To continue with the good news, this week I had the opportunity to speak at the Mind Of Moms Conference. My topic was Diversity in the Mom Blogosphere. The conference was targeted at companies that are interested in working with Mom Bloggers and I along with Amy of Mom Advice, Tara of Deal Seeking Mom, Katja Presnal of Skimbaco Lifestyle, Lucretia of Geekmommy, Barbara of One2One Network and Kate of Divine Caroline were the speakers. If you search twitter using the hashtag #mindofmoms you can get a glimpse of everything that was discussed. There was media coverage of the event that included me and you can check out the television newscast here and the online coverage here.
Another special gift that I've received for Mother's Day is a new dishwasher!
I am not a domestic diva by any stretch of the imagination and frankly washing every dish before placing it in my current dishwasher has gotten old really fast. So being gifted with the opportunity from Mom Central to join Frigidaire's Team Dishwasher is certainly a Mother's Day gift I cherish. Fridgidaire has a new collection of over 250 appliances designed to help Mom cut down on cleaning time. When I actually have the dishwasher in my possession I will let you know about my experience using it. In the meantime, visit Frigidaire.com and report the five things they would do with an extra hour each day. All participants will be entered for a chance to win an entire suite of NEW Frigidaire appliances. Plus, check out other prizes you can win – like a gorgeous new Frigidaire Affinity washer/dryer. You can also join the facebook group
In the spirit of Mother's Day I hosted the Mom's Nite Out Celebration last night. It was so much fun. I will tell you more about it later because I think it deserves a post but needless to say we belly danced and it was a workout that I will not soon forget! Thanks to Resplendent Life, Simply Do You, The BlogRollers, Jewelry Rockstar, and Little Brown Jen for coming out to enjoy the fun. After the workout we spent quality time together over margaritas and Mexican food.
Speaking of Mother's Day, if you have not already gotten a gift for your Mom perhaps you will consider this one: making a donation to Infante Sano. For $25, you can honor your mother by helping another---ensuring that women in Latin America and the Caribbean have access to a clean, safe birth and their children have the healthy starts to life that they deserve. Visit Sponsor A Birth for more information.
And if you are looking for some funny this holiday weekend I suggest you visit The Mouthy Housewives. I am not sure who they are - that remains a mystery, but this group gives comedic advice that cannot be rivaled!
