One of the best times we had this month is the beach time at in Presque Isle. It is a famous spot in upper Pennsylvania. Especially that Lake Erie is one of the great lakes in Northeastern part of America. Presque Isle is in a peninsula and it has lots of beaches around it. We are in the beach 7 in these pictures and if you are wondering where I am, I am like you watching the pictures because I’m the one who took their pictures. Anyhow, in this pictures is George – my toddler, my husband and Vince’s god father who came to join with us. Going to this beach is fun like swimming in the pool only then it has no chlorine compared to the pool.
Daddy is trying to teach George to float in the water.
We just got our serious physical exercise started indoors two weeks ago. We thought of joining either YMCA or SnapFitness fitness gyms. We could’ve joined YMCA as a family membership but they are only open until 8/9PM on weekdays and half day on weekends in our area. SnapFitness is open 24 hours 7 times a week and is more adjustable schedule for my husband who comes home at 6:30 PM every weekdays. And so we signed up there for monthly membership. We had a good deal that we are just going to pay 40 bucks per month instead of 100 because we signed up as a couple. Pretty good deal isn’t it?
They got lots of exercise equipment there and they got a friendly and safe environment. The drill is to have a warm up exercise first, then the strength exercise and the cardio exercise in the last. I am doing 10 different strength exercise, lifting weights 20 times on each strength exercise. It is my first time to be in a gym so I am taking it easy. My husband and I hope to lose weight and that our hearts will be strengthened to avoid high cholesterol levels.
I was touched of how Mommy Jes organized her daughter’s school things. She personalized them with her daughter’s name in it, in stickers and tags that lovable labels produced. It is so colorful and cute. And I thought that was pretty neat idea so that the things of your children won’t easily mix to other kid’s things when they have activities, and that it can also avoid confusion when your kids stuff are being borrowed by their classmates. Anyhow, if… read more
One Sunday, on our way to mass, my husband was driving the car 45 miles per hour and I opened my car window. All of the sudden the wind blow my hair upwards as I saw my reflection on the car right side window. I thought of taking pictures of myself with my Ipod touch using its front camera so I can see myself while taking pictures. I felt like my head is having a massage as the wind blow it. The wind was refreshing and it helped as a natural blow dryer for my hair. I looked weird but the hair looked cool.
I am joining Pink Fridays and Crazy over purples this week. Visit more entries here: read more

Dear readers, friends and fellowships in the blog world,
First of all, I want to thank God for the blessings I received online and in real life. Flashbacks came to my mind today of how I started blogging in the very first post of this main blog of mine. I need not to say it again because its kind of a long story. Most of it I have written in the post during my 2nd blog anniversary. I am so happy that hearts content of a mama is still online until now and that it contained the progress of my being a mother, a wife, and a friend. It has been part of my daily confidence as I learn from other moms, women and talented people I met online. Your appreciation through commenting really made me inspired. I value your friendship and I am happy that we are able to connect offline like sending letters, cards, postcards and gifts. Let’s keep the spirit!
I want to thank you all for listening my views in life in this blog also. Though I may be sometimes moody in writing and haven’t been online much lately due to my new stage in life of having 2 kids to take care at home, I am very happy that you are able to visit, comment and read in this blog. I have a long list of blogs to visit back here. And I am praying for you folks that may God will bless you for being so patient and understanding about my situation.
Anyhow, for my expression of gratitude for you all is to launch another blog anniversary giveaway. I hope you can find time to read my prizes at stake and join my simplest mechanics below. I am also awarding a total of 17,000 entrecard credits to the following top 10 commenters during the third year that this blog existed in the world wide web. Will send notification and credits to your entrecard profile soon. Congratulations!
Just a quick note folks. My world got busy in the last 3 days and I can only sneak peak in my computer and blog hopping. Yesterday, I thought I could focus on taking pictures and finalizing the mechanics of my blog anniversary giveaway but my schedule got messed up when my art instructor thought I did not confirmed my class with her. I went to the place where we will meet but she wasn’t there. I felt bummed. Oh… read more
