Voting is about to close for the 2016 Mom-Approved Awards!

awardsVoting is open for just a few more days in the 2016 Mom-Approved Awards! Voting ends Monday, August 22nd!

Vote for your favorite mom-friendly businesses in Northwest Arkansas. (CLICK HERE to vote online!)

We know from personal experience that the best recommendations are from our fellow mamas. If you want to know where the best places are to eat, shop, get a haircut, buy a car or go to preschool, ask another mom. She’ll know where to send you for the best stuff from the friendliest here to vote

Moms are often the CES of the family (Chief Executive Shopper), which is why it’s important to have a list of some of the best stores and services in the area. Your votes will help other moms (especially those new to the area) make more informed decisions, and it’s also a great way to recognize those local businesses and service providers who know how to treat a mama right.

Another BIG perk? When you fill out the survey (CLICK HERE TO VOTE NOW) you’ll automatically be entered to win $350 in gift cards for the “Unique Boutique Shopping Spree.” We put together a list of some of our favorite places to shop, and each of those boutiques has contributed a gift card. We’ll choose a name (at random) and that voter will receive a total of $350 in gift cards to use at these participating boutiques: (Click the name of each shop to visit their online stores.)
