    Oh Lovely Day Mother's Day Gift Guide + Giveaway

    You know how much I love my fellow mommas out there and I know you all need to be treated to some great gifts for Mother’s Day. So I thought instead of just doing a gift guide that you can use as a strong hint for what you’d love to receive I would include a giveaway as well. I gathered my favorite gift ideas for Mother’s Day — stuff most mommas want or need — and ONE of you lucky mommas will win it all! Read more about why I love all of these things and brands below and then enter the giveaway in the widget at the bottom of the post!

    1. Custom heirlooms from Paloma’s Nest: I can’t think of a mom who wouldn’t love to get a custom ceramic silhouette of their child. I treasure the ones of my sons (pictured above) more than most other things I own. But Paloma’s Nest makes so many other beautiful keepsakes, so the winner will get $150 credit to spend however you wish. I also love these memory boxes and have one for both of my children.

    2. Day Tripper Bag from Birdling Bags: Moms have to carry around alot of stuff, especially when they have small children. But no one said the bags we use have to be ugly. I love my Weekender from Birdling and their new Day Tripper Bag is on my must list as well. The winner will win a Faded Tan Day Tripper Bag.

    3. A Personalized Heart Snapshot Print + Frame from Minted: What does Minted do that I don’t love? If you’re like me all of your photos are taken on your phone and then they never get printed. That is why I love this print from Minted — it let’s you choose and display 30 of your favorite photos so you get them off your phone and onto your wall. The winner will receive one 16×16 Heart Snapshot print and frame of choice. Oh, and there’s a foil version too and a sale going on at Minted for all foil art — 20% off with this link and code SPRINGFOIL through 4/27/15.

    4. Raising Tiny Humas is Exhausting Mug from Weestructed: Two things most moms need: coffee and a laugh. This mug holds your coffee (or tea. or wine – no judgement) and gives you a laugh, while also preaching TRUTH. And one of you will win one. Let’s all instagram ourselves holding this mug 🙂

    5. Photo Books from Chatbooks: Remember what I said about my photos never seeing the light of day? Well that has changed thanks to Chatbooks. I love that you can print your instagram photos easily and affordably. The winner will receive a $30 credit to Chatbooks, and the rest of you can get your first book free! Just head to Chatbooks, make your book, and insert this referral at checkout for a free first book: F7GVKEJX

    6. Mama Bar Necklace from Made By Mary With Love: if you follow me on instagram, you have seen my vertical bar necklace from Made By Mary With Love. I have a bar with each of my boys’ names on it and I never take it off. Charlie likes to ask me which says which name, and Calvin is determined to eat it or break it. But it is another treasured possession and I have gotten SO many compliments on it (Lauren Conrad even asked me about it when I met her!) The winner will receive their choice of either a horizontal bar necklace with name of your choice OR a ‘mama’ bar necklace.

    7. Freshly Picked Moccasins: Any mom of a little one or a momma-to-be has dreamed of putting her babe in a pair of Freshly Picked Moccs. These are by far my favorite shoes that Calvin owns! They are cute, obviously. But more than that, they stay on his feet, are easy to put on (I can put a mocc on his foot with one hand while wearing him, which is impossible with any other shoe, sock, or bootie we have), and are really great quality. The winner will get a pair of their choice.

    8. Wine from One Hope Wine: Sometimes a nice glass of wine cures a long momma day. My favorites: the Pinot Noir (red) or Sav Blanc (white) from One Hope Wine. I also love that every bottle purchased from One Hope makes an impact — donating money to important causes. So drink up! The winner will get a $30 credit so you can choose your own favorite bottle of wine (or coffee or tea if you aren’t a wine drinker — they do that too!)

    9. Mama’s Ritual set from Zoe Organics: Another great way for moms to unwind at the end of the day (or nap time, or whenever you get a little time to yourself) is with the Mama’s Ritual bath soak and aromatherapy oil from Zoe Organics.

    I know I would love to receive any one of those gifts listed above, and hope some of you will receive them too! You can pin them directly from the slideshow above, in case you have a “hint hint” board 🙂

    Now for the giveaway! Enter in the widget below (if you are on a mobile device sometimes the widget takes time to load). Follow the instructions in the giveaway widget and read the terms and conditions. The giveaway will run from 4/22/15-4/27/15 and the randomly selected winner will be displayed in the widget below sometime on 4/28/15. Good luck!

      My Mom victory was about a month after our son arrived. We are still getting used to juggling 3 kiddos but this was just a simple instance where it worked. I was breastfeeding our son and had my daughters on either side of me and helping them with homework. I felt that I perfected juggling.

      I am nearly done with my master’s degree which I started while 16 weeks pregnant with my first! I’m finishing about 6 months pregnant with my second! It’s a personal victory for me that I’m finishing while also spending my everyday as a stay at home momma, who spends naptimes and nighttimes studying and writing papers!

    37. Amy ledet
      Posted Apr 22 at 7:55 pm | Permalink

      Mama’s victory of the day: got TWO loads of laundry done! Wait-folding and hanging doesn’t count as “done” right? My 10 month old tried to eat a small piece of paper, and some other small object she seemed to locate, and I fished both items out before she swallowed! Woo! Oh, and lost a lipstick to her yesterday, but it’s okay, it was totally her color. We have survived another day, and she is finally sleeping (for now….).

      The mom milestone that I’m proud of is accepting that my child wants to be different. At first I was comparing and wondering why my child wasn’t progressing as fast as the other children but at 18 months, he’s still not walking and I’m OK with that 🙂 . He just wants to be my little baby for a little bit longer.
      Side note* I’ve been saving up to buy the weathered brown moccs. $60 is a lot but they are so cute!!!!!

      Well after 2.5 years of breastfeeding momma is all done. I feel pretty proud of myself and my daughter Fiona is adapting pretty well. She has asked for “milks” a few times but when I tell her it’s all gone she has been okay with it. I miss it so at times it’s been hard to stay strong but so far, so good.

      Earlier this week I survived the day that I will always remember as “Poopmageddon.” My six-week-old daughter had the most severe blow out, I’m talking poop in her hair, there was some serious force behind it. Our dog had an accident (I really think he and the kids communicated secretly and planned this full frontal assault) on the tile by the front door and my son opened said door and smeared it everywhere. And finally I was feeding my daughter and my son told me that he needed wiped (he’s almost 4) and so I told him to hang on a second, but I heard him repeatedly flushing and then I heard water splashing. I put the baby down, she wasn’t pleased to be interupted, but I knew somethinf very bad was happening. My son was sitting on the toilet, holding the lever down and poo tinged water was pouring from the toilet, his other hand was in the stream of Crap water overflowing on the other side. I lifted him off the toilet, and then dipped aome water out of the toilet with a bucket and then plunged the toilet because it was clogged. The clog was my favorite lipstick that my son had tried to flush in a wad of paper towels. I survived.

      As a woman that battles depression and anxiety disorders, and a new stay-at-home mom, every day that goes by is a victory. But putting the baby to sleep in the crib. I still worry about SIDS, have to get up every 2-3h, but she’s been getting better sleep this way.

       We have this hat, passed down to Charlie from my friend's little boy, then passed down to Calvin. It's just a simple grey hat but it is so so cute and is the thing that my boys wear the most in the toddler years. It holds so much sentimental value for me. Well yesterday I took the babies on a walk and somewhere along the way Calvin chucked it. He also tossed his shoes but I saw those right away. It wasn't until we stopped for lunch that I realized the hat was gone. I was so sad about it that I retraced our steps to see if I could find it. No luck. I'm pretty sure he tossed it in Goodwill while I was digging for stuff for our Halloween costumes. Which means it is gone, because when you lose something in Goodwill it is seriously like looking for a needle in a haystack. I've been sick about it ever since, which I know is silly. It's just a hat, after all. But it's one of those things that I was planning to pass to Quincy and then save forever and when I was old and grey I would dig it out of the attic and take a walk down memory lane. You moms know what I'm talking about. But it's gone and all I have are photos and the memories. Luckily Calvin had started putting it on Quincy's head and last week I snapped this picture. Charlie and Calvin both kept saying "cuuuuuuute" ❤️ I hope it makes its way onto another little boy's head someday #thefredrickboys #calvinandquincy #brudders #thebrotherhoodofthegreytoddlerhat  You've got a few hours left to enter to win your choice of sling from @mywildbird - head to my blog to enter now!
