Sharing Saturday - Genesis Birthday Parties




Hi everyone! Happy Saturday... So here are the pictures from Genesis birthday parties... yes... parties... fancy... lol...
the first set of pictures is on his actually birthday... the 21... it was just the family... then the second set is when we celebrated his birthday with his parents and his friends...

and here is why this is all... seriously all the pictures I have of both parties...

first time... we turned off all the lights had him blow out the candles and opened gifts... ate food and they left home...
BTW... his dad pretended that he had a present and then gave him a cucumber... he laugh so hard...



second time... we cooked like CRAZY for his party... like crazy... and of course on the hottest week of the year! I was going semi crazy... and even though it was only 5 dishes it wasn't simple... the dishes was all very time consuming and in one big batch each time! and then we decorated the room... and then we sang, ate, opened gifts and then the BEST part... swimming in the 2 pools and hot tub!!!
we rented a hotel to have the party in... it was so FUN!!! I can't swim for the life of me but the pool was only 4.6 feet... I am a TALL 6 in above the waters... hahhah... and they even have a hot tub too... that was my second time being in a hot tub... and I LOVE IT! it really helped with my bad back... ahahhah... we stayed in there until we all became pinky yellow raisins... lol...

we don't usually go all out... well at least not yet... on birthdays... do you guys?

Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts.
-1 Chronicles 16:9



Food Friday - IPHO

But Pho was my mom's "lazy" food for a while... and I am just over pho... hahah... but my brother in law LOVES pho... so we went to ipho... surely didn't order pho... here are some of the things that my sisters + brother in law and I ordered...

Mani Monday - Fruit Fimos




Hi Hi! How is the end of your summer going?
I am finally done with moving... well was done like 2 weeks ago but pretty busy due to Genesis's birthday and mines... and CLEANING! and putting everything in it's right place... ugh! moving sucks! later I'll show some of the like and dislikes of my new place... but anyways...

now that I am jobless again I have decided, because of much free time... CLEAN like crazy... and do nails like CRAZY! SERIOUSLY! I just spent almost $60 at Sally's the other day... this is for Sunday but... I have been watching youngnails on youtube like crazy... and was very "influenced" to try out some pretty awesome tricks... lol... needless to say that watching someone do something so easy isn't easy to do yourself... lol... but here is nothing... I did my sister's nails...

here is acrylic white tips with tons of fimo fruits... it took a really LONG time... but it was really fun to learn and try all of these... it doesn't look good... I admit it... we were just experimenting with the fimos... we have TONS! my sister with fimo crazy in Chinatown... another post later...

as for rhinestones... I am still experimenting with it... I love how it sort of "stays" on better with a UV topcoat BUT the effect is different with a topcoat... and I feel like its a waste to have rhinestones on your nails for only a short amount of time... (because they are so pricey!)

also... credit to my sister Bla... I misplaced my camera during this time so I took the picture from her facebook...


Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD.

First day of Aug

Hey friends...
On the first day of August... After all the packing... Not even close to being done... And working at the same time... AHHHHHHH.... I can pull my hair out... Hahaha... Lol... But after all of that packing drama... 

It's really late and we decided to watch Jurassic Park... All of the girls are scared and this little man is just chillin... Not scared or anything... He is.. In awe... (LOVES dinos), laughing (I guess it more funny than scary)... And even warning us ("there  is a dinosuar there too")... Lol... He is just too silly...

So have you guys ever seen a animal thriller with kids before?


Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.

Wacky Wednesdays – 28 From Chicago




hi friends! So what have you guys been up to?... I can't believe that half of the year is gone!
I was in the Chicago area during Independence week because there was a conference in that area... very well worth the trip! although we didn't go to a lot of places we had tons of fun!
This is the day that we left for the conference...
We went to church... came home... took a nap and then we went to a Vietnamese restaurant... ordered all the usual... walnut shrimp, vermicelli salad, egg rolls, sweet fried chicken, curry and pho...



After the restaurant we headed for the park... to drop off my brother in law... he is a football coach and it was their last practice with him before they play. After we dropped off my brother in law at the park we went to run some last minute errands.
And then after the park we finally headed off to the conference... we reached the conference hotel at about 3 in the morning... whew! And OMG! Tolls... drive me crazy!!! Word to the wise... if you are in the Chicago area... don’t exit unless EMERGENCY!

Then he said to them, “So give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.”
-Matthew 22:21

Food Friday - Tuna Bok Choy




hey my friends! how are yall today? What did you guys eat for breakfast... how about lunch... bout' dinner... here is what I ate for “lunch” while still at work... top... a very DRY but yummy tuna salad... left... steamed white rice... middle & right... stir-fried bok choy and pork... but in different compartments... just to fancy it up a bit... hahaha... then we have my all time favorite... FRUIT PUNCH!
I don’t usually eat like this... I always have something to drink...whether its water, fruit punch, aloe vera juice or coffee... and then my I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT staple rice... and then whatever we have at home... leftover beef and veggies stir-fry from last night or pizza from lunch or fresh fried chicken... BUT it’s not limited to that... sometimes... although not a lot of the times, I just walk to the dollar store to buy my “lunch”...
So my question for you guys is... looking at how dry my tuna salad is... how do you guys make yours “creamy” so to say... without too much mayo... mines taste pretty good... but after a couple of hours it looks like this... then it’s just kinda oily... what am I doing wrong?


Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them. Then he gave them to the disciples to distribute to the people.

Food Friday Sushi




Hi friends... how's it going today... do you like buffets? I love buffets... who doesn't... you're lying if you say you don't... but a couple weeks ago my sisters and I went to a buffet close to church for lunch... and boy... we had fun... we also ate like there was no tomorrow...

I usually eat "food" before I go onto the sushi... how about ya'll? do you guys eat "food" first or sushi? but it was my first time there and the sushi selection was almost as big as the buffet area... so for some reason (I was impressed) I went onto the sushi first... and OMG... it was de-lish... I ate like 3 plates of sushi and didn't eat the "food" at all... which when I think about it now, was so ridiculous... but at the time I didn't care at all because I couldn't stop...

but here it is... you guys are maybe thinking "that's it?" but that's what I thought too... yet I didn't have any self control... hahaha... also this isn't all the sushi that they offered... they

I have no idea what these are called... but my favorite one was the spicy tuna roll (top left hand corner)... it was on my plate so many time... yum yum... it's making my crave it... I gotta go there again...

BY THE WAY... I HAD THIS POST "SCHEDULED" FOR APRIL... BUT IT DIDN'T POST... BUMMER! FINALLY!!!

Mani Moday - Goldie



Hi friends! Have you guys ever heard of Goldie Nail Lacquers? Before I owned it, I had never heard of it... apparently it's by Bath & Body Works... I haven't seen any since... (bought it at Marshalls in a pack of 8) and I always go to Bath & Body Works and haven't seen it before... but whatever the case... I really hope to get my hands on some more... there isn't a name (or I couldn't find it) so I couldn't tell you what the name is... but this one is my favorite one... not to mention the packaging... omg so cute! it looks like a tulip... and it has a bow in the middle... adorable... what do you guys think?

UPDATE...

These are discontinued... darn it!
