When Gav was in preschool, I wanted to do all the Pinterest-y Valentine things for his class. Back then it was easy though, there were five kids in his class. Total. His class sizes have certainly grown in size now and I just felt like DIY was going to be too much. But I came up with some fun, simple, cost friendly Valentines that you can put together just as quickly as the store bought variety. Bonus points: They lend themselves to be candy free! Be sure to scroll all the way down for the free printable sheets!
It’s November! What?!
Well I hope that this post finds you happy and well rested from your extra hour of sleep! But if you’re like me your night comprised of your toddler hyped up on the high of Halloween and some sugar, your congested 6 week old not sleeping well (which basically means just more than usual), and then everyone still got up at 6:30, you may be just as thankful as I am for caffeine! Glorious, beautiful, delicious caffeine!
Today I’m sharing this fun print over on Style at Home Mom!
Coffee definitely tops off my mommyhood thankful list, you know, behind my children, of course! Coffee is a gift from heaven and proof that God’s wants us to be happy (and to function).
But, let’s be real, there really is so much to be thankful for and each Sunday this month I plan to share one of those things. Some may be a little silly and some will be a bit closer to the heart, but I’m very blessed and thankful nonetheless!
Thank you for being you, coffee!
And Also a big thank you to Rachel from Style at Home Mom!
So tell me…what are YOU thankful for?!

That lovey holiday is right around the corner! Which also makes me think, how in the world are we already at the end of January?!
Today I’m taking a look back a sharing some of my favorite Valentine inspired projects. No matter how you celebrate or who you celebrate with, it’s always nice to give someone a gift or make something for someone you love.
I LOVED doing this with my hubby. In the days leading up to Valentine’s Day we wrote little notes to one another and put them in the box. Then, when Valentine’s Day arrived, we opened up our letters and read them. No money was spent, just love shared. Totally doing this again this year!
Oh wow, this is definitely a “Flashback Friday”! This simple and easy photo booth set up was so much fun to do because it involved a lot of kisses. All you really need is a sign (free printable in the original post) and some lipstick. Squishy, adorable baby cheeks are optional, but highly recommended!
So, this is not technically a Valentine project, but a sparkly way to get in the mood for love! I mean, what says “LOVE” more than a shiny, sparkly heart?
A round up of free, love inspired prints to decorate to your heart’s content!
This works great for the photo booth or to decorate your mantel. Inexpensive and easy to create!
When in doubt, just put a heart on it with this DIY heart stencil! Any plastic lid will work for this project which makes it reusable so you can use it over and over and over…and over!
What are some of your favorite valentine projects?
If you’re like me, school supplies and planners are just wonderful to you! I’m always looking for the “perfect planner” and while I’m pretty sure that’s an Erin Condren Life Planner, I don’t have to funds to shell out for one for the time being. That being said, I found a solution to my constant planner purchasing. I narrowed down what I really need one for the most and created exactly that. For now, what I need is something simple to plan out blog posts for a week or two. Weekly planner it is!
This fun and simple layout was doodled by yours truly and is all yours for free! (For personal use only please!)
You can use the .jpg file to print the clean and simple white paper version or, using the .png file and print on fun and colorful paper. The possibilities are endless if you just take a turn down the scrapbook paper aisle!
It’s been a rough couple of days. Mr. G has been sick, like sick sick, but he’s been to the doctor and gotten some meds and I think (praying, knocking on wood, etc) he’s on the mend! Today I bring you my motto for dealing with these very situations…Eat, Sleep, and Drink More Coffee!
Honestly, this could just be the “Mommy Motto”and can be translated as such:
Eat (all the feelings), Sleep (what is that?), and Drink More (and more and more) Coffee!
ENJOY! (and try not to pull your hair out, just drink more coffee!)
