Moving on

The election is finally over, but some people are still in denial that Mr. Pres. Donald Trump won the election--fair and square. Mrs. Hillary Clinton conceded her defeat with courage and grace; I really hope that the people should give Pres. Trump a chance to prove his worth. I hope that we can all unite for the good of our country, and help our newly elected president to make America great again.

Moving on, I would like to thank and honor all the veterans for their service to our country. Their sacrifices should never be forgotten--we are able to speak freely, vote freely, and walk freely because of them.  
To honor my veteran of a husband, I made him a simple but delicious fried pork chops for dinner. It is very easy to make, and I think anybody can add this for their dinner repertoire. 


6 Pork Chops (Bone-in or out--your choice)
2 Tbsps. Garlic Pepper
2 Tbsps. Ground Red Pepper
1 Tbsp. Dried Mixed Herb (Rosemary, Parsley, etc)
1 Tbsp. Cavender's Seasoning
1/4 cup butter
Vegetable Oil


1. Tear foil into a large rectangular shape to season the chops.
2. Mix all the ingredients except the butter and the oil into a bowl.
3. Rub the dry mixture onto the chops, turn; repeat until all the mixture is gone.
4. Let sit for at least 15 minutes (or whenever you want. Refrigerate the pork if you plan to      leave it longer.)
5. Spray the large frying pan with a nonstick spray.
6. Turn on medium-heat for 1 minute.
7. Pour enough vegetable oil to cover the pan but not too much.
8. Fry to chops at a time--turning after five-minutes.
9. Cook until the temperature reaches at 145*.
10. Place on top of a paper towel, let rest undisturbed for 10 minutes.

*Note: Always check the meat's doneness using the meat thermometer. If you opt-in to using a bone-in chop, check the doneness at the thickest part of the meat--making sure the tip of thermometer does not touch the bone.

Hello world! Today is the first day of a new year and I feel great! Sure, I am only at home being cozy and avoiding the frigid temperature outside but I am in the moment of planning what this new year will bring into my life. Scratch that! What great improvements I can deliver into this new year! I don’t want to make an outrageous list that is impossible to commit into so I will only make a promise to do better this year. I will try not to submit myself into a stressful situation. As I think about my biggest problem in 2018 it was by acting without thinking which only elevated my stress level. This year, I have to consider that I cannot help what situations that will come into my life, all I can do is to wait and analyze before reacting to the situation. So this is my only promise to myself and I will try my hardest to commit to this promise because after all, it will benefit my health and sanity! Cheers to a brand new year

Of Bread & Blanket

Oh looky, September is here already and I have accomplished two things on the first day! I baked a chocolate chip banana bread and I finished crocheting Katie’s baby blanket! I have been working on the baby blanket on and off for about two weeks now. I had to bring it to work and fiddled with it during breaktime to make sure that it will be done before her baby shower this Friday—which I cannot attend due to poor time-management by whoever organized it. Besides me, the only other person who is close with Katie in the entire workplace is Irina, and we both get out at 2 p.m. (the party is at 3!). So, the only two people she wants to attend on that shower will not be there! Like I said, poor time-management by whoever organized it. We will both try to make it but I don’t think it will happen since we both have to pick up our kids from school. Nevertheless, we already have gifts for her baby. It just sucks we can’t be there.

So anyway, moving on to a more positive note, my chocolate chip…

Hair Do

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post from Divatress but all opinions are mine.

Have you ever looked at somebody else's hair and wished that you could have the same? I have! I always have long, fine, straight hair and yes, not to brag but a lot of people like my hair but to be honest, it needs more volume and more body.

I have always been jealous of my cousin's hair. She always have that full hair with the right amount of volume and wave and I thought it was always the hair I really wanted. I have tried going to the hair salon and had my hair curled  but I didn't know how to take care of it so it didn't come out great, so I accepted my fate--I will have this plain straight hair with not enough volume and body.

Fortunately there are beautiful half wigs that I can rock on during special occasions. They have tons of wigs to choose from short, straight, curly, or those amazing weaves. You can choose from real human hair, synthetic, or human hair blend. You can create your o…
