Dog Bed

I wanted to make a bed for our pet shih-tzu.  He's our little darling and he deserves something better than lying on a piece of rag.  I saw this DIY dog bed made from a broken wooden chair.  See how elegant it is now? :)

It was made possible by adding few adjustments to the feet of the chair and adding a cushion which serves as the mattress for the bed.  Really awesome!

I wonder what our pet Marcus would feel after we are able to make one for him. :)

It's a Reunion!

One more month to go and we will be complete again as a family.  Hubby is taking his home leave soon and we are all excited to see him again.  This time, it will be more fun as we don;t have limited time to spend together.  As you may all know, I've already resigned from my job and now staying at home for good.  I know it's still too early for a retirement but I've decided  to stay and work from home.  I've never been in this situation for so many years. In fact, this is my first time to stop working as I'm gainfully employed since I was single and just a year after I graduated from college.  I'm not totally idle though as I am still working from home.  The only difference is that I can now attend to the needs of every member of the family.  

Hubby is also excited to be home once again.  He told me that he had already bought a lot of "pasalubong's" for us and he's a bit worried that he may exceed his baggage allowance.  I was lucky to have a husband who loves to bring home "pasalubongs".  He never brings home lee oskar diatonic harmonica from guitar center though, usually it's more of foods and personal stuff.  It semed like a fiesta every time he's home that's why everyone in the family is so excited to see him again. Aside form the fact that he loves to cook and eat, he is a person with a positive disposition, too. 

We are looking forward to summer as this will be a great opportunity for us to bond and be together as a family.

Summer Hair Styles

I'm getting bored with my hair now and I am thinking of getting a new hair style!  On our way to spa this afternoon, I told my daughter that I wanted to have a new look this summer.  I am sporting the same hair style for more than a year now and I suddenly felt that I want something new this time.  So here I am, looking for some hair styles that would suit the shape of my face.  I often have a layered cut ever since except when I was a teen as I used to have a long straight hair then.  Since it's going to be summer, I am thinking of getting a shorter cut but not too short as I am having a round face and I just don't want to look fat.  I am having a slim figure but my face is big and I don't want to emphasize it.

Below are some of the hair cuts that caught my attention.  I find these cuts kind of cute and modern. perhaps, easy to manage, too.

Which one will I choose?  Well, that needs to be decided, soon!

How about you? Would dare to get a short hair cut this summer?

What Hotels in Your Vacationing Spot Offer

If you are traveling far and need a great place to rest or enjoy your vacation, hotels in Houston, MO, can provide you with all of the amenities that you are looking for, especially ones to help you relax and to enjoy your stay.

Take a Load Off

Making sure that your hotel has everything that you desire while you are vacationing is very important and a must. You do not want to be stuck somewhere that doesn’t have a shoe-buffing service or a spa when you need it most. It is critical that you determine what accommodations are vital before your trip and then choose a hotel based on your needs. Most cities around the world are equipped to accommodate your needs and will provide more than one hotel as an option for you. If you are traveling with family, swimming, spa, and child-friendly services are probably on the very top of your list. These activities will give your family something to do, especially if you are stuck in a business meeting or work-related venture.

A Friendly Atmosphere

If you know that during your visit you will be busy, but will end the day feeling tired and sleepy, a comfortable room equipped with a nice bathtub or a fluffy bed is just what you need. If entertainment is also a priority to you and your family, a large television with several channels for everyone can come in handy on a night that everyone just wants to relax and take a break. Housekeeping services and laundering your clothing may be something that you must do while on your visit. Some hotels do not give you this option, so remember to make sure that the one you choose is fully stocked with washers and dryers. Choose a hotel that will be convenient to where you will be during the day or night. If you are in town for a meeting and flew in and do not want to rent a car, walking to your destination can be a great way to enjoy the sights, as long as your hotel is close by.

Choose a Hotel

You can plan your vacation and prepare for it well by conducting research on hotels in Houston, MO, before you arrive. This will ensure you have a great visit, whether you are in town for business or pleasure with your family or by yourself.
