Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop #65

How are you, my friends? Summer kicked in and school is over so I'm sure you're gearing up to execute your summer plans. From the time that my husband and I got married, we've done everything by the seat of our pants - no plans at all, only guided by the current situation and we just make do of what we have. Both of us have filed for vacation mid-July but still we have no clue where to go for a vacation. I have friends who have booked their vacations and bought their tickets months in advance, but no sir-ree! Not us, because we live by the moment. I remember that spur-of-the-moment vacation in Hawaii in 2006 or that spontaneous vacation in Palm Springs prior to that. There are pros-and-cons with our method and somehow, we always managed to pull it through and make the pros outweigh the cons. One thing I noticed is that no matter how much we plan in advance, there's always some revisions in the plan so to avoid the agonizing pain of planning and frustrations of last-minute changes, we just go for it and lead spontaneous vacations. How about you, do you plan your summer months in advance or are you just like us who live in spontaneity?

Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop #64

Happy Fathers' Day to the dads in our lives! Welcome to our 64th edition of Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop :)

In exchange for 5 points in her Chores Chart, I let Princess One prepare the Stuffed French Toast Bake for my hubby today, and it turned out delicious :) (Side note: She's trying to earn 50 chores points so she can attend Victoria Justice's concert in August.) Every Fathers' Day, we cook a recipe that's something different from our usual menu and that's how we decide if a new dish is worth adding in our repertoire of recipes. Tonight, courtesy of Princess One again, we'll have meatball sandwich. Being 10 1/2 and all, Princess One has become so helpful and handy in the house, especially at this time when my mother and I are sick. Of course, it doesn't hurt to earn points for her much-coveted Victoria Justice concert. So, anything special you're doing for the dads in your lives?

Favorite Blog

Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop #63

Thank you for joining us again today at the Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop, my dear friends! My goodness! Today is June 10th and it's my grandma's birthday. If she were alive, she would be a century old today! Wherever you are right now, Grandma, happy birthday!

I hate to admit it but I grew up with no tv, not by my parents choice but because it was forced upon us due to poverty. In high school, there was no electricity so I used kerosene lamps to study for exams and because we had no tv, my mode of entertainment was dreaming my future that includes watching tv. Oh my goodness, fast-forward to the present, and technology has come a long, long way. It took some convincing on my husband's part before I agreed to subscribe with DirectTV through www.giveadish.com (I was happy just watching the local shows, plus there was no added expense) but after having that first recorded show in our DVR, I became a convert. Now, in the convenience of our home, I can catch up watching my favorite shows during the weekend such as Design Star, Design on a Dime, So You Think You Can Dance, and great movies of all time like Indiana Jones, Star Wars, etc. My girls can watch their Dora and iCarly shows over and over again, and most importantly, my husband can watch his golf shows in HD. How about you, do you watch satellite or cable TV?

Favorite Blog

    Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop #62

    Happy Sunday, my dear friends! I hope that you're having a lovely day :)

    We are fortunate enough to live with family members close by so whenever somebody has a birthday, the whole clan (20 of us, plus or minus 10 if other visitors were invited) can gather together and celebrate it together. It's no more a question as to who will attend but when and where the celebration will be. Yesterday and today are those special days. Two of our nieces have birthdays that fell on June 2nd and June 3rd respectively so this afternoon, I'll be in a kiddie's birthday party again along with the whole family. We've celebrated our kids birthday parties in many ways - 1) at home singing karaoke or playing games while eating non-stop, 2) or in Chuck E Cheese's where we had arcade games, pizza, buffalo wings, and salad (this type of celebration is my least favorite because of time constraint. After 2 hours, we're already booted out from the party area), 3) or in the park so the kids can play to their heart's content, 4) or the beach where everyone is gathered for a picnic and can play outdoor games, and 5) like yesterday, bowling in the bowling lanes. Of them all, my favorite is celebrating it at the home of the host because it's more relaxing, a familiar place, more home-y, more informal (if one kid is misbehaving, we can easily correct the behavior unlike in public places), and we can be flexible on what activity we want to do. How about you? What's your favorite way of celebrating your kids' birthday party?

    Favorite Blog
