A Bit of Sunshine from a Wedding

I wanted to show a bit of sunshine from our house! This is super late post since I scored the flowers from my friend's wedding.  This is one of the perks of staying up until the end of a wedding reception, you can grab the flowers from the tables as the stylists or caterers are packing up.  Most of them are more than happy to collect the flowers for you since they will just wilt and go to waste since the bride and groom's family can only take home so much of these blooms.  Just be sure not to take the vases home.  Most of the time these are not part of the wedding favors. 

 By the way, I looooove my bird vase! You can make them out at the side of the neck of the vase. I love them.  Scored again from Uniwide!

Posting before Christmas! A Halloween Party!

We have always wanted to throw a halloween party! One year we actually got to wearing costumes at home but we never got to a point where we invited other people to join in the madness.  Now that we have settled in our humble abode, there is no reason not to have an awesome halloween costume party!

First up decorations!

the most morbid kalye game ever

The show cabinet, Halloween edition!
Of course the party won't be complete without the guests! Everyone was required to wear a costume.  No costume, no entry.  It's also a good idea to have backup costumes available just in case someone tries to cheat, good thing we did not have to use the alternative outfits since everyone came prepared to party!

Chichay and Joaquin/Daniel Padilla (complete with Marty's Veggie Chicharon, Hansel 
and Lilly's Peanut Butter)

Juan De La Cruz and Rosario

Now appearing as Coco Martin with his Yammy cup of Nescafe Coffee!

Richard Simmons? Or a Random 80's athlete. :)

Julius Caesar

Tomb Raider Lara Croft

Vanellope Von Schweetz

Now I have to give credit where credit is due, everyone except for one other person knew about this Vanellope character during the party but now that I searched for her in the internet, I realize how much effort went into this costume.  A+ for authenticity! :)

Sakura From Street Fighter

The Fox Dancer from "What does the Fox Say?" by Ylvis

This day would not be complete without a great group of people to hang out with!

Next year we will definitely have another party but to make it even more interesting we can...

- Have a specific theme.  So that the costumes are not all over the place.
- Hold it at an airconditioned place!  So we won't be sweating bullets even if the costume requires you to be bundled up! :)

Belated Happy Puso Day!

So how did your Valentine's day go?  From my news feed on Facebook, I seem to notice that more people are feeling the looooove this year.  I think we have come to realize that love comes in all shapes and forms and romantic love is not the only reason that one should celebrate this day of hearts.  Well, it could be that, or that most of my friends have gotten over the Valentine's Day angst that is so common when one is younger.  The angst that makes one wear all black and stare grudgingly at each person who's holding a bear, a bouquet or a box of ferrero rocher chocolates (yes may brand talaga).

Since I am taking things easy around this time and hubby has to work, we celebrated Valentine's Day in a pretty low key manner we had breakfast out then...

We finally got an S and R card!

This is a big deal for me because this means I can just go there anytime I want and buy pizza on a whim. :)

Dear husband also made breakfast for me on the 15th.  He made paninis at home. Kasi "panini"ndigan niya daw kami palagi. Hahahaha That and we got a chance to eat at La Piadina again and we loved their four cheese piadina.  Love the grill marks! 

And it is always great to receive flowers, just goes to show that guys would go to great lengths to buy over priced blooms this time of the year.  I love it!

And the little one got something pretty too! 

May everyday be a Happy Puso Day!
