10 things about me.

I have gotten into 2 car accidents, got sued on both of them but didnt follow through because they were being greedy and lied about having back aches.

Growing up, I hated the shape of my eyes because people would always make fun of how small it is. Felt really inseure and I would wear a lot of eye makeup to hide it, but now I use makeup to enhance and embrace it.

I didn't smile with teeth until my early 20s because I thought I look awkward and cheesy when I smile with teeth :D

I have always had long hair, but last year I wanted something different. I told my friend to cut it shorter then normal but she went a little cutting happy and chopped off 10 inches of my hair! I cried and was depressed because I hated it. 6 months straight, I had my hair up in a pony tail and had to buy hair extensions.

I was born in Vietnam and our family moved to cold South Dakota when I was 9. I am currently in Virginia with my husband, baby and 3 dogs.

I am not afraid of spiders but worms scare the heck out of me.

{Interior Design by Candace Olsonvia}
I got interested in interior design because of Candace Olson. All the rooms she designed are fresh, clean and amazingly beautiful. If I was a rich girl, I would hire her to design my house!

Purple use to be my favorite color when I was young until my parents told me that purple is the color of sadness in the Vietnamese culture and didn't allow me to decorate my room with purple.

Number 9 hold a special place in my heart. I met my hubby in the month of September, both of our birthdays are in September and we got married on 09-09-09 (reception 09-12) I delivered Kaylee room 9 and we got to the hospital at 9am.

I often have a hard time expressing myself in words and I don't normally share too much personal stuff about myself (except sharing lots and lots of photos of baby girl) hope you enjoy reading this and know a little bit more about me

15 sweet notes

  1. LOVED reading these ten things about you:) I have also had months of keeping my hair in a ponytail due to a bad haircut;)

    Thanks for tagging me! Flattered!!
    Have an awesome weekend!

  2. How fun! I hate bad haircuts and I love your dress in the first picture!

  3. I love reading facts about my favorite mysterious bloggers like yourself who rarely say personal things. That makes you a mysterious lady!

    Number one is insane, people sue for the sake of suing. Glad you didn't have to involve in such messes. Small eyes are sexy ;) I like you with short hair though, you look very edgy and it suits your face. If my hair was like that, scary! Purple is a widow's color in my culture.

    Thanks girl for passing on an award, I graciously accepted with humbleness. I think I have shared (a.k.a exposed) myself way more than people care to know :D

  4. Congrats on the award! Fun 10 facts ... so glad that you smile today, teeth and all ... you are BEAUTIFUL!!!!

    Happy weekend, sweets :)

  11. i'm quite honored that you passed on the stylish blogger award to me. honestly, i don't know if i can actually fit the category of stylish...i'm so plain jane and very simple. however, with two teen daughters they have a lot of say in my wardrobe and normally gives me the thumbs up or down! anyhoo, thanks so much and i will probably work on passing this award forward in the next couple of weeks. lots to do before we leave for our family summer vacay.

  14. you look absolutely stunning darling! great post :)


  15. I think you look cute with short hair. I used to have short hair myself but if I ever think twice cutting off all my hair now I would cry. I love this post so glad I now know a few things about you. I can't believe about Number 9that is some outcome on how you two met and how everything else fell into place with your wedding and baby. I hope you have a great day.
