bridal shower with my girls

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

I have six blog entries that are waiting for me to pound on, and there are no excuses in blogging (not even cramming for a wedding that’s happening in about three seconds. Ay weeks pala.) So allow me to start this blog rolling again as I put my hands together in an apology for slacking off.

Because why in the world did I delay writing about my bridal shower with my best girlfriends in the whole wide world right? Here, here. The second bridal shower that I’ve attended so far, and I’m the bride! Made me think I’m marrying earlier than most people my age, but hey (soul sister), the wedding is in three blinks. I mean weeks! No time to back out! ;)

Gail and his mom Tita (soon to be Mommy) Sha helped my girls deceive me into going to Makati for a girls’ date with Tita Sha and Feb, Gail’s baby sister. I got a little nervous, because Tita Sha and Feb are Gail’s girls, and it got me thinking “Maybe they’ll tell me to not hurt Gail ever if I don’t want to lose my life.” Anyway, the less paranoid self simply said yes to the pseudo-date and marched to Makati one Saturday.

When I got to Landmark, I received a text from Tin, asking me where I was and who I was with. I told her I had a date with Tita Sha and Feb. She told me to stop where I am because she’s also in the area and has something to give to me. So I stopped at Landmark and waited for Tin. When she got there, she put on me the pinkest of all pink veils, and Eyna was there to take a picture!


So while I was drying off my tears of joy and surprise, they explained to me everything. I didn’t have a date with Tita Sha and Feb. I had a date with my girlfriends. It was fun of course, and a bit kinky because it was a bridal shower. I’m looking forward to the next bridal shower in the barkada, ako ang mag-oorganize! Hehe.

Faithful God

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

“I have decided, I have resolved, to wait upon You Lord.”

All of this – the wedding, our relationship, the interesting and beautiful things that’s been happening to me and Gail – everything is because of God and His faithfulness. Time and again, we would be pushed to the edge only to be saved by the hand of God. This has taught us to hold on to Him, to be stronger, and to rely more on His power than on ourselves. And all the lessons we learn, we learn under grace.

That blessed day, December 20, will be a testimony of God’s love, not so much of what Gail and I have done for each other. As I zoom in on this brief ten-month preparation period for the wedding, I see how God would always give His blessings at the right time, and in different ways.

Hands down to the most creative Provider of all, who gives us love in many forms, all of which are always and without fail, amazing.

Wedding dreams

Monday, November 1, 2010

I missed you blog. *hug*

Where have I been? Sleeping a lot and having dreams about the wedding. I’m sure I share the same experiences with most brides-to-be, having nightmares such as your photographer being a minute late (I know right? Really haunting.). Meanwhile, the groom has dreams about joining a team of people who can fly. Seriously? I hope I can chill like them grooms.

But what can I say? I’m a few millimeters fat for my wedding gown, and I can’t oh-will-you-relax about it. Our friends ask us how the preps are going and we answer “Oh we’re almost done.” But my subconscious thinks otherwise.

Dream 1.

We were getting married in a Catholic church. No, not the beautiful church where Gail proposed. It was in a dark, dungeon-like cathedral. But in my dream I was thinking “Wow this is my dream wedding, to get married in a Catholic church.” So I was about to walk down the aisle when I saw my bridal bouquet on the floor, wilted and yuck. And I looked at myself and I was wearing this huge puffy gown like it came from the happy ever after ending of an 80s film. in the Philippines. Starring Maricel Soriano. I was hiding behind a wall! Haha! The dream continues when after the wedding, we were all baked sweating and ready for the reception. But of course the priest had to say “You may now kiss the bride,” to which Gail reacted “YES! SA WAKAS! ETO NA ANG PINAKAHIHINTAY KO!” with clenched fists and lip-biting! Ichura! It couldn’t get any worse than that I’m sure, so nagising na ko.

Dream 2.

I arrived so late at my venue, and everyone seemed to be helping themselves to the cocktails already. Gail was still at the aisle, but he was playing the guitar and WAS NOT WORRIED. But of course in the dream I didn’t make tampo. I went to where my girlfriends were and Mariel hugged me so tight we both fell to the floor! But since it was a dream, I did not make tampo. Pagpag sa wedding gown, I went to check the decors, and que horror my centerpieces were gold candleholders with gold leaves and gold flowers! Ack! It couldn’t get any worse than that I’m sure, so nagising na ko.

Marami pa kong mga ganyang ka-absurd na dreams. On my wedding day, however, I will not mind anything else but the dashing pogi groom waiting at the end of the aisle. And my vows, maybe. And my gown, cause I might trip. And the music, of course. Oh are the guest books in place already? Yeah? Is everyone here?

So yeah, just the groom. Seriously. Just my Gail.
