Spring Fling Event!

I am really, really excited to be a part of Outnumbered 3 to 1, and think the timing of getting on board was serendipitous! Melissa is getting together a pretty fantastic Spring Fling Event. The sponsors are starting to come in now, and she'd got some great stuff. Spring is one fantastic time of year with the warmer temps and holidays (Mother's Day anyone?)...Keep your eyes out for reviews and giveaways galore!

Travel on my mind...

I have many different thoughts on travel these days. First and foremost- I long to go away somewhere, and relax. Sleep. And not be stuck in the house with three children under two- alone all day long. But what would I do? Where would I go? If we took the kids, how would we get there? Um...flying would be tough because we are still outnumbered. I hope that someday I will look forward to traveling again- and my husband and I will be able to go places and do things that do not involve changing diapers or waking in the middle of the night to feed someone.

That new obsession is to win a trip for us to go somewhere. I think that might be the motivation to go- if we won, we'd find a way to do it. We would fly grandma down here and GO. I am..plugging away looking for a trip to take. I recently discovered the site Trekaroo and found that they have a Monday Madness giveaway every week! This week it is a trip to a TradeWinds Island Resort in Florida. We can do Florida. It's probably a days' drive, but we could handle it. I MIGHT even consider flying since it's such a short flight and it is pretty inexpensive to fly there. Plus bonus- my grandma lives not far away. Anyhow- I think I can handle an hour or so being on a plan being 'that mom' with 'that kid'. I just hope everyone else can!

Who doesn't love Dinosaur Train?

My son and I love watching Dinosaur Train. He loves trains...he loves dinosaurs too---perfect! And it is such a cute show, how can anyone resist? My only complaint is that there aren't nearly as many episodes as I'd like. In the meantime, however, I will be happy playing 'Make Me A Match' with B..and if we're lucky we might win it at 2 Boys + 1 Girl = 1 Crazy Mom!

Meal planning..what?

Wow- I totally forgot about this giveaway ending today. I think giveaway or not, I need to investigate this site a little further. Meal planning is a nightmare in our house. My husband and I pretty much wait until an hour before one of us runs to the grocery store to plan the same old, same old meals for the week. At 2 Boys + 1 Girl = 1 Crazy Mom they have an awesome giveaway right now with 'Menu for the Week'. I know we can use all the help that we can get with menu planning----but I do have to give my husband kudos for trying as hard as he does.

Get UP

So I am really interested in trying out the Thred UP deal. I remember a few months ago I saw a blurb about it online, and have been interested ever since. Basically, it is a kids clothing exchange- you get a box for a box, pay shipping, and get great clothes! What better way to get started than by winning a membership? One of my favorite blogs, My Baby's Green, is giving away a year PRO membership. While you are there, check out what else she has to offer. She has a wonderful little store with organic and eco friendly things for the kiddos!

Fun Stuff

So it is official, I am a contributing writer at Outnumbered 3-to-1! I'm very excited and thrilled with the ladies that I am working with. It's so great to meet people (even virtually) and hit it off immediately. We all have similarities and differences that compliment one another - which will in turn (I think) make the blog something really special. Big thanks to Melissa for picking me to be on the team!

And in other news, a couple of good friends of mine have blogs of their own that are really doing well. First, is my friend Ashley who just started Freckleberry Finds. She is making it a one stop parenting/recipe/giveaway blog! I'm very happy for her, as she is on the verge of her first giveaway and is jumping in with both feet.

My other friend is Kelly Ashworth of Kelly Ashworth Design. She has a pretty awesome blog herself, but is also the very creative force behind her design company AND a new first time mommy. She recently got a shout out on Desert Living Today--which is quite flattering.

Both ladies are running giveaways right now that you really, really, really should check out. Really.

Love my talented peeps. Good luck ladies!
