Huggies MomInspired Grant Program

Maria Bailey of MomSelect has a passion for helping moms build their business. For the last 3 years, she's been working with Huggies to create a program that empowers mom business owners with the money and information they need to build their businesses. Maria's first success was talking Huggies into launching the Huggies MomInspired grant program,, which awards $15,000 grants to mom inventors.

In 2010, The Huggies brand introduced its MomInspired grant program, providing inventive moms with the resources and seed capital they need to help transform viable product ideas into successful new businesses, or take their businesses to the next level. In its inaugural round of submissions, the program solicited almost 400 applications and awarded $15,000 each to 12 inspired moms to help fund their business startups based on innovative baby or child care products inspired by motherhood. Grant-worthy examples include:

o Allyson Phillips - TILTY CUP
o Amy Baxter,…

AboutHere, Home, Hope:

Here, Home, Hope by author Kaira Rouda is the fictional story of one woman's courageous journey through midlife crisis and personal reinvention - all told with a sense of heart and humor.

Kelly Mills Johnson becomes restless in her thirty-ninth year. An appetite for more, forces her to take stock of her ordinary middle-American existence and her neighbors’ seemingly perfect lives. Her marriage to a successful attorney has settled into a comfortable routine, and being the mother of two adorable sons has been rewarding but exhausting. Meanwhile, Kelly’s own passions lie wasted. She eyes with envy the lives of her two best friends, Kathryn and Charlotte, both beautiful, successful businesswomen who seem to have it all. Kelly takes charge of her life, devising a midlife makeover plan.

Here, Home, Hope will surely appeal to readers of chick lit and other women’s fiction titles who are ready to transition into something new in their own life.

Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus

My family and I were given the opportunity to go to the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus this past Friday night! The GREATEST show on earth...TRULY was THE GREATEST show on earth!! What a delight!! I have to say...we have only gone to little circuses 10 and 12 year old were not happy to have to go to this one...but by intermission they were apologizing for giving me grief....they said, "This is SO cool!" So...that goes to show you that a circus is NOT just a circus. It is only a TRUE circus if it is a Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus!

First off, we had GREAT seats! 7th row...right up front! This next few pictures are of the opening show.
After the opening we went right into horses. My daughter is a HUGE fan of horses...this was FABULOUS for her! There were three rings. The first two rings held arabians, etc. The third ring in the back held ZEBRAS! If you look real closely you can see the stripes back there. My daughter was beside herse…
