Hi All! I know it’s been a while since I’ve blogged. I’m finding it hard to find time to blog these days especially with the holidays coming up but I’m trying my best to organize my time and thoughts. Anyways, Here is my wishlist for Christmas this year up on my facebook. I usually do it in note format but this year I’ve decided to just put it in a photo album. It’s also perfect because my birthday is only two weeks before Christmas so I’ll be happy double time in the next few weeks!
I have everything from cosmetics to room décor to clothing. I have a lot of cosmetics and beauty products on my list because I’ve been really good all year and haven’t devoted too much time and money to makeup. The last time I went cosmetics crazy was November-December of last year. This year of course I took advantage of all the deals and am still planning to do more beauty shopping with the sales in the next few days. I’ll be posting up my sehora F&F and VIB sale haul in the next few hours or days and a list of what I still want as well. Hopefully I can keep myself in check but considering I’ve been good with beauty purchase this year I might indulge a bit!
I’ve been neglecting my blogging because I’ve been too busy with the holidays. This like, like every year, we went to my grandmas on Christmas eve to cook dinner and sleep over. We made some yummy turkey, beef roast, potatoes, macaroni and cheese and crepes! The crepes made me cough like crazy but they were so good I did not mind at all!
We also stayed up and played games with the cousins. We tried out the clue game that kay gave me for my birthday and gave up about 15 minutes in because it was just too hard to keep track of all the rules. We instead opted for charades which turned out quite fun! Damien played charades for the first time and was so into it even though he kept getting frustrated.
Then we all went to sleep and woke up the next morning to open gifts. My sister and cousin Michelle woke up extra early around 6 to put on makeup and do their hair so they would look nice for pictures lol! Michelle does this every year!
We’re actually pretty organized about opening our gifts. We make everyone sit in a circle and pick a spot on the ground. Then we hand out gifts and set them in piles around peoples spots. Then we go around the circle and each person opens one gift at a time until there is not more. The kids hate waiting to open their gifts but this way we can appreciate everyone’s gifts and also keep the trash organized. Here are some pictures:
After all the chaos, we went home to get ready and open gifts with our parents. Then we drove to other grandma’s house and opened gifts over there with my mom’s side of the family. I took some shots while waiting for the gifting to start.
I let my little cousin Natalie take pictures with my camera and here are some of her shots lol:
And finally here are some shots of what I got this year:
Here are some other ones:
And last but not least, the biggest secret I was hiding this year!
I’m so glad I found it and overall, this year was great!
Yesterday was our movie night so I went to my sisters. Here are some pictures of my makeup:
I had a little time before meeting up so I shopped around at Target first. I got my dad a giftset and spent about $30 on medicine so I’m all drugged up now lol 🙂 I also took a picture of my dream tree (yes, I have a dream tree lol)
After target I headed to my sisters. We made Pho and watched two movies.
It was also Kao’s birthday so we sang Happy birthday to her!
We also went to Olmex to celebrate a little. Here are a picture stolen from xti.
It was snowing hard yesterday and I knew it wouldn’t stop so I decided to take the trek home instead of sleep at my sisters because I knew if I didn’t I would be stuck there all day the next day. Driving home wasn’t too bad but I’ve decided now that I hate snow. Hopefully after Christmas, we’ll no longer have ice or snow.
