As you all know, I’m in Mikkel Paige’s CT for January, I still have to finish some more LOs for my CT teams and actually my mojo is still down. My head is blank and I have no idea how to start my other LOs. I don’t want to fail these nice designers. Anyway, Mikkel has nice things on her shop, try and visit so you can see for yourself. Here’s my take on her Winter Chill Kit and Tile Alphas.

God bless.

My Aunt and her family from Illinois always go on a royal caribbean cruise almost every year. They always go back from the trip raving about how wonderful the trip was as if they had experienced it for the first time. I always wanted to try to go on a cruise for a well deserve vacation but doesn’t have the money to do so. I always think that they are too expensive, that we can’t afford it but my Aunt says otherwise. I hope we can go on a cruise with her family someday.

I don’t believe much about this but thanks Alpha, I had fun knowing I have nice horoscope for this year! 🙂

Our parents after having just a girl and a boy in the family decided that they still want one more child so after 6 years they’ve decided to have our sister, that’s her in the picture with my brother who is just a year younger than me. My sister left for a very important exam and a very crucial one that will decide her future. She flew out of the country to experience winter with just her colleagues, her first time to travel without her family in tow. Being the youngest and the baby of our family, I am just being sentimental that indeed our baby sister is very grown up. I miss her though I know she will still be coming back after 11 days, the house is not complete without her. But of course, I hope she does very well on her interview and examination even if it means she will be staying there for good if so. She really wants this so much and I hope her dreams will come true. She will be coming back on the 13th and will wait for the results here.

So, while she is not at home to watch over the babies with their nannies, I’ve decided to take a leave from the 7th to the 11th. We’re uncomfortable leaving the babies with just their nannies in this big house. They might go up and down the stairs, watch television without permission and just being out of focus with their duties, the nannies are so immature and young and we believe they really need supervision. So after my Holiday break which was last Friday, I still have 1 more week to stay at home and be with my son and my nephew. Heaven. Oh btw, did I tell you that Dustin already has a tooth almost out and another one coming? He never had signs of teething, except for the drooling which is not too much. I discovered the tooth last December 21, our Christmas party at work, I had to feed him biscuits using my fingers when he suddenly bit me. It was blissfully painful. My son is really growing up! 😛 Happy Sunday with your family! God bless 🙂

Did I tell you that aside from being so low tech regarding techie stuffs and hospital equipments, I also hate our hospital’s structure aesthetically? The structure looks old and office furniture are not very pleasing to the eyes. If I am just the boss, I will have a proposal to make a 2-floor building where all the departments will be together and will have the furniture replaced, have the equipments up to date and the technology high tech so that the place will be pleasing not just for the patients but for the employees to have more enthusiasm to work and serve.

Saw this from Jean‘s and Alpha‘s blogs so I wanted to snag this…

Yes I know, I’ve been married for two years now and honeymoon was way over and done that deal for me and the hubby and we have in any way, no plans of having a second honeymoon, no plans of having our second baby… Please! But someone very close to me is getting married this year and honeymoon apart from preparing the wedding and the wedding itself is very exciting to think of and I thought that going to Cold Michigan is a very suitable place for honeymooners. The temperatures can really cool down but everything can heat up especially if you are staying in one of those Michigan bed and breakfast inns, hotels can be very expensive and sometimes unromantic compared to those romantic, historic and homey places that b&b’s can offer. Definitely will suggest this to my dear best friend, as adventurous and exciting as she is as a person I bet she will definitely consider this.
