5 Simple Gifts To Celebrate Your Mom Like The Queen She Is

Mothers day is the one day of the year where children have the opportunity to spoil their mothers because they spoil us all year long. This holiday is not to be taken lightly, and it is your job as their child to do something special for her... If you are anything like me then you are guilty of waiting until the absolute last moment to get an amazing gift, but realize that a scented candle just doesn't do you mom justice.

Here are my five go-tos for mothers day gifts. Good luck!

Write your mom a heartfelt letter.

Nothing says "Mom, I love you so much" more than written documentation of that love. Take your time to tell her of all the ways that she is an amazing human being, reminisce in your favorite memories, thank her for all of her selflessnesses, and tell her how much she means to you.

This is a guaranteed way to melt your mother's heart.

Make her life easier.

Odds are that your mother works endlessly to ensure that your family is well taken care of, and this may be through working a tiring job, cooking and cleaning so you are taken care of, and so much more. For mothers day, one of the nicest things that you can do is acknowledge that she does all of these tough things, and by doing them for her (or generally helping out around the house to make her life easier) she can take some time to relax. There is nothing like knowing that your kids are willing to help you to make you happier.

Do something for her that she wouldn't do for herself.

One thing that I am notoriously terrible at is washing cars, but its things like this that can make a huge difference in someone's day. Showing up to wherever she's going in a fresh and clean ride would put that extra pep in her step. This could be so much more like drawing her a bubble bath and making dinner while she's in there, manicure and pedicures, making breakfast for her before she starts her day.

Make her a nice dinner.

Show your mom that her awesome skills have passed down to her kiddos, but use proper safety in the kitchen (we don't want to start a fire or get salmonella).

The most important step to making your mom dinner, is eating with her, and letting her talk about whatever she wants. Its her day after all. The one-on-one conversations with your mom can lead to some of the best memories.

Let her do her.

Maybe your mom just wants a day to herself. Maybe she wants to sleep until 2 p.m. and not be woken up for the first time since she had children. Maybe she wants to shop and buy herself fun things. You gotta let her do her. You can let her do her thing, and while she's doing something by herself you can do one of the other things in this article to make her feel even more special.

Happy Mother's Day Mom!!

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
