Happy 2014!

… 9 days late?!? Yeah, well I was faced with a series of unfortunate events. Nothing too serious, I think. Basically, I’ve been very busy and sick. Yet the holidays was uneventful, especially because TheMister had been away. The happenings during the last quarter of 2013 have left me drained and numb, which isn’t a good way to start a new year. But I am not put off. Never. I welcome all challenges that come my way. So, bring it on 2014! Of course, I’m not saying that 2013 was a bad year for me. Not at all. Fact is, 2013 had been a good year that kick-started several positive (fingers crossed!) changes in my life. And it seems that things are slowly starting to fall into place now. Well, at least that’s how I feel.

Here’s a visual recap of my 2013 holidays.

The kids and I celebrated Christmas in Bacolod City.

Then, we spent the New Year in Metro Manila.

They say change is constant, but one thing constant about me is how grateful I am for the people in my life.

Thanks for visiting. Have a great year!

Happy Birthday

… to me!

This is what I imagined I would wear…

This is what I actually wore …

I’m wearing the Mister’s sweater as a top. And, yes, lately I find myself raiding his closet more frequently for over-sized comfortable shirts..

Been missing the Mister, thus I opted to wear something of his on my birthday. 🙂

My lovely sister, Kat, treated the kids to a movie and Ella, Mum, and Cara watched the movie with the kids. Oh! And Cara gifted me with a rockin’ two-tone monokini!

Excuse the backdrop but they watched Frozen, not Robocop, and they sooo love the movie!

And, me? Well, Kat took me to a spa for a massage. Isn’t she the sweetest?

But, I was starving so we had a snack first before heading to the spa.

Style File: I’m No Angel

Wore this on a family visit to my dad’s and grandad’s resting place. We had a mass in their honor that day, for All Soul’s Day. I miss them dearly. With all the b******t that’s been happening, I wonder if they could have made a difference if they had lived to this day. Maybe they’ve been lucky. Maybe that’s just how life makes a mockery of us – well, of me. Maybe I’m just over thinking things. Maybe I’m just too tired. Maybe, maybe, maybe…
