Dream TV Stand

Hubby and I are doing some window shopping on furniture last weekend. We are slowly buying stuffs for our house. And my long time dream tv stands are on sale at that time on our local mall but we don't have any money so we let it pass hoping there will be next sale. I am so sad about that. I am eying that TV stand for a long time. Hubby said it was not meant to be. So I will just wait for another sale and I will be lucky if that TV stand is still there. Sigh!

Busy as a Bee!

I am so sorry for not blog hopping so often guys I am so busy these days. I wish there is 48 hours in a day! Sigh! I also joined the Scrappinmoms Idol 2 and it drains my energy a lot! Like for the Week #1 we are asked to do a 4pc party set and that includes a pop up invitation! I hardly slept the past week just thinking on what to do for this round. And I have to do my CT works on digital scrapbooking. Really time consuming. I also need to look for a Lipovox review because sister is asking for my help with her research. Thank God my hubby is not demanding with my time right now. He understands that I am happy doing this. Thanks Hon!

Life Saver

It was so nice to see a stall that offers a promotional products at the super market. There is one time that the daughter of my yaya was with me and she kept on telling me that she is hungry already. But I still need to buy groceries. So when i spotted those promo girls I asked for a sample and she gladly gave me a lot! The kid was happy she is not hungry anymore. LOL! Promotional products are a life saver! heheheh!

Travel Abroad

Mom and dad is planning to go to Bangkok this year. The always check the Cebu Pacific Website for some discount on the flight tickets. They are also need to renew their passport because its been a while since they went outside the Philippines. I am so excited for them. I might not go with them but I am happy that they can experience going abroad together. If this will pursue this is their first time to go together abroad.

I was cleaning my scrap area last night after I made my entry for the scrapinmoms idol 2 when I saw the ikea magazine. I love ikea so much. Even if I haven't bought anything there. LOL! I fantasize their furniture catalog and I wish I can buy there also someday. I have a lot on my things to buy list. I am also saving up for a new furniture on our house.

Go Go Go Cousin!

My cousin went home from manila last week. I am happy to see her again. We cope up with each other and talked on what happened in our lives. She said she was applying for a job with term life insurance handling. I was so happy for her.I hope she gets the job. She is also blooming because she said she has a love life right now! After so many years of being love less she is now happily in love! I wish her more success in life and more happiness. Way to go girl!!!

Promotional Items

I am looking for promotional items right now. Dad asked me to find one for his friend. He wants me to search the web and help him find the best one and the most thing that people will like. I came across this site that has a lot of it and I said to myself that this is the one I am looking for. Dad will surely be thankful for this. I am referring this site called Inkhead to him. I hope his friend will like it also.

Healthy Me

My tummy hurts when I drink coke. Last night there is Coke zero on the fridge and I asked hubby if I can drink that and he said ok. After I finished a glass my tummy hurts a lot. I thought I just need to go to the bathroom but tummy still hurts a lot. I will never drink sodas again. I need to rest my tummy from now on from sodas. I might also consider on the colon cleanse that my friends are telling me. I need to be healthy!

Christmas is Near. Weeeee!!

It is already August (my birth month) and this is the last month that has no "ber". September will be coming up and Christmas is near already. I better start creating Christmas invitations to our family party. I need to make one for a change. we always use our mobile phones in inviting my relatives and maybe this year we need to make an invite to make things formal right? I will mark my calendar and do this as much a possible as I can.


Sadness is self-inflicted.

You need not to bother too much about every crappy, shitty occurrences around you.

But then again, you tend 2 get yourself involved.

Happiness is self-induced just the same.

As they say, it’s just a matter of perspective.

So while you still have the chance to shape your day’s mood, choose: would u rather be sad or happy?

Life is good.

Life is bad.

You decide.

Birthday Present

I am currently browsing this site which I can buy a compact flash for my brothers birthday this coming September 4. I want to give him an upgrade since he will be needing a lot of capacity on his memory card for his DSLR. He was two child and he will be taking lots and lots of photos of them. I hope he won't read this or else the plan will be destroyed! LOL! I need to save up for that now.

Photo Shoot

I had my photo shoot last Wednesday evening. I had my tripos, my D80 and my remote. I dressed up as if I will go to the mall. Wear my accessories and changed my hairstyle from time to time. I was having fun shooting myself. Hubby was so busy outside doing something with his motorcycle. One thing I noticed is that I lose weight the last time I had a photo shoot like that. I am happy but I need to work on my weight more. I need to exercise and lose more weight. If that won't work I will take into the plunge and take this Leptitrex medicine! But I think I can do this! I need to do this! Wish me luck friends!
