this is pretty late, but i wanted to show the fashion of this year’s golden globes, with my personal favorites for best dressed to worst. so let’s go to my favorite picks: my two favorite is reese witherspoon in nina ricci and cameron diaz in valentino. i know that many of the critics didn’t fancy cameron’s pick, but i loved its flirty shapes, esp. the one shoulder frill. I also loved how she called out the white by wearing bright red lipstick and dramatic black hair…that looks beautiful with her pale blue eyes…the dramatic contrast just accentuates her eyes more, plus, her coif matches the black bow on her dress. i thought it was great. it’s ironic how the two women who had recent break ups were the ones that looked the best that night. let’s get to my worst dressed. oh dear lord were they bad! selma and jennifer looked extremely busty, and somewhat out of the fashion trend of 2000. selma looks as if someone put blankets together and jennifer looks like a prom date gone wrong. i mean look at that skirt…it looks like a trash bag…admit it. but i’ve saved the worst three women […]
so i promised i’d blog about emma. she’s 18months old now, and finished her vaccinations this week. everyone in the doctor’s office always comment on how big she’s gotten, and although on the skinny side, she’s developing well and healthy. her favorite word to say is probably “uh-oh” which is not technically a word, but a phrase she uses often because she’s an uh-oh kind of girl. she’ll drop things to say uh-oh, drop things on top of dropped things for double uh-oh, and basically poop to say uh-oh…i’m exaggerating, but she does indeed love that phrase. ok, so my girl is into technology; she knows that our computer has her favorite shows, so when one of her recorded shows finish playing, she says “uh-oh” and waits a while for us to change the show, but sometimes, we can be out of the room, or moving at a slug’s pace so, she takes the remote and does it herself. Yes, she knows how to work a remote, how to turn the tv on, play her personal dvd player, AND operate my mom’s Roomba. For Christmas, we got my mom a roomba and well, emma’s curiosity led her to push a […]
please remind me to take Emma to a world debating competition in 15 years. thank you.

we’re finally back home from a very long week of holidays and events. it’s good to be home as it is sad to leave sj. when we got home last night, we decided to just rest after all the packing and unpacking, and just minutes ago, i’ve finished unpacking and cleaning our place so i could feel sane and not so tense. emma was sweet enough to occupy herself while i went from room to room putting things away. it’s tough keeping your home clean, esp. if you have kids (husbands included). but one thing i learned prelabor is that i can’t be supermom, so sometimes i need to stop trying too hard to get everything done at once. new year’s eve was nice. after church, we had youth bible study and learned more about Paul and his encrouagement to Timothy. it’s also proudly noted that the eagles won their division, won their sunday game against the falcons, and will be in the playoffs. they’re playing the giants this week, so i’m a bit hesitant to say we’ll win, but seeing as to what they’ve accomplished with Garcia, there’s a possibility to push forward. in the evening, we ended up […]
just recently, zem’s learned how to say lolo. before, it used to be lola, every time she’d talk on the phone. but now, she says, “woo woo” in a very endearing tone, as if she’s lonely for his company. when we were at my parents’ house, she’d go to the foyer and shout “woo woo,” hoping that my dad can hear her from upstairs and come down to play with her.
it’s been a lot of eating…each year the number of presents gets bigger…but for some reason, upon being asked what one wants for christmas, the answer’s always, “don’t spend too much…” as you get older, it does feel better to give than to receive. this christmas, i was waiting for my family to open their gifts instead of wanting to open mine. after church and A*Bay, our family waited for our late lobster dinner. we have this weird tradition now of ordering live lobsters for our christmas dinner (thanks to my brother)…we also have this tradition of eating around 9pm-10pm so we can just enjoy company until 12am, which is when we open gifts. we’re so strict about it too…we can never open gifts before midnight…it might be just a sign of relentless tradition or a desperate cling to innocence and childhood…nevertheless, we opened gifts at midnight. even the babies were awake with us, playing with their presents while the fire played with the christmas music. this was also samsam’s first christmas, and emma’s first christmas with samsam….man, i love watching them interact with each other…as the months progress, they’re more aware of each other’s budding potential for friendship and […]
