Tales of the Unexpected

I was so ready to spend my morning in 10a Alabama to meet Apol Lejano-Massebieau and learn about Etsy and Beyond where she talks about How to Build a Creative Online Business. But then, as it turns out, the universe had other plans for me today. First, our yaya didn’t return in the morning as planned.  I prepared our breakfast of toast and scrambled eggs and iced coffee for me. After that, we decided that Daddy and Lyndel will tag along with me to 10a Alabama. It will be Lyndel’s first ever train ride. Just as when we were on our way out, Lyndel announced that he’ll make poopoo (yes, I know! Of all times right? haha) and so we waited for him and washed him up. I even tried to get away with the washing and offered wipes instead (hahaha) but my super maarte son won’t allow it. And so, by the time we finally went out, it was already five past 11!

I realized I wouldn’t make it to 10a Alabama anymore. Apol will be wrapping up the session by then.   When we were already at the train station, we just decided to stop at Araneta Cubao instead and head to Gateway. And here begins our unexpected adventure –  Lyndel’s awesome train adventure!!! 🙂 [Read more…]

A Child’s Imagination

I came up with these slides for a presentation on one of the events that I handle, Kids Play Day 🙂 I got the images from Getty and added some copy points. I love these slides so much because it reminds me of my then boss who passed away before my Kids Play Day event last year. 🙁 He loved these slides. It’s just so simple but it speaks a lot.

Christmas moments 2011

This was our Family Christmas dinner a year ago. Lyndel had just started being independent.

Our DIY Christmas

”I’m participating in the Spend-Less Holidays: Saving While Savoring the Season Blog Carnival, hosted by The Frugal Fil-Am and Dainty Mom. We’ll be sharing our tips on how to spend less this holiday season, so that we can have a more meaningful Christmas. Please scroll down to the end of the post to see the list of carnival entries.”

Last year was our first Christmas in our new home. That means, new home = moving in expenses + renovations and other unexpected expenses. So naturally, when the holidays rolled in, we really didn’t have that much budget for any Christmas decorations, trimmings and all that jazz. But silly old me Chrissy-mas-tree never wanted to succumb to the no-holiday-cheer atmosphere in our home. Besides, it was Lyndel’s first Christmas (well technically second but last 2010 he was still in an infant so he wasn’t really aware of things yet) and I wanted it to be special for him somehow.

Hello world! 🙂

I’ve been absent in the blogging world since February and I miss it so much. So much has happened and I have a lot to share 🙂 For starters, why don’t we watch a video of my little boy as he “reads” What’s Fair is Fair (A Muppets storybook)?

Enjoy! 🙂
