Halloween, Take 2

It’s our second Halloween here in the UK and the whole trick-or-treating event was better than last year! We had more kids stopping by for candies and Emma came home with a good stash of candies. Now, it’s not that we eat a lot of sweets but, the amount that the kids brought in gave me a good indication of how many families participated in this fun event this year. We had quite a bit of fun the last few days that we’re somewhat thinking of hosting a party and really decorating our house next year. Emma was quite inspired

On a Diet

The last few… hmm… week… days… uhm… something, I’ve been on a diet. Reason: I wore these pair of pants trousers a little bit ago and they were a bit snug. The other day we went for pizza. This place has these really good pizza dough. They’re so much better if dipped into their garlic-butter dip. And I had nine of them, all dipped. This was on top of my veggie pizza. The only reason I knew I consumed nine pieces was because hubby pointed it out (grrr!!). You see, he’s a skeptic. He believes that diet and I don’t

Crispy Fall Air

I don’t like cold weathers but I do love a nice chilly fall day. Even though I now drink hot tea three times a day at 30, 50, or 80 degree weather, there’s nothing better than a hot cuppa when it’s 60 degrees outside. Fall makes dressing up worth while. One gets to layer, add fun pieces like a scarf and a cute hat, and wear boots. Fall gives me an excuse to eat soup everyday. And in terms of photography, there’s nothing that my camera loves better than the golden fall colors. I took some fall pictures of Jovie

Crafty Friday

Had the most fabulous time making cards today with a few village folks. I am not going to post much here about that. Next time! Right now I just want to share some of the digital pages I did using kits from Jessica Sprague and head on the bed. Tired! Did a lot this week! Laters!

Halloween Prep

Me: M, why don’t you help find Jovie a Halloween costume. M: Ok. M took over the computer and five minutes later: M: Mommy, how about this one? Me: Emmaaaa!! NO! Jovie is NOT going to be a peanut for Halloween!! M: But she’ll be a cute little peanut. Me: No! Jovie, what do you want to be for Halloween? Jovie: Princess. Me: There, go find Jovie a princess outfit! M: Ok, mommy… (pout pout) Kids! We’ve been looking at Halloween costumes today just in case M wants something that is either cheaper (than buying here) or can only be

Gymnast #2

How’s your Monday? It was lazy day for us. I had all these cleaning plans but my cleaning inspiration never came (actually I am not even sure if such a thing exist, cleaning inspiration, really?!?!). I did a bit but not like what I had in mind (I had an elaborate Cinderella kind of plan). Oh well. There’s still tomorrow (maybe). It’s gymnastics day again Tuesday and while we’re at the gym I am going to sign Jovie up too for a mommy and tot class. I was going to wait until she’s three, when she can go on her
