Slowly Shedding Off The Weight

I was kind of surprised this morning when I weighed myself and those numbers in the picture showed. When I weighed myself yesterday morning, I was 117+ lbs! I just couldn't believed that I've lost almost 3 lbs since yesterday but I weighed myself again 4 times to make sure and it is the same numbers that shows!

I am not complaining about it, in fact, I'm very thrilled! Finally, I'm shedding off some of those extra pounds slowly even though I have not exercised or dieting in a long time.

Since I got off my birth control which was a depo shot and started my period, I immediately noticed that I was starting to lose weight! I was suspecting that it was the depo shot that was making me gain weight! I went up to 126 lbs! That was biggest I've been, not being pregnant!

Anyway, I am just so relieved that finally I am seeing some progress! My target weight is still 103 lbs or less. So I still have a long way to go but I know I can do it!!

We Are Raising Chickens!

Wewww, it's been such a long time since I updated this blog. I have been so busy the past months that it was so hard for me to update all 4 blogs. So I decided to just try updating two of them at least once a week, but even that, it was still hard for me to keep up!

Anyway, everything is still pretty hectic around here but I guess I am kind of adjusted to my new schedule. One of the things that's keeping me busy around here, is taking care of chickens! Yes are raising chickens now!

We currently have 3 hens which lays 1 egg each everyday and 1 rooster. They are actually not that hard to take care of. The whole family is enjoying the chickens as a matter of fact especially the little ones!

We decided to raise chickens for them main purpose of having fresh eggs everyday. We only had these chickens for 3 days and so far they've given us 5 fresh eggs! Not all 3 hens are laying eggs right now, I think because one of the hens is still traumatized from moving them to their old home to ours. They're definitely getting used to their new home, so they'll be laying eggs in regular basis pretty soon!

Anyhow, here are some photos of our chickens below..

Soon To Be 9-Year In Marriage!

Woahhh! I didn't realize that it's been almost a month since I posted my last entry on here! I've been so busy and my schedule has been so hectic lately! my 2nd grader, like I mentioned on my previous post is now in a baseball team and they practice twice a week. That's one thing that's occupying my time. I have not been updating any of my blogs regularl because I haven't had that much opportunities coming in, that's probably one reason why I am kinda neglecting my blogs! But it doesn't mean that I am interested in blogging anymore. Even though, there are no tasks lately, I still want to continue to blog.

Anyway, here I am taking advantage of this little free time that I have to update this blog. I want my dear readers to know (if any) that my husband and I are soon to be celebrating our 9th year anniversary this coming Sunday! Not only that, it is also the same day I set foot on this strange land that they call USA, the land of opportunity! It is truly hard to  believe that I have been living here for that long and my husband and I have been married for almost 9 years!

We may not have the biggest house or a lot of money to go on a vacation every year but I am so THANKFUL and feel BLESSED for everything that I have that our GREAT LORD ABOVE have showered me over the past years! Especially for my two beautiful boys! They'll always be forever my anniversary, birthday, Mother's day, Christmas presents!!! I also thank my husband for giving me those two most wonderful gifts a woman could ever ask for!!

Anyhow, below is a photo of me and hubby together. This is not the most recent photo of us but I haven't had the time to take a picture of me and him together. Maybe on our anniversary I will take a good picture of me and him. Anyway, this photo below was taken during our family vacation to the Philippines in 2009! So we were 5 years younger in the picture! LOL!

Although me and him may not always get along, I do want to spend my life with him for as long as the LORD GOD allow us! I could not imagine spending my life with somebody else! From the moment I set my eyes on him, I know he was the one meant for me and I do feel lucky and blessed having him as my husband! HAPPY 9-YEAR ANNIVERSARY HONEY AND LOOKING FORWARD TO SPEND 9 MORE YEARS OR MORE WITH YOU! I LOVE YOU!!!

He's In A Baseball Team!

I am really glad that my second grader joined the baseball youth league back in the February. They practicing in the middle of last month and they've probably had about 6 practices already! They practice twice a week, every Thursday and Saturday. My son loves going to the practice which I am glad because he is getting so much outdoor activity which is way better than sitting in front of the computer playing video games.

Anyway, he have not had any experience catching and batting the ball but he's getting better each practice. He couldn't wait to actually play in the real game but I told him it will be a while before that happens because their team needs more practice.

He Got Another Award

This is kind of a late post but I just have to share it here since I am just so proud of my second grader for getting another award the second nine weeks. This time, he got a perfect attendance award! It might now be a big deal for some but I applaud him for completing all school days during the second nine weeks, not a lot of students can do that!

Anyway, aside from getting an award certificate, all the students with perfect attendance also went to a snow tubing trip as a reward. I am really glad that the school started doing this because this encourages students to work hard not to miss school days if they don't really have to! Anyhow, here is a photo of my son holding his award certificate during the ceremony at the school gym! I am truly proud of him beyond words!

My New Crafting Table!

Wow it's been a long time since I posted my last entry on here! I haven't had any desire to blog lately. There are just too many things going on that blogging has been my less priority these days. Today I have this free time and I am taking advantage to update some of my blogs!

Anyway, so I finally got my new crafting table thanks to my husband for buying it for me! This was his Valentine and pre-anniversary present for me! I am just loving my new crafting table. Both my sewing and Cricut machine can fit in it and so did some of my crafting supplies! Now I have more room in my closet after I got the sewing and Cricut machine out! I haven't done any crafting much but I am looking forward to work on my new crafting table!

Anyhow, here are some pics below showing my new crafting table. It is not very organized right now. I was in hurry to put my stuff in there for my little one was having so much fun grabbing my stuff. I had to put a child safety lock so he can't open it for there are sharp objects such as scissors that could harm him...
My new crafting table! I had to put the child safety lock so my youngest son can't open it...

Caught in the act! See what I mean? hehe

Are You One Of These Homeowners?

A lot of homeowners these days are taking upon themselves to do the home repairing. As hard as it is, I would say that it is a lot cheaper and smarter to tackle the home repair yourself compare to hiring somebody to do it! My husband and I are one of those homeowners. If it something that we can fix ourselves, there's no reason for us to buy a new one or hire anybody to do it!

But below is an interesting fact of how many homeowners put off home repairs due to these following reasons. Are you one of these of homeowners?

Deals On Tablecloths And Napkins



I just discovered over 2 weeks ago(thanks to a friend) that Burlington Coat Factory has an online store. I've heard from people who have shopped in their stores of how cheap most of their items are. Unfortunately, we do not have a store nearby so finding out about their online store got me so geared up! I went online and looked around and was really amazed of how truly cheap some of their items, especially the ones on clearance!

Above are some of the deals that I got shopping on their online store for the very first time. These tablecloths and napkins were on clearance for $1.98 each for the tablecloth and $0.98 each for a set of 4 napkins! I thought these were such good deals and just the perfect timing for I have been looking for some new tablecloths! I bought 3 different colors of tablecloths and 2 sets each of yellow and burgundy color table napkins! All of these were less than $10, not including the shipping and tax of course! At Walmart, tablecloth cost at least $9 each, so I am really thrilled to have purchased these stuff for a very low price!

I've Been Too Lazy Lately...

..to update my blogs! As you can see, it has been almost 2 weeks since I've posted an entry on this blog. All that snow that we had was making me lazy to update my blogs plus I haven't received any decent tasks for the past months. Thankfully, for the past few days, the weather has been really nice. We've experienced rain but I like that better than snow. 

Today looks like another beautiful day although it is still wet and muddy outside but at least the sun is out. This will help us save some electric bill from turning on the heater! Last month's bill was ridiculously high but my husband thinks that it is cheaper to use the electric heater than using oil!

Anyway, there's really not much to update. My son school schedule is finally back to normal. Hopefully no more of those harsh winter weather. Looking forward for more of the sunny days and hopefully Spring time will be here before we know it!

More School Days Missed!

Schools here in our county have missed so much school days already. Just this week alone, schools were closed almost all week due to the snow and bitter cold temperatures. But that's not gonna be the end of that, it just snowed few hours ago and the news was saying that it will be worst next week due to the arctic blast heading this way!

I am sure I am not alone if I say I am so ready for Spring! But sad to say that Spring is still about 3 months away or probably more! This is the time when I wish that I have plenty of money to take a tropical vacation and enjoy a sunny day at the beach!!! That would be very nice but it's not going to be a reality since money is lacking in the picture! Lucky are those who can easily do that whenever they want to!

A Crafting Table Will Do!

I've always wanted to have my own craft room but that's gonna be impossible right now due to lack of space around here. But I have been rearranging and getting rid off many unnecessary things and putting new shelves to change the look of our house for the New Year. I have this space where I was planning on putting a console table or some kind of display shelf but after I came across of this crafting table as I was browsing on the net yesterday, I made up my mind that it will be perfect table to put in that space!

So this crafting table will do for now to serve 3 purposes, a crafting table, a storage and a display table! It's a bit expensive but maybe if I talk to my husband about it, he'll get it for me for our anniversary which is about 4 months from now. But I do not want to wait that long to get it, if I can convince him to get it very soon, it would be very great! 

Anyway, the crafting table that I am talking about is pictured below! PLEASE NOTE THAT THE IMAGES ARE NOT MINE!

Disgusted And Disappointed!

The realization happened this morning when I was getting ready for church. I mean I've realized long time ago that I've gained so much weight and I needed to do something about it but I wasn't really serious in doing it. Not until this morning when it finally hit me on the face that my weight gain is getting way out of hand and I need to act fast!!!

It is truly depressing when I don't feel comfortable wearing jeans anymore due to my bulging belly! I can't hardly fit in my jeans and I am really disgusted about it! I am really disappointed of myself for letting this happen. This is the biggest I've been not being pregnant. One more pound to go and I'll be as big when I was 9 months pregnant with my first child! Ughhhhh I am just so disgusted! I can't stand it! So I am gonna have to work harder and work even harder to get rid off these unwanted weights and I know I can do it!!!!!

Holiday Break Has Come To An End!

Holiday break has finally come an to an end. My student will be going back to school tomorrow, that is if it won't snow and freeze tonight! I am actually kinda hoping that it will snow as much as I hate it because I am not ready to get up early in the mornings again yet! But if it won't, I guess I won't have any choice but to drag my butt up when it's time to get up!

Anyway, I did enjoy my Holiday break! It was a lot longer this year compare to last year! I had fun times with my family, especially the kids! We had a great Christmas and New Year celebration although there has some series of unfortunate events that had happened! But like the saying goes, "Life must go on!"...and so we will continue to live our lives and deal positively with the pains and heartaches that comes along with it!
