Platinum is hosting a Ladies Night Out!

Spring Fling! 

Platinum Hair Salon was VERY generous to MOM Prom this past year.   I would like to pay it forward by sharing out their Spring Fling Event.  I also get my hair cut there by Pricilla!  She is amazing!  If you would like to learn more about Platinum please Click Here

Please Welcome...Rebecca & Sarah!


Just a quick update for everyone, real estate is going well.  Really well.  Which is awesome, totally not complaining, but it doesn't leave a ton of time for writing posts, etc on this site.  The great news though, I've recruited some help!  Rebecca & Sarah will be helping to run the day to day of the site, posting, advertising, etc.  So who are these awesome ladies?  Check out below!

Rebecca is a mom of two and is currently a stay at home mom. Before she had children, Rebecca was a teacher in the Chester Upland School District and at Collegium Charter School. She also worked at Drexel University as an Assistant Director in Admissions. When she became a SAHM she new that she had to get involved in her community and she found the MOMS Club of Media. After being involved she took the role of President and started MOM Prom with fellow blogger Sarah. Along with the MOM Prom team they have raised over $15,000 for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and local families. Rebecca is excited to be part of the Delaware County Mom’s team!

Sarah is a stay at home mom of two. Prior to being home she was a counselor for at-risk youth in alternative education programs and worked in Wrap-Around Services. Not being from the area, and wanting to get out and meet other moms, she joined the Moms Club of Media and has been active in the club as well as serving as President. Sarah is looking forward to joining the team and connecting with more Delco mothers.

Pleygo-Rent Lego Sets!

As  my son sat begging for yet another new Lego set yesterday, I suddenly remembered I had read about Pleygo months ago, but forgotten about it!  Never heard of Playgo?  Well if your child loves Lego's as much as mine & can put together a set in no time, read on!

Pleygo lets you rent Lego sets, shipping takes 2-3 days & is included in your monthly membership. Membership prices range in price from $15 per month & they're currently offering a free trial, click HERE for more info! Now, if you're like me, you're worried about being charged for lost pieces, but they've thought of that too...normal loss up to 15 pieces, you won't be charged an additional fee!  You can just put together the set, send it back & get a new set and they sanitize the pieces before sending them out again!

The set he wanted this week cost us $22+ taxes...and he put it together in less than an hour.  Pleygo makes sense for us, so he can spend hours putting sets together!  My little guy is 6 (and a half, don't forget the half) and is constantly building, so for us, Pleygo makes a lot of sense!

Has anyone done Pleygo? I'd love to hear if it went well for you!
