Bangkok Diaries: See you again, Thailand!

09.08.14: See you again, Thailand

Hello, dolls! Aaaaah. I can’t believe it!!! My last BKK post! I also can’t believe that it’s been almost a year since our trip to Thailand — and it’s the weekend again…already! August is being extra good to us, we’ve been getting extra time here and there and opportunities that can change our lives. Being a go getter and having a husband who is very supportive, A and I decided to embrace this opportunity and claim it. So yeah, I do not want to speak to soon… but we feel good about this.

I know we can’t have it all, but I’ve been dreaming about going away before we kiss 2015 goodbye. I have a soul of a traveler, going to places is something that I always yearn for.

Last days are always weird for me. I can get attached to a place when travelling — major “sepanx” alert! It’s the thought of leaving one place, leaving the adventure, leaving the “life” of a traveler and going back to reality.

I only have 2 missions for my last day whenever I travel — to shop and have a happy lunch meal at a local restaurant. (more…)

Bridal Shower: The Little Things

12.16.14: Showers of Happiness

Hello,dolls!! 🙂 Aaaah…weekend ❤ I can’t believe that I am already done with another week at work. It’s insane how we are already (almost) halfway done with August! Can you believe it? Cause I can’t! I feel like each week is just flying by and I wish there’s a “pause” button so I can just hold on to all the goodness that 2015 has brought and just enjoy it a little longer before we roll over to another year of ups and downs. Also, I am still enjoying the fact that A and I can say “oh yeah, we just got married a couple of months ago…this year.

I am not gonna lie..the thought of saying “I do” again excites me. Who wouldn’t be? To say I do to the same man 3 times in 2 years is AWESOME (and funny in some way haha). So yeah..I think it’s still fitting to talk about my bridal shower (that happened 8 months ago) since we are having our Greek wedding in a couple of weeks 🙂

One of the blessings that came with A when God sent him to me is his family. I always feel like the luckiest wife whenever we are with his family because they’ve always made me feel that I am part of the family since day 1…and of course the constant showers of love! ❤

It truly melted my heart when my Mother-In-Law told me that she wants to throw a bridal shower for me. She is one of the best hosts that I know, so I knew the shower’s going to be ahmahzzing! — and it was!

Just one of her awesome ideas for the party. Since a good number of ladies are driving to Baltimore for my shower, she ordered this cute water bottle labels for the guests to take home 🙂 (more…)

Hello, August 2015!

September 2014: Save the Date

Hello,dolls! 🙂 Aaaah, AUGUST! Can you believe it’s August already?July was eventful! I remember looking forward to the last week of July and dreamed how amazing it would be — and it was! Now I am doing the same thing with August — bust my A off during the first 3 weeks of the month at work, then look forward to the last week of August because it is going to be major. 

There has never been a day that I do not think about my family and friends back home. Last night was a fun night with my girls…how I wish I am saying this because we were all together at our rooftop laughing like crazies while drinking G knows what. So yeah…it was  crazy night on Viber and it made miss home a little more.

I also miss being a bride-to-be (oh wait, I am a bride-to-be again. ha) 

Our save-the-date, one of our Royal Albert tea seats from Grammy, and pastries from Starbucks… good morning!

I like to talk about home when I miss home.

So today, let me share with you our journey from the Philippines to the US last year when we went home for Daddy’s birthday. (more…)

10.27.14: Oh,fall

Hello, dolls!! 🙂 Aaaah I know know..it’s been waaay too long.The first 3 weeks of July was super hectic…and awesome! We spent the past weekend in New York and New Jersey — how I wish we could’ve stayed longer! Now I am looking forward to August..our Greek wedding week 🙂 Our family in New York and my 2 girlfriends down south are coming here to be with us that weekend yaaaay!

So I am really really hoping that I finish all of my 2014 entries before A’s birthday. His birthday will commence all the great things that will happen before the year ends. I never really got to enjoy (enjoy meaning.. dress up ) fall during my first year here in the US because I was too busy. Last year A and I had a lot of Mondays together so I was really able o appreciae fall.
