Shake another hand.....

Welcome Sitstas! For those of you unfamiliar with SITS, it is a great blogging community meant to encourage visiting and commenting on other blogs. I am so excited to be today's featured blogger.

I am a mom to 3 daughters aged 11, 9 and 2 and one son age 6.
Photobucket

I am a wife to an amazing husband
Photobucket

I am a Christian and I am not a blog "specialist". Like me, you will find that my blog covers a lot of different aspects.

I have book reviews and giveaways. Check out the current book giveaway that ends on Friday! I have several more reviews in the next few weeks!
I have some DIY projects. I have another in process now, that I hope to post next week! We are doing a great tile backsplash!
I have crafty posts.
I have humorous posts.
I have some recipes. I'll start up Menu Monday again in September.
I have tributes.

(You might even find some other nuggets, considering I didn't start tagging in the beginning, because I didn't know what I was doing!)

Like I said, a little of everything! So kick back, take your shoes off (I'm a barefoot kinda girl), stay and look around. I love your comments and I'll be sure and return the visit!
