I'm Alive!

I am now safely in the Philippines! The flight was really good for being 17 hours long! We got to sit on the second story of the plane for the first time, and there was A LOT more leg room and storage. We also requested children meals, because the adult meals are usually gross. It was neat because we get served our food first and it was actually good! Once we landed we came home and changed our clothes and left again to go get Macaroni and Cheesy. They were so excited to see us, and we were excited to see them! Cheesy was only a small puppy going through the 'uglies' when we left, she was almost bald haha. And now, she is big and has a beautiful coat of fur. I will hopefully be able to post photos of both pups later today.
Yesterday began very early for me. I woke up and it was 4 am and still dark outside. Daren and I went and took the dogs outside and afterward I lounged around on the computer catching up on all the blogs I usually read. After eating delicious pepper stir fry we went on a mission to find a place to take photos. Makati, where I live, is kind of like L.A. It is a big city with little greenery..So we ended up taking photos by the pool in our building.

Ha, I recently wore this skirt, but I hadn't unpacked yet and just grabbed whatever was on the top of my box!

Here are all the vintage patterns I collected during my stay in California! I can't wait to get a project started. I tried to take photos off the clothes I got, but it looked like an awful mess of color and patterns..Oh well!


  1. SEVENTEEN HOURS?! Oh my goodness! But I'm glad your flight was good - it's so cool how there's too floors. Despite what must have been a long day, your outfit is really cute! And those patterns are just too fun!

    Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. i love the photos, the view behind you is amazing! i made a similar skirt like yours a year ago& it's a very thick kind of satin, but with polka dotts the same you think i can wear it? your outfit has given me a little confidence, that i won't look that stupid

  3. Cute outfit!
    What part of California did you find all those patterns? Stores?
