We were all laughing yesterday morning because my son was walking around with my shoes.... with 2 inch heels hehehe.. He was good at it too. Kids are so funny that they always want to try using our stuff. My daughter does that too with my other blouse, if she likes a certain clothes, she would wear it lol.. Here are the pictures of our son, walking around the house with my shoes on.
The last picture was taken this morning, he really is fascinated with wearing my shoes lol..

Added sweetness

It's the first day of the hearts' month and love is in the air. So I added a little bit of sweetness to our dining table, I stumbled upon a recipe of sweet and sour pork while I was bloghopping yesterday and I prepared it today. Below is the recipe. Sweet and sour pork with pork loin and pineapple, along with seasonings.
