Went crabbing my husband and his family to South jetty, Florence here in Oregon. There were so many seagulls and I couldn't help not to take their photos. They were there to eat whatever we could give them, some of our baits or some crabs. It was really windy and cold.

Funny Tomato

Weird Tomato

I took this photo of the tomato my mother-in-law harvested from her garden. It's a really funny looking one so I feel I can't post it on my facebook. People will surely comment on it there. I just thought it might be fun to do it here.

Baby Blanket

My baby's blanket I made. I'm not done with it yet because I still need to put the batting and all but at least I got the front finished. He will need it a lot during winter when he's born. I enjoyed making this quilt for him. It makes me want to make more and sell them.

Birthday Party

Steven celebrated his birthday and I was really glad he enjoyed it. I love him so much. He's second from left. I took this photo with the people we usually hang out more. Although, it has been a while since we hung out with them but I'm just glad we still did. Food turned out good, I'm still glad it wasn't bad or else. Anyway, I'm just happy my husband enjoyed his simple celebration.

Investing in Gold

5 years ago my 401k was moving steadily was 401k gold. I mean, I was making significant gains.
Things have changed in the last couple of years. So, while my 401k isn't like gold anymore, I have been thinking about gold. has been a treasure sought after for many thousands of years. It's really the only market that has always stayed strong. And that's why I've been considering investing in a gold IRA.

You can put many different investments into an IRA gold being one of them.

I already 3 different retirement accounts going....but these last 3 years of economic decline have severely affected my least the net value. I, of course, still have the same amount of shares.

But gold has gotten stronger during this crazy time. Since 2 of my retirement accounts are 401k's that I had with previous employers, I should qualify to do a gold IRA transfer, which is where I transfer the 401k to an IRA and then use the roll-over funds to purchase the gold.
Maybe legislation has changed and there is such a thing as a gold 401k, but I think I'm going to have to go through the transfer process.

Trip To the East Coast

Steven and I have been planning a vacation for quite a long time now. Steven wants to go so many places. Mostly he wants to visit other countries, but he has also never been to New York. And I have never been to the East Coast.
So, this summer we are planning on heading out to NY & NJ for a week. It should be really fun!

There are some great concerts happening over there this summer so I plan on hitting a few different venues.
I need to get our tickets soon!
We're going to the Tom Petty show so I need to get our IZOD CENTER TICKETS for that show. That's in New Jersey.
After NJ, we'll head on into New York for the other shows and probably spend most of our time there.
John Mayer is playing an outdoor show at a place called Nikon, so we need to get purchase our JONES BEACH THEATRE TICKETS soon before that show sells out.

And then the highlight of all of the concerts is a show in Central Park! The John Butler Trio is playing a show there! Isn't that awesome?

So, we definitely must get our Central Park Summerstage TICKETS in the next few days for that one!

Setting Up Blogs

One of the hardest things for me when setting up a blog is trying to decide where to host the site. There are a plethora of providers out there who claim to have the best services. Knowing the difference between the different services available is very tough. Honestly, I haven't really figured out which company is the best to go to for web hosting. Too many to choose from!

I'm about to set up another blog soon, another website. And once again it will be time to find a new web hosting service. I'm going to search for some reviews of the web hosting services this time though. The last time I paid for a service I found out afterwards that I was way overcharged. I won't let that happen this time.

Just Writing

Every morning for several days now, I wake up early with a goodbye kiss from my husband. Later in the morning, the sound of heavy machine fixing the road in the neighborhood which is super annoying wakes me up. The kiss from my husband is the best, now I look forward to it everyday. Sometimes I don't want him to leave. Then the annoying noise outside which wakes me up really upsets me. I need to get all the sleep before going to work. It's hard to be pregnant and people say it's harder on your first one. My breasts are really tender which makes it hard to run around my workplace, my lower back hurts, and wanting to throw up while working are the hardest things I have to deal with. But like every mother feels, I'm excited to see my baby, to know whether it's healthy and buy baby stuff. I'm excited!

Kitchen Utensils

I have always been in a lookout for tableware that is suitable in our kitchen. I'm not a good designer at all when it comes to decorating the house. I try to just make it more like a home as possible. I check online for new patterns and colors that are in so I will know what I want. It helps a lot. I also like finding cheaper but nice decor.

Right now, I don't have a lot of flatware. When people come and visit, it's always a problem for me. I do like it when they all have the same design, that way it looks better. Before when I was single I wouldn't care. Now that I have my own family it made me care more. I like looking at stuff from the Food Network. They have tons of kitchen stuff that I love and they're not expensive. Someday, I will buy more.

Online Sports Bet

During the sport's season like football or basketball, so many fans would bet on their favorite team. Not only that, they would show their love and support by wearing the team's sports gear. I didn't know that you can bet on sports online. So many people maybe don't know this but I'm sure my friend would appreciate it if he finds out. He's so much into football betting when football season is here.

The only sport I like is volleyball. I also like watching boxing when our Filipino boxer has a match here in US. He's actually really good and now very famous. So many people bet on his match in my country. It's really amazing. I think they make tons of money if they bet on him.

On Being Pregnant

I still am not sure whether I am really pregnant. It came as a surprise, actually when I asked Steven to buy me the Chocolate Thunder Brownie Ice Cream by Umpqua. My husband said we should also buy a pregnancy test. I think he was observing me because I was so emotional and I haven't had my period. So after we got home, I immediately tested and it turned out at first negative. So I put it down and told him I'm not pregnant but then he waited more and it turned to positive. He told me it's positive so I left the bathroom and was pacing the living room. I could not believe because I was thinking late this year or next year to have a baby. He held me in his arms and I cried. Then he told me we should try the second tester and I said I have no more pee. I drank a lot of soda so a few minutes later, I peed. Still, the result was the same. We announced it immediately to families and friends.
I still can't believe that I am pregnant that's why I'm calling my doctor tomorrow for a blood test to see if I am. People are now careful even my patients care for me too. I really like it that they're concerned. So many have said the pregnancy test is really accurate. We'll see!

Save On Computer Supplies

I would say many people are getting smarter when it comes to spending their money. We love looking for the best deals or go to stores that are having sales meaning we want to save our money.
I'm always on a look out for electronic stuff. I look for codes like HP coupon code because I can print it or use it online. People who use the computer a lot will definitely like this. If you are a Dell user you can also check the Dell coupon code. We are hoping to switch into a different computer someday and these coupons will come in handy. What I always enjoy doing is looking at coupons on newspapers and magazines. Browsing websites that helps you save is one of my favorite pastime too. What I've been doing lately is when I want to buy something, I compare prices online and then go to the store who has the cheapest price. I love that we are able to do that now. Oh yeah, I also found Hewlett Packard items that you can save on some money since we're talking about computer supplies. Why spend more when you can save money? Go and check it out!

Math Tutor

My sister-in-law had a hard time with her math homework when she was taking it. I am not good with math and I didn't know that you can have some tutor to help you on your Math homework online. If I have known, she could have a free math homework help from the comfort of her own home. She can just log in to her computer and ask for help.

So many people are going back to colleges now to get their degrees. I'm sure they too have to go study the basic subjects like Math. The free math tutoring online will definitely benefit those people. It's not easy to be working and then going back to studying. If I go back to college, I think I will need calculus tutor because it's my weakest when I was in high school. The college calculus is a whole new level so many college students will definitely need calculus help.

This is not only for college students, K12 can also benefit from this great website called TutorVista. Free math tutoring is offered for first time users and then there's a monthly tutoring fee package for a price any student can afford. Solve calculus in no time because this service is available twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week.

Bath and Body Work's Raspberry Vanilla Lotion

I love Bath and Body Works ever since my sister introduce it to me. I asked my wonderful husband if I could go and buy a lotion there last Saturday. It's mainly for him because he loves the smell of Bath and Body Works lotion. My goal is to seduce him. LOL! I'm just kidding but it does help him get attracted to me too.
When I went inside the shop, there were so many wonderful choices. It was hard to choose which one I wanted to try. It took me quite a bit because I wanted almost everything in there. I'm so glad for their buy 2 take 1 or buy 3 take 2 promo. Bath and Body Works prices are really good too. I finally chose the Black Raspberry Vanilla body lotion. It has the smell of raspberry and vanilla combined. It's fresh and makes you want to smell more. I love the texture of the lotion on my skin. I have really dry skin and Bath and Body works lotion doesn't dry my skin at all. A sales lady helped me try it and the way she treated me helped me decide because she was really nice. I know I made the right choice. I bought one more so I could get a free one. The other two I bought is the Japanese Cherry Blossom Sensual Amber lotions. I highly recommend these products.

Beautiful and Trendy

I was happy to see a friend yesterday because she's going back to her hometown today. It was really short but nice. Her hair is shorter now and I really liked it. Short hairstyles can be really cool especially if you look good. I love to look at celebrities who look good with short hair.

Also good for the hair are hair accessories on Total Beauty. It's amazing how trendy hair accessories are nowadays. I love browsing the famous actresses hair accessories. Wish it would look good on me too. I would love creating my own to fit my features.

Allure is one of the websites I like to browse. They feature celebrities like Heidi Klum and many others. They also offer beauty tips which I really like because I don't really know how to put make-up so I learn from it. Hair styles are also something that interest me a lot and this is where I get ideas too. I love giveaways and sweeps so if you do too, check it out. You'll love it!

Free Emergen-C

I love Emergen-C! It taste good and it's loaded with vitamin C. A friend bought it for me one time when I was down with flu. She is really nice to me. I'm so glad she got it for me, it helped me recover.
Emergen-C has come up with different flavors now. Would you like a free sample? Just click here.

Language Barrier

My husband and I are into learning different languages. He is more committed in learning Spanish than I am. He would sometimes use the translation service online to be able to translate certain words and phrases so he can help others.

This online translation website has the largest professional translators in the world. You can just log on for free and you can ask different translators depending on what language you would like translated. I think it's really amazing that the registration is free. This gives people time to browse and get familiar with the website. You can have as many words translated too and be given back to you in time. Clients will be charged with translation fee but they don't have to pay until they are satisfied.

What I also love about this is that bloggers can earn money even if they don't translate. Just join the affiliate program and earn 15% commission on the sales by referring someone. That is really amazing!

Budgeting Your Money

I love to shop whenever I can get discounts. I would search online for promo codes on all kinds of products. My husband taught me how to budget our money properly and sometimes it's hard to buy things you really want because they're way out of your budget.

There are many people who uses HP computers and I'm sure they are searching for HP coupon codes. Here you can find some coupons to help you save some money. It makes you enjoy shopping more for your computer whenever you can get great deals.

Dell online coupons is also available for Dell users. We all have different taste when it comes to computers so if you are looking for the Dell coupons, this is the one that's worth trying. Choose any products from printing to Xbox gaming equipments.

Free Sample Diapers

Costco is giving some free samples of Huggies Sung and Dry Diapers. So if you're a mom who wants to try the diapers, just fill up this Costco form. It's good to get freebies online especially when it's for someone special. I wish I could review it myself but I still don't have a baby.
