The one with our gifts

One thing I love most about our marriage is that we've learned to spoil each other once in a while.  We know that we work hard, and I'm prettyre sure we're blessed with talents that we can use in our respective fields.  We also know that we work hard to help our families.  And God has blessed us with everything we need for our family and our immediate families.  But of course, there always comes a time when we feel like rewarding ourselves with material things "once in a while".  (in quotation marks since i'm really not sure of the frequency when you say, "once in a while"...hahaha) So without much ado, please let me indulge you with our latest babies. hahaha. (pagbigyan nyo nako, ngayon lang...)

Yes, wishlist granted!

Her gift:  LV Speedy 30 damier ebene
It's my first LV bag and I'm sooo excited because I was really ok with buying a second hand one but I got a brand new instead! yey! I don't know, i've whacked my brains out rationalizing just not to buy one but I'll always end up wanting one.  Simon has been aware of this ever since but I never insisted on buying one unless i'm sure that i'm ready for it...And two weeks ago, I knew i was ready for it. hahaha. call it shallow but this is one of the things i've dreamt of.  I'm just so blessed to have a husband who learned to understand accept me. ;) I can be a cheapskate for clothes, heck, i buy 100 peso clothes for cyring out loud, but i never knew my love for bags has begun as early as now. hahaha.
  

His gift:  Samsung Galaxy Tab.  
I've never deprived Simon from any of his wishlists, may it be an instrument, a gadget (which happens to be on a quarterly basis), or anything mc-gyver-kind-of-things, for the sole reason that i know he knows his limits and I know he can convince me to agree with him. hahaha.  But this gadget has made its way to my approval because i myself wanted to have one.  When I saw this and its uses, I instantly knew it would also go well with my business especially during meetings.  But since my lappy is just 6 months old, I can manage to wait...hahaha. He loves his phone so much, he is now disposing his iphone, his samsung experia and nokia 5800 altogether.  He does'nt see the purpose of keeping the others when he does'nt need them anymore.  I may be an htc virgin when it comes to phones but promise, this is one of his best buys for me. :)

Congratulations to us beh! love our new toys! thank you Lord for these! :) we promise to take care of them. :)

The one withthe girl in uniform

She's a school girl now... How time flies really fast.  Still could'nt get over the fact that she is really studying now... And I'm just so proud of her.  I'm happy that she's enjoying everyday in school.  She's always excited going to school.  I also love that Simon and I always manage to bring our kid to school everyday...together. :) I love how we are able to manage our time and keep on thanking God for this.  That we are able to nurture our kid and still work and earn all at the same time.

Anyway,  I still have'nt posted any picture of simone in uniform.  She was a little sick last week because of cough and colds, thus, not in any mood for pictures.  But yesterday I managed to take a couple of pictures because it was her first time to get not one but two sets of stars. hahaha. I'm so shallow!

showing off her stars! :)

She now has a new set of clothes in the cabinet.  A new journey of her life...where everything is a learning process. Don't worry anak, I'll always be here to guide you, love you and support you in the best way we can. :)

On a lighter note, now that these uniforms will take more space in her cabinet, i wonder where i can put my naughty nurse costume now.  i've been wanting to wear it for the longest time...hahaha. it's supposed to be a naughty one, but since it does'nt fit, it's just a display now. hahaha.

The one with re-ignited

I had a fun day with our BFFs! Together with my hubby and kid, we played badminton with the Ramoses and the Blancos. Had a blast! My love for badminton was ignited again.  I also realized that I really love badminton more than running/jogging.  I dont know, badminton gives a certain kind of excitement that you don't feel in running.  Your mind works when you set your strategies as to how to hit the shuttlecock and make it go elsewhere. hahaha.

Thank you. I hope we'd make this a regular thing guys!

The one with Simone's paintings

I've been wanting to post these for a very long time but keep on forgetting to do so.  Anyway, Simone has always loved arts, whether performing arts (sing, dance, play instruments) or creative (painting, drawing) and here is her first gallery.  I started introducing paints to her when she was two years old and instantly, she liked finger painting and just making shapes out of her paints.  Her freehand paints started when she was almost three years old, making houses and stickman. :) And here are some of her works. naks!

Love you Simone!

The one with first day!

Last June 15 was Simone's first day in school.  We could'nt be more proud for her.  I was the one nervous and excited about it. But we are very hopeful that she will like this school. 

She stayed in the room the whole time...did'nt ask for mommy at all. :)  When it was time for dismissal, her teacher commented that Simone is very smart and attentive.  I was all smiles  upon hearing her statement but just gladly responded with "thank you po".

Thank you anak for enjoying school.  Don't worry, I will still homeschool you and study with you.  I love you!
