Great Deal: 38 e-books, valued at $375, for only $29

So, here is another deal for you!  Some of you might know about my addiction to books…I LOVE THEM!  The strange thing is that I don’t usually read them or finish them…so I call my self a book collector:)  I have been doing better and actually finished a book recently…yay for me!  Anyway, I LOVE other blogs and so many of the great bloggers have started writing books, which is great.  I follow a blog called Simple Mom and she has great organization, time saving and just life tips.  I saw today on her site that her book is one of the ones in the collection.  So, I took a look and it looks like a bunch of great e-books with great resources…so I thought I would pass it along for any of you that actually read the books you purchase…or book collectors like me!  Enjoy!!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

The Simons wanted to wish you a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  I thought with it falling on a Saturday that we would do way more things then we ended up doing.  We ended up relaxing and recuperating from some of the fun we had over spring break.  We did dress in green and ate a few green things:)  I have a friend that is a super mom and has something special for every holiday, I always want to be a little more like that:)  This holiday I didn’t do as much, but it was still fun!  Something that we did was make green mac & cheese and green ketchup.  I have to say that it is strange what changing the color of food does to the taste.  We love mac & cheese, but when it was green…it seemed to taste different.  What did you do to celebrate the special day?

Fun Find: Ikea Markers

We had some family come in town for spring break (which I will post on soon) and one of our stops was IKEA!  Who doesn’t love IKEA…well, I actually know a lot of people that don’t…but not us, we LOVE IKEA!  The only thing that I don’t love about IKEA is that we always spend too much money when we go.  We always find something fun to add to our cart!  Well, this trip we found many things including new dish scrubbing brushes (who doesn’t need those), a cheese grader that has a bowl for the cheese to go into, 2 new lamps for our living room, curtains for my sons room, I think there was more, but we also found these cool markers!  My Jude loves to craft and make cards and pictures for people, so this is perfect for him.  They are so neat, one side has a marker tip and the other side is like a stamp (without the stamp pad…way less messy!).  They are super cool and they were like $2!!  So, next time you visit IKEA…pick some up for your kiddos…they will love them!

Fun Find: Pampers Disposable Bibsters

Lincoln has been eating baby food for a little while now, which can be a little messy:)  My sister-in-law gave me a few of these “bibsters” a while back because she didn’t need them anymore.  I hadn’t even heard of them…BUT, they are AWESOME!  You know how when you are feeding your baby and they get food all over the bib and it stains it or makes it REALLY dirty?  Well, these are great because you can just put them over the bib that you have on already or just put it on by itself and it collects all the food…when you are done you just throw it away!!  They are a little pricey, so we only use them when we are out and about…but it is so worth it so that you don’t have to carry around a dirty bib in your diaper bag:)  I haven’t bought any yet, but found them at BuyBuyBaby!

Oh the places I find him:)

I don’t know that I need to even add a caption, but I thought it would be fun to include some of the crazy places that I have found Lincoln.  This time he was taking a nap and I thought had woke up, but looked like he was still sleeping in the monitor…so I went to check on him and this is what I found!  Looks super comfy right?

Oh how I love Valentine’s Day!

I know so many people think that Valentine’s Day is a hallmark holiday, but I LOVE it!  I don’t know if it is because growing up I couldn’t wait to have a hubby and fall in love or I just love all the hearts and stuff:)  Either way, it was fun when it was just me and the hubby, but now that we get to add the kiddos it is even more fun!  I love to celebrate ANYTHING really, you see my thoughts are we should make a BIG deal about the fun things because who doesn’t love to celebrate:))  With everything on Pinterest, I felt a little overwhelmed trying to find a cute Valentine for Jude to take to school.  Usually I would try and make something from scratch, but I ran across some great free printables from Living Locurto and decided to use them because they were so cute!

I had a hard time finding the regular pop rocks, but went to the Dollar Store and ran across these great CARS poppin’ candy.  It was perfect because Jude LOVES Cars and then they could each have 3 different flavors!  I was so excited that I found them:)

I always loved it when my Mom would have things all decorated to celebrate a special day, so I guess that is where it came from.  I went to Michaels and ran across some great items that they had marked down to $1 to decorate for the Valentine’s Day table!  And found the balloons and treat bag contents from Dollar Store too!  The boys really loved it!

Lastly, I found these super cute matching PJ’s for the boys at Walmart!  Not only were they Valentine’s Day, but they were Cars as well…a WIN, WIN!!  I know that I am super bias, but they look crazy adorable in them!

I made some gifts for my sweet hubby, but I didn’t take pics…still getting used to trying to remember to take pics.  I know it almost seems like Valentine’s Day was forever ago, but I hope you had a great time celebrating like us!!
