Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Here at A Heart for Home, we're particpating in 5 Minutes for Mom's Ultimate Blog Party.

If you’re new to A Heart for Home…thanks for coming over!

My husband, Tim and I have two far. Our daughter is a 22 month old ball of pure, smiling, energy. Our 6 month old son is more laid back, but is definitely starting to show his own unique personality. This blog contains "snapshots of our lives, as we live, love, and learn together." We are really just a simple family striving to live a life pleasing to God.

We enjoy our family, great deals, good food, making things with our hands, organizing our home, organic gardening, and supporting small businesses.

We usually participate in a variety of blog carnivals and enjoy reading new blogs and finding great ideas and inspiration.

We also spotlight Etsy shops in our Etsy Shop Showcase feature. If you're interested in donating an item in exchange for some free publicity, leave us a comment with a link to your Etsy shop and we'll get in touch with you. (Check out some of our past review and giveaways here.)

Please, leave us a comment telling us about yourself.

We'd also appreciate feedback on our blog. So take a look around and let us know what you think. If you like what you see, follow us or subscribe to our blog to stay updated with what's going on here at A Heart for Home. We'd love for you to grab our button from the left sidebar for your blog. Thanks!

My top 3 prize choices are:
#58 Kitchen Aid Artisan Stand Mixer from Moms Who Think
INTL #55 Hassle Free Dinners (pdf) PLUS Three Steps to Planning Dinner (pdf) from Beverly Coggins of 1-2-3…Get Organized
INTL #31 ABC Bible Memory Verse Songs with Parent/ Teacher Guide (Download) from Sonbeams

I’d also enjoy #5, USC #30, USC #1, INTL #26, USC #57, #84, any of the Target Gift Cards or Advertising Spots.

Be sure to take a look at all the great prizes you could win over at the Ultimate Blog Party Headquarters!

You have a neat blog. I like the idea of your daily routine. It was so nice when we could take those times together when I was a SAHM. When I went to work...the schedule its everyone out the door before 7:30 and keep quiet for the one that sometimes gets to sleep in late. Your children are beautiful. Enjoy this time with them.

Hi, I'm here for the party. It's really nice to meet you. I also think daily schedules are very important. Otherwise, things just get out of hand and overwhelming. I hadn't heard of Swagbucks. I'll look into it since you make it sound so great, especially in this economy.

Since you like good food, you will probably enjoy my blog. It's all about desserts, lots of chocolate, field trips to Paris, GIVEAWAYS and fun.
