Planted More Annual Plants

I really don't like planting annual plants for the fact that they don't come back every year. But there are just so many beautiful annual flowering plants that sometimes it's hard for me to resist! Just like earlier I went to Walmart's garden center with the intention to find some perennials to plant in my flower beds in front of the house. They really didn't have much perennials there so I ended up buying annuals. 

Well no regret about that decision this time for I got those annuals fairly cheap. I got 3 different flowering plants that I planted an hour ago in  the front and two Verbenas that I am going to plant in my hanging plants. The Verbenas are perennials so hopefully they'll come back next year if the don't die on me!

Anyway I was going to take pictures of my newly planted plants but time slipped away when I started watering our vegetable garden and the new plants. Tomorrow is probably better anyway because it was starting to get dark by that time...

Taco Without the Shell

Picture above was what I had for lunch today. It's a leftover tacos from our supper the other day. As you can see, there is no taco shell, it's because we ran out the other day. I don't believe in wasting food so I try to eat what's leftover from previous days. Instead of throwing it, I used lettuce as a wrapped and I tell you it is just as good as using a taco shell. After all, the flavors of the taco is all in the meat. Filling and satisfying lunch for me!

Back To Shape!

It is really frustrating for me these past few weeks about gaining weight, I was down to 107 at one point and now I'm back to 110.8. That's where my weight is staying for the past weeks and I do not like it at all. I wanna go down to at least before I got pregnant with my second child which was about 103! 

I noticed that my stomach is floppier than ever. It's where I really need to work most. I wanna get back where I had some abs before I even got pregnant to my first child. I was doing 100 sit ups a day but I just couldn't do it now because other than I am busy taking care of my kids and the house chores, it is just too much work for me. So other day I bought a hula hoops thinking that maybe I can use it to tone my belly but I just don't think that will work by itself. I read about this Ab Flex Belts that I came across earlier when I was searching online the best way to tone a stomach. Maybe I'll be able to achieve that abs that I used to have before if I use this belt with my hula hoops. What it is, is an Electronic Muscle Stimulation that delivers electric impulses to the fibers, which leads to muscle contraction that causes the muscle to strengthen. It uses an electrode pads that are part of the belt which you stick to the skin and give off impulses safely.

I am thinking to give this product a try. I also found a flex belt coupon that could help me ease up the price. And please if you are like me looking for something to tone your belly down, this product might be the answer! Please do visit the link above to get your coupon!

Payment Not Authorized??

I am really upset right now! I just sold an item to this new website that I am selling to, one of my friends on facebook recommended me this site. It's free to list anything and they don't charge either when your item sells. So I thought why not give it a try. So I started listing some stuff two weeks ago or maybe three. Last week, one of my listings which was a Guess watch was sold, so they sent me an email saying that I made my first sale, that the buyer paid them directly and that they stand behind their payment 100%. All that's left for me to do is to ship the item and to make sure that I provide tracking number for my payment to process faster.

Okay, so the next day I shipped it and entered the tracking number to their site. I was pretty sure I was getting my money pretty soon. Two days had passed, no emails about my payment so I sent them an email asking where my payment is. They replied saying that after I enter a valid tracking number I will get my money within 2-3 business days. Okay so I waited again and waited until this week came and still no money! I sent them an email back asking again where the heck my money is, few hours later a replied came telling me that they apologized for the delay and they just found out that the buyer's payment wasn't authorized! WHAT??? I was really shocked to see those words!

What are they talking about not authorized? I thought they confirmed the buyer's payment! And they're telling me not to worry, they're processing my full payment within 1-3 business days! Should I not be worried about it? That's what they told me a week ago! This is just great! Well, I cancelled every listings that I have on their site, they are just not worth it. I will just stick selling on ebay, they may charged money but they are secure and it's guaranteed that I'll get my money there.

Anyway, as you can see I am not revealing the site's name..not yet..If ever I am not getting my money for whatever reason or excuse they'll make up, rest assured I'll be blogging about them and it's not gonna be good! I guarantee you that!

Great Find Yesterday

Yesterday was a busy day for us (me, kids and mother-in-law). We've been going to the church for two days now because we are having an annual sale that will be held tomorrow. For two days, we were pricing the stuff that we are selling and setting them outside for tomorrow's event. I hope we will make money as much as we made last year!

Anyhow, after we did the pricing yesterday, me and my two boys and mother-in-law were heading home when we saw this "Antique Clutter Sales" signs. My mother-in-law and I wanted to check it out, so we stopped. I am just so glad that we decided to stop because I found this set of 12 collectable decorative plates, the price was $4 each but the owner said they're half off, so they're only $2 each, it would have been $24 for the whole set but the owner decided to give it to me for $10! I thought that was so nice of her to do that. I am just so thrilled. 

My purpose of buying the set is to resell it online but I am really hesitating if I want to do that because I really love each one. Such a pretty pictures on those plates! Anyway, here they are below...
