Hooray Thursday: Big Birthday

Entry Comments Actions

Having a birthday wish list was part of my little tradition since 2009 and most of them were fulfilled and granted (see the others here and here). I missed to write one last year, but having my B proposed to me was the greatest wish I could ever ask for, exactly on my birthday last year — I got engaged!

This year, another lifelong wish was granted — after a year-long of preparation, we already tied the knot and I’m already B’s missus. *swoon*

So writing my birthday wish list now does not only apply to me, but to my now-husband.

Yes — most of my wish this year is to rearrange and redecorate our love nest! *grins*

I have more birthday wishes, so stay tuned for the Part 2 of my Hooray Thursday: Big Birthday Wish List.

Happy birthday to all the November celebrants!!! *kisses*

We’re married!!! I tied the knot with my darling Brian last November 9 in Caleruega. A little over one week has passed of being married and I still fantasize of what could have been done to make our day even better. But with the overflowing love and support from our families and friends who celebrated with us (despite Typhoon Haiyan / Yolanda), not to mention the wonderful snapshots they have captured, I was reminded that the most important thing is that — our wedding pushed through, our most awaited event of making our lifetime commitment in front of the Lord and our loved ones known happened. And that to me is a beautiful wedding.

I have opted to keep our wedding joys “offline” in respect of the victims of Typhoon Haiyan / Yolanda that hit the Philippines, mainly the Visayas region, the day before our wedding. My family, Brian’s family, our entourage, some guests and suppliers already stayed in Tagaytay November 8, the day before our wedding, but even us were not spared by the terror of this typhoon.

There were chaos brought about by the unexpected weather — hindering the attendance of some of our friends, a sleepless night due to the heavy winds smashing our cottage and suppliers who scared me to death because Show Content ofA Couple of Forevers /Read More

Welcome, November! I know you are going to be an awesome month. I’m excited to live each day off your watch!

SURPRISE Bridal Spa Party!!!

{ SURPRISE Bridal Spa Party }

Three weeks well into our wedding, my lovely maid of honor — Jaja, planned and organized this surprise bridal shower via a spa party at Bejewelled Spa with my friends. Weeks before this date, I was bugging my B asking why I don’t feel like Jaja was planning something for me and even thought of her as “heartless” LOL.

Maybe not all girls would admit that if you are a soon-to-be-bride, there is this urge that you want to be pampered by your friends and feel extra special by having a party in your honor and showering you with those tiny, sexy gifts — but I shamelessly admitted it to my B. He did his part on this surprise by keeping his mouth shut, pretending not to know anything and by agreeing to throw me a one-on-one cupcake party at Vanilla Cupcake Bakery and a shopping spree at a lingerie shop! Good thing we didn’t have to do that alone because little did I know — I was in for a lovely treat!

{ With the whole awesome friends who threw this SURPRISE Bridal Spa Party!!! }

I have been to this hidden gem, that is Bejewelled Spa a couple of times before. About last month I treated Jaja here for a full body massage. That was a good decision because since I introduced this to her, she now knew a place where she can execute her surprise bridal shower for me. Win – win!!
