Week in Review

Happy Friday!  It's a long weekend for us as Daddy is home on Monday in observance of MLK Jr Day.   Hoping they all get out to get skiiing and use those passes we bought last Summer!  

If you did not check out the Monday post for the #NoSpendChallenge there is still time!

What's happened this week....

It's been relatively quiet on the home front. The weather has been bitter and we have not been able to do anything outside all week (boooo).  The only "outing" was their gym class on Wednesday (which comes to an end in a few weeks).  We had a brief power outage one day and the girls decided to do some Art For Kids (without Art For Kids). Molly took charge and was teaching Sammie a tutorial she remembered from the site - drawing Anna from Frozen. It was so cute listening to Molly teach. 

I am doing great on my healthy eating and exercise.  Treadmill every day and upped my incline to a 6!  Those less than perfect cookies you see are my new saving grace for sweets.  Sweet potato chocolate chip cookies.  YES YES YES. I found the recipe on Pinterest and will be making these every week!  

As of 2 am today, Zachary has been vomiting every 30 mins or so....need I say that we have not gotten any sleep since then 8(    Pray for him..he is a worrier and thinks he will die of dehydration. I am assuring him this wont be the case, but I don't think he believes me.

We have a low key weekend with some skiing tomorrow morning (fingers crossed) and church on Sunday.  I am working on a "booklet" for when we sell the house with before and after pictures and some highlights.  Really praying hard on finding the right home for our family.

I am linking up to Collage Friday over at Homegrown Learners and Weekly Wrap-Up

In case you missed this healthy morning muffin recipe from last week - 

Until Monday (new post on the #NoSpendChallenge) 
 Be Blessed!

Ohh no so so sorry to hear about Zachary! I will be praying for him to feel better and for the worry to be taken away!

Sounds like a cozy week! Staying in the house is something I'd love to be able to do when the weather is icky. Since both me and hubby work outside the home we have to leave daily, however, after a freezing rain scare this week we got to stay in and relax. However, for us that means the kids get more school done since both parents are home, lol!
Hope Zachery is feeling better by now and is not so worried. Enjoy your sweet potato cookies (the mind boggles slightly - do they taste like normal cookies only a bit healthier or do they taste of sweet potato?)
Have a great weekend!

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!�…
