No-Brainer

























































It's my dear Mama's birthday today and we spent the better part of the afternoon cooking up a birthday supper. Happy birthday Ma! I'd like to list down the hundreds or so reasons why my mother is the best but words elude me. It happens when there's something awesome I want to say but I end up choking it all up. I know this wouldn't suffice but we at home love you so much!

After eating, I'm not feeling so swell so I hit the couch and took off to Winterfell where I'm still grappling with the first book of the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series. And then I remembered we took  outfit shots yesterday and I forgot to post it. meh. So here it is - one of my no-brainer outfits. The kind of outfit I wear when I want to preserve a semblance of stylishness without baring too much skin. The kind of outfit that makes people wonder if I'm going to give them envelopes and ask for Church donations. I suppose it was the creepers that saved the outfit from looking too Sunday mass-esque.

So Christmas and New Year is looming before us. I did me some Christmas gift shopping for my family that virtually rendered me a pauper. I kept on consoling myself that it's really better to give than to receive this Christmas. That didn't stop me from relishing the idea of receiving a brand new bicycle soon though. Advanced thanks to the boyfriend! 

This year, I decided not to make a New Year's resolution list. The past few years taught me that my brain isn't cut at remembering resolutions, let alone, at keeping them. But I decided to keep one resolution in mind: "to say yes more often". 

Now before you start knocking on my front door, asking to borrow money, in the hopes that I say "yes" without batting an eyelash, I'd like to qualify. I'm going to say "yes" to new experiences, to trying out new hobbies, to conquering my fears, to testing different waters, to meeting new people and friends and to pretty much anything that will give me more substance. 

I suppose this is the perfect resolution for me. Easy to forge in my brain. No superb attention span needed. 

So guys, have you done your Christmas shopping already? Made your New Year's resolution?
