    Musings: Boycott Easter Candy

    Okay, I’m not Bummer Bunny or anything… …but I feel like every year all the kids in our families and L receive tons of candy for Easter. To change it up this year, I decided to gift something else. I’m sure I’m not the first person to do this, so I’m NOT claiming rights to my crafty idea, but I thought I’d share what I am giving to the Lovebugs this year. I decided that books were a great gift for the kidlets. Yes, they’d love candy way more than that.

    Baller-On-A-Budget – Mother's Day Edition

    I’m about to hit you hard with an overly Pinteresty post… …I just thought I’d share a quick, baller-on-a-budget Mother’s Day Gift I made/making for the lovely Momma’s that are in my life. I’m probably ruining my surprise for some, since the big day is tomorrow, but oh well! I’m not reinventing the wheel here, just something I thew together – which I’m sure plenty of other humans have done so as well. They aren’t anything fancy, but they are just a quick and simple idea for anyone who may be looking for one. I don’t have a cool, fancy Pinterest name for it… But I have lots of women…
