Here for the Party


A big hello to all of you Ultimate Blog Party Peeps. :D I am Erica and I actually assist Susan and Janice over at 5 Minutes for Mom. :D


Here we are at Blogher '09 with the lovely Brooke White.


I am so glad that you are visiting. I have been so very busy working for the girls over the past couple of years, that I have sort of neglected my own little corner of the web. But, I did recently get a new site design and a new URL...and I truly do love it. Now if I could only find some time to get some more content on here...life would be grand.

I hope that you will visit again throughout the coming weeks and months. I promise I will do my best to keep things fresh and fun around here. You could even follow me on Twitter if you'd like. :D


When I am not busy working behind the scenes at 5 Minutes for Mom, I can be found playing Ring Around the Rosie, coloring and running all around the house with my three kiddos. Audrey is 6, Isaiah will be 4 in July and Christian just turned 2 a few weeks ago. You can see their lovely faces on my sidebar.

I also lead my daughter's Girl Scout troop, which has been tons of fun.

Oh I also have another site, 5076 Miles Apart, with my friend, Sara, where every day we share a snapshot of our lives, as we live 5,076 miles apart.

I love to sing, read Nicholas Sparks books, watch Chuck (did you see Monday's episode?!?!?! THE BEST EVER), quilt, do Beth Moore Bible studies, eat chocolate and drink sweet tea. In fact if you were over at my house right now, I would share some Dove chocolate peanut butter eggs and sweet tea with you. I would simply ask you to ignore the crayon all over my walls. My kids are artists who don't like to obey their momma. :D

I started a 100 Things About Me - UBP10 edition. Here is Part 1Part 2 and Part 3.

Okay so a good party needs music right? So here is one of my current favorite songs that gets me dancing. I love to blast it throughout the house and you should see my kiddos dance to it..it's the best.






Also, while I have you, I would like to take a moment to share with you a bit about the organization that I am the most passionate about, Invisible Children. Their goal is to bring home the thousands upon thousands of child soldiers in Northern Uganda and capture Joseph Kony, the leader of the LRA.

I saw the film, Invisible Children, back in 2006 and it changed my heart in so many ways. It is my goal to make it out to Northern Uganda some day to help the former child soldiers.

So, what about you? What are your interests? What are you passionate about? And where is your little corner on the web? I'd love to visit.


I hope you all have a blessed week. Thank you so much for stopping by. :D

HI Erica!
My first virtual meeting via #ubp10. Nice to meet you. It's refreshing to see you enjoying the little ones during these precious years--and the best thing (regardless what others say about tween years...and older)--with every passing day & year, my 3 girls and I (Baba included) have more and more fun! Being a mommy (and a mommy blogger) rocks! Since this is my 1st year, having read your post caused me to reflect...and I'll be amending my own party post!

Hi from the blog party! Beautiful design. I actually went to Northern Uganda in November, and visited the camps. The organization for which I work is trying to help families re-establish themselves. So sad, but they have incredible faith!

Coming over from the UBP. My little corner of the web is at
http://designtoshine.blogspot.com/
I get a rush from finding an item of junk in the thrift stores, yard sales, etc that I can use at home or make over into gifts. My children are my passion...but now at 18 and 23 they are leaving the nest. I'm finding my way in the world after being a single working mom for the last 16 years.

Parenting in blue jeans said...

I honestly just want to see who had spot number1...I guess you being their assistant makes sense. In my mind I was imagining some frantic woman posting as clost to 12:01 as she could. Loved the song! Nice to read/meet you.

Great party! :)

My passions have changed in the past year. These days it's about middle income homeless and hunger, and the high school homeless issue we have in Las Vegas.
I spend my time working at home full time, dealing with my severe chronic pain and loving the Heavenly Father.
Love your blog and really enjoyed my visit.

Modern Style Mama said...

I am so so glad i found you amongst all these blogs. I know you are ! and all but believe it or not Im just hopping around. I loved your post and your song. How funny - its one of those songs that cant help but get you in a better mood and moving around. My favorite author is Nicholas Sparks!! I truly hope you create a connection with you and stop by often. I am still new to the blogging world in my opinion and am amazing and the people you can meet I am now a subscriber by google and twitter. I cant find a place to follow :)

I look forward to stopping back again. My link here will take you to my blogger blog. I am actually joining the party with my kids blog. http://unforgettablechildhood.com

WOW, 163 comments. I was reading your 100 things about me post and I find it very interesting. I could never do what you did. That looks way to scary! I watch house, but that's all I have time to watch really. that's my suggestion

Quirky Momma said...

You seem so involved in everything I have no clue how you do it with three young kiddos! Looking forward to reading more about you! Discovered you through UBP (whoohoo!)

Amy's Blah, Blah, Blogging said...

Wow, you are one busy lady! I have no idea how you would have time to even post one picture a day on your other site. Or even take one picture a day, whew, how do you do it all?!?!

I have not seen that movie before, but I will have to look for it. I wonder if it's on hulu. Have to check it out. I am a former social worker so I am passionate about social justice, and even more so about Christ. But, I think they truly fit together.

Hope you have a great time at the party this week and meet lots of great bloggers and friends! Stop by and say hi when you get the chance.

allenma said...

I just love meeting other Christian Mommies! Your site is so sweet, and I enjoyed reading about you and your adorable children. I am most passionate about being a godly wife, mommy, and homemaker. I blog about the moments, because they are so fleeting. After all our lives are just a vapor. If you get some spare time stop by and visit me. I will be waiting with a cup of Starbucks!

Xmas Dolly said...

Well,Hi! Just thought I'd make a quick stop before I had off to dreamland. I'm very new at this blobparty stuff, but I'm likin' it tremendously, and meeting so many new people. Right now I'm pretty hepped up about blogging, and meeting new people, and also I'm pretty serous on learning all I can about clean water. I have a few posts about it due to finding my own water pretty nasty. Very nice to meet you & thanks for inviting me to your Par-tay! http://thenewxmasdolly.blogspot.com
