Summer Fun at Universal Studios Hollywood

Last week, our family had the opportunity to visit Universal Studios Hollywood to experience some of their family-friendly fun attractions. We were given tickets to check out the summer time attractions but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

It had been YEARS since I’ve been to Universal Studios Hollywood and it was way different than I remembered. I honestly thought that my 5 year old wouldn’t have that much fun there because the rides seem more geared towards older kids and adults but there were plenty of things for us to do! We had such an fun time!!

From Stay-At-Home Mom to Slay-At-Home Mommy Blogger

Last week, I wrote a post about why I left my job as a teacher to become a stay-at-home mom. Well today I wanted to share with you how I became a “slay-at-home” mommy blogger. Ok, maybe not quite SLAYING as much as I want to but the other day one of my mommy blogger friends described me as “slaying” so I’m OWNING IT!

I wanted to answer some frequently asked questions about becoming a mommy blogger, things I’ve learned and how you can do it too if you want to! DISCLAIMER: IT’S NOT THAT EASY!!! What I mean by that is, it is time consuming! You know how you see all these mommy bloggers on Instagram with perfect looking houses and pictures? Well, it’s not something that happens with the snap of a finger. You might say, why all the staging? Well, I’ll go into that later too. View Post


5 Things I Learned at Mom 2.0 Summit 2018

Earlier this month, I was able to attend the Mom 2.0 Summit in Pasadena, California. It was a 3-day conference filled with so much inspiration, learning, and networking. It was also a time to meet online friends in REAL LIFE! I had the most amazing time away from my normal day-to-day routines to soak up as much as I could about the world of mommy blogging.

Why I’ll Get The Flu Shot This Year

This post is sponsored by Kaiser Permanente Orange County but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Despite being a teacher for 14 years, I only got the flu shot once. The one time that I did get the flu shot, I got really sick so I vowed to never get it again. Surprisingly, I didn’t get the flu while teaching because I practiced good hygiene and disinfected everything but I think I was pretty lucky.Why You should get the flu shot View Post


Four Ways to Find Joy in the Millennial Age

“Comparison is the thief of joy.” – Theodore Roosevelt

We’ve heard that quote numerous times yet we continue to compare ourselves to others. Why is that?

For me, when I compare my life to someone else’s life, it’s because I think they have it better than me or they have something that I want. Due to social media (Facebook & Instagram), I find myself comparing myself to others more often. Sometimes I feel like I’m missing out on something because I saw it on Instagram! It leads to greater dissatisfaction in my own life even though my life is pretty good. It’s better than just good, it’s amazing. I don’t say it’s amazing because everything is perfect but I know that I am very blessed. But I need to remind myself of this daily and look at what I do have instead of what I don’t have. So what’s a girl to do in order to have joy in her life? Here’s what helps me. View Post
