Kate Spade Inspired Party

So just like that she is fourteen. How did that happen so quickly? We had the best birthday weekend! Her Granny and I took her shopping at Justice, Sam Moons, Target and lunch at Fuzzy's. Then the next day we had a Kate Spade inspired breakfast birthday! She found birthday plates she liked at Hobby Lobby. Then when I showed her Kate Spade parties on Pinterest she knew exactly what she wanted! I've thrown so many parties the only thing I had to purchase was the fabric for the table (three yards on Amazon for under $7), some craft paper, her cake and plates/napkins. It all turned out so cute!! My little fashionista even realized she had a black and white striped shirt in her closet. We paired it with a Kendra Scott inspired Rayne necklace and she was ready to party!

Shaklee Update

Dear Friends,
       I just wanted to post and let you know the reason I removed Shaklee from my bio and side images. I LOVE the products and plan to continue using them but I will no longer be a distributor. Life has gotten so busy with homeschooling, having hearing impaired twins and basically being a mom of five. After much thought and prayer we decided "balance" was our word of the year. Realization came that I just didn't have time to devote properly to a business or customers right now. My priorities are helping, raising, homeschooling and loving fiercing my children and husband. So that is why I no longer sell Shaklee.

Erin Condren Planners

Are you a planner like me? If you are then you need to check out Erin Condren and join the planner world! I have been using her planners for a few years now. I LOVE them! When you have a family as big as mine you need lots of room to write and Erin's planners meet that need! Today I felt giddy to pull the new one I ordered in September to start writing our 2016 plans and schedule! I consider this a staple for the year and gift to myself! The best part about it was I got $30 off of my 2016 because she has an amazing rewards program!

I LOVE how you can personalize the covers. You can also make or order new covers to fit the seasons. Who doesn't love personalization?!?!? These also make a great gift!

The calendar layout provides big spaces to write which are a huge plus for me!

The Erin Condren Life Planner also has weekly layouts. I use these to make dinner menus, record exercise, or write memories for my kids baby books!

There is also a section with several lined pages to journal or keep notes!

Included are stickers that fit nicely in the calendar layout to mark appointments or birthdays.

I LOVE the pockets too that are included as well as the perpetual calendar.

Lastly, I love the zippered pocket included with the planner.

The best part about the Erin Condren Life planner though is her rewards program!! Use my link to signup and receive a $10 OFF coupon for your first purchase! Then check out her rewards program so you can TOO earn rewards!!

There are also Facebook groups that are dedicated to Erin Condren. If you decide to purchase one look up Erin Condren on Facebook.

It's starting to look like Christmas

How fast Christmas snuck up on me!! This year we decided to forgo our normal ornaments on the tree and let the kids make decorations. The twins are in such a chewy curious stage....chewy is an understatement. Oh my gosh I have NEVER had children who chew on everything in sight. The furniture, toys, their clothes, cabinet knobs, and even me a few times (their teeth hurt!!). I'm bringing up a set of beavers for sure. So we didn't want glass balls or our keepsake ornaments to end up looking like a puppy attacked them. When we went camping the kids collected pine cones to decorate the tree with. Then Riley and I had a date night and afterwards went to Michaels to grab a few fun items to make ornaments. On the Saturday after Thanksgiving we spent all day at the table crafting. The kids and I were in our true elements! Crafting with my kids is my happy place...besides shopping, lol! Riley told me later that he had so much fun! Brady helped me make 30 feet of dot garland. He punched out circles and I glued them onto jute ribbon. They colored wood ornaments and made bead bake ornaments with Riley. My favorite though are the pine cone people!

Britney drew this for me!

Our elf Milton Jingles was so good to bring the kids pajamas, a movie and a game!

When I look at the tree I think about that Saturday when the Christmas music was playing, my kids were crafting at the table, and how happy they were to decorate the tree!

After Christmas shopping we went to Red Robin. It wasn't to cold so we ate outside and enjoyed the night air and the Christmas lights!

Bundled up at the restaurant!
