Missing The Warm Weather Already

How do you like this cold weather so far? As I’ve mentioned in my previous posts, I am not fond of cold weather at all. This cold weather makes my knees hurt, hahaha. Maybe it sounds funny, but it’s true! I’m probably too young to say that my knees hurt, but in cold weather like this, it does hurt. It also makes me feel sleepy all the time. Not only that, this cold weather makes me tired and also makes me want to have Pho every day. Hmmm, I need to learn how to cook Pho to save me $15.00 per order (big bowl). This Pho from Bangkok Spice, located in West Monroe, tasted good! Every time we dine-in or ordering on the phone, I always get the Pho. Sometimes I added crispy rolls to go with my Pho. In the meantime, I’ll have to keep me warm until this cold weather is over. Cause everyone else in the house except me is loving this cold weather so far.

It’s not even Winter yet, and here I am already missing Summer. My body is active, more energetic, and stronger on warmer days. In colder days, I feel weak, achy, tired, and lazy. There you go, I laid them all out. I’m sure, I’m not the only one dealing this dilemma.

My question to you is, “How is this cold weather affects your body?”

Sunday With Great Friends

We had a great Sunday at church yesterday morning. Powerful praise and worship. Most of all, listening to the word of God through our Pastor’s preaching – always the best part! So glad to also see some wonderful friends as well.

After the service, we headed out to Ate Nelda and Kuya Mike’s residence to have a lunch fellowship with friends and also a celebration for seeing Ate Rose and Irish again. They are now both residing in other states. So, we won’t be seeing them back for a while. Many thanks to Ate Nelda and Kuya Mike for opening their home for us and for all the delicious (masarap) food they prepared. It was a fun-filled and such a beautiful day.

Have you ever been to a Filipino get together? If you did, then you already know that we love to eat, laugh a lot, talk a lot, and sing karaoke, hahaha. If you haven’t yet, now you know, lol!

Where Has My Day Off Gone!?

I’m physically exhausted after working for seven days straight. When I’m at work, I always give my best to do my job well done because I was hired and get paid for it. I do not particularly appreciate going to work and do nothing. It’s not who I am. Thank God; finally, it’s my day off today. I woke up so late, had brunch, went back to bed, and got up at 1:00 p.m. Sounds good, right? However, there was nothing to be excited about this day off. You know why? The day just went by so fast. The next thing I know it’s 5:00 p.m, and I haven’t done any house chores except washing the dishes only. I usually multitask in doing house chores, but I didn’t have the energy to do those things today. I am not even cooking for dinner! The easiest thing was going out to eat for dinner and came back home right after. So, right now, I’m just sitting right here relaxing and sharing with you about how my day off goes. Well, honestly, it doesn’t feel like a day off to me at all!

So, my question to you is, “How do you spend your day off ?”

My brunch. A cup of coffee and rolls of Hawaiian bread.

My U.S. Naturalization Oath Taking Ceremony

Last Friday was my U.S. Naturalization Oath Taking ceremony in New Orleans. It’s a five (5) hours drive from my town. We left Thursday after I picked up my boys at school. We arrived in New Orleans a little after 9 p.m. Checked in late at the hotel we stayed in for the night. The hotel we stayed at is called Brent House Hotel. This hotel is attached to Ochsner Medical Center located on Jefferson Highway near Uptown New Orleans. From the hotel, it was only a 15-minute drive to where my Oath Taking ceremony took place.

AT THE CEREMONY

We arrived at the USCIS facility before nine (9) in the morning. The ceremony started a little after ten (10) and was over at about twelve (12) noon. I wasn’t sure how the other applicants felt that day but I was a little emotional. After I applied, I waited eleven (11) months for this very special day. After living in the USA for a decade, who wouldn’t get emotional?

AFTER THE CEREMONY

Now it’s time to celebrate! My boys are so ready to explore around New Orleans. They are loving this busy city so far.

Finally, I Found The Most Comfortable Running Shoes

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Finding the right pair of running shoes has been a struggle for me for a long time. I would say most of the walking or running shoes that I have not only hurt my feet but also give me blisters. I couldn’t even wear any of those shoes for a long time without having pain on my legs. Until one day, I went to the Shoe Department Encore store at the mall to pick up my eldest son’s shoes that I put on layaway. While I was at the store, my gut really told me to go check out their Clearance Room for good deals (when your gut is telling you something you gotta trust it ). I get disappointed most of the time because whenever I find very comfortable shoes it’s either the size runs big or they don’t have my size. I wear a size 5 and that’s size 3 in girls. Hahahaha it’s a cute size!

So I checked the store’s Clearance Room and saw this pair of Skechers Elite Flex. The first thought on my head was “please I need a size five (5). When I picked the right foot and checked the size, I was like YEAH BABY YOU’RE MINE! Also, guess what? It was on sale for under twenty dollars ($20.00). So delighted I went to the store that day because these shoes are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn.

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THIS SHOES?

I can literally wear this pair all day long without pain in my legs and feet. The memory foam inside feels so good. Yes, this pair has memory foam inside. I Tested it for a week by wearing the pair every day and yes it passed my expectation. I highly recommend these shoes.

WHAT I DON’T LIKE ABOUT THIS SHOES?

The only thing I don’t like is the soles. They collect dirt and rocks and when you clean it, you have to dig it out.

Find Time For Yourself

Have you ever feel like you have no time for yourself? While other people think that you have all the time for yourself. People around you see everything you allowed them to see and judge you based on it, but how about those things that you don’t want anybody to see. How about your time? Do you really have time for yourself? I’m not talking about the time you spend shopping; spending with friends; watching movies; or even eating out. I’m talking about the TIME you need to meditate and spend it with God. The TIME that you need to figure things out in your life and do what you really love to do. Have you ever find time for yourself?

Not long ago, I’ve been asking myself the same question. Do I find time for myself? The answer is NO! People who know me swimmingly think I have all the time for myself for one reason they could think of. I’m not working. Yes, I am unwaged right now, but that doesn’t mean I have all the time for myself. I am an honest person and I will tell you that I am struggling in that area.

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Time after time, we ignored ourselves because we have other priorities. Those are just excuses! I admit I’m that person too. There are things that I really want to do for myself but I don’t have the time for it, because like what I said I have other priorities and I don’t think about myself until now. You too, if you find yourself in the same situation, probably, that should change. Don’t be afraid to find that TIME for YOURSELF and GIVE yourself the time you need.

Filipino Grocery Shopping At Saigon Asian Market

You guys know that when you are craving for something you will do everything to satisfy that craving, am I right? Being a Filipino I know that I’m not the only one that is always craving for some Filipino foods, snacks, and etc. Before, we had to travel for 2 hours just to shop at an Asian market in Shreveport. There were also plenty of times that we drove four (4) hours to shop at a Filipino grocery store called Kababayan Asian Food Mart in Tyler Texas. Driving that far for grocery shopping means I had to make sure that everything I need was written down on my list. Honestly, driving that far is exhausting! Thankfully, we have a new Asian Store in our local area now that carries a wide variety of Filipino goods. This store is called Saigon Asian Market. I’m sure the Filipino community here in Monroe and West Monroe are very happy just like me. Now, whenever I’m craving for my favorite snacks or something else I’m grateful that I can finally get it, enjoy it, and the cravings are satisfied!

By the way this store is located in Monroe, La.

Saigon Asian Market: 5202 Desiard St, Monroe, Louisiana 71203

Daisy Our Star-Spangled Pup

Went to PetSmart in Monroe last week to look for something sweet for our Daisy. It was my first time at a pet store ever because it is the first time for me to be a dog mom. Looking around the store and checking out cute stuff for dogs make me want to spoil Daisy more. After spending about an hour, I finally, saw this cute dog shirt. On the back of this dog shirt, it says “Star – Spangled Pup.” Isn’t that cute? So, we bought her the shirt.

When we got home, I wasn’t sure if she will even like to wear a dog shirt. While I tried to put the shirt on her, she was a little hesitant. After successfully putting her new dog shirt on, guess what? She instantly loved it! I was so surprised but at the same time, I’m so glad our fur baby loves her shirt.

After a couple of days, I tried to take her shirt off to give her a bath. She was all over me and tried her best to get her shirt back. I thought that was the cutest stunt she ever did. I let her have her shirt back. She was sitting on the floor with her shirt on her mouth. Then she dropped it on the floor, and the most hilarious and cutest thing she did was when she tried to put it on herself. I was literally laughing out loud. After a few minutes, I picked it up and put it back on her. I think wearing a shirt helps her feel safer. I think it’s time to get another shirt for replacement whenever I need to wash her favorite shirt.

Dollar Tree Cute and Inexpensive Easter Decorations

For others, it might be too early to shop for Easter decorations. However, for me, it’s probably a good idea to get them early because you can choose from more extensive options. If you will buy them later or even just a couple of days before Easter, there might be fewer options available. These kinds of items sell too fast!

When it comes to buying Easter decorations, where do you go? For me, I always buy them from Dollar Tree. Seriously, I don’t spend too much money to buy expensive decorations for one-time use only. So my first store of choice to go buy Easter decorations is at Dollar Tree. This store have a lot of really cute stuff. Sometimes, it can be very overwhelming to choose which one you want to get. I’ve rounded up a few Easter decoration photos below in case you haven’t been to Dollar Tree yet.

Aren’t they cute? What do you think? I hope this will give you an idea on where to get cute and inexpensive decorations for Easter.
