After being together for almost 9 years and after being engaged for about 5 of them, we finally tied the knot! We decided to get hitched on Valentine's Day at the Old Orange County Courthouse with a few family members present. It went by so fast with no fuss after a day full of fusses (original dress destroyed, jitters, etc).

"Me time".

I miss making things. Whether it be something kitschy or crocheting, sewing, other crafting or actual art. I miss making actual art pieces, but at the same time it's such a drag opening those doors. It's not about my mind, but my pieces made in college were all about my emotion and having to sit and remember things that haunt me. I mean, I do remember things, but how to release that tension creatively. It's emotionally exhausting as well. 

Anyway, back to crafting... crafting is more happy. It's fun and not so serious. It's something I can creatively do with my mind and hands without wanting to crawl up in a ball in the corner like with my art. 

Really, I am still creating... I try and crochet as much as I can with my endless supply of yarn and maybe I'm just blah because there's not much end result. However, I need to stop and remember that I'm not a machine and it's for fun. I also want to draw and paint again and have a million projects I'd like to do... I just want to do so much, but I'm exhausted when I come home from work. I end up neglecting our place too... especially when I'm crafting after work. I wish I can just do it all! 

Well... I suppose I should just write tasks/projects for myself and start crossing them off... I remember how motivating it was to do that during school. (lame, I know) This weekend is a start... I'm cleaning and reorganizing the home! I'm pretty excited now... I know... lame. 

I still love watching this.

I absolutely adore them. As soon as I found out there were Korean gals singing in the U.S. in the 50's-60's... first thing I did was look for a vinyl on eBay. *Success 
And look at their hair in this performance. Adele ain't got nothin' on them!

Boy pants and moccasins.

Pants: Target, men's section ON SALE (love!) 
Shoes: Minnetonka

One thing for sure, you will always find me digging through the men's section whether I'm shopping for Vu or for me. Usually, I find more stuff for me than for him. I'm obviously a lot more flexible on what I'll wear if I'm shopping in men's. I know I'm not the only one out there. We just don't put a gender on fashion. *snap

Wednesday, January 9, 2013


I wonder how many blogs I've started and deleted... one too many, but I suppose I'm a dime a dozen out there who has a bad habit of this. Lets see if I can keep up this time.

Well first off... it's now 2013. I feel like not much happened in 2012, hopefully I can make this year much more eventful... however, I am a huge homebody... I love my bed, I love being in the comforts of my own home and Vu and I are definitely people who walk around in the house in our undies. There. I said it.

Well... actually now that I've looked back in the photos on my phone...

We visited Kathy & Jon and went to NorCal for the first time. 
 Houdini turned 5.
Lola turned 7.
Betsy turned 1. 
We went fishing in Big Bear Lake.
Saw The Naked and Famous. 

Donated two pieces of artwork to GetArt5.

Got a good amount of loot at flea markets. 

Kathy and Jon got married. 

Roasted lamb leg for the first time (guys, it was scary), tried moonshine for the first time and had most of the family over in our tiny home for the first time. (Oh and got a surprise from Kathy and Jon crashing our party!)

Okay, so I guess a decent amount of stuff happened. 

Right now, I am currently sick with a bit of the flu. Been experiencing headaches, stuffy head (feels like a bit of my vertigo when it kicks in), hurts to eat, hurts to drink, hurts to swallow, hurts to talk, I'm tired... blech. Last night I kept waking up in the middle of the night by my own snoring... WHOA. So my sister and Vu have told me I snore a bit, but THIS. WAS. LOUD. and I know it had to be because I couldn't breathe out of my nose because my mouth was open every time and drool was running down my cheek every time. (Purdy attractive, am I riii? Look out now!) Anyway... juiced the past two nights packed full of vitamins, hopefully that helps... woke up this morning still feeling terrible, but I feel a lot better now. 

Cheers to beating the flu.
And the new year.
