a weekend of nothing


nothing to do. nothing productive. this is exactly what i needed this weekend. it's been raining intermittently all weekend and it's just what our city needs. saturday morning after work was spent blog surfing and just discovering more awesome fashion blogs (ie. grunge manners). if i have schizophrenia, she would be my other personality --- i wish i have the guts to dress like her and don't give a shit about society. being a fashionista is already defying certain rules here in our small city and being grunge will definitely be a cause for more raised eyebrows and head-to-toe look-overs. the next hours of my saturday were spent sleeping and waking up to harry bringing over mcdonald's cheeseburgers, large fries and an apple pie --- major junk food fest, while watching karate kid which was good but so predictable. 

here's my sunday, so far: waking up next to harry, making my sunday even better. a breakfast of eggs, spam and leftover dinner. 2 episodes of how i met your mother season 1. sunday mass at 7:00 AM. caramel sundae and pancakes. and ongoing DVD marathons with harry. he says this may be a glimpse of sundays in our married life. if this is, sign me up as i'm packed and ready to go!

ps. it's funny two competing fast food chains in the philippines are just right across each other.  if i have to choose, i'd choose mcdonald's over jollibee. i hate mayonnaise in my burger. haha!

Catching up on DVDS and tv shows are def a nice way to spend a nice Sunday morning :D

You look so cute, btw! :D Love the nice pattern on your dress :)

I miss Jollibee! :p They have them here in San Jose as well! :D McDonalds is classic :)

Ann said...

Yeah--I've noticed that here in the Phils. When you see a Jbee store--just look around--and expect a McDo right across the street--that's Pinoy competition girls,=)

Oh..I love how you spent ur weekend..Me and the boyf do that too--but we watch CSI Miami marathons naman,=).

You look well rested and pretty, girl=).

PS. I dont like mayo too--I prefer my cheeseburger from Mcdo--but spag from Jbee=)

Dress and accessories are so so cute! My dad grew up in Manila, actually. My grandparents LOVED to eat at Jollibee's so we heard a lot about it when they moved here.

Melissa said...

ANN said...

If I tried to dress grunge over here people would think I'm either trying way to hard to be badass or I'm a wannabe "scene kid" hahaha. I think you dress cute the way you do! Your dress is so pretty!
