A Quickie.

Trying to squeeze in a little blogging before we leave for dinner. I'm starving and feeling very guilty that I haven't been sticking to my New Year's resolution of blogging more (every other day at least). As usual, I've been very busy with work, the lesson plans and house chores. The Husband and I woke up very early today after learning about the Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan. I'm still worried and I keep praying the people there are okay and that everything would be over, aftershocks and all. I hate things like this but I have to admit they serve as very good reminders for us not to take anything in our lives for granted. It's just so sad and scary. Thank you Lord for keeping my friends and family safe. 

I have tons and tons of things to talk about in this blog. Our Vegas trip and the pictures, our very fun photo session with our favorite photographers Alfred & Emma, my new desk and organizing dreams, my Lenten fasting, my new health habits, etc. The list goes on and on. I'm really excited to share all the things I've been doing for the past few weeks. I'll try to post them REAL soon.

The H says we have to leave in 5 mins. Ciao! Can't wait to have that Persian dinner for Geraldine's birthday! <3

About The Vegas Trip.

The beautiful sunrise in Interstate 15 between LA and Las Vegas. 
On the road for 7 hours already.

Right now I am pigging out on $1 honey glazed donuts and Ruffles potato chips for dinner. I've been trying to eat a lot healthier these past few weeks adding lots of green vegetables and organic fresh fruits on my diet. And also drinking loads of water lest I suffer again from severe dehydration. I have this habit of drinking water only when I'm really really thirsty which is not very good since I only feel thirsty once a day. Mostly in the late afternoon and just like losing sleep, it's really bad for your body. So yes, I've been eating healthy except for tonight. The good part is I don't feel guilty :D

Anyway, God I miss blogging! It's just been crazy busy at work and at home, I haven't really gotten the time to sit down, relax and write. Vegas was one helluva trip. We weren't able to get a lot of photos but I did get to take a few pictures using my phone. Not so bad considering I rarely take pictures on trips, special occasions or even on random days. (Trying very hard to change that--New Year's resolution is to take more photos!)   

So unfortunately we weren't able to get married there. Had plans of going to the wedding chapel  and have Elvis sing for us Saturday night morning after some drinks but were all too wasted to get a cab at 3 am. We decided to go to my CIL's hotel room to binge on some pizza instead. But again, The Hubby and I were too drunk to get up and eat. Woke up later that morning having a little hangover. It was a fun night though. :) I don't really drink a lot of alcohol but that night was an exception.

Although we stayed there for only 2 nights, our Vegas trip was fun.  We were on the road for a total of almost 20 hours and it ate 2 days of our trip but it was all worth it. As soon as we arrived home I unpacked some of our stuff for a little while and then went straight to bed just to wake up very early the next morning for work. 

I don't think I want to drive to Vegas again. 10 hours is just too much. It's almost like flying to Manila. We're going back this May for my friend's bachelorette party and I have to book tickets ASAP. We might be staying a little longer than this previous trip so I hope we get to finally squeeze an appointment with Elvis this time. 

ps. Will post Vegas pics soon!
