I’m Mommy-Blogging for SWA

by jessicaturner on May 8, 2009

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, Southwest decided it was the perfect time to introduce me as its official mommy blogger. I’m so thankful for this opportunity. Southwest has been my favorite airline since I first discovered it about six years ago and they have been wonderful to work with!

Here’s my first post: How Not to Go Nuts While Traveling with a Peanut. Elias and I also filmed a video of my tips in action, which you can watch here. (It was filmed a few months ago and it is incredible how much he has already changed!)

Win Free Tickets
Southwest and I have also worked together to create adorable My Peanut and I Fly Southwest buttons for moms (and dads/grandparents/etc.) to post to their blogs, Facebook profiles, etc. To sweeten the deal, if you post a button on your site between now and May 31, then leave a comment on this post, you will be entered to win a family four pack of tickets to fly anywhere Southwest flies! So go pick out your favorite button and enter to win. What do you have to lose?

Also, if you are new here, I want to say welcome! I won’t bore you with a ton of details, instead spend a little time browsing around and getting to know me and the great community that is on this blog. You will quickly learn that I love to:

talk about my new adventures as mommy of 10-month-old Elias

talk about my sweet and talented husband Matthew, who is a writer

scrapbook: mostly about Elias; also check out my project 365.

do giveaways like this one and review fun products.

ponder faith.

Have a great day!

Very cool! These are great tips. Is it bad that I’m wanting to borrow a baby just to use that stroller idea next time I fly?

(Just kidding – that would be very wrong).

May end up using Southwest as planning to do tour some of the USA next year maybe. Meet all these bloggers from ‘across the pond’… :)
