thank you thursday

...for a romantic dinner for two with the lovely heather, 
a sale at madewell - that apparently i'm obsessed with,
sunday spent with mommy,
and for a successful meeting to kick off 2013.

it's been quiet

sans cable tv and internet at the house has left time for extra sleeping, cuddles, and occasionally opening a good book. who'd-a-thunk?

updates and things

i know, i know, it's been crickets on the old blog for the last week or so (eep! maybe even longer). but, work has been crazy busy, my extra curricular engagements outside of work have been equally as nuts, and for a week or so it felt like my whole little world was falling to pieces.

the good news little world did not fall apart - even though there were moments when i was absolutely convinced otherwise. so lately i've been spending most of my time with friends, eating an insane amount of burgers, writing more emails in one day than most people should write in one week, and cuddling up on the couch on cold, rainy evenings.

i can't believe how quickly the first few weeks of 2013 has passed us by! i have high hopes for this year - and i'm not going to let that little rain cloud (that has so graciously passed) be any indication to what this new year has to offer. heck, with all those crazy filipino new year's eve traditions that i made sure to complete, i expect nothing but the best for 2013!

a wednesday wishlist

 these would make even the loneliest game of solitaire feel oh so fancy

i'm still daydreaming about a grown up apartment that actually has a place to kick up my feet

a subscription to gq (yes. i know...) because she is my girl crush, and i'd kill to look even remotely close to her.

i'm not very skilled in the makeup department, but i'd love to play with these.

[dis-uh-plin] Show IPA noun, verb, dis·ci·plined, dis·ci·plin·ing.
1. activity, exercise, or a regimen that develops or improves a skill; training: A daily stint at the typewriter is excellent discipline for a writer.

look who's figured out how to blog again!

my nephew, two of my nieces, and a tiny picture of my sisters and me in the corner

it takes me some time to get the hang of things, but i've finally figured out how to add photos to my posts again. yay! so i'm finally posting pictures from last week when my sister celebrated her 40th birthday. sadly i didn't get a photo of my mommy in her sassy blue dress - but she rocked it and looked sexy and i still can't believe she has a daughter that's 40.

my family means the world to me - and any excuse to have us all together with food and music and lots of laughs, makes me one very happy lady.

apologies for the small blog hiatus.
i've been busy with friends, and eating, and working, and all other things that have kept me away from my beloved blog.
also...i've run into some sort of issue uploading photos onto my posts.
has this happened to anyone else? 
be back soon.
