daughter moment

i'm having one right now.
i'm in the middle of sorting what to pack and out of the blue, i came across a bagful of these:

these are some of the beanies i gave dad.
i used to give him one everytime he needed to be at the hospital.

"Never dreamed that he would be gone from me
If I could steal one final glance,
one final step,
one final dance with him
I'd play a song that would never, ever end
'Cause I'd love, love, love
To dance with my father again..."

one week to go + wedding gifts

i will be flying back to see my husband in exactly a week. weee!! like always, the long flight does not excite me at all pero isang ambien lang kapat nyan, ok na. mom has been very vocal about her excitement to the point na nakukulitan na ako sa kanya, hahaha! i don't know but for some odd reason, i haven't really been excited during the past week about the wedding.. do not get me wrong. i am very much looking forward to seeing my husband again. but it's probably the cake supplier issues and our mishandled civil marriage documents (that we paid for and never got!) that pulled down all the adrenaline in me.

however, we are blessed with people helping us out in dealing with such dilemma. thanks to you for helping us iron out issues with the cake lady! and to ninang nilda and ninong manny for taking time in getting our documents from toronto :). problems solved. and today... i'm back on the roll, packed wtih all the giddiness in me! soon as i woke up today, all in my head's about the wedding... and even my fortune cookie for lunch made me think more about it:

yesterday, i started receiving wedding gifts from people here and that kicked the excitement back in me! here are some of them:

now as if those were not enough to excite me, i found these when i took my lunch break and walked over to the hospital's giftshop:

aren't those perfect to hold our unity coins (round) and wedding rings (heart)? definitely a good find at the hospital (of all places, ahhahah!)

haaayyy.... now i'm dying to go home and get married!
