Hello! My mom and I are having breakfast at 10:30 A.M. My dad said that we will be back to being night owls because school is out. He is funny. 🙂
It’s the first weekend of summer break. My mom and I are going to visit her best friends in Fort Worth today. One of them, Tita N (tita is Tagalog word for aunt), is holding a birthday party for three of the lady friends at her house. We are spending the night at her house also. It would be fun because I really really would like to see the cats, Bambi and Brutus. It is going to be fun!
Okay, this is all for now. My mom said we are going to Dollar General to buy some drinks to bring to the party.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
We had a blast celebrating New Year’s at our humble home. Two of my dear husband’s co-employees and their families came over to celebrate with us. They bought fireworks and we had fun shooting fireworks in a cold New Year’s Eve. The kids had fun dancing with Just Dance on Wii U. We’re supposed to do Just Sing Karaoke too, but for some reason the CD didn’t play.
It was a great New Year’s celebration. We missed a few family and friends but they were sick and my brother-in-law and his wife already had a commitment ahead of time.
Happy New Year to you! Wishing you all the best of 2017.
Happy Holidays, everyone! How are you doing? Are you starting to relax now from the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping and decorating? Whether you are hosting a party or not, it feels nice to see our homes all decked up for the Holidays.
Speaking about shopping, I tried very hard not to spend too much on home decorations this year. I had so much Christmas decorations from the past 8 years, and honestly I am not ready to get rid of them. Anyway, I would like to share some holiday cheer from my home to yours. I am not very good at home decorating but I did my best. 🙂
Now this big flower arrangement was quite expensive because it was priced $20 at a local garage sale. I bargained for half the price but the seller’s lowest price was $15. I bought it anyway because I really, really liked it. It looked taller on the round oriental vase.
Do you enjoy decorating for the Holidays? I do. As soon as the stores put their Holiday decorations on discounted sale, my family, friends and I buy whatever we can find that we like. Most of my Christmas decorations and pieces were more than 5 years old. These poinsettia placemats were given to me by my mother-in-law. Aren’t they pretty? The table runner was from Ross.
The centerpieces were bought from a on online local garage sale.
candle holder – $.50
crystal vase – $5
crystal candy dish – $3
colored balls and fillers – $2
This mesh Christmas wreath was also given by my mother-in-law two years ago. She won this at a raffle (door prize) at a Christmas Party with her group of friends.
I am so feeling festive now. I love Christmas season. How about you?
