Ultimate Blog Party {2012}

Ultimate Blog Party 2012


Hey y’all!  I have always wanted to take part in one of these blog parties so I thought that I’d do a “little bit about me” post today to introduce myself!

January 12, 2012 053 My name is Adriane.  I am married to David and am mom to five children.  We live in Louisiana and we love the deep south that we call home. 

To start off this post, I thought I’d tell you a few interesting facts about me.

  • I love to sing and have been singing in front of crowds since I was five-years-old.
  • I play the piano too but quit many years ago due to stage fright when performing on the piano in front of crowds!
  • I am a certified elementary/special education teacher and taught in public schools for 8 years.
  • I once said that I’d never homeschool.
  • We’ve been a homeschooling family for 7 years.  {smile}
  • I love Tex-Mex food.  I’d have it everyday if I could.
  • I do not like Dr. Pepper {but Coca-Cola is a different story!}
  • I love Sonic’s Cherry Dr. Pepper. 
  • One of my favorite places in the whole world is my backyard garden.  It is truly a place of peace, wonder, and beauty!

If you’re new to my blog, I’d like to welcome you and tell you a few of the things you’ll find on my blog.


We are a homeschooling family so it tends to pop up now and again on the blog.  Some of the most-read posts about homeschooling here are:

  1. Still following along.

    You know your blog was the first blog I ever read.

    And still one of my favorite places to stop and visit. Girls from the South are cool like that you know;)

    Love your new header. and I'm swooned away by your backyard garden!

    Good to say hello to you friend. Have a wonderful weekend!!!

  2. Hi Adriane.

    Your place looks so stunningly peaceful and just beautiful. Mom and kids are all beautiful and handsome. Your garden just lovely. I can't wait to get back reading your blogs. Dropping by from UBP.

    I could always tell by your posts that you're from Louisiana. I am from Louisiana, but not we live right over the state line in Mississippi!

  4. Thank you, Amanda! You are my first ever blog friend! I so love visiting your place on the web. One day, I'm going to make up your way and meet you for real! :)

  5. Thank you for dropping by! It's nice to meet you. I look forward to getting to visiting with you. :)

  6. Thank you, Sally. It was fun to write. Wish I had more time to pull out some old post from long ago but that will have to wait until another day. Hope you're having a great weekend! Can't wait to meet your newest little one. :)

  7. Yay! Another Louisiana Girl! I'm actually from Texas but have lived in Louisiana since I was 8 so I now claim to be a Louisiana Girl. :) I have a lot of great friends from Mississippi. Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Hi! I'm stopping by from the UBP - belatedly because my week was just insane so I had no time before now to visit anyone - and am so glad to "meet" you. I, too, am a homeschooler who writes about our home learning journey as well as other things. Hope you'll stop by:


I love comments! Thanks for taking time to leave me a message. I'll be sure to get back in touch with you!
