It's Time for Ultimate Blog Party 2013
It's time to PARTY!! And what's a party without food? I'm having some homemade strawberry and cream cheese toaster strudel.
They are delicious. So grab yourself a snack and let's get to know each other.
I'm Jennifer, wife, mother, homemaker, home schooler, and part-time nurse. I am married to my high school sweetheart for 19 years this August. Life has been one blessing after another with struggles and trials mixed in.
We have 6 children, three boys and three girls. Their ages are 23 months, 4 yrs, 8 yrs, 10 yrs, 13 yrs, and 14 yrs.
So, what can you expect when you visit?
Mostly family stuff - I started the blog to share our lives with friends and family far away who don't get to see us much. I love taking pictures and this was a way to share our family with them. I also share life with a big family; packing, our struggle with a grocery budget, my attempts at frugal shopping, etc.
I also post some recipes. I enjoy cooking; the clean up, not so much (but hey, I have a crew to help with that, right?). With the size and various tastes of my family, I do a lot of experimenting with recipes I find. I try to share the favs (though I'm often in such a hurry I forget some of the pictures)!! The menu planning has helped tremendously with food prep since I also DESPISE grocery shopping.
As I mentioned before, I home school the crew. One of my goals for next school year is to document the year blog style - a blogging yearbook!! I think that sounds like such fun.
Any other questions, just ask. Believe me, I don't mind. Here's a post with some of the most asked questions. Leave a comment and introduce yourself. I love meeting new people in the blog world and I love getting new ideas to try on my family (they love it too).
Thanks so much for stopping by and have fun at the Ultimate Blog Party 2013.
