Our Second Pregnancy Story: Meet Nazarene Joy, Our Rainbow Baby

It was the second week of June 2019 when the hubby and I learned that we were pregnant. My mens was delayed and I suddenly had this strange feeling that I might be pregnant and what do you know, the home pregnancy test I took turned out to be positive! We saw the Ob-Gyne on June 22nd but we didn’t get to do an ultrasound until July 6th and that was when we confirmed that we were really expecting. Of course, both of our extended families were ecstatic about the good news. As for the hubby and me, we were over the moon! ­čÖé

Weekend Story: Edwin’s 40th Birthday Celebration

Last weekend was meaningful and fun. The hubby turned 40 last Saturday and we celebrated it the best way we could. The celebrant wanted to go swimming courtesy of the condo’s swimming pools and so we did. We just brought in some food which we partook of picnic style inside our unit.

On Sunday, we went to Festival Mall in Alabang to buy maintenance meds for my PILs (which they will take to Bohol with them this week) and had a post-birthday dinner for the hubby at Via Mare.

Weekend Story: #PippoDay + Family Time

Last weekend was memorable and fun. On Saturday, the hubby and I celebrated our little angel’s 7th birthday in heaven by hearing the anticipated mass at St. Michael the Archangel Shrine in Malaca├▒ang, visiting his niche housed in that same church complex, and having dinner at Wok Inn Restaurant in Malate with our former La Cocina boss, Dr. Ramon Legarda.

On Sunday, we went to the condo again and swam in the pool. We just brought some sandwiches and chips so we had something to eat while there. We then spent the rest of the day at S&R Baclaran (to catch the last day of the members’ treat) and at home.

Weekend Story: New Condo + Jasper the Friendly Dog’s 2nd Birthday

So last weekend was kinda hectic but fun. The condo unit we bought in Bacoor was turned over to us last week. We visited it and got to hang out at the massive lounge there and try one of the swimming pools at the garden area. So far, so good.

We also celebrated our family pet’s second birthday by buying him a cake. He’s grown so big and super kulit and he continues to bring joy into our lives. We love him dearly.

The Big Purchase (a.k.a. Our First Real Estate Investment as a Married Couple)

On February 8, 2018, the hubby and I made a major decision to buy a two-bedroom condo unit with service area and parking slot from a local developer. Project location is also in Bacoor but it cuts our travel time going to work in Manila by 6km from the average 24km. Coastal Road is merely a minute away which translates to a later departure each weekday morning when the time comes that we live there for good. Exciting times ahead!
