I'm loving the weather...

Right now, outside temperature is 52 degrees, windows are open and I can feel that cool breeze coming in! I have been waiting for this cooler weather, now that it's here I am just loving it! Tomorrow will be much cooler than today. We will be going to a Heritage Festival tomorrow and try to raise some more money for our church by selling baked goods. I love going to this Festival, so many stuff to look around such as baked goods, crafts, fresh produce and so much more. I'm really excited! We did not go last year, so I'm really looking forward for tomorrow. I'm planning on fixing "Puto Cheese" and try to sell it there, that is my only donation for our church aside from devoting my time helping out in our booth. I really hope it will be a success this year, we did not do too good last year. Anyway, this is all for now, I gotta start baking my "Puto Cheese" and get them ready for tomorrow. Seems like I'm gonna have a long night tonight! So have a wonderful evening guys!

Wonderful Weather!

I couldn't be happier about the weather. It's only 73 degrees outside right now. Haven't turn the AC for 2 days. Window and door are open so we can have fresh air circulating inside the house and it feels dang good! I haven't watch the weather forecast for the rest of this week but I am hoping it will stay like this!

31+ Weeks!

I am now 31+ weeks of my pregnancy and yes Gabriel James is kicking a lot. It feels like I have a soccer player inside me, that's how much he is kicking in my womb! LOL! The closer my due date is the more excited I am getting! Anyway, the picture below is of me with my 31 week belly!
I'm all swelled up! Yikes!

Got it Finally!

After two years of waiting for this moment to come, it's finally here! I am talking about my driver's license. Yes I have waited for 2 years for it and thank GOD the waiting is finally over. I'm so thrilled to death! This morning was my second time to try out for the road test and I'm so glad that I did it right this time. I made a couple of minor mistakes but I still passed the test and I couldn't be happier! Now I can focus on more important things!

It's Officially Autum!

Today is the official day of Autumn season. Although the trees hasn't turn into the Fall foliage yet and the weather is still a little bit hot for a fall season but you can definitely feel that the season is changing during early mornings! And then when you go to the store, Halloween as well as Thanksgiving decors are being displayed already where you can feel that Autumn vibe. We still got about a month for Halloween and two months for Thanksgiving but it will be here before we know it. That's how time flies! And of course, in this household, the most anticipated day for us will be here as well around Thanksgiving. The arrival of my baby boy #2! 

Anyhow, it won't be long until we'll see the wonderful foliage that Autumn season will bring. Some leaves are already turning but not quiet obvious yet. Hopefully, by that time I'll have that dslr camera that I have been longing to have in my hands, ready to snap some wonderful Autumn pictures!

It's here!

I was so excited when my hubby told me that I had a package from Walmart yesterday. Me and my MIL were running some errands so I wasn't home when it came. I had to think for a minute what I ordered at Walmart and then it hit me that I got my son the Super Mario Costume for Halloween. I was so excited to come back to see if it's worth it's price. But I forgot that my son was at home too that I couldn't open it in front of him because I want it to be a surprise this coming Halloween, so I had to wait until he went to bed. Let me tell you, when I opened that package and saw the costumes I got more excited because it is just too cute! It came with a hat and mustache! Me and hubby were trying on the hat and was cracking up about it last night! It was definitely worth the price and I can't wait to see my son wear it on Halloween!

Loving my Call of Duty all over again!

I just recently installed the Call of Duty 4 (Modern Warfare) game on my laptop again. I already finished the game 2 years ago and uninstalled it on my laptop but lately I have been wanting to play it again, so the other night, I installed it back on my laptop and basically played it all night! I'm falling in love with it all over again! It's one the best video game I ever played (well, I did not really played that much video games, LOL!)! I also played the one that came out next to it, but I did not like it as much as the COD 4! I got the COD:Black Ops a year ago for my hubby's birthday last year, unfortunately my laptop is not fast enough to play it. But it doesn't matter, I'm just happy that I'm playing the COD 4 again!

Got to have this for my son!

My 5 year old son is so crazy about Super Mario. It started when he was just 3 years old. I downloaded the Super Mario game online so I could play it, it only took one time for him to watch me play and he wanted to try it out and since then he has been so crazy about playing the game. I kinda regretted that I let him play the game because he figured out how to download and installed the game all by himself. I caught him many, many times downloading and installing new Mario games including yesterday, but it won't happen anymore since my husband figured out how to block their website from connecting to our internet. I don't mind him playing it on my computer, but I just don't like when he starts downloading and installing new game coz it does put viruses on my computer. It happened many times!

But anyway, you can already see a lot of Halloween stuff displayed in the store, it only means Halloween is fast approaching! The other day, I was browsing Walmart's site and I notice that they have some Halloween costumes displayed on their home page, so I clicked it to see if they have a Super Mario costume and there it was for $19.00, right then I decided that I'm gonna buy it for my son for this coming Halloween. I know he would be so thrilled about it! It is a little expensive considering he'll only wear it one time but I'm thinking maybe get one or two sizes bigger than the size he's wearing right now, so he can use it again in the next year or two. Right now they're offering free shipping on it, so this will be the perfect time to buy it! It's a good thing I waited a little while, it sure does pay sometimes to wait a little bit! Anyway, the picture above is the costume that I am talking about. I can't wait to see him wear it!!

I am debating...

...wether I should go back to bed or start doing some household chores?? I feel really sleepy right now, I went to bed about 11 pm but couldn't sleep at all until 3 am. I woke up at 6:15 this morning to get my son ready for school and I am really debating if I should go back to bed coz I am really, really sleepy but at the same time don't want to coz I got plenty of things to do. If I go to sleep, when I wake up later, I probably won't feel like doing anything! I tried drinking coffee this morning, hoping that it would help me stay awake but it seems like it's not working. It's probably a bad decision to go back to bed but I couldn't force myself to stay awake, right now as I'm writing this post, I'm dozing off! Well, I got to go, have a wonderful Friday everyone and thank you for stopping by!

Getting so uncomfortable!!

Moving these days is making me so uncomfortable. I still have about 2 months to wait before the baby will come out. My due date is November 23 but I'm thinking seriously that this baby will come out somewhere between last week of October to mid weeks of November. I am so ready for this baby to come out, it is almost next to impossible for me to do the usual things that I do for it sometimes hurts my lower abdomen when I move. I am about 29 weeks pregnant now and currently weigh 133 lbs. I am trying my best not to eat anymore junk so I wouldn't gain over 145 lbs by the time I give birth but I think it might be impossible not to reach that number since I still got about 2 months left. But to me it doesn't really matter as long as my baby is healthy and I won't have any complications!

So many temptations!

The last thing I wanna do is to get tempted to shop online. There are so many goodies that on sale right now that I would like to have but if I wanna keep my plan to buy a dslr, I shouldn't buy anything and try to save up my money! I still got plenty of things to get in preparation for the new baby to come but I will wait until I have my baby shower, so I wouldn't have any baby stuff twice. The solution to this is not to look at anything so I wouldn't be tempted but it's really hard when they keep sending you emails as to what's on sale. I just got to be strong and try to just bite my tongue so I won't get tempted!

How I wish...

...I could paint right now! I miss oil painting so bad. It's been 3 or 4 years since I painted my last painting. Now that it's a lot cooler outside, it would be the perfect time to do it. It's very messy to do it inside the house, plus the mineral oil stinks really bad! I still didn't have any chance to get some more painting supplies at Michael's. I don't know why I did not think about it every time we go over. We've been there at least 3 or 4 times last couple of months ago and I just totally forgotten about it. Hopefully this week, if I'm able to pass my road test again, I can go to Michael's by myself. That way I'll be able to focus on what I need to get there.

Grandparents Day!

Today, my son's school is having a "Grandparents Day" where the Grandparents have luncheon with their Grandchildren. Of course my son is super duper excited about it as well as my mother-in-law. They get to spend time and eat together at school today. It's only a 30-minute event but I thought it's pretty cool that the school is doing it. I really hope she brought her camera so she can at least have a photo taken of him and her to the said event!

Well, as you can see I had me a 3-day break from blogging. I made up my mind that during the weekends I won't be blogging. It will be like the same as working, no work during the weekends. Sometimes I just don't feel like posting an entry here or I don't have anything interesting to say. So it's probably good idea that I'll take a break on weekends.

Anyhow, this Labor Day is pretty much ruined from the tropical hurricane Lee. I saw on the news today that there are a lot of events that had been cancelled due to the heavy rain. We're currently in a flood warning right now until Wednesday. Although I/We did not have any plans for today, I kinda feel bad for those people who planned to go somewhere today. I do have an appointment tomorrow, I just hope that the weather is not as bad as today. Anyway, even though it's not such a good day today, I hope you all still had a wonderful Labor's Day!

1st Day of September!

Wow, how time flies! We are now in the "ber" month! I can't believe summer is almost over, I'm so glad for that by the way! I'm so looking forward for the autumn to come. The official day will begin on the 23rd of this month. Autumn and Spring are my favorite seasons here in the US. Aside from the weather cooling down, it is also very lovely to look around when everything starts to turn yellow, orange, red, and all that beautiful color that you can see during Fall season! Hopefully, by that time, I already have me a DSLR camera that I have been wanting! I would sure love to take beautiful pictures of the mountains when that time comes and of course, the main reason why I want one so bad, so I can take an excellent quality picture when my baby boy #2 is born this coming November. I'm crossing my finger! Anyway, before this 1st day is over, I hope you all had a wonderful 1st day of September!
