Yes it's not final yet. My dear FIL have time shares everywhere and he offered one to us for April. It is most likely to be in Myrtle Beach. I see it now lunch seafood, dinner seafood, I will be in Not to mention warmer weather. Anyone here from that area. I would like to know where is the best seafood to go. I am more likely to buy them and cook them myself. With the family of seven eating out is not a very good idea.

Also to my fellow Filipina, can anyone of you point me to the right direction for Asian store around the area. Planning on stocking up again since I'll be around that area. Let me know my friends.

Wearing a Gown


DD has been wearing a gown the whole week. First she found her angel costume and wore it around the house. Second she asked for the pink gown I made her 5 years ago and wore that while I wash the angel gown (made by me also). She even put a knee high socks and princess sandal. The clothes are short on her and I don't think I will let her wear them outside the house.

I will post the picture of her in a little bit. As soon as I can get a good hidden shot.

Family Hiked the Appalachian Trail

Here are my whole family hiking part Appalachian mountain from where we live. As you all know this mountain runs from Maine to Georgia.

My YDS following everyone on the trail. This one was taken at the very top of the mountain. He only asked to be carry a few times. Look at his tiny backpack, sooo cute.

My ears hurt climbing up. I think I inhale the air too fast. I am such a woosh, I grew up climbing mountains once a day. The big boy is my oldest, he is 17 years old. I am out of shape and I never done it since I moved out of my parents house after graduating high school. I think a few more hike and I will be in top shape.

Here is DH and the children. I/we (DH & I) am so proud of our little ones. We thought that our 8 years old will not make it up however, he surprise us all. They did it better than me (embarrassing I know) DH is making fun of me too. That is what happens when I move to a spoiled country and driving a car going to the corner just to buy a gallon of milk. The black thing on the left bottom corner of the photo is my backpack.

They Grow Like Weeds

I am talking about my four little children. I love shopping for clothes when ever there are sale like at Old Navy or Children Place. I save a bunch two ago shopping at Children Place. You can buy their shoes cheaper than you can get it at walmart. And it goes with clothes, I remember getting summer clothing for only $2.50 at those places I mentioned.

It makes me wonder how much it cost with the sale these days. Saving money these days become a big part in my household, that is why I am entering in every contest I can find online. Including Regina's "Eleven Collection dot com" contest, I love, love those shoes. Hoping to win a pair for one of my kids.


First Day Of Spring

Yeey finally SPRING! Our yard is still pretty wet. I'm not sure when we can start our bigger vegetables garden. I'm hoping we can do it soon.
BTW, this is our Holiday cactus. I took the picture last month, they are supposed to flower around thanksgiving however, we still have flowers until today. I should re-name this spring cactus.

We are planning about going for a hike today. Getting some reality training for our children started. It will not be pretty, but they have to be ready for what is coming. It's making me sad just thinking about it, but need the training. Ok enough of this, time to put my happy face on.

Happy Spring!!!

Emerge Labs

We all know how natural and organic products are good for our body. That is why Emerge Labs Organic Skin Care made skin care made of from these ingredients. They use the latest in plant extracts, bio-peptide and plants cells technology and common sense "be good to yourself" approach by blending the best of both science and beauty. If you want to look young using cosmetics these are for you. In my opinion you should start from the inside out. If you eat healthy from the beginning you will not worry about how you look when you get older. With the combination of healthy diet and organic anti-aging products you can achieve a youthful looking skin.


Sleeping Pattern

Ever since we spring forward I find myself sleeping until 8 in the morning. I was usually awake by 6:30 and i can't seems to get back in track. I hate waking up late in the morning because my daytime will cut shorter too. One of these day, I have to go to bed as early as 8 pm and wake up at 6:30. But when, light saving time indeed.


Outdoor Gaming

Everyday it's getting nicer outside. And like I mention below my children can't wait for it. My husband and I needed to purchase some tippmann accessories for some of them because they are growing like weeds. We don't have to worry about the youngest one since he will be getting what the older one can't use. Check out Tippmann brand too.


Can't Wait

Here are my 3 little ones. As long as the sun is out they are outside even if it's cold. My 4 year old (the one not wearing a jacket) does not mind the cold. I think they are getting tired of playing inside the house. They are bugging us about the pool now too. I think I have to clean it up this weekend to get it ready.

Cruisers Community

Over the weekend my husband is hinting again that he wanted to by a motorcycle. He was browsing all over from the free, used, and new sites. He wanted to have the one that can only be driven in Europe. I saw it a few times however, there is no way he can have it here. He can buy it if we move to Europe or if we move to other European territories. He may as well join the motorcycle community, because this is the closest he will come having a motorcycle, the pretend He can socialize with other cruisers/bikers and talk about customizing, share stories and videos, join the riders clubs, and buy bike accessories. Check it out for yourself.


Bandwith Exceeded

Sound familiar from my other post. This one is for my blogs layout from Miss Carlota. I think she got too much images on her photobucket account. Anyway, that will never happen again because I download all the images and host them myself.

I woke up and checked the comments, and when I went to my blogs all I can see was the blue messages from the photobucket. I apologize my visitors.

Innovative Employment Solutions

Are you still looking for a job? Look no further and check out LIGHTSHIP RESEARCH. They believe looking into hidden job market is very important these days. Hidden jobs are more difficult to find however, less applicants would apply and you will get more chance in getting the job. It was proven to work, just read the testimonial below.

I was the GM of a division of an industrial Fortune 500 company, and although I had a good job, I wanted to take advantage of the tremendous growth in China. I asked Lightship Research if they could find American companies with manufacturing operations in China and then, of course, line me up with the hiring authority in the US. I wanted to make sure it was an American company so I could repatriate in the future. They did two searches for me: one to find all of the industrial companies where I could generate leverage in China and the second to find out which ones were owned by American companies. It took 8 weeks and I accepted an offer to be a Division President for a capital equipment manufacturer just outside of Beijing. My team was very knowledgeable and very professional. I recommend them to anyone making an executive job change.

Raining Opps

Yup, I have 8 in my dashboard right now raging from $.50 to $4.00. I rather play outside with my DC in a 48° F weather than writing about them. It's not worth my time and the requirements they are asking is too much in my opinion. Oh and have you notice something with EC today? It's running slower than usual. I already clean the cache and history of my web browser and even ask my ODS if he is downloading something but still slow. I guess I have to do the dropping early tonight.

Have a great weekend my friends.

Are you Affected?

Are you affected by downsizing companies these days? We know that most American are affected, I used most because there are still other companies out there that can flourish. And Cydcor is one of those companies. They are still in business and are still hiring and have individual offices in 36 states and Canadian provinces. Don't take my word for it, check it out yourself.

No School

My two DC don't have school today and tomorrow. Last week DS saw in her sister schedule that she is off and asked me about it. I played that I don't know. Anyway, I wanted them to catch up a bit so, I removed the days off on their schedule. Now we are 2 days closer on finishing their classes when summer comes. I know it's not much, but they will add up in the in of school year. Sshhh, don't tell them.

Tackle Saturday

Here is what my DD and DS bedroom looks like since Christmas. I just did it last weekend. It stays clean until now, but I don't for how long. I couldn't even walk there when I started. You can see the bag filled with stuffed animals and garbage, eg papers and broken toys.

Before photo, DD & DS bedroom

Before photo 2, looks like a tornado hit this (DD & DS bedroom).

DD and DS bedroom after

DD and DS bedroom 2 after

This one is my 4th and 5th DS bedroom. The big box spring and mattress is ours. This is the before photo.

4th and 5th DS bedroom after. The twin box spring had to stay because we don't have any other room to put it.

I wish my house is always this clean. I miss those days so much.

I Won Something!

Yeey, I finally did it!

For the first time I won something in blogosphere. I won something from the internet before but not from blogging. Thank you, and the gift is sponsored by The Fountain of Happiness. Image below.

I got this on Saturday. Did not have time to post it then because I cleaned my young DC bedrooms. The picture of the before and after will be posted tomorrow.

February Top EC Droppers

I apologize for posting this sooo late.


Saturday, March 7, 2009

Nasty Comment

I woke up this morning and checked the comments to be approved in my blogs and greeted me with such nasty comment. Word for word it says, "Wow! You're one ugly bitch!!!" And common this idiot did not have a balls because it was posted anonymously. I did not approved it to see which post it was written at. Wow, I may be b*tch (all ladies are b*tch don't get me wrong) but to call me ugly. I bet I am much better looking than your a**. Plus DH already establish the B on me.

I always comment on post about how our government will never do harm. It would be nice to leave me a comment an answer to what I wrote. Calling names is not the way to clear things up. All I am trying to do is trying to wake people who are asleep and thinks that the government should take care of its people ( to some extend, killings). If you don't want to know the truth I will suggest to start digging and hide in your hole forever. That is so wrong, blaming the other political party for what they did or vote for, if our politician know what is wrong and right and doing what is right according to God and laws we will not get in this mess. Following the constitution is the way to go. Don't tell me that it's not updated that it should be up to date. People fought and died for it, the least we can do is protect it.

And to others if you have problem with me say it, name calling will not resolve what ever problem you have with me.


Tuesday, March 3, 2009


My planned for the whole weekend went down the drain. I have not done anything downstairs, well I wanted to paint but DH said he needs to filled in the holes first before I can. And guess what, he is not finished doing it yet. He could have told me that he wanted to fill the hole and dents before I can paint. However, when I told him I'm ready to paint he told me that he wanted to it first. I could have done it myself and knowing him he wants it done perfectly ( and take forever). He is looking at it for the long term and I am looking at it as easy as possible to have a bedroom for ourselves.

We already set up 4 cubicles for the kids and everything is a mess. Our bed is located in our youngest son bedroom. Half of the classroom (our old bedroom) is a mess. It's too overwhelming, I feel like I'm getting a flu and so stressed out. I hate moving everything, specially when DH seems like taking his time finishing the downstairs.

Sorry folks, too much to do and too little time. I may not write something for a while. I will try to put up the top EC dropper soon, when I have some extra time and enough rest. I wish I can just go on vacation without any worries. Just pack and drive and maybe, bring DH along. Too much responsibility takes too much of me.
