Sack Race

 The Burritos playing sack race at our living room.  Our dog Champ decided to join and accidentally bit Mr. Burrito on the leg.  It ruined the fun.
Happy weekend.

Beautiful Weekend

We have a bright day today, still cold but the sun is shining just like last weekend when took this photo.

Gnomeo & Juliet

One of my children's favorite movie is the Gnomeo and Juliet. This animated tale knowingly follows the quintessential star-crossed lovers tragedy Romeo and Juliet, with the unexpected twist of making the characters garden gnomes that can move when human beings aren't watching.
I definitely recommend this  movie, it's a fun-filled   movie with lots of lessons to learn for small kids.

Little Fashionista

One of my daughter's  favorite game at home is dressing up.  She love to explore  the   fashion world in her own way.  One of her favorite accessories is hat.  Sometimes, my husband and I would  laugh because she would come up with different styles of her own.  She has a stack of toddler hats that I  keep in the closet and once in a while she would take those out and mix -n-match it with dresses and shoes.
Would you like to see  beautiful baby hats for girls?  I found this online and thought  that if I have another girl, it would be so much fun.  I am sure that my daughter would love to dress up her sister.. wink.  She actually asked us to  have another baby again but it has to be a girl so she could have a sister lol.  Check out the best baby hats that my little girl used to wear when she was younger.  Most of it were made by my sister in law who is very creative in making stuff.  

Foamy Bug

Our neighbor gave this to Mas. Burrito. They made it out of the left over spray insulation foam material.  We call her Ms. Foamy Bug.
Thanks Don and Ruth, you guys rock!

Music Downloads

My husband and I just recently hooked in watching the  TV show called "The Voice."  Have  you ever watch that show?  I think that this show started last year but I never really paid attention to it till this year.  Last night was the last blind audition  and all the four coaches which includes Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Adam Levne of Marron 5, and Cee Lo Green have selected and completed their  team of twelve.   This would be my first time to watch this show so I dunno how do they eliminate contestant and how they  determine  whose team wins.  But let us see  what  will I find out by watching it this season.  

So far, we enjoy how the show works.  I think that Blake and Adam has really good artists in their team.  It said on the report that team Adam won last year and  I am excited to see who will win this year.  All of the performances during the  blind auditions are available for    music downloads so if you ever miss  the performance of those  artists that you like, you can still listen and watch it by downloading it online.  What I like about this  show is that most of the  contestants are really talented so it is like  a battle of   great performers  who never get a  chance to stardom.  The Voice is a great opportunity for them to   shine and be recognized.

I love that you would  see different performances of  great songs from popular artists like Lady Gaga, Amy Winehouse,  and other  artists in the music industry.  It's funny to watch the  coaches  when they are battling or trying to sell  their speeches to the contestants.  Oh that is one more thing that I like about The Voice, the contestants have the power to choose  who they want to be their coach as long as  the chair of these coaches turn around and  invited the contestant to their team.  There are some who audition that I think should have made the coaches team but  they  were not able to   spark the interest of the four coaches.

Do you have a specific artist that you  are very fond of?  I think that young generation like Pink, Katy Perry,  Bruno Mars, Selena Gomez, and more.  I am a big fan of Celine Dion, ABBA, The Carpenters, and many other great performers from yesteryear.  My kind of music is inspired  by my mother who love to sing when I was growing up.  I used to listen to her when she would  listen to the Sunday music on the radio and would sing with it.  Oh those were the days.

Nail Files

glass nail filesI am not really  fond of going to  a salon and have my nails  done with other  people.  For me, it's a personal thing that you must do for yourself.   But that's  from a point of  view of an economist like me hehehe.  If you can afford it and you don't feel like doing it yourself, why not pay someone else to do it for you.  But anyhow, when I came here, I actually  brought with me my cleaning kits for my nails.  I was surprised that it passed through the airport inspection, I thought for sure that they will detect it and confiscate it but  I was lucky.  That's what I used in cleaning my nails and of my daughter's nails.  As I have said, I don't go to salon for  nails services.  It is cheaper to do it myself.  I found these   neat looking glass nail files online and thought that they are quite unique and trendy.  This is  kinda  cute to give as a gift.  You may check it out at the website by  visiting the  link provided above.  They  actually have   a good selection of it with different styles and designs.  This reminds  me of the gift set that my daughter got  last Christmas, the nail files have Disney princess designs which she likes very much.

Coo Coo (Cuckoo) Clock

An old wall clock at my father-in-law's basement.  I believe this  makes  bird sound "Coo Coo" and the bird comes out. It's not working now though, somebody busted it.

Personal Loans

I bet most  people who got done filing taxes  are still waiting for their  refunds.  Personal Loans can help you get the quick cash that you need while still waiting for your   tax return (if there's any).    It is so nice that there are companies that offer those kinds of loans.  You just need to look for the  lower interest rates.

Blurred Image

One day, my daughter used my DSLR camera and the next day that I used it, it was blurry. I got worried so I read the manual to know what went wrong and I think she accidentally changed the setting of the auto focus. This is one of the shots that I took when I didn't know what was wrong yet.

How to plan for your family's Easter Holiday

Anyone who has planned a holiday gathering for fiends and family can safely tell you that it is no small feat. There is quite a lot of planning and catering to everyone that must take place in order to make the family event as successful as possible. There is also a lot of planning that is involved in getting together with relatives, whether they live down the street from you or father away. There is also a lot of work that is needed in order to prepare your home, or the home of anyone who has decided to host guests over the holidays.

One of the most popular of these holidays is of course, the Christmas season. Another of the most popular holidays that is currently celebrated are the Easter holidays. It is not only a time for brightly colored clothing, and warm weather but it is also a time for families to be able to get together and spend time with one another. Most families, with as much time that they spend apart from each other it is difficult for families to spend as much time with each other as they would wish to. 

In order to spend more time with each other, many companies and schools allow people the day off in order to spend time with their families. In addition, there are also many different parts of the holiday that are celebrated. There are Easter egg hunts that are put on by the different neighborhoods and communities. There is also the traditional visit to the Easter bunny, as well as the Easter baskets that are given to the children every year. These gifts are typically kept from the children until the holiday much the same way that we are resigned to wait before opening Christmas presents.

Easter gift baskets for kids are some of the most popular things to give during this season. They are usually filled with different kinds of candy and other sweet things like Easter bunnies that are made from chocolate. These gift baskets may also be filled with things like small toys or even books according to the interests of the child that they are meant for. In the case of most children it typically does not matter what the baskets include they are both easily amused as well as easily pleased. 

There are also different methods by which you can create these Easter gift baskets for kids whether you choose to look online for a how to guide or you choose to follow different advice that you may have been given through the different magazines and things like that. If you decide that you need some assistance with creating these gift baskets you may also find it helpful to enlist the help of a friend or relative in order to get the opinion of a third party. 
 Whether you are planning to host guests for Christmas or for Easter it is important to not overload yourself with too much work. Becoming overloaded with your schedule can cause stress that is unnecessary.

Under the Shadow

"Do we not all spend the greater part of our lives 
under the shadow of an event that has not yet come to pass?"

Have a good weekend everyone!

Cloud Storage

Have you ever heard of  the cloud storage?  It's  one way of backing up your files and  having an access to it anywhere you go.  Why buy  expensive storage   gadget if you can get a free cloud storage?  Hubby recently  created an account  to a website similar to this one where he can store all his  school data and stuff.  Then he recently discover a free  software from Google where you can do the same.  He told me that  with Google, he can share   his document to anyone, edit it at the same time, and many other cool features.  

Well guess what, not only Google has that  feature.  Just cloud offer their services for free  for you to use.  You can store your data at Just cloud, their  program is  simple, fast, and unlimited.  You can check it out by visiting the link I have provided above.   This is great especially if your computer is as old  as mine and you have that feeling that any time soon, it's going to crash.  When you store your data at Just Cloud storage, you  are ensured that you have a back files that you can open  anytime and anywhere in the world.

Lovely Erasers

We bought these lovely erasers at the store for Ms. Burrito.  A small token of our love and  appreciation of her   hardwork in  keeping  her good grades.  We love you Anak!

Adjustable Dining Tables

When we bought our dining room set, the  major attraction was the dining table because  it can be   shorten  or make it  longer. I think that most of the large dining room tables nowadays are adjustable in length.  I noticed that when we were   looking at different  dining  tables  a few years back.  I like this kind of dining tables because  you can   make it shorter or longer depending on the size of the room or size of the  family members that would be using it.

Car Issues

My husband misses  his brother who passed  away months ago.  When it comes  to car issues, my BIL   was really good at it and my husband would always asked him about stuff, say for instance  a  Tube Bending.  Now that he's gone, hubby find himself  browsing the net for answers to his  questions.  Sometimes he gets frustrated when he can't find the right  one that he's looking for.  The good thing is, there are  so many  online stores that you can browse and compare prices with.

Our Bunny Wubzy

During Winter, our bunny, Wubzy, stays in our house. We let him stay at the basement using his cage. During day time, we let him run around and his favorite hang out place is the gym area.
He is not aloof anymore, he come to us whenever we go at the basement or he goes up when we leave our door open upstairs.  Today, I think he got threatened by our son and he nipped him a little bit.  It wasn't bad which I am thankful because he never had a rabies shot.

Emergency Assistance Cry

Last Friday morning while I was  busy preparing   lunch for my husband,  breakfast for my kids,  and  walked my daughter to school, an   email hacker  invaded my  privacy through my email.  They hacked my email account  and used it for two  hours to send  a scam email to all of my contacts  asking for money.  One of my friends from Japan  replied  to the said email and the  hacker immediately replied.  

"Am glad you replied back,we missed our return flight and was unable to access the internet until now, I have nothing left on me right now and I am lucky to have my life and passports with me it would have been worst if they had made away with my passports. Well all I need now is just $1,550 you can have it wired to my name via Western Union I'll have to show my passport as ID to pick it up here and i promise to pay you back as soon as I get back home.Here's my info below:

Name: Rose Cottrill
Location: 63 Cannon Street
London, EC4N 5AA, UK

As soon as it is done, kindly get back to me with the Western Union Confirmation Number. Let me know if you are heading to the WU outlet now???"

After resolving the problem that I had with my email, I  dug deeper of who is living in the said address and here's what I found.  It's a business establishment called "The Center".

Front view The Centre
63  Cannon StreetLeet Street, St Paul's
  • Telephone:  020 7248 4190
  • Fax: 020 7248 4190

There are two individuals who are doing this kind of awful thing.  One is from Nigeria, he was doing the cracking  of your password and doing all the emails thing and the second one is the one  who works in London who collects the money if ever  someone fall for their scam.

I was deeply troubled with this  unfortunate event because even our emails  which is supposed to be protected with password is being invaded by criminals.  I got so many calls and emails  from friends and family asking me if  the  message they receive was true.  Good thing, I immediately  changed my log in info as soon as I noticed the  very suspicious set up in my email when I logged in.  I know right there and then that my account was compromised and I was right.

For those who receive this emergency assistance cry  from my email, please just delete it.  Don't entertain these   scumbags who lures people  of their  scams.

Jenifer Aniston turns 43

Valentines and Roses

 Valentine's Day reminds me of South Korea because of the  flowers that I  have frozen over time that we were there.  The house  that we live in inside the base   supplied us with a huge freezer which gave me  a lot of space to store these beauties.  Unfortunately, I had to threw them away when we had to leave.
 Now I learned my lesson, I don't freeze flowers anymore but I dried them.  They may not look as fresh as the frozen ones but at least I can keep them for long.
Thanks for leaving your  comment.

Babies 'N Bellies

No, I am not pregnant, if that is what you are thinking at the moment lol.  I kinda miss wearing maternity clothes and not only that, I also  miss  the times when my kids are still babies.  The sweet bonding  that I had with my babies when I nursed them is absolutely precious.  But anyhow, if you are looking for  fashionable  maternity dresses and  other type of maternity clothing,  there so many of it to to choose from at Babies N' Belies.

Travel Overseas

When we were  living overseas, I was always thinking of  coming back home but now that we're finally here, I realized that I miss it there.  I miss the travel s and  all that fun stuff that we did like  hiking and island hopping.  But I am always optimistic,  we might get lucky someday and   get a chance to travel the world hehehe.  I might wake up one day looking for a Cheap Car Hire Malta or somewhere in Europe.  That would be a dream come true.  Oh boy, I am dreaming again.. grins.

Dolce & Gabbana

I wasn't able to do anything online today. My PC keep hanging up (Google Crashes)  so I ran my defraggler and it is now just finished.  It gave me a good bit of space after the process which also fixed the crashing of my browser.  Do you do defragging
Anyhow, here are some of my D stuff in my dresser.  The  Delicate  Petals along with a Love Spell lotion from Victoria's Secret that  our very good neighbors gave me.  Hubby also  gave me a set of Victoria Secret's  perfume and  one of it's scent is the Desire.  
A testing company sent me this bottle of Dolce & Gabbana  perfume for evaluation.  I liked it.

Mary Poppins

Do you remember the Mary Poppins show? I was able to watched this when I was in high school already. We did not have TV growing up so when I went to High School and the owner of the house where I live has one, it gave me a chance to see things that I missed lol.
Going into the Spectacular  Journey into the Movies  was fun for me,  it reminded  me of  some of the scene I've seen in the past.  Disney World is so much fun but in order to see each attraction, you will have to do your vacation for the whole month I guess lol.

Miniature Chefs

These photos were taken during Mr. Burrito's birthday party last month. These two cute angels, Gracie and Bumble Bee, were busy "cooking" at Ms. Burrito's kitchen so I hurried up and grabbed the camera.  
They did not know that I took picture of them  but when they saw the  flash, they both looked and smiled at me lol.
Oh the joy of having  kids around!
