Dinner is for Family…

  Some of you may know that my familia and I have dinner together.  All the time. Unless there is an event that I have to go to or one of the kids are with my prima, we always have dinner together.  The 5 of us.  5 out of 7 nights I cook dinner from scratch.   Whether it’s Filipino or Mexican cuisine, I cook at home. It is like second nature for us.  Every evening at 6pm, we have dinner.  {Read More}

The Perfect Pairing!

Frito-Lay gave me something that I truly appreciate. Something that as a mom, I hardly ever get.  A Girls Day Out!  Oh, yes they did. Although, I’m sure that the company I was with, made the day 1000% better!  Several L.A. based bloggers and I got together last week and did what I do best.  Yup, we ate! As always, I had the great pleasure in hanging out with Daytripping Mom, Rockin Mama and OC Mom Activities.  Plus, this was {Read More}

Carbon Monoxide Alarms {Local Giveaway}

A new state law, here in California,  went into effect, which requires all existing single family homes to install carbon monoxide alarms.  Carbon monoxide is an invisible, odorless poison that can only be detected with an alarm.  There have been way to many stories in the news on how entire families have died because of Carbon Monoxide poisoning. It’s so heartbreaking when you hear how these tragedies could have been prevented. CO is a colorless, odorless gas that one cannot {Read More}

That’s Mamihood!- The Call

You gotta know this call…. Moooooommmmmmmmyyyyyyyyyy!  I’mmmmm dooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnneeeeeee! Yes, the call of the wild.  I have been consistently wiping butts,  for about 6 1/2 years now.  I guess, by now,  you can say I am a professional butt wiper.   To be truthful, I’d rather wipe butts than to watch how I grab the dirty laundry to put into the washer.  Because there have been times in which ¡ay mamá!  You get the picture!  But…. That’s Mamihood!  

TruGreen Helps You Breath! {Giveaway}

Summer Heat is blasting So Cal!  I know it’s summer and what else am I expecting, right?  I have a love/hate relationship with summer.  I love the lazy days and swimming pool visits.  I hate the heat and sticky humidity.  Especially the kind of heat that takes your breath away… ugh!  As you can tell, I don’t handle the heat very well.  How about you?   Want to know the best part of summer?  Late evenings when the sun is about {Read More}

Vaccinations and your teens!

Before the school year ended I was bombarded with notices that my PreTeen will need a Pertussis booster shot for Whopping Cough  before the start of the new school year.  There is no doubt in my mind that my son will get that, and whatever else he needs. My kids are currently up to date with all of their vaccinations.   Since the birth of my first child, all my kids have been vaccinated when the Dr. told me to.  I {Read More}
