09.08.14: See you again, Thailand
Hello, dolls! Aaaaah. I can’t believe it!!! My last BKK post! I also can’t believe that it’s been almost a year since our trip to Thailand — and it’s the weekend again…already! August is being extra good to us, we’ve been getting extra time here and there and opportunities that can change our lives. Being a go getter and having a husband who is very supportive, A and I decided to embrace this opportunity and claim it. So yeah, I do not want to speak to soon… but we feel good about this.
I know we can’t have it all, but I’ve been dreaming about going away before we kiss 2015 goodbye. I have a soul of a traveler, going to places is something that I always yearn for.

Last days are always weird for me. I can get attached to a place when travelling — major “sepanx” alert! It’s the thought of leaving one place, leaving the adventure, leaving the “life” of a traveler and going back to reality.
I only have 2 missions for my last day whenever I travel — to shop and have a happy lunch meal at a local restaurant. Continue reading “Bangkok Diaries: See you again, Thailand!”
12.16.14: Showers of Happiness
Hello,dolls!! 🙂 Aaaah…weekend <3 I can’t believe that I am already done with another week at work. It’s insane how we are already (almost) halfway done with August! Can you believe it? Cause I can’t! I feel like each week is just flying by and I wish there’s a “pause” button so I can just hold on to all the goodness that 2015 has brought and just enjoy it a little longer before we roll over to another year of ups and downs. Also, I am still enjoying the fact that A and I can say “oh yeah, we just got married a couple of months ago…this year.
I am not gonna lie..the thought of saying “I do” again excites me. Who wouldn’t be? To say I do to the same man 3 times in 2 years is AWESOME (and funny in some way haha). So yeah..I think it’s still fitting to talk about my bridal shower (that happened 8 months ago) since we are having our Greek wedding in a couple of weeks 🙂
One of the blessings that came with A when God sent him to me is his family. I always feel like the luckiest wife whenever we are with his family because they’ve always made me feel that I am part of the family since day 1…and of course the constant showers of love! <3
It truly melted my heart when my Mother-In-Law told me that she wants to throw a bridal shower for me. She is one of the best hosts that I know, so I knew the shower’s going to be ahmahzzing! — and it was!
Just one of her awesome ideas for the party. Since a good number of ladies are driving to Baltimore for my shower, she ordered this cute water bottle labels for the guests to take home 🙂 Continue reading “Bridal Shower: The Little Things”
September 2014: Save the Date
Hello,dolls! 🙂 Aaaah, AUGUST! Can you believe it’s August already?July was eventful! I remember looking forward to the last week of July and dreamed how amazing it would be — and it was! Now I am doing the same thing with August — bust my A off during the first 3 weeks of the month at work, then look forward to the last week of August because it is going to be major.
There has never been a day that I do not think about my family and friends back home. Last night was a fun night with my girls…how I wish I am saying this because we were all together at our rooftop laughing like crazies while drinking G knows what. So yeah…it was crazy night on Viber and it made miss home a little more.
I also miss being a bride-to-be (oh wait, I am a bride-to-be again. ha)
Our save-the-date, one of our Royal Albert tea seats from Grammy, and pastries from Starbucks… good morning!
I like to talk about home when I miss home.
So today, let me share with you our journey from the Philippines to the US last year when we went home for Daddy’s birthday. Continue reading “Hello, August 2015!”
Hello, dolls!! 🙂 Aaaah I know know..it’s been waaay too long.The July was super hectic…and awesome! We spent the past weekend in New York and New Jersey — how I wish we could’ve stayed longer! Now I am looking forward to August..our Greek wedding 🙂 Our family in New York and my 2 girlfriends down south are coming here to be with us that weekend yaaaay!
I am really really hoping that I finish all of my 2014 entries before A’s birthday. It will commence all the great things that will happen before the year ends. I never really got to enjoy ( meaning.. dress up ) fall during my first year here in the US because I was too busy. Last year A and I had a lot of Mondays together so I was really able o appreciae fall.
the basics of fall…brown 🙂
What better way to be fall ready?Shop for fall outfits. Continue reading “Tooloulou x Ramen 101”
