My first car

Yay! I have my own car now! Obviously it is not the latest model. It is a 2002 Saturn but I am happy about it because it was very obvious that the first owner of the car took good care of it. We got it yesterday and we still have to wait for 1 week to get the title from BMV. As soon as we get it, we will buy a plate and insurance for it so I could drive it.

It has 4 door, automatic, A/C, Power Windows, Power Door Lock, Cruise Control, Power Steering, Power Seat, AM/FM Stereo, CD player, Dual Airbags , Leather Seats and most of all, it is a gas efficient car. The mileage is not that high, it has 118k miles. All the wheels are in good shape and they look good as new, so probably it will take 2 more years for me to buy new tires. Oh well! I still have to learn things about car stuff and I still have to learn how to drive. Hopefully I'll find someone who is patient and brave enough to teach me how to drive lol!

Wow! I can't believe I have my own car now!!

Freschetta saved our dinner!

This post brought to you by FRESCHETTA®. All opinions are 100% mine.

My family and I are crazy now with FRESCHETTA® Simply…Inspired™. I love cooking but there are times that I am too tired to cook specially when I get home from work so I am happy that Freschetta is there to save our dinner hehe. They have 8 flavors but my favorite among them is the Chicken Spinach Mushroom, hubby's is BBQ Special Chicken.

I love the thin and crispy crust style of their pizza plus the taste of it is really addictive. Actually, my friend is the one who recommended me this pizza and when I went to the store, I bought only 1 of their pizza to try it. And from then on, I kept buying it and tried almost all their flavors. My dad-in-law is not even into pizza til he tried Freschetta's Rustic Pepperoni Pomodoro. I like their packing too. It is vibrant plus the pictures on it makes you hungry to the point that you would want to try it hehe. But what it shows on the packing is true. You would love it and you will definitely buy it again and again because of the good flavor.
To my likeness of this pizza, I followed them on Twitter and liked them on Facebook and that's where I discovered that they are giving away weekly prizes all through out the rest of 2011. And also on Facebook, you will be able to print out $2.00 off coupon by just simply giving your name and email address after you like them. I am thinking of having Freschetta again tonight but this time I will have their Hawaiian flavor. YAY!

My first job

There are so many people having hard time looking for a job to support their family and yes I was one of them. I feel so blessed to get hired at McDonald's as a crew. To tell you frankly, this is not my dream job but I see this as a window to good opportunity. The McDonald's where I am working now is not far from where we live. It is only 5 minute drive.

I started working yesterday, and they put me at the cashier at the drive thru. Oh my! It was sooo busy and I loved it! One of the crew was there training me how to handle the cash register and teaching me almost everything in the drive thru. In my opinion, drive thru is much busier than the dine-in, not sure if its like that in most fastfood or it is only in our branch. But anyway, so far so good and I am so excited to learn and work more.

It was so funny because the night before I work, I could not sleep at all because of excitement lol! I woke up 4am and was able to get sleep at 8am. I woke up again 11am, took care of my son and I felt sleepy at 2PM where I should get ready for work LOL! I took a 30 minute nap and left home at 3:30 for my 4pm shift. Was so sleepy when I got home from work that I just crashed in bed.

I am happy that I have supportive husband that took care of my son while I was at work and will watch him whenever he is not scheduled to work. My dad-in-law is supportive too. Actually he is the one that will babysit Zac today hehe. And guess what? Hubby will buy me a car at the end of this month so I could have my own ride going to work! Woohooo!

My 29th

This is the last year that I will be on my 20's. I does really bother me none like other people. For me, age is just a number and it is the person's personality that makes him/her look and feel old or young.

Last year, hubby surprised me with a pair of turquoise earrings which is the birthstone of our son. This time, he bought me a pair of diamond earrings which is my birthstone. He actually gave his gift to me 4 days before my birthday because he said he can't wait to see my reaction hehe. I loved his gift and I was so happy.
