Mental Health Day

Annette and I are refraining from posting a giveaway today. We need a break. I am so busy planning my son’s second birthday party and my wedding (both this month). I just need a breather. And I’m sure we’re both suffering from some bloggy burnout with all the posts lately. Be bake tomorrow with more giveaways.

Welcome, Summer Blog Tour 2010 Readers!

Layout 1

Hi, today I am the featured blogger on the Summer Blog Tour 2010 which is being hosted by Living my MoMent and The Work at Home Woman. You can visit this post to see all of the upcoming bloggers which will be featured as well as the ones you’ve already missed.

Anywho…I guess you probably want to know a little about who I am and why this blog exists right about now, huh? Well, I am Chelsea. I am 21 years old. I live in Louisiana with my son, Leland, who will be turning two in August and my fiance, Ben. Ben is about to start his last semester of college where he is obtaining his Bachelor’s in Psychology. I plan on starting college next semester and I plan on majoring in Public Relations with a minor in Music. I want to be PR for musicians…that’s my dream.

As for the blog, I like to voice my opinions, have my little two cents out there in the world. If people read it, great. If not, oh well…at least I got it out there. This blog focuses mostly on product reviews and giveaways. I plan on adding more information about saving and making money soon, but at the moment I just don’t feel like I should be the go-to girl on the subject.

I have two other blogs as well. I have Music. Movies. Mayhem. This one is my passion. It is a blog for entertainment and electronics reviews and giveaways. I also host two memes there Karaoke Saturdays and Worth a Listen (on Tuesdays). Wait…Tuesday. That’s today! You should totally click the link and leave me a comment and participate. I’m just sayin’…

My other blog is pretty inactive. I plan on doing more with it in September. It’s called The Fashion Rehab and I run that one with one of my co-workers, Sultonah. Basically, we wanted to start a site for all of our fashion addictions and try and help readers find celebrity looks at a fraction of the cost. Suffice it to say, we haven’t posted very much, but I’ll fix that later on this year. Right now, my other two blogs are a bit more important.

For all of you who are here because you read that I have giveaways, um yes…I have a Spoil Your Family Summer Giveaway Event going on right now along with Annette from Annette Funnyjello (formerly Fairy Blog Mother). All of my giveaways are currently listed on my sidebar and include giveaways from the following companies: iFrogz, Slacker Radio, Affinitas Intimates, Berry Perry, Anne Taintor Inc., Novica, Tupperware, VTech, Little Tikes, Carolina Pad, Babyjo Bamboo Wear and Sunglass Warehouse. More will be added everyday until August 31st.

I think that about covers everything. Thanks for reading!

Sunday Stealing


Sunday Stealing: Another Question Meme

Dead in a ditch somewhere?

I think it was Carraba’s with my mom and it was good food but I wasn’t feeling well.

9. Who was the last person you bought a birthday card for?

Ben? I don’t really do birthday cards. I usually get one for him cause it’s easy to find one that plays a song I know he likes or has Simpsons on it…or has kittens on it. He’s realllly easy to shop for.

10. What is your worst bad habit?

Not sure, I have too many.

11. Name a magazine you subscribe to?


12. Your favorite pizza toppings?

Ham and Pineapple or BBQ Chicken

13. Whose number were you looking up the last time you used a phone book?

My landlord, I think. But I don’t actually use a phone book, I use Google.

14. Other than family, who is the person that you love most?

My best friend, Brittany!

15. What is the last thing you cooked?

Define “cook”. I fixed ramen noodles with chicken a la king yesterday.

16. Name something you wouldn’t want to buy used?


17. Which shoe do you put on first?

I think the left. I never really paid attention. I think it may just be whichever one I find first.

18. What is the last thing you remember losing?

I lose my keys on a daily basis, pretty much.

19. What is the ugliest piece of furniture in your house?

I’m pretty content with all of the furniture in my house currently. We still need like a lounger chair or something in the living room, but other than that. I like it. I hate our small TVs but they’re not furniture.

20. Last thing you bought and ended up returning?

I need to return the mop and bucket Ben bought. I bought a Swiffer Sweeper 2-in-1 instead.

21. What perfume/cologne do you wear? If none, why?

I wear Burberry Brit and sometimes Lucky #6. I also really like Dulce and Gabana Light Blue and Angel.

22. Your favorite board game?

I like Scene It and Trivial Pursuit type games.

23. What was the last board game you played?


24. Where did your vehicle come from?

I don’t have one yet. :(

25. If a movie was made about your life what would the theme song be?

Ok, I was kind of thinking about this yesterday…but I was thinking of what my theme song would be if I had a Youtube series and it would be Stupid MF by Mindless Self Indulgence.

But if it were a movie about my life, that would be different…I think it would be Nineteen by Tegan and Sara

26. You’re sad, who can cheer you up easily?

Leland, hands down!

27. What was the color of the bridesmaid dresses of the last wedding you went to?

Pfft…Red, I think. I barely remember the wedding much less the dresses.

28. What house cleaning chore do you hate to do the most?

Grilled and on a sandwich unless it’s from Ghetto Chicken, then fried, greasy and with TONS of honey mustard.

30. It is your birthday. You hope the cake is?

A Nightmare Before Christmas cookie cake (my birthday is like two weeks before Halloween).

A Review is Coming…


I just received news that I will be reviewing an item I have been wanting for Leland for a long while now, so expect a fun review on a CSN Stores item in the upcoming weeks. I can’t wait! Sorry, but I’m going to have to keep you all in suspense for right, as to what the review item is.

For those of you that don’t know, CSN Stores has 200+ unique online stores where you can buy just about everything from a bathroom vanity to an inflatable bouncer.

Disclosure: I was not compensated for this post. I will, however, be receiving a review item free of charge from CSN Stores.

Mama Makes Money is FINALLY on Facebook!

Today, I finally took the plunge and added Mama Makes Money to Facebook. It is now a Networked Blog and it also has a fan page. I would appreciate it if you would “follow” us and “like” us on Facebook as soon as you have a moment. These will be extra entry options in giveaways coming up in the near future, so you may as well get it out of the way now.

The links are also in the sidebar now. The Facebook icon in my sidebar is a link to the fan page (instead of my personal page, as it had been before) and the Networked Blog app has it’s own big ass widget to the right. Pardon my French.

Happy Mother’s Day!

In Case You Haven’t Noticed…

Mama Makes Money has just had a serious makeover. Not only do we have a new design, thanks to the wonderful Sara Bonds! We also just moved from Blogger to WordPress. And let me tell you, it was not easy…and we are still trying to figure out. By which I mean, I’ve been fumbling around like an idiot on my dashboard pretending like I know what I’m doing and pestering my other designer, Jessica, every two seconds. Thanks for all your help ladies. And to my readers, please let me know if you’re experiencing any difficulties with the blog or the feed in any way. I’m not sure if everything has transferred successfully or not.

Stay tuned for some exciting giveaways!
