The Designers Chic

Among the many highlights of my week is watching my favorite shows. One of them is Dancing with the Stars. I have watched it since the beginning and I could tell by then that the show got me hook, line and sinker. Anyho, yesterday was an amazing show. Each remaining couple had to do 3 dances and by far Mya and Dmitry stood out. After they did the dance it was safe to say they were a shoo-in for the final round and they deserve to be there.

Tonight, watching the semi-final elimination was nerve wracking. As soon and Mya and Dmitry was safe I let out a big sigh of relief ( mura sad ko ug apil sa). One down and 2 more to go. The second to be in the finals were Donny and Kym. The last one was still a surprise for me. Who got eliminated ?Joanna and Derek, what the heck?!@#$. They deserve to be in the Finals, she did a great performance yesterday night. I guess I under estimated the fans of Kelly Osbourne. Let me just say that its good to see Kelly get her life back together but she should have not been in the final round. But in fairness to Kelly her performance was great but not as brilliant as Joanna's. It was actually a toss up between Donny and Kelly for me.

Next Monday, the kiddos are going to be tucked in and sleeping before 8 p.m. I can't wait to see another incredible performance from Mya and Dmitry. By now you can tell that I am rooting for them.... What can I say, Mya is a great performer and Dmitry that gorgeous hunk of a burning love is an excellent teacher. And like Glenn Good man said to Mya " tooty fruity what a booty"


Another Holiday is fast coming up, Thanksgiving. I have come to look forward to this every year since I got here. Its usually another excuse for all the clan to come together, celebrate with laughter and pig out on the many foods laid out. This year I can breathe easy since we will not be hosting it, Its Larry's turn this year. The other thing that I look forward to is the much anticipated Black Friday. The one time in a year where you get rock bottom prices and great buys. Hopefully I can be witness to this big event. Hubby has told me he will drop me off the mall but on a condition I go in the day not early in the morning, besides I would not last 10 minutes out in the cold waiting for the stores to open. I'm hoping to get great deals on apparels, lotions and some other stuff. Workers in the mall better make sure that there barcode scanner is working properly. I have roughly 1 more week to earn some money for my planned black friday shopping, cross my fingers and toes,lol.


Question for wives, do you get along with your in-laws? I know so many women that don't get along with the dreaded In-laws. I am one of the fortunate ones that get along great with my In-laws. It works great because my MIL lives with us. Our house is built with an In-law suite and its perfect for her. She has been nothing but a blessing for us as a family. She watches the kids for me, she drives me around and she treats me like I'm her daughter. If it wasn't for her RA(rheumatoid arthritis)she would still be very very active. I do worry about her sometimes even though we live in the same house. When we do go out somewhere and she stays home I worry that something may happen to her specially since she has been taken to the hospital last year after Thanksgiving. That incident left her scared, she even looked into getting emergency alert system in cases that we may not be there to assist her. I hope to God that nothing like that will happen to her. Now, I make it a point to check on her if she doesn't come out of her room and on times that she is not feeling well at all. She looks out for me and I do the same. Isn't that what a family is all about, looking after each other?


Going to the Chiropractor was really a smart move on my part. I had been having lower back pain on my right side for a long time and it seemed to be getting worse and worse. Stabbing and lower leg pain on my right side was what got me to say I need a Chiropractor. Or course I had to see our primary physician first and she actually recommended that I see one. I was hesitant at first as I didn't know what to expect but there was nothing to worry about. I had been going to my Chiropractor for 12 session and yesterday was my last, so I thought. I was re-examined and I did improve a whole lot. I was advice though to come for another 6 session to really work out the kinks in my body. Thank God we have an excellent insurance Blue Cross Blue Shield or else I would never have been able to afford it. For those living in North Carolina they should really check out Blue Cross Blue Shield NC. It really an excellent insurance if I say so myself. So far, we have been more than satisfied with the coverage and service.
