I came close in making a top 5 favorite, but couldn’t compromise. So here are my top 6 out of the 15!

In no special order:

  • Please, Louise

    Because I am working with Eden not being impressionable towards the scary and dreary. This story shows how books can help.

  • The Frazzle Family

    Because I can relate to being frazzled and forgetting. Plus, our household loves to sing about anything we might be doing that day.

  • In New York

    Because I loved the Illustrations. Then I loved how it was educating. Lastly, It made me want to visit New York even more…with my kids!

  • No Slurping, No Burping!

    Because I have seen it’s positive effects on my girls when we are eating. Aaannd, if I have to have another reason; I liked that it was the kids helping the adult.

  • Prickly Rose

    Because it shows how girls can be adventurous. Because it was about sisters.

  • Scarlatti’s Cat

    Because I learned something new. Because it was a story about a cat, and I’m not allowed to have a cat(thanks to husband’s request).

Lovin’ Me Some Consignment Window Shopping

I found my new favorite consignment shop: Consignment Classics

http://consignmentclassics.net/

We went there as a family so I could show Jake a few things I liked. Ayzia found her favorite couches. She and I talked about how fun it would be to get them; when she’s old enough to have her own apartment.

Ayzia loved the shape! This would be her reading couch.

Ayzia loved how soft and comfy this couch was.

This can be made flat like a bed. I don't know how Ayzia felt about me sleeping on it when I came to visit, but I was excited.

This was $80.00 It looks like an oil painting but its probably a print. The frame is in perfect condition. There part of a white sticker there at the bottom.
