Brilliant Blogger (or Slacker in my Case) Award

Both Gen (Our Fantastic Journey) and Jamie (My Heart is in Kyrgyzstan) gave me an award for Blog Excellence. I am ashamed to admit I haven't even finished my post from our last week in Kyrgyzstan but I will gracefully take the award anyway just so that I can procrastinate some more. Now I can work on this post instead of the catch up one that I have been meaning to finish.

With this award, I am supposed to answer these questions and nominate 7 more people of their Blog Excellence. Here goes...

A. Attached or single? Attached

B. Best friend? my husband, Bill

D. Day of choice? Saturday

E. Essential item? Dylan's snack bag

F. Favorite color? Black. It goes with everything

G. Gummy bears or worms? Chocolate covered gummy bears

H. Hometown? Born in the Philippines, raised in Los Angeles, established homestead in the San Francisco Bay Area

Lastly, here is a photo of Dylan in his Cubs outfit that he wore to Grandpa's memorial service in Illinois last week. Grandpa was a huge Cubs fan so Auntie Kelly and Auntie Kay spent some time shopping for the little guy before we got there. He now has this outfit, a jersey, T-shirt and shorts ensemble and a windbreaker, all with Cubs logos on them. Nope, neither Kelly or Mary Kay got carried away whatsoever.
