{wow me} wednesday #66

Welcome to  {wow me} wednesday!



So glad YOU are here!

How is YOUR week going? 

Last week was our local county fair.
Some of my favorite fair pictures always come from the petting zoo!
My kids had a blast!  We so look forward to the fair each year.

flossing & my bucket list {Yes, they are related!} #CompleteCare

Raise your hand if you LOVE to floss??  Ummmm…probably no one is raising their hand right now. ha!  Do you dread going to the dentist & hearing the “you really need to floss” speech?  Ugh!  I’ve been there, too.  Buuut did you know that flossing regularly actually improves life expectancy since it decreases your likelihood of gum and heart disease?  In just a minute I’m going to share my bucket list that I can accomplish all because flossing is helping me live a healthier, longer life.  Waterpik makes two great products for families like mine that make flossing fun & so much easier.  We all know that brushing alone is not enough.

Welcome to  {wow me} wednesday!



So glad YOU are here!

Lots going on around here for us!  School started this week.
Annnd our little man turned the big 3!  Wowzers!  Time flies!
{Yes, we practiced holding up 3 fingers.  It’s harder than it looks!}

cole is three

When my kiddos turn 3 it means potty training time!  Wahoo!
I’m so excited.  He’s my last one in diapers!
So Monday is our big day!  We usually pick a day…
pick out some super cute undies, talk it up
& then just go cold turkey…no looking back.
Usually it takes about a week.  So wish us luck!
Smile

Well enough potty talk….ha!


Are you ready to PaRty?

reflecting on our {intentional} summer

Today is the first day of school for my kiddos.
Such a bittersweet day for this momma!
I have one starting kindergarten & one starting high school!
I’m not sure which one makes me more teary eyed!
Oh how I love having my kiddos home & being their mom!
It’s the best. job. ever.

I absolutely LOVE summer time, too.
I don’t like to see it come to an end.
Each summer we have a summer schedule posted on the fridge.
A summer calendar all filled up with what we are going to do that summer.
We don't want to miss a thing!  This summer was no different!
We had such a great time!  So much fun!

teacher gift {tutorial}

Today I’ve got a cute, quick & so easy teacher gift.
I made these for some primary teachers at church.
{Primary is the children’s organization at our church.}
We had two of our teachers going off to college,
so these made the perfect going away gift.
You could always change it up,
& say “I hope we have a ball this year!”
Then use these as back to school teacher gifts!

I can’t believe this is the 64th {wow me} wednesday party!
Thank you so much for stopping by each week to share your talents!

This past weekend we went to Nashville, Tennessee
for my husband’s niece’s wedding.
We stayed in the Hermitage Hotel {fancy!}. 
It was so nice to be pampered for the weekend.
My kiddos wanted to move in & stay forever…
they said they could get used to being pampered! ha!

So glad YOU are here!

So are you enjoying the Olympics?
When I was a little girl I just knew I was
going to grow up to be an Olympic gymnast.
Obviously that didn’t work out so
I became a craft blogger instead! ha!
