While my girlfriends are talking about all natural diet pills that work on Skype, I’m busy browsing through Pinterest for nice family shots. I’m afraid I don’t have anything to add to their conversation so until they start talking about something that I can be useful, I’ll just spend my time pinning things.
Pinterest is just amazing. I could be online there for hours and not get tired. So much inspiration, creative works and ideas that you can’t help but feel like you want to do something as beautiful. For now – I am looking at family shots hoping that we can have our own photo shoot at home. It’s been a while since we had our last decent family portrait.
Found my friend shopping for strapping tools online. When asked why, I learned that she’s moving houses. Again! It’s only five months ago since the left her last condo and now, she’s planning to move again. Luckily, it will be near our place so we’ll get to hang out more. She said she’s getting too old for condo living and would want her own porch so she can relax in the afternoon. As if she have time to relax! But anyway, I’m glad because her current condo is filled with students and yuppies that it tends to get loud at night. I just hope she’ll get to stay for at least a year at her new place this time around.
I’m still high from our Christmas party last Saturday night! I see most of these guys monthly but not so much the others who live in the province. To say that it was a great night will be an understatement. We decided to have movies as our theme which was a good call since everyone got so excited to come as their favorite characters.
It was the first time that we got to use our mobile studio outside the house too. I just had to push for that since everyone took extra effort in dressing up. Of that, you will soon see on the photos below.
My friends are just too competitive words! They were all holding out on us – secretive on what they are doing, who they were going as, etc. The party turned out really great which is always the case when you are surrounded with good friends.

These guys are just great. It was indeed, a Merry Christmas to all.
It’s been a while since I posted some photos of myself and my friends here. With so many parties + get-together that we’ve attended and will be attending, it’s just so hard to keep track of photos and stories. But this one trumps all the recent events since another friend of mine is leaving the country to pursue greener pastures. From 6 ladies, we are now down to three. I miss the first two (Lhen and Novie) who has been gone for years and will surely miss Kath, the latest to leave. Although we always keep in touch via FB/email/twitter/text/phone, there’s still no substitute to hanging out with them in person.
Anyway, just want to say Merry Christmas to all my girlfriends and thanks for everything!
I’m an expert on skipping events to blog. And this post is another evidence of that. However, I just love this photo so much that I just have to share it with you!
See these girls? These are the daughters of my online friends. We met about 5 years ago just by blog hopping and look at us now. Even our kids are now hanging out and having fun together! I just love it. We have playdates now too, not just coffee meet ups. And this coming November 27, we’ll have our annual early Christmas party to celebrate not just Christmas but our anniversary as online friends.

Have you heard of diabolo? It’s often called a chinese yo-yo, which according to videos looks fun but very challenging to use. The reason I’m asking is I wonder if this is a good alternative to the usual entertainment being offered for kiddie parties. A friend of mine doesn’t want to hire a magician, ventriloquist or acrobats anymore and would like to try something new.
I saw several videos of entertainers doing this and they are just so good! I think people are getting tired of seeing the same entertainment over and over again especially if it’s the same host. Not only that, our circle of friends are the same and we tend to hire the same set of people. It’s getting tricky looking for a new kind of show because it’s not just the kids that you need to entertain but the adults as well. Still, at the end of the day, the kids will enjoy no matter how many times they’ve seen an act if that person is really good.
I’ve been trying unsuccessfully to search for trampolines new york but couldn’t find the one that my online friend wants. We and twelve other friends are going to pool some money to give our friend’s son this special gift. Most kids his age dreams to have a trampoline inside their backyard and he is no exception. Even I would love to have one if only we have a backyard as big as theirs! Anyway, I hope we could fine one just in time for the birthday of our friend’s son. We want the item to be shipped and ready for his backyard party.
I came across an article about your own personalized challenge coin. When I followed the link, I was surprised on how great the coins look. This seems like a great idea for corporate giveaways or tokens for small organizations and clubs. Just take a look at the samples below. I would love to have one designed for me and my friends.
Women will never be satisfied with how they look no matter how perfect they seem. It’s a common trait among womenfolk and if you’ve seen Mean Girls with the scene about them commenting on the body parts that they hate, you’ll know what I mean.
Talk of liposuction is always popular especially with moms like me who just have no time to exercise yet loves food with a passion. Not that we could all afford it but we look at it as an option when worse comes to worst. Even the Husband talks about it all the time whenever he gets frustrated about his belly. Based from what I read, a liposuction procedure can take as fast as 1-2 hours only but you will need to stay overnight in a hospital.
Two of my friends asked a favor from me today. One is to help her compare healthcare job sites for her research at work while the other was to write about her new business – beanie hats. And since I’m all for fun these days, let’s start with this – Beanie Hats.
From their web site:
Are you a gal or guy looking for uniqueness. Somebody who wants to show his individuality… a cute way to express yourself by accessorizing your own person in the coolest and own unique way! Are you creative, smart and funny? Are you the life of the party, the crowd attention grabber? or you just like being you? Whatever it is, these beanies are for you. It comes in the various designs that has no limitations.
Beanie hats are hand-made beanies designed and created by my dear friend, Dolly. If you remember the Bad Badtz Maru hat that Sandy wore on one of the pictures, that one was a gift from her. She can do all sorts of designs so if you want something that is not in their web site or FB page, just email her or send her a text message for your own customized beanies. These are great as gifts or souvenirs to your kids’ parties!
