true kindred spirits! Love the title of your blog.

Frugal Home Designs said...

I love your blog title. It is something all moms can relate to.

Andrea said...

What a cute name for a blog. Every mommy needs some "me time" to relax and prepare to give of ourselves for the next day.

Melinda said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. It's nice to meet you. I do the dance of joy as well except I come down stairs and slide across the floor and say with my hands in the air, FREEDOM! Ha ha ha.

Laurel @ Ducks in a Row said...
