Merry Mommies Christmas Carnival




I know I haven't been posting that often lately, but I have good reasons. What little computer time I have had lately I've been working on organizing and planning our Merry Mommies Christmas Carnival!

I'm so excited about this. The idea started when a really cool sponsor said they would love to host a giveaway with us. Then another. I got to thinking about the holidays and how as mommies we tend to take on a lot. There is always something to clean, something to bake, and someone to shop for. I personally take on a lot during the holidays (mostly because its fun) and then end up exhausted afterward. So, I wanted to hold a little blog Christmas party for my readers to spoil you all during this season.

The party starts November 16th and ends December 16th. We're kicking it off with some totally awesome giveaways, which will continue through the whole party. I'm also going to host recipe swaps. There will be one for cookies, one for holiday beverages (like punch, hot cocoa, eggnog), and a few others. How will this work? Well, I will make a post with a few of my cookie recipes and then you all are invited to post how ever many cookie recipes you desire on your blog. Then just come back and leave the link to your recipe in the comment section. This was we can all visit each others' blogs and try out new recipes! If you are a member of The Secret Is In The Sauce then you can equate this to their Saturday Sharefest roll call.

I hope you all will spread the word and stop by during our carnival. I posted a button in the sidebar already and anyone who puts it up on their blog before the 16th can leave me a comment here on this post and then get 2 extra entries to all the giveaways they wish to enter. These giveaways are open to anyone in the US or Canada. You won't even have to have a blog to enter.

Here is a sneak peak at a few of the awesome prizes that will be given away during the Merry Mommies Christmas Carnival:


The amazing Mrs. Smith's Diaper Bag


Classic Sleepy Wrap...perfect for babies and toddlers!


A beautiful Blush Topless Undershirt



Thank you to all of our sponsors who will be featured during the carnival!
