Pretending to be strong....
Sooner or later, it's going to catch up.

Overthinking can kill your happiness, buddy.


I've never quite understood the appeal of the "bad boy."
Exciting. Dangerous. Mysterious. Thrilling. Intoxicating.
Adjectives....that I am indifferent towards.
Sounds overwhelming, to tell you the truth...and a lot of work.  
They're great in books, movies and dramas...
But real life....not so much, I don't think.
Perhaps I know my capabilities...
And I'm not capable of changing that "bad boy."
Or, perhaps I'm just lazy...
That and I don't enjoy the chase either...
I'd rather read a book. Does that make me dull?
Possibly...but my hearts not broken, is it?


 I feel it in my bones

be wise..

"Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, 
our most inexhaustible source of magic. 
Capable of both inflicting injury, 
and remedying it."

We must all make the choice 
between what is right and what is easy.
-Albus Dumbledore-


Man, it's a sad day for me.
I would have to bet that Manning feels much worst though.
I feel for you buddy, I do.
I should've read a book.
Or graded some papers, 
anything but watch that massacre.
I should've stayed in bed.

It's almost SPRING BREAK!!!  
Can you believe it?  Geez, how time flies.
Ha, I'm actually starting to sound like a broken record.
I know....I have been slacking, 
but due to good reasons, I promise.
Teaching has kept me busy but things are finally slowing down!
Now I just need to change gears and

hello, again.

it's time.

Make it count.

weekend(s) wrap-up??

Just a few more weeks...
Can't wait to meet Baby Brady!!!
 Yes, that's right...
MULAN in the house!!
The brother in law bought us matching couple socks.
Scottie..of all people. Believe it. 
 The husband packed lunch.
 Yes, that is John. Yes, he is smiling.
And yes, he was most definitely drunk.
Which would explain why the husband
was also taking pictures and smiling.
Thanksgiving in Rockport, Texas.
Can't beat that, huh?
Thanksgiving dinner....the Rockport way.
 Welcome Lincoln. 
Cutest. Nephew. Ever. 
Stubbled upon my high school frames.
See? I was way cool...even in 95.

Hi. Can you believe it's DECEMBER already? 
How was everyone's Halloween? 
Thanksgiving? Black Friday? Cyber Monday??  
Ha, did I miss anything else?

It's been quite some time since I've last posted.
My sincere apologies.
So many things have happened the last two months,
I'm afraid I'm still trying to adjust to all the changes.

Regardless, I wanted to thank you for all the thoughtful 
emails and Thanksgiving wishes in my inbox.
I hope all is well and stays well for everyone.
Take care and stay warm during this winter season.


Waiting to be sick of this song...
Afraid it's not happening anytime soon.

I'm like that.
Either I forget right away...
Or I never forget.

Hello Strangers!! It's been awhile, hasn't it?
How is everyone doing? All is well, I hope.
It's been a hectic school year. Lot's of changes.
After twelve years of teaching, I'm finally pooped ;)
I turned a year older this September so 
I'm gonna go ahead and totally blame it on age.
If I could, I would stay in and read all day...everyday.
Big dreams, I have :) 
You guys enjoy the rest of October!!
See you soon!

i don't need a man.

I know, I know....but it's super catchy!!

He who does not understand your silence....
Will probably not understand your words.
-Elbert Hubbard


Can one be home and still feel homesick?
 For if I must admit, I miss my younger sister.... 
It doesn't feel much like home without her.
Teanuh's birthday recently passed and I hate that 
 I was only able celebrate it with a text message.
It's sad, is it not..when our individual lives
 get too busy for even a quick telephone call?
I hope all is well with you, Teanuh.
You may be a year older but you will always be
 my hard-headed, soft-hearted, grouchy younger sister.
Don't let me catch anyone making you cry.
Happy Birthday Punk.

BFF ;)

Happy Birthday Chingu!
After years of being friends, I've finally decided that
you're not such a bad investment afterall.
It's been a long time coming but
I guess I can finally be seen in public with you!
I hate to be accused of quoting a K-Drama..
but im'ma do it anyway....
 I'm sure "glad you were born."

here with you.

hey, it's catchy.
ok, you got me.
 he was cute.

Kill them with success,
and bury them with a smile.

weekend(s) wrap-ups

 Baby Alex spent some time with the cool Memedo!
I have to admit, that was easiest babysitting gig ever!!!
Nalinh's Restaurant.
Turns out...they serve a mean papaya salad.
 Had a blast at the Linkin Park Concert.
Chester. That. Is. All.
 Happy Early Birthday, Phi!!!
 The boys drinking to Vinh & Jeannee's big day.
 What's a wedding without the photobooth???
 The hair's disheveled, the smile's present, and the shirt's untucked...
Looks like fun Tommy was out to play.
 Lanna...pretty in red =)
The husband trying to be handy. EPIC FAIL.
The guy took three hours to fix his phone.
Again, thanks for all the concerned emails and text messages.
Thankfully, I am still alive =) Just very busy.
When I first started this blog,
I didn't realize how many great people
I would get to know and eventually meet !!!!
Thank you all for keeping my days interesting.
Have a great week.
