A September to Remember $200 Cash Giveaway!

The kids are back in school, the weather will soon be getting cooler, and the last few months of 2013 are here.
We've collected some of the top mommy bloggers to come together with a special gift for YOU! A chance to win $200 in a fantastic September to Remember Giveaway! With how quickly the years pass, we want to give you an awesome September, whether you use the money for a special kid project, or just to fund a little downtime.

This giveaway is sponsored by the amazing ladies below. They all write blogs that are full of ideas, tips, tricks, crafts, recipes, and funny stories, sure to help ease the transition from summer back to structure. We hope you will take a minute to visit around, and then enter the giveaway below!




Every year, I wait anxious for autumn to come back around. Growing up in southern New Mexico, we had two seasons: Hot, and Hotter. The leaves would pretty much just bake until they were dead and then fall off. Missouri falls are completely different! I've seen ten of them, but I can't seem to get my fill of the beautiful colors and crisp air. One of my favorite things to do during the fall is to just take a drive, and hopefully end up with a fresh apple cider doughnut in my hand by the end of it! I love September because it feels like autumn is *almost* here!

~Giveaway!!~
Enter for a chance to win $200 PayPal Cash OR a $200 Amazon Gift Card (winner's choice!). The giveaway is open worldwide, and closes at midnight on Tuesday, September 10th, 2013. The first entry option is mandatory, with everything else being optional. Good luck!
