We are so proud of Emma. We attended our 1st teacher/parent conference and she greeted us by saying how proud we must feel being her parents. She said Em’s meeting & exceeding standards scholastically, & is pleasant to have in her class, being quiet, observant, respectful, who listens & follows directions, gets along w/ everyone, participates, & completes her work. Her teacher was all smiles & praises. #tyL ***we’re so proud of you anak. We were worried you’d have trouble making friends, being shy, and hesitant to participate in class, but you’ve really stepped up to the challenge and asserted yourself, risking your emotions, and coming out a brave young lady. Continue on, Em. We’re always behind you to support and help you in the challenges ahead.
I am thankful for my family, who has always been there through all the changes we went through this year. I’m thankful for my wife, for being the beacon of light and keeping things together in this family. I’m thankful for my daughters for giving me so much joy. I’m thankful for my church for giving our family the much needed spiritual support. I’m thankful for my parents and siblings, though very far away but your prayers, calls and text messages make it seem that you are just around the corner I’m thankful for my in-laws for always being gracious when we come over and leave the girls. I’m thankful for my boss for giving me the all the support I need to build my team which enables me to do my job with the least resistance. I’m thankful for my coworkers for helping understand the value my team of testers bring to the table. This list can go on forever, but this is just a snippet of of the blessings that have been poured on me this year. I owe it all to you, my Lord, my Savior, my Master, my Friend, my Jesus.
So I finished my newest craft project. I was hoping to make enough for the ladies in the choir, but we’ll see if I have patience for 20 necklaces. This first time took me 45 mins. which is pretty good since it was a lot of trial and error. Hopefully, I can bust out a white/silver & black swarovski/black this Thanksgiving weekend. What do you think?pretty good for my first time, isn’t it? I’ll have more versions of it soon.
Pros: quality fabric, unique vintage look, mature versatility I was hesitant about the vintage looking peplum, but after trying it on, I felt transported to the early 20’s when women wore gloves. It didn’t look bulky at all!!! It looked very classy, unique to all the styles and clothes you see today. I love the vintage look and it’s quality does not disappoint. The wool material is heavy, with bright lining, and the color is a bright goldenrod. This skirt really pops out and makes a statement! I also love the mature versatility of this skirt. You can wear it to work, then out to a party, or a sit down get together/date. It fits true to size and runs right above the knee. Lastly, the best part about my purchase? Originally priced at $258, I found this treasure at a rack priced at the beautiful price of $29. My heart skipped a beat.
So comfortable, so put together and easily compatible with other clothes to layer with. First, I LOVE this rose color. It’s my favorite shade of dusty pink. It’s feminine with the neck ruffles, and easy to wear with the elastic waist. So anyone can wear it. I’m 5’2 and it goes a little above my knees. Also, it has POCKETS! I love a good dress with pockets. I wear it with a taupe cardi and matching booties this winter, and it looks absolutely adorable and season friendly. Yes, although it can be found in the lounge category, you can totally wear this out. The material is thick enough and cut it modest to wear outside.
Spock Hand Hoodie $40 Merry Christmas to all the Trekkies, like my brother. Should I get him one? Talk about witty. Oh, wit, you friend and foe!
I can’t wait til 3:30. I miss her smile.
