Moving in a New Place

I welcome myself back on my own blog that I have created for over five years. I really haven't had a chance to update this blog but I'm glad I finally come back to my senses especially that I just moved to a new place. Since January of this year a lot of things happened with my life. My husband applied for a job in another city in Texas and got a lot of offers. To make the story short, my husband took the teaching job in a small city called Beeville which is 45 minutes away from Corpus Christi and two hours away from San Antonio.

But before he got this teaching job offer he went for a six week training to become a full time Correctional Officer. He did like the training at first but it was so hard for us to be apart. We made the decision to be apart temporarily especially that I was still working at that time. We finally made it and moved to this little city. My husband and I are both homesick and we are looking forward to go back to El Paso in November for Thanksgiving.

Anyway, we are both surviving in this new strange place. Hopefully, we will back in El Paso next year.

Happy New Year Folks! What's New?

I have lost interest to update you guys about what I have been up too since late November of last year. As a matter of fact, I could not believe that I still remember my password and username for my three blogs. This main blog will turn seven years later this year and I feel so guilty that I haven't been active unlike when I first started in 2008.

There are a lot of things that changed since late last year and that includes our move to the north east side of the city. We are fortunate to have a friend who offered us to do house sitting while they are out of the country in exchange for free rent. We thought about the offer for many months and it is in our best interest to accept their offer. Their house is a two story house and has four bedrooms. My husband and I had plenty of room to roam around the house unlike the apartment we have before. The only thing that I am not a fan about the location is the drive back and forth.

Also, I have some good news I'd like to share with all of you guys. Guess what? My husband got a job offer from out of town and we are looking forward for another adventure. Well, I am not a huge fan of moving again but it looks like opportunity finally comes knocking through our door. Both my husband and I like the idea of starting fresh this year and we can't wait for whatever this future has to offer for us.

The good thing about the city we will be moving into is that it is both one of our favorite cities in Texas to visit every year. We are so close to the beach as well as the other surrounding big cities in the areas. But if there are other job opportunities here in El Paso then we are willing to stay here for good.

What about you guys? Anything new? Please leave your comments below. May all of us have a great week ahead!

Rest in Peace Robbie

I haven't been updating all my blogs for over a month now and I feel so guilty because I love to update my readers on what is happening with me and my spouse. First of all, we loss a great member of my husband's family last November 1, 2014 and this is by far the hardest thing anyone had to go through especially with our entire family and close friends. I cannot give a lot of details about this for now since it is still under investigation. The entire community of El Paso, Texas loss a great citizen, a father, a brother, a son and a well respected member of our local enforcement. We are still in great sadness but together as a family we will do our best to get by and remember all the happy memories with my husband's step brother. We are hoping that justice will be done. May you rest in peace brother!

Nine Years Death Anniversary of my Mother-in-Law

Last September 8th, my husband and his entire family remembered and honored the memories of my mother-in-law who passed away nine years ago of cancer. My sister-in-law especially shared the video they had made for her funeral which chronicles the life of their mother and we can't help ourselves but be emotional. Everyone in the family started sharing their favorite memory of their mother and I remember the words from his mother before when my then boyfriend now my husband went to the Philippines for the first time. She told me on the phone "Geraldine please takes care of my baby", and I know in my heart from then on that my husband is closed to his mom.

Unfortunately, my mother-in-law and I didn't get a chance to meet in person but I am thankful that her entire family made me feels welcome. My sister-in-law Michelle also told me that she thank God that Tony had me by his side and they are thankful that I am taking good care of their baby brother.

Anyway, we choose to remember all the great things my mother-in-law did in her lifetime and we are looking forward to be reunited with her in the next life to come.

Visiting Four Cities in Texas

My husband and I had a blast during our road trip vacation last week. As a matter of fact, we visited more cities in Texas compared to our previous trip. We visited San Antonio, Houston, Corpus Christi and Pearland Texas. Our trip was short but we had so much fun.
By the way, one of the many highlights of our trip is to visit the newly opened Jollibee branch in Houston, Texas. It is the most popular fast-food chain in the Philippines which is comparable to McDonald's. I haven't had any food from Jollibee since I last visited Philippines in 2010. I almost cried when I entered the store and saw the menu. It reminds me fond memories I have with my family back home.

Other than that, we also get a chance to hang out with my husband's Uncle and his family in Pearland, Texas which is about 20-40 minutes away from Houston. Uncle Edward is an established lawyer in Houston and in fact he works as a Judge there. We stayed there for one night at their gorgeous looking home. They welcome us with so much love and excitement which is really cool. His wife Aunt Debbie made dinner and breakfast for us. My husband's cousins are so friendly and kind. We are so thankful for them and looking forward to see them again next time.

Also, we went to visit the beach in Corpus Christi and we went to the River Walk as well in San Antonio. We always adore these two cities in Texas and it is good to be back after two years of not able to come back there.

Anyways, take a look at these gorgeous pictures below. I hope everyone is having a great evening and a great week.
