Lucky night

Hubby and I went to the Botanical garden yesterday to see the Galaxy of Lights coz today is the last day of the showing. It was crowded last night but not too crowded. We were there for almost an hour and headed to the Chinese buffet for dinner. I was hungry already while watching the galaxy of lights but there's no way out so we patiently followed the cars ahead of us. It's almost 9 pm already when we arrived at the restaurant and we're not so sure of what time they close. Most restaurants closes at 9 pm and I thought the chinese restaurant that I normally go to with my friends will close at 10 so we tried to go there first to see if they are still open. Luckily they're still open but only until 9:30 pm. I have no other choice but to go inside and eat coz I'm already hungry. We are the last customer so some parts of the bar are empty and the first thing that I was looking for was the crawfish but it's already empty. Anyways, I got some rice, veggies, chicken soup and shrimp. The woman at the cashier came to me and asked if I want to eat crawfish coz they'll cook some for me and without thinking twice I said "yes, please". Wow! It made me happy that they'll cook my fave crawfish. haha Then the woman at the cashier told me that if I want something that is not there anymore I'll just tell them and they'll cook what I want. Sweet! While I was halfway eating, the woman at the cashier came to our table and told me that the crawfish is ready. So I went to the bar and took some crawfish. I thought they're going to cook just some for me but the pan is so full. I wish my friends were there, I'm sure they'll be happy to see the crawfish. Then when I went to the dessert bar, I saw the fresh cooked crab legs. How I wish I still have room for it but I'm almost full already so I only took a little bit of fruits. I arrived home happy. :)

Happy New Year!

Brain dead or just lazy?

I read the pregnancy book that pregnant women are forgetful and that's because of the hormone. I don't know if it's true but I've been experiencing being forgetful or just lazy to compose something to post which I think the reason why I sort of have a brain dead lately. Besides, I spend more time watching TV than doing something on the computer (now that I'm pregnant) coz I feel more relaxed sitting on the couch than sitting on a chair. Oh well, I think this too will pass as what pregnant women always say. We'll see. :)

Things I Am Thankful for this year

A nice tag from a dear friend Lynn. Thanks for sharing this girl! ^_^

Be thankful that you don't already have anything you desire...if you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don't know something... for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times... during those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations... because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge... because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes... they will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you're tired and weary... because it means you've made a difference.

GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive. Find a way to be thankful for your troubles and they can become your blessings.

I have a lot of things to be thankful for and here are some of them.

1.) God - for all the blessings.

2. ) Hubby - for the unconditional love, care and understanding.

3.) Family - for being a part of my life.

4.) Little one - for changing my diet into a better one. ^_-

5.) Friends - for the good memories and good times.

6.) Blogger friends - for leaving nice comments, encouragement and for making me smile.

I want to share this tag to all. I think we all have something to be thankful for no matter how difficult life is sometimes.

I still don't know what I want for Christmas

I'm still clueless of what's the best gift that I want for Christmas. Last year I had different kinds of chocolates that I like but I don't want hubby to buy one for me this year because it's not good for me and the baby. I have sweets available here though so I don't need more. I was thinking of something that I can use for a lifetime if possible but I don't know what it is. (sigh) Anyways, hubby purchased a video camera as a gift for both of us coz we're going to use that to take baby videos as memories. Maybe the video camera is enough as christmas gift for us this year. I don't know. I don't want to think or shop anymore coz the crowded stores made me sick.

Need to watch my diet

Lately I like eating sweets though I tried to control myself not to be tempted with those stuff coz I don't want to have a problem with gestational diabetes. But sometimes I have the urge to eat sweets once a day and sometimes twice which I think is not good. Though others would say that it's okay to eat sweets as long as I'm not eating in big portions but still I'm afraid that I will be addicted to it. One thing that I can control at the moment is avoiding salty ones coz sodium can make my feet swell and I don't want that to happen. I also started to like soda again. Hubby told me to buy some caffeine free coz I'm allowed to drink once a day (according to the practitioner) but I decided not to buy soda for me coz again I might be addicted to it. Eating vegetables and protein everyday are the top of my list coz I felt guilty that I'm not feeding what my baby needs if I can't eat those. I really need to watch my diet coz if I don't then me and my baby will suffer. Wish me luck! :)

Too lazy

Well, I didn't sleep well last night so today I'm not in the mood to do anything. I only cooked for my lunch, dinner, washing dishes and the rest is just watching TV. I was thinking of so many things also like arranging some areas in the house in preparation of the baby's arrival. It seems that there's a lot going on in my head but don't know where to start. Besides, I'm not allowed to lift or carry heavy stuff so now all I can do is just plan and tell hubby what my plan is and what he can do to make my plan work. Oh boy, how I wish I can carry heavy stuff so I can help hubby too but I'm also afraid that if I don't listen then accidents might happen. It's nice to be pregnant but it's also difficult coz I can't do what I wanted to do. (sigh)

It's snowing today!

I get up at 11:30 am today to watch the food network's quick fix meals and to eat lunch. I'm so thankful that my baby sleep most of the time last night which made me get more sleep too even in the morning. Anyways, after eating my lunch I looked at the window and thought that it was raining but when I saw the ground there are white stuff like salt. Then I saw a few snow falling. I went back to the couch and continue to watch food network. When I looked at the window again there were more snowflakes falling so I grab the camera and took a photo of it. The snow stopped so I went out to have my exercise at the fitness center. It's freezing cold outside but I like it. :)
