What's in a this is not Shakespeare ;)

I thought I would share with all of blogland Exactly where my blog name came from :) It is always interesting to find out what is behind the blogger and it usually starts with their name. Well as you know my little sister started this blog for me some time ago. Shortly after she made it I decided that it needed more of me in it. So I revamped my whole blog even my name. Not that hers wasn't was just that..her vision of my blog. So after I beautified it I began to ponder on a name. I thought what does my blog mean to me? Well it is a place where I can go that is all my own. A place away from my everyday life where I can speak on any subject  or craft that I want. I instantly thought of Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. In the story she wanted a new place, or adventure and after it was all over she wanted to go home. So what did she do ....she clicked her heels and said the infamous"There is no place like home". That was it, with my own special twist.  I loved the thought of a blog for the escape and outlet it offered but at the end of the day home is always where my heart is. Hence the name There is no place like homemade.

I really enjoy blogging which I never thought I would. Meeting new moms who share the same interest is always great. That I have followers is still a bit surreal for me. I love that people are really interested in me. In time you will get to know me a little. You will find I am a very honest person. I am also a very nice person and usually get my feelings hurt way to easy. That being said I really dislike  passive aggressive mean gestures and comments. So if you ever feel like you need to express something with me feel free to email me. There is a link in my profile to contact me. Amazing feature...everyone should have it!  I am always understanding and usually will give a person a chance to prove themselves before making judgments or blunt assumptions.

Anyway I just wanted to share a little bit about myself and let my readers know I am always here for conversation. Even if you feel it isn't suitable for comments email me. If I in any way offend someone please email me. I will always be open for discussion and I also know how to admit when I wrong.
So to my followers I am grateful...... I hope you enjoy my journey down my own yellow brick road!;)


  1. love your closing sentence! I love that you came up with your blog name from the Wizard of Oz!

    That is great! The Wizard of Oz is awesome and also holds a place in my heart!

    I moved from Egypt to Spain for college. In Egypt there is a resort town called Sharm el Sheikh that has a club called Pacha. Pacha is a chain of clubs all over the world that originated in Spain. When I went to the Pacha in Madrid for the first time, a week after I moved there, they had an Oz theme with "There's no place like home" all over. It was amazing and fit so perfectly with me coming to a new place, but there was a bit of my old home there too :D

  3. Thank You Elisa! I loved the Wizard of Oz growing up and even to this day.

    Wow Egypt to Spain...I am jealous. My motherinlaw is from the Azores and I would love to visit the area. me and M.r Wonderful have talked about taking the kids there one day. It would be so nice to hit a few other places like The mainland (Portugal) and Spain.

  4. I want to take my son all over that area too :) All over the world actually!

    Have you seen the Wizard of Oz movie meshed with Pink Floyd? Dark Side of the Rainbow? I loved it!
