Charlie picked me up early from work and I undertimed so we could go to SM Southmall early... Charlie bought new rubber shoes and I bought new sandals. We ate at pancake house then we bought a gift for Charlie's latest inaanak who will be baptized tomorrow. Charlie gave me a white blouse with orange butterflies in front for our 21st monthsary while I gave him a Fila backpack. We visited the Acclaim again and looked at the different butterfly souvenirs... I even bout a huricane candle with butterfly decorations. We also looked at the different invitation samples at a nearby store (i forgot the name) and got new ideas on how we want our invitation would look like... I particularly liked two of the designs that had butterfly cut-outs in front and tied with half-inch ribbons. They were a bit expensive though...

After a week of being down with the flu... I am finally up and about! And of course, I can't help but test if I have my strength back... I went with Charlie to Manila to borrow a book from his niece for my sister Mae then we went to Isetan, Recto and Charlie bought me a pair of shoes.

I woke up feeling sick… good thing today’s a holiday because I’m running a fever the whole day. My muscles feel like I just had the workout of my life and my throat aches every time I swallow. I was feeling bored and dizzy from too much sleep so I browsed the internet for more ideas on weddings… I saw these really nice yet simple flower girl dresses that I would like mine to wear.

I arrived at KFC Baclaran first and ordered Chips and Dip. I was nibbling on the chips while reading a magazine when he arrived around 15 minutes later. He was starving so he ate a super late lunch first before we started our trek to Baclaran. Actually our main reason in going is to buy beddings for Charlie but we didn’t pass on the chance to look at the shops that showcased wedding gowns. First, we looked at a shop near the church (actually right beside the Redemptorist) which displayed nicely crafted gowns. This is where my cousin Tin-tin got her wedding gown last December and it was nice naman but I want a longer, softer “more bagsak” kind of veil which the saleslady said I could get from them for an additional price. A wedding gown package would also include pillows for the rings and arrhae aside from the veil. The prices were very reasonable considering that the gowns were nice-looking and most of them even had beadwork. There were also gowns for bridesmaids that were likewise reasonably priced. Also there were quite a number of choices for Barongs. After looking at two other shops of the same kind, we went about our business of buying Charlie’s beddings. Charlie and I now have a little idea on how much we would be spending on the gowns and barongs. We would also look at shops in Divisoria but since we’re still both busy and the wedding is still months away, we would have to schedule that for later.

You’d think with all the activities I’m doing like work, preparing for the wedding, running errands and nights out I would at least maintain my weight if not lose! Unfortunately, my body seems not to agree with me! I gained weight… AGAIN! I really have to start a diet regimen if I want to look good on my wedding day! I mean I am not dreaming of having a supermodel figure (well, actually I am but I’m a bit more realistic than too optimistic) but I want to at least trim down to a size that would at least look good in my wedding pictures. Hmmm…. must remember to exercise at least three times a week and watch my food intake! Easier said than done, I know but I need to discipline myself to achieve my goal!
