About Me/Contact Info

My name is Cinella J. Reyes and I live in a small town named Donna, Texas. When people ask me where I live I say south Texas and then they say, "Oh, near San Antonio or Houston?" I giggle and say, "Oh, no. Way more south than that!" If you look at a map, we live at the very tip of Texas, about 15 minutes from the Mexico/US border. It's inbetween McAllen & Harlingen/Brownsville, Texas.

I'm 25 years old and wife to Santos for almost 6 years and mommy to two beauties, Yvette & Eliada. We currently live with my mother since my father past on from losing his battle with cancer in 2005. We miss him dearly. Both my husband and I do not have a steady income. I have been a mystery shopper for over five years and do other contract work and hubby quit his job of 5 years at EchoStar after his father past away this January. It has been a rough year for him. He now fixes computers every now and then, but mostly he is half the stay-at-home parent. He only takes care of Eliada, who's growing so fast. I still do all the chores, cooking and clothe diaper. He only uses sposies.

So, yeah, I cloth diaper! I have about 4 thirties covers and use prefolds with snappis or pins. I just bought my first two wetbags from WAHM. Thanks to them, I got a great deal!

I also am a greenie. I love to recycle (plastic, aluminum, cardboard) and I try to find homes for things I don't need by using Freecycle and reusing them in my own home.

I also write the environment articles for a local e-zine, Hidalgo Metro. I love that, but currently don't get any compensation because they are new and have no advertisers. But I got to go to the local baby expo for FREE! To see a list of past articles, Click Here.

Tuesdays I love to go through my blog-roll and search for great giveaways... and I blog about which ones are my favorite! You are welcome to enter them as well. I have won a good amount of items from this past year from The Eco Chic and News Around the Blogs. Wednesdays is when I post things I have learned from the past, new or old, friends or families, personal experience or others. If you'd like to share, please do! Thursdays is all about food. New recipes, new foods, pictures and some time soon, giveaways as well. Friday is when I review family items, anywhere from baby to adult to websites and services. This is open for future reviews. I will also post what other people think of new products. Saturday is a fun day and I will post any great deals I find from retail stores or online. If you see something worth mentioning, please let me know! Sundays.... is new for me, is Sundays in my city. I found it from blog hopping over at Mom Bloggers Club. Thanks!
