Dumb Mom(I say that with complete love) at Parenting by Dummies asked me to guest post for her this week on her Director’s Cut Friday. My topic was “What I don’t Know” or “What I know” and basically I found out that I don’t know much. I mean I know a lot, but what scares me most are these little minions in my care and how I really just don’t know much about them or what will happen as they grow…because the totally annoying awesome thing about parenthood is that just when you think you have it figured out, they totally mess with you. Which is totally unfortunate because I need to get this right before they are teenagers because I am WORRIED about being a mom of teenagers and how to set a good example as I pretty much rocked sucked at being a good teenager. My parents are saints.
So go read my post and give some love over at Dumb Mom’s site…and stay and look around awhile. She is so sweet, even though she tries hard not to be, she is so funny and just so much fun. Oh, and an awesome photographer!
Also, you know this post about Cheerios and the adorable flower marshmallow treats we made? Well, Cheerios loved it and may use it in one of their nationwide banner ads!!! YES FOR REAL. It is posted on their Facebook page along with the other 3 finalists. The one to receive the most votes gets to be on their new ad campaign. AWESOME YES? I think we should win – so you must go vote “like” picture #4(the one of my girls hands making the flowers)! Thank you! So go HERE, click on picture 4 and “like” (you must have a Facebook account to do this – still shocked that some people don’t. How do you all stalk your ex’s?)
If you haven’t noticed on my sidebar – I also am now a weekly contributor at All Things Chic. It is an fabulous lifestyle site that covers fashion, home, family, beauty, decorating, deals and has some amazing giveaways. So add us to your reader and look for my posts! Thank you!
And finally. The post I wrote last Friday was one of the hardest things I have ever written or shared. While I talk about personal things on my blog – there are so many things I do not discuss. Details of relationships – with my parents, sibling, my husband, my ex, or my cat – well okay, I am open about my cats…but you get it. I am a very private person and just don’t put myself out there. I have had major issues with infertility and miscarriages yet have only 1 post in my 700+ posts where I discussed it. Sometimes I wish I could just open up and be totally out there on my blog, and sometimes I blog in private, and sometimes I just never share. Anyway, I don’t know how much more I will share about the topic of eating disorders, or if I will ever mention it again…but what it did was give me comfort that I am not alone, that my story is not unique and that somehow I just want this awful disease to end for everyone. Thank you so much for your amazing comments, love and support.
This year, BlogHer has a new campaign called Own Your Beauty. “Own Your Beauty is a groundbreaking, year-long movement bringing women together to change the conversation about what beauty means.”
I submitted my post to them and it has now been posted on their Facebook page here. I am honored to be a small part of this campaign and am so grateful they shared my story.
Have a great weekend you all. I will be busier than normal – with a new line launch of Matilda Jane and Esther’s fabulous 6th birthday party. I hope to be able to catch my breath long enough to share pictures on Monday before a crazy week of work.
Much Love my Friends…
