Her Time for Baby Giveaway!

Written by Leslie Means

To kick-off our launch we’d love to offer our readers a chance to win a $250.00 prize from Time for Baby!

To enter, simply leave a comment on this post.  Let us know what you’re most excited about on Her View From Home!  If you like Time for Baby on Facebook, you’ll get a double entry!!

Contest ends at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 27th.

Hmm…what would you buy with $250 bucks to Time for Baby!  I would buy one of these (or maybe several) FOR SURE!

I KNOW!  Crazy cute diaper bags.  I’m not even joking – I would use these now as a regular bag/purse. 

Good Luck – and THANK YOU for being here!

      Hey gals, What a great site. Her view From Home is going to be a hit. I would have loved this when I was raising my 4 boys. But do find it will still be fun and Inspiring. I will be telling my 2 daughter-in-laws about you and get them involved. Thanks for sharing and being so honest and willing to share. I’m a grandma now and hope to keep up with you all & able to use things I learn from you gals. Best of Luck in this venture.

    Excited to see what you guys will do with this! Have had fun reading a few of your articles so far! Enjoyed watching Leslie on t.v. and enjoyed teaching Cheyenne at FCS! I would LOVE to win the Time for Baby gift certificate, so I can give it to my god-daughter. Her mom is a teacher and her dad is also a teacher, but unemployed…and currently staying home with their daughter, Ella! He is hoping to get a teaching job soon – so that his wife can become the stay home parent. I stayed home with my girls and know that living on one income is not easy! This is why I’d LOVE for them to have the gift certificate to get whatever their little Ella needs at Time for Baby! Awesome store – awesome website – awesome giveaway! THANK you very much for offering it! :) Good luck on your new venture! – Jolene

    I’m so excited to finally have a website devoted to women in rural areas, especially Nebraska. I love couponing and trying new recipes, but it’s so hard to try to follow blogs from other areas, because we don’t have everything they do and they don’t have everything we do. I’m excited to check out your blog!!! THANK YOU!!!

    • http://www.ellabbella.com Leslie

      Yea!!! We feel the same way! There isn’t anything for rural areas – so we decided to change that. So excited about all of our feature writers and everyone who helps make this site a success! Thank YOU!! ~Leslie

  • Karen Shultz

    I’m absolutely THRILLED for this new site! We know Leslie vicariously through her husband and other friends, and from reading about the other gals, this is going to be a stunning trio! I love the Christian foundation and positive outlook that is presented. We have needed a grounded, sensible site like this for ages that represents “The Good Life”, the women of our region and their interests!

    I also know MANY of your sponsors/advertisers/supporters and you have done a tremendous job of choosing people with strong ethics, business sense and caring hearts to partner with and have as contributors. Starting right here with Shauna with your first ‘official’ giveaway!

    Thank you girls and best of everything! God bless!

    • http://www.ellabbella.com Leslie

      Karen – thank you for such kind words! We are thrilled and can’t wait to show off Central and Western Nebraska to the rest of the world!! ~Leslie
