With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I thought it would be a great time to talk about three great things you can do with your mom without spending a ton of money!

I am thrilled to be partnering with JCPenney to bring you three simple ideas to do with your mom to let her know how much you love her! But don’t worry, if you don’t live near your mom JCPenney has got a great choice of gifts you can send to your mom too! JCPenney offers a variety of high-quality, stylish pieces at great value.
The past few years of teaching have been incredibly challenging for me. I have had several problems with my thyroid and digestion. In the end of March of 2017, I read the book The Magnolia Story, and it literally changed my life. I don’t say that lightly. Throughout the entire book I read story after story of how Chip and Jo trusted God and some pretty incredible things happened. I remember when I got done reading the book, I got down on my knees. When I was on my knees, I was praying and saying that I didn’t know what else I was even qualified to do. But I was trusting God to provide something for me that I could do for a job. I honestly didn’t know what it would be. But here’s what I did know – I am good with kids, and I am good at shopping!
Whoa! That’s a big, scary picture of me! But today was kind of a stinky day! And while sometimes social media only portrays things as perfect, I am here to tell you that not everything is perfect in my life.
With the new year in full force, I am sure that I am not alone in setting goals for the new year! One of my goals for the month of January was to go gluten, dairy, and sugar free for this month. Day 3 – I already failed! We had one last family Christmas and pizza was the main course! It was gluten free, but still contained cheese…. and I LOVE cheese!! Anyway…. back to goals! I jumped right back on the health train even though I failed one day! You see, that’s life! Just because you fail one day, doesn’t mean you should give up entirely.

If you are new to the page, you may not know that I am a first grade teacher! So while it may appear that I am present on Facebook throughout the entire day, I actually schedule my posts the night before to post throughout the day. And while I will reply to all of your comments and questions, it will not be until after 4:00 most days! I do treasure each response, seriously, so I will do my best to always get back to you!
I’m getting real on the blog today and talking all about my struggle with digestion the past five years. Let me start by saying, I am by no means a medical professional. Talk to your doctor about anything you are struggling with in your digestion.
You may be wondering, why would a first grade teacher who is a mom of two want to start a fashion blog? Well, I believe that you should pursuit the things you love! And one of the many things I love is fashion and finding a good deal on it! So here is what I have learned so far in the short month I have been doing this!
