t’s no secret that I love my dad like crazy! Last year we got the opportunity to celebrate him at a dinner in honor of his 35 years of employment with Bayer. This picture of my sister & me with him is one of my favorites from that evening together. Sadly, for us, our brother has moved to New Orleans so one piece of our puzzle was missing in this picture. He actually has three kids that are so proud of him and adore him!
I had a blast sharing with you my gift ideas for Mother’s Day, over on the Kenmore Genius blog, and I can’t wait to showcase some of my favorite Father’s Day gifts that I have given my dad over the years. I hope you will find these ideas inspiring for this gift-giving season.
Head on over to my article on, “Creative Gifts Your Dad is Sure to Love,” to learn about my favorite gifts that I have given my dad(s) over the years!
Don’t forget that this year I also have an awesome DIY Chalkboard Conversation Bubble Cookie Jar that you can make and fill with your dad’s favorite cookies. I highly recommend these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip & Sea Salt Cookies for the perfect sweet and salty combination!
Mother’s Day is just around the corner and it’s time to honor our moms! Each year we try to do something special for my mom and mother-in-law. I have found that often the simplest of gifts are the most treasured, especially if they are hand delivered by my children.
Today I am over at the Kenmore blog sharing a few of my favorite Mother’s Day gifts that are not only creative gifts to create, but they are also very easy on the wallet. Head on over there to get the scoop on my top gifts to give.
Enough about the giving though, let’s talk about the receiving. After all, it is your day too! What is your dream Mother’s Day gift this year?
Kenmore is running a new You Tube contest that I think you guys will be really excited about. They are hosting a Crazy Cleaning Confessions contest where you can submit your craziest cleaning confessions for a chance to win some really beautiful appliances.
I have to say that one thing I truly love about Kenmore is that they use a real mom as a spokesperson for their brand and that they chose to use me to showcase and share about their contest with moms. I spent two fun-filled days shooting this campaign in Chicago and was so honored to be a part of it.
They have only had one entry so far and I would LOVE to see a MomAdvice reader win their appliances. They are fantastic and would be great for any mom on a budget that is needing an upgrade!
As an aside, you can always find my articles for Kenmore here. I write on the topic of household management and I will soon be sharing videos on each month’s topic with the Kenmore site. Our latest article is on throwing a great backyard barbecue and I share a cute idea for throwing a back-to-school carnival.
To see all of the Crazy Cleaning Confession videos, be sure to visit the Kenmore contest page or find out more on Kenmore’s Clean & Green site to learn more!
Good luck, everyone!
