when my hubby and i were dating, he came up with "me day"
i didn't know when these days would pop up
but he would pick me up and announce, "it's your day today!"
and i got to do whatever i wanted for the whole day!
i could have lunch where i wanted, do whatever i wanted, i could go anywhere i wanted
and he would have to oblige, since it was "me day".
to this day, we still have those days, but the only difference is,
it's the girls' day now
it's been a while since i have posted about our special "me days"
(see the last "me day" here: pia's me day)
a few days ago, it was zoe's me day
when she woke up i said to her
it's your special day today...
what do you want to eat for breakfast?
you can have whatever you want!
she told me she wanted chocolate oatmeal
(which is just regular oatmeal with a scoop of ovaltine)
it was a simple breakfast, but like i said,
she could have whatever she wanted!
and then for lunch she asked to have
longannisa, which is a sweet filipino sausage that is eaten with fried rice and a fried egg
it's one of her favorite foods, but we don't have it too often because even though it's pretty darn yummy it's really not too healthy!
my two sisters joined in with zoe's me day festivities
my baby sister even made zoe's favorite chocolate chip cookies
when i told zoe it was her special day and that she could do whatever she wanted
she told me she wanted to go on a family bike ride to the park
have a picnic and eat cupcakes
unfortunately the weather was not cooperating with us
a bike ride and a picnic was just not feasible in the rain
so i suggested bowling
(which is something she has been asking about)
and bowling is what we did!
pia was so funny
when my hubs was telling her what to do
he happened to mention that she wasn't suppose to step on or go near the black line
so she would run up to the line and inch her feet as close to the black line as possible
and then just drop the bowling ball
so then the ball would ever so slooooooooooowly make it's way
down the lane
zoe was really good!
she got the hang of it right away
even beating her own momma
my hubs and my baby sister even got a few strikes here and there
everyone had so much fun
my sisters even suggested that we should
do family bowling at least once a month
right after bowling we made our way over to our favorite cupcake bakery
for some delicious cupcakes
red vevet for me and my sis
diva for zoe and chocolate for pia
zoe's dinner request was for mcdonalds
from which i tried to dissuade her
i am not a fan of mcdonalds
(have you read this article?)
i don't know what it is, but all kids seem to love mcdonalds!
but i did give in, i mean it is her "me day" after all
all in all, despite the last minute change of plans
zoe had a great "me day"
and my little pia is already asking when her pia day is coming
she has already informed me that she wants "hotdogs from costco" for lunch...
