Love Grows Here.

As the season is starting to change and Valentines Day is approaching, literally, it’s tomorrow, the dreaded Winter blues is melting away and Spring is near. The global pandemic feels like it is in its 10th year or season seven of whatever shows been airing that long. Nothing makes sense anymore, McDonalds’ meals are cheaper than a gallon of milk; aka inflation is no joke.

What brings me happiness in this time of chaos and “gloom and doom” thought process is simply the warmer weather approaching! I also love to decorate, not that I am any good at it, but it brings me so much joy. Decorating and DIY projects that go right is my love language, plus some good street tacos and ice cream of course.

Motherhood, well motherhood is hard and it is even harder during the winter when you have to stay inside, what feels like locked away, and staring at the same ol’ walls everyday makes you go a little, let’s say beige.

I know I am not alone in this journey, I also know I am not like the majority of people either. I have anxiety, depression, I am moody, I am weird. I am uniquely me plus two rugrats now that keep me on my toes. Makes things interesting but I would not have it any other way

I guess I am writing this entry more like a journal aka word vomit more then anything, but I am still here! Mentally, ya, I am okay, physically, I should probably stop eating so much tacos, but I am here and for once I feel like I can write, I am okay. Im doing okay. Few health scares, but I am feeling better and I am okay.

I guess I will leave it here. Spring is near and love grows here! Check up on your friends, family and even foes. Sometimes things are not always as it seems and everyone should know they are loved and that someone cares enough to simply ask, how are you doing?

Peace.

Under Stair Closet D.I.Y

I’m obsessed with D.I.Y. My husband, not so much, so when we do projects together I truly value it. Here is the latest house project we did together. This space was something that definitely needed some help but also wasn’t high on the priority list.

Here is the closet in all her glory. It was a let’s shove it in here and close the door type of situation, but i knew it had so much potential!

Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Ideas ($50 or less)

Let’s face it, time slips away and before we know it, Easter has passed and BAM it’s Mother’s Day! Your baby daddy starts to fret, but not to worry, show him this and he will be golden.

My son made me a mama back in 2017 and I am forever grateful and my sweet daughter made me a girl mom in 2019. Whether your a mom of one, an adoptive mom, step-mom, bereaved mom or a mom of 12, you go girl! Us moms, working or stay at home, sacrifice so much to keep the smiles flowing and the giggle plentiful. It’s truly hard work, so Mother’s Day, the one day of the year should truly be about us, after all we deserve it.

DreamEgg Humidifier | HONEST REVIEW

That time of year has come again where the air is dry and cold and flu is ever so prominent. Mixed with the current pandemic, it’s a recipe for disaster. I have been wanting to try a cool mist humidifier for some time, we only had a warm mist one. Our warm mist one is from Honeywell and can be bought at big box stores, I got mine at Target years ago. Humidifiers can be pretty pricy and it’s so daunting because there are a lot of horror stories of them kicking the bucket after minimal usage and becoming moldy and dysfunctional.

Mental Check In

Recently I have been really struggling a lot. My depression and anxiety cloud my days and sometimes I just want to lay in bed and veg out while I watch movies to relax my mind. We have a lot going on right now with the move, selling of our house and trying to navigate how to safety celebrate Christmas with our families. We are and have been taking Coronavirus very seriously, so moving during the pandemic and trying to safely celebrate the holiday is going to be a challenge. I am ready, but I am also scared.

Tis the season and like most, i’m ready for a new year. Not that this year was super terrible or anything for my family, we have been very blessed! But for me, it’s barely even Winter and i’m ready for sweet Summer time again. I am just not a fan of cold weather, sure, fluffy snow on Christmas is nice, but the rest of the season is blah!

Dear Body

I love you.

I hate you.

Thank you.

You failed me.

Dear my body,

You have done wondrous things, things I never imagined possible, you traveled Europe, you carried two babies, you survived college. You are amazing. I am thankful for this body, but I am also not. I had different plans for my children’s births and you failed me. I got so sick in Europe that I almost had to come home. You did survive me through college, so I will give you that one.
