facebook cover photos

ever since facebook came out with the cover photo feature, i've been wondering what to do with that space. sometimes the pictures i uploaded didn't look quite right even after i tried dragging and repositioning. then one day i had to thank a bunch of people for helping me fundraise for a particular cause. instead of giving them shout outs individually, i decided to say a big ole thank you using the facebook cover photo space. and after that, different notes just kept coming and soon i started to incorporate my pictures with little messages.

here are some of my collections so far **all images are mine unless noted otherwise** (i usually don't put a black border around the ones that have white backgrounds, but for the purposes of this blog post, i added them in):

the little prince image is from here

facebook cover photo dimensions are 851 x 315. i created them using photoshop. fonts i downloaded at fonts for peas, dafont.comcreative bloq and various others places (i usually just google - design fonts free). my favorite fonts right now has to be franchise and canned whale. finally, i get my color combinations here.

if you have any other resources or sites to share, please do so! would love to check them out.

halloween is coming

and so is hurricane sandy. so we decided to spend the rainy cold night indoors making jack o' lanterns.  i chose a more traditional pattern while yangkyu chose a scary creepy one. we felt like kids all over again. and of course i made yangkyu listen to me sing flying purple people eater to officially welcome halloween and end the night. it's one of those songs you learn in elementary school chorus that never ever leaves you. 

hope everyone on the east coast stays safe! and here's to a ghoulish halloween!

friday date night

i had planned on making korean food for dinner on friday but felt lazy as ever. yangkyu must've known cos when he phoned after work, he called for a date night. so instead of cooking and getting stuck with the dishes, we gulped down burgers and cajun fries at five guys and walked hand in hand under the moon planning for the weekend.

sometimes you just gotta ditch making dinner and turn it into a date night.

autumn mornings with piri & yangkyu

they look a little like this. 

enjoying the last few days of warm autumn until it turns cold and crisp. the colors of the leaves continue to change in the most amazing way.

oh boy.. it's monday

over the weekend, we: 

1. caught up with lots and LOTS of sleep
2. got our hair/fur done 
3. went korean grocery shopping for the first time in a long time & made our favorite side dishes!
4. broke out our portable butane gas stove (reserved for black outs) and had a go-gi party
5. went to THE CUTEST little restaurant in annandale - red holic - and had my favorites, dumplings & kimbob
6. then went home and overdosed on salmon sushi
7. watched way too many episodes of house hunters on hgtv
8. decided to make a box full of wishful wants for our own dream home (some day.. some day!)
9. went trench coat hunting for me (no luck.. sigh)
10. made a promise to get back to our normal sleeping pattern come monday 

it's monday, so we: 

1. broke our promise in getting back to our normal sleeping pattern
2. but still had breakfast together and shared orange juice
3. are already waiting for the weekend 
4. really promised ourselves to make that day trip to philadelphia before the month is out 
5. clicked our heels and wished three times that this will be a fantabulous week

well, we actually know it will be :)
happy monday everyone!

we all got groomed today...

piri wasn't too happy when he woke up today. he was getting groomed. but we just happen to have stumbled upon the most perfect place for him. he came out looking fantastic. we were groomer-hopping ever since moving to the dc area two years ago and i think we finally found "the one" - affectionate pet care & stacey. yippie!

while piri was getting groomed, yangkyu and i headed over to mimi & mina's to get groomed ourselves.  think we all scored today.

happy saturday!

on repeat: ne me quitte pas & ... donuts.

i have this song on repeat as i am plowing through the day. and donuts have officially consumed my life.

i had the oddest sleeping pattern starting from 11 pm when i fell asleep, then woke up at 2 am, fell back asleep at 4 am, then woke up again 7, fell asleep at 9 and woke up at 10. and every time i woke up i craved a donut. i had a couple and i'm eating one now.
