14 years?

some of us say that highschool was the best years of their lives. it was for me. all the major memories i kept were from those 4 years of my life. college was literally a blur.

up to this day, i’m still in touch with the 6 best girls who were part of my highschool life. and it was a pleasant surprise that the batch we belong to are still intact, and are still in contact with each other as well (hello and thank you facebook!)

so, one night (feb 25 to be exact) we planned a mini get together, informal. it has been 14 years since some of us last saw each other. and i think we were the only batch that didn’t celebrate our 10th year. so we better make up for it.

we met up at Skye Lounge in The Fort.

it was refreshing to see how much we’ve all grown up. we got a congresswoman, one who directly works for the president (although she wasn’t there but we did talk about how awesome her job is) and more awesome career women. majority of us are now married, with kids. some, who we didn’t expect to get married are now married.

it has been 14 years!! but i do hope that these get together becomes a yearly habit.

did i say highschool was fun? 🙂

fresh and new beginnings

a lot has happened over the course when this humble blog has gone quiet the past 2 months. and i have a lot that i want to blog about, but then all the details have passed that i might jumble them up.

but, i’ll blog about one milestone that happened to my family.

finally, after 4 years, hubby has finally ventured into a better company. one, that really “listens” and takes care of their people. we’re all too familiar with the set up in some companies, that you get “power” and “influence” when you know someone up there. hubby and i were never advocates of those. we still believe in the old adage of working hard to get to the top.

and i am bursting with pride and happiness that he finally left. after a year of begging. money was never an issue since it comes and goes. sure, it helps with the needs and wants, but nothing comes after. and now, hubby has his weekends back. 2 days of real relaxation and not worrying about other people’s problems. we can finally do parenting together.

what joy to finally have a family day/weekend.

what a great birthday gift as well to hubby!

cheers to the new milestone and a new, and better career!

i am doing something right after all.

i stumbled upon this blog post from my facebook feed. and after reading it, it felt like a pat on the back that i am doing something good for and to my boys.

Here’s the link: 25 rules for mothers of sons

25 rules for mothers of sons

it felt good that from the start, the things that i teach my boys were part of this list. to note a few:

– Be a cheerleader for his life
– Read to him and read with him.
– Teach him to have manners
– Let him ruin his clothes / Get Dirty
– Let him lose
– Answer him when he asks, “Why?”
– Always carry band-aids and wipes on you.
– Build him forts

and to add to my list, let him explore toys that girls play – cooking sets, dolls, etc. because eventually they’ll outgrow these and stick to cars, robots, trucks and blocks. toys are toys, they all make use of a child’s imagination. it will not dictate their gender preference when they grow up. (i grew up playing with boy’s toys, and here i am, a mother of 3.)

what comfort to know that i am indeed doing something right after all in the motherhood department. 🙂

my boys ❤

resolutions

since it’s the new year, and with people broadcasting their resolutions left and right, might as well post mine.

i listed down things that are feasible to do the whole year and realistic ones, so here goes:

 

– de clutter the room. get rid of stuff no longer needed.

– learn to wear make up everyday and when meeting with clients.

– moisturize!

– list down 1 thing i’m thankful for everyday.

– less: shouting, getting mad easily, impatience, procrastination.

– read more books

– write write write

– take more photos

– blog at least a week.

 

simple right? 🙂 i opted not to include the losing weight part since doing so would be in vain since i’m on injectibles. but that’s different from getting enough exercise everyday!

 

so here’s to the new year and to goals!

happy new year! happy new you!

Happy New Year!

happy new year!!

happy new year! welcome to 2012!

i know i know this post is 5 days late. but hey, it’s still the 1st week of the year so it still counts!

my blog may have gone on a long hiatus from posts and content, but i promised myself that this year, i MUST have at least 1 entry per week.

i missed writing so much. all the things i wanted to blog about have been “kept” inside my head. and i think, it’s about time that i let it all out. it may be written in the planner (which i promised myself as well to write in everyday), but it will be posted here.

if your’re reading this entry now, why not leave a comment so that i’ll know i still have readers out there. 🙂

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

i promise

day 28 of the 30 day blog challenge. 2 more days to go!

to post daily again.

..amidst the ton of work i do everyday.

..amidst the new raket i got which requires me to post almost everyday as well, among other stuff.

to use my camera to it’s full potential or just use it for it’s worth.

to be thankful for everyday.

to laugh more. worry less.

to make time for myself.

to lessen complaints. and just act on it.

I won!

never in my life have i won any blog give away, until now. and from who else but from a mommy friend i met online! MAY!

her blog giveaway was loaded with yummyness! and i just had to join! (ok, i loved the bag too!)

and when i found out that i was the lucky winner! i couldn’t believe it, no really!

so i messaged may asap, gave her my address and these goodies came in the mail the next day:

labelled the goodies

oh you can just imagine the sad state those napoloeones came in. they were squished to almost paper thiness. but my mom and i eased their pain. those yummy squares were gone that same day. ( i saved some for hubby of course – and now he’s still craving for it)

as for the piaya and tartlets, they were happily settled in my boy’s tummies. especially k2 who surprisingly adored the piayas. k3 devoured the tarts. where’s k1? well, he had his equal share among all the goodies. 🙂

as for the bag, mother dear wanted to have the bag for herself, but i said no. but she can borrow it. it was given by a good friend so, it must be put to good use (haven’t thought of it yet. it sits inside my cabinet though LOL)

and here’s k3, modelling the bag may gave. 🙂

nice angle little one 🙂

again, thank you may! looking forward to the next giveaway! 🙂
