Jeremy's Birthday

My eldest child, Jeremy, will be celebrating his 11th birthday on December 20 and he already has plans for the day. It will just be a simple celebration with kids in the neighborhood. Maybe other family members will join, too depending on their schedule.

Like last year, we'll have his favorite spaghetti, fried chicken, cake, and ice cream. These are common staples in every Filipino get together. For his gift, he is just requesting a branded basketball so that it is more durable than the cheaper ones.

I don't remember if I have ever mentioned this in the past entries but we just have a simple family. We don't have a lot so I teach my kids to appreciate every gift they are given regardless of the price. He has been wishing for a new bike but I told him it can wait until summer when we have finished paying off important expenses first. I am happy that he understands and is thankful for what we can give him. 😇

Happy weekend and good night! 💗

It's 46 days til Christmas!

It's 46 days til Christmas!

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? I already did some early shopping and bought gifts but I'm not done yet. Mainly because I still need to save up money for shopping 😃

I have always loved online shopping. I used to look for bargains and good deals in eBay. There was a time I spent countless hours just adding things to my shopping cart and then deleting them before I logout. 😂 It was just fun doing some virtual window shopping and then realizing at the end of the day, that I didn't really need whatever that thing is.

Fast forward to present times, I  have moved on to Lazada and then just a few days, I signed up for Shoppee. I have heard about it from my friends on Facebook so I decided to give it a try. There are a lot of good deals as well and as a matter of fact, I am waiting for my orders to arrive.

I still feel sleepy because I slept for just a few hours. I waited for the online revolution to start by midnight and then spent an hour looking for great deals. Great news because I found a lot of great items on sale.

I still have a lot of shopping to do and my next stop, SM City Fairview's sale on November 18 and 19.

I really wish my wallet (and hubby's) catch up with my plans (LOL).

Contest Winner again!

I love joining online contests. Some might say I'm addicted to it. Well, who wouldn't be. In just a few clicks, likes, and shares here and there, you might just be a winner. it doesn't even matter if the prize is big or not.

I got a pleasant surprise when I checked my email recently and found out that I won P500 worth of Gift Certificate from Cudsly! I replied to the email, said my thanks and off I went to check their website again!

There are lots of great items to choose from and what's nice is that you get free shipping for orders worth P500 and above. If you sign up on the website, you get 20% off on your next purchase. Of course I signed up and I'm hoping to get the discount soon.

It was hard to choose the items because there's a lot of great items for kids of all ages. Finally, I decided to purchase 2 Happy Puffs and Suave 3-in-1 shampoo. I just paid the excess amount and chose Cash on Delivery (COD). Shipping was fast too as I think it was less than 3 days before I received my order.

My 10-month old baby enjoyed his Happy Puffs and even my two older kids couldn't resist but take a handful too. They also love the Apple scent of the shampoo.

I'll be sure to check their website again as they carry a lot of items that are not readily available in our local supermarkets or department stores. Thanks again, Cudsly!

Freebies: Magazines

I so love freebies! I have blogged about the freebies or raffle prizes that I have been fortunate to win in the past. Mostly small items but still the idea of getting something in the mail for free is already something to be thankful for. I am subscribed to GirlTalk and there is a thread where members post links of freebies or contests that other GTers might be interested in joining.

 I came across the website's banner that says Free copy of Good Housekeeping via buqo. To get the free issue, download the buqo app via Android or App Store, install and register an account. Go to the Store Magazine section and look for the banner "Free This Week" at the top of the page. You may then get the free digital copies of the book or magazine. So far, I have downloaded free copies of Real Living, Good Housekeeping, and 2 issues of Yummy magazine. Good deals, eh?

 I am always on the lookout for freebies or contests to join and when I find anything, I'll post it here and you may post in the comments too, if you know a good deal :)

Back To The Habit

Hello there! After years of blogging hiatus, I am back and hopefully, will start posting again regularly. I have been busy with my family and work so I had to take a time off, and a long one at that. A lot of things have happened and for one, I now have 3 kids. My youngest child is just 6 months old and quite a handful. We have no helper for 2 years now but it's a good thing that my mother helps me out in taking care of the kids. So one can imagine how difficult it could be to juggle a full time work, taking care of the family, and keeping myself sane LOL! I hope that with my return, I can post more and share my thoughts about anything under the sun. P.S. It's good to be back :)

Look who's back! Of course it's me! I can't believe it's been months since I last posted here and it will be Christmas very soon!

I have't updated this page for a very long time. I guess I just didn't feel like writing anything and most of my free time is spent at home with my family. But of course, I missed writing down my not so daily musings.

By the way, thanks to those who visited my page and definitely I'll blog hop too when I'm not busy.

Be back later. Work mode first.

It is Sunday. However, I have tons to do and also have work tonight at 10PM. Yep, I don't have a restday but since I'm just working from home, I don't mind it at all. Hubby and I don't have plans to go anywhere today so we'll just relax and hopefully, I can get some sleep. Tomorrow, I have to go to Fortune Care for our annual physical exam. We also plan to bring the kids to a dentist for check-up. 24hrs is really not enough for a busy bee like me LOL!

For the rest who have a normal schedule, enjoy the rest of the day! Chill!
