It's Our 7th wedding anniversary

Yipeee today is our 7th wedding anniversary. Hubby asked me what we are going to do. Well, I told him I like to visit the Detroit Arts and museum, then to a church, then eat somewhere. No gifts, I have plenty last Christmas. What I like is to spend time with my hubby today. ^_^ Pink rose has a significant meaning to our love affair. Early 90's I was working then. I came to the point in which I like to meet a person, be my boyfriend and maybe become my husband. But unfortunately none came (errr I mean many courted but don't just like them, lol not my typo ^_^) That time I was in my mid 20's somehow there are pressures from every point of view ^_^. But I have my principle in life that I would never marry a man for the sake of getting married. I am certain and I am sure that God has a man for me and that I have to wait. I found these novena to St. Joseph, and in my novena I asked St. Joseph intercession to find a man for me. I asked him to tell Jesus ASAP that …

Sky Watch

So nice to see the sunset today. It's been awhile that our sky is gloomy.
                                          I love the golden glow on this one a midst the dark surrounding

                                   Took a little bit closer. And saw a little bit darker glow.

                      To all my blog friends have a HAPPY and PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!!

The Twelve days of Christmas

You're all familiar with the Christmas song, "The Twelve Days of Christmas" I think. To most it's a delightful nonsense rhyme set to music. But it had a quite serious purpose when it was written. It is a good deal more than just a repetitious melody with pretty phrases and a list of strange gifts.
Catholics in England during the period 1558 to 1829, when Parliament finally emancipated Catholics in England, were prohibited from ANY practice of their faith by law - private OR public. It was a crime to BE a Catholic.
"The Twelve Days of Christmas" was written in England as one of the "catechism songs" to help young Catholics learn the tenets of their faith - a memory aid, when to be caught with anything in *writing* indicating adherence to the Catholic faith could not only get you imprisoned, it could get you hanged, or shortened by a head - or hanged, drawn and quartered, a rather peculiar and ghastly punishment I'm not aware was ever practiced…

Love The Shake?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Slim-Fast for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. I am not happy to tell the world that I gain a little bit of pounds these past few days. Since the holiday season started the party never stopped. Every weekend there is at least two or three party invitation. I set myself to go to only one because that is only what I can take. If I go to all the parties every weekend then I would weight 160 pounds and that is a lot! I have been to yo-yo diet, pill diet and exercise a lot. Unfortunately, I never lose weight in any of this strategy. I tried to do vegetable dieting, gush, I cannot take it, and I feel dizzy at the middle of the day I ended up eating a lot in the afternoon. I tried walking but I feel lonely I am the only one person walking the street. It feels very depressing when you like to lose those unwanted pounds and you cannot lose even one pound.  I found Slim-Fast the best of all the best. You see that in Slim-Fast  you do n…
The blessing of a Christmas manger or nativity scene may take place on the Vigil of Christmas or at another suitable time.
When the manger is set up in the home, it may be  blessed by a parent or another family member. The blessing (which is taken from the Catholic Household Blessings & Prayers) includes a brief prayer, a biblical reading, and a closing prayer.

As we all know the south part of the Philippines was hit by a calamity. Two cities were directly hit and one of my close friend died. In my city they also have their share of flood. Thankfully, according to my cousin the city council had constructed this diverse river (started few years ago) because if it was not the city would also have a disaster on their own. Here is the contrast of what happened last December 17, 2011.

                                       This is the water that you can see in an ordinary day like this. Kids will swim here, some women will do their laundry here too.

                              Here is how fast and deep and muddy the water was last December 17.

Balls and Candy Cane

Our first ornament seven years ago.

                    I need to buy this water holder. I found this helpful for my plants. I bought this in Dollar Store for $1. Going to go back there and look if they still have these.

                                        Do you like Candy Cane? Hmmm a little red or blue?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of LG DoublePlay™ for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Christmas is getting closer and closer and I have not shop yet. Hubby asked me this morning what I would love to get from Santa I told him it would be a phone and some camera lenses. He had this impish smile and I know what is that mean. I know that he had something and I asked him what was he smiling about he told me he got me a phone! I was jumping up and down and hubby knew I love the phone he got me it is the new LG DoublePlay™ from T-MOBILE exclusively! I told hubby I could not wait to use the phone until next week so he gave it to me and I found out good features from LG DoublePlay™ phone. -  It comes with a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recorder. How cool is that! For a phone to have this mega pixel camera and LED is awesome! -  This phone also offers multiple messaging options, including Cloud Text and Group Text. This I find very appropriate t…

Carve Four New Faces

If you could carve for more faces into the side of Mt. Rushmore, whose faces would they be? Why do you believe your choices deserve such a place of honor?

I do like this question. My answer to this is my mother and father's face and ME!! They deserve to be honor because they choose to gave me life. It's so scary to think IF my mother aborted me. The good part is that in those time that I was conceived women were not brain wash or told to abort babies. I don't know if that time there is already a contraceptive pills. But what I knew is that my parents are excited to have me their first baby. What about you guys whose face do you like to be carve in Mt. Rushmore?

Sky Watch Friday

When I saw this sky last week I find it pretty. I like the color though.

You must not blame me if I do talk to the clouds.  ~Henry David Thoreau
The sun came out and the color of the sky change!

Christmas Shopping Deadlines 2011

Are you feeling the hustle and bustle of preparing the holiday season?  I do! It got me to the point that I am stress out because of running around like crazy. I am always beating the traffic and all the holiday shoppers who are also in a rush trying to finish their things done.  Yesterday, hubby and went shopping again at Best Buy and used our Best Buy Coupons and I bought him a 27 inches computer monitor. For me I was tempted to buy a new phone but I can wait.  I am looking for a good deal online and found a website not to be miss out this season. When we got home hubby’s daughter dropped by to visit us and we talked about holiday shopping and beating the traffic, discounted sales and of course the shoppers. She told me to check also the Shipping Deadlines for Christmas 2011 because that is what her hubby did when he bought her a new Nikon dslr. This morning I check the website and look for a new lens and thankfully, I found one that is a bit cheap, cheaper th…

My Pearls

Last Saturday, hubby and I were invited to a party. In an event like wedding or formal party I always wear my treasured pearls. I bought them in the Philippines from a jeweler who happened to be a distant relative. The pearls on this one is huge that is why I don't used it in daily basis or even going to church because it just HUGE! And it will of course catch any attention. The gold is 22k and the white stones are diamonds. Take a look!

To buy or not to buy

Hubby and I were shopping and window shopping yesterday. We were also sending packages to some friends from out of town and Christmas cards to especial people. At Fedex, we found that to send a small box will be worth $200++ so hubby and I decided to just send it in a the big balikbayan box. After doing it we went shopping for some of my stuff and his stuff then we ended up at the big store for electronics. As I have said it here when the flat screen came out and people are crazy buying it I told hubby we are not going to buy those because after a while many new model will come out and I was right. Now plasma are cheap and lcd and then I found out there is a new one LED LCD what ever it is, when I compare the LED LCD to LCD and  plasma you could see the difference. And besides they already have 60 inches and 70 inches. I said to hubby this is what I want now. By the way it is want not need, lol! So I might stretch the days and months waiting for another model or kind of tv, lol. To c…
