I'm Back (again) So let's PARTY!!!

It's that time again where 5 Minutes for Mom is hosting the Ultimate Blog Party! This year the party has fallen the week after my birthday, (April 4) and what a great way to celebrate!

Life has been busy for the Everson family these days. I know that some of my readers know who I am, but for the next week I'll be getting lots of new visitors from the blog party. So let me say a few things about myself! (you can read my last years intro here. I had put a little more work into it that year...)

I'm a SAHM of a 1 1/2 yr. old boy who can't get enough of balls, sports, and daddy! He is SUCH a boy! :) Here's a picture of us when we were visiting my parents! He loves the camera!

My husband and I just finished traveling with the Bible Revival Team where we were traveling every week to a new church ministering in music and Revival Meetings. Our house is a travel trailer that will hopefully some day become our vacation trailer as we are in the process of looking for a more stable house to live in permanently. We traveled for two years and just moved to Midland, Michigan. My husband started working the day we drove into town (PTL!) with a home improvement business, and I'm currently looking for a babysitting job.

I enjoy couponing and saving money so that one day I can have the stock-up pantry of my dreams when we do move into a house!

I've been away from my blog just because life has been hectic as we just moved into town, I left for a week to see my parents in Wisconsin, searching for coupons(!), and birthday celebrations and Easter also took a big chunk of my time. AND a 1 1/2 year old can do that too! :)
Us (brother on top of the propeller and sister on the right. Mom and dad were with us too!) in Mackinaw City for my birthday!

But I hope that this UBP will help inspire me to get back to blogging! Now that I'm not moving from state to state and won't have to worry about having internet or not, I should be more committed!

Thanks for stopping by! Please come again! I will be posting more deals that I find and please share if you find something that ought to be shared! :) Now off to do some blog hopping!

  2. Hi, stopping by from the UBP! You little boy is the cutest! I hope that you will find a home soon.

  3. I bet you'll really enjoy stockpiling once you land somewhere with a little storage space. Be careful- it can become a monster, LOL. I had to learn the hard way how much to stockpile for my family so that we could use it up and not wind up tossing stuff that expired.

    My party post is up HERE- I hope you'll stop by and say hello! :)

  7. UBP brought me to visit and I see you have a swidget, I guess that means we're the same! We like to earn SwagBucks to bring us UPS trucks with boxes that all bear our name!
