Mommy & Me - Guilty

I haven't been in the photos with my burritos lately. This is the latest I could find which was taken during my husband and I's wedding anniversary. Can you tell how guilty I am for leaving them at my FIL's home while my husband and I went for a dinner date? LOL, yup, I am not really used to leaving them.

Have a great week ahead friends!

Saying Sorry


My husband once told me that in the military, saying sorry is a sign of weakness and I keep telling him that it might be a sign of weakness but when you're at fault, you have to say and mean it.

We do however say sorry to each other whenever we do something undesirable. For me saying sorry is not sign of weakness but a sign of maturity. Why maturity? Because you are mature enough to admit your mistake. This is my short entry to..

Happy Go Lucky

Two shots that I took of my happy go lucky young lady. These were taken at my FIL's back porch after church. We always go to his house after attending mass.


This would be the last day of my kindergärtner's first week of school. So far she is doing so good. According to her teacher, she is doing excellent! Thanks for making us proud Rye!

These last two shots were also taken in front of MY FIL's house while we were visiting.

Hope everyone is having a nice sunny day.

Framed Sky View

Taking pictures is what keeps me busy whenever we are driving somewhere. I took these shots when we went to Pittsburgh a couple of weeks ago. Pardon for the poor angle of the photos. It is hard to get a good picture when the vehicle is moving, let alone my camera is not that good hehehe.

Have a safe and enjoyable weekend everyone!

Travelling with friends is so much fun. I remember when I first graduated in college, a friend of mine who came from a well-to-do family invited me to their residence in one big province over in Southern Philippines. We mingled with her cousins and other friends and I had a blast out there. It was a fun memory that I had because that was also my first time going to a far place from my home. I miss my friends back home but I have several good friends that I met when I came here in the States which helps me ease away my longing to my former friends.

Super Snouts

Oh Lord, I have been meaning to upload photos I took about the animals in Pittsburgh Zoo but my life is so busy these days. I told my friend that I would take care of her baby when she goes back to work but I don't think I could do it with my schedule, whew!

We actually just got back from the Vet, we brought Champ there to have his leg checked because his cast was coming off already and it was irritating his thigh. Good thing he is healing up already so the Vet removed his cast. He is due for a last xray on Tuesday.
Anyhow, here are the shots I took of the "super Snouts".. Elephants.

It was so hot when we went there last weekend so these giant beauties were dusting off their body.

Do you see him shaking his dust off?
Good thing that they have water to swim too.

We went inside the building where elephant can rest and eat and the place where kids can pet them for $15 fee. We just indulge our eyes watching the elephant and did not bother to pet them, too expensive lol.

I took shot of these humongous teeth of the elephants.

Hope you guys are having a nice weekend!

I am not lucky to have those full front so this kind of bra is a great choice for me.

Linkfromblog Payment

It's been two weeks since I last posted my second payment from Linkfromblog where I earned $67.00 (minus fees) within three days of bidding and writing articles for them. I actually want to withdrew this since last week but there's a bug that was messing up their system so I sent them a message and luckily they fixed it yesterday and I was able to withdrew it.

To be able to get task, you have to bid on their list of projects. You can see it by clicking the "offer" link and from there, you can bid on the project you want to write. Advertisers will offer the lowest amount they could get but you have the option to bid the highest or the maximum amount that they are willing to pay. I always bid on the maximum. Some advertiser will negotiate so it's up to you if you will accept it or decline the offer. I actually received a amount more than of what I have bid for lol. So it is depend on the traffic of your blog, the more traffic, the higher the pay.

I know it isn't that much but a little amount could add up in time. The cool thing that I like about linkfromblog is that. The approval of the task is fast and the moment it is approved, it is available for payment. You don't have to wait for thirty days or so to have been paid. The threshold is a little high but if you write a lot, you get your payment faster.

New Haircut for Hubby

I have been wondering how my husband would look like with a very short hair. He doesn't like it because he said he look horrible. Well, I was surprised when he cut it yesterday just like what I wanted. I helped him trimmed the back part and here it is presenting you my hubby's new hair style. It doesn't look bad right? What do you think?

Thistles and Butterfly

I took these shots during our Panhandle Trail walk a couple of weeks ago. I did not know that this wild plants are called thistles until I saw it in one of the blogs I have visited last week. I only knew thistles in the pixie hollow (Tinkerbel) hahaha. The cartoon picture is so different from the real thistles.

I had so much fun shooting all these especially with the presence of the butterfly!
Thistles are thorny so I was really careful when I was walking to take some photos.
Lovely isn't it? I am so grateful to this butterfly for posing for me, she did not fly when I approached the place hehehe.

If all the subject of the photo shoot is like this beautiful and graceful butterfly, a photographers contentment is full hehehe.

There are so many butterflies this year that I can't get over my addiction in taking pictures of them. Will share some more later on but right now, I better go to bed as its past midnight already lol. Thanks fr dropping by friends! Your valuable comments are greatly appreciated!

The EYE!


My daughter has dark brown eyes like me. I wish that she could have had her Dad's eye color because it's real pretty for a girl. I guess her eyes are cute even though the color is like mine lol. What do you think?

I took these shots yesterday when she was in the mood to make faces in front of the camera. She wanted me to take a picture of her nose but then I focused on her eye lol.

A Blogger's Secret Weapon

As I bloghop a couple of days ago, I've seen a friend posted about a blogger's secret weapon called Blog Copy. So I clicked the link and signed up for a free account. As a blogger who write sponsored posts, I want to make sure that my article does not have the same content as others so the advertisers won't be disappointed.. I have read some blog posts about plagiarism before and being aware of that I want to have a tool to use in order for me to protect the content I write in my articles. If you want to protect your blog's content, try out this blog copy tool.

Cute Body Parts

I used to take photos os my kid's cute body [arts such as arms, egs, chubby cheeks, eyes, and so on when they were babies. But now that they are getting big, taking pictures of them is a little bit harder. I find a baby who is so cute though to photograph with, its our new baby in the family. Can you guess who is this?

Playing Tricks

My son is very hard to photographed these days. I mean, I get excited when he tells me to take a picture of him but when I got the camera and ready for some action, he would intentionally run away from me or act goofy lol.
Look at that, he told me to take a picture of him but then he offered his hand when I snapped the camera hahaha.
Oh well, that's the joy of having a boy lol, can't sit still. You can't even tell him to say cheese because he will say different funny word like "nort" lol.
Hope everyone is having a lovely day.

Stickers, labels, tags, etc.

My son was so tickled when he received two packages of stickers from an online friend of mine. Thanks a lot Mel for making my son happy. There is something magical on stickers that makes most of the kids go gaga lol. I was looking for some affordable address labels as we ran out already of our stock. I found some really neat designs at fricknet.com and pricing are within my budget too.

Sky Rocket Electric Bill

I was so happy when we received our electric bill last month because it was only $68.39. I was like "Alright, it finally went down!" I was dismayed however when I got the bill for this month because it jumped from that amount to $249.61. Oh my gosh, what the heck is going on? It turned out that last month was an estimated reading. I am pissed that they are not reading the actual usage, why do they have to guess of what we actually used. Geez, this makes my blood boiling to the max grrrr.. I just wish that they would do their job and read the meter all the time so we won't have these very low and very high bills.

Branded USB

If you guys are looking for a branded usb, I highly recommend Bespoke website. They offer different kinds of customized products such as pens, lanyards, banner stands, optical mice, alcohol breath testers, and many more. For those who love to drink their coffee while doing their job on the computer, a mug warmer will be a great one. Below is a sample of a pretty mug warmer, isn't it cute? I always forget the coffee I am drinking whenever I a focused with my tasks online so this mug warmer would be a good thing to have on my side hehehe.

Exotic Flower

I find this wild flower very exotic looking. I saw this at Jefferson County Airport when we watch the mini airshow. I love the feel of that airport because it is like a private airport where its not busy, no commercial flight, you know what I mean? I would love to watch it again next year, hopefully our friends will invite us again hehehe.

Scrubs and Beyond

My close friend who is a Licensed Practitioner Nurse or LPN at the hospital here in our area is looking for some new nurse scrubs that would fit her now that she is 7 months pregnant. I thought that when you were pregnant you are excused from wearing your uniform but I was wrong. Of course that was lame of me for thinking that lol.
Cherokee Golden Wings print scoop neck scrub top.
There are so many ways where you can alter your uniform to accommodate your present situation. I think, she hires one of the tailors in downtown to make her a new one. Although I could have suggested the selection of cherokee medical scrubs and the landau medical scrubs at Scrubs and Beyond, I know that she won't listen anyway as she gets discounts from this particular tailor hahaha.
Cherokee Houndstooth print scoop neck scrub top.
Anyhow, looking at the selection of nurse scrubs and other accessories for nurses at Scrubs and Beyond make me wish that hubby could have continued in his nursing degree. He was almost done with it but changed his mind when we came back here from Korea. Whew, men change their minds often too.. not just women lol. But anyhow, if you are looking for some stylish and trendy scrubs, the scrubsandbeyond.com website has it. Check it out guys.

Ducks

I took these shots when we went for a walk at Panhandle Trail. The mother duck has a seven ducklings and she is leading them the way. It's a pleasure to watch them swim and see the family essence in them.
Thanks for dropping by and commenting everyone.

Little Gesture.. Big Love

One thing that I really love the most when we go for a family walk is the flowers I received from my my kids. They might not be the most beautiful flower on earth but those little gestures that they do includes big LOVE which makes Mom's heart melt. Got these from my daughter and hubby when we went for a walk at Panhandle Trail.

Driving Differences

When we were invited by our friends to watch an airshow at Jefferson County Airport, we followed our friend Raquel's vehicle as we did not know how to go there. We were surprised to see how fast Ms. Preggy drives lol. Whenever I am driving, my husband always tease me that I drive like a grandma (very slow). I am scared to speed up hahaha. Me and Raquel have a lot in common but obviously, we have driving differences hahaha.

Opposite Attracts

I am late with my entry but oh well, I would still post this lol. My CPU is still at the computer shop and it won't be back till tomorrow wahhh. The topic this week over at Couple's Corner is Total Opposite. Actually we just have quite a few of this, we pretty much alike in many things.

Blooms in my Garden

Happy Saturday everyone. It's time to enjoy chasing shadows from different blogs in the world.
Here are some of the blooms I had in my garden. Most of these flowers are now gone, I wish that they would bloom the whole summer hehehe.
I have different kinds of lilies but I am not sure what their individual names are.
Thanks once again to Tracy of Hey Harriet for featuring my shadow shot (third photo on the collage below) last week.
