Got Good Deals On Fall Decor

Fall Blessings decor and game day cups

Window shopping is one of my hobbies.  Whenever I go to a store, I just kinda browse the departments.  If there's a good deal and if prices are tremendously reasonable on the items I need, I consider buying them without remorse. :)  I only paid only $.70 the Blessings owl on pumpkin decor and the fall game day cups at Dollar General.  

The owl on pumpkin decor will look great on our front door in the Fall. :)

Too Beautiful To Ignore

Happy summer! How was it so far? Are you enjoying the colors of nature? I hope you enjoy the outdoors a lot!

We go to the library every week. And these flowers inside and outside the library are just too beautiful to ignore.

Possible Career in Landscaping?

One of my dear friends, who lives in a nearby town close to me, is moving.  She and her family are moving to Houston. She said it's a work-related move so she has no choice. Haha! 

Kidding aside, they are listing their home for sale in the market.  So I came over to help her pack and get the landscape look pretty and presentable. It was hard work. But with the help of some of our friends, we did it. 

When you have a house for sale it is very necessary to include cleaning and beautifying the yard.  Now, can this be my part time job?  Landscaping?

It was a joyful day.

Spring Fever Hits Today

Amaryllis bulb.  Blooming so fast.

I am having a Spring fever.  My friend bought a few pieces of Amaryllis bulb kit in pots few weeks ago.  They were sold very cheap at the store so I asked my friend to buy me one.

I didn't realize that the bulb will sprout very quickly.  I did not plant the bulb right away after I bought it.  My husband was curious what's in the pot so he checked on it and tried to feel what's in the package.  He said he felt something weird in there.  So I decided to plant it following the instructions in the kit.  Sure does the bulb has sprouted (picture 1).  It was very amazing.  The next few days the plant was completely upright with flower buds (picture 2).  We're so happy.

And here it is in full bloom.   There sure is a season for every thing.

Trying to capture a time lapse video of the bloom.

Arts And Green Experience At Northpark Center In Dallas

Northpark Center-Dallas

We went to Northpark Center in Dallas last week after DD's field trip.  We had a lot of time to spare so decided to do some sightseeing inside the mall. It was our very first time there. We were so amazed of the art structures and real plants in the lobbies. 

"It was an awesome new mall experience,"she said.

I loved the flowers and the little duck pond in front of Neiman Marcus store.

Pineapple Juice and Skittles

Pineapple juice and Skittles
I enjoy couponing.  I save money on the products I need.  Sometimes I shop and get good deals on items like apparel, shoes, home goods, and accessories.  Most of these items are gifts for my family and friends in the Philippines.  

What's amazing is that, I get/receive coupons and I use them to pay for food or drinks that I like.

Laundry Days

Mondays and Tuesdays are laundry days for me. If I have to go to school one of those days or both or all week, I do Wednesday and Thursday, or two weeknights. Laundry on weekends is seldom.
