01.18.2014: Meaningful Saturdays

Hello, dolls!!! :) I can’t believe it’s already Sunday (insert 1 million exclamation points here). Time is moving waaaay too fast. For the past week I’ve been really busy making each day special for my family and the people that I love. You see, nowadays,  I find more gratification in making my family’s day extra special than to do the things that I love…or used to love. 

Before, I would spend my weekends hanging/dining our with friends, not that I do not like doing this anymore…but it’s just that, I feel like Saturday nights are more fun when you spend it with the people who truly make you happy.I am so over the jejecrowd here, if I want to have some drinks and go “clubbing” I can just wait for another week (or 2 since I will be in MD on a Monday) and be my crazy self there and not sacrifice time for my family.

#throwback: Cause I am excited and not sad this time

Saturday for us is all about “the” dinner. We can do whatever we want in the morning, but we always have to eat dinner together.

We had an amazing weather this past January. I know most of the people here in Manila loved it! Especially those who loves to dress up like me, cause we finally got to wear our booties!! :)

I brought most of my babies (shoes) home from the US, even though I know I would come back. I just can’t…I can’t leave them… Just thinking about how I NEED/HAVE to leave at least half of them for less than a year is already breaking my heart <////3 Anyway, so I am not really sure why I brought this pair home..all I know is God heard me when I said “I need to them at least before I go back to the US”
