Welcome ~ Ultimate Blog Party 2013

Ultimate Blog Party 2013

Welcome and thanks for stopping by!  The 2013 Ultimate Blog Party is about to begin!  This is my third year participating and I'm so excited!!

The Ultimate Blog Party is hosted by 5 Minutes For Mom.  Thousands of blogs will be linking up and there will be tons of great prizes given away!  So click the link and join the fun!

But before you go, let me tell you a little about myself, my family, my blog, and my giveaways!

My name is Christine, owner of Our Homeschool Reviews.  I'm a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to one wonderful, nature loving, animal caretaking, story writing, book reading daughter.  She goes by Funny Bunny is 9 1/2 and finishing up 4th grade.

I've been married to my husband for almost 13 years.  He's supportive of our homeschooling and we are very thankful for that!!

We have one dog, Maisy, a 8-year old Miniature Schnauzer.  She and our daughter are best buddies and she is most definitely part of the family!!

I started this blog back in May of 2010 as a way to post curriculum reviews for the TOS Homeschool Crew.  Now, almost 3 years later, I still love to review homeschool curriculum, but also enjoy reviewing anything family-friendly, hosting giveaways, or just talking about things homeschool related and our daily lives

If you are looking for some GIVEAWAYS, I am running the following:

Janet's Planet Science DVD Giveaway - ends 4/9
Check back for at least THREE more to come!!!

Oh, and I'm also a Thirty-One Consultant!  So if you are interested in ordering or want to hear more about the new consultant incentive, please contact me.

If you like what you see, please leave a comment and follow via GFC if you would like.  I also have a Facebook page, Twitter Page, and am on Pinterest.  If you have a blog or Facebook page, let me know and I'll stop by as well. 

Thanks again for visiting and enjoy the blog party!!

I hope you're having a terrific time at the UBP13.
You have a wonderful blog. I especially enjoyed your blogging story. It always interesting reading the reason(s) one decides to start a blog.
Our son was home schooled from 7th grade to high school graduation in 2010. It's great to see so many people doing it.

Stopping by from UBP. I'm now a GFC follower. You have a lovely family. I'm a fan of Thirty-One products. In fact, I'm hosting a party in April because I'm sooo wanting one of the new duffel bags.


It's nice to meet you Christine! Love the picture of your dog! We have a couple family members that are dogs as well ;-)
