Party? Where’s the party? It’s right here…
If this is your first visit to my little space on the internet, WELCOME!! Let me tell you a little about myself…
(Me…with straight-ish hair. This very rarely ever happens!)
I was born and raised in Arkansas, Razorback Red runs through my veins (Go HOGS! WPS!). I now live just outside Oklahoma City. For more on this transition, click HERE.
I’ve been married to a wonderful Christian man for just over 5 years and have an amazing son who will be 14 in a couple months and starts high school (WHAT?!? How did THAT happen??) in the fall.
I currently work full-time in the oil and gas industry and do proofreading/copy editing on the side. This blog is a fun hobby that I would love to turn into something more.
I started my blog in December of 2006, but didn’t really commit to it until a couple years ago. I have always loved to write…I worked in media (TV/radio) for 10 years and when I left the industry, I felt my life was void of something. Turns out, I was right… I needed to write. Therefore, when I resigned from my last media position with a radio/television station in Arkansas, I really started to focus on this spot on the web. Back then it was just a tiny blog on Blogspot…I’ve recently moved up to the big time with my own domain.
“All because two people Fell in love…” is a blog about my life…about family, cooking, traveling, soccer, half marathons, DIY, photography, bull terriers, adventure and the occasional product review. You never know what you’re going to get when you log onto my blog!
In my “Road Tripping…” series… I write about our trips exploring God’s creation. As a family of 5 (3 humans and two canines), we love to travel the great outdoors. We’ve hiked a majority of the state parks in Arkansas and are well on our way to seeing all Oklahoma has to offer. I’m a big fan of quirky, so it’s a been a great thing to live so close to Route 66/The Mother Road and all of it’s fun attractions.
In “On Tonight’s Plate…” I show you some of our favorite (teenager-approved) family recipes, as well as my attempt at new ones I find on Pinterest. I’ve never liked to cook and didn’t even do it that much before Pinterest came along. That site is GENIOUS!
In “Getting Crafty…” I write about the many DIY projects we do around our house. Actually, let me clarify, Rob makes the pieces, I just find the ideas (usually on Pinterest) and supervise. Hee Hee!
Sometimes I talk my husband into writing something for me to post here. I call it “Rob’s Rhetoric…”. He writes about faith and prayer and other religious topics. That man is gifted, I tell you!
I try to post at least 5 days a week, but being a soccer mom with a full-time job (in addition to this blog) and church commitments, I don’t always succeed at that. At the very least, I post a “PsOTD…” which are “Pictures Of The Day…”. I love to take pictures and do it pretty much 24/7, so you can expect at least that on any given day.
Well, that’s it! I hope you have fun during this week of The Ultimate Blog Party 2014… Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!
I’m on all the usual social media outlets…
Twitter: HERE (I’m not on here very often… Twitter still confuses me)
Instagram: HERE (I’m slightly obsessed and possibly annoying with this one!)
Come find me and say hello!
Until next time…
Nice to meet you! I love visiting parks and cool things! I hate to cook too, but even pinterest isn’t much help in my house with our GF diet. 😛
I like twitter since I don’t have a smartphone, but I’m sure I would be all up in instagram’s face then since I’m a photo junky! 🙂
Here’s my party post: http://www.welcometomarriedlife.com/2014/04/blog-party-2014-welcome-to-circus.html

What a fun blog! I grew up part of my childhood in Oklahoma. My folks were missionaries so I have been to almost every church in every little town in Oklahoma!
Thanks for dropping in! What is your favorite area in Oklahoma? We’re always looking for new “little” towns to visit 🙂
Dropping in from UBP14. Your site looks so interesting – I will definitely be back to do some reading! I’m a brand new blogger with two teenage sons – I know exactly what you mean about “how did that happen”? We also love to travel and hike. Can’t wait to read more.http://twoteensandtheirmama.blogspot.com/
Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Blogging!
Loved the post! Thanks for visiting yesterday!!

Love how yummy that recipe looks!
You mean teens are as picky as preschoolers when it comes to food???
Hope you enjoy the party!
Welcome! Thank you, it was so delicious and my teenager actually liked it… Win, win! He’s typically very picky!

Your dogs are adorable! Following you on Instagram now 🙂 Happy UBP14!!
Thanks! I’m slightly obsessed with them 🙂
Happy UBP14 to you, too!
My grandma grew up in Arkansas and I’ve been there a few times…it’s a gorgeous state!
As for twitter….use it more! Practice will help it make more sense:) I say this because it’s my favorite of all social media platforms!
Stopping by UBP14:) Hope you have a great weekend!
Arkansas is a beautiful state. We’ve been in Oklahoma for nearly 3 years and I’m still not used to the flatness or the wind! I don’t think I’ll ever get used to it, either!
I do need to practice more on Twitter…I guess I’m so used to Facebook and you know what they say about “old dogs” and “new tricks” 🙂 Not that I’m old or anything 🙂
Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting… have fun during the party!
