i've been doing this a lot lately

there never seems to be enough hours in a day and my task list is not shrinking.
and i've been yawning, yawning and yawning even more. 
see! i just yawned again. 
and i make my husband yawn cos i think it's contagious.
and it's the worst when you're trying not to yawn when you're talking to someone. 
it almost makes me want to say, "please keep talking. i yawn when i'm interested."

we're celebrating a doggy birthday here

piri's birthday isn't until tuesday, but we decided to celebrate a little early with presents and homemade sweet potato cake. 

we picked up a few things from olive green dog (where we got piri's bow tie for christmas) --
some treats // a cute little octopus toy // billy wolf dixon bandana // personalized id tag 
(i ordered a little late so the tag is still making its way to us).

we usually stop by doggy style in dc to pick up a few bakery treats for piri for his birthday, but this year we decided to make him a cake. we steamed sweet potato and decorated with old mother hubbard milkbones and science diet training treats. 
i think he liked it. he gobbled it up.

happy 14th birthday, piri. 
it's going to be a fantastic year of new adventures & shenanigans.

he throws mini impromptu concerts for us

we love little impromptu concerts in our home.
like this time when yangkyu dusted off his old guitar 
and strummed a little bluesy tune for us.
the weather was so warm and the day was perfect.
we cant' wait for days like this...

dear spring, 
please hurry!

life captured, squared and magneted(lol) with stickygram

we got our newest batch of stickygrams in the mail yesterday.
they take your instagram photos and turn them into little square magnets.
if you can't tell already, i'm kind of obsessed with pictures and i love having them all around me.
they are the best reminders of how wonderful life is.

^^^ this little guy is still wondering when his fur will grow back. he got a major shave down from the wonderful stacey at affectionate pet care ^^^

can i wish for things like making the week go by in snail speed?

it's monday, but i don't have the classic monday face nor did our family go through the classic monday hysteria. this is the joy of having a week off before starting on a new job.

i love this free time; to do what i want, to take care of things that have taken a back seat, spending more time with piri and cooking for the entire family {i even made yangkyu lunch today!}.

i hope this week doesn't go by quickly.
snail speed. please? 

{a new pair of glasses picked up during the weekend. i kinda like them.}

friday, i'm in love

{snippets from our engagement shoot}

i don't care if monday's blue
tuesday's gray and wednesday too
thursday i don't care about you {actually that's not true, i think you're the best day of the week!} 
it's friday, i'm in love

i'm having a bit of a nostalgic moment with our engagement shoot and wedding.
and i love you mr. yangkyu yoo.

instant snowballs in our kitchen and how we remember daylight savings

there was cake mix sitting in my pantry so we decided to make snowballs out of them.
i mean.. make tiny cakes and cupcakes.

i can't wait until the weekend because the weather is supposed to be beautiful and it's daylight savings! you know how we always remember what to do with our clocks?
in the fall: you fall back an hour 
in the spring: you spring forward an hour
that's stuck since 2nd grade for me.

happy thursday. the best day of the week. ever. {i don't know why. it just is}


March 6, 2013

guess what we woke up to this morning

we played in it and had hot chocolate afterwards.
