Nice To Know You Wednesday # 12

This is the first time that I’ll be participating in NTKYW and I hope this will be something that I’ll be able to do every week. This meme aims to allow bloggers to share a little something about themselves by answering five simple questions.



Here are this week’s questions:

1.) Which store would you choose to max out your credit card ?

* I do not have a credit card but if I do have one I would most probably use it on whatever my kids can use especially those that can help them with their school work. I can’t resist books, so I think I will stay away from bookstores if I have a credit card with me.

2.) Do you touch-type?

* Although I would like to be able to do that with confidence, I feel I can type faster while doing it the only way I know (which is looking at the keyboard as I type).

3.) Is there anything going on this weekend ?

* Yes, there is ! It’s going to be our 16th Wedding Anniversary this Saturday, so it’s a special weekend for us. (No definite plans yet, but still, I’m grateful for such as great blessing).

4.) What time do you get up in the morning?

* On weekdays, I wake up at 4:30 am because I have to prepare my son’s baon for school. He needs to be at school by 6:30am. If I do not have anything urgent to do, I would usually go back to sleep by 6am then wake up at around 8 am and have breakfast with hubby and start with the day’s chores.

5.) Are you a morning person or a night owl?

* I would say both.

Whew! That’s it. Simple, right ? I hope I did ok. And I  hope you can also join us every week.

Happy International Women’s Day to all the ladies out there especially to all the amazing moms around the world !

Saving Up For Christmas

This is my entry to the Week 21 of the Techie She Lucky Blogger Weekly Giveaways. This week’s prize is $10 Paypal credits from Shydub of Impulsive Shopper.

Thanks to the daily Christmas countdown that we see on TV, my children are encouraged to save their extra money so that they can buy something special on Christmas day. They would constantly talk about what they would buy if they are able to save enough money. If I hear them talking about something that is really expensive, I remind them to be more realistic so that they won’t be disappointed if they don’t end up buying them. But sometimes they would tell me that since it’s Christmas, anything is possible. Well, I can’t argue with them on that.

It is also heartening to know that they are thinking of what they could give to their lolo and lola (their grandparents) for Christmas. They plan to give something special, something that their grandparents would surely love. Hmmmm….I wonder what it could be….


With Christmas just 55 days away, I’m sure you that most of you already have plans of what you would do during the Holidays. And like us, you may already be thinking of how you would go about with your Christmas shopping. For now, let me be among the first ones to wish you, “A Very Merry Christmas!”

Techie She’s Lucky Blogger Weekly Giveaways Week #5

 This is my entry to Techie She’s Lucky Blogger Weekly Giveaways Week No. 5. This week’s prize is one year free blog hosting sponsored by MaBelle of Treasure Box


This will be the second time that I’ll be joining this meme; the first time I joined (which was last week), I posted my entry on my other blog.

Anyway, I have been sitting here, trying to compose an entry for this meme and trying to come up with the best way to discuss what I treasure most in life when I was interrupted by my youngest son because he is being teased again by his kuya. A minute ago they were laughing about something and playing with their Transformers and the next minute, they’re fighting about something—again. Well, that’s the way things are in this household, you’ll never know when a quiet evening can suddenly turn into something similar to a war zone.

But I love them no matter what. My family is what I treasure most life; the very reason why I wake up every morning and face the day with a smile in my heart no matter how stressful that day can be. They motivate me to be the best person that I can be. And I will always be grateful to God for giving me this ‘treasure’.
