Be Active and Enjoy the Outdoors

In my mind, there is no reason  not to go out there and enjoy the beautiful world we live in. Also not forgetting to mention the gorgeous weather that Spring brings! With that, I am taking advantage of the pleasant Texas temperature while it lasts. I go out for a walk around the neighborhood or drive to a nearby trail and bring my girls with me to have my walking exercise while they ride their bike and play in the playground afterwards.

We only have two months left before the temperature rises up to triple digit so better walk as often as I can. Being fit is a person’a choice and I  choose to be fit because I am growing older and I want to keep up with my children. Besides, high blood pressure runs in our family and I don’t want to acquire that disease for it hurts losing someone due to high blood pressure.

Exercise and eating healthy food (well maybe not at all times, a few sweet and carbs indulgence might not be bad as a treat for myself) is what we practice in our household. Most of our meals are 99% cooked in our kitchen. Hopefully, we will stay healthy and live longer. That is my only wish in this life.

I Love Anything Western

It is when I arrived in Texas over nine years ago that I learned and appreciate anything Western whether it be boots, home decor, furniture, country music, clothing/outfit and etc. I wish we live in a Western part of the country so I will be heavily influenced by the people living in it. Somehow I would like to pretend I am one of those tough cowgirls complete with all Western clothing and accessories.

There is a stock show in Fort Worth that runs Jan-Feb 15 every year where people can come and experience a great stock show, shop and just hang out with other people. Events like this I am interested to come and dress up with my cowboy boots, jeans, a hat and of course a shirt.

With that said, I wish I can buy a new pair of cowboy boots like the one I am eyeing on at Eli Western Wear Women’s Cowboy Boots website. I already own two pairs but you know, a women can never have enough pairs of shoes, much more a boot. I got all sand-like and red/brown boot colors, a pink color for my third wouldn’t be bad just like the one in the picture below lifted from the link above.

Classical Acoustic Guitar

One of the many things I plan of doing when we are able to go for a vacation in my home country this year is to let one of my girls enroll to a music lesson, I contacted someone who can do it for her and hopefully, she will learn basic guitar. There is nothing like having a child that can play a guitar and buys her a classical acoustic guitar in the future. I have high hopes for my first born. She is smart, she learns pretty fast and learning how to play a musical instrument wouldn’t be a problem to her, I believe.

Chris Soules Picked Whitney, I Liked Her

I love watching The Bachelor and The Bachelorette shows. Although for some, think they are fake. When I do like someone, I follow him or her. Chris Soules, I liked him as a person he is and I am glad he picked Whitney over Becca. He was smitten by Becca, yes but Whitney was all in and was ready for a big change of her life. She seemed genuine and sincere. All I can hope is that, their relationship will work out fine and be married for a long time just like my favorite couples in the past shows.

Couples I liked got married and are now happy in real life. These couples are Sean and Catherine, Desiree and Chris, Ashley and JP… hopefully, Chris and Whitney will be one of them who entered into the show and successfully found what they were looking for.

The couples I didn’t like were Juan Pablo/Nicky, Ben/Courtney, Emily/Jeff, Jake/Vienna, Andy/Josh all split up in just a matter of short period of time after the reality shows ended. Why? Because, these people I believe were fake and just for the publicity and fame’s sake why they got into the show. Also, strong and different personalities of the partners they chose to pick play a big factor as to why their relationships did not succeed.

The most shocking event I cannot forget and will never forget was of Andy and Josh, they were acting as if inlove, so into each other together during the Premiere of that event on t.v sometime in 2014 and then two days after they publicly announced that they have broken up. Yucks!

Pencil Drawer

If there is one place in the house that is messy and has a lot of paper and all kinds of stuff scattered on the desk, it is in the study where my husband’s desk is. It is a multi purpose desk, our 6 year old girl also uses this desk for her drawing and cut out papers. Every time she does that, she leaves a big mess and pencils laying all over the place. We are using an ancient desk and therefore, needs an additional compartment like a pencil drawer to keep all pencils and pens in one place.

This pencil drawer is ideal for new desks you are making or retrofitting into an existing desk that does not have the convenience of a pencil drawer. It mounts directly to the bottom of the desktop with the 4 included mounting brackets. If you have a lip on the front of your desk, it may be necessary to block down so that the mounting point of the pencil drawer is flush with the bottom of the lip.

“Two Wives” November 4 Episode Trended Worldwide

I am not much of a soap-opera person but I am following the only Filipino tv show “Two Wives” I am interested watching. This is the only thing I look forward to watching every afternoon even though it is thought-provoking series. As it goes on, I can’t help but be furious of the story especially last November 4 episode when Yvonne pleaded for her husband to come back and not leave her while she was down on her knees.

That is just unbelievable that directors and whoever they are behind this series, they make it look like the real wife is a loser and a martyr. This only shows a wife’s weakness instead the mistress should be the one pleading.

If I was the one who got betrayed by my husband in real life, there is no way I would do that like in the series, it is clear that once a husband cheated on his wife it means he doesn’t love her nor respect her anymore, so what’s the use of keeping him in my life?

MANILA – A pleading Kaye Abad in “Two Wives” stirred buzz online on Tuesday, making the primetime series a worldwide trend on Twitter.

In the November 4 episode of “Two Wives,” a desperate Yvonne (Abad) asked her husband, Victor (Jason Abalos), not to leave her and their son for Janine (Erich Gonzales), his mistress.

Kneeling at one point, Yvonne even asked forgiveness from her husband for saying hurtful things when she first found out about his infidelity. Unmoved, Victor left and sped off in his car. Yvonne ran after him, only to end up on her knees out on the street.

The dramatic scene drew strong reactions from viewers online, with some feeling sorry for Abad’s character and others expressing their anger at Victor. There were also netizens who said they could not wait for Yvonne’s transformation and revenge. You can read more and watch the video on ABS CBN link here.
