Ultimate Blog Party 2010

A bit about me:
I've written 28 posts on Why I Love My Hubby.
I host weekly giveaways (leave a comment on this post and you might win a $50 Amazon gift card! Subscribe and give yourself an extra entry!)
I dressed like a cow to win a year of sweet tea and vlogged to tell about it:

I like do it yourself projects (which also means I'm cheap):


But this year, I'm focusing on projects for others!

I host a fun, weekly carnival called Works for Me Wednesday-it's a great place to find hundreds of helpful tips!

The Erdmann Family said...

Hi! My name is Suzanne and I've just started reading your blog. I love how open and honest you are with your marriage, family, faith, etc. I really liked following your trip to Africa! Cherlin, our Compassion child, lives in Haiti but we haven't heard yet if he is still alive... :( It'd be an incredible experience to actually meet him someday! Well, I just wanted to tell you how much I've appreciated your blog! Take care and God bless!

Christy said...

Hi there! I've been blogging for about four years. I started as a way to interact with friends who were also bloggiing, but they have wandered off on their blogs, and so just a few weeks ago, I decided to go on a journey for imaginary friends who DO still blog, and love it, and discovered all these great blogs, like yours where you can share, and gather great ideas! I'm an avid crafter, who crafts daily so I can avoid being an avid cleaner. ;o) I look forward to following along your journey, and getting to know you better.

TDM Wendy said...

I am new to your blog as well (Got sucked in by the conspirators in the U.S. government. just kidding-it was the compassion trip.)
I just did my post. I would like you to come to my party. I am serving chocolate chip cookies and sweet tea.

Howdy!

I've been blogging for a couple years. I love it, and wish I could do it all day. I also love to blog hop (obviously!). I'm a reader, writer, quilter, and mom to three teenagers (but I'm only 37). Oh - and my oldest is getting married on the 24th. Crazy, I know. ;)

Love your blog, and I'm getting to where I stop in more and more.

~Brenda

Julie said...

Hi Kristen, I am a daily visitor here at THAT family. Over on my blog, From Inmates To Playdates, I dish out a daily dose of crazy, and yes, before you ask, there is plenty to go around! =) I'd love for you to visit sometime. Oh, and super great giveaway!

every1matters said...

Hi my name is Joni (this is sounding very AA!) and my blog is all about remembering that to God, everyone matters. I found myself so caught up in my life as a mum, wife, friend, daughter that I had nothing left to give the rest of the world. Actually, I chose NOT to even hear about what was going on out there - I couldn't handle even hearing about it. Gradually God injected some metephorical 'balls' (can you say that??) and I toughened up a bit. Being a mother of three very young children I've accepted that I can't travel around the world and see it for myself - yet. But I can tell those in my world what's going on out there and make sure that everyone has the opportunity to play their part in God's huge puzzle.

So that's me, and my blog is http://every1matters.wordpress.com

Thanks for your awesome blog Kristen - I especially enjoyed your Compassion trip to Africa series. xo

Janna said...

Okay you convinced me to join the party.

Can you believe I was nervous to attend an online party? I better get writing!

I've enjoyed your blog for sometime.

Sturgmom said...

YAY! This is my 2nd UBP (I was late to the game last year).

You do some great things with your blog! Thanks for sharing!

Asher's gma said...

Hi, my name is Britta. I'm originally from Germany but have lived in the States for 22 years now. I read your blog everyday and wished I could write as well as you do. I started a blog last year about saving money but abandoned the blog in October when my grandson was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor when he was 11 months old. I started a blog for him to record his journey and raise awareness about pediatric cancer and brain tumors. My blog is http://aprayerforasher.blogspot.com

Love your blog!

mommieof4munchkins said...

Hi, I'm Linsay aka Mommie of 4 Munchkins. I am a WAHM, crafty knitting, sewing, building gal who is inspired greatly by Kristen and her family! I am also 3 Day Walker who has a passion for pink, each year I walk 60 miles in hopes to find a cure for Breast Cancer. I am an Etsyian, a mom, a wife and a friend. Can't wait to see what the rest of this year brings to this blog, it has been a blessing in my life for sure!

Skubaliscious said...

I would love to win the amazon card! I also dressed like a cow to get free Chick-Fil-A

VanderbiltWife said...

Hi! I'm Jessie from Vanderbilt Wife and I talk about being a really awful housekeeper, which is kind of like having a crazy family, right? I also have a very wild toddler, share recipes, and talk about faith. A lot.

Momstart said...

This is the first time that I have left a comment on your blog. I've been following you on twitter. I really admire your posts and I'm cheap too, very cheap

commoncentsmom.com said...

Well this is my 3rd party too..I think I found u first 3years ago and well I love Works for Me Wednesdays!

I am a mom who works from home and has a tween daughter.

Julie the Army Wife said...

What a great blog you have :)

Rachel said...

Love your blog and I'm just stopping by to say "hi"! Can't wait to meet you @ Relevant!! =)

Karen said...

I haven't read every post you have...yet...but I am working on it. Yours is one of the first I found one year ago but I have kept mostly silent except now and then when we twitter. I loved your honesty before you went to Africa but now I love your inspiration to me and to others. Thank you for going to Africa and thank you for sharing your heart with us and with the people of Africa. Your friend, @faithfamilyfibr

mandiegirl said...

I'm Mandie, a girl, a wife, and an aspiring photographer and seamstress(kinda- I just like to sew!). My blog is just about me and my hubby and my ventures in creativity. There are lots of photos and silliness.

Susan said...

I am also a Christian and a mother of a 10 year old son. It is great getting to read about other womens' lives.

in a world surrounded by men said...

"This is Laurie. She has FOUR boys!" That's how people introduce me. It's my subtitle and I often wonder if and when it will change.

I was aware of your blog when WFMW moved over here, but I have really been a daily reader since your Africa postings.

I'm bringing my men to Africa someday. I am.

I just read your "homeschool" post below and I couldn't agree more. Although I do home school our children right now, it may not always be the case and I have so much respect for the way you approach parenting.

Also, thank you for your transparency about your marriage. It was such an encouragement.

Shannon said...

My name is Shannon and I'm a SAHM to 8 month old GG. I blog about the diapers, drool, and drama that comes along with being first time parents. This is my first UBP and I'm looking forward to "meeting" many new bloggy buddies! Happy Friday!

Kathleen said...

Hi! I am Kathleen, mom to 4, violinist, and farm-wife! How's that for hodge-podge? I blog over at http://southforte.blogspot.com, and would love to have folks visit.

I really enjoyed the Compassion series, Kristin! You have a really fun blog.

Karen said...

Hi Kristen!

I've been blogging for exactly four months. Definitely a rookie who doesn't know what HTML does. But no matter - I've figured out how to bug you in the comment section. :)

Thanks for all the great inspiration and laughs. Both are crucial to us moms. As is Jesus. Thank you for letting Him use you.

Resting in Him,
Karen

Jar Full of Rocks said...

Hey there! Jenn from Jar Full of Rocks here. I just started life blogging about 3 weeks ago and I LOVE it! In it I talk about life and kids and what I've learned about God FROM my kids and about some really neat-o upcoming events in my life.

Cathy said...

Hi, I'm Cathy and I never know what to say for these things.:)

I love Jesus!

There...that covers it.

Help! Mama Remote... said...

Nice to meet you. I'm from UBP10 hope you come by and follow me back.

wenchie said...

Hi I'm Claire (or Wenchie, I respond to both) and I've been hanging around the internet since 1993, and recipe blogging in particular since the beginning of February (it feels like longer :)) - I post a minimum of two recipes a week, but if that's a little quiet for ya I almost never shut up on my twitter feed ;).

I started reading your blog around when you were visiting Africa, and I wish I'd commented more then - I literally cried at some of your posts. I have, however made the effort to pull all my household expenditure into order to start sponsoring a child as soon as I can, hopefully with the next paycheck. You inspired me to do it, thank God.

Kathy said...

I'm a homneschooling mom of 3 whose hubby just got word they may force him to retire within the year. God is still trying to teach me to trust Him alone. My hubby also has a porn problem, yet is not repentant which is a burden for me. You can't know how much I appreciate you and your hubby sharing your story. When I talk with other women, I'm so glad to be able to tell them there are some who experience victory. God bless!

The Girl Next Door Grows Up said...

Hi! My name is Laura from The Girl Next Door Grows Up. I started blogging in October and simply love it.

I really like your blog name and design. Please stop by and visit me! I am a new follower.

Have a super day!

Melissa R said...

I don't have a blog of my own but I love reading Kristen's! I am a stay at home mom of one homeschooled child. I love my life and I am daily grateful for my husband who helps support my chosen lifestyle.

Mrs. H said...

Hi! I'm Mrs. H and I am overwhelmed with all that's going on in my life right now so I've been a bit remiss in blog posting the past few weeks, however I'm a mommy, a wife, and a gal who's trying to live a God-led life. I've begun dabbling in photography and having a blast!

PJ Friedel said...

Hi my name is PJ, and I've been blogging for almost 2 years now. I blog simply because I love to write. I write about all the stuff that constantly runs through my head. So that makes it a pretty ecclectic blog. My passions are marriages, healthy eating, politics, books, and God. Not in that order. :-)

Gaertegang said...

Hello from UBP! This is my fist visit here although I have you "logo" around the blogsphere! I would love the gift card...I am sure I could spend it on endless things!! Nice to meet you! BTW: I love your banner...shot from behind are so cool!

Sue D said...

I visit your blog regularly and really enjoy it. I especially liked yesterday's post on homeschooling as I taught my kids at home too even though they went to public school--except for my youngest--he was totally homeschooled from grade 7 to graduation.

Kristin said...

I'm Kristin (with two i's). I've been reading your blog for about 3 months and love your honesty about real life. I've just started blogging, and love cruising blogs for good ideas.

Tammy Griffin said...

I am a SHAM, with one 10 year old son, who loves to read and cook, usually in that order. :) I spend too much money on books so began blogging for books about 3 months ago. I read, review and giveaway books at http://tgteecher.blogspot.com. Nice to meet all of you. Come visit sometime. And thanks, Kristen, I am a follower of your blog. Love all your insights.

Reading about Him,
Tammy

Amy said...

kpmattingly said...

Hi, I'm Kati! I've been reading you for a long time now. I mostly blog about our family and some crafting that goes on. :)

Wander said...

Happy Friday!

Susan said...

I'm Susan. I've been thinking about starting a blog, because I need more things to do! Ha! I've enjoyed reading your blog for a few months now and love it. Thanks for the inspiration!

Kari said...

Kristen, thanks for this fun opportunity to win $ and introduce my crazy blog. I'm a mom and crazy passionate about adoption and caring for orphans. You can find a little of everything on my blog. My posts celebrate and encourage mommyhood and helping readers take the plunge into the crazy amazing world of adoption! I love blogging, laughing, baking scones, encouraging, hugging, mommyhood and living crazy!!
Thanks for your fun bloggy friendship and I think your sis ROCKS TOO!
If your readers are crazy like my readers... come on over and say hi!! You can follow me to Haiti next week and see firsthand the delivery of the $2,100 of formula my readers helped raise!!

Hi! I've been subscribing to your blog for awhile now and I enjoy reading your wonderful posts!

Kristin Davison said...

Hi! My name is Kristin Davison from davisonacresoilfield.blogspot.com! I believe that this blog was the very first one I ever read when I set out to become a reader and blog writer! It introduced me to several that I now also love! I absolutely read WFMW and have participated in some of them. I also waited with baited breath and anticipation each day for an update from Kenya. My heart was positively moved from your Kenya story. A fellow Texas girl, and "Kristin", I just love weareTHATfamily! It rings true for so so many!

My Loss/Their Gain said...

Hi, I'm Julie. I recently started a new blog to post about my weight-loss fundraiser. I am a former missionary kid who grew up in South America, a mom to two great kids (7 & 3), a wife to a brand-new truck driver, a member of a great church, a coffee drinker extraordinaire, and an all around fun lovin' and non-scheduled person.

Melanie said...

Hi everyone! I am Melanie from TN. I love, love, love 'wearethatfamily'! I am a newbie, blogger-wannabe with no idea what I'm doing, but I'm having fun giving it a try. I love to blog about my faith, family, and life. It's so nice to 'meet' all of you. I look forward to visiting your blogs!

I love your blog. I am a stay at home mom to a three year old boy and just very recently started a blog. I love reading your post.

care said...

I'm new to your blog, but was just captivated by your Africa adventures. It's really made me and my family think hard about what we are doing to help those in need. We also have family that just moved to Nairobi. I am a mother to three (almost four) kids and haven't found time to start up my own blog yet, but maybe one day . . .

Serena Morrow said...

Ooo ooo ooo Pick me! Pick me!

nicole said...

Well, I've been reading for a while now. I'm Nicole, I'm about to have my sixth child, and your posts about Kenya were what finally made me click on the sponsor button and start serving a child in Africa. Thanks! :)

Laura Kathryn said...

Hi! My name is Laura. I have a blog that I update about my trip to Haiti two weeks ago. It was life changing. Unreal. Indescribable. Just go see for yourself... :)

Erica said...

My name is Erica, and I've been reading your blog for about a year and a half. You're one of my absolute favorites! I have been married to my wonderful worship pastor husband for almost seven years, and we have two little girls who are 4 1/2 and 2. I'm a high school English teacher, a volunteer, a daughter, sister, friend, and child of God. I don't have a blog right now, but I've been considering starting one for several months. I just have to make sure it's going to be something that adds goodness to my life and doesn't take away from my family before I commit. :)

New momma said...

Well I love, love love your blog! While I love to blog myself, I am not a professional like many of you. I most often blog about my wonderful family and friends and on some occasions I will share about my opinions on things. Keep up the blogging!

Chick Hatchers said...

Hi! I don't even know how I started reading people's blogs, but it happened about a year ago. I stumbled across your blog and could totally relate to the part of your family that you share publicly through your blog.

We are a homeschooling family who started blogging a chick-hatching project in 2007. It was our first time with such a project and I wanted to chronicle it for others because I had no one to compare our experience with. Do the chicks really die if the incubator gets too hot for just a few minutes? What if it's too hot or too cool for longer than you realize? That's what I wanted to know. Of course, you don't know until hatching time comes. But I blogged all about it and what I would have done differently. That evolved into another blog more about our family. I have a daughter who either has high-functioning autism or a 2-year developmental delay (emotionally/socially). The diagnosis continues to change as she gets older and goes through therapy, but it's so common that I wanted to put ourselves out there a little for others to know they are not alone. That's why I blog - oh, and for the release in doing so!

Michelle said...

Oo, how fun!

My name's Michelle. I blog about life in general. Being a mom of 2 boys, married to a patient man, and the crazy thoughts that run through my head when my A.D.D. kicks in! I love crafy stuff (sewing, photography, baking) and spend most of my free time muddling through one of my hobbies!

Elizabeth said...

I am a stay at home, homeschooling mom of two teenage girlies who is aspiring to blog and open an etsy shop. Reading your blog has helped me on my journey and I am preparing blog posts and gathering pics to start the process. Thanks for the inspiration!

Robin said...

You know I love you - even when you offend people saying you're a homeschooler! Proud to call you my friend.

It Feels Like Chaos said...

Hi Kristin,
I really enjoy your blog. I don't always have time to leave a comment, but I read it often! I love that I actually got to meet you in real life, too. And that we share a heart for Africa, a desire to raise Godly children and be generous with the gifts we've been given -- and hopefully adoption, too! My party post is here http://itfeelslikechaos.blogspot.com/2010/04/party-with-side-of-some-chaos.html

Lori... said...

I've been following you for quite some time and I am thoroughly inspired by your Compassion experience!
Blessings to you!

too Blessed to Stress said...

I've followed "That Family" for so long I don't even remember! It is a daily soure of inspiration for me :) I am Emily N. from :too Blessed to Stress" Over at my blog, we talk about all things home and family: how to make your house feel like a home, how to keep your joy in the midst of clutter and chaos, how to bless others with your talents, simple ways to make your loved ones FEEL loved and how to father our nests so that they feel like a sanctuary for all those who enter from the storm. For encouragement and a great place to swap ideas, come on by "too Blessed to Stress"... and if you're new to "that Family" be sure to keep coming back for inspirtaion, humor, and the daily challenge to do our part to bless others!

Brooke Lorren said...

Nice to meet you, I'm from the blog party. That's very cool that you've had the chance to go to Africa... great story.

Elizabeth said...

Hey. Just found you through Health Home Happy blog. I looked up the eggshell tip.
I have a blog/website www.nourishingcreations.com it just links up with my foodie blog. I make nourishing cakes, believe it or not. My 2 year old daughter helps too! I'm a real food health educator as well.

Alexia said...

Hello, my name is Alexia and I am a blogoholic LOL

My blog is a crazy mish-mash of whatever flows through my brain at any given time. It's things I love, things I'm learning, a scrapbook of sorts for my boys and reviews of all the book, movies and products I come across.

I named my blog The Mommy Rambles and that's literally what I do!

strong girls said...

i don't blog yet, but i'm considering it. i got a kick out of the title 'that family'. in our small town we tend to be known as 'the ones with the triplets'. my girls are 7, and my son is a 5.next fall they will all be in school and i'm finding myself a little lost. not always such a bad thing. -jen

Bobbie said...

Me!! Mee!!!! Pick MEEEE!!!!!

havefunbegood said...

I enjoy your fresh writing style! Thanks for sharing your family story. I do blog, but not for a big audience. I think my mother checks in from time to time... I would love to be entered for a gift card!

MarytheKay said...

Hi! I am Mary Kay of MarytheKay, and I am brand new to blogging! As part of my Turning 40 resolutions, I got up the nerve, carved out some time, and started a blog on my 40th birthday!!! I have really loved it so far. I like to make people laugh almost as much as I like Coca-Cola...but, honestly, I probably make MYSELF laugh more than anything.

I really LOVE reading your blog. I love your humor, your honesty, your gutsy faith. I admire what you're doing with your blog. I feel it a privilege to visit your blog and read what you've written each day. (And I promise I am not just buttering you up for the free gift card...However, if it works, I can even say more! Just let me know :-)

The Herd said...

I am not leaving a comment to enter--but just to say---I read your links to old posts---I loved them all!

Laressa said...

Thanks for sharing so much (of God's work where you are AND great giveaways)!

Laressa said...

Also, I have been checking in frequently since He Said/She Said and have just subscribed so I can keep up with what you have to share. Thanks again and I am excited to see His work in your lives through your Africa transformation!

Sharon said...

Bailey's Leaf said...

I've been blogging for about a year and a half. I started my blog as an online journal, a way to maybe start an online store (hasn't happened yet) and to talk about how God took us from the loss of our tiny daughter to being blessed with our adopted daughter. I love the Lord, my husband, my daughter, chocolate, creating art . . . The blog is a place where I can be and people actually stop by to read it. Amazing! ;)

jskell911 said...

I have found myself on your blog often, but thought I would come back for the party anyway!

Shop with Me Mama said...

So nice to meet you! I have been blogging since 2008, but only REALLY got into it about a year ago! Happy blog party week :)

Nice to meet you! Can't wait to look around!!!

Eos Mom said...

Hi, I'm Eos Mom, I've been reading you since you took over WFMW. I have a little work-in-progress blog about my life with two littles, my son who's almost 5 (eek, they grow up so fast!) and my daughter who is 18 months. It's pretty random but so am I. ;-)

Whimsical Creations said...

I have been a subscriber for a while. LOVE your blog.

daddyontheroad said...

Hi! I'm Sarah from Daddy On the Road, Mommy on the Run and I began reading your blog not long before you were kind enough to take over WFMW.

I love your blog and have shed tears reading your Africa stories; my husband and I got to go to Kenya a few years ago. Achingly beautiful stuff :) Thank you for going and sharing your experience with your readers!!!

Stephanie4Him said...

I followed you through your Africia journey! Amazing! Thank you for sharing!

Hi. I just had to check out your blog based on your title. :^) I love Jesus, too, and hope you have some time to pop into my place (#225) this week: http://tinahollenbeck.blogspot.com/2010/04/2010-ultimate-blog-party.html.

Lindsay said...

Saying hello for the UBP! Just started reading your blog regularly and love it! Come by and say hello if you get a chance!

momijitomitsukoshi said...

Hi. I'm Megan from Momiji to Mitsukoshi. I started blogging in August last year, while my husband and I prepared for our second trip to Japan together. It was supposed to be a blog about our trip, but after we returned, blogging had become such a part of life that I have continued (when I have time). I found your blog through Compassion Bloggers in Kenya, through Pastor Ryan, through The Pioneer Woman. That's as far back as I can trace it, but it probably goes about ten blogs further back than that!
You've touched my heart and soul with your blogs from Kenya. We have a Compassion child there now and we have one in the Dominican Republic (after reading Malborough Man's blogs from there).
Thank you. God bless you.

Lizzie said...

Wowza! This is quite the party...my party must be a total flop because I don't have very many visitors. LOL. Maybe it's because I'm a first timer? Anyway, glad I found out where all the party people were hanging out. And hope you'll find time to stop by my lonely blog.

Michelle said...

Hi,
It's nice to visit you.
I'm coming through from UBP 2010.
Would love for you to visit some time.

Amber said...

I love your blog! (but you already knew that, didn't you?) ;0)
I also already subscribe and have FOR-EVER. =P

Anywho.. my blog (Classic Housewife) is a mess. Not visually. I just redid the design and I love that part. I just have too many things I want to blog about, I think, to have enough consistency (home, kids, school, God). I've been working on that though and I think after all these years I'm finally finding my groove.

I also have a coffee blog (For the Love of Coffee) that I've always had a clear vision for but have seriously neglected. (HOW BACKWARDS IS THAT?!) I just started blogging on it again, with a better plan than before so we'll see if I can do it some justice now. =P
