Lady In Red

I love wearing red on Christmas so this is what I wore during our Christmas party in the church. This dress has been hanging in the closet for a long time because since I lost weight a few years ago, it became loose on me. I was able to maintain my weight for 7 years but unfortunately, I gained weight lately. I forgot my diet and it became hard for me to control my hunger pangs. I gained 20 pounds and the result, my clothes shrunk, lol! I was able to wear again those bigger sizes like this red dress. My new years resolution is to exercise and lose weight. I wanna shed off those unwanted pounds and my love handles. Wish me luck.

Cowhide Rugs - for Your Wooden and Stone Flooring

After years of being dissatisfied with your carpeted floors, you finally made a change. You may have purchased some new beautiful wood floors, stone floors, or a combination of the two. Although, you are ecstatic about your new flooring, you feel like something is still missing. If you can relate to this scenario, consider decorating your new floor coverings with stylish cowhide rugs.

Natural Beauty

The natural attractiveness of wood floors and stone floors is unmistakable. These types of flooring add value, style, and sophistication to any home. However, without some accents, they can look rather dull. Thankfully, with the right d├ęcor, you can add visual interest to new wood and stone floors. A stunning cowhide rug is the perfect choice for accomplishing this task. Like wood and stone floors, this type of floor covering boasts natural beauty. These completely natural rugs will instantly add warmth and texture to your living space.

Durability

Many types of rugs start wearing out almost as quickly as you lay them on your floors. Daily foot traffic produces unsightly snags, loose strings, and knots in them. Unlike other kinds of rugs, floor coverings made out of cow hide are very durable. They will hold up to the daily beating that your family and pets give them. Cleaning them is also a breeze. When every day spills and staining occurs, simply blot the rug with a wet cloth. To remove dust and dirt, you will also need to periodically take your rugs outside and shake them out.

Hypo-Allergenic

Do you or any of your other family members suffer from agonizing allergies? If allergies are a constant uncomfortable reality in your family, you might believe that decorating your home with cow skin rugs is not an option. Fortunately, these stylish home furnishings are specifically constructed to be hypo-allergenic. Regardless of whether you are normally allergic to animal products, you should be able to enjoy these accents in your home.

Adaptability

You may think that rugs made out of cowhide only look appropriate in ranch homes or country estates. Actually, this idea couldn’t be further from the truth. Whether you live in a suburban townhouse, a farmhouse, or a high rise condo, this type of rug will look amazing on your floors. You can also find a rug that will match your unique style preferences. Besides the traditional black and white or brown and white patterns, you can buy cowhide rugs in many different colors and designs. You can even purchase a different one for every room in your home.

If you want to turn your place into a show home, you need to consider filling it with cowhide rugs. These must have home furnishings offer natural beauty, durability, and adaptability. Cowhide rugs are even hypo-allergenic. So, everyone can enjoy the style and sophistication that this type of rug provides.

Blessings From A Friend

It's Christmas season once again and I am so blessed beyond measure to receive a lot of gifts from a friend. God really uses people to bless me and hubby. This morning around past 9AM, I got my ipad and checked my FB. I usually check my FB at night because I am busy doing chores during daytime but maybe God has been leading me to open my FB early morning. I had a message in my inbox and when I opened it, I saw a message from Cora, one of my friends from Texas who is on vacation in her hometown in Angeles City. She wanted to see me in Manaoag and they're on their way already. Had I not opened my FB, I would have not read Cora's message and I would have missed the chance to see her.

I was supposed to supervise the guy I hired to paint our front gate but then I just instructed him what to do. I asked my hubby to drive me to Manaoag church but he suggested to ask my youngest brother to drive for us. We stopped by in our town plaza to buy some tupig to give to my friend. Laoac is known for its yummy tupig. In fact even my hubby love it. At around past 11AM we were on our way to our meeting place and after waiting for a few minutes at the back of the church, we met Cora and her family having their lunch at one of the sheds there. She didn't waste time, she went to their van and gave me my "pasalubong" or let's say Christmas gifts. She opened 3 bags full of different stuffs and I was so overwhelmed! She said her balikbayan boxes that she shipped here in the Philippines just arrived yesterday. She really gave me a bunch of different stuffs. Let these pictures do the talking.



She used to give me pasalubong everytime she comes here but not as much as this time. She even remembered to buy a few things for Vernice. I bet my li'l girl would be very happy to receive her pink school bag and crayons. It's like I went shopping to BX or Clark but only these were all free. I was really blown away! I told my friend that she's like Santa Clause who granted my Christmas wishes. Her hubby was just smiling. My hubby and I were so flabbergasted with Cora's generosity.

What a blessing to have a friend who share her blessings to her friends. I will always be very grateful to friends like her. I am so incredibly blessed! God is really good. Merry Christmas everyone!
