Life Lately as a “Bridechilla”

Yep, just like that, almost six months have passed without any activity on this blooog. Haha!

But I’ve great news, since the last time I blogged, I got engaged, reserved our wedding date and church, went to a bridal fair, booked suppliers for our wedding, joined a wedding-related online group, bought our launching pad — yes, I’m officially a BRIDE-TO-BE!!! ❤

(And those are just the wedding-related stuff… I still have other things going on in my life! Whew!)

Anywho, contrary to what most people think of brides-to-be, I’m NOT a bridezilla (and I pray I won’t be one! huhuhaha); I’m more of a bride-CHILL-a = a cool, calm, and collected bride-to-be! Wahahahaha!

Just a quick update (mostly as a personal reference), since I got engaged almost four months ago, we’ve already accomplished / booked MOST of our major suppliers — let this be a checklist for fellow bridechillas out there (oh yeah!):

-wedding date

-wedding budget





-reception venue

-bridal car



-lights and sounds

-photographer and videographer



-bridal dress designer

-female entourage dress supplier

-bridal accessories

-hair and makeup artist

-wedding coordinator (on the day only)


There are many others that we haven’t checked off of our list yet, but I’m thankful to God for all the guidance and provisions. Planning a wedding (even an intimate and simple one like ours!) and preparing for marriage are not for the faint of heart, and I’m grateful that me and my fiance (yaasss, Ish isn’t just my boyfriend anymore!!!) are very hands-on with everything.

Also, let this be my simple way of saying that I’m probably going on another hiatus on this blog. I don’t know, maybe the next one you’ll read here is a review of my suppliers. Or our honeymoon baby (I’m claiming it in Jesus’ mighty name!). Or a combination of both. Only God knows.

All I know is that my life lately has been a challenge of balancing time for work, family, friends, finances, fitness, wedding preps, etc. But overall, I thank God that He’s at the center of it all.

Speaking of faith, please pray for me and my fiance, Ish, as we attend the first of our many marriage preparation seminars next week! Rest assured that I’m also praying for whoever you are reading this. God bless! 🙂

HE Is Worth the Wait

Reblogging this because I totally agree! ❤


It is so easy to become eager when you are expecting something. Especially when you’ve been waiting on it for a while. We fantasize and obsess, creating a tunnel vision in which we see nothing else except for that one thing we know will bring contentment and joy and even security. Nothing else matters until the dream in our hearts become a reality in our lives. We exude so much passion in pursuit of that next job/career, that house, that car, that relationship… There is nothing wrong with going after any of these things but nothing guarantees that they’ll be worth the wait and truly satisfy us until we learn to trust and wait on God. My dad used to always sing this song “There is no satisfaction without salvation”, and never did I truly understand it until now.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they…

Because I’m WORDY… And WORTHY, Too!

If you’re one of my loyal readers (a.k.a. my family, boyfriend, and close friends! HA HA HA), I bet you’ve noticed SOMETHING just about NOW! After being The Lady of The Lady Is In for almost seven years, I just suddenly felt like I wasn’t that anymore. Feelingera lang. Haha.

To cut the rambling short, yep! This is just a quick announcement to tell you that I’ve rebranded to Wordy and Worthy. From this entry/post onwards, I won’t be writing as “The Lady” anymore. I’ll simply write as ME — Mika!

WHEW. Now that THAT’s out, I can finally breathe a sigh of relief.

‘Til my new wordy post on something worth writing about. Can’t wait. 😛
