hearthrob in the making

Looking at the picture above, I am filled with so much pride that my baby has such a sweet personality. He is always smiling and laughing and into playing. He rarely cries, not even when he falls flat on his face and gets scratches. See the smile on his face in that picture? It's all because there were endless numbers of leaves in front of him that he could murder. Lol!

And here, I have found the perfect scrapbooking closet. Now, I just have to find someone who can make it for me. Sigh. Isn't it cool? O am I just being a geek?

last hurrah before school starts

My family and I went to Tagaytay Highlands today. We had so much fun since it's an exclusive place for members only and one cannot get in without a member with you. That's not the reason why we had fun though. We had fun coz the place was so nice, the air was crisp and clean, my tornado kept running around, we had really good food, played bowling and billiards, all of it FOR FREE! Yep ... it was free. Hubby was not with us since he had a trip of his own to Puerto Galera with his cousins.

Here are some pictures of the view of the place. Enjoy and tell me what you think.

Kianna bowling ... she actually scored at 78pts ... this being her first game!

I can't believe it ...

You know how a lot of people would buy planners at the end of the year or at the start of the year and be all excited that they have a new planner, imagining how they would fill it up and write on it every single day and then end up forgetting about the planner after March?
You do? Yeah? Well, I was one of them and I hated seeing the planner looking forlorn. So this year, I decided to really make use of my planner and I'm happy to say that it's almost June now and my planner has been written on every single day. Whee!!!

Do you have a planner? Do you make use of it or forget about it after March?

kitchy kitchen items

I loved it! It's cheerful and functional and a great way to add pizazz to something so ordinary. Soon I plan to add some wafflemaker, breadmaker, and other kitchen stuff in multitude of colors. It would be so cool.

What in your kitchen draws the most attention?

a thinking blogger

Kooky Kay of Simple Pleasures

Not only does Kay share tales of her sweet Lil Tornado, she also created a successful mini-swap. She writes about her life and times in the Philippines always ending with a question for the readers. I should also mention that she has a fantastic sense of style, loves Starbucks and collects magnets, too :-)

GrayMama gave me the thinking blogger award. I am so touched. I have seen this award in so many blogs that I visit and have been coveting one. Thank you so much.

I am also happy to announce that to those people who I owe a package too, soon it will come because as of next week, I am finally out of my debt to my Mom. Lol! Yep, I owe my Mom money so I had to pay her first. Lesson learned for me is to never go catalogue shopping, you just don't see how the price piles up. You think that it's all small stuff and then whoa! You're under a Smokey Mountain like the one in Manila.

Has this ever happened to you?

scrapbook crazy

I am so into scrapbooking ... I feel addicted to it but it's weird you know ... I'm into buying stuff related to it or that I can use for it but the actual scrapbooking ... it seems to have gone up and left me ... I can't think of a single layout that I like even when I use my book about layouts. I feel like I'm cheating.

You ever felt that way?

relaxed and stuffed

straw mat and chairs where we ate ... a bit dark, sorry

Yesterday, my twin brothers came over for a visit. We hanged out and come late afternoon, decided to cook some dinner. Since it was also very hot inside the house, my MIL decided to eat outside in the lanai. Here are some pictures. We laid out some straw mats and had 2 electric fans to make sure that there are no mosquitoes.

chocolates anyone?

Whenever I feel down, chocolates would always bring me the giddy light feeling that I need. For me, there's just something soothing about indulging in chocolates. Maybe because it brings back memories of my childhood or times when I was just hanging out with friends and my greatest worries were if I was going to get the lead part in the school play.

What does chocolate remind you of? Does it soothe you the way it does for me?
