Round 3, Baby!

I just want to share another meeting-slash-surprise-baby-shower for our little sailor, this time, from my friends in the industry aka my team, the best team, non-trad team. 

We were called for an emergency meeting last Thursday at Slice to update the performance of our team since our boss, Ms. Ris, is on leave. 

I didn't know that they were plotting something for me and prepared special, crafty pieces of baby things for me care of Janice, the queen of DIYs!

A tower cake made of rolled diapers and a bicycle made of baby towels, mittens, bonnet and more diapers! :)

Surprise at Slice!

Thank you, team, for listening to all my parinigs about this. Hahaha! I wish Lanz and Jess were here. Please do take care of my accounts when I'm already on leave. I love you all!

Baby Shower for the Little Sailor

I'm on my 36th week now. By next week, my pregnancy will be on its full term and it means that I can pop out anytime. I'm about to give birth to my most precious one. What a wonderful journey. <3

Last week, another baby shower was thrown for us made possible by friends and family. It was an idea brought to life--a sailor/nautical-themed party for our little sailor. Our sincerest thanks to those who came to celebrate with us the coming of our child, and wished me a safe delivery. Thank you for your time, much appreciated! It also felt like an advanced birthday celebration for me and Paolo. My thank you's will never be enough! 

Blue, red, stripes, and boats. <3

Cake made by Chef Allan Tolentino and cupcakes from our dear Kimonei. Thanks, guys!

My best friend was the earliest bird!

Girls and soon-to-be-moms! :)

High school represent! 


Again, few more weeks before we get to see little Paolo, little Pujo, our baby, our little sailor! Please pray for my safe delivery. God listens!

Sparty: Serve the Goddess by SeriAsia

How sweet it is to be pampered right at your doorstep. Serve the Goddess by SeriAsia does that!

Another relaxing treat was brought by this mobile spa during my nautical-inspired baby shower. It was such a sight to see your home transformed into a spa haven. Serve the Goddess, as it name says, served us as if my guests were real gods and goddesses--and if only pregnant women are allowed to be massaged, I will definitely be one of the first people to be served! But for now, I am so thankful with the services offered by Serve the Goddess during our celebration, it made all our guests feel so special.

Let me take you to a pampering journey brought by Serve the Goddess by SeriAsia, with special thanks to Ms. Jen Manuel. :)

The garden was transformed into a massage haven!

The super maalagain and mababait na therapists setting up the scene.

You know I love details.

Our guests got to bring home some special souvenirs: SeriAsia products. Aromatherapy at its best--for free!

And wait, there's more! Fresh fruits and drinks were served every after session. How sweet and refreshing.

Friends and family enjoyed every minute of it. 

I never really imagined the possibility of bringing wellness, relaxation and spa experience right at home. Thanks Serve the Goddess by SeriAsia for hosting our baby shower, and of course, for being with us as we celebrate the coming of our first child.

Surprise Madhatter Baby Shower

My Monthly Period friends are always the sweetest! To be honest, I never knew how it feels like to be surprised, and by that, I meant I was never given a surprise party.. at all. If not all the time, I'm the one who connives with friends to surprise a fellow friend.

And so on our way home from Marriott, Toto begged me to accompany him SOMEWHERE, when in fact, we agreed a week before that that he'll visit me. Paolo, Toto and I ended up watching Iron Man 3 altogether even if it wasn't planned at all. I had to say yes because, yes, it's Iron Man, and it's not any other Avenger I know. After spending so many hours out, Paolo and Toto finally thought of going home (it was so hot, I super wanted to take a shower!).

I turned the lights on, and to my surprise, floating balloons with messages hanging from the ceiling welcomed me. Colorful foods were also served on the dining table. I opened my room, SURPRISE! Mia, Aiza, Ahyin, Caren, Kay and Jec were all there. Welcome to my little sailor's mad hatter-themed baby shower!

"Disclaimer" foods!

Lesson learned: Dapat laging ready, bawal haggard. 

So lucky to have these people!

I love you, Monthly Period!

Thank you for throwing the first baby shower for my little sailor. Your messages will be forever kept. And if you're excited to see our baby, I'm sure he wants to see all of you, too! I will be forever grateful to have you as my truest friends. Iba talaga pag high school.

Bump, Baby Bump, Bump

Someday, when our little sailor's no longer little, I will show him how he looked like inside my tummy, and how big the bump is I carried him.

During our wonderful staycation at Marriott Manila last Labor Day, mister and I had a mini photoshoot session to document my 35 weeks tummy. It was so random, we didn't even have a peg, but the photos came out wonderfully. 

Here are some of my favorites:

A couple of weeks to go before my pregnancy goes full term. I love you, little sailor! You will soon be welcomed happily by this beautiful world.
