how sure?

As sure as the weather.

read all about it.

I wanna sing, I wanna shout...
I wanna scream till the words dry out.
So put it in all the papers, I'm not afraid.
They can read all about it...they can read all about it.

weekend wrap up.

 Michael & Jamie's Wedding Cake Topper
How cute is that???
 The husband actually volunteered 
to take some photo-booth pictures.
Get this, he was sober too!!!
Sadly, the pictures came out blurry.
 Spent a good amount of time re-reading LOTR!!
Who's excited about The Hobbit hitting theaters?
Hey, don't judge me!!!
 The husband and Modern Welfare 3 were inseparable this break.
I spent an awful lot of time watching him try to play this game.
We've never done Black Friday shopping before.
So...we decided to start a new tradition for our first year of marriage.
No amount of Red Bull or coffee could get us to attempt that mess again.

Hope everyone had a fabulous break and a great Thanksgiving!!
Time well spent with family and friends are pretty much priceless these days.

Maybe you will see it for what it is...

the broken ones.

The husband is a big fan of hers. 
She was super sweet on the The Voice last season 
and it doesn't hurt that she's super talented.
Hope her the best in all her endeavors!!

a day of thanks.

For those that reside in the States,
many of us are currently recovering from our Thanksgiving feast.
 However, for me, today is not just another excuse to pig out.
On this day, I'm reminded that I'm thankful for much and
grateful for plenty.....especially my friends and family!
I hope everyone had a chance to show their appreciation
for all the great things in their lives.
Have a great rest of the week!

i'll stand by you.

One of my favorite songs.

The light. You can finally see it? 
Good, do not look anywhere but there.
Now walk towards it! Yes, keep going.
And when you finally get there...
Maybe you can actually gain some sense back.


Geez. Why so good?

be aware.

Let your intuition guide you.
It's rarely ever wrong.

weekend wrap up!!!

Van came into town this weekend.
We shopped, we drank, we ate, we ate, we ate, we ate some more
and then of course we treated ourselves to a mani and pedi!!
I've been getting emails about how my fashion blog has not been updated.
So guess who got conned into taking a few pics!!!That would be Van!! 
Also, Rosie got roped into being the photographer 
and she spent the majority of the weekend driving us around!!
It's nice to have decent friends. I kid, I kid, they're great!!!!!
Cupcake anyone????????
Like I said.....we ate. We ate a whole lot.

One of the quirks of being a teacher is that
I have a whole week off for Thanksgiving break!!
Too bad everyone and their mama is still at work.
I guess this would be the perfect opportunity to catch up!
To the husbands dismay,  I'm going to try my hand at cooking again!!
Wish me luck folks!!!!!!!

in your arms.

She makes me smile.

no denying.

It's there for all to see.
Believe it.  Or not.


It absolutely drives me nutty when people insist on saying...
"You can't have the cake and eat it too!!!"
Why, tell me, would you even want the cake 
if you can't eat the damn thing????


He's gone a long way.
Good for him.

Don't be fooled by all the pretties....


Just when you least expect it....
You'll find exactly what you wished for.

hunger games.

It's been almost three years since I've first read The Hunger Games.
It's a book that I encourage my students to read every year.
The story is so raw and it just resonates with you long after you're done.
Let's cross our fingers that the movie does the book justice. I can't wait.

it will rain.

I kinda, sorta already love this song but 
I think the video actually made it sound even better.
I really do need to see him live in concert again.

are you done?

It's better to offer no excuses than a bad one.
-George Washington


I finally watched Beauty and the Beast.
How come no one bothered to inform me that 
the Beast presented Belle with a library?
A library. He freaking built her a LIBRARY!!
That has to be the best present EVER!!
Sadly, I am jealous of a cartoon.
Damn that BELLE!!!
My books need a home too!!!

back home.

i like.

weekend wrap-up!!

 Happy Birthday Mom!!
 We'll drink up for you!!
Big money...big money..big money!!!
Sadly, the casino likes to keep its money!!
 Snowboarding anyone!!???
Someone ought to tell the husband that he's still in Texas!
Went home to celebrate mom's birthday.
I now know why my mom loves Chewy so much!
He's such a brown-noser!
Happy Birthday to Thanh!!!
His last birthday as a single man!!
Van and him are gearing up for their big day!!

Despite all the activities we had scheduled,
this weekend was surprisingly low key and relaxing.
I even had time to finish up grading papers!
Another week and I'm off for Thanksgiving break!!
Can't wait!!!

And in the one really wins.


Watch and learn buddy.
Watch and learn.

for real?

Mrs. Do, what do they do at a baby shower?
Do they just pass the baby around and give the baby showers?
Wouldn't the baby get tired and cold?
- a very misinformed student

rumor has it/someone like you.

Love this mash up!


Thanks for keeping it real mom!!
Happy Birthday!!!
Everyone enjoy your weekend!!

to read.

Sometimes I just like to know what happens next...

How you're supposed to feel and how you truly feel....
Does not always align, does it?

kiss the rain.

I've always favored the sounds of the violin over that of a piano
but listening to Yiruma play the piano makes me 
seriously doubt my choice in instruments.
If you've never heard him play...give him a chance.
He simply just is.

too soon.

And in a blink of an eye....time passes.

I don't have to follow along or agree...
That's the great thing about having opinions.

people help the people.

I find it so hard to believe that she's only 15.
While others may find her songs far too slow, 
I love how unaffected and timeless her music is.

wasted. have so many.
It's a pity it's just sitting there.

let's trade places.

Be patient,
says the one who does not have to wait.

the one that got away.

"The past is like a handful of dust.
It filters through your fingers, little by little."

thanks for the reminder.

OMG...I never want to get past the age of 30.
That's soOooo OLD!!!!!!
Isn't that when you start wearing diapers again???
Btw Ms. Do, how old are you?
-jessica gomez 14

running scared.

Keep're doing a great job...
After awhile no one's gonna even bother to look anymore.

your song.

Bite your tongue yo.

Let's not rain on their parade.
If two people are seemingly happy,
just leave them alone.
Trust me, it's a whole lot easier that way.

good days ahead.

Because I said it will be.


This song just kinda grows on you.
It's a great collaboration.
I am almost always impressed with Tablo.
His music is so catchy and his lyrics so real.
But what else can you expect from a Stanford graduate?
