P-A-R-T-WHY?? Because I gotta!

Hi!  Today I did something spontaneous
Ultimate Blog Party 2010

I joined this thing called the Ultimate Blog Party 2010.  I’d love to explain it to you in my own words, but I’m barely hangin’ in there myself, so it’d be better if you just go here.

If you’re visiting for the first time, welcome!  I’ll give you a quick intro…

My name's Emily.  You can call me "Em"
I’m from Arkansas,
23, happily married, & a mommy-wanna-be.
I love Jesus.
I love singing to Him too.
the artsy fartsy type,
and I like feeding people good food, 

like this stuff over in "The Kitchen:” 

And when I’m in the USA,
I work for the Queen.

Leave me a comment with your blog name so I can see who’s stopped by & check out your blog!

If you’re a frequent visitor (which, I’m not really sure I have one of those yet, except for my mom and grandma), but if you are one of those…thanks!!   You’re nice.  (You too, Momma & Grammy!)

Part of the UBP 2010 is a chance to win prizes!  The deal is to post which ones I like, so here goes; the prizes I dig are:

Mrs. Meyer’s Laundry Prize Pack (#96) from Mama’s Laundry Talk
Shutterfly giftcard (#85) from Scraps of My Geek Life
and a Starbucks giftcard (#49) from Janice Yurek
or #30, 71, USC3, & 7


  1. Dear Em,
    Thanks so much for stopping by! It is very nice to meet you, and I hope you enjoy the rest of the party!

  2. Stopping by from UBP 10... happy party day!


  3. Hi from the UBP 2010! It's so nice to "meet" you and I hope you enjoy the party!

  4. The Queen is quite a lady with a lot of character! Anyhow, I had a nice time stopping by today and Happy UBP10!

  5. Love your blog, and prayed this morning that you would have a fruitful ministry in Nicaragua. Thank you for putting feet to the Gospel! And thanks for stopping by our place for UBP10.

  6. Hi there! Popping in to be your newest Google Follower from UBP-Hooray! Hope all is well in Nicaragua. What an amazing journey you're on! Have a super weekend and feel free to swing by my blog!

  7. So many sites, so little time...I am glad to check out yours, hope you'll pop over and visit mine!

    Oooh, those cake pops look grand! I have been making and decorating cakes for about 4 years now, but I have never made anything quite like those.

  8. Hi there.
    Stopping by via the Ultimate Blog Party to say hello.
    Have a great day!

  9. Just found you from the blog party! Happily following you and hope you follow back!

  10. I did the same thing! This is the first time I've joined up with the UBP, too! So great to meet you!

  11. hilarious blog!! Fun stuff. I haven't been to Nicaraugua, but I've been to: Honduras, Panama, Ecuador, Guatemala..

  12. You sound a very fun person!
    Stopping by from UBP2010... I chose to click to you because 324 is your blog number on the list and 324=18x18 and 18 is my fave number (yup, I have a degree in maths and numbers are fab!!)

    Come and check our me too :-)

  13. Hi Em,
    Thank you so much for stopping by my place on the web. I am listening to your songs right now, I like!!

    I couldn't believe when I saw you are missionaries to Nicaragua, the Lord has put that on my heart since 2009. I want to do something with the women and children, not sure what. There are some ladies from our church that go periodically. Their thinking they may go in late fall/early winter. It cost them around $2000 to go on one trip. The Lord would certainly have to provide the money, if He wants me to go. We are deep in debt with hospital bills. It's funny as I'm writing this your song `Totally Dependent` started playing.

  14. Since our pie wasn't ready earlier, we thought you might like a bedtime snack.


  15. I'm so glad you stopped by my blog - I do missions work in India and my fiance and I are hoping to go over there together one day. :) Thanks for sharing your work with all of us here!

    Honey and Cheese got its name from nicknames my fiance and I have for each other. Mine's the Honey part and his is the Cheese. :)

    Have a blessed and beautiful day!

  16. Beautiful music, by the way! Thank you sharing your heart for worship with us. I'll definitely be sharing a link to your music site with friends. What a fabulous ministry - and a great way to help support your missions ministry!

  17. Oh you are making me hungry with the food pictures. Hope you are enjoying UBP10. I know I am.

  18. thanks for stopping by. That house is beautiful. Since we have dealt with the toxic drywall in our new home, we plan on getting a older "fixer upper" next and I look forward to it.

  19. What a fun post!! Good to meet you and thanks for stopping by my blog. I too love to cook for people! I'm going to read some more of your posts.

  20. It's so fun to meet you! I love your recipe pictures. Those cake pops are so cute!


  21. HOW FUN! I can't believe you are living in a country I can't spell! I have to follow, just for the excitement. I'll travel through your blog while I sit on my bum.

  22. I love your voice (I love singing to Him, too!) and I'm drooling over those food pics. =) Thanks for sharing and thanks for stopping by my place. I'm adding you to Google Reader. Have a good weekend!

    (And thanks for stopping by and commenting!)

  23. Thanks Em for stopping by Making Over Me as part of The UBP'10! LOVE ALL THREE OF YOUR BLOGS! Definitely going to try out some of your great eats on The Kitchen and I'm trying to keep my jealousy at bay re: The Queen. LOVE IT.
    AND to top it off...you are living in Latin America...my 2nd favorite continent! I spent 3 months in Ecuador many moons ago...and then another month in Colombia last year while adopting my three kiddos. Hablamos ingles Y espanol en nuestra casa y me adoro la cultura del Sur America!

    I'm becoming a follower of this and your other blogs. Best wishes to you y tu esposo and your work in Nicaragua!

  24. Hi, I'm visiting from the UBP.

    Queen is beautiful. I love the style of 18th century homes.

  25. Oh what an adventure you are on! I plan to be in Haiti in December with my husband and 2 kiddos.

    You asked me what kind of cheese and crackers I like:
    Sharp Cheddar and stoned Wheat Thins
    Brie and triscuits :)
    Happy UBP!

  26. Stopping by from UBP! Nice to meet you!

  27. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog on the UBP! The Queen is gorgeous!

  28. Thanks for stopping by 504 Main. The Queen is fantastic. Where I live, we have tons of Victorians...I am not sure I'll get this right but I think it is like the highest number of Victorians per capita in the U.S. I wanted to live in one so badly, but we couldn't find one. I just joined the blog party.

  29. Your food looks so yummy. I just have to follow you!

  30. Hi, Em! Wandered over from you other site. Your cd is fantastic! I shared it on FB. I'm really glad I got to meet you through UBP. Love your artwork, too! I'll be a regular around here now :)

  31. Just stopping by from the UBP at Five Minutes for Mom. You have a great site. I would love it if you visited my blog and left me a comment! I'm looking forward to reading more and getting to know you better.

  32. Nice to meet you!

    I found your site yesterday. And also went and checked out your music.

    WOW! I'm lovin' girl! Number 1 you've got an amazing gift from God through your voice! Number 2 your songs are so Christ centered and I just love them!

    So, I had to come back today and let you know! lol...


  33. Hi! I actually found your blog because another lady linked to it on her after-party post. I like some of the things I've read on your blog, so I think I'll stick around awhile and get to know you.
