New to the blogger world

Hey everyone! I've wanted to start a blog forever and I am finally here. Please have patience with me as I learn the ropes of blogland!
My name is Rachel Knoblich and I am a mom of 4 boys...soon to be 5. Our 5th son is due May 12th of this year. My sons are Ashton (13), Cole (11), Hayden (6 1/2) and Westin (5). Our newest son will be named McKale. I've been married 13 years to my husband Bryan. He is a busy man working as an Assistant Scout Executive for the Boy Scouts of America. (I know you're snickering...how fitting...5 boys...works for the Boy Scouts. I never had a chance for a girl! LOL)
I stay at home with these crazy kids and sell part time at a booth I rent. I am a lover of shabby chic and cottage style decor. I love being on the hunt and finding things for my home and for others. I love to remake things...painting...adding different fabric...sometimes sewing. I have been selling for almost a year at the shop I am in. It has been up and down, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. I'm doing what I love and best of all working for me. (Not to mention getting paid to shop...come on now!) Along the way I have met so many wonderful friends who love all the same things that I do. It's a fun job/hobby/lifestyle and I love to recruit others to join the fun.
I also am a Christian who follows Jesus. It's important to share my faith and love others as Jesus would. I love all kinds of people (for I am a peculiar one myself)...I have 7 tattoos (some Christian)...and I just except people as they are. God has done so much in my life that I want to share that with others.
Since this is my first post I'll keep it short. Thanks for all who have encouraged me to start a blog....YOU ASKED FOR IT....HERE I AM!
