Tis the Season

Christmas tree up              √
House decorated               √
Feeling the Holiday cheer √
Presents bought

Yes that is a fleece blanket underneath the tree, Last year when looking for a skirt to my disbelief that were priced WAY more than I wanted to pay, so I went to Walgreens and bought this for like $5!! 

          It's finally starting to look like Christmas in this household. Its hard to believe that Christmas is less than a month away.  I have to get on the ball with holiday shopping, I did not buy one thing for anyone when I went shopping Saturday, Yes, I'm guilty, I only shopped for myself.  Looking forward to these warmer temperatures heading our way come this weekend. What should I do?

Shopping Saturday

I love to shop, however you could not pay me to go out on Black Friday!

So I went out on Saturday, and I do say I got some pretty good deals! 

Gap had 60% off on select sweaters and Anthropologie put an extra 25% off already clearanced merchandise and JCrew had 25% off everything in the store. I'm getting excited for Christmas now!! 


{Blazer from JCrew, shoes Anthro, Peplum Top Anthro(here) Abercrombie jeans Jewels:Oxford Trunk Necklace(here) Betsy Johnson watch and BCBG "Dream" Bracelet

I bought this peplum top in white and black a few months back at anthropologie (on sale $50), did some alterations and could not find anything to wear with it. Until yesterday, I thought it looked quite good under my Jcrew Blazer!

It was so stinkin cold outside yesterday, I was freezing, but I hate wearing coats. I refuse until it gets below 30ºF!!
Are you ready for Cyber Monday???! I AM!

Happy Thanksgiving

Well with Thanksgiving coming to an end I wanted to acknowledge it. 

I did not do the whole 22 days of thanksgiving but if I had these are the things I would have said:


        Every day I ask God why he has blessed me with such an amazing life. Why was I born in a country where I can freely do what I want. Why I was born into a christian home where I was taken to church every week. Why was I born with no physical problems. Why I am so blessed with a family who by the way is a little disfunctional but that's the best part. Why I met such an amazing guy who takes care of me and loves me despite my flaws. Why I have such amazing friends, near and far. Why I have never known what it's like to be hungry or without a warm bed. Why I do not have to worry about how I'm going to  pay the next bill. I am truly truly blessed and I know I do not deserve it. I am thankful for the eternal life I have in heaven and I hope I never take anything for granted. Thankful for another year I get to spend the holidays with all of my grandparents. I am thankful for a reliable dependable vehicle and can go out a buy new clothes(and shoes) when I want. I am also thankful that I can go to school and be what I want to be. Thank you Jesus for the many blessings you have given me. I hope everyone had a very blessed Thanksgiving. Please do not take anything for granted, because it all can be taken away in a blink of an eye.

I am so very thankful I get to come home to this face every day, my baby fox

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever.
                                   Psalms 136:1

First Day

Boy did I feel old sitting there interviewing my classmate next to me. Our first assignment was to meet someone new and ask them a series of question to get to know them better with the finally result making a tag name for each other. I asked her how old she was. "18" she replied. Oh please don't ask me my age I thought after I had gathered my thoughts. Well at least she had siblings older than me. haha

I won't normally put receipts on here well just because I do not cook a whole lot and when I do it's pretty much either very basic(hello my husband is indonesian, chicken and rice are a common thing around here) or I make it up and I do not have time to write it down. BUT I do have one today. And more Bali pics. The last I promise. :)

My Potato Soup, was perfect for the cold rainy day

Total Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 5 servings


1-3/4 cups diced peeled potatoes
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/8 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 can (12 ounces) fat-free evaporated milk, divided
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese


In a large saucepan, combine the potatoes, onion, celery, broth and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-18 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Combine cornstarch and 1/4 cup milk until smooth; stir into potato mixture. Add the remaining milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Stir in cheese until melted.

Mmmm, it was good
