It's all about me

I'm crashing the party. Or better yet, I'm fashionably late. By 8 hours. I've known about the party but I just couldn't decide what to wear. I decided on this:

So now I am joining Five Minutes for Mom for the Ultimate Blog Party 2011.

If this is your first time visiting my blog, Welcome!

When you join the party, Five minutes for Mom wanted us to choose which blog category we wanted to be put in. They challenged me before 8:00 a.m.

I hated to choose.  It was like being at a Jersey diner. 

I do occasional give aways and reviews, but that's not the main focus. 

Yes, I am a Jesus Freak, but I don't always talk about God on my blog. 

Yes, I blog about homeschooling, but I am not raising the Harvard bound. 

And I am thrifty, but not at the expense of others.  You won't see the latest CVS ad or coupons. You will hear how thrift plays out in my life. 

And most of that can change next week, except the Jesus following, because I may find something else that I am passionate about. 

If you were wondering about my name Accidentally Homeschooling, I am an accident prone person, who see's God turn things around in my life on a daily basis. 

If you want to know more about me, or who I am look around. But here's my 140 characters or less description:

Christian, excellent wife, boy-only mom, homeschooling blogger, giver of my opinions, morning person, Bible reader, chauffer, book lover, coupon cutter, happy!

I love comments and if you like what you see; follow, subscribe, favorite or whatever you need to do to come back here.

Thanks for visiting,

Maria and Michelle said...

Hahaha, all accidents happen for good reason! I had the same problem when choosing a category and then posted in two before realizing that was a no-no :/ Excited to find you as your description fits me well too :)

Stop by our blog when you have a moment!

Lori Watson said...

I had the same category conundrum. And my hesitation, combined with being on my phone rather than a real computer, caused me to get #44 rather than #9. Horrors. ;-)

Which category did you end up in? I went with the specialty at the end of the day (actually, it was 12:30 am) because I have Homeschool in my title. But yeah, you know how I love to be put in a box. Snort.

Thanks for visiting my party. Wish I got to party with you at boot camp! Still bummin' about that one.
