Long Weekend Hangover

Wow, I can't believe it!  Finish,  no more, wa' na long weekend.  Just like that, it's over!   How did you spend your long weekend?  Well ours was jam-packed, busy, but a lot of fun!   I spent most of my time with my family, my bosses aka my three boys.  So here's a weekend kwento through photos.

Saturday morning was spent at the mall with the whole family.  We had lunch at Greenwich then went grocery as well.  This is what we had:  A Barkada Feast that's good for 3-4 persons for only P499.00!  What a deal right?  We had Chicken, rice, 2 types of pastas, a pitcher of drink, and a double sized pizza.

That afternoon, I went to attend my blog idol, Mommy Fleur's #MommyFleurDay to celebrate her 4 years of her successful and entertaining blog.  I was late and left early but my short stay was worth it!  I even took home some raffle prizes and a yummy souvenir cake! :)
Attended the super successful and fun #MommyFleurDay where I met a lot of other beautiful women!
Saturday nights are always devoted to my other passion which is singing.  We had our regular gig at Luxent Hotel in Quezon City.  It's the day of the week that I get to dress up fancily and put some make up on.  I love performing and I'm blessed that I'm given a chance to go for my passion and share my talents by entertaining guests. :)  Here's what I wore that night:

The following day was our usual Sunday family bonding.  First we attended mass at San Beda in Mendiola, had lunch at Robinsons Magnolia in Quezon City, took the kids to a play area where they had so much fun and made friends with other kids.

After coming home from our usual pasyal, we visited hubby's parents, where we never failed to eat super yummy home-cooked meals and snacks such as below:
Pancake topped with 3-flavored Ice Cream for merienda at the in-laws
Cousins get to see each other and alam niyo it pains me to see them each holding a gadget and play individually but all together in a room.  So I took away all the iPads, tablets, mobile phones and gave them a pen and paper to draw.  I organized a drawing contest kuno, successful naman.  I made a rule that each time we'll get together, they shouldn't play with any gadgets.  I'll teach them piko, tumbang preso, langit lupa, lahat ng games na nilaro natin nung mga bata pa tayo! :)
Drawing instead of gaming using gadgets, hindi na kasi minsan nag-uusap-usap ang magpipinsan
Monday was a Heroes Day and the #MillionPeopleMarch day.  I was supposed to go with my BFF Karina because they sponsored food to the rally goers.  But as soon as I woke up, my kids asked (actually kinulit ako) if they could have a date with me.  Tinuturuan ko na kasi ng concept ng "date" si kuya, para maaalala niyang AKO ang unang date niya EVER! :)  The little one naman has been bugging me to ride the choo-choo-train daw.  Of course ang malapit lapit sa Thomas the Train concept ng train is the LRT.  Took them to Araneta Center Cubao to have breakfast, hubby is at work kasi, and the little boy was thrilled sobra!

We went around Gateway Mall, took them to the indoor mini-garden and just spent precious time together.  Whenever I would go to a store, the little one would grab me and say: "Mommy, stop that!  Get out, let's play!"   So kahit sale, STOP talaga.. gora with the little boy and play!  Here were the highlights of that super fun trip:

Went home around lunch time, pagoda cold wave lotion ang mga bagets.  While they were resting, I remembered that we had a birthday party to attend to at 4pm.  So when they woke up, I got them dressed for the party and si hubby Mac was surprised na may plan na naman ako to go out with the kids!  Lakwatsera daw ako.  Hindi kaya! :)  

Birthday Party at Shakey's Quezon Avenue, Quezon City
Ang saya saya ng party, that was in Shakey's Quezon Avenue.  I'll be blogging about the details too!  Anyway, to end the very busy but super fun long weekend, Mac treated me a body massage and foot reflexology after the party.  Sobrang sarap!
