Project Pink

Project Pink + Munchkin

Now through the end of October, Munchkin is playing a small part in helping moms focus on their own health by putting a spotlight on breast cancer prevention. Project Pink is a program that raises money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure and reminds moms, “don’t duck a breast exam.”

Here are some ways you can be a part of this campaign:
  • Email A Duck, Raise A Buck – This viral component enables individuals to email friends a virtual duck that reminds them to participate in routine breast exams. Users may track their ducks as they get forwarded around, and in turn, Munchkin will donate $0.05 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure for every duck forwarded.
  • Buy Your Own Duck – Created to be a visual reminder of routine breast exams, Munchkin’s 2008 limited edition Project Pink Bath Ducks will be available online and at select retailers nationwide for $3.00. One hundred percent of the net profits from the sale of these ducks will be donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
  • Celebrity Duck eBay Auction – Celebrity participants, from Courteney Cox to Matthew McConaughey, have shown support of Project Pink by donating hand-decorated and autographed limited edition ducks. Each week in October, during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a number of celebrity-decorated ducks will be available for auction exclusively on eBa,y with all proceeds benefiting the Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
So, whether you buy a pink duck or simply spread the word, you can help Munchkin help moms stay healthy so we can continue being great parents.

FRIDAY NIGHT TIP & A WINDOW INTO MY LIFE!

Hi Everyone! Well, it has been a crazy week for me..I am so excited. I have been asked to be an Editor on MomLogic.com for all of the Michigan community. Along, with my friend Claire from http://www.bitsfromabrit.blogspot.com/. We are going to be bringing you all kinds of contests, information and parenting tips. We are also throwing a HUGE benefit for the GAL TO GAL Foundation and http://www.designhergals.com/ on October 18th. And will be bringing you more details so that you can join us in the virtual walk for Stage IV Breast Cancer.

So this is just a quick peek into my life...since I have a wonderful eye infection and need to turn this laptop off and go to bed. Well, every Saturday morning, I vacuum my living room....we have crappy old carpet and it needs it like every other day. Well, everytime I vacuum Korbyn wants to help me and when I try to take back the vacuum he throws a tantrum. I think it is so cute and this is only a minor tantrum..but I find it funny. He is my little honey and I can't wait to show him these videos later in life. I hope you enjoy it. Leave me a comment if you like my tip?


My tip...get your baby to do the vacuuming! HA! HA! Just kidding!

Video is courtesy of my FLIP MINO! LOVE THAT CAMERA!!!

Shanda

Busy, but fun, times!

There's some exciting things happening with our Mommies....

Christine was featured on Good Day Sacramento, one of the best features we have all yet to see. Also, you have got to check out her super star moment! But, she is leaving for vacation so I will try to get some things done around this place.

In the meantime I will be guest posting on From Dates To Diapers and beyond on Sunday, so come over and see what I have to say.

Amanda also is absent due to her big move, and I myself go back to school next week. It's been a long journey but I'm going to do it!

Hopefully I can get another window up soon. Who's going to join me?

I want to give everyone an update since we've been busy behind the scenes trying to get winners together. It's so hard doing large events like this and thank every one of you for your patience.

    Just A Note:

    Have you missed me?

    Between lessons, diapers, and games with my kiddos, I've been busy gathering information for all of our winners of our Back to School Event. It's been quite the tedious task and it's taking me a lot longer than I expected!

    I was up until 3am on Thursday, but I wasn't emailing any winners like I should have been. Instead I was reading. I hope you'll forgive me. I just had to find out what happened to Marcus in the second book in a fabulous series. You MUST read The Mark of the Lion series by Francine Rivers - You'll see what I mean!

    Sorry for the tangent. Anyway....

    You should be receiving an email shortly if you won a prize, but if you haven't yet, please do not worry... We haven't forgotten about you! If you do see your name on the list of winners, and have not yet contacted us, please do so, with the name of your prize as the subject in either an email or by using the contact form.

    I do ask, though, that if you have already contacted us with your info, please do not do so a second time!
    We'll be in touch soon!

    Thank you for your patience and understanding!

    And, seriously, if you like to read, go out now and buy, borrow, or steal (not really) the Mark of the Lion series... If you're anything like me, you won't be able to put them down!!



    P.S. Come take a look at the Window Into Our Lives...

    Window Into Our Lives

    Welcome to an all new feature here at Mommies United!

    We are going to start an all new weekly feature here at Mommies United. A Window In To Our Lives is going to be a special as our readers are. By "window" we mean that you too can share a moment, video, picture, or special post with us. It must be a personal post that gives us a peak into your life!

    This week is special you can take a peak into Shanda's life as she meets Hannah Montana!

    My window is simple this week. Call my home at any point during the day and there will at least be one complaint about my dog Neleh. She's quite the dog from chewing on glass, to the infamous Attack Of The Roomba. While at times I can't deal with her spazzing out, or finding every roll of toilet paper in the house and tearing it into pieces she's a very special part of our family. With all my complaints I still look at her and love her just the same.

    My window is a video and picture of Neleh (don't mind Kai's hair she chopped it off a few weeks ago, that's a whole other story) While she has her moments to me this is super cute you can see just how all over the place Neleh is. She is smart I swear!

    This picture is Neleh in all her glory, she actually slept like that for an hour. I tried waking her up to get her out of her "doggie jail" but she slept like a dog. She often naps in her "jail" but never like this.

    Just another reason for me to smile about my daily life.





    Now it is your turn, give us a peak into your window.
    (Just a note when you sign a linky here at Mommies United your name will be turned into a LIVE link, giving you one free link. It's our small gift to you)

    Friday!



    I just wanted to share my HOT ATOMIC SHRIMP recipe with you! I was trying to be funny and make the hottest recipe I could for my hubby, since he is a HOT SAUCE JUNKIE! Well, it turns out that he loves it and wants it at least once a week. CRAZY! This stuff is so fricken hot it makes you cough and your eyes tear! :)

    My tip this week is my recipe and that finding something that hubby loves can make life even more fun. I can't believe how his eyes light up when I talk about food. It is true that a way to a man's heart is through his stomach. Enjoy the recipe!!!
    Do you have an awesome recipe or tip? Feel free to share it with us!!

    Hurry!



    Today is the last to enter most of our Back-to-School giveaways...
    Make sure you check 'em out, before it's too late!

    A Peak into a Homeschool Family's School

    School for a homeschool family can look very different on any given day.

    Take for instance my twins' history lesson today... Tonight after dinner, Daddy told them the story of young Martin Luther and his conversion to Christianity. Daddy engaged the boys' imaginations and took them on a journey back in time over 500 years. They asked questions, they interjected their 2-cents, and even chuckled and gasped at different parts of the story. Did they learn anything? Heck yeah. Can they tell you all about Martin Luther? You bet!

    Or, how about how Julia is learning to read better and better each day... She is teaching her younger brothers what each letter of the alphabet looks like and sounds like, she writes notes to Daddy to give him when he gets home from work, and spends close to an hour every day "playing" with her LeapFrog TAG.

    And so, we're learning in school, with our first week back just about over. But, did my kiddos ever really stop learning?

    Sarah the pre-schooler

    This past week not only did Samantha start Kindergarten, but Sarah started pre-school.

    At first I was little skeptical because she is only 22 months but I am so surprised at how much she already learned in ONE WEEK!

    In school they are learning about shapes. For the past few days she has been pointing to everything that is shaped as a circle and telling us "circle"

    Our children are learning so much every day!

    Even Kai is learning to write her name!


    Tuesday


    WOW! Our readers are awesome...can you believe how many entries we have on these back to school contests! We love you guys!!!! Without you..we wouldn't be here!! THANKS!
