My Blessed 37th Year

Hello everyone!

Last May 1st, I celebrated my 37th blessed year. Yes, late post again. Sabi sa inyo super busy lang e, hehe.

Anyway, I just want to share how I celebrate my 37th birthday. If you are a regular reader, you will know the way we celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, holidays and other occasions. Simple lang lagi and we make sure we spend time with our family.

This year, Daddy and I talked about giving in with our wants. It's been 10 years kasi that we are living frugally. It's time naman to reward ourselves since we are working so hard. I-justify ba? Hehe. Birthday ko naman so talagang nag-isip ako ng birthday gift sa sarili ko. Haha!

However, our first attempt to buy a gift iba naman nabili namin. Ayan, inflatable pool for our little boy.

It's on sale. From its original price of almost 3,000, we got it only for 1,500 pesos. Walang wala sa ligayang nakita namin sa mukha ng bulilit na ito. Priceless!

Meanwhile, I finally bought this iPad. Finally, after 10 years ng pag-iisip, I give in. Hehe! Here's my birthday gift to myself.

Katas yan ng blogging mga besh! Really thankful for countless blessings that we are receiving. Aside from our regular work, our blogs are able to add income to our family.

Then since my birthday fell on weekdays, Daddy and I went home to have a pre-birthday celebration with our little boy and my in-laws.

He still don't want to go home until his school starts daw. We just let it be since we still don't have a helper. It's so difficult to find a helper noh? Hopefully, we'll be able to get one before Matthew's class starts, or else...

Oh back to my birthday na lang. Since we it's a week day but a holiday, we had breakfast at home. Just the two of us lang. Here's my birthday breakfast.

We will just spend the whole day at home to have some rest na lang sana but Daddy told me we'll go to the mall because he still has no gift for me. By the way, here's my birthday baon.

We walked around the mall, but I can't find a gift except for the bag I already saw more than two weeks ago yata that time. I find it expensive already that's why I was holding back. Kuripot mode on namana kasi after I bought the iPad, haha.

We had our lunch muna to think about it. Here's our lunch.

Here's my birthday date pala.

Daddy said we should buy it and I told him, yes if I still like it if I will see it again. And I still like it! I really love it and I will tell you why in a separate post na ha. Here's Daddy's birthday gift to me - Travelon Anti-Theft Signature Flap Compartment Cross Body Bag.

Hay, if I will count how my we spend already in a week, nakakatrauma. I told Daddy, kuripot mode na ulit kami. Hehe.

Seriously, when I watched this video a realized that life is too short. I must enjoy life and the money that we are earning while we can still do it. Watch it too.

Ano mga besh? Tagos hindi ba? Live simply but don't forget to enjoy life.

And to end my day, here's my dinner.

I am so grateful for everything that I have now. I am thankful to God for giving me a family, a loving husband and a wonderful son. Bonus na that I am a good career now. All I can ask is good health for my family, my friends and everyone around me.

It's indeed my blessed 37th year!
