We celebrated New Year’s with some of our good friends last night and, unlike the usual, we stayed out way past our bedtime. I can actually say that this is the second year in a row now that I made it to the midnight kiss without falling asleep first.
The holiday season is typically a time of busyness for so many of us. Especially when you have lots of different places to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas.
You have to spend time at your parent’s house and his parent’s house and step-parents and grandparents and… you get the point.
But something you might not know about me… A “fun fact” as we like to call it on our Dollars and Roses podcast. (more…)
Occasionally my kids get super excited about certain projects…and this candy cane tutorial is definitely one of them.
My oldest learned how to make these at school from his awesome teacher and he’s been making them every day since. He taught both of his brother how to do it and now they are all hooked.
To say that my house is full of paper candy canes would be a huge understatement. In fact, they’ve used so much of my printer paper that I no longer have any left.
Parker asked if we could make a video and show all mommy’s blog friends how to do it.
If there is one thing I have learned during my ten years of marriage it’s that praise… can take you a long way.
Giving praise that is.
Of course, “getting” praise is even better.
Let’s be honest, we all like to feel appreciated. We like to feel needed. And loved.
And like we mean something to someone.
So when my husband suggested that we do a ‘Giving Praise‘ challenge for our next Dollars and Roses Love Challenge I was super excited.
One, because my love language just so happens to be? (more…)
First things first… there might be some major cash up for grabs today. And you could possibly win it.
Every December we do a Christmas Cash giveaway and it’s truly been so fun to be able to bless someone with extra cash during a time of year when it’s needed.
In years past, we have heard such encouraging things from the winner on how it’s really made their holiday more joyful!
So, this year? We’re at it again.
