Best Thing Ever

The article written by Alonso Kramer

Getting married was the best thing I ever did but it also totally turned my life upside down. I know that sounds silly but my husband lived out here in Texas so I had to move everything I owned from Georgia to here and it was quite a transition for both me and my family since we were all so close. I’m getting used to it out here and I even lined up a teaching job to start in December for a lady who’s having a baby in the fall and I can’t wait to get started! I’ve been doing the wifely duties at home like cleaning and researching HughesNet Internet in Texas and I feel like I’m really getting the hang of being someone’s significant other. I love being married and my husband an I really like all the BBQ they eat out here in the Lone Star state, too! That’s not the worst thing about moving!

Everything You Need

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

When  I bought my first phone, I thought I got everything I need. But I was wrong. I feel cheated in some way that I have to pay the bill that I didn't even use in the first place. So much for a hidden charges that I'm not aware of. I wanted to get away with it because it makes me sick paying too much on my phone bills. The only time I could call a friend was when it's Saturday and Sunday because the call is free. How pathetic! I have to save my minutes for my emergency use. All I want from a phone company is I can enjoy their service. 

I guess, I should listen to my mother because as they always say, mom knows best. I should just choose the phone company that will give me everything I need, no rip-offs and something that I can enjoy. I love the idea that I can cut my phone bill in half so I can have that feeling richer effect. My husband suggested that we should switch to Straight Talk just like his daughter did. At Straight Talk, no bogus and fictitious on monthly plans. There are no contracts, surprised bills and the reception and connectivity is excellent! Great nationwide coverage too.  

So, everything you need in a phone company is waiting for you to make a switch.  If you are a heavy user, you can have the plan that is just perfect for you - 1000 minutes and texts with 30 MB of web data. How cool is that? It makes me want to switch right now! I can even call my family in the Philippines because Straight Talk Long Distance service has a flexible prepaid calling service that lets me call and talk to my family no matter what time of the day at low rates. Believe it!

Asian Kung Pao

There's a little restaurant in Tyler, Texas where we live during the winter time. It is called Kung Pao. They served fresh Asian food. Thai and Chinese food are the food they served. You can order what you want and they will cook it from there. My husband and I loves it because they served fresh vegetables. You can choose from seafood, meat and poultry. It is really good. When we come home to Texas, we will visit Kung Pao!

Show Your Smile

When I was a kid, I dream of being in the commercial model of a toothpaste brand. But that didn't work as I grew up. I let it slipped away. Over the years, that ambition is far gone, though sometimes, when I watch TV, I always see beautiful smiles from beautiful commercial models. Their teeth are white and shinny! I want to have those teeth. I am really jealous! I wasn't blessed with a perfect teeth but I take good care of my own teeth. I brushed them twice a day.

The thing is, the visit to Dentist is not regular. I should know better since it is a must for a proper hygiene. Because of my regular six months job, I just can't leave my job right away. I don't normally get the weekends off. Usually, I go to my dentist during fall or winter. I need to Find A Dentist that is good and efficient in Texas since we live down south during the winter. Two months from now, it will be the start of my two front teeth project. I set it up on high priority. I really need to get it fixed so I show my beautiful smile.

Gotta Love Your Curves

Voluptuous is sexy! You must love your curves. Fashion can be done in so many ways. We can accessorized, mix and match clothes, choose the right color and the right outfit. Some people goes with what's the popular trend, for some, they go for the comfort. I would say, I will go for both. I won't be choosing the kind of clothing that is too racy to wear or the kind of clothing that will be uncomfortable or causing physical discomfort.

I have seen some people who wear improper clothes, out of style and out of fashion. I mean, what's wrong with the trends nowadays? Don't get me wrong but pajamas for traveling and shopping? That's not just so cool. With different retails for women's clothing and fashion style, I am sure that they can find something that is appropriate and comfortable to wear. To add more, there's a lot of clothing store that focus on plus size fashion, a design something presentable but comfortable to wear in public for all curvaceous, full-figured women. You can never go wrong with the fashion and style. You'll find all you need in just one stop

Empty Calories

What's your favorite junk food? I was in high school when I first tasted these junk food and it's been my favorite since then. It's good. Once in a while, I craved for these two.

Gotta Love The Phone

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Net10. All opinions are 100% mine.

It was two years ago when my husband and I dropped our contract to this big company. They charged too much on the things we really don't need. The hidden charges was just absurd! No matter how well they explain it in the monthly bill, we still cannot decipher all the terms. What in the world we got into? A phone company who charges too much on hidden charges! That's way out of the line. So after we dropped them, we made the big switch. We bought a phone from Wal-Mart. We have been a real NET10 customer since then. No matter where we are or even in Hawaii, we can make phone calls to our family and friends.

Where can you get a phone that has a nationwide coverage? Only at Net10! I have all the bragging rights because my husband and I has been a customer and we're still are! Net10 Unlimited is a great deal. You can get nationwide coverage with unlimited calls, text and data for just $50.00 a month. That's way too cool! Seriously?! For $50.00 a month I can call anyone I want and send never-ending messages to my friends. Take note of this, there's no contract, no surprised monthly bills and credit checks with great connectivity anywhere in the United States. We see the Light after purchasing and used the service. We even use it everyday for our daily needs to catch up with family and friends. 

The airtime can be purchased online at a nearby store or directly from your phone. The Easy-Minute-Plus plans for automatic plans is just $15.00 for 200 minutes. You can choose from different plans they have. For more information about the NET10, check out this cute NET10 commercial

Love What You Wear!

I must love my body, even if it's not perfect. I must take care of my body, even if it's not physically fit. When I go for clothes shopping, I go for nice and comfortable clothing. The fashion and style should be secondary. All of us wants to look nice and feel good. Our clothes will speak for itself. We should choose the right size and style for our physique.

Two or three years ago, I had a hard time choosing what style of clothing to wear. Don't get me wrong but sometimes, I went gaga for clothes shopping not knowing if it will look good on me. I was an impulsive buyer. It didn't do me any good and my money went to waste. I could have save a lot of money. I should have known better.

Some of my friends are curvaceous, but their full-figured physique didn't stop them for being stylish and fashionable. Some women can just pull it off with their nice and voguish plus size clothes. They just know how to accessorize that will complement to what they are wearing. Now, that's real fashion!

The Wildlife

There are many reasons why I want to go to Alaska. I want to see the nature and the wildlife. I wonder how the animals can live longer during the winter time. I understand that some animals hibernate and some just hunt for the food to stay alive. But I don't think I can be tough in a very cold weather. In North Dakota, though we have some nice weather, I still dread the long winter over here. I wish that animals can hunt a lot of food for them to eat to survive the long winter especially in Alaska. 

Voluptuous is the New Sexy!

I've always wanted to be sexy. You know. The super sexy like a supermodel on TV, billboards and magazines. Unfortunately, no matter what I do, being a supermodel remains to be just a dream. I don't have the height, definitely no long legs to flaunt and I'm just an ordinary human being. But still, I am happy to be me. I am perfectly fine beyond my imperfections. I am what I am!

I have some few friends who's been struggling the way they shop their clothes. Luckily, there's a pretty cool store for those full-figured woman. They can shop anything they want including a plus size formal dresses. I have to check out their online store so whenever I go on vacation, I have something to give to my aunts and cousins. I've never seen them for so long so I want to make our meetings extra special because I am going to give them pretty cool clothes that will make them shine.

I don't have to worry anymore what presents to give to all my voluptuous friends because I found an online fashion that will fit perfectly for them, plus they will definitely look good in it. As a matter of fact, I'm excited to go shopping! I wonder who's birthday is coming up soon.

Hello Monday!

How are y'all today? Another Monday for us again. How did your Monday go? As for me, I went to work at 7AM. I did some cleaning, paying bills, went to post office for all our mails. I went ahead and finished bookkeeping today. Though I'm not done yet but I will get there in time. I have all the time to do all the things that needs to be done. I have a way of sorting what's next in line.

Maybe two more months to go and my six-month job for the summer will be over this year. Yes! I'm screaming at the top of my lungs - I'm excited for my winter vacation! I miss our house in Texas. I'm going to see my friend too. Maybe, after getting things settled when we come home, we might go on a trip. I still don't know where yet but I think, my Hubby got a plan. I need to find out what it is because I am very excited!

I have been a fan of smartphone. When a new smartphone is out in the market, I always want to have right away. Why not? They are so cool to use. You can swipe all the way you want while exploring all the coolest app. You can even discover something that other people don't. How cool is that? That's why I don't go for any cheap phones that cannot entertain me. I want a phone that I will enjoy wherever I go. I just like the way a smartphone works that can give you entertainment and amusement.

I have been lucky lately. Though, my hands are still tied from my regular summer job, I still get good offers from blogging. Who can passed up an opportunity like this? Not me! I am taking all my time to do my task and do everything under my power to finished every task I have. I will not allow the time to passed by without doing anything. If I have to do it right away, I will do it.
