Blog Hop - 3 Things You Didn't Know About Me

Wow - it feels pretty neat to have my idea used on one of the first blog hops!

These will likely only be new to you if you're new to my blog, but here goes....

1) I went on a Teen Missions trip when I was 17, for 2 months. It was one of the hardest and best summers of my life!
2) I am very thankful that so far we've been an accident-and-sick-free family! None of us have allergies, none of us have ever broken a bone, I have been stung by a bee only once. In the past 8 years I have had to buy antibiotics for our 4 kids only 6 times in total! (1 for some kind of cold infection, 2 for thrush, 2 for one bad case of UTI, and only 1 for ear infection)
3) Nathan and I LOVE cruising. We've been to Mexico twice and we've been on two cruises - and though we thoroughly enjoyed all our trips, we prefer cruising hands down and can't wait to go again!!

This theme for the Blog Hop was your idea...great one!

Where did you go with Teen Missions? I was a missionary teacher with New Tribes Mission before I met and married my wonderful Aussie hubby two years ago. Today we plan online events. We are just getting started and invite you to stop by and visit sometime.

You are invited to my Stella & Dot Jewelry Party happening all week at Comfort Joy Designs! Hope to see you there!

I would love to go on a cruise! I haven't been able to convince my hubby yet....he's a little freaked out I think!

I would love to go on a cruise one day. Of course, I think the perfect one would be Disney since it would allow us to see the crew that we are so fond of.

Wow. You are so lucky to not have allergies in your family!

Just stopping by via the blog hop to say hello.

How very fortunate for your family! In the past month, we've dealt with pneumonia, severe ear infections, bronchitis, sinus infections, and pleurisy. And that's just me and my husband! Fortunately, our baby has been well!

Hopping over from the Blog Hop! I would love to go on a missions trip. Someday. Right now I am just trying to make an impact on my home mission field.

Brandi said...

I love to cruise too. I have been to Mexico once and I am so ready to go on another cruise.

We have yet to go on a cruise! I keep trying to win a cruise cause we can't afford it! Not giving up though!

Now cruising sounds like a blast - I have never done so but would LOVE it I am sure! Teen Mission at 17 - what a blessing - I am sure it was an eye opening experience you will never forget! Have a Happy Tuesday!

Fun idea for the Blog Hop topic!

My husband and I have talked about taking a cruise--we'd probably choose Alaska--but we haven't done it yet.

Nice to meet you! I'm visiting from this week's Blog Hop. Never been on a cruise, but I love road trips a lot! :) On August 1, I'll be hosting a new meme called Small World Saturday. I hope that you'll join the fun!

I am so jealous you were able to go on a mission trip. I can think of nothing more enjoyable than going on a trip with my husband. How fun!

Jenna said...

Just stopping by on the blog hop! You just made me want to go on a cruise to Mexico..and jealous because I'm on an antibiotic now for a summer cold :(

Mochamama said...

Hi! I'm at the Hop today and stopped by to get to know you better. I hope that you'll find the time to visit me, too!

My husband and I love to cruise too! We have taken three in our 18 year marriage so far. We would love to take our kids on one someday. We'll see. :) Happy Hopping!

Your title caught my eye when I was searching through blog hoppers today. You have a beautiful family. You truly are blessed as am I. God is good...all the time.

So nice to meet you Tammy on this blog hop. Wow; very cool that you are #10. It's funny because last week, I stayed up just so I could link at exactly the time the linky list opened up and I was still only in the 50's. LOL. So this time I didn't worry about it.

But I'm glad to visit you and learn a bit about you. Let me say that you are truly blessed with your family's good health. Don't take that for granted and thank God. I always enjoy making new blogging friends. One of my good friends is originally from Windsor and I have two friends that spend the summers doing mission work in Red Deer, Canada.

I'm enjoying the blog hop. :)
