Mr. Burrito's Birthday

Our little man  turned 6 years old  this week and he  was very happy to celebrate it with his classmates in school.  We ordered him a Chuggington cup-cake.  He was very happy that his Dad  took a day off and  went with me in the classroom to serve them the snack and treats.

We decided not to  host a party this time because of the flu that has been going around.  We bought him gifts and cooked a Fettuccine Alfredo for us to share.  Lolo Don and Lola Ruth gave him a gift too, thanks  Lolo and Lola!

It was a simple celebration yet the birthday boy was so happy.  Can you tell?
My little man is growing up so fast!

Burning Barbershop

My husband is very particular with things.  He only uses certain brands and very hesitant to try  any brands that he  is not familiar with or never heard of.  He love this  kind of cologne  and I love it's scent as well.  So every time he runs out, that's what I always get for him.  Anyhow, I came across this burning barbershop cologne online and  got interested about it's history.  Below is the  story of how they came out with this cologne (copied from the site).
A fire broke out in the Curling Bros. barbershop in Westlake, N.Y. in 1891. All the shaving tonics with their spearmint, lime, vanilla&lavender burned. A charred bottle was found half-full. It smelled like this.

Interstate Drive

When we came back here in the mainland from South Korea (2009), our car was shipped. I took a few weeks before it arrived to the landing destination, Maryland. Hubby and I flew from Pittsburgh to Maryland then we picked up the car and drove it back.
 
We did the same thing when  we first arrived here from Guam (2005).  The only difference is that we  rented a car and drove it to Virginia  which  was a bad idea especially that I was few weeks away from my due date.  We  also did not have  a GPS  so we've lost our way a couple of times.   

We learned our lesson so we flew the next time and then we brought  a GPS so we never got lost.
It was a good journey for both of us, kinda like a date without the kids lol.  While in Maryland, we  visited his Aunt whom he have never seen for years.  They were surprised because  my husband was still a kid when he last  seen his relatives.  Driving from State to State is fun especially when you are with your love one.

Style Made Easy when Traveling with No nonsense

This post brought to you by No nonsense. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am so blessed to have a husband who love to  explore places just like me.  When he was still in the active duty, we were given  many opportunities to visit places.  Even now that he is already retired, we make sure to  explore places that  we have never been.  Whenever we travel, I make sure to  bring me a set of dressy clothes for each of us.  It is better when you have it because you never know when the occasion will call for it.   I'd like to thank No nonsense for creating  products that are light and easy to pack when traveling.  I love the No nonsense tights and leggings   that I have, I have been using the tights ever since I  have it  and I can say how high end their products are.

If you want to learn more about them, like  No nonsense on Facebook or follow them on twitter @benononsense.  If you are one of those  fashionista enthusiast, you might have read already that Jill Martin is partnering with No nonsense.  She is a fashion expert who  will be Brand Ambassador to launch the new tights and leggings, you can watch the video below.  She will be assisting No nonsense  in education women on how to  wear fashionable outfit  without breaking  your budget.  Jill Martin is an Emmy award winning TV personality  that's why her say in fashion has a big impact to  women.  
No nonsense tights and leggings are affordable and you can easily find them at food and drug stores as well as mass retail store.  I highly recommend No nonsense.

Love Thy Neighbor

As I have previously mentioned, our Burritos got some  awesome gifts from their Lola and Lola Fancher's.  Lolo Don came to our home on Christmas day  and delivered their gifts to our Burritos.
Ms. Burrito could not wait, she started painting her Precious Monet  Nativity Scene right away then we helped her finish it.
Daddy and Lolo helped Mr. Burrito built his wooden cars.
I love this type of gifts as  it enhances  the creative thinking of the  children.  Thanks so much Lolo and Lola, your love for  us is always appreciated!

Kitchen Faucets

When we were shopping for the  bathroom sink accessories, my  husband grabbed   a kitchen faucet as well but  he thought about it for a while and returned it to the rack.  He wants to  replace the faucet that we have in the kitchen because it is  becoming a problem already.  To help his plan, I looked for the best kitchen faucets online and found some at Quality Bath website.  I like the Horus widespread while he likes the Whitehaus widespread.  We haven't purchase one yet but I will let him decide for this one as  he is the one that knows what will serve us best.

Nikon Nikkor AF-S zoom lens

The photos below were taken by a DSLR using my new   Nikon Nikkor AF-S zoom lens that hubby got me for Christmas, thanks Hon!  The lens cost $249.00
The features of this lines is below (copied from the store website.
  • Designed exclusively for use with Nikon's DX series digital SLR cameras, the Nikon Nikkor AF-S zoom lens is ideal for sports, action, wildlife, travel, and portrait photography. 
  • Nikon's Vibration Reduction system enables you to take substantially sharper handheld pictures at slower shutter speeds — as many as 3 stops slower. 
  • An Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass element provides high-resolution images while minimizing chromatic aberration, astigmatism and other forms of distortion. 
  • Plus, the Nikon VR Image Stabilization DSLR Lens features Silent Wave Motor technology (SWM), which combines fast and precise auto-focusing with super-quiet operation. 
  • The Internal Focusing (IF) construction allows the Nikon zoom lens to focus without changing its external size.

Rocky Mountain Trail

Winter has just begun I am already getting wore out of being trapped inside our home, it feels like it's been so long.  I would like to do my running outside but there's piles of snow everywhere so it wouldn't be safe as  some part has  ice in it, I might bust my behind and break a bone or something.  I guess, I just have to embrace the fact that I don't have a choice but to use our treadmill inside our home hehehe.  

Sweet November

When my PC crashed, I got behind with my posting so this is a long overdue  post about  pumpkin carving.  Anyhow, someone donated  a truck load of pumpkin to the school so they gave each students to take home.  It gave my Burritos something to do  on that particular weekend.  Anyhow, these are  part of  our Sweet November activities so here you go.

Riding a Horse

We visited my  father-in-law last night and  he told us that he wanted to call his  youngest sister  but he couldn't get through.  My husband  dialed the number and  he  got through so my FIL talked to his sister and he was happy.  We then talked about the last we went and visited his sister a couple of years ago and he loved to do that again this year.  We had a very unforgettable experience down there as we got lost along the way but with that we found a  paradise, a farm owned by a very nice family who let my  children rode their horses.  It would would be nice if we could go there again and dropped by at that said farm, maybe the owners will let the kids ride again with saddle pads and all.  I love  going to  the country areas as it reminds me of home.  Hubby and I would love to own a property  where there are plenty of land to raise a cow and  horse maybe, that would be fun.
