The Ultimate Blog Party 2014


Ultimate Blog Party 2014

Hi, I’m Jenn! This is my 4th year participating in The Ultimate Blog Party and after four years I’m not sure how many different ways I can introduce myself without sounding repetitive, so this year I put together a little video that describes my blog.

(Watch video here)

Coolest Family on the Block is about birthdays, holidays, traditions, and family fun. I also love vlogging and blogging about myself and whatever pointless, sarcastic thing pops into my head, but I do all of that over at my other blog: I Make Myself the Queen.

You can read more about me on my about me page (duh) and over at my personal blog I Make Myself the Queen.

Ultimate Blog Party 2013


Ultimate Blog Party 2013
I’m using this post for the Ultimate Blog Party and North East Bloggers Network: Getting to Know You link up.

Hi, I’m Jenn! Welcome to my blog!
This is my 3rd year participating in the Ultimate Blog Party and I am so excited to meet some new bloggers and get re-acquainted with my favorites. I know how these blog parties can be. You’re trying to visit and comment on as many blogs as possible so there isn’t a lot of time to read a non-sensical diatribe by a long-winded stranger. For those of you in a rush here are the bullet points:

*Christian
*Wife
*Stay-at-Home-Mom
*1 preschool girl, 1 toddler boy, 1 small dog
*Domestically Challenged Lazy = Dirty house
*Fashion = Pajamas
*Family = important, traditions = fun
*Funny, haha!

Me blog. You read.
Blog friends? Yay!
Follow? Thank you!

Comments = 🙂
Thanks for visiting!

For those of you with more time and a longer attention span, read on. Coolness, awesomeness, and hilarity will ensue. You don’t want to miss it. There will be much laughter…it will all be my laughter, but still…

ABOUT ME

I live near Pittsburgh, PA. I’m a wife to Cool Daddy and stay-at-home mom to 3.5 year old daughter, Adaline, and 14 month old son, Jonathan (my clomid vbac baby). We’re the coolest family on the block and we put the “fun” in dysFUNctional! 😉

*I hate cooking. (I consider making a sandwich “cooking”.)
*Dirty dishes make me want to hurl on my shoes (and fyi, I’d rather clean those vomit shoes than the dishes…proof of how much dirty dishes gross me out).
*I love planning parties.
*I have a serious addiction to ice cream.
*I’m a birth and breastfeeding nerd. I think placentas are rad. I’ve never eaten one but it’s on my bucket list (just kidding…sorta).
*I totally crack myself up (I apologize in advance)!

ABOUT MY BLOG

01 MY DOCUMENTS02

I try to keep my blog focus on creating traditions and family fun and reasons to ditch the housework and spend time with your kids. Sometimes I post about myself and the kids and which pajamas I’m wearing underneath the boogers today (I’ll tell you now…I’m probably wearing the same pajamas that I wore yesterday. And the day before that.). The truth is that the actual “spend time with your kids” part kinda keeps me from blogging as often as I’d like…and that’s okay. Occasionally the blog will go silent while I tend to things in the real world.

Glued to Mommy

Glued to Mommy

Each year in April I co-host the annual No Housework Party linky with Non-Domestic Mama. Be sure to stop by and link up any (new or old) housework or anti-housework related posts here. (Don’t forget to add a link back or a No Housework Party Button within your post.) If you don’t link up, that’s okay, I’ll just weep buckets of tears and eat snack cakes while I rock in the corner to take the pain away.

WHERE YOU’LL FIND ME

I’m prepared for the massive amounts of subscribers that I’m going to acquire any minute now begging me, “Please share your social media links with us, Cool Mama, so that I can follow you every minute in stalker-ish fashion and never miss a moment of your riveting and entertaining bloggy ways!” Well, for you, pretend random stalker-follower from the future, I will do anything. If you’ve fallen in love with me already (it happens, people…don’t fight it) and decided that you just can’t live without me another moment then I’ve made it very easy for you to stalk my every bloggy move.

You can find me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, You Tube and more. You can find follow and friend buttons, RSS, and email subscription in the header, on the top of the right sidebar, at the very bottom of the blog, and at the bottom of every post. You’ll probably want to subscribe or follow one of those ways. Or all of them…there’s no shame in being a little excessive. We applaud it around here.

I’m not desperate, I’m just thorough. Very, very thorough. Ahem.

If you do follow me please leave me your links in a comment or message where you’re following at so that I can follow back (as in an “@” on Twitter, post on my FB wall, etc.). Thanks!

Coolest Family on the Block is committed to helping you find creative ways to have fun and make memories with your family all year-long. Don’t miss an idea, tip, or trick…subscribe and have updates sent directly to your email!

Ultimate Blog Party 2012!


Ultimate Blog Party 2012

Welcome to my blog! I’m Jenn! This is me…

Maybe you’re here because my sah-weet blog title caught your eye or maybe you just eeny-meeny-miney-moe’d it, either way I’m so glad that you stopped by.

This is where I tell you a little about myself. I live near Pittsburgh, PA. I love chocolate. I’ve seen the Back to the Future trilogy more times than any normal functioning human being should admit. I call myself “domestically-challenged” (Really I’m just lazy. And I hate housework. A lot.). I totally crack myself up (I apologize in advance)!
Now for the important stuff…I’m a wife to Cool Daddy and stay-at-home mom to 2.5 year old daughter, Adaline, and 2 month old little man, Jonathan (my clomid vbac baby). We’re the coolest family on the block and we put the “fun” in dysFUNctional! 😉

I try to keep my blog focus on creating traditions and family fun and reasons to ditch the housework and spend time with your kids. The truth is that I still spend a fair amount of time blogging about myself and funny things that happen and which pajamas I’m wearing underneath the spit-up today (I’ll tell you now…I’m probably wearing the same pajamas that I wore yesterday. And the day before that.).

So, if you like reading about pajamas and spit-up I suppose you may want to read some of my other posts. First you can try one of the many cleverly hidden links embedded in this post (Which I’m certain you didn’t notice at all. Because they are very mysterious. And secret. And not at all noticeable.). Then there are search boxes in the top right sidebar and the very bottom of the blog, categories in the widget in the left sidebar and again at the very bottom of the blog, and archives found in either sidebar or (you guessed it!) at the very bottom of the blog. Buttons to my most popular posts are in the right sidebar. I’m not desperate, I’m just thorough. Very, very thorough. Ahem.

I’m currently co-hosting the 2nd Annual No Housework Party linky until Saturday April 14. Link up any (new or old) housework or anti-housework related posts here. Please link up! My procrastination this year has left the linky a little empty and it makes me sad and I weep buckets of tears and eat snack cakes while I rock in the corner to take the pain away.

If you’ve fallen in love with me already (it happens, people…don’t fight it) and decided that you just can’t live without me another moment then you’ll probably want to subscribe or follow one of the following ways. Or all of them…there’s no shame in being a little excessive.
We applaud it around here.

Lastly if you do follow me please leave me a message where you’re following at so that I can follow back (as in an “@” on Twitter, post on my FB wall, etc.). Thanks!

The Ultimate Blog Party 2011


Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Welcome to the party!
I’m Jenn, or Cool Mama if you will (but you probably won’t).
My blog title probably caught your eye and I’m so glad that you stopped by. This party came at a bad time since I just announced that I’d be taking a blogcation. Don’t let that stop you from falling in love with my blog and stalking my every bloggy move 😉

Let me tell you a little about me (which will be hard because I’m terribly long-winded)…I’m a domestically-challenged wife to Cool Daddy and stay-at-home mom to my adorable and sassy daughter, Adaline.
Oh, and I totally crack myself up (I apologize in advance)!

I love blogging about my family and the new traditions we’re creating. I hope to help you find creative ways to have fun and make memories with your family. With my help your family can become the coolest family on the block too!

To get you started, here are some of my most popular posts.
For more posts check out the buttons & categories in the sidebar to the right.

***Edited to add that I will be co-hosting my very first blog hop / linky Thursday April 07, 2011 in honor of No Housework Day. Domestics and Non-Domestics are welcome. Click the button for more info 🙂
