The Party Has Started!!!

Welcome Friends!!! Pull up a chair, a glass of sweet tea and let the chatting begin...

My name is Barb; I am a homeschooling mother of two, military wife, and a daughter of Christ.  My family and I just recently relocated from Maryland to Fairbanks, Alaska.  We have been here for six months and love it so far. 

***This is me =) ***

***My family...it was a tad bit chilly out that day***

I just started this blog back in late December 2009, on a late night insomina moment.  I had never really had intentions on starting a blog but I loved reading other blogs, and I guess I thought I should create my own.  I tend to write about different things anywhere from money saving tips, homemaking tips, military, homeschooling, and any other randomness I have on my mind. 

I love blogging!  When I am not blogging you can find me teaching my children, reading a book, trying to bake new recipes, figuring out ways to save money, or ways to stop spending money ;), and just spending time with my three blessings that God has truly blessed me with. 

I need to refill my glass of sweet tea, and when I return I would love to hear about you......


  1. Hi Barb, My name is Rhonda. We have so much in common. I too am a military wife, a homeschooling mom and a Christian. I also just started blogging recently. I will subscribe to your blog to read about your new adventures in Alaska.
