Give the Gift of Food on a Table this Holiday Season with #NoKidHungry

1 in 5 children! That number just is not acceptable. For many of these children their only meal of the day is school lunch and over the holidays many wonder where their next meal will come from. You can help though!

1 in 5 children! That number just is not acceptable. For many of these children their only meal of the day is school lunch and over the holidays many wonder where their next meal will come from. You can help though!

After homeschooling for six years, I have learned that the way my kids want to learn changes as often as the seasons. Sometimes they prefer the computer, sometimes they want workbooks and more hands on activities. The constant flip flop has helped ease me into allowing for more interest led learning over the years, because, let's face it, I can't afford a new curriculum every time they lose interest in a method.

It has been an interesting week in our odd little home. Interesting, but one that has been full of laughter, accomplishment and snuggles accompanied by our favorite holiday movies.

Seriously ya'll, I'm sitting here completely mortified over an hour after what will surely be my most embarrassing moment of the year...possibly decade. But before I tell you about the cop, my nipples and utter humiliation, let me tell you about the rest of the day that led up to it.

Once upon a time, before I had three kids and could slip into a hot bath without chaos ensuing, I would actually keep up shaving the hairy beast that are my legs. These days I'm more likely to be found sporting my dark hair and love to play it off as a layer of warmth in the colder months. 

In all honesty, I've never enjoyed shaving and that is partly do with the fact that I have never found a woman's razor that I like and a tiny piece of my frugal heart breaks each time I have to dish out cash for a new batch of men's blades.
