Introducing: Me

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Well, hello there!

I am Melissa, aka Multi Tasking Mama.

That is me (with the glasses) and my friend, Jessie, meeting MckMama at Blissdom. (she is so sweet and genuine in person!! just like on her blog)

I have been blogging since June ’08.  Blogging has been such a blessing in my life.  It combines my passion for writing and sharing my testimony with the benefit of being part of an awesome community, which is what this Ultimate Blog Party is all about!

I am the mama to three teen/tween boys and wife to an incredibly patient guy.  If you stick around this site you will hear a lot about the nightmare challenges that parenting adolescents can present.  In fact, I started to just devote one day a week to it and you can link up to Teen/Tween Thursday here.

Mike and Jason (17)

I also have the sweetest fur babies ever.

Baby is fourteen, a Heinz 57 and living with cancer =(

Miles is my five year old chihuahua and Chloe is our 1 year old mini schnauzer.  They might love their daddy just a little bit *wink*

Thank you so much for dropping by!  I am excited to meet as many of you as possible this week!  You can also find me on my professional organizing blog, Facebook and Twitter.

And no party is complete without door prizes, right?  Here are the ones I would be thrilled to win (although they all look awesome!)

    Love the picture of the snuggly fur-babies!

    I'm a new follower from UBP, I hope you'll stop by my blog and follow back. There's a fun game for the party and you can win a $25 Target gift card.

    Have a great weekend, Melissa-

    You have a very beautiful family. Happy blog hop! 🙂

  5. Aww! I'm a fur-baby mama too! I love animals! You have been blessed with boys lol…I'm not sure I could handle that much testosterone in a house with one lone female! 😉 Blogging has been a blessing in my life as well–and I'm so glad to have found you!

  6. Oh my…I'm not sure I could handle 3 boys in adolescence! I was hoping mine would just stay little forever!

  7. I am participating in the UBP, too. Isn't this fun! I have a house full of girls so it is always fun to read about a house full of boys.

  8. Love that you blog about tween/teen challenges! Right now I am still dealing with the challenges that come from an almost 3 yr old, LOL!

  9. So thankful for faithful readers like you! Loved getting to know you better today through the UBP Thanks for being a blessing and hope we are able to connect further!

    Hi my name is Joni from Six Cherries on Top. Stopping by from the UBP. So nice to meet you. Hope you are having fun! All those prizes are divine. Good luck!

    Please come by and enter my giveaway for a headband set from Sugar Owl Design. Ends tonight at mid.

  23. All boys!! I'm so glad I've gotten to read more about the families behind the blogs. Thanks for sharing yours, even the fur babies.

    I'm still giggling at the Heinz 57.

  24. Stopping by. I'm not a pet person, but I love how relaxed your husband and dogs are in the photo. Your dogs must have a very calming influence. Some friends of ours take their dog to the hospital to visit sick people. I can imagine that dogs would love to be petted.

  25. Just stopping by from the UPB. We love your site and are subscribing to your RSS feed. It is so fun meeting other blogging mommies! Great partying with you & hope you can check out our site. We have a super fun Giveaway.

    Your dogs look like they're in HEAVEN all snuggled up like that!! I'm coming from UBP.

    The shelf with your social media buttons on it is ADORABLE by the way.
