Bonding with Pinays at Bull Shoals Lake

I know it's been a while since I've shared some interesting personal posts here on my blog. I don't want to make excuses so I will flat out admit that I kind of lose interest in blogging for a while. It could be from the crazy hormones brought by my pregnancy, nonetheless, I couldn't give up blogging for good. I just hope that despite my long absence, I still have readers and loyal friends who would still find the interest to know the latest about me.

I'm sure I have mentioned before that I found new Filipina friends in town. We still keep in touch every once in a while. A month ago, they gave me a surprise visit and asked if I would love to join them swim and hang out in Bull Shoals Lake. I can't swim and I have no interest to even jump in the water especially in my condition but I know I would enjoy being with familiar faces and to get out of the house once in a while. So I didn't think twice, I joined them. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough time to get ready. I just put on some clean clothes and off we went. I offered to be their official photographer on that day since I don't want to swim anyway and was not in the mood to be included in the picture taking, lol. So sorry you can't find me in the photos. But I promise to share some latest pics of me soon to give you an idea how bigger I have become, hehe. Anyway, I was glad I got out of the house and breathe some fresh air. The weather was awesome on that day, it wasn't too hot for me. I made hubby a little worried though because it was impromptu and he was at work so he came home with an empty house. I called home a few minutes after he arrived from work so everything was cleared up. I don't go out alone that often so he worries a lot but he likes for me to have fun with Filipinas even without him.

Oops, one night I crave for pusit and nilat-ang baboy so I made some for dinner. It was yummy. Glad I have the energy lately to cook some foods that I crave.

Glad to see you're out of the house and enjoying your pregnancy along with some good friends! The lake looks like a totally neat place to relax and have a picnic (or BBQ)! I'd be the first one to dive in and the last to come out. LOL. Oh, and the food looks Y U M M Y! Good thing you went, because you can enjoy being with friends and eating delicious food.
