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
