She is ready to go shopping

I bought this Hello Kitty outfit for my little girl last month. I plan to let her wear the outfit when she goes to school this September. The purse she is carrying is from her 5th birthday given by my friend. It is a pink bag and it is a designer bag. I think she is a lucky girl to receive this purse as a gift on her birthday. 

She is ready to go shopping

I was in the kitchen doing something I forgot. She told me and said that she is ready to go shopping. I told her to stay where she is and will take a picture of her. I think he looks cute especially when she said she is ready to go shopping.

She is indeed my shopping partner. She brings this purse once in while when we go shopping. How about you? Is your little girl your shopping partner too?

Happy Father’s Day to the coolest dude that I love and always will

How was your Father’s Day? I hope that you had a wonderful time spending it with your Dad or your family yesterday. We did not do special yesterday. My husband opened gifts from his daughters. I did not gave him anything. I did cooked breakfast for him. 

Writing things to do for Daddy on Father's Day
We were home yesterday. We checked the telephone company if they cider woods for our fireplace. My husband cut some. We split it when went home. I helped my husband split the logs with the log splitter. I also helped him stack the wood in the garage. We can use it during the fall. We also checked my husband’s friend that has the wood in his property. Unfortunately, he was not around and we headed home. We went back to his friend’s house and he showed us his woods. They are all hard wood and I do not know if my husband will want them.

Fishing on Father's Day
Father and son played golf. The girls just watched them play. They went swimming. They went fishing n the afternoon. These are our pictures of how we spent the Father’s Day. I cooked noodles to wish him long life to spend more Father’s Day with us.

The coolest dude that I love and always will
How about you? How did you spent your Father’s Day? I am linking this entry to #165 of 365 blog photo challenge.

Breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day

My little girl handed me this bag on Mother’s Day. It says breakfast in bed. She made this in school and bring it home last Friday. She keeps it a secret. My husband, my son and her only know this bag. The little girl woke up late because she slept late that Friday night.

What a sweet girl she is. She said that I do not need to cook. All I need is sit down and she sits the counter for me. I open the bag and there is an orange, pop tarts and an apple juice bag. I slice the oranges and put the pop tarts in the toaster. I am glad that I cook rice early. My kids love to eat rice in the morning. I ask my kids what they want to eat for breakfast. They said they want rice, noodles and egg. I boil some water and fried eggs for them. We ate all together.

It is awesome that I do not need to cook my breakfast. I shared the pop tarts to my little girl. She likes it too. We had a wonderful time eating breakfast. Being a mother to these two crazy and fun kids will not trade for anything else. I love these two rugrats in the world.

How about you? How was breakfast during your Mother’s Day?

Roll dice that will help you spice up your intimacy

I remember those days just husband and I and no kids involve. Those are the fun days and moments we have as a couple. Intimacy is just awesome. I really miss those intimate moments we had. Now that we are having two kids, finding the perfect moment to be intimate is not easy. My husband has a crazy schedule at work. He needs his sleep the most as his job is very critical. We seldom see each other because of his work schedules. I am dead tired after taking care of the kids and all the household chores. All I need is my sleep.

I found this roll dice in our neighborhood pharmacy in the clearance section. This is perfect for Valentines day. You can it too with normal occasions. These dice have the cutest messages that will help me and my husband spice up our intimacy. The messages are really cute, fun and flirty. How I wish that we can play this together and enjoy the moment with each other.

How about you? Do you like to play fun and flirty games with your husband? How do you spice up your intimacy?

Day 05- A picture of somewhere you have been to

There is no place in the world that I rather be now except in the Philippines particularly in my home town, Cagayan de Oro City. I left my heart in Cagayan de Oro City. There is no place like home.

GOD is so great that HE allowed me and my daughter to visit the Philippines. I am not really looking forward for a very long flight. I am thankful that despite of the delayed and canceled of our flights; we arrived safely back home to New York. I spent most of the time with my Mom who I did not see for six (6) long years. I did not visit beautiful tourist spots but I did spend my precious time with the most important person in my life which is my Mom. I am sorry to my friends that I did not spend more time with them. I hope that you forgive me. I will let the pictures describe it for you. Please forgive me for uploading many pictures.

I never forget the moment that I am looking down at my home town, Cagayan de Oro City, up in the air.

Victoria’s Secret gift cards that I received on my birthday

Christmas is my birthday. I am very lucky to share my birthday to those who believe in the spirit of Christmas. I remember growing up; Christmas is the best holiday for me until now still is. I might not have a grand birthday growing up. I am still very happy that people are celebrating Christmas with joy and laughter.

I remember that I only get to buy new clothes during my birthday. My Dad received an extra salary during Christmas. He gives each kid $25 to spend. This is the only way that I can buy new clothes for myself. I am still thankful for that. I missed my Dad so very much. It has been eight (8) years since the last time I saw him. He is in heaven now watching his kids and grandkids growing up.

Now that I live in America, I received gifts on my birthday. I prepare celebrating Christmas with my kids. My husband always gives me something on my birthday so as my parent’s-in-law. My husband and my Mom gave me Victoria’s Secret gift cards. I want to say thank you to my husband and to my Mom. They both know my guilty pleasure. My husband gave me a $100 while my Mom gave me a $50. I used the two gift cards yesterday online.

What about you? Do you like to receive gift card on your birthday? Do you prepare cash?
