It’s The Ultimate Blog Party 2011!!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

It is party time!!! If you are new to The Diaper Diaries thank you so much for stopping by. I have the BEST loyal readers on the planet and would love for you to join them. This is a really serious and deep blog where we discuss the most serious and deep issues. Oh my word, APRIL FOOLS!! Did you read my tagline “Always Loaded, Sometimes Full of Crap”? Clearly we don’t take ourselves too seriously around here.

I love finding the humor in life. With three little kids at home, I can find a lot of it. But I also love to encourage you to find the humor in your life, even the most mundane parts. An Open Letter To The People of the Gym is one of my personal favorites.

One of my other favorite things to write about are….my favorite things (allow myself to introduce…….myself). So I host the weekly “Things I Love Thursday” carnival……on Thursday. Feel free to stop by every week and link up one of your posts. Or if nothing else, come read what everyone else is liking. I have discovered some awesome things that way.

Ok so occasionally I get serious. In fact one of the things I am most passionate about is seeing people rock their marriages. I have been married ten years to the most wonderful man in the world and we teach marriage prep to the young ins at our church. So I have been posting a weekly post on Mondays to encourage you in your marriage. Love is….. is one of my favorites.

Either way I hope you will poke around a bit. You can always find me over on Facebook and Twitter as well. Happy hopping!!

To add to the party fun, I want to introduce you to some of my blogging friends! There are ten of us who each have a picture of a word in our post. These pictures will make up a quote about friendship. We will each link you up to the lady who has the next word in the sentence—but keep in mind that I might not have the first word in the sentence! Once you have the sentence, e-mail it to sisterchickies@gmail.com with “UBP11″ in the subject line. Each person with the correct sentence will be in a drawing to win a $100 Target gift card! Winner will be announced on all of our blogs April 11 and the winner will be e-mailed. The winner has 48 hours to respond or we’ll pick someone else.

I thought

You next clue can be found with Tricia at Once a Month Mom.

    I hope I’m doing this right….I guess we have to check back each day cuz I can’t find Tricia’s post anywhere on that site….(I think I know a couple other of the 10 and I don’t see anything posted off hand….LET THE FUN BEGIN!!! LOL)

  2. Visiting from UBP11! I love the idea of connecting your blog to several others! I’ll be checking them all out! Hop on over to my blog at http://www.jillsavage.org where I’ll be giving away several books each day at the party!

  3. Love the quote scramble. Enjoying reading the articles on marriage. Have you read or watched the series called Love & Respect by Dr Emerson Eggerichs? In my opinion, it’s a must read/watch for all couples! It was such an eye opener and I can’t recommend it enough!
    I also would love to share my testimony on how God saved our marriage and want others to know it is so possible to recover from what transpired in our marriage. But because of the nature of what happened, I would only feel comfortable posting it anonymously. I know God will use our testimony to minister to others but I know hubby is not ready to shout it to the world yet.

  12. following the sister chicks trail…

    after almost 8 years of changing diapers, I am nearing the end of that stage of my life… and I had 3 in diapers for 6 months, looking forward to reading more of your posts!

  13. Stopping by from UBP11… having fun on your sister chickies word hunt. I think it’s awesome that you teach marriage class to young people at your church. I’ve been married to my husband for 12 years and still going strong. :)

  14. Love the word hunt!

    I love your tagline too – gotta have humor to get through it all. And like the marriage meme idea. For me.. love is letting someone else touch my feet. I knew hubby was the one from that :P

  15. Just making the round of the UBP11. Love the scavenger hunt idea! Mommy of 5 who’s changed a lot of diapers herself …


    And Twins make 5!

  22. This scavenger hunt is such a great idea! Happy UBP11!

  23. Hurray, I figured out what yours was going to say at the last one because you were my last stop! Wow, I can’t believe I got it! Anyhow, I love your tagline! Pretty cute! What a blessing that you teach the young people at your church about marriage. What an example! Especially since you dig your husband!

    I’m #115 at the #ubp11

  24. Stopping by from UBP! Love that you focus on marriage as well as the rest of family life, since goodness knows marriage has been in the back seat since Peanut 1 and 2 came along. Looking forward to reading, and I’ve linked up on FB and Twitter. I’m at facebook.com/itbuildscharacter and @chimomwriter / @build_character.
