Hi, I am Mommy readers!

My name is
Karen Hossink, and I blog at Surviving
. I have enjoyed reading I
am Mommy
for quite some time now, and on March 12 I am going to have the
pleasure of meeting Amanda and spending a couple of days with her. (Are you
totally jealous???)

Well, not
being ones who want to keep a good thing all to ourselves, Amanda and I thought
of something so you can join in our fun. 
One of the activities for our play-date is going to be a video
interview. That is, we're going to pull out the webcam and I am going to
interview Amanda. And she'll post the interview right here for your viewing

Not only
that, but you get to supply the

Maybe you've
seen one of the Q & A posts Amanda has done here previously, but you didn't
get around to asking your question. Or maybe one of her answers provoked
another question in you. Whatever the case, if you email me your question by
March 10, I'll ask her for you. Up
close and personally!

Send your
question to Karen(at)IrritableMother(dot)com, with "Amanda" in the
subject line.


Looking forward to hearing from you. REALLY looking forward to meeting


You can also check me out over at Karen's blog today!

I am so, so excited to be able to go and see Karen speak at the Moms Night Out event in Burnsville on March 13th.  But to take it a step further, I would love to meet you too!!  I think I know most of the MN bloggers who read my blog pretty well… you are an amazing group of ladies! 

So, I would love to extend and invitation to you to meet up at this event and share in some fellowship and fun!  This event has nothing to do with me or my blog… its all about you.

About MOMS!  Uplifting moms.  Supporting moms.  Loving our fellow moms.  Have some fun together as moms!

And I really felt like it would be a great opportunity to meet some of the wonderful women that I call friends.

If you are interested in hanging out just send me an email with MOM EVENT in the subject line.

Cant wait to hear from you!
