Fall Bloggy Giveaway for our 500th post!

by Tiffany in Tidbits

I am participating in The Fall, Y’all Bloggy Giveaway! This giveaway is also a celebration of my 500th post!!! Wow…it has been a great ride getting this blog up and running.

I started it just a hair over two years ago and with over 300 feed subscribers and twice as many visitors each day this blog has come a long way.

Looking back here are some of my favorite posts:

I wrestled with my decision to get Chemo in Is Chemo Part of Natural Family Living.

My son started eating lunch at school and we turned to the Laptop Lunchbox system.

I discussed making healthy and frugal school lunches too.

Many people responded to my sharing my son’s vaccine injury.

One of my greatest hits has been the post about BPA Free Sippy Cups….followed closely by the post about BPA Free Baby Bottles.

I have met many great people along the way and many great bloggers. Here is to another 500 posts!

For the contest I am giving away two products that are perfect for the natural family AND perfect for the cold weather months that are upcoming. One product is for mom and one is for a child.

Just leave a comment on this post telling me why you LOVE this blog and you could win:

tutuwhite.jpg1. A Pair of organic, mantra knee socks from Maggie’s Functional Organics that say “I am Calm”. They are size 9-11 and a natural cotton color.


2. A pair of organic, natural colored BabyLegs leg warmers. These are a HUGE hit in our home and I am sure they will be in yours too. They can be worn by either a boy or a girl.

They would make excellent Christmas presents too!

A winner will be chosen at random on November 5th. Open to US and Canadian residents only. Thanks everyone for making this blog rock!

And make sure to check out the other fall giveaways here.

  • Beth @ The Natural Mommy

    I don’t understand why you don’t have THOUSANDS of people wanting those babylegs. Because I have been DROOLING over them for weeks now as the weather turns colder. I dread the thought of having to put pants on those bulky cloth-diapered butts. Because you know they run around pantsless. All day. Every day.

    Hope I win!

  • Kristin

    Thanks for all the natural tips!

  • Tori

    I love your site AND your giveaways!!! This is definitely my favorite resource for eco-chic living!

  • I really like your blog because like you, I am trying to eliminate all the “stuff” harmful chemicals, pesticides, nitrates, MSG, parabens, propylene glycol (I could go on and on). I have basically resorted to buying most things organic and Whole Foods is my friend! : ) I am so glad I found your site. I’m going to bookmark it! I am so sorry about your son’s vaccination injury. I have had so much difficulty making a decision about vaccines. I have a 4 month old and I have been vaccinated him selectivly and I’ve actually slowed the schedule down. It has been a huge struggle with the 2 Peds I’ve been to but so far all we’ve had is some fevers after the shots. Anyway, sorry for the long comment but I am so glad I found your site.

  • Marlene

    I stumbled upon your blog through Rocks in Her Dryer’s contest. I had no idea that simple things such as bottles and sippy cups could be so harmful to small children. Why would companies make such poor quality products. People are willing to pay for better quality products to make sure their children are healthy.

    I bookmarked your site. Stop by mine – I am having a giveaway as well.
