Barn Charm

Image
Hubby and I were driving around and this particular barn has a very beautiful story to tell. My hubby told me that his paternal grandmother and grandfather meet here often when they are trashing grain (wheat or oats). I think the love blooms here while both are helping their parents in the fields. I love stories like this because how many people meet in a place were both are working hard. Frankly speaking many young or old now meet each other and claim they fall in love at the bar or  disco house or party what ever kind of parties it is. Comparing the two scenarios I like meeting my man while he is working hard I am working hard than meeting a man under the influence of who know what hehe. Oh by the way, I asked hubby just now, "are they riding the buggy before" hubby just laughed and he said " I imagine because that was in the 1900's" oh my it is really a buggy they are riding. ^_^ I again asked hubby "do you think this is the same barn or it's been …

We were invited for a garden wedding last year and the park is beautiful. I took a lot of photos and there is the bridge that the town people adorned with flowers. A very gorgeous town!

My Niece Birthday

Image
Last February 20 my niece turn 10. Yes she is getting there lol! I have not seen them for 2 years and basing on the photos my brother showed me over FB she is getting big and so her brother and sister. I am so happy that she is already 10 years old. I am amazed of how beautiful the cake is. It's very colorful too. And by the way she has lechon or roasted pig lol! According to my brother the office mates of her mamay and papay are going there for lunch and in the afternoon all the kids on the block is going to celebrate with her too. Here are some of the photos.


It is also our customed that when it is our birthday we are going to attend mass or if we can't we are going to a shrine and light a candle. That is what my nieces and nephew are doing here. As they lighted the candle they also offer a prayer for their sister who is celebrating her birthday that day.



           What about you guys and gals do you have a custom on how to celebrate your birthday?

CLIPIX is the BEST!

Image
clipix is a free awesome, new and useful tool that is changing the way we organize our lives online. It solves the problem we all have of seeing tons of things online each day and never having a good way to save and organize them. By using clipix, I keep everything I could find online save it and come back later. One factor that I like to organize here in clipix is my family. Most of my relatives are in Facebook and Twitter I could easily share these post to them. I can also invite them to look at my blog or video online or email them my CLIPIX. My family life is not that chaotic I have some sites that I can consider part of my life like the home remedy website. One time my BIL had a tremendous stomach pain. I immediately look at the home remedy website but it takes me more then 10 minutes locating it. If at that time, I had CLIPIX it is just one click and I am in the website. Thankfully, what I found in the home remedy website I share it to my BIL and he was relieved of the pain but …

PaperKarma

Image
Have you heard this new app in town? It is called PaperKarma. I was blog hopping and stumbled Still In Saint Louis blog and she is featuring about PaperKarma. My reaction was WOW!! It's a fantastic way to get rid of all our junk mail by taking photos from our iphone ( just got one this year cheap!) and voila PaperKarma will contact the mailer and remove you from their distribution list.
Doing this, can you imagine how many trees do we save. Even if they say they recycle the papers but how many of us do recycle things? Many that I do know don't recycle they dump papers, cans, bottles in one garbage bag.  Friends do the PaperKarma and SAVE TREES!






ABC Wednesday

Image
One place that I like to visit again is Detroit Institute of Arts. Hubby and I went there last month and for me one day is not enough. The building is huge and there are so many things to see and I am not the kind of person just to look at paintings or jars but I have to read what's being said in the sign or label. This photo is in the second floor of the building the ENTRANCE to the painting gallery. Geez, I was so excited and thought of wishing that they allow taking photos (no flash) and they allow, I was so happy!

 I like playing EYE SPY but hubby is on a hurry what the heck? Next time I would leave him at home! LOL!!


         I have seen this in the European gallery. These are owned by the past Czars, Prince, Princess etc. I       know this is EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE!!!

A Savings Club Is Here

Image
This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. We all know that prescription now days are very expensive hardly to find medicines that are low cost.  Why I can say this is because I found out that the prescribe eye drops of hubby cost $60.00 for only 5ml. Who could imagine that cost a lot for an eye drops? Therefore, I told hubby we have to find a way that the cost of his eye drops can be lessen though we have insurance but it is still expensive. That is when I found out through a friend’s blog that Walgreens Walgreens Prescription Savings Club exists. How and why I do not know it I do not know. However, after reading the blog we went to our local Walgreens just seven miles away from our house and inquired about it. It is very easy to join for $35.00 a year; a family membership covers everyone in your immediate family, including a spouse, dependents 22 and younger and pets. For individuals it only cost $20.00 a year. It also …
