Addicted To: iPhone Games

Addicted To: iPhone Games

Technology 0

What are some of the latest iPhone games I’m addicted to at the moment?! I’m a person who likes “time management” games like Diner Dash, so my latest round of addicting iPhone games runs along the lines of something like that. I used to love playing Diner Dash and got my hands on as many time management games as I could, but they haven’t had a new ones lately and… Read more »

My Daughter Actually Likes Wearing Glasses

My Daughter Actually Likes Wearing Glasses

BG1 4

I come from a family full of vision-impaired eyes. My dad and all my siblings wear glasses, my mom is the only fortunate one in the family. My husband also wears glasses, with astigmatisms in both his eyes, sadly. So, naturally, we knew that our children would eventually have to get some eyewear sooner or later. We were hoping for later. Unfortunately, BG1’s eyes are already giving out on her,… Read more »

Can’t Stand the Silence

Can’t Stand the Silence

On My Mind 2

You know one thing I’ve realized over the years? I can’t stand the silence.

It could be my conditioning from having children, who you know are anything but quiet, and when there is silence you know they’re up to something. But yeah, being back… Read more »

My TBR Pile Challenge Update for July

My TBR Pile Challenge Update for July

Books, On My Mind 7

I’d say July was a much better month for me, reading-wise. I got through a decent amount of both review books and my own books and I FINALLY finished Graceling. Whew! It may be because I was on the tail end of that reading slump, but it took quite a bit of effort for me to get through that. Not that there’s anything wrong with the book, but I don’t… Read more »

A Decade of Love

A Decade of Love

Marriage 2

It’s been 10 short, long, trying, wonderful, unbelievable, memorable, perfect years and still everyday, I’m Falling For You… 2003 – We were so young and innocent. The first year was filled with us trying to “one up” each other in the “sweet and caring gf/bf” role. It was so fun! I remember all those little anniversaries we celebrated, thinking they were epic milestones. Oh, and that time you dressed up… Read more »

Flowers and Jewelry

Flowers and Jewelry

On My Mind 5

Every girl loves receiving flowers and jewelry, especially from a significant other, right? Well, what if I were to say, I couldn’t care less about those things? In case you didn’t know, I’ve always been a rather simple person in some aspects of life, and this area would be one of them. I’ve never cared for flowers. Sure, they’re pretty to look at. Some may even smell…decent (I don’t really care… Read more »
