Update..

So I have once again abandoned my poor blog. If it makes any difference the holidays have made it very difficult to just sit down and write. I know, I know that's not a valid excuse but excuse my absence. I'll definitely try to make up for it on the next coming posts. Since my last post, I have celebrated my 29th birthday, Thanksgiving, me and my hubby's together forever anniversary (we've been together for 7 years in the dating years), and Maximus' 10 month (this does not even include all the other events).

During the past weeks, I have spent most of my time working, trying to plan my bubbah's first birthday and not too mention all the Christmas shopping. I am proudly to say that the planning is just about done with exceptions of tiny little details that will need to be managed when the time arrives. I'm just about satisfied of the final designs of his invitations and I decided to go with a Superhero theme - Super Max to be exact!

Aaand with all these events going on, my hubby and I are in the process of finding a place of our own (I'm so picky, I just hope it's not an impossible task). Don't get me wrong, I like living with my parents in this big house and the convenience of a baby sitter, however, my hubby and I love our privacy even more. It was nice that my parents helped us save, but I cannot wait to finally just be on our own. I am even more excited to start shopping for furniture (stay tune for more post on this).

Till the next post, I leave you my last crappy Blackberry photo of Maximus (I am now an Iphone user)... 10 month photo of my big bubbah! He doesn't like the flash :)

Wish List

Well as you may have read from my previous post on how absolutely obsessed I am with the month of November... hehe it's my birthday month! With that said, unlike last year I came up with a wish list. This wish list is not specifically for my birthday but for Christmas as well. I'm one of the lucky winter babies who was born just one month before Christmas (this means I get two gifts and not just a combined birthday/Christmas gift) haha!

This list is in no particular order, as you can see, my list is on the pricey side in hopes that black Friday would be a successful one...


Nikon SLR - I think this is a great investment. Now that I've noticed how fast Maximus is growing up, I would like to capture every minute of it.

Diamond wedding band - I suck! I lost my wedding band while I was pregnant due to swelling. Not trying to make any excuses but yes, I blame it on the swelling. I can't wear my engagement ring because it doesn't match with my gold replacement. =(


Macbook Air - ok, I might be a little over my head on this one but I sooooo want one. I dropped the Macbook Pro a couple of months back, so my brother took it with him to LA to get it fix and now I'm stuck with a Toshiba. I can do wonders with this laptop. Maybe after our Hawaii vacay? A gift to me & my hubby for our 2 year anniversary...

Marc by Marc Jacobs Bag - If I don't get this for my birthday or Christmas, I'm getting it for myself. It's my baby bag. I'm tired sporting a Petunia Pickle. I love how there's pocket on the sides (great for bottles). I especially love how it's nylon, so I don't have to worry if it gets dirty or wet.

What is she thinking?

I'm not sure if anyone noticed but I am officially back on the blogging world. One of my besties (Auntie Myrna) inspired me to write a lot more. She says she loves reading my blog.

Remember back in May when I blogged about how I looved how the new mom Kourtney Kardashian was dressing this past spring? You can find the post here. Well, I'm not very sure that I'm in love with her winter trends right now. I'm not sure what has gotten into her lately, but I am definitely not loving some of her decisions. Not too mention that she is way too thin, so thin that her clothes does not look very appealing on her. She's in New York (fashion capital) for goodness sake! Although, there we're a few outfits I loved but majority just did not look very cute. You be the judge..

Holidays (my favorite time of the year)

Wow! Was it just me or did everyone notice October went by super fast? Now it's already November! One of my favorite months (ahem the month of my birthday), and it holds the only day where there's million of excuses to eat whatever you want and absolutely no limitations (that would be Thanksgiving day). This year my birthday happens to land on Thanksgiving (whomp, whomp, whomp), sorry but I was not looking forward to this. Not to mention everyone greeting me on a holiday which reminds me of how older I am getting (29 years old), but having to spend it with all the relatives was not the most idealistic. I would actually prefer to spend it more intimate with my two boys, but I guess more people the merrier, right?

This year, like last year, I really don't have anything on my birthday list. I haven't been to the mall in almost one month. Well I did stop by H&M today after the Giant's Parade to grab a couple of small essentials. Does that count? I've been really good trying to manage our money for upcoming events and vacations and this means no shopping every weekend. I can totally recycle some of my winter pieces from 2 years back (clothes that I couldn't wear last winter due to my over weight pregnant self). The only thing I would love to receive would be a new designer baby bag, I'm so over due! *hint hint hubs*

So many things to look forward to in the next coming weeks, did I mention that Christmas is next month?

Sleepy Dragon

This year for Halloween was surprisingly a fun one! I guess a huge factor was Max (kiddies always makes a holiday much more wonderful). It made everything so festive and picking out a costume and eating Halloween candy was my favorite part. I had no idea what to dress Max this year, I was torn between a puppy or spider from Pottery Barn. I finally decided with the puppy but with my luck, all the sizes we're all sold out. A procrastinator such as myself did not surprised me one bit. I researched for more costumes and stumbled upon Old Navy. Not only their costumes looked cute but they we're budget friendly (SCORE!!!!). I also loved how warm they we're which really helped in this cold October night. Here are some photos of my little bubs (aka Max the sleepy dragon). I call him the sleepy dragon because half way through trick or treating, he fell asleep. LOL

The old me vs. The new me

I looooved watching scary movies, not just frightening but the gory kinds (I seen the first 5 Saw movies!), now I can't even bare to see the Paranormal Activity previews. These days, Twilight Saga are the only movies I can watch. LOL

I never hesitated to drop $100+ on a pair of shoes or $500+ on a handbag, now I always think twice to spend more than $100 for a whole outfit (I rather shop for Max than for myself - sad but so true!)

Every weekend used to be wining, dining and going out to dance the night away, these days, weekends consists of grocery stores, parties or gatherings, and Costco (occasionally date night with my hubby - love those moments!)

I couldn't miss an episode of MTV's The Hills, now I can't miss an episode of Bravo's Housewives of Beverly Hills or New York.

YSL/Louis Vuitton handbag was my preferred choice and now sport a Petunia Pickle baby bag! ha!

Hennessy and mix drinks was my preferred drink when I partied and now I cannot stand the smell of Henn. I can only have the clear drinks but definitely my preferred choice is the bubbly! =)

My hobbies used to be shopping, shopping and shopping, well now it's baking, event planning and more baking. =)

Being a wife and a mommy definitely changed my life, not for worst but for better. I am much more responsible, very much domestic and taking a whole new way of life. I love my new life and wouldn't change it for the world. Before having Max or being married, the only thing I worried about is having the latest sunglasses or bag, well now it's the little things such as making sure we have dinner on the table, making sure our laundry is done and most importantly Max is well taken care of. I cannot wait to see what the future holds. =)

Patches of pumpkins

I can happily admit that I wasn't very much of a Halloween person nor very festive. I think as an adult, I only dressed up once and that was a couple of years back as a french maid. It was certainly amusing but just wasn't my fortay. Now being a mother, I can completely understand how this holiday can be so much fun for the kiddies. Candy, costumes, and pumpkins... what else can a kid ask for!

Last weekend, my sister and I took the babies to the pumpkin patch and it was definitely a memorable moment. Both kiddies we're amazed by the orange objects and at first very shy. Soon, they seen all the children play and began to play around as well. They both had a blast and came home with tiny pumpkins that they picked all by themselves. As you can see by the photos, they had a grand time!

Baby boy birthday

With all the wedding talk, I forgot to mention that my baby boy is turning one in the next couple of months! I cannot believe that I am planning his first birthday when just a few months ago, I was holding him in my arms at the hospital. I can honestly say, these past few months flew by and now understand what other parents mean when they say, "Capture these moments, because they will go by faaast." Boy, they weren't kidding! =)

The past couple of weeks, I have been diligently trying to find a perfect theme. I had many ideas, but if you know me, you know exactly how indecisive I can be. At first, I wanted to go with a circus theme but realized that it was way too common and decided to go with a cookie monster theme. For a couple of weeks, I was set on this theme, but I came to a conclusion that Max doesn't even like watching Sesame Street!? If you know my bubba (he loves Micky Mouse, Little Einstein and Barney) lol, so the idea of Cookie Monster flew out the window. I was now back on square one. Finally, I had an idea. I would go with a simple theme that every boy would love to be. *Hint*Hint* That's all the hints I would say for now.

Now that I had the perfect boy theme, I needed to decide my color scheme. I had two ideas in mind. I wanted to go with the common blues and grays or go with the more neutral yellows and add a masculine black or gray to that mix. For now, that's all I came up with. Hope you stay tuned for the next couple of posts...

Back to paradise


I've been terribly busy the last month, with work, parties, weddings and not too mention weekly orders of cupcakes and desserts, my life has been nothing but on the go. I can finally now sit down and blog about upcoming exciting events.

I am proud to say that my little sissy has decided to take her nuptials to paradise! The most exciting thing of all is she asked me to help her plan her amazing paradise wedding. I was truly honored! I cannot wait to go back to the Islands (not too mention that she chose the best month of all - I will be celebrating my two year anniversary on the most beautiful location I've encountered.) She chose to get married at the same location where I got married and I honestly got goosebumps! Not only I get to celebrate my wedding anniversary in Hawaii but now get to experience another fabulous wedding.

With wedding planning experience, we were able to book her venue, caterer, florist, bartender (open bar is definitely a must) and one of the best DJ's on the island. This upcoming months, we will be working on booking her photographer, Day of Coordinator, videographer and hair & makeup artist. I cannot wait to blog about wedding posts, it brings me back when I was planning my very own wedding.

Giovanni Shrimp Trucks, Leonards Malasadas, shave ice, Mondo Gelato, loco moco here we come! =)

Ice cream, you scream!

Hands down, the cutest thing I made! Thanks to Bakerella, I decided to try her ice cream cake pops and with little practice, I must admit, they turned out quite adorable. It turns out that they are much easier to make than regular cake lollipops. All you need is little patience! LOL I made these for my dearest friend's daughter. I had no time to take pictures so I stole these from her guests. Enjoy!

Busy much?!

So lately, I've been sadly ignoring the blogging world... I know, I know how rude?? LOL But the past month my oven has been on over drive and been blessed to be getting orders left and right. I've been meaning to take photos of my goodies but never had the time to take sometime to take photos of the finish product. I will surely remember to take photos of my orders this week (I'll be making cake lollipops for my sister's mother in law).

Here goes a recap of my lovely busy month (Each weekend was booked with orders or family functions):

I was honored to bake my goodies for my lovely friend's daughter's 1st birthday. I baked her pear cheesecakes, bibingkas and made ice cream cake pops. Sadly I was not able to take pictures of them but managed to steal some from her family's pictures. (Another post coming soon)

I was asked to bake for the Pistahan Festival (Filipino event) and managed to bake 250 cupcakes and 50 jumbo cookies for the whole weekend. I can honestly I was pretty exhausted by Sunday night and just wanted to go to bed.

Attended a birthday party and a bridal shower all in one weekend. (I was actually happy that I had a baking break this weekend).

With all this baking, I managed to work Mon-Thurs in the corporate world which has me exhausted by the end of the day. Gotta love my life right now!

With that said, there are so much events and celebrations to look forward in the next coming month.

Attending a wedding in Seattle and a much needed small vacation (You all know how I'm obsessed with The Twilight Saga - wishing we can visit Forks but everyone says no. LOL)

When we get back from Washington, I will be baking goodies for a bachelorette party as well as a birthday party all in the same week!

The week after, I was asked to bake all the goodies for my nephew's 1st birthday! The very same day, attending a wedding!

I'm looking forward to a very busy month and hopefully I can manage to update my blog with pictures to come. So stay tuned everyone! =)

B is for Banana


Over the few weeks, it's been a habit to bake cupcakes at the end of the week. I've been trying to test out new recipes as well as figure out which cupcakes will be on our dessert menu. I have always wanted to try a banana cupcake inspired by my favorite cupcake flavor from Sprinkles but always forget to buy bananas. This time I was inspired by my fellow blogger Diary of a Sweet Life and the show DC Cupcakes. I found a perfect recipe through my cupcake recipe books and added a little touch of my own by adding some vanilla and sour cream to keep it moist. It turned out sooo yummy. I made two frostings, nutella and cream cheese frosting (personally the nutella was heaven). I'm definitely adding these babies to the menu.

Lovely weekend recap

This past few weeks, I've been crazy paranoid. Ask the hubby and the little sissy, and they will tell you exactly how I felt. I have no idea what's going on with my body but I have not been "regular" if you know what I mean. Ever since June, mother nature has not arrived and it is making me very nervous. It's not that I don't want to be pregnant, I just feel that I'm not ready to have another baby quite so soon. My little Maxi is quite a handful (ask anyone, they will tell you! lol) but everyday I am so blessed to have him. Anyways, it's almost August and no mother nature yet. I've been meaning to POAS (pee on a stick) but I'm terrified to see two lines. While my husband is ecstatic about more kids (he thinks the more the merrier), I am here freaking out. Not only my poor body has not bounce back from my Cesarian but I haven't even lost my baby weight yet. I can't even think about another baby yet?!?

I became more paranoid because I was having symptoms when I was pregnant with Max. I was burping like a truck driver and kind of nausous. But then again, I may have been psychicing myself out. So over the weekend, I finally man(ed) up and had my hubby buy a pregnancy test. Yesterday morning (which all ladies know is the best time to POAS) I finally did it. Here is the results:
*Please excuse my poor quality Blackberry camera photo*

THANK GOODNESS!!! I was a bad girl and woke up my husband and played a silly joke on him. I told him, it was positive. He immediately got up and nervously yelled, "Are you serious?!!!!!" I said, "Gotcha!!!" I'm awful, I know =)

So that sums up my weekend, well except I forgot to mention that my hubby had the most terrible stomach virus. He looks like he lost 5 lbs! Ha! As a stay at home mom, never realized how awful Sunday nights we're. Just thinking about going to work on Monday makes me just gag! Till next blogging spree!

Themes

I've been on a blogging roll, can you tell? LOL I'm currently taking advantage of my free time blogging spree during the weekends.

But lately, after Natalie's party, my sister aka my business partner have been brain storming on what theme my delicious Maxi will have for his 1st birthday party. I never realized how difficult picking out just one idea. haha Surprisingly there are sooo many cute girlie ideas compared to boys. (That's just my opinion) I did although manage to break it down to three that I loved. Of course, I need to add my husband's input on this but if you know us, you know that we love to plan parties way in advanced. This way, by the time the party is close, we're not running around and going bananas and, kicking ourselves in the butt for not being prepared. Party planners should always be prepared. Right? Stay tuned on what I come up with...
In the meantime, how adorable is this party? I love it! It's my inspiration at the moment. Courtesy of Style me Gorgeous

Need vs Want

In my previous post, I mentioned that I have been going on a baking extravaganza... with that said, there are soooo many appliances or supplies that I soooo need. (In my husband's opinion all items are considered want.) Whatever! LOL

I'm so tired of hand mixing my batters or better yet I'm even more tired of using the electric mixer and have everything all over my clothes. I want all of these...I mean need these NOW! =)

I've always wanted a food electronic scale. This way everything I make is the same size.

I need a Silpat so bad, I waste way too much parchment paper.

Expensive Vanilla extract always makes everything taste good!

My hand is officially tired of sifting everything manually. =(

Worldwide baking

For the past months, my oven has been on full blast. We've been on a baking marathon. Speaking of, just today I just made a batch of red velvets for my lovely aunt's birthday (another post). But lately, my sister and I have been getting more and more clients to do parties and to create desserts. I wanted to expand my horizons and venture out from the typical cupcakes or cake lollipops. I decided to look into Filipino desserts. I found this amazing Bibingka recipe online and added my own touches which turned out light and airy and so delicious especially fresh out of the oven. I decided to glam it up by cutting it in squares and add a touch of coconut. Along with cupcakes, cake bites, cheesecakes, etc. these are officially on our catering menu.

Busy life

So I haven't blogged in a very loooong time. I just could not make time to do one of my favorite things to do, due to my over whelming schedule. I recently started working again, yes, I am officially a working mom. Up to this point, I did not know how difficult it would be to be away from my baby. I kind of find it funny because my husband and I have switched rolls. While he is at home with the baby, doing the laundry, doing errands I am at work. He is currently working from home and I just so envy him. It doesn't help that he sends me text pictures of my baby doing the most adorable things.

In the previous post, I mentioned that my sister and I will be opening our very own business soon and of course this job will pay for our start up cost. I am happy to announce that we have many clients in the next months. Working a 9-5 job also enabled me to network and now my co-worker has hired us to plan her grand baby's birthday party.

It will be a very busy couple of months for us. Two weddings to attend. Seattle in August. Birthdays to plan. Goodies to bake. Oh my!

5 Months


It's been quite a while since the last time I posted. This is all due to the typical life of a busy wife/mommy. Recently I changed my blog name due to conflict of our new business name. Yes, I said "new business." My sister and I finally pursued our true passion. Our business consist of sweet desserts, designing dessert tables, invitations, favors, and all things parties. Stay tuned for our upcoming website. It's currently in the works.

In the meantime, my little baby turned 5 months old yesterday and can't believe how time literally flies. He is now flipping all over the bed, knows if mommy or daddy is not in the room and loves to laugh. I love waking up in the morning looking forward to that smile on Maxi's face. Yes, it's true, every morning when he sees his mommy or daddy, he has a huge smile on his face. Last night, I made pigs in a blanket and baked delicious chocolate cupcakes. Yumm!

Lakers Party

This post is just in time because last night, my favorite basketball team the Los Angeles Lakers has won the NBA Finals! I almost nearly lost my voice due to the screaming and clapping that took place last night. Even my 11 month old niece was cheering her heart out. My sister and I wanted to plan a Laker party but first wanted to make sure they come out with a win. This post from Hostess with the Mostess had one of the most fabulous Laker party I ever seen.

Paper goodies...

Usually when having a special occasion, when invitations are needed, I always order invites from my favorite paper vendor. This time around, I decided to save some major doe (major meaning $120) by making them myself. On average, invitations from my favorite vendor would cost about $160 not even including shipping. For 50 invitations that's definitely pricey in my book. They're the best, so I didn't mind back then. Well it's not that I mind now, it's just that I obviously had to keep in mind that my venue is already going to cost me an arm and a leg. Saving by making your own paper crafts makes a huge difference on your budget.

I wanted to go with a classic theme, not the typical cross baptism that you always see. I chose a simple monogram style using light green and teal Tiffany blue. I went to Michael's with my sissy and we found very cute invitation templates. All I needed to do was choose my fonts, colors, and print away. I also adorned them with pretty ribbons and sealed them with the same font and color on each envelope. I was very happy with the outcome. Hope you like them...

Weekly Random Thoughts 4th edition

I am almost done with all the paper crafts and designing for Max's baptism. My sissy's Printshop Adobe made my life sooo much easier. Now I can't wait to design my baby's 1st birthday invites. Natalie's invitation are absolutely faaabulous! So inspired!

I had experienced some bumps and hurdles this week. Well first, my favor idea of ordering cookies from the famous Diddy Riese did not work out. Unfortunately my cousin who had plan to pick up my order will arrive Sunday morning, which leaves me no time to adorn them with pretty ribbons. Instead, I will make the edible favors myself. I just did a mock-up this morning and both got the approval from the hubby and little sis (which opinions I highly value).

One of my pet peeve is when people don't RSVP for an event. I cannot fathom how much time wasted to having to get in touch with people who does not have the courtesy to set aside one whole minute of their time to say "Yes or No". Simple as that, doesn't seem like rocket science to me? It amazes me even more when all you need to do is simply check off yes or no and mail it off, with a stamp already included. (Yes, I experienced this when trying to get back my wedding RSVPs). How I applause those relatives/friends who takes the initiative to respond back before the RSVP date. To add salt to the wound, there are people who don't bother to RSVP but waits for the invitee to actually contact them. Then there are those people who had RSVP to attend but is a no show at the actual event. Talk about no courtesy. Anyway, vent over. Let's move on...

Another hurdle to overcome is assigning seating arrangements for each guests. Hopefully it will work out and each guest is a happy guest.

After planning this baptism, I am so exited to plan another huge event in the next year (other than Max's 1st birthday of course - that's a whole different post). I can't wait to dig in and start doing my heavy research.

This summer will be such a busy one. So many birthdays and a couple of my favorite cousins are getting married. I would also love to go back to Los Angeles during the fall or winter to do some research for the big event as well as fitting in some R&R. =)

How do I add working out to my list of things to do everyday? Exercising is definitely a must if I want to get back in shape. My pilates DVD isn't so motivating and this chilly weather is not very helpful. In the faint of heart, I still need to lose about five more lbs in the thighs and hips area to get back into my old jeans again. Muffin tops are sooo not cute! hehe

I cannot wait to see SATC 2 over the weekend. Soo excited!

Ok, enough blabbering... till next week.

Weekly random thoughts.. edition 3

Seriously, can they make Edward more pale? I mean, I thought as a vampire he wasn't supposed to change? He was so much more handsome in Twilight. I loved the boyish look he had going on, now he just looks paler, older and full of makeup. Rest a sure, I still love my Edward! I'm probably what you consider a "Twi-Mom" now. HAHA

Thanks to Trader Joe's, all of a sudden I'm addicted to fish sticks! HAHA My little sis and I have been to three different stores this weekend (Costco, Wal Mart, & Target) all in which we purchased fish sticks. Tonight we had fish and chips with tarter sauce and lemon on the side. We even had sweet potato fries to go with. On Thursday night, we are having fish tacos. LOL awkward much?

Last night I slept on the floor. I thought I had pink eye (conjunctivitis). All of a sudden my left eye started to feel itchy, which I started to rub. With all the rubbing, my eye turned pink of course. I have no idea how I got it. I have a pet peeve about hand washing and I always bring anti-bacterial with me everywhere I go. It's quite possible that it's allergies but to be cautious I slept on the floor so my little Max wouldn't be at risk.

Speaking of eye and Max, the past week, his right eye has been very watery. He's always tearing just on that one eye. I'm a little concerned so I'm going to call his doctor tomorrow morning just in case. Hopefully it's just a close tear duct.

My sleep pattern is all wrong. I am now sleeping as late as 2:30 AM, as you may notice the time of my blog posts. This is not good, especially when I officially go back to work.

Well that's all for now...till next edition of my weekly random thoughts.

Sweet tooth madness...

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Three weekends ago, I had an agenda. I was determined to make cupcake pops. I did NOT realize how difficult it would be. Not the baking part but more like the multi-tasking. Baking and taking care of an infant can be quite exhausting! Thank goodness I have my husband to do the babysitting while I was doing the baking. It was my very first time experimenting with these sugar concoctions other than the usual cupcakes that we make. I made two different batches which consisted of yellow cake and devils food cake.

Out of the two flavors, I prefer the chocolate cake. It was fudgy goodness! So moist and not too sweet. Although I love yellow cake, I didn't like the cream cheese frosting. Maybe next time I will try mixing the chocolate frosting rather than the cream cheese.

Here's a journey of my cupcake pop extravaganza. Trial and error which resulted to decadent bite size yummy goodness. If you like what you see, don't hesitate to contact me...
