Don't you just love getting stuff in the mail. I get so excited whenever I get something in the mail. weather it be letter, junk mail or free sample from different products. This week I finally received my sample of the tide pods. I have heard so much about this tiny little pack of laundry soap. I must say, Tide is still the best detergent I have ever tried so far. It really does take out stains, whitens and smells great. One of my most prized stockpile is my bottles of tide laundry detergent. Its not a lot but it's more than enough to last me 6 months of laundry, I think,lol.

I was so excited when I recieved my tide pod sample in the mail. I tried it right away and I was not left disappointed. It really works, It comes in a small pre measured packs. Its so easy to use, just drop it in your washing machine, can be used cold, warm or hot water. I actually like it because you don't have to worry about spill. Sure, the price of Tide is a little bit more expensive than other laundry detergent but It does prove its worth. I have learned to buy my tide when the go on sale. With that said, I am on a constant lookout for Tide sale. My tide is only used on our whites and what I consider special garments, lol

I took the photo a week before we officially welcomE spring. This is the side walk leading outside of our cul de sac. Every spring time we are showered with white bloom from these trees. I never asked our neighbors what kind of tree's they are. It is not cherry blossoms. We always pass under the canopy of white blooms in the morning when I walk my oldest Kayla to the bus stop and in the afternoon on my way to picking her up at the bus stop. Sure the trees are a menace to my nose but the beauty of the blooms are just breathtaking. I makes me feel like I am literally walking in Wonderland. However, the blooms don't last long. Eventually they will start falling down to make way for the new leaves. Spring is such a magical time! Although Summer is my favorite Season, Spring is my second favorite season. How about you?

Spring is just a few days ahead. I can literally smell and feel Spring in the air. Everyday is a battle with my allergy, spring allergy that is. Last year my Allergies were so bad that I could not breathe through my nose at all. Eating was like a matter of life and death. Chewing and swallowing was like a death sentence. Breathing is was hard. A few brain cells must have died while I was oxygen deprived. I kid you not, my nose would drip like a leaky faucet! Rudolph and I looked like we were related due to my red nose from blowing all the time. I am hoping that my allergies won't be as bad this year. And even if its going to be as bad as last year, I would gladly bear through it one tissue box at a time rather than suffer through winter. It's still early to tell but I seems like the allergens in the air is not as bad as last year. Who knows, that may all change in a month when Spring is in full bloom!

This is my family

Taken last March 3rd, we were celebrating my MIL's 70th birthday. All her kids and grand kids were present. Its always a blast a trip having all of us in one roof. A typical Italian family,always loud! Instead of having dinner at our house my MIL and I decided to just eat out. This way we didn't need to cook or clean anything. All we need to do is show up, eat, have fun, pay the bill and leave the clean up to the bus boys, lol. We ate at a Chinese buffet. Most people would say why the Chinese buffet? First, its very affordable since not all of us can afford a $50 meal each on one sitting. Second, we happen to love the diversity of the food. We had to be seated in their party room and boy did we laugh our hearts out. It was really fun. Although, the food selection this time was horrible, it was bad! In spite of that, it was still a family filled day.

We all went back to our house for more talking and laughter. It was at our house that MIL wanted to get a picture of her kids and their respective family. The picture above is my family with my two beautiful girls, husband and loving Mother-in-law. I wonder what next year is going to be like. Maybe we will have it at our house this time, who knows!

This is an update on my previous blog post here. I wrote about our early Valentines/5th wedding anniversary. I have been forgetful as of late. Its more like a norm for me now,forgetting about everything even as simple as water on a vase. And we all know if we don't put water on a vase, a plant withers and eventually dies to go to flower heaven. Due to my absentmindedness, I was informed by my youngest that the flowers her daddy gave me were dead. I didn't believe her until I saw the evidence. Right where I left it my roses had withered due to no water in a vase. How could one forget about putting water? I was actually just cutting the flowers to a right length and I was going to arrange them better. I must have gotten side tracked because I forgot to put water.

I felt so horrible. While I felt bad my husband on the other hand was laughing at me. He could not believe I forgot to put water. I scramble to save my flowers but only 3 survived. At least my husband didn't get offended. From now on I will put water first before I cut and arrange any flowers,lol
