Hello 2011!


2010 went by so fast!
Since the holiday break started, Aria has been waiting for snow!


And we had so much snow on Sunday!


We still have a big pile in the back yard, almost as high as Aria.


After the blizzard, I preferred to watch the beauty of snow from my window:)


Blizzard conditions have left Long Island yesterday afternoon leaving behind up about 20 inches of snow.The Long Island Rail Road was shut down, Airlines canceled hundreds of flights, and I've just read this, 61 motor vehicle accidents in Nassau(West side of Long Island) and 120 crashes in Suffolk(east side).

We will be home at New Year's Eve and enjoy with a glass of champagne at midnight to welcome in the New Year..Let's turn a new page in our lives :)

Cheers! And..Happy New Year!

Upcoming CSN Stores Review

Since I received a 20" Hyper Metro BMX Bike for my son from CSN Stores, I turned into an CSN addict. Before buying anything, I check out their site first. We needed a small shed and we bought an Arrow Sentry Shed from CSN Stores one month ago. It's very helpful and just like we wanted. My husband and I are very happy with our purchase. I'll be doing another review for CSN Stores. There are some great things that they have on their sites and I'll be checking out modern dining furniture, fitness equipment, or even cute cookware for upcoming CSN Stores Review! I can spend rest of the day just looking at their site:)

Hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season.

Do we look like the folks in Grey's Anatomy?

When I was a kid, whenever people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would say 'I want to be a doctor'. I don't know what kind of doctor I would be if I was, but one thing is certain..My son is not going to be a doctor! He can't even stand to see his own blood.

-Mommy! I'm bleeding!!!(In a panic)
If you see him the first time, you probably think that he is bleeding to death. Ha! Just a little scar, not even worth to put a bandaid on, lol.
Yesterday, he surprised me. I'm shocked. When I saw his loose tooth was ready to go with the tooth fairy. I told him;
-You know what, if you hold it tight and shake it like it's dancing, it would come out easily..Do you wanna try? (I was kidding)
-Oh, no!
-OK, I knew, you're not gonna like the idea. It would be something to remember forever..dancing tooth..dancing tooth.. I believe that would be something you would tell your kids when you become a father, how you pulled out your own tooth yourself. Wouldn't it be?
" Skake, shake..wiggle, wiggle my loose tooth"
-Mmmm..So..you're saying..(he ran into the bathroom, grabbed a cotton and got back to the hallway mirror)
-Dancing tooth..dancing tooth..(he started to sing)
Yep, dancing tooth left us last night and he got 3 dollars from the tooth fairy:)
-I don't believe, I did it myself. It didn't even bleed that much.
He was still in the same mood this morning. He put on a bandanna like a surgery hat and folded another one for me like a nursing scrub hat and said;
-Mom, look at us, we're like the folks on Grey's Anatomy which he used to hate when I watched that show sometimes. He checked himself in the mirror and started to..... dance???

I still don't think he is gonna be a doctor or have a medical job when I saw him looking for a pair of blue jeans and Micheal Jackson printed top instead of some uniforms or scrub clothing to complete his look. But he got used to seeing blood for sure yesterday and now he is brave enough pulling out his own tooth if it involves music and dancing :)

Early Morning Accident

I was enjoying having my coffee sitting on the couch and watching my son playing with his lightsaber yesterday...Until he accidentally hit my coffee cup and coffee was spilled on the rug.

Lol. I hate stains!! I have a lightweight deep cleaner so why would I worry about, right? Wrong! Because I ran out of cleanser. Ugh!

Enjoy turned into pain:( I grabbed a pack of baby wipes and started to work on removing the stain. Baby wipes always work. Baking soda and vinegar/salt or dish liquid are commonly well known stain removers and when I searched yesterday, I found out that beer is the another solution for stains. Do you know that? It literally lifts it out by pouring a bit of beer right on top and rubbing the beer lightly into the material. Probably this process needs to be repeated a couple of times to remove all traces of the stain. Honestly, I never thought to use beer as a stain remover before. Will keep in mind for next time:)

That pic does not belong to me. I was busy to looking for cleanser. I can't remember when I used up the last bottle of it.

I remember I used ice cubes to remove chewing gum from carpet once and it worked well. Wine, blood, grass stains and pet stains..I had a dog for 14 years and I know how hard to remove pet stains from carpet or rug. Removing the stain is harder if it is old and sets in. I think among the hardest stains to remove in rugs and carpets are the mildews and the molds. They don't grow overnight though.

If your carpet is new it's easier but 'do it yourself carpet cleaner' is not good enough if the carpet is old and there are old stains on it, professional cleaning is the best choice then. At least once every six months. Even though there is no stain, over the years, carpet is going to absorb odors. Every time someone takes a step, they will be pushed into the air and dusty smell all over the house... Pet stains make it worse.

A Few Pics Before and After Thanksgiving

I love this time of year in the NYC.


We had a late lunch at Sbarro. Aria didn't even finish his lunch after he saw Elmo was standing in front of Sbarro with a Christmas Sock! :)
Lol. It was a long walk for him..Ha! He found something familiar:)
Spider Man had a day off and they got Aria to cover him for that day:)
He was not the only one who took a day off everything:))
Times Square was beautiful in the evening..
Aria was crafty last week..His hand made Thanksgiving napkin rings...
They are ready for next year:)

It was 50-55 degrees in Long Island on Thanksgiving week. We enjoyed taking a walk, watching beauty of fall outside and taking some pics..
Yep..We're ready to snow now!
Let it snow!!!
