A Diaper-Free House and Potty-Training Tips

A Diaper-Free House and Potty-Training Tips

BG3, Parenting 0

Looks like it’s that time again, the time that all parents both dread and wait impatiently for… Potty-training! BG3 is creeping up on turning two and like with her sisters, I wanted to keep up the trend of getting my daughter potty-trained by the time they turn two. Each girl handled it fairly well and I had high hopes that the baby would follow suit. I ended up doing things… Read more »

Our Valentine’s Day Tradition

Our Valentine’s Day Tradition

Marriage, On My Mind 0

Ever since we first started dating, I made it clear to the Hubs that just because we were together, that didn’t automatically make me his Valentine. Now, we’ve never held Valentine’s Day in high regards, as I’d much rather celebrate love everyday as opposed to one manufactured date, but the Hubs is a bit of a romantic and always likes to ask me anyways. We don’t do anything in particular… Read more »

On My Mind 5

This past year, and even before that if I’m honest, I have really lost my love for book blogging and reviewing. It was more of a job or obligation than a fun hobby. After doing it for a few years, I think I’m just done with the idea altogether. I never felt like I was very creative in having original bookish content and it all came down to reviews and… Read more »

Don’t Just Save. Live!

Don’t Just Save. Live!

On My Mind 0

One thing that is always on my mind: Money Being an adult means thinking about money. Making money. Saving money. And of course, spending money. I’m naturally a frugal person, always looking for the best deal, not buying things (for the most part) unless they’re on sale, and not really taking any time out to spoil myself. This is especially true after I became a mother, as basically all that… Read more »

My Lowest Point…So Far

My Lowest Point…So Far

On My Mind 4

As you might have noticed, I’ve been a little bit absent on the blog and on social media lately. Things have been very depressing and emotional for me lately and honestly, I’ve been feeling all kinds of lost and dejected. I’m at a point in my life where I don’t know what I’m doing or where I’m going and that’s seriously affected my state of mind. So, I’m sure I… Read more »

No More Formula. Ever!

No More Formula. Ever!

Parenting 0

Yes! We’ve reached another milestone in our family/with the kids. After we decided to slowly introduce cow’s milk to BG3 by mixing it with her formula, she took to it very well. We started with 2 parts formula and 1 part cow’s milk and then gradually went up on the cow’s milk every few days. Now after about two weeks, she has been loving the cow’s milk and it might… Read more »

Project Vlogust: Week Four Highlights

Project Vlogust: Week Four Highlights

Family 2

Since there were a couple extra days at the end of August, I couldn’t really fit all the awesomeness of it in just one short video, so I decided to split it into two. Yay! Anyways, we had a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse party for BG3 to celebrate her first birthday. I had so much fun planning it and getting everything together. There weren’t a lot of people there, but it… Read more »

It Never Gets Any Easier

It Never Gets Any Easier

BG3, Parenting 0

I was a fool to think switching the baby to cow’s milk would go off without a hitch. A damn fool. You would think she’d welcome the taste of milk after the stinkfest that is Alimentum formula, but no, neither man, woman, nor beast can force this girl to drink her milk. I knew there would be a slight transition phase, but her sisters never had a problem with the… Read more »

Project Vlogust: Week Three Highlights

Family 0

This week was extra special for our family because it marked the birth of BG3. True, the party didn’t happen until the 23rd, which you’ll see in next week’s highlights, but her actual birthday was the 21st. We kept it pretty low-key and just had a family dinner at Olive Garden. Before that though, she needed to get some bloodwork done, routine for a 1-year-old. The girls also went exploring… Read more »

Still Feel Blessed

Still Feel Blessed

Family 0

It’s times like this, when I realize that I have no friends and my family sucks, that I feel truly blessed to have met and fallen in love with the man I call Husband and for the family that we created together. When I wonder wth is wrong with me, if I’m even worth loving/caring for, it helps to know that at least one person in this work loves me…. Read more »
