Mom Bloggers get loads of ideas and tips before our national holiday, Mother’s Day.  Here’s a round-up of some of the latest news we’ve seen that will make your Mother’s Day as sweet as possible.  Plus, when you finish reading this post, enter to win a $300 Mother’s Day prize.  Read on…

  • Created a “Got Milk Mustache” picture (do you like mine with my own mom?  Couldn’t get my mustache straight, but you get the drift!).
  • New book:  My Parents Were Awesome.   I’m presuming the title means “were awesome in raising me.”  Love the sub-title:  Before Fanny Packs and Minivans, They Were People Too.   The book includes a special section where you can personalize with your favorite image of your parents and your own memories.
  • Jewish Women International (JWI) is doing a wonderful community service project:  the Mother’s Day Flower Project.  Through this program, they send bouquets, stationery and beauty products, and an inspiring poster to 200 battered womens’ shelters.

Finally, we’re offering what was referred to as “the mother of all giveaways” – 7 different products with a total value of $300!  We’ll draw a name at random from all of the comments to this post.  The $300 gift includes…Lexli 30-Day Skincare Starter Kit (4-step system, beautiful skin, as nature intended); Le Baby Hair Gel (lightweight, easy to spike hair, tackle unwanted fly-aways); Envyderm Lash Regrowth Serum (groundbreaking, new non-prescription formula); Beanstalk Express Snack Time Survival Kit (world’s first snacktivity game); The Bar Method pre-natal workout  DVD & Onesie (full-body exercise program using a ballet bar fitness technique); the book “My Beautiful Mommy” (ground-breaking new children’s book on plastic surgery); and Dermacyte Eye Complex  (give your skin a breath of fresh air).
