One Week From Today


September 14, 2014

One week from today, is Charles’ 6th birthday and he is getting more excited every day. He keeps asking if he has to go to school on his birthday and I said; no your birthday is Sunday. I guess when your 5 and your birthday is coming you really looking forward to that day to see what presents you are going to get. I never felt that when I was a kid. My birthday was always just an ordinary day, nothing to look forward to each year and no presents to open, haha. 

As for his presents, my sister’s-in-law, already got him a foosball table from Wal-Mart and Doug, is going to pick it up on Tuesday after practice. He has other presents from us and his aunts to open when we celebrate his birthday on Saturday. Celebrating this birthday is kind of bittersweet knowing my sister-in-law, Cheryl was diagnosed with bone cancer. The worst part is; it is already stage 4 but I’m sure she can fight and be strong for what she’s going through right now. 

Charles is going to be her biggest cheer leader and so will her other family members. When we found out when Cheryl, has bone cancer this week it was very devastating and it was hard to look at on my husband’s face. I knew he handled the news well though deep inside he’s really hurting and so am I. It’s just hard to think what the future is; knowing how many lives have already been lost because of cancer since I came here in the U.S. For now, all we can do is pray and hope for the best outcome on her chemotherapy.

Huge Savings on Vouchers and Promo Codes Online


September 3, 2014

My son, 6th birthday is only three weeks away from today as I write this. With so many toys he already has buying gifts for him can be really difficult sometimes. Instead of going to the store browsing every aisle, it would be great if I could buy all his gifts online. As an online shopper, I always make sure to look for vouchers and promo codes on the brands and products that I am going to buy for my son, and my husband as well as myself. 

Why spend more money, when you could pay less than the actual advertised price? Not only are you saving money for your favorite brands and products you use every day you are also enjoy knowing you got a great deal on your purchase or purchases. With a single income in our family saving money is very important to my husband and to me as well. If you are looking for any products and brands for yourself, family, or loved ones including but not limited to fashion, electronics, toys, or home d├ęcor, offers up to 75% off savings on vouchers and promo codes. 

Just recently, I found a great deal on buying my son, Charles some new clothes for school this year. Charles is 5 years old and he just started kindergarten this year. Of course, Charles, does not really like shopping for clothes so it was great to be able to just buy all his clothes on line. Well, after his first two weeks of school Charles, is doing really great in school and really likes going to school each day. Of course, he likes recess the best but has also really enjoyed reading, art and just being with the kids and making new friends. Most of all, he looks good as well with all the clothes I bought him.

Charles NASCAR Cars Collection


September 1, 2014

I was looking for family photos for Charles to take with him to school for his class photo book when I noticed I was about to make a blog post about his NASCAR cars collection months ago. Geez! I can not believe how much he accumulated through the years with  these cars aside from his Hot Wheels, Matchbox, trucks, and other cars. After the photo was taken we bought him about 50 NASCAR cars when we went to Alma, Arkansas for their annual Flea Market sale (about 100 miles long). 

Driving down to Alma, was very scenic. It will be even more beautiful in the fall. I told Doug, I would love to go back there again sometime in the fall. Fall is one of my favorite seasons of the year. The trees changing colors of its leaves are very beautiful to look at. Anyway, looking for things that we might find something interesting was out of luck on that huge Flea Market sale until we stopped by at the real Flea Market Store. In there we found lots of NASCAR cars for a decent price. 

Charles was very happy as he was having good luck. That’s what he said to himself. With his birthday past-approaching Doug, already knows what to get him for his birthday, a Nerf N-Strike Elite Retaliator Blaster. It would be a perfect present for his birthday as he is into making paper guns lately. As for my present for him, I really don’t know what to buy for him. He already has so many toys even when its not his birthday he always got something though they say; you can’t have too many. 

I Adore Christmas

I adore Christmas and has since I was a little kid. One of the things I love about the season is decorating and putting up our tree every year. While I love those sentimental ornaments I also love doing something new and exciting each year.  One of the things I love to do is buy new radko ornaments each year to add variety to our tree. My boys love to decorate the tree as much as me and love setting it up, which is a family tradition.
