#TimeTravelTuesday: Girl Scouts of the Philippines


I didn’t sell girl scout cookies. I didn’t learn survival skills or go camping. I didn’t do any sort of fundraising whatsoever. Our Girl Scouts were different.  We were in the city.  There’s no way our school will sponsor sending all of us to the province just to camp. There’s no such thing as girl […]

We enrolled the girls in Vacation Bible School again this year. The theme was: “God gave us the 10 Commandments so we can live a joyful and holy life!  Trust God and follow his L.A.W. (Love At Work)!!! After a whole week, both girls had the the commandments memorized.  They looked forward to each day of […]

Homeschool Classroom Redo


For a long while, we’ve had our homeschool classroom in the formal dining room.  Our big dining table was able to accommodate all my teaching materials, both my daughters’ textbooks, and occasionally, a laptop. While it worked enough to get things done, there were a few problems to this set-up… It felt crowded.  Because the […]

#TimeTravelTuesday : Big and Little Peas


This is my cousin and me.  Believe it or not, we’re both 6 years old here!  I’m actually older by just about a month.  And whenever we were together, we were inseparable. The funny thing about us – besides the height difference – was our voices.  While I was taller, my voice was really high […]

*This is not a sponsored post. I just really liked these apps and wanted to share – oh and I’m linked up to Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop!* If you’re like me, you take pictures everyday using your phone.  As much as I’d like to use my DSLR, it’s just not as accessible as my phone, […]

#TimeTravelTuesday : 4 and 6


This is my brother and me. It was his 4th birthday.  I was 6 (and a half). I love how happy we both look here.  I think it was the balloons! Please join me in my new Time Travel Tuesday link-up! It’s sort of like throwback thursday or flashback friday, except it’s on Tuesdays and […]

It Was Fun

4th of july food

I was looking forward to going to the park to watch the fireworks just like last year. However, as my husband promptly reminded me, I didn’t really like the parking situation, drunk/obnoxious people, hike back to the car, and long traffic lines after the show. So we decided to spend the day at my parents’ […]

3 Years of Red, White, & Blue!

4th of july 2013

Mama Kat said, “Show us your red, white, and blue!” So I looked back through my folders and found these beauties. July 4th of 2011, I was pregnant with my 3rd.  We lived in a condo, so the community had a BBQ that day.  We decided to do the BBQ but skip the fireworks show […]

#TimeTravelTuesday : Lovely


This is my mom.  Isn’t she lovely? I tried to think of different words to describe her in this picture, and I think lovely sums it up so well. Do I look like her?  I can only wish. And still, she continues to be lovely in my eyes. Please join me in my new Time […]
