Attending another Filipino American Christmas party

This is my second time to attend a Filipino American Christmas party this month. It is so much fun. It is awesome to see familiar and new faces. I love attending parties especially when my kids are involved too. It is fantastic for them to mingle fellow biracial kids.

The second party was held at the Knights of Columbus in Cheektowaga New York. It is a far drive for me. I am thankful to God that I did not get lost. My best friend Garmin the GPS  is good at me too. We drive and went home very safely.

You have to pay $35 for each adult to join the party. The kids are free. You have to bring gifts for the kids too. Santa is also coming. The food is delicious. It was worth paying for. My kids ha

My Victoria’s Secret birthday gifts arrived

My husband asks me what I want for my birthday. I told him that I do not want anything. He spent so much money for the kids gifts. He said that is okay. He will work over time to get more money. Is he not a sweet husband?

He told me that why not order something you like in Victoria’s Secret. He really know how to spoil his wife. It happens that I ripped my winter coat. I really need a new winter coat. You know how bone chilling cold could be in New York. I could order many sexy things I want from the Website but I passed.

Instead I ordered a winter coat. It is on sale that time. It still cost a lot. My husband does not mind it as my birthday is coming soon. It also happens that there is a free blanket if you order $75 and higher. I ordered a winter coat with free blanket. it also is free shipping too.

The other day my ordered came. I want to take a peek because nobody is around. I do not want to spoil my surprise. I cannot wait to open it. I am more excited with the blanket. I cannot wait to warm myself with that blanket while reading a book in my Nook.

How about you? Are you expecting a special gift from your husband this Christmas?

Ozeri has the best wine electric opener to enjoy your wine during the holiday

I admit I do not drink and not even beer or worst wine. My husband keeps on telling me that wine is good for a woman’s health especially the red wine. It is good for a woman’s heart. You can drink one glass of red wine once a day and you stay healthy.

I tried the red wine from the Fifty Shades of Grey wine collection. It is good but it is way too strong for me. My husband drink most of the red wine. I heard that white even tastes even better than the red wine. I bought the white wine.

The wine opener is electric. You can plug it on the wall or charge it before opening your favorite wine. I really love this wine electric opener. It comes with foil cutter, wine pourer and stopper. It is the best and greatest gift for a wine drinker during the holidays or any occasion.

The wine electric opener is fast. It works easily. There is a button to push. You can even open many wines compared to regular wine opener. This wine electric opener from Ozeri really is the best product. You can also check out their Facebook for other products like home or health. Ozeri is the most generous company that I ever worked too. I highly recommend their products to everybody.

I am now a wine drinker. I love to drink white wine though I get drunk easily. You should drink wine or any alcohol beverages at least when you are 21 years old. I will turn 41 years old this Christmas. I can now enjoy my husband’s company more when I drink wine and he drinks beer after dinner.

Disclosure:
I received the wine electric opener for free. I did not receive any compensation. All my thoughts and opinions are 100% honestly mine. It might be different with other people.

Thank you M for this beautiful birthday and gift card

I got these two beautiful birthday cards on my birthday. Do you wonder why I got two birthday cards? It is because one card is for my birthday and one for Christmas. My birthday is also on Christmas. How very lucky I am, right? I also received a $25 gift card from Aeropostale. M is actually my husband’s eldest daughter that spent her two weeks winter break with her daughter who is also M. She is actually my step-daughter but we are seven (7) years apart. Is she not very sweet?

my birthday cards and gift card
 

I really like my birthday gifts. The cards are beautiful especially that napping cat on Santa’s hat. I want to say thank you so very much to M. I also gave her shirts from Aeropostale. They are all short sleeves as she lives in Florida. I hope that she will like the shirts as well. I am planning to buy a winter coat on my gift card. The winter coat I am wearing now is very light which does not keep me warm when it is very cold outside.

My red Christmas dress finally arrived

I bought this red dress on Ebay last week with buy it now. It is also offer free shipping. The total cost is $9.99. I think I spot a great deal, right? I really love the style of the dress. I love the ruffles design that I hope will cover my rolls of fat.

My red dress for the Christmas party

Finally it came yesterday in the mail. I felt badly because the seller shipped the dress through priority mail which cost her $6. I am sure that she has deduction from Ebay fees and maybe PayPal fees as well. I am also an Ebay seller long time so I know the fees are. I do not mind if she shipped the dress through first class mail. I will need the dress for next month during our Christmas party with my Filipino friends.

My red dress for the Christmas party

I tried the dress. I am very happy that it fits perfectly. I feel comfortable wearing it for the Christmas party. I ask my husband to zip the back on my dress. He even asks me where I have to wear this dress. He told me that I look sexy too. I said that I am going to wear this dress next month on Christmas party with my friends and their kids. I know that he told me before that he will not coming. I guess somebody has changed his mind. I hope he cam come to the Christmas party as well. It will save me from driving to the Christmas party venue.

 

Now all I need is shoes to goes with my red dress. I bid a red boots on Ebay as well but I missed the time. I was outbid and did not win the red boots.

How about you? Do you attend Christmas party with your friends? Is your dress ready?

 

Victoria’s Secret gift cards that I received on my birthday

Christmas is my birthday. I am very lucky to share my birthday to those who believe in the spirit of Christmas. I remember growing up; Christmas is the best holiday for me until now still is. I might not have a grand birthday growing up. I am still very happy that people are celebrating Christmas with joy and laughter.

I remember that I only get to buy new clothes during my birthday. My Dad received an extra salary during Christmas. He gives each kid $25 to spend. This is the only way that I can buy new clothes for myself. I am still thankful for that. I missed my Dad so very much. It has been eight (8) years since the last time I saw him. He is in heaven now watching his kids and grandkids growing up.

Now that I live in America, I received gifts on my birthday. I prepare celebrating Christmas with my kids. My husband always gives me something on my birthday so as my parent’s-in-law. My husband and my Mom gave me Victoria’s Secret gift cards. I want to say thank you to my husband and to my Mom. They both know my guilty pleasure. My husband gave me a $100 while my Mom gave me a $50. I used the two gift cards yesterday online.

What about you? Do you like to receive gift card on your birthday? Do you prepare cash?
