The Designers Chic

My appointment with the Chiropractor was extra fun today. I dressed Kaitlyn in her old costume last year which was little piglet. Hubby and Kaitlyn went with me but hubby stayed in the car since it was only going to take about 30 min max. I just had to take Kaitlyn inside with me. For the past appointments I knew that all the staff were dressing up as super heroes on Oct. 30, 2009. Before we even got inside the office we already saw bat girl getting into her bat mobile. I should have brought my camera and took pictures of the staff as well as Kaitlyn.The staff wore different costumes ranging from Zorro, Super mom, Cat woman, Soldier, Super mom, Vampire, Robin and a Phillies Pitcher. Thank goodness my daughter cooperated and was very good inside the office and just played in the kids corner. She would come up to where I would be from time to time. The staff are all so nice and accommodating. After my session we got to taste some of the Halloween spread for all the patients. What a way to fill an empty stomach in the morning,lol. All in all it was as much fun for Kaitlyn as well as for me just to watch her little face lit up.


Have you ever felt so old and ancient? I do, I get that feeling from time to time. I have a lot of relatives back home and watching my younger cousins grow up to be young men and ladies gives me great joy. The youngest of my first degree cousin just turned 16 last October 27, 2009 and I can't believe how much she has changed. I big belated shout out to my beloved cousin Margaret. The only thing that sucks about being a an adolescent is getting those nasty breakouts. My cousin has quite a few breakouts and is looking at acne treatment
that is both effective, affordable and safe. Those are one of the things that most teenagers and adults alike don't want to have. But its part of life and growing up.

For weeks now I have been watching and keeping track of who is being eliminated every week in Dancing with the Stars. Last weeks elimination was a total surprise for me. Yesterday I seem to have missed watching the dance off. I wonder how that happen when I was checking the T.V. show listing for the schedule. Anyways I will be able to watch it online so my panties is not in a bunch, lol. However I did hesitate about watching tonight's dreaded double elimination. First to be eliminated was Melissa Joan Hart, which I am totally not surprise but still she was better than the second one to be eliminated tonight. Louie Vito and his partner were the second couple to be eliminated in tonight's show. Honestly, he should have been eliminated last weeks instead of Natalie Coughlin. Michael Irvin squared off with Vito and got the judges vote to stay on one more week. Tonight I saw Michael Irvin dance like he had never before and he totally enjoyed his Samba routine. This is just week 6 and hopefully each stars will get better and better. Can't wait for week 7. Stay tuned next week to find out who got eliminated or click here for the results.


Most kids know who Mario and Luigi are. They are the famous brothers who fight turtles, flying ducks, break bricks with there head and many more in Nintendo Games. Did you know that Super Mario was recently brought to life by a Pro Lego builder by the name Dirk HV? Check out the full story here. The Lego Mario stands 6 ft tall built from over 40,000 Lego's. With over that many Lego's no wonder it weighed 110 lbs. And the life size Mario Lego is up for sale at eBAY. Bidding is going on and the proceeds of the sale will go to Ronald McDonald Charity, auction ends on November 1, 2009.

Yipee its the weekend again. I look forward to the weekends since there is not school hence, I get to sleep in a little bit in the morning. School days are not that bad since I'm home with only Kaitlyn and its great if she doesn't get into her little moods. The thing that sucks is that with Kaitlyn I never get to watch any adults shows. With kids around your stuck on the cartoon channels where they watch educational, musical and fun shows. Fun for them but extremely boring for parents. And If you do get a chance to watch the shows you want you worry about if its to violent for them, the foul language and many more. Just last night I was watching Comedy Central with the kids and I just had to turn it off with all the racy jokes and swearing. For parents, stay at home moms like me its easier if we get to watch our shows anytime we want and when we want it. There is such a thing and watching our favorite shows on demand. How? Its easy just learn more at Its where we get to see the shows we usually miss in the daytime when our little munchkins are around. With Charter OnDemand we get to see all the shows we missed and more. With over 6,000 movies and shows that should leave someone a happy camper specially when you don't have to wait on a certain day to watch it. If your a Facebook fanatic like me then you can get updates and fun extras on Charter’s Facebook page.There are things that we should have and OnDemand shows are one of them, at least for me...

Have you guys watched Dancing with the Stars? I have and I was in so much shock when Natalie Coughlin was in the bottom two. When she was finally eliminated I was just floored. She had a lot of potential and I didn't think she would get eliminated this early on in the show. Natalie is an Olympic gold medalist in swimming and yes, she is very competitive and motivated. It must have come as a shock for her to have lost the race. Still she danced a good dance and should have deserved to compete further. This week I was so happy that Michael Irvin did a good job and in my opinion he does deserve to stay on. My top 3 picks are Mya, Mark and Donny. As for Aaron Carter he is a good dancer but he tries to hard that he ends up dancing more on the feminine side. This is just my opinion, to all Aaron fans don't hate! I'm just telling it as it is..... My favorite dancer so far is Demetri, he is just so fine and gorgeous. Sorry honey but he has the looks, the body, butt and the moves. Don't worry honey you will always be my snug bug, lol. Can't wait to see how the rest perform next week..

This morning we were greeted by the first frost of the season. The contrasting white sheen against the green color of the grass shows off the frost on the ground. Winter has really come early this year and I a lot of people have been saying that we are looking at a cold season. If your a regular reader of this blog you already know that I hate winter. Its just since I was born in a tropical country I feel like my body just rebel and wont accept the cold weather. It makes me miserable, my bones hurt, my skin dry. I am still lucky that even though I hate winter at least I don't have to wake up in the morning to go to work or drive through the snow for work. Getting ready to go out the door just takes longer now, with putting the gloves on, hat , scarf and jacket. The kids are all so bundled up and look like little hot dogs in a bun, lol. At least now I can really start looking forward to Summer which is a long time.

My appointment with the Chiropractor has been doing great! I totally feel much better and the pain in my lower back has improved a great deal and I sleep better now. Tomorrow I have another appointment again, my fourth session . Last Wednesday I was informed that our insurance will pay for twelve session at 100% no co-pay at that..I have been going there 3 times a week but since this coming week is going to be hectic I asked if I could postpone my session but the doctor suggested that I just do one day this coming week so I opted for Monday which is tomorrow. The weather has been pretty cold, MIL usually drops me off and picks me up right after. Let me just tell you that it feels so good lying down on the hydro bed where warm warm water massage your back and it ends with what I call crack and snap,lol.. I still yelp a little loud, but I told them its a good yelp. And before I forget I encourage my readers to visit your chiropractor. It was a good thing I did, found out that my spine is tilted a little bit to my right and that caused the pain on my lower right side and as well as my legs. My chiropractor even suggested that I get an ortho shoes to correct my posture and hopefully get my spine back to normal. No wonder I have always thought that my right leg was bigger than my left. Now the mystery has been solved. Tell you more next time..

Today's appointment was all about going to the Chiropractor. But what is Chiropractor? According to the definition from :

Someone who practices chiropractic. Chiropractic defined as a system of diagnosis and treatment that is based upon the concept that the nervous system coordinates all of the body's functions and holds that disease results from a lack of normal nerve function and employs manipulation and specific adjustment of body structures such as the spinal column so that pressure on nerves coming from the spinal cord due to displacement (subluxation) of a vertebral body may, it is believed, cause problems not only in the back but some distance from it as in the leg. Chiropractors therefore work to manipulate the spine with their hands to realign the vertebrae and relieve the pressure on the nerves. Chiropractic treatment is believed effective for muscle spasms of the back and neck, tension headaches, and some sorts of leg pain.

I must admit I was a little hesitant and scared about going. I really didn't know what to expect. Thank God my MIL was there to lend her support while Ralph stayed home with the kids. The doctor was very nice and really explained to me everything that they are going to be doing to help relieve me of the pain I have been experiencing. When the doctor finally asked me to lay down on the bed or table whatever you may call it I was a terrified. As he was aligning my spine I could not help but yelp out loud when I heard crack and my spine align,lol.. He gamely said to everyone there " we got a screamer here!" . Of course I didn't scream but I yelped loud,hahahahaha.. It just I couldn't help myself, it was painful but it felt so good. I have another appointment for Wednesday and he will decide by then how many sessions I need to help fix my back pain.. I do feel good, hopefully the pain will subside and I will wake up one day pain free...

After a long time of whining and complaining about back pain I finally did something about it. I called up a Chiropractor that our family doctor recommended and set up and appointment. Friday was the day I called and I was shocked at how soon the doctor could see me. I could have been seen that afternoon but we were just so swamped with running around so I opted for Monday. I really don't know what is wrong with my lower back specially on the right side but It is just killing me with pain. I'm literally in pain the whole day. I'm surprise I have not asked for prescription pain killers from our family doctor. With my appointment tomorrow I really hope I can get some relief. And I wanted to find out if its normal that I can crack my lower hips while I am standing and get some relief from the pain. I hope its just some pinch nerve or that my lower hips need some alignment. I will just have to wait for tomorrow.
