How was your long weekend, friends? Mine was simple, fun and happy. I had a restful Saturday because while the hubby was attending his classes in graduate school, I was stuck at home alternating between sleeping, eating, and reading books. When he got home in the afternoon, I just fed him lunch and then he joined me in procrastinating. Haha.
We spent the long weekend in Manila because my PILs requested so. They wanted the hubby to celebrate his birthday at their place because his birthday coincided with the Feast Day of St. Michael and the Archangels. It doesn’t happen every year; it’s just this year that the feast day fell on October 5th (which is the hubby’s birthday). And since we would be visiting the Shrine of the Our Lady of the Holy Rosary in Manaoag, Pangasinan together with friends by Monday, we thought it was a good idea to just stay in Manila.

Forgive my sentimentality today. It’s because my mother’s birthday is fast-approaching. My mother’s name is Amparo but her friends call her Ampy. She’s the most loving and lovable person on earth for me. I love her to the moon and back. And I know she feels the same for me. She’ll be a year older on the 30th.
my mom and I
My mother and I share a special bond. It must be because I was an only child for a long time (my brother Danison was born when I was six years old) and my parents’ attention was all on me then. I have always been the favorite child. Or so I assume. Just kidding. Haha.

To the man I chose to marry, may you continue to work with me towards a beautiful marriage filled with love, respect, faith and commitment.
To the man I chose to be my life partner, may you continue to share my values, ideals, goals and dreams. Together, let’s live simply and meaningfully and without regrets. Let’s believe that just like in fairy tales, we’ll have our own happily-ever-after ending, too.

I’ve always enjoyed attending kiddie parties, may it be held in a posh restaurant, a fast food store, a club house or even just at home. I actually dream of hosting a birthday party for my future kid. If I could have it my way, I want it to be a DIY kind of party, with beautiful things scattered all over the place. Oh well, that’s just the creative and fun-loving momma in me.
Kiddie parties are fun. The program, the parlor games, the birthday wishes, the blowing of candles on the birthday cake, the singing of the universal Happy Birthday song to the celebrant, everything about a kiddie party spells of fun and happy moments that last a lifetime. I can’t wait for the time that I’ll be sharing this wonderful experience with my future kid.

It’s my birthday today and I have a thousand reasons to celebrate it. I’m now a 28-year-old lady but still feel and act like a teenager most of the time (teheee). I don’t expect any gifts from anyone but I expect warm greetings to fill my special day from morning until night.
At 28, I’m already engaged to the man I want to spend the rest of my life with. Soon we’ll start planning our wedding that’s set for next year. (Yes, we do love to cram, haha). I’m just so glad that at this age, I have already accomplished quite a handful for myself and for my family. I may not be rich by society’s standards, but I’m not poor, either. I think I just have enough to live a decent, comfortable life and provide for the needs of my parents and my two college student siblings.
