Summer Snacks and Refreshers at S&R Membership

It's a super hot summer! As in, kahit nakaaircon na at electric fan pa ramdam mo pa din ang init. More pa if you are travelling on the road like we did last weekend. The car's aircon cannot handle the heat outside so look at our boy, kawawa naman.

By the way, he removed his seat belt when we were already near our destination but he suddenly fell asleep. When I look at the back seat ayan na, kaya pala natahimik. Haha!

But I must admit even if it's scorching hot outside, masarap mag road trip at mag-outing hindi ba? Just make sure you bring lots of snacks and refreshers. Speaking of summer snacks and refreshers, ay ang dami nyan sa S&R Membership.

If you want handy naman, this Melona Ice Cream Bar (8x70ml) at Php 189.95 only is perfect to cool you down during long road trips. It has two flavors, Melon and Strawberry.

For snacks naman, you will love this Hershey's Spreads at Php 189.95 only.

There's the plain Hershey's Spreads Chocolate.

And this Hershey's Spreads Chocolate with Almond.

Which ever you choose, I am sure your sandwich, biscuits or anything you dip into it, will be yummier! 

For refreshment naman, check this Arizona Half & Half Ice Tea Lemonade (1 Gal) at Php 169.95 and save 30 pesos from the Php 199.95 original price.

Our #BeloBaby Experience

My son is already 5 years old, but his skin is still as sensitive as baby's skin. His skin can easily get irritated, especially now that the weather is so hot. Actually, he has so many bungang araw (prickly heat) all over his body. I am bothered when I am seeing him uneasy and complaining how itchy those pesky rashes are. Because of this, I still let him use baby products.

When it comes to baby products, I always prefer all natural and with no harmful ingredients. So when I have learned that Belo just launched their new line of baby-care products, I was so thrilled and excited.

Let’s welcome Belo Baby!

Oh that cute bucket is full of all natural Belo Baby products.

Belo Baby product line
I like the packaging, very attractive that when my son saw it, he said "mommy sa akin po ba mga ito?"

 Belo Baby Hair and Body wash Php 219.75
Then he read what's on the packaging and told me "Ah, hair and body wash. Pwede din sa buhok ko mommy!" Smart boy he is right? So we tried and here's our #BeloBaby experience!

Enjoying his bath with Belo Baby Hair and Body Wash!

A Busy, Productive Week That Was

Hello everyone. How's your week? I have been busy these past days kaya wala na ako lakas mag-blog. My apologies dearies! 

Sunday palang busy na talaga. Daddy and I were working on samples order of crochet amigurumi owl.

While our little boy was watching and eating pop corn. Sarap lang ng buhay, haha!

For weeks, wala talaga kaming mga MTOs. We spent nights cuddling while we're waiting for the time to sleep. But this week is very different. Sabay-sabay ang orders! After the owl, I worked on felt cloth letters naman.

But I am not complaining because these are blessings! Yun lang, we have less cuddling time na with my little boy. So I need to divert his attention to this.

Look at his masterpiece!

My 5-year old is really good at it. I told you, he never get tired with coloring and drawing his two most favorite superheroes, Iron Man and Spiderman.

After that, I will tell him naman to read bible stories. He will, but after that wala na sya magawa so he will start to get uneasy and tried to play with us. Kaya lang we need to meet deadlines so kahit masakit, I will tell him to lay down. Kwentuhan na lang muna kami. However, I regret doing that because my little boy will innocently ask the most painful questions.

Matthew: Mommy, bakit po nagwowork na kayo sa araw, pati sa gabi nagwowork pa din?

Natigilan ako. I looked at hime and he's seriously waiting for an answer. Bakit nga ba? I told him, sayang opportunity so we can save more.

Then he asked another question.

Matthew: Bakit po mga mommies ng classmates ko kahit hindi magwork may pera sila?

Aw! Maloloka na ko sa batang ito. I answered him with another question, "Gusto mo ba magwork din sa malayo Daddy mo para sa bahay na lang ako?" He said no, then there's silence. Yun lang naisip ko na sagot sa tanong nya because while his classmates have their moms at home, their Dads are away naman. I want him to understand that his classmates' families are sacrificing too. That sometimes we need to be away or to have less time with our family to provide all their needs. 

I really want to stay at home. I am looking for a part time online job but that hasn't come yet. But God is so good that He made me see that the solution to this is on my hand already. My crafty hands. There are big opportunities coming in and praying that this opportunity will be the start of everything I dream of.

For now, I need to wait. I need more patience. Heto muna! Meet the owl family!

And let's welcome Mr. Crab too!

Happy weekend!

Monday Inspiration: A Reminder from God

Hello everyone! Monday blues it is!?! Let me share this reminder from God.

"God won't give us what we can't bear
God is bigger than any problem."

So don't give up because God will not give us anything we can't handle. Life is nothing without problems. But God is bigger that any problem we will have.

Have a great week everyone!

10 Spring Break Family Activities

For this part of the world, it's undeniably summer. It is very hot at day and even at night. The heat index soar high at 51 C as recorded by PAGASA. But I like summer more than rainy days. Because during summer we can do a lot of activities like hitting the beach and travelling. Also, I like summer because it's also the school break. That means, no study nights for me and my son. Yipee!

For the other part of the world, it's spring time. Spring break like summer, is a pleasant time of the year to have fun activities with the family.
Here are 10 Spring Break Family Activities:

1. Picnic at the park

Spring let us enjoy outdoor activities like having picnic at the park. It's a simple yet quality activity that the whole family can enjoy.

2. Kite flying

Spring is kite flying season. This is because the wind is more dominant. So after having picnic, you can fly kites at the park.

3. Biking

After the cold weather, have a little fitness through biking. Biking with the whole family is a sure fun activity.

4. Swimming at the beach

Swimming, of course, is what the kids are waiting for. Before the summer come, it's a fun time to enjoy the not so hot rays of the sun at the beach. Swimming came in third spot as the most popular activity at a spring break survey conducted.

5. Visit farm or zoo

Spring is a perfect time to enjoy nature and wild life. So a tour at the farm or zoo is another great spring break family activity.

6. Home gardening

Spring is the best time to dig the soil, grow plants and flowers at your back yard. I am sure the kids will enjoy this activity of getting dirty fingers and watching a seed grow to plants.

7. Tree planting

Tree planting makes a fun activity for a cause. You get to enjoy the time with family while helping to save our mother nature.

8. See the cherry blossoms

Cherry blooms in spring time like many flowering plants. It happens once a year, so seeing the cherry blossoms is an enjoyable activity for the family.

9. Barbecue party

If you don't want to get out of your place, you can have a barbecue party at home. You can invite your friends and other relatives to make it more fun.

10. Plan a spring break vacation

Spring break allows you to plan a vacation or travel out of town. Just pack lightly and make sure that the chosen vacation place is child friendly.

Have a fun spring time there and summer time here!

Monday Inspiration: On Acceptance

Hello Monday! 

Just came from a long and emotional weekend. It was physically draining actually. Sometimes, I am asking myself why such things need to happen. But I need to be strong because there are people who need me to be strong. 
accepting life quote

Soon, I will write about what and how I feel. In time, I will learn to accept the truth and live with it. Yes, I thought I fully accept the situation but I am still not ready. I am still in denial. I still have that big regret in my heart and so many what if's in my mind.

I am praying every night for more strength and to find that peace in my heart that's been empowered by fear, regrets and doubts. I believe this too shall pass. I needed to accept things as it and let go of what has been. For God has His purpose for everything thats happening. May He continue to guide us and may He grant that peace of mind.

Sorry for this little drama.

I wish everyone a Blessed week.
