Green Pants...


At this point in my life, the only way I know to dress up a simple black tee is to pair it with a colorful pants and happy heels. I used to think that pants are boring, but colors makes a big difference don't you think? 

Have a happy happy Monday ladies and gentlegays.

Over The Weekend With Mr. & Mrs. Smith


Our family weekend fell on days our friends, Mr and Mrs. Smith was in town. So last Thursday while it rained (what typhoon signal #1 the news were talking about??) we took them swimming. It was cold but Yllac went for it anyway. Only Yllac and of course his Dad braved the icy cold water. 30 minutes later Yllac turned blue. So that was day one of our family weekend. 

Friday turned out much better. Typhoon was gone but it was still a bit cold outside, just perfect for a jacket-kind-of-day. Leaves are falling, our toddler running, and here we have our very own Mr. and Mrs. Smith playing sitters for the day. They even paid us a box of doughnuts so they can get the job. Ah-What??? I must have done something good I do not know about that God blessed me with friends like Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Two free sitters plus a box of donuts in exchange of Yllac for a day? Oh-yeah-oh-sure-what-about-a week?? I could get used to life like this. Do you hear that Mr. & Mrs. Smith? We would love to have you everyday with us. Please don't go back to your home in Japan. You can even sit Yllac for free. Fair deal. No need for another box of doughnuts. My hips says so.....    

It's good to have another fresh pairs of not just one but two sweet hands to carry Yllac and play with him and chase him around. Thank God for friends. Aaahhhh...we miss you Mr. & Mrs. Smith. See you again next time.

And to you (yes you), i wish you a great weekend.

We Do Not Blow Candles Here...


So, for the past few weeks, we've been teaching Yllac to blow out candles. But he won't. In fact, blowing it makes him mad. And you don't want a mad crying baby anywhere near you. Am a tell you, it's hellish. He loves the candlelight. It makes him smile. It's his happiness right now. Yllac + candlelight = bliss.

So tell me, how do you teach a baby to blow out his candles for his upcoming 2nd birthday this December? How? (i know, what kind of a mother am i if I can't teach this simple trick?) Because this whole candle blowing thing feels like rocket science. I am out of blow strategy. Help!

Inspiring ei? A look we can all put together using our own clothes hiding somewhere inside our closet. A maxi dress, chambray shirt, basic tee, printed dress or skirt, colored pants, any flats or heels, colorful scarf, a blazer and we can create some of these looks. Yeah, I know, looking at these pictures makes you wanna kick yourself and scream, "why didn't i think of that?". Me too my friend, me too.

What are you thankful for today?


...having long-distance friends, who works at keeping it.

My friends, my gem. I really am thankful for their lives and friendship. They mean so much to me. I am thankful for their time to let me know what's happening with their lives. To let me know little bits of their personal stories. To let me know a little about their secrets, struggles and be first to know about their joyful news. I don't see them often but I don't feel too far away from them. It warms my heart knowing we are friends growing even more closer and making it work despite distances. And despite distances, I don't feel isolated.

What about you? What are you thankful for today?

Yellow Pants...


Let's take a moment of silence to thank and praise the Lord for these pants. For these yellow pants.....
. ..

Hallelujah Jeeesus H. Christ! You are awesome and sooo faaareeking genius. Remember when He said, love your enemies? Pants are my enemies for such a long time. But lo and behold, two weeks ago I have come to forgive the shortcomings and injustices I have experienced in this piece of innocent clothing and found in my heart to rekindle the old flame I had with it 5 years ago. I mean, look at me. Look at me. LOOK AT MEEEEE! I knooooow!!!! I look good! And Cool. Not bad ei??? Because I won't give you the crotch shot (2nd to the last picture) if i didn't feel this geewd! And that is the first time I tooted my own horn on the record. Gosh, Am telling you, If I looked good in these pants, so can you. If it makes you feel better, I am wearing a LARGE size. But these pants are so magical it hugs all kinds of your leg dimples just fine in all the right places. This is stretch and the waist falls bellow your navel, so I was not worried it will suffocate all my sexy lady lumps on my tummy If you know what i mean. The length of the zipper is perfect and the inseam is not too long (I am sometimes 5'2 by the way) So I just folded it inside the pants. Honestly I have no issues, or any violent reaction for these pants. It is yellow. Perfect. Just the way it is.

So, If you think I was paid to force these pants in your face, No I was not. But I am friends with the owner of  the on-line shop that sells these. If there's such a thing as friendship-compensation, then that's it.
