Turn It Up Tuesdays #1

The first Turn It Up Tuesday - We are so excited!  

Take our beautiful badge and proudly display it on your side bar to encourage others to party with us!

What is Turn It Up Tuesdays, 
you may be asking?
Turn It Up Tuesday is all about being happy and excited and energetic, and having fun!  That's what we want Turn It Up Tuesday to be all about - fun! Turn It Up Tuesdays is a blog party, scheduled every Tuesday, designed to bring a boost to your week.  We know weekends are already great and everyone looks forward to it, but sometimes we just need something to keep us moving during the week -- and this is it! 

Do you have a funny story that just brightens up your day every time you think about it? Share it here! We want to laugh, be entertained, maybe even cry a little from all the laughter. Or simply share your blog or website -- we just want to have something to get us through the week!

We will feature the favorite posts each week and 
The Best of the Best each week will receive 
75% ad space on Epic Mommy Adventures.  

The best of the week will be chosen by hosts and co-hosts, while the best of the best will be identified by the hosts.  So submit your best! And good luck!

Then you can proudly show these beautiful badges on your blog!

Turn It Up Tuesdays 
are sure to be fun!

My lovely hosts include: 
myself, Natasha at Epic Mommy Adventures
Jessica at The Wondering Brain 
and Stacey at This Momma's Ramblings!

These lovely ladies have agreed to join me every week!

Jessica is the brains behind The Wondering Brain. Jessica is a Gen Xer and works full time as a Special Projects Person for a university. She is also a full time mommy to 2 boys, ages 19 and 2. She started writing her blog in January 2013 because she was suffering from writer's block in school. Thus, The Wondering Brain was born! The Wondering Brain is pretty much what the title says. She writes about her life of juggling family, career, and school. She likes health and fitness too.

Stacey, who blogs at This Momma's Ramblings, is a 41-year old wife and proud mother of three.  She is currently in her second year of homeschooling for her two youngest, in two separate grades. She is a stay-at-home mom and due to this, she wants to live the frugal lifestyle. She loves to be on the computer, listen to music, read romance novels, spend time with her kids, tattoos, and being with her husband. 

My lovely co-hosts for September are:

Lamanna Family Adventures

Miriam, who blogs on Lamanna Family Adventures, is a wife, stay-at-home mom of 2 kids, and owner of 2 large dogs.  She began blogging 7 months ago and began doing DIY projects about 3 months ago. When she's not with the kids and have time to herself, she works on her DIY projects. She's also studying to become a tax preparer online. She enjoys meeting new mommies and reading all about their everyday lives with their little ones.  She thinks it's very important that we as mothers enjoy every moment we can with our little ones because time goes fast. 

Denise, who blogs at the Adventures of a Jayhawk Mommy, is a 41-year-old SAHM to two little ones, Ginny (2) and Grace (10 mo) and the proud human to her 10-year-old dog Daisy. She has a love for all things Jayhawk, being a KU alum! Her life has had lots of crazy turns leading her to where she is today. After surviving a suicide attempt in 1996, she went on to work with college students then bravely decided to become a first grade teacher. She fully expected to be married with kids by the age of 30, but she didn't meet her Mr. Right until she was closer to 40. Denise can't imagine her life turning out much better than it has. She loves her girls, husband, dog, and her life, even on the days when she feels like tearing her hair out when her toddler throws a tantrum.

So now that you now a little about the party, our hosts and co-hosts, and what will be doing each week,
