Ultimate Blog Party 2014

Ultimate Blog Party 2014

Hi! My name is Christie. Just today I stumbled upon the Ultimate Blog Party. Being a relatively new blogger, I decided this is just what I needed. What an exciting opportunity this is!!

Family Picture

I have the privilege of being a homemaker and a stay-at-home mom. Taking care of my husband and child is the most rewarding job that I could have! I love cooking, trying new recipes, menu planning, and yes, even grocery shopping. I am always looking for new ways to organize and run my home more efficiently.

Two years ago, my husband and I welcomed our son into the world through the wonderful gift of adoption. While our journey wasn’t easy, we wouldn’t trade it for anything. We are currently starting the adoption process again.


A year ago I started my blog to share recipes and ideas with family and friends. It’s also a great place for me to journal our adoption story and keep people updated with where we are at in our journey. Just recently I started a gluten free diet, so I am starting  to share a bit about that as well. (I think anyone on any kind of diet can relate that it is NOT easy!)

Some of my popular posts include:

Let the Waiting Begin

Waiting for You Adoption Update

This year I look forward to connecting with other bloggers and sharing more on social media.

Thanks for stopping by! Please leave a comment to introduce yourself. You can also find me on Facebook and Pinterest.

    Hi Christie, I’m visiting from the #UBP14. It’s so nice to meet you. We grew our family through the blessing of adoption. So thankful the Lord allowed us to enjoy the gift of our daughter. Enjoy every minute – my three are grown. It happens so fast! Now we’re enjoying the grandparent stage and I must say, “It’s fantabulous!!” Enjoy the party!

    I look forward to reading about your adoption story! I saw your husband’s browns t-shirt in the picture. My husband is a Browns fan! I guess I cheer for them too even though I don’t know much about football haha Can’t wait to read more of your blog!

      Thanks Elizabeth! Yes…my husband is a HUGE Browns fan. He was raised in Ohio. I’m not really into football, but if I had to pick a team it would be the Bears…I’m from the Chicago area. My husband roots for them too though:-) Thanks for stopping by!!
