I was planning of sending a balikbayan box to my family back in the Philippines. I haven’t tried it yet so I asked my friend how much it had cost for her when she sent one a few months ago. I asked her about the size of the box, the location of the store where I needed to pick up and drop off the box and if there is a charge to the recipient when they receive the box. She gave me the answers and right after I got all the information that I needed, I told my husband about it and he didn’t like the idea of sending a balikbayan box at all. His reason was that shipping is expensive and he would rather have me send money so they can choose and buy what they want for themselves.
A few weeks ago I went shopping and bought some stuff for my siblings and parents. Since I am not planning on vacationing anytime soon in the Philippines and I can’t send the balikbayan box as well, I will just have to wait and let the stuff sit around here in the house until I can bring it with me on our next trip there.
Since I am a thrifty shopper, I am always in the hunt for bargains and deals. Just a few weeks ago, I bought two bikini sets for under $20. My husband said I did not have the need for more swimwear but the deal was hard to pass up so I bought two more to add to my collection.

Last year, I was at 110 lbs. That’s the heaviest I had been ever. Even though I was that heavy, I haven’t been to the point that I start wearing plus size dresses. At that time, my belly was starting to hang over my pants and was becoming quite embarrassing. My hubby said that he did not mind it but I felt that I really needed to find a way to lose some weight. When I went for vacation to the Philippines spring of last year, everybody there thought that I must be pregnant. Anyway, if you are looking for homecoming dresses plus size, there is a sale going on for that at Sydney’s Closet. There you can save big on 2013 plus-sized prom dresses in must-have colors and styles.

My hubby has several different kinds of shirts. He has plaid shirts that I recently bought for him. I am not the kind of person that closely pays attention to brand names. For me, as long as the clothes meet my needs and are in the range of my budget, that is all that matters. That is probably because I don’t have a big budget for my shopping.

My younger brother’s girlfriend is now a graduating student in the nursing school. She will soon need nursing dresses and other nursing uniforms for her job. I haven’t met her yet personally but I have heard that she is a topnotcher in her class and possibly will graduate from college with honors. With her great accomplishments, I am sure she has a bright future ahead of her. I am looking forward to meeting her on my next trip to the Philippines this fall.
