What gifts do YOU give your kids teachers? And teachers, what do you like?

So it's that time of year again, a time I love, but also dread! I love buying gifts for my kids teachers because they are wonderful teachers and have all helped my kids so much! But, I dread wandering around the stores trying to find that perfect gift, something that they won't have 20 of already, like mugs, candles, bath and body stuff, you know!
Last year, I found really cute bookmarks at Hallmark, they were metal and had little apples hanging on the ends. I paired it up with a giftcard to Barnes and Noble and I think they enjoyed it! This year, the kids have their regular teachers, and then they each have 2-3 teachers for their areas that needed attention, so we're talking at least 8 gifts, which I know is going to get pricey! Unless, of course, you wonderful readers have some great ideas for inexpensive gifts?! I'd love all and any suggestions, and I've got about a week to get anything done that will need to be handmade. I thank you all in advance, this weekend is going to be a crazy one!

CSN Review... Coming Soon!!

I have been given a great opportunity to do a review for CSN, and I'm so excited! There are over 200 online stores to shop from, where you can find anything from a Sofa to a Space Heater! My biggest worry choosing just 1 item I want to review, lol!
So, whatever it be that you're looking for,  whether it be Shoes, Housewares, or something for Dad for Fathers Day, I'd say check out CSN Stores before heading anywhere else, you're bound to find what you need, AND at a great price!

And remember to check out my CSN Store review, coming soon!

Do you ajdust your bra straps all the time? Seem to be pushing and pulling all the time, trying to "fix" your bra? I know I am, and I'm probably not the only one! Seven out of 10 women are wearing the wrong size bra, which can result in an ill fit for the rest of their outfit, back and shoulder pain, as well as bruising and digging.

Well, my fellow readers, Playtex is here to save the day!

Happy Mother's Day!!!

First off, I want to say Happy Mother's Day to all the Mommys out there, I hope you have a wonderful day! My plans include going to Grandma's house for Dumplings and Saurkraut, one of my FAVORITE dinners!!! And during the day, hopefully it will be nice so the kids and I can go take a walk around Cosley Zoo, so rain, please STAY away!!!

I'm so proud to be able to call myself a Mom, especially to the 2 wonderful, beautiful children I have. My world is so much better because of them, just seeing their smiles every morning ( ok, well, mabye more like 20 minutes after I've waken them up!), makes me feel like if I've done nothing else right, I've done everything right with them! My son is a kind, polite, and definetly handsome little man, and I can't wait to see what the future holds for him, he is so full of dreams and ideas! And my daughter, well, she is the most beautiful little girl I've ever laid my eyes on, and she is so caring and full of love for everyone around her! I couldn't have been given 2 better children, and I thank my lucky stars every day that I get the priveledge of being their Mom!

So, again, to all the Mom's out there, Happy Mother's Day, I hope it's a beautiful one for you!!!!
