I'm a South Florida Parenting "Mom Approved Panelist". What does that mean?

We have some exciting news to share with you on Newsy Parents! South Florida Parenting Magazine published by the Sun Sentinel has named me as one of the their 12 Mom Approved Panelists.

What does that mean for me? It gives me honor, prestige and acknowledgement as one of South Florida's leading mom bloggers plus you'll find my articles in the magazine. I'm really excited.

You're probably thinking - "Okay, great. We're happy for you, but what does that mean for me?" It means you get the inside scoop on what parenting articles, contests (including this one that ends June 5) and events are coming up in the latest issue of South Florida Parenting Magazine. You receive discounts to events sponsored by South Florida Parenting Magazine like this Sunday's Baby and Toddler Fair. And, I'll give you my personal feedback through reviews on whether a certain product works and if it's worth the investment. Speaking of, have you read our latest one on a product that will make your summer outdoor gatherings cool and comfortable?

Now, I want to introduce the 11 other bloggers on the panel with me. We had the pleasure of being announced during an exclusive blogger networking event on a Carnival cruise ship on May 3, 2015. I documented our tour of the ship in this video, in case you're interested in seeing how you sleep, dine and play while cruising.
