Fall Fun at Enchanted Acres

Fall Fun at Enchanted Acres #NorthIowa #Iowa #midwest #Fall #northIowaBloggers donnahup #review

I am so excited that Fall is here! Growing up in south Florida we didn’t really have seasons. Okay, we had summer and hurricane season. We also bundled up when it hit 70 degrees.  Things have definitely changed for this girl.  I love that I get real seasons! Fall and Winter are my favorites.

I love the smells of Fall and seeing the beautiful colors.  I was trying to explain to my 7 yr old nephew (who lives in FL) last year that the tree really did have red leaves. I sent him a picture and he could still hardly believe it. I also love the activities that come with this time of year. Last week the other North Iowa bloggers made a trip to Enchanted Acres.

Where do I begin? There is so much to do! It’s a great place for families and there is something for everyone. I love the grounds. There is a beautiful red barn and so many picture opportunities, which I made sure to take advantage of. I want to give a thank you to Jeni from Jeni Eats. She was kind enough to take my picture all day. If it’s a picture of me, Jeni probably took it.

There was a playground with huge tractor tires, a fire pit with benches to sit around it, and animals!

They had goats and chickens. I got to pet the goats and even hold a baby chicken!  The baby chickens from Hoover’s Hatchery were adorable!

Inside, Shannon explained to us the difference between types of pumpkins. I had no idea certain ones were better for baking!  She has a huge pumpkin patch too! I can’t wait to go back in a few weeks and get some.

We had so much fun making Pumpkin Pie in a bag. It was surprisingly easy. Katy from Learning as I Go and Sara from All in an Iowa Mom’s Day are working on the filling here. I’m not sure if it’s a midwest thing, but I have never made it.  I also loved that everyone could take part. Val from Corn, Beans, Pigs, and Kids brought her two little ones and they were able to participate also.

Amy from Modern Rural Living and I had a modified version (no crust) so we got extra whip cream. My favorite part was trying our creation. Our pumpkin pie in a cup was delicious! This is something I would totally do with my nephews and nieces!

We also got to participate in arts & crafts! We used duck tape and modge podge to decorate pumpkins! It was so much fun.  Make sure to check out their Calendar of Events for the different projects and story times.

We all made a few and mine are sitting on my dining room table now.  It was such a great day. I can’t wait to go back! I highly recommend it for a day of fall fun!

Have fun staying organized with Erin Condren Designs #Review donnahup

I love calendars and tools to stay organized. While I have all sorts of apps with calendars on my smart phone there’s something that I really love about my calendar. I like that I can open it and see it and write it down. Erin Condren makes organization fun!

The covers themselves and the look are so much fun, but they don’t stop there. They also include stickers and colored markers.

Have fun staying organized with Erin Condren Designs #Review donnahup

It makes it fun and easy for me to stay organized.  They carry quality items and my planner from 2014 is holding up like a champ still.

They carry all sorts of products and they’re all unique.

When I started this personalized stationery business from my home years ago, there really wasn’t anything online that thrilled me. Everything online seemed so static and I tend to think outside the box! I always loved creating my own unique Christmas cards, birthday invitations, thank you notes and more. After several home shopping parties, I decided it was time to offer my collection to the world.

I created a website that could showcase custom paper products that would include photo cards, address labels, gift labels, custom business cards, and even a personalized growth chart. As time went on and my company grew, I merged with a fine art printing company that opened the door to so many customizable possibilities…I truly felt like a kid in a candy store with all the digital printing equipment and fine art giclee printing capabilities. We were able to add wrapping paper, canvas enlargements with personalized borders, and soon we will be offering custom wallpaper and more! I am proud to say we design and print all products in house, with the exception of our custom iPhone cases.

I love all the “extras” that you are able to get like the tab dividers and stickers with quotes.  You can shop by color or collection. For me, choosing the pattern is the most difficult! There’s so many different ones to choose from.

Fresh. Easy. Beautiful. The Bouqs Company: Bouquets, Simplified

Fresh. Easy. Beautiful. The Bouqs Company: Bouquets, Simplified #review donnahup

There is something so wonderful about receiving fresh flowers. I love the fragrance they give off as well as how beautiful they are to look at. I love having a vase of fresh flowers on my dining room table. I live in Northern Iowa (right on the Minnesota border) so it’s not always easy to get fresh flowers. Even ordering them to be shipped can be interesting with below freezing temperatures. I had the opportunity to try out a bouquet from Bouqs.

Fresh. Easy. Beautiful. The Bouqs Company: Bouquets, Simplified #review donnahup

 Our flowers never sit in a corner store or a dingy warehouse (where they send you the oldest, most-dead flowers they have in the fridge), and they never show up in a van with a 1-800 number on the side. We ship straight from an active volcano or from the sunny surf of California, seriously – we’re putting a little romance back in the Bouq.

Fresh. Easy. Beautiful. The Bouqs Company: Bouquets, Simplified #review donnahup

I think one of the coolest things is that they are grown on an actual volcano in South America!  Their selection is gorgeous! I also love that they are a sustainable and eco-friendly. They source only from eco-friendly, sustainable farms that respect the environment and their workers.

Fresh. Easy. Beautiful. The Bouqs Company: Bouquets, Simplified #review donnahup

My flowers lasted about 3 and a half weeks! That’s unheard of, especially because I *might* forget to change the water as often as I should. They looked good at 3 weeks too. The picture below shows the flower then.

Fresh. Easy. Beautiful. The Bouqs Company: Bouquets, Simplified #review donnahup

So what’s the difference? What makes Bouqs better?

The first big difference is that they only cut what they sell. There is no wasting like some supply chains.  Across hundreds of thousands of bouquets a year, that’s a lot of wasted land, resources, labor and fuel. They only cut when you order, so they avoid the waste.

They also save energy through their direct-from-the-farm supply chain. The standard supply chain must keep stems cold for up to 2 weeks, meaning hundreds of hours of refrigeration and the associated energy use. They use cold storage for only 4 days from the Volcano, and not at all from California, resulting in a lot of energy savings.

Finally, their farms provide living wages, childcare, healthcare and adult education. And their growing business supports farm communities, so you can feel good about shopping The Bouqs Company’s flowers.

Another great feature I like about them is that you can add in birthdays and anniversaries to your account and they’ll auto ship flowers to them! You can also order a monthly service so you always have fresh flowers.

Based on the novel by:              Judith Viorst

 

Disney’s “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life—a day that begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by one calamity after another. But when Alexander tells his upbeat family about the misadventures of his disastrous day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him. He soon learns that he’s not alone when his mom (Jennifer Garner), dad (Steve Carell), brother (Dylan Minnette) and sister (Kerris Dorsey) all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Anyone who says there is no such thing as a bad day just hasn’t had one.
 
“Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,” directed by Independent Spirit Award-winner Miguel Arteta (“The Good Girl,” “Cedar Rapids,” “Youth in Revolt”) from a screenplay by Rob Lieber, is a 21 Laps Entertainment/Jim Henson Company production. The film hits theaters nationwide Oct. 10, 2014.

 

In theaters Oct. 10, 2014, Disney’s “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” follows 11-year-old Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life—and soon learns that he’s not alone when his mom (Jennifer Garner), dad (Steve Carell), brother (Dylan Minnette) and sister (Kerris Dorsey) all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

 

NOTES:

·       Director Miguel Arteta won the 2001 Independent Spirit Award for best feature under $500,000 for “Chuck & Buck.”

·       “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,” published in 1972, was written by Judith Viorst,   illustrated by Ray Cruz and inspired by Viorst’s sons Alexander, Anthony and Nicholas. With more than 2 million copies in print, it became an ALA Notable Children’s Book and won a George G. Stone Center Recognition of Merit, a Georgia Children’s Book Award, and distinction as a Reading Rainbow book. Viorst penned the sequels: “Alexander, Who Used to be Rich Last Sunday” (1978) and “Alexander, Who’s Not (Do You Hear Me? I Mean It!) Going to Move” (1995).
·       The 1972 book was first adapted to the small screen as a half-hour HBO animated musical in 1990 before Viorst collaborated with composers Charles Strouse (music) and Shelley Markham (musical score) for a 1998 stage musical at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

·       “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” is the first live-action film adaptation of the children’s classic.
