Spaceship Earth

Below is the  photo  I took when we had our vacation last year.
I love what this  huge golf-ball like structure has to offer inside.  It was  an exhilarating adventure  to  try the Spaceship Earth attraction.  The kids are asking us when will be our next time to go there, I told them, it's unknown lol.  Unless we play the lottery and win, it would be possible soon hahaha.  The problem is that I don't play it so there is no chance.  But it would really be a great opportunity if we could do it it.

Longing for the Beach


It's been years since we last set our feet to the beach. Our last time was when we had our island hopping in South Korea.  The kids had so much fun building  sand castle and soaking their feet in the seashore.  The place where we live is very far from the ocean so we have  to fly to get there.  I can  honestly tell you that spending in one of the beaches in the topics would be  fantastic. If only we could do magic and  have the things that we need  and go right away, sigh.  But someday soon, who knows we might get a chance to  travel again and  enjoy the sandy and sunny beach.

The Last Song

I watched the 2010 movie "The Last Song" a couple of weeks ago.  Although I am not a fan of Miley Cyrus,  I love the the story of the movie.  It's a tear jerker drama movie centered on a rebellious girl who spent the summer with her Dad in a Southern Beach.  A movie that  focuses on second chances, forgiveness, and family.  It's an old movie and  I am sure that  a loftof you have seen it already but if not, it's a must see.

Below is the  music  "When I look at You" video  by Miley Cyrus.  I  love this song and I think she did a wonderful job singing it.  On acting however, Liam Hemsworth outshines her .  He did an outstanding  acting on this one.  It's believable and so natural unlike Miley.  But that is just my own opinion.


Gift Ideas for Him

If you are looking for the perfect gifts for him, check out the selection at this website that I found.  Usually men are into electronic and other gadgets so you might  find the  best one that your  husband or boyfriend may like.  My husband is very picky when it comes to receiving gifts so   I would always ask him  if he likes a certain product or not.  He is very opinionated so I get him the  gift based from what he tells me about it.   How about you?  Do you surprise  your sweetheart when buying a gift?

Tulips and Gracie

 I was taking photos of these tulips at my FIL and  Ms. Gracie was in the mood  for a photo shoot hehehe.

Flag in the Woods

During our mini nature trek last Holy Saturday, we found this flag in the middle of the woods.  Someone had a  camp fire there and left the flag stuck  in one of the tree branches.
Wishing y'all a happy weekend!

Timing Pulley

We  visited my FIL again tonight but hubby did not able to do the things that  Dad needs help with.  I think he will do it tomorrow.  He has to  fix something from  the gutter of the house.  I don't think he would need a timing pulley but Dad said that he put the things that he needs in the garage.  My FIL has been cleaning his house lately.  He is trying to get rid of stuff that he doesn't need anymore.  I hope that  Dad  will live  a lot longer so the kids can still enjoy his company.  He is turning 90 this year.

Nursing to Nuclear Medicine

When my husband first started going back to college, this was when he was still in active duty in the Navy, he started off with a Nursing course. He was almost done with it, all he need was to to go to a hospital and do his internship. He wasn't able to do that because we got transferred to South Korea.    

When we were there, all he could do was an online  course so he took General Studies and graduated  with Associate of Arts, General Studies.  When we came back here, he enrolled in Nuclear Medicine, he did it for two semesters and he found out that job opportunity on this course was so scarce, so he diverted to Accounting.  He is now  down to  three subjects after this semester, so hopefully he would graduate soon.  
Taken when we  were going down to the hall where the Recgnition ceremony in  his school took place.
He told me that after the summer class, he still have  benefits left from his GI Bill so he wants to use it to get a certification for Medical  coding.  Hubby has so many credits in college now that if he could have took just one course,  he could have a master's degree with all the benefits that he gets from GI Bill.  But I guess it is not too bad to explore of the possibilities, so I support him fully!

Vacation Plans Anyone?

Summer time is here and I bet that most of you are planning for your getaway.  Here's something cool that I found online, some tips and suggestions on where to go for a summer getaway.  You can find deals and other travel packages at the site.  For us, we would not go for a big vacation this year but we still have plans on visiting   places  around the area that we haven't seen yet.  We will keep it local this year because of budget  concern.  How about you?

Little Blogger

Ms. Burrito asked me if she could blog during her Easter break so I let her do it. She enjoyed visiting other blogs and leaving comments.  It takes her forever to finish bloghopping though lol.

Miracle Gro

I wrote some reviews about the Miracle Gro's Expand n' Gro and they sent me these samples.  It was a timing because we were doing some  landscaping at the front lawn so I was able to use them.  Hopefully it will help my newly planted  plants and still praying that we wont get  a surprise frost.  We have been having  cold nights  and I am getting worried that  it would affect my plants but I  hope not.
I will show you the progress we made  this past Easter week about our landscaping project.  It's  not as  beautiful as the professional  landscaper could do but it's cheaper to do it ourselves.

Littlest Petshop

Ms. Burrito is inspired to do good in her class that's why for the second time in a row, she has the most stickers among their class. Her teacher got her the Littlest Petshop as a reward.
It's nice that teachers   give this initiative to reward students who  do good in class, it inspires them to  do even better.

Decorative Easter Eggs

We visited my SIL's home last night and I saw these colorful Easter eggs display at her table.  I couldn't pass the chance not to take a photo hehe.

How to Find the Best Cheap Deals and Holiday Discounts

It’s no secret that the holiday industry is full of great holiday deals and discounts - so whether you’re on a strict budget, you love good deals or if you’re just watching the pennies, you can always find some welcome deals on your next getaway.  When it comes to discount holidays, package tour operators are often the best place to start. You’ll still get all the benefits of an all-in package holiday to a huge range of traditional holiday destinations - with flights, accommodation and resort transfers included - but you can get it at a fraction of the normal price.

Take Thomas Cook holidays for instance. One of the biggest package holiday tour operators in the business, Thomas Cook is a well-established company that’s gives you all the assurances and advantages of a big company - including big discounts when they need to shift their holiday stock. Rather than letting hotel rooms go vacant, tour operators will often slash the cost of their holidays the closer you get to the departure date - meaning you still get the same holiday minus the original price.

The best late deals go to those who are flexible with their holiday criteria. The less particular you are about exact location, local resort, hotel and even your departure airport, the more likely you are to find a real gem of a holiday deal. In addition if you can take holidays off-peak - such as at the start or end of the Summer season or outside of school holidays, you’re more likely to bring the cost down and for those who don’t like crowds, your resort should be quieter too.

On the other hand, you can often find great deals by booking early. They’re not always as impressive as late deals but you can still get a nice chunk off the average cost of your chosen holiday, plus you get the added benefit of choice.
