Party!!! (Ultimate Blog Party 2010)

Ultimate Blog Party 2010
I'm new to this whole blogging thing(and a bit intimidated by it to be honest)...and this is my first Ultimate Blog Party.

A little about me...
I live in Alaska...never in a million years did I think that I would ever live here, let alone visit.
I have 3 beautiful kiddos!  See sidebar for their cute faces!  We're pretty sure that the princess will be home  with us next year as she starts Kindergarten and we venture into the world of homeschooling.
I've been married to my wonderful husband for 8 1/2 years(we met and married in 13 months)...but you won't see him much on the blog.
I am so thankful to be loved by Jesus Christ! (and to be able to love Him back)
I love all things related to babies, birth, health and wellness, traveling, reading, knitting...and more!

So if you have any questions about me look around, if you don't find what you're wanting to know just email!  And come join me at the Ultimate Blog Party 2010!!

It's on the link above and look at the directions...write up your own post and add the prizes you'd like to win!
If I were to win my top 3 picks are:
The grand prize-a laptop!!  (I'd LOVE one!) by
USC 60- Wallslicks Gift Certificate by Wall Slicks (these would be great for our rental!)
USC 17- Apple Gift Certificate by cmomgo(I love music and movies!)

If I didn't win those I'd also love 63, 104, 1, 100, 35, USC4, USC15, USC35, and any of the Target, Amazon, or Paypal gift cards.

Thanks for reading about me:) I can't wait to meet you all!


  1. Following from the UBP:-) Nice to meet you!

  2. Hello! I just thought I would stop by and say hello! It's funny to see a lot of the same fav links on your blog.

  3. Hi!! Great to meet you and I love your blog name- It is a beautiful life and your kids are darlin'!

  4. Dropping in from the UBP to say hi! :)

  5. Look at your beautiful family! Those kids are precious :D Do you want to know what's funny? My husband and I have been talking about living in Alaska for years now, we just never have made it happen. My understanding is once your there you love it! I look forward to reading more of your posts and getting to know you better. God bless!

  6. Wow - you're brave doing the blog party. I considered it, but ... don't quite 'get' the whole thing. I'll jump in later on. The 'Get Dressed' challenge was fun and motivating doing with with others.
    You're off to a great start on this blog - I'm impressed.

  7. Debi- I'm not quite sure about it myself, but figured I'd jump in and give it a try.

    Kristine- It is gorgeous up here...but I moved up because of my husband, not because I wanted too(my husband is born and raised up here).

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog. And isn't Caedmon such a cool name? So glad to have met someone with a little guy with the same name. :) It was a name with some powerful meaning to us. We have Caedmon's Hymn in Old English and modern English framed on his wall. Hopefully he will use his talents to praise God like his namesake did!

    It was great to get to know you a little. I hope we get to talk again soon!

  9. brrr- you said Alaska.
    Nice to meet you!

  10. Stopping by from UBP. Your kids are adorable!!

    Have a great week!

  11. Hi! You have a lovely blog! I am new to blogging and the UBP as well! Enjoy the party… what a great idea. Blessings on your day!

  12. Hi, here for the party! My brother lived in Alaska (courtesy of the Army). I think he loved it. He did lots of hunting when he wasn't deployed or working.

  13. Hi, Sam! It's great to meet you! I have 2 little girls (6 and 4), and we are homeschooling. My oldest is in kindergarten this year.

    I'm following! :)

  15. Just stopping by from the UBP at Five Minutes for Mom. I love your site and am subscribing to your RSS feed. I would appreciate it if you visited my blog and did the same! I'm looking forward to reading more and getting to know you better.

  16. Hi Sam. I thought I had left you a comment, but as I don't see it here, perhaps it didn't go through. I was having trouble with comments on some blogs (blogger aka: blogspot blogs to be specific) last week, so am using Google Chrome today to see if that resolves it. In any case, welcome to the wide wacky world of blogging. I'm quite new to it as well, and part of an apparently rare breed of "daddy bloggers". I actually started this blog to better understand what my wife was doing with her blog: Thanks for stopping by my humble home on the web. Enjoy the rest of your week.

  17. Visiting from UBP2010; so nice to meet you! Your children are precious and I look forward to reading more on your blog.

  18. hello, nice to meet you. like your blog.

  19. Nice to meet you! I have a 5 y.o. daughter, a 3 y.o. son, and a 1 y.o. son too!!

  20. Wow. We have SO much in common! Babies (yes), birth (yes), health and wellness (yes), traveling (in my dreams...), reading (yes), knitting (yes!).

    We should totally "hang out"! :) Of course, Alaska is a little far from Arkansas... Good thing we have the internet, right?

    Now I'm off to check out this phenomenon called "The Get Dressed Challenge," even though it sounds like it may be a smidge convicting. *sigh*

    Nice meeting you! If you have time, stop by my place at I'm actually having a giveaway, too!! (Bonus!)

  21. Nice to meet you everyone! Thanks for stopping by!
