Kuro Goes to Day Care

Kuro doesn't like other dogs. //sigh He's been like this since we first got him. The vets think that (since his first stop at doggy day care in South Windsor back in 2010 and doggy parks don't work that well) he might be scarred from his one wild week in concrete jungle, or just doesn't like other dogs.

Well, I don't like either answers. Cristhian and I have set Kuro up for another doggy day care appointment tomorrow morning. We're hoping that with the forced interaction will at least make him more civil (less barking) when near other dogs.

Healthy Household?

Basically, all my boys are overweight. //wompwomp Cristhian and I are taking steps to ensure a healthier, brighter future.

What are we doing? For one thing, we're forcing Kuro to walk at least 1.5, if not more, miles every day. Zorro and Otie are a different story. We've bought some toys they can use to run around the apartment (it's been working)! For Cristhian and myself, we've been drinking green juices at least twice a day.. gotta get these veggies in me somehow! Also, we've been going to the gym 3-5x a week, cutting out the sugar (me) and resisting greasy foods (him).


What are you doing to become active?

Mommy remembers when she first laid eyes on you (and your seven sisters)! It was love at first sight.

(That pic is NOT Zorro... just his super secret twin!)

Zozo, Oats and Chubos Update!

Woe is Kuro. He's had a rough four weeks. In March, he got three vaccinations (rabies, distemper, bordatella) and today, he gave fecal and blood samples as well canine influenza vaccine (he'll get his booster in May). He wailed so ferociously when the vet techs grazed over his paws.. it was horrible, but I do know that he cries without reason.




In a couple of days, Zorro will be getting his check-up and consult (in regards to his plastic addiction). Cristhian and I have had some trouble with him lately. He's been eating plastic and has been constantly throwing up for the past two days. Yesterday, he refused to eat outright and Cristhian and I were quite worried.) Hopefully the vet will be able to give us some insight on what we should do with him.


Otie is less worrisome. There's seldom anything wrong with him. He'll just get a regular ol' check-up.

Happy Birthday!

Cristhian turns 29 today!


I was 19 and Cristhian was 23 here!

My big baby is almost 30.. boo! I'm working this weekend, so we're not doing anything spectacular (I'm saving that for next year!). We're having dinner at Taqueria Tavern and later that night, Cristhian's siblings will come over. It's going to be a good time!

What was his birthday gift? Well, he got a Breville juicer. Yeah. A Breville.

This is a chill birthday year for us both!

Get To Know Me: Beauty Blogger Tag!

I've been out of the Bloggersphere for a couple of months now... (Sorry, again, guys.) I really enjoyed tags- especially in high school! When I saw this fun tag from Emily from Beauty Broadcast, I knew a tag would be the best way to get my foot back in!

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
My hair is naturally wavy.. but over the years, I've been training it to become more straight. So, now it's straight with a slight wave.

2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I get my hair done at the salon (by my lovely future sissy-in-law) where the only added touch I get is a half head of highlights that are dark brown since my hair's base is my natural color (dark, dark brown/grey-black).

3. Do you wear the same style everyday, or do you change it?
On days 1-2, my hair is blowed out straight and on days 3-4, my hair is usually curled (to keep it from looking unkempt and limp).

4. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
For special occasions, I go to salons (25% of the time), but oftentimes I paint my nails myself!

5. How often do you change your nail polish?
I have to change my polish at least twice a week due to chipping. I'm looking to gel systems in order to have my polish last longer!

6. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer?
I change my toes' polish just as often as I do my hands'!

7. How long does it take for you to put on makeup?
Technically, it takes me less than 10 minutes to put my face together, but I prefer to take my time!

8. What do you do first? Face or eyes?
On a regular day, I do my face first because my eye makeup is usually very light. If I'm doing a smokey nighttime look, I'll do my eyes first.

9. Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
I buy what I need!

10. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
I only wear them for special occasions or when I'm trying out a new style (of lashes).

11. Do you do a full face of makeup everyday?
Usually it's a medium-ish face.

12. Do you wear makeup when you're home alone or with family?
Yesss! I don't like feeling pale.. I at least need a tinted moisturizer.

13. Will you leave the house without makeup?
Yes, but I seldom often do it. Daily, I'm at least wearing tinted moisturizer/powder/concealer/brows/mascara.

14. How many high-end products do you have?
I think I have an equal amount of drugstore vs high end..

15. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you're getting dressed?
I grab as I go!

16. How often do you change your handbag?
Maybe once or twice every few months.. I need a new bag!

17. What time do you wake up and go to sleep?
I wake up around 6-7am and go to bed

18. How often or when do you workout?
Cristhian and I are trying to get back into working out.. Right now we're doing light videos at home and walking at least 3 miles a day. Post-surgery, we're hoping to back to working out 4x a week.

19. Left handed or right handed?
Right.

20. How tall are you?
5'0"

21. Do you speak any foreign languages?
Of the languages I speak/understand, my grasp of the English language is best, followed by Cambodian and French.

22. How many pets do you have?
Zorro and Otie are our two kitties and Kuro is our pup!

23. How often are you on Blogger?
Right now, it feels like never! I've been making more of an effort as late though.

24. Do you read comments posted on blogs?
I don't tend to read comments on blogs.. D:

25. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
I like to keep a mental list of things to try or find reviews of!

26. How did you come up with your blog name?
I'm a prissy New Englander.. ! 'Nough said!

27. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?
I use a Sony Cyber-Shot WX-150!

28. How often do you clean your house?
I've learned that cleaning the whole thing all at once is too much work. So I have different parts of the house that get cleaned on different days throughout the week. So the whole thing is cleaned pretty much weekly, with clutter straightened up as-needed. - Me, too!

29. What's your favorite color?
Pink!

30. Do you swear?
Seldom. Really.

31. What are you doing with the rest of your day?
I'm working on writing blog posts!! I'm trying to find material for amusement!


I tag you!

Boston Marathon Bombing

My roots were bred and grown in Massachusetts, just 30 minutes north of Boston actually. I won't go into what happened, but I wanted to give some sort of post in regards to the bombing at the Marathon.

Why, hello there!

... Why, hello there. It's been nutty, as you all well know. March isn't a good month for my immediate family, plus I've been swamped with exams. Sorry I haven't been "officially" writing anything for months.

Some awesome things to look forward to in the next four weeks are:
  • It's Khmer New Year this upcoming weekend!
  • Shawn, Leeda, Cristhian and I are off to NYC
  • Cristhian's 29th Birthday is around the corner
  • My 7-Year Dating Anniversary is less than a month away
I'm excited for the awesome things about to come into form this year. There's A LOT to look for and I'm stoked to see every one soon! The Year of the Snake will be an amazing year for this Rat/Dragon duo!
