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...
