National Breakfast Day


McDonald’s is giving away free Egg McMuffin sandwiches on 18 March 2013. I first heard about this on The Pickiest Eater in the World‘s FB page. I have to admit I was a bit jealous that it will only happen in the Philippines but apparently it’s not only in the Philippines dare I say it’s world-wide?

I grew up with McDonald’s breakfast, my earliest memories of it is when my parents used to bring my sister and I to Greenhills, San Juan for their breakfast menu on the weekends. I remember that it made me one very happy chubby little girl. Even now that I’m an adult, when I go to McDonald’s to have breakfast it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. As a parent, I tried to influence my sons (Adrian in particular) to have that special memory with McDonald’s breakfast like the one I have but sad to say he would rather eat his breakfast at home where he can have rice, egg and ____ (whatever breakfast meat I feel like serving that morning) than to have breakfast with me at McDonald’s even if they have a play area he can use. I guess I’m now considered “old school” of our generation today.

Let me know if they’re celebrating National Breakfast Day at your country too!


Mommy’s Day Out

To keep me from going insane. I try to go out once a week after dropping Adrian to school, instead of going home to do chores. I have a nice and relaxing breakfast (with Aden), sometimes I make an appointment for an overdue pedicure and/or go to the mall and do some window shopping (sometimes not just ‘window” hehe). My husband doesn’t mind this so much as long as he doesn’t know exactly how much I spend! haha

Mind you I don’t go overspending and maximizing his credit card, a simple blue shirt or something to help me organize my stuff makes me over the moon happy, that’s not so bad right????
