A Blog is Born.


My sister Ashley introduced me to the blogging world about two years ago. I love reading her blog and so many others but have resisted starting my own for the usual excuses--with three little kids, I don't clean, I don't cook, how could I possibly have time to blog? (Miraculously, I find time to shop!) But a wise young man once said, "Life comes at you pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in awhile you could miss it." So this is my attempt to slow down and look around once in a while.

A lot of my friends have family blogs. That ain't what this is about--hence the name of my blog. This is just a place for me to talk about stuff I want to buy, tv shows and maybe some celebrity gossip--and a little bit about the kids for the grandmas' sake. Just promise me you won't call DCFS after you see what is going on in my home. My husband Sam thinks I waste a lot of time reading blogs. So now I can waste a lot of time writing a blog. oh, and creepy stalker/pedophile types can keep moving--I promise, you don't want to mess with me.

I love it already. I laughed out loud when I clicked over and saw the picture you chose.

Sam said...

I was hoping to be the first to comment, but Big A beat me to the punch.

I do think Brooke spends a little too much time reading blogs, but she has assured me that she will no longer wait two weeks to do laundry.

Finally, I would advise pedophiles and non-pedophiles alike, you do NOT want to mess with Brooke. As I have learned, she will eat you alive. Just ask Cam or Rex.

Tyler said...

Are Cam and Rex pedophiles?!! Yikes.

Sam said...

Tyler:

Good question. I would say "no" to Rex and "uncertain" to Cam based upon the fact he spends hours a day online and is unemployed. But, after further thought, Cam is probably okay. I have heard he is a mild supporter of Proposition 8.

Linda said...

You're off to a good start, Brookie!! I'm so glad you're doing it! funny already! And do include a LOT of your kid stuff! And pictures of the kids.

Linda said...

That picture looks like Sammie in about 15 years.
And I, too agree - don't mess with the Brookie!

Cameron said...

Thanks Sam, for your info I have found a job and will be starting soon.

Brooke, are you going to delete comments that might possibly offend 1% of your readers like Ashley does? I'm sorry, that's not fair, she only deletes the ones from her own family.

Sam said...

Camillia:

I am glad to hear you have found employment--holding out for management was definitely the right move.

After your first week, let us all know how Wendy's makes its "Frosty" so delicious. I have heard it contains no dairy product.

Ashley said...

Brooke, can you delete Cam's offensive comment? Maybe I'll go boliviate (sp?) on The Sea Dog. Oh wait that disappeared.

Ashley said...

Bloviate.

Cameron said...

If I could Ashley, I would bloviate all over your face! I pride myself on my maturity.

Reximus said...

Brooke, welcome to the self-serving world of the blogosphere. Hey, I heard that fatass Jerry-waste-of-oxygyen has a blog, maybe you could link to it. Ashley, why do you censor your blog? BYU's gestapo can't send you to the honor code court anymore.

Cam, who would win in a fight these days... you in your, uh, HEALTHY condition or the Brookie?

Linda said...

I gotta say, you have to be pretty thick-skinned to stay afloat in this family. . .how did Brooke's first post turn into a Warner family Festivus??

It's only been a day and I have my head down laughing hysterically. This is the beginning of a great blog (judging by the comments). Now you will have to be a "slave" to your blog Brooke. The people will want to see posts. For that reason alone I can't seem to convince myself to start a blog. I don't think I would have many people begging me to post, but it's the thought that keeps me from starting one.

ps-Cam-I'm glad to see that you are maturing.

I wanna know who deleted their own comment at 9:14 pm. I'm thinking it was Ashley, she's good at that.

D-dawg said...

YAY- I'm glad you finally started. You'll be glad you did- it is so fun. I love that it's all about you- the blog title is great. Mine is pretty much all about me too. I try to talk about my kids and my family but I have to try.

lindsey said...

YEAH! I am SO glad that you started this thing. You don't know how many times I've clicked on your name in Ash's comments section hoping that you'd started one of your own.

Does that make me a creepy stalker type?
