The Outfit Test

When I was a kid, I hate wearing dresses. I don't feel like I am comfortable wearing them. I prefer wearing shirt and shorts. Then when I am finally grown, my taste for fashion changed. I was browsing other blogs today and saw this post - The Outfit Test from Ivy's Towts4u. I decided to take the test and below is the result. What about you? What outfit says about you?

Your Outfit Says You're Chic

Your style is very sophisticated and elegant.

Even if you're wearing jeans, you still know how to look classy.

You are enchanting and mysterious. You take your image seriously.

You are glamorous in a delightfully old-fashioned way.

Your high end fashion designer match: Nanette Lepore

Your must have accessory: Long gloves

Blog Makeover!

I have been blogging for quite sometime now. Honestly, I envied those bloggers who have nice blog layout. Looking back, I only depend on the free layouts offered by or other websites that offer free and easy to install layouts. All I want is to have my own unique layout. And if you have noticed, I just had a blog makeover and I am lovin' it!

Recently, I contacted Ivy - The Designer Chic for a blog makeover. I tell you what, the experience wasn't easy! I have to think about the color that will personally reflect my personality and my blog's title. I got tied up thinking what would be the best color that would match for my customized header. I leave it all to her. She's pretty good at it and very creative. Thank you girl for keeping up with my demands. Thank you for your big patience whenever I contradict your idea. Thank you for your amazing talent!

I apologize to all my friends and online bloggers because when I changed my layout, the links to my list of bloggers were completely lost. I will add you all back to my blogroll. Just be patient with me as I am a little bit slow when adding because as of now, I am still overwhelmed with joy to my new blog layout. Happy blogging everyone!

My White Christmas

So I guess, this is what they call white Christmas. Spending Christmas here in North Dakota is actually my first ever white Christmas. Isn't that cool? Oh yeah! It is not only cool but it is very cold. The temperature is below zero degrees, meaning it's negative below zero. I know that some of you hate being in a cold weather and I thought I wouldn't survive the harsh weather here but hey, I am still here. Maybe there were days that we have to stay home when blizzard strikes but when the sun is up and shining, all we have to do is get up, put on our comfy-warm coats and boots then we are good to go to enjoy the winter.

Today, I am celebrating Christmas for the 3rd time together with my husband. We celebrated our 1st Christmas together back in the Philippines in my hometown. The 2nd time was in Kentucky and for this year, we celebrated it in Devil's Lake, North Dakota. The original plan was, to just stay home since we heard in the news that they will give us some snow tonight. But what the heck, it is Christmas time and we will celebrate it just like what we wanted. We drove carefully going to Devil's Lake, watched some people enjoying the ice fishing. We went to Spirit Lake Casino and Hotel and grabbed a delicious buffet. I wish everyone a very happy Christmas. God Bless you all.

Where Did They Go?

I was feeling excited today when I saw all 10 opportunities in front of me waiting to be reviewed. So I started choosing the easiest one and made a post about it. After submitting my post and ready for a new opportunity to write, I was devastated they are all gone. I mean, all my excitement for getting opportunities vanished so quickly. I have been wanting to write a review about a certain opportunity and now that I have them on hand, I can't even see them now. What had just happened?

I wish they all come back as I am ready to blog again. I have been away for several days and surely I miss blogging and catching opportunities. It is my way of getting monetary reward and now I am feeling sad because all other 9 opportunities I have are all gone. Baby come back!

You are a homebody.
Home is the place where you can truly be yourself.

You are likely to wear pajamas a lot.
In fact, you often change into your pj's the minute you get home!

No Internet Service and the Snow

So tomorrow, I will have no internet service. It means, I won't be here to blog, visit your blog or drop any entrecard. I wish I could but the only thing I can do is to be patient and wait until I can get back to my blogging. For sure, I won't be checking my mails and be able to chat with my family and friends. But I will be back soon. I just don't know when.

It is getting colder and colder here. For the past few days, we stayed home and watch TV. The only time we can get out of the house is when we need something in Wal-Mart which is just 3 miles away from our house. Luckily, I have my husband with me who's an expert driving in the snow. He don't seem bothered driving as long as I remind him to be careful always when we go out. Few more snow showers and I am ready to play outside to make my big snowman.

Will I Go or Not?

Right now, I am still thinking if I will go to the Filipino gathering in Fargo, ND. It is actually a Christmas party that will be hosted by a Filipina living in the largest city of North Dakota. I am still waiting for the call of the Filipina - Maria I met few weeks ago in a Catholic church. She said, if she will call, we might have to go.We are still watching what would be the weather tomorrow. I am wishing it will not snow so it is just easy for us to drive going Fargo.

I have to bring food to share to everybody for tomorrow's Christmas party. It is called Adobo Chicken Wings with Lemon. I still don't have any idea what gift I will give for gift-giving tomorrow. It is worth $20. I know I can find something with $20 but I am picky in regards of gift-giving. I want something they can use and will last long, maybe a kitchen utensil or a food warmer will be good. At this time, I am still waiting for Maria's call. I don't want any rush so I can still have time to prepare the food I am going to share at the party. Wish she will call me soon. If not, me and the husband have something to do tomorrow.

Photo on the Spot!

I love taking pictures and save them. This time, Jerlalou from San Diego, CA sent me this "Shot on the Spot" tag. It was quite disturbing taking picture of myself without make-up, no brushing of teeth, no combing of hair or even washing my face. I am still in my pajamas! Yikes! Let's see how do I look after waking up...

1) Take a picture of yourself right NOW!.
2) DON'T change your clothes, DON'T fix your hair... Just take a picture.
3) Post that picture with NO editing.
4) Post these instruction with your picture.
5)Tag 10 people to do this.

I am tagging my friends listed below. Let me see how you look like without fixing yourself. I wanna see you being plain and simple. Grab your camera and try this tag. Happy blogging!

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow...

It was first week of March 2008 when I first experienced the heavy snow in Kentucky. I felt like I was a child again when I saw tiny particles of crushed ice falling from the dark sky. My husband was laughing at me that night. It was my first taste of snow. But it was too late for me to make a BIG snowman. I played outside the house for a little bit - made my first snow angel, walked in 7 1/2 inches thick of snow in the ground and made my little snowman.

This time a year, snowfall was early for me now that I am living on the western part of the United States - North Dakota. I love it here during the summer because it is not humid. Although we have some harsh winter time. I am expecting more snowfalls for the coming days. This afternoon, there's some snow showers, enough to cover my car and the husband's truck. The husband went outside to put my car in the garage. Unfortunately, his truck was big that it didn't fit the garage. If there will be more snow showers, we might be ready making our big snowman for this Christmas.

While Strolling in the Park One Day...

The husband and I had a cold and freezing stroll outside the house. He bought me a snow boots with thermal insulation so I won't be using my sneakers to walk in a heavy cold ice in the ground. I used it for the first time, it was heavy but worth it because my feet keeps it warm. While walking, we discovered some tracks from deer, rabbit, dog, cat and even rat. We had a fine day. We were able to see the beauty of nature even it's snowing.

Now that I have my snow boots, the husband told me that walking outside the house will be a routine to help us being fit and healthy during the winter time. It is one way of our exercise to loose some weight. I just can't wait for more winter activities in the coming days. I am pretty sure it would be a lot of fun between me and the husband.
