I still feel the same up until now. 🙂

The last day of 2011 for me was craaaazy! I was so busy that I even forgot to eat. Yikes! Fun and worth it are the words that can perfectly describe how I spent the entire day before welcoming 2012! 🙂
A silly (but awesome) idea hit me while grocery shopping with my family – to assemble a chocolate tower!
We used gold chocolates to resemble the tradition of “luck” in welcoming a new year! 🙂
Here are the chocolates that we used:
Ferrero Rocher for the top most.
Violet Kisses: Dark Chocolate
Gold Kisses: Almonds
Gold and Violet was the color motif of our tower! 🙂
Reeses’s and Hershey’s Nuggets
Gold Coins from Aji Ichiban and Goya
All of these are chocolates!! 🙂
My sissy helped me in assembling this tower! Took us an hour and a half to finish it!! 🙂
I originally planned to use my gold cupcake tower,but my Mom lent it to her friend so I had to improvise.
I used baking pans and the card board from the tissue rolls.
My sister painted it with gold spray paint to make it look presentable :))
The outcome really made us happy!
Everybody in our home loved it, specially our parents! 🙂
Proud with our masterpiece! heehee
Too bad our picture with Lolo is blurry 😐
Ordered Queso de Bola w/ Fiesta Ham from Merry Moo!!
Glad that my Dad loved it too!! 🙂 <3
First thing that I did when I woke up that morning was to bake!! I really wanted to do it the day before but my family and I went out so I had to put it off!
Made 2rounds and 16 mini cheesecakes! 🙂 My sister helped me by shaping the mangoes into balls and in designing the minis 🙂
So happy with the outcome of my cheesecake!! 🙂
I made paella for everyone!! 🙂 So so happy with my paella!! 🙂
Accomplishing everything is a blessing!<3
White Chocolate fondue <3
Renzo and Lolo
My Dad was very very VERY busy last December!!
He was too busy with work projects and in distributing gifts to all business contacts 🙁
The boys 🙂
If my Dad was not too busy and tired, the family trip that we planned could have pushed through ( and his eyes wouldn’t be too red on New Year’s Eve! Haha)
with mi boys 🙂
with Tita Arlene and Ate Ruffa 🙂
Very overwhelemed with their love and support!! <3
Matching outfits again with mi sissy!! <3 <3 <3
We welcome every New Year with a bang! Literally.
Uber loud firecrackers and beautiful fireworks!
My Lolo fancies buying huge and deadly fireworks every new year while my Dad loves ordering dragon fireworks worth 10-15 minutes 🙂 So it’s always a blast during New Year! 🙂
Nothing can ever beat spending the holidays with loved ones!! 🙂 <3
Such a blessing to see the beauty of each new year! 🙂
I know for sure that 2012 will be amazing and life changing! I loved 2011, it was way more than I hoped for 🙂 Can’t wait to unfold the beauty of 2012 each day! 🙂
Happy 2012 everyone! 🙂
Lovin’ life each day,
