FREE Advertising oportunity!

As some of you know, I have added Trendy Me and Mommy Boutiques listing site to my family of Momprenuer resources and shopping sites. For those of you who are not familiar with what a listing site is, it is a website that will list companies and blogs that are geared towards moms who own businesses, companies that carry products relating to maternity, baby and children clothing and accessories, businesses that offer services to other businesses such as web design and hosting, mom and business social networking sites and pretty much any blog that is family oriented. I have recently changed pricing on ad spots for the paid advertisments and there are also FREE ad spots for anyone that wants to sign up their company and then as people click on your ad then your ad goes higher and higher in the free listings. You will receive a "Seal of Approval" that you will place on your blog or website or anywhere you want to place it to show others that you advertise on Trendy MAMBS and if they click on the Seal then they are directed to the listing site and can vote for your ad in order to rank you higher in the free listings making you more visible to visitors and directing traffic to your sites. I currently advertise Trendy MAMBS on another site and plan on getting more ad spots soon which will direct more traffic to Trendy MAMBS thus directing more traffic to you as well.

If you do not have a banner for ads please contact Maggie at Boutique Graphics. She can create banners, websites, blogs, print marketing, and much more. She has template websites to choice from or she can do custom designs also. Maggie is not only very affordable but she is awesome to work with; very clear on her directions and very friendly and prompt.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

Wee Squeek ~ Fun Shoes for Kids ~ Giveaway!

A little over a year after the birth of my first daughter, Avery, while managing an apartment community, a family came in to view our apartments with one of my leasing consultants. While working on financial reports, I kept hearing this squeaking noise and could not for the life of me figure out what it was and where it was coming from. So after a couple more minutes, curiosity got the best of me so I went on the hunt for the squeaky little noise. After walking through my office and foyer, I entered our resident cybercafe and low and behold, there was this little girl about 18 months old walking around with her family and my coworker; just squeaking away with every tiny little step. I asked her parents where they found her shoes since I had a toddler at home and they stated that they had bought them in India; however, they did not know where I could find them here in the states. The mother had also explained to me that they help to teach children how to walk because the child can hear the squeaking noise every time they step down with each foot which encourages their development. So when I got back to my office, I of course started searching online for these wonderful adorable little shoes. I was never able to find the shoes online for sale here in the states; they were all in other countries. So when I was a contacted by the representative, Cara, with Wee Squeak, I was delighted because I now have a second daughter, Sydney, who is 12 1/2 months old and learning to walk.

They come in tons of colors and styles and their squeak comes from a cushion in the heal that squeezes air through a tiny nozzle making the squeak sound. Another awesome thing about these shoes are that they have been tested for lead and have passed all requirements. Click here to view their lead testing reports. They come in sizes 3-12 and when you don't want them squeaking, say maybe in church or the library, you can pull the squeaker out. Wanna see the shoes in action?:

I wanted to share these shoes with you, and Cara was gracious enough to offer a pair of shoes to one lucky winner! She will be offering a boy or a girls pair of shoes depending on which gender the winner's child is. Here's how it works:

Visit Wee Squeak, browse around for a while and then leave a comment on my blog letting me know what else you were fond of; don't forget to mention the gender of your child and if you have more than one, unfortunately you will have to pick which pair of shoes you prefer ~ boy or girl (actual shoes not pictured).

Here is an excerpt from Wee Squeak's website ( : "As parents of infants and toddlers, our inspiration for WeeSqueak shoes was watching our children in these shoes. We discovered these little gems while in China adopting our oldest daughter, Chloe. However, during the adopting of our youngest daughter, Ellie, we had the idea to bring some shoes back for our friend's children. Our company, WeeSqueak, was born! We are fun parents, with fun shoes for fun kids! Wee Squeak donates 5% of our profits to Half the Sky and to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society."

And the Winner is........#52 rhonjerm!! Congratulations.
