Converting Mother's Day Memories to DVD with YesVideo

I remember this day like it was yesterday

The Twofer were around three years old (maybe 4?) and getting their first professional manicure with my mom. These are the people I celebrate on Mother's Day. The two little lives that made it possible for me to become a mom, and the woman who gave me the love, security, and stability I needed to take that step.

When I think of a unique Mother's Day gift I should get for my mom, I think of the mounds of video tape that was left behind in raw format when my dad passed away. When I think of what I want for Mother's Day, I think of the vacuum that needs to be replaced, the fan that recently broke that we'll need on hot summer nights, and (look I'm being honest here) I think about the mounds of video tape that we have taken since the girls were born that are STILL in their raw format.

Lucky for my husband YesVideo can convert that raw video to DVD so that we might actually watch that mound of life movies some day!

What are you getting your mom this year?

If your mom has a stack of old video, get her a YesVideo gift certificate or better yet, grab that stack and send it to YesVideo yourself!

Mother's Day isn't all roses

Don't get me wrong, for those of you who received roses for Mother's Day I think they are a fine gift.

Me?

I prefer things like...

a nap (check)

relaxing with a book (check)

vegging out with a movie and popcorn (check, check)

a good, juicy burger and french fries (check, check and a double check for the milkshake)

I did get some Bonus prizes too:

a pillow pet (seriously, these things are so soft and cuddly I can't wait for bed!)

two keychains with original artwork

a selection of handmade gifts (note the magazine paper bead necklace)

Fashionista Friday - handbags make the perfect Mother's Day gift

You simply can't go wrong with a handbag for your mom. Here's why:

1. You don't have to sweat it out trying to figure out her size or take the chance you'll insult her but suggesting she wears a size larger (or smaller).

2. You can go a little crazy and take a chance one a bright color, funky fabric, etc because it's an accessory and not something that can't be substituted.

3. You can always find something affordable that doesn't look affordable if you know what I mean. This will get your more mom brownie points for half the price.

Here are a few I'm eyeing up and yes they are all affiliate links to go ahead...click and shop and maybe just maybe I can get one of these for myself...you know, since I work so hard at keeping you enteretained and all.

The Beach Tote

The white bag I've never had

 

The "OMG everyone but me has a mustard yellow handbag" option

And, The Clutch

(and what a clutch this is!)

Which one do you want?

Oh yes, and Happy Mother's Day to all the moms...including my own, who will not be getting a handbag for Mother's Day but rather a lovely Hallmark card that might have a photo of a handbag.
