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.
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.

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.
