#Gamandfer life update

Happy Friday everyone,

It is the last Friday of this month! I am so excited for August to arrive and start school. However, this is a #gamandfer update. If you didn’t know I have been married for the past 7 months. My love story can be found in the story tab up above. Like I said I’ve been married for 7 months and it still feels like we just got married 2 months ago, although we have been through so much in 7 months that I think were things that a newlywed does not expect until years in the marriage. So, in a way it feels like we have been married for a couple of years, also we fit right in. At first, Gama and I didn’t know who we were going to be living together, were we going to be shy and slowly open up, or were we just going to be ourselves from the beginning. I was shy but I knew I also wanted to be myself so after a few days we were just ourselves, we had to be since we are spending the rest of our lives together, we should learn what we are going to have to deal with, and although sometimes, I wish I didn’t open myself up so much at first, I think that was one of the things that have really made our marriage so strong.  Right now, I think we are at a very good time in our 7-month marriage and we are both very happy. The beginning was rough, not only in the marriage but in my life personally, which I have talked about it a bit in The Life Plan blog post. Also, if you didn’t know we adopted a dog back in March, Max is the craziest dog I know, but he just completes our little family. We are not planning on growing our family yet, there are a couple of things we would like to do before having a baby, and we want to enjoy the time we have to ourselves for now.  We have had marriage, work, financial, and appliance problems, but with the help of God, we have passed through all of those situations. Our friendships have also grown, and we have bet amazing people from all over the U.S. and also the world. I have also started working and although I am enjoying my new job, I would like to work at school if possible, I am waiting to hear back from them but God willing it will happen. It is just easier because we only have one car and if I go to school and then my husband would have to pick me up and take me home then to work, but he also has to work and can’t be doing all of that, so I feel it would be best if he could drop me off in the morning and pick me up in the afternoon once he is off work and so would I, if I get the job at the school. The church we are attending is small, compared to the church we would attend back in our hometown, but it is a very nice church, we can really feel God’s presence, and the preachings are amazing. Everyone at church has always been very welcoming to us and caring. I really am in love with our new life together, and even though we got married at a young age, it was the best thing that could happen to the both of us. So, I am very thankful to God for the wonderful husband he gave me and every night I hug my husband and thank God that He let us have one more day of life together and to bless our marriage more and more. So here is your #gamandfer update, I hope you enjoyed reading today’s post and if you have any questions please leave them down below or send them to me through the contact me tab up above. Thank you and enjoy the rest of your day! Have a blessed weekend! ❤

The Life Plan

Welcome Back!
Recently I have gone back to the habit of reading and I love it! I just finished reading The life plan by Shannah Kennedy. This amazing author really inspired me and helped take my life out of the rut I had fallen into. The Life Plan became my all time favorite book and I would recommend you all to purchase it when you can! It is not only a very inspiring book but also an activity book, it helps you find yourself and allows you to write in the book and figure things out for yourself. I started reading the book when I was feeling down and insecure, I was doing so bad that I was crying while reading the first pages of the book, due to the realization of how bad I was doing, but in the middle of the book, I felt like myself once again, I was back on my feet and moving on with life, and so every day I worked on myself, I worked so much and now I feel the best I have felt in a couple of years. I suffer from anxiety and depression, but I had controlled it for a while and in 2015 it came back worse than ever and since then I have really been struggling to live with it. However, today that I have finished this amazing book, my life is at the best point it has been, and so is my marriage. Everything is working great thanks to God, I also finally figured out what I want to do with my career life and I finally got a job after months of applications and interview. This book is great, and I don’t only say it because of how much it helped me, but it is a great read, successful people recommend and review this book all the time, talking about how motivating and helpful it is even when you are at your very best. So really, when you have the chance to purchase it, you really should!

Below are the 2 covers of the book, and 2 images of the pages inside this incredible book!

Happy Thursday!

I wanted to let you all know that I will try my best to make videos that go along with the blog post. I had a video about pantry organization, but since I upgraded my blog, I thought I would also try harder on filming. So I took down the video to make a better one, I am still in the process of filming it, however, I just uploaded a video on one of my recipes, and I hope you all enjoy watching it.

Why the new blog?

Beautiful Morning!

For those new readers, you might not know this but this is actually Fer’s Blog 2.0, you see when I started blogging back in April I started with a completely different look/layout on my blog, and also on another website. As I was working on my blog, my husband would occasionally help me edit my post and give me his honest opinion. So in trying to better my blog, I decided to start with a fresh and better look, so I moved to my blog over to WordPress and then I just transferred my blog post from my first blog and added some new ones. It took me a while to understand how WordPress works, and how to run my blog on it. But now that I have it all figured out, I am ready to start blogging again, I also wanted to interact with all of you more, and on this blog platform allows us to do so, you can comment, like and share the blog post. My husband was really happy with this new look for the blog, he said it was way better than my first one and that it is more appealing to men lol. I hope you all enjoy my blog and know that my previous blog was deleted so if you look for it, it will no longer be available. Thank you so much for all of your support.

-Blessings, Fer

Pantry Organization

Welcome Back!

An organized pantry does not only make your home look better, but it also saves you and your guest time when trying to find a specific object that is hidden in your pantry. For today, I will share with you some pantry organization tips along with a video of my pantry. Let’s get started, first, the thing that I find the most essential for organizing your pantry are storage baskets. I have purchased different kinds of storage baskets at both Walmart and Target. Also, glass containers/jars work great I use them mainly to store my pasta and rice, I purchased all of them at Marshalls for under $5 each, which is a great price for their size and quality. At target I bought my biggest wire basket for $3 in the dollar spot section, and at Walmart I have bought everything else that I use to organize my pantry, I am going to say the most expensive, basket or container I bought was $4 but everything else has been from .74 cents to $2 dollars. Again these are great prices for your items. My all time favorite are my 2 wire baskets from Walmart, the cost $1.98 each, they fit much more things than my other baskets, I regret not buying more because they went out of stock super fast, even online. Check your Walmart and buy these if they are available, I highly recommend them! Now moving on to plastic containers with dispensers, these are great for storing cereal, and it prevents spills unlike, pouring cereal out of the box and sometimes when you try to open the bag it rips more than it should, creating a mess. The size I have fit a large box of cereal in them, and since I have 3 of them I use one for my cereal, one for my husbands, and one for beans, because I have not found the ideal container to hold my beans yet. However, these containers were a wedding gift from my mom, so I do not know where she got them, nor the price, I have seen some at Target, but they are different. Anyways, I also recommend buying bag clips, that are so helpful to close anything that does not close once you open it like a bag of chips or crackers, and so on. These clips are sold almost at every store, I got mine at ross I believe it was $3 for 10 clips, and they all come in different sizes. I do keep some items in their original packaging because it is not really necessary to put them in a basket, but if you like it that way, go for it! I just have my cake mix, pancake mix, and cane sugar in their origin package but I do put them all in the same area, so I know exactly where to find them. This is also a very good tip, categorize your baskets, and each row of your pantry, in order for you to know what is in each basket and row, and find things quicker, instead of going through your entire pantry to find what you are looking for. Finally, if you want to know what is in my pantry and how I organize it, watch the video below, I hope you enjoyed this blog post, and let me know what you thought about it.                                                 -Blessings, Fer
