Voodoo Doughnut too!

Happy Memorial day! Hubby and his family were off today except for me however I still manage to hang out with them. In fact, we went to Voodoo doughnut again and guess what? It was more busier than the last time we went there. The store was actually packed and as you can see in the photo below, people  who are waiting in line were already outside the door.

I took this picture after we bought and waited for more than an hour and the store still packed.

At Voodoo Doughnut

We had our day off yesterday and hubby, myself and our friends went to Voodoo Doughnuts. Just in case you guys don't know, it is a doughnut shop which is popular in the city of Portland. It is well-known for its unusual donuts, uncommon decoration of its shop and its pink boxes which feature the company's logo and drawings of voodoo priests. The shop was featured to a lot of television shows like Anthony Bourdain: No Reservation, Man Vs Food. Doughnut Paradise, etc. I considered this as one of Portland's tourist attraction for its uniqueness. And if you are in love with someone and wanted to get married, they also offer legal wedding services inside the shop. Complete with doughnuts and coffee for the reception...lol.

Happy Mother's day!

Today is mother's day and I would like to acknowledge the two mothers in my life.  One of my most important person for me is my mama. She's the one who gave us unconditional love and care. She's very unselfish and kind. If there is only 4 pieces of bread for five people, she will give us one of each and doesn't care about herself. I am a mama's girl every time I get sick. I love to have my mother beside me. Her mother's love and care will make me feel better even if she's not a doctor. She is very supportive and  I would like to Thank her for making me who I am right now.  For bringing us into this world and raised us with good manners. A word thank you is not enough to what she have been done to all of us siblings.

When I moved here in the US, one thing that I'm worried of is not to be with my family especially my mama with me.  However, I am so Blessed that God gave me the greatest people in my life. He gave me a second mother and that is my mother-in-law. She is the most nicest person I know ever! She treat me like her own biological daughter. She's one of those person that I feel comfortable talking and sharing with. She's not also a mother but I consider her as one of my best friend and sister ;). She's one of those people that is really helpful to me as part of my adjustments to my new country.

Happy mother's day to my two special moms! I'm so Blessed that I have a two great mothers. I wanna be like them when the time I have my own kids.  And  to my sister, sister-in-law, granmas, and to all moms, mama, mommy, mamu, Inay, mothers, nanays, around the world...Happy mother's day...mwah!

Mother's day cards

My friend came over and stayed for hours in our place. We were so excited to see each other again and spend some "girl time bonding". Cooking, eating and have our nails done. Then we also made a card for our own mother-in-law since tomorrow is Mother's day. Below are the cards that we both made. Show some love on mother's day. Enjoy!
