Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Welcome to my little Blog Party as part of the Ultimate Blog Party hosted at 5 Minutes for Mom. Head over to the official Party post to find out how you can host your own party, sign up for drawings, meet new people and introduce your site to new viewers.

Thanks for visiting my blog. My name is Christy. I am a woman of faith, the wife of a full-time graduate student, and the mother of two young children, living as an expat in Aberdeen, Scotland.

I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, about an hour south of Seattle, Washington. I attended college at Seattle Pacific University, where I met my husband. We have been married over 10 years now. We have two wonderful children -- our son is four and our daughter in two. They are growing so quickly.

In our married life, we have lived in a variety of places - Chicago, Illinois; Nashville, Tennessee; Princeton, New Jersey; and presently, Aberdeen, Scotland. We are here at the University of Aberdeen for about three years while my husband works on a Ph.D. in Theology.

I currently have the pleasure of staying home with my children. In the past I have worked in Electrical Engineering, Information Technology and Telecommunications, Production Management in 3-D animation, and Digital Asset Management for an animation studio.

Here on my blog, I like to write about all the random things that make up life as a mother, wife and homemaker ... like: menu plans and recipes, parenting, book reviews (especially kids books), our efforts to be more "green", crafts, faith, our family adventures, life in Scotland and more. Please browse through my little corner of the internet and let me know what you think.

Have fun at the party!

  8. Christy ~
    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! This Ultimate Blog Party has been so much fun. How absolutely wonderful that you are getting a chance to live in Scotland for three years. I will definitely be following your blog.

    Your children are just adorable!

  9. Christy,
    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and commenting on "Robbing My Brothers and Sisters." You made my day. I'm sure you know the feeling when you write something, and you wonder if it will ever touch someone and make an impression. It's always good to hear when someone is blessed by something I wrote. God is so good.

    The UBP has been a huge blessing. I just wish I had more time to blog hop! This is my first year participating. I'm encouraged by the number of Christian bloggers I have met.

    I look forward to reading more of your blog. I noticed you are reading Jesus Calling. I'm also reading that right now, and it has been wonderful. It's awesome how God sends the right words at just the right moment.

    Blessings to you!
