Questions:

1.  How many pillows do you sleep with?
2.  Where will you eat on Thanksgiving?
3.  Would you rather go to a party or host a party?
4.  How many purses (for the guys..wallets) do you own?
5.  What is your favorite kind of seafood?

my answers:

1.  i sleep with four large pillows and sometimes jared’s baby bolsters and moo pillow join the party!

2.  we do not celebrate thanksgiving here in the philippines but if we do i will most likely celebrate it eating a sumptious (i hope!) meal hear at home

3.  i’d rather that i go to a party than host it, from what i experienced with my son’s first birthday (which reminds me, i haven’t posted it in its entirety)!

4.  am not really a purse type of person cause i prefer to bring my backpack or my mailman bag wherever i go, and of late, the not-so-handy-dandy diaper bag that has all my son’s travel essential. i would just put my stuffs in the dappy’s bag pocket for convenience.but here is a preview of my new diaper bag i ordered from indigo baby!

5.  my favorite kind of seafood is tuna!i can eat everything tuna, tuna belly, sizzling tuna, and yes even fita in tuna flavor used to by my staple. can’t get enough of it:)

music monday: Owl City – Fireflies

this is one of the latest songs jared is listening to. he would just stare at the screen, unmoving as if entranced. maybe the cute toys caught his attention or probably the catchy lyrics won his heart, whichever, we play this over and over and over again each morning and he never grow tired.

Fireflies lyrics
Songwriters: Young, Adam;

You would not believe your eyes
If ten million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep

‘Cause they’d fill the open air
And leave teardrops everywhere
You’d think me rude
But I would just stand and stare

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems

‘Cause I’d get a thousand hugs
From ten thousand lightning bugs
As they tried to teach me how to dance

A foxtrot above my head
A sock hop beneath my bed
A disco ball is just hanging by a thread

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems
When I fall asleep

Leave my door open just a crack
(Please take me away from here)
‘Cause I feel like such an insomniac
(Please take me away from here)
Why do I tire of counting sheep
(Please take me away from here)
When I’m far too tired to fall asleep

To ten million fireflies
I’m weird ’cause I hate goodbyes
I got misty eyes as they said farewell

But I’ll know where several are
If my dreams get real bizarre
‘Cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems
When I fall asleep

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems
When I fall asleep

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
Because my dreams are bursting at the seams
