MOTHER’S DAY GIVEAWAY + FALLING FOR FRIDAY LINK UP / 13 (CLOSED)

SHABBY-MOTHERS-DAY

Oh happy Friday, happy F R I D A Y ! ! ! !
And happy almost Mother’s day.

That super awesome one day of the year where us SAH-ers finally get a ‘day off’ – yeah right. And even though it’s a day of celebrating all mothers it still makes us all feel just a little bin inadequate. I have personally cried out of frustration and a sense of failure on all three of the past Mother’s days. I think I need to get over that perfect image in my head and simply focus on doing my best, and showing my love the best way I know how.

Either way a little retail therapy can certainly help out the situation!
And you are all in luck, because we have a very special treat for all you ladies.

FALLING FOR FRIDAY LINK UP / 10

FFF_ANNOUNCEMENT_THEPERFECTPEAR

Lets talk about books for a minute. When was the last time you sat down and read an entire book? For me, it was waaay back while pregnant with the twins. I made the switch to an eReader when the hubs gave me a kindle touch, which I love by the way, but finding the time to read an entire book is ridiculously difficult these days. Mostly because I’m super picky and like to be able to read my books in large chunks. If all I have time for is a page or two, I don’t view it as worth my time.

This week however, I made the exception because I was dying to read this book. I read a little here and little there, while feeding one baby and then the next… and you know what? I actually finished the book! Sure, I stayed up too late a few nights. And even found myself reading at odd hours in the middle of the night, like if I had to get up to take Quinn potty. But holy moly I actually finished the book! And all of my worries about not being able to fully get into the book and remember what was going on were complete hogwash.

So it is with great pleasure that I dedicate this weeks Falling For post to reading. Without a doubt I fell back in love with reading this week. I even find myself reading to my kids more than I had been, which all-in-all is alright by me.

They say that if you want to raise children who love to read that you should read while in their presence. Not necessarily to them. It’s more the act of you reading and them seeing it that will really foster that deep seeded love.
