On Vacation

Hope and Pray

When I'm excited to see my family, when everything is beyond my reach.. something will just come out and will make me feel worried than happy. This is what I feel today.
I called my mother and sister this afternoon and found out that my brother was sent home by his company abroad. He is a seafarer. For the reasons that he needs to undergo some check-ups and probably take some medications. I'm so worried now.. I was asking them what happened to him, why all of a sudden he was sent home? It was really unexpected. Tomorrow he is going to see a doctor for his high blood pressure and painful chest. I just hope and pray that he is free from any serious health problem.

Just happy to find out that big bags are still trendy. I love big bags! I'm always carrying a bag that hold everything I need including my little girl's feeding bottles. By the way, thanks again everyone for visiting my page and for leaving messages and comments! Merci Beaucoup! Here are my top choices:

I love the design and colors of Chloe transitions color block bag.Who wouldn't love Louis Vuitton? Definitely not me! :)
I love the soft leather and neat design of Marc Jacobs Mercer Peet Tote.
Last but not the least, Tod's D-Bag Grande. It might be common but I love the classic design.

I was tagged by Abie. Thank you sis! :)
Anyways, here’s the drill started by Mitch of When Silence Speaks:

If you still keep your baby’s first 3 days photos, We would love to see them. Label them as 1st, 2nd or 3rd day (as shown below). After that, please post the most recent one, one photo will do. You can post as much as you want though. I’m sure you will realize and tell yourself “seems like yesterday“.

It's true.. seems like yesterday she's so little and fragile. Just the same as I didn't realize that a lot has been changed already. How long will I keep her as "my precious little girl"? I just hope "forever." "I love you Elyse, Mom and Dad loves you so much!"

I would love to share this to Jane, Joey and Maybelle.

Will You Be My MAC?

Lately, I'm having a hard time scrapping in my laptop. I don't know if it's because of my laptop or me not-so-inspired to finish a single lay-out. I think it's both! ;) My laptop and digiscrapping are my best friends.. being a stay-at-home-mom i can somehow say that it is "my life" as well. I love the wide screen of my laptop! For digiscrappers like me it surely count, right? To make the story short, I think I need to say goodbye to my laptop which I believe will soon fulfill its purpose. I'm getting interested with MAC, though I'm still researching the pros and cons and of course I need to ask myself a million times if I'm really ready to switch. ;) I love MAC because of the design, yes I admit! and the rich colors that will make my digiscrapping more fun! As of this moment, I like MACBook Pro. But my husband love to have MACBook Air. Hmmmm...

What do you think guys? By the way, anybody here digiscrapping with MAC?

Thank you for your interest, and it had better be genuine and non-sexual. Please allow four to six years for processing.

You will be contacted in writing if you are approved. Please do not try to call or write (since you probably can't, and it would cause you injury). If your application is rejected, you will be notified by two gentlemen wearing white ties carrying violin cases (you might want to watch your back) .

To prepare yourself, start studying Daddy's Rules for Dating.

Daddy's Rules for Dating

Your dad's rules for your boyfriend (or for you if you're a guy):

Rule One:
If you pull into my driveway and honk you'd better be delivering a package, because you're surely not picking anything up.
Rule Two:
You do not touch my daughter in front of me. You may glance at her, so long as you do not peer at anything below her neck. If you cannot keep your eyes or hands off of my daughter's body, I will remove them.
Rule Three:
I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys of your age to wear their trousers so loosely that they appear to be falling off their hips. Please don't take this as an insult, but you and all of your friends are complete idiots. Still, I want to be fair and open minded about this issue, so I propose this compromise: You may come to the door with your underwear showing and your pants ten sizes too big, and I will not object. However, in order to ensure that your clothes do not, in fact come off during the course of your date with my daughter, I will take my electric nail gun and fasten your trousers securely in place to your waist.
Rule Four:
I'm sure you've been told that in today's world, sex without utilizing a 'Barrier method' of some kind can kill you. Let me elaborate, when it comes to sex, I am the barrier, and I will kill you.
Rule Five:
It is usually understood that in order for us to get to know each other, we should talk about sports, politics, and other issues of the day. Please do not do this. The only information I require from you is an indication of when you expect to have my daughter safely back at my house, and the only word I need from you on this subject is: 'early.'
Rule Six:

I have no doubt you are a popular fellow, with many opportunities to date other girls. This is fine with me as long as it is okay with my daughter. Otherwise, once you have gone out with my little girl, you will continue to date no one but her until she is finished with you. If you make her cry, I will make you cry.
Rule Seven:

As you stand in my front hallway, waiting for my daughter to appear, and more than an hour goes by, do not sigh and fidget. If you want to be on time for the movie, you should not be dating. My daughter is putting on her makeup, a process than can take longer than painting the Golden Gate Bridge. Instead of just standing there, why don't you do something useful, like changing the oil in my car?
Rule Eight:

The following places are not appropriate for a date with my daughter: Places where there are beds, sofas, or anything softer than a wooden stool. Places where there is darkness. Places where there is dancing or holding hands. Places where the ambient temperature is warm enough to induce my daughter to wear shorts, tank tops, midriff T-shirts, or anything other than overalls, a sweater, and a goose down parka - zipped up to her throat. Movies with a strong romantic or sexual themes are to be avoided; movies that feature chain saws are okay. Hockey games are okay. Old folks homes are better.
Rule Nine:

Do not lie to me. I may appear to be a potbellied, balding, middle-aged, dimwitted has-been. But on issues relating to my daughter, I am the all-knowing, merciless god of your universe. If I ask you where you are going and with whom, you have one chance to tell me the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I have a shotgun, a shovel, and five acres behind the house. Do not trifle with me.
Rule Ten:

Be afraid. Be very afraid. It takes very little for me to mistake the sound of your car in the driveway for a chopper coming in over a rice paddy near Hanoi. When my Agent Orange starts acting up, the voices in my head frequently tell me to clean the guns as I wait for you to bring my daughter home. As soon as you pull into the driveway you should exit the car with both hands in plain sight. Speak the perimeter password, announce in a clear voice that you have brought my daughter home safely and early, then return to your car - there is no need for you to come inside. The camouflaged face at the window is mine.
