Bridal Shower: Rianna said OUI!

12.6.14: Oui!

Hello, dolls! Hello, November!! <3 Birthday month!!! Yay 🙂 It’s a very exciting month for A and I. We started November with something BIG that will change our lives forever. November is super exciting because we are just a couple of days away from moving in to our house after my birthday. It was just a vision before, and I can’t believe that it’s really happening now!!

People talked about quarter life crisis a lot and kind of warned me about it. Truthfully, I am not scared. I have an amazing year ahead of me and the way I see it, with the amount of blessings that I have been given, there is no doubt that I can’t overcome whatever obstacle I will face.

With only less than 60 days left before we kiss 2015 goodbye, I wish I have enough time to talk about all the amazing things that happened to me last year. 2014 was the year I fell in love with Baltimore more. It was the year I opened my heart to creating a life here with A. And no I am not leaving Manila behind.

One of the best things that happened to me last year was my first bridal shower hosted by my Mother in Law and Maria 🙂 


Dream come true to have a Paris themed party for me 🙂

How perfect is this Eiffel Tower gift box?


Pink bubbly for the ladies


Fresh raspberries to garnish our ice cold champagne


So much love for these ladies <3


This appetizer was the bomb, but unfortunately I forgot the name because duhh I am writing this a year late (almost).

That dipping sauce is


Mozzarella Positano

 tomatoes topped with fresh mozzarella, prosciutto, and feta cheese with balsamic glaze.

One of the best appetizers I’ve had! It’s light and fresh with the right flavor balance. YUM!

Antipasto Classico

cold cuts, grilled vegetables, and fresh mozzarella

An Italian lunch/dinner party is not complete without antipasto


Everyone got a house salad so by the time we finished our second course,we were already feeling full.


Veal Marsala

Tender veal scaloppini, delicious Marsala wine sauce,and sauteed mushrooms…YES!!! Perfect meal for the bride to be 😉


Only “man” allowed at the party 😉


My bridal shower wouldn’t have been memorable if it were not for all the ladies that special moment with me <3


Intern babies <3


Us kiddos with Ms. Angel 🙂


Filipino loves <3

I am blessed to have my Filipino family here in the US. It’s not easy being away from my family, but having these ladies around me makes me forget about the loneliness sometimes.

I know I haven’t been updating on social media lately. I feel bad because it takes me ages to respond on Facebook (heck I can’t even keep up with the birthday greetings).I wish I could post more entries every week but it’s quite challenging now because the busy season at work as started, we are in the middle of packing and getting things together before we move in to our new home, aaaaand my computer is acting up. Yikes 🙁
