Who Can Resist A Party?


I simply adore the ladies of 5 Minutes For Mom, so of course had to take this opportunity to hop around the blogosphere and party with them and a few hundred other fabulous women! 

Thanks so much for stopping by my little piece of the web today! 

My name is Stephanie, SassyModernMom on twitter.  I am the happily married Mama of two gorgeous girls living and laughing my way through life here in the Suburbs.  I’ve been blogging here at How To Survive Life In The Suburbs for just over four years.  Blogging has given me so many unexpected gifts, opened countless doors and enabled me to meet many new friends.  We are only a few months into 2013 and I can honestly say, it’s been  a whirlwind! 


I had the honour of blogging for Skinny Cow with Entertainment Tonight, live from the GRAMMYs!  I’m one of the P&G Mom’s sharing great health tips in this month’s Canadian Living Magazine.  I’m lucky enough to be heading to Disney this May to attend Disney Social Media Moms , and am currently helping to pay it forward by hosting the biggest giveaway my site has ever seen! Anyone want to spend a week in a gorgeous pool home a stone’s throw from Disney World?  Thanks to Global Resort Homes I’m giving away a week in a luxury vacation home in Orlando Florida, 4 Passes to SeaWorld, and 4 Passes for Boggy Creek Airboat Rides!  You can enter here!

I try and count my blessing every single day, I’m striving to live in the moment, and am truly learning how to laugh in the rain.

Thanks for stopping by to visit today!  It’s great to meet you and I hope you will come back soon!  Please do leave a comment so I can return the favour.
