Sponsor Shout Out!

Many thanks to all of this month’s sponsors!

I continue to create these posts because the women who have buttons on this blog have become friends of mine and I want all of you to see the great stuff they’re selling and making. Read ahead to see some of my favorite products and find out about deals from each of these fabulous companies!

This month’s new sponsors are Oreck, Thirty-One Gifts from Kodi BeVelle and My Southern Accent by Wendy Woodall.


What can I say about Oreck? I am the proud owner of a Dual Max Air Purifier and that thing has made such a difference in our home!

My little handheld vacuum is the greatest thing, though. When I need to get into tight spaces to clean up, it’s perfect. Or if I need to get a spill off the couch, it’s perfect. When I took down all of the Christmas decorations, I just went around and cleaned up everything with this great, light weight handheld vacuum. The price is great and the function is unbeatable.

I also have the new Oreck Magnesium upright vacuum and it is truly the greatest vacuum I’ve ever used. I’m so proud to own one! I have a great, trusty older Oreck vacuum model that will not die and still works as great as it did when I first got it. I am an Oreck customer for life.

::My Southern Accent::

My friend, Wendy, started her Etsy shop called My Southern Accent last year. She sells these fantastic print/printables featuring Southern quotes and sayings. I just love them! They are perfect for an office, a creative space, as a reminder hanging on the wall in your closet, in a child’s room. They are just so cute and so creative!

I can’t wait to see what new designs she comes up with.

And Wendy was featured in Southern Living in the December issue for great gift ideas! Isn’t that so exciting? She is super talented and has become a friend of mine over the years. I’m so proud of all of her success and I just love her Etsy shop!

::Thirty-One Gifts with Kodi BeVelle::

Y’all know how much I love a good organizing tool and a great tote bag, right? Thirty-One Gifts is just the latest in amazing organizing gear. And Kodi has become a good friend of mine through blogging and Twitter.

The name is based on the Proverbs 31 woman and I think that is just so great. The company is centered around celebrating, encouraging and rewarding women. How great is that?

I have been drooling over so many of these bags and home organizing products. I love the magazine basket that you can carry from room to room. I love the thermal bags so much. We use them for Hayes’s bottles when we’re out and about and need to keep them warm.

The utility totes are great for transporting yoga gear, clean laundry, dirty laundry, beach supplies, party supplies and casseroles. You name it! I just love all of this stuff so much. I’m in serious need of a rolling duffle. For real. Am I just listing my Christmas wish list.

Check out Kodi’s Thirty-One site and place an order. All you have to do is click on “Place an Order” and click on the party  under Kodi’s name. And get to shopping.

::Polka Dot Posies::

I’m a boy mom, so I don’t buy bows, but I do love some bows on some little girls! Polka Dot Posies has the cutest and most affordable options for bows. Really, you cannot beat their prices. All of the bows and stocked and ready to ship so there’s no wait time to receive the bow.  I just think they are so cute! And, really. $4.00 for a bow? Can’t beat it. They also have hats, headbands and other accessories.

::BarBelles at Home and BarBellies at Home::

This is, without a doubt, the most unique sponsor on my blog, but I am SO excited to know about the blog and what it offers.

BarBelles At Home ( www.barbellesathome.com ) is an online fitness website that includes 2-3 web video workouts each week! How great is that? They also have printable workouts each week. The workouts are 10-30 minutes and provide you with step by step instruction during each workout.
These workouts are realistic in length and help you get results in as little time as possible.  I know that in my “job” I don’t have a lot of time, but the need to stay fit and in great shape is still there. Especially now! So this website has come in so handy for me.

The best part is that just by subscribing to this great blog, the stress of figuring out that day’s workout has been taken care of!

Caroline, the owner of Total Package Fitness, started BarBelles at Home to help her clients have something a little more convenient. And now Caroline is pregnant and has created BarBellies at Home. How cute is that? I would have loved to know about this when I was pregnant!

In addition to the workouts, the website has healthy, but yummy recipes that are good for the whole family (even picky husbands or children), as well as healthy options at restaurants for foodies who love to eat out but don’t love the inches that the rich food adds to your waist.

::Monogram Chick::

Oh my goodness, do I love the Monogram Chick. I recently ordered that gorgeous white, waffle weave, ruffle robe with my monogram on it. I am in love. I also recently ordered the 24 oz tumbler in a great purple color with a white decal with my monogram. I have used it so much!

Monogram Chick has the most wonderful gift selections and I have gone to her website time and time again looking for the perfect gift for every occasion. Monogram Chick is an extensive selection of fabulously unique products including gifts for bridesmaids, hostesses, sorority, housewarmings, children and babies. I have gotten so many of my favorite baby gifts and personalized items for myself and my children from Sarah, the Monogram Chick. She has items for every budget and no matter your budget, your gift will be personalized and meaningful to the recipient!

::Willow House with Callie Parker::

I am obsessed with Willow House. I’d buy everything from the catalog if I could afford it. My friend, Callie, sells these gorgeous products and a few months ago I hosted a party. For hosting the party, I was able to get some gorgeous things for some fabulous prices. I stocked up on some amazing entertaining pieces. The collage above shows some of the things I have and some of the things on my wish list, including the Nola Party Bucket and the Christmas card display holder.

Have you always wanted the Savannah Beverage Server? They’re back for a limited time and at 40% off! I have three of these and love them for parties. Click here to order yours!

Each season, they have the greatest pieces that fit with the latest trends and I always look for something to fit every outfit. Stella & Dot offers some of the most attractive, trendy jewelry I have seen in years. I have quite a few pieces and I wear at least one thing every day.

::Sweet Birdie’s Nest::

Any time someone asks me who to use for a great birthday invitation for their child or who to use to get all the extra fun birthday accessories for their party, I recommend Sweet Birdie’s Nest. Sweet Birdie’s Nest is two sisters who make sure everyone has whimsical, beautiful and personalized stationery and party invitations.  These girls create invitations and details for bridal and baby showers, Christmas cards, birth announcements, and Baptisms.  They created all of the invitations, banners, cupcake toppers, party circles, and favor tags for Hudson’s second birthday this year.

This month, Sweet Birdie’s Nest is offering an adorable Valentine’s Day printable for school age kids! I’m so excited about it and can’t wait to show you more!

::Southern Tots::

Southern Tots has every single one of my favorite brands for kiddos. My favorite smocked and applique styles are there and Ashley also creates custom pieces for parties and occasions.

Southern Tots has Facebook sales almost every day of the week! You can go on Facebook on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to buy great smocked and appliquéd outfits for your little ones!

Their spring collections are on the website now and they are c-ute! You can always find something new for your little boy or girl when you visit www.southerntots.com!  Find them on Facebook as Southern Tots.

::Ashley Brooke Designs::

Ashley Brooke Designs is one of my absolute favorite gems that I’ve found through blogging. Her one-of-a-kind designs have found a place in our home as I’ve had stationery created for our family, for Hudson, for Hayes, given custom stationery as gifts, and used Ashley Brooke’s designs for invitations! Ashley Brooke Designs is a luxury paper company where Ashley creates hand-drawn fashion sketches from scratch.  She creates blog headers, invitations, personal stationery, announcements, and holiday cards. She works one on one with clients to design exactly what they’re looking for.  The designs are available on everything from stationery to coffee mugs to tote bags.

Now Ashley has an amazing online shop that includes beautiful stationery that is already made and ready to go. These are some of the most adorable notepads, moving announcements, thank you cards and “just because” notes I’ve seen!

::Penny Lane Designs::

Marina of Penny Lane Designs creates the best blog designs, hands down! I have used Marina from Penny Lane Designs to create my blog design twice now. When I had my original blog, she created an adorable design there, and she created the one I have now. I always recommend her to everyone because I believe she is the best of the best. She offers pre-fab layouts and custom blog headers. Each custom header is truly original and she helps your blog brand itself. I love working with her! Click here to place your order.

::Kelly Moore Bag::

Kelly Moore is one of the best in the business when it comes to photography. She has amazing style and a gift of working with people and making everyone feel beautiful. She shot my wedding, engagement, and bridal photos and she happens to be an old friend of mine. She also has this amazing line of camera bags. I have the B-Hobo bag and carry it on every single vacation. It holds my big camera and I don’t look like a tourist carrying it! Her bags are absolutely beautiful and I love to carry mine even when there isn’t a camera in it!

    Hey Erin!
    So, there’s no time stamp on this blog BUT it’s 6:43 AM in TX and 7:43 AM on the East Coast and being that your blog is already updated for February 1st, I can only assume your living up to your resolution and getting up earlier! Just wanted to say! “You Go Girl!” Changing the sleep schedule for a Mamma is hard and geez I only have one! But the extra “me” time I get in the wee hours of morning, make for a much happier Mamma! So anywho, just wanted to pop in and say congrats! Have a great day!
