Project Life 2015 ~ January 16 to 31

Project Life 2015

January 16

Today, I am done with Mr. Fox's top.....

jeans and boots....

and a scarf too...

January 20

Dolce went back to NYC for school today, little Papi is a little depressed here...

daddy try to cheer him up....

January 21

It is DH's birthday today, just like last year, I baked him pineapple upside down cake, his favorite!

January 23

Today is our wedding anniversary, we went to another cirque du soleil show, Mystere, this gotta be on top of my list, it is fun and hilarious!

January 25

I have been bothered by the problem happened at the Singapore Club, some evil soul decided to stirred things and caused a lot of trouble for me, I was deeply effected emotionally and physically, so to cheer me up, we took Papi to visit his grandma (the owner that sold Papi to us). You should see Papi meeting his little brothers, they were so tiny, like 4 pounds each, but when little brother tried to kiss Papi, he just duck away and hide his head behind me, oh Papi, he is our little baby..

January 29

Not only the issue at Singapore Club is bothering me, we had an unfortunate event around midnight today, 5 teenagers in a pick up truck came to our neighborhood, rang the door bell and then ran back to the truck, waving to us and took photo with their cell phone while we opened the window to see what happened, I saw them drive to our neighbor's house doing the same thing again, I ran downstairs trying to take down their license plate, when they saw me standing in the middle of the road, they even try to run their truck over me, where are their parents when the kids are playing punk like that in the middle of the night? 
Nothing is going smooth in life for the past week, sigh....

Papi had a little adventure today......

he went outside by himself when daddy took him to the backyard, he sneak out from the side gate while daddy was filling up the fountain, and daddy didn't know Papi wasn't around until 20 minutes later. Good thing is that, when daddy went outside to find Papi, Papi was just sniffing around outside the neighbor's garage door, whew..... and all these happened when mom is not home. : 0

January 30
My typewriter finally arrived today!

I decided not to look for a workable vintage one but just go for one that I know for sure that it is working, now I am able to read my own handwriting when I do the journaling for my project life spread, LOL!

January 31

I never like hamburger, but Shake Shack at Madison Square park, NYC is exceptional, I just love that! We learn that they opened a Shake Shack here in Las Vegas, we finally go there to have my favorite hamburger and fries today!

I also have a creamcicle float! Yum!

The weather has been crazy the last 2 days, the week when my guests were here, we have 70s and low 80s everyday, we sat by our fountain by the backyard every morning, out of a sudden, the weather changes, I look out the window Monday morning.....

Project Life 2015

January 11

I finally done with rabbit #2, and went it to post office and sent it, by the time this post is up, my dear friend Ros already received it, I am so glad little bunny found you Ros!

today I finally done with all the invitation cards I made for Clare's recital

Clare wanted this photos instead of her baby photo I picked

in the evening, we went to a new Korean BBQ called KIMCHI with Dolce

January 12 

Dolce and I make some yellow noodles at home, this is the first time I used my pasta machine since I bought it 13 years ago.

they are really yummy, better than the store bought ones.

January 13

Today Papi sit in the front seat when I took him to grooming, he didn't give much problem.

January 14

I make Loh Mai gai (a steam glutinous rice) at home, 

and I also baked some applesauce muffins

and then Dolce and I went to Joann to get some more felt to make our Mr. Fox, we get the body done just need to make clothes for him. 

January 15

Papi doesn't really like his dry food, so we are trying to change to the moist food, but he seems to have softer stools due to the new moist food, so we really don't know what to do now. He has been trying to get a lot of attention by flipping his bowl over and spill his food all over the place lately.

Dolce took some pictures for Papi and Mr. Fox, so so cute!
