Ultimate Blog Party 2011!

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

I'm joining in on the Ultimate Blog Party over at 5 Minutes For Mom! There is a LOT of partying going on over there for sure! :) If you want to enter to win some cool prizes or get to know some other bloggers, you should definitely check it out!

If this is your first visit here, thanks for stopping by! I'm glad you did. :) I'm Shay and I blog here about my wonderfully chaotic life. I'm twenty-something and happily married to my husband, affectionately referred to as Big Daddy. We live on Addison Ranch in the middle of a cornfield in Indiana. We're the proud parents of two great kids - Ezekiel and Elisha who I stay at home with. I'm an aspiring writer and a Christian and I use this blog to write candidly about our life, struggles and accomplishments. I hope that by telling some of our stories and by sharing some of the things that challenge us I can help others going through similar situations. We are currently homeschooling (and lovin' it!) so I write about that a lot too. You can check out the navigation bar up top to see what else I write about.
