Pool Party

My nieces had a blast today. We had a mini pool party. Since we don't have a real swimming pool, we used 2 inflatable pools. Here are some photos taken today.

Cousins and nieces

I prepared some chicken tacos, chorizo-cheese quesadillas and four seasons punch with diced apples. Sis prepared chips and dips. We had 3 dips; guacamole, salsa and beefy cheese. Yummy!laparlapar We'll surely be doing this again!

Purse talk

I received this from Dee of Tales From The Mom Side . Thanks for tagging me again my dear friend!

The rules are as follows:

1. Post a picture of whatever bag you are carrying as of late. No, you can't go into your closet and pull out your favorite purse! We want to know what you carried today or the last time you left the house.
2. List how much it cost. And this is not to judge. This is for entertainment purposes only. So spill it. And if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, we'd love to hear it.
3. Tag some chicks. And link back to this post so people know why the heck you're showing everyone your bag.

This was the bag I carried the last time I left the house and went to Rizal Park for a photoshoot session; Ykaie's baby bag. lol! I didn't take my own purse with me because this bag was heavy enough for me to carry another one. I just put my wallet, hanky and cellphone in my pockets.
It is a Php600 bag bought by my sis Peach.

The contents of the bag:
Ykaie's clothes, ( other clothes are in the laundry) 2 cameras( canon point and shoot and canon rebel xti), diapers, baby wipes, baby bottles, milk, baby powder,hand sanitizer, shoes, socks, a brush and comb, atomizer with water ( for Ykaie's hair) a box of hair clips and bows, headband, safety pins, a container of assorted cereals which Ykaie loves to munch on, Clover Chips and juicy fruit double mint gum.

Outdoor Photoshoot

We went to Rizal Park today ( me, sis and Ykaie) for Ykaie's outdoor photoshoot. I wanted a grassy and flowery background but was disappointed. I thought the Orchidarium was a perfect place for the shoot. Inside the Orchidarium is a butterfly paradise, there's a mystic lagoon, waterfalls and a man made rainforest but sad to say it was closed today.I was only able to take a photo of her outside the place. But I didn't like the smell all over. I think people were peeing on the grass. gigil I just took a shot and headed to check out the Chinese and Japanese garden but it looked like there was a drought so I was not able to take some solo shots of Ykaie.

Outside The Orchidarium

I brought a few clothes so Ykaie can change but she was only able to change 3 times. We headed to The Martyrdom of Dr. Jose P. Rizal. It was green ang grassy enough but no flowers. sedih

I decided to take a few shots of her in her royal blue tutu that I made.

Rizal Park is so huge.We were not able to go around all over the place because we were already tired from walking. Ykaie wouldn't pose, sit down, stand up nor wan't to be left alone anymore. I had to catch some ants for her to follow my directions. She is fond of watching and playing with ants. lol sengihnampakgigi But she did enjoy visiting the children's playground.

A Perfect Blend of Friendship Award

Dee of Tales from the mom side awarded me with "A Perfect Blend of Friendship Award. Thank you for this award Dee!

I get to meet new friends through blogging. I never knew I would enjoy it this much. Though we don't see each other in person, it feels nice to just keep in touch. Who knows, maybe we'll be able to meet someday.

I've been blessed to have wonderful friends I have known since high school. We go out and bond once in a while. Though some of them live overseas, we still get to see each other when they visit Philippines. Same goes with my buddies from college, though busy with family life we keep in touch and go out if time permits.

I'm suppose to pass this to 10 people but some of the ones I know have already been awarded. I'll just pass this on to 6 blog friends. I'm not sure if they have already received this award before but please accept this award Nadine, Tinay, Jhari, Sera, Kristie and Sharque. Thank you for being my online friends!

Personalized gift box

I bought this bracelet and cellphone charm for my friend who will celebrate her birthday on Sunday. She will treat me out and my other friends to a full body massage.Yay! I need a body massage so badly! lol

I decided to create a matching gift box. I got the template from alenkasprintables. I designed the gift box in photoshop, then had it printed by sis.

I cut out the moon and used a double sided tape for dimension.

Here's the finished product!
