new start.

Goodbye, 2011.
I hope the new year treats me just as well.


I often feel like I want to think something
but I can't find the language that coincides with the thoughts,
so it remains felt, not thought.
-Peter Cameron

settle down.

very quirky.

I like being alone, not all the time of course.
But I do like moments saved especially for me.
Time to read. Time to think. Time to truly see. 
Don't get me wrong, I love being married
but I'm also not afraid to be alone....with just me.


Speaking louder does not guarantee that 
I will understand you any better.
Let's make some sense and try again please.

it will rain.

currently on repeat.

the irony.

As soon as you stop wanting 
something, you'll get it.
-Andy Warhol


No, not at all. You're not rude, not one bit.
I mean her hair was a hot mess and you 
were right about his fashion sense! It was horrid.
AND I wouldn't be caught dead with that other girl either,
I mean she wore the same dress twice!!!
Geez, you can't help it if you're just being honest.
I don't understand why you don't have more friends.
What? I sound like I'm being sarcastic? 
NO, never. Not with you.

safe & sound.

I heard this song is going to be on The Hunger Games soundtrack.
I find the lyrics haunting and very fitting to the story.
March can't come soon enough.

broken record.

Changed your mind again, did ya?
Last time I checked, you only had one mind.
Man up and figure it out.

weekend wrap-up

The husband did not like waking up early on his Christmas break!!!
He also didn't want his photos taken either...Opps  =)
Look what I got for Christmas....
 My very own copy of City Hunter!!!
Now I can watch it over and over and over...
 Look Sophie the MONSTER!!!
It's a miracle!!! She's actually being super pleasant.
The secret to taming a monster? Play-Doh!
 I finally got back the decent copy of Emma beans and I!!
It's a good thing too because she was way too busy mixing 
the Play-Doh to take pics with Auntie Meme this week!!
So, Santa didn't give me Dirk this year.
But Daniel gave me tickets to go watch him play,
I guess that's as good as it gets. Thanks Daniel!!

I can't believe Christmas has come and gone!!
Wow, that was just way too fast!!
In another week we'll be bringing in the New Year!!
Does everyone have their resolutions ready???

closing time.

The husband has been humming this song all weekend long.
Surprisingly...I can still tolerate it.

If we could turn back,
we'd probably never end up where we started.

the chill of winter time

I am thankful for all that is in my life,
the good along with the bad.
Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas!

don't kick the chair.

"Tell me have you ever woken up,
just to wish you could close your eyes."

just be.

Don't worry about what people think,
they don't do it very often.


My good friend Duyen mentioned that she loved recieving Christmas cards.
Checking the mailbox for cards is something she easily gets excited about.
In such a materialistic time and age, I find that thought kind of comforting.
While it's extremely easy to purchase a gift, 
it takes quite a bit of time and sincerity to pen one's thoughts on to paper.
So it's great to know that there are a select few who truly value the gift of words.
When's the last time you actually read a card?

the one that got away.

i dig.

Experience is a brutal teacher,
but you learn.
-C.S. Lewis

weekend wrap-up.'s Emma beans!!
And she's ready for dress rehearsal!!
 Happy 25th Birthday Huong.
You owe us some birthday shots since
we were too busy to celebrate properly!
It's the flower-girl and the ring bearer!!
How cute are they????
 Here comes the bride...all dressed in white...
Pictures don't really do her justice!!
 The husband and the "hot" bartender!!
Thanks Andrea for helping out with the drinks =)
 Bridesmaid duties done.
Time to party!!
Happy Anniversary punk!!!
 My two favorite people...
Looking a little too sober!!!
 The Nguyen ladies!!!
 Oh OOoooo.
Is that the groom hugging a trashcan?
And look who showed up to the after party!!
Glad you could make it Mai!!

Congrats to the pretty couple!! I think I had a bit too much fun!
I do believe that's the last wedding we have to attend for awhile.
Yes!!! My pocket books can finally rest!  Wait a minute...
I lied, I haven't done any Christmas shopping yet.
Yay....Just a few more days!!!


my favorite from their new album.

There are so many things I need to do.
Yet, I find myself without motivation.
My laziness is in overdrive.


makes me smile.

la isla bonita.

I'm partial to this song. 
It takes me back to high-school. 
Good times, good times they were.
It helps that Alizee's awfully easy on the eyes.

Let me be, was all I wanted.
Be what I am, no matter how I am.
-Henry Miller

crash your party.

   "All eyes on you, so let's toast to you,
you've got so much to prove."


books, old or new, i love them all.

it makes me happy.

My memory of you is better than you.
-Lao Tzu


hauntingly beautiful...
tablo's lyrics and lee sora's voice.

weekend wrap up.

Evelyn's 1st Birthday Party!!!
Looks like someone had a bit too much cake.
 Walking balloon animals...
You can't tell me you're not fascinated.
 Khoa's Annual Christmas Party..
Desserts galore.....
 Oh. No. Karaoke.
 We're lifting guests???
Did we run out of Christmas games??
Got mail...books actually.
A nice surprise from the husband.
He should go away more often.
Last minute preparations for
 Van & Thanh's big day!!
This bridesmaid is good to go!!

Just another week left till Christmas break!!
Well, for me at least.  
Sadly, I have not done any Christmas shopping.
This break is very much needed!
I've already started the countdown.
Have a great Monday everyone =)

There's much I'm willing to compromise...
Pride is not one of them.


"The stakes are high, 
the water's rough, but this love is ours."

careful now.

What goes up, must come down.

say what?

Snowboarding. 12 pack of Coke.
How is that an even trade??

a long time.

Looks like we've made it buddy...
Here's to a decade!!!


"She is a pyramid but with him she's just a grain of sand.
This love's too strong like mice and men
Squeezing out the life that should be laid in..."

When all is said and done,
more is always said than done.

i got you.

"We'll go on surviving....
No drama, no need for a show...
Just wanna say I got you."
