Horrible Feeling

An hour ago i was freaking out i thought it's the end of the world.. kidding aside but seriously we had a severe thunderstorms in our area and not just the typical storms that we used to have. This time the the local sirens keep on and on it is really annoying and it only means that possible tornado touchdown is coming our way. Yikes! am freaking out, every electronic stuff in the house i made sure was off i was in the middle of conversation in FB when i heard a loud noise outside! TORNADO warning it is! Called the husband asked him to come home and stay in awhile until everything is cleared up! Was preparing our stuff just in case something happen u know! I really hate this kind of situation i hate when heavy rains and wet days! Grrrrr. Glad the storms passed by and cleared up the sky already. Now i can breath!!!

In the mailbox

Just received a bunch of mails the other day. Most of them are from subscriptions I acquired a long time ago already. I canceled some of those but I guess I'm still in their mailing lists. Sometimes it's not funny when you have plenty of mails and you realized most of them are unnecessary and ends up in the trash. But I'm keeping some too, like recipes, health & wellness because who knows I'll need them someday. OK got to go for now will get ready before the husband arrive. Good afternoon you all!

Goodies arrived

I finally got my goodies yesterday, a family friend took a vacation in Philippines and we had a deal that she gonna take some goodies from family to bring with her back shes from Minnesota so i said will just send her a shipping fee for the box. So anyway i have much anticipation about the goodies because it is really my request..haha! And was delighted also because she enclosed some Filipino delicacies like ginamus and tablea been longing it for quite sometimes now. I thank her for the goodies.

Don't frown

"Or else you'll have those forehead wrinkles." A friend would often tell that to me. She knows I'm kinda temperamental and she's right lol! But that was before, my teenage years I guess. I'm so quick to react and often gets irritated. The moment I got married and moved to another country, I learned to control my emotions or else I'll go gaga. LOL! Seriously, it goes with age and maturity. Problems are rampant and normal nowadays. We can't control it but of course with the help of our God, we'll make it through. So stay happy and at peace, so not to have those wrinkles soon. Winks!

Skywatch Friday


The week has ended once again but take goodness it's Friday! Another week of Skywatch and here is my entry. This was taken when heading up to Memphis last weekend, the sunset was so bright pretty looking thing so hastily took a shot!

While cooking earlier

I was also browsing for best sleep aids because I'm getting insomniac since our short trip last weekend. I'm quite sure I kept some in the drawer but can't find it now. Anyway, guess it's time to buy a bottle again along with other herbal supplements. Gonna be sending a box anytime soon to the Philippines. Just that I don't wanna be dependent to pills and since it's not that serious, might as well just drink a glass of warm milk later on before going to bed. Should try that, hope it works.

Memphis Escapade

Downtown square
The PyramidDowntown Memphis

We spent our weekend in Memphis Tennessee to celebrating our 5th wed anniversary. We had a blast bad and! Bad because we got lost a lil bit and made few detours here and there but was ok we made it to our destinations. Good because we've seen several tourist spots up there, the Graceland of Elvis Presley's hometown, the pink palace museum and the pyramid! To make the trip even better we stopped to eat in one of the famous BBQ in the country and i tell you we're all stuffed to the fullest.. I probably gained 5lbs on that weekend getaway alone! yikes!

Almost spring

I guess. Because I saw some Easter related stuff in the mall the other day. You know when it's Easter people are out and celebrating, giving gifts like easter basket alternatives and sweet treats. For me though it means spring is in the air lol! Anyway, I'm looking forward to spring because I wanna start running, it's my goal and the husband too. Plus am thinking of learning how to drive, it's about time. That sounds really nice, activities that are fun except during super cold days. How bout you? Had enough of winter too?

no to Wrinkles

Let's face it, everyday passes by and we're not getting any younger. Although there are those whose blessed with nice genes and still looked young compare to their age. I'd like to think am one of them, lol! Think I got it from my mama. She looks a lot younger than her age, we are often mistaken as sisters. But aging of course is a part of life, we'll all have wrinkles sooner or later. No prob though because the best wrinkle cream are available nowadays. It's what you call aged gracefully. Still looking good in counting the years. Right!

So far my progress

Can you tell the difference? I hope yes, haha! Anyway that was me on left when i realized am quite big in the picture and i hate it that was taken last September on our trip to Philippines for my brother's wedding. When i saw my picture i said i need to double time my diet plan and stuff so in November last year i was so determined and did the necessary thing to lose my extra weight until now am doing it and that's me on the right right now am happy for my progress but am way to go to my weight goal. Getting there!!! wink!

Can't believe!

By the end of last year I was like 'gosh I'm so big!' I tend to avoid the mirror because I freak myself out lol! Kidding aside, I knew I needed to do something and so I started my diet. Thankfully, I made it. Can't believe from size 10 now am back to size 6! Have to work out for my belly though. Let me check out these ways to lose belly fat. We all know it's the most challenging part but nothing's impossible to someone whose determined. Way to go!

Love Coupons

I never thought I can possibly be a coupon lady until I lived here in the States. I mean, when I go to malls and shops, I love it when they give out freebies and coupons which can be of big help on your next shopping. So I started to collect and sometimes even search for it in the net. What I have are usually for foodies and grocery items. Some are beauty products and of course my favorite, shoes! But while browsing I bumped into a very cool travel deal courtesy of hotel coupons. They also have car rental, cruises, flights, vacation packages and more. I wonder if those offers are available in our area because sometimes it depends on ones location. If so, then I should grab a coupon sometime soon, lol! Visit their links too if you want some also. Winks!

Angry Mind, Weak Heart

“Men prone to angry tantrums or sulky hostility are more likely to develop an irregular heart rhythm called atrial fibrillation,” reports the Daily News of New York. Researchers found that men who say they are hotheaded or quick-tempered or who lash out at others when frustrated or become furious when criticized are 30 percent more likely to develop an irregular heart rhythm. The director of the study, says: “There has been a perception that you can dissipate the negative health effects of anger by letting it out instead of bottling it up. . . . But that is definitely not the case in the men in this study—they were at higher risk not only of atrial fibrillation, but of death from all causes.”

The above words are so true don't you agree? People who are temperamental are more prone to illness and stress. It can also negatively affect those around them, even their loved ones. I must admit that sometimes I get so pissed off, and sometimes I don't even know the cause of it. But I don't wanna have a weak heart nor be a cause of someone's stress. So no matter how bad things seem to be and the going gets tough, we should all keep a positive attitude all the time. Often times, what we thought to be a bad thing, actually is all in the mind. As the saying goes, 'Life throws us lemons, it's up to us if we make a sour face or make lemonades.'

Good morning!

Love bags!

Are you such a purse fan? Do you drool when you see one which is your type? I do! I didn't notice it but actually I'm kinda becoming a collector nowadays, haha! But I don't go for necessarily expensive purses. As long as it's pretty and has good quality. I don't just go for girly stuff too. I really like those huge rugged-looking ones as well. I'd like it when it's unique, funky, and versatile. Speaking of I saw some messenger bags while browsing minutes ago. A messenger bag as we know is very versatile. It can carry a lot of stuff because it's sturdy. A bag like this triples as a workday commuter, overnight attache, or large market sack. There's a red one that looks really nice. Looks perfect for our coming trip this weekend.

I'd like to, but not yet for now though. LOL! Still have lots of other priorities and I gotta seriously save. But who knows, might find some bargains at the Rickshaw website.

Gotta see ya round folks!

weekend at Memphis

Yeah I know it's only Monday but can't help but smile when I think of our coming trip to Memphis this weekend. The husband would often tell me I'm so exaggerated. He's right! There's nothing wrong expressing your emotions and am so good with that. Anyway, I hate being spontaneous so I'm kinda like making a list on things to bring and things to do while we are there. Let's focus on the 'things to do'... LOL!

A. Since Memphis is the barbecue capital of the world, we should visit at least one of the famous restaurants in the place. I heard the Bar-B-Q Shop has the finest-tasting barbecue and that their dancing pig sauce is irresistible, making it award winner. Oh well, I gotta taste it!

B. It's been a dream to see the Mississippi river. You know, that's where Huckleberry Finn and his friend Tom Sawyer had their adventures of a lifetime. I was a fan of that cartoon show in my younger years so it'll be like a nostalgic moment for me, lol! Seriously, hope we can try one of those river cruise or at least visit Tom Lee Park, they say it's a nice place to view the river. Winks!

C. Of course, the kids should enjoy this trip too. The Memphis Zoo is a great place to see Pandas and other animal galore. I'm also thinking of Graceland, the famous home of Elvis Presley. Not a fan though, just want to take a picture of the his house, lol!

Well, the list goes on! I dunno which ones we can accomplish. But what matters is that this will be another bonding of the family. I hope things will work out well with regards to our anniversary getaway.

For cousin shorty

Am tempted to get this cameras for my cousin i know how much she wanting one for quite sometimes now. She supposed to get one before our Philippine trip is just that we can not find a good deal for a piece of nice and cute digi cam then until now i bumped to an online store that has wide selection of clearances from sony cameras, cannon, samsung, fuji and more! It's comparable prices from other stores around. Am so tempted right now because it' is not affordable but as well has good reviews. I will ask her about it and see what she think! Wink!

Friday, February 11, 2011



Yay isn't she pretty? She is! I fell in love instantly with this bootie the moment I saw it. So right away I clicked the add to cart button and you're mine! Seriously, I'm giving that pair of shoes to my mother. She's a certified fashionista like me too. I know she'll love it because it's so comfortable to wear and not to mention gorgeous. So mom just wait and am sending this to Pinas soon, lol!

Good morning everyone!

Anniversary getaway!

Several days from now, me and hubby will celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. Time flies by so fast indeed. As if only yesterday when we said "I do's" and made a promise to be together forever. For this year, we are spending this special moment at Memphis. Of course, I'm the one whose super excited! Will about to taste the most delicious barbecue in the world again lol! Also we're looking forward to visit Graceland, the famous home of the former music legend Mr. Elvis Presley. To top it all, it's a great way for our family to bond, relax, and just enjoy our moments together. The kids are a lot more manageable these days too, Speaking of, I'm thinking of packing as early as today. I might get some boys clothes for Josh and sweaters for the little girl.

Well I'm pretty much sure the Tea Collection website has some great offers. Their vest, tees, outerwear, accessories and a lot of other stuff are so cute, unique, and funky. I hope they're having a sale now, let's see if I can get something. Or maybe, I'll do my shopping at Memphis then. That sounds like a good idea, winks!

Mellow Yellow Monday #107



Ain't this pretty? It's a cookie that my cousin sent me along with the rest of the goodies. I honestly didn't touch nor eat this cutie Yellow butterfly sugar cookie from Goldilocks, didn't even let my kiddos see this because you know what will going to happen next, lol. I think am gonna keep this as long as it goes bad... because it is really cute looking thing for my opinion...;-)!

man's best friend

No other than dogs. They're adorable, cute and cuddly. Ever loyal and happy all the time. I love to have one but I guess not now, while the kids are still young. Just that I miss having a pet. I grew up having dogs and cats and it was indeed fun. Anyway, just browsing here, looking at this cute pet products. Simple and fancy dog beds, blankets and throws. Accessories like clothes, shoes, and even toys. It's really cool! Hey by the way, if you have pets and looking for these stuff, there's so much available at Frontgate and it isn't that expensive. Just check out their link. winks

Just browsing

For some stuff here, including some headgear. Why? Out of curiosity I guess lol! Seriously, I'm starting on a new blog now. Still thinking on how to develop it and all that but I already have a theme and working on it. Will let you meet my new baby soon and I hope you'll like her too. I'm inspired to begin a new one because I want a fresh start in blogging. Hope I can make the most out of it and offer my visitors something new. Anyway, just browsing here looking for a nice template. Have a wonderful week ahead everyone. Stay happy!

smart BF

Found this cool email at my inbox this morn.. One of those worth sharing ones I guess.. lol! Enjoy everyone! Mwaahugsss!

This is a love letter from a boy to a girl….

However, the girl’s father does not like him and want them to stop their
relationship…… and so.. The boy wrote this letter to the girl..
he knows that the girl’s father will definitely read this letter..

1. The great love that I have for you
2. is gone, and I find my dislike for you
3. grows every day. When I see you,
4. I do not even like your face
5. the one thing that I want to do is to
6. look at other girls. I never wanted to
7. marry you. Our last conversation
8. was very boring and has not
9. made me look forward to seeing you again.
10. You think only of yourself.
11. If we were married, I know that I would find
12 life very difficult, and I would have no
13. pleasure in living with you. I have a heart
14. to give, but it is not something that
15. I want to give to you. No one is more
16. foolish and selfish than you, and you are not
17. able to care for me and help me.
18. I sincerely want you to understand that
19. I speak the truth. You will do me a favor
20. if you think this is the end. Do not try
21. to answer this. Your letters are full of
22. things that do not interest me. You have no
23. true love for me. Good-bye! Believe me,
24. I do not care for you. Please do not think that
25. I am still your boyfriend.”

So bad!!

However, before handing over the letter to the girl, the boy told the girl to “READ BETWEEN THE LINES “, meaning-only to read 1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15,17,19,21,23,25 (Odd lines) go read it once again but the Odd Number lines..

Just a note

Perhaps tomorrow I'll do some general cleaning here at the house. The kids room in particular. Their toys are all over the place lately, geeezzz! Anyway it's almost weekend again and to end our week, let me share a nice note to all my friends here. Hope you like it. :)


Sometimes I feel I am a paper
being used for origami,
folded and creased,
unfolded and flipped,
until I can't handle anymore
or I will tear.
And that is when,
with one final tug,
I go from plain paper
to swan,
a beautiful one.

You nuts!

Yes, you nuts.. which is the most yummy and flavorful among you all? Silly question. It's because my mama back home is asking for nuts this time. She said they're having enough of chocolates and sweets, that my sister is the only one who doesn't get sick of munching it, lol! So for a change they want an alternative I guess. I love nuts but not my favorite though so it's kinda hard for me to pick some for them. Am thinking of pistachio, cashew, or pecans. Really delicious indeed. How about macadamia or almonds? Talking about this matter isn't fun at all. It completely ruins my diet.. haha! Anyway, perhaps I can just grab a bag with a variety of nuts in it... is there such a thing? Guess so.

Good day everyone! By the way your opinions are very much appreciated. :)
