What I've Been Up To Lately

February 15, 2015

Of all the anticipation of Valentines Day, I realized how quick the day just went by especially as we celebrated earlier than most couples do. Nothing fancy. We ate at Copeland’s of New Orleans, before Doug went to Greenwood for his Wrestling Tournament over the weekend. As for Valentines Day, it was such an ordinary day for Charles and I but I planned to take him out to eat for lunch. But knowing how restaurants could be busy on Valentines Day, I waited too long which did not sit well with Charles. 

Pancit

Beef Steak

So I opted not to go instead I cooked some dishes and baked cupcakes. I cooked pancit and beef steak for my dinner as it was on my mind over the weekend. And when I was about to make frosting for the cupcakes Charles, almost ate the small ones so I didn’t bother to frost any of them. As always Charles said; it tasted really good mama which makes me feel good inside when Charles really likes the food that I am making. 

Cupcakes
Cube Steak

So I took some photos to show you what I’ve been up to lately and cooking is one of them aside from shopping hehe. With wrestling season about to be over next week Doug, is gone most days of the week. Of course, it scares me at night when only Charles, and I, in the house though it gives me the reason to keep my self busy. Right now, there’s an app that I really liked, instacollage2, and never realized it was already midnight since I started learning how the apps worked and I loved it. 

Escabeche

Chicken with Veggies

Taking pictures is not my forte and now I have this app I should be taking more pictures than usual. As you know I hardly update my Facebook status  or post pictures aside from my blogs. Unlike many others they post everything even nonsense I guess. Hey! Its their page and they can do whatever they want. But sometimes you need to think whether you’re over sharing what you have or your just too narcissistic not to realize what you’re doing. Just saying.

String Swing

If you have a guitar and love it or them then you for sure want to store and care for your guitar the best you can. This is where string swing comes in as a premier guitar stand, wall mount and other various tools for protecting your baby. Get the best protection for a great price with a new string swing.

I Am Not Too Hard On Charles

February 04, 2015

Growing up, we never really got what we wanted like clothing, shoes, or toys. When we really want those things we had to work for it like doing household chores or go to the farm during harvest time. And most of all, you have to be good and do what my mother said. Being a mom, I am not too hard on Charles, when it comes to clothing, shoes, but not on toys as he has plenty of them already. When I go shopping its always for Charles. I don’t think I am spoiling him too much though I just wanted to get him the best things I can. 

And knowing how many pairs of shoes he already has for everyday use, I bought him a new pair today.  No more tying shoelaces, snap on, and his good. Seeing his untied shoes everyday is driving me crazy as he doesn’t know how to tie his shoe even though we taught him how to tie his shoelaces. Aside from that when Charles, says; he wants to eat at McDonald’s after school as much as I don’t want to we always end up at McDonald’s in the afternoon. Its just hard to resist “triple please”, or when he gets good colors of the day from school. 


Well, wrestling season is almost over and I know how tiring it is for everybody on the team. Some wrestlers are out which kind of sucks which also could hurt for the team at the  State Wrestling Tournament. The team has been working hard throughout the season and I know how much they want to have a great season.
