not merely cannibals {wiws}

Skirt, from UO last summer
I debated and debated about the title of this blog post. But in the end my initial title won.

Catholics were called cannibals because we believe in receiving/eating the REAL presence of Christ in the Eucharist. However, Fr. R made a good point on his homily this weekend.

This should be FriDATES with Daniel and Lucy. 
Daniel has early Saturday Teeball games. He's been staying with us on Friday nights instead of joining his other sibs with my mom. He was upset at first because he's used to going to Lola's house. Two weeks ago, I asked him what he think about Friday nights with Daddy and Mummy (& Lucy).

Indulge me here for a minute and AGREE with me that Lucy is my mini me.
Fine...  if not in features, then she's my mini me when it comes to temperament  ~ like when I need to be fed? we both can be hangry, very hangry.

on Isabel:

This past weekend was tough, not just for me, but to these little ones. Isabel was confused why I was saying goodbye/see you later everyday of the week + Saturday and Sunday. Hubs said she waited for me on Sunday and did not eat lunch. She fell asleep waiting for me.

I finished my dreaded 7 consecutive days of working at the hospital.  I don't like putting my ward weeks back to back with my weekend calls... but it just happened that way.

Lace dresses are my current infatuation of dresses this season...  The fit and flare. The midi top and pencil skirt combo. Peplum lace dresses.  I love them all.

I am sure some of you guys have seen this video about instagram husbands.
This OOTD post reminds me of that video.




This boy is in his second year of teeball. we decided to keep him with the "rookies" instead of joining the minors because he is a "young first grader." It was a great decision. He is with another friend from his school. He also has other friends from last year's league.

Back to the 40s here in the midwest. WHY OH WHY!
Teeball was cancelled for my little D. The field was wet and it was a chilly morning.
I had another outfit planned for Pentecost Sunday (no pops of red at all). That had to change. It was CHILLY.

  My pretty lady is 10 months old. 

A few updates:
She loves table food! we already gave her scrambled eggs, salmon (baked in a foil with veggies, and teriyaki salmon), white rice, fettucine alfredo. She wants to try our ice cream.

Living in Indy limits us to the beauty and mountains of the west coast. We also don't have a beach.

We make do with what we have. Indy is opening more trails and promoting its places to walk, run and bike.

 We are not, by no means, hikers. My children and husband would want to be outdoors more but with my allergies, I don't go out as much as I want to during spring.  As soon as the trees are done pollinating and blooming, then I am all set to get some sun.

I am no super mom. I am just a mom.
I don't like poop. I don't like stinky stuff. If hubs is home, I try to punt the diaper changing to him. But we gotta do what we gotta do. So I change diapers. 


interns no more {travel diary}

 My friends A and S and I had a much-needed reunion in ATL.  These are my very good friends from Pediatric residency. We were all  interns at the county hospital newborn nursery and pediatric ward. We spent every 4th night call nights at the hospital. We have shared ER shifts. We have shared rooms in the peds retreat.

I love blush tops (i love pink!) I am going away from the bright pink as I get older... mature.. mom of 4... mid-30s. whatever you call  this stage. 

I also like pencil skirts. You'd notice that I rarely wear pants now. Except for my skinnies... (helllloooooo HIPS!)
