Thankful Thursday: Holidays, Warehouse Sale, and Gift Survey

Happy Thanksgiving!

Even if the 4th Thursday of November is just a US Holiday, I still want to show my gratitude to my family and friends in the US. Thank you for the love you give to Hubs, Mila, and me!

Thanks to my company too because all US Holidays mean no work for me! No work means more Mila time! Speaking of Holidays, have you seen the coming year's Official Philippine Holidays? There's about 9 long weekends there! I don't normally enjoy them because I work the BPO Industry and Christmas and New Year celebrations are usually spent at work. Well, I have Mila now and I want to have as much family time as I can. So I learned to maximize my Vacation Leaves and filed for Time Offs next year on as may Holidays as I can. I am now looking to at least 6 long weekends for me and Mila (6 more are waiting to be approved). Isn't that something to be thankful for?

The Graceful Mist ( Got tons of beauty stuff in a super useful mini bag for all the kikay stuff and I feel the love with just the way everything was packed. So Sweet!

Techie Mom ( and Wonderpop ( Hubs love the Snake Eyes (G.I. Joe) Shirt and I'm using the cutie mug at work! Thank you!

Saabandmeelo ( and ilovehandmadeph ( A well made Cat Doll we named Meow Meow (very creative huh!) and a surprise pretty head bow for dainty Mila. Who wouldn't be grateful?

Monograms Manila ( I can't get over our beautiful name art. I'll be posting a review on the gift she gave Mila and maybe we'll share one to you too!

Finally, visit, check the products available and comment below what you wish to have. I'll be working with Santa's Elves to make it happen!


  1. So many sales so little time! If it weren't so congested I'd go shop more...

  2. I think the saying "so many sales, slo little money" works here hehehe...The braided necklace in monograms manila looks interesting! :D

  3. Love the wooden block. Haven't been shopping because of traffic and it seems all people are in the mall!

  4. OMG! Hindi na ako nakapunta sa Gingersnaps warehouse sale. Waley na waley! :( Lapit na ng Christmas and malayo pa ko sa pangarap ko. Hahaha!

  5. Aww you certainly have a lot to be thankful for! Looks like you've had a winning streak ha! Those sales look tempting. Sana may warehouse sales din dito!

    1. Oops, I almost forgot. I love the name art on woodboard!

  6. Shucks, this year is my most disorganized year! I missed most of these sales so many things to do at the same time.
    Those bracelets from monogramsmnl are so pretyy.

  7. Super lucky ka sa giveaways! I hope I can still go to the Books for Less sale at SM Manila. Our schedule (and budget too!) are all set for the Adarna Book Sale so wishful thinking na lang ang iba pang sale. I checked out Monograms Manila and the birth stone bracelet looks interesting.

  8. Wow! Congrats Mommy, Mila is BIG blessing to you. Kita mo, lagi ka nananalo sa mga giveaways. Naku, bawal kaming magpunta sa mga malls/brands na nag offfer ng mga sales, alam mo na tipid mode para sa birthday ni bagets.. :)

    Super daming holidays and long weekend next year, tama dapat ma plan na VL. :)

  9. Next year's holy week is very early. Good thing my birthday will be on a Maundy Thursday instead of a Good Friday (sad birthday, happened to me a couple of years ago).

    Your list of warehouse sales are tempting!! haha Need to control myself or someone's gonna get mad (loveydoves lol).

    As for the products of, I wish to have a Baby Name Art (Woodboard) for my 5month old Baby Boy :)

    Hay, busy mode nga talaga this month. Ako din hindi na nakabalik. But they said medyo pangit and konti daw talaga stocks now.

    Thanks May! I love the Wonderpop stuff! I use the mug at work and they had been bugging me about it.

    Fixed Weekend Off had been the biggest selling point for my current job now.
