Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Merry Christmas!  I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas & a Happy New Year!  Praying each of you know the love of  our Savior, Jesus,  this Christmas and always.  May our focus be on Him, and the awesomeness of what He came to do for us!  My heart swells with JOY at the sheer thought! On a blogging note, I would like to apologize for my undeclared, unplanned blogging break.  I am planning to get back into the swing {Read More}

Weekly Wrap-Up {6/23/13 – 6/29/13}

{Post may contain affiliate links. See full disclosure here} In my life this week… This week was a busy blogging week.  I have really enjoyed getting back to blogging, and working on changing things up around here.  I have been trying to make the site more user friendly, while also, sprucing up the look a bit.  I purchased some of the cute new things you are seeing from the etsy shop Le Charmed Boutique.  She did an awesome job, and {Read More}

I Miss Blogging

Life is busy.  Wonderfully busy.  I am enjoying this season, with all of it’s new and exciting changes.  It is so much fun having a baby in our home again.  She is such a joy.  The big kids adore her.  We all adore her.  We lovingly call her our little sunshine.  In fact, I finally decided on a theme for her room.  “Sunshine.”  Slowly, but surely I’m working on creating her sunshine room.  I’ve been collecting some fun ideas on {Read More}

Happy 2012!

I wanted to take a minute to say Happy New Year to my readers! I am currently riding along I-10 through Florida as my husband drives us home from our trip to Florida to see my grandparents! We have had a wonderful time with them, and made some great memories for us and the kids! I’ll be having some picture posts coming soon from Christmas and our trip, but for now, I’ll pop in to say hi, and start the {Read More}

Just Me & My Blog

So a sweet Co-Hip Homeschool Moms team member, Rachael, from Finding Joy (a beautiful, lovely, inspiring blog, by the way), is hosting a fun You & Your Blog Meme. I love the idea behind this.  As bloggers we put so much of our time and selves into our blogs.  Our blogs can be a beautiful reflection of who we are, as well as a great place to store our memories, and encourage others.  We take tons of photos of our lives, {Read More}

November News

I’ve been so busy working on my new blog design this month I haven’t found much time to post!  However, working on all of the behind the scenes stuff makes me want to get to the fun part – writing! If you are viewing this post on my actual blog page right now,  you will notice things are VERY different around here.  You will also notice that I am not finished.   Like that ‘fun’ peachy/pink stripe border on the {Read More}

I Have a 9-Year Old!

Alright, so I somewhat crazily ~ on a whim ~ decided to take the plunge and switch my blog from to self-hosted,   It was not easy.   It was highly stress-inducing.   And I am not near finished getting it where I want it.   BUT – I did finally get all of my posts imported over here, and got the blog *somewhat* set-up with something that works temporarily, while I continue to steadily make the finishing {Read More}


  Working on some fun new changes for the blog!  Bear with me for a little bit, as things might get a little wonky around here.  Hope it wont be long – and the interruption will be well worth it!!  Be back soon!!

Of Apologia and Internet

Here I am, blogging from my iPhone again (or rather-still)! Yep, still no internet in the house! Have I mentioned AT&T DSL totally stinks? Actually that would be the people working for AT&T who don’t have their act together! Seriously! They said ‘you might be without internet for an hour at most.‘ some how that hour has turned into 8 days – and still – NADA! Moral of the story – if you have the option to have Internet other {Read More}

Hi!  If you are visiting from the Ultimate Blog Party, and here for the first time, welcome!!  And if you are a regular reader, welcome back!!  I thought I’d join in the Ultimate Blog Party going on over at 5 Minutes for Mom, for the first time!  I have been blogging since 2006, but have just never seemed to have good timing with joining in on this party – but this year, I am able and ready to party! 🙂 {Read More}

The BIG Homeschool Blogger Field Trip!

I thought I would let my fellow homeschool blogger friends know about this fun little opportunity!  My friend (in real life) Amber, from A Classic Housewife, is hosting “The BIG Homeschool Blogger Field Trip!“ I will be joining her and the others from our area who decide to meet up at our local zoo on April 27th.  There are a few others hosting events with her in other cities around the US, on the same day, so be sure to {Read More}

New Year at Boasting In My Weakness

Hi friends and blog readers!  I think I mentioned this the other day, but want to re-state that I am planning on making this a  much better year here at the blog.  I have had this blog since August 2006.  2010 was by far my worst blogging year ever.  I just didn’t post much, and what I did post was usually posting about not posting! Ha!!  I did a lot of thinking though about why I blog, and whether or {Read More}

A Year of Blogging (or lack thereof) ~ 2010

2010 has not been a great blogging year for me.  My posts have been practically non-existent.  I took a look back at what this year has looked like -blog wise – and it was a bit disturbing.  My most viewed posts were actually from years past!  But hey, I guess we all have years like that sometimes.  Blogging  just didn’t make the top of my to-do list. This year has also given me time to reflect on my blogging, and {Read More}
