No Need For Apologies Here!

Why do bloggers apologize for a lapse in activity? I work 50+ hour weeks outside of the home, I’m a wife, a mom, I have a home to keep up, I volunteer regularly,  and I workout 5 days a week. I understand priorities and, truth be told, I don’t have time to keep up my own blog much less keep up with reading the posts of all the other fabulous blogs I follow. I have no feelings of guilt over this, as much as I enjoy the blogosphere and social media, and I just don’t understand the need for anyone to apologize.  I consider it droll when posts are prefaced with such apologies, and honestly, I’d much prefer the author to jump right into more quality content than this. Time is always at a premium.

How do you feel about this? Do you consider it irksome or do you sympathize? Perhaps you can shed light on my own understanding of the matter… I look forward to hearing your input!

Bendi Baby Giveaway Winner


Congratulations are in order for Nina and her little ones on winning the Bendi Baby yoga mat giveaway!  I hope y’all get a great deal of enjoyment out of the new mat! 🙂

Bloghop Giveaway – BendiBaby Yoga Mat


I’ve got some great news for you if (a) you have a wee one, and (b) you like free stuff, especially if you are into yoga. Though I am pretty new to yoga (only 6 months into my practice), it has quickly become my “Fitness Favorite,” and I especially love that Baby Girl follows along with my moves. When I first learned about BendiBaby, I was impressed by company founder/owner Brooke Kochel’s love for and commitment to the earth and children.

These baby and toddler mats are her own brainchild, and here is what she has to say about them (from the BendiBaby website):

“I designed the mat with an on-the-go mother in mind. With a built-in antibacterial, you can fit the mat in your diaper bag or purse and lay it anywhere for a clean, soft space for “Little Bit”. The uses for the mats are as creative as your family can be: yoga at school, Mommy & Me classes, picnics at the park, diaper changes in public restrooms, fun at festivals, naps at daycare, baby massage with Daddy or Special Needs physical therapy.”


I bought our own little bit one of these mats, and I absolutely love it. After a thorough inspection, including lots of slobber and chewing, it appears that BendiBaby gets Baby Girl’s full approval, too!!

This really is a nice little mat. It’s the perfect size, fits easily into the diaper bag, and holds up perfectly to her sharp little toofies. It has nice grip, cushioning, and we love the colors!

Here’s the great news… BendiBaby has offered to give one free mat away in this giveaway! If you would love for your little one to have his or her own yoga mat, this is a great opportunity for you! You can enter to win HERE —》 a Rafflecopter giveaway
