Woman to Woman events and a give-away

The topic for Woman to Woman on Tuesday, August 28th, will be "Learning to say no". A lot of women feel like they have to "do it all", regardless of what may be realistic for them. Do you fall into this category? Can you just not resist the urge to be involved in everything? Or have you learned to say no? Have you taken a step backward and seen positive results? Share your frustrations or share your advice... Tell us what you think about the current trend to be all things to all people.

In October we will be having a Woman to Woman book review! Morning Glory loves mysteries and I love fiction. So we decided that we would let you choose anything from those two genres. Start thinking now of a book that has had an impact on you. It will be fun to hear each other's reviews and I suspect it will also give us each some new ideas for "what to read next".

The remaining topics will be as follows:

8/28-Learning to say "no"
9/11-Overcoming the "people pleaser" syndrome
9/25-TIPS AND TRICKS facing your parenting fears
10/9-book review
10/23-Dealing with grief
11/13-Being single again
11/27-Infertility
12/11-Trying to be something/someone you are not

Come one, come all, and join us on Tuesday!

--------------------------------------------------

I need to close out the summer by giving something away. This time there is something for Mommy AND baby! So please leave a comment in this post (lurkers - you too!) and you will be entered in a drawing for this covered baby wipes container and miniature desk organization kit, all of which are very matchy-matchy and cute. The winner will be announced on Friday, August 30. So there is plenty of time to get a good group of entrees and create lots of yummy anticipation!

Amber said...

I used to be the queen of this month's topic. However since having my latest child, I have learned to say "no." And with eloquence.

There are so many hours in the day that if I start sacrificing the things and people I love for things I don't, then I have lost perspective all together.

Cute prizes and great topics!!

Annie said...

So cute! I know a new mommy who could use that wipes holder, and I would love the matchy mommy stuff.

Thanks for the W2W. Note to me - just say no!

Cmommy said...

Thank you for posting the topics--I like to think about stuff!

Add me to the drawing, please :-) I don't have a baby, but we still use wipes for various accidents.

I'm in for the drawing! Those topics, for woman to woman, sound really interesting! I'll have to join, if I can remember! ;)

Love your banner, by the way! I haven't had a chance to tell you that yet! LOVE it!

Great prizes, enter me in the drawing!

CHEL said...

I really really really need to learn how to say "NO." It is not in my vocabulary. Of course, I don't always want to say no, but when I need to say no, I need to know how!

Count me in the drawing! How adorable!

Jennie said...

count me in! i am in need of having the strength to say no...

Lara said...

I've really enjoyed reading your thoughts when you do Woman to Woman since I found your blog this summer. Curious how it works, do I write a blog about the topic? I have much to say about it, that's for sure!

Stacy said...

Hi, you have an eye catching header in your blog! Really nice. I came here from Michele's blog. She is being featured in PPP.

Visit my blog and keep in touch...

Be my friend!

Becky K said...

Hi Lei, I haven't been "lurking" too long, but figured it was as good a time as ever to say hi! I really like reading your blog, and I loved your contest entry where you wrote about your mom's collecting. I can TOTALLY relate, as the daughter of a collector (should I say hoarder?). Take care, and I'll try to comment when even you haven't offered up bait! Becky

meta said...

i'll be reading what others have to say - i need some help with saying NO before I blow my top.

Crystal said...

How sweet of you to do this, Lei! Thanks for the chance.rjdqds
