Blog hoppin'

Wow, what a fun idea to do bloghops instead of going to BlogHer. I am not even jealous of those at BlogHer because . . . ummm . . . ummm . . . Oh nevermind.

I am Christi, mom of Daisy and Junior and we live out in the sticks of East Texas. We homeschool which can be quite an adventure.

I am also a nerd. Or maybe I mean geek. Or possibly some combination of the two.

I read obsessively, I enjoy researching things, and I will learn how to do something for fun.

I make my own vinegar, want to learn to make wine and taught myself knitting, crocheting and tatting - don't worry, no one else knows what tatting is either.

I make homemade chicken and dumplings and then will re-fry a donut.

I used to have a nearly photographic memory. And then I had kids.

If you are wanting to read some of my favorite posts of mine over on the right is a list of my favorites. I have 2 other blogs that are listed up above this post.

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to meeting you. And I get to do that in my PJs. Hah! Take that people who went to BlogHer - your shoes probably are killing you.

I would love it if you subscribe to my blog.
Follow me on twitter. I am christi_s1996


  1. I know what tatting is....but then again, I am one of those weird homeschoolers....haha....listen, I was gonna tell you that there is a great unit study for Treasure Island for free....downloadable at I was looking and found it on a blog. If I remember correctly she had it on her sidebar to the right!! Have fun!

  2. Hello from the Hop! Chicken and dumplings sure sound good. I have a family recipe for that. Yum!


  3. Oh, I do know what tatting is! I'd love to learn, but having a toddler in the house and severely curtailed my ability to have my own hobbies! I'm sure you can relate!

    Nice to meet you! Enjoy blog hopping in your pj's!

  4. I know what tatting is too, but would never do it myself! Actually wish I had the patience for crafting, but that's not the way God created me.

    I'm glad I hopped over to meet you.

    Be blessed and be a blessing,

  5. It's just great to meet you. I am also a geek, but I must confess that I don't learn things for fun. I used to, though, before kids...

  6. I'm happily blog hopping in my pjs too. (I probably shouldn't mention that I've been in them ALL day, huh?) I'm a nerd too though-love to read and research.
