Top 10 Items to Get from the Dollar Tree

Top 10 Items to Get from the Dollar Tree
It kind of kills me to pay more than I need to for things. Like if I stop by a pricier grocery store to pick up a few things I inwardly (sometimes outwardly) groan. It's always a goal to find the best quality for the lowest price. That includes a few things from the Dollar Tree. You'd never guess it, but there are a few things you can get there cheaper than anywhere else. Whenever I go I stock up on some of these items so I always have them on hand and never have to pay extra at different stores. So if you are looking to save some extra cash (summer vacations are coming up soon after all) here are my recommendations! By the way, this isn't sponsored in any way!

How to Wear Snakeskin This Summer & Confident Twosday Linkup

I think we can all agree that animal print in general is more of a classic than a trend at this point. That said, different animal prints tend to be trending more than others at certain times and snakeskin is most definitely having a day right now. It works so nicely with the dark, cool colors of winter, but how can you find pieces and colors to pair with it for spring and summer? It's actually surprisingly easy! I'm sharing a few outfit ideas and fun items that will help you rock the snakeskin print this season and next!

Why Pets Help Keep You Happy

Why Pets Help Keep You Happy

For a few months earlier in the year I had mentioned we were hoping to get a dog. It never worked out for one reason or another, but now the time seems right. We bought a cavachon puppy that we are picking up in 2 weeks. I've never been a dog owner, but I have had a cat since middle school. I am really happy we are raising our kids with pets. Our 6 year old daughter is learning responsibility in helping to feed and care for our cat and will do the same for the dog when he arrives. Our little one is learning how to treat animals nicely. Whether you have a pet fish, hamster, dog, horse, or something more unique, pets improve our lives every day. We bond with our pets in different ways that we do other humans. They provide us with unconditional love and support, raising our self-esteem as we successfully provide for them. People that identify as a "pet parent" are often happier than those that do not have any. See a few of the reasons pets can help keep us happy!
