One Year Blogiversary {with a BIG giveaway}!!!

Wow! It was one year ago that I made the decision to launch Mom Endeavors! After years of having a very private family blog (I didn’t want my high school students to have easy internet access to all kinds of details about our family) and years of reading all kinds of other blogs, I decided to create my own public space–a place to share all those things I do that the grandparents aren’t necessarily interested in (they just want pictures/stories about the kids)! 😉

I wasn’t sure how it would go; I wasn’t sure if anyone but the handful of friends & family members who read the other site would ever see it; I wasn’t even sure about all things I would write about (in fact, when I originally started I thought it might be about a lot of couponing stuff!)! So, I’m beyond thrilled with that I’ve found a whole variety of endeavors that I like writing about and everything that’s happened as a result! Here are some of my favorite posts from the past year:

Spider Web Snacks

Dr. Seuss Family Foot Book

Snowflake Pretzels

Turkey Fruit Snacks

Homemade Train Party Decorations

Then, there’s an extra special place in my heart for the Magazine Bows since it was my very first tutorial post! And, my most personal & heartfelt post was actually a series on “When Breastfeeding Doesn’t Work–something on my heart that I felt compelled to share and based on the comments, I am so glad that I did!

So, most importantly, THANK YOU for reading! A blog isn’t much without readers and I so appreciate you stopping by my little nook of the blogosphere and commenting, encouraging, & sharing!!

When I published that first little post a year ago, I could have never imagined all the fun things that have happened! I’ve learned SO much, had amazing opportunities to work with some fantastic companies and cool products, and most special…met some amazing people–some of whom I am so glad to now call my friends! And, it just so happens that some of these awesome people also happen to have some great products!!

So, to celebrate this BIG blogging milestone and as a great BIG THANK YOU to you for reading, we’re having a BIG giveaway! And, what’s extra special about this giveaway is that everything featured is from ladies that I’ve had the pleasure of meeting solely because of this blog! Had I not launched the site, I wouldn’t have come in to contact with these fabulous gals and their fun products!!

    Well, I already liked Pink Bow Bath Boutique on Facebook (which is where I heard about this giveaway), but I didn’t know they had a Twitter account, so I just followed them! I currently can’t get enough of their Lemon Buttercream Cupcakes. It tastes good enough to eat!

    By the way, I’ve been hosting a giveaway of my own throughout September, if any TV fans want to hop over to my blog before it ends! Up for grabs is a season one DVD set of Castle or an Amazon gift card!

  2. Emerald says

    On the website, I like them all, but my favorites are “Ruby’s Crazy Floral” and “Asian Inspired” (bec. I’m Asian, and I’m inspired. *winks*)

  3. Emerald says

    I already like Pink Bow Bath Boutique. 🙂 But here are the products I want to try:

    Body Whip in bakery scents—especially anything with coconut, pumpkin, honey I washed the kids—holiday fragrances (minus anything apple), and some of the tropical fragrances.

    Also the perfumes and body room sprays. I’d love to try the body room sprays in citrus and bakery scents.

  4. Emerald says

    The colors I think would look really cute (on me! lol) are black, grey, yellow, and white (white is my favorite color, so of course I had to say that one!)

    BUT….I absolutely love her Family Forever board. Isn’t that the cutest thing EVER?!

  5. Emerald says

    As for the business card holder….I absolutely love the one pictured here. It’s my personal taste. I’d want a wallet, makeup bag, and all sorts of stuff designed just like the one above.

  6. Susan says

    I love the whipped body frosting from Pink Bow Bath Boutique! Every scent I’ve tried has been fantastic! I also am following PBBB on Twitter and Facebook.

  7. Ann S. says

    I love the basic black vintage rose wrap because I wear a ton of black. And… I liked Vintage Rose on Twitter and am now a follower. Thanks!

  8. Ann S. says

    I love Pink Bow Bath Boutique’s facial care line. I could use any/all of those beautiful things. And I like Pink Box on Twitter, thank you! 🙂

  9. Ann S. says

    I love anything black and blue so that would be great for a business card holder and I follow Pink Cake on Twitter. Thanks!

  10. Ann S. says

    I am following Sweet Rose Studio on Twitter now, thanks! And I would want a printables pack for my son’s 4th birthday coming up in April. He likes so many things now it would be hard to choose from dinosaurs, pirates, cars, etc.

  11. Ann S. says

    I liked all of the above pages on Twitter and am following them now. I am also a friend on Google and liked on Facebook of Mom Endeavors. Love ya! Thanks!

  12. Dara Rosenberg says

    I am sooo in love with anything black and white with a pop of color. The zebra print and black/cream damask are dreamy. The boring/functional side of me says… pick the one with the black roses… but the sassy side says go with the dusty lime!

  13. Dara Rosenberg says

    I love the idea of the Pink Bow clay soaps. which you can use as a facial mask… It’s that spa touch that always seems to be missing from my facal cleansing regimine. Also, I’ was intrigued with the coca coconut facial cleanser. Anything exfoliating makes me happy!

  14. Dara Rosenberg says

    Oooooh to have a buisiness card holder! Right now I’m working at a school whose colors are Navy and Silver. I’d be most excited to have one more along the lines of Royal Black and Silver. So pretty!

  15. Dara Rosenberg says

    So hard to decide what to have for birthday party decorations! I’m an avid Harry Potter fan, so that would be EPIC. But never could I have a theme of my fave Alan Rickman… That might be both awesome and hilarious for an adult party. :o)

  16. Dara Rosenberg says

    I’ve always been a fan of Mom Endeavors…. and am now a fan of the rest! Yay Facebook! You are so loved Momma!

  17. Heather Browning says

    I follow on fb pink bow bath boutique and just ADORE all things cupcake! The cupcake body butter is the best ever! What a great shop!!!

  18. Julie says

    I am crazy about handmade soaps and I would love to try Brown Sugar Butter Cream Crunch Cake Goat’s Milk Bar-sounds like pure decadence:)

  19. Julie says

    Since I don’t live in AZ (sigh) I would love to get a Sweet Rose Studio printables pack for my son’s Birthday. He is turning 1 in December:)))

  20. Jenna says

    Happy Blogiversary! 🙂 I’m most interested in Pink Bow Bath Boutique’s whipped body frosting (and the beautiful body butter.. those scents sound amazing!) and I liked them on Facebook.

  21. Alyssa says
