Party Over Here!

Welcome!!  The Ultimate Blog Party 2010 is happening soon over at 5 Minutes For Mom and this is my first time participating.  It will run from Friday, April 9th – April 16th.  I’m excited!

So what is this Ultimate Blog Party?  It’s chance to make some new friends, maybe win a prize, and  hang out with some of the biggest mommy bloggers out there.  Don’t get startstruck, ok?

A little bit about my blog.  My name is Stacy and I’ve only been blogging for a little over a year.  Matter 0f fact, I didn’t even know what a blog was until the end of 2008.  What a whole new world has opened up when finding the blogworld.  I started out my blog just wanting to write about what was happening in my family.  It’s changing into a personal journal of challenges I’m trying.  I love a challenge!  I’ll hook up with other bloggers challenges ( and I’m working on one of my own…my Evernote Challenge.  One recent challenge that has meant a lot to me personally was completing the Read The Bible In 90 Days challenge.  It’s been a huge personal growth adventure for me.  The name of my is blog is Our Safe Haven…my plan is that these challenges will help me to be a better wife and mom and will help me to turn our home into a safe haven for my family to come home to.

I just recently moved to WordPress so my blog is kind of plain.  It’s taking me a while to figure out all the gadgets here.  Hopefully there’ll be some nice changes around here soon.

If you’d like to follow me on Twitter…I’ll follow you back!

There are some pretty nice looking prizes available at The Ultimate Blog Party.  What I’d really, really, really love to win first would be:

  1. Just stopping by and thought I would say hello! Good luck winning a prize!

  2. Stopping by to visit from the party! Hope you will visit me sometime soon!

  3. Hi thanks for the comment!!! I hope you win something!!

  4. I don’t think your blog is plain. It’s not about how much clutter is in your sidebars anyway; the only thing that matters is your posts. I love challenges too; I think I need to challenge myself to more of them (not this week, though; I’m booked solid commenting on blogs from the UBP!)

  5. Hello there! Just stopping by from the UBP! It’s nice to meet you. Hope you have a great weekend!

  6. I’m finding there is no greater challenge than switching a blog. I went from blogger to my own domain and I’m still trying to figure it all out. I think yours is great.

    I’m having a book giveaway at mine. Please visit my blog through my website, I’d love to see you there!


  7. Stopping from the party! Do you like the change to WordPress!

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I will certainly be back to read more of your posts. I’m finally getting the hang of figuring out how much to keep for my food storage. Problem is paying for it, lol. I’ve started writing dates I open something on things like shortening, etc. that I ‘ve over bought on before.

  9. Just stopping by from UBP to say hello! I hope you have a great weekend.

  10. Found you from the ultimate blog party. Your blog is super cute.

  15. Hi there! thanks for stopping by!!

  16. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I am finding that there are a lot of Stacys out there! I look forward to catching up on your blog when I have a few moments…do you like wordpress? I have often considered switching.

    • So far I do like wordpress better. But, now I keep hearing that if you ever have plans to monetize your blog you shouldn’t go with the free wordpress. So, there may be another change in the future. That’s ok tho. I’m learning as I go.

  17. Glad I found your blog! If you need any help with anything let me know. If I can’t help…I’ll try to find someone who can! It’s been awesome chatting with you on twitter and I can’t wait to get to know you better!

  18. It’s nice to meet you!!

    I’m planning to move to WordPress at some point this year too! 🙂

  32. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Happy UBP10!

  33. Hi there, thanks for stopping by. It’s nice to get to know you 🙂

  34. Thanks for stopping by Average Radical. I’m pretty stoked about reading the Bible in 90 days regardless of if I win the actual copy that’s set up to do that. I figure, if I do, bonus. If I don’t, the internet can probably help me figure out what pace to divvy it up in.

  35. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love the challenge btw. Have fun!

  36. Enjoy the party–it’s my first-time & it’s been a great experience so far. Thanks for linking up to my gift offer!

    Don’t you just love WP? Simplicity is great–and WP will just make your blogging experience that much more rewarding.

    Blog Party On!

    I’m following you @ponnsbara

  37. Hi from the UBP! Good for you on finishing the Bible in 90 days! I saw the challenge and many of my friends participated, but I wasn’t able to this time around. Hope to do it in the future. I’ve read the Bible in a year, but never in 90 days!

  38. It’s nice to meet another wordpress blogger. I enjoyed reading your recent posts. I’m pretty knew to all this, and a bit of a rarity I suppose as a “daddy blogger”. Thanks for dropping by my blog.

  39. Stopping by from #UBP10. I love your blog. Psalms and Proverbs are 2 of my fave chapters in the Bible. I hope you have a wonderful, winning week during #UBP10

  40. Just following from the UBP! Nice Blog 🙂

  41. Nice to meet you – isnt it fun checking out everyone from the UBP!
