Mommy Talks: Pregnancy Tips

December 27, 2014


Hi Mommsies!

Welcome back. I hope you had a great vacation with your families.
Today, Adi has been really behaved and more of a grown up boy already. He has been showing signs of independence and wants to do things on his own. He has grown a lot. I'm happy and grateful for yet another year coming our way. Having a child is exciting and to me it is but a blessing. 

Having a child is never a joke. And being a mom is never an easy task. I keep on saying that cause it has been 2 years and the times got more and more hectic nowadays. Planning for your family is the best way to outdo it.

Having baby number 2 is well part of it. But both hubby and I decided to have another addition hopefully by the time that we already wed in front of the Altar. Church wedding is on top of our list after we were civilly wed last July.

If you are in your baby planning phase now and wanted some help, well here is the answer to pregnancy woes. 



Some couples who are in their trying to conceive journey may have a hard time getting pregnant. Some of them just don’t know where to startPregnancytips.org has a few steps you can do in order to boost your chances of conceiving. 

1. Track your ovulation. For women, it’s very important to get to know your body. Ovulation is a small window of opportunity that you have where you are most fertile, that could last for about 2-4 days only. You may want to be able to make sure the sperm is able to catch the egg on that short window of opportunity to boost your chances. You can use an ovulation predictor kit, a basal body thermometer or an online ovulation calculator to help you pinpoint your ovulation days. 

2. Protect your sperm. For men, it’s important to keep your sperms healthy by making sure you avoid the sperm killers such as Jacuzzis, saunas and hot tubs as well as using laptops on your lap for a long time. 

3. Stay healthy. Make sure you and your partner get rid of the bad habits like junk foods, smoking and alcohol. Make sure to have fruits and vegetables in your diet, they play an important role in boosting your fertility.

Isn't that a breeze?

Happy Planning mommsies!

#Christmas2014 Part 1

December 23, 2014

Hi Mommsies!

I missed all of you. How was your week?

I know your all very excited right? It is Christmas once again. As for us here in the Philippines,
Christmas is a Fun-filled Celebration.
It is the most exciting wonderful time of the year as we get to spend more time with our loved ones. Celebrate the season of love and giving.
A time of the year where we get to give and receive gifts. Spend our bonuses and enjoy it with our families.

As for me, I'd spend it by paying off my debt first. Here is to hoping a debt-free 2015, ayt?
Yeah, much of my Christmas bonus gets to that. But I'm hoping I get to save some too for Adi.

As a working mom it is inevitable to not be part of the ever famous and much-anticipated Christmas Party. In the Compnay where I work for, I had the chance to be able to join and enjoy three awesome parties!
There were 3 parties. Yes, not one but 3. Year-end Party, Departmental Party and the Area Party. Woohoo! Amazing noh?

So much of the merry making, I got one problem.
I just can't seem to get a hold of time. I have been busy with family-life and my work. That is why I have not been blogging for quite some time. I was also thinking of doing another giveaway but didn't make it so maybe I'll try again by January 2015. *fingers-crossed*

Since then, I have been hooked to IG (instagram) on my mobile phone. I love the app soo much!
I can easily share my photos and updates to my 3Fs (friends, family, followers). It saves me so much time. I can easily tap the buttons and off they go sync to my FB and twitter accounts. See? isn't it just a breeze.

the boss' gift from cafe george (what's inside: cassava cake that's soo tasty) =)

the party poppers. colorful balloons for our department party at Handuraw

my gift for my kris kringle =)

paper boat for our nautical party theme. Cute DIY idea 
cute bear from Baby Bench given to us by our TL. =)

What i got. Wish truly granted. I loved it!
the great food. Than you Lord for this awesome meal


The place and the food at Handuraw was bliss. I truly enjoyed our NAUTICAL PARTY there!




P.S. Bonus Post:
 when I got home this Hubby was just super happy. I guess it is because he won the raffle from their Company Christmas Party. Well, my inner guts are really to be trusted. As he was texting me about it I said 'you should join the party, pa. you'll never know you might win in the raffle. just shake off the thing (he will leave his job by Jan 2015 since he was terminated by his employer.' As for me, I am partly happy and sad. Happy that he will get to spend more time with me and Adi and sad that I will have to shoulder now most of our household expenses. More challenges and we only get even stronger as a family. Right mommsies?
Excuse this photo, of Adi and our bed so much of a havock I was trying to capture my hubby's new toy.
He got it from their Company party raffle. It was just the most exciting Christmas for him, Coz aside from that he also got himself a brand new Samsung S4. Yeah, Spell Jealous of me.


Over all, I am still blessed and I'm grateful for all the blessings!
Stay blessed Mommsies! Enjoy your #Christmas2014 and thanks for reading. Stay tuned for the Part 2 of this series, ha?

First out of Town Destination: Enchanted Kingdom

December 14, 2014


Hi Mommsies! How are ya'll doin?
It has been a while and I haven't yet posted any part 2s on the latest blog post series.
Well anyway, sharing with you some of my adventure at the ever famous amusement park in the Philippines found here in Laguna, the Land of the Enchanted -- Enchanted Kingdom.

I have been really meaning to get myself out there. To finally travel.
That was my first time to. Not minding to master my Tagalog speaking skills. I miss this place.

And as I type this blog post, I am still reminiscing the days that I get to spend there.
I guess that's what travelers feel when they get to a place for the first time. It's like the feeling of wonder.
An urge to wander. the thing they call -wanderlust. Now I know how that exactly feels.

It was a moment. A moment in my life that I don't want to miss out.
Although deep down inside, I am badly missing Adi, I miss him so much that very day.
That I was so jealous of the other moms out there with their family, and most specially they are with their kids.

Somehow, I just imagined how it'd feel traveling with him and my hubby. Well, just wishful thinking noh?

Anyways, maybe someday i'd be able to do that. Someday. So, i'll go over and list that down in my bucket list. 

trying out the EKstreme Tower. It had me shaking and it really was a great ride. =) It'll literally lift you out of your seat.


The place was kinda hot so we just waited before riding the other rides. 
Stayed in this spot for quite sometime to cool down. in the picture are my colleagues' children. they are really adorable and they speak fluent english. yeah talk of nosebleed.. =)
with mami zen and gee, my mommy colleagues with their kiddos. photo opp before riding 

a shameless selfie. =) pardon the face though
