Ultimate Blog Party Introduction!!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Hello everyone and welcome to my party post for:
Ultimate Blog Party 2009!!!
I hope you will consider becoming a follower or subscribing to my blog in a reader. And don't forget to drop me a line, so I can come to your party too!


For those of you who are new to my site. I am Cupcake. I am 25 years old with no kids but 2 furbabies and one angel furbaby. I am married to a wonderful man with Asperger's. Which makes him sometimes act like not such a wonderful man and brings out the redneck in me. We have been married for almost a year after he convinced me to run off and elope. We are trying to start a family but we are not having much luck.


My blog is called The Blog of Cupcake - - A Wife of Asperger's. I write about everyday trails, funny stories, crafts and recipes. I love to cook easy but homemade things that make my life easier. And I love to share them with you!!! I also post lots of pictures!!!! I currently have a challenge that I made for myself called the 100 Day Shoe Challenge. During this challenge I will wear a different pair of shoes (and share them) everday for a 100 days (or until I run out of shoes, I don't see that happening though!). I participate in several memes that are lots of fun!! I read every single comment and return them!! I answer every question and return every email. I love meeting you guys!! I wouldn't snub my readers!!

So kick off your shoes and unclasp your Bra this is a party!!!! Look even Rachel is here!!

This is the best blog I have seen at the Blog party! I love your background,recipes and you sharing about your husbands Asperger's. I have never heard of it, so I looked it up on the computer. It was very interesting to read and gave me lots of information plus they listed some famous people that have it. I was surprised. I am going to follow so I will be back. I am going to try some of your recipes. They all sound yummy! thanks
