Happy Notes

Happy Notes

Because Iā€™m happy... Even though my littlest one has been sick and sleeping on my lap while I work for the most of the day, he still asked to listened to happy more times than I can count. I am so thankful for the amount of smiles this little boy brings me.  But sometimes you, your friend, or even the stranger at the coffee shop needs a little reminder. So, download, print them, share them, use them as scratch paper.. whatever your heart desires (but with a smile on your face).

New Year's Eve: The Party Doesn't Stop

New Year's Eve: The Party Doesn't Stop

New Year's Eve is a tad different after you have kids. but that doesn't mean the party has to stop! Last year I found a great way to keep the little ones in the spirit and awake all the way to the new year! 

To start the celebration, I tied up 7 balloons that each contained a piece of paper with an activity written on it.  Starting at 6 o'clock, I let them pop the first balloon and we read the activity aloud.  Each hour we would pop another balloon and enjoy the activity for the hour. After a few times of this they were counting down to the next time they got to pop the ballon! The last balloon that we poped at midnight was filled with confetti and special "happy new year" message. I broke down the activities by hour for you below.

Repurpose your Thrift Finds

Repurpose your Thrift Finds

I love going to thrift stores and flea markets for so many reasons. Classics never go out of style. Period. Vintage is unique, has a positive environmental impact, as a higher quality, and has history... plus who doesn't love treasure hunting!  

Going to goodwill as become a family weekend tradition. It is something that we all can enjoy together and teaches the boys the importance of donating and giving back. I have taken a few of our recent goodwill finds and shown how you can use a key holder as jewlery organizer and a wooden box as a jewelry box.
