I personally do not do our laundry my husband does. :D I got lucky with that didn't I? But we both fold while the kids roll around the clothes. I do CDL = cloth diaper laundry. As for drying, I hang dry everything and if I have to dry them in the dryer I use 6 Wooly Rounds!
If you were given one day to time travel and change/see what would that be? the past or your future?
I'm a very super duper big fan of anything time travel movie or books! Especially Back to the Future films! Personally, I would be too scared to go back in the past or go sometime in my future and change it. I would definitely go back or to the future to just see how things went or are. If I changed anything I might not be married and have my kids and that honestly scares the living tar out of me...though sometimes I'd like to silence in the house ad go out and do whatever whenever...lol. But chyeah! People can you believe it?! Today is the day Marty McFly arrives when he travels to the future...as I first watched the film in the 90s when I was little oh how I did wish for cool "realistic" holographic sharks to attack my face in the middle of the town center or have simple... FLYING CARS! >.< I know my husband asks me for a flying car every other day because of the bullcrap traffic he sees going to and from work on 287! Well did anyone else think that we'd be future like flying cars and every house having finger print scans for keyless entry by now in 2012? lol Shoot I thought we would but then again I was like 12 lol. Happy Back to the Future everyone!
When he goes out of his way to do something for me when I am either too busy or just can't...and it's usually something I must really want. He not a romantic and neither am I and just having him go out of his way to make me happy is the best!

Ok since I like doing my own nails, I decided to do another DIY nail tutorial. Easy enough my 3 year old helped me! :D So who has never thought of inhaling a jaw breaker when we were all young?! I know I never passed licking it for ten minutes then I'd just give up. It's summer and thought this jaw breaking nails tutorial would be kickass!
What you'll need:
white nail polish
2 or more bright colored nail polish
nail polish remover
straw cut to 2 inches
First I color my nails white. I then cover the top and bottom of my nail with tape. I know it sounds weird but it'll help cut down the mess. I dip the straw into whatever brightly colored nail polish you picked out and blow the end of the straw on my nail. See I've just created a scattered effect. Pretty easy! I even had Max help blow the nail polish on my nails! It was fun, easy, and quick! After it all dries I put on a top coat and voila! Finished! It looks cool for a fun summer event or just casual look. Have fun y'all and enjoy!
Oh My Gawd...Jenny's knocked up and Eia's going away for good! :/
Since I'm super glued to my family and anything related to my outside world I usually drag my family with me...I got to reunite with some of my high school girl friends...through a baby shower for Jenny and a going away for Eia. It was a bitter sweet moment seeing Jenny pregnant [due July 15th, 2012] and Eia going back to the Philippines PERMANENTLY. [June 24th, 2012] I got to catch up with old friends Max got to play many games. Dean was happy seeing and meeting new people. We also played volleyball...that was amusing...So sorry Vee for super chucking the ball at your tatas! >.< Sowwie! Anyhoo lots of fun, lots of food, and pictures...This Mama is tired and gonna hit the haaaayyyyyyy! Good night moon!
When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?
When I was a kid I wanted to be a daredevil! A famous one! I was very ballsy when I was little. When someone dare someone else to do something and they didn't I'd be the first to volunteer. Like do cart wheels on the roof of my house. I also wasn't thinking straight. Lol I was a kid. :D
Dean's been crawling for about a week now. First dragging his face in to get to another destination. Usually provoked by a shiny phone or toy. :D Today he sat. Still needs help but boy oh boy...he's getting so big and independent day by day! he is 5.5 months old, weighs 20 pounds and 28 inches tall. he is half Max's size and weight...AMAZING! Children really do grow up fast! I'm so going to hug and kiss Dean until he cries tonight thats for sure! lol
[woke up from nap crazy hair and crawling already]
The most recent words of wisdom You heard that stuck With you.
"you can't control everything!" my mother said to me. As much of a control freak that I am...I know I can't even tough I try so hard. It's ok if it doesn't turn out the way you want it. As my husband says to me all the time, "You can't always get what you want!" lol :D
Fluff Mail: Cloth diaper and or it's accessories that you ordered online that's now getting carried out of the Ups/Usps/dhl/fedex truck and you run faster that you have since high school to receive the mail!
For us Moms [usually stay at home Mamas] ordering online is the only way to get cloth diapers and its accessories. Especially for me...I'm a Co-op Addict! In my older posts about my cloth diaper stash I love Alvababy cloth diapers. [one size pocket diapers] Mamas like me ordering online is like crack...and OOOOoooooo especially in a Co-op sooooo mucchhhhhhh mooorrrreeee CHEAPER....you know what that means Mamas..."Hey Daddy I just found a Co-op on Alvababy cloth diapers...so now that they are super cheaper I can buy more!" Bwuahaha! [evil laugh.] Rad looks at me and I can tell he wants to strangle me lol. Anyhoo to cut to the chase I've purchase Alvababy more prints! Sunbaby also in prints! My Little Legs and Meluna! Ah and oh in the Co-op Alvababy cloth diapers cost $2-3 per diaper when it is usually $6!
So now that I look at it...I have more diapers but do not have any more micro fleece liners. So being cheap I went to Joann's Fabric [my crack store lol] and got 50% off micro fleece for a yard. I hacked it up and got 47...YES 47 micro fleece liners!!! Amazing usually if I have bought the Bummis reusuable micro fleece liners for 45 [5 in a pack] it would cost me around $50.00... A-HELL NO! I got it for less than $5! Ah Amazing! It only took me 20 minutes to cut it all up...20 minutes because Max kept taking the fabric and flying around with it using it as a super hero cape. :/ lol. Uhhhh-maze-ING! Note: You can get pretty much any liner you have at home too like an old fleece and old shirt and cut it up...also very VERY cheap! Ok I'm obviously too cracked out to blog anymore...This Mama is out!
Simple and quick to cook...my chicken breast cutlets!
What you'll need:
Several thinly sliced chicken breast
Salt and pepper
At least two eggs
Cooking oil [or is baking cooking spray]
after thinly slicing the chicken breast season with salt and pepper. Scramble the eggs and dip chicken in the egg bath next dip chicken in the bread crumbs. Place battered chicken in cooking oil or in bake pan. Fry until evenly cooked on each side or 350 degrees for 20-25 mins. Enjoy!
It's Father's Day...what are you and your families doing today? We decided that we are going to Whippany New Jersey's Train Ride! We've been wanting to go since before I got pregnant with Dean. But never got the chance to. Now we got too and I don't regret it at all. lol I wasn't sure if I was going to get sick in the train. It was a prefect day...the weather was wonderful sunny and the wind passing by was icing on the cake! The ride took about 45 minutes but we enjoyed it. Dean even got to stick his head out at top speed lol. During a crossing we all got to wave at the cars and people...truly was a fun day! Make sure to treat your Daddy's great today! Because I know how we Mama's drag Mother's Day for the whole weekend and Daddy only gets one and back to the norm the next day. lol.
Fitness guru or couch potato? Talk about your fitness habits.
I am not the best person to talk about fitness. Lol I honestly do not work out at all. I planned to after having Dean but life happen and I didn't make it into a priority to work out daily. All I do is take care of the kids, run errands, and take walks outside when it's not too hot out. That's all.
I love giving gifts wether it be a big event/holiday or not. Father's Day is very big to me. I love my father and my husband. My father has been there for me even at my worst and believe me I WAS BAD! Bwuhahaha! As my for kickass husband...I know I can count on him for anything and that he'll do anything for me and our growing family! So for you cheap-os out there JOKE! well anyone who is crafty and have children you can help them with this cool 8 bit pop up style card. My husband is big on computers and thought this would be perfect! Enjoy...and Happy Father's Day to all you badass Daddys out there!
Since I have kids, I looked into a great way to teach them about this great holiday and have fun! Python Printable Games has an awesome 4th of July Party Games Packet. Easy enough to just pick a game, click and print! They have so many different games that children, teens, and adults can do.
