trying to be fit

Being a stay at home mom , i do my best in keeping myself in the best shape. Its not just for the kids , but for myself as well. I am so afraid of getting sick as I know it would be so hard for all of us when that happens. So everyday, I see to it that I have a good diet though I admit I eat junk once in a while. Exercise is one thing I lack , really . How I wish I can run for 3o mins or even just 15 mins a day. Lastly, I take supplements like Vitamin C and Multivitamins. I am s prone in catching colds so Vit C is a must for me. Lately, a freind of mine suggested that I try these Acai Berry Supplements, particularly the Acai Berry Energy Supplements . My friend knows that I have a busy schedule at home with the 2 kids so she wants me to try an energy supplement to keep me going the entire day. I hope it works for me, i badly need it now because my princess is getting all over the place. Anyone who tried this product already?

Accounting firms in Vegas

I am so amazed on how my sister can do financial analysis and all that money stuff. Well, she is an accountant in a bank so i guess that explains why. I remember when she was still in college, she would go on heavy research and training for her craft. And now I am so proud with what she achieved in life at such a young age. She would like to conquer new heights and is thinking of moving to Las Vegas. She told me that there is a big market for acountants there and she would like to try her luck. She has given me well known firms like Las Vegas Quickbooks Accounting Firm , and she hopes she can apply there soon. She has read a lot of features about this firm and how they value their employees and clients as well. This is what she is looking for in her employer. I hope she will continue to soar high , whatever plans she has now.

Beauty Schools

Cosmetology education is a fast growing course now . I know a lot of girls who are into it already, and they are telling me how much they enjoy it. It's not just the simple tricks of putting the make up and making someone feel great, but it is the knowledge that you gain that matters after the course. If only i am not busy with my kids now, I would be very interested with this. I know a few and distinguished beauty schools here in our place which are somehow like the beauty school houston . I think it is the Regency Beauty School that has gotten big all over USA . My sister mentioned it a few times to me because she wants to try cosmetology too. When I have some free time in my hands, I would definitely have this on top of my to-do list. But the question is , when would that be? I hope it's soon.

fun under the sun

and the pics are never ending!!! I only have a few pics of him because I was also at the swimming pool that time. I just enjoyed myself there. Some were taken by my SIL.
I am still going through our pictures and I feel like missing the place again. I have edited some of the pics but Im still trying to finish all before I upload it at my flickr. I am sooo in love with Adobe Lightroom. Thanks to my cousin for that suggestion. Now I am loving photography more.

oh yeah!

Try out this quiz ! I am hooked with facebook because of some games and of course, i get updated with the life of my friends and my relatives. And yeah, I play games once in a while LOL

Take me there

During our vacation, we saw this very lovely pavillion overlooking the beach. It is surrounded by glass walls that can give you a wonderful scenery at any time of the day. The ceiling is well- architectured and the furnishings inside were so classic. I cant help but dream of having our own renewal of vows there. I know that there is a big budget with destination weddings , but I can't stop dreaming. I remember seeing great wedding venues at the Karisma Hotels in Mexico. Imagine a wedding near the beach , where the wind and sun meet. I hope that soon i would be invited in this kind of wedding , I bet it would be so romantic. I should start saving now if I want a wedding like that. Who wouldnt love this view on your wedding day ?

Whats new with crazy 8?

Crazy 8 recently had a sale , but i wasnlt able to grab one. I think its an additional 25% off any item. Sounds like a good deal to me, but I am really saving for the princess' birthday so I have to cut down my shopping expenses. Anyway, I looked at the site because I am curious hahaha. Here's what i want for the boy ..

i love this casual and comfy look on my boy. I hope i can still make it at the sale!

i like this shirt

I wonder where I can get one for my husband. he loves statement shirts and this one is too good to pass up. He got a lot already, most are from Team Manila . My fave from his collection is the Tosilog series , i think that was his very first from TM. Anyway, this shirt rocks and I bet a lot would immitate what is in here. I grabbed this photo from this site.

the 7th line is soooo true . What's your favorite line from this shirt?

Finally !

After all the delay in my part, I finally have the insurance quote that my husband has been waiting for. Now , we just need to compare it with the other one that was submitted to us a few weeks ago and then we are set to decide which one to get. I got really busy last week after our trip because I was swamped with back logs at work. Its only now that I was able to catch up. Now that I am done with this insurance, I will now proceed with another task , birthday party preps for the princess. It has taken a back seat for a while but now, its on full swing again. about 3 months she will turn one! I cant wait!

Perfect Baptism Gift

Three of my good friends gave birth recently, and would you believe I was chosen to be a godmother for all three babies? I feel grateful with that and as early as now, I am looking for possible baptism gifts for the three babies. Being a mom, I know that usually , clothes and toys are received during baptism celebration. So I thought of something unique and useful for the babies. I found this really adorable Baby Bedding Sets from . I think I would go for this color for a break from all those pink stuff.

Lavender and brown complimented its tones and it creates a sweet and calming effect . Here's what's included in this set:

  • 1 Baby Crib Quilt
  • 4 piece Baby Crib Bumper
  • 1 Baby Crib Fitted Sheet
  • 1 Baby Crib Skirt (Dust Ruffle)
  • 2 extra wide Window Valances
  • 1 Diaper Stacker
  • 1 Toy Organizer
  • 1 Decorative Pillow
  • BONUS GIFT Free matching high quality hand made zipper bag with handle
I am sure my mommy friends will find this very useful even until the baby turns one. I am thinking of getting one for my baby too , i just need to check first the size and if it will fit her crib. The site said this one fits most cribs and toddler beds.

Debt Collection Agency

I have been out of the corporate world for years now, so sometimes I am a bit late when it comes to what is new in the financial aspect. Lately I just check on the internet for some news and updates of this situation. I have come across debt collection and how does it makes a company's profit grow. American Profit is one company that is into debt collection. They set up a plan and strategy depending on the company's needs and its nature . Each plan is custom made depending on what a company needs. One thing they promise though, they will help you with your profits and they will provide assistance in collecting debt from your clients. Since this is their field, they know best on how to approach clients with their debts and how to make them pay it in time. American Profit has helped a lot of companies already and they are continuously doing their best in this field of service. If your company needs help in this aspect , why not give American Profit a try. You will be surprised on how they can help you with debt collection.

Beach Boy

Sharing with you some shots of my boy at the beach. He really had fun this time as he gets to enjoy everything more. During our first day , he was wearing his shoes, but the second day , he find it more comfy to walk around with bare feet. He is soo dark now, good thing I always apply sunblock to his face and all over his body. I will definitely plan another beach getaway come Summer.

we are back!

We had a blast during the weekend ! Gosh, I am so lazy to do anything here in the house, and all i wanna do is sleep and rest. It was a tiring one, but its loaded with fun and good memories for our family. I have to sort out our pics then upload it to my sites. Promise to be back for my stories too.

I cant wait to go back to Shangrila. My boy had a grand time playing at the E ZONE. I think this is really a nice age for him to travel. Imagine, he cant get enough of Timezone and Billiards. I just wish they have a ping pong table too . But nevertheless, it was indeed a perfect vacation for us!
