Major Latex Allergy…

November 21, 2014

A few weeks ago I expressed my hate for having to wear pantyhose, stockings and tights of all types. Now, I have another reason to hate them, I’m allergic to the latex on the bands!!!

How am I suppose to survive the winter if I get an allergic reaction…

First Week of Work!!!

November 16, 2014

This was my first week of work in Sweden. I needed to look and feel my best so DVF was my only choice. There goes more dry cleaning bills! LOL. So far I am loving my new career here.

My childhood friends were all different ethnicities: Indian-American, Vietnamese-American, Chinese-American, African-Americans and Mexican-Americans. But we were all Americans. I can see that it isn’t that way here. Daniel was…

Father’s Day

November 10, 2014

This past weekend we hosted Father’s Day at our place. It was a special occasion because not only was this our first Father’s Day with Daniel’s father, this was the first time his grandparents (Dedo & Baba) saw our apartment. They have been wanting to come to our place for awhile and we thought this would be the perfect time. Of course it meant preparing another feast. I’ve gotten quite used to cooking for a crowd and don’t feel the…
