Wrapping Up the Week - Collage Friday

Happy Friday!

Thanks for stopping by for our weekly wrap up. 

We are expecting some snow this weekend and I am praying they are not wrong. The kids and hubby have ski passes to a local mountain and it's killing me that the money is being wasted and I want to get out on the 4-wheelers and tear it up!

What happened here this week

Sunday:  Football and family - my older son and his wife and our "grandpuppy" came up for a visit. Fun snacks, dinner and oh that dessert! 

  • Working on the February plans for school.
  • Sammie and Molly: both have had some challenges this week with book work. I have tried to be patient with Sammie, but it's very hard sometimes. Pray for me please!
  • LEGOS:  Oh yes, the LEGO happenings..LOVING all of it and they are getting so creative with their play.

Where Are We Wednesday:  Hawaii

Reading a lot!  
HIGHLIGHT of the week:  We watched A LEGO Brickumentary (hour and 1/2) on Amazon PRIME (FREE). It was soooo great.  It went from the beginning up to current date with the history of LEGOS. IT was narrated by Justin Batemen (as the minifig above).  All of us learned so much.  

What you might have missed on the blog this week:

Monday Check in for No Spend January

What you did not see in pictures:
  • Martial Arts Class
  • Sewing Class
  • Trampoline Class
  • Presidential studies
  • CLEANING - LOTS OF CLEANING - Prepping the house to go on the market. Simplifying and decluttering. 

What I am obsessed with this week:

You Tube Channel:  Brothers Green Eats

What's happening this weekend:  

Hopefully skiing...packing for our vacation (leave on Monday) and more cleaning. We have 1 house to look at on Sunday afternoon. 

Hope you have a great weekend and you can find me linking up at these great blogs:

Those desserts look so yummy! And we're definitely going to be checking out the Lego movie! We got Amazon Prime for a Christmas gift and we rarely think to really take advantage of it!

Sounds like you accomplished a lot this week. That large pan cookie looks so good. You do a lot of out of the house activities. I don't know how you fit it all in!
Nita said…
Oh my hang in there, patience isn't my strong suite either. And last night we were up til 11pm doing work. Eek! I'm visiting from Weekly Wrap Up.

The chocolate chip skillet cookie looks amazing!!! Glad you were able to get a lot of cleaning done. Happy house-hunting!

I hope you got snow. We have about a foot. That cookie dish looks so good. I hope next week goes better on the book learning side.
Blessings, Dawn

So, how much snow did you get? It's kind of strange that it's the south getting the snow that we usually get! We didn't get a single flake out of that big storm. Sam would love that Lego Movie...but no Prime! :sigh: I hope you had a FAB time on vacation!

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!�…
