As usual, wonderful ideas from Glamourweddings.com! I just SO love that site… They have plenty of nice and creative ideas to spice up our Big Day!1.) Monogram All you have to do is go to this site. Choose a background color and a text color. Enter your initial and your groom’s then that’s it. Wait for 2 seconds and you’ll find it in your mailbox! Ain’t that great. I forgot to tell you… this is FREE! That’s the best part!
We might use it as a sticker for our wedding invitations.
Ang cute diba?
2.) GuestbookWe already got a guestbook but I am rethinking of having the same one. It’s absolutely gorgeous and unique! Click here for more information about it. This costs $65 + $15 for shipping. That would be around P4,000. If you have artist friends, you can have them do it for you instead! (That is Jamie’s idea!) ^_^
Instead of having an ordinary guestbook, you can have your guests put their finger print in the branches and sign their names in it. Awesome right?
5 cans of Spanish sardines (I use 555, it think it is the cheapest)
500 grams of Spaghetti
Salt and pepper to taste
This is so easy. You can do this in less that 15 minutes. Boil the pasta as the instruction says. For some, boiling takes 2 minutes or longer. While you are doing this, in a separate pan you can already cook the sauce. Sautee the garlic, add the Spanish sardines and tomatoes. My mom wants to add cream on it. You can do that too. Sardines are already cooked, so you are merely heating it.
Drain the pasta and serve it in a plate with your Sardines and add grated cheese!
Ang dali diba? =p
*Recipe c/o Aisha!
I love being in the kitchen not because I cook a lot but because I love eating!
As I approach “The Big Day,” I know that learning how to cook is a skill I should learn to master. I didn’t even know how to cook rice until a few months ago. (oopss)
It would be nice if you could also share your journey in learning how to cook! And perhaps post some recipes you’d like us to try! =)
A can of cream of mushroom
A can of mushroom
This was supposed to be a can of cream of corn and asparagus plus a can of chicken chunks. When I went to the grocery store I didn’t find these ingredients so I just came up with this recipe. Hehe..
Fry the chicken fillet with butter. Set it aside. Slice the mushroom and simmer it in the cream of mushroom. Then that’s it… Add salt and pepper to taste. More pepper would be good.
As an alternative, you can use a breading and deep fry. =)
Serve the chicken and put the sauce on top.
Aren’t wives and wives-to-be supposed to know the answer to this? So here, let me share with you the answers I gathered from my friends…
-having a beautiful daughter
-the key to our happiness is “sharing” and discovering new things together (sharing even if it is painful)
-accepting who I am as a person
-I am happy when I see her happy
-in a crowd of people you have to stand out, not just physically, just like the first time he laid eyes on you (how? by being true to herself, know your value)
-wife’s home cooked meals :)
-discovering and learning are part of the fun :)
-respect from his wife
-good natured and submissive wife
Prior to finding the right mate, I believe we should “be” the right mate first. I totally agree with “knowing your value” and realizing your worth. Making him (your husband) happy is a result of you being happy with yourself first. =)
I am so glad I came across the 5 Love Languages! It helped me know myself and my partner more. More importantly, it helped me learn how to show I love Bert the way he would feel loved! =)
Words of Affirmation Actions don’t always speak louder than words. If this is your love language, unsolicited compliments mean the world to you. Hearing the words, “I love you,” are important—hearing the reasons behind that love sends your spirits skyward. Insults can leave you shattered and are not easily forgotten.
Quality Time In the vernacular of Quality Time, nothing says, “I love you,” like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there—with the TV off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby—makes your significant other feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed dates, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful.
Receiving Gifts Don’t mistake this love language for materialism; the receiver of gifts thrives on the love, thoughtfulness, and effort behind the gift. If you speak this language, the perfect gift or gesture shows that you are known, you are cared for, and you are prized above whatever was sacrificed to bring the gift to you. A missed birthday, anniversary, or a hasty, thoughtless gift would be disastrous—so would the absence of everyday gestures.
Acts of Service Can vacuuming the floors really be an expression of love? Absolutely! Anything you do to ease the burden of responsibilities weighing on an “Acts of Service” person will speak volumes. The words he or she most want to hear: “Let me do that for you.” Laziness, broken commitments, and making more work for them tell speakers of this language their feelings don’t matter.
Physical Touch This language isn’t all about the bedroom. A person whose primary language is Physical Touch is, not surprisingly, very touchy. Hugs, pats on the back, holding hands, and thoughtful touches on the arm, shoulder, or face—they can all be ways to show excitement, concern, care, and love. Physical presence and accessibility are crucial, while neglect or abuse can be unforgivable and destructive.
