I am happy to have my job

I don't get paid well, but, I am happy. I am happy because I am capable of helping my husband pay some of our bills. I am happy because I have my own money and I do not need to ask money from my husband. I am happy because I have money to shop, hehe. I am happy because I am capable of helping my family in the Philippines by sending them money from my own pocket. I am happy because I do not only earn money but I also get to make work friends. I am happy because through working, I build self-confidence. I am happy because I have a career. I am happy because I feel blessed for having a job. And most of all, I am happy because for me, working is a part of self-fulfillment.

Thank You Lord that I have a job :)

Sexy Halloween Costumes

I can not believe that Halloween is fast approaching. I love Halloween. For me, it is a special day. Why? Because you can be whatever or whoever you want to be on that day, which I think is pretty cool. You can dress in silly costumes, you can be your favorite artist, and you can also make yourself look scary, funny, or sexy.

I have a sister-in-law that likes to wear Sexy Halloween Costumes every year. She also likes attending Halloween parties. I hope I can attend a party with her this coming Halloween. She told me that she likes purchasing sexy costumes online rather than purchasing them at the store because it is more convenient that way. I agree with her. Last year, I purchased my son's costume online as well as mine. I got my order fast and I got the items in perfect condition.

I am always excited every Halloween but more so this coming year. I am actually now thinking of what I want to be and I am also thinking of the cutest costume for my son. I am looking forward to knocking on our neighbors doors and for trick-or-treating with my son. I also look forward to giving away candies and chocolates for the other trick-or-treaters. I like looking at the kids running around our block, wearing their costumes while carrying their bags of candies with smiles on their faces.

This Halloween will fun and I can not wait for it.

Box full of goodies

I am thinking of sending a Balikbayan box (box full of goodies) to my family in the Philippines next month. So, every week or every time I have the extra money, I go to the mall and store to buy somethings that I can put in the box. I already bought shoes for everyone, for my mom and dad, my sisters, my nephew and for our housekeeper. I know all their shoe sizes and their like so I never had a hard time looking for shoes for them.

Last night, I web chat with them and showed them all shoes I bought and they were all so happy and excited to have them. I also asked them on what else do they want me to buy for them. My sisters want tanks and camis because the weather in the Philippines is too hot. I told them that I already knew the perfect store where I could get them. My mom wahts an outfit that will match the shoes I got for her while my dad wants new socks and denim shorts. Aside from those, I am also thinking of sending them chocolates, perfumes and purses, but, I will not going to tell it to them as I want to surprise them :)

Oh! I wish I could see their reactions as soon as they opened the Balikbayan box that I will be sending.

I won in Bingo!

I was so flabbergasted last Saturday when I went to the festival with my husband and son. We played Bingo and I won 4 games out of 8 games we played! My husband and I could not believe how lucky I was that night. We won $40 which paid off our dinner and ticket rides of my son. Wow! Until now, I could not believe how that happened hehe.

Mom knows best

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I was tired of paying high phone bills so I looked for a reliable and affordable phone provider. Today, every penny counts and I wanted to save as much as I could because I am going to have two sons pretty soon. It's a good thing my mother-in-law gave me this Straight Talk phone. I could not believe how much money I saved. My phone bill was cut in half! Another good thing about Straight Talk is there is no contract at all.

I am under this "All you need plan" which I get unlimited call, text, picture messaging and web access for only $45 a month. So, all in all, in Straight Talk, you get everything you need. I can also call a friend anytime I want because of its wide range coverage. In terms of long distance, I could make a long distance call at a very low cost which I am happy about because through this, I could save a lot more compared to the provider I had. I found more information about Straight Talk from this video.

If you do not believe how good the coverage of Straight Talk is, watch this video testimonial made by another

Straight Talk customer.

As for me, I am really happy with the phone I have now, especially since I do not pay nearly as much for phone bills. I am so glad that my mother-in-law gave me this phone. It is truly mom knows best.

Looking for a dentist

My son has a chipped front tooth and my husband wanted to see a dentist for him. I told him that I think our son is too young to see a dentist but he persuaded me by telling me that the dentist would educate us how we could prevent him from chipping it again and a dentist would teach us proper dental care for babies.

Last month, we decided to find a dentist and make an appointment. When we arrived at the dentist's office, I observed that the office was nice and clean, also, the staff were friendly and accommodating. I filled out a form and was called right away. My son's behavior was quite impressive because he did not cry at all, probably because the dentist was nice and was friendly. After looking at my son's chipped front tooth, the dentist gave him stickers and a toothbrush as a reward for behaving. Oh! and my son was so happy that he could not wait to get home to use his new toothbrush.

On our way home, I talked to my husband and told him that he was right. Going to that dental appointment gave me tips and ideas how to take care of babies teeth. I also got ideas how to make brushing teeth more fun for babies. I learned how to prevent tooth decay and how to avoid cavities for babies. I told my husband that I like our son's dentist and I want him to be our family dentist from now on.

Shopping day with my girlfriends

Last Sunday was the first time that my friends and I shopped all together. Our schedules won't normally jive all at the same time that is why sometimes one of us can not go. Last Sunday was awesome! It was a lot of fun! We went to one of our favorite store which is Kohl's then we proceeded to TjMaxx. Yeah! We are Maxxionista lol! After that, we eat then shopped again hehe. I hope to shop again with my girlfriends pretty soon!

Where to buy plus size clothing

We have this regular customer at work which I admire because even though she is a plus size woman with 2 kids, she dresses up pretty good. Most of her clothes are fashionable which makes her look younger and not so big. One time, during my breaktime, I couldn't stop myself to ask her on where does she buy her clothes. She said that she normally shop online. And I was like " Really? Because I do too!" She told me that she goes to where she buys plus size clothes. When I got home, I went to visit the website she told me and there I found the clothes that she was wearing that day.

The website sells variety of clothing mostly for plus size women. I was actually surprise how affordable prices they have and there I thought that our customer was wearing expensive branded clothes. The website is actually not just for plus size women because they also sell shoes, fragrances and jewelry for men and women. I enjoyed browsing the website specially the shoe section and probably I would purchase a pair of shoes for myself this coming week.

I am not a plus size woman but I am glad to discover this website because at least I know now on where to buy fashionable clothing for my plus size friends. So, the next time I see our customer, I'll thank her for shring this website to me.
