Observant Bird

 I saw this big bird  at Pittsburgh Zoo.  He  was just watching all the  passers by maybe because there is a net on top  and he couldn't go anywhere.  Not sure what kind of bird is this though.  
Thanks for dropping by  folks and for leaving some comments.

Kitchen Accessories

 I bought these mini displays when we were still in Korea.  The two bottles with  toothpicks in it has two compartment, the outer part has   flower petals with oil while the inner one is where the toothpicks are.  
There's plenty of this kind of display in Korea and you can buy them in 1000 won store, a place like a dollar store.

Greens

 My daughter took these shots when we went to Lowe's.  I am not sure what kind of plants are these but she love them.  
We didn't buy it though, we agreed to buy the ones on sale lol.

Orchids and African Violet on Sale

We went to Lowe's the other day and looked for their fresh Pine tree. My husband wanted to have a fresh pine tree for our Christmas tree but I talked him out of it. With the amount that we pay for it and the plastic stand, it is expensive for a one time use of Christmas Tree.

What I found  made my day, the orchids and african violets were on sale for a a dollar each.
I never had any of these two plants before but I am trying my luck since they were on sale.
I bought two of each, let's see if they will survive on my care.
Hubby made me a planter for my plants so now they are not sitting in chairs lol.  Thanks Hon for making  it.
Our wall is full of art exhibits lol and I am not allowed to take it down.
Hope you guys had an enjoyable Thanksgiving feast.  We just got back from  my Fil's home.  Thanks for visiting!

Cute Turkey

Yay, it's turkey day once again.  Gobble, gobble, gobble.  Our  female burrito made this  festive artwork for Thanksgiving Day.  She used her  picture to put in the turkey's head.  Ain't she a cute turkey?

Hope you guys have a nice Thanksgiving Day celebration.  We will be at my FIL's home the whole day tomorrow.  

Yard Sale

Our niece Jen  are in the process of  relocating so she is getting rid of a lot of stuff.  She had a yard sale once  a couple of months ago and we bought this off from her.  I am thinking of making it as a Christmas Candle.  I will redecorate it if I could, put a red bow maybe and some poinsettia.  Let's see if I can create one lol.  Those three candles and candle holders only cost a  buck. 

Circular Motion

Taken at PPG Aquarium in Pittsburgh Zoo.    The fishes above was moving in circular  motion when I took this photo.    I don't know if they were having some kind of parade but it was fun  watching them hehehe.

Experiment

Before my yellow rose  finally died, we made a little experiment, we put  some food color to the   water in the flower vase.  Since the flower is old, it didn't do much colors on the petals but the anthers has colors in them. Some of the petals fell off when I tried to move the vase.
There are some colors on the petals but not much.
I never did this kind  of experiment in school so I didn't know, thanks to hubby for  sharing the idea.
Have a lovely day everyone.

Spider Man Fan

 Our son is definitely a spider man fan.  He has so many spider man  stuff like shirt, hat, and toys.  He would always say that he is the spider man in red (the good guy) and not the bad guy (the one in gray suit).
Alright spider man fanatic, just  tell santa that you want more spider man stuff lol..

Tiny Weeny Burritos

The theme for this week's Mommy Moments is "So Little". I want to share this photos of my burritos when they first w went to Chuck E Cheese.   Our  male burrito is only one year old  when this photo was taken, he's too little to drive but he  tried his best to impress Mr. Chuck which is seated beside him.
Okay, this one doesn't look right but the female burrito is so innocent and excited about giving Chuck a hug.  She was so tiny here.  It's funny to see this picture hehehe.

Silver Dollar City

Branson vacations are the most ideal if your whole family is going for a getaway.  There are so many things to do, a lot of place to go to.  If ever we would be given a chance for a getaway, the Silver Dollar City is one of the place we want to visit.  Below is a picture (taken from the site) of the multi looping roller coaster that hubby and the kids would sure love to try.  I would be able to  try that ride though.  It is one of the most renowned them park attraction in Silver Dollar City.

A Walk with Champ

My husband has been training Champ to walk beside him when he is taking him for a walk. We used to just let him lead the way until we read this article that dogs should walk side by side with you so that they won't establish dominance over you.
It is a bit hard to  take our super hyper Champ for a walk because he would pull and pull until he is ready to pass out.  He is getting better now though.
The photos were taken last week when we brought Champ at my FIL's home for a visit.  My daughter and I took him for a walk around Dad's neighborhood.  Have a good day everyone!

Sleeping Kitty

When we attended Gracie's birthday at Jen's house, I saw their cat sleeping on op of their cabinet.
She's sleeping like a log.
She found the right spot to sleep where no one will bother  her  peaceful nap, unfortunately an intruder like me won't stop from clicking the camera for camera critters hehehe.

Champaroo

Whenever we take Champ  somewhere, he always position himself like this.  He wants to see where we going  and sometimes would give  John a lick lol..  Our little Champaroo has grown up into a fine young male dog.  We call him Champaroo whenever he is being sweet and playful hehehe.

Meal Planner

You might ask, does oral hcg work? Well, the answer to that question can be found at HCG Diet Direct, where science meets nature.  They offer sample meal planner that you can try  in your quest to lose weight.   I showed this to hubby last night because I have noticed that he is gaining weight a lot.  Aside from  lack of work outs, he also  not watching his diet so he is  bulging up.  He said that he might try this ' sample meal planner that  the website has presented.  I need to help him with this as I am the one that prepares our food.  That's one reason why I have been preparing his lunch for school because I don't want him buying it from the a food chain.  At least the one I prepare has fresh lettuce, tomatoes and less fattening ingredients.  Do you prepare your  partner's lunch in going to work?

Sweet Tooth Burrito

 
Here's my sweet tooth burrito  making inventory of the sweet treats  they've got from Trick or Treat.  I hid most of this because some has peanuts and I don't want  to take a risk of him getting allergic reaction from it.  I am glad that our female burrito is not fond of sweets, I guess the male burrito  is like his Dad hehehe.

Backyard Hot Tub

My sister-in-law used to have a jacuzzi or hot tub at her backyard when I first arrived here in the States. I thought that was pretty coll. She got rid of it though after deciding to have a swimming pool instead. I think having a backyard hot tub is something that is cozy that a family would enjoy.  It's not that big so maintenance is  a little  cheaper than having a pool.  Having a back yard hot tub is like having your personal space whenever you want to relax and enjoy the  therapy of  warm water.  This is  really good especially if you come home  from work and would want to  sooth your tired body.    There are different designs of hot tubs that you can check out at Dimension One Spa.  You can request for a free DVD or brochure to learn more about his product by visiting the link provided above.

Shade of Blue

 We went to the store last weekend to buy some things.  
 I fell in love with the shade of blue in the puffy cloudy sky.
 Isn't it gorgeous?
That is why it is always advantageous to bring your camera with you, you never know what's out there for you to shoot.
