Ever Wonder How Your Kids View You? + $25 Gift Card Giveaway

ever-wonder-how-your-kids-view-you-01Parenting is no joke! I mean, let’s face it…It’s tough work. It’s constant, never-ending work. People often ask me what I do all day since I’m a stay at home mom. That question is usually pretty insulting to me because I think most people have the perception that I sit on the couch and eat ice cream all day. In reality, that is far from the case and truthfully, I’d really like to answer their question with the myriad of things I do day in and day out. Listen, just because I don’t work a 9 to 5, doesn’t mean I sit around all day.Continue Reading

Savings at Publix: Back to School Superhero Snack Station

Back to School Superhero Snack Station with Free Superhero Girls Printable

Week two of first grade brought homework. And lot’s of it! Bunbun has 10 spelling words, reading homework and a cute little about me poster project to complete. Last week, I purchased a new desk for myself and gave her my old one. I set her up with a little writing/art station using a bin I had purchased a while back.

Back to School isn’t just for kids though. As parents, we get back to business as well.

With all the crumbs and sugar lying around, its sure to attract pesky ants and other unwanted bugs.

Back to School Sign Template and Tutorial

Wow! Can you believe it’s that time of year again? Our children our gearing up go to back to school! I have to admit, I have had Bunbun’s school supplies purchased and ready to go for a few weeks now. Her uniforms came in last week and all she needs is new sneakers. I honestly am not ready to send her back just yet. Can we just have a few more weeks? Months even? We have really been enjoying one another, keeping busy and spending time with friends. But, I guess we can’t keep them home forever, right?

Every year, we do a sign for the first day of school. This year, we are changing things up a bit and I am happy to share my files with you!
