Mother's Day GIVEAWAY: One night stay at Wyndham Grand Downtown Pittsburgh!

Happy Mother's Day!
Moms give selflessly of themselves every day.  Even on "special days", there are still dishes to clean, children to feed, toys to be picked up, laundry to be done...and the list goes on.
And on Mother's Day we are going to relish the extra squeezes, the interesting shaped pancakes that arrive to our bedside, and the special plans with those who we love most of all!
But next week, I am going to drawing a special winner's name for a little oasis from the demands that call to us each day.
I believe we as moms have the best job in.the.world.
But I also believe, to be the best at that job that we need those moments (hours, days!!) to regroup, refresh, & recharge.
And so for my Mother's Day gift to you all, I wanted to create that opportunity (I only wish you all could win!)
The Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown has very generously offered a one night's stay for a mom and her guest (if you so choose)!
If you've driven past downtown during the last year, you may have noticed that what was the Hilton has now changed to the Wyndham Grand.

The Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown Hotel is located where Pittsburgh's famous three rivers meet and where the energy is alive. Here you'll not only enjoy 24 floors with stunning river or city views, but you'll also be close to all our great city has to offer. Inside our hotel you'll find a stylish and inviting lobby that's decorated with soothing earth tones and welcoming contemporary furniture. It's the ideal place to gather with friends or plan a day of fun. Floor to ceiling windows throughout the hotel guarantee you won't miss the beauty of the glistening rivers, our vibrant city, or lovely Point State Park that's just across the street.
*
Go here to enter this fabulous 24 hour getaway!

{Open for entries until Thursday, May17th at 7pm. }

Good Luck!

Abe's Market

If you like the idea of shopping right from home and knowing you'll be getting great natural products, then you must check out Abe's Market.
Abe's Market is the online marketplace for great natural products.  They connect buyers seeking amazing natural products with the people who make them. There's no need to prowl the Internet for a broader natural product selection than can be found at your local natural market. At Abe's Market, you can get all your natural product buying done in one place.
Too often today, we buy products without knowing the origin of the products. At Abe's Market you can discover fantastic natural products while having the unique opportunity to learn the story behind them – straight from the products' creators. This valuable background goes beyond what can be found on a label. Who makes the product? What's in it? Where is it made? How? You can even chat directly with sellers to ask specific questions so you know that you can trust and be comfortable with the products you bring into your home.

Abe's Market. We want you to feel good about your goods.
And be sure to check out Abe's Natural Baby Catalog (where you can even build a registry)!

Just Between Friends is a Shopper's Dream!
Just Between Friends Sales events are a savvy shopper's dream!
These are not retail stores but rather savings extravaganzas--shopping events that happen usually twice a year per location. At these events, consignors bring their new and gently-used children's and maternity merchandise to sell. Shoppers can then browse and purchase these items at great savings, usually far below retail prices.
Only the Best Items at Great Savings!
Just Between Friends hosts these events in clean, well-organized venues where shoppers can find all they need for their family at substantial savings--usually 50 to 90% off retail prices! Merchandise is inspected to insure only high quality items will be sold. At a typical Just Between Friends event, you can find clothing, toys, baby equipment, strollers, high chairs, cribs, joggers, nursery gear, maternity wear, baby carriers, play yards, play sets, coats, shoes...well, you can see the list of items just goes on and on! And so do the savings!

You can make money too! Head here to read more about selling with JBF.
