Last weekend was highlighted by some small accomplishments and big milestones. The hubby and I drove home in Bacoor on Friday night. Our Saturday was easy breezy. As promised, the delivery guys arrived in our house at around noon with our new ref (first ref we bought since we got married!). By nighttime, we went to the supermarket to buy supplies so we had something to put inside our new appliance. It was kinda funny because we were both thrilled as if it was our first time to go grocery shopping. Haha.
Our Sunday morning was spent hearing mass and our afternoon, watching movies from the hubby’s recently-acquired gadget called Mi box (where you get to have unlimited access to movies, TV series, docus, videos, and a lot more provided you have good internet access). We were back in Manila on Sunday night to have dinner with our family at Cabalen SM Manila. It was Mame’s birthday on that day and it’s my PILs wedding anniversary today so we decided to do a double celebration.

Last weekend was spent with family and friends (our usual routine). The hubby and I actually had a long one because we took a leave from work on Friday to attend the wedding of our friend Leisette in Pasig. We would then drive home in Bacoor on Saturday afternoon with my parents and my sister Jodie who was celebrating her birthday the next day. That night, we heard the anticipated mass at Madonna del Amore Parish and went straight to Evia Lifestyle Center after. We then treated our house guests to Chinese food for dinner at Hap Chan. Jodie’s birthday salubong happened inside the moviehouse where we watched Spiderman Homecoming in 4D (her treat!). We returned to Manila on Sunday night where we met up with the rest of the fam bam at Okada Manila to watch the dancing fountain there. It was another weekend to remember and be grateful for!

Last weekend was a-okay. On Saturday, I accompanied Mame to the nearest hospital for a medical check-up. Because my brother has recently made extra gigil to her by carrying and hugging her tight, the area under her left boob got sprained. She started complaining about the pain and eventually asked me to take her to the doctor, but not before a few attempts by the manghihilot have failed to give her the relief she wanted. It turned out it was just a case of muscle inflammation that some warm compress and pain reliever could heal. Thank God! I can be paranoid when it comes to the health of my family (who’s not?) so I’m glad this simple health problem is resolved now.

Because the hubby and I were in Bohol when Mother’s Day came, I asked Mame (who dragged my sister Jodie along) to join us for the weekend in Bacoor so I could take her on a date, a post Mother’s Day celebration of sorts. We didn’t do anything grand, we just drove around and dined out at some of Mame’s fave restos (yung mga namiss nya daw kainan!). We reached Bacoor on Saturday afternoon and spent the night there. We then went to Solenad in Sta. Rosa City, Laguna on Sunday morning before going home in Manila that same day. Mame made us laugh a lot again with her unique sense of humor and before we knew it, the weekend was over.

Last weekend was quite hectic. On Friday night, we had a family dinner at The Hashery, the newly-opened casual dining restaurant catering mostly to students in Sampaloc, Manila. On Saturday morning, I, accompanied by the hubby and Mame, did some yarn shopping in Rosario, Pasig (Gantsilyo Guru’s shop and Lacion Yarn Store). After that, we all went home in Bacoor with a stop-over at S&R Baclaran. I would be hosting a dinner for my godchildren that night and due to time constraints, I resorted to buying ready-to-eat food and some easy-to-prepare salad ingredients from there. (I just cooked pasta and rice when we got home.) While I was picking food items off the shelves, the hubby was buying new tires which he had the S&R tire center staff installed to our car.) We got back to Manila on Sunday afternoon as I had this work-related meeting to attend. The hubby biked to Roxas Blvd. while I was busy in the office. We would see each other again at night and I would start crocheting for a new project before going to bed.
It was another packed weekend for us. We had lots of fun and laughter and we felt productive at the same time. Here are photos from our weekend activities:

Last weekend passed by quickly. On Saturday, the hubby and I, along with Mame, attended the christening and first birthday of my newest godchild Maria Justine Riley somewhere in Quezon City. (She’s the daughter of my childhood friend Jenalin.) We drove straight to Bacoor after the event.
