Welcome to my Party!

Hello, my name is Krista, welcome to my blog!

Regular readers, if you don't know what's going on, this is a blog party! Click on the button below to get all the details!

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

I'm married to Brian and the Mommy to two little boys: Cory, who just turned 3, and Noah, who is 3 weeks old.

I've been blogging now for just over 4 years and love that I can go back and read through things that I've forgotten. Especially for my boys!

In my "spare" time I like to take pictures and scrapbook. I love to read, although I'm kind of on a fiction burnout at the moment so if you've read a good non-fiction book lately leave it in the comments!

We just bought our first house and many hours this spring have been and will be spent doing fix-its (also curtains!) and planting our first garden! I'm super excited to have enough room now to actually buy things in bulk and/or can and have room for storage! Here's to a better grocery budget! And no, I don't play the coupon game because most of the stuff you can get for free or cheap is already processed food. I'm definitely trying to go "green" in what we eat, use, and put in and on our bodies.

So, nice to meet you! I hope you'll stick around and at the very least, leave me a comment so I can visit you!


  1. Hi! Glad I stopped by for your party! :)

    I've been a blogger for 3 years now, although I only published 10 posts a couple years ago due to being ill... But I love blogging for the same reasons. I love to look back over what I've written, and I also blog for my children, so that one day when I'm no longer here, they will have it to remember me by...

  2. Nice to meet you! I love scrapbooking and blogging too. It is nice to look back at how far we've come.

  3. Congratulations on the new baby!! I tried to plant a garden last year but I was not very good at it. oh well, hope you have better luck!

  4. Beautiful family photo. WOW blogging for three yrs. I didn't even know what a blog was until about 2 yrs ago.

    Stop on by good luck with the contest hope you win something you wanted

  5. It's so nice to meet you! You have a beautiful family!

  6. I love the family picture, Krista! Beautiful!

  7. I'm hoping that someday my kiddos will look back on my blog and thank me for keeping such a record of their lives. It's so much fun!

    Your boys are adorable... I just want to squeeze your Noah and can't wait 'til we have a new little one around here. :)
