Party Like it’s…2014, Ultimate Blog Party is Here

Ultimate Blog Party 2014

I always love this time of year (UBP!!!), and I think this is probably at least the fourth time I’ve participated? With other blogs I’ve had I know. And I love finding new blogs! And really creative people to follow on all my other social media sites!!

So, grab a comfy seat and something to drink (I’m southern so it’s got to be cold water, preferably with fresh fruit or cucumber slices in it, or sweet tea) and let’s get to know each other a bit.

My name is Adena and I currently live in Florida. Don’t hate, I know we had a very mild winter compared to almost everyone else. I did grow up in NC and lived in MI too, so I have had my share of snow. Can you believe there are people that I know personally that have never seen snow??!!! Anywho…. 

My husband I will have been married 26 years next month. We have five wonderful kiddos- ages 24, 21, 17, 14, and 7. And I homeschool. Yup, all of them. Well, now just the boys, which are the youngest three. My girls have already graduated. My oldest works in the culinary field and my youngest daughter just got married 2 weeks ago. She now lives 200 miles from me. These are just snapshots taken; I don’t have the professional pics back yet.

I have a wide variety of interests but they will come in waves. And I tend to blog about whatever my current passion is. I love to travel, thrift shop, sew (newbie), do various crafts, read, cook, DIY projects, save money….about anything. During the school year, most of my posts will be about parenting/life, homeschooling, recipes and I also do product reviews that are family friendly. In my “spare time”, I also go to college part-time and do some cake decorating. I’m addicted to Pinterest.  

If you really want to know more about me, complete randomness, check out my More About Me page (as if you really want to read 100 things about me :). I also have a Bucket List…you know, just in case you want to see what I’ve accomplished..or want to at least.  Leave a comment so I know you visited and I’ll come visit you. I have a drawing for 2 coupons so you can try Purex Crystals Limited Edition Fabulously Fresh going on, it ends this weekend and there’s still low entries. The stuff smells amazing!! Posts coming up include a review for Victus Study Skills (whose kid doesn’t need that extra edge in school?), Supercharged Science (amazing online science course taught by a real rocket scientist), and a copycat recipe for Creamy Jalapeno Dip that’s just amazing. I also have a 5 day series starting next week on Mnemonics (helps you memorize stuff- series starts Monday).
