Akesha's First Dental Appointment

Oh boy what a busy day! We got up super early this morning for Akesha's first dental appointment. After the dental appointment, I did a few errands and rake the leaves in our side yard. When we were at the dentist office Akesha was doing pretty good.
These are two different sizes of disposable fluoride trays to apply a fluoride treatment. The fluoride trays are inserted into Akesha's mouth. The fluoride should remain in the mouth for at least 60 seconds. A saliva ejector helps to suck up the excess fluoride foam.

A common question new parents have is "When should my child first see a dentist?" Not as early as they should, according to one study. A child's first visit to the dentist typically happens at about age 3 -- two years later than is recommended, reports the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. Experts say that getting an early start on dental care can be the most effective way to make sure a child's teeth have a healthy start.

"Vesace Sax Quarter" performing at the mall.
And this is the scenario when you go shopping with a 3 year old....gosh!

We also went to the drugstore to get multivitamins for Akesha. While I was looking around, I remember my brother told me that he wants an acne treatment medication to get rid of his acne problem. I asked the cashier what is the most usual acne treatments used? She said the most generally used acne medication is Benzoyl peroxide. So if you are looking for acne over the counter medication, use Benzoyl peroxide.

Magical Outdoor Christmas Lights
How would you like to turn your paper bags into dramatic luminarias? Luminaria came from Mexico and can now be frequently seen at homes throughout the Southwest. They are displayed during the Christmas season along walkways leading from the street or driveway to a home's front door, welcoming guests to the house.

Here's what you need to do

-Measure the distance from the front door to the driveway or sidewalk. You will want luminaria on both sides of the walkway, 2 to 3 feet apart.

-Gather enough white paper bags to make all the luminaria. Fill the bottom 2 inches of each bag with sand so they won't blow over in the wind and place them along the walkway.

-Place a tea light into each bag, pressing it securely in the sand.

-Light each tea light using a long-handled lighter that will allow you to reach the tea light before you pull the trigger and create the flame.

-Allow the tea lights to burn out on their own. Remove them and place fresh tea lights in the bag the next night.

Bird Cloud

Have you ever heard or have you ever seen a "bird cloud" before? You'll find out what I'm talking about when you watch the video.

It was 3 days ago when hubby and I saw the news of a massive bird cloud. An expert estimated it was a flock of up to 500,000 European Starling birds gathered in eastern Sacramento County. Few minutes away from where we live(maybe). The amazing flock of European starlings was captured on video by News10's Will Frampton along Highway 16 and Watt Avenue. I thought it is beautiful sight, its like a pure art form they do. Pretty amazing!

Our Simple Celebration

Sorry guys for being inactive lately. I'm just super busy studying and very anxious on my final tomorrow! I will get back and will blog hop after the final is over.

Anyhow, yesterday was hubby's 43rd birthday! Way to go mylabidabs! We had a simple celebration yesterday. Akesha and I woke up early in the morning to get the cake and the present which I hid them in the kitchen..we woke hubby up and we sang "Happy Birthday". I am glad hubby love the cake. I don't have time to go to the store, so I ended up using the cake mix I had in the cabinet for so!

Then we went out to eat at a Thai resto for dinner. Oh shoot! I forgot to bring my camera last night...:) thank goodness I have my phone with me. The ambiance is great and the food was ok. I definitely will not go back there!

Get a Good Night Sleep

Attaining a good nights sleep is very important. If your bed partner snores, you have choices: suffer with it, change your sleeping arrangements, try to make the snorer stop or use ear plugs yourself. If you have never tried the many different kinds of ear plugs available, I suggest you start with Pro-Fit Earplugs, which is hypo-allergenic and non- toxic.
Here are some benefits when you use Pro-Fit Earplugs:
• Perfect for sleep, study, work and loud events
• Custom molds to the contour of individual ears.
• Forms in minutes for a personalized comfortable fit.
• Hypo-allergenic & non-toxic.
• Reusable for 6 months.

I am so glad I got to review and keep this product. This product definitely helps me sleep through the night. I surely would recommend Acu-Life Pro-Fit Earplugs to friends and family. If you would like to get this product or would like to check other Acu- Life products, you should visit today. So what are you waiting for?

To the Man I LOVE....Happy Birthday!

Today is hubby's special day! Happy birthday Hon! I wish you good health and more years to come. I should have posted this earlier, but I was too busy studying on my upcoming final. Thanks a lot hon for everything. I don't have any flowering words to say...all I know is... I LOVE YOU and I always will. Happy Birthday!
You’re the best a wife could ask for
With all the love you bring
And you know it’s returned to you

So may happiness be with you always

Because you’re a Husband in a million
And I think the world of you
I love You Hon!

Look Who's Sitting on Santa's Lap!

Santa Claus is coming to town and well, he's already at the mall!! When Akesha was young she hated Santa. She has no desire to sit on Santa's lap or even glance at him. However, this year we finally got to convinced her to take a picture with Santa. She was very anxious while waiting for her turn, and I saw how nervous she! I am glad she brought "Sophie" with her. She agreed that she will only sit on Santa's lap if Sophie can come with! BTW, Sophie is her favorite stuffed animal.

Photo was taken a couple of weeks ago. I was not allowed to take a picture using my camera. Since it was Akesha's first time and we wanted the photo badly, we paid $20.00....weeeeeeee!

I love to shop online, and now that I found this auction site called Bidazzled, I probably will spend a lot of time there. This is a auction place where people can save 90% on retail items. The site also supports charities so you can feel good about purchasing from it. This type of website is called Penny Auctions or Pay-Per-Bid Auctions and can help you save you tons of money for the holidays. The price will increase a few cents with each bid placed and a few seconds are added to the countdown cock to give others a chance to bid. When the bids are finished, you could win at a great discount. Most of the auction winners save over 80% but even if you don't win the auction, you could still get up to 50 Bonus Bids. If you use one of these codes, you can get 15 additional bids.

Glitter-Dotted Ornaments

A simple motif of glittering polka dots turns ordinary glass ball ornaments into something special. Throw in a few free-form swipes of silver or gold, and you have the makings of a truly unique Christmas tree decoration.

Materials and Tools

* Round, plain glass Christmas ornament
* Crafts glue
* Pencil with unused round eraser
* Glitter in silver or gold
* Paint marker pen in silver or gold


1. Using the photo as your inspiration, dab the round eraser end of a pencil in glue and dot glue randomly onto half of the round glass ornament. (To keep ornament steady, drape a small cloth over a small-mouthed glass, then nestle the ornament in the mouth of the glass.)

2. Sprinkle glitter onto glue. Let dry.

3. Use a paint marker pen to create random swishes and swirls as shown.

4. Repeat steps on opposite half of the ornament.

    Got A Headache?

    Do you sit at a computer for extended periods? Do you get migraine headaches, tension headaches or neck pain? Can computers be the cause of your headaches?

    Without a doubt the computer has revolutionized our lives. The trouble is that we now seem to spend hours in front of it staring at the screen - and because we are concentrating on what we are doing, we stop paying attention to the little signals our body is sending us like aches in the neck, shoulders and back; dry eyes; difficulty in focusing on the screen properly and the beginnings of a headache.

    When a headache occurs? I use my glasses! I don't really wear my glasses full time... I only use it when my headache kills! Pop a pill is not my option! How about you? You might also be interested in checking out wyoming registered agent.
    Here are some helpful steps I found online:
    1.Start by taking regular breaks. By regular I mean every 20-30 minutes.

    2. You only have to stand up and look at something in the distance and this allows your eyes to re-focus and makes the eye muscles work.

    3. While you are up, stretch out your neck, drop your shoulders back to their normal position, get a drink of water and just allow yourself 30 seconds or so away from that screen.

    4. By the way, you might want to look at the position of the screen. It should be directly in front of you and your eyes should be level with the top edge of the monitor so that your head remains level at all times. Only your eyes should drop to look at the words on the screen.

    5. Also, if you are able, make sure that you are not facing the window as this tends to make you squint at the screen.

    6. Poor quality screens can cause you to stare at the screen more. If you can get yourself a flat-screen monitor your eyes will thank you.

    7. When we are staring at a computer screen we don't blink as often as normal. Squeeze you eyes together for a few seconds to help to relax you poor eye muscles and ensures your eyeballs stay moist and free from irritation.

    8. Make sure you have adequate lighting in your study / work area and eliminate computer screen glare.

    9. You might want to think about consulting your optometrist for an an eye test.

    A Trip to the ZOO

    Last weekend we went to the local Zoo. Going to the Zoo is one of our ways to spend quality time with the family. We've been to the Zoo since Akesha was a 3 month old baby. We were glad that during that day the weather was fine. Akesha had a blast seeing the animals. She also enjoyed taking pictures of them.

    Other photos are be posted on "The Dias Spot" blog. Thanks for viewing!
