Scenic Drive Gone Bad

Yesterday, after we attended the mass at church, the kids asked if we can go to Wendy's  to grab a bite and that's what we did.  After we ate, I asked my husband if we can go for a drive   in the Colliers area since it was raining hard and I wanted to  find the house for sale that we saw online.  Right in the middle of our drive, we heard an awfukl sound, my husband  said that it sounded like a flat tire.  
It was raining very hard so he  looked for a safe  roadside where we could pull over and check.  As soon as my husband came out, the rain miraculously stopped, thank you  God!  Upon assesment, he told me that the tire was indeed flat.  So glad we did not have an accident.
He took out the spare tire from our car and  removed the  flat one.  He was worried that he damaged  the rim  which would cost   extra if it is.  After changing the tire, we  went ahead and  started looking for  our way home, we  don't know where we at at this time (that's us, we have terrible sense of direction but that's part of the adventure).  Anyway, we found ourselves in Pennsylvania, lol.  
When we finally found our way home, I told my husband to check if Walmart's car parts is open and was relieved that they are.  So we bought two new tires.  OUR Adventure ended up costing us $179.14, ouch.    I told my husband to just look at the bright side, it's good that it happen  already and not when he is going to work.  This way, we had the time to  fix the problem.  OK, bad luck comes in threes so firs, our  garage door is broke so that would be  under $500, the second is the tires, so now I am praying that whatever is the last one would not cost us an arm and leg.  Our budget is  very dented  as of this writing wahhh.

Best Winter Fun

It is so hot right now so I thought of digging some of the winter photos to cool me down (weird huh), lol.   Anyway, I  for got to  post this anyway.  These photos were taken in January after they got out from school. Kids don't mind if it's freezing, they just want to have fun  playing in the snow.
 See how much snow is pouring?  Yep, we walk to school, rain or shine.  It's a five minute walk so  why bother to   burn gas for a short distance like that.  Besiddes, it's a great exercise for me and the kids especially on Winter that we seldom  go for a long walk.
IJ is very tough on cold weather, he  can take cold more than  Rylie.  Me and my daughter is  the same, our bodies are always cold so Winter is not for us.

So yeah, it  must be weird wreading this post containing Winter photos but this really cools me down now that it is too hot!

Dog Preferences

My husband's type of dog contradicts my type. He love English bulldog but I am not fond of it.  We ended up  having a Jack Russel Terrier and this  big one that we  got from our neighbor when he was a pup.  He is a mixed breed with miniature pinscher and a doberman pinscher.
 His Dad was a doberman pinscher while his mom was a miniature pinscher.  Bolt is such a loving dog.  He walways a hug from us and always  wants to cuddle with us.
Having dogs is really nice especially when you have kids. The bonding of the pets and kids are  awesome.

Upcoming Piano Recital this Weekend

My kids  are having their piano recital this coming weekend.  I haven't decide which dress my daughter would wear of the dresses she have here at home.  
Anyway, my plan is for her to wear red since my son would be wearing a red polo shirt.  This year will be my son's  first time  doing  a recital.  He is a bit nervous that's why the teacher only assigned him a son with a basic notes to  do.  I am sure that he would do good  just like  her sister.  It would be fun to watch both of them  play piano during the recital.

Redo Your Bathroom: Top Tips from Homeowners

 Renovation projects aren’t always fun, but when you want a new look or a home with improve features, they’re pretty much the only way to go. If you’re ready to renovate your bathroom, you might be wondering what you should do first though.
While there are tons of ways to renovate a bathroom, there are a few that are ideal for homeowners on a budget or people who just can’t do everything at once. Use this guide to help you start your renovation from the ground up.

Start with the Floor

One of the first things you’ll notice in a bathroom is what the floor looks like. If you have old linoleum, or a house that was built in the 1960s or 1970s with carpet, it’s definitely time for an upgrade.

The best material for many bathrooms is natural stone tiles. They’re durable, easy to clean and they’ll last as long as your house.

Upgrade the Vanity

The next thing most people see in a bathroom is the vanity. If yours is looking outdated or just a little bit beat up, it could be time to replace it.
To give your bathroom a more modern look, go for a vanity finished in a unique material like glass or polished wood. You can even choose a metal vanity, and these can look both modern or more antique depending on the type of finish you pick.

Make sure you pair the right sink with your vanity.
