Well...thanks to the "black out"...when the electricity went off like 9:30 in the morning, I have nothing left to do since most of my time is spend on the internet and television...it was telling me to go ahead tackle something u hate! and so here it is...


We have tons of leftover, God knows how long it has been there (eeek!) and tough for us to find something since "the others" here never put things back where they're supposed to be!



This is how it looks after taking everything out...eeeky and yucky!



After scrubbing and washing, it pays off!

THEME: CREATIVE

I haven't been active for Saturday Photohunt and that surely explains why I am not at the blogroll anymore. Oh well, I can't help it. Saturdays normally is a family day or party day,lol! So, here's my take for this week's theme...



This is my eldest daughter's art work from her Preschool Skill Builders. I remember I showed this off at my other blog since it's obvious, I am proud of my kid's work...BUT I wonder where these are now???LoL! It's good that I have it in photo at least,hehehe!




My Journey To A Good Diet

Ever since I met my hubby, I have been trying to stay away from any trans fat as much as I can. It was really hard for me to adjust since I have to eliminate red meat in our diet and I grew up loving to eat read meat! Another thing is the constant check on any food that we buy for any hydrogenated oils (It should not appear on the ingredients) and believe me, it's tough to find one that doesn't have it! But still, I can't avoid to eat fast food meals when were on the road. Well, at least we rarely bring fatty stuff in the house, that helps a lot! Not only that we wanted to stay fit but also our aim is to live healthy and free from any clogged arteries if we could. I have noticed obesity here is growing fast and so many fitness gym on every town. If gym won't work for you there are diet pills like hydroxycut as a weight loss supplement. With diet and exercise, you can surely achieve some dramatic weight loss if you are determined and disciplined! As for me and my family, we just try to make sure we eat healthy food!

Can't Stop Planning!

Just recently, I have a talk with my hubby letting him know what's important to me as soon as we fix our next house. It's getting close to moving day (if all comes smoothly) and so we can't resist to talk about what do we want for our new place. Well, of course I told him I want new furniture! He keeps telling me it would take us long to have it all. He wants to have it eventually but for me, as soon as possible! LoL! So, in my search for great Furniture, I found furniturefromhome.com where I spotted bar stools that would match perfectly with our existing dining set! I might end up using a Bar Stool in the island counter top which is typical in any house. I love all the great selection they have and when it comes to my favorite room, bedroom of course comes first...so, I checked out their Bedroom Furniture and I easily fell in love with some of the great sets they have! So many choices but all are good and at a reasonable price! Some maybe quite fancy for my taste and too expensive but there are still a good buy! Next in line for me to achieve a comfy cozy house is well of course my computer area. I can't stop but wanting to have something like a beautiful desk and chair and for sure they got all the nice design! Great selection of high quality and best valued Furniture Home Office. I've been planning to purchase one a month ago because I mainly spend most of my time in the computer but then I soon realized, it's not a good time yet if we are moving. Right after we settle in, that's on my list for sure! What about yours? What's your favorite room in the house? Have it more comfy and cozy or even stylish and luxurious by adding beautiful furniture from furniturefromhome.com!

Recommended Kid's Videos

I have to be honest here, when it comes to my eldest, the television has become her baby sitter. I know it's all wrong but I can't resist to put her in cartoons when I'm busy with chores or online BUT before you condemn me, I have made sure I blocked out channels that aren't good for her (since she knows how to flip channels now). I tried to make sure she's watching good learning shows like Big Bear and Arthur. Just today, I found these recommended videos by babycenter.com:

Baby Songs
Hap Palmer leads the sing-a-longs that should keep your baby smiling and your toddler doing the funky chicken on the living room floor. And if you like this tape, there are sequels, including More Baby Songs and Even More Baby Songs.
Price: about $12.99

The Barney series
Love him or don't, young children take instantly to this aubergine behemoth. That aside, lessons in reading, counting, singing, and social skills are delivered in a non-intimidating, simple-to-follow format. The advantage to having a video, rather than watching the television show, is that your child can watch the same Barney tape over and over. Barney's Alphabet Zoo, It's Time for Counting, and Barney Songs are among the best in the collection.
Price: about $14.99

Beauty and the Beast
Before Beauty tames the wild Beast, the snaggle-toothed prince can be a little scary for kids under 3. But overall, you can't miss with this classic tale. Young and older children are entranced by the story, the animation, and the music.
Price: about $9.99

Awesome Animal Builders
Produced by National Geographic — which puts out several videos for kids — this tape is filled with real-life critters busy building home and hearth. If your children enjoy watching you at your chores, they'll get a kick out of watching these industrious animals.
Price: about $14.99

Winnie the Pooh
There are more than 20 Pooh videos. Our personal favorite is the original, Winnie the Pooh. You'll enjoy singing along with the tunes you heard as a child (remember "I'm just a little old rain cloud"?) and your child will love hearing them for the first time. Pooh and his friends — Eeyore, Christopher Robin, and Co. — are an enormously likeable gang.
Price: most titles are about $14.99

Thomas the Tank Engine
Again, you can choose from about 20 Thomas videos. Try, for starters, Daisy & Other Thomas Stories and Thomas Comes to Breakfast — both narrated by George Carlin. Children learn much about the world at home and beyond.
Price: most titles are about $12.99

Arthur Videos
Arthur the bespeckled aardvark — along with sidekick Francine — star in (among other videos) Locked in the Library, Arthur Writes a Story, and Arthur's Eyes. A real plus: Arthur's stories focus on, and help resolve, young children's worries and conflicts.
Price: most are about $12.99

Touring The Cave

For our anniversary trip, we chose Mammoth's Cave at Kentucky and I was just so amazed how HUGE that cave is! So many tours that you can take but just a little left available since pretty much people has booked it earlier (which I didn't do at all). Oh well, at least there were still left tours for us and on our 2nd day at Kentucky, we tried the Mammoth's Passage Tour (1 1/2 hr) that invites us to an old entrance and a little history and stories from the ranger. You can see how dark it is from the pics below and when the ranger turned off the lights...it was totally pitch black inside!

The next day, I wanted the river tour unfortunately, it was sold out! Focus on Formation sounded interesting since it was meant for those who loves to take photos even a tripod is allowed to bring in this trip! It was a short tour but the sights were spectacular! Can't help but to say ooohhhh aaahhhh with these beautiful formations and interesting shapes all around the cave!



So many tours, so little time...but it won't be our last trip there. Probably no kids next time since some tours doesn't allow 6 yrs and older.

6 Years of Blissful Marriage!


It's quite amazing if I look back into it. It was year 2001 when we laid our eyes on each other and only for about 6 months we find ourselves in the altar! Some are happy for me but others were skeptical about it! No matter what others have said, there was no stopping us...we were really eager to get married, have kids and start the family immediately. When you find "the one", you know...you got the gut feeling! so, there was no chance for us of letting go of each other! I must say, it has not always been dreamy and a "fairy tale" like happy ending story! To tell yah, it was one harsh ride! We've been thru a lot! There was even a time when we lost the confidence that we had before but I am truly thankful that we never gave up! We are still together and God knows how much we have kept this marriage sacred! For more blissful years to come...I pray thee!

It's such a wide variety of people from ages 20s to 30s to 40s. Those who went through a drastic body change from weight loss have excessive skin and fat they they want to get rid off or those who gave birth and have the same issue, even for those who are not happy with their appearance and as simple as those who wants to get a mommy makeover, they get what they want to achieve by going through a plastic surgery.

My Space

The only place I could really call "my space" is this one little spot where I have my computer! I don't have a fancy computer table or chair but I made sure I have the most reliable and fastest internet service (that's my top priority), also a high memory and capacity computer with all the photos, files and softwares I download all the time...gotta make sure it can accommodate all that, having a nice and soft keyboard since I type most of the time plus a mouse and key pad to make everything comfortable...never forget my lcd monitor! I just got this as my birthday gift last May and I could never be happier! Enjoying the wide and flat screen is really something! Well, I'm considering getting a new computer table and chair as well, maybe soon!

I've been so busy taking opportunities online that I truly disregard all the other things I needed to clean up! (If you're wondering what this opportunities are, I earn money while blogging and you can click paid to review my post on the very end of this post if you want to do it too!)I was so ambitious yesterday and had a lot of stuff done! The kid's room were getting too cluttered and tons of boxes hangin' around since I took away a bunch of winter clothes out from the dresser. Now, I had a chance to have them stuck in the box and I put away the boxes in their closet.

I also cleaned up the kid's bathroom since their toilet and sink needed it badly! Didn't take photos of the toilet coz it was so eeky and yucky! Didn't want to scare anyone here.















I went all the way to our bedroom and cleaned up! Even the toilet, vanity and sinks.Hubby's sink became a dumping ground and I can't believe how he could live like that! I guess he's waiting for me to clean up after his mess (men oh men!) here's the after photo since I forgot to take before photos: (You can see a mark on the mirror and I think my daughters slapped something that is so sticky even windex couldn't take it off! I gotta figure out how to take it off!)

I Have No Patience


When it comes to teaching my daughter basic things like counting, ABCs, reading and all of that, I really hate my low tolerance at my own kid. I just end up irritated whenever she tries to be foolish and not being serious until she ends up getting mad at me as well, so that's how we end up learning! I wanted to teach her to read but she's too stubborn and wants to do it herself. She's not being patient which is really not a good thing and I loose my interest as well. Well, it's good to know there is reading tutors if ever she would have a hard time learning how to read. At Score Educational Centers, they have tutors who can help kids from ages 4 to 14 to attain significant improvement in their academic and makes learning fun!

Jessica's Swimming Lesson

Her swimming lesson just ended again but still we want to enroll her for her 3rd session. Per session, she gets about 8 lessons within a month. I can see some improvement but I know she needs to enroll again since she can't quite swim without a vest yet. I've been told to be patient because I have expected it to be done in just one session but I was totally wrong! The last time, I went for her lesson, I was so glad I had my camera. It was just a perfect timing since they have a group class teaching them to jump over the boat. Pretty cool!


I was even amazed on how brave she was jumping over the diving board. Most kids were really scared but she just went there and did it! I was so proud of my girl!!!





My Least Favorite Subject

When I was in school, my most hated subject was Math! I just couldn't deal with numbers and doesn't have the brain to think logically,especially analyzing and solving math problems, i hate that! That's why I don't do well in Mathematics. Well, I'm hoping my kids won't get that from me. I do think it's important to be good in Math, they can either be a good accountant or a businesswoman or anything they want to be someday! When they go to school, that's the time when I could really tell where they do best and their weakest subject. If it happens when they don't get much interest in Math like I did, there's Score Educational Center that provides math tutors to help my kids or anyone who is struggling in Mathematics! I am hoping they got their dad's brain when it comes to numbers!

Live Your Life!

We only live ones and we have to really live life to the fullest!

THEME: FAKE


This is my eldest and her famous "fake smile". Whenever we ask her to smile, she always will but it's not natural and hubby has always called it her fake smile. If hubby tries to choke me while I'm taking the pic, that's when she gives us her real smile! The one that's really natural...LoL!

More Plans...

Ok, I'm not going to stop talking about our future home here. No, not now after knowing that this will be the year we will be moving! It's not only the thrill of being in a new place but also all the other small details that comes with it, something to stimulate my mind all the time! I have been telling hubby how we could've made our fully furnished basement into an entertainment room but he has to really have a spot for all his laboratory equipments and all that ate up the basement space! Why am I thrilled to move? Not only with all the other possibilities but also the thought that he'd be able to build a warehouse with all his work stuff and I can finally have an entertainment room down in a basement! When that time comes, I would surely get a wide screen tv, add some bar counter top and stools, home theater seating to achieve an ultimate entertainment area! How exciting! That is if I get a job,LoL!

Neglected Duties

Ever since I started my business in blogging, I could never allocate my time keeping everything around the house organized and clean. I maybe able to clean up the 1st floor and pretty much I am done for the day but the truth is, it's never done! The worst one really is the kid's room! I never got the chance to organize their clothes, having to put away the winter clothes and there are still boxes & boxes of clothes that needed to be stacked somewhere! Whenever I go to their room, I always think and imagine redocorating the room. Now that they're not babies anymore, Pooh & friends should retire and make that room more girly but wait! I gotta wake up to the reality that I have to hold my thoughts until we move. When that time comes, I'll get kid's furniture that are built to last and of course kids bedding that will surely be perfect for their taste! I know they love butterflies. So, it can be a perfect theme for sure!Glad to check out laurenslinens.com and found that beautiful flower garden beddings!

My Angels

Whenever I look at my kids, I couldn't believe how I was able to raise them both! I figured, I could never do such a good job since I think I, myself is still a kid (not my age but how I act,LoL!) I know I could never be a perfect mom and I admit, I have my flaws too! I sometimes feel like they don't deserve me and no matter how much they can be pesky, I couldn't imagine my life without them!







It's not always easy to take a photo of my 2 girls since their attention span is very very short so, I do what I take to get good shots. It doesn't have to be a perfect smile. Any gesture that is pure and real is what I am looking for...once they get tired of seeing me just shooting & snapping, I put down my camera and starts playing with them. I just love taking pictures of the two and I couldn't get enough!



Everything Is Up In the Air

That's how our case right now, with the offer we made, we are still not sure if we could get the farm! We don't want to get our hopes high because we'll never know what's going to happen but it's still nice to start planning for our future if ever we get the land! Oh, did I mention the endless possibilities in that farm? I just get too excited once I think and start talking about it! Our real estate agent has really been helpful to us and we are hoping she was able to throw out our offer in a perspective manner. It's a tough market right now and as they say, it's just the right time to buy a house but still you'll end up selling your place too so, it's just the same case! When it comes to real estate, we always try to look for the one who understands our needs and are able to help us with what we are looking for!

Day Dreaming...

Hubby and I discussed earlier what if we get the farm that we wanted. We are trying to make an offer for the place and hopefully, the owner will go down on his price! If that's the case, we sure would be glad to have our dream place and get started with a new life! We have talked about building our own house and it could cost us a bunch since the farm itself is already way expensive but still, we want something we could live all our lives and enjoy the way how we want our house to be. When we think of how we want it to look like, our preference, we could talk forever! Tile roof, brick walls, island kitchen, bathroom with 2 head showers side by side, oh gosh we could go and on. Just like day dreaming about a luxury home! Home is where you make it to be and hopefully we can build the one that we wanted!

A Portable Scanner

Scanner has always been a useful tool for any businesses or even personal matter. I have scanned so many pictures that are all taken from the old fashion 35mmm camera and I am sure glad with it's capabilities of making your photos digital because nowadays, everyone is doing everything in the internet like sharing documents, files, photos and many more! With the help of scanner, I was able to preserve good old pictures and saves it to my hard disk and even created my wedding page with all the film photos with of course, the help of a scanner! Now, there's a new portable scanner that is ideal for laptops or notebook! Powered by a USB port for convenience! You can just hook it up and it's very lightweight so, perfect for all your travels (only 14oz/390gm weight). You can get the best out of it with a high resolution of 600 dpi.

Scenes From 4th of July


It was one great night! America has celebrated another birthday! Glad to have the chance to celebrate it again for the 5th time and now being a citizen here makes me feel really proud!


Invited to a dinner party at a friend's house, I made a simple Filipino dish, "pinakbet" & brought some bottled wine coolers (as what hubby calls it). Enjoyed great food and chitchats. Still have much time to play around, park it is to spend our late afternoon! By the time it was almost 10pm (that's when it really gets dark), we made our way to the park to see these awesome fireworks. Only prob is, I don't have a good telephoto lens yet so, this is what my camera could only offer...(we hit the wrong spot having too much smoke)...well, it's still a great way to greet America a Happy Bday!

Still Waiting...

I'm so frustrated about the petition I filed for my parents! It's been more than 30days and still has no notice. Almost everyday I check our mailbox for the letter and somehow it affects me so much since every time I drive around, if I just think about it whenever I see mailboxes! Well, it kinda cheers me up to looking at all different types of mailboxes of our neighbors around here. Makes me think what I should get for our new place! Good thing, I found this site that showcase a variety of mailboxes! At seattleluxe.com, you will find something unique or common style. High quality stuff that are built strong. Either you like rustic, retro, western or any type, for sure you will find one at their website! It's valued at a good price too! So, I have to keep this site handy when we can finally move and look for a mailbox, I have something to look into!

Battery is still charging right now so, I am still itching to try this very very soon (well not so soon, takes about 90mins. for a fully charged battery!) Ok then, I gotta read those complicated manuals,lol!



I Hate Termites!

I actually I haven't seen any termites yet. I've only heard how destructive they are for your homes or any wood furniture. I remember staying in a friend's house here and they were planning to sell their house the only prob is they have to call a pest control since their house was infested with termites! What a bummer! I would never want that in my home and if in case it does happen, good thing there are companies you can call for a pest control. If this happens to you, consider killthetermites.com for termite protection and to get rid of those pest at your house.

Dreaming of Owning a Lodge!

I just recalled a vacation we had at Seattle, WA where we went boating to get to an island. Our friend owns a log cabin in an island and the place was beautiful! The cabin looked fantastic and I was day dreaming owning a log cabin like that! Even something like that in the picture. I found it online at stonebridgenorth.com where you can browse thru all types of homes, lodges, condos, villas and more! They sell custom built homes for those who loves vacation or those who are retired and Ozarks residents. Branson real estate can make your dreams into reality of having a lodge along Roark Creek nestled in a forest lake area of Stonebridge Village. Have a private development preview and visit stonebridgenorth.com to get you started!

Newly Added Sites!

I know I don't need to add more sites having to maintain 2 blogs right now. But then I thought I needed to rearrange something. Ever since I started earning money while blogging, both my blogs are flooded with ads! All of my treasured memories I kept in my web journal is so hard to find! So, then I thought of moving all our family's adventure/trips and any other important occasions in one simple blog. I'm sorry to flood all my friendster friend's emails with my updates since I'm on the process of moving my previous journal entries to friendster blog...feel free to visit anytime here!









And since I used to have my wedding page at friendster, it's gotta move to another site! Having to get it all done in one day is such a relief! I don't need to update it like my other blogs. It's just one page and that's pretty much it! Just a good place for our Wedding Day to easily share the link to anyone who wants to see the pictures. I do have a Wedding Album I carried from the Philippines which weighs like 20lbs! and I carried it in my book bag all the way to here! So, I left my family in the Philippines with less photos and thanks to the internet, it's just one click away to see all of them all over again if they feel like checking it out...if you do too, visit anytime here!Thanks!



In Need of Change...


Whenever I eat at our dinner table, our chandelier always bothered me. I mean I like how it looks and very useful too! But it just doesn't match our dinette since we have Spanish style set and the chandelier is a gold accented one. Hubby and I planned to have a Spanish look all over the house someday but this won't be the house we are living in right now. I was actually pessimistic about moving again but when we talk about the possibilities, it gets me excited and hoping we would someday get the chandelier that would match our dining set and the whole theme of the kitchen! I can't wait! So, I always do a window shop over the internet and found lightingdirect.com a great source for awesome lighting fixtures & this is one of the beautiful chandeliers that caught my eyes!

It's Not So Often...

that my eldest shares! I mean really...she's kinda greedy when it comes to food (like as if we haven't fed her for days!) and even toys! Most people say that it's normal for her stage but I just can't get over her attitude being so greedy and I try to correct her by threatening that she won't have any playmates anymore (that didn't work!); you're not going to have a treat (still not a good trick) or even telling her what if you visit to your friend's house and she wouldn't share, what would you feel? (reverse psychology tactic) nahhhh, didn't work either! So, I was desperate and looked it up at the book and found a technique..."before the playmate comes to your house, let your kid know that the other kid might want to play with her toys and let her choose 3-5 toys that she doesn't want her playmate to play with and hide it away but here's the deal...the rest, she should let her playmate play with them"...and so I tried that, it worked! Well, sometimes it's still hard to teach her sharing when she's outside the house but I guess, at least one tactic works when someone's in our house!


I Can't Leave The House Without...

I could never leave the house without sunglasses! Even during winter time, the sun can be too bright and whenever I am driving, it just blinds me especially at noon time. Glasses is always useful and I am so thankful whoever invented this thing! Amazing how many types of glasses out there! Either you just want it fashionable or useful tool like for any type of sports you are into. It would be nice to have a Wiley X Sunglasses if you are into fast sports. It's usually designed for variety of lighting conditions which helps darken the sunlight. That's what I totally need during sunny bright days. If ever I don't wear any sun glasses, it gives me a real headache.
