Shoo fly, don't bother me...

Why does some people have to be such a pest?
Like flies... they're so annoying when they're around you! And as much as you want to respect God's creations... you can't help but want to swat the crap out of them!

Seriously though... how can one not know or sense that you do not want to be bothered? How can one not feel that they're talking way too much? How can one not take the hints of monotonous responses and no eye contacts?

This honestly really frustrates me to no end!
So can anyone please tell me what is the nicest way to tell someone to shut up? Or is it even possible to tell someone off without them getting hurt?

Or just suffer...

Motherhood: When you want to be alone...

Every Stay-At-Home Moms have a different story to tell. Not many of us are financially blessed... not many of us have a "hands-on-daddy" working husband... and not many of us have behaved children.

Everyday can be different for us but surely doesn't get any easier. Day to day we cope and each day we get mentally stronger. But the stronger we get, the faster we get burned out.

And when that happens... we just want to be alone...

Unfortunately... we can't get our "alone" time whenever we need it... or better yet, we could never get a guilt-free alone time LOL!!!

So how do we deal with it? I won't speak for others... but in my case, I usually just wait till my daughter is asleep and have my alone time then and vent to my friends like no one's business! LOL!

How about you? How do you handle it when you have had enough?... Maybe we can learn new tactics from each other LOL... do share your tricks LOL!

Friday, September 14, 2012


You wake up one day and find yourself back in time... back to your teenage self... back to the day where you wished you were older and was thinking how awesome it would be to be older...

After freaking out... will you see it as an opportunity to live your life better or would you get all upset and hate to have to live your life twice?

Just a thought... one of my many what ifs question... something to think about...

How To Change Blogger Simple Template Sidebar Background Color Part 2

Previously, I shared a little tip on how to change your sidebar background color with the new blogger interface's simple template. I was going to share more infos on that but I got really sleepy LOL!

Anyway, I will get into a little bit more details today and share how to change the background color of a certain widget only rather than the whole sidebar.

Again, this is for the New Blogger Interface "Simple Template"...

First: Go to Template >> Edit HTML >> Proceed

Second: Press "ctrl+f" for windows or "command+f" for mac and find the code below

Third: Right below that code, look up the widget id name for that particular widget you wanted to change the background color on. For example, if it's the followers widget, then the widget id is "Followers1"... Take note: It is case sensitive.

Fourth: Once you got your widget id, find this code below again to start working on your css.

Fifth: Right above that code, copy and paste this code below

*Remember to replace your widget id where it says Followers1 and change the color where it says ffffff*

Last: Click Preview or Save Template and you're done! :)

So there you go! Hope this has helped in some way... somehow! LOL! Please be advised, that again, I'm no expert... I'm just sharing what worked for me! So if ever, do take your bitterness elsewhere! LOL! Thank you and have a good day/night :)

How To Change Blogger Simple Template Sidebar Background Color Part 1

This is so random but a friend of mine was having troubles changing her blog's sidebar color using the new blogger interface's "Simple Template" and have asked me for help since I'm also using the new blogger interface's simple template for my biz blog. Well, ok, so I'm no expert LOL, but I thought I'd share how I edited mine just in case anybody else out there is having the same problem.

Again, this is for the New Blogger Interface "Simple Template"...

First: Go to Template >> Edit HTML >> Proceed

Second: Press "ctrl+f" for windows or "command+f" for mac and find the code below

Third: Right above that code, copy and paste this code below

Fourth: So it should look like this

Last: Click Preview or Save Template and you're done! :)

And yes, it is just a simple css code but with this simple code, you can really do so much more! Change the background color to your desire, add border if you wish and all that jazz! LOL!

Nothing fancy but hopefully, it's how you want it and will work for you too! Good luck! :)

Nyomi's 2nd Birthday Party...

If you happened to have read my previous posts, then you'd know that my little angel, Nyomi Anne, had just turned 2 the past Tuesday, the 24th, and had her birthday party the past Saturday, the 28th.

Before I continue though, I wanted to first share a picture of her actual party invitation card since the last one I posted on here was an e-invite image.

Anyway, the card says it all... The party was a Sesame Street inspired party...
In the hopes for at least a cloudy day, we still went ahead and decorated and set up the front and backyard...
But as expected, it sure wasn't a sunny day that swept the clouds away! LOL! The sun only came out for a bit and then mostly rain and it was really cold. So we had to move a lot of stuffs back in the house. And even though I've been stressing about the weather, thinking that it's gonna be too crowded inside the house... It actually wasn't so bad and we all had a great time!

Here's her Sweet Table that had to be set up at the garage LOL!!!
Remember my vent about the cake? LOL... Well, I still wish it had been done... I still wish the cake designer did not back out on me like that. But I'm glad that I found a not-so-bad one at Wal-Mart! LOL! I have to get two separate cakes though to make it a two-tiered cake myself because if you ask for a two tier cake made, they consider it as a wedding cake and it costs a whole lot LOL!!! Weird and stupid but oh well... I found something ok so I'm not gonna throw a fit.
Ahhh the sesame street cupcakes... simply made out of colored icings, candy melts, peanut m&ms, oreos, chips ahoy and bugles chips! LOL!!!!!
Here's the lamp post that Noel made and the backdrop. I got this image from Aaron over at flickr, with permission to edit and use of course. I am also planning to sell the backdrop too but I have to go to the post office to check the shipping prices before I do. So if you're having a sesame street party in the future... let me know! I will definitely set up my etsy soon ;)
And yay! The happy birthday girl! She really had a blast! And I'm glad she did!!! Everything paid off! And thanks to those who came and joined the fun! If you're wondering where are the pictures of the food... uh... LOL... I didn't get to take much shot of it... a lot of our friends came early so as soon as the dish is ready... serve! LOL!

Now before I sign off... And aside from my family that helped made this party happened, there are certain friends and vendors that I want to give credit to...

1. Rhodora Suematsu (Nyomi's Godmother) - For the party decors!!! I couldn't have done it without her support LOL!
2. Hanna Boyle (Nyomi's Godmother) - For the large street signs and the backdrop.
3. Shop Sweet Lulu - For the pretty packaging supplies
4. HeyYoYo - For the cupcake liners

Quite A Bummer...

I've been monitoring the weather for this Saturday, oh say, more than a week now. It has been saying that it's going to be sunny, to mostly sunny, to possible showers and now, 50% rain.

That's of course a downer... But heck, I'm sure we're gonna have a great time regardless...

Unfortunately, this is not the end of it!

For the past month and so, I have been looking for a decent cake artist that's not going to charge me a whole lot since I wanted a certain design cake and have no time to do it myself with all the stuffs I have to prepare.

Well... A friend of mine offered and that her friend is an artist and willing to do it for me. That was all set until today...

The artist decided to back out and didn't have the time to do it! SAD! Why do that the last minute...

I wish I was told a little sooner...

But I'll live LOL... I just needed to vent...

Anyhoo... Got more stuffs to work on... Rain or shine, we'll have a blast! Till I blog again! :)

Two Years Ago...

2 years ago around this time... I was terrified, in pain, miserable and exhausted. But I must've done something good in my life that God gave me a beautiful baby girl.

Having her made me want to be a mother... having her helped prepare me to fight my battle with cancer... And having her made cancer itself seem feeble.

And now she's 2, I am grateful that I get to live this far and get to watch her grow and witness all the things she does (yes! That includes the stress LOL)...

And to you, Nyomi Anne Ledesma, my wonderful angel and princess... Happy happy birthday! I wish you lots of love and all the happiness in this world. You just make me so proud and i love you so much!

/end drama LOL!
