For the past couple of weeks, CSI Miami has also become one of my favorites. Actually, my husband was the first one who got addicted to it. Even my friends at work are into it. They would talk about it first thing in the morning. One day I decided to watch it at full length when I was rocking Kaiden to sleep. From then on, I've been watching it religiously with my dear hubby. Although, I must say, not as consistently as with American Idol. I like its clever plots, the stories' twists and turns. CSI Miami and American Idol deserve DIRECTV Awards.

Oh, this one is a beauty! I like everything about it. The style and color define elegance. My husband may not like the color. He may like the one below instead. It's called LUCA. Again, it's by ROM. Both of them project sophistication. They're offered by Concept Furniture and they also have closets, bedroom sets, entertainment centers that are of superb quality and unmatched style.

Anyway, here's how a topsy turvy tomato tree look.
Cool, huh? :)

Oh, you just won't believe how scared I was when a deer suddenly jumped off the road where I was cruising! A number of accidents happen because of deer crossing the road out of nowhere. Good thing, I was spared. I told my husband about it, and he said usually it's a family of deer, and not just one that crosses the road. That's when most accidents occur.
Speaking about deer, they are one of those animals that can cause damage to your plants. I never thought about until I heard of the deer repellent called Deer Off Sprayer. I thought it was only the rabbits, squirrels and other insects that normally ruin your garden. Deer can actually cause ticks and Lyme disease! I'm glad I found this awesome tool. I've started to do gardening and as a beginner, I would want my plants to survive as much as possible. It's battery operated and that provides much convenience to every gardener like me. It will certainly reduce hand fatigue. Rain or shine, this sprayer can resist weather change up to 90 days. Another great thing about it is that it can be used for organic gardening which I'm into. I have little children and as much as possible I would want them to eat vegetables and fruit that are organic for they are said to be healthier and taste better. Having discovered this, I would also need to tell my friend about it. Her newly planted flowers had just been ruined by a rabbit few days ago.

Uh-oh! I think baby Kaiden just eliminated an air poop. And I can see his brother Noah smiling naughtily on the corner. :)
My former co-worker had a garage sale on a weekend. A lot of people had come by to buy used but still good items from her. After just a couple of days, her house was robbed. She was at work then when she received a phone call from her husband asking where his collection of guns was. She didn't have a clue what he was saying. She left work early and as soon as she got home, she realized that they had been robbed. They filed a police report right away. They had homeowners insurance and that helped them a little bit with the loss. At the same time, she called ADT to have a security system installed at their house.
Right now, ADT is offering a FREE ADT-Monitored Home Security System saving you an amount of $850. Millions of homes and most Fortune companies use ADT. They have been in the business for more than 130 years now making it the TOP home alarm company around. No one can top their service and technology advancements. Due to fear that it could happen to her as well, another co-worker of mine decided to have a security system installed in her house as well. I can't blame her.
Ever since I was a teen-ager, I've always loved to wear bracelets. I guess I got that fondness from my Mom who loves collecting jewelry especially ones made from gold. She's serious in investing in gold. She would always tell me that it's a good investment. I remember when I was young, I would sneak in my parents' bedroom and open her drawer to see which bracelet I could use for an occasion, or even just for every day use. Most of the time, it was without her permission. Since I was young and careless, there were times that I'd lose them because I forgot where I put them! I'd either get reprimanded, or my Mom would just sigh out of disbelief.
If you're thinking of investing, gold is a smart choice. It is considered a valuable asset. It can't be devalued by the government unlike the Dollar. The value of Dollar has been depreciating, but gold remains stable. In fact, more and more people are investing in gold because it hasn't experienced any huge drop in value. The $20 Saint Gaudens Double Eagle MS 65 as shown in the photo above has been considered one of the most beautifully designed coins ever minted. If you need more information about investing in gold, there's a FREE Gold Guide from Gold Made Easy that you can avail of.

It is an open group so anyone can join and unite in prayer. Updates on her recovery are also available when you join the group. I believe in the power of prayers. And that, miracles do happen. Let's all please pray for this little girl and her family as well.
Whenever we would go out on a long trip or vacation, we'd worry about our dogs and cat who'd be left behind. Two years ago, we put our doggies, Bridget and Sofie in a pet motel when we went on a vacation to Washington. Our cat, Abby stayed home and was taken cared of by our neighbor's kids. Last year, our friend's teenage son took care of our dear pets, fed them on schedule and put them out several times a day. We have two active dogs who need to be out to go potty, and play in our fenced backyard. They love to run around and chase each other until they wear themselves out. For this year, we haven't decided yet whether to put in a pet motel, or let our friendly neighbor watch them again for us. Our budget would most probably be the deciding factor here.

How can a Sunday school teacher and a mother herself do this to a child?
Sunday school teacher arrested for killing girl, eight, found stuffed in suitcase may also be charged with rape
Photo and story by Mail Foreign Service
A woman Sunday school teacher arrested for the kidnap and murder of an eight-year-old girl may also be charged with the child's rape, it emerged today. Melissa Huckaby, 28, was detained on Friday after the body of Sandra Cantu was found stuffed in a suitcase at the bottom of a pond. The little girl had lived just five doors away from Huckaby and was a playmate of the woman's five-year-old daughter Madison. Police have not disclosed how Sandra was killed and gave no details of the evidence that led prosecutors to consider sexual assault allegations. But San Joaquin County Deputy District Attorney Robert Himmelblau said a murder charge could include the special circumstances of rape, lewd and lascivious conduct with a child and murder in the course of a kidnapping.

With the trip, we would need a big, reliable luggage. Well, with two kids, we would definitely need more than one. Village Luggage and Gifts is a luggage store that offers designer luggage at the most affordable price. In fact, they have items on sale right now. It's what they call a Spring Sale and prices can go as low as 50% off, and even more. There's FREE shipping and monogramming for most items. The photo above is a Dorado Columbian Leather collection. I like the unique tan color, but most especially its known durability. Not only does Village Luggage sell designer luggage, they also have a wide selection of desk accessories, corporate gifts, and other leather goods to choose from.

We had ham, egg and fried rice for breakfast. For a balanced meal, we also had strawberries and banana. Noah asked for a Strawberry shake so I made him one and Kaiden, too. After eating, we would normally go downstairs to play and watch their favorite shows and videos like the Little Leaps. Baby Kaiden would dance as soon as he hears music. His brother Noah would join the fun. I just enjoy watching them play and do fun stuff together. So cute! :)

Well, this time it wasn't great as I was expecting it to be. I've been posting recipes that I tried myself, and tasted spectacular as well. (that's according to my family's palate:)). I tried this recipe from Kraftfoods because it was easy to follow like what the name suggests, and because it got a 5 star rating from most people who tried it. Unfortunately, it didn't do it for me. Flavor was just strange. I guess it's because I used a different brand of balsamic vinaigrette. Would that really make a big difference? Oh well.. to each his own. :)

Aside from a huge sign saying "sale", another thing that makes me want to check out a store is their attractive or striking display. Gilbert Displays is well-known for its superior quality designs and craftsmanship. If you want to showcase a product and demonstrate its features, you can set up a trade show exhibit with the expertise of Gilbert Displays. They do trade show exhibits that would surely capture your attention. I was browsing their site, and I must say that I was awed by their unique and spectacular designs. Truly world class!

Couple of months ago, my husband asked me to put some money back on the stock market. I remember asking him repeatedly if it's the right time. You know, we lost some money in the market because of the recession. And, I was afraid that we'd lose more money and go downhill! My husband was confident that it was going to be better. It went down deep and it can only go up, and won't go any further down. Relying on my husband's knowledge and expertise, I went ahead and invested our money. Weeks passed by. My husband was right! We're pleased that we were slowly gaining back what we lost. I was totally impressed with my husband's expertise of the market. I'm glad we made that quite risky, but smart move.

lol! Oh, yeah! When the potty chair is in the other room or is not readily accessible, we use the can for him to pee on. They say kids love the sound it makes so that makes potty training easier. Others suggest to put Cheerios as targets. In the video though, the can Noah wanted to pee on was baby Kaiden's new can of milk. Of course, he couldn't use that. hehe! :) Anyway, I love watching them interact with each other. It's so sweet and funny. :)

Yohoo! Oh, I'm so happy that they won! Despite the frigid weather condition, Wizards defeated San Jose with a 2-0 score. After scoring his first goal for the season, Claudio Lopez, an international star player for the Wizards, ran towards my dear hubby and gave him a warm, sincere hug. He knew that my husband had been grieving over the loss of his stepbrother to an accident last week. It was a wonderful moment in which a class athlete showed the character of true friendship and compassion. It meant a great deal to my husband.

When the time comes that we would go on a Alaska Travel, we would definitely check on the famous Denali Park. I'm excited to see the wildlife-grizzly bears, caribou, mouse, mountain goat, and do some whitewater rafting. That sounds fun! Likewise, I wouldn't want to miss the awesome phenomena called the Northern Lights. Travel Alaska is one spectacular tour. Going on a cruise to see the incredible marine life, the breathtaking scenery, and the beautiful glaciers, I'm certain that this would be one unforgettable experience of my life. Amazing!
Boy, good thing I remembered to get my purchase, and the bonus gift at Macy's the other day. Few weeks ago, I ran out of facial moisturizer so I decided to go to Macy's to buy a Clinique Moisturizing Lotion. I actually ended up buying the Clinique Moisturizing Gel for I had read great reviews about it. Oh, it's the best! No grease and my face feels velvety smooth soon after applying it. It's a bit expensive but it's worth it since it could last a long time like a year. Anyways. the lady asked me if I would want to avail of their free gift which they would start giving out on March 30th. She termed it as Pre-sale. It was only early March when I went there. I agreed. Days passed by and it was already April 3rd! Gee! As soon as I got off from work, I hurriedly went to the store, showed my receipt and got my purchase and the free gifts. The bonus gift pack consisted of the following:
- New Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturizer
- Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
- Lash Doubling Mascara in Black
- Blushwear Cream Stick-Rosy Blush
- Companion Bag
- Cosmetics Bag

Today marks our 3rd civil wedding anniversary. Soon after that, we got married in the church where most of our loved ones were present. This is one of the most treasured days of my life. My mother and my aunt were there to make sure that I looked good on my wedding day. They helped me with my wedding dress and in putting on my accessories as well as my shoes. Aside from a loving and supportive husband, my wedding wouldn't be complete without my family. For me, their love and support helped me get through this special day.
The bridal shoes that I wore that day suited perfectly with my dress. I had to wear high-heeled shoes though for my husband is tall. They were not too high for me to lose balance, but just right for my comfort and height. They looked pretty and completed the look for my wedding day. The bridal shoes from Zappos boast of unique elegance and beauty in style. The photo above is called Touch Ups Brooke. What I like about these shoes are the gorgeous crystals and jewel embellishments that sparkle on your feet. Lovely!

Ooops! I hope you don't get intimidated by all the garlic cloves. It's not overpowering as it looks. Not at all! This is another tried and tested recipe that my hubby and I really love! Very easy and very flavorful! Mmmm! mmmmm! Oh, I'm just in the food mood these days!:)
HEAT large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken and garlic; cook 4 min., turning chicken after 2 min.
STIR in broth and dressing; cover skillet with lid. Cook chicken 3 to 5 min. on each side or until done (165ºF).
SPRINKLE with Parmesan; cover. Remove from heat. Let stand 1 min.

I love the glider that we got. Fortunately, we were able to get it at a very, very reasonable price. The rocking motion helps Kaiden calm down every time he gets fussy. If Noah wants to read his favorite books, I sit down and read with him on this rocking chair. It's a good purchase I should say. Since Spring is here, I also decided to get Noah a basketball. They enjoy the outdoors so much. When the weather seems to be nice and cooperative, we either go to the park, or play at our yard with his basketball and bike. Kaiden appears to be content and happy in his little swing while he watches his brother throw the ball.
My husband wanted to get a slide or a play center for our little boys. I saw one that I like and it's called Blue Ridge Chateau Swing Set It has a beautiful wooden roof with two swings, a slide, sandbox, trapeze bar, picnic bench, etc. Oh, I'm sure the boys will love this especially Noah. Every time we go outside, I make sure they're in their play clothes. With Noah constantly running around, he surely needs to be wearing something light and comfortable.
