Upcoming stuff :-)

Just peaking in during my week break from blogging to announce a couple things.

1. I’ve been busy working on my Preparing for Pregnancy e-course and am really excited with how it’s coming together! (though my brain is rather overloaded with information!) With my continued work on it, I may be around a bit less than normal, so if any of you out there would like to contribute a guest post, send your ideas my way!

2. Because I don’t have quite enough going on I also decided to join Katie in her “Getting the Junk Out” challenge. Why? Because she was looking for someone to talk about getting rid of refined sugar. And since that is so my ‘thang’, I jumped at the chance. (which by the way – how are you all doing on staying away from sugar? I don’t want to tell you how I’ve been today {hiding face} but overall I’ve been doing really great!

Now, over the next couple months or so Katie has set up a great list of bloggers, each talking about getting rid of some sort of ‘junk’.

Get out your calendars, ladies and gentlemen bloggers, and mark down the dates for a 10-week rotating carnival called Spring Cleaning: Get the Junk Out!

We’re going to spring clean here at Kitchen Stewardship in a unique way.  Instead of focusing on your physical space, we’ll look at a myriad of issues that you may want to get out of their diets, cleaning cupboards, bad habit collections or mental baggage. Each week, a different blog will host a theme that fits their mission and a linky for YOU to link up any pertinent posts.

Related posts for the linky might include a tips post, a recipe, a personal story of getting that issue “out”, or even questions you have about the issue.

Here’s the list of hostesses and weekly themes so you can plan to participate. There will be giveaways for each week.  New and old posts welcome!

  1. 3/23 Katie @ Kitchen Stewardship: antibacterial soap/bleach
  2. 3/30 Amy @ Simply Sugar and Gluten Free: gluten
  3. 4/6 Beth @ Fake Plastic Fish: plastic food containers
  4. 4/13 Donielle @ Naturally Knocked Up: refined sugar
  5. 4/20 Micaela @ Mindful Momma: parabens
  6. 4/27 Lenetta @ Nettacow: food additives
  7. 5/4 Kelly the Kitchen Kop: CAFOs
  8. 5/11 Laura @ Heavenly Homemakers: pesticides
  9. 5/18 Mandi @ Organizing Your Way: clutter
  10. 5/25 Claire @ Saving Money Plan: debt

So it should be lots of fun, and there will even be areas to link up your own poast about the same subject so you all can play along!

That is all.

I’m off to my word doc. again.

Not twitter – I promise.
