Pilaster lighting

Image
Since at this time of the year we have short daylight and the night is longer every time I passed a house or visiting a friends house I can't help but appreciate their outdoor post mount lighting fixtures. I am a kind of person that is so keen on observing what makes the house has a very good curb appeal. And one thing that I discover is the lighting inside and outside the house.  Last Thanksgiving day hubby and I were visiting three of his children and I noticed that my DH son just put up a new pilaster lighting along the driveway. And it looks so cool and just gorgeous. I can't see why hubby won't do it at our driveway. I've been nagging at him to put a post mount lights specifically at the north part of our house because that part of the property is very dark. And I don't like that around the house has a dark part. That's why last Thursday I told him to finished what we had agreed upon to put lights on that side part of the house. And thankfully he agrees wit…

I page coupon

Image
This morning a friend email to me and she gave me this site ipage coupon. She said that I have to checked it immediately because many of our friends online are using it already. So I checked it and it's about coupon site for web hosting. This is what I was looking for. For several days now I was thinking of changing all my blogs into my own domain and because I have several blogs I have to look for some discount right? This site came on the right timing and it makes me smile. Love it!

MAT degree online

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of 2tor. All opinions are 100% mine. The other day I heard my hubby talking to his son. His son got married last Spring and her wife got a full time job as a teacher in grade school  this Fall. They were happy about it who doesn't right? And he said that his wife is looking for a program information  that will lead him to take an online Masteral degree.  I told him to look online like the one  USC Rossier School of Education’s MAT@USC  is offering. As I was browsing their web site I found this things  very important...-Earn a Master of Arts in Teaching degree from an internationally renowned research institution with a 100-year history of educating teachers to be agents of change.-A School of Education which has been ranked #22 in the United States, and #9 among all private universities by US News and World Report.-An innovative combination of highly interactive online learning with field-based experiences in your local area.-A gro…

Work boots USA

Image
Just one night to go and it will Thanksgiving day. It's the day that the whole USA celebrates and be thankful of everything. After the Thanksgiving day is what we call Black Friday. Since I don't cook anything this year because we are going to visit some of my DH children I have lots of time to go shopping online wohooo!! But the other day I told hubby that I am going to do window shopping on Black Friday but if I find something cheap and worth to spend for I would buy it.  What comes in my mind to buy for my DH is a work boots that is in good quality. A boots that will last at least 5 years. I don't mind paying a little bit high as long as it last longer and in good quality. I've been juggling what color and design would I choose. But most of all I am thankful that I find a site to shop for good quality work boots.

Dehumidifier

Image
I chatted my cousin today who is in UK for several months now. She arrived in UK last Summer and she told me she enjoyed it a lot. She missed her two nephew's and her sister who is a nurse just gave birth to baby girl. So it makes her busy too. The thing that we laugh at is all those stuff that she told me so new to her like the dehumidifier UK. She thought at the beginning that it's some kind of a fan. It turns out its a dehumidifier. She asked me if here in the US there a re some stuff that looks foreign to me I told her there are many but I see to it that I have to know what it is before tinkering it. She later knew how and when to use it and she said that it helps her a lot in Summer to feel cool and cozy.

Personal: My Reporter

Image
I called my brother the other day (night in the Philippines) and I talked to my nephew and niece. My niece who is 8 years old reported me that his Kuya was being hit by somebody his classmate. And she said that his Kuya cried and I asked her if they told the teacher about it. And she said they did.  I hate kids who bullied and hit somebody. I remember our parents told us not to start a fight but if somebody would start a fight and you are going to be bullied fight back!! That's why growing up nobody liked to bullied me because they knew I will fight back. But with my nephew he is soft spoken and he is a really good boy and oftentimes that is the most likely to be bullied. Last year he was enrolled in another school and he was transfered to another school immediately because he was harassed by one parent and bullied by the son of that parent. When I learned about I was fuming mad!! So I send my sister in law to go to the school and talked to the principal and from what she told me i…

Reconditioned Tools

Image
Since I came here in the  US six years ago I noticed that hubby has so many tools. Back in the Philippines a carpenter had a hard time owning his own hammer, saw and other tools. But here everything is electric. Last week we bought a white paint to put on the door trimming and as I was walking the aisle in this huge store I couldn't believe how high all the tools now. I do remember that every time hubby wants a tool or couldn't find any he just drove to the store and buy it. I discouraged him from doing it. It's a waste of money and it's not really good. Buying in credits is not good!! Because he has many tools I told him that if he wants to reconditioned tools just go to the highlighted link and he could find anything he wants to be reconditioned. In this time where economy is bleak we have to be practical and conservative in spending our hard earned money. Gone are the days that we buy stuff in an impulse. Or buy anything that is all new for we knew now that it  reco…

Life Insurance

Image
The morbid thing to talk about between couples is about life insurance. I don't know growing up in the Philippines I don't hear people talk about life insurance. It was only here in the US that hubby encourage me to talked about issues that I feel uneasy to talk about. Before I came here in the US hubby  thought about Term Life Insurance. That time he doesn't have any so he was looking for it. A son of his told him to Buy Life Insurance because he said he need it. So he did but he was looking for a specific thing and he found it. He is the kind of person who doesn't like to be told to get a checked up because he wanted to bought a life insurance. So when he found this Life Insurance No Exam  he didn't hesitate to grab this opportunity. From then on he is telling to everybody to get an insurance. A toll free number 1-800-939-0710 can be called in the United States for a free insurance quote so call now friends!

The cat

Image
That's my nephew Gino and my niece MG. This morning I called my brother thinking that he is not on duty (he is a cop) but turns out that he is on duty. So I just talked to him for a short time.
He told me that Sunday morning Philippine time...he received a text message from his wife telling him that my nephew Gino steal a cat from a man. My brother was angry he hurried home. The man who went to our house telling my SIL that Gino took his cat, told my brother what happened too. So Gino was called and was investigated by my brother immediately. What was the real story is that my nephew's friends asked my nephew Gino to get the man's cat. So my brother asked my nephew where is the cat now and Gino told him it in the house of their other friend. So they went to our neighbors house and get the cat and gave it to the man. Lesson learned: My brother told my nephew not to listened to his friends because they are not real friends they are BAD.  And he should think before doing it, an…

Boudreaux's butt paste

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Boudreaux's Butt Paste. All opinions are 100% mine. I don't have a child  but I do love kids. I love their innocence and I love listening to them. Unlike grown up people we tend to go around the topic but with kids they go straight to the point and they don't  lie hehe! Because I am an at home wife my DH son's or daughter's often asked us to keep and eye or leave their kids to us. I don't have a problem with that because as I have said I love them. One time I was baby sitting Caiden and the first day I noticed that he has this diaper rash on both of his groin. I panicked lol!!! I immediately called the mom and if she knew about it. She told me she forgot to tell me that Caiden had diaper rash and that inside the kids bag is a Boudreaux's Butt Paste  ! How in the world can a mom forgot to tell me about it? My DH was a bit disappointed but I told him it's okey maybe Amy did really forgot to tell me abou…

My cousins son

Image
Kids do love mascot and so do I. This picture was taken during the birthday of my cousin's son. The two little girls are my nieces and the one on the left corner wearing a red shirt is my one and only nephew. I missed them very much, but I am happy that I could see their pictures online and share it here. I hope next year I can visit them and spend time with them.

Love this watch

Image
Are you kidding me? This is the kind of watch that I like to show off to my friends haha! I tell you, this dolce and gabbana watch  is the coolest ever that I have seen. I love the black and the crystal look and the design is just gorgeous. I chat my niece this morning but it was night time in the Philippines. She is also fond of watches and she had more watch than I am. I used to buy her watch that are a bit expensive and the quality is good. When she sees this dolce and gabbana watch she almost flip she love it to the max!
So she asked me if she could have this watch as a Christmas gift and without hesitation I told her why not. I could tell she has an ear to ear smile. I love to spoil my niece and what I like is to have good things for her. And this one she can get this Christmas!! 

Street market

Image
That's my nephew wearing a red pants and he is with our house help. My brother sent this picture to me and this was taken one Sunday morning. In my hometown every Sunday morning the city officials closed one stretched of road just to let farmers display and sell their products. People all over the city flocked this place to buy cheaper fruits and vegetables. I love going to this place because all that is sold here are fresh and most likely no pesticides or insecticides small farmers can't afford to buy those expensive chemicals. I remember my nephew used to tag along with me going to this place and now he is with our house help accompanying him buying fresh produce. Love my nephew I so terribly missed him.

Weekend Reflection

Image
It's kind of hard to find a good reflection this week since we had gloomy day all the time. In fact, the weather man "predict" that we are going to have flurries!! Hmmm not yet please!  Anyway, last Trick or treat I was browsing around and see who am I going to take a picture ( I am very careful in taking picture of people specially with kids whom I don't know) but found myself taking the reflection of my own car.
