First Weekend of April 2020

WHEW! March is over yall! We did it!! Now we are going to get through April, and when its over we are going to have the biggest parties, the tightest hugs, and we’ll be united in a way we have never been before. Until then, I’ve been trying to keep myself busy. Well, homeschooling three children plus two toddlers is keeping me busy than I know what to do with. We are on our last day of Spring Break so while we have had a break from that, I try to keep my hands as busy as possible. I’m trying not to watch the news constantly and just trying to keep everything positive for not just me, but more importantly my children.

We’ve done lots of stuff to try to keep us busy over this time, I’m going to make a post about it next week to share some of the things we’ve done, and I would love it if you all could share with us. We need new ideas!

One thing that I have been really good at doing is making myself get all the way ready every morning. Now that there isn’t school, I have time to do it before everyone gets up or during their morning cartoons. It makes me feel 1000 times better! I’m a firm believer in the better you look the better you feel.

3rd Week of March

Hi friends! How has everyone been holding us since the coronavirus restrictions? Today is our 6th day of “self quarantine.” We have had some bad weather but were able to play outside a couple times and I’m so thankful for that! Life got really hectic once school was canceled because we switched to eLearning, online school. Now I’m homeschooling 3 and trying to keep the twins quiet. I’ve been a little more quiet than usual but still posting on my Instagram stories. A lot of us have to find a new normal until this is all over. We all need to give ourselves and others grace.

Second Week of March – We have a birthday in the house!

When you have five kids, there’s just about always a birthday in the house. LOL I always try to do something special for them to wake up to, a little birthday morning surprise. This year I decided to make a balloon arch and set it up in the dining room.

Making your own balloon arch is seriously so simple. I ordered everything on Amazon! This is what I used:

Electric Balloon Pump – not required but a serious life saver! I used almost 100 balloons and blew them all up in minutes!

Balloon Decorating Strip

Balloons– again, I used almost the entire pack

If you follow me on Instagram, I shared the process of making the arch. Its so simple! Blow up your balloon, tie them off, and stick the knot of the tie into the holes on the Decorating Strip. The whole process took just over an hour. Not too bad to see the look on my girl’s face when she saw it!

I also got these “Happy Birthday” balloons from Amazon. I’m not great at paying attention to detail so I just thought it looked cute and ordered it with the intention of it hanging under the balloon arch. Well this bad boy wasn’t fitting under anything! So big but so so cute! We hung in up on the opposite wall of the balloon arch.

Happy Birthday Emma Pearl!

Deal Alert!

Aerie– 40% off bathing suits

Abercrombie & Fitch- up to 40% off
