Now That You Have Baby Fever, What's Next?

Thanks to everyone who joined in with Rockin' the Bump last month and Rockin' the Baby this month. 

We had over 200 mamas join in each time. If you haven't had a chance to check out the links, be sure to do so! You'll be ooh'ing and ahhh'ing, plus getting to know some new bloggers! 

Since I've been accused of being a baby pusher and the cause of a baby boom in nine months, I thought that for our link-up in August, we'd take a different direction. I'll get to that in just a minute, after I tell you who won the prizes from Rockin the Baby!

Prize #1: $50 Demi Bella Tee from Chic Mama: #119 The Adventures of Fussypants and Little Miss

Prize #2: $50 gift certificate to shop at Storkie: #8 Mama Marchand's Musings

Prize #3: $50 gift certificate to shop at Lauren Nicole Gifts:  #151 Mommy of a Monster

Prize #4: $75 to Bellflower Books:  #186 Mommy This and That

A big thank you to our sponsors! Winners will be emailed today. 

Button once again by Jess at The Frilly Coconut who is inthe middle of a totally new look for me. On Wordpress. Button will be grab-able soon!

Now, for next month, I thought we'd take a break from making everyone's ovaries ache and do a throwback to a typical school assigment.  With a twist, of course. 

What did you do on your summer vacation?  Yes, even I did this to my students when I was teaching. 

Only this time: it's fun and a whole lot easier! Post a pic(s) that shows  you/your family having fun this summer!  It could be your kids eating ice cream, summer baseball, a family vacation, or even your glass of wine at the end of a long summer day.  Whatever says "Summer Fun" to you. 

Then come back August 8-15th  and link up!

This is perfect timing for this new link-up. We have vacation next week so I will have tons of pictures! Also the week of the link-up my kids will be out of town all week! Woo-hoo!

I admit, your last linkup party on Rockin the Baby did result in some baby fever. Luckily, I am so done with childbearing and I've been telling that internal mental baby lover to shut it. ;-)

ooh, a makeover? how exciting! I've been thinking of doing one too...and moving to WP, but my laziness has so far not made either of those things happen...
and I guess I've gotta bring my camera to Disney next week for the next link up since pictures of me yelling at my kids all summer probably wouldn't go over well

i missed the last 2 link ups! you should do a comparative link up of our own baby pics with the baby pics of our babes... to see if they look like us! that would be funny.

Ha ha.. when I first glanced at your newest button I thought it said "Summer TAN Show Off".. and my first thought was, well I have a nice tan, but it's NOT that great!

Great link ups, chica... Keep 'em coming! :)

No offense, but I did not join or look at either because that would mean I would have had to go back through all my bump/baby photos and get a raging case of baby fever.

Sooooo don't want that right now. Maybe later?

I'll link up in August though.

p.s. SO excited to see your new look on WP =)
