It’s Party Time! {#UBP11}

Hi y’all, and welcome to my little abode here in the blogosphere.

Ultimate Blog Party 2011


I have been blogging for two-and-a-half years. In addition to writing on this blog, I am a virtual assistant to Alyssa at Kingdom First Mom and Stephanie at Couponing 101.

I am currently blogging about our family’s Journey to Living Better. I also enjoy posting Organic/Eco-friendly Deals, showing off my gardening fails, discussing my passion for organization and labels, and things I do to to save money.

{About Me}

I have many loves in my life: coffee, my girls, Jesus, my iPhone, Shane, my Kindle… not necessarily in that order ;)

I am sarcastic by nature.

I like to drink my coffee while surfing Twitter via my beloved iPhone.

Said coffee and Twitter time normally occurs between 6:30 and 6:45, after I’ve had my coffee and Bible time.

I like my routine. If my routine is disrupted, I am sad. And quite possibly cranky.

My girls are my life.

Blogging has blessed me with some of my very best friends.

I alternate between loving my husband’s job and disliking it a whole lot very much. I remind him often that, “I didn’t sign up for this.” (Wait. Yes I did. Dangit.)

My ideal day is a Spring day with temps between 75° and 80°, laying in the hammock (wish I had one!) with a few good books or my Kindle, and limitless sweet tea (you know, where I don’t have to keep getting up to refill my glass), as I gaze lovingly at my children (who are playing quietly), and my garden (overflowing with abundance). I’m sure Shane is in the mix there somewhere, too.

If you would like to connect with me beyond this blog, you can find me here: Twitter and Facebook (Note: I’m not really on Facebook much, but I’m trying!).

{About My Family}

My husband and I have been married for almost 9 years. He is about to start his 8th year in the ministry as a youth pastor. We have three daughters, whom we homeschool. Things are never dull around our house!

Thanks for stopping by!
