Let's Hear it for the Boys

Linking up for the first time with the M.O.B. Society and Let's Hear it for the Boy's Linky party going on!  Do you have something special or a story you want to brag about regarding your boys?  Do it!  

Zachary is such a smart and talented young man.  His imagination and engineering mind when it comes to machines and LEGOS just amazes me!  He has build some pretty awesome things using his Legos...I want to brag about that today!

He is always thinking up something to make out of various misc. bricks.

this was a moving elevator he made out of LEGO Education pieces

some of his favorite kits from LEGO Education

He submitted a piece into the LEGO EDUCATION CHALLENGE in 2010. The theme was
Renewable Energy. He made a Police station that ran on solar power.

His DESIGN BY ME kit. He designed this on the computer and then
his Grandma bought the plans, and they ship you the LEGOs and plans in your own
box. Pretty Cool!


He helped build this BIG APPLE by building a red brick to put into it.

Can't let a birthday go by without having a LEGO Themed one!

Just having fun with LEGOS

As you can tell by the picture, he was about 5 here..this was one of his 1st very hard
kits - Star Wars - even at the age of 5 he put this together! 

If you ask him "What do you want to be when you grow up?"  He will say
"A Lego Deisgn Master"

We are going to LEGOLAND in Orlando in October and he can't wait!

On to my other son, the 1st born.!

(seen here with his girlfriend, Kerri)

I am so proud of who he has become. Being a single mom for most of his youth
was certainly not easy, but we made it thru!   He has a great job, great head on his shoulders 
and is going places for sure!  

Love you babe!

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!�…
