Christmas Mini Session With My Dear Friend and Her Daughter.

Hi all, I have been MIA for days on my blog. I had been a busy and exhausted mom for days. School is out for Thanksgiving break, and you (parent/parents) know what that means. My boys are like “mommy, mommy, mommy all day long.” Especially my little one, he can talk all day long for sure. The only time I have a break from them is when they are napping and when they are in bed at night, hehe. But I love them to the moon and back.


Anyway, last Saturday, I had so much fun capturing my dear friend and her daughter’s Christmas mini session. You can check this session here. The location I chose was the Dilliard’s store. It was a perfect location for this session. Dilliard’s has a wide variety of lovely Christmas decorations throughout their store. It was just perfect!

Check out my photography page and let me know what you think.

Have you ever heard of the Nygard brand? I’m wearing Nygard denim pants. When it comes to pants, I have been a Nygard’s biggest fan for 4 years now. I love every Nygard leggings and pants that I have. So worth the price! You should try this brand. I highly recommend this brand.

The photographer must pose too, lol!

I NEED TO LAUGH: Today’s Funniest Quote Picks

Who else wants to laugh? I need it this morning. You want to know why? Well, if you are a mother who has little boys that do not get along with each other well, you probably understand why I need to laugh this very early morning. Getting up early to have them ready for school, fix them breakfast, and give them their school money to buy a snack and drink during recess time, however, when asking them one thing (and I mean one thing only), they wouldn’t listen without complaining first. Seriously? I remember growing up; I didn’t complain much like my kids now. Growing up, my parents and grandparents always reminded us of the words “obey first before you complain.” Most kids nowadays like to complain first before obeying. I don’t say that it happens every day, not it doesn’t. However, when it happens, it’s almost too much!

After I dropped them at their school, I was talking to my self while driving back home. I was telling myself that I need to laugh. I need something that will make me laugh to brighten up my morning. So, when I got home, I looked up for the funniest quotes online. There’s a lot of funny quotes I read, but these quotes below are the most hilarious. It worked! I laughed, and it lightens up my mood. I hope these quotes will make you laugh, as well. Have a beautiful and blessed day!

A Little Gardening Afternoon + AZUL COCONUT WATER

Hi guys, how’s your weekend so far? I hope everybody is having a good weekend. About me, I was a little tied up all day. I went to the mall and bought some back to school clothes for my boys. After that, I drove back home, did a little cleaning and a little organizing in both of my boys’ rooms. Once I was done there, I did the laundry too (it’s laundry day), Friday laundry!

After Sean’s work, we went to Wal-Mart and got some landscaping bricks and bags of soil for my little garden. By the way, the bricks are on clearance for $1.00 each. I told Sean that this is the best time to buy bricks. Whenever we decide to move somewhere, we have bricks for gardening, Hahahahaha sounds funny? Well, I’m serious!

KALABO (Philippine Oregano)
Kangkong (Water Spinach)
Malunggay (I transferred them to a bigger pot).
Basil

After working in my garden for an hour and a half I was really thirsty. I’m introducing my newest favorite drink. Not just my favorite but also Sean’s. It’s the AZUL COCONUT WATER from Dollar Tree. This drink has chunks of coconut pieces in it (which I love the most!)

Back home in the Philippines, we always drink coconut juice anytime it was available or offered to us. I’m not sure if you’re aware of it or not but coconut juice has a lot of health benefits to it. If you’re not aware of all the good benefits that coconut juice can give to our body, then it’s time to do a little research.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF COCONUT WATER:

  • Reduce blood pressure.
  • Support heart health.
  • Prevent kidney stones (very true, I experienced having this problem at such a young age. Drinking coconut juice helped a lot).
  • Have antioxidant properties
  • Have benefits against diabetes.

Coconut water is a great way to rehydrate after working out or after gardening, as I did. There are many more health benefits of coconut water which you can read about here.

DIRECTIONS:

  • Chill and shake well for better flavor.

INGREDIENTS:

  • Yong Coconut Water
  • Water
  • Sugar
  • Coconut Meat
  • Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose
  • Malic Acid and Sodium Metabisulphite
So thirsty after working in my little garden at the backyard.
AZUL COCONUT WATER

Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed weekend!

Dollar Tree Day:Dollar Tree Finds

Good Monday to all! How was your weekend? Hope you had a great weekend. About me and my family, yes we had a great weekend. Today is Monday January 7th and my boys are back to school. Oh gosh, I didn’t want to get up early. I’m a night owl person not an early bird. It’s all good though, that’s life!

I have a question, how many of you like going to Dollar Tree store? I do love Dollar Tree. I go there three times a week or sometimes more. There’s so much merchandise that I love from that store.

My boys are in school so I decided to go and get something from Dollar Tree. However, I did not get a lot today. Just a few of my favorite things to pick up every time when I’m there, it’s candles and chocolates! LOL. Not just candles and chocolates for today though. I luckily found these notebooks that say “LITTLE, BUT FIERCE and GIRL BOSS”. I love it, love it, love it! I think I got them on time before it was all gone. These are the last two notebooks left.

Little, But FIERCE

Not only that I like this notebook, but I love what it says. It’s so me! Hey, I’m 4″11, everyone calls me tiny, little, skinny and whatever. Yes I’m little, but I’m fierce!
