My first Giveaway!!!!

You read that right.

I have a real giveaway.

A couple of weeks ago an college friend of mine, Susan mentioned on her blog about an ebook from Motivated Moms that has really helped her to clean and organize her home.

Now you should know that Susan has a two year old and 9 month old in New York City.

In a two bedroom apartment.

Think about that for a minute.

I think we need a moment of silence for her right now.

I figured that this ebook could help Susan out, it could help me out too.

In TN I use to have a daily schedule to help me clean the house.

Mondays were laundry days.

Tuesdays were bathrooms.

And so on and so on.

Since moving here I am just overwhelmed with everything that needs to be done that really only the kitchen and den would get cleaned due to the fact we are in those rooms the most.

So I bought the ebook from Motivated moms and it has really helped me.

On Sunday nights I print out the list for the upcoming week and stick it on the fridge.

Each day is detailed out with what to do and a box to check off when you are done.

For example today I had to change hand towels in bathrooms, clean top shelf of refrigerator, vacuum main/public rooms or 1st floor, clean toilets, and replenish stock of toilet paper in bathrooms.

Just to name a few of the things.

Still to this day I get such a deep satisfaction with checking off a "to-do" on my list.

There have been a couple of days that I haven't been able to get to everything on my list so the next day I know exactly what I need to do.

Now I am not here to say that my house is now perfect but I definitely feel that I have much more of a handle on it.

So I thought that all my great friend and family that read this blog could also benefit from this. I emailed Deann from Motivated Mom to see if she would be interested in doing a giveaway, and she said yes!

So someone will be able to win one of Motivated Moms products!

So click here and pick look over the products Deann has to offer and she what would work best for you.

You will get a calendar for the rest of the year. Deann is working on the 2010 calendar right now and plans to have it done in October.

To win you just need to leave a comment with your email address so I can get back in contact with you.

I will draw the name of the winner on Friday night around 7pm.

Good Luck!!

Woohoo! Did I hear you say you are giving away a maid to clean my house all year? That's awesome Katie (just kidding :) Sign me up, woman! The only other thing I have won on a blog is a book called, "Raising Adopted Children." Andrew was confused as he saw Griffin come out of me. Anyway, yippee! Put my name in the hat!

I don't know you - and honestly don't even know how I came across your blog - but have been checking in on your family for quite a while. Your boys are SOOOO cute...mine is 18 months old, so I guess your "adventures" give me a glimpse of what is to come. =)
