Top Five 2017 Free Printable Calendars

Top Five Free Printable Calendars

Happy Friday, y’all! I’m finally back after my holiday hiatus and ready to bring on the New Year. Speaking of the New Year, one of my New Year’s resolutions is to get myself organized and on somewhat of a daily/weekly schedule (and stick to it). Since becoming a stay-at-home mom after moving to Tennessee, I’ve struggled to figure out and stay on some sort of schedule and I’m someone that loves a schedule so I’ve been kind of a hot mess. My brain needs that kind of structure. Today, I’ve listed and linked my top five favorite free printable calendars that will help you get organized and on a schedule!

I am happy to announce that the winner has been chosen – congratulations to Megan! Today, I’m sharing our shopping experience and some of the goodies we grabbed from our West Town Mall Holiday Haul.

So, today I’m sharing a few of my favorite blanket scarf picks and some of the resources I have found that have given me some great inspiration on how to wear my scarves.

I have a sweet spot for doughnuts – so when my daughter told me she wanted to be a Shopkins Delish Doughnut for Halloween, I was thrilled. Plus — we LOVE Shopkins! After not finding anything I liked in stores or online, I decided to make it myself.

Five on Friday

Happy Friday! I hope everyone had a great Labor Day Weekend. For all my lovelies that had to work, I know your pain and hope you get your time off soon! It’s been a few weeks since I jumped on the Five on Friday train. I’m so glad to be back! Today I wanted to share a few goodies that I’ve discovered and have been loving and thought you may love too!


Navy had her first plane ride when we visited Florida last month and she did so well! I had searched for toddler traveling tips beforehand and on several lists I kept seeing LilGadgets Untangled Pro Premium Children’s Wireless Bluetooth Headphones . Y’all – if you are traveling with a child, I highly recommend these. They worked like a charm, easily fit into my bag, and there were no cords to get tangled. I linked the headphones and her i-Pad about a week in advance and let her wear them a few times so that she was comfortable with them. She watched Zootopia the whole plane ride home and was one happy camper!
