New Year, New You (or Me).

Happy 2013! So I guess I've decided to continue to blog but not in the same exact fashion. I originally created this blog with the intention of making it a plog/p-log and I kept up with it for the most part. What I found difficult was posting an entry a day AND making sure it included a photo of the day. Way too much work for me ;) But like I said in my previous entry, I have discovered in the last 12 months that I enjoy taking [everyday] pictures. Photography alone was a nice creative outlet and I thought that this year I could put a slight spin on it + blogging. I've been seeing these photo-a-day challenges everywhere the last few months and have decided that I will try my best to take part in it.

And so, for 2013, this little blog will no longer be updated daily (because honestly I suck at that part of it; too much work) but I can certainly try a photo-a-day and Instagram that shit :) I'm addicted to Instagram so that should fulfill my 'daily-randomness' requirement, haha. If you don't have an Instagram account (what's wrong with you?!), I plan on keeping this blog alive at least weekly, and posting my snapshots in one shot. We'll see how that works. Until then, check out my inspiration for the month of January...Fat Mum Slim.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You Very Much, Thank You!

On this last day of 2012, I can say that I, for the most part, successfully kept up this little blog of mine. Though I slacked towards the last quarter of the year, I think I did pretty well. And while I have not yet officially decided if I will keep this blog of random going in 2013 (or just start a new one) I want to thank you for coming along on my creative journey. I learned I can write, I learned I can take photos, and I learned that I enjoy sharing my creativity with others. And so as we like to sing at family parties...

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You Very Much, THANK YOU!!

Hope you all had a nice holiday season and wishing you an even better 2013!

(Long) Weekend in Review.

It's the end of the year which means I start using my vacation and personal days - shorter work weeks and longer weekends! Last week was the only week I had a full week but that's because I had 2 events to finish off. Anyway, back to my long weekend in review...

Friday evening on the way home, I spotted a festive looking 1WTC.

Saturday evening's "appetizer". I shall never get tired of Royal Crown. I'm quite the loyal former employee.

Spent my Saturday night at church, yes church, for Simbang Gabi.
It was actually quite enjoyable despite the fact I couldn't understand 1/2 of mass or what was on the 'karaoke' screen, lol.
And who ever thought I'd live to see line dancing and Filipino food served in my old school gym. Certainly not I.

No Sunday picture because I got into jammies at around 2pm and stayed that way parked on my sofa for the day and night.
But today, I finished decorating while catching up and watching the end of GG. (Nothing says 'tis the season like a little deviousness and scheming.)

Jesus Christ, Superstar!

Another chalked heart in front of Starbucks this morning. Given I live in Jersey City, I assumed that's what the JC stood for. But upon posting this to Instagram and seeing what strangers liked my photo, I realized maybe this is a sign that Jesus Christ is here to show his love. Things that make you go hmmmm, lol.

If I Were...

...were a pattern, I would be a polka dot! I feel this pattern (big or small) is so fun and whimsical but not too crazy. Apparently I like polka dots so much that I wore a blouse in this pattern yesterday and another today! Oh and my underwear has polka dots too. Haha, tmi?! I think not. I just wanted to share with you my new love of all things dots.

Inspiration: today's blouse

Bits and Pieces

I love short work weeks because it means long weekends! So here are some snapshots of my extended weekend.

Friday night Korean dinner in Fort Lee - moooooo!
Also, that bottom pic is of our neighboring table. They made a jenga of the eaten bones. Haha. Clever.

Exploring Bayonne on Saturday led to a special mailbox.

Sunday brunch leads to Sunday dessert, hehe. I'm so glad I re-discovered Milk and Cookies. (Or water in my case.)
After some friend time in the City, I came back home to get Gerald dressed :)
