Remembering 9/11

Remembering 9/11

Can't believe that it has been 10 years since the attack on September 11, where were you when this happened?

I remember exactly where I was. I had just woken up in my college house when my roommate barged in to tell me to turn on the television. Scared by her blank face and the sense of urgency in her tone, I quickly turned on my TV in my room and saw the first tower in flames. Then a few seconds later, I watched the second plane hit the other tower. I will always remember that day.

Opa! The Greek Festival is finally here!

Opa! The Greek Festival is finally here!

Other than Christmas in Stockton, the Greek Festival at Saint Basil church is an event I’m always looking forward to.

What? A Filipina excited about a Greek Festival? Yeah…who would’ve guessed that? But in my defense, I must say that Greek food has always been one of my favorite cuisines. The culture too is very similar to the Filipino culture…eating all the time, occasional singing and dancing even though it’s too hot outside and load socializing. All that’s missing in the Greek culture is a 5 foot boxer/karaoke soon-to-be singer/ Congressman.

Anyway back to topic at hand, I got hooked on the Greek festival when I was in elementary school, Carden Academy to be exact. My classmate had asked me to join her for the festival and I had always been interested in new things, especially when it came to trying out new cuisines.

Stylish Moms of Teething Babies

Stylish Moms of Teething Babies

It's true, you can be the mom to a beautiful teething, drooling baby and still be gorgeous and stylish!

I know this because I found this unique necklace made of unfinished natural wood beads wrapped and knotted in beautiful fabric that can be made of organic fabric that matches your style!

Oh... so... pretty!

Ashlee of TweetBabyDesigns on Etsy is the creator of these lovely necklaces. And I am in awe of how she finds the time to make them considering she is a stay at home mom to six home-schooled kiddos... I think her nickname should be Super Woman.

More about the necklaces...

The wood provides the perfect resistance and pressure to help babies cut their teeth and the fabric absorbs the fool that is inevitable at this teething stage.

The fabric is high quality, organic, designer, 100% cotton and the beads are unfinished wood.
