a wonderful book, "The BugaBees: Friends with Food Allergies" that talks about
the 8 most common food allergies and how children can still enjoy events and
activities with their friends, even though they have to be cautious with what they eat.
a great site and magazine for moms!


Family Photographs - here is an AMAZING photographer in MN


An awesome bookstore in a northern Chicago suburb - Libertyville
Crocodile Pie Books - definately worth a visit!!


Be sure to check out this newly launched website by some fellow Minnesota ladies that carries great gifts for your girlfriends (apparel, accessories, bath & body), kids and mens items, and of course, "The Sick Bug"!  It is a great alternative to braving the cold and going OUT to shop!
