29 January 2011

text bombardment, dozens of flowers, little notes and a steak dinner ♥

part one of our 36 month celebration was amazing..truly more than i expected. of course, with all your amazing suggestions on my last post, i wasn't short on ideas for romantic things to do for harry. 

so at the stroke of midnight, january 27, 2011, i immediately texted Harry and greeted him a happy anniversary. i then proceeded to texting all my friends to greet him a happy anniversary too (i took sweet's advice). amazingly, quite a number of my friends were still awake and gladly participated in my little favor. harry went in to work very surprised and with a big smile on his face. i too went to sleep with a big smile on my face, giddy like a teenager. the following day at work, i found my desk with a heap of flowers --- harry had three bouquets delivered to the office right after i got back from our lunch break. to my delight, he didn't send the traditional roses but sent my favorite lilies, carnations, spider mums and daisies. 


for dinner, i surprised harry and took him to a steak house. (i know a lot suggested that i cook or bake something for him but i've cooked for him several times already..hehe.) anyway, why a steak house you might ask. well, harry is a big lover of meat. so you can imagine how ecstatic he was when we walked over to the restaurant and i told him i was treating him to expensive steak. as we started the day cheesy already, i decided to make it cheesier by giving him an envelope filled with little notes ---- 18 reasons why i love him. (part two will be given on our vacation next week). reasons like, "i love you because you now love shoes as much as i do" or "i love you because you don't mind a girl who eats too much..." the night was capped off with harry driving, yes driving me home. for those who don't know the story, harry didn't know how to drive and i've been driving all this time. it's the sweetest gift from him to have made the effort to learn how to drive. (i want to show photos of the rest of our day but the camera suddenly died on me)

now on to an outfit post. this was taken a day before in ayala and i just love how colder the weather is in our city. i almost ditched this dress the last time my mom and i went thrifting because of the different layers not being appropriate for our tropical weather. with the romantic but goth-like feel of the dress, i wanted to add my toy horse and fairy necklaces, my skull ring and leopard flats to complete the outfit.


layered lace dress - thrifted
leopard flats - parisian, sm dept store
camel bag - parisian, sm dept store
horse necklace, skull and armor rings - carbon finds
fairy necklace - props
tan braided belt - pratunam, bangkok
brown sunnies - bazaar find
