Surprised treats from the husband on Valentines Day

It is time of the month for me. I am grumpy an in pain because of the cramps. My husband greeted me a “Happy Valentines”. I told him I do not have a card for you. He said that is fine.

He left and went to the grocery store while I am cleaning the house. He called me from the store if I need something. I said I am good and took a shower. He came home and was surprised to see this Valentines treats on top of the bookshelves.

My husband is not romantic but he is thoughtful. He brought me flowers, chocolates and a card. He also brought our daughter a teddy bear and card. I am glad that he always include our daughter especially if it is Valentines.

How was your Valentines Day. Hope you had fun with the love of your life.

I have been a US naturalized citizen for six years now

Oh my! I cannot believe I have been a naturalized US citizen for six years now.Time flies goes so fast when you are enjoying life. I remembered my daughter was only four years old and my son is  seven years old when I had my oath in the city.

Being a naturalized citizen is an amazing thing. Though it took me eight years finally to decide to apply for an American citizen. It was not an easy decision but I did it. I am also dual which is a wonderful thing so as my kids.

There are things I have learned from being an American citizen but one greatest lesson is never forget where you come from. Always put your foot on the ground. Most of all never forget to thank God for all the blessings that you receive.

Where we stayed in New York City 

It was a month ago today when three of my friends and myself flew to New York City. We had our girls vacation for four days. It was the shortest but best vacation ever. We were invited with one of our girlfriends that had a baby few months ago for her baby girl’s dedication. She moved to New York City five years ago. She used to live in Buffalo.

We stayed in her apartment in her son’s room. We did not stay in the hotel. We were so thankful that we stayed in her place. She invited us to stay in her apartment. We were pampered as well with her families kindness and generosity.

M her 11 years old son has bunk beds. I shared the bed with Miss J, on top is another J and across me is L. It was the best stay ever compared to any 5 star hotel. We do appreciated M’s hospitality and the rest of her family. She lives in Manhattan. We took many subway train rides to explore the city.

I wish to visit New York City again. I loved it there. How about you? Have you been to New York City before?


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.

I am loving this Margarita drink

It was Sunday when I was invited to attend a late birthday dinner at Red Lobster restaurant. Ms.D is celebrating her 48th birthday. You cannot guess her age because she looks so young. It took me 30 minutes to reach the restaurant.

Ms. D, the birthday celebrant order the Margarita drink. It has frozen ice in it. You can also order the other kind if you want. Ms. D asks me to try the Margarita. I remember my last time drinking Margarita was 2001. It was the day when I met my boyfriend now my husband. It has been a very long time since I drink the Margarita.

I am driving and Ms. D just take a sip from the straw. I think I sip five times. I really loved this Margarita drink. It tastes so delicious. I cannot wait to try this drink this summer.

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.

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.

The best gift I received during my birthday

I turned 41 years old last month and three days exactly today. I am fine if I do not receive any gifts on my birthday. My husband will not allow that to happen. He always told me that my birthday is not fair.

I am very simple and simple things make me happy like this birthday card that my husband and our son gave me. The birthday card is very funny and adorable.

My husband always include one dollar every time. He is not a cheap but very funny indeed. I think I received 12 one dollar if I keep the money. Unfortunately, I did not save them. I also received winter coat, blanket and winter boots aside from the card and that one dollar.

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?
