I Will Be Working As A Substitute Teacher ( Momimhar posted on February 2nd, 2017 )

You know, I have been a stay-at-home mom for six years now.  I talked to my dear husband about working again.  I was a customer service associate at a Dillards department store in Fort Worth.  But because my pregnancy was a high risk case, I had to quit work.   I was under treatment from the first trimester up to the second trimester of my pregnancy due to a respiratory infection. Then I had gestational diabetes so I was on a strict diet.  Although my pregnancy was a challenge, I enjoyed it. The sacrifice was worth it.

Back to the idea of going back to work, my husband said it has to be a non-retail job.  You see in retail, you have to work on weekends and night shifts. Also, you have to work on holidays as well.

Now that my darling daughter is in Kindergarten, I had the chance to hunt for a job nearby.  My husband suggested to apply for a teaching or a non-teaching position at K’s school.  I checked online if there were job openings and I gladly saw one that I was interested in.  November of last year I applied for a substitute teacher position.  As you know, I taught Computer Fundamentals and Typing at a college in the Philippines.  So I had a bit of a teaching  background. 🙂 So I was called to attend the Substitute Teacher Professional Development Training/Seminar.  Part of the on-boarding, I went to IndetoGo in Allen to have my fingerprints taken (required background check for education purposes).  As soon as I submitted all the documents required, I got hired and my sub-teaching assignments will start next week.  It’s going to be challenging but it will be fun.  Besides,  I will be working at K’s school so she will be happy for sure.

It is another milestone.  Good luck to me.

Save Money With Discount Coupons On Groupon ( Momimhar posted on September 15th, 2016 )

This is a sponsored post.  All opinions are 100% mine.

When you are a stay home mother saving money becomes more important. It can be simple to others but to me it  is also a process and need keen analysis. It is time consuming but fulfilling, at the same time, when you know how much money you save.

Using coupons  is the best way to start saving in your groceries,  clothing, restaurants and accommodations, amusement park, etc. There are multiple sources to gather  coupons, I started with newspaper inserts and online coupon sites and getting coupon codes from Groupon website, which I recommend because you can get Groupon goods such as electronics, home goods, and services for cheap.  You can also enjoy the  discounts in department stores, food and services, classes, and  much more. Actually, using online codes is convenient and you are able to use it right away…no clipping needed.

While enjoying using coupons keep it in mind also to check the expiration dates and some other coupon policies before  purchasing a product or service.   It happened several times to me while doing online shopping or even in store shopping that the coupons were not accepted because it was expired (which I overlooked).  Either pay the whole amount or cancel your transaction.  This is the disadvantage of printed coupons.

I haven’t had problems with Groupon coupons so far.  In fact, I shopped for gift items last year for my family and friends.  I find Groupon goods very inexpensive because of big discounts offered by the site.  I even availed dining discounts at local restaurants in my town.  Very convenient.  So try going to Groupon and check them out now.  Follow them on social for updates and promotions.

The Holidays are fast approaching, you know.  Happy saving!

Tips To Create Delightfully Decorated Cakes ( Momimhar posted on December 6th, 2015 )

a-wedding cake2

Cake decorating is a rewarding hobby or full-time job. The cake decorator’s results and proficiency are easy to see. The right decorating supplies, along with the decorator’s techniques or finishing touches, make the difference. Adding roses, fondant accents, and borders to the cake takes a delicious confection to the next level.

The art of cake decorating and cake design have become more popular as millions of TV viewers watch master bakers and designers perform. Cake buyers want special design and customization when they order birthday or celebration cakes. Home bakers can also learn cake decorating to delight family and friends. Cake decorating supplies in Michigan are essential to novices and expert cake decorators.

Use the following tips to create delightfully decorated cakes:

Tip #1: Buy and use spatulas. Spatulas are a must when preparing a perfect cake for decoration. Cake crumbs on the surface can ruin the appearance of the most perfectly smooth icing.

Remove the cooled baked cake from the pan using a small spatula. Brush crumbs from the top. Add four tablespoons of corn syrup for a layer or larger cake to thin the icing. To ice or frost the cake, use the icing spatula to quickly spread the icing. Do not press the icing into the cake to avoid any crumbs.

Tip #2: Make swirls. Creating swirls adds a simple but fancy appearance to the cake. Hold an icing-filled decorating bag with desired tip at a 90 degree angle about 1/4th inch from the cake surface. Start at the outer rim of the cake and work in an inward direction. To add visual interest, pipe a second spiral on top of the first.

Tip #3: Write on the cake. Adding a name or phrase to the iced cake adds a speech touch. Fill the decorating bag about half full with thin icing. Select and attach the decorating tip. Don’t point the tip down towards the cake: elevate it a bit and use steady pressure to create a steady line.

Allow the decorative icing to drop onto the iced surface and then pull the tip away. Before writing another word, check the decorating tip and clean it to ensure best results.

Conclusion

Cake decorating is a fun and enjoyable way to make celebrations even more special. Consider taking a cake decorating class to more quickly master the art of cake decoration.

Home Cleaning Equipment Fits Your Budget – Vacuum Cleaner ( Momimhar posted on November 17th, 2015 )

I was very happy that my dear husband made up his mind to replace the old Bissell vacuum cleaner.  He bought it 10 years ago and replacing parts costs more.  So he let me pick a new vacuum cleaner.  It took me a little while to decide which one to buy because there were so many good ones to choose from.

Buying an expensive with high quality performance vacuum cleaner is somehow an investment, I stayed at the average item cost.  I didn’t want to spend more than $300.  I only spent around $99 for our new Hoover WindTunnel Series Upright Bagless vacuum cleaner.  It’s been with us for months now and I don’t have any complain so far.

What I really love about it is the power cord rewind.  I don’t have to coil it every time.  The filter is easy to clean since you can just rinse it with water and dry it overnight or 24 hours.  Vacuum cleaner are really a big help in cleaning especially if you have a carpeted home or if you have furry pets.  I would recommend Hoover WindTunnel Series Upright Bagless vacuum cleaner.  You can buy this product at your favorite home store and in department stores or online.  This can be a great gift item to yourself or to someone.  🙂

Look Your Best On Your Wedding Day ( Momimhar posted on April 16th, 2015 )

What a great week.  I am back to my part time job as an after-school babysitter.  My friend came back to work this month after three months of leave.  Isn’t that awesome?  To have a leave that long is very relaxing I think.  So I didn’t have work for three months, too. I just stayed home with my little girl and tried my best to do some organization in the house.  It wasn’t very successful actually. Not much done…I don’t know. The days passed by so quickly that before I knew, it’s April already.

Anyway, it’s my wedding anniversary month.  My husband and I went on a weekend getaway to celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary.  It didn’t seem that long to me.  I still remember my wedding day.  It was a chilly day. 🙂  I was wearing a halter wedding gown and it was half open in the back so I was shivering during the ceremony.  If I had an idea how cool the weather in Spring season would be here in the US, I should have bought a long sleeved wedding gown like this.
