"how do you...?" series


            Today I was chatting with mom about States and how my nieces used to make Tiramisu (one of my fav cake ever - easy to make, awesome at taste... perfect!) and suddenly, I realized how much I miss 'em. Ok, not only those in States... my bro' in Spain, my sis in UK, and even my sisters from here. I am so happy almost all of them could come at our wedding, I feel I'm so lucky, and now I wish I would've ask for more help from them. Well... nobody's perfect, so... next time, when I'll need help I'll just ask. 
            So, how do you handle missing someone?... I feel lonely, and I remember all kind of stuff about that person, smile and tear in the same time, and practicly I am good at nothing. Usually, I like missing someone, I mean I like the part when I read letters and look at things that remind me of them, but I hate the sad part of it... I don't really do anything major when it(the miss feeling) hits me, I just lay in bed and ... "enjoy" the feeling..
            On the other hand, this crochet idea becomes more and more addictive. I find myself wanting to do more and more interesting things with my crochet-hook. It's crazy! When I was in school, I had a hard time with that and I remember so clear in the first years of school how patiently my teacher tried so hard to learn me how to do it... Don't you find that odd?.. or maybe not... Ok, I'll stop rambling and go see what's to do till Hubby comes home... can't wait for that! Btw, did I tell you I made mashed potatoes? My mashed potatoes.. it's a secret recipe and everyone just loves it. I'm so glad, cause I was so nervous about that...
Enjoy autumn with its melancholy...

just a little progress..

           So, that's just a glimpse of our home... my sisters kept asking me for pictures but I didn't really had the chance to upload 'em on facebook... it's just a little corner... in our living ...
           Now, talking serious stuff.. I started the scarf... and what can I say?.. Crochet can be pretty addicting. I'm so curious how it's gonna look in the end... of course, I made some mistakes, but hey, it's the first time in my life when I crochet more than just a chain... if you get me :). Maybe I'll take some pictures tomorrow..
          On the other hand, I'm so done with long hair. In case you don't know me, I've never had longer hair then my shoulder-lenght. I always wanted to have long hair on my wedding day, and I had it, but now I just wanna cut it off. It's too long and I don't have enough time for it... Soon I'll get a new haircut... and I'm sure I'ma love it! ...
smile and remember you are loved!

new feelings and a project

             I guess this happens with every girl when she gets married... Suddenly, I stop thinking only about myself, now, my thoughts look like "how Mr. Hubby would like that?". So, because out of nowhere there is someone else that matters more than me, yesterday I made apple pie for him. Well, for everybody... and mom helped me. Another little thing I forgot to mention: I got two moms now, and we live next door with Hubby's parents. Hubby loved 'em. :)
              On another hand, I started a project and I intend to finish it. It should take couple of days, but I won't be surprised if it's gonna be longer than one week... so, because I wanted to make sure I'ma finish it I thought it would be fun to show you my idea and then the progress... I want to do this because I'm so good at getting excited when beginning something and then, my excitement is just gone and the project is forgotten. It is time to make some major changes. So, this is what I want to make. I found the picture and a tutorial on the internet, I fell in love with it and I said: "Hey, I can do that! I can start learning how to really crochet this thing." In the end, I'll have something to be proud to wear...  

This is what I start with... I'll keep you tuned..
wish me luck!!! :)

"how do you..?" series

                 Because sometimes I feel like I'm the only person who experience unusual normal things, and because I know everyone can feel like what happens to her/him never happened to anybody before, I will start the "how do you .. " series. I will try o find interesting moments when I think "I bet nobody has ever gone through this before!" and talk about them.
                So, how do you take criticism? I can honestly say I am the clumsiest person I've ever known. Really. Like, I wanna pour milk in a bowl, and half of it is on the counter. (ok, that might be a little bit exaggerated) In the same time, I don't feel good when somebody criticizes me. Usually, I get frustrated and either I talk back or I just shut up and my whole day is ruined. I know it sounds like a childish act and I try hard to get rid of it, but sometimes it's harder than I think. I'm always careful what I do or say or whatever, to avoid the critics. I realize this is not the way to treat it and won't get anywhere if I keep it like that. So, next time when I'll hear "Honey, why did you do this?" or "You shouldn't do it like that!" or "How did you do this?" I will take a deep breath and try to be more receptive. Not get angry and tell myself 'See how clumsy you can be?', but tell myself 'Nobody's perfect. Next time you'll do it better'.
umm.. it's 1:50 in the morning, I guess that's it for now.. I'm curious to find out what you think of this. Have a good night, everyone!


               Like always, I have something to share with you.  Unusual it's what I have to share. But, believe me, it's a win-win situation here, and I'm more than excited. Recently, I was asked to post a few words about an online retailer. It sounded pretty interesting, so I checked out their site ASAP. And instantly, I almost fell in love. Like every other woman, I love shopping. Accessible prices? That's a dream come true! You can find absolutely anything there, from Bathroom Vanities to Golf equipment and digital cameras at a nice deal. Thinking to propose to your girlfriend? I saw lots of sweet engagement rings. I had a hard time choosing what I loved most, but I think the cutest were the handmade jewelry.
               Here comes the sweetest part: they gave me a discount code, and the shipping is just $3 on any order. The code is 121728 and is good for 10% off all overstock.com products.
              Enjoy shopping!!!
All the ideas and opinions expressed are my own. No monetary compensation was received for doing this post, however, I was provided with a discount code.

Coming Back Home?...

            In case you are wondering, I have 3 homes. At least, it feels like it. Last week I visited one of them. I've been in a short visit to my hometown, Craiova. It's not a really spectacular city, but the park is awesome. My fav part of it is the huge lake with little island, and the suspended bridge, and the spectacular trees, and the uncountable small falls, and the flowers, and the animals, and the small castle, oh the old house... everything! So, as I said, we've been there. Me and husband. I don't know how to say it, but it was weird. Really. Didn't feel like home again. I felt like a stranger. Too many changes, too different. The apartment looked empty, even though I just looked at the building. It was kinda sad. Friends were inexistent. Did I miss the feeling or it was supposed to feel just like another visitor? A visitor with billions memories. I don't know if I wanna go back there. I don't think I belong there anymore. Maybe this is the way should be. It was my home. Now, is just a memory. Still, I will always call it my home. I wouldn't want to live there anymore, but I will always cherish those years. I will miss 'em, and remember 'em as much as I can.
            Here's a lesson I know, but always forget: live the present. Don't steal its value because you can't stop thinking about the past, or planning your future. 
            I've been home. But I was more than happy to come back to my new home. Now, I know. My home, is where Eddie is.

I like

         I like the way husband takes care of me when I'm sick.
         I like how he feeds me and starts the fire in the stove so we can have a warm house.
         ... and the fact that I stayed in bed almost all day.
         I like it when he comes from work and the first thing he does is to kiss me. Not even say "Hi", just a kiss. It just makes my day.
        I like to listen to French music. French sounds way too sexy for me!
        The point is, I love my life right now. I'd change couple of things here and there, but hey, it wouldn't be exciting if everything was perfect. I'm trying to change the things that have to be changed, and I know I can do it, but it takes time.
       Yesterday I saw a movie. Some guy said time is important, not money. I guess he's right and I'ma start think at that more often.
       I'm off. Husband-wife time!!!

Lovely Day

                 It is so wonderful outside, I'd go and walk around town, take pictures, smile at people, enjoy the sun as long as I can. Unfortunately, I'm in bed, sick. With a cup of hot tea and lots of tissues around me. Hopefully, today I'll feel better.
  Oh, I almost forgot...
   Happy Birthday,

Am I Back??

      Well, the question should be: "Am I ready to be back?"... Honestly?!.. Nope, not really... not at all. The honeymoon was a blast! Oh, yeah... We've had a great time, starting with the weather and ending with the time we had for ourselves. Me personally, I enjoyed every single second of it. I'll post some day, some interesting pictures.. some day! What a word.. it's funny and cool in the same time to have your place. Especially sharing it with the one you love. But there are ups and downs... now I'm home alone, it's 1:00 am, and even though I'm really tired, it's pretty impossible to fall asleep.. Eddie's working... taking pics at weddings. It's so quiet in here, and ... I feel incomplete. 
     Oh, by the way... if you click on the picture, you can see some of the pictures from the wedding..
