Summer Family Fun Ideas: Texas Discovery Gardens

5/16/187:23 PM

Summer is fast approaching, and the kids will soon be out of school and then comes 3 months of activities and trying to keep the kids busy. Simi is now at that age where she literally can't seat still for more than a hour, and so I am having to plan out our summer and fill it up with activities. One of the reason I love living in Dallas, is the abundant amount of family friendly fun. We recently got to visit the Texas Discovery Garden, it was such a beautiful location and I would definitely advice to add this to the top of your summer family fun.

Tips for a healthy marriage after kids

5/7/1812:02 AM

My Husband and I didn't build our family in the "traditional" sense of getting married then having kids. We got into our marriage already having a 3years old, so adjusting to a new marriage and learning what works for each other was a lot different. Marriage is hard like I spoke about in my last marriage blog post, but its even harder when you have kids involved and learning to take time for each other and communicate with each out about our marriage at times was a bit difficult.
One of the main thing we have had to remember every time is our relationship and love for each other came first and we have to put that as priority, especially as parents to young kids we have to be sure that we love each other and respect each other because that's what our children see and that is how they will learn to associate love, and marriage.

Mother's Day Gift Ideas from a mom

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and I have always thought shopping  for  mother’s day is interesting what could you possibly get the most important woman in your life. As I have gotten to be on the other side of it, I have a very different perspective of what Mother’s Day means as well as the types of gifts I think all moms deserve. I think Mother’s Day is one extra day to show our mom’s just how much they mean to us, and I think our gifts should reflect  just that.

Tips for Moms' who feel they are always missing out

Are there any moms out there that feel like you are constantly missing out on all the fun? motherhood FOMO (fear of missing out) can be such a sucky thing especially when all your close friends are single women with no kids and their priorities are way off from yours. The first couple years after I had Simi I struggled coming to terms with the fact that my life was going to change so much, and I would be missing out on all the single girl turn up. To be honest one of the reasons I struggled to adjust was because of that, mentally I just wasn’t ready to be a mom and I couldn’t see myself giving up on all my “luxuries” I was used to. A few things that I have learnt as I have gotten more mentally mature as a mother is:

Being a wife is harder than being a mom.......

4/12/189:45 AM

I remember having a conversation with a girlfriend of mine a month or so before I got married, and she asked me which I thought would be harder being a mom or being a wife? At the time I thought being a mom would be harder because, well being a mom is hard and every day brings a new challenge but after being married now and experiencing the reality of marriage, I would like to change my answer and say being a wife is definitely harder than being a mom lol.

I remember when I decided to take my blog a little more seriously and be dedicated to it. To be honest, I started this blog just because I wanted to have a space to share my new life in Dallas and balancing my new role of wife with being a mother. I wasn't too sure what I would be sharing on the blog, but I knew it would be a pretty personal blog.

Having girls is one of the most exciting things ever, getting to dress them up in the most beautiful colors and I don't care what any one says but shopping for girls clothing is way more fun. As Simi is getting older, she is starting to get her own fashion sense and let me just tell you she is quite the fashionista, maybe even more fashionable than her mama. As she getting more opinionated in her clothing, and getting to pick out her own outfits I am having to do better about shopping for her. As the weather is changing and warmer weather days are approaching we are starting to change out her wardrobe and shop for spring/summer style clothing. So I thought I would share a few of my fave stores to get cute and affordable fashionable toddler pieces.
