We Are Excited to Welcome Year 2012

I am finishing up wrapping some egg rolls that I will take later at our Filipino New Year's Eve Party later today. I can't believe that 2011 will end so soon. I am grateful for the many blessings our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ bestowed upon me and my family. I have so many things to be thankful for which I can't iterate here. I am hoping that this coming New Year will bring forth more blessings and opportunity and I am looking forward to start expanding our little family.... A little bundle of joy will be a great addition for me and my beloved husband.

Relocated to Texas

 The Author of this post is Solomon Dejesus

My husband and I recently relocated to Texas to be closer to his family, and we couldn’t be happier here. Compared to our last state, Texas is so wide open, and the people are so friendly. We love it. We’ve taken in both of my in-laws, both of whom are having some health issues. While we all love having them so close, it does come with some additional expenses that really start to add up! They’re both on fairly priced medications, and the frequent doctor’s bills are starting to take their toll on us. We’ve started searching for ways to save money and were fortunate enough to discover shop electricity rates Texas. Texas is one of the few states that has a deregulated energy industry, so we have the ability to shop around to discover the lowest priced provider. It’s such a huge relief to know that we have a little cushion in our budget now—I can’t believe how much we were overpaying every month to heat and cool our home! We have put all of that money into a college fund for our children. I can’t imagine the money going to a better use.

Proud Pinay

I've met a couple of new Filipinos in one of the Asian store here in Texas while purchasing my ingredients for the  Egg roll (Lumpia) which I will be preparing tomorrow night for our Filipino get together party this New Year's Eve. Here's the thing, some Filipinos are friendly and would actually go to you and ask if you are one of them but most of the ones I've met here are very snobbish and pretend not to speak our own language. I find this type of behavior very odd and awkward because I am proud to be from the Philippines no matter where I go or do. But some are just very pretentious and so forth. Anyways, one of the individual within their group actually asks me if I understand what they were talking because I was just smiling while waiting for my turn to pay for the items I got. Of course, I said yes with a big smile and told them that I am from another island and I spoke Visayan. I had shared with them our Filipino New Year's Eve party and invited them to come and attend. I am hoping they would go since they are new to the city. Good night y'all!

My Newest Silver Sandal

After our dinner with my husband's family, we went and check out one of my favorite stores in the mall. I went directly to JCPenny and check out their shoe department and I wasn't disappointed because I found a beautiful pair of silver sandal for $4.97 from its original value of $55.00. I grab it right away and I was so excited to show the pair of sandal to my husband who was also checking the men section of the store. Instead of purchasing a new handbag I choose to get this sandal because it wasn't too much and I am thinking of sending it to my family in the Philippines. Take a look at the picture below!

Spicy Food I Love and Hate

We had so much fun today after I went to pick up my check from my place of work. Actually, two of my sisters-in-laws from out of town came to have dinner with us from one of our favorite Mexican Restaurant here in Texas alongside my husband's three nephews and Step Dad. I ordered the dinner special which consists of steaks, rice and long green chili. As much as I love eating long green chili but the aftermath of eating those spicy chili is so bad. I totally regret eating that yummy hot chili. I am hoping my stomachache will be gone before I go to work tomorrow.

Happy 19th Birthday Sister

One of my younger sisters was celebrating her 19th birthday yesterday. I remember the day she was born because I helped my Mom picked her name. Plus, I was there to assist my Dad and Mom at the hospital especially that I am the oldest child that they have. I was so happy to welcome her in our family and she always makes us proud. I would like to greet my sister Jessa Kristine a huge Happy Birthday and may you have more birthdays to come. We love and miss you dearly!
