Time-out for "ME" time

I love being a stay a home, home educating, do-it-all for my children and husband kinda mom.  There does come a time when the balancing act gets a little too "heavy" on one side. 

That is when I KNOW I need a time out from my every day responsibilities and duties and let my hair down.  This week is THAT week!  I can't tell you in words how excited I am to be having some "girl time" towards the end of the week! 

 These two ladies will be a guests in our home.  

My gal pal, Deb!  We have been friends for over 15 years. Deb is such a great friend and so kind to our children. She travels 3 hours each way to come and bake all our children's birthday cakes!  She is so talented. Not only with her baking talents, but God has given her the gift of singing!  Oh man she is good!  

LaDonna!  My Sista from another Mista (I have several of these types of friends).  We have so much in common and the only way to describe our friendship (which has been under a year) is to say it's OF GOD and FROM GOD

 The way in which we met is a story you MUST read! 

 I encourage you to hop over to her blog Santa Beso  and check it out!

LaDonna, is leaving her husband and her children for 4 days to hop on a plane from Texas to NY to come see me and spend quality time together!

I have so many wonderful, fun, girly things planned for us!  We will be going here...

and seeing HIM in concert!

My husband has planned a wonderful dinner (he is making for us) one night and so many other fun things!

My blogging will probably be a less from Thursday - Monday this week!

I ask you to pray for the safe travels of these two women and that the weather is sunny and nice for our outings!  Also pray for LaDonna's family back in Texas that they will be safe without her there. 

Pray for Deb's parents, as she does help care for them, that they will be ok and without any incidents while she is away!

Thanks in advance!

Be Blessed!

La Donna is so excited. At our mom's group Valentine party the other day, she looked like a little kid giddy over Santa as she was talking about the trip! What a hoot! I can't wait to see pics from both blogs. Have fun and be safe.

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!�…
