The Mint Chip Mama I Completed My Goal!

@TheMintChipMama Facebook

OMG – So you know when you have no time to breathe and your house is a mess… Always? Yes, that’s continuously me. In addition, do you know what’s fun? Launching a blog. Consequently, do you know what’s more fun? Declaring before I knew how labor-intensive each post would be that I would write one every day. For a month. Ugh… However, I completed my goal!

In other words, this has been a really fun month. Accordingly, I made some amazing brand connections. Additionally, I told the story of nouns (people, places, and things) that I believe in. For instance, these items genuinely have meaning to me and my family. Finally, I have connected with tons of new people on so many different levels and I made new friends!

I Did It!

Above all, I am really proud of myself for completing this #MintChipMama31DaystilBTS. Hip Hip Hooray for me! For those who also blog you know how exhausting it is. However, for those who do not – it is exhausting! So I invite any of you to give me a pat on the back the next time you see me.

Subsequently, going forward The Mint Chip Mama will be a weekly blog. Meanwhile, I will continue to feature nouns I really believe in, make life easier, are more “Earth-friendly”, and bring a smile to my face. Moreover, I have some great upcoming posts (in my unique writing style of making you cry and laugh) up my sleeve, don’t you worry.

I will also continue to do giveaways because – who doesn’t like winning stuff!

Likewise, if there is something you would like me to write about – just ask. Additionally, if YOU want to be a guest blogger – just ask!

A little secret: In case you missed it – at the bottom of each post I wrote: “Visit me on Facebook. Follow me on Twitter. Love me forever. #MintChipMama31DaystilBTS” For each “Love me forever” Also, I linked to a different picture of myself from all around the world. I had so much fun reliving my past 36 years. It was fun to remember I did fun and cool stuff before my title was “Mom”. Most important, I hope you enjoyed them too. If you missed one they are all posted on my Facebook page.

Thank You

As I said when I started this odyssey these are all brands I really use and believe in for years. Similarly, I cannot thank the brands and their Public Relations teams enough for believing in me – a new comer to this Mommy Blogging world. Finally, as Travis Birkenstock said “Thank you for taking a chance on an unknown kid”. I look forward to working with you all again in the future!
