Ultimate Blog Party! Woot!


Hello!  If this is your first time here a big fat welcome to you! 

I’m Stephanie, SassyModernMom and am jumping into my very first Ultimate Blog Party!  What a great way to connect with some other fabulous bloggers, find some new reads and have a chance to win some great prizes too!


A little bit about me.  I’m a married Mama of two, live in Ontario Canada and blog about what really goes on behind the closed and often competitive doors of the suburbs.  I do my very best to tell it like it really is.  Should I mention that many of my in real life friends don’t even know I blog?  Yep, this way I can REALLY tell it like it is!  The good, the bad and the embarrassing.  I also throw in the odd giveaway!  I have a passion for self portraits, coffee, popcorn, all things family, true friendship and have been bitten by the travel bug. 


My latest venture is as the Social Media Liaison for MiracleMoms.  Along with the Children’s Miracle Network and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, we have put together a team of ten bloggers from across Canada and the United States to help tell the stories of incredible families who’s lives have been touched by the need to use their services.  I am honoured and humbled to be involved.  I hope all of you will tune in at the beginning of May and follow our #MiracleMoms hashtag as we try and make a difference in the lives of some very special children. 

Please follow me here at How To Survive Life In The Suburbs, join me on my Facebook page and give me a shout out on twitter.  Best of luck to those hoping to win that $75.00 Starbucks Gift Card from the UBP!

Oh and if you are Canadian…my $150 Gerber Graduates giveaway was just posted yesterday, hop on over and enter!

Bye for now!

  2. Hi Stephanie! Glad to have found your blog! MiracleMoms sounds amazing and I can’t wait to read more.

  3. Hey pretty lady. Your first UBP? Wow! My very first was the month after I first started blogging 2 years ago. I debated doing it again this year but it is just not a good time since I am in a blogging funk. Don’t want people to run away from my boring dead blog. Hope you have a blast though and I may catch you around the live events. I met a lot of great people the 2 years I participated.

  4. Hi…. I come for the party ^___^ I found your site from UBP 2012. Hope you come to my party post too, http://bit.ly/ubp2012. While you are there, feel free to enter our current giveaway (few of them in cash). Thank you.
