Introducing 3 Men & A Momma!

Hi there!! After 10 years of blogging, I've finally made a decision to go a step further. I've always wanted to have my own domain and I'm just so happy that finally I am able to! My plan was to focus on the new baby and abandon this blog but then I realized that I don't have the heart to. Why? This is the very first blog I owned and a ton of memories are written here. (Uhhmm. Please don't back read my writing is so terrible back then that I can't help but cringe upon reading them! Eeek!! But anyways, there's always a room for improvement right?) I would want to transfer or migrate my posts to the new one but I don't know how to do that, for now. I can always Google it though when I have the time.

Please do come and visit my new blog if you got the time. 


52 Week Challenge (#1 Why?)

For the past couple of months, I've been working part-time for a couple of bloggers and that being said, I've been exposed into the blogging world again. It seemed like my dying skills for blogging has been reborn, resurrected! I've always wanted to go back on track because this has (always) been my way of keeping sane during the stressful moments of my life. I literally blogged my stress away! Yet, like any alibis, I can't find the time for it these days. :( While I was working yesterday, I came about this 52 Week  Challenge. Yes I know, I'm  way too left behind but I want to do it still even though I’m getting off to a late start! You can't stop me, NO!

So now, why? Simply because I want to be back on track with blogging and revive this blog. I have this blog for 10 years and I won't let it die. I may be blogging for years, but I'm no pro. There are so many things to learn and discover! I want to connect and make new friends too! Also, I would love to go through my entries when this year has ended. So that is why I am accepting this challenge. I'm still starting with week #1 because I wouldn't want to jump over 28 weeks! 

This is it! I officially welcome myself back to blogging! I can do this! :)

When it rains, it pours!

Hello there! It's been a while and I really miss blogging. We had so much going on this month and I can't believe how time flies so fast! I cannot share everything though in just one blog post but let me share my current state of mind, I am utterly THANKFUL! Thankful for all that's been happening right now. I had my shares of dark times too that I even thought of getting myself a bottle of 5-htp to stabilize my emotions (plus the weight loss benefits!). I really believed I was in the brink of depression. But just like what they always say, there's a light at the end of every tunnel!

It seems surreal seeing our dreams slowly turning to reality. The joy I feel triggers another feeling deep within me, fear. Fear of losing it all. Fear of hoping too much. Fear, fear, fear. :| There are times that negativity eats up all the positivity in me! That's the worst trait I have by the way and I am thankful that I have a husband who's a total opposite. :)

THANKFUL! I cannot stress it enough! I thank the Lord for finally granting our prayers! All our hard work is finally paying off.

"Thank you' is the best prayer that anyone could say. I say that one a lot. Thank you expresses extreme gratitude, humility, understanding."

Weekend at Pahumutan, Marilog!

On weekends we usually go to the mall and let the boys play and have dinner at our favorite restaurants, that's how we usually unwind.  But this time, we decided to join my mother-in-law at her friend's rest house in Pamuhatan, Marilog. Marilog is a mountainous area which is about an hour away from the city. It's a perfect escape from the noise, pollution and the city fuss. Being an asthmatic, I was so overwhelmed when I smelled how fresh & crisp the air was. The only problem though was that it was pretty cold up there. You know, I don't do well in cold places because it takes my breath away, yeah literally! But seeing how beautiful the place was, I didn't really thought about how cold it was or how steep the stairs I had to climb going up the rest house. I was just in awe with nature's beauty. It was such a beautiful place. :)

What I immediately noticed when we arrived were the flowers. Every flower was in full bloom! There were dozens of poinsettias, dandelions, sunflowers and others that I didn't really recognized. They were all very pretty!! The photos I have taken doesn't do enough justice on how beautiful they were! The main attraction though was the beautiful statue of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal housed at topmost area. There she lay in her humble chapel, beautiful and heavenly. 

With my boys. :)

Father & son moments!

We only stayed until 8 in the evening since it has gotten really cold by then, my lungs was screaming for air! I would have loved to stay even for a couple of days. It would be really nice to witness the sunrise, to have coffee with hubby, to take more photos, to go hiking (I won't mind how steep it gets, I have my inhaler with me anyway!), and to pray the rosary to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. The owner, tita Lily has so many amazing and miraculous stories with the statue of Mother Mary and how she was able to develop this magnificent place from scratch. I'm looking forward to going back to this lovely place soon, very soon.

What a beautiful weekend it has been!
