Have you ever heard of "Girl Scout Cookies"? Have you ever tried one? The first time I heard of girl scout cookies was when I moved here in the US from the Philippines. Yep, that's right! Anyhow speaking of girl scout cookies, our niece is selling girl scout cookies to raise money for charity. So her dad came by yesterday to drop the cookies that we ordered from her. It is my first time to taste one of these cookies, and it is delicious. I love the caramel delites than thin mints....hehhehe!

Your Sleeping Position Says You Need Peace
You are calm and rational person with a good deal of balance in your life.
Friends consider you to be kind, caring, and truly loyal.
You are easy going and trusting. However, you are too sensible to fall for mind games.
Open to the world, you are not afraid to be yourself.
If you don't get enough sleep, you are: Able to cope
It's hard to sleep next to you because: You're a bed hog
All of us am sure have our own sleeping position. Hubby and I always hold our hands till we fall asleep, but then when we woke up we find each other sleeping on different positions. Very weird. How about you? What is you sleeping position?

I didn't know what to expect when I arrived here for the first time from the Philippines because I didn't know anybody. I was overwhelmed to meet all of Greg's family members. Despite of the fact that Greg's family had a funeral, they still managed to give us a bridal shower. I am very thankful to have in-laws like them.
Some of you may have known that Greg came from a huge family. Greg is the number 11th among 14 children. He has 7 brothers and 6 sisters. Who could have ever thought that his parents could have raised 14 kids? I thought in the beginning that only Filipino people could afford to do this...hehhehhe!You might have thought that they came from different marriages, but it was all one marriage. They we're raised by devoted Catholic parents.
And for the record, only 2 of Greg's brothers married Americans. One married a Hungarian, next brother married to a Mexican, the other one married to a Nicaraguan, his brother before him married to a Hawaiian Japanese, and last but not the least....me from the Philippines. Akesha is number 32nd among the 33 grandchildren. Anyhow, just a thought of sharing this to everyone.

These photos were taken 2 years ago at Half Moon Bay. While we're driving on our way home we stopped at this huge garden store, and bought some flowers and plants for my garden. I was amazed how huge the place is. It took me 45 minutes to finished roaming around the place. Apparently, some of the flowers and plants I bought from this place were dead, and I left few of them in our condo ...hhehehe!

Have you ever thought about how on a woman’s hand a wedding ring always hides in the shadow of the engagement ring? Now, this is true even if your engagement ring is a slender band with a tiny sparkling diamond. But maybe there is a story to tell here.
Before I'm going to start my piece, I will share what Greg has stated on his website.
"I was hoping to get married in my 20s, but that never happened for me. I am glad I didn't because I wouldn't have met my soulmate if I got married in those years. After I graduated from Sacramento State, I joined a penpal club where I met my wife. We corresponded through the mail for a while and then I went to the Philippines to meet her. After we first met, I knew she was the one for me. After I got back to America, we started talking on the phone quite a bit. I was still going to school, but I knew I wanted to get married when I graduated. I proposed to Demcy over the phone and surprisingly, she said yes. I flew over there during my school break and we got married on Christmas Eve."
(Our First Date)
Our engagement/ wedding story maybe different from yours, but we made the best of it. Hubby and I have known each other through letters. I wrote my first letter to him when I was my 4th year college. It took us 8 months of corresponding with each other, and then he decided to see me in person. We started our relationship after we met. I am glad that my parents didn't disagree with the decision I made because in the beginning they were against of our relationship. Some of you may not know....I am the only daughter and first granddaughter in my family, so it is obvious that my family is overprotective of me.
It was November 2004 when he proposed over the phone, and I was very anxious to tell my family about it. I know that it is a woman's dream to walk down the aisle with her white dress and so on.....but ours was a simple celebration with my family, officemates, and friends. We may not have a luxurious and a grand wedding celebration, but we had a wonderful time together.
So I guess that is all I can share to you guys.
Now it is my turn to tag all my married friends here in the blogosphere....come and grab this guys! Be proud!!!!...hehhehe...:)
