Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween Everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful and safe trick or treating! As of me and family, we had a wonderful Halloween/Birthday celebrations. Yes, it's my hubby's birthday as well! It had been a busy week for me, yesterday I had a baby shower and today I was preparing for my hubby's birthday. We did not really do anything special, we just had some pizzas and hot wings from Papa John's as well as ice cream and cake. We invited a close friends of ours that live nearby, they had a little margaritas for a little buzz, didn't get any for you all know I'm in my 3rd trimester of pregnancy. Any minute now, the baby could come out! I can't wait for that. As the days goes by, I feel like I'm getting bigger and bigger. I really don't want to gain up to 150 lbs. As of now, I weigh 141 lbs, that's pretty big enough compare to my first pregnancy which I only gained up to 127 lbs. Big difference isn't it? But anyway, I had so much fun today as well as yesterday on my shower. I love all the presents that I got for my baby. I'm so thankful to have wonderful friends who made it possible! Below are mixed pictures from today and yesterday...

I Feel much Better!

Thank God I'm feeling so much better. Although my nose is still clogs, I can handle it better without the headache and sore throat. I got to get better before my baby shower this coming Sunday. I'm doing pretty good with this cold without taking any medicines. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be much, much better than today!

Restless night!

Last night for me really sucked! I did not sleep a wink at all. My nose was bothering me so bad plus a very bad headache. I found out that the headache was caused by a high blood pressure. I really didn't know what trigger my blood pressure to get high like that and my pulse was pumping like a marathon runner, went up to 125. I did not really take any medicines for my cold unless it's those cold lozenges and drops that made my BP high. I was sucking them all day yesterday and last night as well to try to get rid off my sore throat and cold. Today I did not bother taking anything for fear that my BP get high again. It really suck to get sick when your pregnant! I've been taking lots of water and orange juice. Hopefully those would be enough to make me feel better soon!

I'm getting sick!

The last thing I need is to get sick while I'm 35 weeks pregnant. I don't know if it was a good decision on my behalf not to get a flue shot this year. I don't usually get sick with flue so I decided not to get it this year. I was afraid what the shot might do to the baby in my womb. My mother-in-law got a flue shot 3 weeks ago and she got really, really sick, the same thing happened to her last year and to my husband. Hubby did not get a shot this year for he was afraid he'd get sick like the last time and he advised me not to get it while I'm pregnant. I don't think I'm getting the flue, I think what I caught is just a common cold and hoping it will go away soon. I'm trying to drink as much orange juice as I can and I've been taking vitamin C and cold lozenges. Other than a sore throat and a little bit of clog and runny nose I feel fine, so I'm hoping by tomorrow those symptoms would go away!

So bored!

I don't know what it is but I have been so bored lately! I'm trying to entertain myself by cleaning but the feeling keeps coming back after I'm done with what I was doing. The internet is not helping either, seems like everything is so quiet, I just don't know. All I know is, I can't wait for my baby boy #2 to come out. I'm getting anxious and impatient as the day is getting closer. My due date is November 23rd, that is still about a month from now, but I doubt if the baby would wait that long, his head is already down the last time I was in my prenatal appointment. It's getting harder and harder for me to move everyday, sometimes I feel like I'm in labor. I'm so ready for him to come out! 

I'm so glad that I got everything cleaned and organized inside the house before his arrival. The only thing for me to do is to get the playpen with bassinet that I am wanting as a placement for a crib since a space in this household is an issue. We still have the old crib at my mother-in-law's garage that my first child was using when he was a baby but I am not gonna use it this time because we do not have room for it! I'll be setting up his sleeping place in the very last minute, maybe after my baby shower this coming Sunday. I really think the baby will come early or in the middle week of next month or maybe late this week. We'll just see...Anyhow, I hope you all have a wonderful Monday and great weekdays ahead!

Apple Orchard Field Trip!

 We just got back from my son's apple orchard field trip earlier today. I found out that it was all our first time to the apple orchard including my husband to my surprised. We all went including my friend Melisa. We all had a great time. Took lots and lots of pictures. My son had a blast! We got to picked some apples, rode on a 20ft long wagon for a tour, then went in a corn maze and soybean path! It was wonderful indeed! Anyway, pictures below are some of the photos that me and hubby took at the orchard.

Excited for his Fieldtrip!

I can't wait to go on my son's upcoming field trip this coming Friday to the local Apple orchard. I have never been to one and so does my son. Me and him both are really excited! Hubby is coming too since he'll be the one driving. Chaperones has to provide their own transportation, so he don't have any choice but to drive me coz he don't want me driving yet while I'm 35 months pregnant, I'm scared anyway! I'll be taking lots of pictures, don't wanna miss anything on his very first trip to apple orchard! Plus I want to take lots of pictures of the mountains, the trees are turning into those beautiful colors already and I want to take nice pictures of them before all the leaves falls off of them! So expect lots of pictures by Friday or the next day! I'll be sharing it here!

I thought I can do it!

Well, I posted on my other blog about having tons of works that I have to do today and I was hoping that I could do everything today. Unfortunately I just couldn't! I'm not even half way there! All I did is listed some of the stuff that I'm trying to sell online and moved them out of the house and into our storage building and I'm telling you what I am exhausted already for just that little work that I did! It's really hard to accomplish household chores when my big gut gets on my way! I guess I won't have any choice but to do the house cleaning tomorrow, at least I got something productive done today instead of just napping! The house looks much better already without the piles and piles of boxes just sitting all over the house so visible to the naked eye! It will be much easier to do the house cleaning tomorrow! Hopefully I'll have the energy to do it!

Smartest Kids in the World

Thanks for the guest post by Esteban Vinson

My daughter is one of the smartest kids I know and she recently bought her first house! I was so excited when she told me about it and asked for my advice and I just can’t believe that she’s old enough to do something like this. They grow up so fast! If I had only known earlier I would have jumped on that home security atlanta special I saw for her but either way, I need to talk to her about getting an alarm in the area where she lives. Christy has a lot of great friends and a good head on her shoulders but she’s only lived away from home for a short time and I want to make sure she knows what she’s doing when she’s walking to and from her door at night. I guess it’s the ex-cop in me that’s getting all worked up but I feel like it’s my responsibility to make sure my daughter is fully protected, you know? I think that’s your job as a good, caring dad!

so bored!

It's a beautiful windy day today! Unfortunately my mood was not as beautiful as the weather! I've been so grumpy since I woke up this morning, went back to sleep right after my son went to school. Woke up again about noon and it was just extremely boring for me today! I did not know what to do. The internet world seems so quite as well. So many things to do around the house but I wasn't in the mood to do anything either. I hate days like this. And of course, my condition right now is not really helping at all. I am now 34 weeks of my pregnancy and it's really getting uncomfortable with each passing day. I am so ready for my baby to come out but it's not time yet. I still got at least about 3 weeks to wait! (Sigh!)

Another long day!

Feeling so sleepy and exhausted right now! It has been a long day today. Went to bed about 2 in the morning last night, I meant to go to sleep early but I got sidetracked from reading novels and don't want to stop once I started reading it! Woke up about 6 in the morning to get my son ready for school. Afterwards went out with my in-law and friend all day! Been running some errands and did some other stuff. Reason why I'm feeling crappy right now! I still got some things to do before I can go to bed. Got to get ready to pack and print stamps for the stuff that I sold online so I can mail them tomorrow! I'm so ready to hit the hay right now but got to do what I have to do. So later folks, have a wonderful night!

The legal way!

I don't know if you all heard about K6 herbal incense, as what I understand, it is a legal way to substitute Marijuana. I've seen something about that on the news one time. If you have to have drugs in your system why not do it the legal way? 

 You can find it at Herbal City LLC. They offer a lot of legal mood enhancing herbal products that help people feel good like this Spiritual powders. I have not use any of these products so I can't really tell if it works or not. But if you're into that kind of stuff, you can also check their Party Enhancers, it will be perfect for nightlife people who's into partying all night!

Should I go or not?

My son has  a field trip tomorrow at our local fire department. I am really debating wether I should go or not. My mother in law will chaperone him on that field trip. She asked me earlier if I would like to go too. Part of me wants to go so I can take a lot of pictures on his first field trip, but there is also part of me that don't want to. He has another upcoming field trip on the 21st of this month to the apple orchard. I'm 100% that I am going on that one. I still got about several hours to think if I should go with them tomorrow or not.

Lovely Mountain Pic!

Me and my hubby can make up a good team! Picture above was taken by me using my Nikon D3100 and hubby edited and enhanced it a little bit! He is so good at enhancing photographs, I got to give him that credit! That's one of the things he's really good at! Anyway, this pic was taken at our mountain earlier. I had a wonderful time snapping pictures up there since most of the trees are already turning into those beautiful fall foliage! Well, I thought I'd share it here, hope you all enjoy the picture!

Another Beautiful Day!

It started chilly this morning, it was in 40's but that's better than in the 30's. Now it's 74° outside, my ideal temperature! Sun is shining so bright outside but not scorching hot like we've been experiencing during the summer, it is another beautiful day today indeed! I just wish it will just stay this way. I'm not crazy about winter. I'm pretty sure it's gonna be another nasty winter this year. I'm hoping that there won't be no blackouts for 4 days like we had 2 years ago. 

Anyway, I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful day. Have a great and wonderful weekend ahead!

It's here!!!

My new DLSR camera has finally came earlier. I got to fool with it earlier but not much because me and my friend were trying to organize and clean my storage building. So I only got play with it a little bit. I am very satisfied with the quality of the pictures that I took earlier. I know that this camera is very expensive for our financial situation right now, but the pictures that it takes is worth every penny. Even hubby loves it as much as I do! It's gonna take me a while to get use to it and learn all the buttons on it. Anyway I attached some pictures that I took earlier, of course I had to cropped it since a single picture is about 3 mb. I love my new camera!
My fairy lamp...I love her face!

Marigolds in my garden are still blooming...

It's comin'..it's comin'!

Picture above is my new Nikon D3100 DSLR camera that I bought last Friday. I just checked the tracking number earlier and it's saying that it's in Charlotte, NC today...so it could possibly come tomorrow even though the estimated delivery date is on Friday, October 7th. Oh gosh, I couldn't wait to get a hold of it. I would not know what to shoot first. I'm extremely excited about it. I've been waiting for this day that I'd own one of this and it finally came true! Thank you Lord!

Thank Goodness it warmed up!

Now this is what I am talking about! Outside temperature is 61° which is to me the perfect temperature for fall. This morning, it was 34° outside, had to take my son to the bus stop for school. I feel so sorry for him for he had to go to school in that kind of weather. Anyway, I am so thankful that it finally warmed up and the sun is shining brightly! I don't have to hesitate to go outside for it's not that cold anymore! Hope you guys have a wonderful Monday!

Affordable Insurance...

Insurance is not required where I came from. I think it's because, there are so many poor people over there that they couldn't afford to get one. Not until I came here in America that I became aware that there are so many different kinds of insurance that you have to have here like life insurance. Everything is so expensive here that a Family Insurance is must if you don't want to pay the expenses out of your own pocket when there is an emergency! But like other countries, there are poor people here too that couldn't afford to get one.

But I know for a fact that there are companies out there that offers Cheap Life Insurance, you just got to find the right one. If you click the highlighted words above, it will take you to a site where you can check their Best Rates Life Insurance. It will be worth checking it out!
