Random Facts About Me!

To continue my blog challenge of a post a day every day in October,  I have decided to do a part of random facts about me! Because why not tell the whole internet world about me?

My name ( Serena) means mermaid in Spanish ( or at least that's what they told me growing up) 

I never finished college,  but if I did,  I would have tried to get a degree in Psychology.

I don't like to be like everyone else.

If I could move out of state,  I would move to Port Angeles, Washington. Never been there, it just looks like a beautiful place I could enjoy living. 

Right now my hair is pink. I hope to dye it Green soon. Making my way through the rainbow with hair colors. 

Growing up,  I wanted to be a National Geographic Photographer. 

I moved out with my high school sweetheart for two weeks when I was 18.  my parents thought I was moving in with some girls. It only lasted two weeks because we broke up. And my parents still don't know I lived with a guy.

I am the youngest of 9 siblings. But I don't share the same dad so technically I'm an only child between my two parents. 

4 of those 9 siblings are step-siblings. 

My older brother died of alcoholism when he was 25.  I've officially outlived him by a year. 

I met my best friend Kelsey on their first day of kindergarten. We don't hang out anymore,  but we are facebook friends.. if that counts as still being friends. 

I met my husband on

I have to be early to everything. My husband is always late. I go crazy inside when I'm late.

It's almost impossible for me to say "I'm sorry" to anyone I love and care about,  but I say "I'm sorry" constantly to every stranger I come across.

My favorite place is Lake Powell in Utah/ Arizona. It's the only place I'm not stressed out. 

I have an overbite that can never be fully fixed.  When I smile I have a gap Tuesday I can stick my tongue out of.

I love sports.  I used to play soccer, softball,  a little volleyball, basketball, on a swim team, and cheer drill. Unfortunately, I don't play sports much as an adult. 

I go through an emotional crisis about every other year.  Feeling like I haven't compared much,  or am not doing enough with my life. My life is still exactly the same and I have no way of changing it to stop my frequent emotional crisis. 

I'm always the first to say "I love you" in a relationship. 

I am always extremely late on trends or popular things. I didn't start the walking dead until season 3, I didn't hear Gangnam style until it was out for a year, and I just tried my first High fitness class today! (Oct. 12 2018).

I gag if I think about eating yogurt while I'm eating it. I don't do well with weird textures. 

I took guitar lessons for 3 years and never played in front of anyone except my guitar teacher.. and I even made her play with me so she couldn't just focus on my playing. 

Bell from Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney princess. 

I have always wanted to flip a house. But I'm too scared to try.

As a kid,  I was fluent in Spanish.  I don't remember a single word anymore.

I'm only doing this silly "random facts about me" because all other bloggers do it. Lame right?

Hope you learned something interesting about me today! Let me know a little about you!

How I saved hundreds of dollars for Christmas.

Christmas is an expensive time of year for most.  For my family,  we set a strict budget for Christmas and try not to go over.  This year though is the first year I came out under budget!  We set a $900 budget for all Christmas gift purchases. Since I don't work and my husband has had a kind of crappy sales year, we needed to have a strict budget to not overextend ourselves. 
For a few years, I've been using some money making apps to earn a little extra cash for Christmas and birthday gifts. This year it's really paid off!  I was able to use $150 from these apps to put toward Christmas! Using rewards from stores has saved me a good chunk of cash as well!
Want to know exactly how I saved so much money?
Kohls: I love taking advantage of Kohl's because they have great deals,  and they give you kohls cash for purchases you make.  This year I did some shopping at Kohl's and ended up with $55 in Kohl's cash. So I was able to use that toward a few gifts for my extend…

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. 

1. Have a great emotional intelligence. 
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.
 When your able to identify how your feeling, you are able to control them better. It will help you to be able to step back and look at…
