[Zei the MOM] Babypalooza!!

Tomorrow marks my maiden attempt at bazaar-ing. :) Will be one of the mommy vendors at the Babypalooza Bazaar tomorrow 9am-5pm at the Walter Hogan Conference Center at Ateneo. Will be selling mostly Zia's pre-loved stuff which are in mint condition since she used most of them once or twice only. Feeling both excited and nervous. Really hope I get some sort of profit, kahit small lang. :) 

I love how bazaars are evolving - like there are special bazaars like Babypalooza that provide moms a venue to sell their preloved stuff (others will be selling brand new stuff too). Hopefully lots of people drop by. :)

[Zei the charmed one] These two

These two are the reasons why I have a skip on my step each and every day, a smile on my face and an optimistic outlook in life. Because I have them - my husband and our daughter, Zia, I feel I have everything. :)

And because Christmas is just around the corner, I can't help but feel so giddy to be spending it with my favorite people in the world. :)

So to my husband and baby girl, thank you for being my happiness. Always. :)

Hope everyone's enjoying the last few weekends before Christmas!! :)

[Zei the charmed one] My take on weekends

This will be a quick post. I'd just like to share with you guys my simple take on weekends. I think weekends were made to make us feel how blessed we are. If on weekdays our life is all about work, the little stresses in between, some whining and asking and everything you could think about that doesn't involve the calm and relaxation that weekend brings, weekends give us that needed break to clear our minds and bring us back to the basics - the essentials - Family, love, fun and faith life. So there, I'm thankful for weekends -- but then again, I should feel blessed everyday and not just on weekends. :) You guys should too. :)

[Zei the MOM] Halloween Highlight

I've never been fond of Halloween... until this year. You see, to me, Halloween was just a marker that my favorite holiday -- Christmas, was just around the corner. But this year, because of our sweetheart, who manages to be more adorable by the day, Halloween has become a legit holiday for me. :) It's actually not Zia's first Halloween, although she was too little last year, we dressed her up as a caterpillar and a ladybug, but she seemed cranky and uninterested. Fast forward to this year, she more than obliged to have us dress her up. She went trick-or-treating like a pro despite being a first timer. Add to that, she knows how to walk on her own already and she likes clutching on to anything, so it wasn't difficult to get her to walk around and ask for treats. :) No tricks for this little girl. :) So here are some photos of our little Halloween Highlight, also known as Zia. :)

Our baby girl - as bat-cheeks. Hehe. :) 
This is just the first of many Halloweens our sweetheart. We still have a lot of years to decide her costume for her until she chooses to be a sexy devil or a sexy pirate, which I saw teens don this Halloween - until then, we shall stay away from those and stick to the cutesy ones. :)

Hope you had your own Halloween fun and hope you also had time to spend with your family and loved ones for All Souls and Saints Day.
