Ultimate Blog Party Post!







So leave it to me to join something last minute and not understand the directions fully! I went BACK to the site and now know I need an OFFICIAL blog party post! hehe so here it is! For everyone new to my blog disregard the first two sentences!


SO HI!! Welcome to "A Walk in My Shoes..." I am a wife of 5 years to a wonderful man of God (see the picture of him kissing me? hehe, isn't he cute?!), and mother to 2 toddlers: a boy, 4 yrs old (almost 5) and a girl, 3 yrs. old. My husband and I are youth pastors at a fairly large Cowboy Church in Montgomery, TX and if you are stopping to ask what the heck is a cowboy church just click here and find out! Besides that FULL time job I am an avid scrapbooker and photographer! I am very outgoing and love going new places, meeting new people and just exploring period. I blog about things that intrigue me - books I've read, what my four year old asked his daddy last night, the BEST toilet cleaner in the world! (yes that post DOES exist). I also typically post yummy recipes, complete with photos, at LEAST once a month but can be four a week! You just never know. And thus my life - you just never know! Want to see some pictures of recipes I've posted??? Okay you twisted my arm:










I said I'd never live in Texas but after being here 5 years am finally thinking it WOULD be cute to take pictures of my kids in the Bluebonnets and I DO enjoy Moolenium Crunch Blue Bell Ice Cream...so I will survive here.

This is my first year at The Ultimate Blog Party hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom and if you've never heard of it or are not in on the action you MUST go check it out! Just click on the button above.

My hubby was a youth pastor for 2 1/2 years when we were first married. I want those cinnamon rolls!

Barbie said...

Ha ha, the instructions were quite extensive, weren't they? See you around the party!

Popped in from the blog party. Good to meet you . Nice to see you're part of a cowboy church. My husband and I were married by a cowboy preacher 5 years ago so I know what you mean. ;)

Brittany Ciara said...

Those pictures looked yummy! :) It's okay, we all don't follow the rules once in a while. :P Have fun partying! :)

Mirinda said...

Hi Ivy, thanks for stopping by my blog! And yummy, cinnamon rolls are a weakness of mine LOL

Marsha said...

Hi, Ivy. It's so nice to meet you. I'm looking forward to checking out your yummy recipes! Hope you have a great party week!

Okay, how cute is your blog?!? Love it & now following. I also love to cook & post recipes 1-2 times a month! That is so awesome your hubby is a youth pastor. My first job out of college was the junior high youth director at our church (i did that for 2.5 years) and now I teach middle school math part time & raise my 2 little girls :)

Hi, it's nice to meet you, I'm popping over from the blog party. A cowboy church, my oldest dd would so love that! She is horse-crazy, and unfortunately we live in a big city where riding opportunities are expensive. She gets on a horse 1 to 2 times a month.

your recipe photos look mouth-watering.

Christine said...

Coming by for the party! I follow you on here now and on blogfrog. :)

That food looks delish! Now I'm hungry!

Here's my blog if you'd like to check it out and perhaps follow too! It's really new, just be warned.

It's so lucky for me to find your blog! So shocking and great! Just one suggestion: It will be better and easier to follow if your blog can offer rrs subscription service.
