Quick gift Poll for Moms and Dads


Father’s day is around the corner and it has got me thinking about some things that I can’t resist but share.

I’m an easy-to-please kind of momma that does not require much and I don’t mind receiving a Mother’s day gifts the everyone in my household could enjoy, like a Kitchenaid Mixer. However, I’m curious as to how my fellow moms and bloggers feel about this idea.

Would you rather be gifted with something only you can use or you don’t mind sharing?

Please leave your answer in the comments area below. I’m really curious about your preferences.

“Start Doing What You Want.” Warren Buffet

9. Warren Buffett, 86

“There comes a time when you ought to start doing what you want. Take a job that you love. You will jump out of bed in the morning. I think you are out of your mind if you keep taking jobs that you don’t like because you think it will look good on your resume. Isn’t that a little like saving up sex for your old age?”    Warren Buffet

Life Lessons from Mariska Hargitay

Hargitay has a very life-affirming personality now, thanks in no small part to her father. She told Good Housekeeping,  “The message I got from my father was that life is hard, but you just don’t quit,” Hargitay says. “I am grateful that I didn’t let fear get the best of me. It only holds you back from possibilities and greatness. You’ve got to kick fear to the side, because the payoff is huge.”

She also said, “I don’t focus on what I can’t control,” saying. “If I can’t control it, let’s move on. I think that we have all been swallowed up in ‘shoulda-woulda-coulda.’ You figure it out and you walk tall and go through it. Some days it’s chicken, and some days it’s feathers.” Smart advice.

How to Create Nature-Inspired Decor on a Tight-budget

Last week, 2 of my kiddos were sick and would not be allowed back in school until they had been fever-free for 24 hours without medication. Sure, I was home with sick kids but the weather was great! It was 68 – 79 degrees and that meant we could spend some time outside. I’m a natural lover of the outdoors and I don’t miss an opportunity to enjoy the sun, fresh air and the freedom found in nature. And it felt good!

With that said, after spending some time indoors after breakfast, we headed to the backyard. The boys brought their soccer balls with them to play with. As I sat on the deck steps and watched them, I could not help but admire the shape of the leafless trees outside our yard. After sitting for a while, I decided to get up and play the kids. As I played with them, I noticed some long stemmed twigs on the ground and immediately thought about gathering some for a vase. The kids joined me after I picked up a few and It was a fun five-minute activity for us. As we gathered the twigs, they asked if they were good and long enough.
