Big Spender

Guest written by our friend Gladys Fuentes

I am really good at spending money. As it turns out, I am not as great at saving it. As I’m recently married, this has caused a little bit of problem. When it was just me that was forced to eat Ramen noodles every night, it was no problem. Now that my husband is subjected to eating “leftovers” every single night because I spent just a little too much money on shoes, something has to give. He is not okay with that, unfortunately. I’ve gotten really creative with saving money, and I’ve cut back on my shopping, but I’m not going to completely stop buying adorable kitten heels. Let’s not get crazy. I have started to clip some coupons and shop the “buy one get one” sections at the grocery store, but that hasn’t yielded a huge savings so far. Here’s what has—since I live in Texas, I was able to call SHOP Electricity Rates Texas and have them shop around for a cheaper natural gas provider. This has saved us a lot of money. And my husband no longer sighs every time I say I’m going to the mall. That, my friends, is called a “win-win.”

Girly As Her Mother

Finally, we had the chance to take some family photo shoots but it wasn't that great like i really wanted it to. I had some good shots but i wanted more. If not the kids were being goofy, the father won't be looking or smiling in the camera that made me so frustrated during the photo session. And the other thing is, i really don't like indoor photo shoot, i would prefer an outdoor one because the background won't be as limited as the indoor shots.

Anyway, i am still glad that despite of the silly shots i got, i was still able to get at least two or three good ones. And after the family session, i took some snaps of myself, might as well that i was still in a good mood to do the photo shooting even for just by myself alone. But, when hubby saw this picture of mine, he mentioned that if only our little girl is with us right now, she would have been as girly as her mother. That, made me sad all of the sudden and made me cry. That's for sure, no doubt about that, that she will be prettier than me, in fact. But anyway, i know she is in a better place and she is happy with HIM. I love her dearly but GOD must love her more.

Home Insurance

Is your home insured? Well, sometimes that we are just too confident that nothing will happen to our house because we thought it is in a safe place and the neighborhood are just too friendly. But what if while you are away something might happen, like it could be you might have forgotten to turn off the candle, or maybe left some appliances turned on while you were in a hurry trying not to be late in your meeting or gathering or whatever. These are just some examples that could cause fire or permanent damage to your house.

That's why it is a smart move to have a home insurance. Because if you have it, you are more comfortable leaving your house unattended. Even if you will be gone for so long, there will be nothing to worry about because you have your house insured. Of course you have to make sure that everything is unplugged and candles were lit off before you leave, so when you come back, your house is just as how you left it. It is better to be safe than be sorry later on, and if accidents may occur, you feel bad as much because insurance will take care of you.

I Am Going To College!

One of my dreams is to finish my studies, really i have been thinking about it over and over in several times so i can think it over if it's really needed or not for me to to finish at least a four year course degree. Hubby is been so supportive with my plans though, i have no problem with him, he in fact, is the one who's keep on convincing me to start it soon as i can. But then since we have little boys still that i need to take care of full time, i seem can't fit any extra schedule in my daily routine.

Anyway, hubby said that soon as i get my citizen taken cared of hopefully next year, then i will start to look for a good school where i can find the degree i would want to finish and also not so far from where we live so i can easily get to my school without a traffic hassle. I have to agree with hubby, he is so right about that, so i don't have to rush everything up since i got not much of an extra time, i just can't afford to be late in school.

And on the other note, i am happy that i realized that there is a school loans that can possibly help me with the finances i need in school. Although hubby said he will try his best to have me finish my degree and he'll work hard for it, still i think that it would be a good idea if i have a student loan since they won't be charging so much interest since it is obviously for student enable for them to finish the degree they are taking.

I would say that this is really a big help for the students. Some of them maybe able to afford all the expenses at school but most of them are working hard just to have some savings that they can use whenever there is unexpected expenses. So by having school loans, it wouldn't be so bad to keep going and thinking on how are they supposed to find financial resources. With this, i think it is just a great idea and big break for the students who are looking forward to finish their studies to the university they are in to and will be able to stand on their own feet in the future.

Superhero Cufflinks

I have no idea that you can now actually get a superhero cufflinks. I remember when my father was still alive and during those time that he had some gatherings to attend, he always put button looking like to his long sleeve shirt, which i had no idea what it was then until i grew up and realized it's cuff links. I am glad that i found a store that sells different kinds of styles because i am planning to buy some pair for my son. I want him to look good when there's special occasion especially when he receives award from his school :)

Specialist Home Insurance

Some people may have not do it but most people does. It's probably because they find it unnecessary to do it or it might be because they have no budget for it. For us, it's really important to have a specialist home insurance because we never know what will happen to the house. No matter how safe we think we are doing, there is always an unexpected happenings that might come. It'll be scary to even think about it but we'd rather be prepared than feeling sorry afterwards and realizing we're not even fully prepared for it.

So enable for us to ensure our future and our kids's as well, we insured our house to make sure that we still get our house back whatever happens. Especially that our kids are still young and we cannot afford to lose a house if ever things will be hard on us, which we hope not though. We all hope for the best right? But we also have to be prepare for things that we definitely don't expect to happen.

Christmas Is Almost Here!

Merry Christmas ^_^
Is your Christmas tree up and ready for Christmas day yet? I would assume though, since the waiting is almost over, Christmas day is only few fingers count away. Our tree is been up since even before the thanksgiving day and the kids are all excited what they can find under the tree on the very day. Well, actually, we haven't shopped yet for them but we'll try our best with my husband to get the shopping done before the Christmas eve, lol!

Anyway, in case i won't be able to greet you all a Merry Christmas on the very day, i would like to grab the chance now and greet you all a happy holiday and may you have a successful new year of 2012! ♥

Maternity Clothes

The maternity clothes nowadays are just as stylish as can be. During the time that i got pregnant with my kids, i was looking for a stylish maternity clothing but could not find one at the mall or some boutiques i have been to. Now that i can't get pregnant anymore, i saw this online store where to get this beautiful and fun style of maternity clothing, oh darn! I just love the dresses and some other accessories! Too bad i didn't learned about this before. But oh well, at least i get to suggest this store to some of my friends who are expecting! :)

NoMoreRack Reviews

Are you about done with your holiday shopping yet? Did you make sure that you already bought everything that you want for your loved ones to open this coming Christmas day? Well, i am sure most of you are still busy thinking what to buy or may already have been buying the best gifts for your special loved ones to have. Everyone wants to give something, right? So do i! I myself is not even starting to shop for my three boys in the house yet, and Christmas is fast approaching!

So, because i only have limited budget for this coming holiday, since i only work at home, that means, i am not making a big amount of income, like most people do. So for me to make sure that i get a good deals and at the same time it's worth getting it for my men, i am currently shopping at NoMoreRack which is happened to be that there is a rumor before that it is a nomorerack scam, just like some of those online scam store. But i can guarantee you that this is not a scam at all! A friend of mine confirmed it because she bought some great deals presents from it and she got the items no problem. And now she already wrapped those presents up she got and put them under the Christmas tree! So, i don't think that there is a scam in this store.

I honestly didn't believe the so good discounted sale items first, i was thinking that "no way" there is such a good deals like what they have in NoMoreRack. But when a friend told me that there is no joke about it, then it got me so excited! Because the first main reason is, i get good deals with the things i have been looking for, for my three dearly love of my life in the house, and also, they are not just ordinary items, they are also branded durable items that are on sale! This really solved my problem about my limited budget, and it makes me happy knowing that i will be getting the things i want for my loved ones without spending a lot of money! So, if you are like me that wants to save cash in your pocket, why don't you read this nomorerack reviews for you to see it yourself that there is such a good sale like this going on today? Hurry though! You might miss the items you were looking for!

Prepaid Debit Cards

Eversince i got married to my better half, he's the one that is controlling our budget in the house. It's a little embarrassing to admit but i should, that i am not very good when it comes to budgeting, my husband is. He takes care most of the bills we pay and takes care of the grocery budget as well, although we all go together but he is the one that controls the expenses.

So because i am bad when it comes to handling money, eventhough i have my own credit cards, still i hardly use it that much because i am afraid i might get carried away and will realized that i spent over the limit. So what hubby did was, he gave me the prepaid debit cards so i can use it whenever i go shopping with my friends or maybe just by myself alone. It's a good idea though because the debit card is reloadable and it's accessible to almost anything i want to get.

How cool is that? Hubby really is a clever partner! By giving me the prepaid debit card, that way i don't have to spend too much, and it has limit to what i can only spend. All he have to do is just put some money to it and i am good to use it! Hubby said that when the kids are grown, that's what exactly he'll do to them. He'll give them the prepaid ones, so he won't pass out soon as he sees the charges of their credit cards when it comes haha! For we both are sure that these boys will be spending more than what we think they will. Especially now that the teenagers are more outgoing and likes to have some fun more often. Also, we have to make sure that we give them enough for their needs in school, and we have to make sure that they will be going to a good and reputable university here nearby. So enable for us to control their spending, hubby has the most greatest idea of planning to give them the same as what i got right now.

My Wishlist For Christmas

My wishlist is not even done yet but i am doubting that all of them will be mine this Christmas. Well, at least i made my wishlist and hoping Santa would grant all of it, lol! I don't think so though, maybe a couple of them would be enough to make me happy and contented. Anyway, the other day i saw the ipad2 is marking their price down a little and i have been wishing to have one myself. I asked hubby if i could include it to my wishlist and he said he'll see if he can get it for me.

So because there is a big chance that i might get it this year, if he would say yes to me, i would be the most happiest woman in the world, lol! Soon as i order that gadget, i can apply the free shipping code so my santa claus won't be charged more with the shipping fee. Isn't that so great? I am helping my santa for him to save some cash in his pocket, lol! I can't wait to own one and i am sure that my santa claus won't fail me, haha!

Tired Little One

When it comes to my little one, what's the most thing that i love about him is when he is tired, he doesn't whine and cry. Eversince when he was a baby, he just wants to be held and soon after i give him my warm hug and cuddle, he'll fall asleep quickly. This picture below was taken during summertime. He was worn out from the outing we had in the pool, and he surely had a blast that day.

He was hesitant to touch the water at first but then soon as he kind of used to it, i could hardly get him out from the water! Silly baby! We stayed there the whole day, the two boys had so much fun and wanted to do it again next summertime. And also, one thing that i love about this boy is, he sleeps so peacefully once he is in a deep sleep, it doesn't matter how loud or quiet his surroundings can be, once he is asleep, he won't be waken up and be bothered by anything.

Cheap Car Insurance

Enable to meet our needs, we make sure that everything is under control with our budget. We always have a list of the things we need to get and what bills do we need to pay for and also to control it as possible as we can. Such as the necessities that we need to pay like Cheap Car Insurance. Although we got it with affordable price, we are contented of what we have because it covers pretty much of what we need for an insurance.

Hubby said that it's not because some other insurance are expensive, they are the best. There are also some affordable insurance like what we currently have can just cover as much as what the expensive insurances can. I am happy though that my husband is being wise when it comes to these things, because he can't definitely trust on me about this matter, i have no knowledge when it comes to things like insurance. But, hubby told me that i really have to know and learn everything, which i do agree. But for now, i am still depending on my dear husband because he takes care most of things.

House Designs

Speaking of looking for a beautiful and elegant looking house designs, i just found a very good samples of display villages melbourne. They have a different kinds of styles of gorgeous looking house to choose from. Whether you have a small or big family, they have lots of choices. Since that we only have two kids, i am planning to have their rooms downstairs, so they can have their own privacy when they grow up and wanted to have their own little space. I am pretty sure that the kids will appreciate it even more when they become teenagers.

Our room should be upstairs, so we can easily access everything upstairs such as living room and the kitchen. Really, i am daydreaming about this house i have been waiting for it to be in reality. But since that all this is still just a plan, i might as well, browse more house designs that i would love to be look like for our own.

Land For Sale

We're actually reconsidering of moving to a new house. Hubby asked me already regarding this matter but i just thought we didn't need to since i love this house, but i guess not anymore started when there's problems going on here that i really can't forget. Moving to a new house will make us feel better and surely will have a new beginning.

So, because of our plan to move, we have been searching some land for sale. We want to design our own house and make it more simple yet elegant looking. It has been my dream to design our own house and i am excited to think that i would soon come true. I honestly can't wait to have it fulfill, so we can live the new peaceful home. The kids will have their each own rooms and will have the basement as a guest room, or it could be couple more rooms. I can only imagine how beautiful our house would be.

Home Builders

One thing to consider when building a new house is to find a good home builders. You have to make sure that company has a good reputation and can stand to their promise of how long or quick they can build the house. I just feel sorry for my friend because their roof isn't done yet, they have been waiting for it to get it done especially now that the temperature is going way down low. For now they are only using portable electric heater because they can't afford to use the furnace for it will surely cost them a big bill.

I am just hoping that their roof will be finished very soon. Not to mention they have small kids that needs a warm place, and they are only depending on to their portable electric heater. So, i told my friend that she should keep on following up the buider company so they can have a warm and finished house before Christmas comes.

Filipino Veggies

There are really times that i get sick and tired eating meats, since that's the only thing that i can quickly get here in the grocery store aside from their vegetables that i seldom cook and eat. Anyway, i am glad that i got the chance to go to the Asian store last week and bought some Filipino vegetables that i really love to have.

And i had a very delicious dinner last night and also a good lunch today eating my leftovers. I am vegetable lover, i sometimes would prefer eating veggies rather than eating meat, which i think my kids got it from me, they don't eat meat that much and can hardly chew on it, especially the beef, so gewey and tender.

Flexible PCB

During times when i need some money in my pocket to buy something that i really want or maybe something that i would like to buy for my kids, i just wished i have my own job so i can do all get the things i want to. Which also reminds during those days that i was still single and have a really nice job that makes flexible PCB, for main circuit boards of a computer. I had that job for quite awhile and sure it was a fun and lovable job, compare to all the jobs that i had.

I went back there once but the arrangement of the production line was totally different since i left the company. Still, they were making those flex and i am happy that the company is still in progress. It's not just the company that i miss there, also the people that i worked with, they are nice and worth to keep as friends.

New Baby Girls Clothes

I can't help myself not to be sad whenever i see some of my friends from social networking website posting their baby girls's pictures. If only my little girl made it, she could have the most prettiest new baby girls clothes i can buy for her. I really love to see baby girls wearing nice dresses especially when it is so stylish. It't not that i don't love my boys, of course i love with all my heart. It's probably normal to every mothers to long their angel like me that lost a child.

My sister had her baby girl and because i have none, i always end up buying clothes for her instead. She liked all the dresses i gave her, and what i like about her the most is she is so appreciative. I just adore my niece, she is really a bubbly kind of girl and could take the stress off from you. That reminds me, Christmas is fast approaching, i guess it's time for me to give her some nice dresses again :)

Pool Barriers

The last hotel where we stayed during our vacation has an outdoor pool. Too bad it is cold to enjoy the pool during this season. My boys were dying to splash in there but i told them it is not a good idea to get wet especially they will be staying outside that long. I feel sorry for both of them though, all they did was looking at the pool and leaning by the pool barriers. If it's only summer, then i would not stop them, or if it's indoor so we all can enjoy it just like what we had during our trip to Oregon.

Kindle Books

Has anyone of you or a family member of yours got kindle books already? I myself would love to have one, but right now, it is a little too much for our budget. So instead of buying it myself, i have been entering some contests that has this kindle book as a prize. I am dying to get one for myself though, hope i will win. Or if not, i might have to get one for myself this coming holiday season since mostly things that we buy when there's holiday are low priced :)

Hubby's Big Day

It was a simple celebration i prepared for my better half yesterday. Since he never liked the idea of having a party here in the house especially for his big day, so i just made some quick preparation for us to enjoy. Also so we don't have to eat left overs for days, lol! Hubby was of course happy when he came home from work seeing my little surprise for him.

He doesn't want a big cake, since just four of us are going to eat it, i ordered a small one layered round cake. And the other thing is, he doesn't want me to put numbers on his cake either. So for him to have something to blow, i put three candles on his cake which represents the love of his life who dearly loves him so much. The candles was Mommy, MD and DM. It was a simple celebration, yet it was memorable for just four of us celebrated Daddy's very special day of his life :)

Safe Visa Card To Use

Have you experienced when you shopped and there was a problem you encountered with the charges of your credit card? Or maybe a scam going on to the store where you just purchased something that you like? Well, anyway, good thing that didn't happen to me yet and i definitely doesn't want to experience that, that would really freak me out. You'll get overcharged by something you didn't even purchase, that's a scam alright.

Well, anyway, if you want something that you really like to have and doesn't trust the website or the store where you are going to purchase that something, i tell you that Green Dot credit card will come in handy. Why? Because, it is a safe credit card to use and what's the most advantage of it is reloadable. You can load some money in it as much as you like, and you can use it wherever you go. It is a prepaid visa that you can use and if you happen to fail to load some money in it, there will be no overdraft fees that you will be paying. How cool is that? You also can use it for paying your bills online and some other things that you most do. So because of this great news, i have to get one for myself. To keep me from scam and to keep track of my expenses.

Triangle Direct

If you are a curious blogger like me, you might want to check this Triangle Direct out! From there you can find thousands of network companies that might catch your attention, or the better reason is, it will give you good news by making more money through blogging. Although i am already happy enough of what i make even though it isn't that much like what i used to make before, but then, still i am glad that i am getting something, the fact that i am a stay home mother with two boys. I don't have to leave them and go to work.

Electronic Cigarettes

Some people just can't stop bad habits. Such as drinking alcohol or most of them can't just easily quit smoking. Although there are lots of programs that are willing to help smokers to quit from smoking, still they find the urge of smoking one until they later on realized that they end up going back to bad habit again.

For me, i think it is better for the people to buy electronic cigarettes. That way they still can enjoy their habit but then they are also getting themselves free from nicotine that cigarettes produce to their body which is very unhealthy and it could cause internal organ damage. So using this electronic one, is the safest way to satisfy their urge to smoke. That way they get to enjoy smoking and staying away from bad chemicals that could possibly cause death.

Saving Money

Contribution by Saul Martin

This economy is making so many people stop and think about spending money. My husband and I have always tried to live within our means, so when things started to get tight financially for all of our friends and family, we were able to slightly adjust our budget with no big issues. My mom, however, has always been a big spender. She has more credit cards than I can count and has hit the maximum limit on most of them. She owes literally thousands of dollars to credit card companies. She loves to shop and does not have impulse control. That’s why I was surprised when she told me she had been searching online for Shop Electricity Rates Texas to see how she could save money on their energy bill. I guess everybody is trying to find ways to save money. We have always had fixed-rate energy and it is nice to have a predictable energy bill each month. Maybe my mom can save some money on her energy bill and she will be able to apply that money to her credit card bills.

No Bullying! No Kids Deserves It!

When your child gets bullied, what are you going to do? Especially when the bullies are way bigger than your child, a lot older and supposed to be wiser. Sigh! That's what happened to my son today. It was his very first time getting bullied by 5th grader kids while they're in the bus. He was so upset and crying when he came home. I asked him what happened why he was mad, and he told me everything what happened.

He ought to show us his project that he did at school. According to him, it was an Indian hat that native American wears. He was all so excited when he was about to come home because he was going to show that to us. But, that hat he was talking about was wrecked by those brats. I asked him if they could just possibly accidentally wrecked his work or did they really do it in a purpose. And he said yes, they did it in a purpose because he was holding the hat and they grabbed it from him and wrecked it. My son is a quiet and a very friendly boy, he prefers to be by himself rather than being with those bully kids.

This makes me mad really! Just so upsetting! But then there's nothing i can do until Monday comes. I have to let the bus driver know about it and also the school principal so they can put action to it. Take note! Those bullies are 5th graders! They are way bigger than my 1st grader! I just don't want my son being bullied by anybody. No kids deserves to be bullied anyway. And there's no parents like to see their child getting bullied by other kids, especially when the bullies are bigger. This is the first, and i am hoping it will be the last.

Family Getaway Plan

Going to another country is one of my dreams to fulfill. Especially when hubby talks about it. He lived in Europe for several years and he said how wonderful it was to be there. The place is beautiful and the surroundings is unbeatable. And now, he wants to roam the Canada. Which, it is an exciting plan for me because i myself never have been to that country. I love traveling! And so as my husband, that's probably why we are meant to be together as husband and wife because we both love to travel.

Anyway, he was planning to go and stay there for at least two weeks or so. He has heard a lot of good feedback mainly in Airdrie. And because we will stay there for awhile, it would be a good idea if we'll have to look for a good deal Airdrie apartments for rent that we can find. I am sure that we can easily get one without a problem. There's no exact date when are we going there yet, but then, just thinking about it makes me so excited already. I can't wait to see the place with my own naked eyes. I know for sure that my family and i are going to have lots of fun during our stay there.

Addiction Treatment Centers

I would say that America has a lot of advantage programs that you can find here. Just like those addiction treatment centers, they offer a great help to those people especially to the teenagers who gets involved with bad habits such as drugs and alcohol. That's a good thing that there's something like this that has full support of making the kids's life better and getting back on the right track. Though, i am hoping that most kids should know better and learn from what they see to those who got involved and wants to get rid of it from their system.

Tabletop Displays

What is the most fun part here in our town is during September. They have this celebration they called "Peach Days" and that is the perfect time that you can see lots and lots of tabletop displays that some seller show. Some of them are fun to look at it and some of them are mainly for the company to show to the possible clients what are they offering. It's really neat to see all those displays that you see. Also, there's some other things that you can find there aside from those displays.

Ready For Photography Business

I am so happy that my page in the networking website has now growing community. I love to see people liking my page, it makes my heart melt and gives me the sweetest smile ever. Lately, i have been so hooked up with portraiture photography and i am planning to take it seriously. In fact, i just placed my order yesterday at of my studio photography lighting kit. I am very excited and anxious to receive it. I am expecting to have it by tomorrow.

I can just tell that i am ready to start my own business, though some people might say i am not fully experienced yet, but i already have enough knowledge to take pictures to start a small business. Though i must admit, photography is like going to a class, you learn something new everyday, through experience. I love photography, whatever kind of photography it is, my most favorites are macro and portraiture. So, that's why i am always practicing almost everyday with my little one. He's the immediate model i can grab, and he's free, lol! Anyway, here's some of his photographs taken just the other day in our backyard.

Scrub Clothing

It was close but not too bad yesterday when i got late from my doctor's appointment. I am glad i got there just about 5 minutes late, it was bad enough but the receptionist said, it's alright since they have no patients next to my scheduled time. Anyway, i loved all the nurses's uniforms lately. They have now a new cute design of their scrubs that even little kids will notice it. So when i got home, i searched the scrubs they wore just for fun and found all of it at

I just love how they always come up with cute and stylish designs to their scrub clothing. It looks so nice and it sure can caught someone's attention. It isn't bright colored ones though, it's the design that will make you look twice to the scrubs. That is one good idea though, unlike before nurses wears white uniforms which for some reason, it makes the kids scared to go to the hospital or clinics. At least now, the kids are more comfortable seeing nurse or doctors wearing fun designed scrubs.

Sexy Christmas Lingerie

Christmas is again fast approaching. And hubby hates it so much! LOL! He said that he is going to be broke again this year with all the wishes from his dear family. Anyway, i already told hubby what would i like to get this Christmas, and of course i wouldn't tell him what i am going to give him, it should be a surprise and i do know what he needs. A nice jacket. Shhhh. Don't tell this to him that i told you guys, lol!

As we were talking about it earlier, i mentioned it to him that i also want a sexy christmas lingerie. The last time he gave me one was before we got married. He went to my place and handed me my cute and sexy lingerie with one a pair of underwear. So, i said, maybe it is time for him to buy me a new one and i already saw one that i would really really love to have. It's a black one that is not so daring and yet, it is so comfortable for sleeping. It isn't that much too that's why i could just squeeze that in to my wishlist which is soon will be granted by my dearest santa hubby haha!

Plus Size Dress

Plus size dress nowadays are just as stylish as those dress that are for small framed ones. In fact, i find more stylish clothes in bigger size rather than in petite size. I was shopping earlier and found some nice and pretty styles of it. I was wishing that they also have the same style i want from the big sizes for the petite size because i am small framed woman. But unfortunately, they ran out. Too bad though, i wish i went there a little early so i could at least get two kinds.

Anyway, since i have a friend that's heavy kind of woman, she surely would love those dress i was talking about. She also loves collecting dresses like me. I guess that's why we are good friends because we have something in common. She always asks me where i usually get my clothes, and of course because she is my friend, i also tell her and sometimes take her with me whenever i go shopping if she is off from her work and free for that day.

I am so glad that i finally got to order the studio lighting photography kit for myself. I am honestly excited and anxious to receive the items so i can start to practice more on how to control the light. The said items should get here on Thursday, and i will be waiting by the door to get it. Anyway, also i went to the thrift store, i bought some good good deal props that i can use on my photography business soon.

Speaking of photography business, soon when i am experienced enough, i surely will have to enter the wedding photo shoots field. I really love taking pictures of newly weds, either funky, silly or serious type of photography. Also, i love taking pictures of the bling blings of the bride. The clothes, the shoes, the bouquet, and especially the celtic wedding jewelry. I am just hoping that i can get an opportunity to do that very soon. I am also excited to do that, because taking pictures is my passion.

B&W Portrait By Yours Truly

I hardly go out now unlike before. I get to go out only when there's occasion or celebration at someone's house. And lately we had the gathering during the very thrilling and nerve racking night of the very famous Filipino boxer namely, Manny Pacquiao. Also, that is the time we got to be together again with my selected friends and eat the prepared delicious food we all prepared.

But, anyway, i was able to wear the clothes i recently bought from the store that i really really love. And i was so happy when i went there because they have summer items for sale. Obviously, they want to get rid of their summer clothes because winter is already here. So here's the clothes i was talking about. And oh! I need to say this, that i rarely convert my photos into B&W because i don't really appreciate the beauty of it, but then this one turned out to be so beautiful (the photo of course, not me. But it could be me, if you will insist, lol!). So here it is :D

San Antonio Orthodontist

My first grader showed me his growing tooth that replaced the one he lost a month ago. He thought that it is going to fall off once again. So i explained it to him that once he lose one tooth, surely there is going to be a replacement since that was his first tooth that fell out. And i also told him that he should quit sucking his thumb so his teeth won't be deformed. I am seeing some signs already that his teeth are going to be crooked if ever he still continues doing his bad habit.

I have seen a lot of kids doing that though, so i guess it wasn't just me who's dealing this with my boy. I keep reminding him but keeps on forgetting it. I already tried many tactics on how to get rid of his habit but to no avail, i always fail. So, because of that, i am thinking that there is a big possibility that he will be wearing braces soon when he's grown. And that made me searched from google about braces. And i saw this San Antonio Orthodontist that does the fantastic job regarding about braces. I wish they are nearby. Seeing these models of theirs to this site made me think that they did a pretty good job on correcting these teenagers's teeth. Oh well, i am sure my son is going to wear one soon, and i have to find a nearest orthodontist i could find in town.

Edmonton Apartments

If i were to choose where to get away this coming Thanksgiving holiday, i would choose the Canada country. Why? Because hubby asked me if we ever get the chance to get away within three weeks from now, he'll let me choose whether Canada or Arizona again. So i prefer Canada since we both have never been to that country. Not to mention i have lots of friends over there to meet. One of my friends is residing at Edmonton Apartments and told me that if ever we will go there, she would be so glad to have us their in their place.

She said that the place is quiet and peaceful just like our place here. Also, the scenery is just amazing and breathtaking. Oh, how she described the place made me even more excited to visit the place. I so can't wait to be there and see it in my own eyes and capture every corner of it. I love to see breathtaking nature scenery, it makes me feel that i am special that i get to see the amazing place created by someone who is very special above. And of course taking a picture of it is the only way i can tell everybody that i have been to that certain place.

Nurse Scrub Uniforms

When you know someone's loved one is about to succeed with their dream, don't you feel happy as well? I do! My friend's daughter is going to graduate as a nurse soon and we, as her mom's friends can't also wait to see her wearing hospital scrubs uniforms. We are all sure that she will look good as just as the others that will be wearing it as well soon as they graduate. For my opinion, this kind of degree is indeed a brag about. I've seen her how she worked hard for it just to make her dream come true and now that she is about to finish her course, we're just proud of her just like her parents.

We, as friends decided to buy her some pairs of nurse scrubs uniform soon as she graduates and get a job. We are so certain that it won't be long soon after she graduates, she'll get the job that fits to her course. She is one hardworking girl and we can just guarantee that she will get the job quick. So for her, we are just sending some love to her and all the support she needs. We are just excited for her just like her. And we are wishing her all the best as she steps into another ladder of her destiny :)


Winter is definitely approaching now, i can just tell by the cold breeze coming from up north. And a friend of mine invited me if we go up on the mountain to go skiing. Since i have never done that before, it got me excited somehow to try it myself. Also, it would be a good chance to go up in the mountain and everything i will see is all white and it's the perfect chance to take lots of photos since i am obsessed with photography. Of course i would love to keep my things inside my durable dakine backpack so it will sealed from moisture and wetty kind of weather. I am excited really and i can't wait! :)

Technical Trainer Jobs

If only i am graduate to any kind of technical courses. I guess i would have been just as good as the others. There's lots of Technical Trainer Jobs i have seen lately being advertised and it makes me think about my little brother, he's very good in this kind of field. It makes me feel too bad that he is not here and he can't take the advantage of getting this kind of job. He's very excited when i told him that if only he is here, he would have been making a pretty good money with his special skills.

After Ages, I Shopped Again!

After ages of not going out, i mean really a decent going out with friends and went shopping to the mall, i finally was able to do that yesterday with my best friend. It was a fun day out because we also meet up a friend who lives nearby where the mall is. I wasn't planning to spend some but i could not help but got tempted by those nice shirts from Hollister and some other stores that are on sale. I love to shop a lot but the problem is, i got no money to shop all the time, lol!

I spent enough for me to cover in my credit card and fortunately i got few blogging tasks that needs to be posted. That should take care of my bills. I always try not to overspend because i am still working on paying my visa until it's all paid off. Although hubby is helping me with it but i will try my best to pay it from my own little income. Anyway, i know that some of you may know a fellow blogger whose in the photos below. She is a friendly blogger that i met online long time ago already and became a good friend of mine, since it happens to be she lives an hour away from where i live. We had a fun chat yesterday and took her home and she served us good dinner. We should plan to meet up again sometime, it sure is fun!

Plus Size Clothing

If petite women does have the most stylish fashion nowadays, then don't hold your breath about it because also the plus size clothing has it as well just like the small and skinny clothing. I was actually amazed how stylish was that store we went to for us to find a good birthday present for our friend. She is a heavy kind of person that's why we really look for something that we can give her that is also fashionable. And to our surprise with my dear friend, we found a perfect store where to buy what we've been looking for!

Plus size people particularly women can now be as fashionable and more stylish than petite women. Unlike before that they find it so hard to look for best clothing that would fit their size because not too many stores sells clothing for their size. Now, you can now find plenty of stores that are producing different kinds of stunning and gorgeous styles of plus size clothes for the plus size women to wear enable for them to look beautiful and elegant. I am sure that what we bought would look good on to our friend, we are certain that she would be loving it.

Tall Clothes

It was a fun day out yesterday being with my best friend and met another friend who lives nearby to the mall where we went to. We sure had a lot of talking while we hopped from one store to the other. That was my second time being in that store and i would definitely want to go back there sometime again with of course my friends again. I never thought i would enjoy yesterday since i got not much of a budget to really shop for the things that i want. But i was surprised myself that i end up buying things and i didn't spend a whole lot.

Anyway, i would like to go back there soon because i saw a store over there where i can get a present for my dear husband. His birthday is coming up and i want to surprise him with a nice clothing. Since he actually wears very decent kind of clothing so rarely, i would love to have one for him, for him to wear during special occasions or maybe holiday such us Christmas, might as well that his birthday is very close to Christmas time. I've seen a lot of big and tall clothes to that store that would suit him well. Since hubby is a tall guy, though not too big but there are some tall clothes that i would want him to wear and i am just imagining how good he looks soon as wear those.

Play Guitar

Eversince when i was younger, i have been so fascinated with instruments, especially when it is played by someone. One thing that i really love to do before is to learn to play guitar. But seems like the guitar itself doesn't like me haha. I am just hoping that someday maybe one of my two boys will learn how to play instrument so i can just sit in front of them and listen while they play music through guitar, that would be relaxing and awesome. Ahhh, i can only imagine how peaceful to listen the music played by guitar especially when one of my boys will get to play it :)

Garmin Gand Held GPS

Back to those years when we had so many trips with my husband and our first born child, i just wished we had help like garmin hand held gps. Though hubby has his map with us, but it wasn't good enough when we look for the certain place such as the exact address. I find it so hard when we are totally new to the town and don't have any idea about the street names. Unlike here in our place, it is very easy to find the address because it is all numbered according to where it's at like for example south, west, east and north. Some place does have unique names and we can't just easily figured out where is the place we've been looking for.

Fulfill My Dream Someday

It won't be long now and my cousin will be graduating from nursing school. I just admire how she look everytime i chat with her through online and see her wearing her nursing uniforms. I used to dream to be one but then it never happened since my mother honestly cannot support it financially. Now i became a housewife and a mother of my two boys which i never did regret because they worth more than anything else. I maybe have to fulfill my dreams when it is time for me to do my things soon as my kids are all grown up, big enough to take care of themselves.

Early Christmas Hint For Hubby

I was browsing here online yesterday when hubby got home from work. He did the usual routine, he kissed and hugged me and asked me how am i doing. So i answered him the usual thing, i am doing fine and so as the kids, and was just doing my usual thing to do everyday. He looked at to what i was doing here on my computer and asked me why am i browsing the ipad2. I said i really love the features and everything to it, it is not just handy but also very convenient whenever we go for a trip so i don't have to bring this bulky laptop of mine.

I admit that laptop is really useful though, but if when we go for a short vacation, i find it not necessary to bring it with us. Anyway, when it comes to uploading photos, i can just wait though until we get back home. That way, i have plenty of time to process them the way that i like to and then upload it to networking website for my family and friends to see.
But i just love this ipad2. I already gave my sweet husband a hint that this is the one that i would love to have for Christmas, lol! He didn't say a thing but i know hubby already so well. He doesn't like to say things first because he wants to surprise me all the time. Anyway, i don't give too much hopes for that though, i was just wishing that Santa (hubby) got my hint. I have been good all year though, haha!

Walden University's Online Degree Programs

I have been so eager to pursue my studies really. Since i can't really just go out that easy due to my kids, i would like to just continue my studies by enrolling myself to They have quite a few of Walden University's online degree programs that i can get myself into. At first, i was hesitant that i might not like the idea of taking a degree through online though but when i heard a lot of people talking about it how convenient and easy that is, especially for the case like me that i am a mother of two boys that can't just go and do things that i want to do since they still need me.

It's been awhile since i am so anxious of going back to school. Hubby encouraged me to do so but then i was still thinking about it whether i should proceed or not. Hubby said that if i am not so sure yet, i might as well have to learn about Walden some more. So to familiarize what i should take for me to be able to finish it. I am honestly a little confused still, but soon i have to decide if i should go or not. But the eagerness to continue my studies is still in my system though and i should go for it.

Advertising Agency

Introducing your website nowadays isn't as hard it was before anymore. There's lost of websites out there that can actually help your boost your traffic on your website. I have known few but this Advertising Agency is the most top one of my choice. They just don't help you to introduce your website online, they also spread it to the known, or the popular networking websites so it can be easily seen by most online people and there's a big possibility and chance to click your site and subscribe to it.

I already told some of my friends about this and all i hear is a good feedback that their site is indeed getting more and more traffic soon after they got their site hooked to this advertising Agency i was talking about. There's a lot of things that they can do to help you with your website, you just have to go to the site yourself and read what they can offer for you. You will be amazed how awesome the offer is. You might be looking for some help and i tell you, this is just the perfect one you might be looking for long time already. If you have heard about this already then good for you! And if not yet, then see it for yourself now!

Wallet Collections

I am not sure if it's just me or it is a general obsession of women to collect wallets. As far as i noticed that most women collects shoes, purses, bling blings and etc. But not more into wallets, or maybe i just don't really know they do as well. I love collecting wallets myself, i just can't get enough of one or two, i actually want more. Well, anyway, i don't buy those very expensive ones though, those that are just barely out in the market. I am more into those priced by red tag ones.

Also, i have a preference of brands, i love couple of brands that i always keep an eye on. Every time they are on sale, i never miss going to the store and get at least one for myself. Hubby is already complaining why do i have so many wallets and everything in the closet. Well, it's just one of my hobbies, to collect good things. He always tell me that it is not sale if i am not using it, i just kept it on the box and put it away in my closet. He just didn't know that i change my wallets every now and then, or some of it i am keeping it so i can give them to my loved ones when i visit my country hopefully soon.

It's Not His Thing To Do

One thing about shopping online is everything gets so handy and convenient. Just using the tips of your fingers and you're on your way purchasing the items you would like to get for yourself of even for your loved ones. Just like a friend of mine, i sometimes gets jealous of her because she gets flowers almost every now and then from her dearest husband. He just order his flowers from online floral arrangements and send it to his beautiful wife. My husband doesn't really do such things like this, which i find it so sweet but hubby said he's not the kind of person that really like sending flowers to someone, he'd prefer to have me choose what i want and i let him buy it for me. Which i think it make sense, but woman sometimes needs to be caressed by giving her a bouquet of flowers :)

Softway Solutions for Houston web design

I received an email about the Softway Solutions for Houston web design. I am thinking maybe because they saw my photography website and they probably think that it might be best if i have my website to them. I agree to that though but since i am not a professional photographer like what they think i am, i would just settle to what i currently have. Later on, if my hobby will become a business, hopefully, then that would be the perfect time to switch and organize more my photography website.

Filipino Breakfast

When it comes to breakfast, i hardly eat. I always eat my brunch (breakfast and lunch together) since i don't feel like eating early in the morning. Sometimes, i eat wheat bread with peanut butter and jelly with milk but very seldom. Also i love eating blueberry bagel with strawberry cream cheese in it and with my decaffeinated coffee. You cannot really see me eating heavy foods in the morning. I guess i am just getting used to it. Unlike before, when i was still in Philippines, i get starve easy and has to eat in the morning or i will feel so weak.

Anyway, there is a group where i was one of the members that is called "Weekend Photos" created by one of my friends in networking website. I always look forward to every theme she posts because it makes me excited on what to look for and what to shoot. Last week, she released the "Breakfast" theme. I really made a special Filipino breakfast just to upload it on the group. Also, it has been awhile since i ate boneless danggit (dried fish), so i decided to cook some and took a picture of it before i gobbled it up. So here's the breakfast i presented on the group. I am sure that every filipino that'll see this photo, will definitely drool, LOL!

Tropical Storm

Contributed by Johnny Graves

We live in Coastal Georgia just above the Florida line. Recently, a tropical storm was headed our way and we had to evacuate. We were gone just two days but the bad weather did a number on our house. The funny thing is that we have evacuated for really high category hurricanes before and never had any damage. When we got back after the tropical storm our electricity, cable, and telephone had been knocked out of service. There was also some structural damage to the exterior of the house. I had been planning on getting in touch with Direc4U cable kingsland to upgrade our television package, but just decided to go ahead and do it when we got back because I was having a tough time getting in touch with our previous service provider. It took a few weeks for the contractors to fix the structural damage to the house. About a month later everything was back to normal. I am glad that we decided to evacuate and not stay. It seems that a tropical storm can be just as mighty as a hurricane!

Horse Riding Helmets

There is one thing i noticed about the difference of riding the horse between here and in the country where i was born and grew up is not wearing horse riding helmets. I am not sure though if that's what i only noticed or maybe they don't wear in there at all. Maybe because they don't go as fast and they only use the horse more on for sight seeing. Unlike here, they usually ride horses for racing or something else. I do love to ride horse, i haven't really tried it, not once. I might have to try it someday when i get the chance.

Electronic Book

It's not even Christmas yet but then the big brother here in the house already said what he wants to receive to daddy. Although he didn't really said it that Daddy will have to by the electronic book for him, but it is already understood that Daddy has to save some money for it. He said he's sure that Santa will grant his wish this Christmas because he's been a good boy and doing great in school. So daddy said told him to keep it up and Santa(daddy) might give him more surprises.

Toys R Us Coupons

It has been awhile since i haven't shopped. Maybe today i will go somewhere with my kids since i got the birthday present toys 'r us card still in wallet that has given to my little one during his birthday. Plus i also have the toys r us coupons that sure will help me to save more money. I am sure i am not just gonna buy toys for the little one, as expected, the big brother will also choose what he wants soon as we get inside the store. That's why i don't take them to the toy store that often, they empty my pocket everytime we go there lol!

What are cobalt chrome rings

There are a lot of new types of metals used for jewelry. The newest being cobalt chrome rings. These rings have become very popular for a number of reasons. The main reason is the way they are scratch resistant. This appeals to many people. A lot of people switched from platinum to dome palladium rings when the price of metals shot through the roof. Then they found that the palladium rings were pretty much just like platinum, as far as how they held up. They would still scratch. So after dropping a couple grand on a wedding band it was so scratched up six months later.

A lot of people had heard about the cheap tungsten rings that most jewelers were selling. Cheap meaning the price and not the quality of the rings. The only problem was that the tungsten rings were significantly darker than white gold or platinum. This made the pictures of the hands together at weddings look a little funny. Unless trying to be funny no one wants to be funny. So that brought the need for cobalt chrome rings. Chrome was discovered a long time ago but in the last decade had no use in the jewelry industry.

Missing Home

I shouldn't say that i am missing home since i am already home with my family. What i am saying is, i am missing my country where i was born and grew up. Oh how i wish i could fly right now and be with my family over there right at this moment. But then, i can't do that because i have a family of my own to take care of here. The fact that i have a first grader already that needs my full attention especially during every early morning, he needs me so i can take care of everything for him before he goes to school.

Viewing all the pictures we had when we went for a vacation in Philippines last year makes me homesick even more. The food the place and my family of course makes me wanna go home. Just like these picture below, it was taken during when my little one turned a year old with his small birthday cake smashed by him. It was a very simple celebration, yet very memorable. I am looking forward for another vacation there, hopefully two years from now or if i can't take it anymore, maybe next year. Let's just see what's gonna happen, but i am planning to visit my family there two years from now though since i also have a lot of things to do there on that year.

Christmas Party Invitations

Huh? The BER month is just barely coming but then i already got few Christmas Party Invitations. Few of my friends are planning a big party in their house and already spreading the news that they will be having a fun party and of course the table will be filled with sumptuous foods. I already received like 3 or 4 invitations and two of them has the same date! What am i gonna do? Oh well, i'll figure it out where to go, lol! I also have to get the presents ready since we are going to play an exchange gifts, which is always the fun part of the party.

Custom Floor Mats

Wouldn't it be nice if you have all the personalized things that you want to own. Just like personalizing everything in your car. I just found a good website where to buy the chrysler town and country custom floor mats. Not just that though, they also have tons of selections for the customers. And i found the right one that i really want to have for my car. I have to let hubby know about it so he can buy it for me.

Steel Buildings

I have seen a lot of tall buildings was being built but i actually never had the chance to take a closer look how they build it. It was my first time to see how they build steel buildings here in our town. It was an impressive job because the workers used mostly machines to build it. Since we are elevated so high from the ground, the materials they used are good for strong winds and prevent from corrosion and leaks. I can't wait to see what's gonna be inside to that building, as what i have heard that it is going to be a gymnasium where youngsters will learn a lot of sports.

He's Officially TWO!

Time flies indeed! I still can't believe that my little potato turned TWO today. Seems like it was only yesterday when i delivered this healthy big baby. And now he's officially two. Kids nowadays grow so fast that the parents sometimes can't catch up with them. This little one is quite energetic, handful yet jolly, bubbly and funny! He always have something he can come up with to make us smile. He's the apple of our eyes in the house, he's the entertainer and the clown.

To my little one, happy birthday to you potato! Daddy, Mommy and big brother loves you so much! Always be a good boy, wishing you good health always :)
He's officially TWO!

Payday Advance

I just called back the company who called me last week to confirm if i am still available for the job they are hiring and if i am still interested. If only i don't have party coming up for my son's birthday, i would love to start to work as soon as possible. Probably i am already starting by now if i told the lady who i talked to that i can start whenever. But then, hopefully i can start next week so i can get the payday advance so i can send it to my family back home. That's the main reason why i was looking for a job, so i can support my mother's medicine maintenance.


One thing that i really love the most here in America is the different varieties of fruits. My one of the most favorite is strawberries. I just can't get enough of it especially when it's dipped with melted chocolate or something sweet. That's why when it's not seasoned here, i just order strawberries online, that way i can satisfy my cravings. Well, it wasn't just me who loves those coated strawberries though, hubby is one monster too when it comes to those sweets. Not to mention we have two boys that really loves to munch as well.

Protruded Front Teeth

When i was still back in Philippines i used to wear retainers to push my protruded front teeth. But then because i was so lazy to keep going to the place where i had my retainers, nothing happened to my teeth, instead it got worse. Now, i regretted why i really did not take care of my teeth when i was a lot younger. I could have done something to make it look nicer and not awful.

If you notice that i hardly show my teeth to most of my pictures, it is because of my front teeth. I really want to do something about this, and i hope i can have this fixed very soon. I so admire those people wearing their beautiful smiles with their white and nice looking teeth. How i wish i have those kind of smile like what they have! Hubby suggested to me that i should look for a best Orthodontists, that can take a look at my teeth and will be able to fix it. Also, we are looking after the charges since we both know that wearing braces won't be that affordable. But, hubby would love to have me seen to get my teeth fixed so i can show my big smile and won't hide my protruding teeth :)

Young Kids

Thanks for the post from Sylvester Campbell

I can remember when my kids were younger and our afternoons and evenings were always a madhouse trying to get each of them to their respective after-school activities, do homework, get dinner, baths, bedtime, etc. My husband usually got home from work in the middle of all this mayhem and sometimes I felt like he was just another “kid” making demands on my time. But as time moved on and the kids grew up and began to drive themselves to their activities, it was a little more pleasant to get to spend some time with my husband in the evenings. Of course, nothing lasts forever! His company was sold and they told him he had to start doing more travelling out of state. Since I only have one child left at home (a senior in high school), I’m finding myself spending more time at home alone. The evenings can get long—and scary—so my husband suggested I look at for a security system. I do feel better when I lock myself in at night but I sort of long for those afternoons when there was so much chaos and activity in the house.

The Brothers, My Joys

Kids are definitely loving the summer time! They get to enjoy outside more often. They go out in our backyard and plays the wiggly piggly they have and also the sprinklers. And i am also loving it because i get to enjoy watching them as i grill some burgers or maybe chicken thighs and legs for them to munch whenever they get hungry after the run around and chasing each other. They are now getting tanned because they are more exposed under the heat of the sun everyday, which it don't really matter to me for their skin color will lighten up again when winter comes and i hate to think about it right now, for we are just enjoying the hot temperature we have here.

This photo below was taken yesterday, the big brother asked me if i could take a picture of them both standing in front of the sprinklers. He hardly asks me taking picture of him, so i quickly grabbed my camera and got few snaps of them. As i was looking at this picture of them, i realized that they are growing so fast, little did i know, they are no longer my babies! But still i call them both my babies, which my oldest son hates it especially when i take him to school lol! So i told him that even if you are going to have a family of your own someday, still you are going to be my baby and it will be forever, no one can ever change that. I love my two boys so much, they make me happy everyday and they are my inspiration in life.

Storm Shelters

Luckily, Utah is safe from floods or worst tornadoes. We are up high from the ground and plus the fact that we are pretty much covered with all the rocky mountains everywhere. I feel sad whenever i see news that in south part gets hit by tornadoes. Good thing some families does have storm shelters and when tornadoes hit the area, they will be safe and keep them from harm. That's the last thing you want to happen to your family, is one of them will go away because of the frightening tornado.

Planning To Continue My Studies

One thing that i would like to accomplish in my life soon as i have enough time for myself is to continue my studies. I only graduated in high school and i really want to pursue my studies to college. Sadly, i had to work right after i graduated in high school due to financial crisis. My mother told me that she can't support if ever want to go to college. So, i ended up having a job in an early age instead of finishing my studies. I feel so jealous to all of my high school classmates whenever i see them and talked about what did they take and what school they go to.

Now that i can have that chance to have my dream come true, which i just have to wait a little bit more until my kids will be big enough to be independent, i can now imagine myself going to school in college. And by browsing some online schools, i found that is the school that i would want to go to. I mean, really if i want to do it now, i also can do my studies while at home for they have this Walden University's online degree programs. I am considering that for myself really, since i really can't afford to lose my sight from my kids, and not to mention that i have to pay a baby sitter to take care of them both while i will be at school. Hubby said that i need further more details to learn about Walden. I am really looking forward to finish a degree, or even at least a vocational course, so i will be qualified for the jobs i am going to apply in the future.

Halogen Light Bulbs

Photography is one of my obsession these days, most especially the macro photography. I really am not into portraiture but i am trying to learn because i have kids that i would like to photo shoot in a studio. Which reminds me, that i do need to get some Halogen Light Bulbs so i can put it on my umbrellas and will use it as the light of the subject. I have been seeing some photographers that are using cheap and alternative to the original gears that a photographer usually buys.

This way, i don't have to spend too much for my own mini studio downstairs, also i am going to have the brightest bulbs that i want to get. Some professional photographers i met online told me that it is not really necessary if my gadgets or devices are expensive, i can just buy the alternatives which can save me some cash and have the same quality result of the portraits that i would want to have. I really need to start my mini studio for so many purposes. I can also do the macro photography in my studio. For example those commercial images such as tomatoes with white background or black background, i would love to try that myself. And having a perfect lighting using these affordable bulbs, i am sure i can take good shots just as good as these photographers that i have admired of their awesome works.

Medical Negligence Lawyer

One thing i really appreciate here in America is they all have the rights and freedom. Although we also have it there back in my country but it is really not implemented like it is here. When you have a profession and you commit mistakes, rest assured you are going to be in trouble with the law. For example, if the doctor made mistake to one of his/her patients, there's Medical Negligence Lawyer to take care of all that and defend the patient to claim what is right for them.

There's a whole lot of malpractice incidence already in my country. And due to financial issue, unable to file charges against the doctor, they just instead accept the situation even though it hurts them knowing that their family is the one who is involve in the case. But here, certainly the doctors are more careful on what they are doing to keep their profession intact and won't lose their license. I knew couple of friends that experienced like this, and they are happy somehow that even though their family encountered major second operation to save them, still they are thankful that they were able to claim what is really right for them, what they deserved to get.

Summer Pool Fun

I am glad that my kids and i went to the pool yesterday with my friends and their kids as well. I was thinking twice yesterday whether if i go or not because it rained and made me feel so lazy to drive all the way down there and enjoy the outdoor fun. But, thankfully, the storm went away and the kids had so much blast...

Of course us, the parents enjoyed our stay there as well chatting while the kids were in the pool doing some fun stuff. It turned out to be a pretty nice day yesterday because it wasn't so hot and wasn't that chilly either to have the kids out and be in the water for that long hours. Pretty much they have been in the water for half of the day and i must say that it's all worth it that we went and enjoyed the day with friends....

Here are some photos i captured while my kids are in the pool. I can hardly find the big brother with that big pool, he was having a blast with his best buddy that's why i only got two shots of him. My attention was more with the little one of course.

Bike Rack

Another family get away plan? Hmmm, not for now, but hopefully soon. Summer is here and i know that when hubby gets the chance to have work time off, he'll think to go somewhere. And before that happens, we need to buy our son's bike a thule bike rack so we can bring it along with us and he will enjoy his bike wherever we go. He doesn't quite know how to ride his bike without training wheels yet, and going somewhere where it's more quieter place where he can practice his bike some more is a good idea so he'll learn it fast.

Wresting Vs. Karate

One thing i would not want my kids to do is wrestling. I think it's kind of a little too rough for them to do. Whatever it is, it maybe just a play or getting serious about it, still i don't want any of them do that. I knew a parent that likes to see her son do it and i don't see why. Probably because she thinks it makes her son tougher and stronger. As for my opinion, i would rather take my kids into the karate class, that way, they will learn self defense techniques. I myself have been dreaming to learn martial arts but it never happened. I guess i just have my kids do it for me.

Zumba Dance

Since hubby bought the wii for my son, i have been wanting to buy a zumba dance for myself so i can just do the exercise at home and not going anywhere, dragging my kids along with me since i don't know anybody that can baby sit them while i am away. That way, it would be easy for me to do the exercise and i can watch my kids at the same time. They might enjoy watching me and will dance with me too, i bet that would be fun for me and for my kids.

It's The Moments That Counts

Sure having a motor home is an another expense, yet if you like to camp a lot with your family, then it will come in handy for you. Just like our neighbor across the street. They said that they have that motor home of theirs for awhile now. Although, they have to do the motorhome repair here and there, but still it's worth every penny since they love to camp every summer time with their kids and grand kids. It's the fun that they think, it's not the expenses, since they said that memories can't be bought by money, especially the unforgettable bonding moments to children and grandchildren.

My Two Cheerers

Because a lot of things are in my mind right now, i am again dealing my insomnia. I am so depressed today when i heard about my family back home. My mother is not been well since she had her severe stroke long time ago and until now still taking medicines. What worries me is she is being prescribed by the doctor to take more medicines, which makes her feel dizzy sometimes. Also, my sister is now confined at the hospital, she was rushed there because she could not breathe. When i called her, she told me it must have been an over fatigue because she has been exhausted lately.

But, despite of all these problems i am dealing with, i have my two boys who cheers me up whenever i am down and feeling so weak. They sure do know how to make me smile, they want me to be happy, so my oldest one asked me if i could take pictures of them with their silly faces. I did and they succeeded with their intention, to make me laugh and be happy. My oldest son told me he doesn't wanna see me crying, which makes me feel so loved and special. These are my happiness, the source of my strength and the precious blessings/treasures of my life.

No Pets Allowed!

It has been awhile since i last heard about my good friend in Texas. She was pretty busy remodeling their house. She said that they got rid of their carpets already due to their pets's hairs sticks to it and she just got tired cleaning it up by vacuuming it. She in fact hired the pet odor company that takes care of it because she can't stand it anymore. She actually doesn't like pets herself, it's her husband that loves pets and she can't do anything about it because kids does love pets too!

She also let the company to do the pet stain and odor removal austin because some of their rooms has peed by their pets. Oh if you only hear how she whines about the pets inside their house. Good thing we don't have pets here in our house, and we could not have it either even if we wanted to because my husband and my son are allergic to pets, especially the cats. They get sick easy when they are around them. That's why our house is no pets allowed! So i am also glad somehow that i don't have to worry about pet because i myself doesn't want to clean pet's mess either. I have enough mess here to clean, done by my kids, i could not even imagine having pets here running around the house and making a mess. Aghhh that would be too much for me to handle.

Prepaid Cellphones

I am just so glad that i after all these years being here in America, i finally got my very first cellphone. Well, i was just being practical when i got here since i am not really in need of cellphone then because i stay home with my baby most of the time and we have a home phone. But now that my oldest son goes to school, i absolutely need to have one. Unlike when i was still back in my country, i always have the latest prepaid cell phones in the market. Cellphone is really handy and convenient, whenever i need to speak on to someone or maybe message, i can just easily do that right away.

Part Of Growing

When my son had his scary accident, i was so sad and hysterical that time. I told hubby that we need to take him to the hospital so he will be taken cared of. Good thing that our Medicare plan took care most of the bills after that, which is good that we don't have to worry a high bills coming up our way. It sure is scary when your loved ones get hurt. If only i could protect them and wrap them with rubber or something that will prevent them from hurting, i will definitely do it. But i guess getting hurt especially boys is part of growing.

Accident Is Scary

It was the most scariest night i ever had last night when my oldest son had an accident. Good thing everything went fine, thank goodness! I was so worried to death and hubby told me i passed out. So we took him to emergency room and saw a kid there too that was just about to leave, he was wearing an ankle braces, he must have had a bad injury. My poor son asked me what happened to that kid and i just answered him i don't know since we just saw him about leaving. Anyway, i will make sure that one of my kids won't get into an accident, it is indeed horrifying and it made me hysterical.

First Accident I Got Involved With

Okay, for the very first time i got involved into a car bump. I would not say it's a wreck for the damage to both cars are almost not recognizable. My car barely had a slight scratch on the bumper and so as hers. In fact, hers is almost like just got dusted off. So the woman freaked out and was yelling at me, got a big mouth over these people passing by us by the the private parking lot. While i kept repeating myself asking her an apology for what happened. She told me that i did not looked back. Actually i did, i looked back first to where i supposed to and gently backed up. But then when i turned my head on the left side she was there beside me already. I am assuming that she must have backed up so quickly than i did and was trying to beat me to get out from that parking lot.

I always back up so gently for i don't want to get involve something like this. It's a hassle, a time consuming and i don't want to get records most importantly and make my insurance rates high. She was insisting that it was my fault, for i did not looked at my blind spot. Well, like what i said, when i looked at my left side she was there all of the sudden out of nowhere. Luckily, there was witnesses, so one witness talked to the officer that took care of us how bad she felt for me for that the woman was exaggerating the situation, since there was hardly any damage, the fact it's not even worth calling the insurance to inform about it, but hubby said we will still to notify them ahead.

Anyway, i am so glad somehow because the witness was in favor to me. She said that accidents happens all the time and this time, the woman should not make a big deal out of it for it was barely a kiss, but it looked like the woman was so mad and about to attack me. So the witness did not leave until the police came so she can give her testimony. I thanked her and told her how i appreciate her concern and for being a good citizen. Actually it was her kids who pushed her to tell the officer what really happened. I was so calm while the woman was freaking out with big mouth.

The police told me that he's been working here for fifteen years and he knew the woman so well for she was involved with several car accidents already. And every time that she gets involved, she acts the same way and the officer is not surprised already. It somehow relieve me that the officer told me that there is nothing to worry about for i told him that it was the first accident i got involved with. I even told the officer that she was making a big fuss about our barely kissed bumper but then she did not even bother to buckle her daughter in the back. That is what she is upset about, she kept repeating herself that i might have hit her daughter in the back. So i told her that i have my kids in the back too, but the difference was mine were both buckled, hers wasn't. In fact when i came out from the car, the little girl was jumping in her car seat. Good thing we parked in the private parking lot so there was no citation. I thought that was a blessing in disguise for me. Most of all, we came home safe and sound.

Early Better Deal

Isn't it a little too early to think about Christmas Cards? Oh well, like what most people say, better be early than be late lol! Anyway, i am talking about this because we just barely got a catalogue from the post mail offering about this. And it says that the early we order the cards, the better deal we get. So instead of getting them when time is near, we might as well get it soon so we can have a good deal, how's that? It's not a bad offer at all, so we might as well get it!

Get The House Secured

For our family's sake, we do need to make sure that our house is safe right? It's really hard to trust people nowadays especially when they approach us like they met us long ago already. I have been telling my son not to trust anyone unless we, his parents know them so well. That's why hubby and i decided to install a device to detect burglars or thieves. Although we feel safe here where we live, but we are still making sure that nothing's gonna happen to us especially our kids inside the house.

We got the idea of putting the device from an out of state friend. He mentioned the numerous crimes that happened to where they used to live that's why they decided to move and get the house secured. They installed the home security poplarville just the same like what we have. The wife is no longer trusting just having locks on the doors. She said that it's better to be safe than be sorry later. Now, they are more at peace and calm, and be able to watch their favorite shows through, unlike before in their old house, they can't even sleep straight at night.

Quiet Passengers

My two boys are sure growing so fast. I could not even keep up with them. They're quite handful yet, they are also my joys and my inspiration every single day. It makes me smile whenever i see them playing together so happily although there are times that i get a little annoyed whenever i see them fighting. Well, honestly, it's the little one who is bully, his big brother just cry when they start to hurt each other because they play rough.

The other day as we headed to the big city, the two boys in the back seat were so noisy and happy teasing each other. But suddenly they went quiet, so i had to turn my head and look at them to check if they were alright. But it made me smile when i saw them so peacefully and quietly asleep! This is how they look during the whole trip to where we went. Haha, aren't they so cute? Oh well, they are always cute in mommy's eyes hehe....
