Our First GIVEAWAY!!



That's right, we are having our first ever Nothing But An Apron giveaway this month, in honor of Mother's Day! Because no one knows cooking and cleaning better than Mom, and Mom also knows better than anyone the need for a super-easy way to spend the morning relaxing as a family, and she also definitely knows when it's time for a nice hot relaxing bath.

So Lizzie and I are giving up the goods. She is donating a lovely gift basket of her handmade, all-natural bath bombs, body butters, and other luciousness; I am donating three flavors of my all-natural, organic, gluten-free pancake/waffle mix, and I'll even throw in the real maple syrup to boot. Believe me, you want in on this draw!

To enter, leave a comment on this post. Each comment will get you one entry in our draw, to be done on Mother's Day by Random.org. But you get DOUBLE points - two points per comment - when you tell us something you learned from a mom. Doesn't have to be your mom, just somebody's mom, and it doesn't necessarily have to be housekeeping-related.

Share this around, encourage your friends to enter (maybe they'll share the goodies with you if they win!), and spread the word! And good luck!

    Sounds like a great giveaway, but I'm not sure that you want to have your readers submit endless comments simply to increase their chances of winning. I think that you'll get a lot of superfluous comments. You could get a lot of comments from one single person who really wants to win!

    Most giveaways allow you to comment once for one entry. Sometimes there are other ways to get bonus entries, but usually the number of entries per person is limited to some amount.

    That's what I'd do if I were you (restrict the # of entries per person). Just a suggestion ... and thanks for the giveaway!

  5. One of the best things my mom ever told me is that nobody can make you feel bad about yourself without your consent! It's a great piece of advice to take to heart.

  8. Ohh I want bath stuff and pancake mix!
    What I learned from my mother is...a cup of tea while soaking in the bathtub will cure anything, from colds to broken hearts. "tea in the tub" is my go-to remedy for anything.

  11. Count me in :)

    My mother taught me that when I wanted to get lint off my clothes to put them in the freezer first and then use a razor. Works like a charm! She's very practical, my mother.

  13. woohoooo I hope I win!!!
    My Mom taught me so many things, its hard to narrow it down. But the most important thing she taught me was to try and be humble even in the most dire situations, because everything will work itself out eventually.

  15. Something I learned from my mother-in-law is to always find something to enjoy in what you're doing. Appreciate the good things in life and be positive.
