$50 Gift Certificate to
2 Winners!

Two winners will each receive a $50 gift certificate to  So how do you participate in the Mommy Mia Monologues Summer 2013 Giveaway?  It’s simple.  Because we want to hear about the must-have items and products that are in your life, all you have to do is comment on this post and share with us the must-have items in your life (please see below for more details).

What inspired this Giveaway?  Well, yesterday I was trying to think of all the “Must-Have” items for mommy (a deserved change of pace from our Top 25 Must-Have Newborn and Baby Items  post).  I had a million ideas on my “favorite things,” but I narrowed it down to five  –  five of my current must-have, favorite items that I frequently use (see list below).  These five products make my life significantly easier and/or better and make me a happier person on a daily basis.  Here is that list:

Top 5 Current Must-Haves
by Mommy Mia Monologues

1.  Roomba Robotic Vacuum
Link:   Roomba Robotic Vacuum

I am in love with our Roomba Robotic Vacuum.  It leaves beautiful vacuum lines in our carpets for me to see when I get home, and you  should see the dust and dog hair that the Roomba picks up from our floors on a  daily basis – it’s incredibly gross yet extremely fascinating  all  at the  same time.  I love it.

2.  Sketchers Women’s Work Shoes (Secretly Tennis Shoes)


I have two pairs of Sketchers shoes for work and I am obsessed with both them.  They are SO comfy!  The Sketchers Mary Jane Work Shoes and Pumps look like fancy work shoes from the outside but they feel like tennis shoes when you wear them.  If you add a Dr. Scholl’s insert to the liner, then I swear to you that I do not believe a more comfortable work shoes for women exists.  I’ve been buying Sketchers work shoes for 8-years now.  I use the Skechers for Work Women’s Abordene Work Boot during the winter time, and the Skechers Women’s Best Girl-Captains Mary Jane Pump during the warmer months.

3.  Simply Powder Foundation, by Cover Girl

I’ve been using CoverGirl Simply Powder Foundation since the 8th grade (that was a very long time ago!), and I sometimes have panic attacks that Cover Girl will discontinue it.  It covers  up all of my blemishes and takes away shine.

4.  Hemp Hydrating Shampoo


This shampoo, made by Hemp, Hemp Hydrating Shampoo, is one of the greatest smelling shampoos (in my opinion).  It is my current favorite, and I get happy every time I inadvertently smell my hair during the morning after my shower.  

5.   Fiskars 7870 Uproot Lawn and Garden Weeder – “The Dandelion Weeder”

If you have dandelions anywhere in your yard that you want to get rid of, then the Fiskars 7870 Uproot Lawn and Garden Weeder  might become like a health form of “crack” (i.e., super fun addicting) for you! This dandelion weeder is SO addicting-ly fun and awesome! I became obsessed with weeding dandelions from our yard this summer.  It works too!  It gets the dandelions from the root like no other!  I have so much fun with this thing that I seriously have contemplated sneaking over to our next-door neighbors’ house late at night with a flashlight and plucking out all of their dandelions from their lawn.  

Now, it’s your turn to share your favorite things!


If you can’t already tell, I feel quite passionately about these five products  (listed above), and now I want to hear the products that the readers at Mommy Mia Monologues are equally as passionate about.  What do you consider to be your “Must-Have” products that help make your life easier/better/happier?  Share your answer in the comment section and then on Thursday, August 8, 2013, we will randomly select and announce the two winners, who will each get a $50 Gift Certificate to Amazon.  Good luck!

Gift cards will be distributed via email. Be sure to check back on August 8 (8/8/2013) for the announcement of the winners!
