Getting Nervous!

 Hey everyone, Welcome back to my blog! for those of you who are new welcome and thanks or joining us!

So today's post as you can tell is about what has been going on the last week here in our household and to be honest with Halloween coming up, covid numbers rising in the next province over and with myself going back to school for my nursing course next week lets just say my nerves are non-existant right now! I am SOO nervous about everything happening in the next few weeks and well with 2020 going the way it has it has really made these things seem like tasks that are not well thought out but I am sticking with what I'm planning and hoping for the best. 

So if my blog, website, Instagram or youtube seem to be a little far and in between the last few days, this is why! So with that being said, What do you all do when you feel like you no longer can handle what the world is throwing your way? let me know in the comments!

Halloween Is coming!

 Hey everyone welcome or welcome back to my blog! Today I wanted to talk about something that has been very much up in the air the last few weeks and that is Halloween! 

For those of you who do not have kids you may be wondering if you should set something up for this year or if you are going to be taking part of it this year at all, now for those of us with kids we have a bigger question as to if we will be doing Halloween this year. 

Now here in my area we only have 4 cases for all of nova scotia so its pretty safe here and so with that being said we will be letting our children take part of the festivities this year as long as they follow the proper safety rules. Now I know in some places it is a hit or miss as some places are very much quarantined and with that if you have children I personally would recommend still decorating the house and getting the children costumes but maybe stick to just family (who are not at risk) just to give the kids something to look forward to where as this year has well kind of sucked! 

So this year in my house we may be doing things a little different where as it is on a weekend and my girls would like to do it together this year so I have agreed to let my youngest daughter go with her father and sister this year but it kind of sucks as I had gotten a costume this year to match hers but if going with her sister makes her happy then thats what we are doing but on the other hand my son will still be home so we are trying to decided if we are going to take him to his dads and let us figure out what we are doing this year if we do not take the children out or if he is going to stay home and we will take him out. (his dad is 6 hours away and has a baby on the way so Halloween may be a small thing for them this year)

so with that being said while we try and figure things out I have decided now that thanksgiving is over for us here in Canada, I am going to start getting the house ready for Halloween and get the kids into the October feeling. With that said I plan on doing a video for YouTube as a " Decorate with me" so be on the look out if your subscribed and for those of you who have not yet done so make sure you go check out my YouTube channel as I would love to have you join in as part of my YouTube

A Quiet Thanksgiving!

 Hey everyone, 

Thanks for tuning into my blog post today. So today is a little different where as here in Nova Scotia we are celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend. But this weekend is also the first weekend in a year that I have had no children in my house as this year they all went to their fathers houses. Its very odd having no noise in the house and if you watch my next YouTube video you will notice when im prepping for your meal that I used a big pot as im just so used to feeding more then just hubby and myself.

So with that being said, to all of you parents who have to co-parent and split up holidays, how do you deal with the quiet?  I usually always have at least one child home with me but this time around we decided to give it a try and let her stay for the weekend with her father (IT WAS WELL NEEDED) and now I just dont know what to do with myself! I have taken 2 days out of my weekend to clean up the house and meal prep and now there's nothing left to do.... I guess its true you wait so long to have time to yourself as parents and when you get it all you can think about are the kids.... so with that being said I am going to probably just sit around all night and maybe catch up on my Netflix show (The 100!) for those of you who have not yet seen it...go check it out, its very different and very interesting at the same time lol.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone, hope you all had an amazing weekend even those of you who are not yet celebrating it :)

It Took One Year!

 Hey everyone welcome back to my blog, for those of you who are new, Welcome! Make sure to check out my Instagram and YouTube if you have not already done so. On to todays post!

So its been a few days since my last post and I know things have been crazy here in my home with our fall clean up going threw and myself being sick and trying not to get my family sick things have been like a mad house the last few days but Im glad to say I finally got some work done around the house and its finally starting to feel like a home. Now I know some of you are going to ask why I chose to start settling where we are currently at even though I want to buy another house. And the answer is this... Next month I will be going into my nursing program and I dont want to over due myself looking into everything that comes with buying a house right now, All the extra things that are needed like having an inspector come out and lawyer appointments and all of that fun stuff so we have decided to stay where we are for right now and save up a bit more so that we have a larger budget to work with and then we will get our dream home.

So with that being said we have re-arranged our sunroom to use as an actual entry room and laundry space, I do have curtains that I have ordered ad are waiting to come in so I will show you a picture of now and then again once they come in, and same with the living room, our tv blew and we have ordered a new one but for now we have a temp for when the kids want to watch tv and also waiting for ok weather to paint my desk, that will be a post all on its own so the family room/my office is almost complete I have a set of curtains coming for the patio door and a rug as well as a few more pictures to go up with a mirror that I will be doing a remodel of so stay tuned for that fun project and see how it turns out.


But like I said we have been here for a year and its just now starting to feel like home. How long did it take you to have your current place the way you want it? are you still working on it, or waiting for bigger and better? let me know below!

Been A Busy Few Days

 Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog. For those of you who are just tuning in, Welcome to my blog glad you could join us.

So for today I thought I would give you kind of an update on what had been going on this week. I know I have posted 3 videos on YouTube and I have filmed a few more that are currently being updated and edited so stay tuned and watch for those. I know one of them is my Halloween haul for this year and one was requested as a shop with me so that one is in the middle of being edited so keep an eye out for that.

Soo, like I had mentioned this week has been a very busy, very hard week where as I have been really sick the last month and this week things just seemed to get worse so I went to the emergency department and they did my 3rd swab for covid and was again negative so they decided this time instead of puffers and steroids they were going to finally give me antibiotics so hopefully I will start to feel better soon.

So on top of being sick and getting everything on track for school and Halloween and all that fun stuff our fish had actually passed away as well so the kids were a little upset but they understand it was just his time so we are going today to get some new fish and a new tank because I told them they could each get one fish but because they cant be in the same tank we need to get another tank so that should be interesting. so with that being said I am going to end todays blog here. Don't forget to go check out my Instagram page for updates on our fish and well just in general and make sure you go check out my YouTube page and subscribe if you have not done so already so that you can stay up to date with all the uploads coming out this week,   I hope you all enjoy and have a wonderful weekend.

Starting Fresh For October!

 Hey everyone, Welcome back to my blog. For those of you who are new, Hello and Welcome!

So As today marks the first day of October, I have decided to give 2020 a break and start fresh!.... Any one with me? 

I know this whole year has been absolutely crazy but it is finally most favorite season and I just cant let 2020 wreck my whole year completely! I know there is still a pandemic going on in some places and I for one am lucky to live in a place where we have not really been hit hard by this yet ( Yes, I do believe we will get hit with a second wave) but who knows when that will be. 

So with that being said, I have bought 4 things.... I got a journal for my food tracking because well I need that if in going to seriously watch what I  eat for the nutritionist to tell me where I'm wrong, 2nd I got a manifestation journal...yes I believe in the law of attraction (If you do not that's perfectly ok!) 3rd I got a notebook for my affirmations....and gratitude journal...( again you don't need to do this) and 4th I got serious about my site, and my YouTube so I got a separate agenda/planner just to work around my social media!

So I am slowly getting thing in my personal life organized, but as mentioned in an upcoming YouTube video I am also cleaning out my house for our FALL CLEAN UP! so its the perfect time to start fresh...

Watch out for content later today throughout the site for October Clean up/Starting fresh with October.!
