3-in-1 Album

 I got this 3-in-1 album set at Listia for free  and I only paid for the shipping.  I finally got done arranging  the  1k+ copies of photos that I ordered last year.  I only bought two albums that I used but the rest of the albums are from the said site.

Gardening Addict

Two more days to go and January is over.  Here comes the  love-month peeking at us.  I am sure that some of you are already planning what to do on  the special day for   sweethearts.  Some of you might have bought your gifts already or already planned what to buy for your love ones.  As for me, I already bought what I am going to my husband.  It is actually a valentine-birthday present as he celebrates his birthday three days after Valentine's day.  
Have you every tried  ordering flowers online?  My husband  used to do this when I was still in my country and he was in Guam.  He would buy flowers and chocolate online and have it delivered at the school where I work.  It's a pretty sweet thing, it always tickles my heart lol.  But now that I am here and  I have  roses at my garden, no need to buy roses for me anymore unless it is winter where   there is no flower available in my garden.  I became a gardening addict when I came here, being a stay at home mom  gave me  an ample time to  revive what I used to do when I was growing up,  planting   stuff in the garden.  What I love  about gardening here  is that I have  plenty of resources.

Love is in the Air

 My sister-in-law's Toy Fox Terrier, Ruby,   was in heat last week so she  let us keep her for a while so  their male dog won't get her pregnant.  Our Jack Russel Terrier, Champ, is already fixed so  she is safe.
 Love  was in the air with these two hahaha.  Ruby went home  today and we got  our new baby, Maximus.  Will show him to you next time.
 Champ "Am I suppose to do something?" Lol!
Good night everyone.

Day to Day Basis

It is only possible to live happily ever after on a day to day basis.
Photos were taken   a couple of weeks ago when we went to Steubenville Ohio.

Piles of Boxes

When my husband was still in the Navy, we moved constantly so we saved all the boxes from the products that we bought so that  when we move again, we can still use the original boxes.  Now that he is done,  we are getting  rid of all of them.  I emptied our seller from those piles of boxes and   store most of our unused stuff there.
Speaking of boxes,  I remember the big  shoe store  in Ohio,  they do not have wooden  shelves for their display but   they used their empty boxes to make shelves.  It was pretty neat, too bad, I wasn't able to  take a photo of it. Next time when we go there, I would try to take a shot so you can see.

Stillness of the Water

Just one of the thousands photos I took when we went to Disney World last year.  I love the stillness of the water.


Our planned project for this year includes turning our dining room into an additional bedroom. We still need to save for it but that is what our goal is for this year. The kids are getting big and they would both need to have their own separate bedroom. We have to save to buy the materials we would need to renovate it and we also have to buy another set of bedroom furniture.

Alabaster Finish
I am so glad that my father in law gave us one bedroom set when we first moved in here. My husband said that one of his Aunt gave his parents that set and his Mom told him that whatever is in his bedroom when he was a kid would be his when he move out. That's why Dad gave it to us when we bought our house, which is very nice because it saves some money.

Anyhow, the selection of Drexel Heritage over at Savannah Collections are gorgeous. I have never seen one Drexel Heritage in the furniture store near our area so I was amazed by their selection. Savannah Collection also has some beautiful collection of Henredon. As I browsed the website, I came to realize that there so much to see when it comes to furniture.

Of all their selection, the Hatfield living room collection is my all time favorite. The set includes an arm chair, a love seat, and a three seater sofa. The original price is more than five grand but it is on sale for $1,878 right now. These items comes with a free standard shipping so that is a huge saving already. So if you want to find classic, modern, or contemporary kind of furniture, just visit any of the link above. They have bountiful and beautiful selection of any type of furniture.

Have a great week everyone!

This is the attraction in Hollywood Studios that we thought was a waste of time.  We've waited for a long time in a long line but  what's inside was a showing of  an old movie, Narnia.. nothing really exciting.  We thought that there is something unique inside, oh well at least we know now.
Ruby Tuesday 2


My burritos removed the string of the balloons after the party. They love to jump and reach it.  Then after the jumping fun, they open up the ballon and inhale the helium inside it which made them talk like a chipmunk!

Colorful Pens

I bought these colorful pens from the extra gift code that I had left from CSN last year. CSN is now called WayFair, I am kinda sad that the management changed. With CSN, I get to review products which gave me opportunities to buy products with the gift codes they gave me in return of a review. I actually accumulated different stuff from them including a book case, mixer, dog crate, hunting boots for hubs, educational toys for the kids, and a lot more.
Ms. Burrito love using this in writing her daily journal.   Link  with me every Friday through Color Connection.  You can post any color that you like.

The Beauty of Bare Trees

Trees during winter represents sadness to me due to lack of color, however, it still adds a beauty to a gloomy and cloudy sky.

It's  so nice to look at  a very serene  scene like this.  The photo was taken in Magic Kingdom, Disney World.

During the first snow fall here in our area, the kids were so excited. It was so cold but they don't care, thay want to go out and have fun. We went to my FIL's home and let them sled ride but the snow was not a good one for sled riding.
Since they did not have much fun with their sled ride, they made snow angels even if the snow  wasn't thick enough.
Come and join the fun as we kick on to the new batch of ABC Wednesday, round 10 .

Sponge Bob

We were surprise about a package that came to our doorstep yesterday. It's a set of lunch bag and wallet with Sponge Bob design. Of course it tickled our celebrant's heart.  We were puzzled to whose the sender is because we don't know anyone by that name.  
I posted the photos in FB and found out that the package was from our  friend  from Texas.  Not sure how is she related  to the sender bu thank you to the Dias Family!

The Eye that says it ALL!

I bought two more albums at Walmart and filled it with pictures. I still have more pictures left though. I am waiting for the three albums that I won at Listia so I can finish it. My goal was to finish it last year but with so many activities, I wasn't able to.
Do you recognize the eye?  It's the eye that says it all.

Chuck e Cheese

First of all I want to thank everyone who visited my shadow shot last week.  Thanks also to those who  answered my question about my entry.  This looks like Mickey, in fact the folder of my photos is called mickey lol.
But, here is the  source of  the shadow, it's Chuck e Cheese mini pizza maker.

 My FIL has this battery-operated massager  which Mr. Burrito love to play with.  It's a nice  little thing to massage your back or sore muscles but  the sound triggers my migraine all the time wahhh.  But for the sake of my son's happiness, I'll take the migraine.

Nearsighted Condition

My sense of  smell is very strong but my vision isn't.  If I  would be given a choice, I would rather have a good vision than a  strong sense of smell so I don't have  to smell my   sweetheart's not-so-pleasant  fart lol.  Peace hon!  But seriously, I'd rather see things than smell them.  But there's nothing I can do as it is  what's given to me so I might as well utilize it.  I started  wearing an eyeglasses when I was 17 years old.  I have a condition called nearsightedness.  As I age, it's getting worse.  Everything  in a far distance is  so blurry to me.  That's why when we go places, I wear my eyeglasses.  The reason I don't wear them  more often than I should is that it gives me migraine.  

I think, it is time for me to get a new pair of eyeglasses so I could see  better  when my  husband is far away lol.  Sometimes when we go to the store and I get  separated from them, it's hard for me to  find him when I don't have my eyeglasses.  The selection of Valentine’s Day glasses at Zenni  are very fashionable and the price is unbeatable.    I really have to put this on my list so I won't forget.   Better yet, I would let my sweetheart handle this for me, he's better   on this than me lol.

Small World

Just one of the snap shots I took  at Small World attraction in Disney World.  One of my favorites during our adventure in Disney, it was relaxing and the song reminds me of  my elementary grades  lol.

Playing with the Wind

My daughter got a set of four boxes of 500-piece puzzle by Simple Times for Christmas. This kind of puzzle is not really for kids of her age because they're very small, so it is hard to build it. Hubby and I helped her complete one.
This one that we did is called "Playing with the Wind."  We started  with completing the boarders first.
I must admit, it was tough  completing it, I think my eye sight went ZigZag on this  one..  I stayed at home one day when hubby and kids went to my FIL and I worked on this baby for hours.  When  they came back, hubby helped me finish it.
One down and three more to go lol.  I have been looking for 19x14  frame but couldn't find one in the store. I want to put all of them in an individual  frames and use  it as  wall decor at our basement.
