She Loves to Draw

This girl just grabs her pencil and paper and draw! When she gets tired watching tv, she would just come to the couch where the center table is and draw. So I let the table to be messy and cluttered of paper and other stuff.

I can tell in her drawings, it progresses so much. Before she’d just draw a simple girl with long hair and a face with just lines in it. But now, she can draw more expressive eyes and mouths in her drawings!

When this kid gets bored, she does not whine nor get grumpy, she just find a way to entertain herself and I am glad she is that good! Well, actually, both of my Princesses are good!

Tight Budget? Use Coupons

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are written solely by me.

There are times in our life no matter how hard we work that we get tight with our budget because some unexpected spending comes. When that happens, all we got to do is try to prioritize the things we need in daily basis.

There are certain ways in which you can save money with your groceries, household products and even clothing and much more. Through the use of Groupon Coupons, you will help your finances at ease a little bit if you are willing to dig a little deeper on the site and find those coupons you need on certain things. You don’t need to sacrifice your family’s needs simply because you have no budget for it.

You can even find coupons for Auto Zone for your car’s needs. You see, it is just a matter of being patient and frugal so you can save some money.

I have been doing the couponing in our local stores, pharmacy and even in the mall and helped my husband a little bit albeit, I am a stay-at-home mom and wife. It doesn’t cause harm nor hurt us to use coupons you know. I even use a coupon dining out at Red Lobster for my birthday celebration. I am not shy to say it because it’s an honest way to save us for our meals one time.

A New Place to Go in Summer

Mommy has found a new place, a fun place for us to go every Summer. She actually was told last year by a friend that there’s this area not too far from where we live that is nice and last Saturday, we finally able to go there. It was a good three hours spent in the spray area with mommy’s friend and her three kids.

Yes, it is not very far from us, just 12 minutes drive and it was easy for her to find. Such a perfect place to get wet, play with friends, enjoy the heat and most of all be outdoors and simply have fun.

Here is a picture of us to show you how much we liked it there. Mommy said that she will bring us there once a week and I rely on her words. We plan of going back there again this Saturday. I am excited!

Lava Cable

When you are looking for something, you would always go on the internet to search for it for prices, its features or capabilities, accessories and parts. Everything nowadays is searchable and available on the internet, same goes with lava cable for your instrument or speaker. I would recommend you search for Musician Friend’s lava cable because they have tons of products listed in that category there starting from under $18. Or for faster searches, you can narrow your search by prices, condition, customer rating and or by best sellers. Enjoy browsing.

Vacation Bible School 2016

A week-fun of Vacation Bible School is over. It has ended yesterday. It started June 13,2016 at Edge Park Methodist Church. It was the Princesses’ second time in the same church attending VBS. For the whole year, they were really looking forward attending the program and could not stop asking me when it was going to start. Time flew by quickly for it is over now.

Vacation Bible School is offered in some churches elsewhere but we chose this specific church mentioned above because aside from theirs is free, the people are so warm, very welcoming, very nice and they make us feel like we are their family. Everybody is just smiling and they love our Princesses attending their activities.

It is with great appreciation for Pastor Bill and the rest of his church members for a successful VBS this summer. Looking forward to seeing them again next year! Vacation Bible School is such an awesome summer program for children to learn the Bible stories, learn how to do meaningful crafts, singing and praising God, Science activities and just having to do something worthwhile and educational when they are out of school. They ended the program on the fifth day with free dinner for kids and the parents and a bounce house afterwards.

We are very grateful for programs like this and for spending their time with us. Special mention Ms. Tawana and Ms. Pam for being the girls’ friends while being there. God Bless You All!

Gymboree Sleeping Pair of Pajamas on Clearance with Additional Discount

Although Gymboree is an expensive children’s brand of clothing yet I love to shop their for my Princesses’ clothes. Not only they are of good quality, gorgeous prints and designs of their dresses but they also offer additional promo on their clearance items.

I scored these two pairs of sleeping pajamas for only $6.72 each. I had a 20% off coupon on hand to top of their additional 40% off clearance prices. So, that’s a total of 60% off!

You see, the prints on these jammies are hearts, they were displayed for Valentine’s Day but I did not mind buying them. Children don’t really care about the occasions, instead, they will view it as beautiful because of heart prints on their jammies. In return, I still get the appreciation of my girls aside from getting them in deep discount.

Easter Egg Hunting in our Backyard 2016

This year’s Easter egg hunting is a bit different than we usually do. I did not take the Princesses to a Baptist church because it was dark, cloudy and windy that day. It would be inconvenient for all of us to be out in the open and being cold. Our neighbor told me I am a sissy for not going out and taking the girls out but hey, I’d rather be comfortable and do the egg hunting in our time instead of doing the thing that I don’t really feel like doing.

Anyway, here are a few snaps of our girls doing their own egg hunting in our clean and green backyard. I hid some of the eggs and candies real good to give them a job. Besides, it wouldn’t be an egg hunting if they are just placed right in front of them, would it?

Doing it in our backyard is easy and they do not have to dress fancy to show off. I do it because it’s a tradition no matter where they are or what they wear.

Fishing with Uncle Mike

So here’s the very first activities we did the day after we arrived at Mike’s ranch. First, we had to go into the wooded part of his property to get some bamboos to make them into our fishing poles. Going into the woods was quite a challenge for us especially for the girls for there lots of thorny vines all over the place, dead twigs, muddy paddles and a chance of stepping into a snake!

But with Mike’s guidance and navigation, we were able to get what we wanted to get that day. Then, we headed back to his house and cleaned the bamboos, smooth it and get it ready for fishing by tying a line on the tip and used paperclips for the moment.

After setting up the fishing poles, we head out back to the bigger creek and began what had to be the longest wait for the fish to eat the bait, we used cheese at that time for Mike couldn’t find any earth worms at all.

Of course, the second day, he had to make it right and bought us the proper line which is the nylon, a crappie bait and a fishing hook.

Nothing beats the country life, it takes us outdoors and made us admire the beauty of nature all the more.

The Two Princesses’ First Country Life Experience

We spent 4 nights and 4 days at a ranch owned by our friend, Mike in Avery, east of Texas. I am glad we were able to get away from the house for a short period of time and took advantage of the Spring break. Also, I did not have to attend to the old lady across the street so everything fell into places and we were able to have a good time away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The two Princesses had their first country life experience and they did not just like it there, they LOVED it. In fact, during those days we stayed at the ranch, none of them or any of my family talked about going home too soon. If I did not tell my husband to go home after 4 days, I don’t think he would go back any moment but we have obligations at home so we must.

The last moment of our stay at Mike’s, the girls did not or were not ready to leave and wanted to stay a couple more days. Even after we got home, they seemed to have not overcome the country experience. They were having a blast, truly. Because there are so many things to do out there that kept them occupied and be active. Two creeks that we can go fishing, an open and wide field to run, chase/play with dogs, early morning dirt road hike and so many other things.

There will be many country life postings next time. So keep coming back!
