Ah November, here you are!  You came too fast from last year.  Because November is my birthday month, I've been reminiscing over the past year, my blessings, my accomplishments, my failures (just so I could focus on how to correct them and make it better) and my life in all its aspects: family, friends, career, including this blog.

To celebrate my birthday with my family and closest friends, is more than enough (although an out-of-town or an out-of-the-country trip would be nice too.)  Just to share, here was how I celebrated my birthday last year:

A Shakey's Monster Meal Deal Celebration with the Family

I love the feel of dining in at any Shakey's Pizza restaurant because it feels so familiar and it greets us always with a warm welcome.  Staff is efficient and always smiling.   It's a family pizza parlor that makes any family member, young or old, feel comfortable.  That's why for lunch last year, I decided to have it at Shakey's.  Because I really love their Monster Meal Deal as I've written in my previous post, we ordered the same.  Monster Meal Deal is good for 10-12 persons, it's very filling, it's value for money and it's very practical.

For Shakey's Monster Meal Deal, here's what you get for only P 2,199.00 (dine-in price only).

That's me, a PIZZA LOVER!
3 Pitchers of Coke Products, 2 Large Pizzas (Pepperoni and Manager's Choice)
Chick n' Chips Party Pack
2 Platters of Pasta: Spaghetti Supreme and Carbonara Supreme
Because it was my birthday, I got a FREE Raspberry Sherbet!

A Post-Celebration with Friends 
Through the years, these bunch of people are just there for me, in ups and most especially in downs.  I love them.  I don't need a hundred unconcerned people, just a handful of sincere and trust-worthy people would do! :)

Counting the Blessings and Birthday Plans

Recalling what has happened in a years' time, I consider myself very blessed.  It's been said that to appreciate more how fortunate you are, you must count your blessings.  Forgive me for counting some:

  • My entry for Anvil Awards won and I was awarded early this year.
  • I successfully launched 3 promo tie-ups and a lot other projects for the company.
  • I started a Mommy blog in July and so far it's doing great!  I love writing and sharing.
  • Hubby and I celebrated our anniversary.
  • My entry for the Philippine Quill Awards won an award recently (could not disclose yet)
  • Band gigs keep coming at least twice a month.
  • Our house renovation was completed mid this year.
  • I finally got a personal life insurance and investment policy.
  • And so on and so forth...
In the coming days, I will be celebrating my birthday again with my family and dear closest friends.  Hubby asks every now and then what I want to do on that day.  I don't have an exact answer.  All I know is I am on a birthday leave from work, that I intend to have a blog giveaway as my way of thanks to my readers, followers and supporters and to spend a simple day with them and some friends.

To all November birthday celebrators, CHEERS to us!  Have a fruitful one!

Care to suggest what I should do to celebrate my big day?
