Lots of Opportunities!

I'm just so happy that I'm getting plenty of opportunities this month. Although the price is less than 10 bucks, it's still money that I wouldn't earn just sitting in front of the computer. I feel blessed and I thank God for it! A little money like that would build-up and eventually turn into something big if you save it up! So by next month it will be enough to pay for some of my debts!

Cyber Monday Deals!

So many sales online right now for it is Cyber Monday today, but I am so afraid to look for I might get tempted to buy unnecessary things. I already looked 3 of my favorite online stores and almost got tempted to buy something that I don't really need! It's a good thing I stopped myself before clicking the checkout button. I do want to look for Christmas presents and take advantage of the Cyber Monday deals before it's over. I still got plenty of Christmas shopping to do! Might as well look around and take advantage of the good deals!

Black Friday Deals!

Even though I did not go out anywhere yesterday for Black Friday Sales I still got some good deals by shopping online. I specifically stayed up 'til midnight last night so I will be first in line to get the free tote bag with some goodies inside on Victoria's Secret website! I've seen their ads on facebook and made sure to get one for myself. I also got some other stuff to giveaway as a Christmas presents for somebody and of course something for myself! Besides getting a tote bag, I also got free shipping plus a secret reward card! I think that's a pretty dang good deal! I love VS!

Belated Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday! As for me and my family it was Ok! The reason why it was only OK because me and hubby got into it a little bit, what a perfect timing to argue during Thanksgiving day wasn't it? But later on, everything went fine. We had a quite Thanksgiving dinner, food was wonderful. Although it started a little rough I'm still thankful though for everything that I got and have! Anyway, photos below is my son and stepdaughter getting ready to gobble some turkey!

He's 5 Days Old!

He's 5 Days Old!

Above is a photo of my now 5 days old Gabriel. He's been such an enjoyment to me everyday wether if he's crying or not. I am just enjoying every seconds with him. I want to spend as much time as possible with him before he grows bigger. I did not realize how much my first born has grown up until now. Before I thought he was so skinny for a 5 year old, but now since Gabe came, he looks like a giant to me. I can't believe how much I've missed of him growing up even though I see him everyday! It feels like I've missed half of his childhood, but I won't let it happen to this new one! I am so thankful to God for giving me these two beautiful boys! I feel so blessed! Thank you Lord!

He's here!

Finally, after waiting for over 9 agonizing months, he's finally here! Meet my little Gabriel James. He was born 3 days ago, weighed 6 lbs 12 ounces and 19¼ inches long! He looks exactly like my first born except he weighs a few ounces lesser. I thought for sure he'd be much bigger than my first born they way I was gaining weight but he wasn't. I am so glad to finally see him, I need to enjoy him while he still a newborn coz they grow up so fast and I do not have anymore plans to have more kids. Two lovely boys is good enough for me! Anyhow, below is some of the pictures that I snapped while we were at the hospital. Don't you think he looks like an angel? I think so too...sorry I am just a very proud mother here!

Taho for Breakfast!


This really brings back memories when I was growing up in my native land Philippines. For those of you that don't know what Taho is, it is a combination of soft bean curd or Tofu, tapioca pearls and some syrup. We eat it in the Philippines for breakfast or snacks. I always eat mine for breakfast. The Taho vendor usually comes in the morning and shout out "Tahooooo!!!", and that's when I knew it's time to get up. LOL. I am just so glad that this is one of the things that I could easily make here in the US, thanks to my husband for figuring out the recipe about 3 years ago! He too loves it!

and still waiting...!

I'm really starting to doubt now that the baby is gonna come out early. I guess he'll wait until his due date! I mean I don't have any problem waiting till his due date but it's just getting really uncomfortable and painful everyday. It doesn't really matter, my priority is for my baby's health! If he's not ready to come out yet, then so be it, I will be waiting patiently!

Got some Antibiotic!

I had another prenatal appointment earlier today which I am hoping would be the last one. They scheduled me for another appointment next week in case the baby is not out yet but hopefully this is the week he'll come out. I am now 37 weeks and 5 days and the doctor said that I could have the baby anytime now but the problem is, the baby seems like he's not ready to come out yet :( Anyway, the doctor was a little concerned about me still congested, she asked me how long do I have it and I told her that I had it for over 3 weeks now. So she prescribed me an antibiotic to try to get rid off it. If I have know that I can take antibiotic medicine while I'm pregnant I would have asked for it before now. I am suffering with this congestion thinking that I couldn't take anything. Anyhow, I guess it doesn't matter as long as I'm taking the antibiotic now, hopefully my congestion will be over soon!

Exhausted but Happy!

So exhausted right now but at the same time really happy for I managed to clean the house today even though I'm hurting inside. The baby is really low now and moving around is really next to impossible but I managed to pulled out some strength to do some house cleaning today. So I am very satisfied of myself for doing something productive today. I wanted to do that before I go into labor so I don't have to worry about cleaning when I get back from the hospital. I'll be too busy taking care of my newborn to worry about house cleaning. Hopefully the house wouldn't get messy before I go into labor coz it would really sucks if I have to do that all over again. Hopefully the baby will come out pretty soon!

Fall Festival!

My son has a Fall Festival Celebration today at their school. It started at 5:30pm and ends tonight at 8:30pm. We were all planning on going but hubby did not feel too good coz he's been working his butt off fixing my mother-in-law's yard, and me, as much as I'd love to go, I decided not to because I'm just hurting every time I walk and move. I really thought for sure that they baby will come out before now as much as I'm hurting in there. I'm still hoping though that he'll be out before next week starts. But anyhow, I told my son to tell his nana to bring her camera so she could snap some pictures while they're at Fall Festival coz I'd really want to see how much my son is enjoying it. I just hate that I missed it or I would have love to take lots of pictures of him. Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend ahead!

I thought for sure...

...I'll have the baby before this time, but obviously I was wrong. I am really ready to go into labor right this very minute, if the baby would just cooperate with me. I guess he's not ready to come out yet. He's 37 weeks old now, so he's consider full term, he can come out anytime if he wants to! It's really getting harder for me each day to move, it feels like I'm getting bigger and bigger everyday and I'm afraid that if the baby won't come out soon I will have complications on my delivery (GOD forbid!). (Sigh) I'm hoping and praying that before this week is over, he'll be here! Crossing my fingers!
