Scrappy Birthday To Me...

This was the LO I finished from my last post. It's a birthday LO but it was for Marcie's first birthday.
Speaking of birthdays...I just celebrated my 26th Birthday a few days ago (September 27) & I was really happy during my special day. I would like to thank everyone who dropped by my blog to greet me & those who sent in emails & text messages too. It made my day extra special. As mentioned on my previous post, I really didn't have any concrete plans for my birthday celebration. I actually spent my day cooking & of course doing what I love... Scrapping! Hehe. So it was a "Scrappy Birthday" as I called it. I managed to finish my mini purse album that day.

We heard mass in the evening (which was an anticipated mass for Sunday) to give thanks for all the wonderful blessings I have received for the past 26 years of my life. And soon, one of my sought after wishes will finally turn into reality. I will be starting my little Arts & Crafts business soon. Thanks to dear hubby for this wonderful gift as he provided most of the capital to be used for this new venture. Thanks also to my parents who volunteered to pack the stuff I ordered from the U.S. & have them shipped here. I will be starting gradually & hopefully, if things turn out fine, I'll get stuff from more companies. I will post updates regarding this matter every now & then.

So after we heard mass I was surprised to see my cousin's car parked in front of our house. Two of my cousins were there & greeted me. They said they came to celebrate with me on my birthday & another cousin was going to visit too. Well as I've said, I didn't have any plans for my birthday! I didn't even cook dinner because I decided that we would eat out instead. As I entered the house, my sister who came to visit also was there. Now I have instant visitors & hubby & I decided to leave the house for a while to buy food. I didn't want to disappoint my cousins who apparently "ambushed" me. Lol. We bought a cake from Red Ribbon, their latest addition to their cakes... the S'mores Cake which looked so yummy!
And it tasted Yummy too!

We also bought sisig from Mila's & Pancit Canton from Dainty. So there, I had an instant party at our house. =) Well I guess it was a good thing because I had my family to celebrate with me. I rarely bond with my cousins & also my sister who now lives in Antipolo plus my brother who is in the seminary most of the time, so this was really a special day for me. We spent a few hours eating while catching up on each other's life stories, watched some DVD concerts & played bowling on my brother's Wii which we all enjoyed. Of course this day wouldn't be complete without pictures! Since I missed to post my Saturday Pic of the week... I'll be sharing more pictures today instead.

I obviously felt happy in this picture:
Finally... Here's the whole gang:
