Happy momma, Happy home, Happy Everyone!

Have you ever heard of they saying "If momma ain't happy, then ain't nobody happy" ? I strongly agree with that quote! During this pregnancy, I am going through the hormones. It hasn't really been THAT bad, but I've come to the conclusion that I need more time for myself! 

A few things that I love to do to stay happy;

Spa Day

I don't do these often, mainly because I paint my own nails and it can get very expensive to have the do it. There are the times that I have just put it off for too long and the salon is calling my name. A nice fill in my acrylic overlays and an eyebrow wax is sometimes all I need to feel better!

Retail Therapy

Every girl needs this in her life. I haven't had one in a while. but I will have to soon, when I need to find clothes that actually fit me. I love to go to thrift stores or consignment shops the most. 


I know most of you non parents are probably thinking, 'wth'. Well this, for parents, is the time that we have to ourselves. That 15-30 minutes that I can think about anything & everything. I like to take these in the morning or late at night while Josiah is sleeping. 

Paint my nails

Actually having time to do this at least once a week is a great plus. I usually don't get to it because it takes so long for them to dry and I always hit them on something. If i get around to doing them it's usually while Josiah is sleep at night, when the dishes are put up and the clothes are out for the next day. 


This was one of my favorite past times. I really enjoy Zumba and any kind of classes at my gym. I haven't been able to work out because I'm just too scared with this being a high risk pregnancy. I always feel 20 times better after a great work out. And I honestly can't wait to get back into the gym! I'm totally losing all of this baby weight and well....I might be a little obsessed. I'm just sayin. 

What are some things that make you happy?
