A Barbecue Party for the Family

Next week, I am planning a barbecue party for my family. It has been almost a year since we have an intimate and fun gathering as a family. I have been busy with my work as a financial consultant for a large company and my husband too is busy going in and out of the country for hi commitments in our business.

My children, all grown up now, are either busy with school work or their jobs. Steve is still in college and he just finished his very arduous thesis. Sometimes, he wants to be alone he can focus on his research. Marie is also graduating next month from his degree of communications and is now looking for a job. My eldest son Joshua is currently working in a bank where he serves as a manager.


He is also  busy with his part time business where he makes al living for being a graphic artist.

Anyway, next week, I wanted to make the family gathering a very special one. We have not been complete for almost a year now and I want this one to be very fun and intimate.

I sought the help of my friend Sophie. She will bake pasta for me while I bake a cake. I have also pre ordered pizza and some wine from my favorite convenience store.

For the theme, I want our garden to look cozy. I will set up a nice table for the food, buffet style. I also purchased three Adirondack chairs for my kids so they can lounge on there. I love adirondack chairs, they are so comfy and stylish and at the time, it fits in just about any occasion, and in any part of the house. The store where I bought the chairs is having a sale so I immediately grabbed the opportunity of purchasing three pieces, just in time for my planned barbecue party.

I also plan to make an AVP presentation for my kid who will graduate this month. I know she has been through a lot, in her school work and in personal life. She recently told me she just broke up with her boyfriend Jack and her studies were affected. Good thing she still managed to be one of the top in class for her graduation. That girl is full of confidence and she is very determined. I will compile her college pictures and probably get messages from her friends and family members. I will let her know how much we love her so much and that the feeling is she feeling right now is just a phase. I have gone through the same stage before and I want to let her know that that stage will soon pass. Besides, her future is so much brighter now that she is about to finish school. I know she will land a nice job in a media company and she will attain her goals in life just what she always claimed since she started dreaming.

I am very excited for the party next week!


A Surprise Birthday Present


So, it’s my husband’s birthday coming up, and I didn’t know what to get him. Let’s just say that I have bought him everything that I think that he has wanted over the years, and when this year came, it finally got to the point where I didn’t know what else that I could possibly buy him. He bought me a little trip, and we had a getaway for my last birthday, but he asked for something that was not quite that extravagant. He didn’t want to have to take time off of work or anything like that on me to buy him an object that is equally as impressive as that trip.

This has been proving to be exceedingly difficult, and I did not even know where to begin. A friend of mine recommended me to a website called survival cooking which ranks a bunch of different outdoor and camping supplies with extremely informative and quite impressively well written reviews. Needless to say, this was an invaluable tool in my experience shopping for my husband this year, and I ended up getting him something that I know that he is absolutely going to love. Last year, for Christmas, I got him an amazing watch. By doing that, all I had to do was go to search for the best watches under 500, and a lot of amazing results came up. I’m so grateful that the internet exists, and if there are so many good review pages and so many places to buy quality products from reputable sources, and I don’t know where I would be without that type of help from my online community and the websites like survival cooking. Cheers Survival Cooking, and thank you for helping me buy the perfect gift for my husband. I won’t say what it is right now, because he could end up reading this, even though he almost never does. But that’s just the way love works. If you give away gift idea, is the first time in four years he decides to read your blog.





My Electric Scooter Review

Have you heard about Unu Motors? I actually have not heard of them two years ago when I was using my old trusty scooter. But you know what; the company is first choice for electric scooter.

Here is my story with Unu Motors. I had difficulty in my scooter back then. It actually gave me a lot of hassle every day I thought I had a mistake in buying such before. Not until I met Lindsey, a fellow worker who reports to work with a very nice aura everyday and not as grumpy as me. One time U saw here in the parking area and I realized how chic her scooter was. When she went off, I noticed her scooter did not have any sound at all which is really amazing. One day I asked her about scooter. I was amazed of what she told me after.

So apparently, her scooter is an electric one. She got it from Unu Motors, a company in The Netherlands. It provides what they tagged at as elektrische scooter. Not just it creates not sound at all but it is also very convenient for a commuter like me. She told her electric scooter can last up to three hours of continues driving.

And so I decided to buy one for myself. You know, I am always open to new innovations. I am not like of those you love buying new gadgets or what not without thinking of its fir the long term. I know that Unu Motors will add to my list of important things because it helps a lot not only for the user but for many as well. I love how I was able to introduce to this innovation. It really is awesome and I know you will enjoy too the vitality of Unu Motors.
