TigerGems 3.25 Oval Halo Engagement Ring Review

Leave a Comment



Who loves diamonds? This girl does, I think I spent most of my time looking at gorgeous rings on Pinterest and wishing I can reach into the screen, pull it out and wear it! Then I look at the price tag and my dreams are shattered. Maybe one day but then I found an affordable alternative that looks exactly like the real thing. No, I'm not talking about cubic zirconia rings, you can get those anywhere, I am talking about beautiful wedding rings, engagement rings and more that are handmade with love.

Dealing with Job Loss.

Leave a Comment


For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you know that I recently lost my job. For those who have been following me for a while know that this isn't the first time my family had to deal with job loss and if you're new here....Welcome to The Blog XO.

 The first time we dealt with being Laid off I was newly pregnant and had to move out of our home and live with my mother in law. This time it's summer time, my Husband is currently in school, and is a resident substitute teacher so during the summer there are no checks rolling in so I am the bread winner around this time. We depend on everything I make....well that was until I lost my job...

Losing a job is a mourning process. Especially when it hits you out of nowhere. With me just getting a raise 2 weeks before I got let go, my Husband and I were starting a new savings plan and getting our budget back together. We wanted to make sure we were prepared for something like losing job or an emergency. We couldn't even get things properly set up before things took a turn, and before you know it we have no idea how our bills will get paid, food bought and of course things for Ezra. My whole world was rocked because this was a job that I loved. No, I wasn't a CEO of a company or running my own business but it was something I was passionate about and went above and beyond my job title in. I had pictures of my family at my desk and would share part of my life with some of the people I worked with. I was starting to trust my co workers and build friendships. There wasn't a day that went by that someone including the owners of the company didn't acknowledge my work and tell me how great of a job I was doing. So after being let go and not knowing what is next for my family that was something that replayed in my mind over and over again.

I will be the first to admit, sex after Ezra was the furthest thing from my mind each day and before Ezra it was all that I wanted. I huge switch right, well when Ezra got bigger I started to realize the importance of keeping the intimacy alive in my marriage.

Balancing Mom life and Work Life.

Leave a Comment

Oh hey there.

So I thought it would be nice to share a little bit about how I balanced being a new mommy and working full time. I know all of us don't have the luxury of spending more than 6 weeks with your baby after giving birth, which I might add is absolutely an unrealistic timing to leave your baby and go back to work. America really needs to work on that. 

I stayed home with Ezra for 6 months, and that was the greatest experience, though it was very challenging sometimes because I really wanted to go back to work(which I sometimes felt the opposite after going back haha). I was able to find a job in the exact position that I wanted that allowed me to still balance being a new mother. It was definitely God sent cause I had a lot of flexibility.
