Having one of those days....


So being sick and a mom of three LO's does not mesh too well. Obviously they don't realize that I am dragging my butt around, coughing, feverish etc...but they continue to be "them". Molly has had a major day pooping. We know she has Encopresis although not clinically diagnosed. She holds in her poop for days on end, until I either have to give her an enema or we give her Mirlax and then it's an entire day of small poops ALL DAY LONG...it's been one of those days...She just potty trained a week ago and I am so proud of her, only 1 accident. However she has only really pooped 1 time on her own in the potty, the rest have been a serious of soiling her underwear a little bit and then trying to go (typical of enco). This is sooo time consuming and exhausting. Today her belly was so big and she was in pain, I had to give her an enema, of course during this 1 hour ordeal the baby wakes up and is screaming...I am at my wits end today and just want to go into the bathroom and shut the door and not come out.

It's been a rainy day so no outside and the kids really need it, although the humidity is so high you can cut it with a knife. So outside might not have been a good idea anyway.

I found Samantha (1 yr old) standing on top of the breakfast bar today playing with the pots and pans hanging from the ceiling...all in a matter of me going to the bathroom for 30 seconds...sigh.... So now that I am in the throws of my own pity party...how is everyone elses day going?

Shining the Spotlight - Finding Home Farms

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you another company that I feel you should know about.  


I first learned about Finding Home Farms on Instagram. Little did I know, Laura, one of the owners of Finding Home Farms, lives local to me, in the Hudson Valley of New York. 
You can read all about Laura and her lovely family at her blog about page. 
 I immediately knew that I had to try their products in my home. I have grown to love their products (shop), Laura's sense of style and her blog. 
Can we just stop now and talk about their packaging first.  It speaks to you before even trying the products. Simple, organic and calming.  Isn't it just darling with the little dove.
sigh....insert smile

I love her blog tagline - Gather Create Connect - that says it all, there in three little words. YOU already know before going forward that you are in for a special treat. 
I am only going to speak to a few of their many products because these are what we use in our home with our family.

Happy New Year and welcome back to our first
Shining the Spotlight
for 2017! 

 I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are settled back into your routines.







Today I am so excited to introduce you to a company that has such a wonderful purpose behind it!  Jessica Griffis is a 17 year old college student paying her way through college selling Hilltop Design simple, natural and homemade products.  Jessica was also home educated!!! (dear to my heart)

Ya'll know I am all about the package as first impressions are so important. Don't you just love this sticker/stamp that she had on her package!  Spoke to me before I even opened it up and smelled the freshness of the products. 

I was impressed with the smell of the products, not overwhelming and artificial smelling at all. I felt safe using them on myself and my children. 

There are lip balms, lotions, scrubs, body butter, bath bombs and more.  The scrubs rival any other name brand and the bath bombs are THE BOMB!   The products are very …

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you a company that  not only meets but exceeds my expectation.  In service and product. 
Rustic Honey




The owner's name is Lauren Moran and I can see why her shop is so successful!  Rustic Honey is a lifestyle boutique. They offer women's clothing and accessories, children's wear, home goods, vintage finds, handmade gifts and more!  Let's look at this business card first. First impressions are everything in my book.  (I did not get a picture of the adorable chalkboard wrapping that the box was wrapped in but it was so cute!)


It's cute, to the point and shows her style.


Not even talking about the farmhouse towel that I ordered yet...but come on a hand written note to me personally and has all her social media outlets on there also. Clever!  On the opposite side of this personalized note is the cutest quote and picture. 

Ok I am getting to the towel I ordered..it's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
