Ruthilicious at 49

It's hard to believe that I turned 49 yesterday. Or is it?
Forty Nine years and it feels like nothing has changed. I am still the same crazy person I used to be. No more, no less. Errr.... maybe a little bit more. LOL

It's Girls Scout Cookie Time!

I don't know about you but I love my Girl Scout cookies.

And when I get them... they don't stand a chance. They get eaten right away and without remorse. LOL

Baby Brother in the House!

My baby brother came to visit me here in Maine. It was a very short visit but it was one of the most memorable times I had with him.

For a span of 10 days we were able to bond and enjoy each others' company without interruption. It was a short visit but not short in happy memories that we created together for just 10 days.

Here are some of the photos we had together.

A bag-full of sweet memories!

My brother's short visit in Maine is a huge deal. First of all because the last time I spent time with him was in 2012 when I had a short vacation in the Philippines. Now, it's payback time!
But a visit is not a visit without a catch. Yes, there is a catch. We are horrible family so we don't do favor just because! We do favor out of another favor! LOL I'm just kidding. Whose family isn't horrible anyway? Wink** So yes, after some threatening and blackmailing he finally brought me those Pinoy food that I was longing for so long.

A bag-full of happy memories

Before my brother came here for a short vacation, we had a lot of emails and online chats exchange. It was a process that Pinoy (Filipino) travelers go through when they are going to visit a family member abroad. Let me explain this further. When a Pinoy is going to travel abroad it is expected to meet up with some Pinoy family and friends alike. And this calls for "pasalubong" (presents from home). So I emailed him a list of the things I want him to bring to me when he comes here. They are mostly Pinoy food that I miss so much and are not available in the stores here.
And he did just that. When he came, he did not only bring with him my most-requested food from home that I miss so much but a whole bag of happy memories from the past.

I made a sale!

Remember the Happy Snowmen Fun Math Activties that I made for my TPT store? I finally made a sale! How wonderful is that?
It really felt good that someone really bought my product. Now, I am so fired up. I need more snow days to come up with new stuff. LOL

It's just a click away for a Magical Prom Night

One of the most memorable if not the most awaited events in High School is the Prom. It's a phase that everyone has to go through unless you are home-schooled or out-of-school or a non-believer (wink*). Whatever the case maybe, Prom night is a magical night for most teenagers across the world.

Speaking of Prom... I didn't have one. Well, technically I did. But the Prom that I've been to was not the typical one. Don't asked me when it happened. We will be talking Math here and I'm not an expert. The only thing I remember is - the whole class was wearing our First Friday Gala Uniform. Yes, the special uniform we wore when we attend the mandatory Mass services. (I was enrolled in a Catholic School ran by over-conservative Nuns)
