Do You Doodle? A Great Book for Kids

It’s so important for kids to explore with their imaginations and really put their brains to work. This helps a developing brain and teaches kids at a young age that it is a good thing to be creative! I have a nephew that is turning seven years old in a couple of weeks and I know just what to get for him.

This is a book just for doodling! It’s called, “Do you Doodle?” and there are 200 doodle pages with the start of a doodle on each page. The kids can add to the start and create amazing pictures. They use their imagination to see the start into a finished product. This would be great to take on car trips and can be used for a wide variety of ages.

This gift would be great paired with a pack of crayons or colored pencils.

A Fantastic Jewelers in Orange County

An engagement ring is such an important piece of jewelry! It is something that is worn and treasured for years. This represents the promise to marry and represents a committment to join together in marriage. My engagement was one of the best times of my life! I had a blast picking out my dream wedding dress, planning the meal, picking out flowers, choosing my hairstyle, asking the attendants in the wedding to join us on our special day, having our bachelor and bachelorette parties, the bridal shower, and more. I love planning so this was just a dream for me. I loved every moment of it (minus maybe writing the checks out for everything!)

My engagement ring comes from Simone and Son. These are my favorite jewelers in Orange County. They do fantastic work! You never have to second guess the quality, because it is always top of the line. I love the vast knowledge base that the employees have as well as the amazing product line. If you are thinking about getting engaged, check out their amazing selection!

The Way To His Heart…BACON!

This post is for any of you that are in a relationship with a guy and wanting to do something a little special and cute. Do any of you know a guy that DOESN’T like bacon? Seriously, I think that my guy could get bacon for every single meal of the day and everything in between. I know it’s probably not the healthiest, but after getting so many requests to have “breakfast” for every meal (bacon, eggs, and waffles with a glass of orange juice and a glass of milk to be exact), I started sneaking turkey bacon into our refrigerator.  He likes it a lot and says it still tastes great! It’s a lot healthier than the traditional bacon.

This idea involves just a cookie sheet and some bacon. Put the bacon into “heart” shapes and bake it in the oven on the cookie sheet at 425 degrees until done. My guy likes it a little bit crispier but every person likes it a little bit different! Surprise him some morning on your anniversary or Valentine’s Day and he will love the thoughtful gesture! After all–the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach!

An Organization Solution for Scarves

I am one of those people with a huge shopping problem. I still have money to pay my bills and other expenses, so I don’t know if it’s classified as a problem, but my husband sure thinks I do! I could spend hours at the mall on my day off of working trying all of the fun fashions of the current season. I also love getting accessories. I think every outfit can be completed with some fun and fashionable accessories.

Now that the temperatures are dropping and Fall is in full swing, I have really added to my scarf collection. I love to look stylish while staying warm and enjoy wearing a fun scarf with almost every outfit. I found a great solution so store and organize all of these scarves (since they were in a large basket getting tangled and looking super messy). This scarf holder can hang right in the closet and keeps scarves easy to see and tangle-free!
