my mommy

The song "I'm a Woman" by Peggy Lee describes my mom PERFECTLY!

"I can rub & scrub this old house til it's shinin like a dime
Feed the baby, grease the car, & powder my face at the same time
Get all dressed up, go out and swing til 4 a.m. and then
Lay down at 5, jump up at 6, and start all over again "

Growing up, she was my go-to person for everything! She worked, went to school, served at the church, made each meal for us, and still had time to iron each piece of clothing, clean up after us, and go to all our school functions. She'd go to bed after we do, then wake up at 5am for morning prayer. She did it all! My dad isn't very handy, so she is our go-to person for that too! Her favorite store is Home Depot, she has her own tool box, and seriously she's got mad skills!

She's like any other Asian mom. She shows her love by nagging and making sure I am well fed. I know everyone says, "My mom is the best cook" but seriously, my mom is the best cook.


My mom rocks. She went back to school and finally graduated from college at the age of 53! She wasn't done after that! She decided to enroll in some classes to get her masters. It just so happens to be the same school as Johnny! They would run into each other on campus. How cute is that.

Happy Mother's Day to my amazing mom!


  1. This made me laugh so hard! This is so my mother! Oh Asian mothers, they are amazing and seriously rock the house!

  2. now i'm craving your mom's spaghetti...

  3. Love this post on your mom! And I'm so jealous you grew up with sisters. You guys are all adorable. Your mom is a rock star and I'm so impressed she went back to school and finished her degree, moreover, is pursuing a masters. I hope to have her energy and resilience when I'm her age.

  4. I love your mom. No, seriously, I love your mom. :)
