- have you ever passed down a clothing store, spotted a dress from afar, knew
that was the perfect one and bought it? i did, well, i bought my stepdaughter's
prom dress this way. she's an anime fan and i knew she wouldn't like a pastel-colored
girly dress. it was while buying my own dress for my in-laws wedding that i
came across this white halter top gown with subtle white rose print, whose
a-line skirt was set off by a black lace belt-like material. i showed it to
her when we took her shopping for her prom dress and she loved it! best of
all, she really looked great in it.
- my niece told me candidly that she wanted to stay in the US and live with
us. i guess it's her way of telling us that she really enjoyed herself. (she
even mentioned that just in case her parents divorced, she wouldn't go with
any of them, she'll ask the judge to give her guardianship/custody to us.)
and we didn't get her a gift at all or shop for her-- still she felt this way.
she said her mom never listens to her, but my husband and i both do. so i made
her promise to write to us:)
- my in-laws wedding anniversary went off without much of a hitch. father
larry was very patient with our disorganization and pretended not to notice
that my other niece who was supposed to read the responsorial psalm did not
go up to the altar to do so and proceeded with his homily. the reception was
a hit because of all the food at the buffet, the big room we had rented and
what was supposedly the program. everyone enjoyed themselves and that was the
- our graphic artist just quit-- and has been gone all week. we have been
busy trying to keep the websites up to date. i think we've succeeded so far.
my boss and our content manager is going on vacation for a week starting tomorrow--
hopefully all goes well while they're away...
- i have a new godchild. my mom's cousin, who is one of my favorite aunts--
who everyone thought was never going to get married-- just had her first daughter.
i'm so happy for her, now if only she'd send me pictures of the baby then i'd
be happier hehehe.
- my bestfriend is on her sixth month of pregnancy. her next doctor's visit
will be partly an ultrasound exam. so they will probably find out if they'll
have a daughter or a son. she said i'm a godmother (--of course! wherever i
may be when they have the dedication in December). i hope she has a healthy
and happy baby!
- we're going to vegas tomorrow! i've been here almost 2 and a half years--
and this is the first time i get to see it:) i don't really plan to gamble.
i just want to see what the hotels look like and take lots and lots of pictures!
hehehe... hopefull i get to post the pictures here.
- note to self: i still have
pictures of the nieces to pick up at the drugstore near my in-laws place...
plan to print out wedding pictures as well.
happy weekend everyone!:)
