Celebrating our First!

Anniversary, it is of one the most celebrated occasions in the world and luckily J (husband) and I get to celebrate our first ever Wedding Anniversary last June 30, 2013. It wasn't the way we originally planned it, it was just simple but a very special one.

Originally we planned on seeing a movie, then a full course dinner bu the bay plus an hour luxurious yacht cruise along Manila Bay. Sounds so romantic right? I actually saw this on Metrodeal, from Php11,000 per head to Php770 great deal right? But as much as I want it, we didn't do a reservation as early as then, we were thinking about sudden turn of events. Which is a good thing because just few days before the 30th we found out that my in laws wont be able to look after the kids as they have some business to deal with. Plan A is out of the list, now for Plan B we just thought of taking the kids out with us.

By the way, I just have a quick question for all the ladies. DO you agree that Us, ladies are "hopeless reomantic"? Haha, naghahanap lang ng kakampi 'coz yes I am guilty as charged! So to prove that though I am not bragging about it I personally had some hopeless romantic DIY anniversary gift ideas for J. I actually thought this through few weeks ahead, but didn't get the chance to do it until a day before our anniversary. Yea cramming has been my thing since school days. lol

So here's what I did, I recorded a video of myself singing. No I am not a good singer but I can sing and the song of my choice I COULD NOT ASK FOR MORE the message of the song is really good exactly what I am feeling. I was able to record several videos and just picked the best and uploaded it on my facebook page tagging J to it exactly 12MN. I actually uploaded 2 videos, a solo performance of yours truly and the other one with the kids as they woke up while i'm recording, I found it cute so decided to include it. Afterwards, I proceeded with the next DIY surprise for him, and ended up almost 3 in the morning. I was also expecting husband to arrive from work that time, but received a text message from him instead that he wont be able to go home right that moment 'coz it's raining so hard so I just went to bed and slept.

With barely 4 hours of sleep, I was awaken by J's arrival it was just past 6 in the morning. Although I was still sleepy I was delighted by what J brought home...A bouquet of red rose and chocolates, my husband knows me so well :) Syempre kilig naman ang lola mo :)What I appreciate the most was his effort, imagine it was raining and it was so early still he found a way to surprise me.

He also saw my surprise and there was a moment of lambingan and exchanges of thank you's, then J went to sleep na. I wish I could to but the kids already up so i need to attend to them. J woke up almost 2 in the afternoon na and since it was still raining we just decided to have our late lunch delivered. We ordered the Big Barkada Meal A (good for 3 pax) from Greenwich, which incudes 1 Double Thick Hawaiian Overload Pizza, 3pcs Crispy Glazed Chicken, 3 Spaghetti Supreme and 3 regular softdrinks. The delivery was actually quick we didn't get to wait that long.

So that's how we celebrated our Anniversary, not as grand as what we planned it to be, but everything turned out so well. Simple, yet special, we didn't get to spend so much plus we are just in the comfort of our own home. How about you, how was your anniversary celebration mind sharing it? :)
