FUN MALE TEACHER GIFT!

FRIDAY MAY 5, 2017

yawn, I'm tired.
We got to send off our oldest on his first ever DC/NY historical trip
at 4:30 this morning.
His charter does it every 2 years and I can't believe
he got the opportunity to go!
I couldn't sleep last night with all the "to-do's" running through my mind,
2:45am wake up time
and then back to bed at 5:30am with, "I wonder what he's doing right now?"
So, I could REALLY use a nap.
like now.

Teacher gift idea at the end
But 1st let's talk teachers!
This is teacher appreciation week after all.


Most of our teachers have been female over the years, 
so I though I'd focus this post on the male ones.

SHARED SNOOPY ROOM

WEDNESDAY, MAY 3, 2017


Boy, am I late in sharing this!
Photos or lack of, I should say, delayed me.

Do you remember about a year ago(late post),
when I mentioned briefly that my daughter wanted me to transition her Hello Kitty room
into a Snoopy/Peanuts themed room?
It was during her 9th birthday that she had made that request.

Snoopy/peanuts room, DIY Peanuts decor, DIY Snoopy decor
 (unused) Peanut band aids, taped to paper and framed


Well it was actually a request she'd made now over 2 years ago :/
I had finished it but got distracted and only took a few photos.
Then, there was a room switch just last year,
a little brother added to the mix AND rearranging the room a few times,
before I could actually say I successfully fulfilled her request, again.

I've been done for months now too
but again a few last photos have delayed me. 
I'll get to those eventually, 
I'm not waiting to share.

Check it out below!

MINIMIZING A LARGE FLASHY PURSE LOGO

MONDAY, APRIL 3, 2017

changing up a purse logo
I'm not a flashy kind of person.
I don't care for jeweled pants, shirts, shoes, belts, purses, etc. 😆
so carrying this purse as it was, would have made me self conscious lol

That's why I needed to do something
 because it was too cute not use.

DRESSING THE BUMP#2- FIRST TRIMESTER!

SUNDAY, MARCH 19, 2017

1st Trimester!
DRESS THE BUMP round 2, maternity outfits, inexpensive maternity, thrifted maternity, bump wear, bump outfits, maternity outfits, maternity style, bump style
2016/2017 edition

Yes, it's true,
I get to do this again!

(original "Dress The Bump" )
2nd Trimester
3rd Trimester

I know I'm not the best dressed,
certainly not as clever with my outfits as other's 
but if you're anything like me, 
you too have run out of ideas at some point and feel stuck.
Pregnancy is very similar,
it just has the added challenge of dressing a growing belly.
That's why I'd like to share what's worked for me.

This first post is focused on being comfortable,
 dressing your subtly there belly
or concealing it until the appropriate time.

2016 IN REVIEW & MOST READ POST

TUESDAY, MARCH 14, 2017

Can I tell you how excited I am to be finished with the marriage posts?
I can finally move on to other things!

Dec 6, 2016 -Picking our Christmas tree from Indian Rock tree farm!
A first as a family.

One of those being a review of my last year.
I use to do "Best Of's"
 (my yearly review of the most visited posts during that year),
but its been a good while.

 Occasional 2016 posting left little content to read
and a very quiet blog.
So, I'm doing my best to get back in here 
and stay a little more current.

Clearly our story continues beyond the series
but I believe what needed to be addressed
and shared has been. 

Below you'll see my closing thoughts on how marriage 
and any other relationship
are affected by thoughts, words and self worth.

Friends, friends,
we're coming to the end of these posts!
Who knew I had more than 3 in me?!
I'm pretty sure my next post will be the last.

Today is a little different,
it's broken down into 2 parts within the post.

Just stick with me a tad more,
I promise we're almost done.
