Chicken Soup for Mother's Day and a GIVEAWAY!

Chicken Soup for the Soul...we've all heard about the amazing series of books that have sold over one hundred million copies since 1993! In fact, USA Today has named the original Chicken Soup for the Soul one of the most memorable and impactful books in the last 25 years...that's pretty impressive. Two new titles have been recently released and would make great mother's day gifts...

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Like Mother, Like Daughter
Do you ever get the feeling you are turning into your mother? (YIKES!) The similarities that moms & daughters share make up some of the most heartwarming and amusing stories in this book. You can read about this and many other mother/daughter topics such as learning from each other, a mother's wisdom, raising teenage daughters, and becoming best friends with your mom.

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Moms and Sons
A collection of stories written by moms, grandmothers, and sons about their special relationships. It includes touching and funny stories about many topics such as being a good sport and how to raise a wonderful man. According to most of these mothers and sons, being a "mama's boy" is a good thing.

Check out all of the books in the Chicken Soup series on their website. There are so many to choose from...sports, religion, pets, college...there is definitely something for everyone! I am thinking about picking up the one on Empty Nesters for my mom. And with Mother's Day right around the corner, I am going to send TWO lucky winners a copy of one of these books! To enter the giveaway, leave me a comment about a happy Mother's Day memory from your past or tell me your exciting Mother's Day plans for this year. Don't forget to leave me your email address so I can find you if you are one of the winners. Please make a note if you would be more interested in receiving the Mother/Daugther or Mother/Son copy. For an extra entry, post about this giveaway on your blog and link to me. For two extra entries, follow me on twitter. The winners will be announced next Thursday...good luck to everyone!

One Mother's Day I made my mom breakfast in bed and I brought her a whole egg (in the shell) on a plate!

I would like the daughter book if I won. I am hoping for Mother's Day this year that my husband arranges for a sitter so we can go to dinner and a movie. I'm a simple kinda gal. A box of Godiva wouldn't hurt either :)
