Mother’s Day Giveaway


Happy Mother's Day!


I just can’t get it together. As much as I try things are popping up left and right preventing me from getting this giveaway going. I wanted to have some grand celebration for Mother’s Day but it’s not happening. I might be procrastinating a bit because Sunday is not only Mother’s Day it is my whopping 40th birthday. The big 4 0 is happening on Mother’s Day this year and so maybe, just maybe I’m putting off this post because the big 4 0 is staring me in the face. I know its just a number. It doesn’t define who I am, what I’m about or anything else. It’s just that I’m going to be FORTY! Forty seemed so old when I was in my twenties. Now that it’s just a few days away I’ve been evaluating my health, my mind and my space in life and I’m NOT old. I don’t feel old and I certainly don’t act old. 🙂  40 is the new 30, right? Right!

So without further ado and without some grand feel good Mother’s Day story and celebration I present you with a pretty sweet giveaway to win for either yourself or to gift to a wonderful mom in your life.

  2. Happy Birthday & Mother’s Day! 5 years ago I had my youngest baby the day before Mother’s Day. It was super sweet to have my other two kids bring me presents in the hospital while I was holding our brand new baby!

  3. I have always enjoyed going to church with my mom on Mother’s day because all of the ladies got a flower, whether they were a mother or not. It was a celebration of femininity and womanhood.

    I’m super excited about this giveaway & this Mother’s Day! We just got back from a 4 month roadtrip & this weekend I get to go on my own adventure without the little in tow! I love taking him hiking & climbing but excited might be an understatement about my solo adventure time. Hope you have a fantastic birthday!

  5. Happy Birthday and Mother’s Day to you! And yes 40 IS the new 30! My favorite Mother’s Day memories are working with my mom at the same grocery store. Every year I would pick Lilacs from the bush in her yard and surprise her with a big vase of them and a small gift in her office. Mom doesn’t want/need gifts but she was always surprised and felt loved.

  6. Happy birthday and mothers’s day! What a great give away!

  7. Looks like a great giveaway! So perfect for us outdoorsy moms 🙂

    My favorite Mother’s Day memory was from last years Mother’s Day….we biked as a family
    most of he day. We stopped at a little gourmet pizza shop and ended up down on the river bed playing in the rocks and mud. My two boys just ran and giggled all day completely dirty head to toe and it made me feel complete. 🙂

  9. Have a wonderful Birthday and Mother’s day!! One of my favorite mother’s days was when Hubby rented a cabin at Ricketts Glenn and we hiked the Falls Trail with the kiddos. It was an amazing weekend outdoors!

  10. happy happy birthday! Just this week I was covering that water bottle in Target because I love the Colorado. We’re FINALLY Moab/bound for Mother’s Day. Have a happy one!

  11. Leslie Allred says

    Last year. On mothers day I was pregnant and watching my two boys play, my life felt rich.

  12. Andrea T says

    I always loved when we would go out to eat at A&W for Mother’s Day! Such a treat for ALL of us!

  13. Just love spending time with family

  14. Emily Border says

    As a child I remember the mother’s day we bought my mom a new bicycle. She was so elated that she hopped on that bike in her purple church dress and rode off down the road. It was the best feeling – gifting her something she loved to show her how much she is loved and appreciated!

  15. Elyse Hawks says

    Great contest! Thanks for thinking of moms. ❤️ Love so many of these companies and their products already! Excited to see about the new ones!

  16. Kristen M says

    Happy Birthday! I’m one year behind you in turning 40. I sort of feel like it is my coming of age as these last few years of being 30 have been filled with adventures and trying new things.

    My oldest was born a day before Mothers Day – easily my best Mothers’ Day memory. 🙂

  17. MoHoHo!
    Numbers are numbers they come they go, sure they’re always counting up but as in life, always forward never back. I feel you, I hear you, I precede you, and it ain’t bad. 😉
    Tomorrow is a new day, new week and new decade but it’s also conveniently all about you and your amazing role as mom, mommy and mother.

    You rock, you inspire and you lead. Keep on keepin’ on with your chin still off your chest and your shoulders still back.


  18. Emily N says

    Happy Mother’s Day!!!

  19. Happy birthday and happy mother’s day! One of my favorite memories was telling my family I was pregnant with Zack on mother’s day. A great time to announce I was going to be a mommy! Now he is 11, where does that time go!?

  20. Dandi D says

    My favorite Mother’s Day memory was being pregnant with my son on mother’s day.

  21. Happy 40th Birthday!! : ) Age is only a number. You look great!

  22. My favorite memory was spending my first Mother’s Day as a new mom when my son was born.

  23. I’ll be honest and say that each year past 39 has been getting rougher for me to accept because, like you, I don’t feel or act that old but the numbers don’t lie. It is most glaring when I’m chatting with other mothers who are still in their twenties and early thirties with kids the same ages. But I try to let it be a passing thought and continue being young and active with my kids! HBD and HMD!

  24. Les Johnson says

    My favorite Mother’s Day memory was when my daughter (with the help of her daddy) got me a spa gift certificate as a gift. I spent the day in the spa before Mother’s Day and then was able to spend precious time with my family on Mother’s Day.

  25. Thank you!
