Dear Pumpkin Patch Farms,
I've got an idea.... You could offer a pumpkin cleaning service. You know, clean out the guts and prep the pumpkins for carving? I would so love this. And, I know I am not the only one out there who would pay you to do this! Please keep this in mind for next year.
A Mom who hates to de-gut (is that a word?) pumpkins.

As some of you may know....
I have my own indie nail polish brand. Ok, two.
For those of you who don't, here is a little about us:
My main brand is Seventy-Seven Nail Lacquer. We are small brand based in Washington State. All our polishes are made to order or sometimes in small batches. Seventy-Seven is our new brand. I decided to create another because.. Well, keep on reading
Polish Junkie Nail Lacquer is our original brand. Also made to order or in small batches. Polish Junkies exists today to help me raise funds for homeschool expenses. Field trips, supplies, etc. What makes this brand fun is, I am working in collaboration with kids to make something special for you!
You can find Seventy-Seven and Polish Junkie at my Storenvy shop located HERE.
If you shop on Storenvy, please "watch" us!
We are also on Facebook. Click HERE.
And, I know you're on Facebook. Please give our page a like!
Yep. You heard me. I've got a picky eater.
I know I'm not the only one going through this, past or present. What do I to get my boy to eat regular meals? He is almost 7 years old. He gets very distracted at meal time. He goofs off a little too much, says he feels full or his body hurts (full tummy), etc. I know what he likes, to a certain degree. I think he purposely drops food on the floor so he won't eat. In fact, I know he does.
Don't get me wrong... He is not starving by any means. But, he eats in between meals because he won't finish meals. However, I'm afraid he won't develop healthy eating habits.
What can I do?

Christmas is coming...
Bah. Humbug! I only say that because I hate the shopping that comes with it. Have you started, yet?
I have. I'm homeschooling this year and shopping will be done mostly online. (Now, if I just had somewhere to put all this stuff!)
What's on your list to buy? What have you bought so far?
So far, I've bought...
2 - Samsung Galaxy Tablet 3 Kids Wi-Fi Tablets from Costco.
These will come in handy and keep the boys from destroying our phones! And on the plus side, there is a timer you can set for using. Not to mention the kids setting and normal setting for when they are older!
1- HP ENVY Recline 23xt Touchscreen All-In-One Desktop - Intel Core i7 from Costco.
This is a big purchase. But, we think this is justified. Perfect for schoolwork, gaming, etc. Everyone will be able to use this. Plus, it's not a laptop. It will stay in one place. Darn it. That means a desk and chair has been added to the list. By the way, if you're looking for a all-in-one desktop, this one is on sale at Costco for a few more days.
Clothing items from Crazy 8.
I haven't bought from them before. But, they had an awesome sale going on at the time. And they had slim sizes. My oldest is naturally thin and tall. They also had a ton of tees for my youngest. He is on the muscular side and he is hard to shop for. Also, they have another sale going on right now! You should go check it out!
Ugh, yes... They are so into Minecraft! (That's another reason the computer comes in handy) And the Lego Movie. Anyhoo, Kohls has tons of related clothing items. And, they always have some sort of promo going. I never shop without some sort of discount!
Now there are still things that they have on their Christmas list.... Jeez. Why does Christmas have to be so expensive?
They have a few things that they wrote in their practice letters to Santa. Yes, they've started that as well. These are just things we incorporate in homeschool to keep it interesting.
So, tell me... Have you started preparing for the Holiday. Or you waiting until after Thanksgiving?

Yes, yes. I've said it before. But, this time I'm serious. Maybe my mom-brain disorder is fixing itself!
Things have changed. I'm still a SAHM. But, now I'm homeschooling! A little pressure? Of course! Two boys depending on me to teach them what they need. I just hope I don't let them down. So, yeah... Just a little pressure.
Still doing reviews here and there. I can't wait to start writing again. Hopefully, all of you are still here.
Stay tuned. There is more to come!
