Christmas Ideas

I just love this idea! I think it would be a great keepsake of my little ones. I will need to practice my sad embroidery skills. Perhaps a class at Home Ec. is in order? I also saw one mama (on Soule-Mama) use her childrens' drawings to make pillows. Who knows which on I will do but I certainly have a plethora of artwork to choose from!

This adorableness is from craft pudding on Etsy. They also have a great book stamp that you can personalize. How much fun is this?

One of my other favorite ideas is Table Talk for families. I have been wanting to get these for a while now - for my kids at home and for students at school. I am wondering how easy this will be to make and give to friends and family? I think I could make it fun and cute!

Onward Hawks!

This year would be remiss if I did not mention the almighty Hawkeye football team. Lars was able to go to a game earlier this year with his daddy! This year has not been pretty but it has been full of great exciting football games that have kept the fans on the edges of their seats. I was lucky enough to go into Kinnick for the Northwestern game, much to my dismay, they lost. This ended the undefeated season- so they are currently 9-1, which is pretty darn good for us! There are still chants of Rose Bowl ging around but we face Ohio this weekend. I wish the boys luck and I am proud most of all of the players- they are a respectable bunch of students and of Ferents, the coach, who really is the strength behind the group! Go Hawks!

Foolproof Outfit

Great idea here to think of an outfit that can take me through my entire day with no item changes. It has to be stylish but yet fit and allow for the mobility to chase a 3 year old Lars. I have a limitation of not being able to wear jeans since jeans are a no no at my school. (So sad but true!) So here is my idea of a perfect outfit....Since I cannot afford to really shop virtual shopping it is!

I think all the items are classic and very versatile. I really do want a ruffled shirt- but I am looking for one in chambray. I liked this one though. I also shopped at one store- GAP. I will need to do another foolproof outfit from another favorite store.

Kodak Praise

So it has been a while since I last uploaded pictures on Kodak Gallery. In fact, I was growing very annoyed at all the glitches I was having. I recently received an invite to try out the "new" improved website. I really wondered is it was possible. I went and checked it out! It was really amazing all they are having to offer.
  • prints for 9 cents- all the time!
  • local pick up
  • easier to load- amazingly easy & faster too!
  • free card samples
  • great card selections
  • easy to make photo books (better than before!)
They are finally paying attention to the competition and what they offer! So if you have been ever a customer, you should check them out now! So I have downloaded tons of pictures and created three photo books and ordered prints- all for $2.00! The deals are way too good to pass up right now. This is one site that is drumming for your business so why not take advantage!

The big deal they are running right now is their "1 Million Thanks Giveaway". Everyone seems to win a free $15 git code and I am sure there are other gifts too. All you have to do is sign up! The new coupons expire November 17th.
