It's nice to be back!

Two consecutive Sundays that I missed going to the mass and it's nice to be there this morning. I really feel guilty whenever I don't get to go. Last Sunday was my own fault for not going, I just felt really tired that I couldn't get out of bed. I already had it in my mind last night that no matter how bad I feel when I get up that I will still go and thankfully, I felt really good this morning. I was still a little bit sleepy but I made it. Everybody was noticing my big belly now and they are just so supportive and excited about the baby which is I am so thankful for. That is something that I did not really have when I was pregnant with my first child since we were just home all the time. I am so glad that I'm getting a lot of moral support from other people with this second pregnancy! It's nice to know that there are people that really cares although they are not related with me! Thank God for GREAT FRIENDS!

Fresh from the Garden!

Another batch of freshly harvested veggies straight from our little garden. Like I said before, it's the best part of having a garden at home. Although we did not have that much varieties of vegetables this year, what we have there are giving us bountiful harvest. Anyway, we love pickles in this household, so those you see in the pictures such as banana peppers and picking cucumbers will be pickled! It sure is nice to know where the vegetables comes from unlike the ones that you can buy at the store. Who knows what kind of chemicals had been put on them. There will be plenty more of these soon! I just love it!

Life sucks sometimes!

Life really sucks sometimes. I guess it's meant to be that way because we won't be able to learn anything if it's perfect. But sometimes, I couldn't help but to complain. There are just so many downs lately in mine. Thank God for this baby in my womb and my son, they are reasons why I'm still hanging even though sometimes I just wanna give up. I always believe that for every pain and suffering, there's always joy and happiness awaits and that's worth waiting!

Unappreciative people!

There are just so many unappreciative people in this world. You do your best to be nice to them as possible, give them things to satisfy their wants although you're aware that it will only pacify them for a few days. Try to be the best listeners and give the best advice you can give them. You try to understand their feelings and extend your deepest sympathy for them when they're feeling down. Then, they act like they appreciate everything you do for them, they'll give you the sweetest smile and then when you turn around, they don't have hard time talking about you like a piece of garbage to other people! And the worst part is, if these people that I'm talking about are your own family. Couldn't get worst than that!

Great Finds!

It's the very first time I have ever been to Marshall's store yesterday. I've always heard that they're the same as TJ Maxx, I wanted to go and check it out and I am so glad I did. I have been hunting for a red handbag for a while now and I just found the perfect size red handbag there on sale for $25.00. Although it's not a very popular brand, I still feel in love with it's stylish looks, I would have preferred the Guess brand but it was too expensive for my budget, so this one will do for now until I can save up some money, plus this one that I got is very roomy inside. And addition to this great find, I found me DG sunglasses for $6.99! How great of a deal is that?

No updates!

I didn't realize that I did not post anything on this blog for 4 days! There's just so many things going on in this household lately. I am really impressed on how those other people could keep up having more than 2 blogs to update every day. I only have 2 but as you can see, I can't keep up with them. Well one thing, I don't get on the internet anymore like the way I used to. I realized that it's very unhealthy to just sitting in front of the computer all day, can't do anything. So I really I wanna thank every one who has the time to check on this blog!

Pregnancy update!

Today, I am 5 months, 2 weeks and 5 days pregnant. I am almost over of my second trimester. I can't wait to see this baby, 3+ more months and then that moment will become reality! I am really, really excited about it. Baby is moving a lot lately, very active which can only mean one thing, HEALTHY BABY! I am so glad, I don't have any complications with this second pregnancy and that my morning sickness ordeal is finally over!
I am kinda struggling though eating much healthier food. It seems like I couldn't keep eating junks like candies and chocolates. I really don't wanna gain too much weight. I already gained about 20 lbs and still got about 3 more months to go! I only ate grapes and carrot with ranch dressing for lunch today. I am trying to start a much healthier diet. Maybe one candy a day won't be too bad. That is, if I can keep myself from not eating more than one. It is really hard when there are so many temptations around me. But it's all up to me to decide!

It feels like spring!

I just love the weather today, it is really cool like spring! The other night, I watched the weather forecast and they mentioned something about having a spring-like weather in a few days, I really did not believe it, knowing how hot it had been the past months. But here it is, the weather is really cool outside, I'd say it's about 72-76 degrees out there right now. Of course, it looks like it's about to rain, but still, this is way better than being scorching hot! I hope this will last until next week!

Our little trip to the pool!

Me and my friend Melisa relaxing after a little dipped in the pool!

The pictures above were taken earlier at the pool. Even though the sun wasn't completely out, the heat was still scorching but the pool was just the perfect cure for it. The water was really cool, it felt really good! We're talking of going back again next week. We had a lot of fun!

Pool tomorrow!

This is the kind of weather where you really have to go to the beach or pool to cool down! It's a good thing we'll be heading to the public pool tomorrow which is about 15 minutes away from where we live. I bet the water would feel so good! I just couldn't tolerate this kind of weather. The heat is just too painful it's unbearable! I can't even stay outside for long period of time. The heat will just penetrate into my skin I can't stand it! Even inside the house, the air conditioner is not helping much. Our inside temperature stays above 80's even the AC is on all day. Anyways, I hope you all have a good week and staying cool!

So Frustrated!

Since yesterday, I have two "Grab a Bag Tasks" for both of my blogs, but for some reason, when I click the accept button, it keeps giving me this error message. I just don't understand why it's happening like that. I need this tasks so bad. I already sent a message to the help desk, maybe they can figure out what's happening. If those tasks are gone, why is still keep showing on my account for two days now? Grrrrr..this is really irritating!

Big Brother 13!

Yes finally! After waiting all year of the new season of Big Brother, it will finally be aired tonight at 9! I can't wait to watch it, plus watch the "Big Brother after Dark" on Showtime. We'll see if there is a lot of drama this season like the previous one. This is one of my favorite reality shows, so I'm always looking forward when the new season comes! Big Brother fans don't forget to tune in tonight!

Almost there!

Tomorrow is the long awaited moment we have been waiting for! It's the day we will find out what the baby's gender is gonna be. I'm telling you what, I couldn't hardly wait! I don't know if I'll be able to sleep tonight, that's how anxious I am. We'll finally put an end to our little guessing over here as to what the baby is gonna be. Everybody thinks it's gonna be a boy, but I think it's gonna be a girl. I hope I'm not wrong. But still, either way, I'm still gonna be happy that God blessed me with another bundle of joy, as long as it is a healthy baby! Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July and have a pleasant week!

Lovely Firework displays!

I've been living in the US for the past 6 years and last night was my first time to watch the 4th of July firework displays. I've always known that there is a firework display 15 minutes where we live but I wasn't really interested on going before until last night. Thanks to my stepdaughter for being so insistent to go! I enjoyed it very much, as well as my 5 year old son and hubby! I took some wonderful pictures and videos. We'll definitely do it again next year!

Aren't they beautiful? I thought so too. Hope you all enjoy!

After waiting for 3 days for my flat screen monitor that FedEx had delivered to the wrong house, I finally got it! Thanks to our honest neighbor for bringing it to our house yesterday. I was really shocked when somebody was knocking on our door and when I opened it, there it was, a  Deputy or Police, standing in our porch, holding a big box which was my package that I have been worrying about! It's really nice to know that there are still honest people left in this world especially if they're an authority figure! I am just so pleased! Now, I am enjoying my wide, bright, flat screen monitor!

Still no sign!

Well, it's been 2 days and I still don't see any sign for my flat screen monitor to come any sooner. I guess the FedEx driver can't relocate where he left the dang package. FedEx customer service called me yesterday about my package and said she'd call me right back, but she didn't. We'll see if she'll call me today. This is just great! I want my monitor now!!! I'm tired of looking at this bulky one that I'm using right now! If I have known that this would have happened, I should have just bought it at Walmart store the other day and I could have enjoyed my flat screen monitor right this minute instead of worrying about it. But I wanted to save a little money, it was much cheaper to buy it online. I just hope that they'll reimburse my money if ever they could not find it!
