I’ve been doing a lot of self-reflection lately. A little dreaming, a little soul-searching, a little evaluating of my life in general. I want to figure out if I’m living my best life or not. And WHY I’m not, if that’s the case. Where are the limitations coming from? What is making me believe that my dreams are out of reach? How can I make daily changes that will help me reach my long term goals? That kind of stuff. I know, it’s heavy stuff. But at the end of it all, I want to be able to look back on my life and know that I did everything in my power to lead an amazing life. Here are some thought-provoking journal prompts for moms to get us all started.

Are You Living Your Best Life?

Are you thriving in life or do you feel stuck in a rut?

For too many years I had this baseline feeling of disappointment that stayed with me. Disappointment that THIS was my life. That this life was everything I had always wanted, but it turns out it was actually kind of a let down. And then of course the crushing guilt about feeling disappointed. Lol. Motherhood is one crazy emotional roller coaster!

Having the option to work from home is something that many moms strive for.

28 Birthday party favour ideas for kids. Lots of free printables for birthday goodie bags. Awesome non-candy favor ideas for kid's birthday parties. Reach 'super-mom' status with these super-creative treat bag ideas for a kid's party.

One year we made the mistake of not having treat bags at my son’s birthday party. Rivers were cried. And we learned our lesson in a hurry. But the thing with treat bags is that they have to hit 3 points; not contain too much sugar, not cost too much money, and be fun for the recipient. It’s a tall order. So for future reference I’ve rounded up 28 of the best birthday party favour ideas that I could find.  Most of these ideas include free printables, but a few of them will require a little more diy’ing on your part.

I tried to find lots of non-candy options, mainly because it drives me nuts when my boys come home from a party with loot bags full of sugar. I’m not anti-sugar by any means, but things like suckers, fizzy sugar powder, ring pops, etc make my kids go bat shit crazy. Usually little chocolates or cookies don’t affect them too much.

Some of these birthday party favour ideas are actually just a design idea for the bag or a printable topper, you’ll have to come up with the treat ideas.  I usually just cruise through the Dollar store to find some appropriate treat bag fillers. But now I can also reference this post well in advance of future parties to get some more creative ideas!
