17 weeks

This afternoon I received a few skin care products that I purchased via HauteLook  for babies and kids last week. Being a soon to be “new” Mommy, I have spent countless of hours browsing through the internet for safe and organic products to use on my baby. I came across “Episencial” which I tested on my skin and  completely won my approval. I’m definitely going to buy another set for my sister Ivette to use on my niece. The last thing I want is for harmful ingredients to penetrate the gentle and delicate skin of my baby which is why I love the fact that its free from additives, parabens, and petroleum.  Plus if you like the product yourself, you can use it too. :) I think I’m going to give the protective face balm for cold and dry Winter days a chance. 
Anyway, so last night I entered my 5th lunar month (17 weeks)  and I am already feeling huge. I haven’t gained much weight (I’m up to 7 lbs now) and all the weight is in my mid section.  Thank goodness the women in my family are rare to stretch marks (since they are hereditary) and I have not had any issues with that. (Not saying they will never appear). 
I am now to the point were I look pregnant (in some clothes) and it is making the clothes in my closet fit awkward and no longer normal. So a few days ago I went into “a pea in a pod” (the only maternity store I like so far) and found some really cute tops and dresses. I can’t wait until I’m at least 6 months to start shopping there. I remember I was so anti-maternity stores before but look who’s talking now. LOL.
Also check out this lovely blog I found a while ago that shows how stylish a pregnant woman can look, a very enjoyable blog. Island Chic

My 23rd Birthday

So 23 years ago at exactly 3:30 PM in Mexico this chunky little big eyed turkey was born…..LOL…
As most of you know, my birthday was last week (Aug 20th) and my childhood friends (Maribel and Selmie) came over to my house to celebrate my birthday with me just like last year.  We had dinner
at the Americana in Glendale (Cheesecake Factory) where I met up with my bestie Sonia, Kris and her lovely son Jude. I was so happy to have my closest freinds with my along with Jesse on this “special” day. I’m not the type of person to make a big deal about my birthday, which is why I have Maribel there to do so.  (We’ve known each other since the 3rd grade).
Later we went bowling to find out I really sucked at it. Well, not until the end. Jesse (WIC)  knocked them all down 4 times in a row! The host of the bowling even made an announcement through the mic and the whole room was looking at Jesse and waiting for him to strike again, and he did! So he got free drinks :)

The following day my family drove over to have dinner with me at a nice restaurant in Downtown L.A.
We came across “El Cholo”, which is a Mexican food restaurant. Even though the place looks quite authentic, the food is not “real” Mexican food, and by that I mean they only sell basics, not even Horchata.  It was great overall, the weather was awesome so sitting outside in the patio was just perfect.

In my Boyfriends Clothes, Not Literally.

Today I wore Charlotte Russe boyfriend jeans, F21 boyfriend shirt, Old Navy Sandals, Tiffany’s key necklace, Louis Vuitton bag,
Hamsa bracelet, and a Macy’s mens watch.


I’ve had these pair of jeans for over 6 months now and since today was extremely hot,
I decided to just go for the whole “boyfriend” look, baggy and casual since everything
wasn’t going to be clinging to my skin. I also wore my favorite house sandals from
Old Navy (you know, the ones for $3) since wearing heels or anything “girly” would
ruin the look. I’m actually quite pleased and very satisfied with this trend.


Pregnancy Update:
Week 15 is here and almost gone, let see…
I measured my waist line and weight this morning and I’m officially 5 pounds heavier
than 3 1/2 months ago before I conceived. I actually lost 3 Lbs that I had gained
while I was in England. My waist is now 31 inches all around! Oh my! But it looks
so cute and Jesse loves to rub it. He’s definitely a very happy father to be :)
I’ve been eating better and Jesse and I also bought the Power Juicer Pro which makes
eating healthy a billion times easier. Ugh, I’m so addicted to juicing. One last final note,
to stay in shape and for a healthy and easy delivery (I want it to be 100% natural, no
medications what so ever) I’ve been doing prenatal yoga, pilates, and a lot of walking
in the afternoon with Jesse. I feel so happy to have his support. Anywho thanks
to all the lovely mommas out there that give me constant support and tips on what
to expect with my pregnancy.

Yesterday Jude turned one year old! Jude is Sonia’s gorgeous son. She put so much
effort and it showed, everything was Jude’s favorite t.v. show Yo Gabba Gabba. This is what I wore. A purple dress from Heritage 1981, ZARA heels (a gift from Jesse earlier that day), Louis Vuitton purse, and my new Casio watch.
