The Ultimate Blog Party 2014

Posted on April 3, 2014 in Blog Party

The Ultimate Blog Party at 5 Minutes for Mom has been around for 8 years now. I, however, have only partied with them 3 times (this being my 3rd time) yet for some reason I am only able to find that I wrote just 1 intro post…..HMMMM????


I have also won a prize each time, last year was this wonderful WordPress Transformation that I am still excited about!

And the time before that was a water proof writing pad and pencil that hangs in my shower….still to this day, preventing my ideas from going down the drain! Along with an over sized coffee mug that I still use and think about the #UBP everytime I enjoy a cup of coffee with it.

Just a heads up

I love to socialize during parties but am completely horrible about staying in touch. So if I meet you at the party and you don’t see me anymore in your part of the blogosphere after that, please know it is not because I don’t like you. I am the greatest friend you will never have and the worst friend you will always have. If that makes since to you then you and I are going to be the best of friends!!

A little about me

I am many characteristics in one beautiful package….a TRUE Sagittarius. I am surrounded by 4 handsomes and 1 dog in a little culdesac on the outskirts of town. I am living a life that I never dreamed of and am loving the life I have always prayed for. This address located in the premises of this blogosphere is where I hang my words and journal from my fabulous savings to my wealthy life as a FFW (FireFighter wife). I never imagined being a mother but still the Lord not only blessed me with 3 precious gifts, He blessed me with the ability to teach preschool and through that journey I have learned to become a better mother.

A Little about my blog

What you read are just a few of the topics you will find if you stick around here for a while. So pull up a chair if you can or come back when you can stay longer, either way I look forward to meeting you at the #UBP14

    I'm also horrible at staying in touch! I'm finding friends that made last year at the UBP that I haven't spoken too since then:( I really need to get better at it! Looking forward to connecting on Twitter!

    So nice to meet you! Hope you have a great time at the party! I've got to grab the preschooler out of the fridge now, and get the kindergartner out of my makeup cabinet....

    Hi Dana! Thanks for stopping by my blog. It's great to visit yours. A waterproof writing pad??? So, I'm not the only person who blogs in the shower??? :) I'm just starting out and already find it a challenge to "keep up" with everyone I meet. But, I'm happy to meet you and will connect with you on your social sites. Maybe we can visit some over the next year. :) Have a great evening, and enjoy the party!

    • ReplyDana

      I didn't realize your were a "newbie"? you seem like a pro! I am off and on and have been for over 6 yrs, needless to say if you keep up you will go far! so hang in there, see you soon ;-)

    Stopping by as part of UBP 2014. It is hard to stay in touch sometimes, but I do a better job when people are more tech-y. Hope you get to check our mom and son blog mindlikechild. and let us know what you think!

    Hi Dana! You so graciously stopped by my site during #UBP14, and I'm sorry it took me so long to return the favor. I decided to play "being sick" for the entire week - YUK! I agree, your blog redesign is gorgeous... love the crisp, clean look of your site! Nice to meet you. Hope you won a nice momento prize from this year's party! ;)
