  • You've probably noticed that the Creme de la Creme is up...Adding many more to it daily therefore, I set up a box in the top left corner and when I add things to the post, I change the time and date.

  • PPD Connect is a new blog that was started last month to provide information on postpartum depression. Wanted to put this website out there because they have a lot of support resources and interesting blog posts.
  • Looking for an excellent distraction? MLO is going to be celebrating her first blogiversary on January 8th and will run a contest through February 8 - with prizes! Details will go up on January 8th on MLO Knitting.
  • Just because the holidays are over doesn't mean that shopping is over for the year. People still need gifts in life. Why not support your fellow stirrup queens and buy from Shop Mom or Pop? Shop thoughtfully this season and send on the link to anyone who wants to support the community by making their gift giving also make treatments or adoption possible.
  • If you notice another loading slow down or receive error messages for Stirrup Queens or Lost and Found, please let me know. Now I'm nervous every time I add anything to the side bar!

I'm desperately seeking others who have dealt with falling Progesterone levels in the first trimester. If you could post an SOS for me, I'd REALLY appreciate it.

Hi ladies! I am getting ready to start blogging again - we've had a lot of family stuff going on and I have been without a computer for almost 4 months. I just got a new laptop yesterday so hopefully I will be up and going again soon. Leah Catherine is doing wonderfully well and after some PTSD issues things are better with me. I didn't even realize my blog was password protected so I will go update that now. Thanks for thinking of me!
