Weekend photos and clothes rant

A few photos from last weekend- our little family went on a quick getaway to celebrate my hubby and I's very first anniversary as a married couple. We went to this quiet resort in Batangas, where the rooms and dining places were airy, and the greenery so lush! I loved having my daughter breathe all that fresh air. It was a bit rainy, and the water a bit cold, but she still enjoyed splashing in the pool :)

It was a memorable weekend, but there was a downer when we got back home. See, my mother had done some spring cleaning while we were gone and told me she got rid of some clothes. Right now I only have a few items that really fit me cause I (still) haven't lost all of the weight I gained during pregnancy and I'm hoping I'll still eventually fit into my many pre-pregnancy ones. There's this room at home where all our clothes are ironed, and those mentioned clothes of mine are stored there, and what I did was I also put there most of my favorite pre-pregnancy clothes (for inspiration).

And guess what, she discarded most of those items :( The few pieces that fit me AND my fave thin, pre-pregnacy clothes. My clothes were reduced to a small, sad pile. I can't find my favorite vintage shirt! Probably they're now property of household help. Sigh. I was really bummed but at least there were two packages waiting for me- one from Mineraux. More on that later!

I guess it's time to go clothes shopping...using my mom's credit card. Heehee!

Vanessa said...

OMG what an adorable cutie she is!! And that resort looks very nice, sorry about your clothes though... a nice mummy being a little *too nice*. She had good intentions, I'm sure ;)

♡ Nic Nic ♡ said...

sorry to hear about what your mother did. As a new incentive to lose the baby weight = new clothes :D

your baby is SO cute!!

Cheryl Anne said...

What a pretty place you visited! Your daughter is growing up fast!

sorry to hear about the clothes mishap! As you know, I can't get into any of my pre-pregnancy clothes either, and have relegated myself to larger clothes.

But the upside is that you'll go shopping and get brand new clothes. I know that once I can get back into my pre-pregnancy clothes, I'll want to buy a few (ok, many!) items to celebrate!

Ida said...

vanessa, thank you! :) that's true about my mum. i know she only had the best intentions so i didn't tell her she'd thrown out my favorites :)

nic nic, it's a pretty good incentive. thanks! :)

cheryl, she really is! :)
i'm still forcing myself into my old jeans...heehee. now being able to get back to pre-pregnancy weight, hell yes that is totally worth celebrating and deserves a shopping spree! :)
