We live in a box

So, for today I thought to take you on a tour of our lovely living space. Not for any one reason, but I just needed something to post and this is what came to mind. Anyway, so to begin the walk-through I will lead  you into our living room, which is also our play room, tv room, eating room. Oh, and it is also the office. Yep, definitely multifunctional. Next we have two bathrooms, two bedrooms and a kitchen. Plus, we have a balcony. And there you have it. Our little condo. Yes, we live in a box. It’s a nice box though. I mean, it [ ... ]

Nature’s Best Vitamin C Serum from Mystelic Beauty review

Vitamin C Serum review I was given this Nature’s Best Vitamin C serum through Tomoson for review and I had to grab the opportunity to try something that would help my skin. While I don’t have bad wrinkles, I do have a few lines that I would love to tone down, such as two ugly frown lines on my lower forehead between my eyes. There are also some other unwanted lines on my chin area (looks like the dreaded jowls are getting ready to start appearing, yikes!) that I’d love to make disappear. Then, have some acne marks that I am hoping to reduce and this [ ... ]

Planner YouTube videos

Planner organizers and YouTube videos are awesome I love planers and organizers, especially the cute ones full of colorful pages and decoration stickers. Unfortunately, I am so badly organized that not even a planner can keep my life straight. But, after watching some really excellent planner YouTube videos on how to set up and use a planner and/or organizer, I just think I wasn’t using the right planner or setting it up the way it would work for me. Honestly, though, I just really enjoy watching these videos with bloggers and planner fanatics showing their super-cute, super-organized planners. They are full of ideas and [ ... ]

Mom’s Night Out… the First One in Like Ever

I actually took an evening off and went on a Mom’s Night Out! Yep, I actually went out at night without the kids… Well, okay I am guessing you’re wondering what the heck the big deal is, but look, me, myself and I have not gone out without at least one child at any one point in six years, okay? So, got the hubby to babysit both kids — also for the first time ever, (and this part alone deserves a whole ‘nother post for sure!) and I was off. But, yeah, this was like a super-duper dealio for the 24-hour mama that is me… [ ... ]

And another happy birthday rolls around….

Happy Birthday to me! Ahhhh and another year goes by… Well, this year I have decided that I am going to start going backwards in age and then stop when I reach around 25 and just stay there. So, that’s no more aging for me! Yup. Have a great weekend everyone!!

I’m totally addicted to house hunting and renovation shows on HGTV

I can’t stop watching! Seriously, lately I find myself watching all these home renovation and house hunting shows on the HGTV channel and I even look forward to when they will be on at night so I can see all of them. I mean, I can watch these for freaking hours on end. It’s an obsession, I know. Ridiculous. But, I think the whole thing stems from some inner voice telling me that a new place could be a good idea in the near future for us… I love our condo, it’s in a great location right by the beach and very [ ... ]

Oh no! And I go and change the WordPress theme yet AGAIN

OMG, Somebody stop me! Ok, so I went and changed this thing AGAIN!! The other theme was super cute and I loved the desk and coffee idea. But, then, I went and ran into this item of even more cuteness, and I just really, really, really liked it. So, I had to change the damn WordPress theme again. I tried to convince myself to leave it alone as I had it, but I kept going back to it and looking at sample from the website I got it from. Like a 100 times. Finally I said, okay, the heck with this, I love this [ ... ]

Changed the WordPress Theme (Again!)

Trying a new WordPress theme for the blog to get some motivation! I am trying to start contributing more often on the blog, and decided it was time to change the WordPress theme again, to give things a fresh start… To be honest, the initial change of the theme was an accident. I was browsing through different themes after upgrading to the latest WP version and I hit “Activate” by mistake. Oops! So, I thought this was the perfect opportunity to change things up a bit here since I had already changed it whether I liked it or not. And, here it is, the new theme. [ ... ]

Lugged 2 Kids & Gear to Beach, But Where Is Everyone?

Made it from parking to the beach with the kids and all our crap! I made it to the beach with my 6-year-old and 11-month-old plus all the gear, but the people I was meeting there were nowhere to be found! I have to say that yes, we do have a beach across the street from our condo, and it would have been easier to go there. But, we had to go to the public beach up the street to meet a group of homeschoolers who meet there once a week in the summer. Anyway, I only met the group once before last year and did [ ... ]

Midnight inspiration

Midnight inspiration Is it just me or does the inspiration to write always present itself right smack in the middle of the night? And not really at midnight either, but like at 3:00 am… you know when you’re half asleep in la-la land. It’s like all these great ideas for posts come around and I don’t have any paper or pen, nor the motivation to get out of the warm bed to get them… Of course, when I wake up the next day, all those genius ideas have disappeared into the land of the dreaming and I can’t remember a thing. So, [ ... ]
