It's a ...

So hubby and I had our fetal survey appointment on Monday where we found out the sex of our baby! We were supposed to find out last week on Tuesday, so my excited self found it hard to sleep and then slept through the appointment; I was super bummed...I mean SUPER bummed. I ugly cried (snorting, choking, inability to speak clearly) to my sister...who, by the way, laughed at me because she couldn't understand what I was saying. I see, now, how it was funny, but I felt terrible at the time! Luckily, I did not advertise on Facebook or Twitter or Blogger about when we were going to find out. I did mention it to some people via word of mouth, but that's all. And every time someone asked me what the baby was, it just dampened my spirits. I felt like I was already a bad mother for not being able to wake up for an appointment with the doctor...well, I finally got over it.

Anyways...want to know what we're having? Check out our baby website!

It's been a while! Sorry. After coming home from all the traveling, all I wanted to do was NOTHING.

Also, we got a happy surprise nearing the end of summer...

A short menstrual period and week-long sore boobs lead us to, SURPRISE!, 2 positive home pregnancy tests and a doctor's appointment.

On August 26, 2010, an appointment with a physician (who happened to be my dad's doctor) confirmed it! The doctor asked me to congratulate my dad for him. And I started the necessary blood work.

We chose Dr. Mendelsohn with the Orange Coast Women's Medical Group as our OB/GYN, whose office is adjacent to the hospital we will deliver at, Saddleback Memorial.

On September 15, 2010, (Hubby's 30th birthday), we had our first appointment with Dr. Mendelsohn and got our first ultrasound!

We found out we were at 9wks, and baby is due April 20, 2011 (yea, that's 4/20). And so we begin our journey to parenthood...

a traveling closet

So I currently have no job, am looking for work, taking care of the pops (is recovering from a surgery), and am enjoying the time off.

I've got a busy schedule ahead of me. The hubs and I are off to Houston this weekend to visit his parents, then we're San Francisco bound to celebrate our 1-year anniversary, and then I'm off to Europe with my mom and sister! I don't know what to wear or what purses and shoes to bring! I have little mula and lots of things to do. HELP!

Anyone check out's Ultimate Closet LookBook: 16 pieces + 22 looks. I love it! This would totally be ideal for traveling fashionista.

Here are my favorite looks:

Way to maximize what you have! And that's what I'm planning to do...especially on my trip to Europe. I don't want to bring more than what I can fit into my carry-on.

structured jackets


Don't totally want[ed] Michael Jackson's jacket.

If you're gonna make a statement, make it a bold one. Say it with your jacket. Whether it's a leather biker jacket or a blazer, you want people to take that second ooooo i like that kinda look. Big collars and fierce shoulders!

A. Wang's New Bag

Alexander Wang Leopard Diego Bucket Bag. You can pre-order this bad boy at Opening Ceremony.

I am totally digging this bag...though the weight of the studs [and price] discourage me a little. I love functional bags. See this review over at The Purse Blog. I think this would be a great stand-out piece for any girl's wardrobe.

styling for the petite and cleavage challenged

i hate that he kept saying "flat-chested." it just doesn't sound pretty. right?

before and after
watch the video here.

what do you guys think? abide by these rules? the outfit looks cute on the girl in the video, but the picture still doesn't do it for me. i dig the shoes though. and i love stripes, but boat neck? why doesn't she just wear a shirt that says "no boobs?"

i personally love deep v neck shirts, and i love accentuating my chest. why should i hide it? i'm happy with my body...yes, trying on clothes that don't fit me cuz i don't have the bust for it sometimes makes me sad, but i'm sad because these mass-producing designers and clothing stores feel they don't need to cater to those of us who are not at least 5'6" with a 24 inch waist and slender legs. that's okay...styling myself is a fun challenge, and i really get to show off my personality. i don't want to look like the masses at all.

not your boyfriend's jeans...anymore

i need a pair, damnit! i really love these Madewell Ex-Boyfriend Jeans:
