Be thankful – Thursday Thirteen #17

13 Things I am thankful for the month that just passed by (APRIL)

1. Getting a promotion and starting a new role in the same company

2. Watching the APO Experience concert

3. Able to meet Apo Jim in person; twice, one in the concert and another to get his signed books.

4. Also receiving a comment from him in my APO experience post…check it out.

5. Celebrating 8 years of marriage

6. Buying a new car – Yeah…finally got my brand new 2007 Honda Civic

7. Receiving my first book from book crossing through Leah of Singapore. She posted in her blog that she has books for book crossing which I incidentally joined a month or so ago. It is a book exchange program. Read about it here. And I have a few books I’ve registered and have not released yet. Check out my virtual book shelf and let me know if you want any and I’ll mail it to you. I will update my list when I get the chance.

8. Finishing my taxes on the last minute. And I get a refund instead of paying… Now I might be able to finally get that big screen TV after all.

9. Shopping ……..I bought a few new outfits. I got this really nice spring coat from the GAP. It was on Sale…a good buy. I hope I can still get to wear it this spring.

10. Celebrating my 100th post and able to bestow some prizes to some lucky winners.
BW, you should have received the candle holders and candles by now. Rachel, yours is on its way..hopefully the Philippine mail gets it to you sooner.

11. Celebrating my daughter’s birthday. She turned 6. We had a small party with family (all 10 kids and 12 adults all together). Weather was great so we had the chance to play outside. Lots of food and good company.

12. Get together with family 3 times last month ; during Easter , my nephew’s first holy communion and my daughter’s birthday celebration

    “Celebrating my 100th post and able to bestow some prizes to some lucky winners.”

    You inspired me to do that as well on my blog. After a quick look, I found out that the 100 post was the Sunday before last. I can’t wait for the winner to find out.
