Wednesdate with Jacob

Last Wednesday, I took Jacob with me while I ran errands. Ever since school finished, he’s been staying at home lang and he’d only go out when we go to Church and to visit my in-laws. Actually we haven’t been going out too much because Joaquin’s eczema flared up again. And I always go out for errands by myself naman talaga. But lately, I’ve noticed that Jacob has been asking me where I am going and he keeps on telling me once I’m home that he missed me again. So I thought of bringing him out with me so that …

Some Tips for Room Makeover

I do a minimum of one makeover throughout our house once a year to give our space a new feel. I don’t like clutter or anything that gathers dust. So I’m pretty much a minimalist really. This bugs my Mom who loves her decors at home. This article will be a great read if you’re planning on giving your place a fresh look even if you’re in a budget. Are you thinking of giving your living room a makeover? If the current set up isn’t working for you or it’s just time for a change, go for it. This room …

This Is How I Forget

I don’t even want to say it. You know I haven’t been blogging. I have a ‘To Do’s’ list right on my bedside table that’s been reminding me every day that I haven’t been crossing any of them off daily as planned. Other Moms would probably say that I should take it easy on myself. That I’m now a Mom of two and that’s quite a handful. Or that I’m baking for my small start up business or blogging (so they thought!) and I have that to think about too. Well you see, that list has been sitting there since …

Mommy Roxi Turns 3 Today!

Mommy Roxi (well, Mr. Jacob’s Mom still!) turns 3 years old today! I can’t believe i have maintained, though not regularly at times, a blog for that long. Back in 2002 when I started blogging for fun, I would change blogs so often, you’d think it was changing underwear. And I was blogging about silly, crazy teenager in love problems then! Buti na lang nabura na! Anyhoo, I want to thank each and every one of you for your continuous support! Readers, fellow mommy bloggers, friends, and family. This blog has come a long way, and if I didn’t stop …

Beer Batter Fish Fillet Recipe

Home-Made Beer Batter Fish Fillet Recipe

Sorry for the lack of post for the past two weeks. Right after Jacob’s birthday (which I’ve still yet to blog about before I completely forget about it!), I caught the cough and colds my two boys had. Apparently, when you’re pregnant and you catch something, it’s usually must worse than what others had because of our weakened immune system. Matigas ulo ko when Jacob had his cough and colds and I was sharing food with him. Thinking that I wouldn’t get sick since both of them already got sick twice/thrice in the past 3 months and I didn’t get anything. …

Room Makeover Reveal!

Finally, our room reveal! I wish I have a before photo to show you guys but I forgot to take one. We have settled back to our real bedroom and have been enjoying our soft plush bed for the past 4 days. The bed Mom got for me as a birthday present from the SM sale earlier this month arrived on time last Sunday. The room was already painted and cleaned before the frame was due to be delivered. The paint is from Boysen’s custom paint, Clear Jade Green. It looks more turquoise in photos. Maybe it would have been …

Summer Cleaning

Since my big energy rush that started last week, I’ve been able to clean out our storage closet and partially organize Jacob’s toys into these nice little bins I got from Puregold and Wilcon Home. These two above are the only two bins Jacob is allowed to have outside the closet which contains his favorite toys: his matchboxes and his fake legos which has been torn into pieces that I can’t even recognize anymore. I’m temporarily transferring everything from our master’s bedroom to the middle room, which will be the kid’s room, so we can clean that room from top …
