So, I have subscribed to Birchbox which I am super pumped about and look forward to sharing some awesome reviews with you guys. I was really torn on which women's beauty subscription box to subscribe to, in the end it came down to ipsy, glossybox, and birchbox. Because of price and online reviews I decided giving birchbox a try was the best idea. It does seem to be the women's staple box.

Other things to look forward to:
Montagne Jeunesse has offered to let me review a few of their products for the blog and I can't wait to receive them so that I can share the info with you guys.

I signed up for a Michaels Kids Club craft for the girls which will all be in addition to our Lowes Build and Grow Workshops.

Add all that in with Girl Scouts School Projects and everything else ever in history and we've been busy little bees.

I will be sure to let you guys know how the Michaels Workshop goes, that is Saturday March 7th so keep an eye out for a review, since they do charge a very small fee it's worth knowing what you get into.

Very Cute Valentine

At Oli and Belle's daycare they did their whole traditional exchanging of the valentine's day cards. It was the usual garden variety of card and little treat bags etc. EXCEPT FOR ONE.

Mind you, this was not my Valentine creation so I was at once stunned, envious and awed at the mom that created these cute little treasures...

OK so, in case from the photo you can't tell it's just a clear cello bag with a construction paper flower.
But there's OH so much more.
Firstly, the flower has a saying:
<Insert child's name here> so glad our friendship keeps "growing"
Oh, these clever little quips... my valentines were just so crappy in comparison and PROBABLY TOOK LONGER!!!!
Inside is where it becomes so cool and then your envy flies out the window and you say this is a good idea... maybe I should steal it next year...
There's a little bag of seeds to plant and a little bag of gummy worms and to add the cherry to the proverbial cake they shredded up brown paper for decorations sake. Bravo to that mom. And seriously all the jokes I make about being envious are just that, jokes. I thought this was a great, unique way to celebrate and wanted to share it with you guys.
