Rough Weekend for Everyone


February 24, 2013

Well Doug my husband finally got home late last night from the State Wrestling Tournament in Little Rock. Charles tried to stay up but fell asleep about midnight. Doug did not get home until 2 am. It was a rough weekend for everyone, Charles and me missed Doug and Doug had a tough weekend on the mat. His assistant Jason, got really ill and his kids brought home only 2 state medals not the 6 he was expected. Even his returning State Champion got upset in the finals after twice before dominating the kid he lost too in the finals. Good news is though they have a break before Freestyle/Greco Roman season begins in a couple of weeks. I cannot wait until our Spring Break in March either.

My Escabeche


February 17, 2013

The best part of going to the Asian Store A’Chau Oriental Market is getting fresh seafood’s like shrimp, live crabs, and fish. Just the other day I bought shrimp, and fish and I cooked the fish tonight for my dinner. My dish is called Escabeche and the ingredients are ginger, red bell pepper, carrots, garlic, vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, and flour to thicken the sauce. 

Lucky Enough When It Comes to Weather


February 11, 2013

How’s the weather like in your area? Here in Northwest Arkansas, we’ve been very lucky enough when it comes to weather. We have not had any snow yet and I know how much Charles is looking forward to have snow. He cannot wait to make snow angels and snowmen. I am very thankful though when it comes to our weather here in Northwest Arkansas, unlike thousands of people living in the Northeast who’s been affected by the blizzard. Thousands of people are battling with the cold weather and no electricity as well.

Anyway, only a few days left before State Wrestling Tournament and I am planning to stay in Kansas City when Doug is not around on those days. Though gas prices are around $4 and is holding me back from going to Kansas City.

Shopping Can Be Frustrating


February 05, 2013

Shopping for clothing and shoes can be frustrating and time consuming. That’s how I felt the other day when I went shopping in Fayetteville and here in Rogers. I have been planning to buy a new pair of jeans, shoes, and sandals and yesterday I went back home empty handed. There were sandals that I really liked though the store doesn’t have size 5 which is my shoe size. The smallest size available is size 6 and it still feels big for my feet. When I found Skinny Levi’s jeans for my size it was a little bit long. Medium size and I usually get short length so I didn’t buy anything for myself. 

Oh well, how are you feeling today? My husband have already been sick twice this month and Charles had a fever the other night. Thank God Charles is feeling so much better now. It is really impossible for my husband not to get sick because he is around of so many kids at school and most of the kids are sick as well. His assistant wrestling coach is sick again and this time of the year is busiest for wrestling. They have 2 last home wrestling duals, Senior Night, and State Tournament is just couple weeks away. 

Later today, Charles and I are going to watch wrestling. It is also Senior Night and Doug already bought his flowers that he is going to give to his senior wrestlers for their parents. Losing these seniors with the wrestling team would be different specially the girlfriend of Cole, Holly. I have seen how hard a worker she is in helping every dual putting the mats together and other jobs for the team. Holly is very supportive with Cole and I think this couple has already built a solid relationship for their future which is a good thing.

Looking Forward to Watch Super Bowl XLVII


February 01, 2013

With the Super Bowl XLVII just days away, Doug and I are looking forward to watch the game. The Super Bowl XLVII would be very interesting to watch knowing both NFL Head Coaches are brothers. Doug likes both of these teams, San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens. For me it doesn’t matter who will win the game as I never watch any of these teams play football. 

My favorite team, New York Giants never made it to the playoffs so it was kind of disappointing. I do really look forward to see the halftime show. Beyonce is going to perform during halftime show and the Super Bowl commercials as well. Of course we will have a small party with just us three, though we will eat and have fun.
