jared’s little corner is back + so is blogger!

a view from my room
it has been one quiet day from this little corner, no thanks to blogger’s recent chaos. mum was just hurriedly trying to post some of our backlogs when the post editor suddenly gone berserk + she could no longer post (that was wednesday, i think) then yesterday morning, she could no longer sign in on our blogger account + had to give up updating this blog altogether.
we are only glad that blogger is back + so are we..
offline it was quite a laid-back day with practically nothing to do, i guess mum was feeling a little lazy so she was easy on the home chores, nothing note-worthy really, apart from the power interruption (again, since there was another one in wednesday too!) which happened whilst mum is cooking dinner a little late. it meant one very hot + humid night again for me, but i guess i was a bit exhausted + dosed off easily anyway. i am still in dreamland as you read this…
also, we will be heading Subic-bound in  a few hours (yes, + whilst i sleep soundly, mum was up for almost 24 hours already!). it will be our first family swimming outing + i am sooo excited. too bad my tito + titas cannot join us since they will be busy with work half of the day. i do hope we can go on a swim again before summer ends. maybe somewhere just near our place so anyone, including my cousins, can join us 🙂
happy weekend everyone + stay safe y’all!
and please do not forget to join our very first giveaway (if you haven’t yet!), much thanks to those who joined (i was hoping you can all be winners, but alas, this corner has quite a limited budget, we’ll just come up with something in the future!) + for those who forgot to indicate which prize you’d like to vie for, mum has left a comment on your post + do update us as soon as you can, ayt?

mommy + me monday 02: mother’s day 2011

mum + i did not have quite a good photo on mother’s day (she has yet to study the art of taking self-portraits!hehe) but i guess this one will do. this is just a quick shot my mum took the morning of mother’s day in our room (notice my new haircut? will post on it in a while) 
we were stuck inside the house on a gloomy + rainy mother’s day sunday, but it’s all good, since we’ve been out the whole day yesterday for the expomom (which will be posted soon too) + for my very long overdue haircut! so we kinda enjoyed the lazy time spent at home. i particularly enjoyed taking naps as the weather made me fell a sleep so much easier.
we had a sumptuous kenny rogers dinner, courtesy of my tita cecille (sorry guys no photo was taken, dinner was gone soon as it was served, see!haha!), i particularly enjoyed their chicken noodle soup it is one of my favorite food! rounds of hershey’s with milk chocolate + reese cups ice cream were served  afterwards but i didn’t feel like having ice cream that night. 
we capped the night all cooped up in my room watching tangled for the nth time! it was such a fun mother’s day all in all + i know mum enjoyed it lots too:)
got any mother’s day photo?

this is our entry to this week’s

Mommy and Me Monday at Really, Are You Serious?
