Eat, Eat and Eat More!!!

These past few days, I'm surprised I haven't added pounds on my weight knowing that I've been eating a lot! It all has to do with my father being here who cooks our meal everyday, going out at buffets, malls, parties and of course the Thanksgiving! It's not surprising that gyms make a lot of money after the Holidays and diet pill sales will be up! For all your diet solutions, internet is one good source to find out what's best out there! Whether it's Leptovox or any other diet pills, make sure you read some reviews from!

All About The Turkey!

Hubby was hoping he could hunt for a turkey this year to have it in our table on Thanksgiving Day, unfortunately, there was no turkey in sight during this week! It's amazing coz like a month ago, they were everywhere at our farm. I see them near the house, on the driveway, I mean everywhere! I guess these turkeys know better than to stick around near the house during Thanksgiving Day, hehehe! Well, we just have to go pick up the bird in the store and I have it thawed all day! Here's how the bird turned out...


is what I needed and after taking a hot shower, I'm feeling a lot better! I just called my father and he'll be a couple of hours delayed from the bus schedule. His friend will pick him up at the terminal. Good thing the weather is good so, it gives me less worry about him being in the road. Pretty much all I did today is just resting and watching tv and now that I'm feeling good, blogging is another thing I wanna do rather than tackling household chores. Well, that's when I think I watched too much tv. Can't help it! It's one of my bad habits and the cable is making it really worst,hehehe! I'd better check out digital signage right now before I start to blurb all my worst habits here!

Not Feeling Well

I bet everybody had a bountiful meal yesterday from Thanksgiving celebration and pretty sure some are still munching away from those left over just like I do! Right now, I'm taking it slow coz I haven't been feeling well during these past few days. Even the kids have cough and cold and worst is hubby who actually had a fever last night. Glad to see him feeling better this morning and he's back on the farm since there are projects laying around there and needed to be done before Monday. Meanwhile, my father is on his way to Chicago and I wish I can go coz there'd be a party tonight there and of course, I'd love to see our family friends again but then - with us not feeling well here, it's a bad idea to travel but hopefully once my mom is here, we might just go over there to bring my father back here. He might go for a visit here during the holidays if he can get off from work {that's IF he is working there} but I'm pretty sure in no time he'll find a job there! So, now I'm back to my old routine and no one will cook for me no more,hehehe!

Plenty More...

...of stuff to pack! Well, thank God my father is here and that gave me the help that I needed to pack all things at our previous house. Then again, we can't move them yet at our new place neither here at the apartment. So, it's still in shipping boxes and just laying around the kitchen there. When time comes that we have the farm house ready for our stuff, we'll start loading them up in a truck! We tackled all the cabinets, drawers, closets, bathrooms but there are still stuff left at the garage and basement and to tell yah honestly, it's a LOTTA stuff!!! How did we accumulate all that??? Well, I guess when there's more people in the house, the more stuff you accumulate! Perhaps this coming weekend we'll be packing once again...

Welcome Party!

Me and my friends planned a party for my father and Lorena's mom in welcoming them in this country. It is nice to have them around here and hopefully they'll like it here. Our good friends gathered and brought food with special cakes...

We all had a great time chitchatting, munching, dancing and singing! I can't wait for my mom to be here and we'll throw her the same great party!!! {Click here for a photo slideshow}

It's Almost Here!

Can you believe that it's already November? AND when this month comes, we know that Thanksgiving is just around the corner then comes Christmas right after that. Time flies by during these busy holiday season and I am just thankful to God that I have the opportunity to celebrate it with my father but still it isn't complete without my mom around. I know that she will be here soon, I just have to wait patiently and when that time comes, next year, we can all celebrate these holiday season as one BIG family!!!

Are you guys prepared for the Thanksgiving? I have my cards all set and for the food, I normally get it at the last minute and for Christmas, it's the same thing but I make sure the cards are all sent out as early as possible too! We all know that there's so many things to do in our list during these times and how to make it simpler? easier? How about try buying online for gifts and even for Christmas cards - there's so many ways you can be creative with your cards like having a Holiday Photo Cards {which I totally prefer} It gives that personal touch, you know! AND always interesting to see faces on the card, right? Check for any of your card needs!

So Cute!

Isn't she the cutest? She's the niece of our good friend {who's holding her in the photo} We so adore this pretty, quiet and calm! I mean totally like she isn't even around coz you won't hear her crying or making a lot of eldest wasn't like that but my 2nd one was kinda like her. All babies are different, definitely! We enjoyed her presence at every party and we couldn't get enough! I'm surprised she doesn't get irritated being passed around, LoL!

He Needs This and That

Since my father arrived here, everyday we go to the store to get food, clothes and stuff that he needs most especially now that it's winter time. It's crucial that he has a coat, hat, gloves and all that to keep him warm. It's quite chilly out there now so, I'm glad that he arrived last week where we were able to enjoy the last warm days of fall. This week is such a crappy weather on the other hand, it's a good time to work inside the farm house. Just like yesterday, he ripped off all the carpets and I helped him pull out some nails and boards underneath the carpet. Still a lot of work but slowly by slowly we'll get there...

I'll Get It Someday!

I'm a movie addict and so it's one of my dream someday to have an entertainment room with a huge tv, surround sound system and a home theater seating. All that are essential in watching a movie to totally enjoy it! Well, it's not easy to set it up of course. First you gotta have a space then you gotta have a money,LoL! That's not what I can come up right now but I'm hoping in 3yrs from now, I might be able to afford what I wanted or with the help of hubby, it wouldn't take that long for sure! Right now, we are going to spend a lot of money for the basement in the farm house. He wants a new fully furnished basement in that old house. Me and my father are working on the floor. Just removed the carpets on the 1st floor and the hard work just started removing those nails and boards that is such a pain! Anyways, it's not bad to dream and wish something...with perseverance and hardwork, certainly that's attainable, right?hehehe!
