Christmas Traditions

You guys…..there are 10 days until Christmas. I’M SO EXCITED! My boys are constantly waking up and reminding us how many more days until Christmas. Which I can’t lie I’m ready to give them their presents. We still have a few things to get them but we will be ready to wrap and put them under the tree on the 23rd. I’m sure you guys are wondering “Well Christmas Eve is on the 24th?”. Growing up my family ALWAYS celebrated Christmas on Christmas Eve meaning the whole family would get together on the 24th, we would have a big feast and then open presents. 

Travel Essentials for the Holidays

With the holidays being around the corner today I’m going to be sharing with you some Travel Essentials for the Holidays to keep you prepared and sane. Holiday traveling can be quite a pain sometimes especially with this kids. Let’s be honest we’ve always forgotten something in our bags especially something for the kids or we have to run to the our local coffee shop to get coffee because there’s no time to sit down at home and enjoy it. 

DIY Noel Letters

Happy Friday babes. I’m doing something new on my blog. Since I’m a stay at home mom I’ve been wanting to do more DIY at home to pass time while the kids are at school. So I wanted to do my own “Noel” letters because I couldn’t find something I really liked at stores. Plus it’s cheaper to do it yourself. With the holidays coming up soon I definitely want to do more some holiday diy’s on the blog and hopefully you guys will like it. 

November Goals

Hello November. You guys we only have two months left of 2016! November is finally here and that means we have 22 days until Thanksgiving. WHAT!!!! I don’t know about you but we love Thanksgiving. I can stuff my face with delicious food and spend time with my family. Now that October is over, time to start planning some goals for November. 

Fall Bucket List Update

On the first day of fall we created a fall bucket list which I shared on my blog (read here). I wanted to update you guys with our bucket list and how we’re doing. This year I’m quite proud of how much we have completed. Last year we didn’t get to do that. 

October Goals

Happy October. We are literally 28 days away from Halloween, 51 days away from Thanksgiving, 83 days away from Christmas and 90 days away from New Year’s Eve. HOLY CRAP! I can’t believe 2016 is almost over. It’s been a while since I’ve done monthly goals on my blog and I figured I would start doing them again. I’m not sure why I stopped.  I definitely feel like I find myself accountable when I share it on my blog. Does anyone else feel that way too?

I’m so excited that it’s officially Fall. I have been ready for Fall since August. I’m not a huge fan of spring/summer because it’s when my allergies are TERRIBLE. Plus fall is the best; you can wear leggings, jeans, sweaters, scarfs and of course boots. I love it. Since it’s the first day of Fall, I wanted to share with you guys OUR Fall Bucket List. We also decided to do a Nature Scavenger Hunt this year with the boys, so we can enjoy fall before winter comes. We have short fall and long winter weather. 

It’s My Birthday – Turning 28

Growing up when it came down to my birthday I would be that girl who needed a whole a week to celebrate her birthday. When I became a mom at 20 I realized that birthdays weren’t going to be the same anymore because I wasn’t able to do the things I wanted to. I mean I could but I chose not to. My energy goes into my little guys because that’s what matters to me.  Today I’m turning 28 and I’m really realizing that it’s not about how I celebrate my birthday but being thankful I’m able to see another year. Looking back at my life I’m really happy with the person I am today. 

White with Style

Whitening my teeth is something I have always done since I got my braces off in high school. My parents paid a lot of money for me to have straight teeth so I told myself I would make sure that I took good care of them. Now some whitening products out there can ruin your enamel but I have found something that doesn’t.  I’ve tried so many whitening strips and Crest 3D whitening strips are by far my favorite strips BUT I started to notice that my teeth were hurting me after a few months of using them. Come to find out that I was ruining my enamel. Not good at all. So I had to stop using the strips and just stick with the toothpaste, flossing and mouth wash. 

JORD Wood Watch

Fashion isn’t something I’m a huge fan of. As you can see I love beauty more than anything. But that doesn’t stop me from making sure I have on a cute pair of jeans, shoes, top and of course accessories. I use to work at Charlotte Russe and I would be obsessed with the accessories. Watches were the first thing I started to REALLY like because I like having something around wrists.  Thanks to JORD, I was able to partner with them and I immediately fell in love with their purpleheart & plum wood watch I knew this was the watch I wanted.
