Say It Forward – Week 33: Today’s loyal commentor is Shannon from The Mommy Files.

ShannonShannon, a stay at home mom of three young boys, maintains a fun blog that’s chock full of giveaways, reviews and chances to win some fun products.

But there is more to Shannon than just fun reviews and giveaways. She has an adorable family, she likes to laugh, and she gives great advice.

Shannon describes herself this way: Hello, I am Shannon. I am a stay-at-home [mom] of 3 beautiful and energetic little boys! I am married to the love of my life who is supportive in everything I do. We met while attending a Community College in California. I was talking to someone about living with my parents in a retired community and how there were no young people around to talk to. He “stepped in” and said he knew exactly how I felt (since he lived with his grandparents for many years), and we began talking and haven’t stopped since.

We started dating and were engaged a year later. We were married in November of 1999 (going on our 10 year anniversary soon)! After 5 years of marriage, completing college, and finding a full-time job, we learned of a new blessing that would soon become a part of our family. Our oldest is now 5 years old and will be starting Kindergarten in the Fall. We were blessed with 2 more healthy and wonderful boys – ages 3 and 1.

I love my family dearly and am thankful for the blessings and new friends that blogging has brought into my lives. Who would have ever thought I would have the opportunity to get involved with so many wonderful companies, try so many wonderful products, and make so many great friends?!

I love so many things in life. I love my family! I love chocolate! In my spare time (hmmm..what spare time?), I love to scrapbook, bake, and watch movies! I love my blog and the people I’ve met!

Thank you, Shannon, for providing us, your readers with the chance to read about and win so many wonderful products. And thank you for sharing your life with us as well!

It’s great to know that stay at home moms can not find an outlet through the internet but can connect to each other miles away.

I absolutely ADORE Shannon. She is such a sweetheart, she has the greatest reviews – they are honest and thorough – and her giveaways are always so much fun! Plus I love reading about her family, her boys (all FOUR of them) are so adorable. She works so hard to make her blog something that is enjoyable to everyone.
I’m so glad you featured her, it is WELL-DESERVED!!
