Family day......


Sunday
Day of Rest
Be Calm
Breath Deep
Rest Up


None of those describe our Family Day today!  Original plans were to go to the Bronx Zoo (would like to use our membership this Winter...) however, between Eric's back not feeling the best and it was snowing this morning  (turned out to be nice afterall if we would have had faith)  So instead we packed everyone into the truck and headed to "Daddy's Mall" (the mall closest to Daddy's work...or so the kids call it...which honestly it's not the mall closets but that's what they call it).  





Had to stop at Sephora and pick up my Birthday Present (FREE with their perks membership, which is also FREE)


Snagged this little guy along with 2 others from Pottery Barn. Originally $ 8 at Christmas time, however, $ .97 now!  ZINGO!


At Cheesecake Factory - Zachary using his travel art kit that I bought from a great Etsy shop called UPTOTE. LOVE THESE. I bought three of them...2 with crayons for the girls and 1 for Zachary with markers. The best things for times out!  (let you in on a secret...you will have a chance to win one of these babies with crayons soon!)


Snickers Cheesecake...Yes I ate it all! (not the whippped cream though)


Of course...how would a trip to the mall be without it...


Time for a ride on the carousel.




Worn out....way home...lol..Cousin IT Molly.



This is a Melissa & Doug Travel USA License Plate Game. When Zachary sees a new state he turns over the little plates to red and it also has the capitals on them. Look at all the states we he found on our short 40 min trip to the mall.....Great for carschooling!

Fun! Can't resist the cheesecake at cheesecake factory! AND... we don't go on a roadtrip without the license plate game either! Even the adults have a blast with that one! It gets pretty competitive in our vehicle!

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!�…
