I can barely contain my excitement as my dear friend Lisa nominated “Mynewfavoriteday” for best “All-around Mom Blog” on Parents.com.  As many of you know, my dream is to take ‘mnfd’ beyond these pages into new pages, public speaking and advocacy and this can only help push that along. I feel like I am awake in my dream right now!

Since I seem to be having some technical issues with making this very simplistic in a fancy badge outside of this post, I have made it easy if you would do me the biggest favor and click on this image to vote for us.

The only catch is that you have to register, so here’s the skinny on that:

  1. Fill out only the asterisk information.
  2. If you don’t want any follow up information uncheck all the boxes and click other.
  3. After you submit, then click on vote under the “My New Favorite Day” page.


I have a long way to go to catch up with the leader who is primarily a giveaways/informational site at 745 votes, but with your help and (maybe even your friend’s help:)) since you all helped me raise nearly $13,000 dollars for the March of Dimes back in April, I am sure with your help we can help others learn about ‘mynewfavoriteday” and help to make it ‘theirnewfavoriteday.’
Thank you so much!  If you just want to go to the link, here it is again, http://blog-awards.parents.com/blog-awards/mom_blogs/1197-my-new-favorite-day

About Shannon Pruitt from 'Mynewfavoriteday'

Welcome to 'mynewfavoriteday. This space is about gratitude and connecting through being open, vulnerable and real. I hope you will enjoy my take on motivation, inspiration and advocacy and will take the opportunity to tell me of your own thoughts and stories. Why I started 'mynewfavoriteday.' I am a childhood surviving, divorced, now happily married, IVF (and now natural pregnancy) success story, working mother of 2 amazing babies who were born 12 weeks premature. As life often seems to surprise you when you least expect it, we added another sweet baby girl M to our family in July of 2013. While our angel minis, Q and E are now 7 years old, our son, Q, has thrived while our daughter, E, has had a much more difficult journey. She is considered special needs and in September of 2012 was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Angelman Syndrome. And so, as she has grown, so do we as individuals and as family. How to help her, how to celebrate our differences while allowing ourselves to cope with the challenges that we never knew to expect. Thus, while much of this blog is based on our experiences (good and not-so-good), it is also based on how we must not let ourselves become victims of our circumstances but rather advocate in our own lives. A little bit about me and who I am. In my professional life I am a marketer in the Entertainment Industry; however, ‘mynewfavoriteday,’ was not born of entertainment or marketing but rather as a pathway to help myself and others as we try to define who we are as parents, family members, spouses, friends, colleagues and people. I believe in never judging a book by its cover. Every cover is different, and no matter what your cover looks like, you never know how someone's book is written. Like mine. From the outside, you might never know what truly makes me who I am or what I believe. This blog explores the pages on the inside of my book. My vulnerabilities, fears, happiness, and all my triggers through the lens of being grateful for all the amazing blessings I know I have received but sometimes forget in the challenges of daily life. Thanks again for dropping by. I hope you will come back, subscribe, comment, share, and/or just hang out and be inspired or motivated to make each day for yourself or someone else 'anewfavoriteday.' By being here, you have certainly helped to make it mine. xo, Shannon
