Who’s the Fool?

So one year I decided to play the ultimate April Fools joke on my friend here, Jen Crego. She had been harassing me and harassing me about having a baby so I had the brilliant idea to tell her I was pregnant! I marched into her office and announced the news. I’m pregnant! She was so excited that she welled up for a second. Then I blurted out APRIL FOOLS! Well, I guess the joke was on me… I was pregnant, but I didn’t even know it. Oh Brother, I’m never going to live that one down! My first born received the Baby MD Three-Peice Layette Set from my lovely co-workers. And my second actually wore it too! Moral of the story: Be careful what you say on April Fools, I may just come back to bite you! LOL...

Here Comes the Mad Hatter?

I have a friend getting married in July this year and I am really excited for her bridal shower ๐Ÿ™‚ Sounds weird, usually I despise an obligated gathering where I have to chat with people I barely know. However our group has been close for about 20 years and the bridal shower has a theme! I am not sure exactly what they are calling it but it’s basically a mad hatter tea party. FUN! Not only to I get to buy her a fun gift (wink wink) but I also get to pamper my self with a ridiculous hat that I may never wear again. I am totally going to embarrass her and show up with the Kama Sutra Bedside Box, but will happily take any other suggestions for optimum embarrassment. What I really need though is some tips on really great hat stores in the area. Anyone know of...

Need to Relax?

Maybe this is a little too personal, but although I have pretty easy pregnancies, it’s not really my favorite thing in the world. I’m just mildly uncomfortable all the time. So annoying. Anyway, all I really want to do is sit in a hot soothing bathtub with a warm cup of green tea. With that being said, I found an awesome little gift I am going to gift to myself! The Mudlark Aubrey Mug & Spa Set is perfect. I had no idea we had this product! I love it. A candle and soap that smells of eucalyptus and its all natural to boot. Nice! I can always use an over-sized mug too. I suggest you buy it for your next pregnant friend. I promise she will appreciate it...

What To Do For Your Right Hand?

Now I don’t mean your right hand literally, I mean that certain person at work that you dump every task you cannot finish on. Or the person who brings you your messages and that piping hot cup of coffee you can’t get through the day without. Admin’s Day is technically the 27th of April this year, however it usually just runs the whole week because bosses forget! We know, you are busy! It’s hard to remember everything, but don’t forget to recognize this person. I know what you are thinking, well they get a paycheck don’t they? Yes, but even just a thank you card would do. It’s not about the gift, it’s about morale. This person works hard to help you get through each day successfully, so show them you see that! We designate a whole page to these people, take 5 minutes to check out our Admin’s Day Gifts. While flowers are always wonderful (and easy for you), I personally like the Tea Forte Magnolia Mug. Help them get their day started with a hot cup of tea so they can be ready for you! They don’t drink tea? Okay then try the Admin’s monogrammed Mug. If you’re not quite sure what this person likes the good old fall back is the Contemporary Dish Garden. Seriously people, don’t...

Eggs or No Eggs?

Well, it is my first year with a toddler at Easter. Last year McKinley was so young I didn’t worry about what I should be doing for the Holiday. She’s obviously too young to understand, but I feel like I should start a tradition at this point. Do I have an Easter Egg hunt at home? We did that every year when I was a kid but there were a bunch of us at home. I always remember finding that one egg months later that we left somewhere too. I would really like to avoid that ๐Ÿ™‚ Do I use fake eggs? Do I take her to a community function? So many choices! Or maybe I take the easier route like I and a lot of GiftTree parents do forย  Holidays, pick something from our Easter Gifts page and take something home from work? Hmmm…. Ideas...
