Chelsea and I always try to spend the New Years holidays with our family. Its easier for us to take time off after Christmas. We really love being able to spend Christmas with my hubby and also want to be able to spend time with my Grandma as well especially. Growing up I didn’t get to spend much time with her. I have only really been closer to her in the past 6 years now. I try to spend a few weeks every year over at my dad and mom’s house so that we are able to spend sometime with my grandma. Even though we have been going to visit a few times a year. We managed to do some new things this time. Continue reading
We hadn’t had a chance to spend sometime with our cousins Valerie and her son Dominic in way too long. So we decided to meet half way and enjoy the day together. Our friend Donna was with us as well. Chelsea just enjoys animals tremendously.So this little location was just a perfect stop for us.
We especially loved the fact that we could purchase our tickets on Groupon for about $4.50 per person. Its not a big place but there are many different animals to see. There were many different reptiles and birds. As well as foxes, sloth, alligators, monkeys, and a few others.

Chelsea has been trying to find ways to connect with her daddy and we have found just the thing. Around Thanksgiving Chelsea had heard some music coming from her daddy’s phone and she recognized it because we had been playing Pokemon Go every once in awhile when we would go for our walks. Chelsea has since constantly asked Omar to play the game so that she can play with him. The past week it has actually turned into family time. We have gone on walks in our neighborhood together and even now taken a step further. Continue reading
I love having little knick knacks on my shelf in my office and in the cabinets of my home. I feel that its comforting to see the little knick knacks throughout the day as it brings me a smile. I feel that these are so adorable and that everyone will just love one of these in their stocking. Continue reading

It has been a tradition of ours to either volunteer our time in the holiday season to help with the 98.5 KLUC Toy Drive or to donate back to the community by taking toys that we have collected throughout the year. This year Chelsea and I were able to get 3 boxes worth of toys to donate to the toy drive. We really love seeing all of the donations that are being dropped off and especially the “Sea of Bikes” there are thousands of bikes lined up together and at each moment the amount just keeps on growing. They were at Truck #23 I believe when we got there and were quickly filling it up. It was great to see old friends and to make some new.
