• Feature Friday Link Party

    Welcome To Friday Feature
    Karren and I hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones and
    Enjoying The Holidays!!!!

    How was everyone’s December going so far? Anyone all into the holiday season so far? Decorations up, telling everyone Merry Christmas? And on that note, how many of you guys say Merry Christmas verses Happy Holidays? We are lucky enough to live in a small town, and travel to the big city near by often. It gives us a nice opportunity to talk to the girls about when it is ok to say Merry Christmas verses when it is a bit more PC to say Happy Holidays. But my opinion is that any saying with a smile is so much nicer in today’s world; then not saying anything at all.

    On that note, lets get our first party of the holiday season up and going.

    been a parent for all of my adult life, I still found so much useful
    advice in this book. It is worth the read, even for us seasoned mamas. Read the whole post here The Perfect Parent

    Friday Feature Linky Weekly Party

    If you stopped by last week you would have met my wonderful Co-Host from Oh My Heartsie Girl. If not, then what are you waiting for. Go and check her out… Like Now. Don’t worry we will wait.

    {Cue weird elevator music}

    Okay now that you are back, lets get this party started:

     So excited to share a few posts with you!! Our first post is a big trend right now: Plaid. Hello 1990. But plaid is being worn in a very different way this go around. No more lumberjack looks this time, thank you very much.
    Check out how to wear it as an accent:


    Also I am sharing this amazing drugstore (aka inexpensive) find. Most of
    us wear foundation on a daily basis, some of us spend a small fortune on it.
    I know I did, totally thought that for a great, or really even a decent
    foundation, you had to shell out big bucks. This is so not the case. I
    found the BEST foundation, at the drugstore for a fraction of the cost.
    Check out this great find if you are spending to much on your foundation:Holy Grail of Foundations Then for my pick from last week Linky Party
    Pumpkin Rice Pudding from Gluten Free With Judee

    I am a HUGE rice pudding fan and I am a HUGE pumpkin fan. This amazing
    recipe combines the two in a super simple, even I can make this, dessert!!
    It will be on my to-make this weekend.Vegan Pumpkin RIce Pudding

    Party #23

    Is it just me or is summer just flying by? I can’t believe that our summer break is almost over. This is our last official week off. We will slowly start working on getting back into the routine this week. That means actually waking up at a decent time, we will start looking over the next year school work, and probably get started on it. I can’t get over, it seems like it was just the other day that we were so excited about months off and now we are getting ready for the school year. While I am looking forward to the structure and routine that the school year brings, I am so not ready for it. When do you all go back to school? Are you looking forward to it or are you not ready?

    Happy Monday!!! How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything fun? After having so many guests, we enjoyed some much needed family relaxing time. We didn’t do anything exciting, but it was so what the doctor ordered. Our tradition is when tucking the kids into bed, we ask them, “What was your favorite part of the day?”. This was we end each and every day on the best positive moment. All weekend the girls said their favorite part was all day. They could not pin down only one best part. As a parent, these few moments, make me so happy. We must be doing something right if all day was their favorite parts.

    Last week, while it was not our largest party, it was so awesome to see how many click through each person got!! Hopefully you all found some great posts. I know that I LOVED what all everyone linked up and so excited to see what you are all up this week.

    Party #19

    Who is ready for another week? Normally I am vehemently against Mondays. Hence why this party is on Monday mornings, to give me something to look forward to. As many of you understand, being a homeschool mama Monday is the start to the week. They are always crazy for us, and it is just ugh. But I gotta admit, I am kinda diggin Monday’s now that the kids are out of school. We kinda loaf around. Slow to get out of bed and get dressed. We go to the store; no rush, and no one is there. I mean who does the Costco run on a Monday morning? This one!!

    Onto the features from last week are:

    blush1 picmonkey

    Beauty Under 10-

    On The Daily Express-
    Fashion Spending Habits

    Happy Monday!! How was everyone’s Father’s Day? Did you guys do anything fun and special for your guys? We always try, I mean we really really try. But I am a horrid gift giver. Trying to figure out what my husband of 12 years wants, is so impossible. It should be easy, I know him so well. We have been together forever. But man, I rack my brains for weeks and come up with nothing. It is so stressful. Then I feel horrible cause I think in our 12 years, I have given him two gifts that he (1) liked and (2) still has/uses. I think the issue is that he is such a mans man and I am such a girlie girl; so it is hard for me to move my brain that far to the other side just doesn’t work. And what manly man is going to get excited about clothes?

    Hopefully, you guys don’t suffer from the same ailment and that you had amazing Fathers Day gifts for all the men in your life. I am putting it behind me and starting another week.

    Lets get to this week’s features:


    Julie’s Lifestyle-
    Finding the Perfect Blush
    This was our post that got the most click throughs last week.


    Heart Loves Home-
    Mint + Coral Necklace
    How amazing are these colors together?

    **I hate having to nag and remind ya. But after you link up, please be sure to check out a few other posts. Lets be social**

    Party #16

    This was my girls first week off of school. Since we homeschool, in the past we have just schooled year-round. Taken a week here and there, but no big long sumer break. This year we doing things different, and we are having a proper summer break. Not entirely sure what to do for next 9 weeks, or how to keep the kids from bickering for the next  9 weeks. They really are great sisters, and they are each-others best friends. But, my girls are very scheduled kids, they like the routine of knowing what goes on every day. So this whole, no plans, lets see how the day goes, maybe we will go out or maybe we will stay in. Going by the seat of our pants type of life, is not sitting to well with them. So maybe it will just take a bit to get use to. Knowing my luck, once they are use to it; school will be starting back up. Any tips from mama’s that have survived past summers would be greatly appreciated.

    *I know that last week’s party fell on a holiday so we were all busy with BBQ’s and parties. But our click through ratio was really low. For the first time we just posted and ran. I hate nagging, but make sure that you take a moment to check out what everyone has been up to. If you like what you see leave a little love, everyone likes getting a comment. It is a party after all*

    Happy Memorial Day!!! To me Memorial Day is the kick off to summer. There are parties, barbecues, hamburgers, sweet tea, popsicles, swimming. So much fun. But I think that we should take a moment, to appreciate all the men and women who have dedicated their lives to protecting ours. I don’t think that we will ever truly understand what they go through or what they have sacrificed for all of us. From the bottom heart I so thankful for everything that they do.

    Well since it is Memorial Day, I think that we need to party!! The features this week are:

    EyesMy Favorite Drugstore Eye Makeup.
    This got the most click throughs this week.

    Lucky Number 13!! I cannot believe how fast this year is going. Can you believe that we are in May already. Cinco de Mayo actually. Anyone doing anything fun? I think that we will have tacos for dinner, seems a bit more festive then just chicken. We use ground turkey, trying to stay away from red meat, and black beans, corn, cheese. Pretty typical, but I do make my own tortillas. 

    Here is what you missed last week:
