It’s been a crazy past few days, including a Christmas celebration and a stomach bug that wreaked havoc on our entire household, but we are coming back up for air and can’t believe we’re just a few sleeps away from the big day! I’m embarrassed to say I’ve still got some shopping to do, so once 5 o’clock hits on Friday, game on! I have a feeling every retailer is going to be packed, but isn’t that part of the fun of last minute holiday shopping??
So I’m way behind on pretty much everything right now, but I wanted to pop in before the holiday and do something fun! I’ve been wanting to do something like this for a long time, and I’m finally getting around to it, and well, it finally feels right. This blog has been a part of my life for almost 6 1/2 years now, and I’ve loved every second of writing it, and getting to know you, my readers. Without you, I probably wouldn’t have stuck with it, and wouldn’t have met some of my best “internet friends”. They say it takes a village to raise a child, and part of my village just happens to be a bunch of people I’ve never met. Without you, I wouldn’t have discovered an amazing, online support system for all things motherhood. And without you, I would have never documented so many of my favorite memories or written out so many of my raw feelings through these new stages of life. I’m so thankful I have so much content to look back on now and cherish, and a large part of that is thanks to you, and the push and encouragement to do so.
To celebrate and to thank you all for sticking around, reading, and following me through the years, I’m hosting a fun little My Favorite Things giveaway over on Instagram!
I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite things, including a few of my favorite small shops from fellow mom bosses, and I think it’s a fantastic little spread of goodies.
To enter, simply head over to my Instagram, and check out the latest post to read all about it!
Here’s a peek at what’s included:
- Santa coffee mug – because coffee = life.
- Volcano candle – my absolute FAVORITE candle scent in all the land.
- $5 Old Navy gift card – I shop for the kids and myself here way too often!
- Motherhood + Apple Pie Etsy Shop Credit – makers of super comfortable mom tees, bamboo tops, and necklaces, shop with them HERE!
- Life Love Creations Etsy Shop Credit – this shop has the cutest tees, tumblers, and party supplies, shop with them HERE!
- Beautycounter lip gloss – my favorite SAFE skincare and cosmetics company, thanks to Jana, shop with her HERE!
- Plexus Breast Check Self Exam Kit – thanks to Cassandra, shop with her HERE! I can’t stress how important this is for us mamas to remember to take care of ourselves. We’re not too young, and just because you breastfeed, doesn’t mean you’re in the clear. Remember to check yourself, ladies!
And there you have it! Giveaway is open to U.S. residents only, and will end Friday, December 21 at midnight, with a winner announced Saturday morning, December 22. Just in time for one last spread of Christmas cheer!
