Our children’s teachers are not just educators. They are a part of our kids’ daily lives and a part of their hearts. In fact, for many people, their kids see more of their teacher on any given day than they do their parents! For all their hard work, their patience, their devotion and personal and monetary contributions, teachers deserve recognition and appreciation from all of us. However, The holidays can be a difficult time of year for many parents. For us, with 4 kids in school and an already tight budget, it’s hard to find an appropriately appreciative gift that also fits our monetary constraints. Therefore, we often make gifts for our teachers. Here is a list of the best homemade gifts for teachers and school staff!
I love this idea from HymnsAndVerses.com. If you can find out the favorite book of your childs’ teacher you can order it used for only a few dollars. Or you can simply go the thrift store and pick up a book for a dollar or two! Bam! You spent less than $5 for a gift that shows a love for reading and for the teacher who taught you how!
Fall is one of my favorite times of year, and not just because it hails the start of another round of the pumpkin spice craze! As the days get shorter and the air breathes a bit cooler, fall also means it’s time for our family to spend a day at the fall festival! This year, I was lucky enough to be invited to Harvest Farms Fall Festival in Wellington, Colorado (stay tuned for a special coupon!). Not only was our experience amazing, but we were able to learn about the amazing mission of this farm; helping to break the cycle of addiction and homelessness.
THE FARM and it’s mission
I really enjoy anything with ice cream in it. In my opinion, Ice Cream should be it’s own food group!
As a mom and bartender, I also enjoy booze every now and then. Ok, sometimes I NEED the booze after a particularly rough day of 5 tiny heathens fighting constantly!
Thus, in my little world, a Boozy Ice Cream shake is the Bee’s Knees! (I have also included a non-alcholic option at the bottom!) Continue reading “Boozy Irish Shake For St. Paddy’s Day”

I love Amazon, it is the best place to find of the most AMAZING and, often, overlooked products out there. It is also a place to find some of the weirdest stuff, things you might not think you want or that would be perfect for that funny office gift exchange.
Ugly sweaters are definitely one of the latter. No matter how ugly they are though, I still have a special place in my heart for them…In fact I may have just ordered #10 on this list!
