Month: January 2017

What a disappointing weekend…


My husband had gotten tickets last year to go to the San diego zoo and we decided to go this past weekend, so we got a hotel for the weekend to make it a mini getaway! We were both so excited…on Friday I woke up sick 😡 which sucked but we couldn’t cancel the hotel since it was too late so we decided to go either way and just stay at the hotel (boy do I regret that decision!) we got to our hotel, the lafayette hotel in San Diego! My first expression of it was how neat and cool it was because it is a historical hotel after all, I loved all the sayings that they had on each door number…I would read it as I would walk by each room. Now here is the reason why it was such a disappointing weekend…we got there around do 11pm or so and I could not wait to get in bed and sleep (I’m sick and exhausted) well it turns out that the heater wasnt working which I didnt think would be such a big issue since husband and I love the cold weather. Well it was colder than I thought and even sleeping in a hoodie and blankets I was still cold so I woke up Saturday even more sick. We went down to grab breakfast and I informed the front desk that our heater wasn’t working and I need someone to fix it because I’m sick and don’t want to end up with pneumonia. Well no one ever went to fix it. We waited an hour or so after breakfast and tried to call and turns out our phone is broken. So I went back to the front desk at this point so pissed and complain how I have a fever, we’ve been waiting and no one has come up. So finally they send over extra blankets and a portable heater. Then I decided to take a shower…boy again wrong decision! The water was perfect for the first 30 seconds of me getting in; then the water would go from super duper hot to freezing within a matter of minutes and back again to super hot. I am as so annoyed! Sunday comes and we wake up to leave and I have all these bumps, they’re kind of like a bug bite but also look like blisters all over my right hand…it hurts and is so itchy! 

Overall I regret this trip so so much! 

How was your weekend? 

Tips for when you’re sick…

tips-when-youre-sick

It is that time of the year when everyone is either getting over a cold/flu or is just getting it…I currently have a cold! I thought it would be helpful to share tips for when you are sick.

  • Stay hydrated! Drink lots of water, juice (especially with lots of vitamin C) and tea
    • My favorite tea to drink when I’m sick is chamomile with honey, or what I also like to do is mix 5 or 6 cough drops into a cup of hot water and drink it as it…sounds weird but so good!
  • Avoid caffeinated drinks, they will dehydrate you.
  • Rest! Rest! Rest! – get as much sleep as you possibly can!
  • If the air in your room/house is dry, use a humidifier. You can even add a 2 or 3 drops of essential oil in it if you’re into it. I use an oil diffuser almost everyday but more so when I’m sick and my favorite oils to use are lavender, peppermint and eucalyptus.
  • Take an epsom salt bath. It will help relief body aches, stress, eliminated toxins from your body and much more!
  • Wash your hands often!!!
  • Eat and drink things with lots of vitamin C!
  • Drink pineapple juice…not only does it contain 50% of the daily requirement for vitamin C but it also helps with your cough.
  • Gargle with Salt water…this is my least favorite and I honestly never do it but I always get told to do so.
  • Avoid exercise, stress, daily chores as much as you can.
  • Get some fresh air…it’s good for you!

Hope you avoided getting sick this season!

Tips for When You’re Sick.

What are some things you do when you’re sick?

Tea Time Thursday

My goal for this year was for me to blog everyday, well that has not been the case. I have been so busy at work, my bosses mom who helps with the kids when me and the other nanny aren’t there got super sick for a good few weeks, and so I have been staying past my hours and helping and even working weekends. By the time I get home I just shower and get in bed….I’m exhausted! And now I think I’m getting sick 😔

I think starting next week (hopefully) my schedule will go back to normal so I can get back to normal things in life; starting with this blog! One thing I want to start doing is tea time Thursdays (TTT)…meaning I talk about what type of tea I’m drinking that day! So here is the first TTT, it is the organic sweet almond green tea From Davids tea. My sweet coworker knows how much I love tea and got me a mix of teas from Davids tea (my favorite tea store) for Christmas! Out of all the teas that were in the box, I would have to say this is my favorite…I love the smell and the taste of it! 

Is the Weekend Really Over?

And just like that, the weekend came to an end! It went by super fast and honestly it didn’t even feel like a weekend; mainly because I worked both Saturday and Sunday. Saturdays I work for my regular nanny family so of course I was there, then hubby and I had a double date planned with my cousin and her new boyfriend, we had a great time, ate a little too much though lol. Today I actually babysat for my last nanny family who I was with for 7 years, it was so great to see and hang out with the kids and even care for their new 3 month old baby brother. After wards hubby and I just went food shopping for the week…fun weekend right? lol Now I’m laying here trying to get my nausea to go away (I get nauseous whenever I take my multivitamins…I hate it) but I have my peppermint oil in my diffuser so thats helping! But its time for me to call it a night and go to bed to get some rest for work tomorrow!

How was your weekend?

Poor Boo is Sick! 


Happy Friday everyone. It’s been such a busy day for me, I just got off from working 12.5 hours and I’m exhausted! My little boo that I nanny for whose 8 months old is sick right now and it’s been rough. She’s usually such a happy baby but today she’s been miserable and it breaks my heart! She’s been cranky and very clingy, we spent a lot of time cuddling and she napped on me for every single nap, which I love but it’s hard to get anything done when I’m holding her. I hate it when babies are sick, I feel so helpless! I’m ready to drink some hot tea, relax and go to bed and get some much needed rest and hopefully be able to sleep in for a bit.  

Have a great weekend 😊

Find your purpose…


I still don’t know what my purpose is in life but I’m slowly trying to figure it out. I do know my passion though, my passion is to read, write and help care for babies. I’m trying to figure out a way to put those three things together to make it my purpose in life.

What’s your purpose/passion?

I love being a Nanny!

plain-and-simple-i-love-my-job

As I mentioned before I started a new job 8 months ago today. I’m a nanny and I care for the most adorable 8 month old princess ever! I started off as her full time nanny when she first came home from the hospital (she was 5 days old.) I fell in love with her instantly and am so obsessed with her (my husband would disagree and say obsession doesn’t even begin to describe it haha.) This past weekend I didn’t see her for 3 days and I couldn’t wait to go in this morning to squeeze her. She was so excited to see me that we just sat on the rocking chair and cuddled and sang songs for a good 15 or so minutes. I love that she already recognizes me and gets so excited to see me on a daily basis. It’s so nice to finally have a job that I love and that I actually am so excited to go to work. My last family that I was with for 7 years, I loved them and I still love the kids, but the past 3 or so years, it just got stressful and there were days where I didn’t want to go to work. I was unhappy and I knew I had to move on and I’m so glad I found a family that I’m so happy with!

Hello 2017

img_5320

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you had a great time kicking 2016 out and welcoming 2017! I’m excited for this year, I’m hoping things will be much better for everyone this year. Hubby and I ended up going to my mother in laws house to kick in the new year then went back to my moms after 1am to celebrate with my family for a bit. I was so exhausted and ready for bed by 2am, not only because I had been up for over 19 hours but because this past week has been such a busy week for me at work, I have had to work longer hours which I don’t mind but then the animals wouldn’t let me sleep good at night at the house that hubby and I are currently house sitting at, the cats and dog kept scratching me, barking, or doing something to wake me up every single night for a good couple of times. So I haven’t had a good night’s rest in over a week; luckily tonight is the last night that we stay at this house then we go home and I can finally sleep in my own bed with no animals bothering me…thank goodness!
