Blog Party 2014: Welcome to the Circus!

Hi!  I'm so glad you've dropped in!  I've been writing here at this 'ole blog for over 8 years now.  It started off as Welcome to Married life and has kind of devolved into the circus!  That's what having 4 kids in 5 years will do to you I guess!

I've also partied with 5 Minutes for Mom for 7 of those 8 years, only missing one as we'd just come back from an epic trip to Saudi Arabia.  It's pretty cool to look back and see the way our family has changed in those yearly snapshot party posts.

So what's it like around here?  Well, March is birthday month so we've just come down from the high of multiple parties.  It's also spring break this week so I'm actually off touring St. Louis with my parents right now - a special trip for my dad where I get to play tour guide.  Unfortunately the weather is NOT cooperating, but we're having fun anyway.  I'm so thankful to my husband for just stepping up and manning the circus all week by.him.self!  He knows it's crazy town!

Other than that we do a lot of family stuff, take pictures, review some books, and almost every Friday I write with Lisa Jo for 5 Minute Friday.  I really love this time to reflect on things bigger than the 4 walls of my home sometimes.

Thanks for stopping by to visit, I love to make new friends.  You can also connect with me on Twitter and Facebook.  Maybe one of these days I'll get a smartphone so I can actually make use of my Instagram account too.

Please make sure you leave your link in the comments since Blogger doesn't always take me to your blog (I know, I should switch, in all my free time ya'know!).

Happy hopping!

Ultimate Blog Party 2014


  1. I love it! I can sure relate too. We call our home a zoo, so very similar!

    It is so nice to "meet you!" Just dropping by for #UBP14. I love meeting new bloggers and finding new blogs to read. You have a great site here! I hope you find the time to visit both of my blogs.

    Have a terrific day!

  2. You guys were having some tornado warning, weren't you? Hope you're all safe and that none touch down!

    Stopping by from UBP14. Looking forward to connecting on Twitter:)

  3. Your home sounds an awful lot like mine. It's a happy zoo around here too. Saudi Arabia that sounds amazing!! Someday I hope to be able to travel again when putting people in their car seat for longer than 30 minutes means much tears and screaming. Following your blog via the UBP!

  4. So nice to meet you!

    Following you now via Twitter!

  5. I think a circus and multiple children go hand in hand! What a wonderful husband to step up so you can have fun with your parents. Stopping by from UBP14!

  6. I love the circus - send in the clowns - followed you on twitter - my blog =

  7. Looking forward to exploring your blog. Hope we may find a way to connect our messages -

  8. What a beautiful family!! I always wanted to have twins... but now that I have four, I don't think it'll be in my sanity's best interest. :) That's great that you've been blogging for so long. I'm just getting started, so I'm sure I can learn a thing or two from you. #UBP14
