For Late Bloomers and Fruit-bearers

I've been washing dishes, wiping my kids' boogers and letting my husband take over my life for way too long already (oh wait, my husband would say otherwise, it may be the other way around)!  Of course,there's nothing wrong about all these, I'm a mom, it never was an accident, never was a decision, it was God's plan all along.

Get More Bang for Your Buck at Terraz' Payday Buffet

So, I was like asking some friends over at Messenger about payday.  It has been a long time that I haven't experienced a full-pledged salary on a regular basis so I'm not so adept on how it is when the 15th or the 30th of the month come.

Discovering Socrates' Secret and Crappy Photos That Makes Me Disreputable

Being tagged along by the hubby (perhaps as his muse) in one of his business meetings had become very heart-stirring.  So, whenever that happens, I make sure to have the handy-dandy Google Map on side.  And how truly neat it is to search for places of interest along the long drive to either Cavite or Laguna while being stuck on traffic.

Break-away from the Usual Tagaytay Habit at Yoki's Farm

I have been feeling a tad disgruntled with my husband since Valentines Day.

However, I tried to ignore what I've been feeling and focused on my plan for a quick get-away to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary.  So, I pledged a little budget for this, but made sure I wasn't breaking the bank.
