I Never Thought Could Be This Overwhelming

December 08, 2014

Having a child, I never thought could be this overwhelming. My son, Charles is only 6 years old but sometimes I have no answer to his questions. Just the other day, Charles and I were decorating our Christmas tree when he asked me this question. How could Santa get inside our house when we don’t have a chimney? So I replied, its magic. 

When my husband gets home I told him about Charles question then he replied, Santa has a key to every house. I smiled at myself as we told another lie to my son. He will learn soon as he gets older that Santa isn’t real after all. When we went to the mall weeks ago, I asked him if he wants to have a picture taken with Santa but he was not interested at all. 

I remember when we took him to the Children’s Museum, in Omaha, Nebraska. We thought that he would be delighted when he saw dinosaurs then he just said; those are fake. Charles is not the type of kid that we can fool around, just saying haha. Oh well, this week Charles is having cookies with Santa at his school and I am very apprehensive whether we should go or not. 

Doug is busy now since the wrestling season has begun. Speaking of wrestling, Charles and I have been to wrestling duals where Doug teaches at though Charles doesn’t seem interested in this sport. He’s rather more interested in getting nachos with cheese at the concession stand.

Great Wedding Dance

So you or a friend has a big wedding coming up? You of course have much on your mind and things to plan but make sure to not forget one thing that will always exist in your memory or on video. The great wedding dance is something that every bride and groom will remember as will the guests. Make sure you are at your best and get help performing with grace and confidence.


I Have Not Eaten Any Stuffing

November 24, 2014

With Thanksgiving, just days away, it’s all about turkey and stuffing on the shows I watched on the Food Network. Then I realized I have not eaten any stuffing since I came here in the U.S. When it comes to food I still like to cook dishes that we used to eat in the Philippines, here in the United States of America. This Thanksgiving Day, I would love to try different  foods and see if I am going to like them or not. It is also my 7 years anniversary since I came here from the Philippines. Of my 7 years here, I already have 1 kid, got my driver’s license recently, and hopefully another child (daughter) on the way haha. 


Filipino Dish, Afritada

As for a job I don’t have any. Though I thought about of getting a part time job closer to our house though I have not been feeling very well over the last few months now. I have been having headaches and my eyes are sore. Already have my eye appointment scheduled next month and I am very anxious about it. Charles had his eye examined just days ago and he was diagnosed with astigmatism on his left eye and myopia on his right eye. It’s just weird as he never complained about his eyes while growing up. So now, he is going to wear eye glasses when needed specially when at school.  

Anyway, we are going to visit my sister-in-law, for Thanksgiving, and hopefully do some shopping as well. We are also going to Columbia, Missouri, to watch a football game between the Arkansas Razorbacks, and the Missouri Tigers. We already got our tickets bought and we are going to pick them up at the stadium. With chilly temperature during game day, Charles needs to wear layered clothing and a bigger coat.

Lasagna for Dinner

October 14, 2014

The other day, I baked lasagna for dinner and it tasted really good. I got 2 thumbs up from Charles. Well, he always likes lasagna, who doesn’t? Aside from lasagna, spaghetti, pepperoni pizza, and chicken wings adobo, are all his favorite dishes. Though he still is a very  picky eater. He’s very particular on the foods that he likes. 


Like, he only likes fries from McDonald’s, chicken tenders from Popeyes, and burritos from Taco Bell. Being a mom, I would love for him to try other foods, fruits or vegetables and juices. He used to eat  more fruit then he does now though he still likes bananas and grapes.

Charles' 6th Birthday

September 26, 2014

I can not believe my son, Charles is already 6 years old. We celebrated his birthday last week and he really did have a good birthday celebration. His cake tasted really good! He got presents that he really wanted for his birthday like; a Foosball table, Nerf guns, Monopoly Empire, Hot Wheels Track, and Soccer ball. As always he got lots of birthday cards with money inside. Since it was his real birthday last Sunday, we took Charles to eat at Fritz’s at Crown Center, in Kansas City. 





We also took Charles to Legoland, which he absolutely loved though we did not have enough time to check the whole place as we have to drive back home on that day. It was not planned to stop by in Kansas City just for sight-seeing aside from going to the Asian store. Which Charles does not like going inside as soon as he smells it from outside of the store. How much more when I take him to the market when we visit to the Philippines? The smell is really bad and it could definitely make someone nauseous. 

Oh well, this week has gone by so quickly and so is this month with only a few days left before its over. That means Halloween is just around the corner. I have no idea what Charles is going to wear as his costume. Charles likes to dress up on Halloween and go for trick or treating and he never gets shy on knocking someone’s door like he did when he was real small.


Difficult To Keep Up With

September 14, 2014

Over the last few days I have not been feeling very well and I stayed in bed most of the time. I also lost my appetite. No food sounds good to eat right now even when I think of my favorite meals to eat or watch Diners Drive-Ins, and Dives. Usually, when I watch the show on Food Network channel it makes me hungry, but when I saw the show the other night it was just like, hmmm it doesn’t look appetizing to me at all. 

Not only did I lose my appetite for eating but I also don’t feel like playing my games on the phone, Bakery and Restaurant Story. Having 4 games on both phones is really difficult to keep up with especially when my eyes are hurting and have headaches at the same time. I have been thinking of deleting these games but I don’t want to loose what I have already started even though it is really not working for me. For me, letting go of something even if its just a game is difficult. 

So for now, I’ll keep on playing when I can and do not when I don’t feel like it. Anyway, we are going to visit my sister’s-in-law, for Charles’ birthday. Every time we visit them, I always prepare our luggage ahead of time but this time I have not started anything yet. Hopefully tomorrow I will feel much better so I won’t be too lazy to get things done this coming week.

Well Deserved Win for Kasey Kahne

September 02, 2014

Can you believe its September already? That means holidays are just around the corner. Yesterday, when we went to Walmart the store already has an aisle for Halloween candies, and Thanksgiving decorations. This month is also special for Charles as he is celebrating his 6th birthday. Today, he asked me if its his birthday already and I said no; nineteen days left before your birthday. I also told him that we are not going to decorate for his birthday and his ok with it as long as we are going to play golf, bowling and go-kart racing. 

Now, that its September, Christmas songs surely can soon be heard on the radio, or television commercials just like yesterday. It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, was on a commercial then Charles said; what’s that? Its not Christmas, I thought it was funny when he recognized the song. Well, only a few weeks left before the summer comes to an end. So far, the weather has not been really bad here in Northwest Arkansas, and I am so grateful for that. Unlike the other parts of the country who’s affected by severe weather, like flooding, drought, and tornadoes. 

Anyway, how was your weekend so far? I’m sure you really enjoyed your longest weekend of the summer. As for me, I had a great week especially on Sunday night watching NASCAR Sprint Cup in Atlanta. Never thought Kasey Kahne could end up winning as the race started and was  dominated by Kevin Harvick, who lead the most laps in the race. The last 3 laps were just like an eternity when then the cautions came out. Boy! It was really a great race, well deserved win to be in the chase for Kasey Kahne. 

It made me happy also 4 of Hendricks Motor Sports teams are in the chase. Most of all, Danica Patrick, had the best finish of her career, 6th place. I do believe now when things are meant for you no matter how things did not  turn out the way you wanted, in the end it still could be great for you and very fulfilling.

I Am Eligible To Apply for Naturalization

September 01, 2014

I can not believe its almost 7 years already since I came here to the U.S. It was football season and I have no idea what football was until I saw it on television. The first time I saw a football game on television I thought it was crazy. Why are they running around from each other and chasing the ball to get it into the end zone? To me it was cheesy and makes me dizzy trying to figured out what they’re doing on the field. Of course, Doug was a football coach during the time I came here in the U.S., so he explained to me everything though I still could not understand it. 

Every weekend we watched football games whether its college or NFL games and so far I am enjoying watching the games. The most exciting games was when we watched the games at the stadium in Columbia, Missouri, and Arrowhead Stadium, home of the Kansas City Chiefs. Well, this year hopefully we can watch another Mizzou football games in Columbia, or even here at school where Doug, teaches at. Its more entertaining and fun to watch the game at the stadium rather than television. The crowd goes wild when the home team scores a touchdown. 

Of course, the loud music playing is just like a party already and who doesn’t like seeing those cheerleaders dancing and the marching band during halftime? Anyway, I was organizing my magazines and noticed printouts about, A Guide to Naturalization. Since I already lived here for nearly 7 years (5 years minimum) as a Permanent Resident, I am eligible to apply for Naturalization if I want to become a U.S. Citizen. Changing my citizenship is also one of the biggest decision on my life. 


Doug, has always encouraged me to change my citizenship over the years but I was the one who’s ignoring it. I also worried about the test so I must prepare for this before I say lets do it and get it done. These questions are easy as long as I am prepared before the test. There are 10 questions out of 100 and I must answer 6 out of 10 questions. Filing and biometric services fee are $680.00 total. If I don’t pass the test it would be just a total waste of money. Its not like okey, come back again next month until you pass the test. 

Well, I do really have plenty of time to read and study all these questions before I apply for my Naturalization. For the meantime I will not worry about changing my citizenship when the right time comes, I’ll do it.

It is important that you find a good deal and a great place to find cushion foam online is just what the renovator like you can use to finish your projects.


ZealVouchers_NoFollow

August 13, 2014

So do you like shopping online? I love browsing the internet for hours looking for that perfect gift, well and perfect buy for myself as well. Why pay more when you could spend less for your favorite brands when you shop online? As an online shopper I always make sure to look for discount codes for the products that I would like to buy for myself and my family. Just recently, I have purchased some DVD’s from the Disney Store, as it was too good a deal not to use the promo codes online. Its just hard to say no when you have a son who is really into watching Disney movies just like I am. 

Whether you are looking for products and tools you may want for yourself, family members, or friends, discount codes can give you huge savings that can help you save real money. From apparel, electronic, toys, homes and gardens, they all have valuable voucher codes for your shopping spree. Nike brands, and  Marks and Spencer, cards are both great gifts that you can give in the upcoming holiday season. Yes you heard me right, holiday season. It is never too early to think about Christmas. 

We only have four months till Christmas and I love doing my shopping early. Of course, some are afraid of shopping online as they are worried about shipping cost. Well do not worry many sites offer free shipping on many orders and it is common to find shipping that is free. If you shop carefully you can find reputable sites that have great prices but also take returns if you do not like what you buy (or it does not fit). Shipping times have also become much quicker over time. Many sites have streamlined the process and you can get your purchase in a very short time period.

My Pinoy Products

July 09, 2014

Going to the Asian store, A’Chau Oriental Market, is one my favorite thing to do. Just today, I got excited when I saw some chips from the Philippines that they don’t have in the past so I bought some. I also got some mangoes which I always make mango smoothie. Charles does not like mango smoothie now but once its frozen he thinks it is mango ice cream. 








With Charles a picky eater I would love for him to try the foods that I really like to cook from the Asian store before saying no without trying it. This morning when I cooked omelettes for breakfast he asked me if I am cooking adobo which is one of his favorite dish to eat.

I'd Rather Watch NASCAR Racing

June 20, 2014

First day of summer starts tomorrow so what are your plans for the summer? For us, we are going to visit my sister’s-in-law for a few days and go to the zoo in Omaha, Nebraska. Tomorrow, my hubby is going to World’s of Fun with some of his wrestlers but not Charles and I. Going to World’s of Fun is not my cup of tea I’d rather watch NASCAR racing at the racetrack. Besides, when we asked Charles he doesn’t want to go to World’s of Fun, as he is more excited to sell his soccer tickets to his aunt Connie. 

Doug, would love for Charles and me to go with him as he really wants me to ride a big rollercoaster. I though do not want to ride a rollercoaster and Charles is still not quite tall enough to ride many rides yet anyway. While he is at the park I am thinking my sister-in-law Connie and me might go to the Legends Mall and do some shopping. It will be nice to see family and have a relaxing few days away. This is Doug’s longest break from work all year so we are all looking forward to the next couple of weeks.



House Cleaning Service

If you are a single guy, a married couple where both people work or just do not feel like cleaning then you may well want to look into a house cleaning service. It is great to have help cleaning a house and your stress level will go down for sure. Help with basic housekeeping chores is something that you owe yourself.  Whether it be laundry, vacuuming or simply dusting keeping your place spotless is something we all want.




Interested to Start Blogging Again

June 19, 2014

It has been a very long time since I posted my last blog for this site and finally I have to type a new one. Getting leads from one of the publishing site makes me feel interested to start blogging again. Who knows one day all the leads that I’m getting could turn into an opportunity. Over the last few days, I noticed I have been getting leads and the payout is quite impressive though I always cancelled those leads because all of my blogs are not updated regularly. Hopefully next month and the next few months to come I could update my blogs regularly to keep me busy. 

As you all know my son, Charles is going to school this August and we are all excited for him. With me being alone by myself here in the house I am thinking maybe I could look for a job, maybe a part-time cashier at Wal-mart hehe. Oh well, do you think this month has gone by so quickly? Seems like it and before I know it I will be at the DMV next month to take my driving test again or renew my permit when I fail the test. Since I took my driving test, I only drove our car few times because I have not been feeling very well and my hubby was busy with his work. 

Soon as he gets home from work and practice he’s always tired and I really don’t feel like driving specially when I saw a car wrecked at the mall. With my son, Charles going to school I am not really worried of me driving because classes starts early and my husband can take Charles before he goes to work then. On his first day of school me and my hubby can be with Charles and for sure it is a bittersweet seeing my son on his own yet excited how his day going to be like without me on his side.


Wedding DJ

I am sure everyone reading this has been to a weeding or a huge party. One of the things that many overlook but that can make or break a reception is having a good DJ at the event. Getting people up and having fun is something that will make that special event something everyone will always remember. If you are looking for a charleston sc dj, you need to look no farther then the joe bunn, do company. Head over to their website and read the 100’s of customer reviews.



I Couldn't Be More Happier

May 12, 2014

My son, Charles began watching NASCAR races when he was just 2 years old. Now he’s 5, NASCAR races are by far his favorite show to watch on television and playing games on the phone. Having a huge NACAR race fan in the house my husband always gets excited to get our race tickets. Over the weekend we drove down to Kansas City to watch the NASCAR race at Kansas Speedway. What a great day to watch the race and I couldn’t be more happier as one of my favorite drivers Jeff Gordon, won the race plus the fireworks display was very cool to look at. Charles was very thrilled when he saw the fireworks and sat back again. What a great night to end the race. 

Well, if you watched Saturday’s race on television it was totally packed. Parking wasn’t really bad as we found my husband’s brother-in-law’s car when the race was over. Boy! It was a very long walk and we’re stacked on the traffic on our way out. We arrived back at the house around midnight. We all enjoyed watching the race and so did my sister-in-law Connie, and her husband and I guess we are going to watch again on the next NACAR race. Since my feet are still sore from walking over the weekend I stayed in bed most of the time.

Thankfully I did our laundry last night when we got back home and maybe tomorrow we are going to get our grocery shopping for the week. Its been a lazy day for me though I baked brownies this afternoon to get Charles attention with the smell. He was very busy playing racing on the computer for hours so I had to lock the computer room.



Backyard Playsets

Having a 5 year old son, is the highlight of my life. Charles, is so full of energy and life, he loves to play all day and all night long. When not on his iPad he loves to be out doors. Having a good play set is great for working out his energy. If you are in Virginia, there are are many great playsets in woodbridge va. Other areas have their own designs but those found in Virginia are great.



Looking Forward to Much Nicer Weather

March 18, 2014

Only two days away before Spring begins and we are all looking forward to much nicer weather. Next week is my hubby's Spring break and we are going to go bowling and play mini-golf here in town. Charles is very excited when his dad said; we are going to Golf Mountain, and Fast Lane here in town and may be going to Flea Markets as well. While my hubby is on Spring break I would love to drive our car wherever we go but not on the Interstate for now.

I have not driven the car in the Interstate with the speed of 70 mph and I need to get used to it before I'm brave enough. Though the other day when we went to Walmart it was the first time I was not so nervous when I was behind the wheel. And my hubby thought that I really did a great job and so does Charles. With Charles going to school this August I really need to pass my skills test before my permit expires as I don't want to renew it again to get it over with.

Speaking of Charles, we just enrolled him at school close to where we live about 5 minutes drive away and I think I can drive down to his school by myself. During his enrollment Charles did really really good according to the counselor. Though Charles didn't remember his middle name which is Turin. When he was asked his number he replied; I don't know as he doesn't have his own phone number which makes sense. But he knows his dad's number and yahoo email address and now he's been trying to enter passwords on the phone.


I Had a Pretty Good Day

March 11, 2014

I had a pretty good day. Drove the car tonight on our way to Copeland’s of New Orleans for our dinner and my hubby thought I did a pretty good job. Since I took my skills test a couple of months ago, I only drove the car thrice over the weekend. The first one I was shaken really bad perhaps not driving most of the time makes me nervous but tonight was a good one. Well, we ate at Copeland’s of New Orleans tonight as my hubby still had his free birthday dessert from them. 

As always we had Chocolate Fudge and it tasted really good as usual. While Barnes & Noble is only a block away my hubby decided to stopped by at the store and bought a new book, Gardens of the Moon, by Steven Erikson. My hubby reads a lot and I am not but thankfully Charles likes to read. Then we went to Wal-Mart to get our grocery shopping for the week. The most interesting food we got was Zatarain’s Jambalaya Mix. 


Charles likes Jambalaya the last time my hubby eats the food so we want to have another try for Charles. Anyway, I have tons of clothes that needs to be folded and some recorded shows to watch on television that I missed earlier. So grateful I can record shows when I am not around.


NASCAR Ultimate Speedway Track Set

March 06, 2014

While wasting our time before our dinner the other night, we ended at Hometown Flea Market here in town. At the store we found a NASCAR Ultimate Speedway Track Set, for about $5. With Charles a huge NASCAR fan the track set was a huge deal despite missing one car. Putting the track together was a big problem and the connectors won’t snap together and breaks easily. 


So when my hubby told me he was planning to buy NASCAR Ultimate Speedway Track Set for Charles for Christmas I was delighted he got the cheaper one instead of a new one. The track set isn’t worth the money though it looks pretty cool. My son, Charles really had a great time when the track was put together but now it ended up in the box. And with NASCAR season just began I know how important it is to have your little race fans have their own track so they can do their own races. 

But buying this kind of track is not the one that you need to have. There are great tracks that you can buy and Hot Wheels tracks are great ones to look at. Well, it has been a couple of days now since my hubby ordered our NASCAR Sprint Cups tickets and it has not yet arrived in our mailbox. Hopefully within the next few days it will show up in the mail as I don’t want to think the money will end up with nothing. Watching NASCAR Sprint Cup races at the speedway is fun and exciting.

Bought Our NASCAR Sprint Cup Tickets

February 25, 2014

My son, Charles is a huge NASCAR fan and Sunday’s Daytona 500 race was a great one. He’s favorite driver Brad Keselowski, finished in the top 5 which made him very happy. His other favorite driver Kyle Larson, was involved in the huge wreck, but he was ok after that. Aside from Charles, Doug, and I are really into NASCAR racing now. The Daytona 500 was by far one of my favorite races so far. 

One of my favorite driver Dale Earnhardt JR., won the Daytona 500 which made me very excited! Aside from Dale Earnhardt JR., Jeff Gordon was also on the top 5 finishes. Well, if you haven’t seen any NASCAR racing in the past better check it out every weekends on Fox or Fox Sports1. Every race is very heart pounding, exciting, and awesome! I can’t wait to watch the NASCAR race at Kansas Speedway in May. 

My hubby already bought our NASCAR Sprint Cup tickets for the race and we are all looking forward to the race but not the long drive down to Kansas City, hehe. Charles always complains that his back is hurting so he can get out from the car and 4 hours drive is a very long trip for him. Seeing trucks on the Interstate keeps him busy for awhile though never forget to ask his favorite question, are we there yet?


Acoustic Bass at WWBW

So you want a Bass Guitar but do not want it electrified? Then an acoustic bass is just what you need. There are many great affordable acoustic bass at wwbw.  With well known brands like Dean, Ibanez, Takamine and Alvarez you cannot go wrong. There is also a nice range of prices on these fine guitars. It is easy to find just the right acoustic bass for you.



It Has Been Very Difficult Seeing My Son, Get Sick

February 24, 2014

It has been very difficult seeing my son, Charles get sick over the weekend. My hubby was not around as he was gone for State Wrestling Tournament, in Little Rock, so it was only Charles and me in the house. Of course I was so worried being ourselves alone and Charles being sick. Thankfully, Charles felt so much better now though the other day he had a fever in the morning. He also kept on complaining that his left ear hurt really bad. When I was about to tell my hubby that we need to go to the doctor, Charles said; his ear does not hurt anymore. 

So far Charles has been sleeping very well at night. But for some reason for 3 days in a row he always cried and talked while asleep. The first night when he began crying I asked him if he is going to throw up and he said; no. Then, he said; I didn’t win. I didn’t win. The second night, he cried and he wants his Legos so he can put them together, (Car Legos were put together with Charles and his dad before bedtime). So when I got his car legos beside him he said; I don’t like them, yuck. Throw them away. 

And the next day, guess what? He played with his legos. On the third day, he wants ice cream and was restless through the night so my hubby held Charles to calm him down. Well, can you believe this month is almost over? Yes it looks like it and before we know it spring is just around the corner. We made some plans for spring of going back to Branson but it looks like we are not going in there anymore. Instead we are going to Kansas City, to watch NASCAR race in May. Charles is more excited to watch his favorite NASCAR driver Brad Keselowski, though he also likes Kyle Larson as well.


Charles Naughty, The Indianapolis 500 Champion

January 24, 2014

When I see a mom with so many kids and pregnant at the same time I always say to myself; wow! How could she handle all those kids at the same time? I can only imagine their house is a huge mess unless they are rich and have household helpers to keep the house clean most of the time. Each kid has a babysitter and the husband must have a decent job to support his family. The healthcare insurance is very expensive nowadays plus food, clothing and education are on the rise. 

Being a mom myself, I have only one child and our house is totally chaotic when my son, Charles toys are everywhere. Just the other day, Charles got my Rome Honeysuckle Amore shower gel from the paper bag and spilled it all out in his bed room. I thought Charles sprayed my perfume when I realized the smell was different so I checked him out in his room and smelled shower gel all poured into the carpet. 

Of course, I was mad at him and to myself as I was busy cooking in the kitchen and I did not check on Charles. Charles is very good in doing naughty things lately. In fact his new name now  which he made up himself is; Charles Naughty, The Indianapolis 500 Champion. And everyday Doug, and I always remind him that we want Charles Indianapolis 500 Champion, and not the naughty one. 

I know he is so bored being at home 24/7 especially when we can not get out even to check the mailbox outside. The weather is just very cold for us to be outside even for just a few minutes. How about you how do you keep yourself warm in this frigid weather?

Bowling And Go Cart Racing

January 23, 2014

My son, Charles is a huge NASCAR race fan and he got very excited when he heard his father saying; the race schedule is out for the season. Of course, Charles wants to watch another race and this time he is more excited than last year which he had fallen asleep during the race. Since we all liked to watch NASCAR racing I would be glad to watch it again this year in Kansas City. The race will take place in May, and hopefully this time we can get to meet our favorite race car drivers on the field. 

Last year, I got a chance to see all the NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers before the race starts but I couldn’t see them clearly as we are sitting a little farther from the race track. Anyway, my hubby is planning to go out this Sunday to go bowling and go cart racing. I have 2 free bowling coupons and I don’t want them to go waste before the end of this month. When the weather isn’t too cold outside playing mini-golf would be perfect as well at Golf Mountain here in Rogers.

It Was Not Full Blown Shopping

January 20, 2014

Yesterday was a busy day for me as I shopped at Pinnacle Hills Promenade. It was not full blown shopping as I don’t have enough time and besides my boys are with me and Charles does not like waiting at all. Found some great stuff at Bath & Body Works and 75% off is a great deal. The store still had their semi-annual sale and when you are looking for body lotions and body sprays you better check them out. 

Since I am collecting products to send a package for my family back home in the Philippines getting these for less is even better. I have not sent any package to the Philippines since I came here to the United States. I am afraid the package will not arrive to the right person. Losing a package could be very devastating specially when my first attempt to send one will end up in Africa, just kidding! I think I will get a box soon though to send all the things I have been collecting.

Charles' Drawing

January 09, 2014

My son, Charles is only 5 years old but he knows what kind of car he’s going to get when he gets older, a Honda Van. So all of his aunts can ride all together in the van. But I’m sure when Charles gets older he’s going to change his mind of not getting the car which is a good thing for sure. Though it’s fascinating when he drew our car, a BMW, with the three of us in it. My hubby loves his drawing and so do I. We thought it was very thoughtful and cute to have us included in the drawing. 


My hubby is driving and me sitting in the front and Charles sitting at the back. And how I wish Charles would be more interested in writing but we’re getting in there. This year he is going to kindergarten and I’m sure he will do good in school. But as a mom, I have worries as well when it comes to bullying. 

Toddler Tuxedos

As a mom, nothing looks more dapper when a kid is wearing a toddler tuxedo.  Though Charles has only worn suits when dressing up I love seeing pictures of a young boy all dressed up. I guess it is just the whole cuteness of dressing in clothes you would not expect a young toddler in. Plus, tuxedos are so classy and what is better together then classy and cute.

Great Decor In Your Kitchen

January 03, 2014

While shopping around at Hobby Lobby I found these vinegar bottles very interesting to look at. The colors are vibrant which makes great d├ęcor in your kitchen. Since I like vinegar I am planning to buy one of these bottles filled with fruits and vegetables. The longer you keep the vinegar the better it taste especially when infused flavors like fruits and vegetables. 




But as you can see these are only for decorative purposes. And I amazed how they put the fruits and vegetables inside these sassy bottles.
