Ipod/Iphone speaker dock

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Yamaha. All opinions are 100% mine.

When I miss home I always listen to Tagalog song's on my Ipod that I downloaded before I left my Country. There are just times when I get sad and listening to music would ease all my worries. I take my Ipod when we are on a road trip as well because my husband and I listen to different genres of music, I just listen to my chosen song's so I wont be stuck in a car listening to his loud music.

Anyway, I really wanted to get a Yamaha PDX-60, it's an Ipod/Iphone speaker dock where I can just put my Ipod there and listen to my favorite song. What I like about it is that they have a pink model which will match my Ipod plus I can charge my Ipod with this dock. According to it's feature it has the highest sound quality,easy to operate and low power consumption which is really awesome so you can save from your energy bill.
It has "yAired"a Yamaha original wireless technology that will instantly get you connection, no sound delays and quality sound with deep, rich bass. This item would definitely be included on my wish list for Christmas, I'm crossing my fingers that we would get one soon. What are you waiting for, let the rhythm get you and get one now.

Making of a Military wife

Making of a Military Wife

When the good Lord was creating Wives, he was into his sixth day of overtime.

An angel appeared and said, "You're having a lot of trouble with this one. What's wrong with the standard model?"

And the Lord replied, "Have you seen the specs on this order? She has to be completely independent, but must be sponsored to get on post; have the qualities of both father and mother during deployments; be a perfect hostess to 4 or 40; run on black coffee; handle emergencies without a manual; be able to handle flu, birthdays and moves around the world; have a kiss that can cure anything from a child's torn Valentine to a husband's weary day; have the patience of a saint when waiting for the Unit to return home; and have six pairs of hands."

The angel shook her hand slowly and said, "Six pairs of hands... no way!"

And the Lord answered, "Don't worry, we'll make other military wives to help. Besides it's not the hands that are causing the problem, it's the heart. It must swell with pride in her husband, sustain the ache of separations, beat on soundly when it's too tired to do so and be large enough to say, "I Understand" when she doesn't, and 'I love you' regardless."

"Lord," said the angel, touching his sleeve gently. "Come to bed... finish this tomorrow!"

"I can't," said the Lord. "I'm so close to creating something unique. Already I have one who heals herself when she's sick, can feed three unexpected guests who are stuck in the area due to bad weather, and can wave good-bye to her husband, from a pier, off a runway and understand that it is important to his country that he leaves."

The angel circled the model of the military wife very slowly. "It's too soft," she sighed.

"But tough," said the Lord excitedly. "You cannot imagine what this woman can do or endure."

"Can it think?"

"Can it think? It can convert 1400 to 2 p.m."

Finally, the angel bent over and ran her finger across the cheek. "There's a leak," she pronounced. "I told you that you were trying to put too much into this model."

"It's not a leak," said the Lord. "It's a tear."

"What's it for?" asked the angel.

"It's for joy. Sadness. Disappointment. Pain, loneliness and pride!"

"You are a genius," sighed the angel.

The Lord looked somber and replied, "I didn't put it there."

ultrafast internet

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Charter. All opinions are 100% mine.
I am forever thankful to the internet, this is where I met my husband four years ago, now that I'm here this is the only way I can communicate with my family back home. I wouldnt be here blogging right now if not for the internet too, I'm a stay at home mom and when my children are taking a nap I am always surfing the net, reading the news, shopping online, play games, downloading music and many more, of course I cant do all of these thing's if my internet connection is not fast like charter ultra fast 60 .

Charter’s Ultra60 Mbps offers one the fastest internet speed here in the States, it is currently offered in Saint Louis and Southern California. You can compare the difference of  60 Mbps internet speed, from downloading movies, playing online games and many more at a super fast speed like no other, multitasking would be easier with this kind of internet speed. With the new phatband technology the higher speed is possible, you cant get this speed with a DSL connection. I would surely want this kind of speed on my internet because Im always using internet during my spare time, I couldn't imagine life without internet but then again that's just me.

Military Spouses Residency Relief Act signed into law

The White House

Office of the Press Secretary

For Immediate Release November 11, 2009 Statement by the President on S.475
Today I have signed into law S. 475, the "Military Spouses Residency Relief Act". This Act, among other things, would provide that when a service member leaves his or her home State in accord with military or naval orders, the service member's spouse may retain residency in his or her home State for voting and tax purposes, after relocating from that State to accompany the service member.

When the military orders service members to move, spouses who move with them often have to pay taxes in a new State or locality and lose the right to vote in the place considered to be home. This legislation will alleviate these and other burdens on our military families. As the Congress has recognized, and as the legislative history reflects, this legislation is an important means of maintaining the morale and readiness of our Armed Forces and significantly enhances the ability of our military to effectively recruit and retain these highly valued service personnel.

Letter to a Military wife

While I have never had the pleasure of meeting you or your husband,
I felt the need to write you and express a very deep feeling that I have in
my heart.

I, as a person, am not brave. I do not tackle things head on, as I hate
confrontation. I will travel 100 miles out of my way just to avoid a conflict.
I am an American woman that has no idea what is going on in the military
other than what I hear on the news.

I have never had to let go of someone so that they could go fight for
people that they didn't know, people that sometimes do not appreciate or
understand what they are fighting for.

I have never had a sleepless night of worry because of a report that
another bomb has exploded and I still haven't heard from my husband.

I have never had to wait for months on end to hold the one that I loved

I have never had to tell my children that daddy wasn't coming home
tonight because he was so far away fighting for something that they aren't
yet old enough to understand.

I have never had to hold my head high and suppress the tears as I hear
that it will be at least another six months of separation before my loved one
gets to come home.

I have never had to deal with a holiday away from the one that I thought
I would share every day of my life with.

And I have never had to feel the panic rising in my heart at the sound of
a ringing phone or knock at the door for fear that it is the news that everyone
is terrified of getting.

For the reasons listed above, I can not tell you that I understand how you
feel. I can not tell you that you must be strong. I can not say that you shouldn't
be angry, because you "knew what you were getting into when you married a
military man". I can not say these things because I have never had to walk in
your shoes.

What I can say for certain is that because of your unselfish acts of bravery and
your husbands willingness to stand up for those who see him as "just another
soldier" - - I will never have to walk in your shoes.

I do understand that as a military wife you are expected to uphold a certain amount
of control, but I never understood how you could do it, until now. I have figured out that
you are not like other women. You are of a special breed. You have a strength within you
that holds life together in the darkest of hours, a strength of which I will never possess.
The faith you have is what makes you stand out in a crowd; it makes you glow with emotion
and swell with pride at the mention of The United States of America.

You are a special lady, a wonderful partner and a glorious American.

I have more respect for your husband than I could ever tell you, but until recently I never
thought much about those that the soldier leaves at home during deployment.

Until this moment I could never put into words exactly what America meant to me.

Until this moment, I had no real reason to.... Until I heard of you.

Your husband and his military family hold this nation close, safe from those who wish to hurt
us...but you and those like you are the backbone of the American family. You keep the wheels
in motion and the hearts alive while most would just break completely down. Military families
make this nation what it is today.

You give us all hope and you emit a warming light at the end of a long dark tunnel.

Because of you and your family...I am able to be me. I am able to have my family. I am able
to walk free in this great land. Because of you and your family, I can look ahead to the future
with the knowledge that life is going to be okay. Because of you and your family, I can awake to
a new day, everyday.

I realize that you are a stronger person than I will ever be because of these things and I just
wanted to take the time today to say thank you to you and your family for allowing me that freedom.

I will never be able to repay this debt to you, as it is unmatchable. However, I hope that you know
that no matter where you are...what you are doing...what has happened today...or what will happen
tomorrow...Your husband will NEVER be "just another soldier" to me.... And you, dear sweet lady,
will never be forgotten.

You are all in my prayer's everyday and I pray that God will bring you back together with your loved
one safely.

May God Bless You!
