[Lifestyle] — What Have I been Up To Lately? • October 2016


What has been up with me lately? I did take a month off from blogging which I am super behind. But that’s okay I needed my break from my blog anyways. Even though I took a month off from updating my blog – I still kept myself busy with different projects around the house (I’ll update the different projects I worked on in different blog posts).

Since it’s almost the end of October already – I’ve been thinking about what to stock up for the winter season: meat, canned goods, pastas, and etc… I heard it’s going to be a very very very cold winter and I don’t want to drag two kids out for grocery runs every week. Especially carrying the heavy stuff too. That’s what I’ve been doing – buying the things we can buy now for the winter to avoid lots of trips out.


As always – I did Christmas shopping early this year and is 80% done. I’m not a fan of crowded malls and long line ups! Totally not my thing. If I could shop it now – why not right? Plus I don’t want to come home after my vacation to deal with Christmas shopping and wrapping. I just want to get it over with and done with before November hits.

These two months we’ve been doing some home improvement – as in – upgrading some of our furniture. I’ll do another separate post on it. We’ve wanted to upgrade some of our furniture for awhile now – it all comes down to the kids. Some we could upgrade and some we couldn’t do it till the kids are older – so they won’t ruin it.

I did take some ‘Me Time’ away from the kids for a refreshment. Even one hour a day is amazing and we all need it. I love my kids to death but sometimes I just need to be away from them to refresh myself and get myself back together. Fell off the band wagon of my diet after a week. In a week I did lose about 6 pounds – which is not too bad right? I have to get back into this wagon to lose the rest of the weight – 24 pounds to go!

We’ll be going to our winter vacation mid-November. A much needed vacation for hubby and I. We need to see palm trees, sunshine, beach, sand, and paradise – now that’s a vacation! I can’t wait to lounge on beach chairs and watch our kids play in water. Munchkin#2 will be over 4.5 months and we had the okay from his doctor to go. There’s gonna be quite a lot to pack but we can’t wait to experience it with both our boys.

I haven’t talked much about my stepmoms ALS journey. I guess I’ve came to accept it and not talk about it. It’s a very very sad disease without a cure and I pray that there will be a cure very soon to help everyone with this disease. Her situation looks stable right now but she is paralyzed. What can a paralyze person do? Why couldn’t she be stabilize when she could still walk and move her hands? Anyways – I help them buy groceries every week or two weeks. I try my best to visit once a week or if my schedule don’t work – every other week. I don’t know what else to update about her situation – my heart is numb about it. So that’s it.

As for my in-laws – our relationship has gotten better and hope it stays that way. I’m not hard to get along with – I just don’t like being annoyed. We see them about once a week if time permits.

I realize that I don’t socialize with a lot of people these days – the only people I socialize is mommies with kids. I know right – my priorities are so different than 5 years ago. But I do like it this way. When time is so limited – I can’t deal with everyone. My priorities has shifted and my priorities is my kids and husband.

As for blogging goes – I miss blogging. I won’t force myself into blogging if I don’t want to. Its all about if I feel like it or not. I love documenting my life and have a journal to read back. Especially for my kids. My family is my everything!

That’s it for this Life Update – life will only get busier from here when November hits. As long as I’m organize with my time – I won’t be stressing out. Stay tune for more daily updates – this blog is updated regularly. Thanks for dropping by & see you soon!

Have a FABULOUS day!!!




[Lifestyle] — 2 Month Postpartum

g0038 g0039

Two month postpartum! As much as I don’t want to be stressing out with my weight – I am a little. Well – a lot? My stomach is only near flat when I wake up in the morning. When I start inserting food in – it expands. #FIRSTWORLDPROBLEM – I always had this problem before too. This will really be a work in progress soon. I’m starting my morning breakfast with yogurt, chia seeds, cheerios, and a little honey + a coffee with skim milk and no sugar. A healthy breakfast is needed. I’ll be starting my cardio & stretches soon too when Munchkin#1 is in school.

As for my fitness plan, I’m not going to be too strict on myself because I know once I set such high goals – I’ll fail faster. I need to slowly adjust into it.

Another thing this month is ‘eye allergy’ – these clear mucus/protein or whatever you call it was in my eyes. I never had a problem with it till now. I didn’t know what it was at first – I thought it could be infection or just tired eyes but after a week – I had enough. I went to see a optometrist and she told me its eye allergy. How the heck did I get eye allergy right? She said it could be hormones, postpartum, after giving birth, age, air, or anything… There wasn’t much of an explanation. I got a bottle of allergen drops and so far – it’s been pretty good. Still a little bit of clear stuff in my eyes once in awhile but a lot better than before.

g0040 g0041

I slow down on my liquids since the first month of breastfeeding. It gets tiring drinking 10+ cups of liquids a day. I do try my best. Now I drink around 7-10 cups a day – depending if I’m home or not. When I am out – I usually drink less. I started drinking lemon water with no sugar added – hopefully that helps with my weight loss. Red date soup I drink occasionally.

As for breastfeeding – I did have a milk duct a few weeks ago – forgot which week. It was a pain in the a$$! But I google search and feeding your baby upside down does work. Lay your baby flat on the bed and you go on top of him. Just sort of like plank position – except with your knees. Get it? hahaha.

Had my 6 weeks postpartum check up – uterus is back to normal and my scar looks alright. Nothing really – did a pap test and talked about my birth control options. I’m leaning towards going back to the Mirena ring. I had no problems with it really except my hormones (I think). I did say I didn’t want to go back on it last year but I really didn’t have much problem with it for the past 4 years.

As for hair growth – my hair is growing so fast! The length is near my bum now! As for hair loss – not much. I wash my hair 2 times a week now and it shouldn’t grow too much right? Reason for washing my hair less than before is because of my hair drying up & I’m barely out of the house. My hair is constantly up in a bun when I am at home.

That’s really all the updates of my two month postpartum – time is ticking and my baby is growing up so quickly. I try to enjoy the time I have with him now while he is little. As for balancing time with my boys is so hard! One on one time is even more harder. I’ll have to work on that. Thanks for dropping by & stay tune for more daily updates & reviews.

Have a BLISSFUL day!!!


[Baby] — Nursery Set Up


Here’s my before baby nursery set up – yes when we moved in to our new home. We basically store everything in here. It took me a few days to clear everything out and place furniture where I wanted.


It’s not completely finished yet – I still need to decorate and a little more organization.


So far – I placed all the baby clothes into the drawer. It was super easy because having another boy means I didn’t need to go out and shop for new things. I had my son’s old clothes stored in boxes and organized in sizes. I’m planning to re-wash all the newborn clothes one month before due date.


When all the wall stickers are in the wall and things complete – I’ll do a proper updated tour of this nursery. I can’t wait to wash all the bedding and have it all set up as well! Stay tune for more daily updates – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for dropping by!


Have a BLISSFUL day!!!






[Kids] — Must have for babies • Tips & Advice

Having a kid id like a nonstop shopping spree – not only that – babies stuff are extremely expensive too. New parents tend not to care much about the prices because they want to give their little ones the best things possible.

From what I remember – we spent about $2500-$3000CAD for nursery furniture’s, decorations, and gadgets. Not including baby shower to celebrate. It gets quite expensive – so look out for special deals weekly! Check out for Babies R Us weekly sales!

I wanted to round it up to 10 MUST haves for newborns to one year old but it’s quite impossible. I choose 14 items for this blog post – hopefully it’s useful for all you new parents out there!


First off – starting off with the big furniture’s. I purchased both crib and diaper table at Babies R Us, from what I remember – they had free shipping after purchasing a certain amount. I got the nursing chair as well. I would say these are the most expensive items comparing to other stuff. Crib: $299.99+tax // Mattress $99+tax // Diaper Table $219.99+tax // Diaper table mat: around $30.

& than you’ll need to get the bedding sets, rhythm musical accessory for crib, diaper mat covers and etc…

I didn’t add the nursing chair on this blog post because it wasn’t necessary – I barely sat on it to feed my son. I just fed on the couch and bed. It wasn’t used often but it was quite expensive at $249.99+tax. It did look nice in the nursery but definitely don’t need it.


Play Pen is next on the list – we got a play pen after our son was born. Never thought about having him next to us in our room. So we got this the next day he was born. Very convenient – he slept next to us. There’s a changing pad too – so we don’t need to walk to his room to change. I think play pens nowadays is around $70-140 – depending the brand and style.

Most babies love the swing! But mine don’t at all – so it was a little waste. Hopefully my next child would love it. This gadget does the swing motion, vibration, and music rhythm. Price is around $100-$150.


Play mat was probably the only thing I never got – I couldn’t justify paying $80-$140 for a mat that he will probably look at for about a month or two. I did get him a tummy mat for cheaper.

Baby carrier is another item we didn’t use as much. Max we used it 6-7 times. These things cost around $40-$150. Wished we used it more though. It’s convenient to bring your little one out for walks and outings. Would recommend getting this but make sure you can use it number of times unlike us.


Stroller and car seat is one of the most important things on the list! Can be one of the most expensive on the list as well. Price ranges from $150-$1500. Yes! What’s the big difference? There is a big difference. The weight, the convenience, the wheels, and etc. The cheaper the stroller is – the heavier it is. That’s what I notice. When it’s heavy – you’ll be annoyed opening and closing it. Plus the wheels are better too with average to higher end strollers. You basically get what you pay for. We went mid-range for strollers and car seat. We settle with Britax. Stroller $249.99+tax and car seat $299.99+tax. It adds up to a little less than $700. Yes pricy but I would recommend parents to invest on a better quality stroller and car seat.

Will just make your life easier. So far – we love our stroller. After almost 4 years – it’s still in great condition – no tears or rips. Everything in perfect condition and we plan to use the same one with our second child. We just need to buy a new car seat since Britax car seats expire in 7 years. Make sure you buy a set of good strollers and car seat! It’s worth it!


Tub prices range from $30-$80. It’s like a must have item on the list. Cant bath the baby without a tub right?

Baby jumpers are usually used when baby are ready. When they can hold their head up and depending on the growth of their development. It helps with leg, neck, full body exercise and something to keep your baby busy. My son loved jumping in it – he loved playing the toys around it too. Price from $70-$140.


Is bumbo chair worth it? I have to say yes and no. I don’t like the short term usage of it but yet – it is very useful for 2-4 months. This is my son’s first feeding chair where we fed baby cereal to him. When we have dinner – we just sit him on top of the table with us. It’s very cute but expensive. This chair with tray is about $90.00! Yes and you don’t use it for long too! Once he knows how to move around – they don’t want to be in the chair anymore. With the price that steep – I think I will still purchase it again if I have to. Would you?

Graduating from the Bumbo chair to high chair. Another must have to keep your child seated while feeding and this chair – you can train them to pick up their own food to eat. The trays are usually removal for parents to easily wash. Price around $80-$300.


You don’t just need a high chair – you would need to purchase a booster chair for going out to restaurants or other people’s homes to eat. Price is around: $20-$80.

Here’s my last item on the list. A bouncer for your newborn to sit in and listen to music. We made use of this quite often. Whenever we needed to do something quick – we left him in there. The stuff toy hanging keeps them busy. When they are ready to reach – they’ll play with it. This is sort of like a swing but it’s just more convenient to move around than a swing. Price ranges from $30+.

There goes my list – I can go on and on but I’ll leave it at 14. Otherwise this blog post will be super long. Something’s on the list is not a must have but good to have around.

Are you a soon to be parent? Find this post helpful? Comment below to share. The prices I listed here is an approximate to give you an idea of how much things cost. It’s definitely pricey but totally worth it for the little one! Being a parent is a blessing and you’ll find all the joy raising your little one.

These are only baby stuff – the shopping will be nonstop till they turn teenagers! Stay tune for more daily updates – this blog is updated every single day at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for reading!

Have a WONDERFUL day!!!




[Kids] — Nursing & Feeding Must Haves • Tips & Advices • Avent Philips Products

d010 d011

Sterilizer                              |                        Bottle Variety Pack

Since I did a MUST HAVE FOR BABIES two days ago – I thought it be cute to do a ‘must have for nursing and feeding’ too. I got to admit that it’s pretty fun looking at these baby stuff – it makes me have BABY FEVER! Like serious baby fever! Anyways – since I am extremely OCD with everything – even with my nursing and feeding bottles, I used only one brand and that is Avent Philips. I love the series and would re-purchase everything again if I have to. The sterilizer is a must have after washing your baby bottles, you gotta sterilize all bottles and your breast pump, nipples, and milk storage’s. Sterilizer is $39.99+tax.

The variety pack is quite a good deal at $59.99+tax – it has a little bit of everything inside. To be honest – if you are full time breast feeding – you really don’t need that many bottles. Just store your extra milk in storage cups or storage bags.

d012 d013

Automatic Double Pump              |                 Milk Storage Bags

For my baby #2 – I would purchase the automatic double pump this time around because the manual pump is just WAY too tiring! I had only 1 manual pump and you can imagine how tiring it is – pumping like 30 minutes each time. Although the automatic pump is quite pricey at $299.99+tax – its still worth it. This price is actually a decent price comparing to other brands. For the manual pump I have – I’m still keeping it for going out purpose and vacation purpose.  With so much milk pumped – I’ll be using storage bags this time – just provides more room in the fridge & freezer. These Avent Milk Storage Bags is at $6.99+tax for 25 counts. Not necessary for the same brand – you can use other brands too – to me its all the same.

d014 d015

Re-useable Breast Pads                 |                     Baby Bullet

Last time I used disposable breast pads – which it adds up. A box of disposable can be $13.00 and you can use it for one month. Next time around – I’ll be purchasing reusable breast pads for $11.99+tax and it comes in 6! Even if I need to purchase 2 packs of the reusable ones – I still save a lot of money. You can simply throw it in the washer and have it air dry.

Baby bullet was VERY useful when it came to making solid food for my Munchkin. I love the storage food containers PLUS the whole set is just very adorable. I wish they had more colors though. Other than that – its perfect. It comes with a manual to teach parents how to make it and what to make at what age. The price is quite reasonable at $64.99+tax. You will be using it every single day when your little one starts solid. I love the baby bullet – one of my must haves!

d016 d017

Baby Food Storages         |          Avent Nipples

There’s times where you want to make more in a day – so you don’t need to make it every single day – these food storage boxes will come in handy too! Eight little boxes at $7.99+tax.

Since I just did some research that baby bottles is safe to be reused – I’ll be reusing the baby bottles my son used and replacing the nipples. They come in sizes: Newborn flow, Medium flow, and Fast flow at $7.49+tax for 2 nipples.

What would I do differently the next time? I think the next time I would breastfeed for a longer period of time. Probably wean my little one off the breast at 9 months and still be pumping milk till he’s 1.5 years old. I don’t mind the breast feeding or pumping – its not too painful for me. The reason why is because my son has a milk allergy without knowing – when we knew about it – it was too late. My milk was all gone. The doctor said he’ll be fine without milk as long as he eats protein. He was only 10 months old – I wish I could of still pump milk for him. Thank god he’s good with diary now but I wished I could of provided him with more breast milk when he was little. So that’s the only thing that I would do differently.

Before I thought of buying all nursing gadgets and baby bottles brand new because I didn’t know that it would be safe to reuse. But after researching – its just as safe. Which is perfect – I can reuse all the bottles and save about $40-$50. The only thing that I really need for my baby #2 is the automatic double pump system, storage bags, reusable breast pads, and new nipples for bottles. Other than that – everything can be reused. Perfect isn’t it? I love typing up these post – it prepares me to let myself know what I need when number 2 comes – I just don’t know when number two comes yet! Hope this blog post will help all you new parents out there! I love this brand and would recommend it to anyone out there! Stay tune for more daily blog posts – this blog is updated every single day at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for reading!

PS: Just a little note – watch out for AVENT product sales on Babies R Us – they are always on sale!

Have a BLISSFUL day!!!




[Life Style] — Life As A Blogger


How do I blog? How do I get a blog post in every single day? Where do I find time for this? How do I do it? 

First off – I got to love what I’m doing – otherwise I would not enjoy blogging. Blogging is like keeping a life journal for me which I share with other people.

Second is I don’t blog every day – all my blog posts are typed in advance and scheduled in advance. I try to be super advance as I can be. Because I just got to expect the unexpected.

When things come up – I got to be prepared for it. Ideally – I try to blog a month in advance. Some blog posts are a couple days in advance. I would prefer to have it two months advance but it all depends if I’m in the mood for it. I plan my blog posts in advance – so I can have my MeTime or plan other blog posts in advance.

Third goes to I blog when I have free time. For example: Taking my son to play room, swimming class, and summer camp. I usually don’t blog at home. It’s always on the go when I have time to squeeze. Hence – I don’t like to waste my time. Every minute wasted I can be doing something useful. I’m usually on the go when I blog. I would type out the topics of my blog posts on my phone and blog from my phone. How convenient right?

That’s basically my blogging recipe. I find this blog therapeutic for me where I can manage it and enjoy it. I don’t necessarily need to blog every single day but I love to. No one is managing me on what to do and not to do. This blog is just ME. Welcome to my blogging life!

How do you manage your blogging style? Comment below to share! Stay tune for more daily blog posts – this blog is updated every single day at 12PM Eastern Time!

[Haul] — My Pink Home Diary • Mats & Plates

c078 c079

Here comes a mini home stuff haul. I should really find a proper title for these hauls. Anyways – I’m always on the hunt for pink stuff for my home. I score two different items this time.

First – it’s these hot pink bath mats at One’s Better Living for $7.99 each and it was a sales item. I picked two up for two bathrooms. Love them because it’s super soft and amazing quality! The fabric feels like stepping on cloud – that’s how soft it is. I imagine clouds are fluffy and soft lol.


Second – I score these pink Japanese floral plates at the Two Dollara Japsnese store inside Market Village for two bucks a plate. I bought six of these and will be using these for snacks and side plates for dinner. Love it!

That’s what I found! Love all the items purchased! I think I’ll call these hauls – My Pink Home Diary. Cute name eh? Stay tune for more daily life stories and hauls – this blog is updated daily at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for hopping by!

[Life Story][Youtube] — My Vlogging Life Updates


What happened to my every day vlogging? Don’t get me wrong I’m still vlogging just not on an everyday basis. I find that it’s boring and repetitive vlogging the same thing every day. Especially I’m home most of the time and doing mostly the same routines.

I enjoy capturing memories still – I’m still vlogging those special and growing up moments. Especially trip days, firsts, going outs and etc. Stay tune for more vlogs and blog posts – this blog is updated daily at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for dropping by & see you soon!

[Life Story][Kids] — Eventful Summer Plans For Our Toddler


This 2015 summer sure will be an eventful one for my little three years old or to be exact 40 months old! I signed him up for a two hour once a week summer camp where he can develop some independent time without mommy and daddy. Where he can play with other kids and enjoy some outdoor activities.

Also I signed him up with a 9 week swimming class program. This time around I will let him continue swimming all year round and let him level up. Usually during Parent and Tod swimming classes – parents are there to swim with him. Since he’s old enough this year – he’s on his own with the instructor! Another chance of being independent!

He’ll have lots of fun but yet learn lots of different skills. I’m glad I’ll be having two hours off every week while he’s at summer camp! Do you keep your kids busy during the whole summer or just the summer? Comment below to share!

[Life Story] — My Bloating Problem 


I’ve always had this bloating problem of mine for many years now but never cared till now to deal with this issue. I actually didn’t know it was bloating problem back in elementary school. Because my stomach will hurt most days starting from morning and into the day. I didn’t speak up about it either. It did affect my gym performances during those days and the teachers properly thought I was lying about it since I’m not that active in class.

Now that I finally am older and have the time to deal with it. My stomach doesn’t hurt as much as before because I found out how I could avoid those pains – I just had to release all gas in the morning than my day will be perfect. But sometimes it’s hard to release it – so coffee helps a lot. I mean – black coffee.

I’m trying different methods with this bloating method and keeping active and eating healthy sure does help. I tried making ginger lemon water too. I think it helped a little. I drank as much water possible in a day because some says it helps but it also makes my stomach full of water at the same time.

I’m going to keep trying and see what works for me but this bloating issue has got to go! I’m tired living this way – my body is perfect in the morning by afternoon or night – I would look 5-6 months pregnant. This is not right! Do you have the same problem too? How do you deal with it?

[Celebration][Jayden] — Jayden’s 3rd Birthday – Chuck E Cheese & All Stars Wings

a02 a03

I’m like two and a half months late from this event! Yes – horrible blogger! But thank goodness – I saved these pictures in my draft folder on this blog – otherwise I probably wouldn’t know that I haven’t blogged about Munchkins’ 3rd birthday on March 1st 2015. We held his birthday party on February 22nd 2015 – you can read the blog post here. I usually like to host his birthday party a week or two early – so I can enjoy his actual birthday with him. The day I gave birth to this precious boy – those memories will live with me forever and ever!

a04 a05

We had an relaxing afternoon followed by going to Chuck E Cheese with Munchkins’ Godfather and an Auntie. He had quite a lot of fun there spending time with his God father. Love these precious moments. Oh by the way – the first picture on the left was when he was crying in the morning – yes crying on his birthday. I don’t remember why but I did vlog that day – so I must watch it back and see what happened – perhaps he was fake crying? lol.

a06 a07

Had dinner at All Stars Wings & Ribs that night – Munchkin had a complimentary birthday cake and all the waitresses came to sing Happy Birthday to him. The funnest part was blowing out the candle on his own! I cannot believed he turned three – where has the time gone to? I missed holding him when he was a newborn – all he did was eat, sleep, and poop! Okay – to sum it up – being a mother for three years has its ups and downs – I would not trade it for the world to do this all over again. My dream was to be a mother and I’m living that dream! Happy 3rd birthday baby boy – daddy & mommy loves you!

Thanks for dropping by – stay tune for more updates!

Have an AMAZING day!!!



[Life Update] — Enjoying A Little Too Much :)


For those that follow this blog – you must be wondering where I have been eh? I usually have a blog post updated every day. I’ve been taking a little break to enjoy a bit of the family life as of lately. Probably enjoying a bit way too much that I haven’t blogged or vlogged for awhile. I do miss it and I will get back into it. Just probably not an every single day basis. I’ve been catching up with some new hobbies of mine – such as reading novels and home cooking – experimenting with different recipes. Life has been amazing with my family – loving lots of family time. In fact – I feel like I never do get enough of it. Loving the warm weather as well! I’m surprised that this year I haven’t had much allergies like last year.

I’ll be sharing more on this blog soon! Stay tune for that! Are you all enjoying the spring weather? If you follow my blog – don’t forget to comment below!

[Review] — JOICO – K-PAK Smoothing Hair Balm REVIEW


My first hair product review on this blog! This JOICO – K-PAK smoothing balm was highly recommended from my hairdresser since my hair was extremely dry and frizzy. I needed something that would fix the problem ASAP because I was tired of having baby hair flying around when my hair is up on a pony tail. It’s kind of frustrating!

Do I love or hate this product? I find it to be okay – not love – just okay. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. I used it right after washing my hair before blow drying & I tried after blow drying.

I’ll be looking for something better after I finish this big tube of smoothing balm! It’s a huge tube at Shoppers Drug Mart for $23.99+ tax. Any good recommendation to keep hair in place? Please comment below to share with me!! Meanwhile stay tune for more product reviews & hauls – this blog is updated regularly!

Have a TERRIFIC & AWESOME day!!!




[Life Story] — Our New Home #LOVELOVELOVE

355 356

If you follow my blog regularly and noticed that I skipped some blog posts in the beginning of the month – I apologize for that. I was terribly busy with moving and arranging for our new home that I completely stopped vlogging for two weeks too. I just didn’t have the time to vlog and edit PLUS we didn’t have internet at our new place for over a week.


Now that everything is settled – my daily blog posts and vlogs is back in order. I missed both of my two hobbies oh-so-very-much!

358  360

We decided on a condo very quickly and signed the lease for a year. We wanted to test and try to see if we will like living in a condo. At first I was like “heck no – 800sqft condo? That’s way too small and no space!!” After moving here for almost two weeks now – I completely love how comfortable it is! The convenience of having everything on one floor is great! No need to chase my son up and down the stairs. No insects to deal with. Garbage and recycling is just 2 second away. Pool and gym is just downstairs. No shoveling. No mowing the lawn. No vacuuming two floors.


I’ll be checking out home and patio décor center for more ideas for our home – so far – I am loving the theme I picked but there’s still room for improvements. You might wonder why such a big change? At first we wanted to get a townhouse but with my mother-in-laws interference and lots of opinions – I just got so fed up of it. Don’t get me wrong – I still treat her like a mother and love her like a mother. But sometimes it’s just TOO MUCH. We just wanted our freedom – we just wanted our way of running our own family and routine. I just wanted my own kitchen! So with the price and location right – we leased right away.

The relationship with my in-laws is great still. We enjoy seeing them two times a week too.

I love how I get to arrange things I want. I love living in an environment where everything matches and make sense. I can plan our meals weekly and budget properly. I think it’s about time that we live on our own and raise our own family on our own. There’s more to to look forward to – I’ll be checking out Today’s Homes for more inspiration to design our place!

After a year of leasing we’ll look into buying a townhouse or condo – right now we might lean towards a condo :). The theme of our condo is hot pink, black brown furniture, and Rilakkuma bear. I’m in live with our new home! This post is getting super long – going to end it here now – stay tune for my daily blog posts – this blog is updated every single day at 12PM Eastern Time!

Have a WONDERFUL day!!!
