Pop Corn

Pop..pop...pop.. pop.. Popcorn, one of the favorite snacks in theaters. I for one like pop corn, how about you?
We bought a bag of Trail End classic caramel coated pop corn from our neighbor's grandson a few  weeks back.  It was extra crunchy and delicious.  My son likes pop corn when it has a touch of cheese but I like it  with caramel or even just plain.
Thanks for visiting folks.  I am  at school and will visit back as soon as I can.

Where Will Your Next Vacation Be?

Are you the type of person that works all day dreaming of those two or three weeks out of the year when you get to take a much needed vacation? Don't worry if you are because you are not alone. There are millions of other people who feel the exact same way as you do. This is something that you deserve. In fact, this is something that everyone deserves every once in a while. There is nothing quite like a good vacation to leave you feeling fresh and new again.

 Where Should You Go?

This can be the most difficult thing to determine about a vacation. There are so many great places to go. How in the world are you supposed to pick just one of them? There are some places that are always extremely popular. Take Florida vacation packages for instance. This is a very popular vacation topic because Florida has so much to offer everyone. 

 The state is surrounded on three sides by beautiful ocean waters that are just begging you for a swim. In the middle of Florida there are also plenty of great attractions as well. There are over five world famous theme parks, and they are located in central Florida. Maybe you can spend a few days at a theme park, and then head out to the beach for a few more days. This is a very common way for people to spend their vacations while they are in the sunshine state. The only problem that you will have while you are visiting Florida is trying to split your time up evenly among all of the great places. You will most likely have the same problem that other people have and that is finding out that your vacation was too short. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to take in everything that Florida has to offer.

You Blue It!

The kids had an exchange gift at their  respective classes during  their Christmas parties.  Ms. Burrito's Secret Pal gave her this nickelodeon's Gak.  When you open the lid, it has sticky clay-like  inside.  My daughter only  played with this once and I got rid of it because it is very messy.  She  drop some at our carpet and I had a hard time cleaning it as she did not tell me about it right away.  Her blouse also got stained so I wasn't very happy

The saying "You BLUE it!" fits perfectly it's description because you will BLUE the fun of having it.
I don't recommend this for kids.

Save Money When You Buy Your Flight Tickets

HotelsWith how the economy is nowadays, people are still trying to save as much money as possible so they can live comfortably.

Do Your Research

You already know that there are many websites that claim they have the cheapest plane tickets. However, this is often not the case, but they want you to believe they have the lowest prices. You need to do your research if you want to save money when you are planning your vacation. You should check out several websites to see how much the plane tickets cost and then choose the ones that fit your price range and flight schedule.

Choosing Your Flight

When you are searching through the many flights that lead to your vacation destination, you should determine how many stops or layovers you will want to endure. There are plane tickets that are cheaper because there are multiple stops and you will need to switch planes a few times. If you don’t want to spend all day in multiple airports before you reach your destination, you may want to consider these flights when you click here. You can choose flights that will fly nonstop to your destination, and you’ll be able to enjoy more of your vacation on a beach than in an airport. You can also book your tickets months in advance, as they are usually cheaper than if you buy them last minute.

Paper Roses


 My daughter has fully recovered from the bug that she caught early this week.  She was absent for three days in school.  She tried to go to school yesterday but called me back after thirty minutes  telling me to get her.  I told her  that she need to rest another day yesterday but she really wants to go so I let her.  She's  the total opposite of my little boy, the latter does not want to go but she wants to even if she's sick.  But anyhow, she is  back to school now.  Thanks for the well wishes!
She made this yesterday out of boredom   She watched the video on youtube on how to make paper  roses and this is what she came out with.

Professional Rug Cleaner

Having a carpeted home is  nice especially if you have kids as it protects their  knees and body when they fall while playing or running around.  The key to having a healthy and clean carpet is to   steam clean t it every once in a while.  When we bought our house, we  removed the old existing carpet  and replaced it with a brand new one.    We also bought a steam vac to clean it ourselves as we can't afford to  hire a professional rug cleaner.  Now that we have two children and two dogs, we   make sure to clean our carpet every so often because if  we don't, it would be filthy.  One of our dogs sheds so I vacuum it  once or twice a week and hubby takes care of the steaming.  

Of course I ca do this stuff because I am a stay at home mom, those who  goes to work everyday has very little time to do it so a professional rug cleaner would be preferable  At ABC Rug and Carpet Care, is a New York based  company that provides  carpet cleaning and care.  So if you are  around the said place, you can check them out.

Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders Photo Opp


My husband and daughter had the chance to see and meet the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders when we were still  living in South Korea.  They came to the Navy Fleet  to give some cheers to the  service men and women and their families who were currently stationed in the  Land of the morning Calm.  I was not able to see their performance because my son was taking a  a nap that time but glad that my daughter had the chance to meet them.  When my daughter  came home, she sowed me some moves   according to the performace of the ladies that she saw.  It added  a magical memory for my daughter.  She had  a great time  posing for pictures with them. Below are some of the photos that my husband took.

Dallas Cowboys Authentic Cheerleader Set With Brittany Evans... 


I was browsing  some clothes online and found some Dallas Cowboys Baby Clothes at Baby Fans.  I think that any baby girl would look  beautiful with  the  outfit that  you see.  Too bad, the biggest size that they have is 3T which is not my daughter's size anymore.  It could have been a good keepsakes that my daughter could look back when she sees her pictures with the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders..

Mary Poppins

Are you planning to have a getaway anytime soon?  Would you consider going to New York and  watch one of the Broadway shows?  You can find broadway show packages at NYC Trip website.  It's never  early to plan for a getaway for summer or  for Spring vacation.  I have never experience watching a broadway show but it would be   fun to do that someday.  It would be  awesome to see the Mary Poppins  in an actual show, I  only saw it  on TV when I was in my early teens.  I looked up their  pricing and it cost $306.50 per person which isn't bad because it comes with a 2 night complete package.  The package includes  a two-night stay in Time Square or Rockefeller Center, these are the hotels in the heart of midtown Manhattan famed Broadway Theater District.  All state and local  taxes are also included in the price.  

Mary Poppins brought back memories  when we  visited  Disney World   a couple of years ago.  We  explored the Spectacular Journey into the Movies attraction where you go for a ride and the  tour guide will tell you different  kinds of movies as   the journey move along.     One of the display is about the Mary Poppins show and it brought back  fun memories when I first watch the movie.

Rainy Days

Hello there, how's the weather at your side of world? It's raining here now which makes it more colder outside. It says on the weather channel that it would pour hard around 2 pm which is bad because I have to pick up my Burritos in school. I will definitely need our umbrellas.
I took the shots below when I walked my  kids to school one fine  but cold morning sometime last month.  The sun was actually brighter than the ones showing in the photo but that's the best my point and shoot camera could capture.
I hope that you are having a great weekend.

Reward System

I did a reward system for my Burritos last year and it certainly went well. Every good deed and sweet gesture were rewarded. Some would say that this is isn't effective because it is like a form of bribe but for me it is not.  It's my way of teaching my kids that in every action you make in life, there is always consequences to it, either good or bad.  
This year, we start anew.  For every sticker that they receive, they get 10 cents for each.  It isn't much   but if they are zealous enough in helping around the house and continue to do good in school , they will accumulate a lot.  I gave them the choice to  spend their earnings  last month but they chose to  put it in their savings, their "Adult Money" as Ms. Burrito refers to.  This is a fun reward system  for my kids, you might want to try it too.

Dishwasher Parts

I used to   wash our dishes manually and only uses it   when we have an occasion where I have to use so many dishes.    I decided to give my hands a break and  finally use our  dishwasher regularly.    I think I am finally getting the worth of the money that I paid for for this dishwasher lol.  I ca  put this baby to test if  how long it will last.  I don't think I would need frigidaire dishwasher parts soon as this is relatively new but let us see.  I am just glad to know that there is  a specific website where you can buy  Frigidaire dishwasher parts.  

On the other note, we met up with our real estate agent yesterday and looked at one house that was newly listed  at their website.  The house is only  five years old  and it has  1.4  acres of land  which we realy liked because there is  a large yard for the kids and our pets to run around to.  The owner is also leaving all their appliances and  window treatments and the most surprising part is the price that they listed it to, it's very low. The owner  really wants to sell it fast.  I mean I like the house, it's floor plan, and the land but I don't like fact that it is far from my  children's school.  So even if we like it, we are not going to bid on it.

William-Sonoma Giftcard

Last month, I entered a giveaway from a friend of mine's blog. I luckily won a coupon of free Mrs. Smith's pie which I haven't redeem yet, and a $50  William Sonoma gift card.  Thanks Amy for hosting the giveaway!  
Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker with Extra Freezer BowlWe used the  gift card to buy  an Ice cream machine similar to the  one shown on the photo below (photo isn't mine).  My husband and kids love ice cream so we figured that  we can make our own if we are craving for some ice cream.

Social Clerks

As a blogger, it is important to have social  media accounts such as Facebook and Twitter especially if you are doing sponsored posts.  Advertisers look for those bloggers that have  a lot of media exposures so they their ads that you write on your blog will get enough exposure.  Say for instance, my blog posts, all of it automatically  shared through my Twitter, Facebook, and  Google+ account, hence  the exposure is tripled.  Right now, I have 5,122 followers  but I want  more because the more followers you have, the more readers you have for your tweets.  

Did you know that you can  Buy Tweets at Social Clerks?  There are twitter users who are willing to post tweets in your behalf for very reasonable prices.  You can also  get more Facebook likes, youtube vies, Google plus followers and more.  So if your  company is in need of  social media exposures, try visiting the  site I have mentioned through the links provided above.  They can get you  the much exposure that you need through their systematic programs.  But if you want a much affordable price, you can just contact me in any of my blogs, wink (kidding).  Seriously though, social media is a great way to  connect with consumers  so  to boost your business with much exposure, try Social Clerks.
