Sunday Fun Day: Taking a Vacation?

Many people are excited about having a 3 day weekend this week. What are your plans?

I get four days away from my day job every week and didn’t end up getting any extra time off this week, but I can’t complain.

Anybody taking a vacation, getting on the road with the kids in the family car? Or are you just going to take a break and veg a little?

The timing of things is funny. I just mentioned in my last post that I was getting a bit tired and then shortly after the owners of wallinspired decided they wanted me to take a hiatus from the blog. So the wallinspired blog will be taking a hiatus.

I thank wallinspired for approaching me with this opportunity to write for them. I have learned a LOT and I discovered my strengths and weaknesses when it comes to running a project like this. I will still be writing at my own blog Pieces of Elise’s – so please check it out. I really appreciate all of your support to my writing! Now hopefully I can put in more time writing for myself 🙂

This is Elise signing off from the wallinspired blog – have a great weekend everyone! Until next time 🙂

Saturday Sales: Time for a Little Monkey Business

I went through a phase where I was obsessed with making my bedroom into a jungle. I think I was 11 or 12. I had a bunch of monkey stuffed animals that I would try to hang and prop in different corners of my room. I even had a monkey that screeched “OOOOOH EEEEAHHH AHHH AHH AHHHHHHH!” or something like that. In one of my windows I strung up some puppet/mobile animals I made. I had an ostrich, a slender loris, a bush baby, and lemurs. I had other animal pictures in different parts of my room, too.

Do you have a little one like that, or are you yourself into the jungle theme? Check out the treasury below, and see if you can spot the on sale wallinspired item 🙂

Thursday Food for Thought: When Was the Last Time You Tried Something New?

Good morning!

I’m excited to start this day and I hope you are, too.

If you’re not, I’m sorry. Maybe asking yourself this question will help you explore the great potential each day offers us to learn, grow, and be happy.

When was the last time you tried something new? Do you remember?

Did you try eating at  a new restaurant? Or did you eat a fish taco for the first time? (I did a few weeks ago).

Did you listen to some music from an artist that you just recently discovered? Or did you try writing your own song?

Please share the new things you’ve tried recently and what you plan to try today!

Just comment below!

Saturday Sales & Spring Break

I hope you’re having a great Saturday!

Have you had a spring-time vacation, or are you hoping for one?

A lot of kids are just wrapping up their spring break or they are about to start it. So if your kids are on spring break coming up soon, how will they be spending their break? Will your family take a fun vacation somewhere exciting? Or will the kids be “stuck” at home?

If you’re kids are part of the latter group, do you have a strategy of how to prevent boredom and complaining from setting in?

If not – don’t worry, Sarah Caron from SheKnows Parenting has got your back! I just found her article “12 TV-free Spring Break activities for kids”. 12 tips! I just had to share this with you guys. Please check it out and safe yourself some grief!

My favorite tip was the art show – probably because I would enjoy it more than the kids would 😛

Since we’re on the spring break, vacation subject and it’s Saturday Sales day – I figured it was an absolutely perfect time to share with you a beachy item in wallinspired. It’s a personalized kids palm tree and surfboard decal – a great gift for your little girl who loves the beach and wants to be there 24/7, but unfortunately happens to be land-locked in the midwest.

So please share how yourspring break went or is going and let me know if you had successwith the tips from the article!
