life, lifestyle

Meaning behind my blog name…

I had a hard time coming up with a blog name, no matter what I came up with just didn’t sound catchy or good enough. I finally came up with one but then completely changed it to what it is now…Thoughts with Suz. And it’s exactly what it is, it’s my thoughts…obviously my blog is about my life blog along with lifestyle so it just made sense to name it that and I really like it! I blog about my struggles with my weight, about infertility, I share recipes, talk about life, my obsession with coffee, tea, and Disneyland and now my puppy! I hope you can follow me along this journey!

Top 5 pet peeves.

IMG_6260

We all have a few things that we just cannot stand; well here are 5 pet peeves of mine…

  1. People who remember and reach out to you when they need something!
  2. Parents who let their kids talk back to them and let them get away with things.
  3. People who are always late.
  4. People who talk behind your back but are crazy nice and sweet to you.
  5. When people make unnecessary comments.

What are some of your pet peeves?

If I could have any job in the world…

IMG_6256

For the past 12 to 15 years, being a nanny is what my career has been and probably will be for the next few years too. However, what I would love to be is a stay at home mom once we have a baby, but I don’t just want to be a stay at home mom. I would love to be able to work from home as a blogger and a photographer. At one point in my life, I wanted to become a book editor so I actually wouldn’t mind if I did that part time while being a stay at home mom. I am such a homebody that I would love nothing more than being at home and working from home.

Someone I miss dearly…

IMG_6188I think now more than ever, we are missing so many people; I know I miss so many in my life that I cannot see or visit right now. However, the person that I absolutely miss the most is my sweet angel grandma who sadly passed away. My grandma passed away last year and the last time I saw her in person was in September of 2015 before she moved back to Armenia. This sweet grandma of mine was the one I was the closest too, the one who I am so similar too, the one with the biggest heart ever. I miss her so so much.

Meet my puppy!

Meet my precious baby girl Daisy Lou! She is a toy Maltipoo and only weighs 2 pounds as of a week ago. I got her Sunday May 3rd when she was 8 weeks old! I had a boy Maltipoo who sadly passed away last year after he got really sick and he was 9 years old. I always wanted a girl dog to name her Daisy and I’m so glad I finally found her! I’m so in love with Daisy and I cannot wait to see her grow. 🥰

When you are feeling down…

IMG_6180

We all have those days where we are feeling very down, sad and just depressed. I have been having them a lot more recently the past few years and I still struggle with how to really get out of it; however, I always have a few things that I like to do to improve my mood.

  • Spend some time alone.
  • Spend time with family and/or friends.
  • Read a book.
  • Watch a movie.
  • Exercise
  • Get some fresh air.
  • Take a nice long bath.
  • Take a nap.
  • Write down your feelings.

  1. My husband – he’s my everything and I cannot imagine life without him.
  2. My family – this whole safe at home situation has brought us all so much more closer and I’m forever thankful for it.
  3. My baby girl Daisy – we recently got a toy maltipoo puppy less than 2 weeks ago named Daisy and I am so obsessed with her and feel so blessed to have her in our lives.
  4. My health – yes I have some health and hormone issues but I feel blessed that it is not much worse.
  5. My job – I know so many people have lost their jobs due to COVID-19 and I feel thankful that I still have a job and am still working.

Struggling to be positive.

IMG_6128

I feel like the past few years I have become such a negative person and I hate it. I have been struggling with trying to change that about myself because I really don’t like it. I miss being so happy and positive and full of self esteem. Right now, I’m constantly thinking so negative about myself, and everyone around me….it’s so bad! I have been trying very hard the past few weeks to try and be better but its been hard. I have considered maybe going to therapy and so I’m debating about it because part of me thinks that maybe that will help.

My day as a nanny…

IMG_5976

Being a nanny is so rewarding and amazing; but it can also be kinda hard. It is a lot of responsibility and it requires a TON of patients. I currently work for a family that has two adorable little girls ages 4 and almost 6. My day to day looks so different now while we are going through this COVID-19 situation than when life was “normal,” believe it or not right now it is more exhausting than ever before. I come home so so tired everyday and barely have any energy left to do anything else. I wanted to share what a typical day as a nanny is like (at least for me.)

8am – arrive at work

8am to 9:30 am – get girls dressed and feed them breakfast.

9:30 am to 10 am- oldest one has online zoom session and youngest will play with toys.

10 am – 10:40 – we either go for a walk around the neighborhood or we will play in the backyard.

10:45 to 10:55 am – snack time

11 am – 1pm – zoom class for both girls and then homework for the older one.

1pm – lunch

2 pm to 3:30 – outside play time; sometimes we will go swimming if its hot and sometimes we will even do Zumba class, or yoga class that I find on YouTube.

3:30 to 4 pm – iPad or show time

4 to 5 pm – bath time for girls.

5pm – I’m off!

This is what my day usually looks like now. I do work more hours usually (7:30am to 6pm) but since mom is working from home I’m get 1.5 hours less a day right now.
