Ultimate Blog Party 2011

It is that time of year! Time for the Ultimate Blog Party by 5 Minute Moms! This is the first year I have done this so I am super excited! Stop by their site to find out all the details and come on in and join the party!

Hi! I am Jen. I have one son who is the love of my life and our world.

The Ryans Nov 2010 017  

We have been married for going on 8 years and feels like we have been best friends for ever. He is a hard working man and I am so very proud of him.


I am a WAHM that is a writer. I have recently discovered I love writing and have finally found out what I want to be when I grow up. LOL Our two other children are Oscar and Zeus.


I am an animal lover, reader of all types of books, mom, wife, daughter and child of God. I love to write about all different things and sometimes share recipes, reviews and lots of stories about our life. So stop by as often as you like and comment on what you see. I love meeting other mommies and visitors.


  1. Thanks for stoping by Jen! So glad to "meet" you! I have subscribed to follow your blog since we both have a lot in common. Looking forward to reading your posts.

    Oh--and the song you have playing here is my FAVE! I sing it at church all the time :)


    For Such a Time as This!

  2. Thanks for stoping by my blog! I hope I can be an encouragement to you as you will be to me!
