DIY Microwavable Bean Bag ~ Back to School Teacher Gift

What seems like many moons ago, but in reality it was only 8 years ago, I was at the receiving end at school. I was a Kindergarten teacher, accepting (and prying) my students from their parents into my classroom. My heart still goes out to the Kindergarten teachers, the children AND the parents because I have been on all sides of the situation and none of them are easy. I also still remember the feeling of a completely exhausted body after the first day of school. You see, I spent a physically labour intensive week leading up to the first … Continue reading

Dad’s Deserve Some Props Too! {GIFT SUGGESTIONS}

I just had a conversation with my hubby last weekend about how I felt Dads deserve many more props than they get.

Lately, my ears have been perked up to several different conversations about Dads. These conversations are between women complaining about their husbands, dance moms talking about dance dads, … Continue reading

That special silver pen is a memory that I will carry with me always and now, I have a new Parker Pen which I am so excited about as I do miss my old pen.
