Weekly Wrap Up

Happy November! 

Only a few more weeks left of 2015 - can you believe it?

Halloween weekend was perfect weather and lots of ghoulish fun!  We had another homeschooling family over for a little HomeGhoul Halloween Party.  Always a fun time! 

We trick or treated with friends after we went to the Halloween Haunted House at Sammie's martial arts school. 

People in our area really do it up right!
We really did not have too much "book work" this week and it was a nice break...
The weather was unseasonably warm this week here in NY and we took advantage of that by going to the beach/lake for the afternoon on Tuesday. 

We found so many animal prints in the sand on Tuesday.  From horse prints to deer to coyote and wild turkey.  It was fun looking for all the different prints. So many animals call this park their home - kinda surprised we did not see bear.

Wednesday the children went to their grandmothers for the day and night. She brought them home on Thursday late afternoon. I had a day and 1/2 to do whatever I wanted! Hubby and I had a much needed date night with a great dinner and live music.

Thursday - I shopped a little, rested a little, cleaned a little, organized a little, got a manicure and ran a million and one errands. It was a nice break but I missed them also.

This weekend - soccer games and some fun at the library with a crafty afternoon!

Enjoy the weekend and you can find me and other homeschoolers linking up at:

I love going to the beach! The weather is always unpredictatable around this time of year. I am visiting from Weekly Wrap Up.

I love the animal prints! My children would have loved to spend the day finding those on the beach.

It's always nice to have a small break from everyone! Sounds like a fun week.

My son had the exact same Pikachu costume this year. He's still wearing it around the house as pajamas.

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!�…
