Over the past few years, my husband and I have been busting our booties in order to purchase our first home. We FINALLY accomplished that in the Summer of 2018. It wasn’t an easy task, but we knew what we had to do and we did it. Thinking of buying your first home isn’t a decision that should be taken lightly. While the dream at the end of the road is to have a roof over your head and to eventually become more financially stable, there’s a long ways until you actually get there. Have you ever taken the time to figure out exactly what you need to do to get the ball on the road? To help you out, here’s a guide on how to begin buying your first home.
I you’re like most coffee lovers and myself, you can’t start your day without a delicious cup of your favorite coffee blend. I literally wake up in the morning, use the restroom, and get my coffee… literally in that order. My family is used to it and if I deviate from that routine, there are problems! Lately though, I started to think about what to do to reuse and recycle used coffee grounds or leftover cups of cold coffee. Who am I kidding, I rarely have leftover cups of coffee, but those grounds, yeah, they always go into the garbage can, wonder if there is something I could do with them.
The decision to start homeschooling your children isn’t always a difficult one, but how you homeschool can be. There can be many competing voices arguing for and against, and you might not even be certain at first that it is quite the right thing to do, despite knowing the benefits of it. If you are just starting out in homeschooling your children, you will probably find that you could benefit from understanding more about it, and that is what we are going to look at today. Specifically, we are going to discuss some of the simple and effective ways in which you should be able to make much more of homeschooling, so that you can absolutely be certain you are doing the right thing.
Over the past several years I’ve inherited so many decorations, that when we moved into our new home in July of 2018, all of the decorations took over the entire second floor of our barn. When it was time to bring in the decorations for the different holidays, it took my husband and our youngest son at least 10 trips (with a dolly full of at least 3 totes) to bring everything in. As the holidays have been coming around, I’ve been going through; organizing and thinning the decorations at least a little bit. Having so many decorations that I’ve inherited or had personally bought over the years has taught me a few things.
The beginning of the year, we all have changes we want to start the year off with. Some it’s losing weight, others they want to become a better person mentally & emotionally, others may quit smoking or even wanting to start a home business. I’ve talked about some of my favorite tips here if you haven’t yet taken the plunge. A home business is a good way of boosting your income, whether it’s something you take on full-time to replace your current career, or if it’s merely a side-hustle in your spare time. If you have already started your own home business, or if you are still at the planning stage, you might want to know how to grow your business. No matter how small your operation is, there are still ways to increase your profits and expand what you do.
I remember when my sons were younger and they weren’t feeling well. It was one of the worse feelings in the world. If your child is ill it can be exhausting taking care of them. They often want all your attention, as that is a comfort to them. When they are very young or just toddling, they cannot always tell you exactly what is wrong, and that can make it even harder to know you are doing the right thing. Getting through the day with a sick child is not an easy task, some times you want to throw in the towel, but don’t, because it either has throw up on it or spilled soup. Seriously though, it’s rough, but here are a few tips that will help get through the day.
So Christmas is done and you know what that means – you’ll have to face your New Year’s resolutions. Because come January 1st, you will be held responsible, and not following through on your new goals is one of the worst feelings there is. Instead of trying to tackle something borderline impossible or create a new habit that you simply can’t keep, be sure to start small. What’s more, an excellent way to actually follow through is to combine your personal goals with your living environment. That way, you can rejuvenate your home and stick to your resolutions at the same time. Here are the five easy-to-keep New Year’s resolutions for your home.
I dabble a little in some craftiness and a little DIY. Growing up I kinda had no choice with a mom who had the knack for putting together two or three things that you would never think to put together and made them work. If you’ve ever watched any of my live videos over on my Facebook page, you’ll see a few of the videos that I have done in the past and at least one I did a lil’ crafting live. There is not a single type of craft that is not mixed with at least something else. All crafts, no matter what have creativity, personality, and a story. For that, all crafts (even if it’s not your “thing” or style) need to be praised and shared.
My family consists of gamers, techies or geeks. And I LOVE IT! That’s why this Holiday Gift Guide for Techy & Gamers is probably my favorite. My 13yr old is obsessed with FortNite and my Oldest loves the racing games like Grand Theft Auto 5 or Forza. My husband loves Final Fantasy Games (he pretty much loves all of them) and my obsession with The Elder Scrolls Series or Assassin’s Creed. Gaming aside, I love tech. ALL things tech! If I could have everything, I would. I’d probably have all of the latest computers, tablets, cell phones, smart devices, etc. My husband always rolls his eyes whenever I talk about swapping out the old out dated thermostats for new smart thermostats.
Okay Ladies, it’s that time of year to buy our guys something for Christmas. But what do we buy the guy who has just about everything or nothing or worse, doesn’t give us any hints? EVERYTHING! Okay, not really, unless you have those deep pocketbooks that you can. But Seriously, Christmas tends to be another one of those holidays like Valentine’s Day or Sweetest Day (if you live in the Ohio region) that women tend to get spoiled. I tend to spoil my husband because he busts his cute lil’ tushy at work so I can focus on my blog and homeschooling our son. However, I know a lot of guys are next to impossible to buy for. So I have compiled a few great items to help us ladies out.
