I have finally moved to for my blog. All the posts from this blog plus more to come can be found at my new location

Please pardon the mess over there right now as I am still transferring content. The About Me section and other pages are not complete. Although it is a work in progress I must say I am very excited about it. The whole blog has changed not only to a new domain but new look as well. I'm loving it!

My direction will continue to be the same, blogging about life in general. My focus is on climbing the ladder to success, not only in business but in life as well. I hope all you wonderful readers will follow me over. Come visit me and show me some comment love over at the new location. Tell me what you think of the new design. Also don't forget to sign up for the new RSS feed over there too.

Kind of sad that this is my last post on blogger. No more Blogging Momma, now to make my stand as MommaDJane.

Plantronics Bluetooth Giveaway

Below you can view my vlog review of the Plantronics 925 Bluetooth Headset. Sorry that I don't sound like myself, catching this darn cold the kids have had. As I type this post I am losing my voice even more.

Don't you just love it? It is the perfect size, great compact carrying case that doubles as a charger and sleek design. I needed a bluetooth headset because I am very bad about talking on the phone while driving. Not sure about other states but within my area it is against the law to drive in school zones while talking on the phone. My speaker phone option gets used a lot and the person on the other end can never truly hear me well.

Now for the giveaway! As you saw in the video I am giving away a complete Plantronics 925 Bluetooth Headset sealed in box brand new. The winner will receive the one shown in the vlog {pink in color}.

To enter the giveaway leave a comment telling me how you handle your phone when driving... Are you a straight-laced driver who goes by the book and doesn't use your mobile when operating a vehicle? Do you only talk on the phone using a headset and/or speaker phone? Or are you a dare devil who has text messaged, checked emails and maybe even conducted conference calls while cruising down the highway? Come on be honest... whose judging?!

Mom It Forward Contest

Mom It Forward, Giveaway, Contest
For the Mom It Forward Contest to win the HP All-in-one Printer I want to tell you a little about my daughter. Tapanga is 11 years old and has a heart of gold. Her helpful attitude probably started at around age five when she saw the commercial on TV telling everyone to collect the pink yogurt labels to help Breast Cancer Awareness. She would wash the labels and keep them in a ziplock bag for me to mail in. It all stemmed from there... Once starting school she began taking part in annual jump rope for heart and tries to raise funds for just about every charity she is introduced to. Below are a few photos from this past year of her giving back to the community, helping others and just being herself.

A Little 2 Sassy Blog Tour ~ Giveaway

{Welcome to Day One of A Little 2 Sassy's blog tour}

As you know I just love to support handmade products and I know the true meaning of appreciation for a work at home mom. All that being said makes this post even more exciting to introduce Kristina to you, the owner of A Little 2 Sassy. Kristina is a wife and mother of three. Due to unfortunate events during her childhood she lost her mother and was raised by her grandparents. Kristina's grandmother was always working on crafts and of course she was right by her grandmother's side learning along the way. Now that Kristina has become a mother, her daughter is the inspiration behind her bow making. The creation of A Little 2 Sassy has given her a chance to put her wonderful skills to work. Each item that Kristina hand makes for her customers is filled with love and pride.

First I must point out that I just love the flip flops! How cute are those? And... she makes them in adult size as well. Oh yes I would wear matching flip flops with my Gabby girl in a heart beat!

Next shows the pony o's hair piece. Those are perfect for the little older girl who doesn't want hair bows in her hair any longer. I must admit that although I am able to sneak in a hair bow every so often, these are Gab's favorite.

The third photo shows one of my personal favorites. I just love the curly ribbon hair bows. Plus I just adore the button in the center. What a great finishing touch!

Now for the giveaway! I have been given the opportunity to giveaway a $25 gift certificate good towards any hair bows or flip flops you find at A Little 2 Sassy.

Blissful Wardrobe

When I decided I was going to Nashville for the BlissDom '09 Conference I knew I was going to need new clothes. I read the schedule and saw there were two cocktail parties going on plus a pajama party. Considering I'm a single mom who doesn't get out much and my sleep wear usually consist of an over sized t-shirt I heard the mall calling my name. Then I realized what a great opportunity to wear clothing from sponsors during the event and help promote some businesses I love.

First up I have the gorgeous dress I wore to Friday night's cocktail party. This dress was handmade out of a satin-type material and was stunning. When I received the dress in the mail from Cowgirl Heaven, an etsy shop, I was impressed! I couldn't believe that it was handmade. Very professional work and if I must say so myself I thought it looked amazing on. I received many compliments and it sure felt good knowing I was prompting a work at home mom of handmade items.

Next is the customized shirt I got to wear to the Friday night pajama party. I was very excited to be the one wearing the original BlissDom '09 sparkle tee made by Sassy Sparkle, just for me! I am so excited about being given the opportunity to post about this shirt that she also offered me a discount code to share with my readers. If you order anything from her site between now and March 14, '09 and use the code bliss then you will get 10% off your total.

Last but definitely not least here I am sporting my Joe's Jeans. I just LOVED my Joe's Jeans. The denim material was so soft and they were extremely comfy. I wrote a past post announcing their special they have going on for Valentine's Day where you can buy one pair and get second half off. How great is that? Plus it's pretty funny how I finally got the correct size. I will have to admit though, if you are short like me, you better get the petite size otherwise you will have to get them altered. I had about six inches cut off the bottom.

Each one of these articles of clothing made me feel alive and fun while at BlissDom '09. Not only did I feel great in the clothing, get lots of compliments but I was comfortable as well. You just can't beat that!
