Step2 Sand-Tastic Activity Center™ Giveaway


Enter today to win a Step2 Sand-Tastic Activity Center™ so your kids can have hours upon hours of Summer fun! The Mommy Nest has teamed up with Barbara's Beat and Not My Circus, Not My Monkeys to bring your this "Ready For Summer Fun" Giveaway!

Get your kids outside and into the fresh air. The best part is, the table is battery-free (my favorite type!). With the Sand-Tastic Activity Center™ by Step2, children will be engaged for hours (giving you a lot more time to relax and work on your tan grocery list). I especially love that the table is made in the USA (which is rare for toys anymore). The table is portable, with 2 easy to use handles. It also comes with a lid so that the sand stays bug and rain free. The lid is on a hinge and opens up to become part of the toy. Included are 6 accessories to digging and discovery. This table can hold up to 20 lbs of sand (not included). Adult assembly required.

The Ultimate Blog Party from 5 Minutes for Mom

Ultimate Blog Party 2014

I am excited to be participating in the Ultimate Blog Party this year hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom. If you're visiting from the party, thanks for stopping by! 

If you are not here about the blog party, the idea is for bloggers to get to know each other and network through blog-hopping. If you're a fellow blogger, head on over to join the party! 

About Me
I am a proud stay-at-home Mom to my adorable 16 month old, Carl. I have been blessed to have a wonderful husband that has made it possible for me to stay home with our son. There is no better job in the world! Aside from running after my toddler, I love spending hours creating things on Photoshop, finding inspiration for my home and family on Pinterest, and baking/cooking. Before staying home, I was a Special Education teacher. I am certified in Special Education (birth-adult) and Elementary Education. I have taught ages 3-years to adults at a local community college. Most recently, I was teaching Special Education at the elementary school level. 

I started my blog back in September of 2012 when I was a little over 5 months pregnant. Unfortunately, I was put on bed rest until I had my son at 35 weeks 6 days. As a teacher, I was used to being kept very busy and decided to use my time on the couch wisely. At the time, I thought I would be returning to teaching so I decided to share free printables and ideas for teachers and parents (which is still want I blog about with a little addition of ideas for younger children). 

Once I had my son, I decided to take time off blogging to learn how to be a Mom. My son had feeding difficulties and would BF for at least 1-2 hours at every sitting round the clock until he was 6 months old so I found little time to do much else. At 6 months he finally started to cut his time down and I began to have time again to do things. 

During the winter of 2013/14, my blog took off on Pinterest. One of my blog posts has had over 14k repins. At that point, I decided I wanted to get back into blogging. But of course, just because I have repins, doesn't mean I have followers. So I am hoping through parties like this one, I can learn more about building a steady audience. 

I am looking into being a part of Giveaways, Reviews, and even Guest Posting. I will be part of a giveaway starting next week, and I just received my first reading program to review. I am excited to learn more about the world of blogging from the many experience bloggers in this party. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read about me!
