Don't Forget Mom!!!!

Mother's Day is May 14th. So this year, instead of getting your mom the traditional flowers and perfume, how about trying something different:

Ski gear!

Of course, this only works if your mom skis. (My mom doesn't, so this would go over like a lead balloon. Then I'd have to take the stuff off her hands, and....hmmm......maybe I'm onto something!) But if your mom does ski, there are some great end-of-season deals at your local ski shop. And it's never too early to plan for next year.

If you're a mom who skis, be sure to send a link to this post to the father of your children. Sometimes all it takes is a friendly reminder to get the season's pass/gloves/skis/helmet/pants/boots/boot bag (I could go on, but you get the picture) you really, really need.

Remember, when Mama's happy, everybody's happy.

Need I say more?

This is hilarious. My boyfriend's mom wanted to give me a gift certificate to Bath & Bodyworks for my birthday because she wanted to get me something nice. I told her I'd much prefer a gift certificate to REI...

I love that there are other women like me out there. I'm not the only person who loves and needs to be outdoors!
