Mommy Monday with a Competition

I have enjoyed the last 4 months off from blogging...but have missed you all!!! Last year I ended up trying to blog at least 5 days a got OLD for me to be so committed to trying to blog that much a week and I was burned out. I am a busy, busy momma!!! So this year I am not committing myself to any certain times a week to blogging.

I will at least try to blog once a week on one of the following days:
- Mommy Mondays in which I will share some adventures in mommyhood
- Tummy Tuesdays full of nom nom nom recipes
- Welcome Wednesdays for featuring fellow Etsy shop owners or Etsy products
- Treasury Thursdays I will share my latest treasury I currated on Etsy
- Fun Fridays will be filled with kids crafts and activities
- Shop Squalor Saturday will be focused around my Etsy shop

Thank you to all that have followed my blog and adventures :)


Last year I came across this fantastic contest for mom based businesses...and thought I would submit my little company. I ended up ranked 164th out of over 1000 contestants!!! I was so thrilled :) You can vote daily until April 30th...and then through votes and a panel of judges; the top 200 US mom-based businesses will be selected and the women that run them honored.

Here is a link to vote for my shop...and thanks in advanced for all of the votes!
