What's In A Name

I just read Aggie's blog and I don't know if nakuento ko na kung
paano nakuha mga names ng mga kids.

I really liked the name Joshua. There was no doubt that
yun ang name na gusto ko. But when I saw this baby
book. Joshua- Means Jehovah's witness.
While Joshwa means God is Gracious. The second name
was supposed to be Shane. I also liked that name
kaso naisip ko wala pala syang Christian name. So
I chose the name Dominik in honor of St. Dominic

I really loved the name Adrianne there were
many names that I considered but Adrianne
was the one that I really liked. Marie
is my baptism name and In hindsight
after my SIL rin pala her name is MARIbeth.
Therese is named after St Therese of the Child
Jesus. I prayed for her intercession during my
very difficult pregnancy. Yeah I know that
her name is super long and she'll probably hate me
when she starts going to school.

Adrianne is Now Officially 1

I can't hardly believe that my daughter Adrianne is officially 1.
Where does the time go? Wasn't it just yesterday that
I was induced and that I was pushing and pushing
her out as if our lives depended on it. I even remember
that Adrianne had to stay in the hospital because she
was born a few weeks early. Her visitors were
Tita Grish, Tita Beth, Tito JR, Kuya Angelo and
Ninong Ariel.

Adrianne is such a blessing and I'm thankful
that we had a great year. I'm looking forward
to the years to come. Happy 1st Birthday Adee!!!

Suppliers Ratings

Sorry if magulo sya.. Pero wanted to share my supplier's rating.

Venue-- The Learning Center Waltermart Mall-
Rating: 10

They were really very nice and very accomodating.
Talagang di ako nagsisi na sila ang venue na
na kinuha namin.

Host--Wizzo--booked thru Apple Cabel
He was so good and very patient.
Even my husband became a fan. Maski medyo
pricey sya he was worth it. He knew what to
do with the kids na makulit.
Rating: 10

Give aways- Photomagnet- Booked thru Katrina Tan

I was a bit disappointed kasi she was late and although
she apologized to me and I accepted her apology.
I still felt bad. But it's all good. Kasi people really liked the
photo magnets. Kaya siguro ako naiinis na late sila kasi
mas maganda sana at the start of the party pero medyo
fresh pa yung mga bata.

Caterer- LSS Fastfood-
Will never even think of booking another caterer

was able to stick to my budget.
Rating 10+++

Venue Decorations and Balloon Centerpieces-
I initially was considering a lot and i mean
a lot of suppliers to do the decors. Tamang
tama nagmeet kami accidentally ni Apple
and ayun na I booked her and she did a
great job. Thanks Apple

Photographer-Tito Rekz-
I booked my uncle because gusto yung
kilala ko na yung photographer. It takes
awhile for my kids to warm up to people.
Kaya when I saw the initial pics I loved it
and he really captured Adrianne's smile.
Rating: 10++

Cake, Cupcakes and Cookie Lollipopts-- Thru Partytime Philippines-
I know I was a difficult client because I kept changing my
mind. Di ako makadecide kung ano ba gusto ko.
Kasi talagang maliit lang ang budget ko.
Nung nakita ko yung cake it was exactly what I wanted.

Ryan Torres-Face Painter
Another stress free supplier. He was early and went to
work right away. Even if di ko masyadong type na naka
shorts lang sya. I overlooked it na lang because were really
happy with the outcome and I was really happy with the

Happy Birthday Ate Beth

People are singing
All around their tombstone
happy birthday

Sorry if thats a weird haiku
or if tama ba talaga yan. That's exactly
what we did. We gathered around their
tombstone and started singing
Happy Birthday! Today is Ate Beth's 37th
Birthday. It's still hard to think of her
in the past tense. I still miss her everyday.
Happy Birthday Ate!!!! During the time
that we were singing there was a white
butterfly fluttering all around us.
I'd like to think it's her and she's happy that
we gathered to sing to her.

They took photo's but I purposely didn't bring
my camera. I can't take pictures of the tomb
it's just too painful.

When will this pain go away?
When will this longing for her ease?
I don't know if it'll get easier as time goes by.
