I have a long Christmas list mostly my family and close friends. I pretty much done shopping and was finishing up. I am checking online something for my brother I know he will like it and that's what he actually need since he is a band member. I was checking on save on alesis percpad. I still have enough time when I place my order tonight, I am sure to will be here before Christmas.I just hope that i will get the right one that he likes.
Thanksgiving is basically the kickoff of the Holiday season. As usual I did cook everything from scratch. I refused to brine our turkey because I want it simple with no complicated flavor so I stick to my butter rubbed, I used pretty much the same aromatics when it comes to the turkey cavity which is fruits and herbs. A friend of mine shared a good stuffing recipe that became our all time favorite which is smoked oyster stuffing. I made roasted veggies and mini custard-pumpkin pies which also a seller.
I love making crafts; it is my stress buster after working 50 hours a week. I always go to our local craft store but there are times that they don't carry the things that I need for my project so I always go online online for more selections on wood cutouts. I made Christmas ornament made of wood cutout to give away to my friends this Holiday. I mostly used the stars and it came out nice, I am satisfied and happy.

We have plans to go to the mainland and spend time with our family in December. It will be fun because we are planning to go snow skiing. My sister and her family lives in Oregon, she will get us a place in the mountain resort. I am trying to convince my husband to consider Oregon as our home in the future, I just love the place it is so beautiful. We definitely need a snowboard wall mount like my sister. She has it mounted in their garage for easy access on their toys.
We went to have bubble drink yesterday an a well known Thai place where they serve fresh fruits bubble drink. I tried Durian yesterday because I miss eating the fruit, it was my favorite one back hoema nd still my favorite till know although I cannot really find a fresh one here because it is stink. My husband and my friend are not too happy with me in the car because they said it is STINK haha.
It became part of my tradition to collect christopher radko Christmas ornaments every year. I am leaning towards collecting more on his Santa Clause and Christmas tree because I love it personally. I love to collect Santa Clause and Christmas tree so I am looking forward on their 2013 collections. I also collect Christopher Radko with year on it, I am excited.

We usually do something on Sunday like go around the island, hike or check out places but since I start working full-time plus my part-time job, I don't have the time to do stuff although I am not complaining that I work 49 hours but my husband and I usually just rest on Sunday and enjoy our lazy day off.

Last year we had the greatest vacation that started to become our yearly tradition. My friends, my husband and I vacationed to Kauai. It is indeed the best group vacation so far. This year we are planning to do another group trip, we are not settled of the place to go and get lost. We are considering Maui, Big Island Hawaii and maybe Las Vegas and Oregon are in our list. I never been to those places that they are the place I want to check out. I want to do around the island tour in Maui and check out the road to Hana and be amazed of the waterfalls. Big island is perfect vacation during winter time and we agreed to take a trip up Mauna Kea where it snows during winter months and check out the telescope. Well I have no idea why I love Oregon, maybe because I was drawn to a vampire setting which is gloomy, snowy and beautiful mysterious forest. We gave it a try and check out groupon deals and boy oh boy they have so many choices travel deals and most of them are more than 50% off. Now the hard part was choosing the place we want to make another memorable vacation. It is tough to make a decision, I wish I could visit this places one after another on the weekend. Oh well, but we have to pick the best place to go with the help of groupon weekend getaways. We might be able to do two different places, one in Hawaii and one in the Mainland. Let’s go pack our bags!
I am totally ready for a vacation to my home town with my husband and one of my best friends. We decided to have a trio vacation and check out places in the Philippines. We cannot stay longer than two weeks so I have our itinerary ready and pick out few places for our side trip. We decided to stay a few days in Manila before we come back home. We have to go to Cebu where my mother-in-law stays and take a trip north to Bantayan Island which is a tourist destination. We are so lucky to book our trip early because we got the Lufthansa flight deals which is a round trip flight and choice of hotel, although we are not going to stay in Manila the whole time but we have the choice to take the package or just the flight, either way we got the good deal. There are so many places to choose from and they have good deals on international flights too. My husband loves to have a vacation in the Philippines, he loves the warm water. I remember the last time we are vacationing in Philippines, we stayed in a hotel surrounded by water and he stayed on the water the whole day soaking in. We are excited on our upcoming vacation and check out places and also reunite with my friends and family. It is a much needed vacation for me and my husband and I am sure that we will treasure and enjoy the memories.

We just got new TV for our master bedroom; we need to mount it since I am trying to do a minimalist look in our bedroom. I am having fun shopping online lately especially on eBay so when I was looking for mounting bracket for tv I went search online right away and found the right store. It came in the mail and my husband installed it last night. We do enjoy our room more now and I love the clean look that we have in our room.

The value of gold and silver are getting more expensive each year so I believe it will be a good investment. My husband and I decided to go on this route and buy us some of 1881 silver dollar for our collection and investment. I believe this is better than buying and investing on paper currency that my husband's uncle influences us. Yes it did not work and we are still waiting for these currencies to increase its forex value which is a lost in my opinion.

I don't like the idea that people face hard times in their life that threatens their livelihood, but some of these circumstances are hard to avoid. Some people go to bankruptcy, divorce and other things. One of our friends his business got him in trouble; overhead, low bids and legal matter put his business down. He then seeks legal help, lucky he landed into a good lawyer. So if you have legal issues please check raleigh creditor rights bankruptcy lawyer, they will help you get your life back.
