My 2nd book postcard from Lithuania

I received this second book postcard from Lithuania. It is my 97th postcard that I received since I joined Postcrossing 11 months ago. This postcard took 12 days to arrive from Lithuania to New York. I liked the stamps too.

The postcard came from Mr. V. He is 62 years old. He likes to work, hunt, read books and travels a lot.  He visited 74 countries in the world.

Thank you so much Mr. V for this beautiful postcard and stamp too.

A funny card that I received from my husband on our anniversary

If you know my husband, he is really a serious man. It drives me crazy sometimes. He seldom laughs. He has a sense of humor I think that he hides. He is a very shy husband of mine too.

Anyway, three days ago we celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary. We did not go somewhere. He is very tired from working so many hours. He grilled my favorite American food, steak that is. I love to eat it with mushroom as well. It become my favorite when I was pregnant with our little girl almost 9 years ago.

He also gave me this card which is very funny. I am fortunate that I have those assets too. He does compliment me anytime and squeeze it all the time especially when I am in the kitchen doing the dishes or making dinner.

I thank God for blessing our marriage. I hope that we can survive all the trials that our relationship will encounter.

What did I redeemed with my Victoria’s Secret reward cards

I used two of my Victoria’s Secret reward cards. I still have the two cards that I will redeem before they expire. I just wish that these swimwear comes as one price but unfortunately it does not.

My second pair of Victoria's Secret swimwear

My second pair of Victoria’s Secret swimwear

I love the color of my new swimwear. I also love the flirty style. I cannot wait to wear them. I love the top of the swimsuit. You can wear it strapless. I like mine with strap. It keeps my small girls safe and secure.  I know summer will come in two more months. I cannot wait. I have worked out so I can wear my swimwear with proud. This is my second swimwear that I bought this year.

I am not sure if I could wear this swimwear in public like going to the beach with my family I hope this summer. I do not think my husband will allow me. He is a little protective. Do I ashamed of my body? Definitely not, I know at 41 years old I still got it.

My recent shopping bags

I had the four Victoria’s Secret reward cards. I need to use them before they expire. Unfortunately four of the cards have $10 in them. I was hoping for more but it did not happen. Oh well I will try next time.

My recent shopping bags

I drove to the mall while my husband is at work and my kids were in school. I have to make sure that I get home before the bus drops them in our house.  I seldom treat myself. Usually it is for my kids when I shop but this time, it is all about me.

I am happy with how I redeemed my cards. I also shop at the Aeropostale. I love that store as well. They have adorable display. I wish I have more money. I did not use any credit cards. I am trying to use my debit card and stay away from getting bills.

Happy 12th birthday to my dearest son

I cannot believe that the premature baby weighs 5 pounds and 4 oz that I gave birth 12 years ago is now weighs 86 pounds. I weigh 88 pounds when I first came in America. Where did the time went? I still remember the moment when I was admitted at the hospital on the 1st of February for my doctor to stop my contraction. I was only 7 months pregnant. I was sent home the next day but that night I was admitted at the hospital because my contraction started again. I gave birth to a baby at 11:45 that night of February 3rd.

My K has been through a lot as a premature baby. He was born healthy despite being born early. He has the speech therapy until now. Now he talks a lot. He is a very strong kid. He is very shy yet kind to other people. He loves sports like hockey and football. He is my crazy driver who loves to drive the golf cart and especially his ATV.

What I love about my son is? He is a very simple kid. He is easy to please. He has his moment as a typical boy does. He is growing so fast and almost a teen-ager now. He is very respectful and loves his little sister and always protect her. They are the best buddies for life.

I wish my son the best in life to offer. May all your dream comes true son. Always remember to being kind to other people. I love you more that you ever know. I will always be here for you no matter what.

We had a simple birthday for my son yesterday. He does not want a birthday party. He wants to eat at Chinese buffet which we did at lunch time as they only have the half day at school that day. He also wants Lego like Police and Fire Station as birthday gifts. Grandma and Grandpa gave him Xbox 360 games as he likes to play. The little sister gave him a card and inside is a $12 from her own money.

He invited a classmate from school who is his buddy. He does not want a birthday cake. The younger sister helped me bake and decorated it. It was a simple birthday for my son. I am glad that he had a fun birthday.

Happy 12th wedding anniversary to both of us

I cannot believe that I have been married to the LOVE of my LIFE for 12 years now. We got married on the 11th of May of 2002 after almost three months when I arrived in America.
Being married to my husband is not easy. There are times that I want to give up or call it quits. There are times that being married to him is really tough. But when you love that someone so much that you are willing to give it a try to sacrifice. I am glad that I did. Our marriage is not perfect. We have ups and downs. What matter most is we survive when the storm hits our marriage.

 

Our wedding day 12 years ago

Our wedding day 12 years ago

I got married at a beautiful garden in hotel by a civil rights. My cousin Miss I and her husband drove from Minnesota to witness my wedding. I am very grateful to her and to her husband until this day.

We did not have a celebration in our wedding anniversary that day. It was also a Mother’s Day. I left early in the morning to drive my son to an emergency as he got hurt. When we are done with the check-up, it was afternoon already. I have to attend a party around three that afternoon. I have few minutes to open my kids Mother’s Day gifts.

 

Thank you sweetheart for the beautiful card and $12

Thank you sweetheart for the beautiful card and $12

I also gave my card to my husband. I also give him a small teddy bear that has the anniversary words on the front. He gave me a beautiful card and inside is a $12. I would be happy with just a card. My husband is goofy and he always brings me smile. He has a sense of humor which happens once in a while and never stop to make me smile.

I want to thank my husband for loving me. I want also to thank him for accepting me just the way I am. I want to say thank you also for giving me two trouble makers who makes my life more fun.

“You’re Still The One”

(When I first saw you, I saw love.
And the first time you touched me, I felt love.
And after
all this time, you’re still the one I love.)
Looks like we made it
Look how far we’ve come my baby
We mighta took the long way
We knew we’d get there someday

They said, “I bet they’ll never make it”
But just look at us holding on
We’re still together still going strong

(You’re still the one)
You’re still the one I run to
The one that I belong to
You’re still the one I want for life
(You’re still the one)
You’re still the one that I love
The only one I dream of
You’re still the one I kiss good night

Ain’t nothin’ better
We beat the odds together
I’m glad we didn’t listen
Look at what we would be missin’

They said, “I bet they’ll never make it”
But just look at us holding on
We’re still together still going strong

(You’re still the one)
You’re still the one I run to
The one that I belong to
You’re still the one I want for life
(You’re still the one)
You’re still the one that I love
The only one I dream of
You’re still the one I kiss good night

(You’re still the one)
You’re still the one I run to
The one that I belong to
You’re still the one I want for life
(You’re still the one)
You’re still the one that I love
The only one I dream of
You’re still the one I kiss good night

By the way, I love this song from Shania Twain. The song is entitle YOU’RE STILL THE ONE. I love this song very much. I think it describes how our marriage like. You can sing along if you want. I also included the lyrics.

Received a Mother’s Day card and a picture from my husband’s eldest daughter

I am very happy and surprised to receive a Mother’s Day card from my husband’s eldest daughter. There is also a picture enclosed with her daughter. I received cards from her before like Christmas but not Mother’s Day card. I want to say thank you so very much M. You are very sweet. M is also growing beautifully like her Mommy.

 

Thank you M for this beautiful Mother's Day card and picture too

My husband’s eldest daughter lives in Florida with her family. She teaches fifth grade. We saw her and her daughter last Christmas. I am very blessed that she accepted me as who I am. M is seven (7) years younger than I. We had an amazing time when they were here last Christmas. She and little M really bonded with her siblings. It is funny that little M’s niece is younger than her. Little M’s uncle is the same age as her. They get along really fine though. My kids missed their big sister and their niece. I hope they will come back again.

Got a free getaway bag from Victoria’s Secret

I received this coupon in the mail from Victoria’s Secret every month. I am always looking forward to receiving any coupon from my favorite brand. This month’s coupon from Victoria’s Secret is a $10 off for any bra, one free Pure Seduction Mist and free getaway bag if your order reach $75.

a free getaway bag from Victoria's Secret

I drove to the mall and went to Victoria’s Secret store. I ask the sales clerk firs if the getaway bag is still available. She said that there are few getaway bags left. The promotion is only up to Sunday or while the supplies last. I bought some stuff at the store to avail the free getaway bag. I also use my angel credit card. It is zero balance.

I am very happy that I got this getaway bag. It is a beautiful bag. It is not too small or too big. It is just perfect. You can carry the getaway bag in two ways. You can carry it by your hand. You can also carry it through your shoulder. Now all I need is a getaway to use my beautiful bag from Victoria’s Secret. Would it be awesome to escape from this snowy and cold Western New York and swim to a paradise island. This girl can dream you know.

My Valentine’s card from my husband

How was your Valentine’s celebration with your husband or boyfriend? I hope you had a memorable day during the day of hearts.

Valentine's Day card from my husband

My Valentine’s Day is just simple. I wanted to watch a movie that my husband likes. We do not have enough time when the kids get home from school. Nobody will watch them when they get off from the bus. My husband instead told me to buy the DVD when it comes out later.

Valentine's Day card from my husband

My husband and I had a lunch date at Applebee’s restaurant. The kids are in school so we spent our date without them. He also gave me this Valentine’s card. He thinks he is not romantic but actually he is without knowing it. I really love my Valentine’s card. It is very beautiful. He is also a funny husband of mine. He also included a one dollar inside the card. I take a peek so it was not a surprise anymore.

Getting big together

I ask our little girl to take a picture of us together. We are getting big together. I do not mind it since we both love each other with our looks, right? How about you? What did you got on Valentine’s Day? Did you go out on a date?
