WHEN BLOGGING GETS TOUGH


inspiration and goals
 

I want to be transparent with you all. That’s what M&W is all about. And, in all honesty, I haven’t be inspired lately. It could be for a lot of reasons, but.. I think the number one reason is:
 
I want so much more for Mommie and Wee.
 
I see the potential this blog has, but I feel that I am not giving you guys my all. I would really like to devote more time to this little chunk of myself that I’ve placed on a pretty cyber platter, but work takes up more time than I would like.
 
Excuses.. I know.
 
But, I’m being transparent, remember?

I read this post (by Oak and Oats) and stalked this blog (by Meg Biram, obsessed!). Now, I’m inspired! Inspired to create what I want Mommie and Wee to be!!
 
But, that calls for serious decisions.

 

How do you deal? Have you been inspired/de-spired lately? What did you do to overcome the hump? Advice???

 

I guess this is really a time where I need to get in touch with the man upstairs. But, I’d love to hear what you have to say as well. Consider this an open forum.
 
P.S. I’ve got some ideas roaming around in my brain that will just be awesome to bring to life! I would like to make that happen, and I hope you guys will stay on board along the way! Happy Friday. Kisses!
 
With Love, M&W

A CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE… FOR YOU! WE ALL KNOW IT GET’S CRAZY OUTCHEA.


christmas wishlist
 

Wooooo-wee! All this Christmas shopping, gift making, and online searching has got be exhausted! But, I have my ‘go-to- items to keep me going!
 
This Christmas elf isn’t slowing down anytime soon. :)
 
Christina Aguilera Christmas album. Christmas is never Christmas without this album! I promise you I jam out to every song on this CD, even though it’s like a bajillion years old.
 
Witty Christmas mugs. We all know I’m obsessed with tea. Like, it’s kind of ridiculous how often I drink the stuff. And, that definitely doesn’t stop during the holiday season. Tea 2, 3, or 7 times a day, that’s how I like it.
 
Cutie patottie pencils. For marking off my list. Gift giving isn’t as fun without lists.
 
Classic Christmas movies. I LIVE for these movies. Watching ABC Family 25 days of Christmas is my most favoritest thing ever in life!
 
Eggnoggggg! No explanation needed. Vanilla Spice Southern Comfort Nogg is the way to go.

 

What do you do to get through the craziness of the holiday season?

 

Another way that I beat the crazies is by online shopping. Like, what did people do before there was internet? Because waiting in all these lines at the mall is NOT what it is!
 
My latest lush is ManCrates! They deliver gift baskets perfect for the guys in your life. And get this, they are shipped in a crate! How cool looking is that gonna be sitting under my Christmas tree this year?! Um, yeahhh! I can’t wait to get this one in the mail.. and it’s not even for me!
 
Happy gift shopping, boo! With Love, M&W.

MONDAY MOTIVATION. BECAUSE WE ALL HATE MONDAYS…

positive mind
 

This weekend was great! I got to spend a lot of time with family, which I always love. AND I actually got to go out for the first time in life (well… life after babies) so that was awesome.
 
But, it’s Monday. And, Monday always calls for a little motivation.

EASIEST GIVEAWAY, LIKE EVER… FOR AN IPAD!!


ipad giveaway
 

I’m telling you, I’m pretty jealous I can’t win this iPad for myself!
 
I’ve teamed up with Baby’s Brilliant (via VoiceBoks) and brought you guys the easiest giveaway ever, just in time for Christmas!! So let me give you a little background check on Baby’s Brilliant.
 
Founder, Ulli Coulter, was getting frustrated with the educational products available today for little ones. Either they were overstimulating or just under-educational (Yeah, I just made that up). She took things into her own hands and created Baby’s Brilliant! <– that’s my kind of woman! Now, she has partnered with Apple to have tons of educational information available for free in the app store. Anywhere, anytime, Baby’s Brilliant is there!
 
Gotta love it!
 
This year, for Christmas, Baby’s Brilliant is giving back! 1) They are creating read-along books for families in the military. Every child should have this bonding time with their parent, even if they can’t be home every day to read to them. LOVEEE. 2) They are donating 10% of proceeds to the St. Judes Chilren’s Research Hospital!! 3) They are giving away an iPad!!!
 
When they give back, they give back in a major way! How could I not be a part of this wonderful Christmas giveaway?!
