Chromaharp Instrument

The chromaharp at musician's friend that I saw while searching was something that I haven't seen yet and know nothing about. But it is very interesting as it is an excellent instrument for learning especially with teenagers interested in this zither instrument which has 37 strings instead of the conventional 36.

On another note, I am very glad that our girls are interested in music. As they have their vacation bible school they are also in a children's choir. Our youngest even at 3 is saying she wants to play the guitar. So I am thinking this chromaharp would be a good instrument for them to learn if there is a chance too aside from guitar, piano, or violin.

Vacation Bible School 2013

Yesterday the Vacation Bible School in our church started. The main focus of this year's VBS is about hospitality according to the bible and also showcasing different hospitality culture of different countries. One country that the church is showcasing is Philippines. The 3 to 5 years old will be in the Philippines classroom and they did really good decorating it with something about the country. 

Both our girls are very excited going to VBS. This is also the first classroom setting for our 3-year-old and she is just a chatterbox after the session yesterday. The class started at 7pm but at 6pm they go to church for snacks and then learning some songs. It will end on Friday and I am hoping our girls will learn a lot from this year's vacation bible school.

Quinceneara Dresses

A quinceanera is an important milestone in a young girl's life. It marks a girl's 15th birthday, and it's a Latin American tradition that is celebrated in various forms across the globe. One of the most traditional aspects of the ceremony involves an elaborate and voluminous dress plus the festivities one shares with her friends and family, including a father-daughter dance. 

Shopping for a quinceanera dress is a lot like finding the perfect prom or even wedding dress. It's your day and you want a gown that's going to make you feel like you're on top of the world. It should be a dress that is traditional, yet still representative of your personality and interests. The last thing you want is to be zipped into a dress you loathe, only to pretend you're happy for the rest of the evening. 

Dress shopping can certainly be beneficial to do in person considering that you get a chance to try things on, however, you'll likely not find anything too rare or special in a boutique. If you're after something special and specific, online stores are the best way to go. You may just even be able to snag a designer piece for a fraction of what you'd get retail. 

For starters, try to shop quinceanera dresses at This website features a bevy of designers and gowns for just about any aesthetic. If the dress you ordered doesn't fit, you can always send it back for an exchange, and you can also have it altered to achieve the perfect fit.

Antivirus to Protect Your Computer

We surely do not know when those virus can attack our computer system. This is why is very important to have a reliable antivirus to protect our computers. Recently while I was doing work online, my computer got infected and I thought my husband has to reformat it, bug luckily it was recovered. There are antivirus you can choose from and pick the one that is proven and tested to really detect those nasty virus right away. I heard about avira antivirus software as a good and easy to use antivirus. Now that I've experienced having my computer infected with malwares and virus, I made sure our computer is protected and I don't take any chances.

Disney Backpack for Back-to-School

I bet most of you who have kids going back to school are already done back to school shopping. I already started for our incoming first grader. Hopefully this week I will be able to finish it although the first day of school is still on September 4th. Yesterday, we went to the mall and at the Disney store. They really have a good deal on backpacks. A $12 for backpack and $8 for lunch tote is not bad of a deal at all. So I got our 1st grader the Arielle set.

They have different styles of course but our daughter like this one. The backpack is perfect for her size. Although I am bothered with the sequins and glitters but I can rotate this with her old backpacks to prevent the fast wear and tear. Our little girl is now so excited to go back to school she keep asking.

Maintaining and Caring for Your Lawn

We have a nice space in our backyard and now that it's summer we water it every other day. But honestly it is really hard to maintain a lawn and making the grass looking so green and healthy. It is our homeowners association to maintain a clean backyard and if your lawn grasses are dead or not maintaining it you have to be fined. So some of the homeowners contacted lawn management services to maintain and care for their lawns, especially those that are busy and not always in their house. 

One landscape management that I hear and has good reputation is Procare landscape management. They do landscaping, lawn care and maintenance. The company is located in the greater Grand Rapids, MI area and offers a year-round services. They even do snow removal and ice management equipment. Other core services they do is irrigation and tree removal services. I read many testimonials that they really do a great job. 

I am looking of the same services here in our area if our backyard will not return to its healthy condition. The weather is always hot with temperatures in the high 70s. Definitely its making the grass brown. Professional help is needed as I don't really have idea or capacity to take out the old grass and place a new one. I hope I will be able to find something like Procare, that would be great.
