ANDY is a black Mitsubishi outlander sports, she turned one month last 25th of April!
Daddy and his baby Andy @ the Parking
my kids helping their daddy clean up their new baby sister!
My husband is a very hardworking man and very enthusiastic one. When he sets a goal, he will surely have it in time. Aside from being 'kuripot' (thrifty), he really know how to handle his income. He knows his priorities and he knows when to spend money. I admire him for being like that though sometimes I am irritated. But anyways, an attitude of his like that is a good thing. If his not like that most probably we don't have any investments right now like our condo unit. Now he has his dream car already, and I will not be surprise if we have our own house and lot next year! Don't you think so? I'm sure we will, look at ANDY, daddy had her after saving in a few months and even got ANDY a CT car insurance. I wish Andy will stick to us for many years!
Now that were living on our own, we are the one's sustaining our needs already and so I am working on how to manage budgeting now coz if not, we will surely end up having credits in houston payday loan which is we don't want to happen. We just wanted to spent what we are earning.
I find budgeting groceries hard since it's my first time, but I am enjoying it. I am actually making one now for the next payday. We supposed to the list monthly but I guess it's better if we do it twice a month for some reasons like, to avoid the groceries getting expired and becoming rotten
It's only the groceries I am budgeting, imagine If I am in charge budgeting husband's salary? Oh that will surely makes me crazy. Good thing husband is doing it. Thanks to him! Lol.
When our family had our first health card in the Philippines, My husband and I took the opportunity to visit every specialized doctors like an E.N.T., Ophthalmologist, General Doctor, etc, and have us check just to make sure we're not having health problems. Imagine how much is the check up if you have no Health Card? One more thing that we love about health card is when hubby was hospitalized for a few days and his bill was more than 10 thousand pesos, thank goodness the health card provider reimbursed it. That is a big help right? I dunno, I am not saying we wanted to go to the hospital always, but I'm sure you understand what I am saying...it's always better to be prepared. Now, I am browsing some family health cards, searching what fits our budget. I am hoping we could chose a good one.

My husband just got his new car about more than a month ago. He had a serious money saving for a couple of months just to be able to have a nice car on his own and paid big cash out and now paying the balance via bank loan and I'm proud of him. Most of the people saying it's not hard to acquire a car here so I am looking forward to have mine someday. I guess I really need to look for a job first, right?
Another beautiful Wednesday to everybody!
Here's my entry for this week's just beautiful ...
Not myself again....we already knew that right so I don't have to say it, LOL. Just kidding. I am sharing the house in the picture. Those houses up there were really beautiful! It's my second time to come by this area and I kept on looking on those very eye catching view to me so I asked husband to take a picture of me with that background. Isn't nice? Wonderful right? Just wondering how to live up there? I wish to have a house like that someday like I am a queen living up in a castle, just beautiful!
I was planning to apply in a school. I wanted to become a teacher again and as much as possible, I wanted to work where my kids are studying so I can be able to be with them always. I know that's quite hard but I am just hoping to. If not, maybe I can look for a job just near the area. It's just a plan, it still depends on Him, I just wish it would be that way. I wanted to work and help husband in all our expenses and build our dreams together aside from that I also want to help my mama in her needs. She's not getting any younger and I wanted to give her some comfort. I can't wait to have a job already, I have so many things in mind that I wanted to accomplish. I really need to have a job and experience cash time. Good luck to me!

When getting ready, my attire depends on the occasion of course but most of the time depends in my mood.
I am 'kikay' but I am not that kind of girl who stays in the mirror for an hour or so.
But When getting ready, I am more concerned in preparing my camera bag, lol, and my kids stuff. I usually get my kids ready first before myself, so the tendency is that, I am the last person to come out in our room and get in to the car and expect to hear my kids saying or sometimes my husband, "Let's go mommy!". Duh, as if I didn't took care of them first? Hello! Hahahhaha! Again, I am not complaining, I just wanted them to realize the reason why I am always the last to get ready.
But when I'm in the mood, I don't care If I am so late especially when I wanted to put on make up, then they should wait! :D

Last Thursday when Daddy got home, he accidentally forgot something in his office so he decided to go back there. Kids and I accompanied him at his office and went shopping after to minimize usage of gas. It's my first visit in his office, I am excited to see where daddy works everyday. I never had a chance to go inside but my kids did, they need to use the bathroom so daddy has no choice but to bring them inside.
I didn't go inside anymore because I am so fascinated with the flowers in front of their office. Spring is indeed here huh? Look at the flowers they are as beautiful as me, don't they? Hahahhaha I wonder how the other readers that doesn't know me reacted on this lines. Oh just look at the flowers and no more violent reactions okay?

They are fun to be with, both the girls and the boys were all cool. There were also kids there for my kids to bond with. They seem to like each other and that's a good thing. They are the only playmates my kids have as of the moment plus the girl in our neighborhood.
Back to 'Party Filipinos', as what I've said I had fun! We had a wonderful dinner then had a great time bonding with them. I missed drinking too so I drink a little and sang in videoke. My kids had fun too playing ofcourse.
Most of us girls were MOMS so we are more like talking about girl and mom stuff and I love it. Sharing their experiences here in AR is a big help to me. I am really a newbie here, there are so many things that I need to learn and need to consider. Talking to them made me learn a lot, I suppose to ask what small business email marketing is if they know but I forgot to ask about it since there are lots of things we have talked about.
I am looking for another party next week and learn more from them.
I was wondering what kind of job that awaits here for me? I wanna become a teacher again in pre schools, I can also be an office staff or anything that fits to me. I was looking online already and there are lots of available jobs and company offering jobs and even online jobs like this ppc agency. I don't know how exactly it works but I guess this is a good form of income especially when you are a stay at home mom. No harm in trying right? But sincerely, I wanna earn, I really have to start hunting jobs.

I also made some dog tags for all my nieces and nephews as their Christmas gifts from us. It's also a nice giveaway if its just easy to create. Ordering personalized stuff takes 2-3 weeks of delivery. So I have to order at least one month before you need it. The latest of my orders were personalized tote bags, I gave it out to my friends before I left the Philippines. They also love it where their family's faces printed in there. I wanna try kids bagpack for a change but like what I have said, I can't order yet for I have to prioritize things starting now. We have to focus on our needs first like I guess we may be needing dallas lawn maintenance now that spring is already here. I will be ordering some personal stuff maybe when I already got a job.

Happy Pink Fridays!
I wanna share this week my one and only princess 'ISHI' in pink.
This shots were taken before my cousin's wedding ceremony. She was one of the flower girls, she love to hold the bride's bouquet rather than her flower basket. I m freaking out coz she said to me that she wanna marry ANJO that according to her is her boyfriend. Scary but cute little thoughts.
So Pink! Love it!
