Last week was mother's day and my birthday. Eversince I become a mom, I have been looking forward to mother's day. It has been my favorite occassion aside from Christmas and New Year. I actually consider it as a holiday so I make sure I'm always on leave on this day. My birthday also falls on the same month and week and I also love waking up on this speacial day. Not that they're not, but everyone are just extra happy and nice to me! :)
I admit, I love receiving gifts but I don't like being surprised. I mean I don't like the idea of people doing something/planning something I'm not part of. Yes, I am paranoid and a control freak. Anyway, I've read about Pandora bracelet before, at kikay.ph to be exact. But I though they're just bracelets with beads. I didn't know they have various charms until I saw my sister in law's and brother in law's wife's Pandora bracelets. I love that they get to choose charms. When I saw my friend's bracelet, I knew I just have to get one for myself.
I have been telling stories to my husband about the Pandora charms, hoping he'll get the subtle hint that I want one for myself. When my husband asked where I wanted to celebrate mother's day, I told him I want to go to Newport Mall so we can check out Pandora. So we did. After spending a lot of time oogling and trying out bracelets and charms, my husband said I can get one as his mother's day gift. I was beyond excited!
A few days later, my birthday came. We decided earlier that we won't be traveling on this day like what we normally do since he won't be able to file for a leave. We'll just have a simple celebration and have a family dinner. Since he had a class, my son and I just met him at a mall. I saw him carrying a small paper bag and I knew it was a birthday gift. He gave me a perfume, Lanvin Eclat, the one I've been eyeing for a long time now. Hay.. I love my husband. I love it more when he showers me with gifts. :)
