It's The 2010 Ultimate Blog Party!

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

It's time for the Ultimate Blog Party hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom!

Those of you that swing by here often know me well - since there aren't many secrets around this blog :). But if you're stopping by for the 1st time, let me tell you a little about myself....

I'm Kate. Wife to Eric for 7 years, and mama to 5 savvy little women, ages 5 & under. We were married in 2003, had Ella in 2004, Reese & Charlotte in 2006, and Kinley & Raya in 2008.

It was a busy 5 years.

I write here about our everyday life - our adventures, our madness, our passions, life with multiples, photography, organic food, yummy recipes, insane amounts of laundry, funny stuff that gets me through the day, and Target.

Yes, that's right, I love Target. I might as well throw on a red shirt and apply for a job.

I also love diet coke w/ crushed ice, hummus, loving on my amazing little ladies, writing, good pictures, dates with my husband, twitter, cookouts, and a laughing till I cry.

But most of all, I love the Lord. After all, He is the reason we have what we do, and He's the one that loves us most.

So come on, get over there! It's a great way to connect to other bloggers - you know you want to party! I look forward to getting to know many of you this week!

Dropped in for the blog party. Your girls are adorable! It's so foreign to me-I have ONE child, a teen, who is a boy.

I wouldn't know what to do with five girls, lol!

Have fun with the blog party-and I'd love to have you drop by Notes From the Cookie Jar! :)

Hi, I'm visiting from UBP. Nice to meet you! I blog as Money Savin' Momma on our freebie / deal / money saving website. We'd love it if you stop by our site too! What a blessing (and a challenge!) to have 5 kiddos under 5.

Best wishes to you and your blog in 2010!

bigguysmama said...

WOW! Trying to get over the shock of the 5 blessings you have! The Lord certainly knows what each of us can handle and you guys must be amazing to have 2 sets of multiples and an oldest sister to guide them along.

Blessings in your home!

Dayngr | Dayngrous Discourse said...

Kudos to you for having 5 - 5 and under.

Hi there. Greetings from Miami, FL. I'm stopping in this Monday to toss a little confetti, pull up a cozy virtual chair and party with you for a bit. Let's have some fun!

I've got my Ultimate Blog Party 2010 post up at Dayngrous Discourse along with some giveaways and one of those posts that give you a little taste of what's it like to have some Dayngr in your life. I hope you'll surf on over, say hello and follow along if the mood strikes you.

Oh, one last thing - If you're the tweetin' kind, I'm @Dayngr on twitter.

Jenn said...

Wow...5 girls under 5! I'm impressed, and humbled. What a joy! Thanks for being part of the party, I'm so glad I stopped by!

Lindsey said...

Love your blog. Thanks for stopping by mine. Just became a new follower. You have such a beautiful family, the Lord has truly blessed you.

Mrs4444 said...

visiting via UBP and WOW--Your blog is beautiful, and so is your family :)

It's always nice to meet a fellow Diet Coke addict...

Miranda @ Keeper of the Cheerios said...

Must be crazy with 2 sets of twins. :) My two kids keep me running all day long, I can't imagine what 5 of my children would be like. :p

I LOVE Target. I always tell my husband to just give me gift cards for Target when Christmas and my birthday roll around but he never listens. I've often said I should just work at Target too.. although I'm certain it would take the joy out of shopping there.

Karen said...

Stopping by from the UBP to say Hi. Wow, 5 kids under 5! I have 10 kids but they range in age from 23 down to 4. You have a beautiful family!

Blessings,
Karen

Karen said...

I'm visiting with the UBP and having a great time. 5 little girls! WOW! Your husband is greatly outnumbered. :) I honestly cannot imagine how you do it! The Lord must have really equipped you in the Mommy Dept. I hope you'll visit my online store: www.fashionsforyourlittleones.com sometime. I'm also giving a prize away during the UBP - #USC34. Enjoy the party!

Michelle said...

Wow 2 sets of twins. Now that's some work. We have 6 but no twins...I want some though! LOL.

Target rocks.

Over from UBP.

L Harris said...

Hey! I have 5 but not under 5. I am expecting again. there is some suspicion of twins, but I doubt it. lol. Looks like a f un blog! So glad I stopped by through the UBP!

A. Smith said...

I don't know how you even find time to blog but I'm glad you do. Hummus rules and so does the Lord. Glad to meet you, see you at the ubp party.

Susie B. Homemaker said...

Hi, stopping by with the UBP10! I have 3 under the age of 5... I can't imagine having 2 sets of twins!! Good job mama! :)

heather@it'stwinsanity said...

Ok, so this is not new news to me, but I giggled when I saw your girls' birth years. I had mine the same years too. So funny! If I knew you IRL we'd be hanging out at Target together every week. ;)

Kady L. said...

Hi there! I'm your newest follower from the UBP! 5 girls under 5?! I have 3 girls... my youngest just turned 2 two weeks ago and my twins will be 5 on Monday! I am forever hearing about my "poor" husband as I imagine you are too! And while I have 1 set of twins I can't imagine another! Would love if you'd stop by my blog - I only started last month, but I'm getting there! And as of today I have a few 'big' giveaways planned :)
