Let there be thanksgiving

Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving.
Ephesians 5:4


- Happy Thanksgiving -

I'm "Blank" Because


I’m weird because…
I wear PJs at home all day. & so does tokki in his onesies & shirt+diaper combos.
I rehearse what conversations might sound like in my head before it happens.
Cool weather makes me want to stay inside... like hibernate.
It takes me forever to come up with answers to lists/surveys like this.
I always give Tare's (actual) name when making orders because they always spell/pronounce mine wrong.

I’m a bad friend because…
I'm not a phone person so I don't call.
Sometimes I give bad advice (in hindsight).

I’m a good friend because…
I will always listen.
I'm always up for prayer requests, I'll pray right then and there.
I'm loyal and trustworthy.

I’m sad because…
We won't spend Thanksgiving in Colorado with family like we always have.
I haven't had time to work out and I actually want to.
We had to throw away half of our rice because bugs were in the bag. Ew.
I don't have any mommy friends around me.

I’m happy because…
We still get to spend Thanksgiving with family, with cousins.
I have a smartphone for the first time in my life and it's pretty cool.
tokki slept in this morning until 9:40am and I had time to read the Bible and spend the morning alone.
My husband loves his job, I love my job, and my son is healthy and thriving.

I’m excited for…
Turkey and fixings.
Spending more time with Tare this extra long holiday weekend.
A new cousin to be born soon who will be the same age as tokki.

Thanks Sandy (Sandyalamode) for the idea! I'm also excited to for her family & baby boy who is due soon ;)

tokki watch: Nine Months

35-38 Weeks


Oh my, I have a nine month old baby! (There are only three months until he's ONE year old, wow!)

At nine months, you...
*are giving kisses and waving
*walking with the help of your walker and trying to stand on your own
*love Korean pumpkin soup and Korean chicken soup and a variety of fruits
*are very curious and observant, sometimes shy but mostly enjoy people's attention
*love playing with animal finger puppets and reading Itsy Bitsy Spider & Guess How Much I Love You
*are "dancing" to music you enjoy
*have one adorable tooth


Nine months

I love seeing your bright personality develop and your innocent joy is contagious! I pray that stays with you and you continue to be a light in others' lives.

Thirty-nine Weeks

fill in the blank friday

 I'm linking up at the little things we do!

Great grandfather & tokki

1.   A nervous habit I have is pinching my neck. Not sure why I do this but I always end up having red splotches on my neck.

2.   Something that makes me sad is thinking about losing someone close to me. I haven't experienced it yet and as I get older, so do my parents and my grandparents...

3.  Today I am thankful for my son's contagious laughter, our family's health, and that it's my husband's Friday off so we can spend the day together.

4. My favorite room in my house is my living room which is very open (into the kitchen), has lots of light, and is where we spend all day playing.

5.  I can't stand embarrassing moments. I actually think my super power is remembering every embarrassing moment of mine and even other people. It just makes me cringe (and some make me laugh really hard).

6.  If I had an extra $100 to spend on whatever I wanted today I would extend the Citrus Lane subscription I had and possibly sign up for a few boxes from Foodzie.

7.  The last person I hung out with was tokki, like always. It's pretty amazing being with someone so cute 24/7, my little sidekick. <3

Happy weekend!

Monkeys & Peas Family Photoshoot


Back in September, we drove down to Venice Beach to take family photos. We wanted to capture our family with a 7 month old tokki because time is fleeting! Monkeys & Peas Photography (Trina) did a wonderful job taking beautiful photos of our son and the three of us together. It was nice to be in front of the lens for once since I seem to be behind it for the most part.

September 2011

These are my favorite shots. I'm excited to get some of them printed and up on our walls!

We spent the last days of October and the first days of November in Colorado. {tokki & I tagged along on Tare's business trip.)
It was chilly, sunny, snowy, and beautiful every single day there. Time spent with family and friends was treasured as it was our last visit for this year.
The holidays are coming and I miss you more than ever home state.
