I Lost My Refrigerator Under All This Paper!

I remember back in the day when I could still see the color of my refrigerator!  If my mind serves me correctly I think it may be a chrome color, but I haven't seen it for over 14 years so i can't be too sure!  You see I am a mom, of not one, not two, but three kiddos!  Three kiddos means three little sets of creative hands making all sort of fridge worthy artwork!  Not only artwork adorns my once sleek and modern fridge, but also spelling tests, love notes, letters to the Easter Bunny.  I think Santa's wish lists still may be there as well as some lost Christmas cards we received!  At one point I had ordered these cool little photo frame magnets, so there is one little section way up high that has some organized chaos to it!  Other than that one little section of framed photos, the rest of the surface is a HOT MESS!!  There are random magnets holding things up, as well as word whammer letters! As far as I know there could even be some chewing gum holding up some of those papers!  Who knows??  How do you decide what to remove and what stays?  Who's spelling test is cooler than the other?  I don't have the heart to remove any of their hard work, so we just keep adding to it!  Well I've run out of word whammer letters, so I was in desperate need of some more magnets!  To avoid the chewing gum situation or them using up all my tape, I was offered to review some cool little push pin magnets in exchange for a review on my blog!  Now I get a lot of things to review here, but I may have been the most excited to receive this tiny little 2 inch by 2 inch box of colorful magnets more than anything!!

When I first opened the envelope in the mail, I wasn't quite sure what could be inside this tiny box.  I opened the box to see the colorful magnets inside.  I was a tiny bit sad they were so small, because I was worried they were not going to be able to stand up to the task!  holding up to the creativity in our home is a BIG job, but these little pins surprised me!  All though they be small, they are fierce!  I noticed right away when trying to remove them from one another that they were up to the task!  I am so happy that these little guys have come to join our family and help display all our future fridge worthy pieces of art!  Their strength is like none other and we are ready to put that to the test!

I received these little beauties from Ava's Office Solutions.  They come as you can see in several bright colors, and are very strong!!  I am super happy with them and give them a two thumbs up!  These would be great for white boards, refrigerators, or any magnetic surface!!  Thanks for stopping by!  

Sincerely, Ronda

Celebrating family this Easter!

***Disclosure:This post is sponsored by evite invitations, but as always all opinions are my own!

I open the windows, the birds are chirping, the orange blossoms are intoxicating, flowers are blooming, and the air is just a little warmer!  Spring is about to be upon us as well as my favorite childhood holiday...EASTER!  As a young girl I loved Easter!  I don't know if it was the feel of the warming sun on my skin, my new Easter dress and sandals, the pastels, the egg dying and baskets or the afternoon where all the family got together to celebrate!  Family has always been a huge part of who i am as a person.  Everything in life is better together and Easter was no different!  we would meet up with our cousins and aunts and uncles at my granny and papa's house.  We would have a big picnic lunch, run around and hunt for Easter eggs and build huge memories!  Now I have children of my own, and although we don't get together every year with all the extended family, the day is still so much fun!

Here are some ways we welcome The spring holidays into our home:
  • We plant flowers in the yard
  • We put out our home and lawn decorations 
  • We dye Easter eggs
  • We have an Easter Day Picnic
  • We surround ourselves with family 

Sometimes life puts us all over the map and family is not always close.  Unfortunately this is the case in our family, but thanks to Evite we are able to send a card to let the family know we are with them this season in spirit!  I made a special card for our family using Evite to let them know we are thinking about them and can't wait to get together soon!

What are some ways you celebrate Spring with your family?  We would love to hear about your traditions as well!
