Spring Break --- Summer Camp - try Camp Jam!

Camp Jam Rock N Roll summer camp is bringing its "Spring Tour" back to Dallas/Ft. Worth this March, and this year they are getting moms more involved!

In addition to the annual Rock Solo Contest and Open Jam Session for young musicians, they are hosting a "My Mom Rocks" live band karaoke contest where moms will be battling it out on stage with a real live band backing them (instead of a karaoke machine) and will get a chance to win their son or daughter a free week to Camp Jam summer camp and $100 spa gift certificate.

It's part of a 16-city country-wide tour, which is coming to the Dallas area on March 7 with 2 events and locations. Moms can choose one of the following songs including Hit Me With Your Best Shot, I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll, Satisfaction and Sweet Child O’Mine on where they can practice before getting a shot to win.

Sign ups begin this week and walk-ups are welcome too. Should be a really fun event for the family - and did I mention FREE? It's hard to find free family events these days!

Attention Bargain Hunters

Recently we stumbled apon this awesome concept - Mama Bargains.

If you haven't heard of it HAVE to go check it out. It's addicting! They search high and low for the most sought after trendy mommy and baby items and bring them to you at 50-80% off retail. That's some seriuos savings!

They only sell one item at a time on their site - and once it's gone - it's gone and another item replaces it on their site. Seriously, check it out! As I type this blog post they have a Grobag on there...but they're almost all gone - so who knows what great product is just around the corner :)

Giveaway: Pot-Tee Prize Potty Training System

Who ever said Potty Training was easy? Please let me talk to that person - because I can tell you from my own personal experience --- it is not! I am currently in the process of potty training my two year old daughter. It's hard - something I was not anticipating. I mean my daughter is smart and doesn't like to be wet or dirty - she tells us when she is going and lays down easily for diaper changes --- so I seriously did not anticipate World War III breaking out in our house over potty training...well, I've tried everything - friends have said, "use M&Ms", "just tell her this is how it's going to be and sit her on the potty", "encourage her - tell her she's a big girl", "don't use pull-ups - go straight for undies", "use a little potty chair" -- and the list goes on. And I can say that none of it - absolutely NONE of their advice has helped me...any. My daughter shows no interest in going on the potty. She knows how - b/c occassionally she will do it...but definitely not regularily.

GIVEAWAY DETAILS: So when Pot-Tee Prize contacted The Trendy Mommy a few weeks ago - offering to give away one of their Pot-Tee Prize systems to one of our readers - I said YES! definitely! Please help out some other mom that is going through what I'm currently experiencing. So guess what ladies --- one of you will be getting your very own Pot-Tee Prize System. Just leave us a comment telling us why you deserve to win! Contest ends January 21st at midnight.

The Original Pot-Tee Prize Grab Bag gives you all the tools you’ll need to easily and effectively potty train your child in one convenient, cheerful package. Naturally, this critical step in your child’s early development can be stressful and time consuming. This system adds structure to the potty training process creating a positive and memorable experience for you and your little squirt. The Pot-Tee Prize System includes:
  • Whimsical Sticker Chart
  • GuideFilled with proven facts to help ease you and your child through the transition
  • Diploma
  • Pot-Tee Prizes

Relish! Menu Planner & Giveaways!

Relish is a weekly menu planner aimed to help busy families put easy meals (with a gourmet twist) on the table every night. There is no fuss here. It’s an easy step by step process that you can do every weekend to prepare for a trip to the grocery store. You choose the entree and dessert meals that sound appealing and presto- your grocery list and menus are ready for you to rock and roll (and available to print out as a pdf to make life extra simple, too)! The ingredients needed for all recipes are separated into categories making it easy for you to move around the grocery store without forgetting something, which we all always do! The breakdown of ingredients uniquely identifies “what you may need but already have” which eliminates the possibility of buying double of something you already have in the pantry or refrigerator.

As a trendy new mommy, hoping to fit back into my “trendy jeans” one of these days, it is important to watch the fat and calorie intake during the day. With relish, every meal has the nutritional facts posted below the menu. The recipes provided by Relish! keep health conscious moms right on track, utilizing fresh, healthy ingredients. My first weeks’ menus ranged from 200 to 415 delicious calories. It can be said that my time using Relish! meals was full of flavorful meals that even my picky-eater husband enjoyed.

It is a beautiful thing to be able to have HEALTHY meals planned each week for my family without worrying about searching through cook books and forgetting essential ingredients. For $7 dollars a month, this weekly menu planner plus monthly freezer menus and more is great to settle any hungry household.

I feel like a GOOD mom and wife now that I am using Relish! Forget boring grilled chicken with canned peas, this menu planner brings “spice and simplicity” back to the kitchen.

**To recognize Relish! as a favorite of Trendy Mommy, we are having a GIVEAWAY!

Two Trendy Mommy readers will receive a 12 month subscription to Relish! with silcone cooking tongs from Crate & Barrel, too! In order to enter, you need to visit, check out the demos, and sample the menus. Then, leave a comment here about what you had for dinner last night and why this would be a great tool for you! Contest ends December 22nd at midnight - winner will be announced on

So, rejuvenate your Trendy Kitchen and check out the Relish! website for more information.
