Before I go to bed

My eyes are so heavy already but still fighting it though. Before going to bed I must rush and check out this raleigh accounting firm. A friend who recently moved to NC is looking for one since it’s almost the end of the year and before we know it tax season will just be around the corner. I know very well the feeling of doing things at the last minute, it’s not fun at all. Since she knows I’m into blogging and bumps into different companies most of the time, she thought I can help her with some feedback. Alright so I will check it out first and send her the link later.

Busy days ahead

Window shopping

One of the things I enjoy doing online is window shopping. You see, we can actually hop through multiple stores all at the same time without the hassle. I do enjoy visiting different home decorating store, I often end up having this bucket list of items I want to have. I have to say home decors for the kitchen are really my thing. Stuff you can place in your China, bottles and glasses of different sizes, colors and shapes, I simply adore them! I know a lot of moms can relate to me on this one. We just love the best job in the world which is being a home-maker, the best we can be.

Pizza Girl

She knows what she want, and she want cheese pizza and bread sticks! haha. She can eat them everyday if we allow her but we don't. Kids sometimes are so finicky and they stick in one thing and get bored all of a sudden, if they want that one thing all they ask is that one thing haha for a period of time. In contrary for the boy he likes pepperoni and cheese. Once a week or so we had a pizza night, and they get all excited of course kids and pizzas get a long very huh! If your kids are finicky as well, pizza might be excluded, the only food you can't go wrong! Wink.

The cure for the finicky little Missy : Funbites Review

Feeding two kids is fun but definitely a challenged as well. I’d like to give them hearty, homemade meals every time as much as possible, yet sometimes the very food they like to eat are the ones from the fast food. Not to mention they tend to be so finicky especially with vegetables. The little Missy enjoys food but choosy as well, it should be desirable to her eyes or else she’ll refuse to even give it a try. So to beat the fuss over food, I looked for ways to make her plate eye-candy. With the help of course of some essential tools such as Funbites.

They are pieces of plastics with different shapes that come with a curved blade cutter that’s able to create small, fun bites. I have here several shapes but the little miss loves ‘Luv it!’ This mold creates a big heart and so as several tiny ones. As you can see in the photo above, strawberries look extra tempting and fun to eat. Vegetables like squash, potatoes, etc looks pretty as well when they are turned into cute-shaped tidbits.

Moms out there, I definitely recommend keeping this tool in handy. If your little ones see such a happy and fun platter, they can be finicky no more. Winks!

Flu season

Just a reminder for moms out there since it is flue season is just around the corner, do not forget to give our lil ones their flu shots or flu mist for their protection. It is really hard watching them to get sick so one thing we can do is prevention! I just had my kiddos their flu mists, i chose this rather than shots because i can't stand them being poke by those painful needles! :(. I recommend mists for little toddlers, it's so easy just inhale the mists in just a matter of seconds and that's it no screaming and upsetting. You can ask your doctors about it or they will recommend it for you! Either way would be good whichever comfortable huh!

Noodle & Boo Review

They say having a baby will make you feel younger, can I add something? I think having kids will make you feel and look younger as well. The special kind of bond a mom has towards her kids is indescribable but definitely it shows. Young and fragile as they are, we mothers will make sure to give them nothing but the best as much as possible. And that includes using products that are safe and gentle to their young and sensitive skin. Noodle & Boo is one example. Their line of baby skin care and maternity products are formulated to be safe for babies and pregnant moms. I actually used their elasticity oil when I was conceiving. It prevented stretch marks and got rid of itchy belly so well! I also need to mention about their extra gentle shampoo, it does well to make my little girl’s locks soft, lovely, and healthy. What about their super soft lotion? The little girl especially loves it, she makes sure to pat it all over after bath like a real grown up Missy. LOL!

Noodle & Boo baby care and maternity products are indeed cool and lovely essentials for mothers and the little ones. No wonder a lot of celebrity moms recommend them too. Winks!

Blast Weekend

The kids had a blast last Saturday! We went for a ride to Nashville and visited for the second time around the centennial park where the Parthenon of Athena located. Park was packed had a wedding and band singing! The girl and boy got to roamed around and freely like a bird in the sky, haha. Then we found a train display at the east part of the park as well a military plane, twas really cool! My boy had to explore and experienced about the history of the state, well thus would be added to his home schooling extra curricular activities and his time spending on this kind of field trip are credited to his hours, so pretty cool, huh? We love this! They're just like me love outdoors and adventure! Wink!

Hows your weekend by the way?

Time passed by so fast, I can still remember when our plans of moving to FL were first brought up by the in laws. We were anxious, excited, optimistic, mixed emotions we then had. Now it’s really happening and today my bro-in-law and his wife are leaving. They are going ahead of us that’s why they are so busy right at this moment I know, they might be packing their luggage already and their stuff including wall cabinets stuff.  We are going to be so busy in the coming of days but at the same time looking forward to what’s in store over there. Anyway, got to go for now, will sort still cluttered stuff in the the rooms, it’s long overdue I have to do it today. See ya later!

She got a taste

I am talking about my 3 year old daughter, i tell you the girl got the taste of her own already, lol. I was window shopping online looking for outerwear for them and we both sat down on the chair, when i bumped to this super cute toddlers jacket, she screamed and said " I WANT THAT MOM" what a fashionista! She love the style of course and the color she likes it yellow, actually there are three different colors but she managed to like this in such a short noticed! She's bugging me to get it with matching please, please! haha. Just can't get enough with her reaction when she sees beautiful girly stuff, oh well she's always on the line!

Our lil girl adores princesses, she thought she's one of them and we always tells her that she is our lil princess! She gives us smile as she hears that phrases. So daddy came up an idea to build a princess bed, twas last year that daddy finished it in just a matter of week because his princess A is so excited about it!  What he did was built a castle bed with all the extra accessories on it! He did the foundation and designed, meanwhile momshe did the paintings. It matched her room purple and pink, lol. Then i glued some crystal beaded stickers here and there so that it will really look like a princess castle. Plus the princess bedding's of course for the final look. There's a crown and arches.

Wine making is cool!

The process of making wine calls for plenty of time, expertise, and a whole lot of talent but you know what, you can actually make a wine of your own nowadays. There are wine making kits, for example the ones from Wine expert that allows you to formulate your own flavor and aroma. The kit includes 10 liters of pure varietal grape juice and concentrations. I don’t drink, well occasionally but it’s quite interesting to know it’s possible. You see, it allows you to experiment flavors and lessen alcohol content, store it in fancy bottles and have it as your collection or as a beautiful present. Nice!

Doctor's Appointment

Seems kids still feeling sick for the past 2 weeks since we arrived from Florida they have this colds that's hard to go away! We thought of being stress from traveling is a one big factor of them not feeling good. So we decided to call up their doctor because getting worried about something is more serious! Wednesday had their appointments, to our nice surprised the doctor stated that they are totally fine, nothing much to be worry about, their immune system are fighting and their respiratory is clear! Not enough to take antibiotic doctor said. So i am relieved.

Mom Time

On the weekend while the husband is home i usually have a lonesome moment with myself, i get to relax and just chill and the rest leave it to the daddy, haha. Last Sunday what i did was pampering my nails, i did some manicure and try some nail polish on. I ended up this style that i very much loved. It reminds me back home when i was in college my mom hires her personal manicurist and pedicurist and sissy and i also wanted to clean our toes and hands, that was fun time for us three Maria's.  Since am away from them i learned to do it myself! This style is like a french nail although instead the traditional french nail design there's a twist, pretty sure my mom knows the name. Wink!
