Birthday week continues & some community service

It's our son's 7th birthday at the end of this week (the 30th to be exact) and we kicked off the "Birthday Week" with a Backyard Birthday Beach Bash... in case you missed it HERE is the link.   

Today is a rainy day and perfect for Phase II of the Birthday Week!  We went to Toys R Us to spend his $ 85 in TRU gift cards and then to Friendly's for lunch (he had a FREE lunch coupon for being in the Friendly's Birthday Club)....BUT FIRST we had to stop at our favorite supply store and purchase some school supplies to donate at our Carnival for a Cause (which is a week from today). A group of local mom's and myself and putting on a carnival for inviting guests and the "entry" fee are school supply donations to be donated to some homeless families in our area....

Here is what we were able to snag (boy the sale stuff goes quick there!)

Most of the supplies were either .50 or 1.00  so we did not even have to break
the bank to help out others in need!  

On to Toys R Us.....of course we had to get the FREE birthday balloon and crown...and they announce the child's name over the speaker so others can wish him a 
happy birthday also...

how'd I know...LEGOS...geezzz

Even I got some great deals today....Crayola was all BOGO! 

Off to Friendly's....

This is one of the coolest presents he got over the weekend...a LEGO calendar
he has to change each mother found it at the LEGO store in
Manhattan!  He loves it...can't hurt that a little learning is thrown
in there too!

I can't believe it's the end of July already....Summer....wizin' by!

Great day and awesome ice cream! Please for forgive this random question but I feel like your site is where I may have seen what I'm looking for. I was in NYC this past weekend and while on the subway I seen a girl who looked super familiar. She said she was Cinderella for Princess parties around NY..By any chance have you had one of these princess parties?
Hope he had a great bday! We've done the TRU birthday thing too. We missed out this year though. And I love that lego calendar. Very neat.

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!�…
