A Four-Year Old's Dream

My big girl who is four years old broke the record of sleeping in her own bedroom for two nights in a row. I told her daddy to replace or repair the lamp in her bedside table so our girl can just turn it on/off easily without getting up her bed if she needs light which he did. The other night Jadyn just volunteered to sleep in her bedroom without me nagging at her. It was great and so good of her to do that but then at 5 in the morning, she moved to our bed acting scared.

When I woke up at 9, she woke up too telling me why he moved to our bed...because she thought she saw chasing red eyed wolves in the hallway, that's why. I asked her, are you sure it wasn't a dream, Jadyn? That is when she agreed with me that it might just a dream! Last night was her second night and she slept there all through the night until the morning.

When she woke up this morning she uttered, Mommy, I slept in my bedroom! Then I applauded her and said what she did was very good and brave. I know what to do now to keep Jadyn to sleep in her room, I would bring my computer in there and wait until she snores then leave the room and go to bed as well.

Mellow Yellow Monday : A Pair of Yellow Top and Brown Pants for Less Than $5


I scored these beautiful yellow eyelet halter top for my toddler for $1.49 and a pair of brown pants for $2.00 couple of weeks ago in Goodwill. They are new and very pretty. How awesome it is finding these deals at thrift stores like Goodwill? I took my time digging for great awesome stuff and these are just one of those things I dug! Where else can you find such outfit for less than $5, tell me?

Corporate Gifting

It is the employees who make small and big corporations succeed and gain profit. If not because of their hard work and dedication I don't think any businesses or company will ever prosper. If you are a boss or owns a company and you feel like you appreciate somebody in your network deserves a corporate gift, please do not hesitate to let that employee/s know you noticed them and that you are very grateful they belong to your organization. You can do so by giving her if she is a woman spa gift sets. That way, she will do her best in order to do her job with all her might for the future of your company.

Best uses of corporate gifting are for both holidays and as a token of gratitude. One best example a corporate gifting fits is sending a gift to your favorite customer shows or expresses gratitude for their business as well as sending them a message that they are someone important with whom you would like to maintain business.

Home Insurance Quotes

Spring is almost here which only mean one thing, tornadoes! It is the time of year when Texas suffers strong winds, thunderstorms and worst tornadoes. While I like the temperature Spring brings us I also hate the idea of tornado happening during this season. Many lost their homes from last year's devastation. For sure not all home owners have insurance for their homes. There are those that cannot afford to buy one for their home. If only they can get to the internet and find that there are some insurance companies offer free home insurance quotes. They offer a wide range of insurance policies and contents best suitable for every home owner's budget.

My Experience With Unique Photo Coupons

Guest post by Alan Weber

Ever since I got my iPhone 4S, I'm completely obsessed with it. I've bought every type of accessory possible such as covers and blue tooth. My most recent obsession is finding iPhone wallpapers. I have so many different types right now, and I pretty much buy a new one every day. Depending on my mood, I change my wallpaper from puppies to bands.

In addition to having a wallpaper that I enjoy looking at, I also like the fact that I can get pictures for a discounted price. When I'm not searching for ways to enhance my phone, I'm busy fixing up my new apartment. I have most of the furniture, and now I'm just trying to make it look pretty and inviting. I went to a photo store nearby,and the prices were over the top. Luckily I found a website that I use often for frames and other photo needs, when I searched unique photo coupons. I was then able to get my frames and albums with an extra savings in addition to the low prices.

In addition to the low prices of my wallpapers and frames, there's even better great news. Because I'm part of a free shipping buying club, there are some times that I was even able to get my items shipped for free. Getting the items I want at great prices, what else can be better?

Acting Like A "Mommy"

I don't know what's inside of my 4-year old's mind when her baby sister cries or makes baby noise. She would stop her by saying "Baby Megan stop making noise, I'm watching t.v..I can't hear my show!" or shush her by saying "SHHHHHHHHHH SHHHHHH SHHHHHHH". When the dog barks near the t.v and she's there sitting on the chair, she would yell at the dog saying "doggy stop barking!, doggyyyyyy stooooppp barking!!!!" which is double the noise you hear when she does that.

Instead of making the noise to stop she'd added to it which for me is annoying at times. Other times, I laugh at her because she is acting like a "mommy", so matured in thinking and determined to really stop the noise around her! What a kid she is!

Enjoying The Outdoor

67 degrees Fahrenheit is the current temperature right here and I am outside tapping on my computer at the same time babysitting. So perfect to spend sometime out here in the backyard listening to the sound of airplane in the sky, chirping birds, dogs barking and watching my girls playing. The big girl is pushing her little sister back and forth using the stroller, perfect!

While writing this entry, I am also on Facebook exchanging comments with three friends talking about starting our garden early since the weather is just pretty good. I cannot wait for March to come, I can start planting the seeds anytime but I have to make sure it's not gonna get cold anymore so I will just wait for March. My garden is a mess right now. The husband took out all the soil in the barrels so if he's not gonna fix my garden, I will have to plant directly on the ground.

Big Events Like American Idol Audition

I am a big fan of American Idol. This show is something that I look forward every January because it gives me pure entertainment, I can get to listen to the great voices who are yet to be discovered and most of all I can get to watch Jennifer Lopez on t.v for I admire her so much.

In big events like American Idol audition, a huge crowd is expected to gather in an open space, therefore, coordinators and staff of the event should use a crowd control in order to make it happen as well as organize an orderly control of the crowd and help people stay in lines. Most used during this event are stanchions and
barricades. These are just two of the many crowd control products that they can use. Not only they are used for this specific event but at the banks, for concerts, political events or even at the airport and grocery store as well.

Goodbye TXU Energy

If my husband didn't talk to me about the comparison of electricity prices we paid between TXU and Reliant Energy I could have not known that he switched from TXU to Reliant since last month. Apparently, the reason why is that we've been paying so much on TXU considering that he is a long time customer. With TXU, we paid 30% more plus 10% during those hot summer days while Reliant energy billed us a much lower amount than of TXU.

Well, I really am not so convinced about Reliant yet because we have not been using a lot of heat this winter because it isn't so cold this year. I would agree with my husband that switching to Reliant was a good idea months from now when it gets very hot and we receive our energy bill. I hope it won't be choking high though. So I bid goodbye TXU. That's what you get if you don't value your old time customers. I wonder how many of their loyal customers from the past have switched too?

Smorty Is Vanished Along with my $$

This is so disappointing to know that one of the legitimate (that's what I thought) paid blogging sites I joined in from years back is gone along with my $104 worth of opportunities I made for them last December. I wrote to Smorty Support at least three times and each time they reply to me they would say the same thing. The short letter below proves how irresponsible they are. I first joined their force last 2007 and back then, opportunities were abundant and they paid their bloggers on time.


Recently a portion of bloggers have been removing older posts and we needed to hold the most recent payment to all bloggers we try to counter this fraudulent activity. The bloggers who is checked the posts are being paid. 


Last December 2011, there were a few pretty good tasks with reasonable payouts so I took advantage of it and wrote at least 8 or 9 tasks. Positive enough that I can be paid within two weeks, I grabbed another 2 more. Days turned into weeks and weeks into months nothing happened. Until one day... I COULD NO LONGER OPEN THEIR WEBSITE. I was shocked and almost in disbelief that they vanished and not paying the money I earned. How can they do such a thing? For sure there are many bloggers out there too waiting to be paid, right? Tell me I am not alone on this?

Wordless Wednesday: A Soiled Doll Needs To Be Washed

London-Headquartered Translation Service Agency

I must admit learning different languages is not easy. But knowing at least 2 or 3 different languages give you a better chance at getting certain jobs that require an employee to speak a language aside his or her own. It is beneficial to someone who dreams of working abroad and be a translator, perhaps a tourist guide.

With this being said, lucky are those who are spontaneous, smart and speak different languages for they have a bright future ahead of them. They can work for big companies that deal business globally with confidence.

As for companies looking for a translation services, Rosetta translation, a UK-headquartered agency wants to offer you all fast and efficient certified translation services to suit your needs. They are a long-standing member of the Association of Translation companies, they can issue certificates of authenticity.

The company is specializing in business translations to corporate customers across all languages. Rest assured this agency can greatly help you provide with either notarized translations or certified translation service which are recognized by most official bodies, both in the UK and abroad.

I would suggest it would be good if you can visit the website itself or click the links above and look at the different services they offer aside from notarization/certification services.

Jury Duty Scam

Pass this on to your grown children and anyone else you can think of. This is said to have been verified by the FBI (their link is also included below). Please pass this on to everyone in your email address book.

It is spreading fast so be prepared should you get this call. Most of us take those summonses for jury duty seriously, but enough people skip out on their civic duty that a new and ominous kind of fraud has surfaced.

. . . The caller claims to be a JURY DUTY coordinator. If you protest that you never received a summons for jury duty, the Scammer asks you for your Social Security number and date of birth so he or she can verify the information and cancel the arrest warrant. Give out any of this information and bingo: your identity was just stolen.

The fraud has been reported so far in 11 states, including Oklahoma , Illinois , and Colorado , AZ and more. This (swindle) is particularly insidious because they use intimidation over the phone to try to bully people into giving information by pretending they are with the court system.

The FBI and the federal court system have issued nationwide alerts on their web sites, warning consumers about the fraud.

Mellow Yellow Monday: Holding Her Own Bottle


My baby has reached many important milestones in her life at age 6 months. In a few days she will turn 7 months. She is growing big, happy and smiling as ever! At first, I thought she was lazy in her earlier months for she wouldn't hold her bottle. I had to use a bulky cloth just to position or aim the bottle correctly tilted to her mouth so she can suck from it but when she reached 6 months of age, she just held it like a pro. Amazing she did it naturally.

Photo below is a shot of her feeding herself of course wearing her yellow sleepers. Happy MYM everyone.

"Disadvantaged" Shop Lifter Black Woman

I guess our day to go shopping yesterday at Hulen Mall wasn't our lucky day. Myself, my daughter and a friend Jazzmine went to the mall so full of excitement but that was cut short when an unthinkable thing happened right after an hour we were there. Our first stop was Macy's. I was so touched by her for she offered me to buy me a handbag as her gift to me, we went through a couple of bags before I found that handbag I really liked. A Kathy Van Zeeland satchel. After we paid for it, we headed to Old Navy right across the street, we bought a few things there for her and for my girls.

She was wearing a red coat and it felt so warm inside the store so I told her to take it off and jam it in the Macy's paper bag since it was big enough for her coat (she wanted to put our newly bought stuff all in the same bag and I stopped her for she would wrinkle her coat, if she insisted we could have lost all our items). She did. We crossed the street back to the main building of the mall and went directly to Body Central store. After picking some pretty clothes we went to their fitting room. We used the biggest one as it was vacant bringing all the stuff we bought from previous stores in that room. The sales woman heard there were two people in that fitting room and it wasn't allowed so Jazzmine moved to the other room to try fitting her chosen clothes. Her handbag along with that big Macy's bag were left in the room where I was.

It didn't take me long to finish for I only had a blouse to try on and a belt. So I grabbed our stuff that was on the chair in that room (thinking I had all our stuff in my hands) and left that cubicle, on my way out I saw a black woman just came in and asked me if I was also waiting for a vacant room and I said no, go ahead use the big one for I am done in there.

I never left the fitting room for my friend was still there and waited outside her door at the same time talking to her and my daughter. Unaware that I forgot to take with me the Macy's bag and I didn't realize that until Jazzmine was done trying on all at least 8 clothing. It took her a while to get out that room where she was at.

Then we were ready to check out until we both looked where the Macy's bag was. Oh oh! We realized we don't have it and the only place she could think of where she put it was in the big room I was using. The black woman was still in there so we knocked on the door saying "Is there a Macy's bag in there?" (we asked the wrong question, we could have said it this way "I forgot my Macy's bag inside, can I get it?"). She said no, Jazzmine went there and knocked then I called the sales woman and she knocked as well asking the same thing. After being knocked 3 times, that "disadvantaged" thief black woman got furious, opened the door and said straight to my eyes, "Are you accusing me?" and slammed the door on me. Our voices started to raise but I don't think it was loud enough to catch other shoppers' attention.

I am pretty sure she was the one who stole our stuff. She took her time in that freaking room putting the stuff in her big bag, my satchel was a small one so easy to put it in hers and fold the coat and baby sweater, put them in my satchel and VOILA! I never left the fitting room, not a second and that shop lifter never left the room also so I couldn't suspect anyone but her.

I should have insisted that she took it, I could have raised the pressure on her and demanded to open the bag or at least call the store manager and have him/her nicely ask to open her bag. BUT NO, we were scared of her. She was a big and FAT woman, what can skinny Asians do? We thought. I didn't do anything further because we didn't want to make a scene!

What is most disappointing and discouraging in that place is that two of the sales associates (also black women) didn't even care. We asked if there is a camera in the fitting room or at the entrance of the store but they said no. We were hopeless for I see no concern in their faces, they didn't care about their customers at all, didn't bother to call the thief prevention control or Satan to at least inform them what is going on. To think that Body Central is my most favorite place shopping for dresses, I was so heart broken of them.

We identified the suspect, we should have never let her leave the store until somebody will do something about it. We could have called the police at least and tell them there is a shop lifting in progress in that store. What if we've done that? Could she be arrested? Who knows she has a series of criminal records piled up.

For sure it wasn't the first time she did it and so unfortunate of us, we were victimized by her. I am also pretty sure that she will keep doing it and eventually get caught. Thief BLACK WOMAN doesn't deserve to be in the society... KARMA is a bitch, bitch! God is watching you.

I am so heart broken not because I care of the price of what we lost but because of the fact that some assholes did that to us!

Living Doll

A living doll, that's how I describe my little girl. When I look at her, I see a cute doll with breathing. I find her to be so cute and oh I must love my own flesh and blood for I admire my own baby, lol.

I am just one lucky momma for having such an adorable little girl. Oh well, both of my girls are adorable I shall say. The photo on the right is of me and my baby one chilly afternoon. If you take a glance of her, you can almost say or as, is she real or a playing doll?

Infected With Virus

I regret for viewing Tagalog soap operas on tvpinoy.com for it has a virus that infected my computer. I heard so many complaints from viewers from the past that sites like these are often have virus in them and that when it hits your computer rest assured you will get infected too yet I did not listen. Instead, I went on and on watching this only soap opera that I am so crazy about. Here's the punishment, this computer I am using right now is so slow and cannot save downloaded graphics. It acted up 2 days ago and I worry what if the virus or malware can harm my files and totally crash my computer?

If only I can buy a dependable malware remover online that won't cost me much, I would be glad to do it. And if this certain software can totally clean my computer without the need of bringing this to a computer shop, I would be very glad!

Security Measure

Most industrial companies won't allow their employees bringing cellphones or any types of gadgets that could jeopardize their security. Why? Is it because they are afraid somebody from the inside would communicate people from the outside and intrude their privacy? Whatever their reasons are, they are the ones who know. Often the company provide phone lockers to their workers.

There are even some that won't allow even valuable items inside the working premises such as wallets and other stuff so what they do is provide them with a wallet locker. Well, that can be great but I feel the employees' concerns that it get broken into and take their precious stuff away. Crimes can happen anytime of the day and anywhere. But anyway, if people would secure their wallet lockers I don't think it can easily be opened and broken into.

Wordless Wednesday : I Hate Growing Up!

Become A Tax Preparer

Another month has ended, welcome February! This only means that we are going to celebrate Valentine's Day in 13 days and most of all, we are just 3 months away until the last day of filing our tax from last year's income. I know most of you have already filed your income taxes and probably already received or will receive your tax refunds soon. How awesome!

As for us here, we haven't done it, we are still waiting on some forms to arrive before we file ours. Last year was a disaster because we only received $500 income tax return at first because our tax preparer screwed our child's name. That happened, makes me want to take a income tax course if possible so we can do it ourselves in the future and we can save money from paying somebody to prepare the tax for us.

If other people can do it, why can't I? All I have to do is enroll and eventually take the tax preparer exam. Many people are doing it and making a bit of money out of it as their sideline.
