Birthday Month

Well it’s official, my age can now be rounded up to 30! And yes I still enjoy birthdays! My husband makes fun of me because he calls August my birthday month!

These are my beautiful friends that came to celebrate my birthday! That’s me in the middle! 🙂 I don’t look a day over 21! haha I really did have an amazing birthday. My mom cooked me Filipino food on my actual B-day and we had ice cream cake. I feel so blessed to have my family and friends who always knows how to make my day! 🙂

On a different note, my daughter is interested in the potty…she is about 18 months. I know that seems early since my son did not even start till he was 2 and 1/2. But I guess we’ll give it a shot! I am thrilled to think of not having to change anymore diapers! Woohoo! Until we have our next one…hehehe… I thought I didn’t want anymore but I’m second guessing now! I’m an only child so I’ve always wanted a big family! I know it will take a little convincing for my husband to agree. I will have to work my magic 😉

Duty calls, my kids are yelling at each other over the same toy…this seems to be a constant problem! Tata for now!


Wow, I am bad at this!

Ok, so I’m pretty sure I suck at blogging. Hahaha…I am just a busy body and my kids keep me going all day everyday! So my goal will be at least once a week. I’m working on a few how-tos. I have so many different projects that I would love to share. I know I spend a majority of the time on the internet looking for easy tutorials and DIY projects, even if my husband thinks I spend all that time on Facebook chatting with friends or online shopping. Typical! My how-tos aren’t quite ready so I will just make a list of what you will expect to find in the next few days.

1. Friendship Bracelets

2. Superhero cape

3. My favorite recipes

4. Tutus

5. Headbands

6. Paint a wall

Those are just a few things.

Here is Bri in her Spring tutu, I made her. (above)

The superhero capes. One of my best friends had a superhero party theme and maybe I can share some of our ideas to those who are interested!

Alright, I must end it here because I have a fun filled day today at the water park with my family! Until next time… 🙂




Introducing Me!

I am starting this blog, hoping that I can share my ideas and make a connection with other moms who share the same passion as I do, and that is my children. Everything that I do is revolved around them and how to make everyday just a tad bit more interesting than the day before. I have blogged before but I want to try my hand in becoming a “Digital Mom,” and see where it will take me. I want to start by introducing myself, my name is Maribel, most people call me Maribel but a select few of my friends and family call me Bel. I remember when I was a little girl, I used to want everyone to call me Bel because my favorite Disney movie was Beauty and the Beast. But anyways…I want to move on and talk about my family.

This is my husband Steve w/ our daughter Bri. I met my husband Steve when I was a Junior in high school. It’s actually a really cute story but I might have to devote an entire blog entry about our love story! We have been together for almost 8 years! I take pride in our strengths as a couple and I do not deny the imperfections but I know we will always find a way to make things work out. Steve is a very devoted husband and father. He works hard and is passionate about what he does which is teaching and coaching sports. I am very lucky that I found a guy like Steve, I believe he is one of a kind!

Next topic…my two little monkeys! Bryce and Brianna.

My everyday life revolves around these two crazy kids… and yes there are days where they drive me absolutely crazy. But they are also what keeps me inspired and motivated everyday! Bryce is 4 and a half and Bri is 1 and a half. Bryce is a social butterfly! He is not by any means shy! He will introduce himself, ask you questions about your life and he will even shake your hand afterwards and say “It was very nice to meet you, I’ll come to visit again!” My daughter on the other hand is very hard to please…maybe its because she is still young but she clings to her mama like no other! Bri LOVES food, and that is not an understatement…she has never turned down any type of food!

Well, I hate to leave this blog open ended but duty calls and I have to put the kiddies to bed! Till next time! Hopefully I can post my first how-to next time!
