DIY gift bows

Guest post written by Debbie Parsons

When we were growing up, my mom used to always make the best looking bows with all this scrap ribbon to put on top of our Christmas presents. I was always so jealous that she could do that because mine were so limp and ugly looking. She tried to show me how so many times how to make them, but I could never get them to look right.

I've just bought those premade bows that aren't very pretty up until now and I decided that this would be the year that I would learn how to make a proper bow. I found some instructions for how to make a bow with my Wireless Internet and bought a bunch of festive ribbon that I found on clearance at a craft store.

I've tried out making a few gift bows and although they aren't the best looking things, they look okay. I think it also helps though that they're made with really pretty looking ribbon. I guess this is the same as almost everything, practice makes perfect.

Early Christmas Present

Hubby just got himself an early Christmas present. He got the Video Converter and he is so happy. But, still I need to get him something for Christmas. I am hoping to find out what he really want for Christmas. I guess I have to be a spy from now on and see what he really likes. We got most of the stuff for the kids already and now I need to start wrapping Christmas presents soon.

If you like a Video Converter for Mac or iPad Video Converter just visit Anyway today is a Cyber Monday. Did you guys done your shopping online yet? For me I am still looking and did not find anything yet. Some of my friend found a good deal already but not me. Maybe I'll try my luck again later. I need to take a little break for the computer for a moment the medicine makes me dizzy.

Positive On Strep Throat

Just got back from my doctor's office and I am positive on strep throat. My throat looks really nasty inside and painful. It hurts really bad and I hate it this is my first time to have strep. My family had it before but not me. I guess I am now officially part of the strep throat club lol. The good thing now is that I have the medicine that I needed to get rid of this thing.

I hope to get better soon so I can get back on my normal routine. I really need to get back on my exercise. I been not exercising for over a week now and I am not happy about it. Although I did not gain any weight but, I want to lose more. So, once I am feeling okay again I need to get back to my exercise again.

I am still crossing my finger to lose more weight. For now I need to concentrate on getting better. I hate taking medicine but, this time I don't have any choice but to take it. I just hope that the medicine will start kicking in soon! Have a wonderful week ahead everyone...

New House

My friend just bought a new house and she is so excited about it. She can't wait to move in. They also got the First Time Buyer Mortgages discounts and more deals. Also the Mortgage Rates that they got is very low. I am so happy for them and can't wait myself to see their new home. She is so excited about the house that she already start planning on how she decorate it.

Here is a website for the Mortgages for First Time Buyers to get advice and more. Anyway the kids want to put the Christmas decoration outside when they got home from school. I am not sure if we can do it today though. I am not feeling good and I need to take plenty of rest. If we can't do it today I will make sure will do it tomorrow. I will be a lot better tomorrow I think.

Slow Day For Me

I am not having a good day today and not feeling good. I just wish that I'll be back to feel better soon. Anyway hubby and I are planning to buy a storage shed to put in our back yard so we can get rid of some stuff in the garage. I want to park my car inside the garage so I don't need to worry about the frost every morning.

Anyhow Are you in the market or planning to purchase a sustainable modular building, green modular building or warehouse mezzanine systems? If you do visit Also if you have any questions you can contact them through email or by phone. Just click the link above and it will take you to their website.

I am taking a break from my house chores since I am not feeling good. Thank god I have a wonderful husband who take good care of me. I am just trying to relax here so I'll get better soon.

Thanksgiving Dinner Date

Guest post by Felicia Pittman

A lot of people have family close by that they can spend their Thanksgiving day with. Unfortunately for me, I was never particularly close with my family. A lot of things happened that I don't like to talk about. This means the normal family get together most people experience never happens to me. Well, for the last two years I have been attending a local college in an attempt to educate myself and improve my work prospects. During this time I met a few friends and one of those friends in particular understand my situation.

Jessica has been there for me for a long time and she doesn't have the money to fly home on holidays since her family lives on the other side of the country. We got together and had a few drinks, ate a few turkey sandwiches, and in general had a good time goofing off for Thanksgiving instead of sitting around and being miserable. The same thing happened again the next year. We've already discussed it and it will happen this year as well.

Our friends constantly claim we're dating, but we're just great friends. Friends can snuggle up and watch satellite television from after eating turkey sandwiches, right? Well, we plan to do the same thing this year and they can all be jealous. Jessica makes the best sandwiches and I can bake one heck of a sweet potato pie.

Personal gift wrap touches

Guest post written by Kelsey Woodward

Last year when Christmas rolled around, I promised myself that I was going to get a little more serious about gift wrapping and learn how to put together some great looking holiday gifts. Before I barely knew how to make a bow, so I used one Saturday to sit down and learn how to make some bows and take the time to wrap gifts neatly. This year I'm practically going to be an expert!

I've been using my clear internet to look up sustainable and green ways to wrap gifts and lots of people have come up with some really great ideas!

But I still have a lot of wrapping paper on hand because sometimes gifts just look better with wrapping paper. I also like to use tiny scraps of wrapping paper to wrap bigger things and layer pieces of paper in strips to act like ribbon or bows. Plus the really small scraps are great for making little personalized gift tags. ItÕs those little small things like that that can make a gift that much more special.

What A Day

I can't believe how crazy it was today at the road and in the store. My daughter and I went to a couple of girly store. We did found a very good deal. I got her a couple pair of shoes for only 2.49 that was so cheap. So, now she is so happy on what she got. I got something for my son also and then off we go home. I couldn't stand the traffic today.

My husband had to park the car while my daughter and I shop. We couldn't find a parking spot near the store. Well, next year I'll just stay home and relax. The kids are camping out in our living room right now while watching movie. Soon will be dinner time and we have a lot of leftovers to eat.

Black Friday Sale

Tomorrow is the day to shop for the black Friday sale. I want to buy a tory burch shoes also I saw a tory burch fur boots that I really like. I love collecting shoes I guess its a women thing. My daughter is like me she love shoes too. She wanted us to buy her a fur trim boots for Christmas. The one that she like is a little expensive so mommy is saving for it.

I also checked out earlier the stuart weitzman and jeffrey campbell shoes. They have a lot of beautiful shoes and boots. I just love browsing around for shoes. Whenever we go to the store I always spend so much time at the shoes department. My husband and son doesn't care much about the shoes but my daughter and I love to browse around.

Tomorrow I am going to check out a couple of store. That if I'll be able to get up early lol. I don't usually go out on black Friday but, tomorrow I will try.

Gas Logs

It's going to get cold again on the weekend. Hubby and I never try to use our fireplace before and now that it's getting cold again we are thinking about using it. But, we need to buy Gas Logs for it. We are going to look at R. H. Peterson Real Fyre Gas Logs also we can use a Outdoor Campfyre for the screen room. Since this is our first time to try to use our fireplace we need to read the Gas Log FAQs and more.

Hubby is really looking at the Robert H. Peterson gas logs. I am wondering if we are able to start using it this weekend we have to see. My friend is using a Vented Gas Logs and they like it. I was so happy that finally the whole week this week was very warm but, now we are heading to the cold weekend. So we need to take our jackets again.

We just got better from colds so we need to bundle up this weekend we don't want to catch cold again.

Helping Hands

This is the first Thanksgiving that the whole family work together to make our foods. Our kids help a lot today especially our daughter. We enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner and it was so yummy. Our son ate a lot of turkey tonight and he fall asleep after lol. I can't believed that he fall asleep after dinner.

The funny part is that when he woke up he asked for more turkey. He just love turkey with gravy he is dipping the white meat to the gravy. We had fun preparing everything today and we just eat and relax. Now is movie time for all of us. I probably go to bed early tonight since I went to bed at 2am last night. I need some sleep tonight.

Family Get Together

Family get together is what I missed most. Back home we always have this kind of get together all the time. Over here in the States it's kind of lonely because sometimes you have to celebrate holidays without any Family coming over. Well, after of years living here I kind of use to the it. But, sometimes I still wish that we can celebrate the holidays with everybody you love. Living here that idea is very impossible.

Anyway speaking about family have you check out genealogy blogs? If you want to find out your heritage and ancestry visit their website. It is always nice to know everything about your family. I am glad I grew up knowing the roots of my family back home. I miss my family so much it's been years that I did not spend the holidays with them and I miss it so much. Well, maybe someday soon.

For now I am just enjoying the life here with my loving husband and two beautiful kids. It's getting late already gotta get up early tomorrow. I need to get in bed have a wonderful night everyone.

Best friends; The best therapy

Guest post from: Constance Rodgers

When my best friend and I are together, we usually want to go out. Before leaving the house, I always set my home security alarm from before I visit my best friend. In going out, this usually includes things such as; pedicures, dinner, holiday related outings without children or going to the movies.

Best friends are very special; they are someone who can always understand, no matter what situation presents it. They are always there through the good and the bad days, and always counted on in a pinch. My best friend always brings out the best in me, and sometimes spending special time with another person who is so very important to you, makes getting through another week that much more bearable.

When my best friend and I go out, we know that the evening will be special. No matter if it is to a movie or just out to dinner alone, we know there is no judgment in what we say to one another, and we know that we are going to get from the heart advice and understanding.

Yummy Food

Look what I made yesterday the yummy filipino dish. The kids and hubby love it. The kids love the colorful tapioca. It's really good during cold weekend. My kids want me to make more later. We ate all of it yesterday. What's going to happen with my diet lol.

Well, I have to get back in my exercise as soon as I feel better. I feel so guilty when I am sitting around eating without the exercise. My son keeps feeding me with oranges and grapes. It's better than eating junks I guess. The grapes and oranges are so sweet. Now, the kids are having fun eating fruits thanks to daddy for buying us a bunch of fruits.

New Cars

There are a lot of good deal right now if you buy new car. I would love to have a new car but, not right now I am happy with what I have. Maybe later when I have enough budget to have a new one. I was looking at Toyota Sienna and GMC Yukon-Xl. After having a small car for so many years I would love to have a bigger one next time. For now I need to keep saving for it.

My show my son the picture of BMW M3 at He really like it and he want me to buy it hehehe. I told him someday maybe we can afford it. If you are interested about the BMW car visit link above more info. Anyhow, I am trying to recover from this sickness that I have today. I hope to be better soon. I hate taking medicine be for colds because it makes me sleepy all day.

What A Day

Headache and more is what I have right now. My sinus just went back and I don't like it at all. I took some medicine while ago I hope it will start working soon. Anyway I was wondering if you guys know about Online Trading and Online Broker. Today I checked out and it makes me so interested about their Mobile Trading and also Stock Trading. I want to read more about the services that they're offering when I feel better.

Right now my head is really hurting and I can't stay in the computer for a long time. As soon as I feel better I want to read more about IRA Accounts. For now I need to focus on getting better. I promise the teacher to help her next week. So, I need to get better or else I couldn't go to school next week.

Thanksgiving is almost here and the kids can't wait for their Thanksgiving off. Anyhow I need to try to take a nap and I hope to feel better when I get up. I want to go around the store today to look for Christmas present for the kids. But, I am not up for it today.

Up Early Today

I was up so early today because of my coughing. I woke up coughing and I couldn't go back to sleep anymore. Then, my son also got up early and sit right next to me. So, now we he is watching cartoons. I was hoping to feel better today but then I woke up coughing. The good thing is that my sinus is a lot better today so is my sore throat.

Now is a new thing the coughing I hate it. Tired of coughing already I can't wait to get over this. The weather is cold again outside mr. sunshine did not show up yet. The cold temperatures are not helping us. Since I am not feeling good will be staying at home today and watch movies. It will be our movie marathon day.

Painting The House

We are now in the process of picking a color to paint the exterior of our house. We already have a couple of color that we like. But, we want to look for more colors. Everything out there need to be change including the wall address plaques. I am hoping to find an address plaques that will match the color of the house. I have to go back to the store today and will try to finalize the color that we are going to choose.

It's going to be a lot of work but I am ready for it. I want everything to be ready including the address plaques and numbers so that way we don't need to keep going back to the store. I just want to start and get over it. It's been a while now since the last time I paint. The last time I painted our house it was really fun.

The kids probably want to join in the fun also. We have to see what is the result. I will be sharing some photos in here after we are done painting. You will see the before and after picture.

Bowling For Life

I appreciate the guest post, Lindsay Valdez

I can't imagine a better time I've ever had in my life than the time I spend playing for my local bowling league. All of the teams are very good, but my team is the best; in five years, we've won three league championships and just might win this year too. Because the competition is so good, it makes beating them that much better; I even get bragging rights over the guys I work with because they are on the opposing teams.

I had set the home security alarm (Adt security information) before leaving my house this Saturday when I received a call from a teammate. He told me there was a state tournament coming up and that he thought we had a good shot of winning the grand prize of $100,000. I couldn't pass up the chance and told him to count me in. The team has practiced every day, including the time we spend competing in our league tournament.

Even if we don't win the grand prize, just competing on a team with my friends means more than the money. Of course, winning would mean I get to pay off my car loan, but that's beside the point. I didn't join the team to win money; I joined so I could have fun with my friends while doing something I love: bowling.

Not Feeling So Good

I was in the bed most of the day yesterday. After hubby and our daughter got sick now it's my turn I guess. I had bad headache and sinus plus sore throat yesterday I couldn't even talked for a long time because it hurts. I finally took some medicine that make me feel better and also knock me out the whole night.

I wasn't able to update blog yesterday because of it. Good thing my friend is the one who pick up the kids from school because I feel so crappy yesterday. Both of my kids was so happy because my friend bought them happy meal. When they got home they still have some food and my son said his chicken nuggets was really good. I am glad that the two of them are okay and not sick. We need to get this family sick free zone lol. I hate being sick! I hope to feel better very soon.

Baking newbie does Thanksgiving

Guest post written by Kelly Brown

I had been avoiding it for a few years, but I knew that eventually I would be expected to help cook a Thanksgiving meal. My in laws asked me to host the family meal and I reluctantly agreed. I mean, they've hosted it every other year that me and my husband have been together so I guess that it's only fair. It's just that I've exaggerated my cooking and baking abilities a little. I can't do either really well.

So of course I went online to try and find some recipes that even I could pull off successfully. When I was doing that and the panic was starting to really set in, I saw the website and read through it. After some consideration, I showed it to my husband and we agreed to change over our intenret service to it.

Right after that I found a cherry cobbler recipe that I think I can handle. I decided that I'm just going to buy a prebaked turkey, or else it would really be a huge disaster.

She Is Growing

My baby girl is growing too fast. I went through her closet and she has so many clothes that doesn't fit her anymore. Now I have to go shopping for girls clothing soon. It's perfect for Christmas present. I am hoping to find a good deal on black Friday. Last year hubby got a couple stuff and it was really cheap.

I think we have to go a little early this time last year we went late. For now I need to save up so I can have some money for shopping. I know I lot of friends that are not spending much this holiday and I am the same thing. I am only buying things that we need. The kids got their Christmas list done. So, now hubby and I are going through the list.

Colds And More

Hubby, me and our daughter have a colds and I hate it. I hope we get rid of this soon because I don't like it at all. I been so busy lately and I have so much work waiting for me here at home. I need to have some time to work around her. I want to finish decorating the tree so I can pick up all this mess on the floor.

The kids are so excited about putting the Christmas tree up that they make me take all the Christmas decor down from the attic. Well, we have them all down by the help of my kids. But then they just put them all over the house. So, now I need to get all of this decorating done so I can get rid of all the boxes. I got some put away already but, I still have quiet a few left. I am hoping to get this house clean by Friday.

Too Much

There are so many Free Foreclosures houses around us. I hope everything will come back to normal especially the economy. The question is when? I known so many people that are looking for a job and can't find any. Anyway I have a friend who is looking for a Real Estate Owned Foreclosures. I heard about this Free REO foreclosures I have to share this to my friend. It will help her search for free.

I still can't believe how much are the prices of the house right now. It's so cheap compare to the year when we bought our house. Anyhow we are trying to repaint the exterior of our house. Hubby and I already have the color that we like. Now I need to work on the papers for the home owners association to get the color approve. We are hoping to start painting by spring. I can't wait for the old color to be gone.

Love The Contest

I am hoping to win the contest of a free tickets to the Mickey's very merry Christmas. Last year we won and we enjoyed the whole show a lot. The kids had so much fun on that trip. Anyway have you heard about retargeting companies and retargeting advertising? If you have not heard about it visit You will learn a lot more about retargeting when you visit their website.

After browsing around their website it makes me so interested about retargeting. Anyway I have the two Christmas tree up. I am not done working on it but, I'm almost done. I am hoping to finish it tomorrow but, tomorrow is another busy day for me. I have some other stuff to do tomorrow. I won't have time for my Christmas tree. I will be working on it this weekend. With the help of the kids and hubby will get that tree done in no time.

What A Long Day

I have a very crazy day today and to top it all I am not feeling good. I volunteered to the school today. I am not feeling good but, I already promise the teacher that I am coming so I have to honor that promise. Last night I started to have a little cold sore on my upper lip and I hate it a lot. It bothers me so much I always have cold sore when the weather is so cold.

Then, when we got home today my daughter had a fever. I gave her medicine and now thank god she is feeling okay. Hubby still have the cough and colds I am hoping that he feels better soon. Now, is my time to relax and blog. I finished cleaning the kitchen and put the Christmas boxes in the garage. The kids are getting ready for bed. Soon I will have my quiet time here.

Shopping For Bedding

I look for a new bedding today and I haven't found one that I like. So now I am browsing around at I like the selection of Donna Karan Home bedding I have to show it to hubby and see if he likes it too. In their bath accessories I like that hot pink rug. My daughter would love it if I get it for her. She love everything pink. Even her phone and eye glasses are pink lol. If we let her decide what kind of color we paint our house she want it all pink.

She want me to buy a pink bedding for her bed. So, now I am searching for a pink bedding for her. I will take some picture of it when I got it. Anyway tomorrow is back to school and work. I am hoping to feel a little better tomorrow so I can do my exercise. It's hard for me to exercise when the kids are at home. I missed at least four days of exercise. Tomorrow I need to get back in my routine.

One Tree Is Up

We had our Christmas tree on the living room up yesterday. Today I started to put some decorations on it. But, I am not close to done yet I have more work to do on that one before I can take a picture. The kids want to finish it tonight but, I told them we can't I need to buy something to finish it up. Besides it's getting late they have school tomorrow. Good thing they don't use a school uniform everyday. It's easy for me to manage what clothes they wear each day.

Speaking of uniforms my friend and I was in the store yesterday looking for a scrub tops for her work. She did bought a couple and also a scrub pants to go with it. I was glad that we found it in the first store we stop. We also got some Christmas decorations and more. I am just happy to spend some time with my friend.

Not So Good Weekend

Our weekend was not so good hubby and I feeling sick. I think the cold weather got us already. I hate it I have headache since Friday night. I don't like spending my weekend like this. We did had our grocery shopping today and it was tough driving around when you are not feeling good.

I wish tomorrow will be a better day for all of us. I hope that hubby will feel better soon. The kids are doing fine thank god. They are back to school tomorrow after a 4 days off. I think on the Thanksgiving week they only have two days of school. I need to get the kids to go to bed now it's getting late here.

Looking For Web Hosting Reviews

I think hubby is been reading all the web hosting reviews there is. He wants to make sure that he will pick the best one. So, far he did not find one that he wants yet. Although he is hoping to find one soon so he can start concentrating on his blog. Anyway we are enjoying the DVD that we got today. Well, our son wants it really bad so here we are watching how to train your dragon. The movie is very interesting and funny. My son is having a blast right now. Me I am watching the movie and blogging at the same time.

I am hungry and I don’t know what to make for dinner. I am so tired today we went fishing. The wind was so freezing. Anyhow we had so much fun and the kids too. So, right now is our relaxing time in the couch watching movie. It was so cold today out there in the river. Finally I am having a cup of hot coffee. I will be going out to go to the store today. I need to pick up a medicine in the pharmacy. Enjoy your weekend everyone! I need to get ready to go, the movie is already done.

Homeward Bound

Guest post written by James Henley

Recently, things have felt a little strange in my apartment these days. IÕm 26 years old and I am finally out on my own after a lifetime of school. I found a great job in NYC and made a nice home for myself, but sometimes you just miss your roots. I spend a lot of evenings looking forward to the holidays. I have a huge family back in South Carolina and I am really looking forward to seeing them. My folks and my family members are a little older these days, so the time we have together is really top priority to me.

I always enjoy sharing stories and catching up with my immediate and extended family. Being away has made me a little homesick, and it is going to be very special visit when I go back. I have already started picking presents out for my family, and I have also going to help my father purchase some new Miracle Ear Hearing Aids , as well. I have an overnight bus trip planned, and itÕs going to be great to see South Carolina again. Hopefully, before too long, IÕll start a family of my own.

Over Ate

I over ate again tonight hubby brought us out for dinner. The kids was so happy and they ate a lot. Tonight was the first time that they ate all their foods in their plate. I guess because hubby and I told them that they can't have any dessert if they don't eat their foods. We had a wonderful night tonight thanks to daddy.

Now hubby and our son watching movie. Our daughter is reading a book and I am here blogging. My day today is very productive I done so much around the house. Also I had a break from the kitchen tonight.I had fun cleaning the house today because my dear husband help me a lot. Anyhoo I hope everyone will have a wonderful weekend....


Contribution by Elmo Farmer

My son loves going to the library. I made sure to instill him with a love for books at a very young age. I teach high school, so I know all to well what a child can become when they have a disdain for reading. The branch of the public library near my house has lots of programs for children during the day. Every other Saturday, they have a story time with arts and crafts. So, I pack a bag with little odds and ends for the day. Then, I get the little one ready to go. Before I leave, I always turn on the inhomesecurity security alarm. Not that I have anything worth stealing, but I would rather not have to clean up a ransacked house. The ten minute drive to the library involves my darling son singing the theme song to the Wiggles. Motherhood really is a labor of love. When we finally arrive at the the library, I have to hold him tight, otherwise he will run off without me. As the two of us walk through those doors, and I see the wonder in his eyes as he gazes upon the endless aisles of books in amazement, instead of disgust, I can't help but feel accomplished.

Long Weekend

We are going to have a long weekend this week. The kids have only three day of school this week. So, we are having a long weekend family bonding. I hope it will warm up a little so at least we can go fish one day. I miss fishing we did not fish in the last two weekends due to the weather. I hope that this weekend will be a better week for us to go fishing.

The kids want to go to adventure landing for the go cart ride. We have to see if we can do all our plans on the weekend. Anyway have you check out If not visit their website today. They have a lot of wonderful stuff waiting for you in there. Before you go shopping at the store visit their website first for the best deals. Anyway I am hopping my way out in here for a while I need to get up and start my laundry marathon:).

Another Cold Day In Florida

Today is another day of freezing temperatures here in Florida. The cold weather just started and I want it over already lol. I can't do much stuff when it's cold like this. I want to do some work out in my garden in the backyard but, it's too cold out there. The wind is freezing and I can't stand it. I got the kids to school today and I am so happy because this is the second week that my son did cry.

The kids was asking me today if I am staying to help the teacher I said no next week again. I have a lot to do at home today my laundry is waiting for me. I also need to iron 2 hamper of clothes. Well, before I start ironing I am going to hop in the treadmill first since I missed my exercise yesterday because I was at school. I need to get started here have a great day everyone.

Filling in the gaps

Guest post written by Heather Burnett

If there's a book out there that was source material for some kind of vampire or supernatural thing in pop culture, chances are that I have read it. One of my favorite things to do is to compare the original to the movie or TV show and find all of its flaws and decide which one that I think is better. I almost always think the book is better, but I still have hope for stuff so I keep on doing this.

Well I just finished doing that with the True Blood book series, but I was telling my best friend on gchat with my clearwire wimax 4g , who had done the exact same thing that there was some stuff in there that they referred to in later books that I hadn't read about in the earlier books and I didn't skip any!

Well, she told me about some Charlaine Harris short stories that are also about Sookie that happen throughout the whole series but are just in a seperate book. So thatÕs the next thing IÕm going to read.

Hanging Around The house Today

It's too cold to go outside so we decide to just hang around the house today and watch movies. The kids love it because they can watch the movies that they wanted. I am just browsing around online today. Have you check out the shepard fairey? At their website they have the obey giant art and shepard fairey prints. If you are interested with their products just click the link and it will take you to their website.

I am wondering if the weather is going to be like this again tomorrow. I hope not otherwise will be staying at home again. I hope that next week will be a better week to go out. The kids only have three days of school next week. My son is already so excited about it. I will be spending my whole day at school on Monday. The teacher ask me if I can come and help her. So my Monday is already taken.

Enjoying The Nice Weather

The kids love the cooler weather we have now in Florida. Now they spend more time playing in the backyard every afternoon. Those kids are full of energy I wish I can have some of those energy that they have. Last night I let them play at my friend's house. Both had so much fun playing in there.

When I come to pick them up my daughter's pants was so dirty. She was crawling around the grass in the backyard. My goodness me she was a mess. I sent her to the shower when we got home. My son was okay he did not dirty his clothes at all then, he told me how his sister got so dirty. I guess it's okay since they only play with their friends once in a while not all the time.

Halloween, Halloween

Thanks to Lemuel Craft

I'm a little too old for Halloween. No one wants to admit it, of course, but it looks pretty funny if you're a full grown adult and you're wandering the streets all alone in a kitty costume, begging for candy. So what do you do if you really want to go trick or tricking this year? How do you enjoy a holiday that society expects you to have outgrown?

There's a simple solution.

Take some children trick or treating WITH you.

I do it every year - there's always a church who needs chaperones for trick or treating groups, always a friend or a relative who'd rather stay at home Halloween night. This is where I graciously step in and offer my services.

"Why, sure I don't mind watching your kids! Oh no, it's no trouble at all! You know what, I'll dress up too. It'll look silly if I'm only one not in costume. And I can take a bag for leftover candy, just in case the kids can't carry it all..."

Most people are too grateful to look twice and realize that you're only in for the sweets, too!

The best part? Getting home and enjoying your goodies. Sit back, relax, watch some horror movies on our directtv packages, and eat all your candy without your parents getting angry - you're an adult now!

Getting Ready For Christmas?

Some of my friends got their plans already for Christmas. For me I am still thinking what to get them. The kids are getting old and they don't know what they want. My daughter still like the Play Kitchen and Kid Kraft. If we get her that kind of stuff she probably enjoy it with her brother. Right now she is so interested in cooking. I let her help me once in a while. I still don't trust her around hot stop I think she is too young to do it.

I think Kids Kitchens is the best way for her to enjoy the kitchen stuff right now. Anyway I am getting ready for the kids to be home from school. My friend is the one who is going to pick them up today. So I have to get off here and wait for them outside. Have a great weekend everyone and enjoy your Friday night.

My Super Mario And I

Here is a picture of my and my son during Halloween. I couldn't get my daughter and hubby to join us this time. But, I got a family picture of us later on that day. I will be sharing it too on my next post. When hubby put on his Halloween costume he scares the kids that are trick or treating in our house. So, when he look out the door and little kids are there he has to take off his werewolf head mask.

One kid was so scared at first, when hubby saw her scared he took off the mask and the girl said you almost scared me you know. It was really fun watching the kids go to house to house trick or treating. My son gets so mad when he is the last one in the line lol. He said they might get all the chocolates before he gets there. So, he will push my daughter and her friend out of the way so he can go first lol.

He Is Getting Old

My son is getting old the other day he start talking about investing in gold. I asked him what kind of gold he said gold bullion hubby and I was looking at each other after he said that. We asked him where did you get this idea? He answered us from TV lol. Investing in bullion is really a good idea. I even heard about gold IRA also. Right now we don't have the money to buy gold bullion. But, if we have the money to invest in gold I would do it.

I know that there are a lot of people around the world buy bullion for their investment. I hope I can do the same but, for now I need to saved up for it. Anyway the night is getting late and I really need my sleep. I been going to bed so late almost every night in the past night. I don't like the feeling of being so sleepy all day everyday. So, tonight I am heading to bed earlier.

Back To My Routine

Finally after two weeks of slacking around I am back to my normal routine this week. I am back with my exercise. I am once again in the mood of doing my regular exercise everyday. I feel really good of myself again. I was feeling bad last week that I wasn't able to do my exercise but now I am back. Anyhow I am hoping that my friend will find the house that she is looking for her and her family.

Anyway my sister bought a land with the old house in it. Now she is wondering how much are the house removal costs. She wants the house to be removed so she can build a new one. I hope that she can find a company to do the job for her. I can’t wait to see the design of the house that she is building on that land.

My goodness I can’t believe how time flies. Halloween is done and now we are heading to Thanksgiving Day. After that Christmas day is just around the corner. The kids are excited for Christmas already and my son already wrote down his Christmas list. We are not buying little toys this year. Most of the time the kids just play with it in a few hours after that they don’t want it anymore.

We Love The Chocolates

The kids love the chocolates that they got from trick or treating. I have to put all the sweets away from their eye sight. I don't want them to have too much sweets every day. Anyway during trick or treating the kids really enjoyed it. But, the mosquitoes was having a fest on my legs. Also after awhile the kids got so tired from walking so are the mothers lol.

So, on the way back we did not stop in any houses that we pass we just keep walking so we get home faster. When we got to our house hubby still have a lot of chocolates left in the pail. We bought too much chocolates plus one of my friend brought a couple of bags with them and they add it up in the pail. Kids are looking forward again for next year.

Good Place

I am watching the news right now about the election. I am wondering who is going to win for the governor of Florida. The race is so close right now I can't wait to see the result. Anyway My friend is looking to buy a house right now. She did not found the one that she like yet. So, she is still hunting for the good deal. If you are looking for a home like her visit the website of Bushari Group Real Estate. Check it out if you are looking for Boston Condos or Real Estate in Boston just click the link and it will take you to their site.

This is the best time to buy a house because the prices are so low. Anyhow our plants and grass are so happy right now. The rain is been pouring for hours now. That is good for our plants and grass because we did not have any rain for so long. Tonight is the night for that we save some money because we don't need to turn on the sprinklers.

Fun Halloween Night

We had a very fun Halloween night last night. I had the chance to chat with my friends and had fun with our kids at the same time. The kids was a little upset because we can't stay up late everybody goes to school the next day. The good thing is that all of us had so much fun.

I guess the economy crisis is hurting so many people right now. Normally you will see a lot of people giving away candy in our neighborhood every Halloween. But, this year not much. Even the hunted house around the corner is not present this year. Okay today is another busy day for me plus I promise my son that I will be coming to see him on lunch time. So, I need to get on with my ironing soon.
