Psssssstttt...I will reveal one of my secrets... Do you know that I am so scared of any kinds of squirmy wormy? Yes I am! .. I can't even look at them when they are moving.. So freaky ewww! My husband laughs at me whenever I see a worm because I can scream lol.
The other day, I was busy doing the laundry while hubby and EJ are in the garage cleaning the car. He called me and said "Please come quick and bring the camera." That is what he was playing with.. A freaking caterpillar wahhhhhhh.
I called Rylie and thought that she would be sacred but heck no, she liked it too... I am glad they are not like me. BUT, they are scared of spiders and I am NOT! We use to play with spiders when I was a kid.

The pores of my skin were big while taking pictures of my burritos playing with the caterpillar hahaha.
And then they decided to keep it inside the house. They put it in a container and put some leaves some leaves on it for him to eat. Oh lord, my kids are fearless lol.

Roses in my garden

Here are the roses in our garden. This yellow one is planted at the back. when I planted this two years ago, I thought that it wasn't going to live because it was already dried out when I bought it on a reduced price. I gave it a try and she did live. When I came back from Korea, she is so tall and giving us so many blooms.

I took different shots on different angles, I just love capturing the beauty of this rose.
I took these shots last week after the rain had stop.

I love the scent of this pink rose planted at the side of our back porch. I got this from my father-in-law's garden two years ago.

I bought this on a reduce price too when we just transferred to our home. I planted this in front of our house. This is an attention catcher as it blooms a lot.

I love this one, although it doesn't grow very good. I planted this together with the yellow one but this one is still on the ground while the yellow is so tall. Despite of the height, this has a lot of buds too but my dear Chelsea ate most of them and only one has left.

My FIL gave me two pots of miniature roses the other day and I planted it in front of our house. Hopefully it will grow. Dad said it will because he thinks I have a "green finger.. he meant green thumb". But let us see.


The theme this week on Mommy Moment is "Motherhood". When it comes to motherhood my greatest inspiration is my mother because she never gave up on us even though life was so tough on her especially in raising 9 kids without any help. I could never top her hard work and dedication when it comes to raising kids. I love you so much Ma!

Every time I am having hard time with my two kids, I always think about my mother . I always tell myself that if Mama can do it and so can I. I am blessed with a family-oriented husband so when he told me that our priority is our kids, that I can stay at home so I could personally raise them, I was very happy.. still is. I know a lot of friends who would love to be a stay at home mom but they are force to work because they need to. I always thank God for blessing me a good life and for giving me the great career in the Universe, being a MOM!

When we were driving going down West Union last week, I asked my husband to slow down because I thought that I've seen a rainbow. I haven't seen any rainbow at ever since I came here in the States so I got excited. But when we finally stopped at the cemetery to visit my FIL's parents, my thought of a rainbow was wrong. I don't know what makes the cloud looks reddish in some part but it wasn't a rainbow for sure. Here are some shots I took.
Pretty isn't it?

Organic Insect Spray

Aside from my dog, Chelsea, who love eating my flowers, insects are also one of my flower's predator. Below is a photo of my yellow rose at our backyard. I was happy that this rose is tall and that our dog can't eat it. The only problem is the insect that starts to eat it. Do you see the see the defective petals at the bottom? I keep removing the worms and the eggs that I see in it but every morning, they're back again. I have to get me an insecticide which is safe for the dogs and for my kids since I can't do my gardening without them by my side.

I search for organic insect spray and found the EndALL insect spray. This insect spray is suppose to kill 45 kinds of insects of all stages, meaning from eggs to adult. This would be a good one for me to buy since I have two dogs and two children, plus using an organic spray also helps not to pollute or not to cause harm to our environment. One thing that I like is it's affordable price. How about you, do you get any insects in your garden? Do your prefer using organic spray to kill them? I DO!

Installing the Gates of the Fence

Hello everyone, how is the start of your week? Mine was busy, I just now have the time to open my blog and make some update. We went to Lowe's today and bought the water sealer that we will apply on the inside part of the fence. Below are the pictures when hubby and I, with the help of Dad, installed the gates. We did not buy a ready made gate because it was a little expensive.

My husband just made tow gates out of the panels that we bought.

Now that our fence is up, I am glad because the kids can just play at the back without me worrying that some bad people will harm them. The deers also can't access with my flowers anymore, the only problem is that my dog Chelsea loves eating all of the flowers she can't find wahhhhh.

We used solid stain outside the fence to hide the grains of the wood and we will be using clear and natural look of stain inside. Hubby will use a sprayer inside to finish it quicker. Will post the painted fence net time.
