Thanksgiving 2011.

We celebrated this year's Thanksgiving at my sister's place in Illinois. I think it's been 2 years since the last time we were there. However, she visits me on few occasions this year. I love the food she prepared.

We did Black Friday shopping as well. We enjoyed it. We don't shop together very often so we miss bonding together through shopping. It's my first time to shop on Black Friday. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. We did not sleep but it was all worth it. We got great deals. It was great!

A possible move to the North

We might be moving to the northernmost part of the country before the year ends. I know. I know. This tropical girl will soon be braving the bitter cold winter that I have not ever experienced in my whole life. Well, depending on hubby’s job interview results. I am excited at the same time a little apprehensive with the extreme climate difference but I think I’ll survive, lol! We’ll be closer to Canada which I’ve always wanted to visit. I wonder if there will be good Calgary apartments in the area. I have friends to meet there if ever we decide to go. For sure, it'll be a good thing to find out before we start any of our travel escapades in the future.

On a different note, I would just like to say Congratulations to Manny Pacquiao for his recent boxing triumph. The fight was in Nevada. It made me think if we move, we may be able to watch his future fights live, I mean who knows, right? Though I personally think it might not be worth the travel expenses not to mention the price of the ticket, but like I've said, who knows? We might win the lottery or something, lol! Anyway, now I'm rambling! Have a great Monday, everyone!

Not just your ordinary day.

I guess I'm one of the few lucky wives who get white roses on birthdays, anniversaries or even no special occasion at all. I distinctly remember when I was on the 1st trimester of my pregnancy, it was such a miserable experience for me. I couldn't eat though I get hungry all the time. I was super nauseous, dizzy and sick. But hubby still has to go to work so I was kind of feeling sad and depressed. Then just one day, he surprised me with a flower delivery with a special note that says "You're not alone." Wow, that melts my heart! Hubby is just one of a kind. Truly, I feel special and blessed to have married such a wonderful man.

Home Sick

Guest post from: Mohamed Simon

I looked into directv medford on my computer to see what was available, and I'm so glad I did. I came down with a terrible cold and am nursing myself back to health in front of the tv! There is nothing worse than being sick in my opinion. I swear, I almost have an emotional breakdown every time because I get so tired of feeling so terrible! I've been doing everything I'm supposed to. Lots of vitamin C, and juice, and trying to rest. But, sometimes I feel so terrible it keeps me from being able to sleep. That is the absolute worst! The ONLY thing (and I mean the ONLY thing) that makes staying home sick half way decent is being able to watch some great tv! I've been re watching episodes of the Wire, which you've probably heard me go on about before. Best. Show. Ever. The writing. The character development. The insights into the complexities of the problems.

Indoors Girl

I appreciate the guest post, Jewel Rodgers.

Last night I was at a bar on the East Side of the city. I’ve made some new friends from the church I attend, and they’re what I like to call “hipsters.” They always know the places to be and look as though they just stepped out of an Urban Outfitters catalog. I’ve accepted the fact that I don’t exactly fit in with this crowd, but I like to think that they enjoy the contrast I offer. Last night everyone was talking about an upcoming music festival, which I was planning to attend, when they mentioned tents. Yes, tents. I hesitated at first and then thought it would be best to get it out in the open, I’m an indoors girl. I don’t go anywhere that doesn’t give me access to a microwave, blowdryer, EXPERTsatellite … The one and only time I camped was at a birthday party in the 4th grade. It lasted for all of an hour when I decided to forge though the darkness and walk four houses down so that I could sleep in my own bed. If this music festival camping is some sort of initiation, I’ve already failed. And I’m completely fine with that.
