2018 in Review

Whew! It's been a whirlwind year! And just like that, we've gotten to the very last day of 2018. It's crazy how much time flies, isn't it? I think I'm ready for 2019 to start.

BERRY VLOG: Money Mistakes and Lessons of 2018

If anyone had told me that I would be in more debt at the end of this year than last year, I would have rolled my eyes and dismissed them. After the amount of debt that was sprung on me last year, I promised myself that I would be more vigilant with my finances this year. Alas, I was more vigilant, BUT I still made some mistakes that put me thousands of dollars in more debt. Typically, I would be wailing and crying about how much money I owe (thank God for payment plans by the way), but I've finally come to the realization that I can learn from my mistakes and correct them going forward. In this video, sponsored by Clever Girl Finance, I shared what those mistakes were and the lessons I've learned regarding money in 2018.

Hi there!

I'm so sorry I missed last week's Lovely Links post - life was just hectic and crazy and overtook my will to blog. But I'm here with a nice list of links for you to check out this Christmas weekend, and I hope you enjoy them.

Sleep Training a Toddler with Baby Sleep School

I got my first Christmas present already! FINALLY, I think I can definitely say that Little Miss Cocoa has been sleep trained successfully. Our journey here has been long and full of tears from her (AND me too). I've practically passed out at work from sheer exhaustion. There were starts, then stops, then restarts and more stops. I've been yelled at, scolded, reprimanded by well-meaning older family members because they don't agree with leaving a baby/toddler to cry. Basically, it's been a long road to get here! And thanks to Baby Sleep School, we have finally arrived!

Quotes about Goals!

Hi there!!!

I've been thinking a lot about goal setting, and I hope by now you have not only downloaded my Goal Getter Guides, but also shared the link within your circles! Sometimes, when setting goals or even in the middle of working towards those goals, some extra motivation is needed in the form of quotes. We all love some good motivational quotes, and not only did I add some great ones in my Goal Getter Guides, I thought it would be nice to share some Goal Setting quotes right here. Some of them are long (I'll share 2 motivational messages I've posted at my desk at work), some are short, and some are directly from the Bible.

Cruise Vacation - Costa Maya, Mexico


How was your weekend? Mine was pretty good - I got a chance to really rest, and so I feel pretty refreshed today. I know it seems like our Family Cruise 2018 series will never end, but I promise, I have just 2 more posts after this one. I'd like to share some photos of the ship, and all the food we ate :D But in today's post, I'm sharing photos from our very last stop on the cruise with Royal Caribbean. We docked at Costa Maya, Mexico (remember our first Mexican stop in Cozumel?).
