Dreaming of a White Christmas

Ever since I was a young girl and saw the immaculate white Christmas tree of my Lola Vey at their house, I knew I would get a different colored tree when I grew up.  I love the idea of bringing in other colors into a festive event.  I still love the red and green and all the glitter and shimmer that comes from gold and silver. (wow, it rhymes! haha)  I kind of remembered telling my Mom to get a white tree when we had to replace our old one but she told me if dust or dirt settled on the tree it would be so obvious. So no white tree for us.

But now... I get to buy my own big tree! And I can pick a different colored one! :D  I contemplated getting a silver one made of tinsel but I had a hard time thinking about how we would actually clean it after.  So I decided to stick to white, blank canvass for any type of holiday color scheme that I want! haha

Sooooo on to decor ideas!

How about a rainbow tree?

Go crazy with color

home sweet home

And the best part of having a white tree lets your ornaments take the center stage!!!

Going to the urban jungle known as Divisoria in a few days, so I will just keep you updated about what will be the final turn out of our first tree!!! :)

Thanksgiving! Cheers to moving in!!!

Hi Everyone!

I know I haven't posted anything since October but I do have a couple of good reasons for my negligence. :)  I think Thanksgiving is a great way to get back into the blogging bit since I have a lot of things to be thankful for. :)

First I took advantage of the looooong Nov 1 weekend and we moved in to our house:

Things have improved a lot since then I assure you. :)

Then we moved in and had the blessing of Achievers!

Some shameless plugging first.  If you live within Gen. Trias, Tanza, Naic, Maragondon, Ternate, Trece Martires and Rosario and you are in need of QUALITY occupational therapy and speech pathology services from licensed and certified therapists call ACHIEVERS at 09151864746.   We're along A. Soriano Hiway Tanza, Cavite! Add us up on facebook by clicking here

Will be posting more updates soon! Such as how to turn IKEA furniture assembly into a contest, our quest in finding the perfect faucet (took us a couple of hours I tell you!) and never ending pamahiins (lipat bahay edition).

I know God is a great and giving and there were a lot of trying times these couple of months but in the end were so many blessings to be thankful for! Such as sleeping in our own bed and house, finally having access to running water, setting up a clinic in under one month and having cable service installed to the TV! Oh I am also thankful for family, friends, colleagues, clients and an awesome husband who makes the best efforts to clean the house.  What are you thankful for?
