But I'll Do Anything To Get Out Of It!

meet you at the blog hop...






















I'm Jen and I'm somewhat new to the blog world, and I've always thought that a party is a great way to meet people. Robing of http://pensieve.typepad.com/pensieve is hosting a Blog Hop party and anyone who's anyone will be there.

I am a stay-at-home mom of two little girls that keep me very busy. I love my morning walks, chic lit novels, I live for mom's night out and my guilty pleasure is lifetime network movies and reality TV. They are like a train wreck -- I can't look away. Maybe they make me feel more normal.

Anyway, I was in marketing/PR in my previous life (5 long years ago) and my blog was a small way back into writing. I'm enjoying it very much!

My contribution to the party is a super-easy recipe for White Sangria that my sister-in-law, Janelle, passed along. The problem is - it is so tasty, it goes down way too easy and before you know it - you're loopy! Enjoy...and I hope you'll come back.

All you need is 1/4 cup of brandy and 2 tablespoons of sugar (mix these two ingredients together first.) Then add 1 bottle of somewhat dry white wine (I use pinot grigio) and 2 cups of ginger ale. then drop in some frozen mixed fruit into the pitcher. Then let it set in the fridge for a couple of hours to soak up the fruit juice. Then serve, and serve and serve. Yum!

Mmm. sangria. Excellent choice. I've never had white sangria, but I'll be sure to try this recipe once my little one joins us in January. Nice to meet you. Please stop by sometime.

I hope you're a subscriber to "better late than never"...even to your own party.

I'm doing my best to meet and greet EVERYONE, but it sure is taking a long time! Get this--I was in marketing/PR, too, before I had kids! I think a lot of bloggers might've shared that profession "before".

Thanks for joining in, welcome to blogging, and I do hope you'll visit PENSIEVE as you have time!
