Celebrate Valentine's Day as a Family

Valentine's day is always seen as a couples holiday, celebrating with the one you love in some romantic way.
Now that I have kids, I like to make all holidays special as a family.  I liked Valentine's day as a couple but I think spending that day with my kids makes it so much better!
 It shows my kids that we need to show love to everyone,  not just our partner. 

Special Valentine
Nothing makes a kid feel more special than a special treat or toy on Valentine's day.  My kids are candy obsessed so I have to get them a little candy that they can eat that day.  
If I'm really motivated, I'll make chocolate covered strawberries with them that morning and we will have them after dinner.

Valentine's Craft
Buying Valentine's are fun,  but I have found that making them by hand u.s so much better. My kids love to cut out paper hearts and draw pictures on them.  It makes it more meaningful when they give a valentine to someones like their sibling or parent. 

If you're a stay at home mom like I am,  then you have some time to kill,  and I love to find a special movie to watch with the kids.  
Here are some fun little kid movies to watch this Valentine's Day 

Lady and the Tramp
Beauty and the Beast
Gnomeo and Juliet 
Be my Valentine,  Charlie Brown

I'm a big believer in eating out whenever possible.  So I like to hit up our local Papa Murphys for their heart-shaped pizza. My kids think it's fun and I don't have to make dinner.  Win-win.
Pst.. don't forget the chocolate covered strawberries for dessert!

You don't have to always make Valentine's just about you and your partner. I think if you have kids,  show them you love them by spending a fun day with them as well. Save the romance for your anniversary! 


  1. Valentine day month is coming ahead. All the couples shall be planning for this day. But If we celebrate as a family that is better. I think you are right that day we can show our love for our kids. For more interesting facts visit nexter.

  2. February month is one of the romantic month of the whole year. To make it more wonderful always spend time with your family because quality time is when you spend it with your loved ones.

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…

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…

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!
