{FREE Printable} Primary Chevron Theme Homeschool Binder

theSAHMlife.com | {FREE Printable} Primary Chevron Theme Homeschool Binder #freebies #printables #homeschool #portfolio #stayathomemom #sahmThe homeschool portfolio… dun dun duuun! It’s not required in all states (like ours), but it’s good to keep nonetheless. If for no other reason than memories from when these kiddos fly the coop.

It seems like a daunting task and everyone has their own way to go about it… where do you begin? With this set! It’s just some pretties for your binder, but hey, at least you’re starting somewhere. (more…)

Target Revamps Their Plus Size Dept… Meet Ava & Viv

theSAHMlife.com | Target Revamps Their Plus Size Dept... Meet Ava & Viv #plussize #fashion #target #ava&viv #stayathomemom #sahm

After ignoring a large percentage {no pun intended} of their customer base and letting their plus size women’s clothing department waste away to nothingness, Target has finally delivered on their we-all-thought-they-were-empty promises and announced their new plus size line, Ava & Viv.

Whaaat?! IT’S TRUE.

The best part is that they used some of the hottest plus size fashion bloggers – like my personal favorite, Gabi Gregg aka the fatkini girl – to not only deliver the news, but as models. Real women, real bodies, real feedback. *hallelujah*

Ava & Viv will kick off with a Spring/Summer collection which includes about a hundred pieces that go up to size 24/26. The line will start making it’s appearance in stores on February 22nd. (more…)

Choosing the right dance studio… and how to leave.

theSAHMlife | Choosing the right dance studio ...and how to leave. #dance #studio #classes #sahm #stayhomemomI’m a firm believer that all children should log some time at a dance studio. I’ll even go as far to say that all little girls should take ballet for a number of years. Dance teaches a myriad of life skills – it’s just so much more than movement!

Whether you’re signing your child up to dance with his/her school friends at the neighborhood dance studio or you have spent a few years at a dance studio and wonder if there’s more out there, hopefully this post will help you navigate choosing a dance studio. I’ll also share with you how to leave a dance studio gracefully because Lord knows how messy that can get!  (more…)

Truth: I have a late bloomer.

theSAHMlife.com | Truth: I Have a Late Bloomer #1stgrade #reading #nofear #hope #homeschool #sahm #stayathomemomShe’s six years and six months old. She’s a late bloomer in most aspects.

She started walking after many of her peers, but it wasn’t because she was unable to do so. She’s just overly cautious and had to use an apparatus to feel safe. For real – until very recently she would ask to be carried down stairs and even now, two feet still hit each step.

While all of her peers have their toothless faces plastered all over my Facebook feed, her pearly whites are still firmly planted.

She’s also a late bloomer when it comes to reading. (more…)

theSAHMlife | Goal Setting {+FREE PRINTABLES} #goals #lifebinder #freebies #printables #sahm #stayhomemomTonight I attended the Junior League training session Make 2015 the Best Year Yet! Our lovely hostess and fellow League member, Megan, pulled bits and pieces of various programs – goal identification/setting/maintaining, strengths, passions, values, etc. – to build one helluva presentation and worksheet packet to help us prepare for the year ahead.

There was also wine… and Milano cookies… mmm! Back to the program…  (more…)

Foodie Friday | The Commissary, Memphis

Since back in the day at the KC Royale BBQ & Clogging Championships, I’ve been a smoked meat with sweet heat addict. I remember KC Masterpiece BBQ back when it was just a little mom-n-pop booth at that competition. I smuggled several packages of their heavenly sauce in my clogging shoe bag. …and I wonder how I got fat.

My in-laws live just outside Memphis which is a city I plan on eating my way through ever so slowly. Kansas City and Memphis are where it’s at when it comes to bbq. (more…)
