The 6 Month Blogiversary!

Yay! I’ve officially kept this blog up for 6 months now. Wow, has it flown by! This month had been the first month I’ve cooled it down a little and stopped posting DAILY! While I still think of enough things to write about EVERYDAY I’m having fun posting when I really feel like it. …Though trust me, I think I’ll be picking up the pace again soon.

For my 6 month Blogiversary I want to bring back something I haven’t done for a couple of months. Mommy Moment of the Month! But I’m going to do it a little differently. For now, instead of nominating others, I want you to submit your best post of the month that is an example of motherhood. You don’t have to be a mom to enter. The winner will get a pretty new button that I’ll be revealing soon, as well as a little feature about your blog! So will you enter? Yes, please do! No specific topic this month except Motherhood! Look back in your archives for something you wrote this month or write something up (or months past if you want this time) that displays a classic “mommy moment” be creative and have fun! Feel free to nominate someone else if you’d rather.

And in true Future Mama style I’m gonna give away something special for any lady! A beautiful tile necklace of your choice from CarrieAnneJone’s Etsy Shop. My personal favorite is this one:
But she also has a really cute one that says “Hot Mama” I’ll definitely have to get one of those one day… If I’m still hot after being a mom that is.

In the comments section just let me know which one you want if you win (or parents with little girls you can choose one of her adorable headbands instead) and I’ll draw a winner via on June 8th.

You get extra entries by letting me know if you:
-Have asked me a question for a Q&A
-Have nominated a post of yours/a friend’s for Mommy Moment of the Month
-You follow my blog

-You have my blog button (now two entries)

-You favor my blog on Technorati
-You Tweet/ Facebook about this contest
-You post about this contest (now two entries)

Happy 6 month blog! 🙂

LLnL says:

Congratulations on your anniversary. I have the same anniversary coming up. So cheers to you for a lovely blog and all the joy and guidance that it brings.

Dominique says:

Happy Aniversary.
Love your blog design 🙂

You rocked the blog world in a short six months, my friend. I’m impressed. This is definitely a reason to celebrate.

I also wanted to mention that I just watched your BlogRollers entry. I must say that I am impressed! When the BlogRollers asked me to be a guest judge, I never thought the decision would be this difficult. However, I have mad respect for anyone who is as driven as you are. Tell me, are you still working as a newscaster?


PS: If you ever want to do another vlog, let me know. We host a regular feature called Chick Chat and are planning a segment on 20-something bloggers this summer. It would be fun to have you join us.

April says:

Congrats on the anniversary. I subscribe to your blog through Google Reader. Here is my favorite “Mommy Moment” post:

Love the Scrabble Tile Necklace with the red and white branch.

TopHat says:

Yakini says:

First and foremost, Happy 6 month blogaversary!!!!!! WOOHOOO!!!!!! 😀

Now on to the contest (lol)

1) My favorite mommy moment was Chase’s first feeding, that I “thought” would go well and then ended up being a disaster that was captured on YouTube for the world to see. Lmao. That was my post “(Mis)Adventures in Eating Solids That was so embarassing! LOL!!!

2) I follow your blog

3) I have your button

Yakini says:

Tweeted about it

Kelly says:

Okay, I have an entry I want to submit…

This is my post for mother’s day.

Vickie says:

Happy Blogiversary!! I like you personal favorite.

I am thinking very hard and I don’t think I have a great mommy post.

Ok so I might be stretching it a little bit. But, the blog post is about a note I got from a little girl at school. So, I am not a mommy yet, but I feel like it everyday to 25 five and six year olds! So, does this count!! LOL I hope so it is a classic “adopted” mommy moment! These are the moments I esp. can’t wait for so innocent yet so sweet and funny!

Spamgirl says:


I would choose the Scrabble Tile Necklace (cherry blosson tree).

Thank you!

Yay for making it 6 months!

I’ll tweet about the contest.
I already subscribe to your feed.

Here’s my most recent mother moment post.

Not exactly reveling in the joys of motherhood, that one, but it’s real.

I like the necklace called Maroon Flowers. But my baby girl could really use a headband thingie. Without one, everyone thinks boy.

Seraphim says:

Congrats on the 6 months!
I follow you on twitter and have added you to my roll as a follower of yours.
I know EXACTLY where you are at in terms of deciding what to do baby wise. I wish you well deciding.
I work with bereaved mommies with a site called “Whispered Support” but I also have my own blog where I blog about motherhood.
The post I’ve nominated is one I did for Mother’s Day honouring all the mommies who are without their babies on that day. Hope you like it.
Because I’m overseas I won’t choose anything but it would be lovely to win an award button to put on my blog. I’ve never been nominated for anything!

I don’t know if it will count because it is not from may…but it’s my favorite that involves my kids 😀

But if it has to be from may…this would have to be the next best thing

Natalie says:

I love the Scrabble Tile Necklace (white and red branch) – its cute!

this is my mommy post:

Natalie says:

I follow you!

Slee says:

I think the red and white tree one is just delightful, but secretly can’t get over the lovliness of the blue and green flowers that looks all paisleyish. if i won, i’d actually rather be surprised!

Slee says:

Ooh, I nominated a mommy moment

Slee says:

I finally figured out the whole adding a button thing (why do they make things difficult with words like gadgets? lol!) and added your button to my blog

Slee says:

i suppose i should say i have your button twice…

Slee says:

i now follow your blog, having just figured that out too. it never ceases to amaze me how different viewing/web surfing on a phone is from a computer! and then at times like this, when i figure something otu the proper way, i’m thankful that i can occasionally get my laptop to sorta function!

Kathi says:

happy blogging anniversary! Yahoo! And congrats on winning the road trip!
I love the same necklace you do!

Ok…I am follower too!

Kathi says:

Joy says:

I’m really loving the Scrabble (retro) necklace!

Joy says:

Here is my own nomination for the Mommy of the Month

Joy says:

OK, so somehow I missed the date on this post when I was reading the RSS feeds. You’ve already picked a winner of Mommy of the Month. But read my post anyways. It might make you want a baby even more.

Christina says:

Like you, I am not a mommy…yet! Since everybody in my life seems to be having a baby, and blogging about it – I started blogging about my “babies”. Here you meet one of them in our daily routine:

Also, I follow you and voted for you…good luck!

Oh my gosh, I just realized I never entered your contest! I just blogged about hearing our fetus’ heartbeat with a regular ol’ stethoscope–that was a pretty cool (future)mama moment for me!

I love all of the necklaces on CarrieAnneJone’s Etsy Shop, but I think my favorite is the one that says Soul Mate. Reminds me of my hubby! 🙂

For extra entries, I did the following:

I follow your blog

I have your button (on both of my blogs 🙂

I subscribe to your blog

I tweeted (kjfilkins)

I’m getting ready to post about it now

I’m too scatterbrained right now to do anything else!
