Renewal of Philippine Passport

It's been 2 weeks since we went to Chicago to renew my Philippine passport. I decided to renew my Phil. passport because I am thinking that it takes so long if I process my US citizenship. We are planning to go down to the Philippines in few months now. I really miss my family so much and I have couple reasons why I want to renew my passport. First is I want that I get my passport as soon as possible. Second, is I need more money to process US citizen. I need more than $1k for that.
By the way, if you are asking how much is the passport renewal it's only $60. But passport and photocopy is another payment but not that much.

Here's the requirements for Renewal of Philippines Passport:
1. Submit 2 identical passport.
2. Submit old passport
3. Submit photocopies
a.1-2 data page of old passport and the page with the latest arrival stamp in the U.S.
b. Alien registration card (green/pink card), for US permanent residents or US visa.
c. Proof of actual residence such as driver's license, state ID, employment ID, or utility bills.
4. If you are married abroad, Report of Marriage (Download the Application).
a. need husband 2 passport ID & your 2 passport ID. Then paste the ID's of you and your husband below the marriage application then photocopy it. If you and your husband will apply in person you can photocopy 3-4 for sure. But if you file alone without your husband just notarize it first. You can do it in the embassy or in your state.

5. Passport Fee $60.

Enjoy your stay in Chicago or either in Washington DC. Be ready for the expenses lol! we paid $150 bucks for 3 nights to park our car. It's ridiculous price. You can not park without paying the parking area. Be ready for the traffic too :) of the big city.

Lastly! enjoy...

Pizza Time

I'm glad that I don't have to work today not like the other Sundays. But it's good though for the paycheck but for now I need some rest.
When I wake up this morning I am planning to sew more cloth diapers. But instead I spent my whole time watching movie with hubby and making homemade pizza.

By the way, it's little bit windy today so we don't feel like going outside and walk around our parameter. We aim to walk at least 20-30 minutes everyday. For now, I tried to eat plant base diet after I learned that I have high bad cholesterol. After a month of trying not to eat fatty foods, I lost 6 lbs now. Then, hubby lost 17 lbs too so I need to learn how to cook a healthy food that is less in fats, salt and sugar. So we maintain our weight and low our cholesterol. I never thought that we will eat a strong plant base food and for the first time. We are meat eater and it's hard for us to change our lifestyle and it's so amazing that hubby and I did it. There's good side of not eating meat, I didn't experience bad cramps and terrible pain during my monthly cycle for this month. I think I have to stay in my diet now for the sake of good health.

Food for thought" You can do all things through Christ who gave me strength :)

My Favorite Day

One of my favorite day is Saturday why? because I could be able to be with my love ones. To be with God, with family, friends and people in the community is my greatest joy. My friends, my hubby and I went to one of the nursing home in the city. They invited us to sing couple songs, I know we are not the greatest singers in the world but one thing I know that we sing songs for the glory of God. I saw teary eyes, when we sing the song entitled "Remember Someone is Praying For you" I know that some of the residence in the nursing home suffering from pain, their health problems and then they missed their families. They need to know that someone cares about them and praying for them. Sometimes I am tempted not to join the group because I need rest and I need to do some stuff but what is couple hours when I/we make people happy. After our program we drove home and we decided to stop by in the nearest lake in our place. I felt great and happy after that I can not hold my hand :) Hopefully we will visit again in another nursing home in a week and visit people in rehab center. Well, that's all for now. I need to finish my laundry and clean our kitchen before I forget. So see yah next time.

TrimFit OS Pocket Diaper

Hi guys hope you are doing great this weekend. Right now, I'm great and I'm taking it easy in a little bit before I prepare our dinner:)
I am thinking to sew more cloth diapers, baby clothing but I need a break. I work more than 8 hours today so I am worthy to have a break. I can say that my body is weak but my mind wanted to work :). My fashion in sewing really want me to do something. Well, yesterday I finished few baby diapers. For some reasons I fall in love to sew baby cloth diapers and then I buy a lot of fabrics. Just last week I got my 25 yards of zebra waterproof fabrics. Boy! I can not denied that I am fabricaholic now. My small sewing room has a lot of fabrics. The problem is I don't have enough time to sew since I am working more than 8 hours a day.
I really enjoyed so much especially when I see my finish products:) Here's the sneak peak of my handmade diapers using TrimFit OS Pocket pattern.
