Whatta Wonderful Week! #1

firstly, i would like to apologize for the delay in my posting for this blog hop, i should’ve posted this last monday, but childminding, amongst other things, got in the way..so without further ado, this is my entry to the very first whatta wonderful week blog meme! hosted by our very own, pinay mommy blogger, mommy trish.

last week, i finished two paid to post articles, which is now posted here and the one for bv posted here. i did metion that one of my 2011 resolution is to earn through blogging, so hopefully, slowly but surely i’ll be able to accomplish just that:)

i also went to the eye doctor last saturday; i was playing around with my son friday night when i felt something caught in my right eye, which instantly hurt my eye and made it watery. upon inspection, my bro, ken and sis, cel, found this little wood splinter or insect lodged in my eye (in between the eye balls and that pink soft part). my fears kicked into overdrive with my mind quickly reasoning “you can still do your childminding duties with one eye!). but just so i can stop fuzzing and worrying, i went to an eye doctor the next day to have it examined and, blessed be, it turned out to be a mole that i just wasn’t able to discover before now. weird, right?

on sunday, jared and i (with my sis, cel, in tow) went to the grand baby company fair and met jared’s ultimate favorite, pocoyo! apart from that we also managed to score some good buys and fantabulous freebies. (i will make a separate post about it!)

 

 here’s how we play this meme, straight from mommy trish’s post:
