Basic Invite (15% Off Included!)

Thanks to Basic Invite, I am sending out Christmas cards this year.

They might even be early, too. (I know, I know, for those of you who know me, this will be a shock.)

I also found the perfect card for Nicholas’ lumberjack-themed 1st birthday party.

Why Basic Invite?

Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once a design is selected, customers can change the color of each element on the card. With over 180 colors to choose from, you can match your other vision to the card. You can also choose 40 different envelope colors. All of the envelopes are “peel and seal” so they can be closed quickly and securely.

I received custom samples before I placed my order. I loved the paper quality and wanted to make sure it met my expectations before sending my holiday cards and birthday invitations to family and friends.

Basic Invite offers an address-capturing service that allows customers to share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media to request their friend’s and family’s addresses. The addresses are stored in the customer’s account and can be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders. They can also mail the cards for you, making card sending super easy…especially for busy moms like me!

For those interested in foil cards, gold, silver, and rose gold options are available. Customers can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs.

It was really fun to design our family Christmas card and Nick’s birthday card. I really like how I can truly customize everything; and loved how I can import addresses of my family and friends to save myself the trouble of printing labels and/or writing addresses by hand. Basic Invite is simple to navigate, and gives so many options.

Right now, Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51

Make sure you browse all of the Merry Christmas Cards & family holiday cards that Basic Invite has to offer. Basic Invite is also on social media: Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter! Make sure to give them a follow!

A New Way to Homeschool with Allschool

Em has been taking Allschool classes for the past month. We absolutely love online learning and getting ready for kindergarten! What is Allschool, you ask?

Explore Thousands of Fun Classes Online

Allschool has over 3,000 online classes for kids ages 3+ where interests can be explored, and academic journeys can be broadened. 𝔸𝕝𝕝𝕤𝕔𝕙𝕠𝕠𝕝 𝕠𝕗𝕗𝕖𝕣𝕤 𝕒 𝕨𝕚𝕕𝕖 𝕧𝕒𝕣𝕚𝕖𝕥𝕪 𝕠𝕗 𝕔𝕝𝕒𝕤𝕤𝕖𝕤 𝕤𝕦𝕔𝕙 𝕒𝕤 𝕕𝕒𝕟𝕔𝕖, 𝕪𝕠𝕘𝕒, 𝕞𝕦𝕤𝕚𝕔, 𝕝𝕒𝕟𝕘𝕦𝕒𝕘𝕖, 𝕤𝕔𝕚𝕖𝕟𝕔𝕖 𝕖𝕩𝕡𝕖𝕣𝕚𝕞𝕖𝕟𝕥𝕤, 𝕔𝕠𝕞𝕡𝕖𝕥𝕚𝕥𝕚𝕠𝕟 𝕞𝕒𝕥𝕙, 𝕝𝕚𝕗𝕖 𝕤𝕜𝕚𝕝𝕝𝕤, 𝕒𝕟𝕕 𝕤𝕠 𝕞𝕦𝕔𝕙 𝕞𝕠𝕣𝕖!

Run, Run, As Fast As You Can!

Em joined Ms. Hannah for 𝕿𝖍𝖊 𝕲𝖎𝖓𝖌𝖊𝖗𝖇𝖗𝖊𝖆𝖉 𝕸𝖆𝖓 class where Ms. Hannah read the book and asked relevant questions. Em earned stars for correct answers, and the class was super engaging. Ms. Hannah also played a roll the dice game where Em had to draw body parts on the gingerbread man to match the corresponding die and then colored her own 𝕲𝖎𝖓𝖌𝖊𝖗𝖇𝖗𝖊𝖆𝖉 𝕸𝖆𝖓!

Ms. Rae taught Em two classes: Prepositions of Place with Piccolo (next to & between, in & on), Ms. Colleen read Em The Pout-Pout Fish for a Kindergarten readiness class, and Ms. Brenda instructed: A Bear Made a Cake in my Kitchen, which asked several critical thinking questions about what does and does not belong in a chocolate cake.

A Necessity for the Academic Journey

Em is certainly getting ready for Kindergarten! Allschool is an excellent addition to the academic curriculum as it provides children with one-on-one attention that a traditional classroom does not offer. Moreover, Allschool allows children to explore their favorite interests or discover a new hobby, and they tend to learn better that way. I love how all classes on Allschool are led by certified teachers, making it fun and interactive with the innovative star reward system. The next class we plan on taking is about space!

When we were gifted a 𝗚𝗼 𝗠𝗶𝗻𝗻𝗼 subscription, I was so excited to give Em access to tons of Bible-based shows, songs, and cartoons to help her learn about Jesus and His word. It allows us to have conversations about our faith in a fun manner. We stream episodes to our television and she has access on her Kindle, too.

Em had a particular fancy for the 𝗩𝗲𝗴𝗴𝗶𝗲𝗧𝗮𝗹𝗲𝘀 episode, Penniless Princess. She was dancing and laughing for most of the show.

YOSUDA Indoor Cycling Bike

One day, I’ll have a room dedicated to having a home gym.

One day, I’ll be able to go to the gym without 10,000 phone calls wondering when I’ll be home.

In the meantime, I will enjoy riding my YOSUDA Indoor Cycling Bike (version L007A) from the comforts of my home.

The YOSUDA Indoor Cycling Bike is a perfect upright stationary bike with a cushioned seat holding riders up to 330 lbs.

YOSUDA L007A Bike

The LCD display shows all your important stats: distance, speed, calories, time and RPM.

The adjustable seat moves up and down and in and out. The handlebars also adjust up/down to give you a comfortable ride. The cage type non-slip pedals also keep my feet secure and the transportation wheels make moving the bike a breeze.

The belt is super silent, so I can ride while Emilia naps without a problem. At 20 weeks pregnant, exercising is a top priority to hopefully have a shorter labor and delivery. (Cross your fingers and toes for me, friends).

A water bottle holder is on the right lower side of the bike; make sure you stay hydrated!

The adjustable resistance creates an uphill feel; I love riding at a high resistance to really give my legs a great workout.

As a working mom, the YOSUDA Indoor Cycling Bike gives me a great cardiovascular workout. After I have my son, I hope to get my Group Fitness Certificate in Indoor Cycling. I hope to teach both in-person and virtually, so the YOSUDA Indoor Cycling Bike will get rack up many glorious, sweaty miles.
