So the weekend came and went, and although it was short, it was definitely filled with many small surprises, kind intentions, good laughs and love from family and friends
And thus, I would like to dedicate this post to all my loved ones ❤
Let’s count our blessings! (Monday’s almost over!)
Blessing #1: Gynae Visit
“Looks like she’s still good to wait” was the key takeaway from Saturday’s visit to the Gynae
You should have seen my jaw drop, and you should have heard the way Peas said “hhhhhuUUuuhHHH” – priceless
Wait some more?
Yes wait some more!
OOoOO the anticipation is gnawing at me – it’s like KNOWING you have this big exam to take, but the exam date is kinda lalala-up-in-the-air, and you don’t really know when it will come at you… y u p… wait some more….
But, at the same time, it’s also quite comforting to know that there’s still that few more days to enjoy couple time and uninterrupted sleep before you embark on a 21-year journey of paralysing fear and crippling paranoia being a Mom (think: “why is she not home yet?” or “why is wearing so little??!!” or worse, “WHAT is she wearing?!?”)
So I’d take “Looks like she’s still good to wait” as a blessing – and in the meantime, “good to wait” = no diapers to change = YAY!
Blessing #2: Viva Mexico
Remember I mentioned we were going to celebrate Miss Honelope and Miss P.Baker’s birthdays at Casa Latina and I would get back with a review?
Well, I’m sorry I let the team down — I was too busy shoving my face with food I kinda did not take any photos at all =)
Decided that that would probably be the last good meal before parenthood sets in – Peas and I tried to make up for soon-to-be lost time by sampling quesadillas and fajitas and (virgin) margaritas… so I totally neglected the photo-taking =P
The Mexican food at Casa Latina is definitely worth a try – I do prefer the food here as compared to Margarita’s and Cafe Iguana
Would highly recommend the Casa Latina Melted Cheese for appetizers and the Beef Chimichanga for mains
But back to my blessing #2 – it’s always nice to know that my galfriends always make time to celebrate all our birthdays – we do have a huge group of about 11 (mostly here in Singapore, some working in the States) – It’s always so nice to meet up with the sisterhood
Blessing #3: Cookies from Kady
On Sunday, my husband’s 6 year-old niece Kady came over for lunch with us – and she brought us star cookies which she baked =)
“Ghin Ghin (means Auntie) – I made these for you” – aaaawwwwww they were perfect! Kady’s always drawing and making little pieces of art for me – feeling all the love ❤
Blessing #4: Our Dogs
It rained pretty much the whole weekend – and so the dogs were stuck indoors – much to Lerzy’s dismay – Butter didn’t really care as long as she found some place comfy to sleep
Here’s a picture of Lerzy’s grumpy / not-impressed face as he roosted and sulked – how cute =)
Blessing #5: Did Someone Say Ovaltine Biscuit?
After my post “Where Art Thou Ovaltine Biscuits?”, I’ve received manyyyy packets of Ovaltine biscuits from many people – my Sis-in-law, Mother-in-law, and yesterday, my Godma =) Bliss
So touched! So now I actually have a stockpile of Ovaltine biscuits in my room to tide me for the next few weeks
Blessing #6: Bedtime Story for Sage
So Peas has been reading to Sage before bedtime – and yesterday he read a Dr. Seuss book called “Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?”
The book actually inspired me to write today’s post
My favourite quote being:
“Thank goodness for all of the things you are not!
Thanks goodness you’re not something someone forgot,
and left all alone in some punkerish place
like a rusty tin coat hanger in space.
That’s why I say, ‘Duckie!
Don’t grumble! Don’t stew!
Some critters are much-much,
oh, ever so much-much,
so muchly much-much more unlucky than you!'”
