Unique Home And Garden Decor

It’s stressful being a single mom. Not only that, I’m doing all of this on my own. I am raising a teen with Autism and have no help. But, I keep going. I only focus on what I can control, which is our own happiness. I love being a homeowner. We’ve been living in our own place for almost a year now. Over the last year, I’ve been decorating and making it ours. Looking for unique home and garden decor? We found the cutest garden gnomes and unique art prints!

We’ve been living here for almost a year and I have yet to add my own touch to our outdoor area. My balcony was being renovated for about 5 months! Now that I have a beautiful and updated balcony, I want to add chairs and a small table to sit and enjoy the weather!  Many of my neighbors store their barbecue, bird feeders, plants, flags, and other decorations. The garden gnomes I found are fun and add personality wherever you decide to put them!

Tips to Make your Vacation Travels Easier and Stress Free

Our house is truly blessed by family who have vacation homes for us to use each year. My cousin has a beach house and offers us a discounted rate for our summer vacations.

Planning the trip is always easy. Getting there, however, is always a pain in the butt. I usually have a toddler and small dog in tow and it is difficult traveling without pulling out my hair.

5 Reasons You Should Watch Moana

I was lucky enough to receive a copy of Moana. We have always been the family that waits until movies come out on cable or Netflix to watch. Our son has Autism. Going to a movie theater would not be as fun because we would be focused on watching him and keeping him entertained.

Open Season: Scared Silly

Beauty Brite Disclosure

When I received Open Season: Scared Silly, I was so thrilled! However, I could only recall watching one of the movies. I was scrolling through Netflix and discovered Open Season has at least 3 other movies. I played the first movie and was surprised to realize I never saw it! The first movie came out in 2006, the same year our son was born, so I was too busy being a new mom.

How To Have A Baby And Not Lose Your Sh*t

How To Have A Baby And Not Lose Your Shit by Kirsty Smith

Paperback: 170 pages
Publisher: Dark River (November 11, 2015)
Language: English

Beauty Brite Disclosure

If you’re wondering whether you are really ready to have a baby, you should grab a copy of How To Have A Baby And Not Lose Your Shit, by Kirsty Smith (published by Bennion Kearney). It’s funny, yes, but more importantly it sends the message that when it comes to having and raising kids, don’t sweat the small stuff. You don’t have to be the perfect parent, you don’t have to have the perfect child, heck you don’t even have to have the perfect life… the best way to be a good mom is to just roll with the punches and expect the unexpected. And above all, just remain as calm as possible; both you and your child will make it through and as long as you love him (or her) and have their best interest at heart everything will turn out okay in the end. The best approach to parenthood I can advise a new parent to take is to view it as comedic fodder for future recall, because, oh you will! You will recall it, the stories will be standard holiday time storytelling fare for years to come!
