Today Is Going To Be a Great Day

April 28, 2013

Well, only 3 days left before the end of April and I know we are all looking forward for the summer to come. The weather has been weird lately and the other day we had severe storms. Finally today, I saw the sun shinning through our window and I want to get out from the house and do something fun. Speaking of fun, just last week we watched the NASCAR Sprint Cup STP 400 at the Kansas Speedway and we all loved it. 

All the race car drivers drove the cars very fast and I am amazed every time the car passed where we sat at. Very loud even though we are all wearing earplugs. My son, Charles was very excited when he saw the number 2 race car of his favorite driver, Brad Keselowski. Of course we saw all the drivers before the race began when they were on their way to their respective race cars. Though the one that hit the jackpot was Charles.  

My husband, Doug bought a couple of NASCAR cars and other collectibles for Charles especially from his favorite driver Brad Keselowski. Watching NASCAR Sprint Cup race last week makes us wants to watch another race in October though it would be great if we can get more free tickets. I like the atmosphere at the racetrack and the people seems very nice even though we are pulling for different drivers. Charles did a great job during our first NASCAR Sprint Cup race even though he fell asleep for about 40 minutes during the race. Well, we got up too early then. 

We really had a great time and Charles got to play with his aunt Connie and they had so much fun playing. Anyway, today I am planning to use my Dillard’s gift card and Victoria’s Secret rewards cards. I have 2 Victoria’s Secret rewards cards and if I don’t use them they will go to waste. Today, is Hero Appreciation Day offered by Krispy Kreme and I have my coupon to buy any dozen, and get a second dozen original glazed doughnuts for free. Surely, today is going to be a great day for us.

Hot Light App from Krispy Kreme

April 16, 2013

I only have a few apps on my iPhone but the one that I am looking forward to is the Hot Light app from Krispy Kreme. Having the Hot Light app means I know when they have hot doughnuts and I would love to have glazed doughnuts which are my favorite and Charles’ as well. Last night, when I installed the app on my iPhone my husband thought I really wanted some doughnuts though he can’t eat them anymore. He’s watching on his food intake and sweets are not good for him. Being a diabetic makes him feel really sad especially now that he can’t eat all the foods that he really likes. Just the other day, my husband, Doug had his checkup and the result was good though it would be better to hear it was great. 

Well, last night I was laying in bed wide awake when I remembered fiesta celebration is less than a month away. It has been a long time that I wasn’t around with my loved ones during fiesta and I know I am missing a lot of great memories from the past. It may not be the happiest memories for other people around me but for me those are great ones and I will cherish them all forever. With so many things I miss in the Philippines it makes me smile when someone posts pictures on Facebook of people that I know before. 

Most of them are getting older and some closest family friends have passed away. Anyway, Spring has finally sprung. The flowers are blossoming and I can see the leaves beginning to grow from the trees. Since my husband has nothing to do over the weekend I would love to drive around down to Beaver Lake. Driving down to Beaver Lake is very scenic specially at this time of the year. The trees are very pretty to look at and I am always ecstatic to see the beauty of nature.

CV Joints

When we first bought our BMW X5 four years ago we took it into a mechanic we had used to give it a check over. There were not many problems but one was a torn CV Boot. If you are not familiar with CV Joints they are vital to the driveshaft of your vehicles. You cannot skimp on having the best CV Joint in your vehicle.  Luckily, our mechanic pointed out the problem along with a front end alignment which allowed us to get the dealer to repair those items before we bought the car. 

Now, that we are looking to buy another car this summer I wonder what else I will have to become knowledgeable about. This summer we are also looking at building a new structure on our property. We are looking to add an out shed that will be metal and used to store our tools and Charles’ big cars. We will get a Metal Fabrication estimate to custom make this new structure.

My Flea Market Finds

April 08, 2013

Way back in 2008 Doug always took me to Antique Stores, and Flea Markets and I hated almost every time. Now, going to Antique Stores, and Flea Markets makes me very interested at looking in every booth hoping to find something that catches my eyes. Last Friday, I went to the Flea Market here in town and I got excited when I found the rose flowers for just $1.99 and vase for just $1. We hardly buy fresh flowers for the house because my husband, Doug has allergy and he keeps on sneezing. 


I know I can find much cheaper items at garage sales but as of now I don’t feel like getting up early in the morning and looking for garage sales. The other reason why we look around at Antique Stores, and Flea Market is to look for Charles NASCAR Cars collection. Charles has nearly 200 NASCAR cars now.

Married to Medicine on Bravo

April 01, 2013

With so many shows to watch on television I can’t get enough of Bravo’s, Married to Medicine. Two housewives are Medical Doctor and other housewives are married to an MD as well. One of the housewives, Quad Webb-Lunceford, has a very strong personality though she is quite funny to watch. Last night, Quad was guest of Watch What Happens: Live on Bravo and she was hilarious. Aside from Married to Medicine, I am also looking forward for the season premiere of The Real Housewives of Orange County tonight and Don’t Be Tardy, airing this April 16 on Bravo. 

Anyway, three of my magazine subscriptions are going to expire this June and I am not planning to renew 2 of them even though I still have rewards points to use with my Coke Rewards. I am not really impressed with either  Bon Appetit and Cooking Delight Magazines as it doesn‘t show a lot of pictures of the food recipes in the magazine. Well, it has been a long time since I have received any tasks from one of my favorite publishing sites. Its kind of disappointing knowing I still have $37 due to me and I need to wait until I reach $50 before they can send out my payments.
