Need Everyone's Help...

This year is getting worst as the months go by and would really like everyone to help me out.

This year, I'm helping save lives from Cancer by taking part in the American Cancer Society Relay for Life and I'm hoping you will support me. Each of us has our own reasons for caring about the fight against Cancer, it is getting more and more personal in my own life. I've lost an Aunt from Breast Cancer, my Grandmother survived Breast Cancer but it came back a few years ago and is still fighting. My hubby has lost his Mother this past March to Lung & Bone Cancer and we just received word that his Grandmother has Breast Cancer. This is a horrible disease hurting the ones we love and we need to stand up and kick Cancer in the ass!

My Team and I have a set goal to raise at least $1000 and I have my own personal goal set at $250, I'm currently at $35. If you could in any amount to help donate, it would be greatly appreciated!! Please use this link or under {the Mommy} click on iHope to go straight to my personal page, to make a secure, tax-deductible online donation to the American Cancer Society. You can make a one-time gift, or increase your impact by donation monthly! You can also donation in recognition of a loved one with a Luminaria Donation.

Thank you and I will keep you updated on my progress!! 

I'm still alive

Hello Everyone!

I know its been a while but I'm still alive. I've been very busy with life, here is a summary...

my kids... sure keep me so busy to begin with
trying to get my photography business more organized & running
never ending cleaning
I'm now certified in CPR & First Aid including infant CPR.
I've joined a Team for Relay for Life (will have more information about ways to help)

Please bear with me while I get flowers in a row, more organized and updated. I have ideas for articles with some days being the same, like what I've started with the crock-pot recipes (updating soon!)

Great weather, busy day of a Mommy

Just can't believe this weather is finally here (just don't like Mother Nature know!) for a few days anyways. I'm sure it will be just a tease like the other day or so we had before. I did get a little sun unlike a few friends, they burned but I became a golden brown and soon will be darker (gotta love being Italian!). A little more to my little project of Sexy Back!!

I'm trying to get caught back up with my blogs, my posting, emails and so much more. Hopefully I get most of them done before I get too tired (my alarm clock went off a little earlier then normal, 6am! but I love her too much)

I just figured out the labels on my posts now just to remember to complete them before I publish my posts... (need a really big sticky note) as I have a ton every where on my desk to help remind me of things (little distractions about 19 mos. & 5 yrs. old).

Some days I really dislike cleaning, it never fails. I get one room all clean where you can eat off the floor without getting anything on it and someone comes over and destroys it! I'm thinking of going on strike or even better, have only a day or two where they could come over and the rest of the week is normal for us. Didn't realize how company coming over every day can really mess up our routine so badly. This may be the biggest reason why it is so hard for me to find my me time.

The meeting with my son's preschool teacher and IEP team went very well. He is already for Kindergarten in the fall and will have Speech Therapy during the summer. I don't think I've mentioned it before but my son has a Speech Problem and thankfully for those wonderful therapists and teachers, I can't seem to get him to be silent for more than two seconds now! Just can't believe he is growing so fast, I brought him a big boy bike! Love him so much, just wish I could find that magic potion to keep him little longer, just a little longer both him and his sister.

Speaking of his sister, I was able to talk her out of getting another baby doll and she got a really big pink ball. Don't think I could do that again! She was very upset that I wasn't getting her a 20 inch bike like her brother that had the Disney Princesses and all! Heaven forbid I didn't get it.

Well it's getting late here and I have a good feeling that my alarm clock will go off just as early as this morning. Good Night!!

My Little mark. Shop

I keep trying to get some extra money to help with the bills and I did sign up with mark. but forget that I'm an Independent mark. Rep. (get so busy being a Mommy!)

So here is the scoop!

mark. is a great new line of make up and accessories from Avon. It's made just for girls/women who want to make their "mark" on the world.

If you would like more information about having your own online party, ordering or even becoming a mark. rep. (only $20 to start!) please feel free to contact me or visit my online store at

I didn't want to bore you with a big ad about my mark. but thought I would share this great opportunity with you all. I do wear this make-up and boy it sure does make me feel better looking a little like Amy instead of Mommy. :)

Yummy Crockpot Dinner

I'm always having a hard time with deciding on what to make for dinner... well I came across I found many recipes for busy Mommys that could always use the extra help. So for my first recipe, I chosen... (drum roll please) Crockpot Beef Tips and let me tell you, there weren't any leftovers! This is one great, easy to make and forget it dinner.

This was one yummy dinner and my children, well just my son, love it! My daughter has entered the picky eater stage so her option doesn't really count until further notice. My hubby was looking for more, I will have to make this again, maybe even a bigger batch so I could have some for the next day for lunch.

Hope you enjoy as much as we did! Happy Eating!

Looking for a great way to make Beef Tips? Just throw them in the crockpot! Super easy recipe, just serve with rice, noodles, or potatoes.

2 lbs. beef tips
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of celery soup
½ c. water
1 pkg. dry onion soup mix

Step 1- Mix all ingredients. Cook in crock pot on low for 8 to 12 hours. (May also be cooked in casserole dish for 3 hours at 300 degrees)
Yield: 8 Servings

Whole family under the weather

Good evening my followers...
Sorry I haven't wrote a post in a few days, my children were sick on Wednesday. They were throwing up every where, my poor little ones. Luckily the next day was better, they ate some and kept it down. While nursing them back to health, my own health went down. Woke up this morning with a horrible headache, upset stomach and my whole body hurting.
On the better side, my Sexy is coming back slowly, thanks to Dance Central! I'm slowly moving like I used to with trying to complete the dance moves properly and what fun we are having in the process.
Hoping tomorrow brings happier moments without the sickness in the family... keep fingers crossed! Until tomorrow, good night!

Hello to all my new followers

Just wanted to say Hello to all of my new followers following my blog and twitter account! I feel special that there are wonderful readers out there, reading what I have to say. I hope I'm able to keep you all interested in keeping up with me in my journey of Mommyhood.

With working on getting my Sexy back, I have weighed myself yesterday and have found that I have lost 10 pounds since the last time I weighed myself which was about a month or so ago. I wasn't trying to loose weigh, I just have been very busy with Mommyhood.

My daily routine goes as followed...
feed the kids
clean the apartment (well try to!)
run after the kids (or at least Jasmine while Zac is at school)
feed the kids again
hopefully a nap for Jazzy
maybe I will get a bite to eat now & a little computer time
Jazzy up and ready to run again
try to figure out dinner (now have it planned, just have to figure out which plan I want to try to eat)
slowly get the kids ready for bed
then maybe a little me time before hubby gets home (doesn't work as planned)
And then maybe in bed by 11pm.

So as you can see how busy I get, that is just a summary, not the details! There is a lot more that I didn't mentioned.

Working on some photographs of my sister's prom with her boyfriend... where has the time gone?? I can't believe she is going to be 18 this October!!! It was yesterday that I was changing her diaper. Same with my own son, still can't get over him starting Kindergarten this fall. Wonder if I'm gonna cry like I did when he started Head Start. We will see

I think I'm getting the hang of blogging and now learning the twitter thing... I found I like twitter as I can post little things of my day right from my phone a lot faster than trying to write a blog on my phone. :) Well  I'm going to try to get some things done before bed...

Good Night!

A Little goes a Long Way

I've been looking for a way where I can help people that have some kind of Cancer. I've joined the Relay for Life (reading up on everything before I start) and a special one for kids, Cookies for Kids Cancer.

I'm asking for my followers to be a Good Cookie and support my efforts to raise money for pediatric cancer research. 

Founded by two parents inspired by their young son’s ongoing battle with pediatric cancer, Cookies for Kids’ Cancer is a 501 (c)(3) that raises awareness and funds for pediatric cancer research through local bake sales and other events. Since the organization was founded, more than 2,000 bake sales and other events have been held across the North America and Europe. Pediatric cancer is the number one disease killer of kids in the US due, in large part, to lack of funding. My goal is to raise $250 (for the month of May, if not more!) and I’m hoping you will help me reach that goal. One way you can participate is by making an online donation. Click on the link to visit my personal donation page where you can make a secure credit card donation.  No amount is too small and every dollar makes a difference. To learn more about pediatric cancer and Cookies for Kids' Cancer, visit the website:

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. We’re in this fight because every child battling cancer deserves a fighting chance. I hope to see you at our bake sale where you can have a good cookie and be a Good Cookie.

Sweet Smiles

Things are coming together...slowly!

Finally things are falling into place over in my little world!

My blog is becoming...
offers product reviews
a guest blogger
a blog hop with voiceBoks
a place to share giveaways
more organized!

The other pages that don't have any content will very soon!! Please be patient with me while I get things together for those pages. I finally have an email just for my blogging friends/communities! And soon ( I hope!) I should have a great blog design!

My gossipers are slowing down on what I did and didn't do. LOL! It seems like my 'life' is so much better than a Days! Oh well!! Maybe I can become stress-free for a change, enjoy my children as they won't stay little very long, concentrate on my studies, put forth my businesses, mostly my photography but am trying to get my mark. out there to at least be able to pay for my gas since these prices are outrage!

But for now, I'm going to get off of here and hopefully get some sleep! The storms last night/morning kept us up.

What a week, weekend, holiday and every other day

I'm not even sure when to begin! I know its been about a week since my last blog but that just shows how busy I've been. Hopefully you will be able to keep up...

On Wednesday: it was my normal Wednesday, getting Zac off to school, my sister watched my daughter while I went to work. It didn't seem like I got very much done at work but thinking about it, I couldn't take many photographs as the rain wouldn't stop or even have a very long break in between.

On Thursday: Again a normal everyday as before, busy being a Mommy! Not a whole lot to talk about this day other than yet again stupid people are going around stating my hubby isn't his... come on, any one that has seen my daughter in person along with my hubby can clearly see that he is. They've done this once before, last year, guess they really are bored. The horrible part I found out about this rumor from my friend that was at work, from her friend that is dating another friend that lives here at the apartments that just happened to know those stupid people. Think they thought she was fresh meat and had to go talk about my business to her but luckily she knew better. Gotta love drama! Oh well!

On Friday, well let's say that was a fun day! A few different things came up, some things I got done and others that were put on hold and a few other things. Overall fun!!

On Saturday: well another busy day... my girlfriend, her husband and myself took our kids to see the Easter Bunny. That sure was fun! The older ones were ready to see him, the baby didn't care but Jazzy was a different story. She wanted to see him, but when we got a few feet away, she smacked me with both her hands at the same time while kicking me and telling me "no!". What fun that was! We did get a photo with all the kids in it, as soon as I find my printer's power cable I will scan and upload. It's too cute!

On Sunday: Of course it was Easter, almost forgot to set up the baskets and all the night before... luckily I remembered before I fell asleep. I hide the baskets for the kids to find, Jazzy was in heaven with what she discovered in hers and so was Zac. We ended up celebrating Easter with Jess and the whole family. They sure know how to make it all about the kids, which was so very nice! Hope everyone had a great Easter!!

And for today: nothing but cleaning, school work, trying to write a term essay that is due tonight. Gonna have fun tomorrow night, I'm having a Pure Romance party with my favorite consultant!!

Things are almost done...

I have had so many projects going at once, not able to get one done until I get the other done and so forth.

I sat with my daughter, we laid out her babies... tried to count them and I believe I counted up to 30! I think she doesn't need anymore! LOL!

Finally got my fan page on FB for my photography all done and organized... two photos are being a pain in the butt, hopefully I will be able to upload them later.

I was on a cleaning kick yesterday!! I didn't want to be bothered, once started don't stop. Yes, I was caffeinated big time and very glad I was. My apartment needed it badly, gonna have another day like that to finish the rest of the rooms. Thursday sounds good! :)

I was going through my son's book-bag and there was a letter for me to confirm my appointment with his pre-school teacher about the transition into Kindergarten. I can't believe my little boy is going to be 6!! The time sure flew by fast.
                                           From this sweet little boy

To a handsome little man

Been reading blogs from other Moms and boy! I'm glad I'm not the only one that has her days! :) I'm so unorganized on my blog, please be patient with me while my blog goes "under the knife, or in this case, under photoshop!". I hope to create my own layout, buttons and much more! Any ideas of a design, please share with me. Love ideas!!

I have many ideas for my blog, ideas like... a blog train one day, another day a deal & steals, maybe one that will feature a WAHM business, maybe on Fridays something to do with photos (I love photography!!). Any ideas are welcome & appreciated! If there is something you would like to see on my blog, just let me know. I'm open to just about anything and everything.

Where did the weekend go?

Boy the weekend flew by fast! Didn't get the chance to blog at all, so I have a feeling that will not be possible to do until Monday. Hopefully I remember everything that happened! :)

Saturday.. busy busy! Normal day with my kids, hubby being hubby and having my sister over like always with her spending time with her boyfriend... oh to be 17 again, the fresh love in the air! Oh well... today is better than back when I was 17, I know more, been in love with the same man for 10 years and going strong, have two wonderful children and much more!

Sunday, was trying to relax, get my college work done, organize my photography business stuff and so forth. Well that didn't go as planned... but did get some of it done. Wanted to get my college work done, didn't happen... wanted to do basic cleaning, didn't happen.

Monday... well back to the normal schedule, kinda. Didn't have internet all morning and early afternoon which made for extreme house cleaning today! I got so much done thanks to that and my sister being off of school all week. Thanks Hannah!! Hopefully we get the list all done before I have to take her home tomorrow afternoon/evening. Keep fingers crossed! Luckily I got college work done and hope to have next weeks all done tomorrow before my busy week starts up again.

I'm trying to get my photography business rolling... gotta save up to get my business registered, prices just right, everything transferred over to the new name (personal reasons/problems). Hope to be able to get some business in to pay for what I need to get it going in the right direction.

Well I better get in bed so I'm ready for another day as Mommy...

Busy Bee

Boy I have been busy!

Thursday, I babysat & had a friend and her baby over on top of my two.

Friday, my friend came back over, we did a little shopping & lunch. I picked up my sister for the weekend; my best friend came over with her family and so forth. My little apartment was getting crowded! On top of this, had some pain in my butt problems to take care of. Hopefully, everything will be taken care of in that department soon!! (long story!) I had plans for Friday but they really didn't get done, hoping today I will get some done before anyone puts a hold on them.

I'm hoping to be able to take a better portrait of myself, get my photography business underway, get the apartment cleaned, yet again! Hope to get most if not all my college assignments & quizzes done before my daughter wakes up from her nap. So much to do, in such little time. I'm off for now until later tonight (hopefully!) I'll share more photos...

Busy day yesterday & the beginning today off just as busy....

My day was so busy yesterday that I didn't get the chance to blog, so here is how my day went. I was able to do a few of my favorite things, photography cars for our local dealership and upload them to their website. I love photograph, love cars and love playing on the computer!! I was able to enjoy the weather when it did get warmer and dryer, the sun did peek out finally.

I got a little break from my mommy life, thankfully my own mommy was able to take care of my children for the day. Jasmine sure kept her on her toes, running to one thing, my mom would get up and Jazzy would run the other way to another thing she wasn't suppose to have. My mom sure got her exercise for the day and some of her sexy back!

The best feeling ever is coming home and your children running to the door, happy to see you! They practically jump into my arms... what a great feeling. Today its bad to normal... no happy to see me kind of feeling. I get to experience once again how it is to take care of a 6 mos. old. I was asked to watch my friends little one while her and her husband slept since they work 3rd shift... of course I have a rule... "I don't watch children under the age of my daughter." well... me, of course I made only one exception... I would watch her son when no one else could. I said yes and woke up this morning to her knocking... my kids weren't even up yet so there is no need for me to be up... well I'm up, nice and early, watching her baby. Oh well... this is just a reminder why I'm not having any more kids.


                                           Wish I could sleep so soundly!
What a little mother my daughter is turning into...

When she first started playing with her babies (26 or more babies later), she wasn't so nice. She would beat them, throw them. Now she feeds them, puts them to bed and hugs them. Heaven forbid she doesn't get to play with the real baby that is sleeping so nicely in the pack n play.

Anyways... I'm off of here for a little while. I'll be back sometime today to blog about how the day went, any cute stories or finds I come across today. While the baby is napping now, gonna go do my Zumba... may not get a chance later... gotta get my sexy back!!

What a Day...

After picking Zachary up from school, my lovely headache started. This time is was really bad and didn't go away until a little bit ago, I had it for about five hours straight. Ended up putting Jazzy down early for bed since she hasn't been sleeping very well with this cough of hers... poor girl.

Zachary sure is growing up fast! He has his moments where the attitude could be less but what do you expect from a five year old. The stories that come out of his mouth are so cute... will have to blog about a few in the future. Little Jasmine is starting to talk up a storm as well, not too sure if I'm ready for all of that. What a diva she is! Very much a girl, loves to shop, take care (well kinda, if you consider throwing taken care of) her many babies (not many, only about 26 the last time I counted).

It seems like I'm a broken recorded some times that I just want to throw myself out the window. How come the only way to get the kids attention is to yell instead of just talking? Really... do we have to get mommy mad before we will listen to her or even acknowledge that she is watching us? One day they will realize how it's like. :)

I've came across another Mom Blogger, she blogged about becoming a SEXY MOM. A few ideas I've consider to help myself become SEXY MOM along with an article I read in Parenting. I have started this afternoon with my Zumba and will continue tomorrow with a few exercises from the article. I will be posting a before photo as to keep track any differences if any, not really looking to loose weigh but to tone everything back (hopefully) since having my babies. 

Here is a photo of my little stars of the show...

Well I'm off for the night, to get a few things done before I head to bed. Long day planned for tomorrow and hopefully get to cross off a few things off the list. Good Night!!

A Two of a New Beginning...

Another new day in my world and it starts early like any other day. Get Zachary up and off to school, while I wait for Jasmine to wake up. Checked my social accounts, emails, websites, blogs and so forth. The hubby off to start his day doing guy stuff... who knows what they really do!

Jasmine woke up again with the horrible cough, made her an appointment with the doctor... the doc said that it wasn't really anything to worry about. Even though the cough keeps her up most of the night, not to worry about it... think she should keep Jazzy over night and see if she thinks it's nothing. Then I'm waiting on the pharmacy for Jazzy's prescriptions, they said the scripts aren't in yet. So went to get a few things needed at home, come back 30 minutes later... "no sorry, there isn't anything here for her." Really?? I just left the doctors office, they said they would call it in right away. Had to go talk to the pharmacist and find out what is going on... still nothing there. Luckily there were refills for one of the scripts she needed. An hour and 20 minutes later, only have one prescription, a crabby little girl and a headache. Just ended up leaving without the other one.

Checking the gas prices and yet again, they are back up! $3.89 a gallon... how do they expect me to pay for it, gonna need a job just to pay for gas and nothing else.

Well... I'm off to get my son from pre-school... be back soon!!

Just another Busy Day as a Mommy

Today started like any other day, wake up around 7:30am to get Zac up and ready for the bus.

Jazzy took her time this morning getting up. Change her diaper and dressed her. Poor girl woke up coughing like crazy, wish this weather would make up it's mind. She is whiny, nose running, nothing seems to go her way today. She got her foot stuck in between the crib rail and the mattress, thought maybe she really hurt her ankle though it looks like it will be ok, swollen a little but she is walking just fine.
My girlfriend, Jess stopped over for the day with her two children. Hung out at the apartment, watch some TV, take care of the kids, my daughter's Help Me Grow teacher stopped over, made some baskets for Easter and fed the kids then put three of them down for naps including Jess.

Me trying to get my college work completed and turned in by tonight. Ended up getting an assignment and one discussion topic down in one class and hope to get the other two discussion topics down in the other class by midnight tonight if possible.

Did a little running around our town, which isn't very big to begin with. Stopped at Circle K to grab milk, as milk seems to be going out of style here at the apartment. Stopped over at the car dealership to make a payment on Jess's truck, see my lovely hubby. Talk some business with a friend there, both about my photography and my mark. stuff. 

My sister calls me to come pick her up from school, since she stayed after to set up tables for bingo. Of course I can't say no to her! Told her she had to wait until I got Zac from pre-school... So we ended up in Thompson, driving in the rain and the temperatures were dropping. I can't wait for the weather to stay nice, at least 60 degrees! 

It doesn't seem like I ever stop saying... "stop that!", "sit down!", "leave your sister along!", and so forth. I know he knows how to be play nice, listen... he does it at school but why can't he bring it home with him?? I've asked his teacher's and he is great there! Very helpful, polite to his friend's and all! Think I need 5 minutes to myself somehow, a break for an hour would be nice but not until both kids are sleeping, even then it's not really a break... it more like "on call" for the night. 

My sister's boyfriend stopped over to pick up a permission slip for prom! Can't believe she is going to prom already... really can't believe she will be 18 in October! It's amazing how time flys!!  Wish there was some way to slow the kids from growing so fast right in front of us.

Figuring out what I'm going to make for dinner... thinking of smoke sausage, potatoes and corn. :)

Well I better get off of here and get back to Mommy Life. I will share a photo of my little family tomorrow. Good Night!!

Finally figured it out, wasn't what I was thinking... but it was good!
