It's A Party!!


You've made it! Welcome to the party with a dash of sassitude. Can you believe the hundreds of blogs already joining in the blog party? Talk about fun.


I'm a sassy blogging mama married to an amazing man who finds me amusing. I think that's a good thing.


We have six fantabulous kids with varying degrees of sass depending on who they take after.


Higher sass levels definitely means they resemble their father. What?


I rest my case.

Why this blog? Well, I came up with a dash of sassitude and thought, "What a cool name for a blog". On a lark, I checked to see if it was available on blogger. It was and I clicked away not needing yet another blog.

A little while later, I discovered I had actually clicked make a blog instead of cancel. I couldn't let it go to waste. After a little brainstorming, a dash of sassitude officially came to life.

I've had a blast reviewing products, hosting giveaways, and writing about things only a sassy mom could appreciate.

Now I know you have other parties to attend to this week, so I'll wrap this up. Need a dash of sassitude in your life? You can subscribe over on the sidebar. You'll even have the option to subscribe to my other bloggity blogs.

And if you want to party with me some more, check out my other blogs: Enoikeo, My Meandering Mind, Penning Prose, and Six Short of a Dozen all have unique party posts.

Please leave a sassy comment before you leave. I'd love to visit you at your place.

The banner at the top of the page will take you to The Ultimate Blog Party. There are lots of people to get to know, blogs to check out and PRIZES to win.

My top three picks are:

♥ The Rocking Horse from A Rocking Horse to Love
♥ The webcam from Liz at This Full House
♥ A $50 gift certificate to Emily Rose

If those are already taken, I'd love the following (in order):
15, 37, 59, 55, 60, 39, 103, 87, 47, 11, 62, 34, 64, 7, 17, 46, 74, 100, 105, 104, 99, 3, 75, 28, 8, 90, 73, 70 - after that, anything is fine. :)

There are so many awesome things that it's really hard to choose. You don't even need a blog to participate. Now go have fun!

Love it! I'm a mom of three teenagers - I definitely know about sass! I have to admit I can be pretty good at it too - not a good thing. Welcome to the party. I'll check back soon.

Hi, Audra--great blog you've got here!

You had commented on one of my posts about there being another Audra that commented on it as well. That other Audra is my older sister--my best friend!! Yep, I'd have to say I've only met a handful of Audras.

You look amazing to be a momma of 6!!

Sudz N Bubbles said...

Hum! And I thought I was the only one that was sassy :)

Marianne said...

Oh, I'm digging your blog design. Must...Stop...No...Time...To...Tweak...My...Blog....

Seriously, nice work, especially with twice the amount of kids that I have here at Casa de Monkeys! (My heart palpitates as I consider your parent:child ratio!) :)

Life calls in the form of TurboTax; I'll try to come back soon!

Thanks for dropping a bit of sassitude at Writer-Mommy!

Smiles..

Mandy said...

Love the site! I have two young boys (3 and 2) and I would love to have more! Is it tough handling 6 kids? No wait! Don't tell me!! Anyway...happy blogging! Stop by our site sometime.

Marianne said...

Oh, and I just have to laugh at the dyed brunette hair...something I always thought would be a good social experiment (I'm a natural blonde, too).

Course, when I surprise people by wearing my glasses, I always ask 'em, "Dontcha think I look as smart as a brunette?"

No disrespect to my raven-haired sisters... :)

Love the standard poodles! My dear little Princess Pinky is begging for one once our older GSP wakes up in the green fields of Heaven.

Smiles again...gotta run along and be a grown up.

Amy Wyatt said...

Hey, Glad you stopped by my party and that you are considering joining us for Then Sings My Soul Saturdays. You are too funny. I have a friend Carol who I think you would love! She is always talking about being "sassy" and how fantubulous or fabulous things are. You would love it. I hope to visit some of your other sites too. I'm a little overwhelmed with it all. I had no idea the party would be this big. Hope you will come back and visit again.

Vader's Mom said...

Thanks for stopping by my party! I'm off to make sure I bookmark your site so I can keep hopping by.

Morning Artist said...

What a gorgeous family you have. I enjoy reading your posts. It inspire me to be a more loving mom and wife. You're a terrific writer, lovely blog too.

Happy Partying, thanks for having me here. I truly enjoyed my stay. I'll be back!

Melissa said...

You have a lovely family! I'll bet they keep you busy and laughing (the more kids I had the more of a sense of humor I developed!).

Blessings!

It's all about the Sass-a-tude! From one sassy gal to another, I think your "name" is great! I wish I woulda thought of it!

I have been here before, and you have a nice looking family! Yes, the sassyness trickles into our children..bless them!

Have a super par-tay!

Melanie said...

Love the sassitude! Except from my own offspring...I can dish it out but I can't take it! :) They, of course, take after their father, as well!

Lisa said...

Jennifer said...

So that's what my preteen daughters have been giving me lately...sassitude! Enjoy the party!

Eleisia said...

Sass plus attitude, a winning combination! Love the photos of your family.

Visit my party!

Faerie Mom said...

My DD just turned 14. I know all about the sass factor! LOL Great blog!

Mrs Mac said...

What a fun family! So glad I found this blog through the Blog Party. Look forawrd to reading many sassy things! God Bless :)

AllisonWonderland said...

Wow... how fun is this?! We tend to accuse each other of being Saucy more than Sassy around here... I think it amounts to nearly the same thing. I can't imagine how you find time for one blog, never mind several! I used to have one at www.mommyhoodconfidential.blogspot.com, but my Livejournal has taken over- two is too many, and I only have 2 kids!

Speaking of kids, I should go make lunch. Keep up the good work, you sassy thing! (and come on over to my party- heck, we'll make it a play date!)

Green Mommy said...

i love the sass! and with 6 kids??? I just had my first and i'm trying to cope- you are my hero! Come check out Green Mommy Guide (www.greenmommyguide.com) if you get a chance- we're dedicated to fabulous moms like you!

Jenni at talking hairdryer said...

Cute and clever?! I'll take 3, with a side of sass!

Have fun at the party. Look for me-I'm at the food table finishing off the chips and queso.

Naomi said...
