Birth Announcements

The one thing that I didn’t experience when I was pregnant was to have a baby shower. I have a few friends and my hubby’s family is not that huge either so I didn’t insist on having one even my friends are volunteering in organizing it. And when I gave birth I didn’t give out photo birth announcements either. Now I felt bad about it. I guess I was so overwhelmed being a mommy at that time. I am just thankful that my friends who are also mommies and soon to be mommies now never forget me in sending baby shower invitations and photo birth announcements, which I truly appreciate. I just actually received one from our friends in Minnesota. They had a cute baby girl. They sent me a birth announcement similar to this one:

Pretty isn't it? They are from Check out their website for custom photo announcements (i.e. wedding, birth, and even holiday photo cards) in very affordable prices.

The Bird Died !

Not birdie, the blue parakeet.. not that one.. but the yellow parakeet that hubby just bought one or two weeks ago. I don't know what happen. Last Wednesday I checked on it and they are still both so alive. I didn't check 'em yesterday coz I was out almost all day. Then today, I saw the yellow bird lifeless.. It looks like they had a fight and since the blue bird is bigger I guess she beat up the yellow one. :(

Boots Made For Walking

There’s another website worth sharing with you guys. It’s called, wherein you can buy work boots for your hubby or even for yourself. I like the style of the Street Smart Boots not just because it looks so comfy or the pretty style but also because it is waterproof, meaning I can use it during winter time when it’s snowing. The price isn’t bad either considering the material used was a waterproof suede leather.

ICE Your Phone

In this modern society, I think cellphones have become one of the necessities for most individuals. With it, we’re able to keep in touch with our family, friends and to some, with their business associates. It’s just a perfect way to stay connected and has this feeling of being secured when you have one specially in case of emergency.

However, we can add another good use of our cellphones. It is called ICE your phone. You might ask what do I mean by that. ICE stands for In Case Of Emergency. How it works: First off, you need to choose a responsible person to be your ICE contact, then inform them that you chose them, give them all the info about you i.e. your medications, allergies, doctors etc. Then add them to your cellular’s phone book, then simply apply the ICE sticker to your cellphone. The point of the ICE sticker is to let the rescuers, doctors, paramedics or police officers know that it is ok to check your cellphone and reach the person that you wanted to be contacted in case you were in an accident or other emergency. I guess its our cue to ICE our phones. It can save lives. Need more info? Visit

Payday Lenders

There are many factors in having bad credit history. One is probably breakup of a relationship or marriage or loss of a job. Many people in this situation uses payday loans to get back on track. One of these people is my friend. She got out of a bad relationship with nothing on her wallet and have one kid. She maxed out her credit cards and couldn’t pay it anymore. Having not a lot of options, she decided to go to one of the Illinois payday loans, which happen to be a South Holland payday loan cause that is the closest in her area. The last time I talked to her, she was very happy she didn’t procrastinate in doing it cause it helped her a lot. If you would like to know the Payday Cash Advance Loans Center in your area, you can simply visit, your complete online source for payday loans!

Coupons Etc

Easter is just around the corner and I am sure a lot of moms out there are looking forward to buying their little tots something, like new outfits for church, stuff that they’d use for egg hunting etc. Stores are more likely crowded again, so I bet some will probably prefer to shop online, which is in my opinion, more convenient. Frugal mommies are always on the look out for good deals and would sure love to use coupons. One of the top online coupon websites is called which covers a wide range of products. Whether you are looking for Toys “R” Us coupon codes or WalMart deals, CouponChief has it.
