Investing : The Sooner The Better

With all the crazy deals online and in the stores, I was almost tempted to sell my stocks. I just don't have enough money to buy those incredible electronic gadgets that have super low prices. Good thing that my husband encouraged me not to sell them and not think about it. So true because there's nothing to lose if I miss the huge sale. Because of this, I realized that I have to find another way of investing, a better one. Something that I can't just withdraw right away when I have my shopping urges.
I realized that the best way in investing right now is to buy gold bullion. We can buy precious metals at United States Gold Bureau as investments. For me, I will buy gold and silver. Since I was a child, I already have gold and silver jewelries because my mom always buy for me on special occasions such as birthdays and graduations. As years go by, the value of my jewelries increased when I have them appraised. Now that I'm a mother already, I believe that buying gold is a good investment for my children. The sooner I invest the better for them.

Wordless Wednesday/ Never Too Early

Right after the Halloween, I decided to put up our Christmas early. In the Philippines, we started decorating as early as September :-). Right after Halloween might be that bad at all. I still have to do more decorating today and the following days because I am going to shop for Christmas decors on Black Friday.

Baby Carrier

I have three babies already but I have never found a baby carrier as comfortable as ergo baby carrier . I have give away three baby carriers already because  my back hurts after I used them. This carrier can be worn in many ways. You can wear on front, on back and on the hip. This is super versatile. My favorite is the optional cozy infant insertment. This  can be used for a long time because it is suitable for newborn babies through toddler up to 40 pounds. I can honestly say that this will be a perfect baby shower gift.

What A Small World

Jody, my stepdaughter died in car accident last 2008. She has two daughters. We adopted the eldest and the youngest is with her real father. Bianca has a different lifestyle now as compared to when her mom was alive. They use to live from one place to another. She  missed school alot. I hate to blame her mom. May her soul rest in peace. I have to say, it's the people surrounding them who are influencing them in a negative way. But that's the past. Right now, I can say and many people have noticed that Bianca is comfortable with her new lifestyle. She's happy. She's one of the top students in her class. She never missed the school and she's jolly. But one of Jody's friend wasn't too happy with the way we raised Bianca.She said we're too strict for her. But I don't really care about her opinion. I assumed that she's mad at me because she's no longer close to the kids like she used to be. I just can't trust her anymore. She blew our trust big time. One time when she picked up Bianca at school, she brought Bianca late and the worst, I found a weed in Bianca's backpack. Since then I was suspicious of her. I don't know her that much so I search for her. I found her in myspace and surprisingly I found an article about  her in our local newspaper for stealing a car outside the Torero's restaurant. It showed a picture of her and her full name. What a small world.

Black Friday Shopping

I'm excited for the coming after Black Friday sale. Should I go to the biggest chain of stores and opt to buy their super low price LCD television (even tho i just bought a 52 inch HDTV)? Or buy a new laptop for myself and give the old one to my 6 yr. old? or I  could go to another state and get in line in the early morning to try to purchase 3 pairs of different styles of boots and the latest style of the Bearpaw winter collection? or should I stay at home and spend the Black Friday with my children and wait for better deals before the Christmas Season??? Ahhh the life of the confused shopper sometimes get me... Happy Thanksgiving everyone....

Never Too Late for More Christmas Presents

Last October, my family received their, package from me. And I was so overjoyed when I heard their excitement over the phone. It's always nice to give and make your loved ones happy. I'm thanking of sending another package. For a 22x22x22 box, it will cost me only $79, unlimited weight and it will only take 6 weeks for the shipping duration. I have stuffs here that can fill a box already but I will add more supplements and best vitamins for my dad. He's working too hard in the farm so he deserve the best there is. Tomorrow I might go to the mall to go shopping and hopefully I can find good deals in clothing and shoes so I can buy some for my brothers and sisters.

Wish List

On the 29th of this month is our 7th year Wedding Anniversary. I can't believe it's been that long. I realized that on our anniversaries I only gave my husband a card while he gave me gifts. He said that it should be the husband who is supposed to give gifts on anniversaries not the wife. That's why I just let him do it. On our first anniversary, I was in the Philippines, he sent me chocolates and a bunch of cool stuffs , on the second anniversary,we were already together and he gave me a necklace, flowers and chocolates. On the third, he gave me earrings, stuff toy, flowers and chocolates. On the fourth, he gave me a nice jewelry box. It's so beautiful.and as usual with flowers, chocolates and stuff toy. Then on the fifth, he gave me a laptop and as always, flowers, chocolates etc. Then on the 6th, he gave me a very nice fortune plant that I've been eyeing for a long time. He gave me the usual stuffs.And for our 7th year, I will ask him to buy me a sexy lingerie.I realized  that he never got the chance to buy me those kind of stuff. It will be a challenge for him but we'll see if he'll do it.

Party Giveaways

I'm wondering what are the best rated cigars? Next year, my husband will retire and I'm planning to give a retirement party for him if he's not gonna get one from work. But I doubt that because I have talked to one of the ladies in the personnel department, she said they're going to throw a party for him. But I am planning to give him another party at home. And since we'll be inviting his co workers, having cigars as giveaways would be nice. I still have four months to plan but I'll start looking around for the best deals in cigars.

Use Or Loss

I'm so jazzed today because it's the beginning of my husband's vacation. He has more than 150 hours use or lose so he needs to use before the end of the year. So beginning today, he's off from work and will be back on the 3rd of January next year. I'm so relieved because  I can relax. I don't need to drop the kids to school because he can do it for me. We'll be busy making plans for his vacation. As a matter of fact, tomorrow we'll bring the kids to the zoo. I just hope that with his six weeks vacation he'll not gained too much weight. Oh well, pull up bars are always there to the rescue. I know it can help him a lot.

Finally She's Walking

At 15 months old, my baby Sophia finally walks on her own. Compared to her brother and sister she learned how to walk later. Her brother started walking when he's 10 months old only then her sister started walking a week after her first birthday. My friends said that it's because she's chubbier than them. I am so excited because I was able to take a video of her first few steps.

Nice Spa Cover

Today is the last day of sale for the cheapest spa cover at But still you can't beat their prices because it's factory direct and the delivery is free. Their spa covers are custom made in USA and you can even design your own hot tub cover if you want to. What I love about buying spa covers from them is their five years outstanding warranty. With their nineteen years experience in the business, we are secured and confident that they made nothing but the best quality and top value products in the market. They have walk-on hot tub covers that support two adults or a standard foam core hot tub cover. You can conveniently choose which cover you wanted that is perfect for your hot tub. 

Trick Or Treating

I can say that this is the best trick or treating ever. My plans happened as I anticipate it to be. It's always an advantage when you're always ahead of the game.  I asked the kids to wear their costumes at around 1pm so we can take pictures. Last year I wasn't able to take pictures of them very well because Sacha took the kids for trick or treating while I was on the store. They were not dressed up properly.Their costumes were ruined before I even took the pictures. Anyways, this year I make sure, I'm in charge. At around 2pm, I took pictures of them so I don't have to worry about their pictures later. We started trick or treating at around 4pm. We didn't bring Sophia because she was sleeping. She woke up at around 5pm so we head back home and get her and we were trick or treating in the neighborhood. The kids were having  fun. Their buckets were already full at about 6:30 so we decided to go home. It was fun.I can't believe we gather so many candies in one hour and 30 minutes. It is perfect day, everyone was happy. Most especially, my baby Sophia was able to enjoy her first trick or treating. I will post pictures later.
