Kisha Check's In | Chit Chat Vlog |


Hello friends! I hope you are having a wonderful day. It's pouring down rain here and kinda cold. The kids are doing their own things and the house is super quiet. I thought today I would just jump right in front of the camera and talk with you guys a little bit. I had some holiday questions that I never got around to answering which I included in the video. Plus I talk to you about some youtube happenings and the Love the Home You Have Challenge for January. If you want to hear me ramble on for a bit, here's the video! :)

Tuesday Truths


Welcome back to another edition of Tuesday Truths....hope you enjoy! 

- Scott worked super late last night and I hated it. The car business has taken care of our family but the sacrifices he makes day in and day out is crazy. 

- Our oldest daughters phone is broke and I HATE it. Thank goodness for her being able to call on facebook. Laura get your phone fixed!!

- I can't stand Donald Trump. I know you have probably heard it before.....but I would rather my cat be President than him. I think it just shows how screwed up the Republican party is. And guess what the real kicker is? My mom loves him. | eye roll |

Week in Review 12.24 - 12.28 with DITL Vlog - | Saying Goodbye to Vlogmas |


Hello friends. I hope you are having a wonderful afternoon. :)  I am back today with a new week in review and day in the life vlog. I have been doing vlogmas the past few weeks but Christmas is over I am done with vlogmas. I didn't particularly enjoy it as much this year and I don't think I will sign up for that again next year. However, I do enjoy the weekly vlogs. I plan on continuing to vlog a little each day to share in a weekly vlog so don't worry...I am going to continue vlogging just not as much! So here is how the last few days days went. Hope you enjoy!

Sunday Inspiration | Self Care |

I don't feel like I have truly taken care of myself in a long long while. Don't get me wrong. I still shower and do all the things that need to get done around the house. I still am making videos almost daily and I try to give my family as much attention as I can. But is that really taking care of myself? I think not. In 2015 I feel like I have been hanging on by a string a lot of days and all aspects of my life have suffered through bumpy times, depression, and even anger sometimes. 

I have carved out little time in my life to actually take care of me. What does mean? Anything and everything from painting my nails to getting on the treadmill. In a lot of ways, I have just been going with the motions of day to day life. Living in denial perhaps. I have always known that I had to put the oxygen mask on myself first to be able to take care of the rest of my family but putting it into motion everyday is a little harder. As I think about 2015, I can't help but to think of all the things I want to change going into 2016. I don't want to carry any of the negativity into the new year. I don't want keep putting my own self care and well being on the back burner for anyone else. I don't want to make a list of excuses of why this didn't happen or I didn't get to that. I simply want to change it.

Vlogmas 2015 DITL Video → | Holiday Prep |


Hello friends! I hope you are having a great morning. Today I am back with another Vlogmas video for you guys! Vlogmas or Vlogidays ( last year ) can mean different things to different youtubers and or bloggers. Most of the time it means a daily vlog each day. I am kinda going to go at it in my own way this year. I am hoping to vlog daily but I will sometimes be switching it up! I am not going to announce any changes before hand but instead we will just roll with it together in the moment. So here's to the holidays with some new Vlogmas videos. Hope you enjoy!

* Belated Tuesday Truths



Welcome back to another edition of Tuesday Truths. It's actually Wednesday Truths because I just didn't get it up yesterday!  Hope you enjoy, 

- I found some really cute inexpensive gifts that I am giving out for Christmas to some friends and family. I think they will love them! 

- Donald Trump is running his mouth again. Yada Yada Yada....nothing new...all bullshit. 

- I have been loving having my phone on silent. It just reminds me of a time when I wasn't so overloaded with emails, messages, social media. It's felt good. 

- The boys are getting along at the moment. I don't think either wants to get grounded again. Especially over their holiday break from school. It's still like pulling teeth to get them to do their chores right but going to back to basics has really helped. Showing them exactly what to do, listing it out for them and checking it does them good. If they want a allowance then it has to be done right. 

- It's cold here. I seriously do not like the cold weather. Yesterday I was cold from the top of my head to my toes and nothing helped but a long hot bath.

- I watched the season finale of Homeland last night. It left me hanging and I am so so glad there will be a season 6. Sadly it won't be back on until October of 2016. At least we know that the CIA wants Carrie back and Quinn is going to live! :) It says something when a show leaves me hanging at the end of each show dying to know what happens next. I think this show might be the best thing Showtime has going for them.

Tuesday Truths


Hello friends. I'm back with another edition of Tuesday Truths. This is just one of 3 posts going live today...hope you enjoy! 

:: For the life of me I can't find a fast easy way to delete all the pictures off my iphone. I guess it's just going to take hours to get them all off. I think they did it that way so we would be forced to spend minute after minute...hour after hour deleting photos or we can buy more storage. They're not fooling anyone.
