Ultimate Blog Party 2013
It’s a party, and I’m fashionably late.
First off, thank you UBP party goers for stopping by Home Maid Simple.  Put down those brooms and dusters, hire a maid for the day and let’s party!
I actually debated joining the party this year. I have no idea why I would debate such a thing. I’ve joined the last two years and got to “meet” many fun bloggers, as well as businesses.  In fact you should check out My Sweet Potato 3 etsy shop – last year I won a fun dinosaur hat from her.  Still love it on the little Prince.
So better late then never right?  If you haven’t been by Home Maid Simple before let me show you around.
You should really start with my About Me page.  I’m fun, quirky, but most importantly I’m mom and wife to the best family ever. 
Did you read it?  And you came back?  Awesome, you are now my new favorite reader šŸ™‚
Now that you know a little bit more about me, let’s look at this place I call my blog.  I began Home Maid Simple during a tumultuous time in my life.  Mark (aka husband, hubby, handsome) had recently finished school and we were settling into his new job. I had no friends nearby, and was hitting a stage all too familiar in PPD after our 3rd child.  I needed an out – a place I could do something just for me.   Although I really wanted to go back to school myself, it just wasn’t in the car yet.  I looked around, and decided I needed motivation.  Motivation to be a better person, mother, wife, and homemaker.  What better way to do that than share myself with the world. 
This blog has grown immensely ever the past 2 1/2 years since it was born. My writing has improved, and I’ve become a better person – truly I have.
While you my readers give me the motivation, you’re probably wondering “what do I get out of this relationship?”
Allow me to show you – 
Cool link parties full of yummy food every Friday
BWS tips button
Extremely fun, and sometimes completely random thoughts on Thursdays….but always thought provoking
And periodically you also get to hear about some awesome companies and receive discounts with the occasional giveaway.
{hint, now would be a good time to check out the sidebar —-> for my current giveaways}
If you are getting to me late in the party, you may have missed them, but be assured I have an amazing, probably the best giveaway ever coming up end of April…..something like oh a Pfister faucet….shhhh I didn’t say anything yet!
Of course if you missed the giveaways don’t despair!  I do still have a savings opportunity for you.  I mean what’s a party without a little goodie?
Head over to Conscious Box and get 25% off your subscription
And if that isn’t enough for you, I’ve got 5 invites to give out to a new site called Happify.  It’s the newest social media site all about getting happy and spreading happiness around.  The first 5 comments to request an invite and leave a contact email will be sent the invite.  Happify is still in beta mode, so it is by invite only you can join right now.  
Come on all, and let’s get happy!  You better chase all your cares away!
(FYI.. I very periodically break out into song as well.)

  1. Can you believe I've been blogging for 5 years and love 5 Minutes for Mom but have only participated in the party like, once??? This year I"m participating but through (one of) the companies I work for. Enjoyed reading your post though and learning a little more of your "back story" since I kind of jumped into your blog "in the middle" Haha šŸ™‚

  3. Hi!

    I have been going back through the UBP13 to find people to connect with that I missed the first time around. I am coming back to do your Spring Cleaning Guide… tomorrow, or Monday, or by next Friday for sure, really, I am. I hope. I need to. So, thanks for that, seriously.
