For Happy Babies

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Boudreaux's Butt Paste. All opinions are 100% mine.
My friend just gave birth to a bouncy baby boy. He is the cutest baby so far especially when he works on his smiley blue eyes on me. My friend being a first time Mom is always worried about simple things. I can’t blame her. It is her first time and he is her first baby. She only wants the best for his new bundle of joy. One day she was crying on the phone and I panicked. I thought something bad happened to her baby boy. I drove to her house only to find out that her baby blue eyes has diaper rash. Big deal! Yes, indeed.
If you have a baby, there is nothing more important than knowing that your baby feels comfortable and rash-free. So I drove back home and took the Boudreaux's Butt Paste which I supposed to send to my sister-in-law for my 1-year old niece. I gave it to her and will just buy a new one next time.
Boudreaux's Butt Paste® is an amazing product for babies. Momm…

"Me" Time

Hubby was up Byron again gold panning with his friend. I work on weekends now too so I have an excuse not to go with him anymore. Thank God.
After work I went to the store to do some window shopping. I browsed on some new items on sale and ended up buying 2 pairs of shoes. But hey, I got a good deal. [Will write a post about it next.]

On my way home, I decided to stop by Sebago Lake and concluded my weekend "Me Time" spending few minutes at the scenic view parking lot taking in the lake's beautiful scenery.

Yard Sale Madness

It is still summer and most Mainers are still in organizing mode, cleaning up their attics and cellars and disposing their trash. Most of their trash ended up in yard sale and instantly turned into treasures.

This weekend, my friend and I went for another treasure hunting and rounded the entire town and neighboring towns for yard sale. 

We even went as far as New Hampshire in search of the yard sale and my special shampoo.

Crazy Work Schedule

My work schedule is crazy but I love it. I love getting up early in the morning and leaving home at 5 AM. But there are advantages to it like... I usually see the beautiful foggy sunrise at Killick Pond Road.

And when I feel sleepy while driving home, I can pull over in a parking lot and take a nap in my car... with great view.
At the Scenic View on top of a hill at Limerick.
My favorite No. 1 Pond in Sanford.
The Ossippe Lake in Waterboro.

Coupons Rock!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Linens 'N Things. All opinions are 100% mine.
I love coupons. They are one of the best tools that a shopaholic needs to survive in this tough economy. They are one of the best things ever invented to help any shopaholic turn into wise shopper. And they are one of the most important reasons why any shopaholic doesn’t feel guilty for splurging. LOL
Well, I love coupons and I use them… when I don’t forget to bring them when I go shopping. Yeah, that is one problem that I need to deal with. I cut up lots of coupons from the newspapers and magazines but when it is time to go shopping I always forget to bring them so they just expire and become useless. But when it comes to online shopping, that is a different story. I never forget my coupons because I just need the code to enter in a box and I’m all set. I get the discount I deserve.
And speaking of coupons… As a SocialSpark blogger, I got a FREE SHIPPING coupons from Linens 'N Th…

Hubby's Sunset

These are all Hubby's shots.

I cannot take credit for these beautiful sunsets because he was the one who took these photos when he visited the Philippines in 2005.

These photos were taken in Puerto Galera, Oriental Mindoro.

He fell in love with this... before he fell in love with me.

And this is the reason why he married me... I guess. LOL.

The Day I decided to paint again

Today, I finally decided to paint again and give my other passion a second chance. And so I brought the easel out from hiding. And set it out in the backyard.

It was already accumulating cobweb but still in good shape.

Then I brought out the art thingies from where they were tacked away for years.

And set them on the table.

When I was done setting up everything, I tried to get an inspiration.

And looked around for a perfect subject...

for PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! hahahaha

Well... I just paint next time.

Lifestyle Booster

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Boost Mobile. All opinions are 100% mine.
In this modern day of social networking and globalized hook-up, no one can get away without the aid of the “good old phone”. That is because the “good old phone” can do more than place a call. That is why it is very important to have the right network provider that complements your way of life. And since our phone can do more than just a tool to call we do need a more reliable network like Boost Mobile to keep up with our lifestyle.
Boost Mobile is convenient. You can use your debit/credit card to make a payment or sign-up for worry-free automatic payments. Your friend or family member can also make a payment for a Boost Mobile customer if you are really too busy to do it yourself. Activation process is easy and no hassle. And you can replenishment options or you have an option to sign up for extras. And there are lots of cool Phone features like its ability to connect to Social Media site fro…

My Favorite Season: Yard Sale

One of the most important activities that I enjoy during summertime in Maine is shopping. Well, shopping for a true-blooded shopaholic is an all-year-round activity and perhaps a whole-year-round season, of course. But for me who is a former shopaholic convert I only always look forward for summertime yard sale because I can get a lot of value for my dollars.

I enjoy “treasure hunt game” when I was a kid and now that I am a grown-up I apply that skill I learned from childhood in my yard sale hopping and shopping spree. I love to challenge myself with my sense of creativity to convert or transform old things into something new and useful. I love the feeling of victory when I can find things under the rubble of piles upon piles of old stuff. I love the feeling of triumph when I stumble on some really new things that owners didn’t have the chance to use because they didn’t actually realize they have them until it’s time to dispose them. And most importantly, I love yard sale because I d…

Passion for Passion

I was looking for my flip-flops the other day and I couldn't find them. What I found was the canvas and easel that Hubby gifted me 3 Christmases ago. I almost forgot I got those. I have a complete set of painting materials that remained untouched and unused. But I have an alibi. I AM BUSY!
I am busy taking pictures, blogging and facebooking that is why I forgot all about it. I forgot all about my other passion that used to relax me and give me joy. And just like any of my many hobbies... it's part of who I am.
So maybe one of these days... I will be doing something different. I just hope I still have "it".
This is Hubby's photo of a school of fish he took during one of his scuba diving adventures in Puerto Galera, in Mindoro Philippines.
This is my own interpretation of the picture above which I did in watercolor [my one and only watercolor painting] which was a birthday gift to Hubby.

Summer Vacation, Last Hurrah

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Hiltons of Branson. All opinions are 100% mine.

Summer is already on a countdown. We have only few more weeks left and Fall is almost here. I can already feel it in the air. The days seem to be getting shorter now and the nights are already getting colder. And yes, I already saw a couple of maple leaves turning yellow.
Well, I can’t stop summer but I can make the most out of it before school starts again. But there is one problem. You see, you have read all about gold panning here. And gold panning is the only thing that Hubby wants to do right now. So how can I convince him to go where I want to? And where do I want to go? Missouri.
I have not been to Missouri but I heard all about it from a friend of mine. She and her hubby have been there and she can’t stop telling me all the good things about Branson and how they enjoyed their vacation there. They are planning to go back there again next summer. According to her, they stayed at the…
