Last weekend was super fun, memorable, and meaningful. It was baby NJ’s first birthday on Sunday, after all. As what we had planned out, we had a small party at the condo attended only by family. We brought drinks (and the whole house!) to the condo and had food delivered from various sources. We also hired a photographer (thanks again kuya Raul Mansilungan of Love Photography!) who took tons of beautiful photos of our simple celebration.
The hubby and I were exhausted after the party but we were so so happy our rainbow baby is now one. From having an infant, we now have a toddler, yay! Where has the time gone?

It was just an impromptu trip but it turned out to be so much fun because, well, I was with the hubby. So, I celebrated my 35th birthday last Friday (October 12th) through a simple family dinner where I had food delivered via @papacarbsph on IG. Sarap ng food nila ha, at mura pa! The prices of their dishes good for 12pax range from PhP699 to PhP1,499 only. I will definitely order from them again!

Last weekend was awesome. The hubby and I had loads of fun doing three things: biking, movie watching, and shopping. I wish we have more weekends like that. Yung medyo active at maraming fun outdoors. Masaya pala yung ganon paminsan-minsan. Haha.

The hubby and I celebrated my birthday last Saturday simply and quietly. I was expecting for a surprise from him but he didn’t have any. Haha. He failed me this time, but it’s no big deal. He just told me to get something for myself when we went to the mall on my exact birthday and paid for it. So, what did I buy? No, I didn’t get the military challenge coin online I saw last month that would have started my dream coin collection. Instead, I got two things: the dress and the pair of shoes I had been eyeing for weeks. Yes, I finally have them now. Good things really happen to those who wait.

If it was a red velvet cake for the hubby for his birthday, this time I made myself a no-bake blueberry cheesecake. I got the recipe from a friend’s blog and the cake turned out to be good, but not good enough for me. The crust broke when I sliced it (I overdid the sugar) and the cake itself wasn’t as smooth as I’d liked it to be. (Yes, I think I really need to get an electric mixer soon.) The taste was fantastic, though. The canned blueberry filling I bought from the supermarket wasn’t too sweet which I thought was a good thing as it balanced out the flavors of the cake.
