Win a Kindle Fire

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

Ebooks are a weakness of mine and my Kindle is loaded with them.  There’s a catch though - I don’t like to spend a lot of money on eBooks, but give me a good discount and I’m all in!

Now I haven’t read every single book that I’ve purchased (yet), but there are many stored on my computer for future reference and reading. When I’m in need of something to read, I love that I can flip through my ebooks until I find something that catches my eye and just start! There have been so many authors and subjects that I might not have given a second glance, but quickly became new favorites because I picked them up at a discount.



The 2015 Ultimate Homemaking Bundle is full of books like that - but even better! In addition to 76 ebooks, it includes ecourses, pdf downloads, online conferences, and gifts valued at $1,290. In case you were wondering, That breaks down to 30 cents per book… a huge discount! (And yes, everything is backed by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.)

A Peek at What’s Inside

This is my second year as a contributing author to the bundle. I am thrilled that one of my printable packs, the Pocket Chart Bundle, is included as a part of this special sale. In additional to several homeschool resources, here are the topics you’ll see inside:

Cleaning… create a healthy, toxin-free home
DIY/Homemade… fun and frugal ways to express your personal style
Devotionals and Faith… take a break from the daily grind to renew yourself
Finances… build a budget that works
Cooking & Meal Planning… serve easier, tastier meals in less time
Holidays & Special Events… brighten up old family traditions and create new ones
Homeschooling… homeschool with grace and ease
Marriage… heat up your marriage
Motherhood… find peace, balance & joy in mothering
Organizing… conquer the clutter and simplify your life
Pregnancy & Babies… enjoy a healthy pregnancy and prepare to nurture your baby
Health & Wellness… soothe aches & pains with natural remedies, and
Working from Home… hone your talents, live your passions and earn money to help your family

Take a look through the categories, as well as the full list of eBooks and eCourses. There are some fabulous resources from bloggers like 1+1+1=1, Money Saving Mom, Keeper of the Home, Homeschool Creations, $5 Dinners, The Better Mom, We Are That Family, and more! From housekeeping, mothering, cooking, to homeschooling – there is a little something in each category that will help you out!

I am in love! It has so much stuff that I didn’t know where to start. I started at the top of the list and plan on working my way through each eBook! I immediately enrolled in my eCourses while it was fresh on my mind. I am so excited!

Because the Kids Aren’t Getting Any Younger

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

Kids Easter 2015-1

Zachary, 10; Laurianna, 13; Kaleb, 8; McKenna, 12

So the kids are growing up. Proof positive in the picture above. In case you don’t recognize them - well, those are our four. It’s been a bit since I’ve shared a picture and looking at the family pictures on our wall in comparison - yikes.

Easter Sunday was a beautiful day and a chance to grab a few snapshots to document just how much they’ve grown and how beautiful (or handsome) they are becoming, both inside and out.

Kids Easter 2015-1-4

McKenna would love to have you notice that yes, she IS taller than her older sister. This is the first time in a long time that she has worn her hair down, which we love!

These two girls can be the best of friends or drive each other crazy all in the span of 15 minutes. They are growing into beautiful young ladies (that in and of itself sounds too grown up!).

Kids Easter 2015-1-5

And the boys - well, they aren’t so little anymore either. There’s a part of me that keeps thinking Kaleb is six. He’s eight. Sigh. It should be noted that Zachary wanted a pink shirt for Easter. He got plaid.

Easter Rick and Jolanthe-1-4

Rick and I aren’t getting any younger either - but you know what? I wouldn’t have it any other way. At all. This man is all sorts of amazing and I am blessed to have him and those crazy kids along for the ride.

Just Write

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

Writing is something that I haven’t done here lately, because in truth - it all just feels overwhelming at times. Or that I don’t have anything consequential to really put into words.

{I’d say I don’t have any words, but if you know me, I never seem to lack for words.}

Life continues to move on. Our kids are growing. Trying to keep up with them and the many moods can honestly be quite exhausting. And rewarding. And frustrating.

This parenting thing isn’t always the easiest task. Especially because I find so many glaring faults of my own being mirrored in my children. The things that I am asking them to stop doing {for the upteenth time}, well - can you guess where many of those things were learned?

So sometimes it’s easier not to write. Much of me wants to just enjoy the time that I have with our family, which is why I haven’t written much.

But really, there has been lots to tell of {other than the chicken and the rabbit that died, or all the snow we’ve enjoyed, or the braces someone now has}.

While life has been happening, there is lots to write of - but sometimes this mom has a hard time putting it all into words that do it justice.

When I Was Little

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

This Christmas each of the girls received a Just Between Us journal for moms and daughters. And really - it has been fabulous. Rather than staring at a blank page, there are journal prompts for us to write back and forth with each other and get conversations started. Both girls have jumped into this with excitement and I love seeing what is on their minds and hearts, especially when their personalities begin showing through the ink.

{and p.s. this is posted with permission}

From one of my daughters this morning:

“When I was little I thought you were the best mom in the world. Now that I'm older, I know you are.

(I got that from a Hallmark card).

(But it's true).

(I also thought Santa was real).”

I may have laughed out loud at that journal entry. Because this girl just cracks me up at times, and this is just one of the many examples of her brain at work.

You have to love it.

Sound of Music LIVE

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

One of my favorite movies growing up was the Sound of Music. Way back in the day {before we had DVDs to pull out and watch at any time}, I remember waiting for Julie Andrews to sing her heart out each year via our tiny television set. Our family now owns the Sound of Music on DVD and has watched it a few times, but I am SO very excited to see that NBC will be showing a LIVE version of The Sound of Music!
Thursday, December 5th at 8/7c, you can catch this 3 hour version of the stage production of The Sound of Music on your local NBC channel. This isn’t a remake of the movie {for those of you die-hard Julie Andrew fans}, but a full-scale musical based on the original Broadway musical. Carrie Underwood will be performing the leading role of Maria, and the characters boast many Broadway performers.
This is one tv production that I am truly excited to watch with the kids - LIVE, no less - and know that it will be family friendly. Do you have fond memories of the old Sound of Music movie growing up? Think you’ll be tuning in to watch this?
