Taking care of a newborn is no joke, so to make things a bit easier for you busy moms who need a little extra time to get stuff done, here are a few items that have really helped me get going with my busy life. If you aren’t careful, getting supplies for baby can get very quickly out of hand. From the baby swing, to the diaper changer, to the activity pad, diapers, baby bath - the list goes on. Before you know it your house looks more like a baby day care center and less like a home.
The first few days of bringing home baby are the toughest. You’re exhausted from birth, possibly breastfeeding, and of course, lacking sleep. That’s why in the days leading up to your due date, it’s essential to plan ahead and get yourself prepared mentally and physically for the precious new addition to the family.
Are you continually believing untruths/lies about yourself? Gain awareness and stop giving into your detrimental thoughts about yourself. Have confidence in who you are and discover your self-worth through enlightenment to the lies you believe.
It's no news that many women are insecure. We have enough thrown at us daily via social media telling us just how much we fall short of the ever-changing new "normal." Insecurity has many names and many masks.
These resources aren't necessarily "Pregnancy" workouts, so I modified when necessary. I found it harder to find specific pregnancy workouts that actually challenged me. This way, depending on how you feel, or how fit you were before you worked out, you can modify to your own desire.
Do you ever get the feeling that your marriage is slipping away from you? Like all of the sudden, you realize your once dedicated and happy relationship somehow took a turn for the worse?
It can feel very discouraging when you don't know your own value or self-worth. Life suddenly becomes a burden, and in all reality, you aren't quite sure how you got there or why. Once you realize your own worth, it will not only allow you to stop looking inward and being self-focused, it will free your mind to accomplish more than you ever thought possible.
t's no question that we all go through difficult times. It's hard to keep yourself going, let alone try and encourage your spouse who is also going through a season of struggle. So, how can we keep going, as well as support the person we love through their difficult time? It's not easy.
When I think of what men in general want, I'm pretty sure I can break it down into two simple categories. The thing is, those two categories each have a million subcategories.
It's not wrong to seek happiness or to desire happiness for ourselves or our kids. But it could possibly be misguiding for them, if when we expect it to come our way and it doesn't, our worlds falls apart.
Hey there, you probably don't know who I am because I'm a newbie. I wanted to start a blogging diary as to give you new bloggers a little insight into where I'm at, what I've done, what my questions are, and the strategies I've used.
Trust is one of, if not the most important aspects of any relationship. Unfortunately, it's the hardest to establish, especially if that trust has been broken.
It's mostly women who grow steadily unfulfilled when they sense something becoming redundant. I couldn't quite put my finger on why that is until I realized something. Women love to be pursued.
When I first thought of writing this post, I was in the process of organizing my life. Working from home has its disadvantages, especially because I tend to favor the creative side of myself, over the buckling down and getting shit done side.
Dieting is one of the surest ways the food industry continues to try and convince us of eating things we shouldn't. They claim "healthy, low-carb, ketogenic, gluten-free, fat-free, less sugar, vegan," and the list goes on.
What child doesn't want to hear that they are a hero or a princess and see it for themselves on the written pages.
One of my favorite places to shop all things decor indoor and outdoor is the all amazing platform, Houzz. It's is affordable, stylish, reliable, and every homeowner's dream to a better life.
It's important to identify what you're trying to control in your life and learn how to work through it; otherwise, those problems will begin to control you.
Mothers day is just around the corner! Find that special lady who has always been there for you the gift she deserves.
I know how hard it can be to figure out a gift for the woman who has always been there for us. That's why I compiled a list of unique ideas that might give you some inspiration. We all have mothers, but we all don't have the same mother. What one woman likes, may be another's nightmare. Whether you're reading this because you're a husband looking to buy your wife a mothers day gift, someone looking for their own mother, or a mother sending this link to your husband as a hint, I hope this list will give you some good ideas or at least some direction.
I would say, my mom would fall into the category of the homemaker, but she always knew how to take care of herself on the beauty side of things. I still get asked to this day if she is my sister. Yeah, she looks good for her age. She was always such a good example of what it means to put your life before your kids, but also look classy doing so. I can learn a lot from her, and so when it comes to picking her out a gift, it has to be special, unique, and fitting to her style and personality. I would love to hear your ideas!
Last year I got her this necklace, which she absolutely loved. I'm pretty sure I got the idea from someone else's list of ideas, so I thought I would share the love. Maybe your mom will like it just as much as mine did.

This machine has literally changed my life after having kids. Every morning, I need my coffee in order to function. How great is pushing a button and getting a better than Starbucks coffee in no time.

I’m not sure where I first heard about this wonderful sugar substitute, but I do remember seeing it at health food store one day and thought the name of it looked familiar.
