August 15 is a special day for me. 1st of all it is Blog Catalog Appreciation Day. I have been a member of Blogcatalog for over a year and through that site got to know many different bloggers and their wonderful blogs. There are hundred over blogs listed at that site under various categories. Do go check it out if you haven’t made your way there yet.
It’s my birthday!! Yeah!! I’m turning the big 3-0 this year. It marks a turning point in my focus in live . My goals and dreams that I have set out to achieve have drastically changed since I was 20. Back then my plan was to get a good job, get married have 3-4 kids by 30yrs old. Well I managed to do 2/3 of what I had targeted. I got married in my early 20s , have 2 kids( had 2 MC). Still hoping to have at least a #3(wanna have a baby girl) by 33yrs old. My job as an elementary school teacher is not as great as it was hyped out to be. I rather enjoy being a WAHM then go back to teach full time once my NPL is up. Having a full time job is not a priority to me now as compared to spending time with the kids and educating them properly.
Last weekend Ryan attended his 1st pizza party. It was great fun seeing the kids piling up all their favourite ingredients onto the pre-made pizza base. While the pizza was being baked at the kitchen at the condo’s function room the kids were busy watching TV at an adjourning room. It was the 1st time that I have seen a fully functional kitchen which one could book for parties at a condo. What a great idea/venue for private cocktail functions or when you want to have a special sit down dinner without messing up your own kitchen.
Great -Grand Ma (4th generation yeah!!). Ryan & Roy are the fourth generation from this great old dame. My grandma has 7 kids (1 boy and 6 girls) 17 grandchildren ,and 6 (+1 on the way ) great grand kids. She is an excellent cook and I am in the midst of helping her compile her cookbook to share with the rest of the family as a christmas gift this year.
Earlier on this month I mentioned that her birthday would be the deadline for the July giveaway that I was running. That giveaway is officially ended. It didn’t go down that well as besides Angeline there wasn’t anyone else who left a comment on that post. Nevertheless I will try with other giveaways when I have established more traffic and popularity with this blog.
