TV Codes

More and more people are now thinking of ways on how they can stretch their budget and save on the things that they use on a daily basis. Some are always on constant lookout for items that are on sale in their local stores. Others would look for coupons in their newspaper such as red envelope tv codes and use them for their purchases. The savings they get help a lot in their monthly budget. They know that if they are conscious about their spending habits, they will not exceed their monthly budget.

Initially, I was going to call it "Rock of LOVE" but I realized it sounds very! Anyhow, I had this rock for a couple of years now. Hubby bought it at the base during his duty in the Air Force.
The first thing he said when he got home was "Honey, I got you something for your garden. I hope you'll like it" hahhaha...I thought he found it somewhere and brought it home. It's cute though! 


Owning an aquarium is a very popular hobby with millions of people around the world. Besides a delightful passtime, an aquarium helps relieve stress. I had my first aquarium when I was in high school, and it was a tiny one. I think it was a 5-gallon fish tank. When I moved to the US, hubby bought me a 20-gallon fish tank.

One of my favorite fish is the ZEBRAFISH. They're cute and they swim far faster than goldfish.
Recently, I bought a new big tank for my fish. Now, I'm maintaining 2 fish tanks. Maintaining an aquarium is not a pain in the b**t. Nope, not at all! I only change filters once a month, and have my bottom feeders and janitor fish cleans the inside for!

Triton Link Necklace

Jewelry is not just for women. Some men wears jewelry too! My dad is a good example. He loves jewelry more than my mom. I think I inherited that characteristic from him because I love jewels. I remember when I was a kid, my dad bought me a pair of earrings and a gold necklace on my birthday. And he’s the one who took me to the store to have my ears pierced when I was 5 years old. That’s my dad! On his birthday, I am planning to give him a triton link necklace. I know he prefers gold over sterling silver but if it’s a gift from me, I’m sure he can't resist.

Life Insurance On My Terms

It is always advisable that before you enter any agreement, you find out everything you can about it first. This will saves you from bigger problems that may occur in the future in case you agree on something that you don’t know anything about. If it’s your first time to acquire a life insurance for your family, spend as much time as you can to educate yourself on what you should need to know about life insurance. It is always helpful if you browse through sites that will help you in this. Life Insurance On My Terms can guide you as you decide which insurance plan can provide what you are looking for. Although having a life insurance is important, the process of selecting the right one is just as important.

I almost got a heart attack when I saw this fella lounging on our deck. Holy cranberry batman! I've never seen this scaly lizard before. At first glance, I thought it was an!
I hurriedly went inside and grabbed my camera. Freaky, he looked at me!
The Texas Spiny Lizard (Sceloporus olivaceus) is a fairly common resident of most of Texas; its range also extends northward into Oklahoma and southward well into Mexico. It spends a great deal of time on fence posts and in trees where it searches for food, but can be encountered on rocks or on the ground as well. - Greg Lasley

No Sew Pillow Covers

I did this project a couple of years ago. It's called "no sew pillow covers". Since I don't have any knowledge of sewing, I decided to just browsed the web and found THIS really cool tutorial.
I really enjoy doing this activity because sewing is unnecessary. How cool is that! This is the first pillow cover I made, I love the result. I also used other floral fabrics. It looks better than this one though. I was going to share the photo but I just can't find the picture of it. 
I no longer use this pillow covers because I have some new ones that are made by mamiAdin

Here's my entry for this week's ABC Wednesday, Y is for YARDWORK.
Hubby and I are trying hard to improve our yard. Instead of hiring a professional landscaper, we decided to just do it on our own. Project like this is quite expensive.
Our yard is getting a whole lot better now. We still need more plants and other yard stuff.

Hummingbirds are one of my favorite birds. They are just cute. I just get excited every time I see a hummingbird....can't imagine holding one!
This little fella accidentally flew into our garage weeks ago. Hubby was trying to catch it but the bird was frantic and so desperate to get out. Hubby starting to get frustrated after a few minutes of chasing the bird around. So, I came to the rescue and dragged a bar stool. I reached up and carefully closed my hand around its small wings. I caught a hummingbird!
His body is so fragile. So cute and tiny. We set him free after a few minutes of mesmerization and!
