And I have started shopping with coupons...once tasted always wanted. Who doesn't love good deals darling?;-) Thank you Krazy Coupon Lady I have learned so much from you. I'm a new at this so I am reading it slowly. The when I got it I decided to list down what I want and what I needed then headed to Walgreens and CVS this week.
I'm so proud of my good buy from Walgreens. I got a 14 count W Maxi Overnights pads. Actually bought for $2 then got a registered rewards(RR) for $2 which means it's free!
I also got a balance bar for $1.50 and got another RR for $1.50 that's another free!
I got 2 SoftSoap Body Wash with $2 in store coupon, a .50, .75, and .25 manufacturer's coupon. I ended up paying 1.25 for each body wash. How cool is that! I also got a kettle corn potato chips on sale for 1.99 and I got a $1 coupon so I ended up paying .99 cent for that. I was able to use my RR for some spices that were on sale for .79 cents each.
We went to CVS and grab some Theraflu on sale for $5.50. I have a $3 coupon if you buy 2 from Smartsource. On top of that earned $3 Extra Bucks. Final price for this is $2. I also bought olay cleansing cloth on sale for 3.99 with $2 off smartsource coupon. I ended up paying 1.99 only...cool deal. The Glade Sense and Spray is on sale for $6 and I have a $3 coupon so I paid $3 only regular price is 11.29.
I'm glad I am really learning.

The small bumps are growing only at the back of my thighs so I could not say it is chicken pox or anything. What could it be? I exercise almost everyday and my thighs sweat too much. I tried to use calming itch lotion but it does not seem to work. I showered with very hot water to fight the itch but the itch comes back after I shower. I also took some allergy medicine just to make sure. I already called my mom about my dilemma and she advised me to use Natural Soap when in the shower. It keeps the skin soft and smooth. It will also keep the dryness and the itch away. I know mothers know best when it comes to our health. I hope this works because I am really so done with this. Oh well this is better than a flu or something worse.
Do you have any known remedy for itchy dry skin?
I told you the gym's weighing scale is broken. Weeks ago I kept using it and I wondered why I never lost weight and to make things worse I weighed 5 lbs more than I thought I was. How did I knew this? I already have a sneakin' suspicion on that and even the other gym users. I tried to convince hubby to get me a weighing scale for our house. Just last night we bought a new weighing scale for our house. I wanted a basic weighing scale less than 10 bucks but hubby insisted to buy the other one. It was on sale for 5 bucks off the original price. I was so excited because I was a lot more lighter than the other weighing scale. I'm so glad we bought our new weighing scale.

At one time hubby lived in an apartment in Memphis. He was a good tenant. He always pay his apartment bill on time. When he left the apartment we even went back to clean it. To make the story short when he left the landlord ran after him for some bills charged to him for burning the carpet or something like that. I thought it's ridiculous. Wherever we go they always write him and tell him to pay. At first he just ignored it then the next he felt really irritated. It's surprising how they get a way knowing where you live. For sure there is a law to protect a good paying tenant from all of this. I felt he is being harassed. This is an unfair and deceptive debt collection practice that a frugal man has encountered.

I admit I am an adventurer and I love to travel a lot. Just this year we have been to Disney World Florida and to more than a couple islands in the Philippines for vacation. I always make a point to drag my family with me especially the kids. They should not miss the fun and the learning experience in being able to see places. As I have mentioned in my earlier post we have tried to explore the local area- downtown Greenville. There are so many more places I in my bucket list.
I would love to have Jaca Costa Rica Vacations on our fifth wedding anniversary. The lush tropical greens, the white sand beaches and the crystal blue waters reminds me of home away from home. I'm so going to this lovely destination.
Hubby is entitled to some vacation leave so we definitely can use that. For now we will try to save some money to be able to go on a grand vacation. I hope and pray for this to happen. Tell me is it too much to ask for?

Greenville SC has a lot of beautiful parks to enjoy. I'm living and loving it here. Last Friday we went to downtown Greenville to explore it. We walked 6-8 blocks and saw a lot of stores and restaurants. I felt good to be able to do this with my family. We also explored Falls Park. It's amazing that you can come in this pretty park for free. It has an awesome waterfalls and and amazing place to walk around. Well you get to pay if you do certain activities like photography and weddings which i think is fair enough. We did see a couple in the park and in one hotel too. I brought some snacks for the kids to munch. We ate lunch at a Mexican restaurant called Cantiflas. Hubby and I ordered steak con chile. It's a hot steak strips fajitas. We went home tires but so glad we discovered something new.

We usually dine out on Friday nights. It's a treat for me for cooking on weekdays. It is also a little break for me from being a busy housewife. Tonight is a little bit different because we opted to just cook something for dinner. I wonder what's for dinner since this isn't the usual plan. I have to find an easy recipe so we can have a good dinner even when we are just home. I wanted hubby to make spaghetti but he saw some pork chop meats being thawed. I didn't place it on the sink so I wondered who did. The first plan was this hubby will make dinner but now I have to do it because somebody left the porkchops on the sink. Oh well he will make one on Sunday so that's fine with me. I will stir fry some cabbage to go with that to have a well-balanced dinner. Hubby volunteered to make some cake for dessert so I am happy with that.
Tomorrow is a family day for us. We will go downtown Greenville to sightsee. I heard it's pretty there. There is a beautiful park downtown called Falls Park where a suspension bridge for pedestrians is constructed. We can also walk around downtown to explore. We will also have dinner there instead of eating out today. I am looking forward to tomorrow's activity.

My daughter is is a little bit shy but she is sweet, kind and friendly. In our four year of living here she is coping well with adjustment in living here. Day by day she has gained friends that she wanted to regularly communicate with. She also have a bestfriend who loves to call her and talk with her all the time. She hails from the last state we lived in- New Jersey. Her name is Madi. They're like Hook, line and sinker. I want their friendship to last a long long time that is why I need an extra phone. A phone with no contracts and no surprise bills. A phone that she can use to Call a friend.
Searching for the best phone online I came across Straight Talk. It has a great nationwide coverage and excellent reception. You have a choice to be able to get a prepaid or postpaid from them .The prepaid one is best for her and it is just exactly what I am looking for. Furthermore they have a wide variety of trusted manufacturer phones. The best one I am excited to get is the Samsung Precedent powered by Android. With Android on Straight Talk you can do a thousand things. How cools is that? I'm excited. How about you do you Straight Talk?

After living in Aiken for just a week hubby found another job in Greenville so we moved again. For some people they would not understand why we keep moving but hubby is a contract worker. He is a structural designer so life is always on the road. I already explained it to the kids that we need to keep moving for survival. However we have our retirement home in Maryland and someday when hubby retires that's where we will live for good.

I would never forget the day I came to the US with my two kids. They were so small then ages 5 and 6. Now they are 9 and 10. It doesn't seem so long ago but they grew up so fast and so soon. September 9th is our 4- year in the US and September 14th is our 4th wedding anniversary. Happy Anniversary honey! It seemed like we just got married yesterday. We've fought and make up and I admit you spoiled me like a brat but most of the time we get along well that's what I am so proud of. I treasure our love and togetherness my love.
He asked me what gift I would want to have on our special day and I can not even think of one. We just got back from our Philippine vacation. He has given me an htc sensation android phone lately which I think is too expensive for a phone. Oh well it does a lot of things that makes me a happy bee. So what more should I asked for?
I really love it when I start thinking about a plan and after I've done all the planning, I execute it like a pro. Yep, you could say that I am quite the planhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifner. But I don't think that's a bad thing at all! It's actually a really great idea. As soon as they released the full list http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifof all the Fashion's Night Out events, I decided that it would be a really great idea to start making out my schedule. Basically, I want to see as much stuff as possible without sacrificing any quality of fun.
When I was looking online to find all of the events, I ran across some info on internet packages and after I showed more info to my roommates, we decided to switch over our service to it.
I think out of all the things I went to, my favorite Fashion's Night Out event was Seth Meyers from SNL bartending at Coach. That was so much fun! I also picked up this too-cute bag there while I was in the store, which I guess is the point of the night.

Yesterday we started searching for a Flat Screen TV for the living room. We went to Walmart and Best Buy since they have a lot of brands to choose from in the area. There were a lot of home entertainment that would amaze you but all we wanted is an energy efficient tv and something that would fit in our small living room corner. We will move our older tv that we are currently using right now to the kid's room when we will be able to buy our new flat screen tv soon. I am excited on getting our new tv on payday.
