The Ultimate Blog Party 2011 Is Here!

Ultimate Blog Party 2011


It's here and this is no April Fools joke! The Ultimate Blog Party hosted by 5 Minutes For Mom starts today!

 Welcome everyone! My name is Stephanie and I am thrilled that you stopped by. I think I am supposed to do an "about me" post but frankly I never know what to say. I am a Marine Corps wife (Oorah) and mommy to two awesome little girls. I own a small business called Sew Fierce and have become very avid (sometimes obsessive) about my photography the past several months. We currently live in beautiful San Diego, CA but in just a few short weeks will be moving to Northern PA. This will be the third time in 6 years we have moved from one coast to the other. Lucky for me we love a new adventure!

So instead of going on about me let me tell you how you can join this awesome party! Head over to the amazing Prize Page and see all the awesome prizes up for grabs over the next 8 days. Then make sure to post a comment on the official party page so you can get your name in the hat to win one of these amazing prizes. Third,  add your blog, twitter, facebook and or website page to the appropriate linky and visit, visit, visit! This is a wonderful opportunity to meet new blogging friends and find sites you might normally never know about. And of course do not forget to follow #UBP2011 on Twitter for all the up to date happenings and to see when winners are announced.

How do I like to party?

Make sure to join the party and have fun! Also if I am lucky enough to have you as a new follower please leave a comment letting me know so I can follow you back!

Hello fellow Devil Dog! Boppin' over from UBP11! I miss the San Diego area, we were stationed at Camp Pendleton but now we're Reservists in Seattle.

Your pictures are great!
I can't imagine moving from one coast to the other, I've only ever lived on the west coast. You're very brave, and yes.. you must be adventurous!

Maria and Michelle said...

Oooh! I love bentos!!! I can't wait to look through them all and see what you've come up with. I only do muffin tin meals on occasion, but would love to get more creative in this for my girls. Love your blog and I look forward to reading more :)

We have moved all over the place, too, though we aren't military- we do live near a huge base, though, so most people assume we are. LOL

We would get along great at breakfast - I would join you with my nonfat, no-water chai and could of course FORCE myself to grab a vanilla cupcake. Couldn't let you go solo on that. Looking forward to reading about the adventures with your upcoming move.

Swinging in to say hello from the UBP. It's been a whirlwind, it's amazing to see how many blogs there are out there and how many people you have something in common with :) Feel free to swing by my UBP for an Amazon giveaway (worldwide) or if dresses are your thing, the Shabby Apple Giveaway (RV $92) (US only) is pretty awesome!
