First, thank you SO much to all of you who took the time to visit my sponsors' shops and facebook pages & entered my first ever Sponsor Giveaway. It's been a pleasure to "introduce" you to each of them this week; and, I sincerely hope that you will support their businesses.
On that note, I am happy to announce the winner of $25.00 to spend at either Boy Oh Boy, One Delightful Button, Perch, Room to Romp, or Thirty-One is... Kelli C.
Congratulations Kelli! Look for an email from me today with details about claiming your prize!
Next, here are a few of my favorite things in the blog world this week:
Advice for a First Time Mom from Don't Quote the Raven
What TO Say to Moms from The Orange Rhino on Blogher Moms
Five Things I Want My Boys to Know about Love on MOB Society
How It Feels to Be Me on Ok BA! - This post caused quite a stir in the community, and some of the comments really made me cringe. Personally, I applaud BA for not being afraid to talk about the good and the bad. I love her realness, her vulnerability, and her humor.
Finding God in a Little White Pill on A Deeper Family
Modern Social Media Etiquette on Design Sponge
And, finally, just a quick reminder that I will be taking a blog break beginning on Wednesday (2/13) until March 30th (oh man, on mornings like this when I browse through my reader and make lists like the one above, I'm not sure I can survive this). I am so thankful that many of you have volunteered to write guest posts for me during that time... I think I'm going to have some great hands to leave you in! *BTW* I have really tried to be good about responding to your emails with questions about posts etc.; however, I'm sure I've missed one or two! If you are interested in posting, just send me your post - I'm not being picky! :)
I've already received a few posts; but if you haven't gotten yours to me yet, don't forget to submit it by tomorrow so that I have time to get everything set-up by "Fat Tuesday."
Enjoy your weekend!
