Back to School with a Staples Giftcard Giveaway

I’ve partnered with Staples and MomBuzz Media to bring you this post. All opinions are mine. #MomBuzz #Back2SchoolHQ #MailNShip

Back to School Staples Giftcard Giveaway

 

Back to School with a Staples Giftcard Giveaway

Back to School can be a seriously expensive time. New clothes, new shoes, school fees, and school supply lists can really break the bank.

And homeschoolers can add in new curriculum to that long list of supplies! While we often don’t need the same thing as our public school counter-parts, homeschoolers can still shell out a lot of money for back to school.

That’s why I’m happy to have a quick Staples Giftcard Giveaway to help you out, whether you’re a public schooler, a private schooler, or a homeschooooler like us- $100 or $50 at Staples would be pretty darn awesome!

Even Homeschooled Kids Get New B2S Twistform Shoes

I participated in a Blog Blast Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Reebok. I received a gift card to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. #Twistform #IC #ad

Even Homeschooled Kids Get New Back to School Shoes #Twistform #IC #ad Jumping outside from SimplifyLiveLove.com

The other day we headed to the Finish Line shoe store at the mall, because even homeschooled kids get new back to school Reebok Twistform shoes. While homeschooling is growing in popularity, there’s still sometimes a stigma associated with it. We don’t all wear demin jumpers and we do need shoes. But only once in a while. Because honestly, part of the beauty of homeschooling is lounging around all day in our jammies watching soaps and eating bon bons, right? Oh wait – that’s just what stay at home moms do? I jest, I jest!! 😀

Tuesday Garden Party – Garden Inspiration for 8/18/2015

Here we are on another Tuesday already! This summer is flying by for me. I can’t believe all of the people whose kids have already gone back to school. We’re not quite there yet, but are supposed to start next week! How about you?
Tuesday Garden Party 8.18 from simplifylivelove.com

I’ve honestly been ignoring my garden for the most part lately. The cucumbers need to be pulled out as they’re done. I’m still waiting on the full swing of tomatoes -they just haven’t gone bonkers yet this year. Some of the plants are loaded with tomatoes, but they’re just taking their sweet time to ripen. I’m really surprised at how slow the tomatoes are this year. My beans are another story, though! I am very excited about my dried beans. I love the Jacobs Cattlebeans – they’re drying nicely on the plants and are so pretty. I opened one yesterday to see what I’ve got. My Rattlesnake Beans were planted later and they’re growing nicely up the corn in the Three Sisters Garden, but they haven’t started dying back yet. And the pumpkins are awesome! I can’t believe how nice my pumpkins look. I’m most proud of them. They aren’t really useful for eating, but I will really enjoy decorating with them. :-)
