Lola's Sugar Rush

All I can say is this: You're going to love Lola's!

Okay, you know that's not all I'm going to say... You're kids will double love Lola's!

Lola's Sugar Rush, located in historic downtown Littleton, is everything that is right about boutique shopping with a sweet twist! You're drawn in off the street by the chic and whimsical pink and brown awning. You walk in the door and your eyes instantly feast on the array of colors that seem to glisten from every glass jar - each one full of sugary goodness!

Whatever your pleasure, you'll find it at Lola's Sugar Rush. The shelves and tables are bursting with candy of all kinds... some I feel certain you could spend weeks looking for and never find anywhere else. This is not the candy aisle at your local grocery store. There are chocolates, hard candies, gummy candies, jelly beans (oh, the jelly beans!), and an assortment of beautifully decorated cupcakes that will stop you cold.

You'll also find gift baskets (like the Colorado Medley pictured above) and pre-packaged concoctions to meet every need (Mother's Day is almost here!). If you can make it out of the store before tearing into your purchase, you're a better woman than I am! And the best part, you can bring the kids... guilt-free! There is a delightful assortment of twenty-five cent candy and ninety-nine cent candy that will make them feel like they are getting something really special, and you don't have to steal money from your date night fund. (No date night fund? Me neither. You won't have to steal from anywhere else either.)

When you visit their website, be sure to check out their birthday party options. Because do you know a kid, any kid, who wouldn't want to have their birthday party at a candy shop??? Special occasion or just because, Lola's is a sweet pick!

PS. When you go, be sure to say "hi" to Lola for me... and tell her you saw her Sugar Rush at Mom In Progress!

Give Thanks: Part 4

KEEP READING FOR A GREAT SCENTSY GIVEAWAY!

There is so much to be thankful for, it really is hard to decide what will make these next few posts... but today is an ode to my husband. If there is one thing he loves, it's great smells.

Although great smells come from great cooking, they also come from great candles. Now with kids around candles can feel a little risky, but then came Scentsy. This is a "flameless" candle which is actually kind of a throw back to the scented wax warmers that used a candle. No candles here, just plug in the warmer and the small light bulb does all the work. I'm a fan of the nightlight sized warmers, but the larger Scentsy warmers are quite lovely.

Browse the entire Holiday Collection to find the one perfect for your home or start thinking about gift giving - the combinations are endless! And look at this festive warmer of the month (10% off):


But now we need to talk about fragrance! Silver Bells is the fragrance of the month (also 10% off…

Summer Plan 2012

Is anyone else asking themselves what happened to the last 3 months?? (Maybe you're wondering what happened to the last 3 years or just the last 3 days... at any rate you know how I feel, mom.)

Today was my kids' last day of school for the year. I'm sitting on the precipice of another summer. This was my first year of "freedom" - two kids in school full time. It felt good. But as predicted I packed every possible moment with housework, volunteering, writing, and working at my "real job" (ie. the one I actually get paid to do).

And it makes me wonder, how will I ever scale back and just enjoy the lazy days of summer?? How can I embark on a summer of fun and adventure without feeling like I'm staring into the abyss? I've done an unofficial survey of other moms I know and there's a mix of emotions. Some are ecstatic to have kids at home this summer; others are dreading it. I have a funny feeling the first group isn't telling the whole truth…

Mom Spot: Progressive Pioneer

Here is another blog I've come across in recent weeks. She has gorgeous pictures and her post yesterday was truly fantastic.

"Maine is pretty rainy in the spring.  And I lived in Oregon for awhile and it defines rainy.  So, a little rain rarely puts me in a gray mood.  In fact, this rainy, rainy spring we've been having here in Utah has actually made me feel quite cheerful!  Each rainy day has felt like something of a celebration."
