Miss The Sunny Days Already!

Pictures above were taken few days ago when we had the beautiful weather two days in a row. It is so freaking cold right now, inside and out. Our heater is still out and still waiting for the return label from the company to come in the mail so we can send the heater to have it fix once again! 

Anyhow, I am just so glad that at least I let my youngest son played outside when we had that warm and beautiful weather the other day. He had a lot of fun and if it was up to him, he could have stayed out there all day. Looking at the pictures above is making me miss the sunny days already! I can't hardly wait for the spring to come!

Camp Chateaugay

I would really love to send my oldest son to a summer camp this summer. He has never been to a summer camp before. The only time he has been a camp trip was when we went to gold mining and camped out overnight. I am sure he doesn't remember anything about it because he was only less than a year old then. But now that he will be turning seven years old this year, I would really love for him to go to a summer camp. 

He is in a Cub Scout now, I am not sure if they will going to a summer camp for summer but I know they said something about camping. I don't think it is the same thing though. I would really love for him to go to Camp Chateaugay. Such a ideal place for young kids his age and even adults to camp. Kids from all over the country comes there to enjoy the fun-filled activities that no kids nor adult will never forget. This would be a perfect opportunity for my son to socialize and meet new friends from different side of the wold.

But this is just not up to me, got to talk to my husband about it and see if we even have the money to send him there. I really wish we could. I am sure it will be one of the most memorable summers he will ever have!

Over 14-Month Old Already

Time does fly indeed! Look at my youngest son over 14 months old already! The first two pictures were taken just today few hours apart and the last pic was taken yesterday. And of course they were taken via Instagram, can you tell? Hehe! I just love it and I am not ashame to say that I am addicted to it! I know I am not alone on that, I guarantee you!

I L♥ve Instagram!

Who doesn't love Instagram anyway? I am literally addicted to it now! I just love how you can edit your picture and give it a unique look! An example of it is below..

The picture was taken a few days ago using my dslr camera. I always prefer using my dslr camera for the fact that the quality is so much better than just using my Ipod. It's more work to do it but I like the result much better. Well although the instagram pic is not really high resolution picture, I still like it anyway. 

I am still trying to learn how to manually edit a picture using photoshop but I haven't been doing it for a while now. I need a lot of practice! But anyway, I am enjoying the instant effect Instagram has to offer, I'll be using it as long as it won't cost me any penny! ;)

No School Due To Slippery Roads

My first grader has no school today. It was canceled this morning just before we got up to get ready. The school called, it was the automatic phone call and said that there won't be no school today. There is no snow outside yet but the roads are really slippery due to black ice and I heard on the news that there are so many wrecks already happening! 

I am just glad that the school recognizes this kind of danger. I totally agree that if the road is not a safe place for anybody to drive that it should be avoided. Better be safe than sorry!

Beauty Stuff From VS For Less Than $20

I bought these stuff at Victoria's Secret last night and only paid a little over $17 for all of it. The Beauty Rush Lip gloss originally sells for $7 each but was on sale for $2.99, the eyeshadow kit is originally $15 each, on sale price was $8.99 each, I bought two, total for the two is $17.98 and lastly the Mist is originally $14 but was on sale for $4.99. Victoria's Secret was still having their semi-annual sale that's why the sales prices on those stuff are really cheap.

I would have not pay any attention to it except that I received a $10 reward card from them last week and still didn't have plan on using it until I checked their site last night and they were having a free shipping with a purchase of $25 or more. So I combined the semi-annual sales plus the free shipping with a purchase of $25 or more plus my $10 reward card and the result? I got all of that stuff for less than 20 bucks! Now that's what I call a good deal! ;)

coverings but as well as handcrafted one-of-a-kind ones that you won't be able to find somewhere else. This site also offers glasscloth and specialty wall coverings. So many to choose from that you will surely find the perfect wall coverings that will suit your taste and personality.

If I was shopping for new wall coverings, I am definitely getting it from this site. There are just so many beautiful ones that I would love to put on our walls. But who knows one day, so I am gonna save this site in case I will be looking for wall coverings in the future or perhaps if one of my friends will be looking, I will highly recommend this site...

Booties For Less Than Five Bucks!

Isn't it a bargain? I got these cute booties on one of my favorite stores online! It was on sale for a little over $9 but since they had a promotion of 50% off selected sale items, I only paid less than $5 for it. I didn't need anymore shoes but this kind of a deal is hard for me to resist. So took advantage of it and bought it anyway. I have to options to choose from, either keep for myself  or try to resell it online.

But I got to think about it thoroughly. These booties are really cute in person and I don't have the wedge style yet. It is really hard to decide to keep it because I do not have anymore room in my closet. I really got to find or make a place dedicated for my shoes and handbags. This is the time that I wish that we have a bigger house than we have now! SIGH!

New Homes Jensen Beach

A few days ago, on one of the groups that I am a member to, one member posted a message asking for suggestions and opinions to the other members about the place to live in America where the weather is almost as warm as in the Philippines and the living expenses are not too expensive. There are a lot of members who gave their suggestions and opinions. The most state that they recommended was Florida. They said that it is just like the weather in the Philippines. In winter time, you can still pretty much wear shorts if you want to, they said.

As far as the living expenses, everybody pretty much agreed that it all depends on the lifestyle you are accustom to which I can very well agree! Anyway, the next time I visit the group, I will make sure to tell her about New Homes Jensen Beach. So many beautiful single-family homes located in a gated community in Martin County. With so many surrounding attractions and amenities like beaches, shopping, dining and cultural venues, anybody would surely enjoy living here!

Christian Gifts For Her

My stepdaughter will be turning 17 years old next week. She will be celebrating her birthday down in Florida as usual and she wants us to come but unfortunately we just can't do it due to the fact that we do not have the money to fly down there.

Anyhow, although we already sent her birthday gifts in the mail just this morning, I am still trying to find her something else. She's been having troubles lately and maybe an inspiring gift would be a wonderful addition. I am looking at Christian gifts for her online. This site really has some very nice gifts that a teenager like my stepdaughter would love.

Thankful For The Blessings

For weeks and weeks, I have been complaining about not receiving any tasks and yesterday I finally received several and one just a few minutes ago. So thankful for every little blessings that the LORD GOD showers my way! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you LORD!

More Temptation In The Mail

I just went to the mailbox a few minutes ago to check our mail. First thing that caught my eyes was this Victoria's secret coupon. I knew it some kind of coupon and when I opened it was indeed a $10 reward card. I guess I've spent $250 already on their store since you only get it when you spend that much. Hmmm, I really don't know what to think of it. I don't think I will use it because it will only mean that I will have buy something from their store in order to use it. I might just give it away for I really don't need to spend anymore penny and GOD knows how much I already spent this past few weeks!

Snow Is All Melted

I thought for sure we will have a very think snow within an hour when it started pouring out this afternoon. I mean it was pouring so fast and the flakes were so big but it stopped and what we had accumulated on the ground is now all melted. Thank goodness for I wasn't looking forward of having 3 to 6 inches of snow outside and be stuck inside the house. But I better not expect too much, it might snow again tonight which I am hoping it won't!

Keratin Control Treatments

I finally decided to have a haircut the other day. Me and my mother-in-law went to the salon to have my hair cut really short and highlighted. I have been having so much trouble with my hair that I thought it was for the best to have it really short. 

For some reason, my hair has been really hard for me to deal with before I decided to cut it. And every time I get in the shower, there are so many hairs that come off! I mean I know that it is normal for some hairs to come off but there is just too much in my opinion. I really thought that my hair is damaged really bad that I was even thinking of doing keratin control treatments

I think I still need to do it because even though my hair is mostly cut, it is still very dry and breaks very easy. I really want to have a healthy hair and shiny looking, but with my hair being naturally curly, it might be impossible to make it look like the way I want it.

New Addition For Winter

So there goes one of my New Year's resolutions down the toilet. Somebody really needs to punch me on the face for I am unstoppable. I really hate myself sometimes for doing it but I just really can't help it especially when I see that it is a good deal. So these boots and animal-print jacket that you see in the pictures above I bought two weeks ago. They were on sale for less than $10 each on one of my favorites stores online. That's why it was so hard for me to just ignore it and look the other way. 

Anyhow, what's bad about it is, I don't regret buying those, but I did feel bad that I spent my money when I am suppose to save it so I can pay my debts! I just keep breaking my promise not to spend another penny. There are just too many good deals online and no matter how many times I put it in my head not to check, I just couldn't do it! But anyway, I will try to put an effort not to spend anymore penny after all my orders arrive in the mail!

Car Parts Online

Thanks to the internet for making life so much easier. I mean I know that there are disadvantages too, but the internet is actually very useful! It enables you to buy some things that you are unable to get at the store like perhaps car parts that are out of stock. With the use of the internet, you can just find a store online by typing just typing some keywords like car parts in los angeles and it will give results of different stores online.

I Collect Angel Figurines

I used to collect angel figurines and picture above is one of those angels that I have acquired in the past years. It is actually given to me by my mother-in-law not too long ago. If she sees angel figurine somewhere and thinks that I might like it, she always buys it for me. I feel so lucky and truly grateful that I have a very kind, loving and generous mother-in-law. Although sometimes, we don't always agree on some things but we truly love and care for each other.

Not everybody is as lucky as me when it comes to their in-laws. I have known a lot of people that has a cat and dog relationship with their in-laws and I am just glad that I am not one of them! But anyway, this angel garden figurine is just one of those angels that she gave me over the past years. And I truly appreciate every little and big things she does for me and my family!

I Love My New Angel

One of the presents that my mother-in-law gave me for Christmas is this lighted angel pictured above. I just love how it lights up, as you can see it changes colors too. I like to turn it on at night especially when the lights are all off because it is the only thing that you will see when it's dark. 

This is a perfect reminder that when we are in our darkest days, GOD sent out our guardian angels to be there at our sides, to protect us and guide us the to the right path..

Bought New Cases For My IPod!

I can't wait for my new Ipod cases to arrive in the mail next week or so! I just bought two on ebay. I thought I needed a new one because the one that I am using right now is not really a hard case and sometimes my little one gets a hold of it and throws it or use it for a hammer. If it breaks, I won't be able to afford a new one. So it's for the best that I bought the hard case.

I didn't really need two but there was just many pretty ones to choose from and these two shown above are the ones that really caught my attention. I just love animal prints and I love butterflies too! The best thing about this purchase is, I only paid 75 cents for the two cases including shipping! That made it even better!

Finding a New Dentist for Your Family

Guest post written by Alexandra B

If you are considering having your teeth cleaned or if you are experiencing pain in the mouth, finding a dentist that is right for you is recommended to avoid potential infections, bacteria and further problems involving your teeth, tongue and gums. When you want to find a new dentist for yourself and your entire household, doing so is possible with the use of the online community Castle Dental.

Visiting a dentist is recommended at least twice a year for regular checkups and cleanings to help with preventing cavities and potential diseases ranging from gum disease to advanced heart diseases and oral cancers. Finding the right dentist can help you to get the appointment you need in a timely manner while providing the services requested for you and your entire family.

Why Compare Dentists Online?

There are many advantages to searching for a new dentist for your family online, including the ability to save time while you have more options than when using traditional local listings regardless of the city or state you reside in. When you are comparing dentists online, you can do so based on whether you are seeking generic dental services, cosmetic treatments such as veneers, or even specialty dental services if you are looking for gum disease treatment or root canal surgery.

Searching for a dentist online with Castle Dental is a way to quickly locate specific contact information and directions to various dental offices that are appealing to you, accept your insurance and provide the type of services you have in mind.
