Fun Friday!

Post Content


First Friday of 2013, woohoo!!! This signals the first weekend yet again, as if the long holiday vacation is not enough. But it’s true, I don’t think vacations will ever be be long enough with all the family gatherings, social responsibilities, errands and tasks to attend to. Haha.

I’m excited for the weekend! This, I’m sure, will help in psyching ourselves back to our normal schedule and routine.

Hope you had a fun Friday! And happy happy weekend, y’all!!!

So many ways to say “I Do”

Before the start of Chrismastime and after the new year’s, we have paused with our wedding planning until last night. We hit play again in discussing the perfect date, venue and caterer for our day. These are just some of the aspects that we consider as the major bulk of our planning and preparation.

We originally thought that we’ve short listed our ceremony and reception venue options down to two but due to budget and date constraints, we are in search for other garden venues and caterers to suit our requirements. We’ve spotted a couple of reception venues we are interested in but there are a lot of things to be clarified before we finally decide (and share it here with you).

Another aspect is the type of wedding ceremony we’ll choose. The most common types are religious ceremony, civil union, non-traditional such as beach weddings, amongst others. Ever since I don’t recall when, I’ve imagined my wedding to be laid-back and would take place in the great outdoors or a beautiful garden, not just the reception but even the ceremony. And so, I thought I wouldn’t consider saying our I Dos inside a church but Paco Park and Caleruega are making me change my mind. Not that I’m complaining though. *smirks* Hope we get answers to our clarifications so we can finally book both the ceremony and reception venues!

What do you want your 2013 rituals to be?

It’s the 2nd day of the new year and yet, I must (shamefully) admit that we are still behind our unfinished businesses and projects! Today, we worked on cleaning and organizing our apartment… and the creative room we (mostly just B) have been working on for few months. The wall and one table have been painted! There are still a couple of furnitures to be added but… Eeep I’m excited to see the final results of my soon-to-be home office slash creative bat cave! *grin*

Early in the afternoon, we took a break from all the domestic work and had our lunch outside. This year, aside from physically preparing for our wedding *swoon*, we also both wanted to have a better and healthier lifestyle. I contemplated to make the right choice in the food I’m going to gobble on! Tilapia and pancit bihon lunch FTW! Arugula and mixed greens with Japanese and Italian Vinaigrette for dinner. Hooray! Although I won’t keep it a secret that I’ve a few share of my sweet moments for my little snacks — mom’s buko pandan and lil brother’s pasalubong J.Co donuts! Soon the desserts-filled refrigerator will be empty so allow me to enjoy this moment while it lasts. Haha!

This new year, one of my mantras would have to be to “Fight, fight , fight life.” to make everyday of my life, our lives better and brighter. We may be behind a lot of things right now, but soon I know that all will fall into it’s rightful place.

I couldn’t be more excited of what’s in store for all of us this 2013. Just as long as we keep on doing what we do best in making things better, every single day.

Let’s start this new year right!
