Anyways, I do love fall or autumn season. It is for me the mildest weather. I like the cooler breeze of air during this time of the year as well. We don't have fall weather in the Philippines. When I first saw the leaves changed it colors and then fell on the ground, it was a sight to behold. God's wonder is really an amazing thing to see. I am hoping this fall there won't be too much rain. But nowing here in the northwest wherein 9 out of 12 months we experience the wet days, whether it's winter, spring, summer or fall.
So, what are your plans for this fall? For sure we will be expecting the Halloween and Thanksgiving. I am excited for both since this will our DD2's first. More fun with my two girls. I can't wait!
Thanks for the guest post by Donn Schroeder.
The best wedding themed show by far is "Bridezilla" on the TLC network. I watch it on my satellite TV when there is nothing on our nfl Sunday ticket for the best reception and picture quality. I love crazy some of the brides get when they plan their big day. It really is incredible that some people live this way. I am sure that the producers edit the show to make them appear even worse. Thus, I am sure some girls are really very nice in real life but, on screen they are horrendous! If one thing does not go right then they leave destruction and tears in every single path. No one can escape their wrath and it makes you wonder what sort of man would put up with the crazy psycho? Even more puzzling is what family members or friends stick around after being treated like crap. The bride is hardly ever reprimanded after reminding everyone over and over that this is her big day and that it does not belong to anyone else!
Most of the time, the brides do not even have lavish weddings. Most are simple affairs that have been cavorted into extreme events thanks to the over imagination/ fantasy of the bride. Most of them do not have a whole lot of money to spend so they enlist the help from friends and family to help them out!

Now she is almost out of grade school. She have grown so much. I just grabbed her photo in her facebook page. I believe this picture was taken during her birthday last month.
I am so proud of her because she is not only pretty, she is also smart and talented. She maintained being top one in their class since first grade and she can sing too. I hope to see her when we go back to Philippines again for vacation.
As I am now past my 30's I still have that problem. In addition to it is looking for products for my face. I am reading to many reviews and I didn't know about vitamin c serum being used in cosmetics products. I maybe out of the beauty world for not knowing it. Anyhow, it is very interesting to be informed about it. But there are also cautions for those who are going to use it. Accordingly, it is not for everybody. It really depends on what works for each of us. But I may look into this c serum it may have a good review to try on to.
What is funny when we got back here from our vacation last year was that hubby was asking me how to lose weight fast. You will really gain weight over there because you will miss the food. My Mom cooked my favorite foods all the time. I am glad my husband is not a picky eater. He also ate whatever my Mom cooked except dried fish. I am pretty sure when we go back there I will gain weight again. It is just impossible to pass up those that I missed eating here.

I was apprehensive at first thinking it won't look good on me. But I have to try to see if it works or not. The process took longer than I thought. I was in the salon for about four hours. I had my hair done nails and even had my eyebrows waxed.
Now, I can say I am glad I did went to the salon because I like it very much. It does make a huge difference in my looks. Hubby said I look more beautiful and that is the most awaited compliment I want to hear that made the whole thing so worth it.
Now that I am married I have not become a matron of honor yet. I may not become one and will directly be one of the principal sponsor for the younger soon to be married couple. This means that I am not getting any younger. On the other note, me and my husband is planning to renew our vow in my home country. Maybe when we reach a decade of being married. We will see. It will all depend on the availability of time and funds. But we can start saving for it from now.
Two of my friends here also gave birth earlier this month. Only a day apart from each other actually. I told my friend that when their babies reaches a year old it will be a back to back kiddie birthday party. It's gonna be fun for sure. I like going attending to birthday parties over here. It is not only for Filipino food but most especially the get together, seeing my friends and their families.
If you get into accident your cheap car insurance will no longer be cheap and most of all you wouldn't know the extent of damage you will cause to yourself and to the other motorist. There are laws just about for everything in order to prevent accidents on the road but still law breakers are not threatened by it. They keep doing same mistake and violates rules and regulations. I guess it's human nature but definitely it is a bad thing.

The Bishop said that this month is a fight for your family month and that everyone should go to their family while the whole church do the prayer. I went back inside the sanctuary and hubby was so glad I did. He said he wanted me beside him while the church do the prayer. The Bishops call for prayer was so moving that alot of of churgoers really cried out loud. You can hear screaming, crying, singing and other type of noise. It was so moving. I never felt like crying so hard until that time. My tears just rolled down my cheeks I can't control it. Our DD1 kept whispering Mommy and wipe my tears in a way. She was in tears too seeing me crying. Me and hubby just hold hands comforting each other.
It was a wonderful feeling letting go of everything you fear and give it all to God. You felt relief as you know that God will be there to answer you and love you even in your inequities. Expressing your true self can help you in accepting your strengths and weaknesses. I am so thankful for every day of our lives that I have my family; my husband, my kids, and my extended family and friends. I am so thankful that God never stop loving us and always so forgiving.

I have two eight year old siblings at home, and when they saw the commercials for Nanny McPhee, they begged to go to the movies to watch it. My attempts at telling them to be patient it will be on DVD soon fail get past the excuse of "Everyone at class is seeing it." I thought it over, and recalled that they have been very good lately, doing their chores and homework without me or my mother nagging them, so I took them to the day show.
We left a bit late, as both forgot where they put their shoes. After setting the homes alarm system, we piled into the car. While driving, we agreed to pick up one candy for each of them at the store, and buy one bag of popcorn at the movies. Boy, they were giddy when we showed up at the ticket door! As we waited in line for popcorn, my younger sister decided she had to go to the bathroom when we were less than two people away from the counter. I begged here to hold it, but that failed. So we went, and had to start all over in line again.
We got into the movie room just as the show was started, and thankfully all setbacks were erased as they loved the movie. I did not enjoy it as much as they did, but it was fun to get out of the house!
So far both our vehicles are in good condition. We just changed some parts recently when hubby tuned it up. We didn't pay much of the parts though. We have it for quiet sometime now and still I am happy with it. My husband's favorite cars are Ferrari and Lamborghini. We were surfing online about these cars and boy he was very interested. He checked out different Ferrari parts and I know even the parts we can't afford. Well, who knows if we won the lotto then he can have his dream car. But for now we just have to put it off and wait til we already can.

I know I can finish it on time. I just have to manage my time properly. I know having two small kids and running the household is a bit too much if you add school but there are others that also have full time jobs on top of everything. So I know I can do it. With proper management of our time and set aside procrastination, then we can do it.

My best friend Lauren and I absolutely love our chick flicks. Almost a new one comes out every week and we go and see it. It truly is roommate bonding time for the both of us as we swoon over the male lead in the film and wish we were the woman he was pursuing. Every Sunday night we set the security system and ADT carbon monoxide detector on our house and head down to the theater in the next town. We choose to go on Sunday nights because they are far less busy than Saturdays and Fridays.
We purchase our tickets and we always sit in the front row. Although it may cause a bit of a neck ache after the film we have found that the closer you sit the more real the picture becomes. If you sit somewhere in the middle or the back of theater you get caught up with what is happening around you. Girls are usually crying and guys are usually rolling their eyes. Kids are very impatient and someone always seems to be throwing popcorn. Sitting in the front eliminates or at least reduces the little aspects of life that pull you out of the movies. Lauren and I go to the movies so we can fall in love all over again.
