Well hello there November. October, you were so much fun with all the great “first” experiences for my son but I have to say I have been looking forward to November.


Okay it’s not November so much as it’s officially the holidays! I am seriously itching to decorate the house in Christmas decorations. Of course though, not until AFTER November 11, because of Remembrance Day. LEST WE FORGET. Have to show respect.

I want to finally deck out our place for the holidays especially now. I love this new place of ours and we deserve to finally feel the joys of Christmas. I can’t wait to go out shopping with baby G and Hubby in search of the perfect decor.  Hubby wgot his wish this year and bought a pencil tree.  it’s his dream tree. I have never seen him so excited. He says I can decorate however I want though so I’m trying to get some ideas and decide on what colour scheme to do.


I am trying to figure out what to do for baby G’s christening. I have seriously procrastinated on it and now I think it’s too late to do it this year. But … I talked with Hubby about it and I am deciding o keep it simple and just have  family dinner at our house for it rather than have the typical big party.  It is a religious family thing anyway so I think it’s better to keep it that way.  We will save his BIG HUGE ASS PARTY for his birthday! That, I think people will appreciate more outside of a religious thing.

Speaking of birthdays, it will be my nephew/God son’s 1st birthday next month!! Thats another thing I am looking forward to and I am really really trying to look for a great birthday gift but it’s hard!! 


I have to add exercise and better diet to my to-do list. I am gaining even MORE weight and it’s already depressing enough that I can’t get rid of my pregnancy weight. I have been lazy and became a bit of a hermit for a little while because of the cold and rainy days lately so my activity level was low. During the summer I would be out every day with Baby G cruising the malls and doing grocery shopping and we would be out for hours! Now not so much. so even if the weather is shit  outside,I still should be able to do some exercising inside even it means only doing 5 push up if Baby G’s naps are super short. SOMETHING!! I’m tired of being fat again!! I miss my old body!

    I start thinking of the holidays right when November comes around too 🙂 I’m already trying to figure out gifts for everyone. My husband and I don’t really decorate our house since we normally spend the holidays with my parents and then his parents. I’d love to see how you decorate your new place though!

    We’ve been having cold and rainy days too. It makes me want to be lazy! We got a treadmill last year, and I’m so glad we did. I can no longer use the weather as an excuse, so I’ve been exercising on that.

    Your baby is so adorable in the Pikachu costume! I can’t believe it’s been 7 months already!

    Thank you so much for the comment! My little one is getting pretty good at entertaining himself, and takes pretty good naps during the day (thank god). I just wanted to say that I LOVE your son’s costume! He is so extremerly precious! 🙂

    AHHH I’ve been feeling the same way about the holidays this year, too! I’m super excited to make it a magical time for my kids as well ^~^ and about the feasts we’re about to enjoy :p

    What’s a pencil tree? Have you thought of your theme yet? I typically go traditional. I did buy a big blowup snowman for our yard though.. but I live in a VERY country and rural part of SoCal so it might look kind of funny to the coyotes, etc haha

    I am right there with you about needing to make health a primary focus. I LOVE exercising but when one has been out of routine and shape for a while it’s challenging to successfully jump back in u_u’ I hope you’re able to do the things you want to!! <3

    Your baby's costume is so cute! Plus it's awesome. Love his smile, he's such a happy baby!! ^~^
