To bad Kaitlyn is not big enough to get on most rides, you have heard of star gazing right? Kaitlyn will be doing the people gazing this time around.

In Today's economy every one of us are trying our best to find ways to improve our daily living. Trying to stretch a buck is like performing a miracle nowadays. My BIL Angelo has been trying to set up a restaurant business since he is such a great cook. The only problem is where can he get the money to open his own restaurant. I must admit he does not have a perfect credit score but its not that bad either. He refuses to get a loan from the Bank saying that he would rather find something that doesn't require a lot of paper works and doesn't need a big collateral. I thought maybe he should check out Personal Loans and see what they can do to help him.He can even get a loan for up to $15,000. If your like my BIL and in a tight spot check out Personal Loan Mania and read some of the FAQ that most customers ask. They can help, all you have to do is to check it out and see what they can do for you.


The weather has been so wonderful that it was time to take out the Dora sprinkler from its hiding place in the shed. Friday we had to drop off Kayla to her mommy's since she has to spend 3 out of 4 weekends with her mom. Saturday we left Kaitlyn with MIMA so daddy and I could wash off the boat and put the for sale sign on it. We got done before 12 and was home by lunch time. After we had some hot dogs we decided to let Kaitlyn have some fun outside with the Dora Sprinkler. She had a blast and would try to get Dora but the water would stop her, lol. She is such a trip, to bad her sister was not with her this time. So without further delay, here is my little actress.......


Spring is really here. We all are enjoying a beautiful warm weather where you can just go out without a sweater or jacket. The kids are specially loving it, they get to play outside with bubbles, chalks, the swing set and most of all the ever popular sand box. Everyone is preparing for Summer's arrival and with that Ralph also has to make sure to get a good credit check to know our financial standing. Ralph has been trying and working on improving his credit score by paying off some of the debts that he had. Its tough doing that since some of his debt has increased due to interests. When I get my papers in the mail Ralph will be getting me my own credit card so I will know how to handle paying my credit card bills and build up good credit. For a person that is not very familiar with using and having a credit card its important that to know some of the terms and what it means and this is where CARD HUB can help. They have a glossary of terms complete with explanation of what it is. That's one service you cant find in a lot of credit score checker. This summer be prepared and check it out.

For weeks now, I have been contemplating about going home for a vacation. I don't think its going to be possible since things are getting bad and the economy is not looking to good. Just yesterday Ralph called to inform me that 20 cops will be laid off and a months leave without pay is going to be enforced on all cops. That got me really worried about Ralph's job and our finances. We are not rich, we just make ends meet. My decision not to go home is the right thing to do. My heart is aching to go home and see my family but my brain is telling me to wait and think first. I don't want to force the situation and put my families finances here in limbo. Its really really hard for me, Ralph feels so bad about this and worries that I wont love him anymore. Life is about tough choices and sacrifices. I know one day when the time is right we will be able to go back for a visit, but its not the right time. For now I'll just make do with talking and seeing my family through the eyes of the web cam, that is better than nothing.

As my mother turns a year older and wiser I cant help but worry about her health. She is not as healthy as I would like her to be, to top it off she has gained a lot of weight. Her hormones have been out of whack since she had to have a hysterectomy and one of her thyroid had to be removed. After all of those operation was when she started gaining a whole lot of weight and adding more complications to her Rheumatic Heart condition. It scares me to think that I may after all have that condition since its hereditary.

Now that I'm a mother I worry about my health since I have my two little girls to think of. I know there are also mother's like me who have to think about the future and that is where C'elle comes to our rescue. The company has come up with a way to harvest stem cells in a woman's menstrual blood. What we women dread about monthly could potentially save our lives and the lives of our loved ones. With the easy to use collection kit, harvesting that potential life saving stem cell is within our reach. For a limited time offer you can get C'elle for only $299 ($400 off on the regular price) when you use the promo code : CN400. Its time we take care of ourselves and have safety line for our future.


The day started off great with the twittering birds, warm sunshine and cool breeze. We were surprise how nice it was outside since it was suppose to rain the morning. Kaitlyn once again was out the whole afternoon. I had to put her down for her afternoon nap first. She slept for over 2 hours and was fully charged when we went outside in the front porch. We all went to the bus stop to pick up big sister and my was she happy to see all of us there. The kids kept playing in the front porch and also the backyard. We had pizza and cheese steak for dinner and ate on the back deck.

It was a different story after about 8:00 p.m. though, it started to rain cats and dogs. It was just pouring and then the thunderstorm started. I'm a grown woman but the thunder just scared me since you could feel the house vibrate. The sound and the flash of lightning was also scary. Thank God it didn't last that long of else I would never would have been able to drop on my daily visitors and readers. One thing with kids is that when they finally fall asleep they are deaf to anything, well almost, lol.


Its no secret that the economy has affected everybody around the world. People have lost cars,properties. The most sad thing about the economy is that some families has had there homes foreclosed on them, leaving some homeless. My BIL even hit a rough spot when his house was also foreclosed on him less than 2 years ago. Here is good news for people who are living in the State of Ohio with stop foreclosure ohio.There are ways to stop having your house foreclosed on you,check out the site for more information on how you can save your home. I hope they would come up with more talk about how to stop foreclosure in different States as this would be a big help to many families right about now. Take action now and lay claim to your home again.

Her pink little sandals. We got that at Walmart and every where we go people always say her shoes look so cute on her and ask where we got it. As you can see Kaitlyn doesn't have the nicest nails around,lol.. MIL and I always talk how ugly her toes are. Its just her nails are growing upwards and its just hard to trim and make it even. Still she has cute little toes and it amazes me how fast they grow, she is between size 4-5. She only gets a max of two shoes since she is still growing and it would be such a waste to buy her more and she wont be able to wear them a lot. This one she has almost worn out, she loves wearing this since she can run around in them, jump and climb.In another week or two she will probably outgrow this.

Being a parent is one of the most wonderful thing that happened to me. Conceiving, nurturing a tiny human being inside of me was an eye opening journey. Giving birth was special and one that I will never forget. Children are gifts from God, a gift worth protecting, nurturing and worth preserving. As a mother I worry about the health and well being of my girls. I always get scared about certain illness and diseases that my kids may get. Every little sniffle, cough, fever and parent/parents start to worry about the kids. Its in our nature to find a way to make sure that our kids get healthy and stay healthy. We all know that there are some common diseases that kids are usually prone to. One of them is leukemia and different forms of disorders. We are planning on having a new baby and it helps to be prepared for health issues that may come up in the future. To help safeguard the health and life of our kids, lets think about getting Cryo-Cell , it's harvesting the stem cells found in the umbilical cord of new born infant. Scientist have found that the umbilical cord contain stem cells that in likeness to bone marrow transplant. Banking our child's cord blood may save the life of a loved one, a sibling or parent. Here is a testimonial of a Cryo-Cell customer :

"My children are the most precious gifts that I will ever have and I want to do everything I can to make sure they are well. While I was pregnant with my first child, I would see articles and ads about cord blood and it bothered me that it was so expensive but what if I one day needed this blood. The reality of having only one chance or it really went in the garbage kept me wondering if I would regret not investing. What if he had cancer or his dad or I were sick, would that blood have been the cure? Through research, I came across Cryo-Cell International, Inc., a company with the most reasonable rates and the assurance of two holding facilities.

When I was pregnant with my second child, we wondered if one bank was enough? Finances were tighter and should we spend the money? Then we realized that his brothers blood might not match for the new baby. The next day, stories were breaking about how Cord blood had saved or changed the lives of children, one cancer, one cerebral palsy. Then we discovered that a friend was diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma. He didn't bank his daughters blood and wished he had. Three years prior, I lost a friend to renal cancer when she was 29. We felt like it was our answer.

We are just beginning to see miracles that this blood can bring. We have two "life insurance policies", that is how we look at it. If anyone in the family gets ill, there is a chance that the blood could save our lives. If we don't use it, then it is there for our son's children."

Cryo-Cell International Client

We need to invest on our kids health without breaking the bank. That is why Cryo-Cell International is offering a $200 off with code BB200 on new clients and a free baby bjorn. The special weekend offer expires this April 19 th, Sunday at midnight. Lets not take a chance, invest on our children's health.



Good Friday we took the kids and one of Kayla's friend Kelly with us to chuckee cheeses. This was Ralph way of thanking Kelly for giving Kayla the price that she won at Girl Scout. I know Good Friday is a time to pray and reflect on our mistakes, I have done that and every single day I thank God for saving us from our sin. Kids have no idea what's going on, Kayla knows that happens on Good Friday but she still doesn't understand everything. Anyhow, the kids had fun and they were very well behaved and no meltdowns. It was a different story though on our way home, they had gooey and melty ice cream all over there mouth,lol...


In this trying economic times some women have forgone taking care of themselves less and less. We all know that taking care of our skin specially our face to get rid of wrinkles can be expensive. How about getting a Free Wrinkle Cream at no extra expense or hidden charges? Its always great to get freebies, specially if its beauty products.

And then there was the Easter Bunny who hopped and hopped around the house. Dropping all those Easter Basket filled with toys and goodies. Well that's what we told Kayla how we got the Easter basket of goodies for her and her sister. Easter Day we had to drop her off at her mommy's since it was her year to have Kayla. We dropped her off at 9 am and Ralph picked her up at 6 p.m., we had a late dinner so we could eat as a whole family on Easter. We just had Ham, corn, mashed potatoes, spinach, and of course 3 kinds of dessert. They loved the Easter Basket that the Easter Bunny left them.

Hopefully the wet days are over and the sun will take over. The next few days will be warm, dry and sunny. Spring has sprung its wings ready to take off in the wind. Each day summer is getting closer and closer. Its time to start thinking about a great vacation that we could take our kids to. A vacation where we all can enjoy the same activities together. We have never been to Florida and I have only heard wonderful things about places to do and go in Kissimmee. Lots of fun outdoor activities, water parks, restaurants, festivals and events, shopping, theme parks, golf and many many more. How about if I tell you that your vacation could be free? Yes, you read it right, Kissimmee is giving away:
  • 3 weekend getaways for 2 people (3 days/2 nights)
  • 2 week long vacations for 4
All you have to do is enter the Kissimmee Sweepstakes and that vacation could be for your family. A vacation would be a great but when we could get it for free, that's just super!. Right now, I'll start planning what our itinerary would be. As parents we always make sure our kids have a blast so we will probably head on to an outdoor activity first that includes sightseeing and a day at the park. Going to a Theme Park where the oldest can have her choice of adrenaline pumping rides while the little one can settle for the simple rides. The water parks since both our girls love the water and of course something for Me and Ralph maybe a little luxury activity. Winning that week long vacation would be awesome. Don't forget that drawings will be held on or around 4/1/09, 5/1/09 and 6/1/09.. We still got a chance to win, enter now.....

I decide to trim Kayla's hair yesterday when she came home with a little bit of gum stuck to the tips of her hair. Her hair needed the trim anyways. So off we went to have a bath with her sister of course in tow. I washed Kayla first while Kaitlyn played in the tub with her. After I was done putting tons of conditioner and washing out her hair I let her stand outside the tub. I filled the tub up with a little bit of water so Kaitlyn will keep playing and not disturb us. While I was trimming her hair Kaitlyn would interrupt whining wanting the hair out of her fingers and I would of course get the hairs out. I kept trimming Kayla's hair when all of a sudden Kaitlyn kept saying eyew!! so many times and from the corner of my eye I could see she was handing me something. I turned my head to look and take whatever she was handing to me with disgust in her voice and face. To my shock she was holding her POOP!! I screamed and I was so frazzled I just cupped my hands and told her to drop her poop on my hands. I turned around and drop the POOP in the toilet. I then proceeded to drain the tub, watch both our hands and frantically smelled her mouth for fear that she might have put her poop in her mouth. Thank God I did not smell anything in her mouth. Kayla was laughing so hard and so was I after that incident. Kids are so funny, they make life interesting.

Whats your kids poop story? Care to share it?

One of the best thing that ever happened to me was giving birth to my daughter Kaitlyn. She and her sister Kayla has become the center of our lives. Its really true that when you become a mother, a parent you do anything and everything for the sake of your children. Children not only need love, care and attention they also need material things to nurture them mentally, brings out their individuality,personality and talent. Kaitlyn my youngest is turning 18 months in a few days and she is already showing her love and enjoyment of music. Every time she hears music she dances, she also tries to sing along with us. Even at the mass over this holy weeks she was dancing at church. Looking for music that is appropriate for kids of different ages is not easy. Its important that both girls will be able to enjoy and listen to the music. With 150 Fun Songs For Kids finding the right music and all the popular songs is easy. Songs you can download at a very low cost that is already formatted in MP3 and can be played on any Ipod or MP3 players.I'm definitely looking into getting the girls the whole digital album so they can dance and sing along to the music anytime.



After our successful egg hunt the fun did not end there. The kids did not want to go home yet so they decided to have a banging good time in our backyard. They spent more time in the sandbox than anywhere else. Ralph did good when he built that sandbox for the girls. Even the little ones stayed in the sandbox most of the time and only got out to get on the tire swing. They also loved playing catch and just running around. Kids have so much energy while we the adults were tired just looking at them. Our house is the place to be, the place where every body like to hang out. That is actually fine with me so I can keep a close eye on my girls.


One of the perks I love about being pregnant was the fact that I don't have to endure the dreaded monthly cycle. I dread that time of the month since it always bring company named back pain, cramps, bloating and headache. It's been over a year and a half since I gave birth to my baby and that means more than a year of dreading that time of the month. Since Ralph and I are planning on having another baby very soon I hope it happens, It got me thinking about C’elle how they are finding ways to cure some diseases and disorders. Menstrual blood has been found to contain adult stem cell that is to the likeness of bone marrow. It can be harvested safely, pain free and stored. The adult stem cells found in menstrual blood can help treat heart disease, diabetes, for anti-aging treatment and other diseases. If your also thinking of how your menstrual blood can help you one day check out the About Page for more information and benefits it can have for us . As a parent I would like to get this done, this is also for my protection and for my family. In this day and age everything seems to be possible and the cure to any disease could be at hand. Check out the Order Now Page and have that safety net for your life.

April 9, 2009 was a nice cool day. We decided to do the Easter Egg Hunt for our girls and there friends that day. As soon as Kayla got off the bus she was so excited and asked her friends to hurry to her house to do the egg hunt. We started the hunt shortly after 4 p.m and the girls had a blast. Even Kaitlyn the little one didn't get left behind. She got some eggs as well. Its a good thing we have such a big yard. It wasn't important who got the most eggs, they were sharing. All in all it was a perfect day with no melt downs from any of the kids.

I will not be doing my usual drops today April 10 in observance of the GOOD FRIDAY. I will be back on Black Saturday. Thank you

It was beautiful outside earlier, comfortable enough for me to have a walk with my husband and youngest girl. We decided to leave the house early to wait for Kayla at the bus stop. While Ralph and Kaitlyn waited on the bus stop I took the opportunity to do some walking and get a little bit of exercise going. I have totally let myself go and I loathe doing exercise. Besides doing routine exercise can be so monotonous and boring that you loose interest. Walking or be it running is one of the best and safest form of exercise for me. It helps with my cardio, tones my muscles and help burn calories without really even trying. Besides looking at this photo made me realize how big my derriere is and how out of shape I look. Today with the help of BeeWell Miles I have started my walk for a purpose, to help raise awareness to breast cancer. For every mile you walk or run they will donate $0.15 to Breast Cancer Network of Strength to support those who are in need. If I could run or walk 2 miles for 5 days a week until October I will roughly make around $36 to help support the cause. Knowing this is for a good cause I will also rope in my MIL so she could also get on with her exercise to build strength to her knees. I know it may not be much to some but every little thing goes a long way. Partnered with good eating habit I will be doing myself a ton of good and finally get on the road to being healthy.

A couple of months ago my grandmother's older sister and best friend passed away. She was my grandmother's constant visitor and they always stay in touch and tell stories. Lola Loling was the funky lola with so many funny stories. She used to laugh so much at my jokes and she loves collecting jokes as well. She had a notebook full of jokes and would right down anything that she that was funny. It was a devastating blow to my grandmother when her sister died, I to was devastated and sad. Death has a way of showing us how vulnerable and precious life is. With the death of a loved one we try to honor and remember the memories that they left behing by making sure they are taken cared of when they are laid to rest. What better way of honoring them by having a cast bronze plaques to mark there grave with a memory. Its never to late to start thinking about what grave marker you or your loved ones want. Its important that they have something that will last and stand by any weather. For more information on grave markers and plaques visit today.


LOLO (grandpa) 78 yrs old
LOLA (grandma) 76 yrs old

They have been married for 55 years now. They are the glue that keeps our family together. They may not be rich in material possession but they are full of love, advice and support. My grandpa is still very active thank God and his the most caring, smart, intelligent man I have ever met. He taught me a lot in school and in life. My grandma on the other hand is feisty, witty, smart as a whip, loving, and generous. She does not mince with words and will tell you upfront what she likes and doesn't like. I miss you so much la, your cooking, your advice and stories. Aside from my mother they are the ones who help brought us up and I'm so proud to be their grand daughter. I miss you both so much and I really appreciate all those thing that you did for us. I cant wait to see both of you again. I hope really soon.

Its back to our old routine again waking up early in the morning. Urgghh, its such a chore doing that but I have no choice. That's what I am, a mother. Bleary eyed I would sit in front of the computer after having taken care of them and nod off. I'm still blogging though and posting some interesting facts. Speaking of blogging I got some good news for the whole blogoshpere. For those looking into finding a great web hosting site but have no idea which ones to pick web site hosting is there to help you out. They have a collection of web hosting sites that has been voted by consumers. Had I known this before I would have chosen the number one web hosting site on there review.

This is just a glimpse of my daughter's many temper tantrums. This came about when I had to lock her in the deck with us since there where 2 dogs on the loose.Thank goodness for MIMA who distracted her from going into a full blown temper tantrum .


One of my interest is listening to music, watching music videos and downloading them when its free. My mother also listens to music a lot since it helps to relax her and helps her think. Like my mom I guess a lot of people would like to download and listen to music from different artists from rising star to the popular ones. Have you heard about Kerchoonz, Its a new social network where you can listen to music and download them for free. Its a new site with lots of different things to offer not like the others out there. They are the only site that helps and pays artist every time we listen and download there music.

A place where you can build your own play list and even embed any music video to your own site. Make and meet new friends that have the same interest with you and of course you can also share your other social network site by showing them off there. Another thing is the Kwidgets its like your mini profile where you can download a music, listen to music and even show off your blog. What are you waiting for, its free to join.

This coming June analog T.V will finally be laid to rest with the newest method of broadcasting, transitioning to digital television. Since were in a new age so to speak and in recession how about a chance to win a 22" flat screen HDTV everyday for the whole month of April? Or how about winning the grand prize of 52" LCD flat screen HDTV with a home theater system? That's not the whole kit and kaboodle yet, with the grand prize you also get a full year free of Charter Digital Cable Service and take not its HD (high definition) programming. Nowadays, its better getting cable programming where you have a varied choices of shows,channels and you also get to watch the latest movies right at your own home.

Where else can you find a 3 in one bundle, cable, high speed internet and phone service. Plus you can build your own bundle meaning pick and pay which service you want. And with the transition from analog to digital, Charter will have you covered. Enjoy watching the clearest shows, different programming, fast internet connection and of course crystal clear sound quality for your phone. What more can you ask for.

Its a very wet, gloomy day outside today. The rain is probably washing away all those winter remnants left on the ground and showering the seedling, sprouts and plants with love to help them grow. There are so many reason why I love spring. One, no more heavy winter outfits that takes ages and ages for my kids to get ready. Two, no more getting stuck inside the house for many weeks and with only kids as my company. That is enough to drive you up the wall right there. But what I really love about spring is the way everything is around. And of course we can start wearing shirts and shorts again. I cant wait to start wearing just a shirt around the house and outside the house specially when its time to pick up Kayla at the bus stop. Even Kayla has been asking when she will be able to wear short sleeved shirts to school and even dresses. Ralph has started wearing shirts now and he always wears his shirt that says "best daddy hands down" with a print of two hands, one of him and Kayla. That shirt is getting so old and tattered on the edges that I'm so tempted to throw it in the garbage. Before I can do that I'd better make sure I make him a replacement t-shirts that is one of a kind. And of course its going to be a picture of me and another picture of both of the girls. Did you know that with VistaPrint you can customize, personalize your shirts by uploading photos that are special to you. Easter is around the corner and giving a loved one a specialized shirt would be a great gift idea. As for me, I'm thinking about getting Ralph two shirts that has a picture of both girls and the other one of the whole family and maybe then I can put that tattered shirt that he always wears to peace. And the prices for a customized shirt is not bad at all with easy designs to choose from and with sizes ranging from S-XXL. Personalized is always better.


The other week Ralph bought himself a new toy, his smoker. He was so excited about it and was talking about what he was going to cook non-stop. I helped him assemble everything, It makes me happy that he has his own thing. He has always been a giver its time he gets what he wants. He is still experimenting and learning how to operate and cook with his smoker. It took more than half a day to cook a whole chicken, beef ribs, salmon,tuna,and pork ribs. It was a lot and I must admit it wasn't that good! I know he felt so bad that we didn't like what he made but we made the most out of it. The tuna and chicken turned out good though despite how it looked,lol.

here is a photo :

It may look disgusting and terribly burned on the outside but it was so juicy and tender on the inside. He already ordered his recipe books for the smokers online and I bet next time its going to be yummy..

Everything is starting to bloom, weather is getting nicer and warmer with each day. I'm just so excited about this spring and coming summer. We are going to have so much fun out and about under the sun. I miss the feel of the suns warming ray on my face and body. It makes me appreciate every season that we have more and more. Although I would rather skip the winter and fall if given a choice but those two magical season is what makes it worthwhile. And since spring is really jumping up and down every nook and cranny Sears is offering a big 70%-80% discount on most of their winter and fall apparels. You read it right 70%-80%, that's big big savings right there. Who doesn't love anything that is on clearance sale huh? In this economy we need all the saving we can get. I headed over to Sears and found one dress that really caught my eye.

A cute black and white infused dress with pleats in the middle. This particular design will flatter my figure and give it more shape. What most attracted me to this dress is not only the design but the huge money it saves me, from the original price of $88 marked down to $17.99 its screaming my name and saying "take me home and wear me". I have got to find the nearest Sears in my area and take advantage of this huge discount before sale ends this April 18th. Looking into buying a cute dress for yourself or an outfit for your entire brood? Sears is the place to go.

My little munchkins, taken last week when the weather was nice albeit a little bit chilly. Since spring came along I have been bugging Ralph to take out Kayla's barbie jeep so she and baby sister could cruise around our area and just have fun. It was so cute to see both girls in the jeep with big sister driving and Kaitlyn the baby in the passenger seat. Kayla loves her sister so much and Kaitlyn adores her big sister and follows her around. My girls are growing up and it breaks my heart. Time flies so fast. One minute they were so young and so dependent on you the next they are doing things on there own. One day my girls will stop wanting me but I know they will never stop needing me.
