For Father’s Day weekend this year, the hubby and I took my parents to Baguio City. It was my father’s first time in the city of pines so the trip was double the fun and excitement. We stayed at Mountainside Lodging House, the place where we stayed in during my last visit to Baguio with the hubby. For this particular visit, we saw The Mansion, Mines View Park, and Burnham Park. We bought pasalubongs and had ice cream at Good Shepherd. We had my parents experience the festive Baguio night market. We dined at Pine Country Steaks and Waffles, Good Taste Restaurant, and Cafe by the Ruins. We also had cakes from Vizco’s. All in all, it was an awesome overnight stay in Baguio appreciating Daddy and honoring his presence in our lives.
Last weekend was steady. The weather was still very hot and it didn’t help that I still had to move around the house to get things done. But everything was manageable naman despite the fact that the hubby wasn’t around. He got lucky and was able to travel to Bohol for a short vacay. He missed his parents so much and there was no better time to go. As for me, I got left behind with our pet dog Jasper. I couldn’t join the hubby because of the tight sched in our office, so sad.
Last weekend was declared an #EandEHoliday. March 17, 2019 was our 7th wedding anniversary, after all. And so we decided last minute to celebrate by having a staycation at Twin Lakes Hotel Tagaytay. Best decision, ever! I found a good deal from Deal Grocer and got a room for the hubby and me at just PhP6,250. It was actually good for three persons na but that third person is yet to be born in this world (wishful thinking!), haha. We had a fantastic stay at the hotel, got to dine at Neri’s Not So Secret Garden (bilang fan ako ng #WaisNaMisis), and visited Caleruega Retreat Center to pray and give thanks to the Lord for our awesome seven years of marriage. (I even bumped into mommy blogger Badet there who was with her family!) To more happy years together!
Last weekend was quite busy, event-wise. On Saturday, the hubby and I took care of household chores (this included giving our dog Jasper a bath and going to the wet market with Mame) and some errands. I also got to go on a movie date with Mame and my sister Jodie. Captain Marvel was entertaining and we were wowed by Brie Larson’s character’s amazing powers, ha! The movie was good, at least in our collective opinion. Movie reviews online say otherwise, though.
On Sunday, I got to do some laundry (one month’s worth of my office clothes!) in the morning and joined the hubby and my SIL Albie in going to Manila Polo Club in Makati in the afternoon for a get-together with our former bosses — the Legardas. There were lots of laughter, conversation, picture-taking, and of course, food…and for a moment, I forgot I was on a diet, hahaha.
Last weekend was slow and quiet. The hubby and I were almost homebound except for the time we went to the wet market on Saturday morning (with Mame) and heard mass in the afternoon of that same day (just the two of us). We spent a lot of our time doing household chores, eating, Netflixing, and sleeping. I’d love to have more weekends like this!
