Wandering Wednesday #5

Wandering Wednesday-2It’s birthday week again in our house so of course preparations are underway getting birthday presents and making cakes!! We have a rule that you can either get a big present or have a party… Both boys chose big presents this year, Colby his mitt and Chase wants a Fitbit…. I guess we will see if he gets one tomorrow! Do your kids have Fitbits? Do you have birthday rules like making them choose between a big present or a party? When do you let your kids start having parties? Add your thoughts to the comments!

It’s Wednesday! Which means it’s Link Up day! Didn’t you love all the posts last week? Which ones were your favorites?

This Week’s Featured Post is:

Easy DIY Halloween Costumes: BumbleBee from Flossie over at SuperMom hacks! Flossie claims she’s not a Supermom, but that is still up in the air :), from what I know so far she’s pretty amazing! She is a mom of two and has figured out a  few tips, tricks, and hacks along the way – things that have helped to make this crazy adventure called parenthood a little easier.

Over the past month I have really gotten to know Flossie and she is a great blogger and becoming one of my blogging friends! Be sure to go check out her totally doable Halloween Costume Post!

So without Further ado Let’s Party!

    SO many amazing posts this week – so hard to choose! I have to say, though (given how much I LOVE parenting hacks!) that the Sugar Switch-Witch idea for Halloween is GENIUS! But a high runner-up vote for the Triple Chocolate PB Pancakes because, well, chocolate AND peanut butter – ’nuff said! 🙂

    I’m voting for “The Waiting Game: 10 Things You Can Do While You Wait for What You Want”. It’s exactly what I needed to hear this week. It’s hard to find the motivation to keep going sometimes when it seems like what you’re working for takes FOREVER. This post had some great suggestions and why sometimes, we have to wait to get what we need.
