This coach purse is normally worth $338, it was on sale for $229.99. Paid for it for only $99.64; saving 70% the sale price...sweet! Hubby told me that it would be my gift and that I need to wrap it :-).

As you can see in the background, hubby was busy looking for a hat.
I've tried this hat, but didn't buy it. I liked it, but 40 bucks is too much for a cowboy hat.

Two friends were walking through the desert. At some point they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other in the face. The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, wrote in the sand:
"TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE." They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where they decided to go for a swim. The one who had been slapped started to drown, but his friend saved him. After he recovered from the near drowning, he wrote on a stone:
"TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE." The one who had first slapped and later saved his friend said, "After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now, you write on a stone, why?" His friend replied: "When a friend hurts us we should write it down in sand where the winds of forgiveness can erase it away. But, when a friend does something good for us, we should engrave it in stone where no wind can ever erase it."
I know I can't cry over spilled milk, but what can I do? It makes me feel bad and sad every time I think about it. It is new and not even a year old when I broke it. I wonder if my brother can fix it. He is good on fixing small appliances and gadgets like this one. I better ask him next time I talk to him.

There is no such thing as perfect couple and marriage; misunderstanding happens, wrong decision has been made, but know that these are part of married life. Matt and I are not exempted to these, but because of our trust, faith and loyalty with each other, our love for each other are intact. There is no checking of pockets, cellphone, emails or even sniffing clothes. No blaming or nagging. If you find yourself doing these things, that is a clear indication that trust, faith and loyalty are not there; therefore there is no love in your relationship....and that is something to think and worry about...time for both of you to work things out if you are to save your marriage.

Check out the list of five fashion staples that will take you through each season.
There’s always something we’re dying to have at the start of a new season. If you stock up on versatile basics, then you can augment with affordable versions of the trends you love. Here with The Thread checklist of the five pieces you must have in your closet:
1. A Little Black Dress. It can be any shape, any sleeve length, but you need to have at least one of these, preferably one made with a jersey fabric that you can throw in the washing machine for easy, affordable care.
2. A White Button-down. An American classic—this is one of my favorite summer looks. A button down and jeans shorts.
3. Dark Trouser Jeans. Fits and washes go in and out of style but trouser cuts are always classic and classy! They’re also the most universally flattering.
4. A Bright, Lightweight Scarf. This is not just a winter item—gauzy summer scarves dress up t-shirts and help battle frigid office air-conditioning!
5. A Grey Merino Sweater. Grey is the new black AND the new white. It’s a neutral that looks good with virtually every complexion.

Originating from Africa, African Violets are probably the best known flowering house plants. African violets feature velvety leaves arranged in a circular pattern, with blooms forming at the crown. There are hundreds of different varieties of African violets available featuring differently colored flowers, and differently variegated flowers and leaves. In order to initiate blooming, make sure your African violet gets proper light. Also, African violets bloom best when slightly pot bound. To keep your African violet looking its best, remove dead flowers and leaves.
The Geranium Stardom Red, 'Pelargonium x hybrids', exhibits beautiful red flowers. Stardom geraniums, also known as floribundas, have double flowers which emerge early, and they produce many more flowers than zonal geraniums on spreading branches. Stardom geraniums are self-branching, requiring no pinching or growth regulators. One of the best kept secrets about Stardom geraniums is their garden performance as a groundcover in the landscape setting. Geraniums are one of your best choices for use in hanging baskets. Plant in ordinary well-drained soil. Over fertilization results in excessive foliage and few flowers. Fertilize lightly every 2 weeks. Pinching of the shoots will promote bushiness Remove spent flowers to enhance flowering.
Native to every continent except Antartica, orchids are one of the most elegant and recognizable exotic blooms. There are over 25,000 recognized orchid varieties, and many more hybrids not named. Although orchids have a reputation as being difficult to grow, they are actually quite easy to care for as houseplants, especially Phalaeonopsis. It is best to keep them near windows where they can receive indirect sunlight.

Matt and I have the same hobbies which are watching movies and shows on the t.v. We watch comedies like George Lopez and The King of Queens :-); and movies on Hallmark channel; and play board games. Scrabble, Zingo, Sorry, Monopoly are few of our favorites. We don't order pizza though as others do, but have pop corn instead. Going to the park and have picnics. is our second fave hobby....yup, we bring our lunch and enjoy watching people fishing, playing ball games or swimming. I blog...where I earn money and he read news on the net instead of buying newspapers which cost a fortune nowadays....hello! Taking a nap and cooking and eating :-) are two of our hobbies, too :-). Tell me, are they inexpensive or what!? I must admit sometimes we do a lot of driving on the countryside and that sometimes costs us money...oh well as long as we enjoyed that trip, who cares...it doesn't happen all the time anyway. Hubby's own fave hobby is working at his garage while I decorate the house and rearrange furniture :-).
What about you? Share us your hobbies by clicking the badge above. Happy weekend!

With all my heart I urge you not to look to contemporary culture for your role models and mentors. Please look to your faithful mothers for a pattern to follow. Model yourselves after them, not after celebrities whose standards are not the Lord's standards and whose values may not reflect an eternal perspective.

Hubby and son don't get sick a lot and when they do, I panic and become very hysterical....and it makes hubby sicker. So he always tells me to calm down and relax, it isn't very serious! I am very protective of my loved ones and if only I could take the pain or sickness out of them, I would take it or I'd rather suffer for their pain than seeing them hurt. Anyway, talking about getting sick, Matt is a loving, sweet and thoughtful person who would do everything in his power to make sure that I/we are okay. He knows every doctor's appointment I have and make sure I don't miss it. He reminds me on when to refill my prescriptions, takes my medicines on time, gives me an insulin shots every night and if he forgets it, he would wake up to make sure everything is done.
He is very good in hiding his feeling when I am sick. When I had an abdominal surgery due to infection from c-sectionsix years ago, my health deteriorated and he told me that seeing me with tubes in my nose, IV, tubes on my sides, tummy and a catheter all at the same time, he thought I was going to die and he was very scared. I tell you, he lost a lot of weight from stress and worries I caused him. He was very happy when everyhting went well after a month stayed at the hospital. To make this short, we both take care of each other when we are sick. Give each other assurance that we will be well.
