No Longer 39, But Not Yet 41

I told my older brother (I have to say older coz I have a younger one, too) that I wouldn't mention his actual age in my blog post, so we came up with this creative un-obvious title instead. :p

Yes, aside from being New Year's Eve, it was also my older brother's birthday yesterday. And since I have come to truly appreciate his presence and everything that it brings - and coz I love Papa John's and pizza, in general :p - I thought it would be the best time to photo diary it up yet again. Enjoy!

The grub:

The company:

These cuties visiting all the way from Davao: Raj and Rod!

The parentals.

And the 3 generations of Rodriguez girls currently in the hizzouse.

I know I don't really mention my family on my blog much. In fact, I don't really talk about my family much with anyone. Lol. It's only recently I've started opening up about them. And only to one particular person. Coz he's special. :) Yihee. Haha. But yeah. It's mostly coz we're dysfunctional. And generally not close-knit at all.

Still, I consider myself close to my older brother coz he's the only one I can really talk to and the only one I truly feel comfortable with. I actually burst into tears last year when Dave went to Davao and I wasn't able to go, so you can just imagine how much I'll be crying later tonight. Haha.

Aaaaanyway, here's what I wore. I've been "training" my adorable lil 3-year-old padawan to take my outfit shots, by the way. Haha. Let me know what you think! :)

When in the South, comfort trumps everything else. So I tend to go for shirts, skirts and flats. Every. Time.

(I hope you still appreciate these photos despite the fact that there is no editing involved in them whatsoever. Lol. #medyoembarrassed)

I'll never get sick of Seraphim. I may not shop there a lot-a lot; but when I do, I get such awesome finds from them. Remember my superhero top from them? They've got awesome accessories, too! :)

Speaking of awesome accessories, another one of my love is Quirkypedia. Perfect for girly girls and wannabe girly girls like me. :p Check out another version of their floral connector rings here.

Since the rest of me was already super girly yesterday, I decided to go for my favorite this-is-how-I-feel-on-a-daily-basis flats from Forever 21.

prescription glasses from Four Eyes / cat shirt from Seraphim / floral skirt and black Whatever flats from Forever 21 / floral connector ring from Quirkypedia / animal print clutch bag from Bebe
As mentioned earlier, my bro and nephew are leaving tonight and I have mixed feelings about it. While I'll be more than glad to finally get my room back and sleep on an actual bed instead of on the couch that I've been calling home for the past 10 days or so; I'm also devastated coz I will no longer have anyone around to drink with or anyone who will laugh at my stupid geeky jokes anymore. :(

Sigh. I predict a spike in the iMessages that I send out starting tonight and in the plans that I make with my friends in the week to come. Anything to battle the loneliness! Lol. Fight!


  1. Like I said earlier, Awesome! This blog, not my age. :)
