Pink Heels


I have always had a weakness for pink. I have always had a weakness for heels (4 inch or higher please, absolutely any color, preferring platform at the moment, size 7.5 or 8 depending on the designer). So when I received the news that PinkHeels.com had chosen to shine their spotlight on ME…I was ecstatic!! It’s one thing for ME to think of myself and my business as interesting, but when SOMEONE ELSE finds you and your business interesting enough to share with others…well, you can say it makes for a good day.

Join Us in the Fight for Preemies

video

I remember the moment I found out I was pregnant with each of my children. It was a moment filled with overwhelming joy and tears of excitement, yet one of worry. It was a worry like no other and one that stayed with me until the day they were born. I wanted my babies to be completely healthy, growing like they should and making it full term. If you are a mother, I know you understand. Therefore, I know you have compassion for mothers whose children do not make it full-term.

Premature birth is the number one killer of newborns and more than half a million babies are born too early each year. Those premature babies who do survive are often disabled for life. So as part of a national effort to save babies from premature birth, the March of Dimes has declared the month of November - Preemie Awareness Month.

What can you do to help? By visiting our website (http://www.pregoplanner.com/) during the month of November and clicking on the Preemie Awareness Month “ChipIn!” button in the bottom right-hand corner, you can donate and support a cause bigger than yourself. You can play a part in saving a precious child’s life and a mother’s heart. At the end of November, 100% of the funds raised will be donated to the March of Dimes.

Not only will contributing to such an amazing cause lift your spirits, but it will also enter you in a drawing to WIN fabulous prizes from our current awesome sponsors. Donate and you could WIN:

A fantastic all weather WooBee blanket (http://www.rainorshinekids.com/) – my most favorite blanket ever!

A FREE session fee and 8x10 with Heather Owens Photography
(http://www.heatherowensphotography.com/) – she just took pictures of my boys and they were so beautiful that they literally left me speechless.

A gift certificate from BabyLegs (http://www.babylegs.com/) – the most sought after children’s accessory in the world!

Completely tax deductible, you will receive the number of chances to win for each dollar that you donate. For example:

$1 = 1 ticket
$5 = 5 tickets
$10 = 10 tickets
$15 = 15 tickets
$20 = 20 tickets

Keep watching as our list of sponsors is expected to grow. Also, I understand that not everyone will be able to donate. However, I (and the unborn lives) would greatly appreciate it if you could help spread the word and pass this on to others.

Thank you in advance!!

P.S.
Please note that PayPal is not associated with the drawing as they do not participate in raffles. If you have questions about donating, please contact me at heather@braelynbountybug.com.

Tossed to the Floorboard

It’s been a very long time since I have tended to the GlaMOMorous World Blog. Poor thing, it has definitely been tossed to the floorboard of the third row seat. And in the famous words of my husband, “Excuses don’t explain and explanations don’t excuse.” However, I must get my ten (not two) cents in. It’s one of those things where business gets to going really great and you become so excessively busy that you loose track of your priorities. Busyness fills your days and soon you’re working until 1:00 am and pushing the envelope of becoming emotionally and physically drained. Then the in-laws visit for a couple of weeks…and before you know it…what started with tenacious drive (that’s for you honey ;o) has driven you to exhaustion.

So after a little break and some daylight savings, I’m getting a fresh start to this wife, mother, cleaning lady, diaper lady, laundry lady, lunch lady, taxi lady, business lady, blog, facebook, twitter, marketing, graphic designer, accountant, sales rep, public relations director thing. And as part of successfully fulfilling all of those positions, I decided that I will definitely feel more tenacious (for you again honey ;o) if I rise earlier in the mornings, shower and get fully dressed with a complete face of make-up and tamed hair. That being said, I have waited for a special occasion to wear this little v-neck purple jewel-toned shirt, but since date nights are few and far between, I decided to get some use out of it and wear it to “the office”. Before my coffee even had a chance to “add a special touch” to my shirt, my 1 year old co-worker had accessorized the left shoulder with snooty and my right shoulder with sticky fingerprints of honeydew melon. (As my mother used to say, “Can’t I keep anything nice around here?!”) Oh, the amazingly and wonderfully dog-tired world of a Work At Home Mompreneur…I wouldn’t trade it for the world ;o)

So, as I dust off the GlaMOMorous World Blog and nurture her back to her original beauty, I hope you’ll enjoy what’s in store. As a part of my 2010 Marketing Plan, the GlaMOMorous World Blog will take a new turn. Praying for its success, I am very excited! Stick around…I hope to make YOU a part of it!
