2008 Mommyfest Blog Party and Giveaways

** This post will remain at the top of the page until the Mommyfest Blog Party is over - you can scroll down to see the newer posts.

By way of Introduction. . . I'm Meryl and I'm a thirty-something stay-at-home (SAHM) but sometimes part-time working mom to a 5 1/2 year old daughter. I have been married 13 years to a wonderfully supportive husband and 2 dogs complete our family for the moment. . . I began this blog as a supplement to my website - Chit Chat for Mommies. At whatever stage I have been at with my daughter thus far, there has been nothing more valuable and reassuring then connecting with other moms either going through the same stuff with me at the same time - or others who have already been there and done that. I also feel wonderful when I am able to add my own two cents in and help some other mom out as well. My goal for creating my website was to create that environment for you. There is no better group to belong to then the mommy group. We are always chatting about lots of interesting things. . .

What is going on here?. . .The MommyFest Blog Party is a five-day "celebration of motherhood" and runs from May 12 through May 16. It's a wonderful opportunity to meet new people, socialize online, discover new blogs, and even win some amazing prizes. I have never participated in a blog party but one of the most exciting things about them is that they are full of giveaways and this one is no exception. Check out MommyFest for the latest blog party info and list of prizes (current prizes include chocolate, graphic design, Amazon.com gift certificates, ebooks, and more). And of course MommyFest isn't the only place to win; many blog party-goers are hosting their own giveaways, so check the site for details on those.

AND, speaking of giveaways, MOMMY MERYL is hosting a giveaway too!

I am giving away 10 free ebooks of choice from the following:
1. How to Set Up a Family Budget
2. 224 Meals in a Hurry!
3. Fun Recipes for Kids
4. The Ultimate Potty Training Guide
5. Party Games (for kids, for teens and for adults)

AND 1 GRAND PRIZE GIVEWAY of Mom’s choice:
1. $15 gift certificate to Sassy Pink Boutique
2. $15 gift certificate to The Trendy Mommy Blog Designs
4. Tiny Toes book by Kelly Damron - a moving story about infertility & premature birth

To enter the giveaway, we only ask that Moms become a member of the Chatty Mommy Club - its FREE (they must confirm/opt in and not simply sign up). You can sign up at my Chit Chat for Mommies Website. The winners will be randomly chosen via random.org and notified by email on May 17th!

Good luck and thanks for stopping by!!
