Tommee Tippee Giveaway – Ends 5/24

We joke that Sweet T has a drinking problem. She's practically a camel! It's a good thing she only gets milk and water at home since she's probably drink even more if soft drinks, tea, and juice were available all the time. We received a set of Tommee Tippee Explora drinking cups that have a 9oz capacity. Since we were using a small 6oz cup for her … [Read More...]

Cleava Snap-to-Bra Cami Giveaway – Ends 5/21

Conservative best describes my fashion style (ok sloppy best describes it now that I'm a mom, but you know what I mean) and I'm happy to have found a product that will help with my cleavage-phobia. I've never been one to "let it all hang out" so fortunately when I was a teen it was popular to pair a tank top with low-cut or button-down shirts. … [Read More...]

There was food, there was fun, there was fatigue! I don't think I've keep such an intense pace of activity since before I was married. At 21 weeks pregnant, I'm proud of myself for keeping up!

A behind the scenes look at what it takes to earn an income through blogging

So you want to make money blogging…

Each week I received inquiries in the form of everything from serious emails to offhanded comments about how to start a blog. Mom bloggers in particular have a bad rap for being snobby, cliquish, and unwilling to help others now that they themselves have "made it to the top" (where ever that is). While I'm sure there are genuine cases of this … [Read More...]
