NJ Diaries: Summer 2014

07.28.14: Long Beach Island

Hello, dolls!!! πŸ™‚ Today is another snowy winter day and to warm me up, I am going to talk about summer. Summer as you all know, is the busiest season of the year. It is close to impossible to get a decent off from work. It makes me miss school and how I know I can get the whole summer off to spend with family and look forward to all our travels/getaways. A and I won’t let our summer to be just spent for work, we planned to go to the beach (even if its just once) and it happened! We were so happy that we were able to go to the beach with our family here.


New Jersey and New York comes to mind when I think about summer here in the US.

New Jersey for food and family, New York for food.




Don’t you feel like January is just flying by? Usually I will be having this feeling like I do not want it to end yet, but honestly as of now I am a bit excited because I know I am just one snow day away from the warmth of spring!! (and ugh my wedding!) (more…)


One Down

04.03.2012:Β Today is my first month here in the States! (Yay! One month down, eleven to go). My first 31 days here is like riding a roller coaster that never goes down. Fast and exciting are the perfect words for the month of March. I couldn’t really think of a moment that really Β putted me down. God has been really amazing to me for the past month, being guided and protected by Him each day makes living away from my family bearable.I don’t know why but I felt really giddy knowing that I have already downed a month, just the thought of going back home and living the better life that I have are just some of the things that keeps me going forth.

Anyway, here’s a short random rundown of how the March of month went for me πŸ™‚

Outside our apartment πŸ™‚ I bet this would look better on Summer! πŸ™‚

Posted this on our mail box. Haha :))

I am reminded of Sims 3 every time I see a yellow school bus. So cuuute!

1st shoe purchase! Getting ready for Spring and Summer! Heehee πŸ™‚

Pink Clogs for me!! πŸ™‚ So in love with my work shoes!

Shopping here in the States is really ohhhh-some! I get crazy online shopping because of their free shipping service,and get crazier in the malls!

With Β the people I’d be living with for a year πŸ™‚

I don’t really like eating in Fast Food Chains, but I just couldn’t let myself go home without trying McDonald’s in America (lol) πŸ™‚ I still stay on the healthy side! Good thing they serve salads and healthy stuff like non-fat drinks & low-carb meals! πŸ™‚

My first McDonald’s trip! πŸ™‚ I tried their Shamrock and it was sooooo good! Kudos to them for using non-fat dairy (I hope they really did) πŸ™‚ <3

My hits just sky-rocketed when I left the Philippines! Lol :)) Thank you guys, especially to my 20 followers!! <3 <3 <3

Another awesome feature in WordPress! πŸ™‚ I just love how legit “hits” are in WordPress! It doesn’t count my page views when I view my site! So I know all of the hits that I accumulate each day are from my awesome readers πŸ™‚

Thank you everyone!!! πŸ™‚

Too cute for words!!! πŸ™‚ <3 This is why I love being anΒ Ate πŸ™‚

I ended the month of March in poor health. This is one of the things that I am very afraid of, getting sick without my family around. Β God was really amazing to me for providing me strength to go to work during my days of being feeble and people who are physically here to take care of me.

Having a fast phased life here is a gift from above. Knowing that I am another day closer to being with my family and loved ones again really gives me excitement and something to look forward to each waking day! πŸ™‚

Will upload photos on Facebook,

R <3
