Greetings From San Antonio, Texas!

Welcome to the "Lone Star State"!
We rented a car for 2 days...glad our car arrived today. Well actually our car was shipped a week ago. The shipping people just dropped it today because they're not open on weekends.
Went shopping at Walmart store yesterday....
 Looking forward to explore San Antonio this weekend.

Need Blinds?

Moving is definitely exhausting, especially when you've got a little one along for the ride. We feel so lost but yet excited to be here in Texas.We just moved into a new place a few days ago. And I hope we are going to like it here. The good news is the moving truck arrived yesterday to dropped our stuff. I can't wait to decorate our new home, but the problem is I have no idea where to start unpacking. I was trying to find the curtains yesterday but I have no idea where it went. I think I'll just buy some blinds this weekend. I am planning to purchase it at This place is awesome because they always offer a free shipping on all your orders and you can also order a FREE samples of their product.

Stratosphere, Las Vegas

Stratosphere Las Vegas is a tower, hotel, and casino located on the Las Vegas Strip in Las Vegas, Nevada. Its tower is also the tallest tower, and the 5th-tallest structure, in the United States, as well as being the tallest structure in Las Vegas.
The hotel is a separate building with 24 stories, 2,427 rooms and an 80,000 square feet (7,400 m2) casino.
Akesha was 6 months old the last time we went there.
The top of the tower has two observation decks, a restaurant known as "Top of the World" (revolving restaurant), and three thrill rides:

* Big Shot at 1,081 ft (329 m) is the highest thrill ride in the world
* Insanity, opened in 2005, at 900 ft (270 m) is the second highest thrill ride in the world; it dangles riders over the edge of the tower and then spins in a circular pattern at approximately forty miles per hour
* SkyJump Las Vegas, a controlled descent, Bungee jumping-like ride that will allow riders to plummet 855 ft (261 m) attached to a high speed, descent wire. SkyJump opened on April 20, 2010.

Daily Deals at

Shopping is my cup of tea. I love to shop all the time especially when it is on sale. And most of my shopping spree happens online. Online shopping is a great advantage for a stay-at-home mom like me and it is a way to save time and a convenient way to buy products. I can browse through some of the best online shopping sites which is fun. I also think I get better offers with the ongoing sales and discounts for leading premium brands. To find a best buy on sale items, clearance blowouts, hot electronics, cool computers, as well as the latest music, movies and books, and so much more right at

So I told him to check abt electronics coupons. is a great place to shop online whether you’re looking for big appliance brands like Whirlpool and GE, or for electronics products from major names such as Apple, Sony and Garmin.

Nostalgia: Crossing the Golden Gate Bridge

It’s another fun Thursday once again! It’s Nostalgia time. Thanks to sis Rose for creating this nostalgic meme. Here's my entry for this week.

Photos were taken when we crossed the Golden Gate Bridge going to Sausalito. We drove down to San Francisco for a family gate away and spent the whole day in the city.
 Akesha was 11 months old at that time. And it's pretty amazing how behaved she was. She's just enjoying the ride I guess. It was a great adventure for us. I wish we could do it again in the future.

Want Some Abs?

My brother likes going to the gym every single day and he also takes an ab workout class. His major goal is to get six pack abs. He is very motivated and I am sure he will achieve his goal pretty soon. One thing I would like to get for him on his birthday is the flex belt. This is the best ab workout ever! It targets the main abdominal muscle groups, rectus abdominis, transversus abdominis, as well as the internal and external obliques. I would like to get one for myself too.

Ruby Tuesday: A Bucket of Strawberries

It's strawberry picking season time. In the U.S. strawberries typically peak during April in Florida and Texas, May in the deep South, and in early June in middle sections and later June in the far North and Canada. Crops are ready at various times of the month depending on which part of the state you are located.
 A bucket of strawberries for only $11.00. It's cheap and it's organic!

Tips on How to Pick Strawberries

1. Grasp the stem just above the berry between the forefinger and the thumbnail and pull with a slight twisting motion.

2. With the stem broken about one-half inch from the berry, allow it to roll into the palm of your to pick strawberries

3. Repeat these operations using both hands until each holds 3 or 4 berries.

4. Carefully place - don't throw - the fruit into your containers. Repeat the picking process with both hands.

5. Don't overfill your containers or try to pack the berries down.

DVD Duplication

My nephew is a musician. He is a songwriter, a drummer and a guitarist. He and his band perform regularly in the Bay Area. They also made a few appearances across the country to support some charity groups. I heard that they are going to release a new album. I can't wait for the album to come out so I can get a copy of it. Right now they are in the process of looking for the best CD and DVD duplication services that will help them print and package their product. I am thinking that they should check out Precision Disc.
