Today we are excited to announce the AMAZING prizes we have for the winner of this contest.  After all, a SUPER mom deserves a SUPER prize package, and that’s what we have for her!  Drumroll please………


The Ultimate Pampering Package from Massage Heights

Our Super Mom winner will be entering the doors to relaxation and leaving her worries behind.  (Remember the amazing massages at our First Birthday Bash??)  Well, Massage Heights is gifting this special mom with the ultimate pampering package at their gorgeous, brand new location at Iowa River Landing, which will include a 1-hour massage, a 1-hour facial, and her choice of hot stone therapy or a relaxing foot scrub.  Need we say more?!  Every mom deserves a break, and we want our winning mom to feel special, relaxed, and stress-free (even if it’s only for a few hours).  {Our co-founder Sara enjoyed these services at Massage Heights this week, and will be sharing her experience on the blog next week.  Word of advice:  you WILL want to win this prize!}


213_gk_sign1_smA Refreshing New Look from Groovy Katz Salon

Every mom knows the feeling.  You walk into the salon, with a hat to cover your bed head and a fresh spray of perfume to cover up the spit-up that is bound to be lingering on your shoulder.  Two hours later, you walk out of the salon a new woman, your glistening locks shining in the sun as you do a double-take in the minivan rear-view mirror before you head home to mommyhood.  We all need those salon moments in our life, to feel beautiful and to remind us that we are women too, not “just moms”.  Well, thanks to Groovy Katz Salon (who also had a very popular booth at our First Birthday Bash), our Super Mom will be enjoying a new hair-cut, hair-color, and make-up application to refresh  her look and help her feel even more beautiful for Mother’s Day this year!  So exciting!

Inspire Motherhood Logo Circle2 Complimentary Tickets to the Inspire Motherhood Conference

After our Super Mom enjoys her relaxing day at the spa, and gets a brand new look from the salon, she needs somewhere to go, right?  We have that covered!  The winner will receive two complimentary tickets to the Inspire Motherhood Conference, coming to the Quad Cities (Davenport) on June 7th.  If you haven’t heard of the Inspire Motherhood Conference yet, be sure to click here and check it out!  As the title suggests, this event is all about inspiring moms.  With a mainstage speaker (who just happens to be Stephanie Flies, the head of our very own City Moms Blog Network!), numerous workshops (including Photography 101, Beauty Boot Camp, DIY Projects, Organization 101 and more!), a delicious lunch, pop-up shopping time, and a fashion show with Kiki La’Rue to top it off, this conference is sure to be a refreshing, enjoyable day for moms in Eastern Iowa and surrounding areas.  Tickets are on sale now, so get some mommy friends together and make a little road trip to the Quad Cities on June 7th!
