Free Clothes Day!

What an exciting day this was! My sister and I gave away at least 75% of our joint wardrobe for FREE. What a great turn out it was with more than 10 people in attendance! Thanks to all who contributed and all that relieved us of our baggage! It feels good to be free!

Something Fun

I've decided that I needed to go out and do something crazy! So I'm giving away most of my clothes...oh and my sisters too! So far I've already filled 2 huge boxes of my clothes alone! I'm really excited to do this. It's another way I can minister to the girls within my church. Believe me, I know money can be tough now and days...so I thought it would be awesome if I could just give you my clothes!

I want to show off my fun poster I made as well...but i'm not sharing my information with strangers!! Haha, if you are from Community Bible Church and would like to participate, just leave me an email alyssaraetiongco@gmail.com and I could give you more info.

Oh! Also, if you yourself have clothes you want to give away let me know!!

"...And works with her hands in delight." Proverbs 31:13b


trade, the skilled practice of a practical occupation
make by hand and with much skill

I've decided to pursue my "duh, why didn't you think of that before" skill. My joy and passion comes out when I craft so why not take a stab at it and make something.

the end.

House Wife

I've been married for about 5 months now and figured I need to update the world on life as a house wife. Yes, you are correct...I said house wife. Maybe a few weeks after I got laid off from a horrible employer (yes I can say that because they were) my lovely husband proposed. Since then, for the four months of our engagement I've decided to hold off looking for a job and take on the biggest one of all, planning my wedding.

So since the day of the wedding, I have still stayed true to my decision on holding off looking for a job (although I do frequently check craigslist because I'm curious what's out there). By the way, can I correct myself? I know I said "MY decision" but the decision was ours and of course ultimately Gods! Through prayer we've come to the conclusion that I, Alyssa Rae Tiongco, does not need to work.

Scratch that again...I mean I do still work, being a house wife is a lot of work with a lot of love as my income. I've dedicated this time into pouring out my time to keep the home a home that glorifies the Lord. As I do that...I work, work unto the Lord. So on to my next blog post that I feel is necessary to keep separate.

since you waited so patiently...

So it was a Thursday night, yes random day. We decided to go out to dinner, we usually do anyways. We went for Pizza in some restaurant in Concord, nothing fancy, nothing out of the ordinary.

Reggie...light bulb...says "Since we're in Concord, lets go to the mall and buy Hailey a gift (a bday party we were attending that Saturday)" and of course I say yes to the mall! What girl wouldn't?

After dinner, we head for Sun Valley mall. He says "I love you" and we get out the car. While we're walking in, we walk past Helzberg Diamonds.

Reggie says, "Hey since we're here, can we check your ring size?"
I say, "Ehhhh, now? I don't want to"
Reggie: "Come on, Lord willing when that day comes I can be sure!"
Me: "Ok, i guess"

So we walk in, we ask for help from one of the employees. A woman is glad to help us out. While I'm trying to scope out some fancy jewelry, Reggie is tugging on my arm not allowing me to go anywhere. As we are being helped by the employee, we walk further into the store.

As I'm looking at all the display cases filled with gorgeous jewelry, I stumble upon one display case in the store that is filled with flowers and besides the flowers is 1 ring, which is unusual because most of the cases have at least 5 pieces of jewelry. It didn't hit me yet. While I'm looking at that I'm thinking in my head "ooh, i like that ring". Reggie stops me and says, "Actually I was wondering if you can try on that ring" as he points to the display case with the flowers. I look, and the employee takes the ring out of the display case and hands it to Reggie.

First I say, "Are you serious??!"
Then Reggie gets on one knee and pops the question, "Alyssa, will you marry me?"

I start crying like a baby and say "YESSSSS!!" while the employee busts out her camera phone and starts taking pictures.

After I say yes and try to collect my tears not knowing more is about to flow out, all my future bridesmaids and groomsmen and disciplers, etc. come running down the stairs with cameras and video cameras to greet us!

all I can say is Praise God! PRAISE GOD!!! Isn't Christ amazing?

Oh, and btw...the flowers were for me also!
