The Simple Things Just Are – A Celebration of Our 6th

27 Dec

“The simplest things are often the truest.” – Richard Bach

If you ask about our relationship, our marriage and ourselves as a whole, I would probably describe them in one word: “simple.”  The husbo and I, we are not comfortable with all the grandeur, the excess and the complicated things in life.  We have always been happy with what’s simple.  Thus it’s no surprise that we celebrated our 6th with a simple date.

Merry Christmas!

24 Dec

From our hearts to yours, a blessed Christmas and New year!  The husbo and Wifey will be back to regular programming soon.

Room Renovation on It’s Way!

21 Dec

Whew!  We just arrived home from the Dapitan Arcade where we bought some home stuff…well, more like room actually.  Today we bought several oil lamp burners for the room, plus a box for my accessories.  You see, our room right now is very bare and needs a bit of cheering so the husbo and I are planning on some room renovations for the entire 2011.  That’s our goal.

We need more stuff for the room and my mind is just bursting with ideas.  I want a rounded table to showcase our pictures topped with a flocking overlay 60×60 which would really look elegant!

I’m also thinking of changing our bed frame to match the overall theme of the room.  On top of the headboard I want a poppy painting with pastel that would add a splash of color. And on a corner of the room, some over armchair tables would be nice.

Oooh! I am giddy with excitement! I can’t wait to see the finished product. Don’t worry though, you know I’ll post some pictures here. 😉  I will rest for a bit. My feet are killing me from all that shopping we did!

I’ll be back soon to post about our anniversary celebration.

Today We Turn 6.

18 Dec

The husbo and I have been married for 6 years, been together for 13 years.  It has been a wonderful journey and we look forward to more.

The husbo is out in the kitchen, cooking me breakfast (isn’t he the sweetest?) Let me leave you with this note I wrote in Facebook, a few days shy of our 13th year.

I’m here in our room, silenced by the thought of how time can pass by so quickly and yet feel like it was just yesterday.  I woke up early today but I really don’t mind because I woke up to your call telling me you miss me.  Those 3 words, that simple gesture made my day so bright, my face hurts from smiling. It’s funny in a way because just before I went to sleep, my thoughts were about how, in less than a month’s time, we will be together for 13 years now.

13 years.  Wow.  How did time pass so quickly?  I looked back on all those years and my mind and heart were filled with fond memories.  I remember the night you sang to me and told me you loved me.  The times we spent just sleeping on your couch, enveloped in each other’s arms.  Even then, we were such homebodies we never really cared about going out, as long as we were together, we were okay. (or were we that poor we couldn’t afford it? hahaha!).   The times we cried together over our arguments.   So many memories, not all happy ones, but they made us strong.

We’re not perfect but we complement each other.  We don’t see eye to eye often but we compromise.  We sometimes get lost in the hussle and bussle of life but we always find ourselves looking in each other’s eyes at the end of the day.  There are days when we are silent, no words are said, but our hearts do the talking.  We’re not perfect people, but we are perfect for each other.

You are my best friend.  The one I go to when I feel lost and down.  Whenever you see me crying, you can always stop my tears by your embrace and the words: “wag ka na umiyak, nadudurog puso ko pag nakikita kitang umiiyak.”  When something great happens in my life, you are the first person I think of telling.  You laugh with me and get excited for me.  I may get lost and wander around from time to time, but you will always be the one I come home to – always welcoming me with open arms.

I could write so much more but it would take a lot of space here.  You already know how much you mean to me, how much I love you.  I just wanted to shout it to the world! 🙂

I can never imagine spending my life with anyone else but you.  Here’s to more years of love! I love you!

Joyeux anniversaire Husbo! Je t’aime!





The Connection – Time’s 2010 Person of the Year

17 Dec

“I can’t believe my aunt has a Facebook account!” I thought, while browsing through her pictures and wall posts.  I am stunned because she was never the techie type and I would never, in a million years, imagine seeing her online.  I am amazed at how this social networking site has connected me and my family, who are scattered all over the world, in just a click of a mouse button.

One Survivor. One Victor. A Fight to Death.

15 Dec

The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins. #1 New York Times Best Seller

“…I know the other’s survival means our own death.” – Katniss Everdeen

This is the reason for my absence.  I gave in and bought the trilogy because I thought, if my friend was right about how good it is, then I better have all three books on hand.  She said she was dying of anticipation before the third book came out.

The story is set in the future and starts in one of the poor Districts of the post-apocalyptic world of Panem, where a powerful government called Capitol holds power.   Panem rose out of the ashes of what was once known as North America. Continue reading

Random Babbles – Blah Day.

10 Dec

The Wifey feels blah today.  Does anyone get those days where you’re just not in the mood for anything?  What do you do?  I am all for positivity, but I think everyone needs at least like a pass for days like these.  I’ve got so many things to do and yet I haven’t got the mood to do ’em. So here I am. Writing some random babbles.

Random Babble Number 1: Weekend was a blast.  Starting with an all day rest Saturday, then finally getting back to running early Sunday.  I was able to run about 2kms non stop.  I know that’s lame but asthmatic that I am, it’s already an achievement.  Headed off to Starbucks after the run for some bonding time with my little sister and then we shopped ’til we dropped at a Bazaar.

Random Babble Number 2: Because I was feeling blah last night, the husbo and I ordered some pizza and mojos from Shakey’s. Comfort food did it’s job for a while. So much for running! 😛

Random Babble Number 3:  I am heading out for work in a bit but I don’t feel like it. 😦

Sorry for the negativity, but I guess it’s just one of those days.  Husbo was supportive all the way which is something I really love about him. I miss him.

Okay I got it out. I hope my next post will be the opposite of this. 🙂
