While going out and shopping around a bit, I have been so inspired to try some of the Fall 2015 Fashion trends. There are lots of new shoe and accessory trends out this year! For Fall 2015, I think that the 70’s inspiration in shoes, accessories, and fashion overall is so fun! Think Earthy stone jewelry, capes and ponchos, big geo shaped earrings, lots and lots of fringe, suede boots and other suede items, [Read more…]
God is love. The graphic above perfectly describes Godly love. He demonstrated this great love by giving his only Son to be sacrificed for us: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us at the cross so that we all could have a victorious and beautiful life! He was the ultimate sacrifice: All for YOU and all for ME!
6 God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him won’t perish but will have eternal life. (John 3:16 CEB)
I hope your weekend has been relaxing so far! It has been a busy couple of weeks around here but I have still managed to squeeze in some time to try out some new stuff and also revisit some items from my collection of beauty products! I am happy to share some great new beauty finds for my second post on what I have been loving lately. Grab a warm drink, get comfy, and let’s talk beauty! [Read more…]
I wanted to share just a few of my picks for great Fall children’s books that I have used in the past in my classroom and that I currently use at home with Jacob. I like to keep themed book baskets with lots of fiction and non fiction selections to choose from for our reading times. He really likes listening to stories and looking at the pictures-it’s really cute 🙂 These Fall children’s books are great early childhood selections. One includes a bit of rhyme and repetition, some teach cause and effect, and also sequencing skills. These are all equally great for helping young children make connections between what they are reading and what goes on in their own lives. Two of these selections also have YouTube read aloud versions you may enjoy during story time, on the go, or just the audio during nap/quiet time, just as we have. I have been sure to include the videos for the two that have read aloud versions down below. Just click the book titles for a summary and where to buy!

I have a few baby and mommy favorites to share for today’s post! September is quickly coming to a close and has been a great month for sure. Jacob is growing up way too fast and we have been enjoying lots of things for the entire month. So, I wanted to take some time and share a few of our favorites and why we like them. Take a look!
1.Bright Starts Teethe Me Pal Teether– Jacob is teething and absolutely adores this little blue elephant teether. The design is so clever- it has four legs that mimic baby’s own fingers! He gets hours of soothing relief from this thing. It’s the best $5 ever spent and definitely a favorite baby product of ours! I like how the body of the elephant is easy for his little hands to hold and how it is dishwasher safe.
2.Fisher-Price Superstar Step n’ Play Piano– This bright and fun activity center keeps baby very interested because of the colors and there’s so much to do. With the glider rails he is able to walk/practice walking down the center of the center forwards and backwards. The seat allows him to spin around to all areas front and back, or simply stay stationary and bounce to practice standing while playing with the gadgets. What I love most is that it grows with him so he can continue to use it until he is a toddler, as it converts to have stand and play work stations for older kiddos once the seat is removed. The cute little piano base is fun for him too.
3.Dr. Brown’s Glass 8 Ounce Bottles– These bottles are great and I absolutely love using them! We have been using these since he was a newborn and while I was breastfeeding to allow my [Read more…]
