Puppy Love

 Written by my friend Otis Buckley

We certainly were not in the market for a new dog, but when the opportunity presented itself to have a sweet little fur ball come live with us full time, it was more than we could resist. It didn’t take long for us to remember, puppies come with challenges! We are adjusting well and I have been watching some great shows on direct tv milwaukee and learning a lot of good ways to offer positive reinforcements when she is a good girl. I love The Dog Whisperer, he has taught me many ways to make both my dogs realize I am pack leader and this is the way things are going to be. They both seem so calm and comforted by having someone in charge. They also make such good company for each other. I never thought my big old mutt would love to play with a tiny pooch like he does, but he loves her as much as we do. It makes for lots of great pictures and belly laughs just to watch them play.

My US Naturalization Ceremony


The month of March has been really hectic for me because both of my classes for Monday and Tuesday need a lot of my attention. I have a lot of study materials plus my professors required a lot of readings on both classes. I do enjoy my classes this spring because I had learned a lot especially the history of Mexican-American and Modern Africa.

Well, I have some wonderful news to share with you folks. I am so proud to tell you that I became a Naturalized United States Citizen as of March 28, 2012. The ceremony was very moving and it made me want to cry but I was doing my best to compose myself during the whole ceremony. It was a small Oath Ceremony with 32 participants from 5 different countries. I happened to be the only one from the Philippines who became a US Citizen. I am grateful for my husband and for my family for all the support and loved plus I am thankful for our God the Almighty who makes every impossible thing possible for His children.  I have uploaded some pictures also within this article during the said event.

Grow your Dream Garden with Miracle Grow!

This post brought to you by Scotts®. All opinions are 100% mine.

 I just recently had the opportunity to work on my husbands step-father's garden where he is trying to grow some flowers and a few vegetables and I had some trouble until I was able to purchase some of Miracle Gro's Expand ‘n Gro™ product. This product is fantastic because it helps to grow up to 3 times the amount of plants and vegetables compared to using native soil alone, and this I found out through experience. It also improves the soil for years to come and its all natural fibers hold up to 50% more water that average potting soil, so gardening at my father-in-laws house will be easier from now on. The other  reason I like this product so much is that it actually feeds for up to 6 months! So I am sure that after you have read this, you must be wondering, how can I try out Expand 'n Gro? Well fortunately there is an opportunity to try a sample of this product just by trying out their giveaway by commenting on this blog. Whether you are trying to grow a beautiful garden with assorted flowers or would like to grow fresh vegetables, this is the best way to do it, for now take  a look at this video and leave comments if you wish.

Young Achiever in the Family



I am so happy and proud to be the oldest sibling among 12 children because I got to see my younger siblings achieve top honor rolls at school. Actually, my baby brother and my little sister who is the youngest among 12 children have their recognition ceremony at their school today and both of them received first honor roll. I am really happy to know that they were able to adjust very well with their new school after my mother switch school last year. Without further ado, here's the picture for you to see.

It Feels Like Summer

I woke up really early today because I was sweating like a hog. The weather has been really hot lately and it just barely the start of spring. I can already imagine how hot it will be in Texas this summer. Our AC in our apartment has not been on but I am hoping they will have it on very soon because I can't stand the heat. The heat makes me angry and frustrated. I am so excited for Wednesday to come because something special will happen on that day which will change my life forever.

Well, I'd better go back to bed because I still need to attend a class later today. Ciao everyone!

Short Term Car Lease

In these hard economic times there are many things that we have to give up because they are luxuries, one thing that we need no matter is a vehicle because without a vehicle we will not be able to drive to work, school, grocery store, etc. Since everyone needs a car the question is, how do I go about getting a car at a decent price? Well, have you ever thought about getting a short term lease on a car? Just recently I ran across a website called Cars on Demand, found at Cars on Demand dot co dot UK that will allow you to get a short term lease on a vehicle. The short term leases that Cars on Demand offers are 1 month, 3 month, and 6 month, all of which are quite convenient and flexible. Also keep in mind that Cars on Demand has had incredibly high record sales since 2008. So if you are looking for a vehicle to get you around I highly suggest that you look up Cars on Demand, you will be glad you did!

First Day of Spring Has Arrived

The weather yesterday was crazy. First we experience sand storm and after that we had hails and then after I got out from my afternoon class we had snow showers for a bit but it melted right away. It was indeed the craziest so far that I've experienced since my arrival here in Texas for nearly six years. Since I wasn't expecting the weather to be cold yesterday, I only wore a light sweater which was really bad.

I am happy that today is the first day of Spring and I can't wait to check out the different type of flowers that are blooming at my FIL's house this weekend. Happy first day of Spring folks!

Texas Car Insurance

In this day in age, saving money everywhere you go to is incredibly important because, let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to save money? Well, one of the things that everyone needs, including Texas residents, is car insurance. Car insurance is also something that can be quite expensive and saving money on car insurance is very important, but at the same time having insurance that is reliable is still important. If you are looking for cheap car insurance Texas, I have came across a great website that will help you find just that. At Cheap Auto Insurance dot com, you can get a free quote on car insurance simply by entering some basic information and you can find out which car insurance companies will offer you the lowest rates. I think it is great that they have major car insurance companies listed on their website so that you know that you are going to be covered by a very good company. Keep in mind that you can find insurance companies that will cover your car in whatever city in Texas you live in, whether it be San Antonio, Dallas, Austin, Houston, or any other city. In Texas it is also important to know that not having insurance can result in being charged high fees and the fact that it goes on your record, so it really is important that you have insurance. Right now experts in the industry believe that in 2012 it is highly likely that car insurance prices will go up, so now is the best time to get insurance for your car before the rates become even higher. If you are like me and want a good insurance company while saving money at the same time, I highly recommend checking out Cheap Auto Insurance dot com, you will definitely be happy with what you find.

Finally in San Antonio, Texas

Good morning folks, I would like to tell each one of you that dear hubby and I finally arrived in San Antonio, Texas after a grueling 8 hour drive on the road. We were fortunate that both hubby and I were able to take some time off from our places of work together. By the way, we both loved to travel and since I haven't been to San Antonio since I arrived here in 2006; we finally decided to take the plunge. The bad side though is that the weather is not cooperating with us. It has been raining all day and it looks like the weather forecast will be the same for the rest of the week. Hopefully, we will still be able to push through with our plans. Anyways, I hope everyone will have a great weekend.

March Madness


It seems that time flies fast these days. It has been five days that I haven't posted anything not because I don't have anything to say but I am just extremely busy with my work and school. My weekend was pretty good because I was able to spend time with dear hubby. We went to the firing range and shot our rifles and handguns. Also, we are heading to San Antonio for Spring break this coming weekend and I am more excited than ever. It is my first time to visit San Antonio and we are going to Sea World, River Walk and other places. We also are planning to visit Corpus Christi and check out the beaches there. I am counting the days when we can go. Hopefully, my vacation leave will be approved tomorrow.
