Teachers, this will take your bulletin board to the next level

I love going into classrooms of other teachers. This morning while checking in on one of my favorites I noticed how perfect her bulletin board looked and she told me about this awesome product! I know the teacher’s paycheck is precious, but add this to your wishlist for your classroom bulletin board and you won’t regret this purchase! My friend told me that this roll is enough to fit 2 bulletin boards. You can write straight on this “paper” with a dry erase maker and it is just so durable! Next time I need to design a bulletin board, I will be buying me a roll of this Better Than Paper Bulletin Board!

Shoe rack update

I’d say in the last couple of years that Joseph’s shoe collection outgrew his little corner of our closet that his few pairs of shoes have lived for the first 6 years of our marriage. Then this last 3 years, his Converse collection and boot collection and dress shoe collection has really multiplied! So for Father’s Day a couple of years ago we got him a shoe rack and now his collection has again outgrown that rack. I love organization and everytime I walked in the closet it would annoy me that there were shoes everywhere, so back to Amazon to find a bigger rack. I bought this one and JJ helped me assemble it. She helped me move all the shoes to the new rack and then she took the old rack for herself, lol! We only got 17 pairs of his shoes on the new rack and that was squeezing them in!

Headphones for Kids…GENIUS!

Joseph had the genius idea of making the kids wear headphones while watching DVD player 👏 Sometimes I do feel like I am watching the movie when I can hear it though and makes drives go by quicker. But I must admit the peace and quiet is soooooo nice!

We love this pair of headphones! JJ has a pair for school and then the kids both have a pair for the car…I’ll be getting Luke his school set when the time comes. There was a $8 code for this set when we bought, so brought down the price!

Kitchen Aid Mixer has many uses

I have not been using my Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer like I thought I would…but I just used it TWICE in ONE night!

I needed to shred my chicken for quesadillas and then I needed to wash our masks, but didn’t have a load of clothes to toss the masks in with…so in steps the mixer!

Definitely an item to add to the wishlist!

My 20 year old DVD player is outdated

I had an itch to watch some of the Fast and Furious movies and I go to play one of the discs and remember that I used to watch on Joseph’s Playstation (it was also a BluRay Player) that we sold, so I needed something to play these movies! I got this one and it plays great! Easy to set up and easy to use! It is amazing the quality of Blu Ray! We put in a regular DVD just to make sure everything was playing correctly and the quality is so noticable!

Getting ready for a Blue’s Clues fanatic birthday

It is nice to admit when you realize your kids have been spoiled with STUFF and you want to try to help in that area. So WildMan’s Mama said he really loves bath time so she suggested this for him–practical good job, but we needed more for him, so she came across this drum set. I know he is going to love it! You can’t give all practical things for a 4 year olds birthday, lol….I am hoping to get the same face as the tractor did in the mountains!

Toy Story Lovers VDay Gift MUST HAVE

Luke was obsessed with WildMan’s Buzz which had wings that popped out, but we thought that the big toys were a little too bulky so in starting his little collection, we went for the smaller ones. Excited to keep adding to his collection after he gets the Buzz and Rex and Valentine’s Day!

Men’s shoe rack

Stacy Adams Chelsea Boot

These boots look uncomfortable but the sole is very soft and supportive. They are easy to slide on and off.

I love the way this color shoe pops with dark jeans. You can even pair them with a less formal suit.
