Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

I came across The Ultimate Blog Party through a blog where I am a regular reader. Being an introvert, parties to me are the equivalent of dental work without Novocaine and I try to avoid both when humanly possible. So this kind of party is more my cup of tea (which I prefer to coffee).

I'm Sara age 31 SAHHM (stay at home homeschooling mom) to my daughter 6 with an infant daughter tag along who was born December 2010. My blog mostly consists of our homeschooling adventure and if I feel motivated I may write something somewhat heartfelt or at least about something non related to homeschooling (like this post).

 I have been married for almost 7 years to my husband who is goldsmith by day and rock star by night.......hopefully rock star by day soon as well;)  A little bit about myself, yuck, I hate doing this. Thank goodness there will never be a need for me to write my autobiography because I would be terrible at it.


  • I am addicted to books. I read.all.the.time, anything and everything during every spare moment I have (my next few points are all related to reading). 
  • I admit it, I usually read the last page of a book before reading. I hate surprises and avoid if possible. I also have been known to google movies to find out what happens before watching them as well. It saves me anxiety while watching;)
  • One of my top ten dreams is to have a library in my home. Not just any library, but one with huge wooden shelves with a rolling ladder and leather furniture. Think these for inspiration.
  • I want to live in Europe. I will live in Europe. To live in a city that has so much history it literally oozes out of the cracks in the sidewalk makes my heart flutter. 
  • People usually don't like me when they first meet me. I come across as cold and b****y, I know this and it doesn't bother me (I may actually kind of like it). I need to spend quite a bit of time with someone before they "get" me. But once we are friends, we are friends for life........unless you betray me. 
  • I have been known to eat something that has passed well beyond the 5 second rule and I'm not ashamed of it.  
  • I think I am physically incapable of Twittering. I over think things and would spend too much time editing what I wanted to say that I would completely ruin the spontaneity of it. 
  • I also text message using complete sentences and proper grammar. I can't bring myself to use slang or shorten words.

That's all I have at the moment because I am supposed to be doing my weekly homeschool wrap up right now. I may come back and add more later. Happy Ultimate Blog Party!

Hi! I am stopping by from UBP! I am a librarian--I LOVE books & reading too (but I always kick myself if I read the last page first!) This is our first year homeschooling, my girls are 11 & 9. I love the Well-Trained Mind.

Hi I'm stopping by from the UBP. I want to live in Europe also--or perhaps Asia! Either or would be good. Nice to meet you.

Stopping by from UBP!! Read the last page!!!! I could never do that. :) It's nice to find more homeschooling blogs.

You and I have a couple of things in common...

I know! A party that does not require showering or other humans - excellent!

I did not know your hubby was a goldsmith. That sounds very interesting, what does that mean? Does he make jewelry?

I can't do text abbreviations either. They are stupid. On the other hand, I sometimes get annoyed with myself for needing to type out all the words.

Hi Ladies! Thanks for stopping by! It's nice to know that you aren't alone in the blogging world. This is my kind of party. I can come and go as I please and I can think things through before I respond so you don't have to be subjected to my attempts at awkward conversation.

@Deb - My husband does make jewellery, he also does jewellery repairs and is a diamond/stone setter. It's an old trade passed on by his father. And yes, I too get annoyed at myself for typing out everything. I am sure the people that receive my 3 part texts get annoyed with me too. It's kind of like an OCD.

Hi! I don't think you look b**chy one bit! I wish I loved to read like you - I do love to read blogs though, but I'm sure don't think that's quite the same :P My oldest is just about 4 and we'll be homeschooling soon as well. I'm excited to look in to your list of curriculum! Have a great party!

Come by for a visit sometime!

I'm a new follower from UBP11; I came here because I love the name of your site. I also homeschool and our family is really into rock music as well (our 5yo has seen his favorite band Cage The Elephant twice).

I co-host a music meme every Monday - just post a video and sign the linky. Every other week is themed, but this Monday will be a freebie. Post your husband's music for a bit of exposure. A button link is on my site.
