I would love to have a craft room like the ones above. It’s great that everything has its place and everything is organized. I think anyone would be inspired to work in a space like this.

I’m not into sports or the great outdoors, I’m contented staying at home and reading books/magazines or watching my favorite shows. I thought I didn’t miss out a lot but now that I have kids I most certainly to my best to expose them to outdoor activities. I’m not gonna go out and buy half chaps right away for my girls but I would take the family out in the park to have picnics and ride bicycles. I know this would be something they will enjoy, as for me…if it will make my kids happy I’m more than willing to do anything. It should be fun.

My friend just got a casio cdp-100 for her daughter for her tenth birthday and she was very happy with it. She sings for our church choir so having a keyboard at home to play and practice gospel songs will be great for her. She thought about giving her daughter one when she turned seven but she decided she was still too young for it and she wanted to see if she will really take her lessons seriously before giving her such a big present. Her love for singing and playing the keyboard didn’t change so when she turned ten she got a really nice keyboard from her parents and I know she will have so much fun with it.

When I was in labor with my youngest child I wasn’t in a lot of pain at the beginning that I thought maybe I could do without epidural this time around, I thought about not asking for it and thought I can take the pain. Well I never got to find out if I indeed can take it all the way through because I chickened out and asked for the epidural when the nurses came to check on me. I got scared I guess that I would be in so much pain and that it would be too late to ask for the drugs by that time that I would be left with no choice but to endure it all. I got scared that I would have a c-section in the end because my body was too exhausted from the pain that I can’t even see the hospital computer carts nor have the energy to push the baby out. I don’t have any regrets, my beautiful child came after five hours of labor and though I had fever and chills for a few hours after the delivery we were both doing great by the morning. If we will be blessed to have another child in the future I think I will still choose to have an epidural.

When a friend of mine was renovating their home she took into consideration having a lot of built in storage for the whole apartment. She collects designer purses and her husband have a lot of basketball trophies so they needed a lot of storage space. Good thing they got a very good interior designer that helped them get as much storage space as possible without making their two bedroom apartment cramped. It was perfect for both of them, they worked closely to make sure all their preferences were met and that every detail was just right. It took them six months to finish the renovation but it turned out great and they got exactly what they wanted.

I stumbled upon these lovely organized craft rooms at Pinterest the other day (where else really) and I thought I should blog about it to keep me motivated to keep my teeny craft space neat and tidy.

Don’t I wish I have a craft room and not just a craft table in the living room, I could lock myself in there and create all sorts of fun things to recharge and be inspired. It’s on my wishlist to have my own room dedicated for everything crafty, well someday when I win the lottery I can have one (lol).

I’m not one to make a big deal out of Valentine’s day, probably because my husband is not the romantic type of guy (I wished he was). It would have been fun looking for gifts for Valentine’s Day 2012 but when nothing happens unless I say so it kinds of take the fun out of everything. Having two kids also makes it a challenge to do anything romantic but mostly it’s because I don’t get anything fun/romantic/surprising each year. I would probably do something crafty with my daughter to give her daddy and make the girls wear red outfits so I can take pictures of them but that’s about it. No getting swept off your feet on valentine’s day around here.

We don’t have a garden here so I can’t really give my mom advice whether she should get a couple of nice hanging chair outdoor for when she have visitors our just stick to her old and trusted outdoor furniture. It’s one of those things I know nothing about and doesn’t mind it one bit. I do love to be in the garden when I’m home with a book or two but not for long lest I want to be bitten by mosquitoes. I love looking at the flowers too, I don’t have a green thumb nor I will find it fun to do gardening work ever but I like looking at them.

I see those featured houses at Real Living and I love those double bowl sinks you see in the bathrooms. Who wouldn’t want a his and hers sink in the bathroom? I would love one if ours was big enough, I would love to have my own nook to put all my girly stuff and not share it with a boy (lol). One can dream right, this is why I subscribed to home decorating magazines in the first place so that I an imagine my perfect dream home. I love ours but you know what I mean, it’s fun to see those celebrity homes and wished I won the lottery and makeover our house from top to bottom (or better yet buy a new one that is twice the size of our current home). Like I said one can dream right….

When everyone else I know are busy Christmas shopping and wrapping presents a friend of mine is busy reviewing a few rv insurance quote that he received a few days ago. He likes to go on road trips with his girlfriend that is why he bought a used rv last year, well now he must face the nitty gritty details of owning one which meant making sure it is well maintained and have good insurance coverage. I’m not so sure it was a good idea to own one in the first place but hey I don’t go on spontaneous road trips so what do I know right.
