Playing Catch up!

First– Lets do the Mix Up The Meal Recipe! I think we can come up with some fantastic meals with………PEARS!

No, I’m not asking you to cook a gourmet meal with 5 courses and be all decked out, just find a good fun way to use an ingredient, be it a lot or a little. Each week, there will be a new ingredient. Every Friday, we’ll go over what was created and how it tasted and you can even throw in a picture if you’d like!

There are different flavors and makes of this great product, so do some browsing on Google, Recipes.com, allrecipes.com or foodnetwork.com. Either way, you’ll be good to go! Desserts are welcome as well! Just remember, get creative!

Second– Later today, the OPK comparison post will be coming out. There’s a TON of information to put together, thats part of why it’s taken so long to come out.

Finally– Don’t forget about the Mothers Day Gift Exchange. Names will be drawn on the 9th. No more entries after the 8th!

Here is the link if you need it: TTCAL Mothers Day Gift Exchange

Mothers [of Angels] Day – Elfster Gift Exchange

Elfster is a secret santa gift exchange. We’ve done them in the past here on TTCAL, and it becomes a lot of fun. So why not do one for Mothers Day!? If you’d like to join, please follow the directions below.

Here’s the details for those new to Elfster:

Sign-up before Friday, April 8th (I’ll post multiple reminders in the evening, too).

To sign-up click on the link below and follow the instructions. When you sign up be sure to include somewhere your bump screen name to help your elfster identify you. http://www.elfster.com/exchange/view/5111011/e0677f/

After the sign-up deadline, Elfster will randomly assign you an elfster buddy and notify you via email of their name and a mailing address.

You will be able ask (anonymously) your person any questions that may help in selecting the right gift.

As for the gift – I put a $20 suggested limit on this one but am open if you guys want to change it. I was thinking a card, Hallmark-ish plaque, bookmark, etc… just something that recognizes and honors them as mothers.

And most importantly – remember to get the gift in the mail so it arrives before Mother’s Day – May 8th.

We’ll set our reveal date for Monday, May 9th!
