Happy New Year 2013 + Two Readers Each Win a $25 Target Gift Card! :)



From our family to you and yours, have a Happy, Peaceful and Prosperous New Year!

I appreciate you all very much, especially to those who continuously come and visit Hip Mama's Place regularly- even on days when I can't post due to other concerns in my life. 

I really can't believe HMP is now nearing its 6th year anniversary (started in August 2007) and we are still here! I promise to continue to deliver on what I have started- being a cool, online place for moms, dads and grandparents today, this coming New Year 2013 and hopefully, forward for many years! 

Thank you so much again for your continued support, my dear readers! :)

To thank you all and to help me celebrate the coming New Year, comment up on this post and tell me what you'd like to improve on (anything in your life- household, job, relationships, etcetera) this New Year 2013. Two of you, lucky HMP readers, will each win a $25 Target gift card! Comments are open until January 6th, 2013 at 12MN, EST.  Please include your email address in your comment to contact you if you win. Contest open to addresses in the U.S. 50 states only.

Love,
Jocelyn

Mandy B said...

I'm a super busy mom of 5... and it seems in the past 2 years I have totally lost time for ME.. I am so great at making sure my kiddos have everything they need and are taking care of so well. But I neglect myself!!! My resolutin is to set aside MOM time! Time for me to do something good for myself every week. (get my nails done even though doing the dishes will mess em up, or going for a long kid free walk around the local park, or just sitting at starbucks and enjoying a cup of quiet coffee!) Ive relly lost that good connection with me... oh and the hubby can tag along too if he would like.. but he better be pampering me!!! hehe
