in time.

You still don't see it, I know.
But it's there.

inner you.

A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly.
You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth
and a double chin and stick-out teeth,
but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face
like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.
— Roald Dahl 

pretty face.

the perfect song for a rainy day.

rise and fall.

It's inevitable.
You couldn't stop it if you tried.

weekend wrap up.

 Joylynn turned 31 this weekend!!
And you know what they say....
When in Texas do as Texans do!!!
The lovely cowgirls....
 And here we have the 
loose interpretation of cowboys.....
 Jimmy riding the mechanical bull. 
Show them how we do.....!!!
There is something slightly odd about jamming
out to Kanye West while sporting western gear!!
The best friend!!!
PARTY FOUL!!! What a stinker!!
The husband does not do cowboy wear..says he!!!
Had to teach Saturday School after the crazy night out!!
The husband must have felt bad because  
I came back to a spotless home!!
Happy Birthday to the pretty Ta sisters!!
They're pretty darn decent cousins!!!
At 21 and 25...they're still babies =)

I've been working long hours and with crazy weekends like this.....
Well, honestly, it makes me feel kinda, sorta, old.  
Since I can't hang, I really should just call truce on these events!!
Hope everyone starts their week out well!!


i <3 bruno mars.
oh, little wayne is not too shabby either.

I'll lend you my ears....
 And promise to listen to you sincerely.
Then I'll lend my eyes.... 
So that you can actually see everything clearly.

i don't care.

found my old ipod nano.
2ne1 dominated my K-POP playlist in 09.


Someone accused me of being a crazy fan awhile back.
They said my love for the Mavericks was not only 
irrational but borderline obsessive. It never once bothered me.
I admit...after certain losses I've gone into slight stages of depression
and there were plenty of times where I've lost taste for food.
But I've never considered it a state for concern.
Until I met a particular SPURS fan. And boy was she LOONEY!!??
Sadly enough, after some time spent with her, 
I realized she was the mirror image of myself. Talk about a rude awakening.
From that moment on, I decided to tone it down a wee bit.
I promised myself not to project a poor image of a devoted Mavericks fan.
So I've blogged less about them and kept more thoughts private.
But is an exception. 
I've waited a long time to see Nowitzki get his ring.
He's always been a champion in my eyes but now the world has proof.

And then there was rain...
Giving me the perfect excuse
to curl up and be lazy.


You make it way too easy.
And you know what they say about easy...
Easy will come and easy will go.

turn me on.

my workout jam.

Of all sad words of tongue or pen,
the saddest are these, "it might have been."
-john greenleaf whittier

weekend wrap up.

 Museums and fashion!!!???
Count me in, please!
 I know John Paul Gaultier is known for dressing
the likes of Madonna and Lady Gaga but was I in for a surprise.
Let's just say this collection was the tamest of them all.
Everything else was just very different.
 Oakcliff has an undeserved reputation for being very ghetto.
It's not nearly as bad as everyone perceives it to be.
Hidden in the heart of Oakcliff,
 is a very quaint area called Bishop Arts District.
We ventured out and did a little discovering.
Cretia's Bakery!! 
Not a fan of sweets but even I was convinced to try 
a cookie or two...or maybe even three!!!
reputed to have the best Chicken & Waffles in the DFW area!
Sadly, it was not on the brunch menu.
 The infamous Oddfellows Macchiato...
it only took us an hour wait =/
 Tien & Mai came into town this weekend!
Rosie arranged for us to do a little artwork!!!
The art major took his work a little too seriously!
Someone ought to tell Tien it's just an excuse to drink.
Speaking of drinking.......
 Now this is what most of the girls were excited about.
 My final product.
Bid starts at a million. I kid, I kid.
Scottie, the brother in law, sent me a package from Korea.
And the husband seemed a little too excited about it.
 And of course.....the Asian crowd bringing in the new year!!

It's the Year of the Dragon!! 
Happy Lunar New Year everyone!!! 
It's been a hectic weekend but great nonetheless.
Friends & family came in from out of town
and we ventured out and had a good time!!!!
Hope this year brings you much good luck!!
Btw...we're not planning to have a dragon baby...

So please stop asking us =)

we could

Not bad, huh?

let's make deal.

I don't mind aging.
'Cause somewhere along the way,
I'm supposed to grow wiser, right?
I just hate everything else that comes with it.
You know....the lack of patience,
the aching bones, the low metabolism,
the quick memory loss, the easy weight gain!! kind of sucks!!!
Can't I just grow older and smarter 
without all the other mess?

dancing shoes.

love her dress. 
the song is not bad either.

You can avoid a lot of things.
Sadly, the truth is not one of them.
It is what it is.

don't hate.

You're a fool to think things won't change.

eye to eye.

You've arrived at a conclusion, and with me, you now fully agree.
Glad that we're finally on the same page.

one thing.

I'm partial to this version.....
Though they did look sharp in the official video.
Don't judge. They're all legal. 
Well..all except one.

You don't think. You hardly ever do.
And that's becoming a big problem.

weekend wrap up

 Van....look who finally decided to download 
your birthday pictures!!??
 Che Sing & Anh Hinh came into town Friday night.
They brought along ten orders of Beignets!
"I'm in's a picture of it."
The husband is in Vail for the next couple of days!
As you can see, he is enjoying himself.
Louisiana took a beating this past weekend!!
Both LSU & the Saints lost =(
I'm sure the entire state is still in mourning!!
 Hung out with a buddy this weekend.
She was feeling a little we went shopping!!
My new favorite ring!
Got an interesting present from my cousins!
I think that's a hint that my home needs decorating!

It's Martin Luther King Day! Yay! I get an extended weekend!
An extra day to lounge around and catch up on some reading and chores!
Have a great Monday folks!!!!

someone like you.

Another long week, huh buddy?
I know what will make you feel better...
Go ahead, go touch your books,
run your fingers along the titles and
