See You at the Hop

This is my first ever Blog Hop. I feel so underdressed and unprepared, but couldn't resist the chance to put on my poodle skirt and dance!!

For a big list of blogs to check out, click here or on the cute, cute picture above.

Welcome to Lil' Eskimo In Texas!! I write about whatever comes to mind. A few recipes, a few funny stories and pictures, a few ideas of what to do with the short people in your life. I'm fairly new on the blog block and would LOVE to hear from you!

P.S. I've now hopped to some other blogs, and not only do I feel underdressed and unprepared, but I feel completely clueless. I'm not sad I'm at home instead of at BlogHer...didn't even know there was a BlogHer. Ignorance really IS bliss. :)

About me. I'm that girl in the left sidebar picture. That may be the only picture you ever see. I'm photophobic, really. LOVE photos, but not of me. That little guy is the youngest of our 3 sons. I love being a boy mama.

Why Lil' Eskimo? A nickname from my husband. Shortly after we were married, he gave it to me because he said I looked like an eskimo all snuggled in the covers when I first wake up. Yeah, I know, nothing exotic like sled dogs or glacier jumping...just a good ole fashioned sweet nickname.

I've been inspired by the blog hop already, so visit some more!

P.P.S. I officially love the blog hop!

Hello. It's so nice to meet you!
I'd love to hear more about why you are Lil Eskimo in Texas.
I've never owned a poodle skirt, but this hop is really making me want one!
Have a great weekend.

Hey! Cute blog. Can't wait to read more about you. Happy Blog Hopping!

Howdy! My blog is rather random too - whatever catches my eye that day. And I love puppy chow but I've never made it. I'm afraid I'll eat it all in one sitting.

Hi Dena, it is so nice to meet you. First, THANK YOU for Hop-ing by my blog page a little while ago. I can't wait to get to chat with you more and get to know you a little.
I too am out of the DFW area. Very cool!

And Second, yes I have heard of IJM. I follow them via there webpage and newsletters. In fact, it was because of IJM being at the "Ignite 09" concert that I was even introduced to the sex trafficking of little girls in Cambodia. Boy did that open my eyes. And now my heart is on fire to save those little girls. I wish I could work along side IJM. One day Lord willing.

I hope we get to chat more very soon. Thank you again for BlogHop-ing over to my blog.

I hear ya about photos...I have very, very few pictures of myself, but am rarely seen without my camera in hand!

And I agree ignorance is bliss...I was the same way last year. This year I've just had BlogHer envy for months! :( Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Hi. I saw your blog name on the BlogHop list and had to stop by. I live in DFW too. But I've always lived in TX. Anyway, nice to "meet" you and I'll be back to read more.

I just hopped over from the BlogHop. I love hearing the story of how you named your blog. I am a mamma to two boys. I love being a mama to boys too.

So nice to "meet" you!

Andrea said...

Have a great weekend!

Hi Lil' Eskimo. I am like you, I hate pictures of myself. I have tried to get better now that I have kids, but we'll see. I use to live in TX, but now live in CO. I love the business you run there. It looks like such a great idea. You need to move here and open one. Thanks for liking my list. I like hearing when someone enjoys what I write. It was nice to meet you through the hop. I hope it won't be the last time we meet:)

Hi from Blog Hop! I love your post because I totally relate to it! I also feel under dressed and unprepared! I mostly blog off of other people's Meme's (or links) I had no desire to go to BlogHer and am having a total blast with the hop!
So nice to meet you and I love your blog title.
Have a fun weekend!!!
