Our wedding vows

Hubs and I agreed to have a wedding officiated by their Pastor! (My regular blog readers would know that I am still a Catholic) Hence, we had to prepare our own vows. During our bf-gf days, we would chat and he would ask if I have done my vows. Well, it was always on my to do list as a bride to be that time. My husband wrote his vow a month after he came back to US. ( I saw his saved file on his computer when I joined him here in the US) I wrote our vow the night before our wedding! ( I saved the tiny piece of paper in my wedding scrapbook)

His wedding vow! (He said this as if all the words just came out from his heart, eyes looking at me intently..)

Today I become one with you. You are now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh. Take my hand and let us build our dreams together. Let us stay together and let us pray together, "As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord." This is my pledge to you and To The One who gave you to me!

(Natigilan ako, inakupo, ano na nga yung vow ko? Minemorize ko pa, di ko na dinala ang kodigo dahil ayokong ma tempt magbasa pero ang ganda naman ng sinabi ng lalaking ito! Ramdam ko naman sa kaibuturan ng puso ang kanyang tinuran....Ah basta, eto galing talaga sa puso ko)I looked at him ..and said..

When we met last year, I knew you were different. Indeed, God has led me to His choice --YOU. And as you have pledged your love and your life to me, I, too , happily give myself to you!
I promise to support you, encourage you. I vow to be a faithful and obedient wife! I know that I am doing God's will right now! I will forever love you my love and I will take care of our family!

It feels good to share your life with someone you truly love! I never believed in soulmates though husband insists that we are! As we celebrate our fourth wedding anniversay, I will continue to love you, my love, and I will take care of our family!! I thank God I have you in my life, together with M!

(Oh..when I looked at my written vow- it was totally different from what I said. Walang faithful at obedient wife..nyaheheheheheh..)

A major exam!

Quizzes after quizzes! Exams after another exam! I guess being a student makes you geared up for all the quizzes that will come your way. Bring it on!
Hubs and MIL wants to go to Destin outlet this weekend for some last minute shopping as MIL flies back home to Pinas on the 27th. I don't think I can join them! But I am excited to go shopping next week-- the Black Friday event! Good thing I am done with my exams next week (Wednesday-to be exact) which is a reason why I should really celebrate! I even asked Hubs to postpone our dinner date for that anniv celebration! Tsaka na lang mag celebrate!
Now, back to my notes!!!

Answered tag-free view desktop

I got this tag from Weng few months back! The desktop freeview is Weng's assignment which had been haunting me (aside from my math homework, my laundry, my closet, M's room etc)!!Finally, I have a few spare time to show to the whole world what my computer screen looks like!! (Drumroll..)

This is my one of my fave picture of my son M showing his first two teeth taken when he was 6 months old. Sometimes I wanted to change it but then I thought this reminds me of how I enjoyed being a stay at home mom and how I loved taking care of him 24x7. Best times really! It was just me and hubs on his 1st year as mil got to stay with us when he turned two! Looking at this pic brings me so much joy! This picture also shows how M looks a lot like his dad! Our friends call M, Charlie Jr.
My screen has some of my sil's files, N files, as she used my notebook when she stayed with us last Dec-March! I haven't deleted it yet. I need to do that sometime! It has some of my A&P (Anatomy & Physiology notes) pictures which I don't think a lot of you will like! It has slides showing the parts of the digestive system of the cat, etc. At first I did not like looking at those pictures but I had no choice! I guess now I am used to it!
Hooray, I did it! I actually did post my pic! Now for the tag, here are the rules of this meme, I have to tag 5 other people. Before I do that, here are the instructions:

A. Upon receiving this tag, immediately perform a screen capture of your desktop. It is best that no icons be deleted before the screen capture so as to add to the element of fun.

You can do a screen capture by: [1] Going to your desktop and pressing the Print Scrn key (located on the right side of the F12 key). [2] Open a graphics program (like Picture Manager, Paint, or Photoshop) and do a Paste (CTRL + V). [3] If you wish, you can “edit” the image, before saving it.

B. Post the picture in your blog. You can also give a short explanation on the look of your desktop just below it if you want. You can explain why you preferred such look or why is it full of icons. Things like that.

C. Tag five of your friends and ask them to give you a Free View of their desktop as well.

D. Add your name to this list of Free Viewers with a link pointing directly to your Desktop Free View post to promote it to succeeding participants.

Now, sorry but I do not have anyone to tag. I think everyone has done this but if you haven't, please feel free to tag yourself!

The husband- tagged

Taken after the wedding, 11/16/2003, Fernwood Gardens, Philippines

This week, Hubs and I started to be baduy..kasi anniversary na namin! It started last Nov. 10, hubs said, "Five years ago, ngayong araw na ito ako nanligaw sa yo!. After 3 days sinagot mo ako! After 3 days ulit & 1 year, ikinasal kami!! Yup, it is a whirlwind romance! I guess Meeya can relate to this..(she is also the source of this tag--what a great way to update)

Here are the rules…

This tag is simple. If you feel comfortable and your better half does too, you can post a picture of him in your blog (but if not a description will do). May it be a baby picture anything that you like with the following:

1. First name: if he doesn’t like his name plastered all over the internet, a pet name will do.
2. How and where did you meet?
3. Characteristics
4. Your plans 20 to 30 years from now.

Question 1. First name- Charlie. My name- Angel. In other words, I'm Charlie's Angel. I warned you baduy ito! (Pwede rin sigurong Angel Locsin- :))

Question 2. How and where did you meet? Our friends S and C set us up. I visited my friend S and then S & C introduced us to each other over dinner here at Panama City, Florida last Oct. 19, 2002. ( Ahhh..I can remember the date..kilig!!) It was love at first sight for him as he was smitten by my beauty! He kept on asking questions about me that night while I never asked anything about him. At that time, I was not really interested, not yet. The next day, he called me and invited me for lunch at Olive Garden. That was the time I started asking about him and I thought he was an interesting guy! His voice had a way of calming me! Two weeks after, he went to the Philippines and courted me and introduced me to his whole clan. He said I love you Nov 10. I said I love you back Nov 13. The day I said mag un na kami, he replied "Yes, mag aasawa na ako!" I said, "hello, mag boyfriend lang tayo noh." 3 days after, he went to Fernwood Gardens together with his parents and made a reservation for our wedding a year after! So we got married Nov 16, 2003.

Question 3. Characteristics --Too many to mention!! Joke..Seriously, he was the most God fearing man I have ever dated! His love for God and us, his family , is beyond doubt! He keeps his promises, makes me happy, pampers me and makes me feel so special! Feeling ko sexy ako kahit hindi na ako sexy! He is a very good father to Miguel. A hands on dad! A very good provider!!A handyman!! (Mahilig magkalat, mahilig magsimula ng project pero di tinatapos, kung saan saan iniiwan ang damit at medyas..ayyy..mali..) He would give out the corniest joke and yet I would still find it funny! He is a great cook!! In fact, he is my mentor when it comes to cooking! He knows how to balance his time between work and family!! He is also just in making decisions, a person worthy of high respect!!No wonder his mom and dad looks up to hime when it comes to decision making! (Ako lang ang di sumusunod sa gusto nya..heheh)

Question 4. Plans 20-30 years from now - Retire in the Philippines, maybe in Tagaytay or Batangas!! (I just hope our son will come with us although I know this is M's decision and I do not want to impose- really???)Plant veggies in our backyard, design our space so that it will reflect our style - maybe hire Candice of Divine Design for this matter) Be involved in medical mission or volunteer work that will serve the Filipino people. Continue to serve God in our own little way! And of course, reminisce our happy times together, keep on telling those corny jokes and love stories to our future grandkids!

Wow, I enjoyed doing this! Please feel free to tag yourself!!

I got an award!!

Last month I got this from Nice! :)

Thank you Nice for giving me this award!!As per rules, the Nice Matters award goes out to those who are just nice people, good blog friends, and those who inspire good feelings and inspiration! Those who care about others, who are there to lend support or those who are just a positive influence in the blogging world! (Hehe, Nice, ang tamad ko, ni copy paste ko na lang hehehe)

The award says: Dang of My Married Life (Ako po yun, ehem)

She writes well and her posts are optimistic and inspiring. I love reading about her married life and how she absolutely adores her son M.

Buti na lang walang "Late magreply award". Makukuha ko din yun!
I'm giving this award to ..tada...Weng and Meeya!!.

Weng - I love reading Weng's blog and I enjoy Abby's adventures. My, how I wish I have a baby girl whenever I see Abby's cute pictures (my fave pic at the moment is the snow princess pic taken last halloween). Weng's baking/cooking and kitchen expertise makes me want to cook a dish right now!!! Reading her views inspire me as well! I wish I could write like her.

Meeya - My day or week will not be complete without reading Meeya's blog, her travel to the different states and her stories on raising her charming, witty and smart toddler named Ninna! I chanced upon her blog in 2004 and got hooked. There were nights where hubs and I would read together her entries, laugh at her posts and be inspired by what she stands for. I may not be able to update my blog, but reading her blog is one habit I cannot break. (Ohh, I will add salivating on pretty purses too di ba Meeya;)..)

To you Weng and Meeya, if you had this award before, just add it to your roster! In that case, I might get another award- "Late magbigay ng award". (hehehe) Forgive me..
One more thing, do check out Nice's other site It is informative for moms, dads, and all those who are raising their kids!!!
Having babies and toddlers changes everything! Cliche..but very true!!

I got in!!!

Hello everyone, I am still alive!!Too much school stuff!!The good news is I got accepted in the Nursing program by God's grace!!I made it to the top 50 students who will be able to start the program this Spring and hopefully finish the course in two years time! Prayers, prayers!!!Kaya ni Lord yan!!
I have never studied like this when I was in college!!I do not have the time to watch telenovela's anymore or the Buzz!!All I do is ask MIL whats the latest and she would just relay the recent episode of Pangarap na Bituin! Haaay..
Since I'm under the foundation's scholarship, I decided to call their office and inform them that I will be starting my nursing program next year and if I could go to a full time scholarship. Previously, I was awarded a full time scholarship but I had to enroll to 4 subjects which I cannot do so I downgraded to a part time. The foundation agreed but that meant they will only pay half of the tuition costs. Now, I want to upgrade and they called me to their office yesterday. When I came in, I was directed to see the president of the foundation. Bigla akong ninerbyos. Baka kulangin ako sa baon kong Ingles! Good thing, Mr. M was so helpful and he said he will try to help me since it will involve a little paperwork but then he is not promising anything. Sayang kasi talaga. I didnt know that I will be able to start this January so nag pa downgrade ako last sem!! I just hope and pray they will approve my request!
Ok, Ok..I have to go but I do hope to be back real soon! Marami pa akong utang na post (thanks nice and weng) I do hope to catch up!
(andami ko palang sinimulang posts pero puro draft lang..haaayy..)
