I'm so glad you are visiting me today. Whether you came by rss feed, Facebook or the Ultimate Blog Party, I hope you enjoy visiting my little corner of bloggy world.
A party today is just the thing to celebrate all the exciting things that have happened at Stephanie's Mommy Brain this year!
In January I participated in a blog tour for Made to Crave (linked to my review) by Lysa TerKeurst. If you haven't read the book yet, I highly recommend it. Made to Crave helped me look at food differently, and that's a good thing!
Then Shari Braendel featured my mom and I on her blog. Mom and I read Shari's book, Good Girls Don't have to Dress Bad (linked to my review), and gave ourselves makeovers. We had fun and now we each are working to maintain our new looks.
In March I applied for a $2,000 blogging grant from Mom Central. Each woman asks (begs?!) her friends, family and readers to help her gain enough votes to advance to the next round.
I'd love it if you clicked on the button and voted for 'Growing Stephanie's Mommy Brain.' I hope to use the money to attend She Speaks Conference, pay for a professional blog design, and launch a second blog that focuses on making the most of family time.
Those are some of the big things going on here at SMB. But, just like family life, most days are filled with ordinary ups and downs. Things like organizing pantry shelves (up!), realizing I'm overcommitted and overbalanced (down!), Maple sugaring with my family (up!), and potty training my 2 year old son (down!!). Life's full of the ordinary, isn't it?
So now that you are all caught up on the goings on here at Stephanie's Mommy Brain, let's move on to the fun part!
A couple of months ago I participated in a bloggers girls night out at Hair Cuttery (linked to my review). I had so much fun! Manicures, massages, and hair cuts, what's not fun about that?!
One of the items I found in my goody bag was a $25 gift card for Hair Cuttery. There are 800 Hair Cutterys on the East Coast, in New England and the Chicago areas.
I'm giving the $25 Hair Cuttery gift card to one of you!
