i sadly didn’t get around to taking any photos this weekend, but it was a good one!
both husband and i miss our mommies very much, but am glad to have friends and family to celebrate with!
i hope all the mommy’s out there had a wonderful mother’s day this weekend!
this weekend i chopped off 12″ of hair for locks of love!
i love my long hair, but it was beginning to feel like a bit much. my hair felt heavy and hot and i needed a change. the inspiration photo above also helped convince friends maybe a new do wasn’t such a bad idea. after a few supportive “do it!!” encouragements, i made my appointment. but that didn’t mean i wasn’t nervous or all sorts of doubtful! would i look as chic and sexy as the model? or end up looking like a twelve year old? (very valid concern btw) but when i met wesley (my go to hair guy) saturday morning, he assured me it would be just fine and for a good cause too! so i closed my eyes and within a second — 12″ was gone!
[my before and after shot]
my hair doesn’t quite look like the inspiration photo, but i can’t say i’m unhappy with it! now time to grow it back out!
..here’s to changes and new beginnings!

challenge 2: name something you are good at
what am i good at?
… wanting what i can’t have.
this week? x-base stools that cost way too much.
i’ve been a bad little blogger lately, so i decided to join story of my life in the blog every day in may challenge! i mean, there’s topics and everything! i may not follow all of the topics, but i’ll be sure to post at least one post a day!
challenge 1: the story of your life in 250 words or less
i was born 30 years ago in houston, texas to two chinese (from taiwan) immigrant parents. i was the youngest of three kids, but i felt like an only child as my brothers were 9 and 13 years older than me! my grandparents babysat me while my parents worked, so mandarin chinese was my very first language. i spent a year in esl (what, that happened?!), made friends, and promptly forgot most of my chinese (sad).
my favorite things growing up were art and dance. i dreamt of becoming a ballerina, but as it turns out i wasn’t very good. so instead i went to college and obtained a bachelors in both psychology and economics. still lost and confused, i found an internship where i got to play around designing marketing materials. that was fun.
my first job out of college was designing home accessories and a mail order catalog. i got a better offer a couple of months later and gave up a pretty awesome job for higher pay and better opportunities (or so my brother convinced me. i partially still wish i were designing home accessories!)
i worked and played in my hometown for the next four years before meeting my best bud and now husband. together, we explored our town and traveled all about! and now here we are — settling in as a new married couple, furnishing our first apartment and looking for our first home. 2013 should be fun!
