It was approved in September 2016!

Ok, ok. I might not have been able to update the “blog” side of this website, but most of you who are following my timeline found here, you would know that I didn’t completely forget about updating my I-751 Removing of Conditions Process.


2015: In Review

2015 was rather a really busy year for the Presson household. It was mostly a year focused on work for both Scruffy and I, just a little bit of fun and travel in between.

It’s the first day of 2015, and I finally get some down time from work and chores just to write this blog post, looking back at how our 2014 went.
2014 was most definitely one for the books. It was a very fruitful and productive year (also the busiest!) for both my husband and I. So let’s start, shall we?

Yes, I’m alive. I’ve been pretty busy with work and chores. I also am working on the KnowledgeBase and some parts of hence I’ve been running behind on “Life As Mrs. Presson”, “#ScruffyQuoteSunday”, and the “K1 Visa Holder Interviews”. This blog is not even 100% done! So much to do, so little time. Sigh.

But anyway, as promised, here’s a series of blog posts with tips about our recent trip to Orlando, Florida. Read on! :)

Happy 1st Birthday,!

One year ago, today, I wrote my first blog post on It was mostly a result of boredom. I was still preparing for my AOS, and couldn’t work because I had to wait for my EAD / Work Permit. At first, it was just going to be my personal blog documenting my journey as an immigrant wife (and future mother), but it somehow evolved into something better – a guide for those who are in the same process as we were before. It now serves as a guide to couples who are planning to / have filed for their Fiancé(e) petitions and K1 visas.

This Fourth of July that I just recently celebrated with my husband wasn’t my first Independence Day celebration here in the U.S. Five years ago, I went to California to visit family and friends.

Flashback Friday: What Happened During My K1 Visa Interview at USEM

One year ago today, June 13th 2013, I had my K1 Visa Interview at the US Embassy Manila. I still can’t believe it’s been a year already. It seems like it was just yesterday.

It’s a very long blog post… but THIS is my ultimate #FlashbackFriday.

2013: In Review

By Erika Presson

January 1, 2014

2013 was definitely my year. Correction, 2013 was definitely OUR year. It’s not an “I/ME” anymore. It’s a “WE/OUR” now. Counting our blessings, it was more ups than downs. And we’re very thankful for that.
I will not bore you with a long post, but I will summarize our year in Photos. These are just the highlights. (And sorry friends if our photos are not here. Only means I don’t have a copy! Send them to me plz! Kthxbai~)

ALSO: No next-year-I-promise resolution crap. One should strive to make oneself better every single day and not because it’s the “New Year”. Just sayin’.
