In my life this week.....week 6

The Homeschool Chick

In my life this week...

We went easy this week, being my birthday (lol) and public schools were off for Winter break around here…we went to a few playdates and I was preparing for March lesson plans!  March plans - Dr Seuss, Massachusetts and Cats for the animal of the month... 

In our homeschool this week... We finished up our unit on Groundhogs and Pennsylvania.  Relaxed - but read a lot.

Places we're going and people we're seeing...
This week we visited my SIL and her kids and the kids loved seeing their cousins when it was not a b’day or holiday!   Quick trip to the library last night too!  Also a friend took me out to dinner for my b'day!

My favorite thing this week birthday of course and the great giveways I am sharing with everyone (open until Sunday at noon EST) In addition, all the nice things everyone said about the blog in our giveaway comments this week.  Such great blogging friends out there! 

What's working/not working for the homeschool area – not much to report….BUT Weight Watchers is working wonders for me personally!  Lost 6 pounds since Sunday night!

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have...just thanking God above for the path he has put us on!

A photo to share...

Zachary was the ring bearer in a good friends wedding last Saturday..was able to get a decent shot of us!

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's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
