FROGS - OMG I saw the cutest thing...

Remember a while ago when I posted a photo asking if anyone can identify the poop I saw on my windowsill? When I shared the pic on a few social media pages, I received all sorts of answers. Field mice poop, snake poop, lizard poop, mole poop, etc. We've checked and although we do have snakes, rabbits, deer, turtles and other animals that frequent our yards, frogs consider my home paradise. I don't know why I didn't think of…

Trying Fay's Pepper Steak Recipe - CookLikeAJamaican.com

I like to eat all types of food. What do you expect? I'm a half Trinidadian, 1/2 Puerto Rican woman who grew up with a Jamaican Stepfather who was a chef. Living in NY I had endless options when it came to food. NY is a Cultural melting pot. I frequented restaurants that served American food, loved Italian food and placed orders often at Chinese restaurants, lol. Man, my mouth is watering just thinking about…

Conversation with my son

Every weekend my kids want to have company come over. I'm always reminding them that I don't have a built in card in my brain that automatically stores the contact information for everyone I meet, and neither do they, so they need to physically exchange numbers with their friends. Do they? No, but every weekend we seem to have…

Bee Sili SUPER Silicone BBQ Grill Oven Gloves & Basting Review

I'm going to be honest. When I opened the package and took a good look at the Bee Sili Silicone Grill and Oven Gloves, I DID NOT think they would actually protect my hands when handling hot food. They're a pretty pair of gloves and includes a really nice...FREE basting brush, but I mean really?…

Mi Bella Reina 24K Gold Face and Neck Mask

After posting about the 25% off discount for Mi Bella Reina's 24K Gold Face and Neck Mask, I couldn't wait for my shipment to arrive. I saw the stock photos, but I still wasn't sure what to expect. I've tried face masks in the past, but they would be creams that dry and I would have to peel off the pieces, or it…

Busch Gardens Tampa Experience

Our day at Busch Gardens Tampa was fantastic! On Friday, we made the drive to Tampa for the weekend. It was pouring rain on Friday and according to weather forecasters, it was supposed to be pouring again on Saturday with sprinkles on Sunday.…

"Food tastes better in the Dining Room"

My son's birthday just passed. Since it's the beginning of the week and we'll be celebrating on the weekend, we knew we still had to do something ON his birthday so I baked a cake and cooked dinner. We always eat food at the same time, which is whatever time I finish cooking, but we eat in different rooms. My kids eat in the kitchen, I usually eat in my room while watching one of my favorite shows and my husband likes to eat in…

Spin Master - Zoomer / Shadow 2.0 Review

My kids are always excited when a new toy shows up on our doorstep. Especially when they see it advertised on television, and they can say, "hey, I've tried that!"



When Zoomer's best friend Shadow showed up, my kids were all too…

Adventure Landing & Shipwreck Island Water Park Review

I could not WAIT to visit Adventure Landing. Water + Park = Lots of fun! Especially since this Summer really sucked because of rain. Locally, our weather men and women would predict sunshine and we'd end up with a day full of lightening and thunder. I stopped listening to them years ago and knew when I checked the weather for Jacksonville and saw that it said 80% chance of rain, it would be perfect weather for…

Magnetic Screen Door from iGotTech Review

I have always wanted a mesh screen. I came close to purchasing one last year, but a friend of mine owns a few and always complained about how flimsy they were and that it didn't have an opening in the middle, so having to push it to the side to get through worked against keeping all bugs out. I was happy when a chance to try the Magnetic Screen Door came. Getting one that's supposedly the "#1 Best Screen" FREE? That's a…

Everglades Holiday Park Experience (Home of the Gator Boys!)

I was as excited as my husband and kids, anticipating this trip. When we got to the park, everything went smoothly. We picked up our tickets and went to the covered area waiting for our ticket number to be called for the airboat tour. There were a lot of people there, but the wait for the airboat tour was only about 10 minutes.



I know from seeing…

NEW Arm & Hammer Truly Radiant Toothpaste and Spinbrush

I have been using whitening toothpastes since I was a teen. I know the types of food eaten can result in yellow, cream color teeth and I like coffee but I don't drink it often enough for it to have an affect (at least I don't think it should). I've tried whitening strips, gels, mouth wash, some…

Starting an Avocado Tree

A few weeks ago I posted photos on my instagram page showing how beautifully my mother in law's fruits plants have grown. She has a papaya tree, avocado tree, banana tree, mango tree and more grown. There are a few others in their beginning stages. It only took about 5 years for some of her plants to start bearing fruit and I was thinking I should've started growing plants as soon as we bought our house. By now I would have…

Seeds of Change Organic Recipes

The rice comes in two forms. You can choose the packet or the box. The packet takes only 90 seconds to cook, but the boxed rice takes about 45 minutes to make. From a list of options, I decided to try the 'Seven Grain Shrimp Bowl' recipe, except with the Indian Rice Blend and omitting the ingredients my family would not want, red peppers for example. This way, dinner would be ready quickly!…

Mommy, what's this?

Today my son came into my room with this really strange disk thingy in one hand and a rectangular thingamajig in the other. At first I was so ready to yell at him, wondering why he's walking around the house with a smoke detector but as he got closer I realized it wasn't a smoke detector. The condition of it made it look like it could've been some type of artifact used by our grandparents, but it wasn't. At first, I myself…

Bored already? Summer break just began!

School's over for my kids and with today being the first Monday of the break, it's evident that they're bored already! Around 11am, my youngest child asked me if he can go to school. LOL…

What's the deal with New Math?

The image on the right (or at least something similar) has been circulating the web for a while now. Initially I thought it was just another silly share going around, but today as it was posted I decided to click the link included with the post. It mentioned something called Common Core Math Standards and apparently it's already "standard" in some schools. This makes me nervous!…

WOAH!!! @ Disney World Ticket Prices!

I was watching a re-run of Roseanne where David was hired to play "Hans the Hare" for a theme park. She was talking about the expensive cost to get into the theme park just to see some rabbits and it reminded me a lot of the expensive cost to see a mouse.

During the episode, the price was about $30-something, so that surprised me. I'm thinking,…
