A Snippet of My Busy Week
I am so thankful it's the weekend already. My busy week started last Saturday, and it went on non-stop. I attended Dainty Mom's fab workshop on "Your Blog, Your Bliss." It was an eye-opener for me. It made me see the possibilities on how to grow my blog and make it better.
After the workshop, I headed to Acacia Estates and attended Mommy Fleur's anniversary party. I promised her na hahabol ako, and even if I only got to stay at the tail-end of her party, it was worth it. I met mommy bloggers, whom I've met online but never in person, and some of her friends. It was so weird in an amazing way, because it seemed like we've known each other for a long time na. Hmm, come to think of it, it was my first time meeting Fleur too. I would have written a whole post about it had I witnessed the whole thing. But I missed most of it. If you're curious, head on to the posts of Kikay Mommy Sha, Aimee Diego, Arkimom, and Mommy Fleur herself.
The next couple of days, I prepared for my two-day stint as a guest lecturer for watercolor down in UP Arki. Some of you who follow me on Instagram might have noticed a few watercolor artworks that I made. Yep, that's the reason. It has been ages since I've used watercolor, and I needed a refresher. If you're looking for a tutorial, especially on flowers, go to The Alison Show's blogpost on Yao watercolor tutorial series.
Thursday, I had to catch up with helping my husband with documents for his real estate business. There were quite a number of things I had to do before the week was up. Then just yesterday, Allie and I attended SM Kids Fashion Toon Fest at Megamall Megatrade Hall. She had loads of fun! Be sure to go visit this weekend and explore the different booths (Disney, Betty Boop, Sesame Street, Garfield, and Robby Rabbit are among them). There are a lot of activities in store for you and your kids.
After that, we went with Daddy E to the office to do some stuff real quick, then decided to go home earlier than usual. We couldn't be more satisfied to be home before dark on a Friday payday. I can just imagine how bad the traffic was last night.
