Goodbye Accountant

Next month , a dear friend of mine will go to the USA because she just grabbed a wonderful job there as an accountant. She got hired at a Las Vegas Accounting Firm and will soon be starting to work. I remember my sister who is also an accountant who currently works at a bank in CA. I told my friend that if there will be any vacancy in their company, she can give my sister a call so she can also try her luck there. My sister wants to try working in a firm since she has been with the bank for 4 years already. We will meet my friend next week for her send off party and I am having mixed emotions. I feel happy for her success in life , but I also feel sad because I will surely miss her. She has been working really hard eversince she graduated college ,a nd she truly deserves what she has now.

My dream wedding

During our vacation, we were able to see the Ocean Pavillion of the hotel , and I instantly fell in love with it. I was there for like 15 minutes, looking all over the place that is full of glass overlooking the beach. Such a serene place and I keep on imagining myself there , renewing wedding vows with my husband. Four years ago, if only we have the budget , then I would have chosen those that I see in destination weddings. I love weddings by the beach because i really find it romantic . I imagine those pictures that I saw at the site of Karisma Hotels where the beach is so tranquil , then there's white flowers at the ceremony venue..the beach , the sun and sand highlights it all. Maybe i should stop shopping now so I can start saving so I can afford a destination wedding.

Beauty and more

I love make ups and I just can't live without them. I am fortunate that my friends are so much inot it too so we shop together online especially if there's sale. I always try experimenting with my make up , from simple casual to something a little dramatic if there's an occasion. With this, my friend suggested that I take up cosmetology to further enjoy what I like to do best. Iam seriously thinking about it too, but I have to consider my schedule here at home. Having two kids really eats up my time so I am not sure if i can still squeeze up that class. But I feel excited just by thinking of it. I searched online and saw something like the beauty school indianapolis from Regency Schools. Its a fst growing beauty school that expanded its campus all over nine states. I am keeping this in my shortlist by the time I am free to enroll in Cosmetology.

Energy Supplements

Lately , I have been soo busy around the house , that I wasn't able to update this blog anymore. I became dependent on coffee and i thought of giving it a break for this week. But i wonder how will I have those energy I need to survive the day ? My friend suggested that I try these Acai Berry Energy Supplements . It is an all natural product that has became popular because of it's effectivity. I am a bit hesistant at first to give it a try because I'm afraid that it might not taste really good. I have this thinking that natural stuff tastes blank. But my freidn said that i should give it a try first for me to find out. So later, I will order online and hopefully , i will receive it any time this week. I am still browsing their site and they have a lot of natural products available. Hmm , I wonder what will I get for my husband.

Electric Airsoft Gun


AEG Airsoft Gun


If you are into Airsoft Guns , then you might probably considered getting an Electric Gun . My husband told me that some of his friends are using this already , but since he is not yet aware on how to use it and it's purpose, he just played his. Since I am giving him some information on every airsoft gun that he wishes to know more. I guess it is really a part of this hobby that you get yourself acquainted with guns , its accessories, purposes , good side and down side. I never thought that there's a lot of airsoft guns in the market. I am happy though that my husband is contented with what he has now. I hope thiings won't change as of the moment. Anyway, here's the information i got online. Hope this will help you.


Electric Airsoft for Airsoft Electric Guns Needs

Although there are plenty of great reasons to purchase an electric airsoft gun, you need to be careful about doing your research ahead of time. Like any purchase, the less you know before spending the money the greater the risk of experiencing buyer's remorse. And there's no good reason to mar your enjoyment of the electric airsoft equipment by not spending a little time doing at least some background research on what's available. So before you decide to spend a dime, here are some tips that can help you make a smart airsoft electric guns purchase.

Know the Purpose for the Air Soft Electric Gun

First, you have to understand why you want the gun in the first place. There are plenty of good reasons to choose one but you need to know the primary purpose for yours because different styles of weapons are going to be better for different uses. For example, if you are going to be shooting at your friends on a course you'll probably want something faster than a manual spring pistol just wouldn't be the best choice. You're not going to be competitive when you have that delay between your shots.

When you think about how you are going to be using the gun first, you'll have some guidance in which models to search for. If nothing else, you'll have some way of getting across to a seller or customer service representative what you're wanting from the gun airsoft product you plan to purchase. Of course, if you plan to use it for lots of reasons, your best choice is the electric model known as an AEG.

Consider the Electric Airsoft Gun Speed

Don't buy one of these electric airsoft guns unless you know the speed it can shoot in feet. Without this knowledge, you could end up purchasing an item that won't deliver the results you want. For example, if you're looking for a machine gun unit you'll definitely want to looking into the Airsoft electric guns line because these are capable of shooting between 300 and 400 feet per second. Keep in mind that those numbers also indicate the safe firing distance between you and other people.

Think about the Cold and Effects on the Airsoft Electric Gun

While this may sound a little ridiculous, the truth is the weather can have a big impact on you choice of airsoft weapons. If you're playing in a very cold location and you've chosen a gas powered rifle, for example, you could be in for a big surprise when it doesn't work. That's because most of the gas powered guns won't work in very cold conditions. Spring loaded might be a better option if you're just wanting to do some target practice outdoors. However, if you're looking forward to running the course with some friends in zero degree temperatures while snow is still on the ground you're going to want an Airsoft electric guns. They don't freeze up but they do provide rapid firing action. All of that makes a great reason to invest in Electric Airsoft.

Options express

Have you heard about options trading lately? Well, I am thinking of some kind of investment for this year, and a friend recommended this one. You know that these days, bank savings are not enough, one should place his money on something that has higher interest than usual. So I checked out PowerOptions and read more about the options express . They have online tools to help you monitor the progress of your investment. And they even have a toll-free customer support for your inquiries and feedback. Now , you might ask when is the right time to invest on this? My answer would be now is the best time. Make the most out of the money you have now than spending it on senseless shopping.

Can i borrow?




I am up for something BIG between my kids. I bet they will be like cats and dogs when it comes to toys and stuff. The pics above were taken during our weekend at Bellevue. They both love playing with their dad's cellphone and they are "fighting " for it LOL . It happened many times, not just with this but with the PSP , laptop , camera , LeapPad , LMAX (yeah they are both into gadgets) ... I will definitely be needing the best wrinkle cream when i hit 40 ! I think this is really normal , they both want the same thing at the same time . and when you try giving the other a different one, then the other would want that too. I hope this would be lessen when Dominique is into dolls already .

Low Batt ?

Then you need a charger of course ! It actually didn't came to my mind that Airsoft guns would need accessories. Well , it's a guy's thing so I have no idea with that. I joined my husband with his game last weekend, and he asked me to give it a try. I can say that I had fun and I'm looking forward to next weekend. But before that next game, I need to buy a few accessories, for face and eye protection. I have read that one needs a complete safety gear before playing , to be on the safe side of course. I might get it online if I can find one really affordable and durable of course.

Here's what I have known about Airsoft Accessories , its a big help for starters like me.

Airsoft Accessories for Airsoft Guns, Rifles and Pistols


If you want to make the most of your Airsoft guns, you're going to need to acquire some useful Airsoft Accessories. Most of these additional supplies will either help you have more fun or will ensure your safety. Both are, of course, important whether you're a beginner user or a more experienced user. Below are some of the top soft air accessories you might want to consider adding to your arsenal.


Airsoft Goggles and Masks


One of the most important soft air accessories you can purchase is face and eye protection. Even though these guns are not anywhere near as dangerous as real pistols and rifles, the "ammo" is going to be shot out of the gun at a tremendous rate of speed. If you in the trajectory of that ammo, you could get seriously injured. If a BB hits you in the eye, for example, you could be blinded thanks to the full force of that air pushing it out of the barrel. By always wearing these airsoft guns accessories you can protect yourself from pain and serious injury.


Extra Air Soft Ammunition


What is one of the worst things that could happen to you while you're having a great time shooting off your BB guns? What if you're in the middle of a game with your Airsoft Rifle Accessories pointed out a competitor ready to fire the winning shot and you realize you're out of ammunition? That would definitely make you less than thrilled but would also give your competitors a great story to tell. And since you don't want to be the guy in that story you should always come prepared with extra ammo. The best idea is to keep your gun loaded and bring along a healthy supply of extra bbs, too. You may not need them today but you might tomorrow.


Pop Up Targets for Your Airsoft Guns Practice


One of the best parts of having your own Airsoft gun is that you can use it to improve your aim. However, that's going to require having something to shoot at. One of the most useful of the Airsoft accessories, therefore, is going to be pop up targets. You have the flexibility to set these at any distance you desire so you can keep improving your aim over time. They are convenient choices because you can place them anywhere you want which is good if you want to work on your aim. Plus you can move the targets back further as you keep improving your shooting ability.


Durable Air Soft Guns Carrying Case


Another good idea for Airsoft accessories is a carrying case. This makes it convenient for you to take your equipment, including targets and extra ammunition with you. That means if you want to visit your friends and do a little fun shooting you can easily have everything you need with you and don't have to worry about losing or forgetting anything that is important. The carrying case is also a great way to take your charger along with you.

Eat healthy

You might have noticed lately that I am working hard to shed a few pounds. Even though it really doesn't show yet in my figure, I am proud to say that I am doing my best to eat healthy and stay away from junk food. I stopped buying from the grocery , coz when you stock up at home, you usually eat that when you feel tired or hungry . So that gotta stop ! A friend of mine suggested some weight loss supplements that work , but i am seriously contemplating on trying it out because we are off to the beach in 3 weeks and who would want to walk around there with a bulge in your tummy (yet you are not pregnant) . Oh well, it takes discipline and hardwork i guess.

Here's what i love to eat lately when we are at the mall. It's cholesterol and fat free , plus it has fresh fruits so that adds a little something :)


My Froyo with Peaches , blueberries and cheese ( yum!)

Tired and Sleepy

Did you sleep alone last night?
:: me?? Nope ! I have 2 kids and my husband with me

What were you doing at 8 this morning?
:: still sleeping because Dominique woke up in the middle of the night . I slept at 4:30 am !

Did you kiss or hug anyone today?
:: yeah , my kids

Who was the last person you spoke on the phone with for over 20 mins?
:: its not really more than 20 mins , but i talked to Kathy last Saturday when I saw our crush at the mall. And i was talking while walking inside the mall asking for an orange flavored toothpaste LOL

When is your birthday?
:: may 10

How are you feeling?
:: happy but tired

Are you wearing jeans, shorts, sweatpants, or pajama pants?
:: shorts

Litratong Pinoy - Tuyo (dry)


Ang daang ito , sa tabi ng isang swimming pool ay nanatiling tuyo dahil sa tindi ng sikat ng araw.

Magandang Huwebes mga ka LP !

Get glam for less

With less than $50 each, one can achieve that glam look of jewelries. I love accessories but I can't spend that much on them so I always use my alternatives to still look great even if I'm on a budget. Look at these lovely pieces that I found at Holsted Jewelers, who would even say that it's on sale?




With its price, one can still expect excellent quality of every jewelry . I can tell that my little girl can still use this when she gets older. With its classic and elegant designs, it is surely a great piece. Search through all of their items and I bet, you will end up buying a few pieces too, just like me.

Toys for the Big Boys

After posting toys for the kids, let me share with you the latest toy of my husband.



Pistol Airsoft Spring


He tried out this new hobby a few weeks ago , and I can tell from the first day that he really had a great time. He got this new Airsoft Pistol after a few days and i saw him reading about this online. I am thankful though that there are websites which helps a newbie like him. These are a few that I have seen that he bookmarked. I am sharing this so you may have idea just in case your husband's will also be in this hobby.


Best Airsoft Pistols and Pistol Air Soft

Entering the airsoft gun hobby can be rewarding but is not always easy because of the variety of options you can choose from. Not only do you have to worry about choosing airsoft rifles that are well manufactured but you also need to consider which specific types of guns you want to work with. Maybe you already know whether you want airsoft pistols or machine guns but learning a bit more about your choices will ensure that you choose the best airsoft guns for your needs and your experience level.

Airsoft Pistol, Shotguns & Handguns

With airsoftguns, you'll also find some other options. Handguns, such as airsoft pistols, are frequently purchased by beginners because they are a good choice for learning how to properly and accurately handle and fire one of these weapons. They can also be good sidearm weapons meaning they can serve as a backup if you're playing a match and run out of ammunition. Most of the shot guns are not going to be used in matches but there are some that are capable of firing off multiple rounds quickly but overall these would be better choices for target practice. Most airsoft enthusiasts would suggest pistols over both shotguns and revolvers that rarely perform as well.

Air Soft Rifle Options

Two types of rifles are commonly available in the airsoft arena. Assault rifles are one choice. These are one of the most popular types of guns in the airsoft family, possibly because people love the idea of shooting off an M-16. These weapons are capable of doing auto fire that makes it an ideal choice for a few airsoft matches. Another option is a sniper rifle. These can be great choices if you're already part of a team and that team wants a competitive advantage. Not everyone enjoys using a sniper rifle but it can make a great secondary choice.

Air soft Pistol, Carbines and SMGs

The carbine is an interest choice because it's basically just a smaller version of standard airsoft rifles, except that it uses the same ammunition as a submachine gun (SMG). Among airsoft players, the SMGs seem to have some advantages. They may not pack the biggest payload or the most power but they can be great choices because they are easy to handle and don't hamper your movements the way larger automatic weapons, such as the machine gun, might.


Deciding on the Right Weapon

Despite all of the pros and cons, the only person who can really determine the best airsoft guns is you. And that decision should be based on many factors, including your experience level and your intended purpose with the weapon. In some cases, the type of weapon may not matter as much as whether or not you're choosing an automatic or semi-automatic variety. At the end of the day, you have to make the decision about the best airsoft guns for your needs and that requires some research and careful consideration. After all, you don't want to go home with airsoft pistols only to find out you'd have been better off with an M-16.

Little Marc Jacobs


I was searching for some items on wholesale online because I plan to sell them, especially kids clothes , and look what I found ! Its not on wholesale, but it is on sale at Nordstrom . Would you believe that the regular price for this is $165 , and now it is marked down to $57.45 ! Whoah ! That is a big slash already , but i dont have the money for now to spend on this beautiful dress. I find it perfect for her birthday , but i guess i have to wait for another sale , and by that time maybe i have money to spend for her clothes. For the meantime, I need to go back with searching for wholesale clothes.

Its for free

Don't you just love it if you found something for free? I recently found out about this royalty free music online . Its a site for an online collection of quality music for the indie creative community. I chanced upon this site when i was looking for Stock Music that I'll be needing for some of my work. They have good sound quality, and it comes in several formats like wav and mp3. The next time you'll need royalty free music, you know where to go , and i am pretty sure you will enjoy downloading from their collection.

worth it

Now that our monthly amortization for the car is done, i am thinking on where to invest some of our money. I am afraid that i will just spend it with nonsense stuff, so i must really come up with a concrete plan of not just putting it at the bank. I have the option of getting a few stocks , but since i'm not that familiar with stock options, i might try out investing with gold or silver. I plan to call the customer service of Monex so i can inquire with the silver price . I actually got this idea from a friend who already got a few pieces of gold. She said that it's worth investing with this since the value is really going up. Silver is one metal that is on high demand now because of it's properties so that would be a great investment too.

$5 deals at Old Navy

These are perfect for our beach getaway next month. And what makes it the best, its just $4.99 each!



Old Navy just finished their Great Summer Sale, but still, they have great items marked down and I can't resist to shop for the kids , and even for me. I love their clothes, its good for those trip to the malls, playtime etc. Most of all, it's priced just right :) I better check out what they have for boys , a little shopping wont hurt.

my soul is ..

Your Soul is Welcoming



You are a warm hearted and open minded person. It's easy for you to forgive and forget.



You are not a very grounded person. You prefer dreams to reality. For you, it's all about possibilities.



You see yourself with pretty objective eyes. How you view yourself is almost exactly how other people view you.



Your near future is calm, relaxing, and pretty much what you want. And it's something you've been anticipating for a while now.



For you, love is all about caring and comfort. You couldn't fall in love with someone you didn't trust.

Need a break ?

Then why not try a romantic vacation riviera maya ? I was looking for some family destinations in this region when i chanced upon the Karisma hotels at Riviera Maya. There's different type of resorts that offers personalized services suited for ones needs. Aside from the family resorts, they have beaches that is so ideal for honeymooners or those who are into a romantic getaway. I actually recommended this to a friend of mine who will get married soon. This reminds me of my own dream of spending a few nights in a luxury resort , and waking up every morning with the view of the beachfront. Sun, sea and sand are the 3 things that i also look forward to in this type of vacation. Maybe soon , me and my husband can enjoy a romantic getaway too.

Kids closets- organizing

This is a really nice article that I came across lately. I am having problems organizing the clothes of the kids, this is a great help. Thanks to the site of Martha Stewart!


Read on!

Hanging Stuff
First, employ a two-rod system. The lower rod allows small arms to reach shirts or jackets; the upper one holds next season's clothes. Since kids have very little to hang up, the closet requires short rods only. To hang lower rod, cut two pieces of strap webbing (each twice the length plus overlap). Wrap both straps over top rod, overlap ends on the bottom, and staple-gun through all the layers.

To achieve an extra-neat appearance, use a single style of hanger (we chose inexpensive plastic) in just one or two colors.

Shelf Storage
Bookshelves provide at-a-glance storage for pants, sweaters, and T-shirts. Stack sweaters, pants, and T-shirts on their own shelves so your child can find what he's looking for without rifling through every piece of clothing in a drawer. Use the bottom cubby to keep the backpack out from underfoot.

Peg Board
And what to do with belts and skateboarding helmets? Use a peg board to hang them neatly on the wall, where they'll be in clear sight. With a variety of hooks and a few well-chosen containers, you can help things find their way back home, ready to go for the next day.

Paint peg board a bright color to add a splash of energy to the inside of the closet. Affix it to the back wall of the closet with mounting hardware, and use simple hooks to dangle all manner of paraphernalia. Set the bookshelves in front of it and anchor to the wall.

Step
A two-drawer cube provides ample storage for socks and undies. Plus kids can reach high-up things all by themselves.

Mirror
A useful and lightweight plastic mirror can be cut to any size; ours covers the side of the book-shelves above the cube. Attach easily and securely with heavy-duty double-sided mounting tape.

Sock Drawer
In the brightly painted drawer interior, baskets intended for kitchen cutlery keep socks in tidy rows. A small jar made for peg boards corrals ponytail bands. A ribbon with a loop for hanging displays hair clips so they're ready at a moment's notice.

Tomorrow's Outfit
Install a hook on the inside of the closet door and reserve it for one thing only: the next day's clothes. Your child can pick them out before bed each night.

Lovely !

So this is one of the gifts that i got from my mom and dad when i turned a year older last May. I remember my mom asking me if i will like this heart pendant jewelry , and of course i said YES ! Im not really into jewelries, but now that i have a baby girl, i know that someone would use it in the future so there's a lot more reason to buy :) Anyway, here's the pic.. it doesn't give justice at all but it's really fab.



More than what i expected, it comes with a really nice chain . And its good to wear even if you are wearing nice fitting tees , it boosts up your look without being too flashy with accessories. Thanks mom and dad!

supplies for diabetes

Last week , my mom told me that her sugar level is currently being monitored because her last exam results were a bit high than the normal range. She is also into some meds already and hopefully it will help her sugar to normalize in no time. Hopefully it will not lead into a full case of diabetes , because i know how hard it can be on one's diet. My mother in law has diabetes and until now she has medications and a strict diet to ensure that her sugar wont shoot up anytime. I even got her some insulin syringe last year for her daily shots of insulin. I think with proper diet , they will really be in good shape even they have diabetes. Im really hoping for the best for my mom's health. Its so hard to be sick nowadays.

almost 8



Here's my princess , a week before she turned 8 months old. This was during our family weekend at Bellevue. I really thought we will have a hard time since she's a bit young and we have to bring a lot fo stuff for her at the hotel. To my surprise, we really had a great time there. She enjoys the water at the pool even if its a bit cold. I can't wait to have another weekend break again. Its good to have it once in a while .

Whatever

1. What was the last thing you purchased from a vending machine?
I can’t remember the very last time. But i remember buying coffee once.

sister and her online degree

Tomorrow will be my sister's first day in school , an online university i should say. She finally braved her schedule at work and enrolled herself to get an online degree . She really has a lot of plans for herself this year , and i never knew that she was really serious with it. Now i feel happy with all her decisions, I'm sure, she will really go places in no time. I wonder when i can enroll myself too. I've been thinking of this one for months now and i even told my husband about this . I am also encouraging him to enroll himself. Maybe, give us a few months, when my princess is a bit bigger and we have more time here at home.

Xbox for dad

Last week , we went to two malls looking for a great deal on XBox , but still we find it pricey with the amount i saw online. This is what the dad likes for now, he is really into game consoles so i am not suprised to know that he will be getting an xbox. Since it would cost us a few more here, we will just get it online and have it shipped at my moms place. She will soon be going home and my husband is willing to wait for a while. His next projest now is to buy some games for it. NBA would definitely be there as this is his and my son's favorite game.

Working on a saturday night

Boooo!!

This happens when im in great need of money, there's no room to be lazy. This is actually a long day for me already , but i have to work hard for something that I want to have soon. That I have to keep a secret for now.

Anyway, my princess is 8 months old today. We went to the mall for dinner then we checked a few of our fave stores. My husband is looking for an unlocked phone at the electronics shop as i browsed through some cameras. He plans of getting a personal phone because his current phone is for business use.

Tomorrow we will hit another mall, hopefully i can grab some clothes for my princess. Happy Saturday everyone!

She loves the water







Enjoying an afternoon dip at the swimming pool of Bellevue Hotel with his dad. The water was cold according to Gelo , so i didnt let his Kuya swim (and he doesnt want to. he's contented with the bath tub in our room ) .. it was a short stint for the girl because of the wind , look at her hair !
So this is really for picture taking purposes. Her back is not even wet , pero naka sunblock yan all over , baka lalo umitim eh hahaha!

I wasn't able to take a pic of her in that swimsuit. Lagot ako sa nanay ko !!! LOL

Still Alive .

I am back to my online world.

I did not neglected my blogs, a lot of things happened last week and i really dont know where to start. First things first. I will just squeeze a few updates because I need to research more on Blue Advantage , a health plan for the residents of North Carolina. My cousin needs it for her thesis and I am helping her out.

Anyway, just to give you an idea, the highlight of our weekend was our 4th wedding anniversary. We stayed in a hotel down South with the kids , so i was out of the online world since Friday. I have tons of pictures to upload, but that needs to wait as i have a lot of assignments to submit.

Be back soon!

Debt Consolidator

I know a friend who is having difficulties with her finances and sad to say, a number of credit card companies are calling her to settle her payments. Not only that, aside from credit card, I think she still has a loan somewhere. She used to have a good credit standing , but with the recession that happened in their work, she was booted out and has no work until now. I asked her to go for a bill consolidation so she can finish all her debts. I gave her the number 877-550-0595 to call for debt help. If only i have the money to help her settle, but its way too big and i have my own finances too for my family.

She told me that she already inquired for bill consolidation loans over the phone and a very friendly representative attended to her. She is so grateful that her worry would soon end. I feel happy that she somehow has this peace of mind. I hope that she will get this job that she applied for so she really start a new life. She promised that she will really start with managing debts because she doesnt want this to happen again. She learned her lesson the hard way. But i am happy now that things are falling in its proper place.

I need to lose weight!!!




That's what I always tell myself, and yet I ate all of these the last time we had dinner at The Old Spaghetti House then desserts at Cafe Breton ! No wonder i still dont have my pre - pregnancy weight. Grrr ! Maybe I should try some fat burners that i saw at an online drugstore , and hopefully it will give me good results. I wanna start losing some weight now because i wanna look good at my lil girl's birthday party. I am pretty sure we will have lots and lots of pics and i dont wanna see myself looking fat. No way!!!

Litratong Pinoy - Pangarap Ko


Ito ay simpleng larawan lamang , ngunit punong puno ng kahulugan para sa akin. Ito ay kuha noong Abril 15, 2007 , unang taon na kaarawan ng aking anak. Ito ang huling pagkakataon na magkakasama kami ng aking pamilya, at ngayon, matapos ang 2 taon ay magkikita kami muli sa Oktubre para sa kaarawan ng isa ko pang anak.

Simple lang ang pangarap ko - ang sana'y makasama sila sa araw araw.

Maligayang Huwebes sa lahat !

Her faves

I can tell as early as now that my princess will need the most effective diet pills when she grows up, hahaha! So far, i never had a hard time feeding her and i do hope it won't change til her toddler years. I guess most moms can say that feeding a toddler is somehow challenging because they tend to be picky, or sometimes they just dont have the appetite to eat.

Anyway, here are her 2 faves from Earth's Best:



A little info about the products:

For Ages 4 Months & Up. Six 2.5 oz single ingredient jars, that are finely puréed and specially designed for a baby starting to eat solid foods.

* No Genetically Engineered Ingredients
* Organic
* No Artificial Colors
* No Artificial Flavors
* No Preservatives
* No Added Salt or Sugar
* Vegan
* Wheat Free
* Kosher
* Organically grown, without potentially harmful pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers. Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth.

Tomorrow , i will boil potatoes for her , then maybe carrots the next day. I hope she will gain just enough on her next check up. She is so active , hopefully that would be a help of some sort for her weight issues.

lets go clubbin' !!!!

Because me and my online friends had a great time talking about "clubbing" the other night.. i took this picture of my princess in her latest outfit from Tarte Tatin.. The moment this girl learns how to wallk..Pwede na gumimik !!!



Note to Dominique:

Mommy gives her consent .. BUT you have to ask daddy first! Bwahahaha ( beware: i doubt if he will allow you even at the age of 18. He actually doesn't like this outfit . Yes, daddy is strict when it comes to clothes, but dont worry sweetie, mommy is here to rescue you! hahaha)

Go Yankees!

I just received a great news from my sister tonight. They already got the New York Yankees tickets that they reserved last month. It is so timely for their visit there by June in time for Father's Day. I wish i can watch a game of the Yankees too, my husband is a fan and he sees to it that he watches the game on TV. Anyway, speaking of Father's Day , i need to think for a gift for my dad and for my husband too. Any suggestions? I just gave my dad a cap from Lacoste for his birthday a few days ago and i really cant think of what to give him for now. A nice leather belt maybe? hmmm.. let me browse online for some good finds.

im still here

I was too lazy the past week . And the other week. And that explains the lack of personal updates in this blog. I am online, i chat with friends , but i dont feel like doing anything , except if i have a task to submit. Oh there's one thing Ive been busy with lately, party preps for the princess. Nothing major though, I just look online for possible supplies for the party. I am still undecided with a lot of party details so if you have some inputs, just let me know.

For the mean time, i think i need to look for some appetite suppressants , for myself. I've been eating like razy again, and i wasn't surprised at all that i gained a few pounds. I want to be back to 110 lbs , but i guess its close to impossible so i bargain for 115.. hahaha.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Litratong Pinoy - Payak


Dahil sa kanya , lagi ko naiisip na ang buhay ay simple lamang, na minsan tayo lang mismo ang nagpapagulo o komplika nito. Ang aking anak.. sa kanya lahat ng bagay ay simple lamang.. simple ang buhay at masaya basta kasama ang pamilya.

Maligayang Huwebes sa lahat!

Should i start investing?

The answer is yes.

I've been shopping like crazy since I had my little girl and i think now is the best time to invest some of my earnings with something worthwhile. A friend told me that i can start with buying gold coins from trusted companies like Monex. so i first checked out the site to see how everything goes and to read testimonials / reviews from their previous clients. Yes, i always do this whenever i consider jumping into anything. Now i am 50% convinced to buy gold coins and hopefully this invest can give me really good money in the future. This is a lot better than buying tons of clothes and shoes for my kids haha. Now i can tell my husband that i am saving for an investment, thats something new to his ears:)

She loves the camera

and the camera loves her..

I will show you in my posts to come why... i cant believe that at 6 months, she would recognize it and smile when someone would try to capture a picture of her. She is soo different with her Kuya who wont smile no matter how hard you try to convince him to. I guess girls are really more into picture taking than boys huh?! I am so lucky to have friends who are into phtography, i dont need to go to a studio , and yes, i am offering my princess to be their model for baby portraits haha (hello alpha, aggie, joy , kathy and thea )

Here's one from thea that i can share for now..

Snagged from Mommy Yen ..

1. Do you find you don’t have as much time on your hands as you used to?
+ yes.. i am soo busy every single day. who wouldnt be if you have an infant and a toddler?

2. Are you a “Clock Watcher”?
+ Yup

3. Do you think that Time Travel is actually possible?
+ im not sure if its possible

4. If your late, do you let people know you are running late?
+ I do. I usually send SMS or call them.

5. Do you spend more time on the Internet or away from it?
+ I've been spending a lot of time on it lately since its one way wherein i get connection with my family . I make sure that they see my kids almost everday through the webcam

6. Do you think that as you get older the days, weeks, months etc go by quicker?
+ yeah i agree with that.

Accessory Shopping

When I was still slimmer in figure ( yeah, i know, i still have my post pregnancy weight) i would usually dress up with a really nice plain colored top, denims and comfy flats. To spice up my outfit, i love wearing accessories. I prefer necklace over anything else. Second would be bracelets. It doesnt have to be expensive, I just want nice pieces in different colors. Lately, i tried wearing some costume jewelry rings because i receive one as a gift during my birthday. Wow.. i never thought it could add up some flair in my over all appearance. Its a good thing that i got 2 rings for my birthday and on weekend, i might check online for a little shopping for myself. Any suggestions on where i can find great pieces at good price? I heard Holsted Jewelers has a great collection and i'll give it a look after finishing some tasks.

The Young Scorpio

The Scorpio child is full of mystery and beauty. This child will demonstrate remarkable sensitivity to others, beginning with infancy. You will be amazed by the attachment you feel to this child! More than any other sign, Scorpio is capable of feeling and expressing need, the proverbial still water that runs deep.

The passionate nature of Scorpio is known the world over and this sign is well adapted to expressing intense emotion. Artists and writers are very often Scorpios, as are actors and musicians. The inner depth of this sign is unfathomable, and if you help Scorpio children sort through their powerful emotions you will find yourself in the presence of striking and compelling personalities who give much more than they receive.

The younger years are calm given Scorpio's reputation. In fact, Scorpio loves to be a child. This is because there is so much to absorb and learn about the world, and so much love to soak in from parents and family. Scorpio's need for love cannot be overestimated, and you would be wise to show your love through taking the young Scorpio to museums, plays, bookstores, parks, and anything else that will capture their interest. To give a Scorpio something to explore is to give them a lifetime of satisfaction.

Other children may not be as passionate as yours, and therefore your Scorpio child may relate more easily to adults who have already found their passion in life. These relationships may be of great value to them long-term, although strict boundaries must be observed so that they can retreat to their own peer group whenever they feel like "just being a kid" with no explanation necessary!

Mealtime!




I am reposting these pics here. I already posted these at my other blog, but i just find the princess so adorable , i cant help but publish it here:) The first pic was when i placed her at her Kuya's booster chair. She didnt cry at all , i guess she's excited hahaha. I put on her bib and gave her Rice Cereal. She likes it and i didnt had a hard time feeding her. I hope this happens everyday.. Joaqui assisted me of course. He is one excited Kuya im telling you. Every morning, i would tell him, lets go down, Dominique will eat:) And in no time , he's at the door already .

Since my girl is overweight, I dont go all out in feeding her, its just to introduce solids to her .. baka super tumaba na kasi (di pa ba? LOL), she might end up trying those diet pills in the future.

bike for the boy

Last Monday , the dad went home a little early than the usual because he decided to drop by the mall , have dinner and buy me a gift. Who am i to say no? Hahaha. We had a good dinner at one of our fave resto , The Old Spaghetti House (the waiters know us already since we are regular customers LOL). After buying my gift, we went to Toys R Us because a trip to the mall wont be complete without seeing toys. Yeah,my lil boy is happy by just simply looking and trying it out. He didn't even ask us to buy anything.. ang bait (mana sa kin syempre).

The dad is the one whho is so eager to buy him the motorized vehicle for kids. A few models were on sale and the boy happily tested his driving skills. He had fun, but I can tell that he's really not into it. You know what he likes?? A BIKE. Yes , a Mickey Mouse Bike with those support at at the back wheel. .. whatever you call it. I find the price a little steep, so we will just get him one at a bicycle shop LOL .. now we are looking for some outdoor lighting so he can still play even at night when his dad is at home.

Narito ang larawan ng aking kaibigan bago sya pumasok sa simbahan ng araw ng kanyang kasal. Sa bawat bagay na nagtatapos, may panibagong nagsisimula .. Maligayang Huwebes sa lahat!

Black and White

We badly need some wood flooring in our living room, so the husband asked me to look for some online sale to save on material costs. But instead of doing it, i first checked my favorite online shops. LOL. And i found some beautiful dresses for girls. Its in black and white, and i love it




I love the last pic the most. Its nice for semi formal occasions. Maybe i can have this made by the time my little girl is starting to walk. She's carried most of the time for now , so the style of the clothes wont be seen that much :) I better check some shoes to match the dress , then i can start with the hardwood flooring hunt.

This product is said to have calming effects for babies and kids so it is perfect for bedtime. I guess its the lavender scent that is relaxing here. So yeah, i dont need a candle to set a relaxed atmosphere hahaha. I will post an update once i tried this product. Lets see if the scent will last long at Dominique's Hair .. hehehe

I love mommy!

Before i do some work at the laptop before bedtime ( like searching for term life insurance exam advice ), i usually take a few shots of the kids in their sleepwear. Last Saturday night was an extra special night since its the night before Mom's day and my Birthday. I planned what the kids will wear , Hahaha ! Here's the princess..




It was such a lovely night with her, she was so in the mood for picture taking. My little boy , on the other hand was in deep slumber during this time.

Can you imagine , it was 6 months ago when i gave birth to this girl..she's getting bigger everyday!
