Finally, we are ready for our 3 days trip back to Texas. We will be leaving after lunch and hopefully will get to the hotel on time and safely. I am so tired that I couldn't even sleep; that is why am still awake at 3:48am. Anyway, I just want to say to you All, guys that I will off blogging for I don't know how long. But as soon we are settled in to our new place (apartment), I will start visiting you all! So, bye for now....be back as soon as I can. Take care you all and have a great week everyone! Ops, and thanks for always visiting my blogs, I sure appreciate it a lot!

Grammatical Error...please!?

I don't know about you guys, but sometimes SS makes me think, what are they thinking when they say "grammatical error?" I have corrected my post two times already with my husband's help, but still they think and say that I still need to correct it because the error was still there. Darn, finally they decided that I cannot re-submit it anymore! Bummer! Did this thing happen to anyone of you, guys? I wonder if I am the only one victimized by this "grammatical error" thing. Well, I decided to removed it out of my blog.

Book, Bear and Compass...

Here are the souvenirs Jake got from our trip to Outher banks, North Carolina. He loves them all especially the Smokey Bear Park Ranger. He wouldn't sleep at night without it!

The compass on the other hand reminds him of his favorite Disney animated movie, Pocahontas. He likes the character, John Smith on that movie. He can watch the movie over and over again and will never get tired of it!

Are You a Dreamer or a Doer?



You Are a Doer


You are primarily concerned with what is actual. You tend to be a practical person.

You love to stay busy, and you are always immersed in projects.

You are in touch with your senses, and you enjoy indulging them. You're likely a crafter of some sort.

You crave different sensations in life, whether it's working with your hands, playing sports, or eating your favorite meal.

A Great Place for Ladies

There is nothing more exciting to me than shopping. Anywhere I or we go, I can't help but shop. My husband is very generous enough to let me do the things I love especially shopping. He know it is my weakness, that's why. Right now, even though we are on vacation, I still shop for souvenirs such as clothes, tote, and more. Anyway, right now I am online and looking for a dress I can wear at church in one of our Sunday meetings. Sunday is an special occasion for me and my family, that is why we make sure that the clothes we wear will not only be pleasing to others eyes, but most of all, in God's eye. I want something modern but simple and modest. I am glad to stumbled on the website called: amiclubwear.com, You wouldn't believe how huge their selections are of clothing both sexy, elegant, and casual. They also offer wide selections summer dress which I am sure you will like. I really like the Rust Turtle Cowl Neck Knit Sweater Dress, perfect to wear in a cool place like the church because the air conditioner is set on low temperature. They even sell shoes, men 's wear, swimsuits, accessories, cosmetics, and even clothes from your favorite celebrity like, Kat Hudson, Micha Barton, Hillary Duff and more. So what are you waiting for? Check their website now and purchase the items of your choice!

Our Family Getaway for the Year 2009

These are some of the pictures taken during our trip to Virginia Beach for our supposed to be a summer getaway for this year. But we decided to do it this Spring because the weather is nicer compared to summer. Not to mention that we have save some because of the deal we got from Expedia and also because the beach is not that busy yet. We did have so much fun!

After our swimming at the beach, we went inside and swam in the inside swimming pool to warm us up. More pictures are coming later.

Organization Everywhere

Here are few quick tips for reusing useful containers to organize:

Trays:
They’re not just for serving! Collect and contain items all over your home with trays of all shapes and sizes. Organize loose items on a coffee table such as remotes, magazines or catalogs and keep small items like keys and change together in an entryway or on a bedside table. You can even use a large four-sided tray for collecting wet shoes or rain boots by the door or in a mudroom.


Jars, Mugs and Glasses:
Use these small containers as quick fixes for holding small items on your desk like pens, pencils, thumbtacks, rubber bands and paperclips. Or put them to use in the bathroom to hold cotton swabs, cotton balls, tweezers, make up brushes or toothbrushes.


Shoeboxes:
They’re the perfect size for storing all kinds of items, from accessories and stationery, to photos and craft supplies. Stop and think before you pitch them and make them look as good as they work by covering the box and lid with wrapping paper or wallpaper to match your d├ęcor. Add labels to identify what’s inside.


Suitcases:
If you don’t travel on a regular basis, don’t let all that empty space inside your suitcases go to waste! They’re perfect for storing out-of-season clothes, shoes and accessories and can often fit easily at the bottom of a closet or under the bed. If you have some nice, old leather cases you can use them as storage out in the open at the end of the bed or as a side table. They could even become a stylish way to store a collection of books or magazines.


Office Extras:
Make organizing your recyclables easier by repurposing stackable trays often found in home offices.

Before you run out to the store to pick up boxes, bins or containers, look around your own home for ideas—you just may find the organization solution you need.

We have saved for Dinner Today!

We went at Pizza Hut today for dinner and saved at least $7.50 by redeeming Jake's coupon he got from school. They have this program on reading and he was awarded by doing well on reading. We got two personal pizza pan, and just added salad, soft drinks, and chicken wings for an appetizers. It was a nice dinner, I think. Then we went to Bass Pro shop to get stuffed toy for Jacob to bring on a field trip tomorrow at the Children's Hospital. Once again, I volunteer to help chaperon the kids. The filed trip will end at 12 noon, in time for out trip to Virginia Beach tomorrow afternoon which I am so excited about!

Mommy Moments - Doctor, Doctor, Am I Sick?

mommy moments

The theme for this week's Mommy Moment is "Doctor, Am I Sick? I don't have any pictures of Jake's visit at his doctor's clinic, so I decided to just attached a couple of pictures taken when he was born and was staying at NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit), Medical City Hospital - Dallas, Texas for a month. He was a preemie baby...7 months to be exacted when he was born. As you can see, he was so tiny and was at the incubator that time.

...in here, he already gained a little weight; he didn't have any health problem whatsoever when he was born. He just need to gain weight....that's all!
My OB-GYNE, Dr. Elmquist, who is a very good doctor. She specializes on patients with very risky pregnancy like I do. With her was Mary, the nurse whom I also love because of being so nice and kind and caring to me and everybody :-)!
