Etsy Friday Favorites #3

Here are this week's picks!
Apparel: I have been on the hunt for an outfit for Maili to wear for her birthday party coming up. So...of course the first place I turn to is Etsy. Love to support my fellow SAHM(s.) I came across this outfit and pleasantly to my surprise, she is local to me which is Jacksonville, FL.

Thrifty Thursdays #11

I think this is the most exciting of all the new blogs I have done this week since coming off my blogging break. I usually post a discount or coupon a business may be having that has an expiration date. This is what makes this so great...there is no expiration date....okay, okay...let me just cut to the chase.

Not a paid endorsement, personal experience!
This is the nation's (USA) first ever Hybrid Wi-Fi and Cell Service.

Purging Momma's Swagger Wagon

This morning after nearly a week of having an unidentifiable, yet pleasant smell present in my Ford Freestar Mini Van, I decided to bite the bullet and try to find this smell even though honestly, it did actually make the van smell nicer than normal…bad, I know…

So, after dropping off the kids at school, making sure my oldest had a refill on his daily medication needed at school and visiting two school offices to change the number of my cellphone in the records…I pull into my driveway at home, turned up K-LOVE the station I LOVE LOVE LOVE and got to work.

Painting Her Pink

Phew! I'm back! Well, it has been such a busy holiday season for us here in our home. So many family and school functions there was one entire week I didn't come home until after I picked up all the children from school because I was at one school or another every single day. I now look forward to getting back into the swing of things and blogging more. I am pretty excited because of the potential.
