Spring is Here... and I'm going Outdoors!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pier 1 for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Yey! Spring is finally here. There are lots of reasons to celebrate. The weather is getting warmer and it means that I can spend more time outdoors. The flowers are  blooming and I can start working in my garden. And the day is longer and I can entertain friends and family outdoors again.

So, spring is here and it’s time for my outdoor furniture to claim its rightful spot in the backyard. But since some of them are already no good it’s time to go to Pier 1 and check out their new outdoor furniture “must haves” that just arrived in time for spring.

Oh, I just love Pier 1 because I can update my patio with new "outdoor swingasan chair" or our inside living space with new "colorful milk glass vases and lamps" without hurting my budget because I can always get a great deal on their products. And it is always fun to decorate and redecorate with Pier 1 pieces because they always come up with new pieces like "spring candles in tins and decorated glasses to gorgeous candle holders and center pieces". You can get lots of special items at special values from "multi-colored napkin rings" which originally cost $29.5 a piece, now $2.36 to "rack with baskets" which was originally $149.95 now, it's only $129.99. It saves me 20% on a lot of hot items . The iconic "papasan" for example has evolved and I can just imagine that it will surely pop out in my newly brick-paved patio and “wow” my friends.

Well, spring is officially here so what are you waiting for? Check out Pier 1 and sign up for their special in-store offer for the weekend of March 18-20 to receive Pier 1 Outdoor newsletter and get yourself a great deal for your new outdoor/indoor papasan that will surely wow your friends whom you just love and can’t wait to entertain.

And oh, by the way, watch out for the upcoming Pier 1 Tweetups coming at your city:

Dallas: March 22nd
Atlanta: April 5th
NYC: April 20th

C’mon, it’s springtime and it’s time to enjoy the weather and your new favorite space made possible by Pier 1. Wink**

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…
