Bathroom Re-Do

A few months ago I saw a picture on Etsy and fell in love with it. I wanted it for the boys bathroom and knew exactly what I was going to do in there.
Low and Behold, I was able to do everything to the bathroom a few weeks ago.
Hubby got me a new shower curtain and towels and accesories... I was so happy!!! What do you think?

The towels and shower curtain are from Target. The sports wall hanging is from Kirklands.
The towels have the boys initials on them. I had that done here.
This is the picture I got from this Etsy store. :)
The frame is from Wal Mart.

Tuesday 3Ts - Treasury

Over the weekend I learned how to make a treasury and now I am in LOVE! It is such an awesome way to advertise and so much fun! I've made 4 treasuries already. The first one was a FALL theme. Then a FOOTBALL theme. The 3rd one was a GHOST theme. And this BLUE one is my latest. I love them all! Take a minute and click on each link to check them out. :) ALSO, each treasury has had sales. One of them had 4 sales. I was stoked! When I put up the fall treasury, the first sale happened in like 10 minutes. Can you believe it. I promote these treausries like crazy!!! Keep a look out for more of my treasuries, there are plenty more to come. :)

Old Navy Deal

I just went to Old Navy and got both kids matching hoodies for $10. I am sooo excited. I got them each a navy hoodie. Now the hubby is telling me to go back and get them a gray one too. lol I will have to see if it's in my budget to do that and I may do so. $10 is a steal for a hoodie. It will be perfect for the boys to wear in the winter time. They have some cute ones for girls too. Check it out here.

My favorite season

I LOVE fall! It's my favorite time of the year. I love the colors, the decorations, the smell! This weekend my hubby helped me clean the house and then I put up all my fall decorations. I was so excited! Every year I try to buy some new items to add to my decorations. I think this year I want to get 4 pumpkins to put outside the front door. I have always wanted to do that! :) Do you decorate your house for fall?

One of my favorite parts of fall - I LOVE candy corn. But it has to be this one. For some reason I like the pumpkin ones better.

This is one of my favorite decorations I have. Aren't the scarecrows so cute?

Learning is FUN

Little man sure is enjoying school. I love that he likes to learn and hope it continues this way. Being that he only goes to school 3 days a week, we're also doing work at home. I really enjoy it too. I print out 3 sheets for us to work on. The letter of the week and we glue pieces of paper on it so he can learn to work with glue. Then I print an object that starts with the letter of the week so he can color and then I print traceable letters for him to work on his tracing - he doesn't care much for that one but we're working on it. lol

A is for Apple!
B is for Ball/Banana
C is for Cat!
After we finish our work, he proudly asks me to display his artwork. So I display it on his little school area for the week. He LOVES it.

Labor Day YUMMY

So for Labor Day my hubby cooked for me. He got a recipe for blue cheese hamburger. It was SOOOO good. He made roasted red potatoes for a side dish. I ate 1 burger and then half of one. It was delicious. He is a great cook and I love it when he cooks for us. I try to do most of the cooking because he works so much all day. But when he gets in the kitchen everything he makes turns out SUPER yummy!

A is for Apple!

Little man started school last week. Each week they spend time on a letter. So obviously last week was spent on the letter A. I bought 2 beautiful red apples and attached a little note on it to give to his teachers. They really liked it.

Since he is only going to school 3 days a week, I spend the other 2 working with him at home. I printed out these worksheets and he really enjoys doing them. He got to play with glue which is his favorite part! He was very proud that I displayed his artwork all week. He loves to learn!
