I love stamps!!

I absolutely love stamps. 

Yup, postage stamps. 
When I was younger, I would always ask my parents to buy me the cool Disney stamps, and one of my absolutely favorites.....Lucille Ball. 

I would use about half on the sheet, but now I know not to do that. Lol. 

I went to the post office today because a postal worker had told me last month that a new stamp for Chinese New Year was coming out towards the end of the month. I was excited to see that they had it because new ones go fast.

They postal worker and I started chatting it up about collecting stamps and he showed me a catalog of the new ones coming out this year (the people in line probably thought we were crazy). I love sending and receiving snail mail and want to put the cooler looking stamps on them (I know, major nerd). 

When I got home, I went on the USPS website to see what was coming out this year and when. Here are a few of the ones that I'm super excited about and will have to get:

Release date: February 10th.

This one is just so cool looking. This one didn't say the release date, so it might be sold online only.

I absolutely loved him in "To Kill a Mockingbird." What an awesome actor. Release date: April 28th.

These are so cute. They remind me of my pledge sis Lehua for some reason. Release date: May 19th.

I think I'm gonna have to get 2 sheets of these. Love it!! Release date: August 19th. 

So excited for these stamps!!!!

Holidays 2010

I know I'm a few weeks late, but wanted to blog about it anyhow. :)

My family and I celebrated Christmas at my aunt and uncle's house the eve of every year and I absolutely love it. They ordered amazing Filipino food and I was so stuffed. I love spending time with the family.

There's a block of houses a block away from my house that go all out for Christmas with their decorations. Since we've lived there, I've noticed that each year there are more and more houses with decorations. I think they're battling it out. Lol. The week of Christmas was full of rain so I was sad that we couldn't see all the cool decorations. Luckily no one took them down until a week after. They were all just amazing.

This one was Rudy's favorite.

This one was my favorite. I think especially because of the gingerbread house. AND it had Christmas music playing. I loved it! Rudy's had music playing, but I still liked this one better. 

These were the AWESOME presents Rudy got me. I absolutely loved these cartoons when I was younger. They don't make them like they used to. So awesome. :)

 Happy 2011 everybody!!

2.Share 7 things about yourself.
3.Award 15 other bloggers.
4.Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award.

7 things about me....

1.  I absolutely LOVE teaching. Love it till no end. I have wanted to become a teacher since I was in 4th grade and have never looked back. I can't wait until the day comes when I am back in the classroom. It breaks my heart that I don't have one now, but am trying my best not to think about it and knows this is how it is for now. I think kindergarten is the grade for me. The little kiddies have won my heart over. :)

2.  I cannot swim to save my life..not even float. My college roommates tried to teach me once, but I just kept freaking out and sinking. Yes....I know.

3.  I don't buy anything at full price unless I absolutely have to (like a present or last minute item I need). I like to get more for my money and getting it for a discount/on sale is even better!

4.  I cannot eat spicy foods. No way, no how.

5.  When I was younger, I was a HUGE fan of the Backstreet Boys. Like HARDCORE. I collected everything they had....stickers, books, posters, stationary, you name it. When I moved, I looked through all my stuff and saw one of those Burger King soda cups I had saved that had them on it when they had a promotion. I bought all the teeny bopper magazines with their posters in them. My favorite was Nick. I still love their music. And I will admit, when I found out they were going to be on "Oprah," I was excited. Lol, don't judge me. 

6.  I enjoy baking/cooking when I can, but for some reason, after it's done, I don't really care to eat it. I'm not sure why. My mom's like that, too, so I probably got that from her.

 7.  I love breakfast foods. I can eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, brunch, linner..anytime. It's my absolute favorite. 

Instead of 15, I will be awarding 8 people whose blogs I really enjoy reading and are more personal. So here we go:
