And now, in local news…

Wondering what my prize package is? Well wonder no more! I’ve got 2 great prizes especially for the preggie mom-to-be!

Prize #1: Something to help you stay healthy and fit! It’s a set of Knocked-Up Fitness DVDs {value: $36.99.}

Knocked-Up Fitness, created by Master Pilate Instructor and Core specialist, Erica Ziel, targets the sassy, modern mom who wants to maintain her fitness routine while preparing her body for labor, delivery and recovery. The videos address warm-up, core, and total body conditioning needs gently and effectively. Perfect for the expectant mom who wants to feel good during every stage of pregnancy! To learn more, visit the Knocked-Up Fitness website, or see my full review here.

Prize #2: Something soft, pretty and comfy just for mama!

This prize, sponsored by A Mother’s Boutique (one of my very favorite online shops!), is an Annee Matthew nightgown in the Violet Dreams print, available in sizes XS-3X {Value: $69.00} This is a very special “sneak peek” for my readers, because these nightgowns haven’t even arrived yet at A Mother’s Boutique, but they are on their way! I’m super excited to provide a review, too, just as soon as our little lady is born (stay tuned for late February!) I think this nightie will be just perfect for the hospital!

As you can see from the photo, this gown can be worn during any stage of pregnancy, and beyond through the nursing period. It’s not too light, and not too heavy, so comfort is a guarantee. Be sure to stop by A Mother’s Boutique to see all the new Annee Matthew arrivals, coming soon, and check out their blog for current mommy news. And did you know that A Mother’s Boutique offers a virtual bra-fitting service? After the challenges I had with my first postpartum nursing bras, I’m really looking forward to a good fitting from the experts! I’m definitely going to try it out…and report back to you, of course! :)

So, are you excited? One mama is going to win both of these prizes, with a combined value of over $100.00! That sounds like some good pampering to me! Entry period will be open through 2/1, so get all your extra entries in, and visit the other blogs on the linky for more great preggie prizes. Good luck!

Non-traditional holiday cards: What do you send?

My day job is in retails, so there is a lot of talk about holiday greetings this time of year. What exactly do we say to customers when they shop in our stores? The answer differs from company to company, but it is something I think about in my personal life, too.

Because we have friends and family that celebrate so many different holidays, we always send out very holiday-neutral cards in December. Each year, I browse the holiday selection at Shutterfly and I find more Holiday Cards than I could possibly imagine. Last year, I chose an autumn design and added photos of our boy playing in piles of leaves. But this year, I’m not sure. From religious, scripture-based cards to ones that just say “Happy EVERYTHING!”, Shutterfly has something for every card-sender’s style. Traditional, modern, funky – you name it, they’ve got it, and they add new ones each year.
