Can't get enough. Can't have enough. Enormous obsession to money can buy one more trouble than happiness.

Enjoying summertime without thinking about the Big Bs

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

Oh summer, who doesn’t love summertime? The sea, the sand and the sun – what a perfect combination, I couldn’t ask for more. This summer vacation I opted not to work. Yes, I am officially a bum. And being unemployed has its advantages and disadvantages. To be able to look forward on weekend’s road trip, camping and gold panning without worrying we have to hurry back home for the next day’s work is awesome. But going on a tight budget to be able to pay bills is not. Hahaha. So we have to make a wise decision and sacrifice on some essential stuff to make our summer awesome.

Summertime calls for the big “Bbills, budget, and bargain. That is why I have decided to switch my phone with Tracfone because it’s the least expensive way to stay in touch here in America. It’s easy to own. There is no contract that you need to deal with like with other big phone companies. No credit checks which is good for those people who are having tough times during this economy. No activation charges or cancelation fees when you decided to stop using it – so no surprises to your next bills.

So if you are looking for some help this summer with your cell phone bill, here are some points to consider switching to TracFone:
1.TracFone has great nationwide coverage and excellent reception/connectivity.
2.It carries brand name phones from leading manufacturers like Motorola, Kyocera, LG, Nokia and Samsung. Choose from simple "Candy Bar" phones, to Bluetooth®-enabled "Smart" phones.
3.They also have Monthly Plans at fit your budget.
-Pay as you go online or with cards available at thousands of retail stores across the country.
-1 year service cards give you so much more. Receive double minutes for the life of your TracFone, and 800 minutes, for only $119.00
·“Double minutes for the life of your phone” is a feature that can be purchased separately for only$19.99, but some phones include it!
-Choose monthly plans with 200 minutes for under $30.00, and as low as $9.99 for 50 minutes.
4.For International Long Distance, TracFone is the only wireless service where you can call internationally, for the same price as any other call. You can call over 60 international destinations directly at no extra cost from your TracFone! And with the International Neighbors program, you can provide family and friends in Mexico or Canada a local phone number in those countries to reach you at your TracFone in the U.S.

And here are another important things note taking about the TracFone’s phone selection:
1.You can choose simple phones for simple needs.
2.It has calling and texting capabilities for under $10.00.
3.They have great phones packed with features like camera/video recorder, web access, app capabilities, mp3 player, and full QWERTY keyboard, for $29.99
The TracFone is the most reliable phone there is now, check out these real TracFone customers if your are not convinced yet.

And if you are tired of getting surprised with your phone bills, then check out these real TracFone customers video so you to will be surprised no more with your bills.

Well, I am not really a “phone person”, meaning – I only keep a phone for emergency reason aside from my usual call to Hubby to check on him or the other way around. That is why TracFone is the most convenience thing for me to get in touch.

For more information on convenience, reliability and coverage check out these videos from these real TracFone customers.

Well, summer may end soon but our bills will continue coming. If we can save a lot on our phone bills, it will be an awesome thing. It will surely help us plan for our next summer’s vacation maybe – in the Caribbean or Hawaii? Wherever you plan to go... there is one thing we don't want to think about - the big "B".

What really happened on our 4th Wedding Anniversary

Ok, I had to admit, that Wedding Anniversary thingy didn't happen. Even the part where we supposed to be watching CSI, romantically [whatever that means].

No, you wouldn't guess why. You cannot imagine why, a Wedding Anniversary would turn out to be a disaster. Well, I will not make you guess no more. There are varied reasons and there are two-fold reasons to the "reasons".

The two-fold reasons:
His reasons:
1. He worked long hours.
2. He went straight to his friend's house to give the payment for the sluice that he had ordered custom-made.
3. He didn't have the time to buy me gift or flowers because of the 2 reasons above.

My reasons:
1. I was PMS-ing so I didn't listen to reasons.
2. I was pre-menopausing so I didn't have the ability to listen to any reasons.
3. All of the above.

Downside of the story:
His side: He saved money on gift and dining out.
My side: I didn't get the chance to get new Pandora Charms. hayyy [Yes, he tried to hand me out a booklet of the entire Pandora Charms inventory for me to choose what I want but I was so mad I didn't even look at it. I didn't even realize he had that booklet or shall I say Pandora Bible].

Oh well, there will be a 5th so I'll make it up then. hahaha

You're still the one!

Today, I woke up early and just laid in bed watching my sweetest while he was still in dreamland. It has been awhile since I last did it.

School is already over and now I have more time to stay in bed. I don't need to hurry up to go to work because I am now a certified bum [LOL]. And as I lay tracing his face with my fingers so carefully not wanting to wake him up... memories of some 4 years ago came flashing back.

Yes, four years ago... on this exact day... we said "I do". Yes, today is our 4th Wedding Anniversary. It has been fours years now and I can't believe that we are still together. Not that I wish otherwise, it's just that after all the ups and downs and all the things that we have been through, I can't believe that we still have the strength to hold on and not give up.

Well, we are just typical couples with typical problems like everybody else. We are ordinary people with ordinary trials and hurdles but we were able to conquer them in our extra-ordinary way. And we are just simple human beings not trying hard to be super heroes wanting to save the world but save our relationship the best way we can.

Today... I opted not to write him the usual I-don't-know-if-he-actually-read-or-have-a-clue-that-it-actually-exist love letter but rather sing him a special song that fits what I feel right now. Yes, this is the only way I can give justice to my singing talent without humiliating myself in the process. LOL. And this is also the best way to save me the time and the energy to think of what I want to tell my Sweetest on our special day.

So here we go... hmmmmmm [I started humming. Yeah!]

[Oops! Narrating first.]
I first saw you, I saw love.
And the first time you touched me, I felt love.
And after all this time, you're still the one I love.)

[Now singing with my eyes closed.]
Looks like we made it
Look how far we've come my baby
We mighta took the long way
We knew we'd get there someday

They said, "I bet they'll never make it"
But just look at us holding on
We're still together still going strong

Chorus: [Banging my head now!LOL]
(You're still the one)
You're still the one I run to
The one that I belong to
You're the one I want for life
(You're still the one)
You're still the one that I love
The only one I dream of
You're still the one I kiss good night

Ain't nothin' better
We beat the odds together
I'm glad we didn't listen
Look at what we would be missin'

I'm so glad we made it
Look how far we've come my baby

My Dear Sweetest,

Happy Anniversary Sweetest. I hope you like my song. Tonight, I will sing it to you again... in the comfort of our bed... with the rhythm of the humming sound of the A/C [looks like it will be another humid night]... with the romantic ambiance of our bedroom brought by the calming and lightly lit Himalayan salt rock lamp... while watching CSI. [DANG IT!] hahaha. Whatever! But as you lay down to sleep tonight I want you to know that - I love you more than you ever know. Thank you for your patience for 4 long years. I hope it is renewable for another term. wink*

Your Sweetie.
