Here is my 2017’s Instagram Best Nine. I intentionally forgot to post my Best Nine of 2017 on Instagram. I get to be forgetful but aside from that, is that I am not quite impressed with the results. Ha!Ha! Kidding aside, I am indeed thankful for all the likes I received on these nine images I shared throughout they year 2017. Cheers to more beautiful captures this new year!
In all honesty, I was not really that active the whole of 2017 in IG. There were weeks that I did not even glance on posts of the people I follow. But I am really hoping to get back on track on IG sharing and also in blogging. I missed a lot in here! I am in need of reviewing and relearning… a LOT!
Giving emphasis on the “Save” button, Pinterest has decided to remove its “Like” button. For some accounts, this has already been implemented and will soon roll out to the rest of the Pinterest users.
“The No. 1 challenge is getting people to understand that Pinterest isn’t a social network,” CEO Ben Silbermann told Bloomberg.
So, what happens to those beautiful pins you have liked?
Pinterest will save the pins users liked on a separate, secret board called “Your Pinterest Likes”.
At least, those pins you liked and have not decided to save yet are still saved for you to easily go back and refer to when needed. Should you desire to save the ones you have liked, it can easily be moved to your existing public boards.
I was tagged by a dear friend, Joy of JoyRide and so I decided to create a 2-in-1 post at first. To not lose the momentum, I guess.
Sept. 14, I am grateful for..
– the person who found Nhald’s wallet. Our faith in humanity is still there because of him/them.
– the ability to recognize something good out of an obvious mistake. We got the chance to go out together as partners, it was quite an adventure.
– the simple fact that my kids’ have the ability to take care of each other while Mom & Dad is out.
Sept. 15. I am grateful for…
– an additional rest day for the kids and that Malacañang initiated the suspension of classes as early as last night because of thypoon Luis.
– my awesome clients for the trust they have given me.
– Keanna’s achievement for the 1st grading period.
I have this posted in my Facebook account but since we are promoting something really good here, it is best to share it in public too. So, if you were tagged by a friend, be it on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or through blogs and other social media websites, go ahead and join in. You will be surprised as to how much there is to really be thankful for instead of wasting our time with all the what-if’s and I should have’s.
One morning, I decided to serve both K & Roey Banana oatmeal. K ended up eating both servings and Roey ate Bananas instead. K got used to eating anything you serve her, believe it or not. My Mama has really helped a lot in her eating habits. She may be skinny but I am thankful that she is not sickly as well. Both my kids, actually. Thanks to HIM! Because, health is definitely a priority for me, and then education.
Roey, on the other hand, is the picky eater, she is not skinny though. She has just learned ( I don’t know where!) to say no to any food she thinks to be yucky! Unfortunately, the oatmeal I served them was one. So, the Mom in me was given a challenge. How can I make this kid eat oatmeal?
Since I have been seeing oatmeal biscuit recipes online, why not try one? So, I ended up with these Banana-Raisin Oatmeal cookie cups the next morning and was very satisfied with the result.
She ate 2 cookie cups for breakfast and kept coming back to the fridge until every cookie is gone. K enjoyed the cookie cups too. Too bad I was out of flour and only ended up with 18 pieces that day. I also made a Choco Banana Oatmeal cupcake after few days for a variety. And will sure explore more healthy baking and cooking innovations for my loves.
How about you?
Hope you can share your Mommy-moves and creative tactics in serving your kids healthy breakfast or snacks, I would sure appreciate that!
Thanks in advance and happy baking or cooking and then eating! Ha! Ha!
My Pinterest account has been in existence for quite some time now. It has caught my attention with the graphics/photos in it. I still can recall that everything has started as a hobby and now, Pinterest for me has become Pinterest-ing! It is not just PInterest though, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram too! In short, these social media websites are part of the reasons why we have a lot to be thankful for.
I remember to have created boards for photography, fashion (kids and ladies), sewing & DIY ideas, kitchen & baking supplies and tools, inspiring quotes and what I named: Dream House Project.
If you already have a Pinterest account, you can follow me – SEPTEMBERCHARM so we can get to exchange ideas thru pins. If you would like to be inspired in building your own dream house, follow KCK and you will sure be amaze on a number of ideas you can get, from cabinets, bathrooms, kitchens to dinnerware.
My dream house project has almost everything in it, I suppose. I have photos of bedrooms, kitchens, backyards, libraries, laundry rooms and a lot more. I have recently shared a photo in Facebook (I got from PInterest) which caught my attention, a backyard with flower and vegetable garden. I have even mentioned that having something like that is one of my many dreams. I definitely would like to have even a small one if we would be blessed to own a home we can call our own. And I will make it a point to learn how to nurture everything Green that will grow in that dream backyard garden in which later on can be used in cooking! I love to cook too!
Speaking of which, in case you already have a garden (indoor or outdoor), visit Access Hydro for your garden tools and supplies needs.
Everyone’s been talking about Frozen. A lot has loved Elsa, Anna and of course, Olaf!
Every little girl may have already sang their own cover of “Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?” and “Let It Go”. My girls did. Unfortunately, the audio of my netbook is not working. The video recorder of my phone did not work either. So, we have an audio less video. It is proper not to show it at all, ha ha!
I can no longer recall as to how many times we and they watched Frozen. I have enjoyed the movie too. I loved how Disney showed different characteristics of modern women, princesses in the movie, of course. When you become a Mom, you will be more (a lot more) observant. Observant of almost everything about your girls – their likes and dislikes, their attitude, their moves and so as choice of friends. Disney has successfully showed the difference between Elsa and Anna – described as introvert and extrovert during our time. now, they can be described as elegant and the latter, fearless.
On the other hand, did you notice how fab and fashionable Elsa was? I so love her gown when she changed while singing the famous “Let It Go”. My elder daughter K has been watching YouTube videos of different artists drawing and painting Elsa. Said she also liked Elsa’s gown and hairstyle. But guess what? I found her drawing Olaf instead.
And then, was asked by her little sister for help and draw Olaf again.
K also made another drawing of the different characters of frozen – as finger puppets!
I can no longer recall the last time I wrote something on my blog unless of course, look into my last post”s date. I have been half dead (I”d like to call it that way!) and still walking to get through rough moments of life. You know, ugly stitches (by this I mean experiences and trials) come along. I just have to be as tough as the Walking Dead”s sheriff and as bad-ass as sexy Daryl (Norman Reedus, who else?).
Yes! I am totally excited that The casino jameshallison Walking Dead is back for its Season 4. And equally excited that I am back writing here too! If “I want”, “I will” and “I can”… at the end of the day, I”d say – “I did!”. That”s gonna be a good night sleep, right?
So, that is it for now. I will surely be back with much more positive and great updates!
My tabletop electric oven was a gift. I have been eyeing a beautiful oven from the appliance center for a long time but saving to get it will take a lot longer. So, with a friend”s suggestion, and since I am not really planning on using it for business purposes (using it now just for my kids), I told Ronald (yes, he”s the financier for this oven) that I would go for this one.
I have been Pinterest inspired! As soon as I have read the manual for this tabletop oven, I started baking! I have had my share of baking failures but have a atoledo.com lot of successful ones too.
Most of my baked goodies were Chocolate and Banana flavored and Carrot too. I make them during weekends so it will be ready as school snack for my elder daughter, K. I would always let her bring more than she could eat so she can share some to her friends too. Or sometimes, I remind her to eat (if there are leftovers) as afternoon snack while she is travelling home bound.
Last Christmas season, I got the chance to frequently use my tabletop oven – served its purpose very well for some goodies which we made and gave as gifts. I am sure that this oven will last for quite long, besides it being durable (a testimonial of my baker friend, Iris of Project Happiness ), I have been extra careful using it. =)
Yesterday was my Mama’s 2nd death anniversary. We offered a mass for her soul and dropped by the cemetery. I’ve been dreaming of her almost every week which made me truly miss her. These adjectives aren’t enough to describe how wonderful she’s been not just to me but to my kids and so as my friends. A lot can testify on that.
Losing a Mother is really though but it has made me tougher as a person and a Mom too. I could not thank my Mom enough for all of what she taught and imparted me. As go on with life, I feel so blessed and lucky that I was once her baby. If given another chance to live, I would like her to be my Mother again.
Mama, I miss you! We miss you!
We hope that you are so much happier now in heaven!
