Simple ideas sure to put a smile on Mom's face (this Sunday, hint hint).

Did you wait until the last minute? No worries...we've got this!


MZ Wallace bags.

For travel, the beach, the baby (the baby's stuff, not the actual baby). They come in a variety of sizes and colors. Local folks can pick one up at Tony Walker, those not so local...they will ship!


Everything Elmwood

Everything Elmwood has these cool wrap bracelets (and TONS more) These babies are under $30.00 and sure to impress!


We love this one! Hint hint- Miles, Matt...Annie, Tommy....anyone...


One of the BEST things about shopping at Everything Elmwood is the exquisite wrapping. She could make a rolling pin look like an amazing gift!



You can't go wrong! We suggest something that lasts a little longer than your typical vase arrangement.


We found all of these at Menne's Nursery in Williamsville.


They even sell potted herbs.


This pretty lady is ahead of the game. She picked up some herbs for her mom who loves to cook.


And then, of course, the sweet kid-made gift. "Home is where Mommy is!" Love.


AND...For the Dad looking to REALLY score some points...

Schedule a short photo shoot at a laid back, pretty venue of choice (This means you must pick out some outfits that somewhat match) What mom wouldn't love to see a beautiful picture of her kids that did NOT involve her scrambling to get them camera ready OR doing cartwheels to get some smiles.


Now for the big guns.

Go for the wine. Go for the case. Go big or (don't) go home. Globe Wine & Spirits

Favorite Recipes


In an attempt to maintain (or more honestly, establish) a healthy lifestyle, I have found that lunch is where I tend to fall apart. Perhaps handful of grapes (truth: pretzels), or maybe a ready-made protein shake (truth: Starbucks Vanilla Latte), or possibly a yogurt with a sprinkling of granola (truth: trail mix with a spoonful of Ben & Jerry's) leave me guilt-ridden and hungry a short time later. The truth is, we all want to be healthy, but we need a little help. This morning I got up a little earlier than usual and pulled out some of our finds from the Farmer's Market this past...


Could these unassuming avocados possibly bring forth the deliciousness of chocolate pudding? Why yes they could...There are many recipes out there for avocado pudding, but this has proven to be my favorite. It's so simple and quick.


As mentioned earlier this week on Today, freshly made bread is one of the simple things that make people feel great. No carbs?? No Gluten?? It's okay- the smell of it baking is just as rewarding. Donate the bread and you make someone else's day, too!

Simple things make us happiest


Now it's more than just a flower on your husband's tropical shirt.
