My New Slicer

|

January 27, 2014

Making homemade sweet potato chips has always been my favorite snack to make at night instead of Pringles Sour Cream. Cutting sweet potatoes is not that easy especially the knife that I am using is not that sharp as I want it to be. I don’t want to buy a sharpener and I thought it cost more than I expected for a sharpener. When I went to Wal-Mart yesterday I made sure to looked for a slicer and found one that I really liked without overspending my budget. I had tried the slicer last night and I thought it was really cool but I was kind of afraid I might cut my fingers. The blade is very sharp. Every glide of slicing sweet potato takes  very careful hands which I did. 


Oh well, how’s your weather like for today? Its been so cold and breezy all day and it is going to be that way over the next few days. Charles and I played hide & seek and he really had a great time. I told him to count 1-100 when it was my turn to hide which was a good thing for him to learn his numbers even though he already knows how to count 1-100. When it was his turned to hide he kept on giggling and couldn’t stop laughing every time he hid behind the chair in our bed room.



Grateful For The Weather

January 26, 2014

I am so grateful for the weather we had today. The temperature was in the 60’s and we got a chance to enjoy the weather before it gets awful again tomorrow. Played bowling and of course, my hubby scored the highest points. We did not get a chance to ride on go-karts and it was kind of disappointment. The go-karts were already reserved for a birthday party so I decided to play mini-golf. I thought we all had a great time playing bowling and golf then we stopped by at Wal-Mart to get our grocery shopping done. 

Well, it is a very busy night watching shows on television. I usually don’t watch The Bachelor, but tonight was Sean and Catherine’s Wedding on live television and I thought is was kind of interesting. Having so many shows to watch on television at the same time is very confusing thankfully I can record all of them. Before I was very skeptical in adding Whole-Home DVR and now I can’t live without it. 

Anyway, are you all getting excited for the Super Bowl next week? As for me, I am not really a huge fan of the Broncos but I do really like Peyton Manning and Eric Decker. If you haven’t seen Eric Decker play on the field better be as he is a hottie!


Wholesale Purses

|
I love shopping for many things but I enjoy nothing more then shopping for purses, especially wholesale purses from here. Having the perfect bag to match to your outfit and to what you needs are. For example as a mom I like a designer bag but also need one that can carry stuff for my son, Charles. I always like to carry baby wipes, some snacks and a bottle of water for Charles.

Got 2nd Place on Wrestling Tournament

|

January 25, 2014

I am looking forward to tomorrow’s fun-filled family bowling and go cart racing with my boys. Tried go cart racing once before and I really liked it a lot even though some of the kids were bumping into my cart and driving like crazy. Charles was more daredevil than me once he figured out how to drive go cart. Since the weather is in the 60’s tomorrow playing mini-golf could be on the list. 

Well, I kinda had a boring day. Laid in bed all day but I couldn’t sleep at all and it only made my back hurt. Not being able to sleep at all has always been my problem even though I am taking sleeping pills at night. I guess tonight I will read some magazines and stay up very late until I am sleepy. Though it was very good day for my hubby and his wrestlers. The team got 2nd place on their 2 day conference  wrestling tournament which was a very good day. 

They also got a trophy which my hubby took home and I was worried maybe Charles could break it. At least only 3 weeks left before the wrestling season is over. The State Wrestling Tournament is earlier than last year and I can not wait for it to be over. Charles always asked me what time his father going to be home as he only wants his phone so he can play games. 

Aside from that, I also want to drive the car so I can pass the driving test. The first time I took the driving test I did not pass the test perhaps not being familiar with our Ford, Mustang on the road. I have driven our BMW and I can see so much better on the highway. Getting my driver license would be very important as I need to drive Charles when he goes to school this August instead of riding on a school bus. Of course, I can drive anywhere I like and going shopping by myself would be more fun for me and not hearing; lets go home now from Charles and Doug.

Makes My Life So Good

January 23, 2014

Can you believe January is almost over? Time flies very fast and before we know it spring and summer are just around the corner which everyone is looking forward to especially in this chilly weather conditions. Wherever you are right now we are all affected by this frigid weather and has caused so many accidents on the road due to visibility conditions. When I went to the Asian store tonight it was freezing even though I was just out for a few minutes from the car. But its worth it going out as I got some vegetables banana flower, long beans, and sweet potatoes.


Cooked the vegetables earlier and it will be good paired with dried fish. Too bad A’Chau does not have galung-gong and I don’t want to get any other fish than that. Cooking dishes that I grew up eating in the Philippines makes my life so good.

Multiple Languages To Speak Is A Great Skill

|

January 02, 2014

Being a stay-at-home mom to my 5 year old son, my husband Doug has always encourages me to teach our son, Charles how to speak my languages. Before, I thought he was crazy as I don’t want our son to speak my family dialects, Waray-waray and Tagalog. When I  grew up in the Philippines I learned two languages as a kid and then English as I grew older. 

Then, I realized how very important it is for my son to be able to speak our language and be able to communicate and understand other people around him once he visits the Philippines someday. I especially want Charles to be able to talk to his relations like my mom, dad, brother and sister. Not only our dialects but I can also teach my son how to speak different languages using translations services from Rosetta Translation.  

Having multiple languages to speak is just such a great skill to have and to be able to have someone effectively translate languages is a must in today’s modern business world. Regardless of the type of business that you run or even in your personal business having a good handle on many languages is a win win situation for you and your company.

More Gold Sets of Ornaments

|
I had quite a busy day getting some chores done that’s been sitting around over the last few days while we were gone for the holidays. I did a bunch of laundry, hanged clothes, folded the clothes, vacuumed the floors, then I cleaned our bathrooms as well. I also took our Christmas tree down with some help from my little helper named, Charles. Though I really want to do it by myself as I like to keep things organized and neat just the way I wanted them to be. But Charles was very insistent to help in taking off the ornaments from the tree. 


Speaking of ornaments, I bought some more gold sets of Christmas ornaments from Hobby Lobby and it was a great deal. All the Christmas decorations are 80% off and I would love to go back to Hobby Lobby again this afternoon when my hubby gets home. There are some Christmas decorations that I would love to buy but when I was at the store the other day I did not buy them. Besides, 80% off is a great deal after all. This weekend will not be much fun though as my husband has another two day wrestling tournament though at least this is a local tourney it still makes for a long couple of days. Charles will once again miss his Dad like last week when we stayed in Missouri when Doug came back for a two day tournament. I cannot wait till wrestling season is over.
