Weekend Story: Christmas Shopping Here and There

Last weekend, the hubby and I continued with our Christmas shopping. Little purchases here and there in the past weekends and before we knew it, we were able to complete all we needed to buy for ourselves this Christmas, including our gifts for each other. As usual, family members wanted cash gifts instead of actual presents and so those were what they got. The good thing about this is I have a feeling we’ll have a stress-free holiday come December 25th. The sad thing about this is there’s no longer a Landmark Makati Christmas shopping with my girls to look forward to this month like in the past years. Sila rin naman kasi nagsipag-shopping na rin nung mga nakaraang linggo, kami rin nga yung magkakasama lol, kaya halos nabili na rin ang lahat ng kailangan nila.

The hubby and I drove home in Bacoor on Friday night along with my SIL Albie. Then we went out on Saturday afternoon to shop in Alabang while Albie commuted back to Manila because she wanted to spend the rest of the weekend with my PILs. We stayed in Bacoor until Sunday afternoon and met with my in-laws at night to have dinner and do more shopping at our fave mall, SM Manila, haha.

Weekend Story: More Crocheting + Christmas Shopping with Family

Last weekend flew by so quickly. Before I knew it, it was already time to go back to work. But it’s okay because I can’t imagine doing nothing all week. I need to be productive so I’d have a reason to relax and do fun things after. Haha.

I spent most of Saturday crocheting. I’ve finally finished my first project. It was supposed to be for me but my measurements were wrong. Very wrong! Ang liit ng nagawa ko, pang-baby na halos! Lakas nga ng tawa ni Mame, inaasar ako, hahaha. I’m going to give it to one of my godchildren who’s still a baby. I’m 100% sure it will fit her.

Weekend Story: A Musical, A Shopping Trip, and A Birthday Party

Last weekend was packed and fun-filled. Truly, the holiday season is here!

Half of our Saturday was spent in Makati watching the awesome musical The Bridges of Madison County at RCBC Plaza, enjoying dinner at Backyard Kitchen + Brew in Circuit Makati (our first time there), and checking out the dancing lights at the festive Ayala Triangle Gardens. The hubby and I were with my sister Jodie and my SIL Albie and we had lots of fun.

Weekend Story: More Quality Time with Family At Home and Outside

The recent long weekend gave the hubby and I ample time to bond with our family in our Bacoor home and outside. What a great way to end November, I’d say. Hello, December! I know you’re gonna be merry and bright.

On Saturday afternoon, I accompanied my brother to the mall to buy a new cabinet for his clothes before meeting Mame and my cousin Jun at my siblings’ place. The three of us were then picked up by the hubby so we could hear the anticipated mass before driving home in Bacoor.

Christmas Shopping 2015

It’s that time of the year again. Are you done with Christmas shopping? Yes? Not yet? I know some people who start shopping for Christmas presents as early as July. As for me, I’m still in the process of completing my list and trying to set a decent budget for it. I normally charge it to my credit card and get the money from my year-end bonus when it’s payment time. Unlike last year when I overspent a little, I plan to stick to my budget this time. Like, seriously.

Aside from going to Divisoria and hitting the malls for Christmas presents, I also plan to shop online. I even think I’d shop for most of the items in my list online. It sounds more convenient and practical to me given the horrible traffic situation here in Manila.
