good MOMday Morning 

The June MOMday Morning giveaway is over and  Comments are closed. We will announce the winner by Wednesday! Thank you to everyone who entered!

Good MOMday Morning! 

Welcome to MOMday Morning June!

So, here you are at the party but not sure what we are celebrating? What is MOMday Morning?

The 1st MOMday (Monday) of each month  B.Y.O.G, Eli's Lids & Blessed Nest will be hosting a giveaway.

Last month our friend Kara- Noel hosted the launch of MOMday Morning! It was a wonderful party. If you missed it, don't worry, we celebrate every Month!

Please take a minute to party with us and see what we are all about. Kara-Noel is too cute so go ahead...take a peek!


Now, meet some of our friends at the party!

This is a big party. There are a lot of people to get to know and gifts to share, so you'll be glad you stayed until the end!

As we've said before, we love the blogging community! Throughout the years, Mom bloggers have loved, nurtured and supported us. We love telling you who has impacted us and why you need to get to know them too!

Our MOMblogger in the spotlight:

Meet Shannon from Rocks In My Dryer

Heather and Shannon are friends in real life and I hope to have the honor and joy of meeting her one day too! I've enjoyed Shannon's blog for years.

Shannon has taken a bit of a break from regular blogging, but it's not hard to spend hours laughing and crying through her archives (we've both done it!). Read about all of the plates she has a -spinnin' and go tell her you need to hear more from the "creaky old blogger who may not write nearly as often as she used to." (Her words, not mine) yeh, whatever Shannon. We need all the wisdom and humor we can get from amazing women like you!

 Community in the spotlight:

It's Father's Day month so we had to tell you about one of our favorite dad bloggers! Meet Graham at Tumblon! Heather met Graham through one of her NYC groups, and he has become a great friend to both of us (& to Blessed Nest!).

Tumblon helps parents understand and nurture their children's growth by informing and inspiring them to engage in the joys of parenting. It's such an extraordinary concept, you just have to check it out!


 It's not a party without gifts and party favors, right?

1 person will win this gift package!

Commissioned Art, Nesting Pillow & CASH! (cha ching!)

WOW, meet this amazing dad! Joshua Sierk. He's a musician who draws, paints & makes stuff. And you guessed it, he's Heather's friend...

and he brought the best gift to the party! He is giving YOU a chance to win an original piece of art, commissioned just for MOMday Morning! (you may remember the Mother's Day gift that Heather had Joshua make for me, see it here)

"May your nest be warm and blessed."


Another gift for YOU! Enter to win a  Nesting Pillow by



along with $75.00 CASH


Heathers niece, Gracie has amazing parties. At 6 years old, she is my daughter's inspiration for looking outside of herself during her special celebrations! Every year for her birthday, Gracie chooses a charity and asks friends and family to give a donation that Gracie then gets to give to the cause she loves. We hope you will be inspired by Gracie's spirit of generosity and creativity as you check out this great cause...

MOMday cause~ The Cool People Care Shoppe

"The Cool People Care Shoppe sells merchandise that makes the world a better place. Whether it's the unabashedly positive message that Cool People Care or our latest "We Are Nashville" line that raises funds for flood victims in Middle Tennessee, we aim to clothe you for a Lifestyle of Caring."

When my dad was alive I would make him a funny card and the gift would be a trip to the movies with me!!
For my husband, I always remind him what a great daddy he is!

On Father's Day my husband gets to choose what we do and where we eat. Knowing him, we'll likely be going to the best Fish and Chips shop in the US, so I'm not complaining :)

I like that has featured blogs that deliver words of wisdom from a parent who's been there and done that.

Thankfully I still have my dad. We're Chicagoans, so he is going to be the recipient of a Ozzie Guillen bobble head and brunch at the Kit Kat Lounge where there are phenomenal female impersonators! At 79, we're trying to keep things spiced it up for dad - mom thinks its a hoot!

Aw, shucks, you made my day. Thanks!

My husband has his special day all planned. He's taking both grandsons to Arlington Park for the very first time to watch the horse races. I may tag along to help with potty breaks LOL

On Father's Day, I will let my husband sleep in AND make him a decadent breakfast, something he doesn't get on a regular basis :) And something he appreciates hugely.

June 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle

My hubby gets to spend as much time with his family, I mean, with his motorcycle as he wishes on Father's Day. Really, all day if he wants =) He loves to tinker! (Is that a PC motorcycle-wife kinda word?)

On, I love the Grammar Does Matter post! I agree! GRAMMAR DOES MATTER! And it's so true that usually kids are just repeating what they've heard us say... gotta watch my words!

My husband is amazing, and his top priority is making sure that we are all happy and well- especially with baby number three on the way. The plan is to take the day to do all of his favorite things, and make all of his favorite things to let him know how much we all love him.
