Reminiscing...

Would you believe, I already posted my HNT and realized last week I did something in bed too and don't want to do same thing in a row...I decided to pull it down and change it.

But change it with what?!!!

Then I saw an old photo of me and my baby...and only after I check my watch I realized I have been staring at it for awhile...

Posting it here...so I can stare it all I want! And for the world to stare at it too!


Breakfast in bed with my baby! ;)


Happy HNT!



Check Os, for other HNT!

Happy Monday!

*** This is a Sticky Post ***

Please scroll down below for the following entries;







Fun Monday

SayreSmiles, our host Fun Monday host for this week set the following theme:

"Every day as I go to work, I see things around me that make me laugh. Usually these are in the forms of signs. So take your camera with you as you go about your business and take a picture of the things that make you laugh along the way (but it doesn't necessarily HAVE to be a sign)."

Though there are quite funny things I see on my way to work, what I'm posting here is one what made really LOL last weekend. This is in one of those temples that Mariposa always go to every weekend...and only last Saturday I did NOTICE it.




I apologize for the not so good quality of the photo, I was only using my cellphone's cam...

The sign should READ:

Precaution: Car theif incident may occur

So if you park here, don't be suprise if you're only left with that one big stone...LOL

Happy Fun Monday everyone!

Music Manic Monday!

Manic Monday today is anything about TWO.

So, I picked the song POWER OF TWO for both Music Monday and Manic Monday.

SHE loves this song so much...so this is for HER!



Now the parking lot is empty
Everyones gone someplace
I pick you up and in the trunk Ive packed
A cooler and a 2-day suitcase
Cause theres a place we like to drive
Way out in the country
Five miles out of the city limit were singing
And your hands upon my knee

So were okay
Were fine
Baby Im here to stop your crying
Chase all the ghosts from your head
Im stronger than the monster beneath your bed
Smarter than the tricks played on your heart
Well look at them together then well take them apart
Adding up the total of a love thats true
Multiply life by the power of two

You know the things that I am afraid of
Im not afraid to tell
And if we ever leave a legacy
Its that we loved each other well
Cause Ive seen the shadows of so many people
Trying on the treasures of youth
But a road that fancy and fast
Ends in a fatal crash
And Im glad we got off
To tell you the truth

Cause were okay
Were fine
Baby Im here to stop your crying
Chase all the ghosts from your head
Im stronger than the monster beneath your bed
Smarter than the tricks played on your heart
Well look at them together then well take them apart
Adding up the total of a love thats true
Multiply life by the power of two

All the shiny little trinkets of temptation
(make new friends)
Something new instead of something old
(but keep the old)
All you gotta do is scratch beneath the surface
(but remember what is gold)
And its fools gold
(what is gold)
Fools gold
(what is gold)
Fools gold

Now were talking about a difficult thing
And your eyes are getting wet
I took us for better and I took us for worse
Dont you ever forget it
Now the steel bars between me and a promise
Suddenly bend with ease
The closer Im bound in love to you
The closer I am to free

Happy Hearts Week Everyone!

It's Feb. 11 of 2008, count few more days and it's the V day already...and hearts are in the air.

I will be doing Music Monday today, I missed it last week...my lovely Mariposa told me to join Fun Monday since according to her, it's also on music...so I might as well hit two birds with one stone. So when I went to check on her Monday Fever, looks like I can do hit 3...

Here is the Fun Monday assignment for the week:

Music plays a vital role in most of our lives. It is everywhere. I want to hear the ONE song that is you. The song that whenever it is heard, you smile. I am not looking for the soundtrack of your life, just that one song. Your friends hear it and think of you. You can post the video, the lyrics, the wav file. However you want to post it is great.

What About Love was what she asked me five years ago...glad I gave her the right answer! I make this wonderful song by Heart my entry for Fun Monday and Music Monday...



Well, Manic Monday this week is "heart" which happens to be the name of the artist who sung the entry above...ha ha, how FUN!

Yet, I have a bonus...



Please see other participants -

No one like you... (Powder)

Just accidentally just stumbled into this video. It has been a long time since I've last seen this movie. I just want to share this with you.



Sarah Brightman -- No one like you

And we too - will it not be soft and kind
That rest from life, from patience and from pain
That rest from bliss, we know not when we find
How can I have enough of life and love

In your eyes are my secrets that I've never shown you
In my heart I feel I've always known you
In your arms there's a comfort that I never knew
You're what I've been waiting for, there's no one like you

Sure as the sunrise, pure as a prayer
You fashioned hope right out of thin air
Ev'ry dream I abandoned, seems it could come true
I believe in miracles, there's no one like you

Innocent as a newborn in a world so fright'ning
It's as if my world's been struck by lightning
Ev'ry dream I abandoned, seems it could come true
I believe in miracles, there's no one like you
