DIY Hot Wheels Car Parking With Lift

Sunday

Before I throw cardboards, I asked myself first.. “Do I need this for something?” and I always said “Yes!” haha My husband knows how I’m a cardboard hoarder. But.. I do inspect the cardboard first before I keep them. I make sure it’s a good quality cardboard that will be good for making diy toy for my kids and even for a storage bins just like the ones I made for my children’s playroom. I think it’s fun to make something out of the cardboard before I tossed it in the trash 🙂 Last week, my sister shown me a […]

Monday

Hello friends, it’s been awhile since I posted here. Things are busy but I love it 🙂 I thought to update my blog to share my daily routine and schedule with my 3 kids (ages 2-5) since we are all dealing with this virus. Schools are closed and so I’d like to share with my fellow moms out there what our day looks like and also to share some activity ideas for kids. Fyi, I have a kindergarten that I’m homeschooling only for this second semester and I also have a pre-schooler son who also do homeschooling and I have […]

Gifts For Him

Friday

It’s another year of gift giving this Christmas! Have you started shopping for presents yet? Or maybe a list of gift ideas for your loved ones such as the men in your life? Men can be hard to shop for and if you’re feeling the same, you are not alone 🙂 I asked my husband, Brent, to share his wish list, for lack of a better term. He really likes quality above everything else and rarely buys impulsively.  If you know someone like him who shares the same principle, check out the list for quality gifts for the men in […]

How’s being a stay-at-home mom?

Thursday

I’d like to share with you today some images I took of my good friend, Brittany and her beautiful family + horses… We’ve known them for several years now and I’m excited to welcome her to the “Mother of three boys!” club ;). Here are some things about her that you might find interesting.    Tell me about yourself? I’m 30 years old and married to my best friend for 8 years now. We have 2 boys, another one on the way, and have fostered 3 boys over the last couple of years that have since been reunited with family. […]

My go-to cordless shaver! No more cuts, razor burns, or irritation!

Monday

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Philips. Shaving is hard. It’s hard to find time to do it as a busy mom of three boys. And getting razor burns, cuts, and irritation from shaving is not fun. Luckily, I found the Philips SatinShave earlier this year and have been using it as my go-to cordless shaver. It can be used on wet or dry skin, meaning no need to use shaving cream while shaving; yet it still leaves smooth skin with no irritation. This past summer, I decided to search for an easy and effective electronic shaver that would work […]

Family Halloween Costume: The Hobbit

Friday

This year my husband was the one in charge to pick what theme we’ll do for Halloween since I chose the costume from last year . He was always keen to do The Hobbit since he wants to be Gandalf (Hello Lord of the Rings fans!). It was such a fun, messy, and challenging experience to prepare our costumes. I tried my best not to spend for the materials as much as possible. I mainly had to buy the wig and ears since I don’t know how to make them from scratch. Here are some behind-the-scene images I took from […]
