Dressing up for Halloween is my children’s favorite thing to do. For weeks before Halloween actually comes they are always changing in and out of their costumes trying to decide if there is anything they can do to make their costumes better. This year Haley is going to be a frog, Anna is going to be a snowman, Lucas is going to be a shark, and Hayden is going to be a a goat. When we start our trick or treating adventures the first place we take the kids is to their grandparents. The kids usually quickly become tired of taking pictures but the grandparents insists they must take a million. After leaving the grandparents we take the kids back to our neighborhood that has over 500 houses and let the kids trick or treat for a couple of hours. When their buckets get full they know it is time to go home. And they never complain about going home because one of their favoirte parts of Halloween is going home and watching their favorite Halloween movie on satellite TV from For years to come I think Halloween will always be the children’s favorite holiday.

Well, sorry Ms Kaye, I missed 2 weeks of GT. I cannot hink of the “FUnniest” and most “Suspense” books that I have read. I am into romance novels, that’s why I skipped those 2 topics. Now that we are talking about the all time favorite. I have so many of those.

Mostly, Johanna Lindsey books are my all time fave.

 imageThe most desirable beauty in the land, wildly unpredictable Megan Penworthy has set her amorous sights on Ambrose St James, Duke of Wrothston – a man she has never met but has every intention of marrying. No other suitor will satisfy her – especially not the common, if uncommonly handsome, horsebreeder, Devlin Jefferys. Posing as lowborn Jefferys to escape a potentially fatal confrontation, Ambrose is enthralled and infuriated by the brazen, duke-hunting redhead. Without revealing his true identity, the notorious rogue vows to foil Megan’s plans to wed the man of her dreams – never imagining the enchanting schemer would turn out to be the only woman he would ever dream of marrying.”

I would’ve put 8 books, but I went to K’s site and she said “ ONE BOOK” only. This is  my all time favorite that I re- read all the time.. I am so romantic and I love to read. I am reading NORA ROBERTS now that I ran out of Johanna Lindsey.. I might start buying books online to add to my collection..

There you go, I am an addict..oh well…who’s not if you read great books…

Happy Reading!!

mom, roan roz .. all those unwanted fat that I gained during pregnancy. I cannot imagine how swollen I was while swaddling during the time I was carrying Alexandara 3 years ago. After I had her, I had been looking to buy weight loss pills online to get rid of nasty extra weight and if I hadn’t been successful, I would probably still look like a rhino up to now. Losing weight is not easy, but it’s not hard if you focus your mind on doing what needs to be done. Search and will power will help you attain your goal. There is always a choice when it comes to looking great, either you do it or you don’t. As simple as that..


We have a brand new nephew and his name is Wade Matthew Barnett, born October 24,2010. 5.12 lbs and 18 inches long, in Huntsville Women’s and Children’s Hospital.

We came and visited him at the hospital today and he is super cute. Ike (his dad) is Rodney’s brother and Denise (his mom) is my sister in law and they are proud parents of Wade. They are going home tonight. Now, there are 2 boy Barnetts in William’s generation of grandkids. First is Roan and now it’s Wade. Barnett rules!!!!!!

Welcome to the  world  of Nintendo, Xbox, PSP and Facebook, Wade!

image If you are on my Facebook account, you would know that I love taking pictures, of my kids. I used to have a regular 35mm camera and I spent decent amount of money to have my films developed, but I enjoyed it a lot. I may not be the best photographer in town, but I love to take pictures of my kids. Now, I have a simple digital camera, but I am so dreaming of having one of this Canon camera that would take me to the next level of my being an amateur photographer. If you go to and browse on their weekly deals page , you will find something that you will love, just like I did. I love this Canon EOS REbel T2i 18 megapixel Digital LSR Camera. Great Christmas present for myself huh!


.. if I knew what I was doing. I had my order delivered 2 weeks ago from the Phil Am store in New Jersey and I got so excited. I ordered 30 packages of Pancit Bihon, that would last me a year without buying noodles. Due to excitement, I started ripping the tape with my keys that I had on hand when I got the package. I was fighting with the key when my son came to me and asked me why was I using my key to open the box, he told me that we have a box cutter and it would make my life easier if I used it. Whew! I guess, I never thought about it, all I was thinking was my noodles and I was not thinking..


Now you know, what are they going to be on Halloween. My kids are always excited to try their costumes on. Roan will be the Witch Doctor, Wrozlie The Witch and AJ The Kitty Cat.

Come join us on the 30th for our Halloween Costume party and have fun!!!

When I was working in  a Department store, I was given a nameplate that had to wear everyday so that people know who I am. Every store have their own style and sometimes I wonder where do they order those stylish and so unique designs. You can also see some labels that only your particular company carries. Custom Label such as warning labels, instructional labels on how to operate a piece of machinery can also be made in  a certain way. Even a barcode was custom made by some graphic companies for it’s uniqueness and originality.

image image In the military, there are so many custom labels that you will come by, you probably won’t notice it but each and every label has it’s specification. Industrial and commercial businesses use different kinds of labels for their products. It could be Aluminum, metal plate , warning  decals or anything that you can see with letters on it. Different sizes, style, pattern and also the type of material they used. It’s nice to learn all the labels that you use to be aware if it’s flammable or not. Just something to keep in mind..

Yes Folks, finally, she was able to survive the stroke and she’s now going home. Thanks a lot for the prayers and all the help that we got from super generous people. I wonder why she is  being sent home. I guess, she was recommended to recuperate at home. The medicine was able to melt the blood clot that blocked the veins close to her eyes.

In behalf of our family, we would like to thank all the people who helped us go through this ordeal. Those who didn’t even know us but sent us money to help with our aunt’s medicine that helped prolong her life. We cannot give you anything in return, but I know God will. Once again, thank you from the very bottom of our hearts.




Thank you to all these Generous Bloggers who sent their prayers on my aunt’s way and helped  and made a difference in my aunt’s life..

  • 100_4390 I remember when I was in high school, I go in front of the mirror and try to scrutinize my face. How can people have  blackheads on nose and can these be avoided by washing your face constantly? I used to squeeze them when I was younger, and from time to time if I see some today on my nose, I still love to squeeze them out. I know that it’s bad for me, but I enjoy seeing it coming out of my skin pores. My dad used to squeeze his whiteheads on his nose, but how come others have blackheads, what’s the difference I may ask? Anyway, I am glad that I don’t have that much problem now, only from time to time..
