I know you're out there! I am thrilled to finally be able to give something back to one of my fabulous readers. I have truly appreciated all of your support over the last 2 1/2 years. Nothing would make me happier than to give a little something to each and every one of you, but this time it'll just be one winner.

I was recently approached by CSN Stores. I had the chance to either receive a product my self and review it for you, or to give you guys the opportunity to win... I went with the GIVEAWAY! YAY!

You can find pretty much anything you want on one of their sites, all at great prices. You truly won't believe the selection!

Who wouldn't want this gorgeous bar stool?:

My mom is great because there are 6 of us kids and she is absolutely amazing about keeping tabs on us all and making sure she touches base with everyone all the time. She pulls us all together and keeps us connected.

Being a mother is one heck of a job. No one really knows what the position is going to entail until they are elbows deep in diapers or trying to juggle a diaper bag, a baby carrier, breast pump, an oxygen tank, and those dang keys that always seem to be the last thing (and the hardest) to grab on the way out the door. The thing I always remember is that every mother is struggling to be the best they can whatever their situation is. Providing support for each other is what amazing moms do. That support and sensitivity along with our caring, sweet, but sometimes clueless husbands is what gets us through the days. I have several 'moms' in my life who have provided that support in so many ways and they are one of my biggest life lines. They are friends, parents, sisters, and relatives...all are very important to me. Thank you guys, and HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

I really like the idea of a jogging stroller! Such a luxury item, but oh man, wouldn't that be cool! I like the red Schwinn Free Wheeler 2008 Swivel Wheel Stroller. vroom, vroom

I've been staring at this comment box trying to figure out what words to use to tell you why my mom is wonderful.

It's harder than it sounds, but I'm going to give it a shot:

My mom is my best friend. Plain and simple. She was never my friend when I was younger. There was always that line that was drawn - I'm the mom, you're the kid.

Lots of my friends had hipster moms that wanted to hang out with us. My mom didn't. It used to hurt my feelings that she didn't want to go with us to the mall or sit with us at the movies, but now I know why.

She kept her distance, and was only my mom while I was growing up. It taught me to be the mother I am today and it helped me become the person I am in general.

Once I was older and out of the house, her and I were like peas and carrots. We go shopping together every Saturday, even if it's just to pick up a loaf of bread at the grocery store.

I talk to my mom at least once every single day. Even if I'm on vacation, I talk to her. I have to fill her in on every last detail!

I'm sure she'll never find this, but if she does: HELEN! I love you!

Jenn said...

I went to the CSN site and OH MY! is there a ton of stuff to chose from!

At first I went searching for luggage, but then I was all "who am I kidding? I want a kitchen gadget"!

I want the Hamilton Beach 10 cup food processor! I have so many kitchen gadgets, but I DON'T have a food processor!

My Mom is awesome! She has always been "there" for me. I know many others can say the same thing but for me to have my Mom in my corner has been wonderful as when times get tough she has a listening ear and great advice.

My mom has always been creative, and fun, and encouraged us to be the same. I'm sure learning to think creatively at a young age really helped make us better at solving problems as well as entertaining ourselves.

My mom gives so often to so many, so unselfishly. 4 1/2 years ago she sold her house to move in with her father to become his primary care giver. She cared for him through alzheimers (sp?), documenting the entire time in journals. She still made time to make sure to split her time between her 4 grandsons at their ballgames, school programs, and to babysit while her big kids took their spouses out for a night alone. I could continue, but am afraid I'll miss the deadline if I continue!
