Ultimate Blog Party 2011

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! 🙂

So, a little about who I am, and what this blog is all about….

We are family of 4, with three babies in heaven. My husband is a financial guy. I stay home with our two sweet kiddos, to raise them, teach them, and love them, day in-day out!  I homeschool our kids – and love it!  To find out more about me, and my blog, check out my {About} page!  I was born a Chicago girl, partially- raised Californian, but have spent most of my life in Texas!  I am definitely a Texan now, all except  for the whole  “ya’ll” thing.  I just can’t bring myself to say it.  It is still “you guys” for me! 🙂

I blog here at Boasting In My Weakness, (when I get a little extra time), about whatever is on my mind or going on in our lives at the moment.  I love to share helpful holiday ideas, homeschooling information, parenting tips, marriage helps, books I’m reading, craft projects, and my newest craze – Real/Whole food info – WHATEVER is on my mind!!!  And there are always a lot of different things on my mind!! But I desire, not only to share what is “on my mind,” but rather, what is on my mind, with hopefully, a God-centered focus.  My desire is that in all things, in my life, and even on this blog, God would be glorified!

Since Easter is soon approaching, be sure to check out my {Christ-Centered Holidays} tab for some posts on great Christ-centered Easter ideas for your family!

I am so glad you stopped by for the party today, and hope to see you around again soon!!  I can’t wait to visit other blogs in the party, and get to know some other great blogging ladies!

You can also find me on Facebook HERE, and Twitter HERE (although I am more of a facebooker than a twitterer!)

PS.  I also love pictures!  Don’t you just love visiting blogs that have pictures to go with their posts?!  It is one of my favorite parts of a blog, and I often get bored if there aren’t many pics!  I guess I am a visual person!   SO, of course, I am including a couple of pictures of my family!  See ya ’round!


  1. I am looking forward to following your journey. I am glad that I found your blog on the UBP11! 🙂

  6. Just stopped by from the UBP. Love your pictures. Your family is beautiful. Also love the ideas for Christ-Centered holiday activities!

    Nice to meet you!

  7. Welcome to the party! Your post is great. I love the photographs, and I always think it’s neat hearing abut people who’ve moved out of state because I’ve lived in the same province all my life… not only that, but the same city area!

  8. So nice to meet you! Your faith is a beautiful thing and touches my spirit.

  9. Lovely to meet you, Katie, through UBP. It looks like you are a fellow “idea person.”
