i was given permission to explode.



remember the secret i mentioned last week?! this is it, good people. and do pardon me and my family's lack of prep for this video (we were totally caught off guard - towels, wet hair, no make-up, etc) and the burst of emotional reactions that we women in this family (um, especially me) tend to display when we are at the height of our emotions. dont' say i didn't warn you. i look hideous when i cry.

note: skype coversation is between my family and my sister + her hubby in Iowa. 'lolo' and 'lola' are very special tagalog words to my parents. *wink*

much love.
{happy thursday, friend.}
