Happy Monday!  We survived our garage sale weekend, we have some crazy stories though!  I can’t believe tomorrow starts the month of May!  April went by so fast, and speaking of time flying, Mothers Day is less than 2 weeks away!

Growing up I got my Mom some pretty horrible gifts, I’m pretty sure when I was 5 or 6 I picked out a plastic graveside wreath for her at the store.  I remember thinking it was so pretty with all the plastic flowers, I had no idea about its actual purpose.  Now my kids have gotten me some pretty lame gifts too.  Any moms out there still get the coupon book?  The ones you can redeem for kisses or chores?  Yeah even though my kids are teens now I still surprisingly get coupon books.  It’s the funniest thing though, every time I actually go to redeem a chore coupon it’s suddenly expired…hmm.  Heads up to other coupon book moms, I think you’ve got 24-48 hours to cash them in.

I’d like to think since my grave wreath purchasing days I’ve gotten a little better about selecting gifts.  Mothers Day can easily sneak up on you before you know it!  This year it’s May 13th, so don’t forget…. Mama won’t be happy.  Below I’ve rounded up a nice variety of gifts for Mom to help give you some ideas.  Best part?  All are under $100.
