Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! I love to give my children little gifts at Valentine’s Day, and here are some adorable free printable cards that Sean designed for you all!
Free Valentine's Day printable for your children! Let them know you love them with these adorable printable cards!

Last year I made a nice dinner for us as a family, and each child had a special place setting with candy and a coupon book I had made for them. The children are sick this week, so I haven’t decided exactly what we are doing. I do have a little tootsie roll bank to give them, and of course, these adorable cards!

If your children go to public or private school, you could put one of these in their lunch bag each day leading up to Valentine’s Day!

To get these free cards, go over to Character Badges and follow the instructions there on how to get them! It’s super easy.

Why We Needed Character Badges As Much As our Children Did!

Character Badges has been such a blessing to our family!

I never thought I would type this. 

My husband started a blog. 

*Gasp*

It’s honestly about time, he is a great writer, and I’ve been on him for awhile now to blog! Here is his first post that he wrote for the Character Badges blog….

Let me start off by saying that I’m painfully aware of how busy life can be. Everybody has a hundred things to do and in the rare instance that some free time pops up (what’s that?) there’s always something (or someone) lurking to fill it.

I sometimes chuckle to myself when I look back to when Caroline and I were first married. We thought we were busy then! I’m sure if you would have come to me 13 years ago with this need or that I would have made some excuse about being too busy (well, that’s not really true because I’ve always been something of a “yes” man). The point is, we definitely felt busy back then, but nothing could have prepared us for how busy we are now.

Of course, having children raised the bar on busyness exponentially. Suddenly our time was not our own. Before children I used to come home from work, kick my shoes off and snuggle up with Caroline on the couch and read a good book or listen to some Chopin. After children I didn’t even have time to kick off my shoes!

Seriously though, children change things in ways that are difficult to explain. They don’t just affect your time. It’s your care and your concern and your emotions and a host of other things. Just as your children need food to live, they need all of these other things to thrive. Some parents embrace these demands while others try to ignore them. Ignoring them always leads to frustration and even bitterness….

Modest Monday and a Link Up!

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

My children became sick this week, we think it is hand, foot and mouth disease they picked up from some friends. It’s hard to not pass things along when you go to a church with large families, and the children are best of friends. :)

I didn’t get a change to take pictures this week, so I thought I would repost an outfit from a few years ago.

Gray Maxi Skirt for Modest Monday

I liked having bangs for awhile..every few years I like to do something different and I’m thinking of doing a new hairstyle again. I probably won’t cut bangs though.

Modest Monday Outfit

I like using scarves with sweaters or shirts that are lower cut. If I’m not in the mood to wear a cami, I’ll just put a scarf on and it makes the shirt modest!

Lilla Rose Flexi Clip | themodestmomblog.com

My hair is so thick that it would take forever to use a curling iron. I like hot rollers, and there is a set on Zulily right now that is really similar to the one I use.

Don’t forget that our 30 Days of Loving Your Man challenge starts today! We will start doing day one and sharing ideas in the Facebook group (you get access to the group after you purchase the bundle). We would love to have you join us!

Feminine Friday and My Favorite Things!

It’s getting closer to Valentine’s Day! People seem to have some strong opinions about this holiday. I personally like it, but we don’t go crazy overboard on it. It’s fun to treat my husband and children to something special, and this year I’m taking our girls to a special homeschool Valentine’s Day party. They are excited about that!

Ready for Valentines

Ready For Valentine’s Day

Skirt ~ Shirt ~ Boots ~ Necklace ~ Jamberry Wraps ~ Flexi Clip

I love the Jamberry nail wraps for Valentine’s Day! Our budget is tight right now (saving for a house!) or else I would have gotten some! Black and red are classic colors that always go together.

Mustard Blues

Mustard Blues

Skirt ~ Top ~ Cardigan ~ Boots ~ Lilla Rose hair sticks

Those boots!!! I think they were in an outfit last week as well. I was just as Target and should have looked at them.

Bring a Little Sunshine

 

Bring A Little Sunshine

Skirt ~ Shirt ~ Boots ~ Earrings ~ Belt ~ Jamberry Wraps ~ Flexi Clip

I have a pair of boots like these and wear them often. I think I wear my brown boots even more than my black ones.

My Favorite Things 

This dress is just beautiful! I love the skirt I have from eShakti and hope to get a few more things from them.

A brand new book by Sally Clarkson was just released this week. It’s called The Life Giving Home, and I just got it in my mailbox! I have a feeling it’s going to be life changing, and I’m excited to dig in and start reading it!

Create a beautiful home for our children, a life giving home.

My absolute favorite thing this week have been the 30 Days To Loving Your Man challenge cards that my husband designed for me! The love notes are also a favorite of mine, and I can’t wait to use them next week when we start the 30 Days to Strengthen Your Marriage challenge! You have you seen the details on that? I don’t want you to miss out, so make sure you check it out, as the challenge starts this Monday.

These love notes are perfect for Valentine's Day, surprise your man with these in his lunch box all month long!

Finally, I’ve been having fun watching Fixer Upper while I work online, It’s probably not the best thing to watch because I’m seeing all this potential in houses as I look online. My husband is not interested in doing a massive house project! :)
