10 things I want my daughter to know (but also very applicable to all humans, really) πŸ’‘

1. You are responsible for your own happiness.

No person, place, or thing will EVER make you happy. Remember that. Happiness is a positive attitude and mindset no matter what the circumstance. Even in the face of life’s ups and downs, it is maintaining emotional positivity. Its getting through the darkness knowing there will be light at the end of the tunnel. It’s being grateful for what you have instead of wishing for what you don’t have.

Thank You 2017 πŸ™πŸ»

Thank You 2017 πŸ™πŸ»

I know we’re week three into the new year, and this post may seem a little tardy haha, but I’ve been adjusting to a new routine and also, mom life πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ. I wanted to reflect on the wonderful year I had in 2017. In the past I’ve always been so quick to close the door on another year, and start fresh in the new year, but I wanted to show my gratitude to 2017. It was such an accomplishing year for me. There were so many blessings. I birthed a baby, birthed a blog, blossomed in my role as a mother (of now two), and fulfilled one of my career long dreams.

Comfort Design Mats ☁️

Comfort Design Mats ☁️

Currently packing away all the holiday decor, and last minute decide to spruce up my home decor a bit because… new year, new me right haha πŸ’πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ! Part of my mini home decor makeover was receiving our stylish, cushioned play mat from Comfort Design Mats. What a great product this is!

When I received this mat and laid it out to give it a try, I was impressed. It was nicely packaged, there were no harsh chemical smells out of the box, and no kinks or wrinkles. It flattened out nice and quickly and the product itself came as pictured as it was on their website. Continue reading “Comfort Design Mats ☁️”

How to get a toddler (or even an adult) to eat their vegetables πŸ₯•

How to get a toddler (or even an adult) to eat their vegetables πŸ₯•

When I first became a mom there was one stage that I dreaded the most. The “picky eater” stage. The thought of going to battle with a mini food terrorist turned up the mom anxiety to the max. It was difficult enough having to make a home cooked meal after a long day at work, and adding a picky eater to that was challenging to say the least.Β I’m also sensitive when it comes to being of service to someone. I always want to do a good job, especially when it comes to cooking for my family. I found myself getting a little upset πŸ˜‘ when my toddler refused the wonderfully presented, 4 course meal I made with all 5 food groups 🀣. I needed to set more realistic expectations I know haha.

The Couple App Review πŸ”‘

The Couple App Review πŸ”‘

A Sunday (glimpse) in the life of this mother of two.

It always starts with a huge cup of coffee, moves on to getting my kids ready for the day, then some fun mixed in with errands (to help get the rest of the week going), some meal prepping, coffee #2 haha, and ending with my kids’ bedtime routine and relaxing on the couch with my love πŸ’•.

I can’t take all the credit though and am happy to say that my fiancΓ© Mike is a very involved father to our kids, and partner in managing our home. We actually balance each other out well when it comes to responsibilities of the home. I’ll cook, he’ll clean. He’ll throw in the load of laundry, I’ll fold it all. We’ll take turns bathing the kids and putting them to bed. We’re like a well oiled machine!

Part of that success is the love and respect we have for each other (insert cheesy emoticon) and the other part is having the tools/technology to succeed haha. This leads me to the holy grail of apps for Couples, The Couple App (name doing its justice).
