Now the World Don't Move to the Beat of Just One Drum

PBN has started a new monthly feature called Different Kinds of Parents. The first installment went live today, and it's pretty snazzy. For the kick off, the gals interviewed Jennifer Chrisler, executive director of Family Pride - the national non-profit organization committed to securing family equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer parents, guardians, and allies. Definitely go and check it out!

A New Point of Vue

Just a quick update! If you were at all interested in my review of the Saturn Vue Hybrid, check out the PBN mid-campaign round-up, where lots of people say stuff!

Oh My Heck!

The fine folks over at the Parent Bloggers Network have done it again! They are having another big fun Blog Blast, but this time, the potential rewards are off the flippin' charts! On Friday June 8th, write a post on the following theme: “Where Does My Time Go?” Then send your link in an email to One lucky participant will be drawn at random to win a two day pass to BlogHer '07! That's over $200 bucks of stuff, plus you might get the chance to rub elbows with some super cool bloggers, and maybe even learn some stuff! Click here for the total rundown!

I am sad and weepy because I cannot go to BlogHer this year due the event being scheduled only a wee bit before my due date. I can't have my uterus exploding all over Chicago, right? But that doesn't mean that you shouldn't go! And not have to pay for it! Do it for me, won't you?

Becaues We All Like Free Stuff, Even if You Never Had a Baby Come Out of Your Vagina

Hey Inter-Peeps! There are approximately seven-hundred and forty-two contests going on in honor of Mother's Day (and anniversaries and what not) this week. And guess what? You don't even have to be a mother to win anything! I'm all for equal oppertunity contests, and loads of cool, free stuff. So to make your prize winning chances even better, I've assembled a list of all current give-aways that I am aware of for your clicking pleasure. Read on!

The delightfully talented (she just had her first gallery show!) and amazingly funny Pioneer Woman is having a spectacular 'Give that photo a name' contest. The prize? A bomb-ass camera. Hurry on this one, though, 'cause you only have until 7pm pacific time today to enter!

Real Mom Truths is having a fun contest with another awesome prize. You might recall my submission to the Real Mom's page from a few months ago. Just click on over and follow the steps to win a 4G iPod/Chocolate Gift Set worth $215, plus a plug on the Real Mom Truths home page.

Want something easier? Click over to Light Iris, which is launching this weekend. All you have to do is fill out a simple sweepstakes entry form and you are done! No essays or creative thinking required! Prize? Oh just $3000 in gift cards. It's the give that keeps on buying!

Design Mom is having an awesome Giveaway-A-Day from May 7th (today) until May 11th. All you have to do is leave a comment! Easy as pie!

Feeling generous? Head over to Helzberg Diamonds to nominate a mom you know and love to win the Mom's Month Off Sweepstakes. If you love me, you'll put my name in the Nominee's Information field.

Still yearning for more? Well, finally, my buddies over at the Parent Bloggers Network are hosting a Blog Blast this friday, May 11th, that ties in with the Light Iras launch. Julie sums it up nicely:

On Friday, May 11, write a post about what makes you a mother - what’s that personal defining quality of motherhood for you (whether you’re referring to yourself, your spouse or partner, or your own mother) - and send your readers back to Light Iris to enter the sweeps. Then e-mail us at with a link to your post, and you’ll be entered to win!

So there you have it. I've done the hard part for you. Now all you have to do is click click click your way to a house full of goodies. If that doesn't make me worthy of a nomination for the Mom's Month Off contest, I don't know what does!

Good luck!
