It was a BIG Day for change..

Friday was a big day for change in our house. Our littlest one (Sammie, age 20 months) was so excited and watched out the window with anticipation as her new "big girl bed" arrived.  Sam is not a great sleeper and we are hoping that this helps. It is our last resort....

She was very excited!  So far, Friday and Saturday night, she did decent....slept for 5 hours on Friday without waking and calling for me....then last night (hubby was out of town in Atlantic City, so I was flying solo) she did not do as good...only slept for 2 hours before waking up.   Either way, she is not in our bed (she was showing signs of climbing out of bed so no other choice than to put her in with us until her bed arrived) anymore and on to bigger and better things!


Waiting with her big sister, Molly, for the Sears truck to arrive.


Here is the space her bed was going to go.

"Jump" she kept saying....


Before her new duvet cover was on...but her animals were all snuggled already!

Bed all made up with her new duvet cover and sham (Thank you Bubby and Pottery Barn Kids), reading at night time.


Molly's bed...matchy matchy!


Close up of the pattern, LOVE IT...will bring the girls thru their pre-teen years for sure.


Reading together at night....so far, pretty good!

oo yay for the big girl bed! I hope it gets better and better! We recently just got Sammy a My Tot Clock.. it changes colors when he is allowed to get up (from nap time and in the morning) and has helped us a bunch. He use to wake up at an hour before Tim and I and yell for us to let him out of his room (he has a door knob cover on since he can get out of the house.. and has). Since we got the clock we have been able to bump his time back to a more reasonable time to get up!

YEAH for big girl beds. My daughter never went to sleep easily as a little one...and still doesn't. However, it's getting better....she has always been an early riser. I've often wondered if some children truly have different sleep clocks and needs. My husband can survive on 4 hours/night. I can't....I think my little girl is like her Daddy. Blessings on a full night of sleep and congrats on this big step!

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!�…
