Summer Vacation, Last Hurrah

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Hiltons of Branson. All opinions are 100% mine.

Summer is already on a countdown. We have only few more weeks left and Fall is almost here. I can already feel it in the air. The days seem to be getting shorter now and the nights are already getting colder. And yes, I already saw a couple of maple leaves turning yellow.

Well, I can’t stop summer but I can make the most out of it before school starts again. But there is one problem. You see, you have read all about gold panning here. And gold panning is the only thing that Hubby wants to do right now. So how can I convince him to go where I want to? And where do I want to go? Missouri.

I have not been to Missouri but I heard all about it from a friend of mine. She and her hubby have been there and she can’t stop telling me all the good things about Branson and how they enjoyed their vacation there. They are planning to go back there again next summer. According to her, they stayed at the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel which is a full-service hotel connected to the famous Branson Convention Center which is located in the heart of the historic Downtown Branson, Missouri . It was just across Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing, a retail and entertainment district situated at the legendary Lake Taneycomo.

If you are planning to spend the few last days of summer at Branson… you might want to know these:

Branson has ongoing events for everyone’s entertainment this summer like the exciting Branson Z Fest, National Kid’s Fest, Stage One National Dance Finals, performances by Travis Tritt and Tanya Tucker and the fun Father’s Day Bass Pro Boat Show; not to mention a series of amazing concerts conveniently located on the Branson Landing including shows from 65 South, Colgate Country Showdown with KHOZ 102.9, EXILE, The Nashvegas All Stars, and the Liz Moriondo Band!

It will surely be fun to be a part of all those events. My only problem is… will I be able to drag Hubby to Missouri. So I got one brilliant idea… I googled... and googled... and googled... some more and guess what? Yes! There is GOLD in Missouri and Hubby will surely be "gold panning" there too. So, hope to see yah all there.

Technical Support to Operate… our Husbands

Last night Hubby and I had a little LQ over a TV show and a back-scratching-com-rubbing errand that I used to do while we are watching TV. You see it has become his habit to ask me scratch and rub his back while watching TV. And yes, I ask him the same thing too. Why not, we have a saying… scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours, right? But last night he was complaining that his back hurts because he worked all day on the roof and he asked me to rub his back. I said no. Then, towards the middle of the TV program, my back itched and I asked him to scratch my back and he said no too. So I decided to sleep in the other bedroom last night. But he kept bugging me 3 times and asking me to move back to our bedroom because he said he can’t sleep without me by his side. I was surprised, because he would sometimes bitch about my snoring. He said it’s too loud he cannot sleep despite the fact that he too snores like hell [and I had it on video to prove my point].

Anyway, I didn’t want to rub his …

one year and we'll be counting

We did it. We made it. We passed it. A year of monotonously tedious ups and downs… a year of ostensibly constant struggle… a year of seemingly endless adjustment… a year of cyclically countless kisses and make ups… we are still standing strong – forgiving and forgetting each other’s shortcomings… accepting and recognizing each other’s flaws… tolerant and patient with each other’s imperfections.

And just like any normal married couple... here we are… after all the woozy marital roller coaster ride we did pass the test of time with flying colors. Here we are… after all the “I-give-up” and the “I-can’t-do-it-no-more” and the “that’s-it-I'm-done”, we still didn’t let go and kept holding on. Here we are... after all the innumerable hurts and pains we caused each other due to our own shallowness and pride, our love for each other remains stronger.

And so here we are. After all, we still have what it takes to be a couple... a couple with so much reasons to celebrate... a couple with so mu…

Panunuyo: American Version

Panunuyo is a Filipino tradition associated with courtship. There are lots of Filipino courtship traditions that are now neglected or taking a back seat in modern Pinoy romantic relationship. Gone are the days of the "harana" (serenade) because young couples nowadays have videoke to boost their relationship. But I am proud to say that I experienced "harana" when I was younger. I am not that old, okay. It was not that long ago actually. And it just so happened that in my province it was still being practiced "that" time. Anyway, I may be a Filipina at heart and a hopeless romantic that is why when I committed myself to this American guy, I had to convince myself that my being a hopeless romantic has to take back seat too.

When my Mike came to the Philippines to visit me, I was only hoping that he will like me and that the feeling will be mutual. I was just hoping that he would pop the question so that I could take the last train ride without looking back. A…
