What a fabulous, exciting, exhausting day, haha! Love, Mom finally officially opening on October first was wonderful! I finally had both my city business license and the state permit to collect sales tax (required even on delivery, sorry). I decided to gift some great moms with balloons, happy notes, and pizza! I loved that I had moms who tagged OTHER great moms-our mom friends need to know we see them and their daily sacrifices-and they are rocking parenthood. Heck, we all need a little happy and frequent encouragement in our lives. I started my morning by blowing up balloons in my dining roo ..read more

Freshman Struggle
Love, Mom Blog

5M ago
Fall can be super hard for freshman college students who’ve never been far from home. It’s also a struggle if they’re 20 minutes from home but don’t have a roommate they really enjoy being with! The struggle is real. I’ve gifted, visited, and hugged an exceptional number of students struggling this year. I know they each feel alone, stranded, and they’re beginning to feel desperate. The rush of decorating their room is over, the homework has set in, and Christmas break seems so far away. As difficult as it seems, they need to talk to people. SO many students are feeling the exact same way. Ta ..read more

Polling Parents

I did an informal poll last year. I was trying to determine how my business could grow, yet still maintain customer satisfaction. I’ve been experiencing growing pains (in a good way!) over the past couple of years. I’m in an interesting market-my customers are mostly moms my age, but my delivery audience is their kids (college kids)! So that’s one thing keeping me on my toes, haha! (I finally figured out TikTok though…it only took me a year!) It’s also tough to keep up with demand, and I have to limit my deliveries daily (and even my gift boxes for special occasions!). I really need more spac ..read more

Apartment Move-In

Is your college student ready to move from home (or a dorm or sorority house) into an apartment…on their own? It’s a crazy transition time, and we’re living it! We are getting ready to help our daughter move out at the end of the month. She has an apartment with some friends, and my son has done this…but I’m trying to help her remember all the things she’ll need! I know she won’t be that far away, and she can always come home for things. But I want her to have the best start possible. Here is my starter apartment list: Kitchen __ Dishes __ Cups or Glasses __ Silverware __ Pots and Pans __ Bak ..read more

Birthday Gifts!

Yay! Almost your sweet student’s birthday! What to get them? I have a few ideas! Turning 21 is super exciting, but we don’t always want to send our kiddos alcohol. It might mark the beginning of the legal drinking age, but that doesn’t mean they will enjoy it…or that we want to condone drinking. I have a fun Arkansas lottery scratch-off ticket arrangement, large 34” numbered foil balloons, and 21 of ANYthing (reasons you love them, Hershey bars, $5 bills, Office memes, bracelets, La Croix cans, Paper mate flair pens, pairs of socks, balloons, flowers, 21 of literally ANY thing they love!).

Party Planning

Is your May as busy as mine? We have birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, end-of-year concerts, baby showers, and teacher appreciation to name a few! If I can streamline a few events (or decorate for multiple events), it helps with me with party planning prep time. I also try to keep the lawn in good shape and house picked up for the whole month so it never gets too bad. (Nothing worse than a last minute panic attack..) If I have more than one event within a few days, I look for ways to plan for both. I find a color scheme that matches both, and sometimes even multiply or replicate the menu ..read more

Coming Changes…

I have this amazing business consultant. We used to conference at least one to two times a week (or more if needed) when I was building a business, a website and social media accounts. She and her intern helped me with a market analysis, and all the things I needed most. Now, I’m not a baby entrepreneur any more, and I don’t talk to her as much, because I know her time is valuable! She’s still always available, but I’m more independent now. : ) When we last talked, she gave me it to me straight. Keeping all areas of mom help open has been fun, but tough. My largest customer base is college pa ..read more

College Prep

Do you have a student getting ready for college? Might I suggest less ACT or SAT prep..and more life readiness? I have seven areas I might suggest working on this summer: managing money, laundry, healthy eating, time management, manners, how to study, and safety. ACT gets them in the door, and might help with a scholarship, but lets’s help them successfully adult! Money Does your young adult have a checking account with a debit card? They need one. They need a job too. They work hard at the job, put money in the checking account, and then use it for gas, scooter rental, pizza, groceries, etc ..read more
