Well, I’m still in a fiesta mood and I’m “muy feliz” to be guest posting today at Mom It Forward with a fun and easy “Musical Maracas” kids craft. To see me and my little senorita shake our homemade maracas, just click on the Mom It Forward logo below – and make sure to leave me a little love there!
At 3 pm today, spring break officially started in my house and I’ve got 10 full days of family fun ahead! We’ve got playdtes, outdoor activities, movie marathons and even an amazing trip on the agenda! Even The Harried Mom is taking a spring break of sorts – this week we’re loading up on reviews and giveaways of “fun things to do with kids!”
However, I’m going to start this break off by kickin’ it back old school and joining in again with a new installment of “Old School Blogging.” I really enjoy these posts because they are so entertaining read and I always learn something new about my favorite bloggers!
This is my first-ever vlog! I hope you’ll watch my post about the Shaklee 180™ Program and my first month results and how I make my favorite Strawberry/Blueberry smoothie!!! My daughter makes a cameo — and no lie, she does that every time I make a smoothie in the blender!
I want to thank Ellen at Bad Word Mamafor nominating The Harried Mom for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. I had no idea awards like this existed – an award that is not based on votes and a popularity contest (I’ve never won one of those in my life!). I’m honored by this recognition because; to me at least, it means that someone found what I’ve been doing here humorous, helpful and/or inspiring. Talk about an ego boost! I think this is a great encouragement for any blogger out there.
Now, I haven’t been blogging as long as these ladies have, but I do remember the days – at least on Facebook and email – of passing lists and questionnaires around “tagging” each other and then either laughed, smiled or cried as I read my friends answers. I always thought they were fun and I was always surprised about “new” things I would learn about my friends.
If you are always on the go like myself – between commuting to and from work, chauffeuring kidlets to various play dates, running errands, watching sports practices/games or even dance class – it’s practically impossible to find a safe and reliable WiFi connection to use your smart phone or tablet devices.
So when I was sent a NetZero 4G Hotspot to try, I was very excited! The NetZero 4G Hotspot is a fantastic device that provides a portable, super fast and secure internet connection without the worry of public Wi-Fi hoarders, which means you can be “plugged in” wherever you go. It can power up to eight internet enabled devices such as computers, phones and iPads all at once. The Hotspot itself is both compact and durable and has a battery life of up to 6 hours.

A big Harried Mom “hello!” to all the new SITS friends stopping by today, I’m so glad you have decided to come by and check me out! For my regular posse, please don’t be alarmed by the above acronym-I didn’t catch anything!
Yes, I totally rocked it out on Friday night…This photo was taken at 10 pm, so first off – it was a late night for me, sporting my PJs, hair piled on top of my head, catching up on some blog writing and yes, that is a basket of laundry that I washed, fluffed and folded. Hold me back, I’m a total wild woman!
