Go to ProjectMom with MelissaStuff! #Giveaway

Have you ever heard of Project Mom?

Well, I hadn't . . . not until last year. And then all of the sudden my Facebook page and my blogger feed started blowing up with people talking about attending, looking for tickets, how much fun they were having and I was stumped about how I had missed out on something that was apparently this important for moms like me.

So when I was approached recently about hosting a giveaway for this year's Project Mom and have the chance to attend with my best friends, I was sold. They didn't have to ask twice.

I mean, let's think about it for a minute. A Friday night and Saturday hanging out with my best girl friends, in the peace and quiet of a hotel room. We get to hang out with other girls like us. If we want to sit quietly and read we can. If we want to go out to eat and laugh until we cry about "girl stuff," we can. We will be able to sleep the entire night without being woken up by any little ones. We can wake up when we're ready. We can take a shower AND go to the bathroom without being interrupted. We can get dressed, put on makeup and maybe even wear jewelry.

Seriously, what is that worth? All by itself.

And then you add to it amazing speakers like the Crockin' Girls (uh, they have over 675,000 likes on Facebook!). They have quite a bit of wisdom on the panel too - including the owner of a Christian counseling center and the children's pastor of Legacy church in Plano. There are other experts in their fields - education, adoption, party planning. No matter what breakout session you choose you'll be hearing from the best.

There are two ways to attend this event. For $79 you can come Friday night, attend a cooking demonstration by the Crockin' Girls and then an exclusive Meet-and-Greet with the founders and speakers. You can stay the night at the hotel for an additional $129. If you do, you'll be done in plenty of time to get extra rest, watch tv without sharing or sit around laughing and joking with a friend.

If you want to get up early, there's Rise and Shine Yoga at 6:45 a.m. Everyone else will join in at 9 a.m. for the first session. There will be an entire day of shopping, informative sessions, and sharing.

If you can't come Friday night, you can attend just Saturday's events for only $49!

The Dallas session will be Friday night, September 27 and Saturday, September 28. The event is being held at the John Q. Hammons Marriott in the Villages of Allen on Stacy Rd.  Lots of food and shopping in walking distance!

AND, just for my wonderful readers, if you use the code STUFF you will get 25% off your ProjectMom ticket. (Unfortunately, it doesn't discount the room rate at the Marriott.)

The other way you can go is by entering this giveaway! FOUR winners will win 2 tickets each ($79 retail value apiece) to attend the Dallas ProjectMom weekend by entering below (may need to wait just a minute for the Rafflecopter form to load.)

Come go with us!!! How fun would that be?

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

I Cried the First Time I Watched My Son Wrestle

My middle son, Colt, told me not too long ago that he wanted to wrestle. We are a sports family, but wrestling has never been one of those sports. AND this child is on the spectrum . . . now, all that really means for him is that he's not going to pick up on any social hints you drop, he's incredibly literal, and he's finicky about sensations. Yes, the child who is finicky about sensations told me he wanted to wrestle - where people are constantly touching you and holding you down and forcing your body into positions you don't want it to be in. But I have always determined that I would not hold my children back by forcing artificial boundaries on them that they don't have for themselves - so if the boy wanted to wrestle, we were going to let him try it out.

A couple of weekends ago, we went to his first wrestling tournament. I was so naive. We were supposed to be there at 9 am, and, in all seriousness, I made plans for 11 am. I thought we would walk in, he would h…

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
