Farmhouse Friday

Happy snowy Friday from New York!  WOW did we get slammed yesterday with little over a foot of snow. Thankful that hubster can work from home on days like that. 

  It was beautiful to watch it fall and the kids got out for a little while to play but sledding was tough. It was a light powdery snow, hard to make trails.  The dog LOVES the snow. I posted a few videos on IG of her prancing around. 

Last Friday the girls presented their SPACE projects at the monthly Homeschool presentation day at our library. There were six children who presented. 

 Sammie did her report on Astronaut Food and the history of it. Molly did hers on animals that have gone into space.  Both did well and set the bar high for future presentations!

Next month's topic is HUMAN BODY. 

On Saturday, a friend invited us to a local school play - Shrek Jr.!!  The girls, Bubby and I went. It was great!!  I was so impressed with the acting and singing. Fun time! Of course ice cream was in order after at Carvel. 

On Sunday,  we hosted a family Superbowl Party. That's all I can say about the Superbowl without getting misty eyed. 

Sammie is continuing with her quest to be the best of the best!  She is taking 3 martial arts classes each week and helping out when asked also.

  I am also trying to find that balance again with my working out, eating right and family time. (not easy folks)

   On Thursday it was near 60 here and then blam the snow hit. It was a nice break to not wear boots and heavy coats for a day! 

For school this week we did a lot of Valentine related school work and a lot of reading.

Weekend happenings:  

Today I am hoping to get out of the house and take the kids to see the LEGO Batman Movie!  

Saturday - martial arts class in the morning and we are appliance shopping for the new kitchen in the afternoon.

Sunday - church and the girls have friends coming over for a playdate. 

In case you missed our Shining the Spotlight post on Monday here is a link to it. Great company you should check out!

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!�…
