July was a crazy month! I wish I could say that it was because I had so much fun celebrating my birthday the whole month, but it’s mostly because things have been super at work. And when I mean SUPER – it could mean both good and not-so-good.
The highlight of the month has to be my birthday. I didn’t get the family picnic I had wanted to celebrate this year, but that’s okay. I had my family with me and all is well. There was this crazy idea of taking our growing family up to Tagaytay for a nice picnic. It would be a nice outing for our Beloved Prince, I’m sure he’s missed running on grass.
Why didn’t we go? Dad went on a business trip to Barcelona that week and his flight back was due in that Sunday afternoon. It would have been a logistical nightmare to get him to join us in Tagaytay in time for dinner. Another consideration was the weather. July has always been a wet month and this year was no exception. The creek overflowed two Saturdays in a row, including on the day before my birthday. Picnic on the grounds while raining? No can do.
This is how it looked outside our gate on July 21st (photo courtesy of my cousin Che):
In July I also went a little crazy with the shopping. This year I’ve been a little better when it comes to prioritizing what I spend on, but with everything going on, I think I felt like I deserved some retail therapy. Christmas in July indeed!
That’s my Super Sale Bazaar loot. I didn’t get to do a reveal post (I still might!), but that big paper bag held Alfred’s gift for me this year:
The other bag held my Erzullie finds. A plus-size brand was the last thing I thought I’d discover in that big bazaar, but it was a welcome discovery indeed. I went home with a peplum skirt, a plain blue blouse, and flattering blazer. Hello outfit!
Before the month closed I had spent time with two friends with dragon babies in their bellies. We also attended a bittersweet reunion with old work friends. I had read two books, and even got to see movies (read all about them in Between the Covers). I also had a haircut, but two hours after the salon visit, my hair looked just like the way it did before I went there.
I had blogged 56 goals for my 101 in 1001 challenge. Not proud to say that I haven’t accomplished any of them yet, though this is the beginning of having a monthly review on the blog. Dropped 171 comments all over the blogosphere, 29 short of my 200 comments goal.
Before the month ended we also received fantastic news: Alfred has been promoted to the Team Lead role! Yay boyfriend! I am very proud of him, and wish him all the best in his new role. Of course, I’ll be here to help him in any way I can.
What were you up to in July? Link me up on your round up posts will you?
The first day of August isn’t even over yet, but it’s already shaping up to be another amazing month. Looking forward to much more.

Other stores were charging astronomical amounts to ship the items to Spain. t want anything
to negatively affect their BBB rating. Forget about pet hair about the furnishings as well
