The Tao of Zombie Chicken Award:”The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken - excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all…"

And when I thought I got my dose of “recognition” for the week, she again awarded me with the Queen of All Things- AWE-SUMM award!

My day’s just getting better…maybe I should go get some lottery tickets (lol)!
This week is just super hectic with all the mommy-responsibilities, so it’ll take a few days to pass the awards along:

So please check-out these fabulous fellow bloggers who were super-nice enough to read my daily ramblings (ha!) . I love that they share their thoughts, too. So pay them a visit!

But wait, getting the award comes with responsibilities:
And now for the rules of the Queen Of All Things – AWE-SUMM award:

List 7 things that make you Awe-Summ and then pass the award on to 7 bloggers you love.

Make sure to tag your recipients and let them know they have won!

Also link back to the Queen that tagged you.

7 reasons I am AWE-SUMMM

1. I am crazy about my honey. His family’s crazy about me and so do I. I have the best mother-in-law. (I don’t call her in-law)
2. I have four amazing Crumbcatchers who love art, music, performing and gymnastics among a few things. And the best of all –they love their mom! (Check-out their love-notes to me!) Although I'm 45, people think my kids and I are just sisters/brothers-sister. I still get carded (ha!)
3. I grew up in the Philippines and have wonderful parents and 5 brothers. I was never away from home until I traveled thousands of miles on my own to come to this wonderful country!
4. I’m a stay-at-home mom (who graduated Cum Laude with a degree of Bachelor of Arts in Psychology/Guidance and Counseling who worked in NYC for over 15 years as a Programmer/Systems Analyst/Manager).
5. I believe God has a plan for me and my family;
6. I tend to be OCD – especially in keeping the house in order.
7. I love to dance, sing and just be silly with the kids!

The Queen of All Awe-Summ Award goes to: (I think you’re totally awesome!)
1) Natasha of Creative Nachos
2) Michelle Ciaro-Hayes of mkc photography
3) Mirage Writer
4) to all the moms at theMotherhood
5) CpaPhil Vintage Postcards
6) Stacy’s Random Thoughts
7) Techy Mom's Blog

Hope you get so visit these wonderful bloggers.

Completed my first 16 Week IsaBody Challenge: Believe You Have A Purpose

My family is what matters most to me.  I’m 51 and a mother of 4 (ages 14 – 26). I wanted to be healthier, more active and stronger not just for me, but for the people I love.  I wanted to set an example for my family that we each possess the tools to master our wellness and vitality. I've always been petite except when I was pregnant ( when I gained an average of 50 pounds per pregnancy - 4 times!) Over the years I had tried various diet and exercise regimens, and I did enjoy a degree of success, but the results were not to the level I hoped for, and they were somewhat short lived.   Achieving stable, long-lasting results proved stubbornly elusive.    Then when I hit menopause everything became more difficult.    My body stopped cooperating altogether, and I was constantly grumpy. My waist and hips expanded and I found myself napping in the afternoons.    I started to accept the idea that there would be this new, less vibrant version of me. I just completed my P

SPICE-up a young child's development: social, physical, intellectual, creative and emotional

Children are the precious gems of a family. When they’re young and innocent, they are like sponges that willingly and quickly absorb any knowledge and emotion. That’s why at an early age, we encourage our children to read, be creative, be happy and feed their curiosity. With all the technology and instant gratification that children get from playing video or computer games, asking a child to read a good book has been a challenge for some parents .     “Your children are not your children.       They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.       They come through you but not from you,       And though they are with you, and yet they belong not to you.       You may give them your love but not your thoughts,        For they have their own thoughts.        You may house their bodies but not their souls,        For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,        which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.” -                     Kahlil Gibr

Immigration and Family: Will my mom ever get to see my daughter walk down the aisle

Last year when my father passed away in the Philippines, I went home and took some time to visit the U.S. Embassy in Manila to ask what the options are for my mother to return to the U.S. The consul reminded me of the 10-year travel ban. That on or after November 8, 2015 — not earlier – or 10 years after my mom, was deported in 2005 for overstaying her visa, I can email the U.S. Embassy and inquire about my mother’s approved petition. I asked if I need to file another petition, and she informed me I didn’t have to. I asked if I could… and she stopped me and said to ask everything on or after November 8, 2015. This is where I am, and where my thoughts are drifting as I celebrate this month my 16th American birthday. I am counting the months, the weeks and the days. My daughter is getting married in January 2016 and I would love to have my entire family, especially my mother, to be here when that momentous occasion happens.

Helping others surpass their goals and expectations

"It's not about the end goal. It's who you become by consistently pushing to the edge of your limits." - Robin Sharma Do you ever wonder why you stumble on new things?  Do you ever wonder why unsuspecting strangers cross your path? Do you ever wonder why your mind takes you to a direction you didn't think exist? I was walking to StarBucks to meet my husband when I noticed a sign...

Still shaky, skidded in snow, but so blessed my guardian angels are looking after me!

"Never again wonder, what to be thankful for..."   - Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life It’s yet another snowy day in New Jersey. Beautiful, yes but dangerous! In line with my goal for this month is to get back on schedule. I got up around 4am to get my 15yo ready for his Model United Nations conference. (Thankful that our neighbor offered to drive him to school by 5:30am ) I got my 9yo ready for school and I'm thankful that my other neighbor offered to drive him to school. I then drove my husband to the train station to Manhattan. I decided to stop by the Community Center and decided to run a fast 5K on the treadmill. I was 1 mile short because I was so sweaty and hot. (Note to self: dress lightly next time) While cooling down inside the car, I read Day 14’s chapter of Rick Warren's the “Purpose Driven Life” book. I felt really good because it just reminded me that there is always something to be thankful for no matter how awful yo
