Changes.

There have been many changes since the new year. Let's start with the fact that the husband and I decided to transition E.K. from his crib to a toddler bed. E.K. is 17 months old and would be considered "too young" for a toddler bed by many judgmental moms and self proclaimed expert standards, lol.…

Happy New Year | 2018

Where does the time go? It's already 2018! I don't believe in making "resolutions", but I do attempt to set some goals at the beginning of each year to achieve: Tithe regularly. I struggle with this... a lot. So this year I plan to do much better tithing the full 10%. Pay down debt by…

And so it begins…

... the need to start setting goals for the upcoming new year. ... the need to rework my budget for January. ... the need to figure out my next career move. ... the need to update this blog more frequently as my outlet. ... the need to stop allowing my anxiety to creep in every…

November Vibes

Where has the year gone? I feel like I say this every year around this time. E.K. and I just got home from the mall (our weekend routine) and he's finally napping peacefully in his crib. I decided to use this time wisely and update my blog. With Thanksgiving around the corner, the stores have…

Terrible 1’s?

I have heard the phrase "Terrible 2's will have you going crazy", but what about the terrible 1's???? It's almost as if my son has decided to challenge EVERYTHING we say, do, or have tried to teach him. He has recently began the tantrum thing.... smh... and when we are out in public and he…

Weekend Recap

Wine Down | Ramblings

The workday felt so long today. It seemed as though everyone needed something or wanted to complain about something. Most would think that the fact that I work from home full-time, I wouldn't have to deal with some of the idiocies most people deal with in an office environment. That would be a false assumption.…

What’s for Dinner tonight?

In an effort to be more budget focused, I've been trying my hand at meal planning. I found a recipe on Pinterest that looked easy, healthy, and yummy so I figured I'd give it a try... The recipe called for italian sausage, bell peppers, onions, and a mix of vegetables. On a scale of 1…

WIMDB for Travel?

What's in my diaper bag for travel via airplane? The husband, E.K., and I took a trip to Chicago for a family function a week or so ago. It was the very first time we traveled with E.K. and his first time on a airplane. E.K. just turned 9 months old, so I was concerned…
