Sweet Saturday #:1 Silly Wife

These are photos of me and my husband at Fort Worth Botanical Garden last year. I love it when the husband bring us somewhere just so we can get away from the house for a while during the weekend. I need a break from staring at  four walls of the house so you can only imagine how happy and appreciative I am when we can get to breathe some fresh air. Also it is how we spend family time together with all the roses and chirping birds with our kid.

Photos below show how silly I am with my husband. And he is the complete opposite. He is an American but he doesn't like PDA or public display of affection. He is a traditional gentleman that doesn't even kiss in public, lolz!

Couples Corner #: 2 When He Doesn't Like The Food I Cook

I know my husband very well. He is a gentleman and when he doesn't like things, he would complain only if it involves other people but when it comes to me, I hear no complaining from him, of course he did complain one time about the smell when I cooked dried fish and I didn't clean up the mess afterwards. As to my cooking, he would eat whatever I serve for him. Although he doesn't always eat Filipino foods but when I intentionally cook for all of us, he would eat it and give me compliments if he really likes it. But if not, he would just stay quiet.

There was an instance years back, it was when I first came here in America. I cooked bitter melon with eggs for our breakfast and you know paliya as we call it, it's so bitter that not all people can stand its he did eat what's on his plate but guess what? HE DIDN'T BOTHER TO CHEW THE PALIYA instead just jam it in his mouth and swallow it! It made me laugh watching him and when he was done, I asked why he did that? He said it was too bitter for him so to make it disappear fast, he just swallow it without chewing! Since that incident I never gave him my bitter melon ever again!

Rotten Smell?

I was laughing so hard with my husband last night because for the first time in history I heard him complaining about the smell of the kitchen. He asked as if talking to himself saying, "what is that rotten smell in the kitchen?". I heard it and I answered him back, well, too bad for you. You're the only American in this house that find it stinky. Jadyn and I love dried fish that is why the smell doesn't bother us. Look straight in front of you, that's what stinks but we love it a lot!

He complained because it really is stinky there. I normally clean the stove right after I cook dried fish but yesterday I just left it unclean with all the oil that's been there since in the morning. I really thought he is not bothered with the stink because of the 6 years we've been together, I never heard him complaining about me cooking buwad!

A Good Joke Worth Sharing

I apologize for I have nothing to do this very early morning so I am sharing to you all this very good joke I have in my personal e-mail. Hope you have a good laugh after reading this and seeing the picture in the bottom! Have a nice Tuesday everyone!

Dear Family and Friends, 
Most of you know I went in for a surgical procedure for a Butt Lift at the WalMart Medical Center . I didn't have the most pleasant experience. I should've left well enough alone. 

I wanted to show you how it turned out. I hope this keeps YOU from having this done. 

Please, PLEASE, PLEASE . . Don't get a Butt Lift at the WalMart Medical Center . You will most certainly regret it !!!
Love, Mabel

Church On Easter

I haven't been to church since I came back from my vacation in the Philippines and that was 3 months ago. My soul hungered for God's word and love, my flesh needed food to keep me going. I could no longer hold it so I needed to have something to strengthen me so my spirit can continue to live and the cure for hunger and thirst is for me to visit the church. Asked for forgiveness for not being able to hear spiritual food, God's word that is for so long and now I am good.

I should have no excuse in going to church for we live close to church. But how come I let several Sundays to pass by to realize that I missed the food for my soul? Easter Sunday, Jesus has risen and resurrected and I was there! Thank You Lord for giving me the strength and worship you today. I feel fulfilled spiritually now that I was able to celebrate Easter with You.

CC #: 1 How Do I Annoy Him?

Rodliz’s Nest

I been meaning to join this meme for so long but for some reason I keep forgetting making an entry for this one, so today... comes the very first submission I have for this meme.

My husband is reserved and quiet person and I am the opposite. I love to talk nonsense. The way to annoy him is when he need that peace and quiet at home especially when it's movie time and I make a noise, that surely would piss him off. Another thing that could annoy him is me just grabbing/touching his tits without warning. He said, it's okay to touch tits when it's sex time but if it is just ordinary time, he doesn't want that simply because he doesn't like the feel of my finger in them, haha!

How about you couples out there? What are sort of things that can annoy your better half? Share it here, I wanna read it!

Q2. Has a commercial ever changed your mind about a celebrity or spokesperson?
~~~ Nope!

Family Bonding

The weekends are my most favorite days of the week maybe because I look forward to going out not in a special place but away from the house for just an hour or two. Only during weekends we can do things together as a family because my husband works four days during the week. We do have a little bonding in the house every night though but family bonding we have on weekends is longer and more fun.

When there is a place to go where the three of us could enjoy, we would do that. I am glad I have a husband who spend time with his family rather than ignoring us or spending it with other people. Well, he has no other friends that he'd hangout in the first place so he has nowhere to turn to, but us lolz..

Anyway, we had such a blast at the 2011 Fort Worth Air Expo in NAS JRB Carswell yesterday. Our little girl was able to touch the planes that are in the base and saw flying planes making a show including the Blue Angels. Here are some snaps of us!
