Your Personal Assistant - May

Since it's the beginning of the month, Tip Junkie is here as Your Personal Assistant. Take a day and really plan and organize your schedule. Here are some of the things I do:

1. Check birthdays for the month, buy cards & presents, get them ready to mail or deliver. If you have a child's birthday this month, plan it and get out the invites.

Here's Tip Junkie's 13 Day Birthday Bash with all kinds of amazing birthday ideas.

2. Mother's Day is Sunday, May 10th. Be sure to order your gifts from Tip Junkie Mom-preneurs and support other blogging women! Today is the last day to order & still get it shipped in time!!

10. Time to sign the kiddos up for vacation bible school! Don't wait the good ones fill up quickly.

11. Plan Summer: Camping trips, Trips to the lake, and Weekends at grandma's. We coordinate most of these outings with friends, so we also get friends vacation schedule to make the most of our summer.

14. Finalize Thanksgiving plans. Do something different this year.

We already had to put down our deposit for our place for Thanksgiving. We rented a HUGE house and are bunking in with 3 other families at Brandon this year. This way we can put the kids to bed and hang out and play games with the other adults at night. {{squeal in delight}}
