Hello, 2015!

Thursday, January 08, 2015

Wow. It's already been a week since the year transitioned into a new one. I feel like time's flying! Did you notice the lack of blog posts for the past couple of weeks? I hope you did, because that would mean that you're waiting for my posts. Hehe!

Anyway, December, for me, is always family month. I have such a big family and being married doubled it. Married folks know how hard it can get to give both sides of the family equal amounts of time during the holidays. And Lord knows The Memet and I try to be fair every year.

So with that thought, you can probably imagine how hectic our December was.

This post is going to be what I consider a quick rundown of some of the most exciting things that we did well into January 1st. I'll leave out the unexciting ones. Haha!
December 2 - Wedding

This wedding took place in QC. The wedding reception was at Balay Kalinaw in UP Diliman. I absolutely loved the church's architecture, but I'm not sure if I can post them here, so I'll share with you these two photos instead.

I just had to share this with y'all because I love the light in this photo.

I'm wearing a dress from sesura.com :)

December 14 - Photographer Duties

Believe it or not, I'm sort of our locale congregation's official photographer now. Haha! It's an honor, but it's hard work too! See the frazzled look in my eyes? LOL!

I'm wearing a Sophie Martin dress that I've had for a couple of years now.

December 15 - Year-End Get Together

Every year, the secretariat department at our church's locale congregation has a year-end get together. We have awarding ceremonies, games, and of course, we eat lots of food. It's always a nice way to bond with each other without forms, pens, staplers, etc. Haha!

There were lots more outside, Those of us wearing pink just sneaked inside for a photo op. Haha!

December 21 - Year-End Thanksgiving

It's still our church's centennial year, and I think that's one of the reasons that our Thanksgiving was all the more special. I can't post our photos from inside the church, so here's one from the outside instaed. Too bad The Memet already shed his uniform.

December 22 - Year-End Party at One Arena

This was a last minute thing. I didn't even know that The Memet planned on bringing me to the munisipyo's Year-End Party until a couple of hours before the party itself. The party's highlight was the contest that they had wherein the many different departments created music videos. The videos were hilarious, especially the one from The Memet's department! And wouldn't you know it? The Memet and his gang won first place! (Proud wifey here. Haha!)

December 28-30 - Baguio Trip with the Family

My parents already knew about this trip as early as the 2nd quarter of this year. What they didn't know was that my brother and his wife (they live in Singapore) were coming home to go on the trip with us and that they'd be here for the New Year! We pulled off the surprise quite well and had a lot of fun in Baguio. The traffic was horrible though. It was also really cold (the temperature dropped to 11 degrees while we were there) and so most of us came home with a bad cold. Haha!

Sorry. Can't remember whose phone we used for this photo. Haha!

December 31 - Countdown to 2015 at the Philippine Arena

The Memet and I spent New Year's Eve with his family at Ciudad de Victoria where the Philippine Arena's at. Sure, Chris Brown didn't make it to have his concert there, but it didn't dampen our spirits. Bamboo more than made up for his absence (for me anyway). Hehe!

Lucky shot. Haha! I love my camera.

Love that fountain!

January 1 - New Year's at Candaba, Pampanga

We slept at one of the houses in the Ciudad de Victoria complex and the next day (January 1st), The Memet and I drove to Candaba, Pampanga where we met up with my family and my mom's side of the family. We have a huge family there and that more than ensured that our day was filled with lots of laughter.

That pretty much made up my holiday vacation. It was pretty jam-packed if you include all the shopping, the dates with friends and The Memet, all the other church activities, and everything else in between. The main reason I didn't blog as soon as 2015 said hello was that I wanted to rest. I was tired to the bone. Haha! Despite all that, I'm happy. My 2014 ended on an extremely happy note and I can't be thankful enough.

So. How was the end of your year? I hope y'all had as much fun with your family and loved ones as I did. :)
