Ever Changing Mind

Uno wanted to have a Dora themed party for her 3rd birthday. I am not a fan so I kept on persuading her for a cuter theme, Hello Kitty perhaps. But no, she has a mind of her own and insisted on having a Dora party. It’s her party and her decisiveness was admirable, so there, Dora party for her 3rd birthday. I made sure I infuse some Dora related stuff while I prepare for Dos’ basketball party so I won’t cram during the 1 week birthday interval. Not until…

She was given this pair of shoes. She’s so fond of it that she wore this with everything, even in undies. It was as fast as the blink of an eye Hello Kitty was her new Dora. It became her favorite and wanted to have it as her birthday theme.

Me: Diba, you’re having a Dora party.

Her: No, Hello Kitty only.

Me: Oh, no. We cannot change it anymore, I already bought Dora balloons.

Her: It’s okay, just buy Hello Kitty balloons.
You’re so clever baby. Now I’m cramming.

It's Over But Not Quite

Today, the 29th of October is a holiday. I self-proclaimed that though.hehe

Did you ever feel so bored and empty following the day of what seem to be the most tiring, the most hectic and busiest day of your life? I always do. I am actually on that note today. I’m here in the office right now, but seem longing for something to do (not work related – I declared this day a holiday, right?lol). Must be the adrenaline rush, I somewhat missed the cutting, lay-outing, researching I used to do while I prepare for Dos’ birthday party, (not to mention the exchange of communications from various suppliers). Hay, it was over, a bittersweet ending. 

I’m very proud of myself, of mi esposo. I couldn’t actually believe we were able to execute our ideas well enough to be appreciated by our guests. Oh well, the DIYs was actually solely my idea, he was totally against it. But I am glad after some crying scenes and a lot of arguments time he learned to embrace our project (with rolling eyes every now and then). 

But let me tell you a little secret, it's not really over. Uno's  actual birthday is on Saturday and I'm planning to give a little something for my baby g. So, I better enjoy this day, because sooner than later, I’ll be back to work. You don’t need to roll those eyes my dear esposo. I got this covered. Mwah

Isang Dekada Na!

September 13 is the day we hark back to the start of our relationship. It’s been 10 years now, but I can still feel like it was only yesterday. Time really flies when you’re having fun. It’s a big milestone but we didn’t have anything fancy. We just took the day-off to run to a party-related errand, had lunch and spent the rest of the afternoon in hibernation. #AloneatLastAngDrama

It’s was our 10th year, of course I wouldn’t just let it pass. I actually made an effort for this particular gift, it was months in the process. Since the day it was announced that the NBA Global Games will be staged in the country and the esposo made a pronouncement that he NEED-to-catch-it-LIVE, I knew that it was the best gift for him. I stayed attune of the ticket selling, saved money made way to source the fund and waited. Finally, I got it on the 2nd hour (just because I had a credit card issues on the 1st hour) of the 1st day of ticket sales. I had it even before we went to Misibis Bay for our Family Anniversary but thought "our" anniversary was the perfect timing.

On the night of September 13, approximately the same time as when I gave my yes to him 10 years back, I gave my gift. He was elated as usual, surprised, happy and excited. And as a common practise, he didn’t have anything for me. I'm expecting that, so I'm prepared...

I bought 2 tickets, no worries. J
