4 Months and 3 days to go....

Good morning/afternoon/evening to everyone :)
I hope you had a lovely weekend with your family and friends. I had to take care of my fiance, as he cought a flu bug this weekend. Boo... but I talked to him on the phone yesterday and he told me he felt much better! Yay for that. But, I caught a bug too *sob sob* I felt sick on Sunday night while I was working for an Emeritus Professor and when I got home I took Nyquil right away. Oh... I hate feeling sick.

But... I'm all good now! :) Just have a runny nose and a bit of a stuffy nose, that is all... I hope I'll be good by this weekend :) The weather's forecast for the week is not as good as last week's. This week is going to be cold and a chance of snow on Friday night towards Saturday. Oh bummer.... I live in the midwest and I should not be surprised by this change of weather.

Oh, I have to tell you this! I went to a dogs' show last weekend and it was my first time going! I fell in love!!!!
I, myself, love dogs so much and this is an awesome experience that I got to go! There were so many dogs and I learned a different perspectives to all dog lovers out there. People really go far and beyond for their dogs and like I said, it's a dog show.... they prioritize their dogs like their own children. It's so amazing!

So cute right??? I couldn't help myself but "aawwwww... " everytime I encounter one! They're so adorable and their owners were nice enough to let me take their pictures :)
Luckily, last weekend was the last Dog Show that was held in my area! Woohoo for that!!

Anyway, I hope everyone is having a great week. Stay warm... and stay away from the cold bugs.

Hello Hello... It is that Love Day called the Valentine's Day! *loves*

For those who are celebrating, Happy Valentine's Day :) and for those who are still single, we can still celebrate Valentine's in our own way :) MORE FUN I think!
Is anyone doing something special? As for me, since fiance lives in a different city, I get to enjoy it all by myself, with my sister and roommate. No special dinner... nothing like that.
But I guess, I'm planning on making a spaghetti bolognese for tonight's dinner and lunch tomorrow. Yum Yum...

I would like to share what we've been doing all weekend. We went to watch our niece, Neva, did her figure skating competition and OMG.. she won both of the competitions!
All the family is so proud of her and considering she's the youngest among the other contestants! Way to go little Neva! She gives me the courage to work harder... it's not going to be easy, but with hard work anything is possible :) Cheezy I know, but I thought life needs a bit of cheeziness to take off the seriousness *wink*
Here's a picture of Neva when she did her magic on ice :) So beautiful and can you see how tiny she is?

Our weekend trip for Neva's competition would not be complete with the food that filled our tummies along the way~ First night we got there, we stopped at a Korean Restaurant, which is located inside a mall. Surprisingly, it was so delicious! Not bad for a dinner that cost around $12-$13 because you got unlimited starters (they were sooo yummy!) and also a delicious main entrĂ©e. Fiance always orders the best thing in a restaurant. In this case, he ordered Kimchi Fried Rice! *grin face* sooo good!!!
The next day, we went to eat lunch before the game at Olive Garden. Don't laugh but it was my second time to officially eat there~ I wish I could have gone more often... I ordered the never ending salad, soup and breadstick and I was so happy with it! It was so worth it! Here's the soup that ordered, which I can't recall the name but I know it was a sausage and potato soup :) yum yum...

To celebrate Neva's 1st win, we all went to Ruby's Tuesday for dinner. But since I was still so full, I split my dinner with my sister. A smart way to save money yet we both enjoyed our dinner very much *wink*
The second day of competition started at 8 a.m. So tired... but was so worth it because Neva did so well and won her 2nd competition. This results to a National Competition! Not sure when the date will be but I can't congratulate Neva and family enough for all the hard work they've put in! I hope they'll never stop working hard to prepare for National :) But anyway, back to our food topic. We went for brunch and to celebrate Neva's winning at the Texas Roadhouse. It's a steakhouse and I love the atmosphere!
The food was good and very friendly servers. They provide us while we were waiting for our table and food with peanuts (never ending) and probably the most delicious break I've ever eaten!!!
Here's me and fiance being silly :)

We had so much fun last weekend but the reality has creeped in.. boo...
Midterm is coming... oh no!!! Okay... I gotta go back to study and I hope everyone is having a good day!
Have a good week... weather is getting nicer over here. At least there's something to be cheerful about ;)

More Less...

Hello everybody! I hope you all had a lovely weekend and is having a good week so far.
This morning I woke up with a terrible pain on my neck... probably because I slept in the wrong position or something. But aarrgghhh... it's killing me. I hate not being able to move around as freely as I can. But BAAHHH... (enough with the moaning -__-;)

I have something to look forward this week. My fiance's niece is going to compete for figure skating this weekend!! Therefore, we're going to support her. I hope that she'll do well during the competition and she'll compete with 16 others. Did I mention that she's only 5 years old? :)
She's super talented!

Oh... I've been wearing these colored contacts that I got from Indonesia. They're grey color and I flippin' love them! They don't make my eyes look weird or anything, because I found that with other colored contact lenses that I've tried on. So here's a look :)

OK, I think that's everything. I hope you have a great week and only 3 more days (including today) till' Friday! *good feeling* Stay warm... the temperature this week has been so cold! one digit temperature >__<

It's February Already!

Happy Wednesday! Wow... we've just had our first snow storm/blizzard yesterday for this year's winter. Classes were cancelled and the roads were pretty much covered with mountains of snow. It was crazy!
On the good side though, I didn't have to ride the bus to my campus as it was closed and classes were cancelled! YESSS!!! More time to do my school stuff and all the other things I have in mind *laughter*.

Today, however, seems to be a lot better than yesterday. At least it stops snowing... but OMG... it is so freakin' cold!! As I'm writing this blog inside my warm apartment and looking at the window, the sun is shining. Pffttt... The sun can be very deceiving, it looks like today is a warmer day but we all just got punk'd! It is currently 8F outside... BBRRRRR.... Remind me again why I'm here?

Enough bragging about how cold the weather is, on the brighter side... It is now 141 days left till our wedding!*grin* So many things to do...
Because school got cancelled yesterday, I had a chance to sort out fiance's and my pictures that I'll put together for our slideshow. I have crazy ideas on my head right now on how I'm going to do our slideshow... I really hope I can make it work! And I know it'll look awesome! I just need to slowly start on it.
We've picked a song already for the slideshow, we thought it'll be perfect!

As for songs that will accompany us during the big day, we've also found the perfect one we'll use for the reception! We're so very excited for it, thanks to fiance's sister who found this song for us!
I can't say anything yet about the songs but all I can say, it's a beautiful song that we're so honored to be using it. The song is made for the very talented person in this world, I'd say :)
I'll tell you more about it... after the wedding. So you guys have to be patient :D

I'd like to show you the aftermath of the blizzard we had all yesterday.

Outside my apartment

See all those snow... 

I hope tomorrow will be a little bit warmer than today for the Chinese New Year! Happy Chinese New Year to all of you, who celebrate it :)
