Ultimate Blog Party 2013!

I am a follower of multiple mom blogs, and dad blogs, and cooking blogs of course. When Bubba was little and we didn't get out that much it was great to see that other moms had similar things going on. It was nice to be able to laugh about the sleepless nights and loads of dirty diapers. When I started this blog it made me feel like a was able to chat with someone, during the times I couldn't get out of the house. One of my favorite blogs is Parenting Illustrated with Crappy Pictures. It was one of the first blogs I discovered and is absolutely hysterical. Today I noticed a post that there was going to be an Ultimate Blog Party, a way to find more blogs to read, and get my blog read so I decided to join in. Stop over and check it out, and if you write a blog as well, join in.

Ultimate Blog Party 2013

I figure I should introduce myself for the new visitors to my blog. I am Kristin and this is Bubba. (No that is not his real name, just a nickname that stuck.)

I started this blog almost a year and a half ago now. At first I started it for myself, to feel more connected to the outside world while safe at home with a newborn. Now the blog has become more of a digital scrap book with documenting events in our lives. Lately I have been doing a lot more recipes since cooking is one of my favorite hobbies, and Bubba is able to play by himself a little bit more. Sometimes I narrate a recipe post out loud for Bubba at snack time, like my own cooking show, explaining how and why and am preparing something a certain way. It seems to entertain him and I think the love of cooking may be rubbing off on him because every now and then he will grab and imaginary pinch of something add it to a toy cup, test taste it, proclaiming "Yum!" and handing it to me for a taste. Who knows maybe in the coming years I will have cooking posts where Bubba is my sous chef, or I am his!

An update:
I had so much fun checking out the other blogs out there, a couple more to add to my rss feed.
And I won a prize for participating!


  1. Kristin,


    Visiting you from #UBP13! I’ve enjoyed looking around your site and am excited to read future posts. I love to cook and have a tendency to narrate my steps out loud too. Looks like you might have a chef in training.

    Please stop by anytime for a cup of tea, coffee or another beverage and let’s get to know each other a bit better.


  2. With YouTube, you totally should do a cooking show with him! Surfing in from the UBP party, better late than never!

    1. Good idea Trish! At this point he isn't even two yet so I was planning to wait a little while but I was planning to try home made play dough soon, maybe that will be his debut recipe :)

  3. I’m late! I’m late! I’m stopping by from the UBP13. I hope you stop by our party for a slice of warm banana bread and cold milk.
