Ultimate Blog Party Time!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Hi everyone! I hope that you are having a fabulous time at the ultimate blog party! If not be sure to go over to 5 minutes for mom and check out the fun! Not only will there be lots of exposure for your blog, but also lots of prizes! WooHoo! I am so excited! I can tell this is going to be one busy weekend. I hope I see you there!


Hello everyone my name is Sarah and now for a little about me. . . I am first and foremost a single mom who is fortunate enough to have an awesome daughter. I am also a registered nurse. I work at a children's psychiatric hospital on a full time basis. In my spare time I love to keep up my blog! I started my blog a long time ago during one of the bloggy carnivals and yes that was the main reason. Shame on me! Recently I decided this would be a great way to keep friends and family posted on Brea's new accomplishments and an easy way to show off recent pictures at work. Since starting I have come to realize that blogging is about so much more than that! I love meeting new people and hearing their stories about life. Quite often I have ran across information that was either helpful or absolutely needed at that time. It is great to find others out in the world who are going through the same things you are!

I would like to invite you to visit my Show off your Blog Saturday linky. I will be featuring this linky every week for other bloggers to link their favorite blog post for that week. I would love it if you would join us! I promise that if you link I'll visit and of course comment sometime during the next week.

So thank you all for visiting and have a great day!

Almost totally messed this one up! I would love to win in this order: 19,21, 22 USC16, USC22,26,118,105,103,99,98,91,82,23,43,50, USC63, USC56, USC47 , USC15, 123, USC11, Intl60, USC12

Hello from UBP09! I am glad to meet you!

Brea is Beautiful -- we'll have to introduce our kids in about 25 years!

When you get the chance stop by and say hi. I'm writing about living an abundant life (on a budget).

Enjoy the Party!

Tara @ Feels like home said...

It's great to meet you! :)

I'm a high school teacher, so I sometimes work with kids with psych issues. I can't imagine the strength it would take to work with kids who have those issues all the time. It must be rough emotionally.

Carrie said...

What a great blog and a good community building idea! Thanks for sharing about yourself!

Jean said...

Thanks for stopping by! I love your favorite posts idea and will get back to you on that. Look forward to learning more about you.

Penelope said...

Thanks for stopping by! It is very nice to meet you. I, too, have found some great information through blogging. It has become my first source of information for anything I need to know. :)

I would love to hear more about your experiences as a nurse and a mommy, so I have added your blog to my feed. Have a great weekend!

Fun post!

A nurse in a pedi psych hospital? I have so many students I'd love you to check out. Truly they need more help than we can provide for them in the schools.

Super Fun Mama said...

Hi, coming over from UBP. I'm trying to visit all the blogs. Right now, if I visit 149 per day in the next 7 days I'll make it. I'm hoping for long nap times for the next 7 days! Anyway, it is really nice to meet you and your blog. I have a toddler learning blog myself where we do a lot of learning activities and have fun. Blogs are my favorite way to spend time. They've totally replaced magazines for me. So nice to meet you! Have a magical day!

Lisa said...

You have a beautiful little girl. Glad you joined the blog party. Thanks for stopping by mine.

Hi! I'm stopping by with the Blog Party! What is it like working in a children's psychiatric hospital? How old are the children? I work with children with special needs, and I once worked in a therapeutic learning center for preschoolers with serious psychiatric disorders (such as RAD, schizophrenia, etc)it was actually one of my favorite jobs ever!

It was nice to meet you!
