2011 Ultimate Blog Party

Happy Monday Everyone!

I decided to link up to 5 Minutes for Mom and their Ultimate Blog Party! It's never my intention to reach 10,000 followers or anything of that nature, but I do like to get my blog out there in hopes of being an encouragement to others, through my blogging! :) Visit the Ultimate Blog Party. You won't be disappointed, and I'm sure you'll find tons of blogs that you might not have otherwise found! :)

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Let's see...

If this is your first time here, my name is Christina

I live in Maryland. I have two amazing (ornery! ;) children, and a wonderful, awesome husband. I work full time (outside of the home). I teach Sunday school to two and three year olds. I could really work on being more patient (ironic since I'm a mother and Sunday school teacher, no? ;) My dream job is to be a social worker/child advocate/something that can help the world be a better place, but right now, I'm a Pricing Analyst at a mortgage company and SO thankful for my job. We are Baptist and attend church regularly. I'm not "in your face" about religion, but I do share my take on topics here and I will be the first to say, that without finding God, I would not be here today!

I blog about my children, my life, and randomly do a giveaway. I'd do more giveaways if given the opportunity. My blog posts tend to be pretty "light", BUT I do post about serious topics as my heart leads me. My father was an addict, my husband was an addict so you'll sometimes come across posts about that. I lost my triplet nephews in May 2008 due to them being born at 23 1/2 weeks so you will also see postings about them. I think about them EVERYDAY! I tend to find myself following a lot of infant loss blogs as well because my heart aches for those mommies :(

I'm a huge believer in the power of prayer and pray often! If we are online friends you can basically count on the fact that I pray for you! :) I'm super sensitive and cry every week over watching Coming Home, One Born Every Minute and Secret Millionaire (yes, I LOVE reality TV! :)

Okay, enough about me...

Here's my hubby, Manny...

And my children, Manuel (5) and Mia (1)...

Thanks for stopping by!

Just wanted to say that I love following your blog, Christina! You are such a sweet and positive person, and that is definitely an encouragement to me. Plus, I could look at pictures of Mia and Manuel all day! ;)

Happy Monday!
