The February @LootCrate was #BUILD - perfect for an 8 year old birthday gift!

Image
The month of February brought much fun here.  We had a 21st birthday, an 8th birthday, Valentines and even a trip to New Orleans for Mardi Gras.  The 8 year old is into building things (still, thank goodness) so when I opened up the February Loot Crate, I knew it was going to be a great gift!  Oh, lets not forget that you can turn this months box into a Robot!!!  Score, yet again!

In keeping with wanting to share books for Reading Awareness Month, I thought it would be great to share another of the Isabella books that I have fallen in love with.  If you have a little girl in your life, this is an amazing book that I think all little girls should have!

The "Isabella" series of books is one I fell in love with when I read Isabella - Girl In Charge.  I was not really sure what to expect, but I fell in love at first read!  I am thrilled to get to share with you today, Isabella - Girl On The Go.  Savannah loves these books and will grab them and bring them for me to read to her.  (Broxton even sits down and listens when I read these.  They are really great!)

6 Unexpected Infused Water Ideas for Gorgeous Skin

Image
I know most people enjoy drinking water, but I do know for some it is a struggle.  I thought I would share a few water ideas for you to enjoy.  Do you drink plain water or do you like to infuse it as well?
This is a guest post.



While most dermatologists and doctors preach the benefits of drinking more water, water gets boring. Perhaps you’ve done just about everything to make your plain glass of water more enjoyable. If you’re running out of ideas and are tempted to reach for a caffeinated beverage you’re not alone. We talked to the experts who gave us six fresh infused water recipes that’ll pack a punch of flavor and add health and beauty benefits to your H2O! If you’re new to infused water it’s easy. Chop up the ingredients, let them sit over night in your water pitcher and sip your way to healthy hydration inside and out.

Savannah is one and a half, so we are all about learning books. Counting, alphabet, shapes and colors. When the latest book arrived on our doorstep, we were thrilled.  Just so you know, Animal Colors and moreis far from your average color book.  Most books have "red, orange, blue" basic colors.  Well, this covers the basic colors, but if you lo…
