I’m again linking up with Jennifer at Mom’s Got Mail for her Friday Fave Five blog hop. Here are my five favorite things this week:
Favorite for Gift:
Hallmark We Love Grandma Frame: I first learned of this last year when my sister in law bought one for my Mom. There are three sets of grandchildren in my family, so we each have a prop and we’ve been updating the pictures annually. We love it because the first prop is “I” or “We” and the second prop is “Grandma” or “Nana”. My Mom is “Nana” and there’s not too many “Nana” items out there. I just bought another one of these to use with my girls for their Grandma’s 60th birthday. At around $25 including the frame, it makes for a great affordable gift.
Erin Condren Coil Clips: I can’t decide if these are awesome or not, but ever since I saw them in the 2014-2015 Life Planner video I’ve been obsessed. They clip into the spiral binding of your planner so you can attach invitations and other important papers right into the appropriate month or week in your planner. Are they better than a paperclip? I’m not sure. If you’ve bought them, I’d love to hear what you think.
Favorite for Kids:
LeapPad 3: Ella has been wanting a LeapPad FOREVER! but now that her birthday is coming up, I think she will finally be getting one from her grandparents (she has requested purple not green). Everything I’ve read about the new LeapPad 3 sounds great, they are improving the quality and responsiveness with each new release. Ella could probably use an iPad mini, but they are so expensive and with a 2 year old sister who will want to play with her, a LeapPad is a better choice.
Favorite Etsy Find:
Felt Dolls: There are lots of these little felt dolls on etsy. They have removable clothes and there are endless outfit options. I’m thinking of getting these for the girls for Christmas. They wouldn’t grow out of them too soon, they won’t take up lots of space and they are just adorable. Of course getting a Sofia is a must, but I really love the Queen of England 🙂
I’ve been sick with a horrible sore throat this week so ice cream has been my food of choice. Not great for my diet but since I’m only eating once a day, I’m eating whatever I can. Peaceful Meadows is where my parents always brought us as kids and is only a few minutes away form my house. So, I’ve been sending my husband to get me a frappe each night. 🙂
Thanks for checking out my favorites this week!
