A Makeshift Playhouse

I’ve been contemplating on buying a playhouse for my girls for months now.  I know they’d really enjoy it but on the other hand, I’m thinking it won’t last long as they’d be taller in a couple of years and won’t fit inside.  Then that’s 30,000Php down the drain!

I then realized I had a closet we could convert into a playhouse.  This way, even if they grow a bit taller, they’d still fit inside.  Then if they grow out of the playhouse phase, I can turn it back into a real closet.


First problem: Relocate all the stuff in the closet.  This made me clean up my own closet to make space.  At least it did me good 🙂

Then I got materials:

Wallpaper-P100+ per roll at ACE hardware

Drapes-P60/yard at Fabric Warehouse (total 2 yards)

Window Sticker-P90/sheet at Adworks Grafx on Escriva Drive.

This is one of the Little Tikes Playhouses I wanted to get.


I was able to remove all the stuff inside the closet and started putting wallpaper.
Ready for the big reveal? 🙂 This is the door of the playhouse.


Here's how it looks inside. A simple playhouse is good enough for us.
Closer look at the left side.
And the right side
This simple task put big smiling faces on the girls! Priceless!


So there you have it, our little project.  It serves as a playhouse for the girls and their dolls.  I just put their dresser, cooking set, kitchen set, and other toys inside.

Maybe you could also try doing your own playhouse 🙂



Time to take on the Challenge

So today, I’m taking on the challenge of losing all the pre-pregnancy weight.  Like most young moms, this is one of the number 1 issues.  I’ve been saying this for more than a year now…but this time, I’m hoping it will happen!  They say it takes you 9 months to get big, so it’ll take 9 months to get back in shape.  Unfortunately, this didn’t hold true for me :-/

First, I plan to remove rice from my diet.

This coming week, I won't eat anything but sandwiches. I sure hope I lose some pounds!

Subway has daily sub meals for only P99 and even has a P69 sandwich for the season.

Another thing I’ll start doing is to attend Bikram Yoga regularly, at least 4x/week which eventually should lead to 6-7x/week (Oh, so help me God!).

I’ll be posting updates on a weekly basis.

I wonder how long it’ll take to shed 15-20lbs…Wish me Luck!!!
