I was looking for junk food to munch on before lunch today and found nothing. Instead, I found my stash of healthy cacao nibs from Superfood Grocer. Their website says this:
Organic Raw Cacao Nibs, Organic Coconut Sugar
Pure Healthy Chocolate
Now that's my healthy choco fix!

With the resurgence of retro fashion these days, the short hair is still very mod especially for statuesque women with model-esque necks. I actually admire the few who could wear this androgynous mane and still look feminine and very well put together.
I'm not statuesque and the pixie look doesn't suit me. Instead, I have the beginnings of turkey neck ("gobble-gobble") and a jowl where my square jaw used to be, hmm, not exactly a pretty sight to display at my age. So unless I go for a little nip here and a tuck there, I would keep my hair long. Besides, hubby loves it the way it is. ;)

My hubby and the other employees are now working from home. Today after work, they all got together, had dinner and a few drinks in the office. Then karaoke using youtube promptly followed. Some could actually sing well while some belted out notes just for fun or probably because of inebriation. :)

Jake had a large cup of fresh orange-mango shake (no sugar) while hubby and I had fresh buko juice which I partnered with Cebuano bibingka. It's a relief to know that this is one of the many schools here that mandate their cafeteria operators to refrain from selling sodas.
I hope next to be taken off the shelves are the sweetened artificially-flavored teas. Our already hyperactive kids do not need these drinks, with excessive sugar and questionable ingredients (that are hard to say and even harder to spell!), in their system.
On another note, it's not just the act of getting Jake from school, I also look forward to sharing fresh healthy food during snack time with the bub, while he still "allows" me to do so. :)

Many benefits of inversions—especially bathing the poor old tired brain with freshly oxygenated blood to perk it up—accrue to Prasarita without any weight-bearing stress on the neck. In general, Prasarita is a good warm-up for other wide-stance standing poses...
- Stretches backs of legs and inner groins
- Tones abdominal organs
- Calms the brain and eases fatigue
- Improves circulation
- Hamstring injury
- Groin injury
- Lower back injury (for full pose)

This was taken 7 years ago while hubby and I were on a business trip in the USA. My brother was also there so he took us around the sights in Los Angeles and Santa Monica, etc. We even went on 2 weekend trips to Las Vegas, New York, New Jersey and Toronto. Haha.
Whenever we get the chance to travel, it is usually packed. And we try to squeeze in as many places as we could. The very first time was in 2003 (the kids were old enough to be left behind) when hubby and I visited my brother and wife M in Switzerland. We swung by Italy and France too, all in about 18 days. It's always so much fun traveling with these two.
The next time we traveled together in the USA was in 2010 and recently in May 2013. I hope it doesn't take long for the next one.
-A Flashback Friday post-
I have finally gotten around to replacing all of them. This morning I was choosing between making my blog rounds or sewing the new buttons by hand. I chose the latter. Hehe. Because it's Friday, I wanted the option of wearing this dress other than my usual jeans and shirt combo. And I don't usually wear a dress because of numerous reasons, one of them is when a dress is missing a button or two. Now I've gotten that out of the way... We'll see.
The buttons are kinda off color but that's the closest shade of green I could get my hands on. So... there.

"Maybe you should send them money for shavers, Ma", exclaimed the youngest son when he saw this pic of his brothers. Hmm, maybe not, I thought. Unless scruffy is the "in" thing in uni these days, or they're too busy cramming for their midterm exams, they just need to spend some extra time to clean up.
