Getting Ready for Back to School

Getting Ready for Back to School

Beauty Brite Disclosure

It’s that time of year again, as the summer days draw to an end, for getting ready to go back to school. My oldest is now in first grade, so just like most parents when the dreaded school supply list come in and the struggle of finding the perfect products start. It can be so overwhelming to find where to even start with the list.  Office Depot / OfficeMax has come to the rescue, to save the day!

Back to school with a blast! 

 

Office Depot / OfficeMax has so many new ways to make your back to school shopping easier, by starting with access to all your child’s back to school list. With over 1.2 million supply list from around the country, you have all your needs in one place. Click HERE for more information.

Did you know that Office Depot / OfficeMax also helps make sure kids in need have all the school supplies that they need? You can purchase extra supplies and your local store will deliver them to schools in your community in need of help.  This is also part of their Give Back to School program.  The program gives 5% back in credits to local schools on qualifying purchases for free supplies to their school. How awesome is that?

It’s crazy to think I’m the mom of a first grader, it seems like yesterday that she was just learning how to walk. I used to have so many people tell me when I was first pregnant that once you have children the time just flies by and man were they right.  I feel like I’ve just blinked and its seven years and four children later. I’ve been so truly blessed as a parent to have such wonderful children.  So when it was time to find some perfect supplies for my oldest I was excited for the big selection that Office Depot / OfficeMax offers. I wanted to find something that was as bubbly and sparkly was my daughter’s personality. I wasn’t disappointed, because I found some great options. From adorable Floating Glitter Binders to fun Fish Erasers they had the perfect assortment of everything she needed to make her year great. Great prices that don’t leave this momma breaking the break, so that always makes my life easier!

I’d personally like to thank all of the amazing teachers out there who put their heart and souls into turning these kids into the brilliant minds of tomorrow. Hope everyone has an outstanding school year.

I’ll be the first one to say that I don’t take care of myself the way I should. Not for lack of wanting to but as a mom of four little ones six and under, I usually just don’t have the time. So I’ve been looking for ways to help me keep track of sleep, eating, and my everyday well-being. I usually try and make sure the kids are so well taken care of but I forget all about myself. So when I got the chance to try the GoBe2 by Healbe I was so excited at the prospect of something that goes everywhere with me and doesn’t take time away from my everyday life, it’s everything you need all in one place.

As summer starts winding down, it’s time again to start thinking about back to school. Parents and kids alike are looking forward to going back to school and getting this new year started. This is the first year that I will have a child old enough for school. She will be starting Kindergarten and is so excited! We have already started getting her supplies and just bought her, her very first back pack. She asks almost every week if it’s time to start at her big girl school yet.

When You Start Your Morning With Fitness

When You Start Your Morning With Fitness

I forgot what it is like to feel so energized throughout the day! It has been a few years since I have been able to workout in the morning and really feel great about myself! I went back to work full time after several years of being a stay at home mom. It was quite a shock too. I would come home so tired and exhausted and not want to work out. I would get up early just to get ready for work instead of working out. Now that I am a stay at home mom again, I am working on myself for 2016!

My Goals for 2016

Are you the type to make goals for yourself? Every New Year, I try to make changes. I don’t like to call them resolutions because that would set me up for failure. My biggest change I made was at the end of 2013, I wanted to be more organized with our paperwork. I spent my New Year’s Eve getting organized after several years of just throwing our paperwork in a box.
