5 Fall activities for kids

The weather is getting colder, which means us moms can't use the outdoors to entertain our kids as much as we would like. When my kids are stuck inside,  they tend to get very grumpy.  I can't stand when they get grumpy and whiny so I try to make a game plan to avoid it. Here is a list of some fun fall activities that I found from other bloggers. 

1. Fall paper plate wreath: Mum in the Mad House posted this idea.  Click the picture to get instructions on how to do this fun craft!
My kids always love decorating,  so I think they will really love to make their own fall decor! I will do this one with my kids,  and maybe add some Halloween elements to ours.

2. Spooky Halloween trees: I found this idea on Pinterest.  The blog Buggy and Buddy was the one who posted it. Their picture will look you to the instructions on their site!
This activity looks so fun to me. I might actually try it for myself! I think my older child will really enjoy this activity. 

3. Leaf people fall crafts: Hands on as we grow is where I found this fun idea!
Find some colorful leaves,  go to the flat store for some eyeballs and make little leaf people! This could be a whole day's worth of entertainment!

4. Leaf Hunt: this idea came from This Little Home Of Mine. The picture is theirs. If you click on it,  it will take you to their blog!
This goes along with #3. Do the leaf hunt and an activity,  and save the leaves for the leaf people!

5. Magic Pumpkin: I found this idea on Playdough to Plato's blog. I also borrowed their picture.
Kids love candy,  and I love science so this is a good combination. I think it's fun to watch the colors spread out.

I hope this gives you at least a few ideas to entertain your kids when it gets chilly outside! Be sure to follow these fellow bloggers to take advantage of all their fun ideas!

How To Do Vegas Right For Your 21st Birthday

The 21st birthday is a big one to celebrate.  You're finally out of your teens,  you can legally drink,  and you're considered an adult (more so than an 18-year-old).  
If you're going to celebrate this great phase in life,  you need to do it up right!  Vegas is the place to celebrate.  

Being a responsible adult,  you need to find some good friends that can join you on your excursion to Las Vegas.  Once you have found the right people to join you,  you must start planning. 
Hotel: There are many hotel choices when staying in Vegas.  But you MUST stay on the strip if you plan on drinking.  It makes transportation and navigating so much easier. 

Trust me,  you don't want to have to pay a taxi ride from the outskirts,  to the strip, and back.  Save that money for something better! I highly suggest staying at Mandalay Bay , or Ceasars Palace. But, if you have specific bars and places you want to go,  find out what hotel is closest to the area you will mostly be in.  It ma…

My Favorite Finds of 2018

2018 is coming to a close. I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by.  2018 brought many fun things to my life.  For 2018 I made a goal to get out of my comfort zone,  to be a better parent, and to find more hobbies that interest me.  I did a pretty good job with all of these parts of my life. I started this blog which is really out of my comfort zone.  I've also been able to make a few new friends which are a miracle for me.   I worked on how I talk to my kids.  Apologizing to them more often when I do something wrong,  and making sure I tell them I love them as often as I can.  And as for the new hobbies, I've started a few.  I count my blog as a hobby since it's not really a money maker right now,  and I love writing for it.  
I've found a bunch of things that have improved my life in some way or another and I want to share them with you.  Maybe you might find something new you haven't tried or something that can improve your life in 2019!

How to Find Success in Life

Success is something everyone wants, but we might define it differently. A lot of people associate success with having lots of money or having a fancy job title. 
I think success can be a lot of different things. You can have success in relationships,  or creating that family you always wanted,  maybe it's being a successful athlete,  or getting that master or doctorates degree you have been working so hard to get. I think success can be anything you want that involves you to work hard to get. 
There are some things you can do to help you live the successful life you want.

Emotional Intelligence is something that is important to work on regardless of where you are in your life. To have or improve on emotional intelligence, you need to work on understanding both your emotions and other people's emotions.
