THANKSGIVING-2015-1.jpg

  Happy Thanksgiving week. I’m excited to spend time with family and friends as we celebrate Thanksgiving day on Thursday. I’m lucky to have majority of my family and friends nearby. We get to celebrate holidays together, which makes it more special. Hubby and I used to drive all over town to celebrate Thanksgiving at […]

Last week’s family meals had lot of greens. However, it was just my toddler and I at the table for most of the days,  as the hubby was travelling at the end of the week. We hosted my mom and brothers this weekend. We had plans to go the beach and had our picnic food […]

 This weekend, Chris and I, visited my parents house to watch boxing. Our family is a big boxing fan and we especially are a big fan of Manny Pacquiao. When we arrived, everyone was still watching the NBA finals, so my niece and I had plenty of time to goofed around. I found her wearing […]

Some fun highlights from this week. We had our usual Sunday evening at Disneyland this past weekend. I got my highest score on Buzz Lightyear ride! Chris sent me flowers at work for my birthday. The lilies finally bloomed and they are so beautiful. Definitely the bright spot in my office. They remind me of […]

Our Vegas fun continues….. I was the last one to arrive in Las Vegas to meet up with the rest of the family. After I arrived at the airport, the husband whisked me away and we dropped off my luggage in our hotel room. Next thing in order was brunch at Grand Luxe Cafe at […]

I’ve learned to stream line my morning routine and I feel like I’m back to my old self and my active lifestyle. I’ve consistently made it to the gym first thing in the morning the last few weeks. Woohoo! One of the things that I’ve done to stay sane in the morning is to do […]

What I Ate – Craving Carbs

It has been that kind of week where I am just craving carbs and can’t get enough of it. When I do eat a lot of carbs, I make sure that I eat healthier carbs by choosing whole wheat or whole grains when I can. For breakfast, I made pancakes using Kodiak Pancake mix. Eating […]

The sun has decided to come out from hiding. We’ve had a rainy week here in SoCal, but today was great. Sunny and clear. Which means, I abandoned the treadmill today and ventured outdoors to go to the park for a 4 mile run. I was excited to get out and listen to new Jillian […]

I have so many recipes bookmarked for this holiday season (mostly cookies and desserts) that I don’t think I’ll have time to bake and cook them all. I guess it’s ok to make holiday cookies in the Spring right? December is full of holiday parties and I am surrounded with indulgent desserts, delicious party food, […]

We’ve had beautiful weather around here. I am enjoying it while it lasts. Heard there’s a storm coming soon. Admiring the  last of the ripe oranges. They are sour though 😦 And enjoying the last of the beautiful plumerias. It might be the last bloom until next season. My mother-in-law gave us a few plumeria […]
