Swimming on the Beach

What's up y'all? Have you been to the beach lately? Oh, you should come to the Gulf Coast area and you will love their beaches. We live close by to the beach here in Cocoa Florida but, we are facing the Atlantic Ocean.Just like the picture above, the sky here is so cool, clear and blue. White sand is pretty to walk barefoot and the water is inviting. If you go swimming, watch out for the sharks. Here in Cocoa Beach, sharks toyed around the surfers. Pretty scary huh? Whatever you do that involves the beach, just be careful all the time. Have fun!

Visiting the Ship Island

When we were in Mississippi last September, I really wanted to go to Ship Island. We only have 5 days stay in the hotel and we had so much to do in a short time. I insisted of going to Ship Island so; we went to the Gulfport along US 90.When we were there, the captain told us that trips to Ship Island was cancelled due to the weather. When we look at the sky, the picture above is what we saw. Blue and clear! For the 10th times, we had to detour and we were back in the hotel. After lunch, there was a big storm! The looks can be deceiving huh? Nature is really beautiful when it's like this but on stormy day, you don't want to be near it.

Ship Island is located in the North Central Gulf of Mexico. It is about 11 miles off the Mississippi Coast. This place is one of the last undeveloped barrier islands in America and it is part of Gulf Islands National Seashore and protected by the U.S. Park Service. This exquisite sand island offer visitors the first high quality beaches for swimming and shelling east of New Orleans.

This place has an outstanding beaches, beautiful water and clean gulf air. Locals and visitors consistently rate the 22-mile round trip to Ship Island as the coast’s premier waterborne experience. Awesome right? I know one day, I can visit Ship Island.

Discount Medical and Dental Plan thru Ameriplan

My friend lost his job last year. The company has been in the business for 48 years but, because of the economic crisis, the company was forced to close their business. Its like a boomerang ... a domino effect that when one business in the area closed down, one followed the other. It was so heart wrenching when I listen to his hopes and dreams and now, he is back to basics.

One aspect that was greatly affected was his health insurance. He has the best health insurance benefits when he was working but when he was laid off, he can't afford to pay that insurance. He is just hoping that he will not get sick. Then, he heard about Ameriplan which is a discount medical and dental plan and an alternative to insurance.

He wanted to meet both ends and wanted to survive in this unfortunate recession. He plans to not only use Ameriplan as a discount for medical and dental plan but as a work from home business as well. He told me that he is in good shape health wise so; Ameriplan is the answer at present. Every time he needs a doctor, as a member of Ameriplan, he will enjoy discounts from his medical and dental bills. That is a big help in his pocket. He is trying to survive in thank goodness for the brilliant idea of Ameriplan.

Interesting Parades

Back home, in my elementary years, I remember that we had a nice parades in the city. Most kids love to catch some freebies and candies ..... well, I remember those days that I followed the floats begging for freebies. But, as the years passed and new city officials govern the city, it seems that parades are not as exciting as before. But, when I saw the pictures of the two consecutive city fiestas, I was amazed that parades came back to life. Floats are spectacular!When I arrived in Mississippi, Mardi Gras Parades are big thing! It's like being a child once again. The fun part... everyone is begging for beads and freebies. Mardi Gras Parades are fun to watch! A reason that hubby and I keep on coming back to Mississippi. Here is the "atmosphere" of the streets before the parade starts.I took this picture at the deck of the building owned by a cousin in D'Iberville, Mississippi. Most of the streets in this city are closed. I catch some beads for friends back home. I would do it over and over again.

Bridal Shower Invitations

It's been a long while since I last attended Bridal shower invitations. In fact, I cannot remember which one has the most unique party. All of the bridal shower parties that I was invited were full of interesting activity. I remember the jokes, the fun surprises for the brides and most of all, the happy face of the bride.

This year, two close members of the family will walk down the aisle sometime in September and one will be on October. One wedding will be in Spain and the other in Missouri which is close by. Both brides are all set informing us by phone and soon, invitations will be sent thru the mail.

I guess we will pass for the bridal shower invitations and we will just attend on the wedding dates. Besides, they will understand because it is more fun to have the party with close friends. I remember those bridal shower parties I attended that friends and family members were present. It was fun, full of crazy moments, clean jokes as well as a naughty experience for us especially for the bride of course.

Bridal showers are traditionally a gift-giving party for the brides-to be which should be initiated by close friends. To ensure that weddings may take place, family and friends provide goods and financial assistance to the bride. The guests are usually chosen from among the bride's personal friends, family and other well-wishers. Most bridal showers vary widely and usually, no men are invited. But then again, the number of guests and their relationship to the bride varies accordingly.

Anyway, if you have a bridal shower invitation, do not forget to bring gifts that could brighten the day of the bride to be. Make it memorable! My husband and I are excited for these two weddings. In fact, we are now window shopping for wedding gifts. Have you got any wedding gift ideas to share? I would love to read them.

Road Trips and Travels

When we travel, I always sit on the passenger's seat. That will be the time that I can go Facebooking and chat with my family and friends using the social network sites. And whenever possible, I took pictures of our road trips (literally) just like this one.This year, we plan to go to Spain so; it will not be a road trip no more. After Spain, we will visit Missouri... both trips will be for wedding invitations. I am so excited because hubby told me that we can ride the train and go to Germany and France. Oh how I wish I can go to Rome. I hope and I pray.

Flower and Vegetable Garden

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Whitney Farms. All opinions are 100% mine.

Having a home to take care of is very much exciting. We bought a new house this month and we will be living here for good. We live in a condo for years and we love gardening but due to limited space, we can only have plants planted in pots. My husband loves to plant vegetables especially tomatoes and here's some of his tomato plants:

Buying a home with a good size back yard as well as front yard truly delighted us both. In our minds we have things to do such as landscaping and make a curb appeal.

Anyway, the soil here in Florida needs something to make the plants thrive beautifully. That is why we need garden products such as Whitney Farms® which helps the soil becomes richer.

Dog Medicine

Thanks for the article from Jermaine Haynes:

I just saw a commercial for Pet Armor on my Dish Network, and I’m so glad I did because I had totally forgotten to give my dog his flea and tick medicine! I know the ticks are insane right now because I keep finding them on me when I come in from working in the garden, so I’ve got to keep him protected from them. He’s got such a thick, black coat of fur that it is really hard to find them on him and remove them, so the best defense is to just make sure he doesn’t get them to begin with. I usually do get him shaved in the summer, though, so that helps to see them and remove them a little easier. He is an outside dog primarily, and really only comes in when it is too cold or storming outside. He’s terrified of thunder and will run away if he hears it so I have to make sure to bring him inside. With him being primarily outside, I need to remember his medicine!

Bamboo Floors Preference

We have hardwood floors in the new house that we bought. Hubby and I were glad because we do not like carpet flooring. We heard that the floors in the house undergone sanding twice. It's worn out and that's the problem. For now, we wanted to move in the house the soonest time so; we had to deal with the floors for another year. I tried waxing and it turned out pretty good. I was scouting for materials and boy oh boy, bamboo flooring is really beautiful but pricey. We wanted quality material so; bamboo flooring is the right choice for us. What do you think? You like it?
For now, we focus on the kitchen remodel, the cabinets were up yesterday and they're doing the minor fixes, back splash and counter top. We are excited to bring in the new appliances by the weekend.

Nine West 5" High Heeled Shoes

I bought this Nine West brand sexy footwear at Victoria Secret two weeks ago. I love the style and the color and I thought I can handle wearing them in the church. Too bad, I am used to wearing flip flops and sandals. I live in Florida and flip flops are comfy to wear you know.Anyway, I went to church and the whole time I was holding the arms of my husband LOL. When I was teaching, I am used to wearing high heels and I commute so; this is like my flip flop. To cut the story short, since I do not work anymore, I wear sneakers most of the time and for 4 years, I seldom wear high heeled shoes. Oh, this is 5" high, imagine that! I am back to practicing.

Miracle Gro Expand 'n Gro the Concentrated Planting Mix

This post brought to you by Scotts®. All opinions are 100% mine.

Spring time is fun especially when you have the time to explore some activities with your family. You can go out and enjoy the beauty of your neighborhood when the trees started to bloom with flowers. If you have a garden, you may start to check out if there are flowering plants thriving from winter.

I love spring time because it is a good time for gardening. How about you? Do you have a green thumb? If not, just use the Expand ‘n Gro™ concentrated planting mix because it sure works like a miracle when you are ready for planting. I received a sample of Miracle Gro Expand and Gro few days ago and I used it in my tomato garden. I am so excited because I can now harvest my ripe tomatoes in two days.

It also feeds the plants for up to 6 months and it improves the texture of the soil and expands up to 3X when water is added.

Good Looking Smart Car

I saw this smart car parked in the parking lot a while ago. The color is unique and bold huh? I don't wanna be in it in the busy traffic of Orlando LOL. But, I saw people driving the smart car in the national highway.Smart car is a German manufacturer of micro cars produced in France and Germany.I read an information online that in the 80’, the SMH , the makers of the Swatch brand of watches began developing an idea for a new car using the same type of manufacturing strategies used to popularize Swatch watches. This idea soon became known as the "Swatchmobile". Hayek's private company Hayek Engineering AG began designing the new car for SMH, with seating for two and a hybrid drive train. Here it is! The realization of a dream creation! A good mileage too. You can but it for less than 12K.

Sunrise Finance : Loan Calculator

Are you planning to buy a new car that is good in mileage? You can't go wrong with that plan. Currently, the gas prices are too much for everyone and I know, your budget is hurting you too right? If you are a student, do you consider financing your college studies? If you pursue the plan of purchasing a new car, you need a loan calculator to determine the monthly payment of your fixed-rate loan. Use the same tool in your college financing.

You need to budget and use only the amount that you can afford to pay to avoid the hassle in the future. Also, you need to consider if a long term loan makes sense. You should protect yourself from being tied down to big loans and it is necessary to use a loan calculator at to help you see how much your monthly payment is.

Usually, your monthly payment will drop but, your total cost will rise. Your monthly payment will be determined according to the interest rate given and the term that you want. Therefore, the shorter the term you selected, the higher your monthly payment will be. If you plan to apply for loans, make sure you need it at this time. Use your loaned money wisely and make sure you can afford to pay if worse comes unexpectedly.

Using the loan calculator, you will have the option to adjust the rates and you can also compare how much payment you will have in 3 year or 5 years fixed rates. It really depends upon your capacity to pay. When you loan money, you should be responsible to pay or else, it will boomerang to your credit history. You don’t want to ruin your credit history right? Therefore, make a plan and use the right tool to compute. Be responsible!

Home: Renting or Buying

Assuming that your finances are great with 900 credit rating report from 3 bureaus, would you prefer to rent a home or take a big step on buying a home? Are you better off renting? Buying a home is a huge and exciting decision. Based from experience, I would say go ahead and buy a house now if you are not affected with the economic crisis.

Currently, the real state property prices dived rock bottom. You can buy your dream home at reasonable price. If you need a bigger space? Buy a home and do not rent! There are a lot of great reasons to buy a home. When you are a homeowner, you can decorate and renovate your house any way you like.

So, find a good realtor who are expert in this field. Make sure he knows the area so well. He will be your eyes and ears into your local real estate market. Besides, he can provide valuable insights into local market trends to aid you in your decision. Buy a house! That is my sound advice to you.

Non-Tangible Mother's Day Gifts That Your Mom Can Enjoy

Mother's Day gifts should be planned ahead of time in order to come up with unique and special gift on the special day for your mom. The usual gifts that are given to moms during Mother's day are flowers. While this expresses your sweetness and thoughtfulness, giving the same gift every year can be a sign of being thoughtless.

There are gifts that your mother will surely appreciate other than material gifts. Yes, you can give something to your mom that she can't touch, but she can enjoy. These gifts are called experience gifts. You can give something to your mom that she can enjoy or experience. The experiences will give your mom lasting memories that are worth more than any material gift.

If your mom has not had a vacation for a long time, then a good out of the country vacation package for her will make her truly happy. You can arrange a tour package for her to a country which she has not been in the past, or to her favorite country. Also, you can give her extra money that she can use for shopping. This gift will surely make her truly happy and remember your gift forever. If you want her to get some visible remembrance of her trip, then a nice camera for her trip can do the trick.

You can still give her a good trip even if you are low on budget. A nice family outing to the beach is a good alternative too. When was the last time that the family went out to the beach? Having the entire family together for one day for your mom will make her feel happy and complete. There is no better happiness for a mother than seeing her entire family happy and enjoying.

Moreover, you can also give your mom something that she always wants to learn. You can enroll her in a ballroom dancing class. It is a good way to meet new people at the same time to exercise. Most moms love to learn new things, but they don't have time to do it when their children are small. When all your siblings are grown up, it is the best time for mom to make time to improve herself.

These are just some of the best Mother's Day Gifts that you can give to your loving mother. Some gifts cannot be seen. There are some that can give experience that can last a lifetime.

Happy Easter Everyone

Happy Easter Everyone! I know that I will be busy on the weekend so; here's Easter bunny for you all. Have fun with your family and keep the Christian tradition alive in your household. If you go to the beach, watch out for your children and keep it sober. Have fun and be safe.

Sharing you the Easter Bunny cake and look how many eggs that I got!

These pictures were taken in Mississippi three years ago. It is nice to be surrounded with family and friends because activity like this is more fun to celebrate especially when you have nieces and nephews coming over, it surely is fun!

Home Buying Experience

When you buy a home, make sure that you have the budget that can handle the price of your dream home. There are things you can do to stretch your buying power. First, get pre-approved for your home loan. If you don’t have, you need to explore creative financing options. You may also sell your existing home first. It is up to you really.

Though you have a realtor to help you, try expanding your search. Do not forget to take the MLS number so that, you can give it to your realtor for some more information. Look for vacant real estate because in my experience, I do not like to see houses with some personal things in the house. Unless if the property was sold as new with new bonus appliances.

You should consider buying a cosmetic fixer property. If you are handy with a paintbrush (like me), with a toolset and gardening equipment, prepare yourself for a job in cosmetic fixing. Property that lacks curb appeal needs minor handiwork. Little touches on the yard could end up being the home of your dreams for a price you can afford. Just need to look beyond the ugly to see the potential of a cosmetic fixer property. Make sure that the property is not a money pit, or else your savings in Paypal 1099-K will be gone.

If you want to live a nice house by the lake, consider buying a dilapidated cottage on a fabulous lot with western exposure. If you do some significant home improvements, your newly bought property will value so high. And if your carpentry and other construction skills are well-developed, you can save so much money.

Sony VAIO at Walmart

I think I found my new gadget at Walmart for less than $500. This Intel Pentium B960 Processor has a 4GB of installed system memory DDR3/1333MHz and with a maximum capacity 8GB. It has 500GB (5400 RPM) Serial-ATA hard disk drive which can store movies, important documents and photos on the roomy 500GB hard drive. It has a 15.5" (1366 x 768) widescreen on LED backlight, a bright display with lower power consumption for improved battery life.This laptop can wirelessly connect to the TV by connecting an adapter to a compatible TV. Has a built-in microphone and web camera that offers face tracking technology which allows the camera to automatically adjust and keep you in focus. With just few clicks, VAIO Care software can tune-up your VAIO PC. This beautiful gadget also has a Picture Motion Browser or PMB which makes managing the photos and home videos, so easy.

It also features video stabilization and red-eye removal. This gadget also comes with a Genuine Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium. Using the Media Gallery software, you can create movies and enjoy photos in a whole new way. The Web button provides one touch access to the web. Has a QWERTY keyboard which is very comfortable to use. One more thing, I love this unit because it leaves no fingerprint. The design is awesome with a textured, geometric patterned lid and palm rest. It is artfully crafted which makes it pleasing to the eyes and to the touch. Lastly, it is an Energy Star qualified model which simply means, it provides energy efficiency.

Flower Delivery on Easter

I bet you have a busy weekend for grocery and shopping for the most awaited Easter celebration huh? It is more fun when you celebrate it with your close friends and family. Most of us make the Easter celebration a tradition for family and we always have a get-together party, right? When my husband and I were in Mississippi, we celebrate Easter with the family. We bring food, and prepare Easter eggs for the children's egg hunting activity. My favorite time during the party is the egg hunting for children. They always look for the lucky egg which contains a big amount of money.

I also remember that my father-in-law loves to receive Flowers on Easter which were given by his daughters and friends. He loves tulips and roses. All his gifts arrived on time. Maybe they ordered their Easter gifts form an online flower delivery store. Speaking of flowers, my husband sent me flowers thru the mail today. I was so happy for hubby's thoughtfulness. If you are confused what to give to your dear wife for Easter, give her a basket chocolate, fruit bearing plants or flowers. Those gift ideas can surely melt a woman's heart. As for me, I will definitely give my husband a fruit bearing plant. He has a garden and plants are one of his weaknesses.

Victoria's Secret Free Tote

When I have an email notification from Victoria Secret, I always check it out specially when it contain free stuffs. I collected quiet a few VS tote bag and I use them all. Usually, free tote needs a purchase of $65, $d75 or more. If you plan to just get the tote only, I do not recommend it. But, if you spend for items that you use or wear, do it because free stuff is really good. Anyway, just sharing to all of you that I am happy with all the Free Tote that I got from Victoria's Secret.

Durable and Reliable Footwear

My husband would call me "Imelda Marcos" junior because my collections of shoes are keeps on adding up. I have a good size walk-in closet and my shoes are arranged according to the design such as sandals, flip flop, boots, stiletto, sneakers, wedges, and more. I admit, few of my shoes are still on the box and never worn.

I buy footwear according to the quality, design and comfort. When I am at home or go to the grocery, I wear flip flops or sneakers. I also wear Jeans and sleeveless shirts paired with sneakers which are my favorite daily wear. I am not really picky with brands but, as long as they are made in good quality, I buy them. What about you? Well, just last week, my brother who is working in another country asked me to buy him shoes.

My brother prefers clarks shoes for heavy duty footwear especially when he is working on the field. He and his helpers deliver chicken products to a wet market so; the area is always slippery when wet. A work boot is advisable to wear especially when the sole parts of the shoes are made with a safety material. He is always looking for a durable and reliable work wear that works as hard as he is.

Shooting at a Medical School in Oakland

I am blogging and watching TV at the same time. Then, there was a breaking news on Fox news: Multiple Deaths in CA Medical School.

It was confirmed by Fox News through Sheppard Smith that 5 were dead at Oikos University. This is really a sad day. Schools are supposed to be safe but currently, school is not a safe place anymore.

My heart goes out to the family of the 5 students killed. Let us continue to pray that the gunman will be caught and no more casualty.
