Simple Celebration - 8th Anniversary

My pregnancy condition did not allow us to celebrate/dine out on our wedding anniversary this year. But Hunny tried to make that day special for us still by making it a pizza and cake night, not just for the the two of us but for the whole family. :-)

Love you dad!

Hello Hello!

Don't grow up too fast kids!

My Kids' Birthdays 2013

We quietly celebrated the actual birthdays of our kids this week. The big birthday celebration is still to be held next weekend.
Luigi turned 4 on the 8th while Zoe turned 7. Wow! We consider these as huge milestone in their lives. I'm so happy to see my kids grow into lovely people. My wish is for them to become kind and wise adults as they grow up.
I love you my kids.

New Year, New Life, New Baby

It seems that my last blog post title is a premonition of things to come. We're currently 7 weeks along and I am ecstatic to have a third baby born into our humble family.

As they say, life is what is happens when you are busy making plans. Though the baby actually came as a surprise for us, it's a great, great surprise and we are uberly delighted no less.

Pls. pray for baby and me that we do this right all 9 months of it. I'm currently on bed rest due to some spotting early this week. Hopefully I'll feel a little better and be back to work in no time. There is nothing else that I wish for but to hold a hold a beautiful and healthy bouncing baby in January! Can't wait!

By the way, today is my husband's birthday. Let me just give honor to him here by saying that he is the best gift that God has given to me. He is my better-half, my love, my inspiration and my life.

RH Bill Update

I normally do not surf through local news and felt quite bad to see the Philippines in the international news pages.

Really, P-Noy?

Christmas is Coming!

The Christmas tree is up early and the kids are excited to put up their socks for Santa.

Here is Luigi's Christmas sock.

This one is Zoe's Christmas sock.

I wonder what Santa will bring the kids this year. Hmmm....

Money Quotes

Re-posting from a helpful site since I want to take my professional and financial plans in perspective. Maybe these will help me decide what to do and hopefully it will lead me to true financial freedom. 

I want to be financially independent. I want to work (if I decide to work) on what I enjoy the most, not on what pays me the most.
— Jose Anes, financial blogger
Paying for yesterday is perhaps the most important investment you can make in your future. Getting rid of those debts will buy you breathing room. It will buy a future of freedom. And it will bring your dreams — the things you really, really want — into reach.
— Elizabeth Warren & Amelia Warren Tyagi, All Your Worth (Review)
Your bills tell your past, but they also tell your future. Every debt, every monthly payment, every dollar you owe is a claim against your future. Debt affects what you can — and cannot — do about your future. And when you pay off the credit cards and IOUs, you open up new worlds of financial possibilities for yourself. You have more to spend, more to save, and a whole lot less to worry about.
— Elizabeth Warren & Amelia Warren Tyagi, All Your Worth (Review)
Your worth as a person does not come from what you are paid. It comes from who you are and what you give.
— Joe Dominguez, Your Money or Your Life

Cristy's Wedding

 My childhood best friend Cristy married Ramil last September 8 and I was the Matron of Honor. :-) It was a lovely wedding. 

Sharing some of the precious pictures from this event.

Best wishes to you! Hope your marriage will be as beautiful as your wedding. Love, love, love you!

Linggo ng Wika

Getting ready for the Linggo ng Wika next week. Bought this Filipiniana outfit from a store in Taytay, Rizal. I just need to use starch to "oomph" the butterfly sleeves and we're good to go.

What if I was in Christine Aguilera's shoes?

Actually, what came to my mind when I saw this picture was - What if I also owned a gazzilion shoes like Christina Aguilera, I get pregnant (again) and then never return to my old shoe size (just like what happened to me)????? My feet were 6.5 inches before and now I'm a size 8.

Oh well, maybe for Christina Aguilera she can afford to replace all of these damn shoes or at least hire a trainer to be able to return to her old weight and original shoe size. But for me, that's close to being a miracle. Sigh.

But then again, maybe owning these beautiful and uber expensive shoes would be reason enough for her. (rationalizing!)

Every so often, we let our kids ride the carousel....

For fifty bucks, it's a priceless childhood experience. :-) Love, love, love that these pictures are able to capture that fond memory.

Banana Split Celebration

Sometimes, God sends us some tests for Him to see if we really, really trust Him. While we felt moved and somewhat a bit troubled, we did trust Him (!!!) and thus, we celebrated my sister's health with a huge banana split! Of course, we did have remorse after finishing it all up and vowed to diet once again. Hahaha.

I love you Ate! I wish you a long life of grace and good health.
