Today you'll find out why good self-care involves a pair of pajamas (and it's not about getting a good night's sleep!). Then we'll take a look at a few fun ideas for place card holders that work great for marking food on your buffet table as well.

 

Susan Schell is joining us to talk about finances and she's going beyond budgets. She'll show us the often overlooked elements of our financial life, things we never think of when we talk about budgets and money. And she'll give us some tips to keep us on the right financial track.

And in Christmas Corner we're talking about the Christmas Ostrich. I know you're familiar with all of Santa's reindeer, but the Christmas Ostrich is very important and every busy mom needs to know about this crazy creature.
