Wordless Wednesday - Trey is walking

Trey is WALKING at 10 months old. I am just so excited to see him grow that fast and on the other hand a little bit sad that it is really that fast.

Here's a video montage of his first steps. At the end of the video he said "bye".

Here's a photo of him with my friend's pretty daughter in a very cute pink bike. How I wish there's a pink bike like this for grown ups.

What is too old and too young for Easter?

I hope everyone had a good Easter. As for me, I slept half of the day since I worked the graveyard shift the night before. The family went to church and got some Easter treats for the kids. But we didn't do anything fun for the kids really. The hubby said Nate is too old for it and Trey is too young to understand it this year. Hopefully we will do better next time. The only thing that matters is we remember the true meaning of Easter which is the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Here's a photo of Trey way back when he was 4 months old. I was still 7 months pregnant with him when I bought that cute Easter bunny for 75 percent off at a post Easter sale last year.

Pier 1 - Spring Outdoor

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pier 1 for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Now that spring is here I am so excited because it means warmer weather and time to hang around outdoors. I am an outdoorsy kind of person and if  I could spend most of my time outdoors every day I would. I am so glad Pier 1's stylish and versatile outdoor furniture and decor has arrived. 

I love parties and inviting friends over. These are some of the must haves that I wish to get from Pier 1 for outdoor entertaining this season.     


Those trendy and colorful outdoor garden stools and the fun designs of the Whimsical Garden cushions will update your patio or outdoor living area and make it vibrant and refreshing. Since most of their outdoor furniture and decor is  versatile, you can use it to design your patio or outdoor living area in the spring and summer; and use it indoors in the fall and winter. The metal tub beverage is a great example. 

They have amazing bargains that I have my eyes on. One of them is the Estrella Doormat that would look perfect in our patio door.

The iconic Pier 1 Papasan has evolved into something new and exciting. I would love to have the Swingasan to relax under the trees and read my favorite book. Check out all the different outdoor Papasans that are available this spring. They all look so cozy and relaxing. 

Don't forget to sign up for the Pier 1 Tweet Ups which will be in NYC on April 20th. For more information about the address and time pleae visit  Pier 1 Tweetups

This Mom Needs Super Powers

Today, and for the next 7 weeks, I am babysitting my friend's 8 month old baby. The day I told her I'd do it, I was thinking it would be fun for Trey to have another baby a month younger than him to be around. I was thinking it will improve their social skills and will keep them occupied most of the time. Well I was right about those things. But due to my nature as it is, I only think about the good things. I don't usually think about the bad things that could happen. It is not so bad really. I knew I was expecting the worse in the back of my mind but I thought to myself, "how hard can it be?" It will probably be like having twins plus a dog.

Today started out great. I got Xander (my friend's baby) to nap for a half hour without Trey disturbing him. I also get Trey to nap for an hour without Xander disturbing him. They played together which was the highlight of the day. They were having fun until the things that I knew might happen, of course, did happen. Trey would get jealous whenever I put Xander on my lap to feed him and would climb up to me and want to sit on my lap too. Being curious and use to rough housing with his big brother and the dog, Trey would poke Xander's face. Xander in turn (being shy because he is new to his environment) would just sit there and take it. Then the afternoon came when Xander just woke up from his nap and was hungry at the same time Trey was just getting fussy and sleepy. Trey, of course, can't take a nap without being rocked in the rocker (the result of his father's spoiling). So I found myself with 2 crying babies at the same time; one hungry and wide awake, the other sleepy and tired. What to do?! How did I get myself into this?? This is my first time. Is there a manual out there on how to do it? This is the time when I need an octupus hand or some magic powers like those super moms or superheroes.

My first thought was to feed Xander first and put Trey to sleep afterwards. But it didn't work out. Xander wouldn't drink the bottle I gave him and Trey wouldn't let go holding onto me so tightly. So I gave up and just rocked them both in the rocker. Trey on my right arm already halfway asleep and Xander on my left trying to climb up out of the rocker. Eventually I had to stand to feed Xander which, of course, woke Trey. But Xander seemed to be upset too. I think he was just looking for his Mommy. He wouldn't stop crying. His diaper was dry. He wouldn't drink his milk. Everytime one would cry, the other would cry louder. This is Xander's first time to be with me and to be away for long from his Mom. While rocking them again, trying to calm them down, I thought to myself how lucky I am to be able to stay at home with my baby for 5 days and only have to work part time for the 2 weekend nights. I wish I didn't have to work at all but I promised myself not to complain again about my situation.
Hopefully, the babies and I will survive the next 7 weeks.
Any super moms out there who can lend me some super powers?

Bargain Find of the Week: $2 Walmart Leggings

3 months after Trey was born, I went back to work part time. It dawned on me that part time means getting half of the income I use to get when I was working full time for 2 years. And it also means very little left, if any at all, for extra shopping. So I am always so thrilled if I can find a good bargain.

This week I found these $2 Walmart leggings. It's obvious that I'm obsessed with floral designs right now. These leggings just made me turn around and grab it, then justify my act by telling myself that a girl can't get enough florals; especially when it's the spring season.




Thank you so much to all who entered my giveaway and to all my followers. Here are the awesome winners.

The first prize which is a pair of leggings goes to comment number 17:

The 2nd runner up, who won the handbag holder is comment number 2

For the 3rd place, who won the pack of 10 bracelets is comment number 13

Congratulations to all the winners. Hopefully in the future I will have some more giveaways. Now I'm off to contacting the winners. Winners are given until Sunday to respond.
