DIY Easter Bunny Wreath

It’s hard to believe Easter is this weekend! I feel like we just had St. Patrick’s Day and it’s still super cold outside! I usually stick with a happy yellow forsythia wreath for our front door throughout spring but was in a wreath making mood so I whipped up this simple Easter Bunny wreath.

Wonder (Discussion)

Hello book worms! I’m excited to hear what you thought about our March book selection: Wonder. Did you get a chance to read it? I gave it a 5/5 stars. It was such a joy to read! I’ve got 3 questions below, and Lisa’s got 3 as well over on her blog. Feel free to discuss any or all of the questions in the comment section or link-up your post at the bottom. Lisa and I are sharing the same link-up, so you don’t have to enter on both blogs. The linky will close in a week. Alright, let’s get started!

This book is a book that I would recommend to every friend I have, as well as everyone else in the world. It really pulled on the old heart strings but reminded me that kindness is, above all, the most important thing. The story was written for 8-12 year olds but children are not the only people who need to take a look at how they’re treating others.

And now, for the discussion. Before I begin, I’ll remind you that there may be spoilers ahead. Also, feel free to use my questions as jumping points. Ask your own questions and start your own discussions. [Read more…]

#40bagsin40days Challenge Update

#40bagsin40days is tough guys. I had complete confidence in myself to do one task/day and if I’d skipped a day or two I’d easily pick up the slack a few days later. This did not happen. I’ve taken two large breaks so far and with Soph’s broken toes and immobilization, this week isn’t looking good either. Thankfully, next week is Jeffrey’s vacation so I’m hopping to be a crazy whirlwind cleaning twister lady and getting caught up on my list.

Not to say that my efforts are to be scoffed at. So far I’ve tackled: [Read more…]

New Beginnings

New Beginnings
Spring is here and with it are signs of new beginnings everywhere. For me, there are new beginnings happening all over the place! My 5K training is in full swing now in my second week. We are continuing our #whole30 eating habits during the weeks while allowing for some wiggle room on the weekends. To be truthful, [Read more…]

Disney’s FROZEN Easter Backpack

I was so excited when I got accepted to make a Disney’s FROZEN Easter basket for Sophie! This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #DisneyEaster #CollectiveBias
FROZEN Easter Backpack for toddler Disney vacation
I was especially looking forward to Easter this year with Sophie to begin our traditions of Easter egg hunts, big flowery hats and eating Peeps. I knew I wanted to do an Easter basket for her while putting my own spin on things, so all of her goodies will be things she uses all the time (rather than a ton of candy and more stuffed animals).

Let’s DIY

Switching up this week’s Let’s DIY series post because I have something special planned for tomorrow! Apparently, this week I was super inspired by making boring things more fun with color and pattern! Extremely easy projects that can add a ton of character to a piece.

The Key is Habit

habit

I’m not entirely sure why it is taking me this long to learn, but things seem to run more smoothly when it’s a habit. I’m not very good at habits, but when I do attempt a habit, and it lasts for at least a month, I’m a much happier person. [Read more…]

Floral Letter Sign

Hello friends and happy Monday! I hope you had a lovely weekend and are ready to conquer the week ahead. I’ve been wanting to make something sweet for Sophie’s door for a while and saw this beautiful floral letter from Hello Charlotte James Etsy store on Pinterest that I knew I had to make!

Since spring is on it’s way, this floral craft really brightened my day. While Jeffrey took Soph to the grocery I put this simple craft together so it would be up on her door when she got home. She got a huge smile on her face and loved touching all the flowers. I made sure they were super secure so she could touch them as much as she wanted. [Read more…]
