{ Teacher Gifts }

I know it's such a cliche but.... this school year has flown by!!

Which means it's time to start thinking of what to get your child's teachers for all they have done for them throughout the year.

I am amazed daily at how much Avery has learned. We have been blessed to have two amazing teachers for her first year of school.

I know for some of you school is already out but, for those of you who are still in (like us) I want to share some ideas with you.

We gave our teachers these flowers on appreciation day. They were wraped in burlap with ribbon tied around and added a cute printable that said "thank you for helping Avery bloom".
You can find HERE

Last year we did the CRAYON MONOGRAM

For Dawson's first grade teacher I made this book out of scrapbook paper. He was able to write things about having her as a teacher and I left areas for him to draw pictures. You can read about it HERE

And here are some other ideas I came across that would be cute:
Well there you go...I hope this helps.
Feel free to link up any other ideas in the comments.

A & E P

Yaaaay! I finally hung something above our bed! After 4 years of living here I thought it was about time.

I had this envisioned in my head for quite some time. I love how it turned out.

Still a work in progress but, I'm just happy to have something on the walls ; )

Enjoy your week!

{Soaking it in....}

Im soaking up e-v-e-r-y moment I can get of this boy playing with his toys.

I love that right now he still likes to play with legos...using his imagination.

I want to hold on to these moments for as long as I can.....

trying not to remember how soon it will be before these days are gone....

Happy Thursday everyone!

and best of all.....

the wedding of my little sister!

It was a week to always remember!

{Good morning.....}

It's a rainy, gloomy day here  (has been for a few days now)  and I am finding it really hard to get myself going ......ever have one of those days??

 Unfortunately, I know them all too well. ; )

So in order to find some motivation.... I made my favorite breakfast! Sounds strange...I know...but this dish makes me happy....even on day like this.

all you need is a couple slices of  bread (I used baguette) , cottage cheese, pine nuts , fresh basil, and tomato.

mix the last four ingredients together, add S&P, and top with the toasted bread slices.
Then eat  every - single - bite!
I hope everyone had a Happy Easter weekend!

 Now Mothers Day is just right around the corner! ; )
