“Moyamoya syndrome is a disease in which certain arteries in the brain are constricted. Blood flow is blocked by the constriction, and also by blood clots. A collateral circulation develops around the blocked vessels to compensate for the blockage, but the collateral vessels are small, weak, and prone to hemorrhage, aneurysm and thrombosis. On conventional…

Meet our fish, “L”

My oldest turns 5 on Sunday… where has the time gone?! It’s bittersweet. Part of me rejoices in the splendor of her being (which far exceeds my expectation), the other part wants to kick father time’s butt for the speedy years. I want to push and pull. It’s a bit painful for me because she’s…

Loot Anime January Unboxing: D

So, I’ve failed to post our unboxing experience with Loot Anime in the last couple of months. I’m sorryyy!! They’ve been great boxes, by the way! This is also one of the biggest reasons I end up forgetting to do the unboxing for our Loot Anime. The collectibles they send in the box has a…

Gamer Block January Unboxing

This unboxing came at a crucial time. I’ve been shipwrecked for weeks and this box pulled me right out of the chaos of adulting. February’s been kicking my butt! God help me, it’s only the beginning of the month. I feel like waving a little white flag in defeat… On second thought, never mind. That requires…

The Promises Kept

We had a dragon to slay and  unicorns to tame today. I need magic, not make-up. Adrenaline, not coffee. I had blood shot eyes, eye bags underneath my eye bags, and greasy hair…. Screw, Monday. While I marinated in my workload, they spent quality time completing their quest. At which point, a promised was made. It didn’t seem…

OOTD: Simple & Clean

We explored our local and neighboring cities this week to enjoy what it had to offer. That pathway we usually drive by and leave behind? We stopped to take a stroll on it. The coffee shop we usually drive through for coffee? We sat to enjoy a cup in it. That Guitar Center we pass by? We visited and…

Stroke Facts

It breaks my heart to find out that a friend just passed away. A stroke can happen to anyone, of any age, and of any gender. She was too young.  I miss your silliness H! You gave so much comfort to parents of stroke victims, those who have gone through a stroke, and EVERYBODY who…

Inspiration of the Day

Keep the promises you make to yourself. Make real ones. Make big ones. …Then keep it. This is what separates wishful thinking and  beginning the process of setting goals for ourselves.

OOTD: A Pointed Direction

Here’s the thing about life… it doesn’t matter who you are and where you’ve been, it forces us to constantly choose a path that directs our current and future situations. It’s ever changing and always moving forward… even when it doesn’t feel like it. Time doesn’t stop and life goes on… ready or not.   I celebrated…

Life After The NICU…

My husband and I were blessed with twins 3 years ago who  decided to meet us early, VERY early. It resulted in a 9 month stay in the NICU and overcoming many hurdles as a family… Fast forward and you have two very curious little girls who test the limits AND is a testament of what miracles are…

Arcade Block December 2016 Unboxing

Just because Christmas has passed doesn’t mean the gifting has ended in this household. At least, that’s what it felt like when we received our Arcade Block. Our kids seem to agree… they gathered close and held onto the collectibles they most liked instead of passing it around like we usually do. They especially liked the…

Shirt Block December 2016 Unboxing

Hellooo, Shirt Block. How we’ve missed you! Literally. We missed November’s box… and that was something I REGRET!! But, tears dried… here we are at yet another unboxing. You know that it’s a good subscription when you know nothing about some of the themes but LIKE IT anyways. Being pretty new to this nerdom lifestyle…these types of subscriptions…
