Stop Here for the Ultimate Blog Party ’12

Welcome to the PARTY!!

If you are like me, you may just be a bit overwhelmed by all that is happening in this Ultimate Blog Party. This is my second year participating, so I am almost a pro :). Once again this year, I am offering a prize – you can find me in $50-99 group. I am giving away a Scentsy warmer and 4 scent packs.

Here are a few fun facts about me…..which will hopefully encourage you to stop back and linger a while longer! But today I know you are just here for a few minutes. Feel free to click on a link or poke around my pinterest board. If you leave a comment with a link I will follow you back via your blog, Facebook, twitter, etc! After all, it’s a party!

  • I am single and work full-time for a youth ministry—and I love my job!
  • I have 3 great siblings, 2 nieces and 2 nephews that I adore. These fun people will be prominent in some of my posts. (Latest Family Post – A New Baby)
  • The most important relationship in my life is my relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • You can expect a few posts about my latest deal or new find. I love trying new products and occasionally host a giveaway on my site. (Current Giveaway –  2 Tervis Autism Tumblers)
  • I love coffee and most of the time I create a masterpiece with CoffeeMate! (A Post about my coffee bar)
  • During my spare time I read, cook, scrapbook and take photos. I am not really that great at any of those things, but I love having hobbies and really enjoy trying new things. (Favorite DIY post A personalized iPhone case)
  • And this year I became a Scentsy Independent Consultant and I have really enjoyed being a part of this company.

Now, for a fun party recipe–this is an adaption of my Easter Gluten Free Treat.

Gluten Free Chocolate Snack Mix
2 cups Rice Chex (gluten-free)
2 cups Corn Chex (gluten-free)
1 cup honey roasted peanuts
1 cup mini marshmallows
1 cup M&Ms any variety!

1 cup chocolate chips (or use white chips)
Mix the top ingredients. Melt the chocolate and slowly pour over the mix. Lay out on a cookie sheet til it’s cool.

Here’s a picture of my Easter mix. Imagine the possibilities for any season – especially now that they make sooo many varieties of M&Ms!

  4. Hi there,

    Nice to meet you. My first time to participate in UBP12, and I’m loving the opportunity to meet other Mommy Bloggers. Who knew we were such an articulate crowd? 😉

    Love your blog. If you have time, stop by caterpickles. A brief blurb so you’ll know what you’re getting into.

    Most of my blog focuses on the crazy questions my Five-Year-Old asks as she explores the world around her. When I’m not tracking down answers to her questions, I’m typing as fast as I can to document the funny stuff The Five-Year-Old says and the moments in which my parenting style totally breaks down. Lots of books get read and talked about too. Mostly on Thursdays.

    Hope to see you there sometime!

    My UBP12 post is here:
