I hate computers, especially mine

So.... we upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7 and I think I lost everything. Pictures, essays, writing, work, bookmarks from the internet.

How to cook seaweed soup (miyeok guk 미역국) redux

So, I went to the local Vietnamese store to look for the seaweed for miyeok guk 미역국, but I didn't find it there. Then last weekend I went to the Korean store in Sparks, NV, Yim's Asian Supermarket. I found the seaweed there and took some pictures with my cell phone, sorry, but they are low quality.

This is the seaweed in Korean, and written in Romanized from the Japanese pronunciation, ito-wakame.

And I believe the black writing here in the center is the Japanese name of the seaweed, I am not 100% sure, so if anyone can read it please let me know.

Updating the windows

It may finally be spring here. I say may, because it hailed last Wednesday. :(

So here is what our first window used to look like.

There are snowflake clings from Wal-Mart, and kirigami leaf decorations. The idea for the leaves came from Zakka Life, I used origami paper.

Here is the second window.

On top we have shape and color clings from Dollar Tree. And on the bottom is an tree idea from Frugal Family Fun Blog that can be found here.

We are currently doing some crafts to update our windows, so hopefully I'll be posting some more pictures soon.

Tracing Lines

I often get a lot of people finding my blog by searching for tracing lines.

So I will now redirect you to, more specifically their handwriting section. They have a great beginning manuscript section.

I hope that helps everyone that needs trace lines.

EDIT: I found another great website for tracing lines, this one allows you to type in your own words, you can also type in words to be traced in cursive.
