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 …

My 2014 Plan

My first post of the year! I was supposed to put this up on the 1st (then supposedly on the 2nd), but we spent the whole day just lounging around enjoying Osc’s last day off. Then we were off to a very close friend’s annual family reunion (nakiki-sali kami! :D) and got home around midnight already. 2013 brought in about so much life lessons and challenges. I kid you not, it would probably be the hardest year of my life as a married woman and a Mom. And wonderful blessings arrived in terms of sponsors on this blog  and in …

Mommy and Baby Care Packs for Typhoon Yolanda Survivors

** EDITING THE LATTER PART OF THIS POST TO CLARIFY SOME THINGS ** It’s hard to take in how much damage and loss of life Typhoon Yolanda has brought to our countrymen in the Visayas region. I am brought to tears whenever I see photos on the news or watch a video being shared on my Facebook feed. Like many of you must feel, I just want to go there and help out personally. I want to pray for them, and embrace them. Assure them that God is still good and they will be taken care of. I’m sure many …

Mr. Jacob’s Mom: New Look, You Like?

After 3 days of working on this little baby, backing up files and pictures, making sure I don’t lose anything, making sure every thing fits perfectly and all plugins are working right, we are finally up and running! Welcome to the new look of Mr. Jacob’s Mom! This was actually supposed to be done end of September, but I had so many things going on last month that it was only this week that Oscar and I got around to doing it. But I’m happy it’s done and the design is just how I wanted it. Well, if you can …

Relaunch Sneak Peek!

Well, obviously I haven’t blogged in days! We’ve been preparing to relaunch Mr. Jacob’s Mom and I’ve been busy arguing with myself whether or not I should keep the “Mr. Jacob’s Mom” brand or be “Mommy Roxi”. The only reason I wanted to change my blog’s name/brand is because I was thinking of my future kids and how they would feel if years from now, I am still known as Mr. Jacob’s Mom. Well, my Mother-in-Law put in a great perspective on things and helped me decide finally: Mr. Jacob’s Mom is more “cute” really, than Mommy Roxi (yeah, that …
