Super Easy Valentines

With Valentine's Day quickly approaching, I thought I would show you the easy Valentine's we put together for Carson's classroom party. These are great for boys and girls and were super cheap, too!

Crazy & Kool Valentine's with Free Printable

Crazy & Kool Valentines

Supplies needed:
Crazy Straws (I found these at Wal-Mart for $.97 for 6)
Drink Pouches (at Wal-Mart for $1 for 8)
Free Crazylou Printable
Hole Punch

Print out the FREE printable.
Cut out shape.
Hole punch two holes on the printable for straw to go through.
Take the drink pouch and put it in the "crazy" part of the straw.
Slide the printable tag onto the straw.
Give to your favorite Valentine!

These took me less than an hour to put together (with limited help from Carson)! I love that it isn't candy, too. I get worried with the children that have food allergies--at least with this, even if they have a food dye allergy, they can enjoy the straw!

Have a great day!

Where have I been?

Thank you to the kind readers that have reached out to me over the past month wondering where I've been. 

I'm sorry. Life happened. That's really the only explanation I have.

I'm fully committed to my new project with Nerium International and my focus was on building my business. It's been an exciting few months!

Kids sports are in full force. Hailey is in club volleyball and Carson is in basketball.

I actually had projects at my full-time job.

I started a fitness boot-camp.

My blog is my hobby. I don't make a lot of money doing this, but I have passion for it.

Sometimes hobbies need to take a break so that life doesn't get overwhelming.

I finally realized I can't do it all.

But, at the same time, I realized that if I didn't change what I was doing, nothing in my life would change.

I took a risk. It's taking off. I'm becoming a happier person. I'm a better wife, mother, sister and friend. This quote I found, truly sums it up for me.

Great People Do Things Before They're Ready Quote

For those of you that stuck around, thank you.

I'm going to make an effort to get on a posting schedule again. 

I've missed my blog and thought about it daily. But I didn't want to post something unless it was good content to share. I shouldn't post just to post.

I look forward to making 2014 a historic year in my life. And I hope you continue to go along with me on this ride.

It's 2014 -- the Year of All Things Great

Happy New Year!

Last year I started a little tradition with the kiddo's--it's a New Years Survey. They fill it out and I file it away with their school papers (the ones I keep!). I think it's a great way to recap the year and set a goal for the new year.

2013 ALL ABOUT ME! Free New Years Eve Free Printable!

This year, I've decided not to do the typical New Years Resolutions. Don't get me wrong, I've done fairly well with them in the past, but this year I wanted to focus on just ONE WORD.

Maybe you've heard about it?  Go here to learn more. Chose just one word that sums up who you want to be or how you want to live. One word that you can focus on every day, all year long.

I'm torn on my one word though. It's tougher than I thought it would be. I even went to this blog to get some "one-word" inspiration. I was writing this post, I realized that one word kept coming back up on the surface. So, that has to be it, right?

My life has dramatically changed since September. I have a better outlook on life, I feel energized and motivated because of the leadership that has been supporting me on this new journey. So my word for 2014 is POSITIVE. In the past, I've been known to dwell on negative things. But seriously, Nerium has given me a gift to start seeing the best out of every situation. It truly is a gift.

I look forward to seeing how this ONE WORD will help define an amazing 2014. I'll keep you posted along the way.

#ONEWORD365 My word is Positive. I will lead my daily life in a positive way.

So...are you doing a New Year's Resolution or will you be joining me on the ONE WORD Challenge?
