That's Where The Party's At!

With all apologies to the Newsboys (LOL)...this is from their song "Wherever We Go":

"Hands up
Holler back here
L
et’s throw this party in gear
We brought the welcome mat
Wherever we go, that’s where the party’s at

"Hands up
Holler back now
We don’t claim any know-how
We’re giving God all that
Wherever we go, that’s where the party’s at"

Well, better late than never. *wink* The 5 Minutes For Mom blog party starts today. There are already over 280 "guests" participating in this little "meet and greet". So, let me introduce myself!

I'm a born-Catholic, college-ministry-Lutheran, and recently-converted-swingin'-from-the-chandeliers-Pentecostal, daughter of the King.

I'm also a nearly 39-year-old SAHM married to an awesome man of "Scandahoovian" descent from Michigan's great Upper Peninsula with a soon-to-be-three-year-old Svenska flicka and a soon-to-be-14-month-old Svenska pojke. I've been pregnant and/or nursing someone since June 2003! *wink*

I started this blog to help me have a little piece of myself and a place to write and figure things out following the arrival of "Pojke" in 2006.

A
nd, to help round out that picture, here's some cool archived things to help you get to know me even better:

The closest thing I have to a testimony

My faith walk has led me here, here, and here.

Things you might not know about me here, here, and here .

My quirky humor here, here, and here.

Now, please feel free to go to party central and check out all the other bloggy folks participating. Maybe you'll find someone new and interesting to gab with. Just remember your breath mints and no double dipping with your chips, please!! LOL

Thanks for visiting my blog!
I just started the PreK thing...here is the link to the curriculum that I am using...so far I really like it. I will have to move ahead on the reading, just b/c my son is 4.5 and is ready for more than what this has, but it is right on track with my 2.5yr old.

Hi! Following the party links. Heh....loved your Newsboys reference. That song drove me up the wall at first -- then -- somehow it hit a "spot" and now I love it. I have a similar background as yourself interestingly enough, in that there's a wide range of denominational backgrounds. I'm all over the board! Kinda fun.

Unashamed said...

I think I'll poke my head in at the party. Probably won't list my blog - not sure I have the emotional energy to meet others right now - but it's always fun finding good new blogs for reading pleasure!

Debbie said...

Great to meet you! I really enjoyed your testimony post especially. I just posted mine for the first time last week and it was a very spiritual, testimony building experience. I love how blogging has become a faith-promoting experience for me!

Enjoy the rest of the party!
