Sometimes Others Know Best

27 May

My daughter and husband were tired of seeing my gray and black workout clothing everyday! Image

So for Mother’s Day they bought me some new workout clothes in bright colors.  My first thought when I opened the presents was “I don’t wear purple, I don’t wear red…eek!” But because they had given them to me for Mother’s Day, I decided I better try to be nice and appreciative.

And I ended up loving the bright new colors and have gotten a lot of compliments.  So sometimes others know best!  We all get stuck in our ways at times and need someone else to pull us out of our comfort zone.  These are the times when I end up getting the most out of life.  When I take a chance and do something a bit different from my usual routine.

P.S. Check out the website Lorna Jane for fun workout clothes.

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

30 Apr

A few fun and different Mother’s Day gift ideas:

On the NRDC Green gifts website, you can help support the local and organic food movement while also buying a great cookbook for your mom, grandmother, aunt or sister!  Image

Two other cute ideas I saw on one of my favorite blogs (Progressive Pioneer) are Jenny Kostecki-Shaw’s new project, the Mother’s Wisdom Deck.

And a fun project to make with your kids — May Day cones — which are traditionally for May 1 but I am thinking they make a cute Mother’s Day present.
