Feel like partying?

Ultimate Blog Party 2009This year I decided to join the Ultimate Blog Party thrown by 5 Minutes for Mom. I don't think I've ever done a Carnival before, but this time I decided to jump in. There are so many amazing bloggers in the blogosphere, there's no way I'll find them all without participating in one of these events!! I don't like to feel like I'm missing out, and this seemed like a great chance to find new blogging friends!

So if you are visiting from 5 Minutes for Mom, welcome!

My name is Elisa. I'm 32, happily married and a mother of two. These are my daughters, Sarah and Stella. Sarah is 9 and Stella is 2 and half.

Sisters in the Dark


We currently live in the NYC suburbs, but I'm originally from Italy and my husband Sascha is from Switzerland. We'll be returning to Switzerland this summer, after 3 fantastic years here on the East Coast.

I started blogging in April 2007, after a somewhat trying post-transatlantic-move first year, and decided to shamelessly share my lack of proficiency for the domestic life. Along with that, I also share some of the other things I enjoy while not cleaning, like fashion tidbits, shopping tips and sales, local (and not) events, cool spots in the blogosphere, and of course some adventures in parenting.

I have found many fantastic blogs in the past year, and I am looking forward to visiting yours. Thank you for passing by, I hope you enjoy your visit! See you at 5 Minutes for Mom :-)








P.S. If you are not visiting from 5 Minutes for Mom, head on over to the Ultimate Blog Party page and join in! You will have the chance to find new fantastic blogs and win some prizes! I'm hoping to win one of these:
- Core Fitness for Mom DVD from Busy Mommy
- $50 gift certificate to Target Stores from Shoot-Me-Now
- Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred DVD and The Biggest Loser Family Cookbook from Pudget: Losing Weight On A Budget

If not, there's a number of other cool things I'd love to win, like 11, 15, 21, 22, 50, 101.

I'm also offering a prize – go see the list to know what it is!

Hey Elisa!

Just got your comment on my blog and thought I'd pop in here to join your party! Isn't this fun?! You asked if I designed my blog - I started with a template/theme and then did a lot of tweaking to get it the way I wanted it. I'm kind of geekish like that at times. :-)

That's very cool that you're moving to Switzerland! I drove through the country last year while I was in Europe, but didn't get to spend nearly enough time there. Would sure love to go back someday! Good to "meet" you.

You're kids are beautiful! My first thought was that they looked very exotic, like Italian or something. Well that's because they are!

Hope you'll stop by Wishing Penny for my UBP :)

Happy Blog Party! I'm not the greatest cleaner either. I started my blog after moving to the U.S. from Germany.
