Making a Halloween mummy costume for my little monster

Guest post written by Abigail Burke

One of my favorite times of the year is Halloween. I've always loved scary movies and haunted houses, so it's like this season was made especially for me! I think that my kids are the same way because they see how enthusiastic I get about the season.

I asked them a few weeks ago what they wanted to be for Halloween. My daughter told me that she wanted to be a mummy, so I used our wireless internet Pittsburgh to look online for some good costume designs to use to make her costume. I did find several things and decided to base her version off of all the ones that I found.

I thought that it would be cute to make her a little mummy dress and leggings instead of pants and a shirt. So I'm working on sewing all of the torn strips onto her leggings and dress for it. She's pretty girly, so I thought that this would be a great way to reconcile that for this costume. Plus, it's so much cuter than the regular versions!

Baby #2 And Grandma Jean's 1st Meeting

The whole family visited Jean, my FIL's girlfriend in San Antonio last Monday until Wednesday of this week. We are glad we got to see her once again after 8 months. It was baby M and Jean's first meeting together, and guess what? It made her Christmas! She was just so happy to have us in her place. She is like a family to us and us to her. Imagine she hasn't seen nor visited by her own sons in 30 years!

When we bade goodbye to her after the third day, we got her teary-eyed. Poor old woman, she had nobody, not a single blood family visited her on Christmas...nobody but US!

...... photos above and below show of our arrival to her place on Dec.26,2011..

Home Insurance

When I was still in the Philippines I didn't know anything about home insurance. It seems like nobody would care to buy a home insurance for their house except of course those who are rich and have huge house and have a lot to lose when a natural calamity or fire occur.

When I got here in the U.S I understood how important it is to have a home insurance for houses here are so expensive, it is the biggest or most expensive investment a person can have so it is just right to have your home insured for in case of damage or fire or whatever circumstance that you need insurance to pay for it, you can have something to use or a company to turn to.

I have several friends in the UK, they too have home insurance. I think it's great to have it although other companies would cost so much to ordinary working people.

Structured Settlements

Money is always tight these days so as much as possible try to avoid situations wherein you pay ample amount of money due to negligence or carelessness because it can truly break your wallet, I tell you! Lucky you if you are the one receiving structured settlement payments. A structured settlement by the way is a financial or insurance arrangement, defined by Internal Revenue Code as periodic payments; a claimant accepts to resolve a personal injury tort claim or to compromise a statutory periodic payment obligation. Structured settlements were first utilized in Canada then became popular in the US in the 70's as an alternative to lump sum settlements.

A company called Solid Funding is one of the top structured settlement funding companies in the United States. They have accomplished this by compiling investors from all of the world to providing their clients the lowest discount rates in the industry.

Making Sugar Cookies

I had a great time making sugar cookies for the first time in my life. I thought it was going to be another failed try doing something pertaining to baking. My girl was with me the entire time I did my cookies. She helped me cut the dough into different shapes and bake it. After the cookies are done, we both enjoyed decorating it. Not only I taught her about shapes and colors but also I got to spend time with her in the kitchen, it was indeed a mother and daughter bonding moment together while the husband was looking after the baby.

Here are some photographs of us while in the kitchen. I can tell how much my Jadyn enjoyed the activity!
......... great working hands cutting the cookie dough
........the shapes we made ready to bake....
.......chadaaaaaaaa they're done...now ready for some decoration
........ Jadyn expressing her creativity......
.......her finished job, she did a great job doing these!

Ready For School

Last night we talked about sending our first born to school next school year. I don't like the idea my child going to school because that only means she is no longer a baby. There is nothing I can do but send her to school for her to learn and be able to socialize with other kids. When Jadyn heard about school she got so excited for she can ride a school bus that will bring her to school. And then when in school, she will see lots of kids and a teacher.

As the conversation went on, she then asked me, mommy am I going to have my own locker? I said what? I was very surprised upon hearing her question for how did she know anything about lockers? I asked her where she learned about it and she said, on t.v. She even said, there are big and small lockers, big lockers are for big people and small lockers are for kids! What a smart girl she is. I also told her that yes you right and teachers have their office lockers too! Then she was all happy as the we ended the conversation.

Online Sports Betting

I am not into sports nor my husband. I do love the computer a lot and playing different applications on Facebook is my addiction. I could go for hours doing games that I like such as bejeweled blitz and tetris battle.

How about you dear readers? Does anyone love sports? I bet a lot of people are into supports and others would probably go to the internet just to bet or cheer on their favorite team or player. What a better way to bet on sports of your favorite sports team or teams rather than doing
online sports betting? Thanks to the internet for it makes things easier. For those who are fans of sports of any kind, view an upcoming game of your favorite team and show your support to the favorite player of yours.

Filipino-American Christmas Parties

I thought my Christmas was gonna be boring for we usually have Christmas in the USA with our family alone. Although there were some invitations from the past but the location itself is quite far from the house so I wasn't willing to have my husband drive us back and forth only to be at the party. Two Christmas parties I attended just this month and each party was a blast. The first party was in Watauga and we had an exchange gift. I am happy with what I got because it is exactly what I've been thinking to buy for our kitchen.



......shots of my little girl bringing the gift to me and opened it...this was last December 18 in Watauga the first party we went to...

........chadaaaaaaaaaaaa and here's what's in the box, a decorative candle holder, there's 2 of them actually which I so love!
........and the last photo is of me and my baby and Selina also a blogger..
Here are some photos of us on Christmas eve, a different group of Filipinas just three blocks away from our home...

Lost In The Dark

I had such a blast during the Filipino-American Christmas party two night ago. It was one of the times that I stayed longer at a party for the venue was just three blocks away from our house. If it was a lot farther away, I could only stay at least four hours because usually my friends hold an event at their place on Sundays. But since I don't drive it is always my husband that drops and picks us off and he has to work Monday so we need to come home early.

Anyhow, I am glad my Filipina neighbor decided to invite me for a Christmas party! I brought with me my two kids, Megan the infant wasn't able to take a nap the whole time we were there because she is not used to being in a large crowd plus we had karaoke and it was loud and noisy. I didn't expect my little one to sleep at all. A friend of mine volunteered to drop Megan home and just come back for some fun, she has a brilliant idea and went home and put the baby to sleep.

It was dark, raining and very cold yet we head back to the party. Even just it is three blocks away we somehow got lost in our very own neighborhood, funny! I must admit, it is hard to locate a house in newer neighborhood today since most of the houses just look all similar plus they do have very small house number in them. If only all houses would choose to have personalized address plaques or do
custom address plaques of their choosing, it would be easy to locate a specific in that neighborhood. There is a company that sells residential address plaques for people. It would be nice if home owners decide to have one so people won't get lost in the dark trying to find their house or address.

Shoes Are Women's Bestfriend

It's wintertime and in the weather forecast, there might be some snow today. Great! Looks like we are having a white Christmas this year which is another blessing to be thankful for. Haha funny how I view snow to be a blessing. I should because I love it and here in Texas we can only have snow once or twice a year. I am so ready for snow for I have my boots ready, they are similar to Miz Mooz Bloom but they are not of the same brand.

I love the how the snow can turn the world into when it falls onto the ground. The surroundings will become white as if it is so pure and free from sin. Snow is fun to play with too especially with small kids around. But of course, when there is snow, the temperature can drop low as well so before heading outside, bundle up and wear the right outfit for snow.

If you have an event to attend, don't forget to show off your best attire including wearing stylish and comfortable boots like Miz Mooz Siri or if you are comfortable with regular pump shoes, you can choose to wear your Miz Mooz Felicity. Have a Merry Christmas everyone!

Typhoon Sendong Dramatic Rescue of Survivors








Here's a dramatic actual video during the rescue of flash flood survivors. They were rescued by M/V YANG A, chartered by HOLCIM CEMENT. There were 8 of them (3 adults and 5 children including 2 yrs.old daughter. They were washed away at least 12 km. from the nearest land of ILIGAN. Thank God for sparing their lives. God help them recover from this traumatic experience and accept those lost souls in His kingdom. May He also heals those aching heart of the survivors whose loved ones have died and still missing!

Backyard Project To Be Continued

Our yard is a mess right now. The fencing company we hired to do the fence as well as putting a concrete in the backyard is putting off their job until after New Year. The reason why it's because the building permit that my husband applied was denied by the city. For some reason, in order to replace your old fence you got to apply for a permit for that. Much worse, there is a building restriction in this area so residents are not allowed to put up a car port visible to the street. But my husband isn't just wanting a cheap car port, he wants a workshop, a better building an owner can be proud to have in the backyard yet he is still denied with that.

It would be a dream come true for him if one day he will be able to have a place to park his cars under the roof and be able to work on stuff comfortably. And for me, it would be a dream come true if I can do something so beautiful with our backyard garden. Put an arbor maybe? These things are commonly seen at the park, public garden etc where people can take photographs in garden arbors or wooden arbors.

I know it may look ridiculous having an arbor in the backyard but aren't arbors look great wherever they are placed? We shall see if the husband would approve of my idea having an arbor in the backyard and make it a mini flower garden out there.

Carpet Cleaning Austin

My mission before this year ends, I would love to do a thorough cleaning of the house. I want to clean the carpet and all three ceiling fans as well as we greet the New Year. I will try my best to get all these things done, really! I know I have been saying this for so long yet nothing has done just because I have so many things to do around the house yet I have so little time to do it all at once, plus I do have kids. Not to mention, it gets very dark here now at 5:00 in the afternoon.

Anyway, cleaning each respective house seems to be the subject of every woman on Facebook. We do have the same goal before the year ends. A friend of mine down South said she will just hire a professional group of carpet cleaning service, the http://www.thesteamteam.com/austin-carpet-cleaning, a company based in Austin. Also there are people who want to have their carpet cleaned in Round Rock, I told my friend to let them visit the Carpet Cleaning Round Rock website or office.

Wordless Wednesday #:Typhoon Sendong Wrec Havoc In CDO and Iligan Cities


In Times Of Calamity Devastation

I guess most of you know about the devastation of typhoon Sendong in Cagayan De Oro and Iligan Cities, right? pictures and videos of the worst hit cities were flooding on all social networking sites so I believe most if not all have seen it no matter where they are in the world. Those properties were washed out as well as their houses for sure are not insured.

In times of calamity devastation, who we should turn to in order to rebuild our home if we don't have home insurance? So poor are the Filipino victims who have lost everything! While some people outside the Philippines are having a good time shopping and eating good foods, think back of the fellow Filipinos who have nothing, they are people who rely on donations right now.

Anyway, let's go back to home insurance. To those in the UK, have you ever thought of changing your home insurance to a different company? Please do so and find out a specialist home insurance in your area. For when calamity strikes, you will be assured that you are covered!

A Time Of Giving And Sharing


I am devastated of what happened to CDO and Iligan City. Of all places in the world,why this had to happen in these two cities where they were badly hit by typhoon Sendong. The pictures and videos shared on Facebook is so heartbreaking! I can't help but felt pity to those who died and lost their loved ones. It's just too painful to see.

Christmas is just around the corner, isn't the real meaning of Christmas is giving and sharing? It's the perfect time to show our compassion to fellow Filipinos! Please donate any amount you have, please do so , any amount can help a lot of families. I did my part, donated to two separate groups that collect money through paypal. Now it's your turn. Please send any amount to this paypal address: marquee_29@yahoo.com.

LET US PRAY TOGETHER:

Dear God, bless all people everywhere specially our brothers and sisters who have been affected by typhoon Sendong. Please touch the heart of people who haves to share, that they may feed the hungry and clothe them. Let the homeless find places to live and attain inner peace. May we all live as One and be united in you God. As the Magi travel far just to reach their gifts to you, may we take extra mile just to extend our help to those in need, for this is what was “Christmas” is all about and meant to be, a season of giving, sharing and Love! Dear Lord, also continue to help me, my family and friends in our difficulties. May this Christmas Bring lots of Love and Peace to all of us. Amen!

Repairing Your Credit Score

I once told by a friend years back that it is important to build my own credit score because someday I may need it. Although my husband has a good credit score, she told me that it cannot be transferred to my name so I have to build my own. Five years later I still haven't done anything about it. Sigh!

Anyway, for now I don't see any need for it but I know time will come that I would regret for not acting fast or not doing something to start building a credit score. How am I going to do this? I should search on the internet on raising credit score fast so I will have the knowledge on how to get it all started.

How about you people out there? When did you start building your own credit score? Do you have a bad credit score or struggling to fixing your credit? Learn which company can help you that offers the best credit repair service or if you are in the process of rebuilding your credit and you want it fast, please visit this link here on how to rebuild credit fast. Times may get tough but it is never too late to rebuild your credit.

Baby Doll Turns 5 Months Today!

Here is my ever lovable, smiling, giggly, happy and cute little Pearl. I took these photos yesterday looking so happy from the Christmas party!

By the way, she turns five months today at 10:44 in the morning. Wow time pass by us quickly, it seems like I cannot get enough of this cute baby girl of mine especially the babyish smell of her neck and mouth! I think it is the sweetest smell of all. Love you baby girl! Hope you will always stay as good as you are and healthy!



Backyard Looks Great

I went to a Filipino Christmas party yesterday and I had a lot of fun especially my first born. As usual my husband dropped us off and came back a few hours later to pick us up again. I expected my husband to not stay. Instead he went home and worked in his front and backyard. When I came home from the party, it was dark and I didn't see any job he had done to it but he told me backyard looks great.

When I woke up this morning and looked outside and yes, he was right! Our backyard looks neat and clean now for he mowed it good and put all the pots on the concrete. Anyhow, it would even look good if we had a nice outdoor bamboo furniture and artificial rocks to compliment with the bamboo furniture.

When it is not very cold, we love to just hangout in the back porch with our outdoor fireplace. The husband loves it out there to sit down and have his quiet moment drinking beer right after work.

Mellow Yellow Monday: My Homemade Pizza


MellowYellowMondayBadge


Today's entry for MYM is my cute little homemade pizza. I don't know what the flavor of this pizza because it has all the healthiest ingredients a pizza should have. I put here sliced mushrooms, pineapple, tomato sauce, shredded mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, onions and red bell pepper! I made two but only ate a whole pie because there's so much stuff in it that made me full very quick!

Buying New Cell Phones

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of LG DoublePlay™ for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Oh wow, there are at least several people in my Facebook friends that are showing their new cell phones. A few bought Apple and there are those that prefer the LG DoublePlay™. How nice of them. If I were to choose which phone should I get, I would go for LG DoublePlay. Why? Because of these reasons, firstly because it is equipped with dual customizable touch screens 3/4 a 3.5-inch main display and 2.0-inch subdisplay 3/4 that operate independently, a full slide-out  QWERTY keyboard and Swype for easy text input. Not only that, this phone also allows users to perform multiple tasks at once like updating Facebook pages while surfing the web simultaneously.

Secondly, this phone is available exclusively at T-Mobile. You would be delighted to check out LG DoublePlay if you spend most of your time surfing the web and updating your Facebook page all the time using your cell phone.

But since I am not much of a cell phone user, I guess I just have to stick with my same old phone for now. I can send text messages in a month maybe just 10 or more messages.  I used to have a subscription in which I can have unlimited data and internet on my phone and as far as I can remember, I spent at least 5 or 6 hours doing the social networking on it.

However though, I would highly recommend this cell phone to my readers for the good features it offers. Please visit the link above to read more of the features of this phone and see how it amazes you knowing that it is a much better phone to have than any other phone you can find on the market today. And before I end this posting, you folks please try to answer the following questions for me and leave your answers in the comment section of my blog. Thanks!

How  many hours do you spend texting and engaging in Social networking site on your phone?

 

 
How do you think The LG DoublePlay would change the way you interact with your Social Network?

My Kids Are My Joy

Women or people who don't have kids won't understand how it is to feel having a kid or two around. In times of boredom, I have my kids to cheer me up or give me so much happiness although there are times that my first born is testing my patience but still I am having more time enjoying with her as well as the second baby especially that she offers nothing but her genuine smile when I need it.

My kids are my joy and they are the reason why I continue to live. Someday when they are old enough to understand that mommy's love and affection to them is beyond measure, they will appreciate it.

Kool-Aid The Thirst Quencher

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kool Aid for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Most of my friends have kids and some of them have kids who are grown ups and going to school. This is good news for them since there are kids that love drinking Kool-Aid and bring it to their school. If any of you out there who are fanatic of Kool-aid, please go to the Kool-Aid Facebook fan page and click the tab that reads "Noches de PeliKoola" for your coupon.  For those  who don't know Spanish, click the button with the money sign ($) that reads "Quiero Mi Cupรณn"  or in English "I Want My Coupon".

Please also visit the "Bingo Card" feature on the same tab, each card has a tasty Kool-Aid recipe to try! These are fun to use while watching "Noches de Pelicula" on Telemundo with the family. Lastly, don't forget to check out Kool-Aid for some amazing recipes. I would love to try the double berry smoothie for this is what I crave right now and perhaps my three-year old daughter will love it too.

I remember when I was growing up, my mother would always prepare me some drinks to bring to school, preferably Kool-Aid  and would demand the orange-mango flavor to quench my thirst. It was the best drink I ever had during my school days. My mother, myself and my siblings all love Kool-Aid even until now because they are inexpensive and easy to prepare. Doesn't take much time to do it especially my mother is always in a hurry.

Anybody wants to share their fondest memory with Kool-Aid out there?

Wordless Wednesday: Begging For Milk And Cereal



Shipping Deadlines

I think I have completed my shopping for the two little kids I have. They already have their new beautiful Christmas dresses, toys are done although there are still two coming on the way need to be wrapped. I also sent out at least two separate packages for my friends's daughters locally and one international. I wished I made up my mind on what to give to the other two favorite girls of mine.

Now that the stores and post offices are busy packed with people trying to get their shopping and shipping done, how am I going to finish mine and not worrying that my packages will arrive on time?
I don't like the idea of shopping in the mall these days because I know full well what is going on there, heavy traffic plus you will have to fall in long lines in check out. Shopping online would best since there are sites that offer Shipping Deadlines to their customers and that I trust that the items would be here before Christmas day.

Also, when shopping online I can just look for some Newegg Coupons for different items I want to buy today for a more discount aside from already marked down items, with the use of coupons I can get even more deals with it. Again there are Christmas Shipping Deadlines 2011 on the internet if you choose to shop online so there is no need to worry.

Great Deals Flooding

I am waiting few packages to arrive in the mail today and maybe in the next two days. I expected for the toys I ordered online to be here anytime today and a package from a friend for my little girls. I also am done wrapping up the gifts for both of my girls but I have not placed them under the tree yet for I don't want my first born to be bugging me opening the gifts before Christmas day. Might as well wait for the Christmas eve to come and place them where they should be.

Yes, we have spent a fair amount of money for our kids but honestly, I can never feel I am done with my Holiday shopping yet. There are still a lot of things need to buy especially for my first born whose birthday is approaching in a few weeks. Today is the right time to shop for stuff while great deals are still flooding online or at local stores. So many things to buy I have in my mind but we only got limited budget that is why it is important for me to really look for the lowest or the cheapest finds possible in order to save some money.

Gladly though there are websites that offer promotion codes or just generous enough to help customers find that deal we are looking for. Sites like Nomorerack.com brings such a huge help when it comes to scoring great deals on the internet. However, I heard there are people called this website nomorerack scam. How come? While there maybe unhappy customers who have purchased products from them in the past, that doesn't mean the rumor is true. I have read a lot of positive nomorerack reviews and I am convinced that it is truly a legitimate website.

If you could spend a few minutes of your time peeking on Nomorerack.com website and look for their insanity deals, you can expect your eyes would pop out because of the really low prices they sell their items for. I have never seen such deals before so I need to register myself there before they run out of items to sell.

Mellow Yellow Monday : Beautiful Dress Like A Princess

Gosh I so love this dress on the internet. I couldn't take my eyes off it! This would perfectly look good in my soon to be 4 firstborn girl. I am desperate buying this one in time for Christmas and her birthday next month but sadly, it is no longer available in 4T size! However, it is available in their stores but it is kind of far from here. Geeezz!

My entry for today's MYM!

Marcus Evans Complaints

The most awful could ever happen to a person is to get scammed on the internet and lose all his hard-earned money because of some low-life, criminal and shameless people out there. I have been reading articles and complaints on this so-called home paying jobs or business operators that act as legitimate and real while their sole purpose is to suck all other people's money. One big example is this Marcus Evans Complaints. Although it is not shown on the link given here but I read other article about this certain person of the scams he made to a lot of innocent people in his area or who knows even on the internet.

People like Marcus Evans don't deserve to live freely on the streets, he deserves to be punished and lock up in the cell where there is no escape or under tight security so there will be no more innocent victims in the world.

The Beauty Of Fall

This is what I love most around this time of the year because this is when our surroundings turn very colorful and lovely. There is no need to go someplace just to see beautiful scenery. In this neighborhood alone, you can take pretty good photos of the colorful leaves of trees by the pond. It is just so close to our home that I find it easy to get there with my kids on foot.

It is just a small pond with in this village yet there plenty of things to look at, colorful trees, lots of floating ducks on the water and some big birds on the tree. We can also feed the ducks and turtles if we want to, we only need to bring some dry dog food or bird seeds and voila! My kids will have their happy times at the pond. Photos were taken by me personally on December 9,2011.

....... first photo is the road going to the pond. Actually the pond is right behind that orange tree where my girls are standing under it.
..... the entrance to the pond, looks like a mini park here but it is actually a backyard of our neighbor...
........ here's the bridge that connects the small piece of land close to the pond and the main land...soooooo pretty are the fallen leaves and the surrounding trees. love love love it!
..... more photos of the pond...

Gives Beauty To The Window

I am a woman who loves flowers and plants. In fact, I have my own backyard garden, two big round plant beds in our front yard and a few potted plants. I admired how beautiful the plants and flowers are when in bloom that is why I had to make my own plant beds where I can grow different flowering plants in Spring.

Since we are getting into Winter season, my poor plants died and all turned brown and really dead except for the knockout roses! I love them, they are not affected by freezing temperature instead they still give me pretty blooms. Next year I will try to put more plants in my beds to close the gap of each stems of my plants and make it more beautiful.

Another thing I want to do is put window box planters on the East part of the house where it looks so boring there since my husband doesn't want anything planted on the ground on that side there. Now that I found a way on how to give our windows looking great from the street, might as well start looking around for window flower boxes or window plant boxes and see if I can find the right size, color and style I want online.

Gadgets On Their Wishlist

People on my Facebook list are jotting down their wishes on their walls. Many are wishing to have the latest gadgets and electronics you can find possible in the market. While that can be good to someone who receive the gift, it might be too much for the person who is going to make someone's wish come true this Christmas.

For those who haven't done their Christmas shopping yet and are planning of buying electronics or high technology gadgets, here are coupons for you that you can use in order to save bucks. Coupons like Think Geek coupons, Dell coupon and ThinkGeek promo code to be entered during checkout. Just don't forget to save yourself some money. We know, Christmas time is also the time your pocket gets broke.

As for us here, I already got what I wanted to have this year, new purses, winter boots and a new laptop computer so I am good. I also shopped some educational toys for my little girls online just moments ago. I paid almost a hundred bucks for it but surely the husband wouldn't mind as the toys are educational and they are for his kids. I wished I had coupons to use for those toys because it pains me knowing that I paid so much money on something that will eventually being outgrown with. Anyway, the shopping is done so my mind is at ease now knowing that they can have some presents under the tree soon.

Toys On The List

These are toys on the list that I'd love to get for my kids for Christmas. Hopefully their dada approves of me buying new toys for the girls. These are fun yet educational toys they can play that is why I really would love to get them for the girls. Also, the little one needs her own toys for the big sister doesn't wanna share her toys with her baby sister, poor thing!




Switch To Green Dot Prepaid Card

Through the use of those little plastic things we call debit and credit cards make every shopping convenient, easy and fast both online and in local stores. People would just swipe their cards without the need of counting their money for the card itself does the counting electronically. But using these cards have also their disadvantages, they are making people to spend more because they think that they can just pay the balance later or if they use a credit card, they can borrow money from the bank anytime they want and just pay it whenever they can of course with an interest.

However, there are people who are budget conscious. Meaning they watch how much money they have and very careful on their spending so not to get overdraft fees. But hey, let me tell you this, whether you are very careful with your money or you're a spender type of person, there are instances in our lives that cannot be avoided to spend more than what we have in our accounts, right?

If that is the case, applying for a Greed Dot visa debit card is such a good idea. Why? Because it is a reloadable prepaid card wherein you can control your spending. You put money in this card and monitor how much is left there without being charged of overdraft fees when a substantial amount of spending being done to this card for it simply deny the transaction if it is almost out of balance.

Just like a regular debit card, you can use it everywhere safely even on the internet. You can trust that it won't reveal your banking information. Reloadable means you can add cash, paychecks or other funds to the card over and over again. Possessing prepaid debit cards like these is awesome. You can put your mind at ease knowing that you cannot get into credit card debt. It is that simple!

Cuddly Crying Bear

This is my 4 months old crying baby. Cute, isn't she even if she is crying. She is a good girl if you don't know it but she cries if she sits too long on the chair in her swing as if always needing mommy's body heat against her small tiny and delicate body, what a sweet baby she is!

In these photos, she looks like a bear, cuddly like a bear! Love you much baby Sikong!

When putting up a blog online seems so easy for people who do not know what it means to be on the internet. For them, just write and click publish button is all it takes in order to keep your blog running but that is not as easy for me. When I started blogging almost five years ago, I struggled and worked so hard in order for my site to be known on the internet. At first it was easy as I thought for my main purpose of making a blog was personal purposes only but then months later I discovered that I can make money out of it.

That is when my struggles set in. I didn't have traffic in my site everyday and most advertisers want their bloggers to have constant traffic everyday, page rank and etc. But eventually I learned different ways on how to make my blog/s as stable as they are now.

Personalized Gifts

I have been busy doing my bows so I can mail them tomorrow. I prefer to make my own bows and give them as presents because I feel like I give something big to the little girls close to my heart rather than buying ready made products at the mall.

My back is aching and I am not quite done yet. The baby is starting to cry although she is fed but I guess she is needing her mommy's attention now. I guess I may have to pause a while and play with my little girl and just come back and do my thing again once she is asleep again. Geez I really need to finish this project tonight so I can mail them at the post office tomorrow and they will arrive on time.

A Healthy Choice


I did everything I can so Jadyn can eat something heavy for breakfast but I guess Filipino dish for first meal of the day isn't what her taste buds like. I cannot force her to swallow the food I am giving to her so I opted to giving her fruits and a few small pieces of cheese. If she eat it all then I feel good knowing she had eaten something. Strawberry slices and grapes are two of her favorite fruits, gladly we have them in the fridge otherwise she'll starve.

I rarely visit other blogs anymore because I don't have enough time to do it. Unlike before I can spend hours and hours reading and visiting blogs then if I like certain posts, I comment on them. Since I am now a mother of two, time is just too short for me yet too many things need to be done. But anyhow, if I really feel like visiting a blog, I would do it just to kill time.

I prefer a blog that could make its audience laugh just like this blog authored by
yitz grossman, I found a post in his blog that cracks me up, he wrote a very funny joke about someone who thinks he is smarter than the cowboy in the ranch while he knows nothing about cows or a herd of sheep. No wonder yitz grossman was named grossman because he truly is a gross man when it comes to jokes!

You must believe me when I say, this entry is funny or not because I only say things that are true. Click on the second link above, read it and you will find out why until now I still can't stop laughing! If you can't get enough of his writings, please yitz grossman's site for more.
