Ultimate Blog Party 2012 #UBP12

Ultimate Blog Party 2012

For the first time last year, I attended the Ultimate Blog Party.  I had just started blogging, so I was able to learn from veteran bloggers and meet some great people!  One of the greatest things about The Ultimate Blog Party is all the cool prizes.  This year, I donated a $25 gift certificate to Victoria Secret!  Once you've checked out all the great prizes, click here to fill out the form to enter!

If you are visiting from the UBP12, welcome!  Let me introduce myself.  I'm Mandi, the author here at Sweet Tiny Blessings.  I started blogging at the beginning of April last year, as a way of therapy.  My daughter and I had just recovered physically from a traumatic situation, but I still needed to heal emotionally.

Here at Sweet Tiny Blessings, I enjoy blogging about my family, faith, and fun.  I love to review products for my readers and host giveaways.  As part of my New Year's Resolution, I decided to take baby steps to keep my family healthy.  So, here at Sweet Tiny Blessings, you'll see more and more posts, reviews and giveaways of eco-friendly products.  We definitely have a long way to go, but we certainly have come a long way.

Here are some of my blog posts to check out if you'd like to get to know us a little better:

The Pacifier!  Love It Or Hate It?
Homeless
Life Changes
Does She Know I'm Mommy?
Bullies
Picking A Pediatrician 


A little more about me and my family.  My family is originally from Florida.  My husband and I met on Match.com.  We then moved to Colorado.  Shortly before getting married, I lost my job as a Director of Education for a tutoring company, due to the fall of the economy.  With the bills piling up and a wedding to pay for, two weeks after getting married, my husband took a great paying position to get us back on track.  The only catch was, it was in Iraq.  I moved back to Florida to be with family.  It was difficult spending the 1st year of marriage apart.  After his month long vacation home, he returned to Iraq when I found out I was pregnant.  We recently moved back to Colorado with our Sweet Tiny Blessing, Baby C.  We are currently in the process of building our home and can't wait to settle in.

Please feel free to browse around, leave comments, subscribe to my blog and follow me on Facebook and Twitter.  I look forward to getting to know you too!
