I have been in the US for almost 6 years yet it still amuses me every time it snows. The beauty of the surroundings is just priceless!

Today, my husband and I were traveling home from Reno and it was snowing. It's been snowing for hours already and I really enjoyed the beauty of the mountains and valleys blanketed with snow.

When we arrived home,  it was not snowing anymore and some of the snow have already been melted. 

My poor snow laden car in the above photo. It has been sitting here alone since Tuesday. I thought it was a cutie though :)

I really wanted to play in the snow like writing my name on it but I was too tired so I just took a photo of my feet instead. I know it is silly :)

I hope the weather will be back to normal tomorrow because my husband doesn't like it especially when he goes to work.

Thank you for visiting! Have a good one!

Loving My New Shoe Organizer!

I've finally found  the perfect organizer for my flat shoes! It is an over-the-door organizer that can hold a dozen pair of shoes and it was pretty inexpensive :) It is also good for crafts, accessories and more! Its size is 19"W x 58"H.

I had two organizers that look like a shoe box style that can be hung inside the closet but I didn't like them. I was planning to give them to my Pinay friend when we were still in Winnemucca but I keep forgetting it and I did not know where they are now, shame! Let me find them in my other room full of junks, hehehe!

I've been wanting to have this kind that I have just got! I am so loving it!

Hair Detangler: Olive Oil by REGIS Designline

Hubby had a new hair cut at a salon in Walmart in Reno last Wednesday and he said he told the Manager about my hair problems such as hair fall and too dry that caused terrible tangles. He asked her their best hair detangler for Asian hair and said the lady recommended this particular product. I was  like, "And did you buy it?" I was hoping he did not because I still have Dove detangler which doesn't really work actually and had tried Garnier product also but to no avail. Of course, my husband did buy it!

So I tried it and I super liked it so far! It makes my hair really soft, shiny and smells good! If you have very fine, dry and frizzy hair, try this Olive Oil by REGIS Designline leave in conditioner. I don't think it is available in supermarkets, try going to salons especially inside WalMart. The price was $10.50 a bottle.

Thanks to my husband. He is the best!

My Pretty in Pink Gloves

At first I thought I do not need a pair until I noticed that my hands became so wrinkly and dry after washing dishes and even after I generously applied hand cream.

So I bought a pair of gloves for washing dishes only and I am very happy with them. I love their color!

I Got Paid by Google Again!

Below is the email I got from Google.

You've been issued a payment from Google AdSense

January 22, 2014 at 6:35PM

Please note that we've recently issued a payment to you for your Google AdSense earnings on Jan 22, 2014. Your payment has been sent and should be arriving shortly. For more information, please log into your account and visit your Payment summary page. You may also be able to find a reference number there to track or pick up your payment. 


The Google Billing Team

Thank you Google!

This has been Google's 3rd payment since I started blogging. The first time was like "unbelievable" to me. They issued a check and I was hesitant to deposit it in my bank. The second time I signed up for a direct deposit and I liked it better. It was not much of a moolah like what "Pro" bloggers get but ain't it cool when you get paid for writing about anything under the sun? 

You can do it too! Do you have pet? Are you into craft? Do you love to cook/bake? Do you travel a lot? How about fashion and make-ups?  Write about it and go from there. It is not easy but you can make it, trust me. If you have questions about blogging, please feel free to leave comment. 

Thank you for dropping by. Have a great one!

My 52-week Money Challenge Jar

My highschool batchmate and Facebook friend, (now Aussie-based), Kimi, posted it on her Facebook wall and I thought it was a great idea. The first week ended yesterday so I hurriedly cleaned the jar of Costco-bought artichoke hearts (hubby and I love them!) to use for this money challenge. 

I had $6 bills in my wallet which is good for 3 weeks so I dropped them all into the jar and made hubby's work schedule as my calendar guide by marking it. I hope he wouldn't mind :)

I hope I can finish this 52-week money challenge. Good luck to me, hehehe!

Thank you for visiting! Have a good one!

New Year "Good Stuff" Jar

I saw this from my sister-in- law's FB wall and I thought it was a great idea to do the same.

I just emptied and cleaned a jar of artichoke hearts, scribbled some notes and dropped it into the jar. I enjoined hubby to do his part and he gave me a silly look, it was priceless, hahaha! I hope he will participate, otherwise it will be boring. Hmm. We'll see what happens!

Thanks for visiting!

The Beauteous Frozen Lake in Round Mountain

Happy New Year!

Hubby and I got bored after we got home from Tonopah to meet our handsome son Chad and his gorgeous wife Jenny yesterday so we drove around Round Mountain. 

The weather was pretty good, I didn't even wear jacket at all while wandering around so I was very amazed when I saw the frozen Lake! I was like, "Woooooow!"
Oh, How I wanted to touch the water! Then I wondered how the fish survived in the icy water :) 

In summertime, RM people are allowed to fish even without fishing license, 2 fish per person a day. Cool, huh? 

I can't wait for the summer to take more photos of this man made Lake!

Thank you for visiting my site, you have a good one!
