Funny Friday

A short conversation with Hubby earlier this morning

Martin: Babe, ang laki na ni Saab no? Pwera usog.

Me: E sayo nakuha ang height e.

Martin: Buti na lang.

Me: Pero sa akin nakuha ang talino.

*End of Conversation* 🙂

Happy Friday everyone!

#NikeRise featuring LeBron James

I was not really a fan of Basketball until I met my Husband. He introduced me to his world and I was so amazed and I was in awe.

We were one of the lucky few who were able to get FREE TICKETS (insert happy face here!) for the Nike Rise which will be held tomorrow at the MOA Arena, Pasay City.

THIS.IS.SO.AMAZING! Finally, it was written in the stars. Magkikita na si Maynard Martin Vergara and his Ultimate Idol LeBron James! 🙂 I’m so happy for you babe. If only they knew na si LeBron talaga ang first love mo. hahahaha!

Before talaga nya ako ma-meet e mahal na talaga nya ang Basketball. (Talk about Ginebra and NBA)

Dati nagseselos pa ako at naiinis hanggang sa wala na ko nagawa at minahal ko na lang din ang basketball. Exciting naman pala, because of watching NBA and PBA mejo dumami ang alam ko sa Basketball, dati kasi ang alam ko lang si Jaworski kasi my Dad used to watch it din when we were kids pero syempre ayoko nun. Di ko mainitindihan. Pero ngayon, wag ka! Kaya ko na din makipagsabayan sa kapatid kong lalaki pag nagkwekwentuhan sila about NBA. haha!

I am so excited for tomorrow! 🙂 Excited ako for Martin kasi talaga, mahal na mahal nya si LeBron! Nababaliw talaga sya lalo na pag NBA tapos Clevelend pa! Ay talaga, sabe ko sayo wala yan iba naririnig at nakikita. Kaya tomorrow sabi ko sa kanya, gagawa ako ng banner para mapansin ako sa TV.

Me: Babe, gagawa ako ng banner for LeBron. Ano kaya pwede ilagay?

Martin: Wag na! Nakakahiya.

Me: Bahala ka! Gagawa pa din ako. Ilalagay ko dun, “Please be our BEST MAN.”

Martin: Nakakahiya.

Me: Babe, minsan lang dumating to sa buhay mo. These are the moments that you should not let pass you by. Make the most out of it. Malay mo bigay nya sakin yung shoes nya.

Martin: Hindi yun kasya sa’yo. Akin yun. Tapos ipa-pa-frame natin yun.

Me: O kaya, bigyan nya ko ng free tickets sa NBA games.

Martin: Wala ka passport.

Me: Kukuha ko.

So yun, tomorrow is going to be epic! 🙂 Lalo na for my husband. And I am one happy wife here. I’ll share you the details of what will happen.

Thank you Nike Rise!!! 🙂 ♥

My Take on Marriage. The Ups and Downs and the Sweetness in between.

Last Friday Hubby and I got into a fight. Just like any other couple, we’re not perfect. We have our shortcomings and flaws. We yelled, said hurtful things towards each other and in the end we realized that we can’t give up just like that.

“I love you even when I hate you. Only married couples can understand that.” – This is just one of the many quotes that I love to live by. This is from the movie, Crazy, Stupid Love.

But this is true most of the time. Right Mommies? You may say you hate your husbands or wives for one or two nights but eventually you’ll find yourself in their arms again. I have learned from that fight that my Love for Martin has grown more than I expected. Yes, there will be times that I would hate the way he snores at night, or the way he hangs the towel after bath, even the way that he cuts his fingernails. But these are just small things compared to the love I have for him.

Married Life is not easy. It is not going to be easy and smooth-sailing. You will have the Ups and Downs. The Bumpy roads. The roller coaster ride. But in between those imperfections, lies the most important thing that a couple should do.

  1. Learn to compromise. One way or another, someone has to give way and understand. But then again, it’s not going to be the same person ALWAYS. Wala naman mawawala if magbibigay ka diba? Lalo na if you know na ikaw yung nagkamali. Minsan din, LISTENING is helpful. Lalo na siguro sa katulad ko na talker. Yung tipong, sasagot pa lang sya e may kasunod na kong itatanong at irerebutt.
  2. Choose your words. Napaka hirap gawin neto lalo na pag galit ka. But then again I believe that we are all      responsible for our actions and words. Wala naman mawawala if we’ll try to bite our tongue before we let go of what we’re about to say. Try to remember the vow you had during your wedding day. Na mamahalin mo yung taong kaharap mo, aalagaan, at hindi sasaktan.. sa kahit anong paraan. Of course, we don’t want to hurt the people we love right?
  3. If all else fail, Pray. Hindi ako perfect example na Catholic. I don’t go to mass every Sunday, but then again I always make sure that my personal relationship with GOD is still there. Pag sobrang down ako at problemado and I felt that my husband does not love me anymore (dala ng period at PMS) I pray. Nagkukulong lang ako sa kwarto and I look for the prayer booklet that I have. Pero mas maganda pag tatahimik ka lang and listen to what your heart is saying. Lift all your worries and problems to GOD. Siguro this can also be the best time to think and have your me time. Promise, after a few minutes or hours okay na ako ulit. I already have the courage to talk calmly to Martin and sort things out.

Hindi talaga madali and buhay may asawa. You guys will fight no matter how perfect your relationship may be. There will be problems and heartaches. There will be tears and yelling. There will be people who will test your marriage and faithfulness to each other. But always remember, lalo na sa panahon na gustong-gusto mo na mag-impake at umuwi sa parents mo. Try to remember the day you said “I do”; try to remember the vows and promises you made to each other. Try to remember yung feeling na super excited ka pag makikita mo na sya, the kilig moments. The HHWWPSSP (holding hands while walking pa-sway sway pa) at the mall. Try to cherish the laughters you had when you had your first kiss. ♥ Those stuff, yung ganun. O diba, it made you smile. 🙂

I remember I was ranting last Friday na pagod na pagod na ako. Na I felt like I was the only one na gumagawa ng lahat. Then he said, “Then stop doing it for me kung napapagod ka na.” nagulat ako sa sinagot ko.. I told him “Hindi pwede. Hindi ko ppwede itigil yun kasi yun yung pinromise ko sa’yo nung kinasal tayo. Promise ko pagsisilbihan ka diba? Habangbuhay..” sabay iyak. I realized kasi, for me iba talaga ang vow sa marriage e. Kumbaga, one way lang sya. Di ka ppwede mag U-turn. Kailangan talaga you’ll be brave enough to take all the consequences it will bring. Tapos, I cried lang after that. Siguro dahil na din dun sa sinabi ko, it made him realize na kailangan din e alagaan nya ako, na hindi lang dapat yung mga wives ang magaasikaso sa mga husbands nila.

Ayun, the next day we went out on a date. 🙂 ♥♥♥

Sakto din na Saab went to my Mom’s house so may quality time kami mag-asawa. We went to Robinson’s Magnolia and we watched The Love Affair – saktong-sakto lang din kasi tungkol sa mag-asawa and family yung movie and I like the moral of the story. Isama mo na din na ang galing galing galing at ang ganda ganda pa din ni Dawn Zulueta at Richard Gomez umarte. 🙂 Sana you guys were able to watch it na, maganda talaga promise!

And then of course, we were back to our normal selves. 🙂

Kailangan lang talaga minsan e may quality time kayo mag-asawa. Yung tipong kayong dalawa lang doing the things you used to do when you were mag-on pa lang. Kahit nga staying at home and watching DVD is okay na e. At least you guys can still talk apart from your finances, work, kids and other problems at home. Diba? So there, I hope you guys learned something. And being a newbie in this married world, I would really love to hear your thoughts and stories to share. 🙂

Have a Happy Monday! ♥

To my Husband and to my Dad on Father’s Day ♥

I may not have the time to blog about Father’s Day this weekend as I am scheduled on an out of town trip. But of course, I won’t let Father’s Day pass without greeting and thanking the two important men in my life right now.

First to my Dad, who is ALWAYS there for me since I was a kid. I’d like to thank you Papa for being the “BEST” Father that you can be. I’d like to thank you for teaching me the importance of discipline, as a kid I felt that you didn’t love us the way that other Dads loved their kids. It’s very seldom that you play with us, you will always get mad when we get our hands dirty, you always asks us to do the dishes as a teenager instead of going on a movie. You wouldn’t allow us to go on a date when I was 15. You will always question every guy that I talked to when I was in Highschool.  You want us to be home when the clock strikes 9. You will ask us to help Mom do the laundry instead of lying in bed during weekends. Doing all of these made me realize the importance of having a Father in my life. At least there is one man who is brave enough to mold me into a responsible woman. Thank you Dad.

When I got married, and had my fair share of being a parent I was able to realize that you and Mama did a very good job in raising us. I didn’t know that this is going to be that hard and challenging to start a family. I am still amazed by how you guys were able to juggle work, family and your marriage. Thank you Papa, I can say that all your hardwork paid off. 🙂 I love you Dad, Happy Father’s Day! (Please make me hatid later at 3 in the morning) 😛 hihihi on a serious note though, I’m thankful you’re my Dad. ♥

Dearest Hubby,

Let me greet you first a Happy Father’s Day! I knoooow.. we should have celebrated it together with Saab. But don’t worry, we’ll just make bawi (probably next weekend).

Babe, you are doing a great job on being a Daddy to our little girl. You just don’t know how teary-eyed I get whenever I see the both of you having your own special moment together. My heart is melting when the two of you laugh your hearts out. ♥ That’s when I realize that I really love our family. I love seeing the three of us giggling and tickling each other until we fall on the floor. Thank you Babe, for providing us what we need. For being not “pasaway” na husband. For listening to my rants yet bringing out the best in me. For being the BEST FATHER that you can be. When we were still dating, I thought to myself that my feelings for you will soon pass because you’re not like the “boyfriend material” that I was looking for. And yes, I was right. I think you’re far from being  a boyfriend material – because you make a Good Husband and a Perfect Daddy. ♥ So yeah, you’re not a boyfriend material. Haha! 🙂

Baby, we have a long way to go in this journey. But I know we can get through every challenges that life will offer. Continue to be mabaet, understanding, funny and sweet (in your own ways). I’m sure Saab is really proud that you are his Daddy. ♥

PS

Nobody’s perfect so it’s okay to make some mistakes sometimes. 🙂 I’m not a perfect Mom too. I Love you Babe! Happy Father’s Day.

And to all Rockin’ Fathers out there, Happy Happy Father’s Day!
