Just recently I learned that my sister in law is a big fan of this Lucky Brand jeans. I was surprised, almost all her jeans are Lucky Brand. This gives me an idea of what to get her this coming Christmas. I've been started to look online for gifts and I will put Lucky Brand at the top of my list.

Most of my friends already have their American passports which is more convenient to travel. I remember my last trip to the Philippines - 2007 I had to wait in a long line to get through and that kills me especially when you have babies with you. It is a big difference when you travel with an American passport. Anyway, I am hoping that the process will go smoothly.

We enrolled them in gymnastic and it seems that they are enjoying every bit of it. Their desire for gymnastics started when we visited our folks in Alabama when they attend classes while we are there. It is a good thing for our children. We introduced several activities that might interest them and help develop their ability. It is also a good way to inter act with different children to gain confidence. For my children it feels like a new door of life has opened so wide. I can see the excitement in their faces and their smiles hold no price that money can buy. I know how much they enjoy the experience of learning.

My girl was a week late starting school. Plus bills are waiting to be send and a hundred emails that were waiting, and a house that needs cleaning. This was my thoughts that played in my mind while I was in the car headed home.
The first thing we did right after we rest was to fill up the pantry and buying school supplies for my princess. Of course hubby couldn't wait to cook so we had grilled steak for supper. He is not tired when it comes to cooking for his family, which is one of his passions. I still have a lot of things to do and it will take a few days to get it done.

After we saw the family it seemed that the feeling of exhaustion came over us; the children's energy seemed twice as before, to the point that they even struggled to go to sleep. It feels like there' no tomorrow for them. We got chicken wings for dinner along with some salad for a quick meal since hubby was starving. I know how the family misses us, especially the kids.
We enjoyed talking and laughing till we all dropped. It was surely good to see them all after all this time.

Anyway, we got the plane on time and we arrived in Denver safely. We still have to wait for our last flight to Huntsville for 2 hours. This is a little bit exciting to me blogging from the Denver airport with their wifi free internet using our new bought netbook. It is a bit hard to type with this small keyboard and read with this cute screen but it is good enough to use for travel. We are exhausted and can't wait to get to our final destination. Have a Blessed weekend all.

Most of us love to shop with brand names clothing and accessories. She knows I'm crazy about clothes and shoes , they are one of my weaknesses . I still remember when I went to this website and looked at all the different brand names . I was fascinated that almost all the brand names of clothing was there and not to mention the Burton line of clothing also. Online shopping is very convenient. I've been doing this once in awhile and I love the stuff I get . I always shop online for gifts for my hubby and this is the best way to surprise him.

Some of them haven’t been to this place so they are excited. Like every get together we have a POT LUCK dinner, in that way none of us will not be cooking the whole day. Since I organize the gathering it seems that I have responsibility to make sure that we have all we need. Sometimes it ends up over bringing which usually happens. Anyhow, Hubby is done packing the stuff, he got it ready last night. I can tell he is more excited than me. :-) I made my famous pepper steak, cassava pie, pork fried adobo, and of course RICE, the staple food of Pilipino. Better not forget it. And also the sunscreen for protection otherwise my children skin will be turning to fisherman skin like in the Philippines which is healthy looking. Have a Blessed Weekend Everyone!

I should know that he is been driving most of his life and I should feel safe and comfortable but this wasn’t what I feel. I was terribly scared when he drives, it seems like he just started. I was driving around since he left so maybe I was used to be in control of the wheels and now he’s here, it is kind of new that somebody else is driving.

It was nice to see old friends. I was excited about thinking what to cook for them. I know they are not picky but a good meal that will impress them is what I was worried about. I started cooking about 1pm and hoping it will be finished by the time they arrive. Everything was set when she called and they were in our house in 20 minutes. Hubby was outside making sure that they were not lost; and there they are. We had a good time talking and eating. Too bad they couldn’t stay longer because they had to start driving home in two hours. But it was wonderful visit; I am hoping next time they can stay longer.

Anyhow, our 4th of July celebration was a blast, we have our own shows and the kids are having a ball. Hubby grilled hotdogs and hamburgers as we usually do on this event and later was the fireworks. My kids were having a great time popping those small fireworks and they were surprised by our grand finale, it was two giant sparklers that fizzled out. We don’t get the ones that shoot in the sky since our kids are not old enough, but to them it was awesome. I heard my little boy said to his daddy that next time he wants fireworks that will shoot in the sky with a lot of different colors. They can’t wait till next 4th of July.

It was midnight when he arrive safe and sound, thanks goodness. The kids woke up right then when they heard him and we didn't go to bed till morning. We are all tired but we still try to get up. We went to IHOP, our favorite place to go for breakfast. The children told a lot of stories to Daddy of things he missed when he’s away. We had a wonderful breakfast together. It will take a few days before they will get use to each other again. It was kind of new adjustment for the kids and my boy is a little bit shy. I know this will happen when a man of the house is gone a lot. Right now we are so happy knowing that my man is back in town and we are enjoying every bit of it.

Most of the movies are for the children and they usually watch before going to bed and of course have popcorn so it feels like in a real theater except that you have a comfortable spot. You just pause it if you want a trip to the bathroom and you will not miss a thing. My children love to watch VegeTales and they are very good in singing the Larry Boy song and once the video starts they cannot hear you unless you will scream or turn the volume down. That's how my kids are when watching movies, they are hypnotized and they next thing you know the popcorn is gone and the movie is still on.

Trade Show Booths are a perfect place to find banner stands she's been looking for ,this will help increase the exposure of her business. It comes in different shapes and sizes which she needs to get people's attention. We all know that many occasions we need table skirts that will help hide or cover the unattractive tables and also give a stunning look to any event. It would be so attractive to get a table cover that will match your theme.
For any indoor events, Pipe and Drape is the best thing to get and can be used in different activities to help divide the space or stage and it comes in a variety of colors that will blend perfectly depending on your choice. I am hoping that my friend will be ready and get everything she needs for her upcoming business. Good luck to you friend.

The idea of rearranging or swapping stuff in each room is to make a place look like new. Being creative will give you the satisfaction in what you have accomplished. This is one thing that I always love to do and hubby sometimes tease me saying that he is lost or, "am I in a different house"? I can enjoy and relax while sipping a cup of tea in an comfy place of my home after getting a look I want. Being creative is one of my thing.

It feels like he is living there forever even the fact that we talk 2 to 3 times a day plus emails, this doesn't adjust the fact that he is away from me and the kids. The time is getting closer and before I know it he will be home. I just pray for his safe trip back to the USA.

Sometimes I wonder why can't we just have one season like summer all year long so we don't need to packed for another season or buy outfits that sometimes we will out grown without noticing because of so many clothes in the closets. Some part of me also likes the way we have many exciting seasons of the year. The excitement of awaiting Christmas with snow, the fall with beautiful colors coming where some plants are turning colors and trying to go to sleep. It is interesting. Anyhow, I got a lot of winter boxes with clothes and I gave away some of them. We'll say bye bye heavy clothes for now and hello summer light clothes.

We are looking to send our kids for piano lessons this summer because I can see that they have a talent for music that needs to be developed. Sending them to music school will help find their ability to sing or play. I noticed that my girl had good rhythm even her teacher told me that. She just needs more practice, good timing and understanding and with the Free Sheet Music she can start playing slowly. Learning to read music is fun especially if you are interested and you know that you have that passion. You just need to find it and develop by practicing and getting good materials that will help you get into it. I love music, yea listening gives me peace of mind , the melody is like an angel singing in the sky. I am hoping that my girl will be able to take music lessons this summer.

Father's Day is just days away and we surely miss our daddy. I don't have a gift yet but we bought him a card and we'll save it till he comes home. Since he's not in the country we just celebrate the holidays that he missed when he gets back. I made a small presentation video for him on Father's Day and I wish he can watch it. But he can't hardly watch any videos I made due to a lot of security in his end.
For the man of my dreams, my best friend, a wonderful father, and a great son and brother, you know that we all are proud of you and know that you are always in our heart. We are counting the days when you finally be home. We miss and love you. Happy father's day.

We had a beautiful Sunday with light clouds up there, making me wonder if it rains or not but we still manage to go to church. We missed church last Sunday due to the weather , because of the fact that I don't want to drive in the middle of the thunderstorms. It scares me to death.
Anyhow, the children behaved till the service was over which I always pray for, otherwise it can ruin my whole day. Since I promise them we would go to a movie if they behaved in the church and they did. So we headed to the movie theater after lunch and watched the movie "UP". It was a good movie that touched me and the children liked it too. I guess the exciting part for them was getting popcorn and drinks. My boy was hypnotized while my girl was busy munching the popcorn. It could be more fun if Daddy is with us. Maybe next time.

A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it... don't waste them on exercise. Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your heart will not make you live longer; that's like saying you can extend the life of your car by driving it faster. Want to live longer? Take a nap.
Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?
A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat? Hay and corn. And what are these? Vegetables. So a steak is nothing more than an efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system. Need grain? Eat chicken. Beef is also a good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And a pork chop can give you 100% of your recommended daily allowance of vegetable products.
Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
A: No, not at all. Wine is made from fruit. Brandy is distilled wine, that means they take the water out of the fruity bit so you get even more of the goodness that way. Beer is also made out of grain. Bottoms up!
Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: Well, if you have a body and you have fat, your ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.
Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
A: Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No Pain...Good!
Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
A: YOU'RE NOT LISTENING!!! ..... Foods are fried these days in vegetable oil. In fact, they're permeated in it. How could getting more vegetables be bad for you?
Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?
A: Definitely not! When you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger. You should only be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.
Q: Is chocolate bad for me?
A: Are you crazy? HELLO Cocoa beans ! Another vegetable!!! It's the best feel-good food around!
Q: Is swimming good for your figure?
A: If swimming is good for your figure, explain whales to me.
Q: Is getting in-shape important for my lifestyle?
A: Hey! 'Round' is a shape! Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets.
And remember: 'Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO HOO, What a Ride'
AND.....For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health. It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies.
1. The Japanese eat very little fatand suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fatand suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
4. The Italians drink a lot of red wineand suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
5. The Germans drink a lot of beers and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans. CONCLUSION Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.
Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile.Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.
Remember, when the world pushes you to your knees, you're in the perfect position to pray.

Rude Kids The Fruits of Overdeveloped Self-Esteem
May 21, 2009
A recent report on MSNBC suggested that parents’ pre-occupation with their kids’ self-esteem may have produced “rude” children who lack compassion for others.
According to MSNBC, “many experts say today’s kids are ruder than ever.” The word “rude” encompasses a variety of behaviors, from selfishness to deliberate malice. In one example, a pre-schooler deliberately tripped a woman in a crowded restaurant and then bragged to her mother about it. In another, a child continuously insults his mother in front of his mortified grandmother. In both cases, the parent neither says nor does anything.
Apparently, these aren’t isolated instances: a 2005 Yale University study found that “preschool students are expelled at a rate more than three times that of children in grades K-12 because of behavioral problems.” It isn’t only preschoolers. The media has documented the behavior in the workplace of those born between 1980 and 1996. Words used to describe the behavior of the so-called “Generation Y” include “self-centered” and “arrogant.” As one management professor put it, “They don’t know when to shut up.” And having grown up questioning their parents, they now question their bosses. Whether or not today’s kids are actually “ruder than ever,” the article and others like it reflect the sense that something has gone wrong in the way we raise our children. Specifically, it has to do with “popular parenting movements focusing on self-esteem.”
These movements produce parents who “[respond] with hostility to anyone they perceive as getting in the child’s way.” By “getting in the child’s way,” they mean doing anything that might make the child feel less-than-wonderful about him or herself—in the classroom, among their peers, or on the playing field.
So today we have a generation of children who believe that the world revolves around them and that they are entitled to feel good about themselves.
Expecting children raised this way to be compassionate or even polite betrays a profound ignorance of human nature—the same ignorance that led to the “popular parenting movements” that created the mess in the first place.
These movements were inspired by the ideas of Romantic Enlightenment thinkers like Jean-Jacques Rousseau. According to Rousseau, “There is no original perversity in the human heart.” So, he says, “when children’s wills are not spoiled by our fault, children [desire] nothing uselessly.” So parents and teachers should strive to produce children who are “authentic, self-sufficient, and autonomous.”
According to E.D. Hirsch, this Romantic ideal that “each person has a natural and uniquely divine spark, which, if nurtured, cannot go wrong,” is behind the emphasis on self-esteem. The problem, as Hirsch points out, is that there is no proven connection between high self-esteem and actual achievement.
In other words, feeling good about yourself isn’t enough to make you good. You have to be taught right from wrong and made to feel bad when you deserve it. As the Scripture says, true parental devotion includes the willingness to correct our children.
The alternative isn’t “authenticity”—it’s spoiling their wills in the worst possible way.

Underlay paths with black plastic before covering with mulch, wood chips, crushed stone, gravel, marble chips, or shredded bark. In that way you will not be picking weed next time. . . and your garden will look stunning with all those beautiful flowers. And say "goodbye" to weeds.
Now, I am happy and more relaxed knowing that soon my flowers will bloom.

When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, I've got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes. Suddenly I didn't know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know what I was thinking. I want a divorce. I raised the topic calmly. She didn't seem to be annoyed by my words, instead she asked me softly, why? I avoided her question. This made her angry. She threw away the chopsticks and shouted at me, you are not a man! That night, we didn't talk to each other. She was weeping. I knew she wanted to find out what had happened to our marriage. But I could hardly give her a satisfactory answer; she had lost my heart to Dew. I didn't love her anymore. I just pitied her! With a deep sense of guilt, I drafted a divorce agreement which stated that she could own our house, our car, and 30% stake of my company. She glanced at it and then tore it into pieces. The woman who had spent ten years of her life with me had become a stranger. I felt sorry for her wasted time, resources and energy but I could not take back what I had said for I loved Dew so dearly. Finally she cried loudly in front of me, which was what I had expected to see. To me her cry was actually a kind of release. The idea of divorce which had obsessed me for several weeks seemed to be firmer and clearer now. The next day, I came back home very late and found her writing something at the table. I didn't have supper but went straight to sleep and fell asleep very fast because I was tired after an eventful day with Dew. When I woke up, she was still there at the table writing. I just did not care so I turned over and was asleep again. In the morning she presented her divorce conditions: she didn't want anything from me, but needed a month's notice before the divorce. She requested that in that one month we both struggle to live as normal a life as possible. Her reasons were simple: our son had his exams in a month's time and she didn't want to disrupt him with our broken marriage. This was agreeable to me. But she had something more, she asked me to recall how I had carried her into out bridal room on our wedding day. She requested that everyday for the month's duration I carry her out of our bedroom to the front door ever morning. I thought she was going crazy. Just to make our last days together bearable I accepted her odd request. I told Dew about my wife's divorce conditions. She laughed loudly and thought it was absurd. No matter what tricks she applies, she has to face the divorce, she said scornfully. My wife and I hadn't had any body contact since my divorce intention was explicitly expressed. So when I carried her out on the first day, we both appeared clumsy. Our son clapped behind us, daddy is holding mummy in his arms. His words brought me a sense of pain. From the bedroom to the sitting room, then to the door, I walked over ten meters with her in my arms. She closed her eyes and said softly; don't tell our son about the divorce. I nodded, feeling somewhat upset. I put her down outside the door. She went to wait for the bus to work. I drove alone to the office. On the second day, both of us acted much more easily. She leaned on my chest. I could smell the fragrance of her blouse. I realized that I hadn't looked at this woman carefully for a long time. I realized she was not young any more. There were fine wrinkles on her face, her hair was graying! Our marriage had taken its toll on her. For a minute I wondered what I had done to her. On the fourth day, when I lifted her up, I felt a sense of intimacy returning. This was the woman who had given ten years of her life to me. On the fifth and sixth day, I realized that our sense of intimacy was growing again. I didn't tell Dew about this. It became easier to carry her as the month slipped by. Perhaps the everyday workout made me stronger. She was choosing what to wear one morning. She tried on quite a few dresses but could not find a suitable one. Then she sighed, all my dresses have grown bigger. I suddenly realized that she had grown so thin, that was the reason why I could carry her more easily. Suddenly it hit me... she had buried so much pain and bitterness in her heart. Subconsciously I reached out and touched her head. Our son came in at the moment and said, Dad, it's time to carry mum out. To him, seeing his father carrying his mother out had become an essential part of his life. My wife gestured to our on to come closer and hugged him tightly. I turned my face away because I was afraid I might change my mind at this last minute. I then held her in my arms,walking from the bedroom, through the sitting room, to the hallway. Her hand surrounded my neck softly and naturally. I held her body tightly; it was just like our wedding day. But her much lighter weight made me sad. On the last day, when I held her in my arms I could hardly move a step. Our son had gone to school. I held her tightly and said, I hadn't noticed that our life lacked intimacy. I drove to office... jumped out of the car swiftly without locking the door. I was afraid any delay would make me change my mind... I walked upstairs. Dew opened the door and I said to her, Sorry, Dew, I do not want the divorce anymore.She looked at me, astonished, and then touched my forehead. Do you have a fever? She said. I moved her hand off my head. Sorry, Dew, I said, I won't divorce. My marriage life was boring probably because she and I didn't value the details of our lives, not because we didn't love each other any more. Now I realize that since I carried her into my home on our wedding day I am supposed to hold her until death do us apart.Dew seemed to suddenly wake up. She gave me a loud slap and then slammed the door and burst into tears. I walked downstairs and drove away. At the floral shop on the way, I ordered a bouquet of flowers for my wife. The salesgirl asked me what to write on the card. I smiled and wrote, I'll carry you out every morning until death do us apart. The small details of your lives are what really matter in a relationship. It is not the mansion, the car, property, the money inthe bank, blah..blah.. blah. These create an environment conducive for happiness but cannot give happiness in themselves. So find time to be your spouse's friend and do those little things for each other that build intimacy. Do have a real happy marriage!

You're the Best, Mom. The words that I thought I would not hear...not realizing that once you have kids these words become music to your ears and give joy and happiness that your heart can feel. I am just so blessed and lucky because my children always say "You're the Best, Mom". Even though I am so tough and hard in disciplining them. But afterwards they come to me and say I love you and you are the best. My heart melts with these words and my eyes start shedding tears. They are truly a treasure , a gift that you cannot buy or trade. The smiles on their face, a hug and a surprise kiss make you feel so fortunate that the good Lord has given you such a wonderful blessing.

At this gathering we can surely get a lot of good ideas and Jan will show us what is the right shade and type that will help enhance our beauty. Most women use it as part of their daily life , even these hard times they can't live without it. When you start wearing make-up , you are hooked the rest of your life. I am glad I hosted the party and I learned from it. I can now start wearing the makeup that Hubby gave me that has been sitting for an age in my drawer.:-) . Hopefully it's still good.

It is unusual this time of the year that we have rain every day , and this is for about a week now. When we first moved here it hardly rained. As I remember; when it does come it is a blessings and we love it. Well, maybe old man weather and can't make up his mind, probably forgetting that the rain should be dropping on the other side instead of around our place.-:-) It helps though to soften the dirt , making it easy to dig and ready for planting. I still have some spot for plants that I need to plant but not in these rainy days. I have some flowers and shrubs ready for planting. I am just waiting for the weatherman to clear the sky.

It was one cloudy day, after a heavy rain that came an amazing double rainbow. The children in our neighborhood including Marianne and Kenny were astonished to see this beautiful and natural creation of God. I was inside the house when the kids were calling me to come outside to see the double rainbow. Indeed it was a beautiful double rainbow that I witnessed. I was flabbergasted - can’t hardly believed it - because I haven’t seen a double rainbow in my entire life until that one cloudy afternoon. I am so lucky to see this wonderful nature and I am so proud to share the photo to all of you.
