Daily Sweetener That’s Healthy For You ( Momimhar posted on March 18th, 2015 )

As a full-time mom and housewife, life is sometimes difficult for me especially when I don’t get all my house chores done.  There are times when  I get to do something today but will get left behind because something very important comes up.  And so, I end up in a back log at times.

But there are moments when I feel very at ease.  Thanks to my loving husband for always being there to help me especially in the kitchen.  I don’t cook that much at all.  My husband does most of the cooking for us.  He doesn’t care for Filipino foods that much.  Here is more into Tex-Mex foods.

Anyway, whenever I am feeling overwhelmed I just get me a cup of coffee and tsweetleafake a few minutes of relaxation in the living room while watching my favorite cooking show.  I don’t need to put a lot of sugar in my coffee because we have SweetLeaf Organic Stevia Sweetener.

Winter And Cold Weather Essentials ( Momimhar posted on March 6th, 2015 )


Snow on the porch and backyard.

I was the one who got excited about this snow storm that went on overnight last night.  I didn’t get to sleep until around three o’clock in the morning.  Isn’t it crazy? :)  Once in a while I opened the window blinds and looked outside to see how big the snow fall was and how much snow we’re getting.  In short, I was the one who’s excited about the snow. :)

When I woke up this morning, I quickly looked out the window and saw so much snow on the porch and backyard.  My dear husband already left for work when I got up.  He borrowed my car today because it has better front brakes.  It was so bright and quiet outside.  As usual, my darling daughter didn’t wake up until around eleven o’clock in the morning.

Here’s our snow girl. She’s bigger this time. :)

As soon as we finished eating brunch (breakfast/lunch meal), my daughter and I put on our winter coats and boots.  In cold weather like this, it is highly recommended to wear think winter clothing, cold weather accessories, and footwear like snow boots if you want to stay outdoors for an hour or so.  You would want to feel warm and comfortable while playing in the snow so you have to bundle up.

Winter Clothes 

  • coats
  • heavy jackets
  • sweatshirts
  • leggings
  • thermal pants
  • sweatpants

Cold weather accessories

  • scarves
  • head band
  • leg warmers
  • thick socks
  • gloves
  • winter boots
  • snow boots

Winter storm in Texas 3-05-15

My daughter and I built a snowman.  Actually, she wanted to call it a snowgirl.  This time it’s a bigger one.  It was a wonderful time playing in the snow.  We got about 4 inches.  That’s a lot.

This last photo was taken a day over seven years ago.  It was two weeks after my arrival here in the US and it snowed in Texas.  That was my very first snow experience.  Yesterday’s snow storm was a day early seven years ago.  :)

Me In My High School Uniform #TBT ( Momimhar posted on March 5th, 2015 )

My high school photo with batch mates.

My high school photo (that’s me no socks on) with batch mates.

I am feeling nostalgic these past few days.  After 21 years, my class in senior high school is planning to hold a reunion for the batch 1994 this coming May.  As a salutatorian, I should be attending the reunion.  But, unfortunately, I will not be able to attend this special event.  Sad, I know.

As I was talking with my former classmates, memories of my high school life were popping up in my head. I can say that high school life was the best part of my teenage life.  In the photo shows my batch mates.  Two of them are my neighbors – the girl beside me and the one on the far left.

Behind us is the elementary school and to our left are the junior, senior, and high school administration buildings.  The middle school buildings are located on top of the hill.  My neighborhood is located over the hill so when we go to and from school, we sometimes bypass the main road and take the short cut which is the going up and down the hill.  Going to school was fun because every students in my neighborhood walk to school almost at the same time 6 o’clock in the morning.  Flag ceremony is at 6:30 and classes start at 7. Then we go home for lunch at 12 noon, come back for classes at 1:00 P.M.  Then classes dismiss for the day at 5:30 in the evening.

We Got Enough Snow And Had Fun Outdoors ( Momimhar posted on March 2nd, 2015 )

Hello March!  It was  a wonderful weekend although it was very very cold due to a winter storm.  We didn’t get that much snow but we had enough to be able to play and have fun outdoors.  My darling daughter slept in late so we didn’t go outside until around 2:00 P.M.

We were making a snowgirl again. :)

She was very upset when the snow girl we made a couple of days ago melted.  So we tried making one again today. :)

So white and bright all around.

My wish of a snow before Spring comes has been granted.  Two or three days of snow is quite enough.  Now we are ready for warm weather.  :)

Teething Symptoms In Toddlers ( Momimhar posted on February 28th, 2015 )

My darling daughter is not feeling well lately.  About two weeks ago she had cough, colds, and a fever.  Then over the weekend last weekend, she ran a fever and had loose bowel movement.  She had a low appetite, too.  I was so worried and didn’t get much sleep.

My husband talked to Mom and asked a few questions.  Mom said if K is cutting molars.  Because those are also symptoms of new teeth coming out.  Although K’s dentist told me about the molars still coming, I haven’t checked that yet until few days ago.  When looked at her mouth, I saw two white shades at the very end of the bottom gums.
