Busy week again

Before signing off for the Christmas Season, I need to remind myself that I have to - do- list right after the Christmas break. Aside from finishing everything for my daughter's baptism, I also need to do some grocery shopping for the New Year's Eve plus I need to wrap gifts for our family reunion for Jan 1 . We are also set for another reunion by December 30. I guess all of our schedules are really packed this season. I hope I can still go online on the 26th , I need to get my Insurance Quotes because my existing one is about to expire at the start of the year.

That's all for now. Enjoy the rest of the week. Happy Holidays!

Miss Independent

She will turn 2 months on Saturday , and I can't help but post her adorable pics wearing this super nice shirt from my mom. She's a bit overweight for her age, but its a good indication though that she's not thriving to gain weight since she has a reflux. Most babies with reflux has problems when it comes to weight and growth.

Look at her now..

That's all for now. Im busy finishing some work, I plan to be on vacation mode starting tomorrow. Im also looking out for some banking jobs online, my sister is planning to try out something new by next year. Finally, I can feel Christmas ! Have a great Monday everyone.

My Eyeglass hunt

.. is over. I found out the best Holiday Glass Frames From Zenni Optical last night and I was able to order a pair for my dad, just in time for Christmas. The popular online eyeglasses shop offers a wide selection of designs and colors to choose from, but of course, I just chose a plain color my dad since he will use it for work too. The price is really affordable and Im lucky enough coz it will be delivered before Christmas. Imagine , they have $ 8 Complete Rx Eyeglasses collection too, and this product made them really popular at the web.

Enough Said.

Bill Consolidation and More

Its the time of the year again , when people enjoy shopping for gifts and spending their money like crazy. Will all the sale, here and there, who could probably resist shopping, right? But just a precaution to everyone, we should always be vigilant when we shop. Put in mind our credit limit and our means of paying them. I have a friend here who really had a lot of personal debt from last year's Holiday shopping. She was so problematic when the year entered because she don't know how to pay for it anymore. She's so eager to be debt free so she checked for some ways on how she can attain that status. Bill Consolidation is the answer. Its obtaining a loan to pay off your debt. To help you with your debt settlement, a consolidator will help you out. They will assess your income, debt and spending habits. They will provide you with options such as loan modification wherein the interest is not high at all. The consolidator will help you not only with your present debt situation, but they provide long term permanent prevention. So before splurging too much in shopping or just in any spending, check the status of your account first so you wont go over board, thus you are minimizing debts.

Where's the mommy?

No picture of me lately. Why?

* Because I still feel and look fat with whatever I wear. I think I really need alli.

* Because I feel like I need to visit the parlor for a haircut and treatment. My hair is getting dry!

That's it !

These 2 reasons are enough to spare myself from the camera. I think my latest pic was with Jody's camera. We met at Greenbelt with Jacqui and Joy and we had a few snaps over a cup of coffee (just them, I swear not to drink coffee anymore after a horrible experience the other day ) .
Here are the kids now ( pardon the blurry pic, its from my phone) . It looks like Dominique is tickling Joaqui, and he's enjoying it :) It really feels different to have 2 kids. Double joy!

Enjoy the weekend everyone!

boxes galore

our nth box for this year arrived during lunchtime today. Lil boy was so ecstatic to open it coz I told him that he has a toy dog and a guitar inside. It actually contains toys , christmas ornaments , cosmetics and just a few clothes for the kids. The princess now has a "my first christmas" outfit , complete with an adorable bib. As usual, the mom is too excited to dress up her doll. LOL.

Joaqui's Elmo and Ernie toys were there too, but i was able to divert his attention for a while and pull out the 2 toys from the box and kept it at the other room. You should have seen me move like Flash ! Now I am so excited to wrap the gifts for the kids. Oh and you will be surprised with what my mom got for the girl . She's one excited grandma im telling you. I guess from too much excitement and store shopping she now had heel pains or Plantar Fasciitis so she cant go out of the house for 2 days. She's even wearing heel cushions for a faster relief.

i will post some pics soon.

Look alike ?

Leaving you with some pics of the princess before I start my day.

The 1st pic is my avatar at Twitter.

The second one is for my YM.

Now tell me, does she looks like Kuya Joaqui? Hahaha! Ive been receiving comments that she's beginning to look like Joaqui already - something that's not really noticeable during her 1st few weeks. But if you'll ask me , i think it's because of their cheeks :) Notice her hair? Nice noh?!

Anyway , Gotta go for now. I need to do some cleaning before they wake up. Im too excited to use the Sebo vacuum cleaners that we got from the mall last month. I hope cleaning the house will help me shed off a few pounds . Happy Tuesday everyone!

Manic Monday # 145

Not-so-good news

I just received an email last week from a friend in Nebraska and she told me about the accident she had at her workplace. I can feel her sadness that time since she's just living with her friends there while her family is at the other side of the world. Physically, she's a lot better now and under recovery. A Lincoln personal injury lawyer is also helping her with the case and so far she is so happy on how the progress of her case. She just need to submit a few requirements for filing and she will get her claims in no time. So to everyone, stay safe wherever you may be. Been seeing a lot of accident reports on TV lately.

1st month yumminess

We had a simple dinner at home during Dominique's 1st month celebration. I just ordered our super favorite Manhattan Meat Lovers Pizza from Yellow Cab.

Gelo bought this yummy cake from Aggy's at Filinvest. Sorry , I forgot the name of the cake :) So yummy that i didnt bother asking at all, kumain na ko agad.

My share at the kitchen ! Toasted Garlic Bread bwahaha! Full effort pa yan !

And of course, there should be spoaghetti ! My sister enjoyed cooking the pasta with her super effiecient pasta cooker which she asked my mom to buy at Macy's when I was still 8 months pregnant LOL!

I so love the Calphalon pasta cooker too that I thought of getting one for my MIL , but after learning how much it costs, i changed my mind. LOL! Nagkuripot! Maybe next time , but not really now coz Im on a tight bydget since we still need to pay home insurance .

Hello Friday !

My favorite day of the week is here !

I so lack sleep last night because the princess was up from 5am til 10 am! Milk. Poop. Milk. Poop. Nap. Yay! She naps for like 10 - 15 mins while im nursing her, but after that, she'll wake up. Oh well. That's motherhood, and I think I still have to wait til she turns 3 months til she adjusts.

Anyway, a lot happened during the week, and I still need time to blog about it. We don't have a Christmas tree yet (i think we have to pass again this year since we have a lot of Santa Claus in the house) , but our windows are well decorated now. We have new lights from my mom and we still bought a few outdoor lighting materials to add some effect. Every night , Joaqui would love to see all the lights and would greet us Merry Christmas every single night.
