Use a sturdy cardboard box to make an end table

Posted by on Saturday, June 7, 2014, In : DIY 
I like to keep boxes around the house because I always end up using them for storage or shipping something to a friend. I don't want to buy boxes when I can reuse the ones that I get from getting things shipped to me. My husband thinks that I'm weird that I hoard these boxes but they really come into great use! 

I got creative one day and realized I needed an end table for our bedroom near my closet. I didn't want to go out and buy one and I recently got a sturdy cardboard boxed in the mail. I...

Dim Sum House in Morrisville, NC is a nice surprise

Posted by on Saturday, July 6, 2013, In : food 
We were craving for dim sum so we researched for places with dim sum near where we were during our road trip and found Dim Sum House is Morrisville. Conveniently located not too far from my highway exit, it was easy to spot the big sign for the restaurant.

The exterior of the restaurant is definitely something you would find in North Carolina. Covered in brick with bold signs, this has got to be the most sophisticated exterior I've seen for a dim sum restaurant.

Not telling my parents I'm pregnant until 3 months

Posted by on Monday, June 24, 2013, In : Motherhood 
Ever since we found out I was pregnant, my husband and I decided to not tell our parents until the first trimester is over. I've heard of so many stories where people had miscarriages and the biggest risk is during the first trimester. Since I've never been pregnant before, I don't know what to expect from my body and to save everyone future heartaches and ourselves some possible public pain, we decided to wait. I know my husband's mother have had 2 miscarriages but I'm not sure about my mom....

First time going to the indoor Magnolia Mall in Florence, SC

Posted by on Tuesday, January 29, 2013,
I went to the mall in Florence, SC for the first time a few days ago and for a little town, I was really impressed. It's an indoor mall so when the weather is crappy outside, you can still come inside to shop. There is also a lot of restaurants inside and outside near the area. If you are just passing by the city or staying for the night, stay near the mall. See all hotels in Florence, SC.

Kid's menu stickers that I am putting on place cards for wedding

Posted by on Wednesday, October 17, 2012,
I was sitting here looking at some marketing tools online and then discovered, why don't I put a cute sticker on the back of the place cards for all of the kids who are coming to my wedding so they feel special!? Kids love stickers right?!

I've never seen it done before. I've already printed out menus for the adult meals and now I'm printing the menu on the stickers.

I hope they'll like it!

Here is the sticker design:

I'll take a picture of the place card with it once the stickers have arrived...
