A Change

Last time I got my hair cut short was at least 4 years ago after a birth of a little one. I have always adored long hair for as long as I could remember. One reason being that when growing up, it was a requirement for every girl who attended public schools (not every public school but certain ones) to wear short hair back home in Thailand up until high school level. Not sure if it's still the same these days. So you could imagine my excitement to start growing long hair. Changing hairstyle is a huge deal as I am not very adventurous in the hair department especially chopping so much length off at once. However, it's nice to change things up from time to time and I will appreciate it more at how much shampoo/conditioner and time I can save when washing and drying my hair, right?

Things that make me smile

A red tricycle passes from one generation to another. It used to belong to my husband when he was a little boy. It is still in a pristine condition (thanks to mother in law who has taken great care of and loved it). I am sure it means more than just a tricycle to her, it reminisce sweet memories.)

That face never fails to brighten the world. A laugh that can change a bad day into a good one.

 All we really need is someone to love and to be loved after all. If you have already had them in your life, cherish and never take them for granted. Don't waste time and energy on toxic/negative people who do nothing but lie and hurt others. Life is too short not to love those who truly care.

Oh crepes~*

*Warning: this post may cause major drooling if your stomach is empty.*
In the past months, we continued to sample a few new restaurants. One of the best places we recently discovered was introduced to us by LivingSocial (Gotta love Groupon and LivingSocial sites!). The name of the place alone sounded tempting "Sweet Paris Creperie". It made me wonder if it would taste any like crepes in Paris (given that I have never been to Paris before). I was completely sold by the deal since I had never tried any crepe place in Houston before. The deal included two savory crepes and two sweet crepes for just $20 (regular price $40). So far we have gone back twice already which pretty much says it is sooooo yummy!!! Adore the Parisian/chic decoration and colors.
We were glad the deal included savory and sweet because we wanted to try them all!! Totally willing to be a pig for one day (but one crepe is very filling really.) We ordered Chicken Carbonara / Chicken Enchiladas / Apple Cinnamon Crème Brulee & last but not least S'Mores. Oh my goodness, the savory crepes were out of this world yummy. The carbonara sauce was creamy/rich and full of flavor. My husband loved his Chicken Enchiladas. By the time we stuffed ourselves silly with savory crepes, we were pretty full yet had to try the sweet crepes. They were decadent and delicious. Thumbs up! Bon Appetit!! If you ever visit Houston and are in a mood for crepes, be sure to give this place a try.

Hello Pumpkin....*

 photo l8_zpsdd80021e.jpg
This must be the longest break I took from blogging so far in years. The past few months were like....meh....blah...and unproductive to say the least, unlike the first quarter of the year when I felt so fired up to accomplish and tackle so many projects then it just fell flat and here it is November ALREADY!! What else? Thanksgiving is less than two weeks?!?!
Hope all you blogging buddies are doing well. Sorry for a long hiatus, just wanted to pop in to say hi. I almost forgot how to blog. Hope to come back to this space and post more often. Miss ya!!
