My Wonderful Mother

My Mother has always been there for me. She worked hard to meet my needs and my brothers. I am very thankful for all she has done for us and for being such an amazing, kind and caring Mother. Tomorrow we celebrate the special women in our life, our Mothers. I found this interesting infographic courtesy of promocode4share to share with you in honor of those wonderful, strong women. I'd love for you to check it out and tell me your thoughts. My mom has kept every homemade card we have ever made for her and she keeps them on display. Do you have a favorite Mommy Gift?

Amazing things only mothers do [Infographic] Via:

Students Save Money with Campus Book Rentals

With Winter Break right around the corner, many college students are looking forward to coming home for the Holidays. This can be a costly trip for those who are going to school out of state. By the time you add up the cost of airline tickets, rental cars and all the other expenses of heading back home, it can leave very little left in your pocket to use towards school. That's why I'm always excited to tell you about ways to save money starting with Campus Book Rentals.

Campus Book Rentals is your answer to avoiding the cost of purchasing those pricey textbooks. Why pay full price for a book that you only need for a semester when you can rent one for up to 90% of that cost and use it for a semester? It's true! That's a savings of $140!!!

Plus, Campus Book Rentals provides free shipping both ways! You can even highlight throughout the book as if you owned it. They also offer a 30 day risk free guarantee. You can return your book within 30 days, no questions asked for a full refund! Check out this video on how Campus Book Rentals works.

In addition to all these wonderful perks for you, Campus Book Rentals also gives back to those in need. Campus Book Rentals donates to Operation Smile every time a textbook is rented. I love to refer my friends to a company that truly cares for others and looks to make a difference in the world. If you aren't familiar with Operation Smile, they are an International Organization comprised of medical professionals and caring individuals who provide facial reconstruction surgeries for children with deformations such as a cleft whom without the help of the organization could not afford it otherwise. Many of these children are unable to speak, eat or smile due to the cleft and this organization helps thousands of these children lead a normal life each year. I love it when I can do business with a company who gives back.
