Stand Up For Family


This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of American Family Insurance for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


Any type of family get together is a bonding moment with your loved ones. For me and hubby, we only have our own daughter with us, the two step daughters who are grown are now living on their own. This is the reason why when chances of being together come, we always make it a point to go to be with one another as a whole family again, even temporary. We have to treasure the moment we are together. Just like the Stand Up For Family show being presented by American Family Insurance, it is another way of bringing up the family together. It is a wholesome show which every member can relate where some of today's hottest comedians would present experiences from their own families in a very humorous way. Laughing it out with the family is a perfect spending of quality time together.
Family is important. To me, my family is the one who gives me unconditional love and support. I was so happy that we celebrated out thanksgiving tonight with the whole family. It was a loving five hours of being together. Although some have to leave early because of work and the little kids got bored (because they did not bring any of their games), we had a great time. When kids started complaining, it reminds me of the video clip for the AmFam comedy show where Bill Bellamy was talking about how kids were being creative back in the days. Now, it is totally different. When kids do not have their games or gadgets, after a while, they will say it is boring. Why not play hide and seek or tagging game just like how we do it when we were kids? I wish we can go back to those times where kids are having more fun outside the house not sitting in front of the computer or playing electronic games. I am so seriously talking here but when you see how Bill Bellamy do a stand up comedy about “Still Free,” it is hilarious. Stand Up For Family is a great show for the family.

Shopping For Prescription Glasses


This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zenni Optical for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


I already have a pair of prescription glasses but I want an extra pair. Do not ask me how much I paid for my first glasses. Had I known about Zenni Optical’s quality but cheap eyeglasses , I could have saved a lot of money for my Christmas shopping.

As I was saying, I need another pair of prescription glasses so that I can leave it in my car for emergencies. We always say we learned a lot from experience and that’s exactly what happened to me. Last Tuesday, I forgot to grab my glasses on my way out going to school and I was in my class having a hard time reading my textbook. I am far sighted so I was fine driving and reading what my professor wrote on the board but everything was blurry when I read my notes and book. I was miserable. Good thing, we did not have a quiz that day. Lesson learned: get another pair of eyeglasses.

I still have a copy of my prescription that I can send to Zenni Optical but why are Zenni’s eyeglasses a lot cheaper than other brands? Because, Zenni manufactures its own brand using the latest modern materials and they sell direct from their factories to the customers. There is no middlemen, no retail overhead and advertising expenses that would add up to the cost. I already know which design I want to order. A $16 pair of prescription eyeglasses is all I need in today’s economy. Always save when you shop. Thanks Zenni for the savings and a fashionable eyeglasses.

What's Cooking?


My kitchen is busy since noon time. The morning was spent going to the supermarket for last minute ingredients and food shopping. I prefer going to the grocery early Thursday morning than Wednesday night, if i really have to make a second trip. Our supermarket is open up to 4pm today so it is another thing to be thankful of.

So, what's cooking in my kitchen? We are not going to have the Thanksgiving dinner at my house this year but my assignment is to bring some seafood. I am making glazed baked salmon, yellow rice and stir fry asparagus plus two trays of shrimp cocktail my husband ordered.

Hope everybody is enjoying their celebration of Thanksgiving with family and friends.

Full Size Comforter Set For Home


I have been delaying my shopping for comforter sets for my daughter. Since we upgraded her bed to a full size, I have not bought anything yet for the winter. I have a lot of full bed sheet sets but I need thick blankets and comforter sets. I only have twin size comforters for the bed she used to have. So, what am I waiting for? I am waiting for a big sale where I can have big discounts when I go shopping.

BrylaneHome is having a sale right now on their comforters and sets. By using the promo code BHWEBHITS, you can get 20% off your highest priced item plus free shipping upgrade. Almost all the comforter set collection is on sale up to 60% off and with the additional savings by using the code, I can get a big discount. Other discounts are also available when you open a Brylanehome credit card.

I like to get this for Isabella’s room. I do not think I still need the tailored valance but the grape color really matches her curtains. It is a reversible comforter set that includes sheets, pillowcases and shams. This will be a perfect for her forthcoming birthday too.

Love to Cook!


Guest post written by Arnoldo Acevedo

I’ve always loved to cook and when I got old enough for my own place I totally decked my kitchen out. I got the copper pans and all the cookware you could imagine and I even got that Viking stove I’d heard so much about for so long. When I moved in I also went to make sure I’d get the Food Network because that’s pretty much all that’s ever one my TV, if we’re being honest. I can’t imagine a time when I’m not watching Rachel Rayor Barefoot Contessa whip something up and you know, I think I’ve learned a lot just from absorbing what they say. I think my all time favorite has to be Nigella Lawson because she’s so sultry and sexy and she’s got that awesome British accent. She’s a really good cook, too and you can’t really ask for more in a woman than that! My mom sure wishes I’d find someone like her and settle down but you know, I can cook for myself!

Eat All You Can @ CiCi's


It is all you can eat at Cici's pizza. You select from at least seven to eight varieties of pizzas like pepperoni, cheese, chicken with white sauce (my favorite), spinach in white sauce, beef, ham, pasta, etc. There is endless pasta, chicken macaroni soup, bread sticks and a small salad bar. For your dessert, they have brownies and cinnamon roll. Their pizza is good and what i like more is that they are thin pizzas.

Price for adults is $7 and kids are $4. Drinks are additional.

How Does Advertising Agencies Come Up With Effective Campaigns?


Here is a scenario. When we go shopping, the daughter will normally see kids stuffs on the shelves that she does not really pay too much attention but as soon as we get home and she sees those on TV, she would right away says “mommy, I want that for my Christmas present?” When she sees things being advertised on TV or internet, it has a different impact than when she just sees them in a store. I give big credit to the advertising agency that does the campaign for these products. Even me as a mom, the ads I see on TV has big influence on the way I shop especially on food and health and beauty products. I would not know these new products on the market and how effective they are unless I see the ads on TV, newspapers or while surfing online. I become aware of its existence. The ad I see is so effective; makes me want to buy the product and try it.

If you have new products to sell or advertise, THAT! Advertising Agency can help you with the ad campaign using the new trends in advertising. Their main goal is to make the client happy through the success of the advertising campaign they offer and big return on investment. More information about THAT! Advertising Company can be found on

Candies For Trick or Treaters


Two weeks before halloween, I already have bags of candies for trick or treaters. The kids that come at my house is unpredictable, sometimes they come as if a bus just parked at the corner and other times, we only get a few. So what do we do with all the extra candies? They go to the balikbayan box so with the candies that Isabella will get from trick or treating. My husband takes care of the kids that would come knocking on Halloween while me and Isabella will go trick or treating.

Auto Insurance For Teens


At age 17, kids can start to drive. Just like the step daughter who was so excited to drive, she purchased her own car, not at 17 though but as soon as she turned 18 years old. She has a job so she has the money to buy a car. When you are a teenager and driving, first you have to face is your monthly car insurance. There is no such thing as affordable car insurance for teen drivers especially if you live in my state.

How I wish I can get her a discount auto insurance. The step daughter is paying more than her car note for her car insurance. I guess she was prepared for that because we never heard her complaining. We just keep on reminding her to be very careful when driving to avoid any points in her driver license. So far, she has been very good.

Do you want to get a free auto policy quotes for your car? Avail of the services being offered by to know what kind of coverage you may need for your car. For students like the step daughter, AIM Auto Insurance has a program called inexpensive student coverage. Probably that is worth checking to save money for your kids who are starting to drive. For more information, just visit their website to contact them or get a free quote for your vehicle.
