I want a new dining room set!

Momma's Review is giving away a new dining set courtesy of Bob's Discount Furniture, and I totally, totally want it.

This is the giveaway set.

Cute right? and hello, love that folding action! Aren't the benches neat?

This is mine.

Why, yes - those are mauve-tweed waiting room chairs. The whole set was purchased at a thrift store for eighty dollars, back when DH & I were first married. And I had to do some pretty serious sweet-talking to get those chairs. The originals were beyond hideous. I promise you that these large, unwieldy, ugly things are/were a much better alternative.

Still, it's pretty darn functional. Of course, we occasionally find random hardware underneath the table, (but can never figure out the origins), and I promise that boosters just aren't possible on the cushiony chairs. (I really want to pass on the high chair and get a super cool booster, yet another reason why I need the set from Momma's Review!)

You can enter, too, but you have to hope that I win! Okay, you can hope for yourself, too.

Announcing Some Happy Momma


The winner of the O'Joy Recommends: Mother's Day Gift Guide & Giveaway is none other than:

Commentor #21, Amber G! who said: "I would give this gorgeous bracelet to my mommy!"

You know the drill: a reply is required within 24 hours, otherwise a new winner will be drawn; yada, yada, yada.

Thank you all so much for entering my giveaway. I know the folks at iSanctuary.org are stoked to be a part of this, and I am stoked by the amazing participation!

You said lovely things about the Mommas in your life, and lots of you wanted to share with your sisters and/or friends. Also, many of you felt you deserved a special gift for yourselves (and I applaud the notion!)

In that vein, I've decided to give some super-duper free ebooks to my readers. These run the spectrum from funny to inspirational. Recipes, organization, crafts, poetry, and the complete WAHM Masters course, are all included here. Download, one two, three or all. Treats for you.

I'm Dreaming of BlogHer!

This is Sooooooo Cool.


As a momblogger, and a devotee of the blogworld, (btw, DH finds that term beyond hilarious) everything about BlogHer seems so ... so ... wonderful. *sigh*

BlogHer '09, the ultimate conference for women bloggers is taking place in Chicago this July, from the 23rd through the 25th. With lectures like "Leadership: What is "Pro-Woman" in a Post-Palin World?" and "MommyBlogging: “Balance” is a Big, Fat, Lying, McLiar LIE for Moms who Blog (and the rest of us too)" I really, really want to be there.


Don't you? Well, there is one way to get there for free. (No really. Airfare, hotel, conference tickets, the works!) JVC, as a promotion for their new Everio line of camcorders wants to send some lucky person to BlogHer '09, along with a brand new JVC Everio Camcorder!
The super slim camera comes in three different styles, the G, S & HD series, and each has their own special options, like dual slot memory or jewel-like color choices.

It could be me. OR it could be you! Just go to the JVC BlogHer Sweepstakes and tell them why you need one of their snazzy new cameras. You'd better believe that I did.
