Tips-for-Tire-Maintenance

One thing we love to make sure we do come spring is make sure our cars are all in great working order. That means oil changes, fluid checks, and tire inspections. With the wear and tear we put on our cars, we need to make sure our family is safe when we’re on the road. And our tires are something we keep up with regularly.

With our spring cleaning routines inside already in place, we’ve started to move outside to our three vehicles. Each has had their regular maintenance check but we noticed that our commuter car needs new tires. Regularly checking a car’s tires each month only takes 5 minutes but can alleviate any concern about the tire. [Read more…]

Living Room Decor Ideas with Mohawk

One thing I had a bit of a problem with when we moved into our new home was figuring out how to decorate each room. Luckily with a little time I was able to search some living room decor ideas to find the perfect layout for our new living room.

It may have taken us almost 6 months but we took our time to find pieces that fit our lifestyle and our space. Two things that I think are very important when furnishing and decorating a room.

Luckily I planned in advance and did a lot of the pick up and deep cleaning ahead of time – including hiring a maid the week before to do some of the chores I can’t really do easily in my third trimester of pregnancy.

After we tackle these we’ll be looking at if we’re ready for chickens! Now that will be an adventure.  [Read more…]
