My daughter is obsessed with headbands~

Posted on

One of the best things that was ever invented, that is of course if you have long hair, is headbands. We love our headbands in our house, and my daughter is a little obsessed with headbands. My daughter wanted bangs not that long ago and decided she wanted me to cut her some. Well….to bad hair doesn’t come back right away, she did not like her bangs by the next day. So we invested a little money into headbands and fixed her bad decision to have bangs!  Headbands are a fun gift to give to any girl that has medium to long hair. They are so fun and bright now, big and puffy. Here is a picture of my daughter being silly in the car with her headband.



My niece Chloe, is a huge fan of headbands, the bigger the better! I had gone shopping at Herberger’s and found her a couple headbands that had been fifty dollars, they were very similar to the ones pictured below. I picked them up for four dollars a piece, I got one black and one hot pink. I tried looking for her picture, however I could not find it any where. She was so happy to have headbands for her birthday! 608974

Have you ever run out of ideas on what to get the men in your life? I mean how can you really go wrong with sports trading cards? Men and boys of all ages will enjoy getting sports trading cards. With Easter right around the corner you can fill your child’s Easter basket with a variety of sports trading cards from DSC Sports Cards.

We have a reward system in our home, meaning in order to earn your reward you have to do something above and beyond your normal chores. My seven year old for instance is in Taekwondo and will receive a reward for achieving his next belt, and completing ten random acts of kindness. With my son in Taekwondo and my daughter in dance we will reward them for staying committed and going and giving it 100% during their classes. Sports trading cards are a huge deal in my house with the boys constantly trading cards and making up fun games to play with the cards.


My husband has been a sports card collector since he was a young child and has shared that passion with our boys. They each have there own sports card binders that hold all of there cards. Don’t forget to add sports trading cards to your shopping list for the men in your life.

Puzzles Make Great Gifts

Posted on

In my house, we are huge fans of puzzles. Since November we have put together five puzzles that were 500 pieces or bigger. Puzzles are great to give to anyone from age two to one hundred and two. We are lucky in this house everyone loves to get a puzzle as a gift. I don’t think that you can ever go wrong giving a puzzle.  Puzzles are great past time memory I have growing up. My mom always had a puzzle on the card table and I was always helping with it.


We had to frequent hospitals a lot with my younger brother. I always remember the hospital being so big that they would have a couple tables set up with puzzles on them.  Puzzles come in all forms now, form wooden ones for children to several thousand piece puzzles for the adventurous puzzles enthusiast. We have a puzzle that we had finished that we loved so much that we used puzzle glue and than framed it! I love this puzzle not because of the beer bottles but because of its unique design, there are a lot of things going on making it a challenge!!

Fun Collectible Football Cards

Posted on

My seven year old has been showing us his increasing love for sports. During football season he can be found with his father on the couch watching every game! He is quickly remembering all the names and numbers of the players from his favorite teams. For Christmas he was giving a jersey and tickets to a game to watch our states team. So for Christmas we decided to start him his own collection of football cards, {since dads are off limits to him, with too many good collectibles}. He was happy as a clam, he loves to go through the cards almost daily. It always seems like he is learning new information every time he picks a card up.


The 2012 Panini Elite Football Cards Hobby Box, is a great way to get your child or young adult started on his or her own collection. You will receive 24 packs per box 5 cards per pack. That is a great start for anyone’s starter collection. My son was thrilled, as would anybody opening this as there gift.
