Hi guys! Happy love month! I hope you all have enjoyed your week thus far and enjoyed the saving map I posted last week and that wonderful Honey Garlic Chicken Courtney’s house posted. I hope this month is going great and full of love! Now speaking of love I know some of you have school aged littles and in the spirit of love send Valentines with them for the whole class. It’s so cute and adorable and some of you just remembered the fact that Valentine’s day is tomorrow and are now panicking about it. Well fear not cause fairy Godmother Bennita is here with a fun and simple idea to make valentines. I am a D.I.Y. person so as per usual I am making Rayne’s Valentines. This year we are doing robots with dino cards so today I will explain how to make robots!

Hello everyone. I hope you all had a great week. Today Courtney and I decided to kind of tag team.

Get Organized – Habit Tracker Challenge

I am here to confess that I haven’t really been following my own advice in my ‘5 Ways I’m Staying Motivated‘ post. So today I am starting at 30 Day Habit Challenge to help myself build healthy and consistent habits.

Most of the time I have a general list of things I need to do for the day and I do them but other things fall to the side if I don’t have something to check off. This can include something as simple as remembering to eat lunch because it wasn’t on my list of things to do. Seems kind of crazy to forget to eat lunch but when you’re focusing on other things hours can just fly by.

New Years in Vegas + My Resolutions

One of the ultimate dream trips Sean and I have always had is to be in Vegas, on the strip, for New Years. And after 13 years we are finally doing it!

View from the room.

Let me tell you it was crazy. Now, we weren’t actually down ‘on’ the strip however we were in our room looking over the strip. Which in my opinion was the better choice when you see how many people were down there! One of the weirdest things was seeing no cars on Las Vegas Blvd.

Blogmas Day 20 – Elf on the Shelf

The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition is a 2005 children’s picture book, written by Carol Aebersold and her daughter Chanda Bell, and illustrated by Coë Steinwart. The book tells a Christmas-themed story, written in rhyme, that explains how Santa Claus knows who is naughty and nice. It describes elves visiting children from Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve, after which they return to the North Pole until the next holiday season. The Elf on the Shelf comes in a keepsake box that features a hardbound picture book and a small scout elf. The authors say the story is from a family tradition started by Carol Aebersold for her twin daughters, Chanda Bell and Christa Pitts in Georgia, USA.
