Pastel Mood N Pink Caddy


It's almost Valentine's day. My husband and I have been married for almost two years now, so we practically newlyweds. We lead busy lives and we have an active one-year-old, but we always try to find ways for date nights. Even just going for a movie at a mall five-minutes-drive away for a casual jeans-and-tshirt movie night at nine o'clock in the evening (our baby sleeps at eight o'clock every night). We enjoy being at home, so we don't go out as much as when we were still in a courtship. 

For Valentine's, we planned a romantic dinner at a fancy restaurant at a five-star hotel. It's not for us wanting to be fancy. The restaurant has a special meaning for us, because it was there where we had our first real date. We haven't been there fot a long time, and because this year's Valentine's Day falls on Friday, and we have been blessed with some extra money to spare, we decided to be fancy for a change. ^__^ 

Of course, the weather has been terrible lately and we always worry about flood and storm, so, we'll just wait and see. If the storm hits again in the evening as it's been for the past couple of weeks, then we'll just celebrate at home, which is fine with us. 

About a week ago, I got this very cute, hot pink, heart-shaped, plastic bucket from a store at a nearby mall when I went to lunch with some coworkers. What do you call this thing exactly? Toiletries bucket? Shower caddy? I don't know, really. But anyway, I used to use a used Kentucky Fried Chicken plastic bucket to stash all my toiletries. It has been like that for about four years, and the KFC bucket was just practical and effective, but it's not very pretty! So, after four years, I thougt I would treat myself and get a new one!



At first I thought I would get the usual round one, but this one stole my heart with its Valentine-y shape and cheerful color. Also, I was thinking about practicality and usage. The heart shape is actually perfect for my shower corner when you position it like this. It works much better than the round circular shape. I really love how it turns out.




Anyway, these are old pictures taken when I was twenty weeks pregnant. I can't believe how time flies! We can't even imagine what life was like before we had our baby! It's like he's always been here with us, always the three of us.
