What does every mom want?
I love getting a message of love from my family on Mother’s Day. Check out these beautiful greeting cards that Sadie Robertson, star of A&E’s Duck Dynasty, has designed for DaySpring. Her new line - Live Original - is an inspiring blend of fashion, function, faith, and positive messages from Sadie. Besides beautiful greeting cards, she also has designed journals, Scripture shareables, inspirational magnets and sticky notes. Featuring bright colors and positive messaging such as “you are beautiful,” “let your smile change the world,” “just be yourself,” and more, I just love her new line!
With her strong faith, Sadie encourages and inspires young women to keep smiling, keep showing kindness, and keep believing even when the day is tough. As a mom, I experience plenty of tough days, and having positive messages on sticky notes, magnets and in my journal are great reminders of how blessed I really am!
Make sure you also check out this fun Instagram challenge Sadie has put out for her followers! Every Friday Sadie posts a “challenge” to her 1.9M follwers on Instagram. Followers will then post over the weekend with #liveoriginal and #liveoriginalgiveaway. 75 entrants will be chosen to receive 18 limited edition sneak peek greeting cards designed by DaySpring in collaboration with Sadie. 10 of the 75 will have a signed note from Sadie inside. The winners are encouraged to then post and share the cards they receive throughout the week.
Time to De-stress!
Mothers have a lot of stress in their lives. Just our children alone can cause a great deal of stress in our everyday lives. One thing I like to do each day is sip a cup of tea and have a few minutes of quiet time during nap time. You can give this same gift to the mothers in your life with Numi Organic Tea. They have a variety of unique and satisfying flavors and are all non-gmo and fair trade certified.
Numi’s organic Moroccan Mint has a light, lively taste that is refreshing and soothing any time of the day. I also love their enchanted White Rose blend that mixes delicate, organic white tea with whole organic rose buds. Those are just a few of my favorites, but they have a huge assortment of wonderful teas you will love!
I love a little pampering. I mean, come on, who doesn't? A gift of breakfast in bed, time for a warm bath and some new organic body cream is a wonderful idea for any mom. I personally love the Organoderm Organic Body Cream. This body cream is luxurious, not only because of the feeling it leaves on your skin, but because of the amazing organic ingredients that are food for your skin! There are no artificial, or GMO ingredients - just pure, natural, and organic.
Don't forget breakfast in bed! If you are not exactly the best chef in the books, I am here to rescue you. Skip the unhealthy donuts, breakfast cereal, or bagels and try out this awesome recipe for Ozery French Toast. It is so easy, even the kids could help you make this for mom.
Ozery Bakery’s Morning Rounds are the perfect item to deliver a quick and delicious meal with a freshly baked taste. These fruit and grain buns are filled with real fruit pieces and are completely non-GMO and free of artificial preservatives and ingredients.
Ozery French Toast (Serves 4)
2 large egg whites
1 large egg
8 Ozery Bakery Morning Rounds
¾ cup milk
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons butter
Whisk the egg whites, egg, milk, salt and vanilla together until blended. Melt 1 teaspoon butter in a nonstick skillet on medium heat. Dip the Rounds one at a time in the egg mixture and coat both sides. Place 3-4 rounds at once in the skillet and cook until lightly browned. Flip and cook the second sides for approximately the same amount of time.
Repeat above steps with remaining butter, Morning Rounds and egg mixture. Serve warm and drizzle berries and maple syrup on top!
With these three gift ideas, you CANNOT go wrong!! Make sure you tell your mom how much you love her and how much you appreciate specific things she has done for you.
I want to share some of this love with you, so we are giving away (1) bottle of the Organoderm Organic Body Cream to (1) lucky reader!
