So-Busy Saturday! (Whew)

August 14, 2011

I am so tired from everything that we had to do today. I will not even write so much about it because even just typing hurts my brain.

First was OC Mom In Manila’s baby shower. No pictures from me, but all the DIY stuff that her friends prepared were so adorable and so touching. They’ve always been that way since college! Had so much fun.

Then we had to attend my friend’s twins’ birthday party in Makati. The theme was Star Wars. They had stormtroopers!

And the kids were led by a Jedi master through their training. Can we all say “feel na feel”? I love it!

Their mom, Malou, went along with the fun and dressed up as Princess Leia.

I love the care and effort made on the details. Award!

Tummies full, hands painted and face glittered, we headed over to All About Baby in Rockwell. Please come and see the LATCH exhibit, which will be moved into the mall and shown till the end of the month. Photographed by Stanley Ong.

Whose bright idea was it to put me on the same panel as Bianca?

And of course, the shopping finds.

The perfect in-the-car and in-the-stroller pillow for Basti. And believe me, I’ve looked everywhere!

The Spinkie pillow, designed by mom Mutya Laxa Buensuceso, made in the Philippines.

This batik outfit for Basti from the Indigo Baby booth.

If you have to know why I bought this outfit for Basti, here is why.

Like father, like son.

And I went home with something for myself.

Michael Antonio’s shopping bag gets full points for “audience impact”.

Basti was still bragging about his painted hand when we got home.

So tired!

    Hi Eliza! We went to the All About Baby Fair yesterday also. I pointed your picture out to my husband when we were looking at the exhibit. I told him you’re the one that influenced me to buy the Steripod hahaha! 😀 We didn’t go to Mommy Milkshake anymore ‘coz we got so tired from yesterday.

    I said the same thing to Kris! I was so excited to see you, I totally forgot to take a photo. Wow! You still have a photo I gave you 30 years ago?!?!? Galing naman! But we should take another photo of us soon, don’t you think? Ü

    Hi! i enjoyed reading your blog just now while searching for entertainers for my son’s birthday next month. May I ask, Do you know who the entertainers of the star wars party were? I would love to get Clones and have a Jedi training session for the kids. Hope to hear from you soon!
