I kept the days leading to valentines busy. (Not only at work.) I sourced/created/assembled my bridesmaids kits. It includes a letter, our love story, color palette, their roles, details on the day, and something sparkly-earrings/something sweet-chocolate covered biscuit/something pretty-face mask for the bridesmaids.
*This is not usually done in the Philippines. We got the idea from the US, as some brides assemble kits for their bridesmaids. I decided to make my girls kits to inform them of the wedding details and place a smile on their faces.
To give you a better view of all the paper inside… I customized everything! Save for the huge pink box. Those are store brought.
Gave my bridesmaids the boxes and they all loved it! *I am happy! All the effort was worth it!*
On the course of the week I also managed to do some catching up with all the lovely people in my life.
I had a lovely Fri-date with my best friend Joanna (we call each other Lupet). Finally watched a movie (that thing called tadhana) with my workmate. Had dinner with the family and got a lot of sweet (valentine) gifts!
But, not everything is rosy. My eye infection is back again, diagnosed on Feb 9 and is currently under medication until (hopefully) next week. So I’m wearing my glasses (nerd mode) the whole time!
And as always, Kei and I spent the Valentine’s day late. We celebrated it on the 15th. Kei took me out for dinner at 22 Prime. (Wow! I know! Too bad I don’t have decent photos as the place was dim. )
For all the troubles valentine brings, I made sure Kei also got something.
I got him a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Donatello toy. Very unique right? hahahaha!
*The toy was his childhood frustration. He wanted a Donatello toy, and told his dad he wanted the purple one. But for some reason his dad mistakenly got him a TMNT villain (kalaban) toy! That made him very sad!
So, that was my week.
My last valentine as a single. ❤
