Scott's Florida Select Natural Eucalyptus Mulch

This post brought to you by Scotts Miracle-Gro. All opinions are 100% mine.

We had a very  busy day today which explains why it is  almost one  in the morning and I am still awake.  I have pending tasks  to do  and I want to  finish  them before I go to sleep.  Anyhow, we went to the park and had a picnic,  then we headed to  the next town to visit my  brother-in-law.  When we came back, I mowed the grass and did some gardening.  Glad that Spring is finally setting in.  I can see my irises with buds  already and I wish that I have some Scotts Florida Select Natural Eucalyptus Mulch to spread in my flower beds.  I have no budget for mulch yet but I am saving some so I can put some necessary mulch in my garden.  For those who knows me well,  you know that I love gardening.    That's my favorite hobby during  warm  days.

As you can see in the first photo, we gave our front yard a lift by adding some rocks and plants.  We bought a truck load of rocks and  we spread them on the edges of the yard.

Here  is a list of  gardening supplies that you need when starting a project:
1. Shovel
2. Rake
3.  Flower Pots
4.  Gardening Soil
5.  Scotts Nature Scapes mulch
6.  Seedling or   ready-to-transfer  plants.

So what's special about Scott's mulch?  No waste food is included so you don't have to worry about the smell.  What I like about using mulch is that, it really prevents the weeds from coming up.   So the next time you are looking for a  good  mulch to put in your garden, check out the products mentioned above.

Old Gem

My father-in-law always address himself as an "old fart" but I always think of him as an "old gem" for his wits and wisdom. He is a very loving   man who exudes  care for everyone.  He told me once that he wants to live   his last few years  of life like Jesus, that no matter how bad a person is, he still  like  them because there is an inner good in them.  I felt bad  when we visited him yesterday  because he told me that I should call him everyday because he gets lonely and bored at home.  Hubby and I offered him to  live with us  but he doesn't want to be a burden to anyone which I don't think would be a case anyway.  
Photos were taken a couple of weeks ago when we went to the park with him
He wants us to visit his two sisters this summer so we told him that  we  can go  at the end of May when the kids are off from school already.  We want to take the opportunity of taking him  because it's very rare that he wants to go somewhere.

 Oh it is so nice to  be able to enjoy the outdoor activities once again.    I felt like the winter stayed so long.  We've got some warm days for the last few days but now it is cool again, in fact  we will have some frost tonight, according to the weather channel.

Festival of Nations

Last Saturday was the Festival of Nation celebration here in Weirton.  We did not get to go until  NooN because our daughter had an Experience day in school that morning..  We missed an hour of  action at the Community Center.
We did not get to see the performances of the Filipino Dance Troupe as they  have performed earlier.
After an hour of  wandering and looking at traditional stuff displayed at the Center, we went home.  There are ITalian and Indian Foods being sold at the food booths.
I hope you are having a good weekend.  It's rainy, windy,  and chilly at our end.

The Croods Movie, Fox's Den Pizza, and More

The Croods (2013) Poster
We watched the movie "The Croods" last Friday.  It was an animated avatar packed with action and hilarious  scenarios.  I definitely recommend this  movie to watch for the whole family.  From the start to finish, it was hilarious and lots of lesson to learn.  The voices of the stars featured Emma Stone, Nicolas Cage, and Ryan Reynolds.

"The film is set in a prehistoric era known as The Croodaceous, A period which contains fantastical creatures, when a man's position as a "Leader of the Hunt" is threatened by the arrival of a prehistoric genius who comes up with revolutionary new inventions, like fire, as they trek through a dangerous but exotic land in search of a new home." -

After we  got out from the movie theater, we  dropped by at the nearby pizza house and redeemed the free pizza coupon they sent us.  While waiting for our order,  the Burritos colored some arts  given by the crew and  I snapped these shots using my SG phone.
On the other note, I am glad that Spring has finally  come  at our end and that my kids are now free from any sickness.  Below is the snap shots I took of my daughter after they came home from the hospital during her last  test regarding  the  infection.  Showing her medical bondage and  bracelet.  

I wish you all a lovely week!

Saving Tips

If you are a stay-at-home-mom like me, I am sure that you are always in the look out for ways on how you can save on things that you need for your home and family.  It's one of the many reasons why I love blogging because I get to discover   websites where you can find great deals  through the blogs that I visit.  I recently found the Valpak, a website where you can find   Saving Tips on  tires, dining out, carpet care, using online coupons, and more.  I love the ideas  and tips that you can find in the said blog.  

I have been browsing  for deals on our  upcoming trip this summer.  We haven't purchase our plane tickets and hotel reservations yet.  Hubby found a great price for   airfare last week but the  available dates  does not coincide with the  vacation date that  we have planned.  I hope that we can still find a good deal  so we can save money  for our trip.

Traveling with children can be a bit challenging  but if you will plan ahead, it could save you time and money.  I have been  reviewing some products that we will need for our upcoming  trip like sun screen,  beach outfit for my kids, and other stuff that we need.  I save   a big amount by offering some companies  my honest review and I get to keep their products.

Another thing to keep in mind when traveling with kids is to make sure that you have something that they could munch  on during the flight so they won't get hungry.  You should also bring some  coloring books or a small game that they can play to avoid boredom.

Easter Weekend Fun

Hello everyone, how was your Lenten/Easter  celebration?

Ms. Burrito  was eagerly making breakfast until her  brother found the Easter baskets that the "Easter Bunny" has delivered for them.  They got busy digging their  basket so hubby continued cooking breakfast while I made some deviled eggs that we have to brought to  the Easter Egg Hun party in the afternoon.

We are very near to the church so we figured, in five minutes we can be there.  What we forgot  is that, it's Easter and  some parishioners who only goes to church during this time and Christmas  will also come.  It was already packed when we arrived, hubby found it hard to  find a parking  spot.  We had no choice but to go to the balcony of the church, it was packed there too. 
After the mass, we came home and ate lunch.  I made some pigs in a blankets and then we went to Starvaggi for the party.  It was rainy and cold, gladly I brought  gloves for us and a blanket too.   Regardless of the weather condition, we did have a great time!
The kids had a blast!

Online Pharmacy

Having an access to the Internet is a great advantage because you can pretty much buy things that you need online.  Another advantage is the  price comparison which leads you to finding the best price for the the stuff you want to buy.  With the existence of  online companies,  the competition makes it  easier to  find a good price that would best suit your budget.
