Time Out For Moms Challenge Linky Party

Time Out For Moms on Simply Modern Mom

***This giveaway is closed. Thanks to all who entered. Hope you had some fun me-times!***

On Monday I announced the Time Out For Moms challenge. Today I’m letting you know what prizes are in store for you. To read an example of Time Out For Moms, you can read my time out story.

This challenge is sponsored by Amy R. an independent stylist for Stella & Dot . It is the perfect jewelry gift for Mother’s Day for you and any other mothers in your life. Stella & Dot jewelry has been fashioned by many celebrities and featured in tons of fashion magazines. I fashion my Sophia Cluster Ring (pictured below) and get comments on it all the time. I also love their customizable charms. I could look at their site or catalogs for hours just lusting after their lovely jewelry.

And the cutest thing is Stella & Dot just came out with a girls jewelry line that is to die for. And it’s so affordable for such great quality jewelry. If you have a daughter or granddaughter you’ll want to remember this for their birthdays. And if you don’t have a daughter, you’ll want to buy it anyway in hopes to have a daughter or granddaughter one day. It’s that adorable.

So… You want to know what you can win by taking some time out for yourself? One winner will win this set of Charlize Teardrop Earrings. And a second winner will win this Coral Bloom Flower Ring. Lucky you! And please visit our sponsor’s website. You won’t be disappointed.

If you want to order your Stella & Dot jewelry for Mother’s Day, Simply Modern Mom readers get an exclusive flat rate shipping of $5.95 on any order with the code “Fran Frugalista” when prompted for your trunk show hostess. Thanks to our sponsor, Amy with Stella & Dot!

    I had to take a half day off of work for an appointment, and instead of cleaning when I got home, I sat in my craft room and scrapbooked until I had to pick my daughter up from school. It was SO relaxing… and quiet!!!

  • Mandi

    For my Time out, I dropped the kids off at school and instead of going to the gym…I came home and went back to sleep on the couch and slept until 11 am !!! It was a much needed break in my usually busy schedule!

  • Amy

    For my time out, I went out for drinks with the girls, with no talk about our significant others. Anytime a guy approached one of us, we told them that this was girls’ night, no boys allowed! 🙂 We don’t get together often enough, so it’s really nice to just laugh and chat with the girls

  • Alysha

    Went out with the girls, first time in I don’t know HOW LONG!! It was so fun to be able to get away from the hustle and bustle for just a little bit.

  • Teri

    On a cool and cloudy day I made myself a yummy cup of hot chocolate, sat down at the computer and read the blogs I follow, WITHOUT interruption! It was wonderful, a great “time out” for a busy mom.

    I have had a really stressful week – so my Time Out was my morning runs with my two friends and training partners. Have to get up at 5 am to do thisn but it is really as much a social hour as a workout. I also went shopping at the Goodwill. Really one of my favorite activities, and it is bliss to be able to go by myself 🙂

    I sat a read a book all by myself for a couple of hours. Hubby took all four kids and I read. Then when they got home, I went to bed a read…It was so fun…

  • Jeanine

    I finally finished reading a novel I had only gotten through a few pages of and began journaling again.

    I went shopping with my sister and my husband stayed home with ALL of the kids (our two boys and my sisters two boys). I got my hair done and got to buy lots of new clothes for myself!

    I’ve just found your page and I LOVE it! I’ll be going to church for my time out and pray a prayer of Thanksgiving for the joy of being a Mom and Grandma. Best wishes to all of you.
