Happy MOMday Morning May โ€“ enter to win cash & a Nesting Pillow!

This giveaway is now closed. We will post the winner later tonight! Thanks to all who entered.

 

We hope your Mother's Day was wonderful...Now let the pampering continue here at MOMday Morning!


Where have we been? Well, our lives (all of our lives) have been a bit crazy! Donna from Blessed Nest is finishing up the home school year with her now kindergartner turning 1st grader and 2nd grader now tuning 3rd grader..yikes! Wasn't it just yesterday when Tabitha was born and I needed a great nursing pillow which birthed the awesome Blessed Nest Nesting Pillow???... (Donna takes a deep breath & keeps writing)

Heather has been training our new and oh so wonderful seamstress at Blessed Nest...Kara-Noel from Eli's Lids had some BIG news back in March ( hint somthing about baby# 4) and Andrea from B.Y.O.G  is keeping up with her two boys and working on growing her fabulous biz all while encouraging her amazing friends like miss Elaini.ous'.

 

Thank you for forgiving us for the absence of MoMday Morning. We hope you understand!

 

Blog of the month for MOMday Morning!

 

Speaking of fabulous friends we would love for you to get to know miss Elaini.ous'  a bit better so we are placing her in the spotlight this MOMday Morning.

 

Andrea at B.Y.O.G met Elaini in 2008 when B.Y.O.G. was in its infancy!

 

This is THEIR story:

 

" Elaini sent an email one day asking if she could order gowns without the usual pregnancy related packaging. The gowns were for a 17 year old girl named Marissa. Marissa was battling cancer and enduring long hospital stays while she received treatment. Elaini wanted her to feel pretty and have something modest to wear. She thought our hospital gowns would do the trick. I thought it was so sweet of Elaini to buy the gowns for her friend but, as it turned out, at the time Elaini had never even met Marissa! She read an article about her in the local newspaper and followed her heart...amazing! I was so touched by her gesture and wanted to help too. We began to converse back and forth about her first visit to see Marissa in the hospital and after that she was kind enough to send updates. (I'm happy to report that it has been almost two years since Marissa's successful bone marrow transplant!)"

 

photo by Christa Taylor photographyWe are excited to be spreading the love......On Sunday May 1st one of Elaini's dreams came true. She launched her blog miss elaini.ous'. Elaini has designed a black dress that she will be wearing for 100 days. She will be modeling it on her blog daily but, it's really not about her or the dress though. It's about orphans in India. Here's an excerpt from her blog...

 

"Orphans in India can’t go to school without a uniform. However, they often don’t have clothes to wear. Growing up surrounded by turmoil, human trafficking, and loss, an education can help these orphans dream about a different life. I have been given so much that I can have “fashion,” while these children struggle to stay clothed. I have to do something. I’m hoping you’ll do it with me.

 

Join us in helping Elaini raise 50,000.00 for the orphans in India. For more details and to donate go here
