Labor Day: Take the Day Off

Labor Day

Labor Day, one of those holidays that result in a lovely 3-day weekend and allow us to rest from our labors. Hopefully you have something stress-free planned (or unplanned) for this weekend. Put your feet up and soak in a peaceful day-off (seriously, try not to do anything work-related), and while you’re at it indulge in a bit of heaven from yours truly—gourmet chocolate cookies!

Any fun Labor Day weekend plans out there?

Wishing you a Happy Labor Day!

Celebrate Parents Day! {July 25th}

Duggar Family

Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar were elected as the 2009 National Parents of the Year and if you’re oppressively thinking, “Great, we can hardly handle our one child, there’s no way we could ever be nominated for such a grand award.” Sulk no longer because there are plenty of other things you and your significant other can do to celebrate Parents Day without having to worry about such awards that don’t include an entire camera lens full of your 19 children. In fact, it seems on days such as this that the customary thing to do is get away from those progeny that you so love for a nice, well-deserved date night.

Date Night Ideas For Parents, Soon-To-Be Parents, and Aspirational Parents:
P.S. These are some great ideas to “treat” your parents to if you are those lovely little progeny mentioned previously.

•    Host a costumed Murder Mystery Dinner. Serve gourmet chocolate cookies, of course.
•    Get in some laughs at a Comedy Club.
•    Rustle up some grub at a Rodeo. Wranglers with large belt-buckles and tucked in shirts a must.
•    Take a Swing Dancing Class.
•    Enjoy peasant-fair at Medieval Times.
•    Check out the latest exhibit at your Museum.

Happy Parents Day!

Celebrate Nurses Week, May 6-12th

Nurses week is celebrated May 6-12: National Nurses Day (May 6th) through Florence Nightingale’s birthday (May 12th). It’s fitting that the celebration ends with Florence Nightingale’s birthday, as she did revolutionize nursing. We’ve even named a non-medical condition after her: the Florence Nightingale Syndrome, which occurs when a caregiver develops strong feelings for, or falls in love with, the patient he/she is nursing. In turn, it can also psychologically effect the patient, who can develop romantic feelings toward their caretaker as they begin to see them as their protector. Hmm…rich, luxurious, gourmet cookies seem to have a special “effect” on people—should we call that the “Heavenly Cookie Effect”?

Celebrate Nurses Week + Nurses Day!

Regardless if you’ve experienced the Florence Nightingale Effect or not, I think its safe to say we can all agree that being sick isn’t fun—but being taken care of while you’re out-of-commission can make things a whole lot easier! Nurses have that little bit of magic to help you get better sooner, and there’s no better time to show your appreciation than for Nurses Week! Your angelic caregiver would love to see some care in return for all of their devotion and optimism along the way! Gourmet chocolate cookie baskets brimming with the decadence of cookies like chocolate chip, coconut macaroon, rocky road, raspberry eclipse, mint eclipse, oatmeal raisin, and English toffee Chocolate Chip should do the trick.

There are nearly 3.1 million registered nurses in the United States, and, 2.4 million of them are actively employed. Their motto: “Caring today for a healthier tomorrow.”

Not many of us have the opportunity to touch the lives of others (and save lives) on a daily basis like nurses do—Thank you to all of the wonderful, optimistic, fun and caring nurses out there!
