Mother's Day Recap 2016

Happy Belated Mother's Day to all the Moms!

I hope you had a wonderful day of being praised, pampered and pretty!

My Mother's Day was absolutely fantastic!

My Mother's Day weekend started off with a card from my mom and a Chick Fil la Gift card inside! I can't to use it as I LOVE that place!

My hubby planned everything and did a great showing showing me how much he and the kids truly love and appreciate everything I do for them.

My husband arranged for our kids to visit their grandparents for the day on Saturday so we could have a date!

We first went to Shake Shack and I was really excited to visit as I've always wanted to try it here. The food was so good! Just yummy! 

He then took me to the mall and let me loose....LOL

I was able to get some makeup, dresses, purses and sweet desserts!

The next day, Sunday, after church we went to dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, California Kitchen Pizza or CPK for short. The restaurant gave the kids a picture frame to decorate and give to me as a gift, which was super sweet!

I then ended my day by getting into bed early and just relaxing! 

Below are a few pictures I wanted to share with you.

How was your Mother's Day?????

New Beginnings!!!!

A year???????????????????????

No, it can't be.

Really..............a whole, entire year just that quick???

Time sure does go by in a blink of an eye!

I'm making my long awaited return to the blogging world. And I'm really excited about it!

I have always loved blogging and interacting through social media since I started this blog in 2008!!

Why the long hiatus, you ask? The answer is simple...LIFE!

Yep...L-I-F-E. It just has a way of demanding all your time and attention! Hehehehe

This past year, I have been learning to manage my time and schedules a whole lot better. I realized that I just dont have to exist through this thing called life....but rather LIVE! And that's what I'm doing...LIVING!

Living in the moment. Living in my passions. Living for my family. Living for God!

As a result, this blog will have some new elements added!

First, I love saving money! Anyone who know me, knows that! I love a good deal, a bargain, a discount....whatever name you have for it...I love it!!

This blog will focus more on how to save money in different areas in my life. Not just groceries and coupons...but vacations, everyday expenses, Disney trips, and so on and so forth!

I'll also be making videos via my YouTube channel where I will share different tips and tricks in detail to help you keep as much cash in your pocket as possible!

Furthermore, I'll be sharing snippets of my family, my faith and different recipes/cooking tips as well.

There will be giveaways, fun polls and vlogs to keep things exciting while you are here!

And with that......let's get back to business!!

I knew this would happen

Getting sick over the Christmas break...

....and its not just me either....

My baby, 2 and 6 year old are all fighting colds/coughs and everything in between.

I dont think I felt like this in a long time; which is odd because I usually get over sicknesses rather quickly.

This all started when I went to pick up my daughter from school on the last day before winter break.  When she started to talk about her throat hurting and soon after a fever came, i already knew this "vacation" was going to be different then I had hoped.

What makes things even worse is that my 2 year old wants to lay up on everyone and he doesnt know how to cover his mouth when he coughs or sneezes....and we dont want anymore germs.

I cant give my baby or 2 year any meds because they are too young and that mean I just have to let this cold take it's natural coarse; which means it will be some long days and nights around here for a while.

Part of me thinks maybe I should have let them get the flu vaccine that was offered at their doctor's office....well you live and you learn.

I had so many plans for this Christmas break.......

.......Zoo, Movies, Having a few dinners out, special projects around the house.....but nope.

 It's been laying around, taking meds, keeping kids washed/cleaned, changing bed sheets (to aviod sleeping in germs), and drinking tons of hot tea and water.

I got my fever, 102.4, Christmas Eve!  I was able to get it lowered by soaking towels in egg white and putting them on my feet and then socks.  It worked like a charmed but I was still feeling kinda crappy...straight through until now.

The good thing is that my husband has been off from work so he's here to help out.  Im not sure how I would be able to do this with him working or more importantly..traveling.

I seriously dont want him to get sick so I have been having him take some meds just in case.  He has a more sentitive stomach and any regular cold would cause server damage to him.

Currently, I'm just waiting for all of us to get better and move on.  With Christmas break over in 4 days it'll be back to regular life for us and I would like to be my normal self when that happen.

Merry Christmas & More....

Hello All, Wow, where has all the time gone?? Feburary?? Really....geez..

Well, first and foremost Merry Christmas to everyone of you.
 May the true spirt of Christmas influence our lives throughout the year!!

 Now for some updates.... First, I had my 3rd child.... a son, named Nicholas Bernard...
This was my 3rd c-section and I have to tell you...the surgery went fantastic...the recovery, well.....I am alive and
 It was tough! Hard to walk and when I came home, I had a 2 year old and a 6 year old waiting to get my full attention. It was a tough start but we survived and now Nick, as we call him, is almost 3 months old and truly a joy!!

My husband got a new job as well and he is very happy where he works now. The last job nearly killed him because it was so stressful. His boss was a nightmare and a lair. But with a LOT of prayer, the Lord opened a door and made a way.

 I also traded in my Honda Pilot for a Honda Odyssey. Yes, I NEVER though I would be caught in a mini-van, but now I'm driving one and to be honest enjoying it. The vans nowadays are kinda cool.

On a personal note, I am still trying to deal with worrying and anxiety. I tell you, I keep thinking something is wrong with me. I go to the doctor and im fine.  Tests, Tests, Test...all clear.  Then I realize its all in my mind, and if I dont get myself under control...Im going to go insane and be committed to a mental hospital.  Relying on Jesus to heal my mind.

 My daughter, Isabelle, is enjoying her school and I'm telling you, I am too. They are Very nice people and I could see her staying there until 8th grade.

Soon, we are going to start potty training our 2 year old son and I have to tell ya, Im kinda nervous. Ive been told boys are harder than girls. Guess I better stock up on pull-ups and wipes. He already takes his diaper off whenever he is wet or has poop.  Im sure thats a sign that he needs to start heading to the toilet.

...........Well, thats a nut shell.
 Its good to be back and in action again.

 I still can't believe its Christmas Eve. I feel like I just was at the  Soon enough, it'll be summer again...and I'll be wishing for Christmas

 On that note, Im gonna enjoy this snow fall we are getting and spend some special time with my family.

 Again, Merry Christmas to you all & God Bless
