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.

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

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.

What sanitary pads you use when you have your monthly period?

I bought this Modess dry maxi sanitary pad back in Manila last July of 2012. It is 40 pesos or $1 for eight pads in a package.

PhotobucketI bought it in the Seven Eleven a closest convenient store near G Hotel in Roxas Boulevard where we stayed at. I was so scared walking in the dark street with my little girl with me. You still can see lights but it is not very clear. It was seven at night. I even carried my little girl with me while walking to the convenient store. My monthly period come as a surprise. I have no choice but have to buy a local sanitary pad.

I still have the two pads left in the package. I used it yesterday and I feel so itchy. I think I am allergic to that sanitary pad. I just want to use it all up.

PhotobucketI usually use the Stayfree maxi regular pads.

PhotobucketStayfree maxi is thicker than the Modess dry maxi. This one feels comfortable. Do you feel like that too when you use a different sanitary pads? What kind of sanitary pads you are using?

Day 05- A picture of somewhere you have been to

There is no place in the world that I rather be now except in the Philippines particularly in my home town, Cagayan de Oro City. I left my heart in Cagayan de Oro City. There is no place like home.

GOD is so great that HE allowed me and my daughter to visit the Philippines. I am not really looking forward for a very long flight. I am thankful that despite of the delayed and canceled of our flights; we arrived safely back home to New York. I spent most of the time with my Mom who I did not see for six (6) long years. I did not visit beautiful tourist spots but I did spend my precious time with the most important person in my life which is my Mom. I am sorry to my friends that I did not spend more time with them. I hope that you forgive me. I will let the pictures describe it for you. Please forgive me for uploading many pictures.

I never forget the moment that I am looking down at my home town, Cagayan de Oro City, up in the air.

PhotobucketIt was such a big relief when our plane, Philippine Airlines, landed in Lumbia airport on the 29th day of June 2012.

PhotobucketMy Mom and my niece P stayed with us in our hotel room. We stayed at Country Village hotel in Carmen. I wanted to stay in my Mom’s house to save some money but my little girl will not allow me. She loves the pool at the hotel we stayed.

PhotobucketThere is two free complimentary breakfast in the hotel. I let my little girl and her cousin gets the free. My Mom and I choose our own breakfast food. I am very privileged to spend my Mom’s 69th birthday too.

PhotobucketMy two sisters flew from Cebu City to spend my niece 8th birthday at Opol Beach.

PhotobucketDuring the morning, I spent my time in my Mom’s house. My little girl met her cousins and meet new friends as well. I am having a hard time using my debit cards to use when we go out. What I do is?

PhotobucketI send my Mom some money and the two of us picked it up at a pawn shop. It works this way. I can use some cash.

PhotobucketWe eat most of the time at Jollibee Vamenta in Carmen with my Mom, my two nieces D and P. My little girl loves to eat pancake and spaghetti. I also enrolled her at a Jollibee Kids club.

PhotobucketWe went to Raagas beach. The water is blurry because it rained most of the night. My little girl loves the beach.

PhotobucketWe stayed in my Mom’s room just to talk and spent quality time together. This is use to be my room when I was a teenager.

I hope that you enjoy our pictures. They are not beautiful but I am happy that I spent most of our time with my Mom and my family. I am linking this entry to the 5th day of blog challenge. Today’s task is about a picture of somewhere you have been to.
