Missed Weekend Trips And Mother’s Day Dinner At Home

We missed my husband’s nephew’s birthday party.  And we did not go my in-law’s place for Mother’s Day.  My husband  was not in the mood to travel first weekend of May.  My mother-in-law was working part time on that Mother’s Day weekend.  So we just had a nice dinner here at home with some company of close friends.  My cousin and her family weren’t here because they already had plans that evening.

My husband made some pork ribs and chicken barbeque, cucumber and tomato salad.  We also had corn on a cob, baked garlic bread, and mixed fruits.  Our friend brought pasta salad, grilled milkfish, and rice cake.

As usual, whenever we get together at the table, there no chance to take photos because we’re all focused on eating the delicious meal on the table.

My friend and neighbor left a bit early after dinner because she and a few of our girl friends had to go Sambuca 360, a disco bar in Plano. Well, they said it’s a nice place party goers and disco lovers.  If only I had a babysitter that night, I guess my husband would allow me to go.

We had a wonderful Mother’s Day dinner at home.  Always nice to be with good friends.

First International Flight

Part I

In three days I will be celebrating the 4th anniversary of my arrival here in the US.  Oh how fast the time flies.  My coming here was to marry the wonderful guy I met six years ago.

I flew by myself via Korean Airlines because it has the cheapest airfare from Manila to my point of entry which is Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW).  That was the very first time I flew international.  Korean Air has flights from Manila to DFW at 12 A.M. Saturdays.  The lay-over in Seoul/Incheon Airport is six hours but I did not have enough time to rest, maybe, also because of the excitement I was feeling that I will be with my beloved for good.  We arrived in DFW Airport Saturday at exactly 9:30 A.M.  The time change really gave me a bad jet lag.  Hah!

A Place In Dallas

Good thing about vising Dallas is that I have a place to stay when I need to.  A relative of mine lives in a fully-furnished apartment there.  She was very happy to find an apartment that is close to her work.  All furnishings she needed in a unit are already installed – full kitchen, luxury bedroom, comfy sofas, wi-fi, fridge, and other appliances.

There is no need to stress yourself in finding a place to settle in Dallas because what you should get is a unit where everything you need is in place.  Dallas furnished apartments are convenient, comfortable, and practical.
