From the time we made construction-paper covered keepsake boxes for our moms the question has come up: what will we get our moms for Mother's Day?  Now that we're moms too, it's sometimes nice to ask, "What gift will I buy myself?" 

What are you getting your mom, your mother-in-law or the special woman in your life for Mother's Day?  What are you buying yourself?

 Hi Ladies!

I am from NJ and have been a member for awhile. I haven't posted much in this group, lately. BUt this post got me thinking of what to get my mom and sisters for Mother's Day. I went to the dress Barn page and found quite a few things under $50 that I think they will all love!

I buy gifts for my 3 sisters because they are the Godmother's of my 2 boys and love them to death.

My mom would love this handbag and she REALLY needs a new one!http://www.dressbarn.com/detail/studded-colorblock-tote/101819132/100

My sister who is super casual would love this shirt:  http://www.dressbarn.com/detail/textured-high-low-hoodie/101817916/152

I never realized how much great stuff they have. I always thought of it as a store for my grandma (I found stuff for her too!) but after looking online I was pleasantly suprised!

Hope you all have a GREAT Mother's day!!!

Now and then, it's nice to take the time to give our feet a special bath. Our feet work so hard for us, and more often than not, they take tremendous abuse. A foot contains 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments and 19 muscles and tendons. The average person can take as many as 10,000 steps a day and walk about 115,000 miles in a lifetime! (Source: American Podiatric Medical Ass'n.) Surely you'll agree that your feet deserve a bath of their own!!

Sweet Feet Bath is a divine tootsie blend to follow vigorous exercise, a long day of standing or just to pamper yourself. The ingredients, including selected essential oils, enliven your senses as they deodorize, pamper, soothe, and rejuvenate tired feet. You will need a large pan or footbath for this treatment. I use an old bus pan from a restaurant. This recipe is not for persons with diabetes, problems with cracked foot skin or other problems. Consult your health care provider for proper care.

Yield: Enough for 1 foot bath
Prep Time: This information will be added
Price Category: This information will be added
Difficulty Level: This information will be added
Shelf Life: This information will be added

Ingredients:
 water to fill a foot soak bin
1 cup Epsom salts
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon liquid chlorophyll
1 drop of tea tree essential oil
1 drop juniper berry essential oil
1 drop peppermint essential oil
 several marbles or smooth stones

Blending Procedure:

  1. Boil enough water to fill the bin. Remove from heat, and transfer to your foot soak bin, being careful not to burn yourself.

  2. Using a large spoon, stir in Epsom salts until dissolved. Test the water-salt mixture every few minutes until it reaches a comfortable temperature; this usually takes about 15 minutes.

  3. Add the vinegar and stir. Add essential oils last and swish well to incorporate. To use, wash your feet with your favorite non-detergent soap, and then soak them in this fragrant mixture for about 20 minutes to revive and refresh. You can place a layer of marbles or smooth stones in the water while you soak ... it's a nice feeling to move your feet around them during the soak. After the soak, see if you can convince a friend to give you a wonderful foot and ankle massage using shea butter or olive oil. Enjoy!

 I can honestly say I think I got the worlds best mom as well as mother in law and that includes my ex's mom! They are all very special ladies who make you feel part of the family from day one. (My ex's mom & dad still tells everyone that I'm their favorite dil!) They're all easy to buy for as every year they ask for the grandkids to pick out flowers to hang on their porches.

For myself I plan on going to the Dress Barn and buying a dress to wear not only for Mothers Day but also for my dd's wedding. It's an outside summer wedding that is dressy/casual. The wedding is over 3 hours away so no one other then dh and kids will have seen me in it. Great 2for 1 as money is extremely tight.

No amazing ladies in my life. As for myself..that is a day that I "run way". As far away as I can get from other perfect families having brunch or whatever. It is the most depressing day of the year.
