There's 80-something days left in this year. 2018 has been good to us, and I'm very excited about things that are coming in the early part of 2019, but thinking like that has already caused me to start slacking off here in the last quarter of this year. Have you had this problem?
"Why do you continue to workout if you aren't seeing any physical progress?"
I've been asking myself this particular question for the last 6 months. Why do I keep making myself workout 5-6 days a week if I'm not seeing any results? Why bother? I've debated internally and with my husband and some close friends. Why should I continue?
I was talking with a dear friend of mine, writer and creator of TinyHumanNewbie.com (go check her out!) and she made me realize that I haven't shared my birth story with Connor on the blog. At first, I thought that was insane, but the more I searched through old posts, the more I realized that it made sense. When I started this blog, he was nearly a year old. I was so focused on the here and now that I didn't even think to share the story of his birth.
These days, birthdays and holidays are all about “what you got” and spending an obscene amount of money to make sure the birthday person feels loved. Somehow, we’ve evolved into a society that associates money with love: the more you spend, the more you must love them. I wholeheartedly disagree. Instead, we’ve opted for spending less money and focusing more on the quality of our things and our time together.
With that in mind, I want to share some of our favorite fun traditions to ensure that the birthday person feels extra important on their special day, without breaking the bank or going overboard on anything.
I'm excited to share my first ever guest post with y'all this week!! This post is coming to you from Maria creator of HobbyJr.org. Maria is an avid quilter and creator who loves sharing her passion for crafting with people of all ages.
Traveling with toddlers to preschool ages kids is so much easier than attempting to travel with a baby. Even if it's two preschoolers vs one baby, I'd still prefer the preschoolers.
Raising kids is not for the faint of heart. Raising adventurous kids is definitely not a task to take lightly. This post is written from the perspective of a mom of boys. Some of these things can be transferred to cover raising girls, but some are specifically boy. You'll see what I mean.
I recently learned that I am shockingly cheap. We had a water treatment/filter sales guy come by the house the other day to give us a fancy presentation and try to sell us his filtration system. In exchange for listening to him talk, we were going to get a $20 Home Depot gift card. With all the house projects we have going on, we could happily use that money, so we agreed to have him come, knowing we weren't going to buy his system.
I did it! 3 months wearing only the same 33 items. It was definitely a learning experience but I'm excited to share what I learned with you.
I bake when I'm anxious, stressed, in a crappy mood, in a good mood, or just in a baking mood. I enjoy baking, but I try to reign that shit in because I tend to eat all of whatever I baked and that's counterproductive to my fitness and healthy lifestyle journey.
