Totally Desperate Mom {Book Giveaway}

I have a special Giveaway today in honor of Mother's Day!

My friend Wendy (aka the Totally Desperate Mom)
wrote a book a couple years ago & it is a MUST read for all you Mama's (or Mama's-to-be) out there.
This book will make you laugh, make you cry & make you feel better about yourself.
It is a QUICK read & an EASY read! Perfect for us busy Mama's out there!

My husband Kevin & Wendy grew up together....friends since Elementary School!
Wendy was a former Hollywood Actress, you may recognize her from the TV Show, The New Lassie.
Wendy is one of my favorite people & I am so thankful for her friendship.
(and I am thankful that her girls that are buddies with my girls)

Wendy is wife to Shiloh and they just celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary this past week.
She is a busy mom of 3 kiddos (and Baby Faith in Heaven)
Wendy is an extremely gifted speaker & this weekend she spoke at FOUR church services.
Yes, Mother's Day weekend and Wendy was out there speaking. Rockstar.

Thankful to have a friend like Wendy. Love it when she runs on the trail behind my house at yells at me to come talk to her. 
She's all kinds of awesome.  And so is her book. 
Her book is a perfect baby shower present or present for any mom.
The last 10 baby showers I have been to, I have given her book as part of the present!

 Wendy will send THREE lucky people a signed copy of her book (or the e-version of her book) 
You have THREE chances to win.

Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day. 
I know this day can be hard for people.

Maybe you lost your mom and this day brings up loneliness & sadness.
If you are a mom, I hope you were able to relax & get pampered.
If you aren't a mom yet, but are longing to be one, I am praying for you.
