10,000 Thank Yous!!! {+ Giveaway}

Over the past few months, we have noticed that our Facebook likes were climbing at a ridiculously rapid rate.  We had set a goal of reaching 10,000 likes by our second birthday in September, but as we hit 7000…then 8000…then 9000… we knew that we would be hitting that goal much sooner than we anticipated!  And while we would love to take all the credit and say that it was from some super extravagant social media campaign, the truth is – it is all because of YOU.  Our faithful followers, our loyal readers, the absolute best part of HMB.  You have rallied around us and spread the word about all that we are and all that we do.  And for that, we are overflowing with gratitude!

You see, each time you ‘like’ a picture, comment on a poll, click a link, or share a status with your friends – it is like you are giving us a great, big virtual high five and encouraging us to do our very best for all of the sweet mamas in our community.  And while words are kind of our thing {you know, we are bloggers after all!}…you have managed to achieve the impossible.  We.Are.Speechless.  So instead of trying to scramble over our words and pour over how thankful we are for each and every one of you, we figured that we should show our appreciation through one of our other specialties — an over the top GIVEAWAY!!!  Ready to find out all about it?  Okay, here goes…

One lucky mama is going to win a two night stay at the glorious JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort and Spa, redeemable anytime between August 1, 2015 – February 29, 2016.  {The perfect opportunity to take advantage of the lighter crowds or the AMAZING holiday festivities there!}  If you’ve been following HMB for any length of time, then you’ve probably heard us gush about just how amazing this resort is and ALL of the events and activities that there are to do there.  But just in case you need a little reminder, here are a few of our favorites…

  • Their stunning guest rooms are spacious and comfortable and make you feel like royalty.
  • With seven restaurant and lounge options, you won’t ever go hungry…and you won’t ever need to leave the property either.
  • They have a six-acre water park with multiple pools, a meandering river, and water rides that are a crowd-favorite for kids and adults alike.
  • On property, they also have a world-class spa with 30 treatment rooms and a service for everyone.
  • And if you’re a golfer, then you will be blown away by their two PGA TOUR, 18-hole TPC golf courses too!

Sound like the perfect family getaway?  It is!  Sound like a romantic vacation for you and your honey?  It’s that too!  Sound like an ideal girl’s weekend to escape and unwind?  You bet your high heels it is!  We cannot wait to see who wins this amazing prize and what kind of trip they plan, so enter below…and best wishes to YOU!!!

Kelly is the founder of Houston Moms Blog and has lived in this beautiful city nearly all of her life. She has a degree in education from Texas State University and was honored to teach special education for eight years to some of the cutest little kiddos you could ever meet. While teaching, Kelly met Cody – a tall drink of water and country boy to the core – and together, they fell in love, got married, and decided to start a family. In March 2011, they welcomed Hayes into the world, a silly but smart little boy with a story you have to read to believe. And in April 2013, their family was complete with the addition of Hadley, a super gregarious and oh-so-cute baby girl. Now, Kelly devotes her days to caring for her own little ones…and would not trade this new job of hers for the world! In her not-so-spare time, Kelly loves meeting up with her girlfriends for margaritas, failing miserably at Pinterest projects, and exploring this big old city with her two favorite little side-kicks in tow.
