I Am 39!

     Last weekend I celebrated my 39th birthday. Yup... You read it right, I am 39 years old already, one more and I will be entering the big 40. Compared to last year's celebration (click here), this year was kinda simple. The previous day, I went to David's Salon at Robinson's to have a trim, since it is summer and super duper ang init (it is really hot). Then after the haircut, went to Nailaholics to have a pedicure. On my birthday itself, the usual I went to hear mass at Mt. Carmel church. Instead of the usual cake, I decided to order a double chocolate cupcake with vanilla icing (yummy... and who cares about calories, it's my birthday... hahaha!) from BAKING MAMA (click link to her facebook page).

     Around 10 in the morning I received a SMS that the cupcakes are for pick-up already. And just by the smell of it and the simple presentation, winner na ito for me, I am not that difficult to please when it comes to food especially chocolates, hehehe! Here are the pictures of the very delicious cupcakes.

Nice box.... 

The cupcakes that I ordered,

     I thought the flavor I ordered will be too sweet since it is double chocolate right, but no, the taste is just right, not too sweet at all. The vanilla frosting is just right as well. Baking Mama didn't failed me at all. In the afternoon my kids and I went to the mall to have our mirienda (snack) at Pizza Hut. After eating we decided to go to National Bookstore, one of our favorite hang out place in the mall to check out if there are new books, but wala pa din.

     It was a simple get together with family and having a great time with them is more than enough to have that celebration. Can't wait for my 40th birthday. (wink)

Just Give Me A Reason: My Current Favorite Song


    The first time I heard this song from MYX, I instantly fell in love with the song. My daughter told me that Pink sang this. And I want to share it with you my dear bloggers my current favorite song...

Grad. Ball - Ate Joie's Turn

     Last March 16, 2013 was one of the unforgettable moments in my 2nd daughter's school life, it was their Graduation Ball. Mind you, she was only in grade 6 then. For any graduating students (whether grade 6, 4th year students) I know for sure, this is THE one night event that all of them will never forget. For my daughter's graduation ball, it was held at Luntian Resort here in Lipa City. It started with a Thanksgiving Mass followed by dinner then the program itself. Without further ado here are the photos from that special evening for the grade 6 students of Early Start Learning Center.

     It was one night that even us parents will never ever forget. We all had a blast event the teachers, for just one night, had fun and danced to their hearts content.

Rantings of a Mom....

     It's April already?! Whoa! Time really flies sooo fast that the first quarter of the year is done and summer vacation has begun. It will be 2 months with my girls around. 2 months of chaos (admit it moms out there) no matter how thankful we are that our children are in the house, most of the time it is chaos around. Shouting of the kids here and there, scattered toys around - especially on my part, which I still have a 6 year old daughter who just knows how to play and is not in the mood to keep her toys after she played with it. More time for the kids, especially with my 2 older ones, to spend on the computers or playing with their father's PSP. But then again, it will be just for 2 short months that these things will happen. 2 short months that my house will be in chaos. 2 short months that everyday of my life I will definitely hear shoutings from my 2 older ones to their youngest sister. 2 short months that I will be spending it with my girls, just laying around in the bed a little longer, watching our favorite morning serye, PLEASE BE CAREFUL WITH MY HEART. 2 short months that we will be enjoying to our hearts content.

     This post may be about my rantings and all but I so love my 3 daughters to the max. These girls are our (my husband's as well) strength to go on with our daily lives no matter how difficult it may be. So bring it on, the chaos and all, for I know I could really manage it.
