Father's Day Surprise

A surprise ice cream cake for hubby's first father's day. He was really surprised to see the cake and started asking me questions of how I bought it, when and if I brought Claira with me. He also received 2 cards from me and Claira which I put on top of the emergency light in the bathroom before I went to bed. haha ^_^

Hubby's ice cream cake. :)

And yes, it was yum yum! :)

Cook in with friends

Instead of going out for our regular ladies night out, we decided to have a cook in at my friend's house so we can eat Filipino foods again. haha

Here are the foods prepared by us.

And here we are, excited to eat Pinoy foods again. ^_^

Claira's Baptismal

At last, Claira is now a christian! Her christening gown is donated and hand made from my Aunt in Idaho. I love the gown and the priest said that it's like a wedding gown. haha Here we are with the Priest, Ninangs and Ninong. :)

Ang inahan...

Claira's been wanting my attention and I have other things to do in the house. I don't have any relatives here to help take care of Claira while I do some chores so my solution is to use the baby carrier. Using the carrier helped me do things that needs to be done while Claira is enjoying the ride. That's motherhood. hehe Here's our photo.

Claira and me2

Here's our photo after I went out with my friends for our ladies night out. It really helped me a lot every time I go out by myself coz I start to miss Claira and of course hubby too. That's what her Pedia said to hubby that I should have time for myself. Though I enjoyed my ME time with friends, my mind is wondering if Claira and hubby are doing okay at home while I'm having fun. hehe

Microwaving Sweet corn

I love sweet corn and I normally steamed them for my snack not boiled which we used to do in the Philippines. One time my laziness strikes and I wanted to eat the sweet corn right away so I thought of the microwave. I peel some of the husk and leave a little bit just enough to cover the corn. In the microwave, I tried 1 minute first so the corn won't pop and then turn the other side for another minute and add another minute. For 3 minutes the corn was already cooked. Now I know how to cook it the easy and quicker way. Thanks to the microwave, it made my life easier. ^_^

Ice cream cake

This was the ice cream cake I bought for my baby shower. I just don't want to go to the party with empty handed coz for sure my pinay friends brought something to share to everybody. I was glad I chose the chocolate ice cream and cake coz it really taste so good than the first time that hubby and I ordered for my friend's birthday. Yummy yummy! :)

Sweet and sour chicken with fried rice...

I've been eating this sweet and sour chicken for 2 Sunday's already after church. This is good when you're in a hurry and don't have time to cook coz we just order this at the Chinese restaurant near our apartment. The owner of the restaurant is our neighbor just 2 blocks away from our building. What's nice about the restaurant is you can order thru phone and then go to the restaurant to pick up your order. No need to wait but if the owner is not busy she likes to chit chat with me and hubby especially now that I'm preggy. If I'm hungry and in a hurry I just wait in the car and let hubby get the order so we can have the food right away. haha This sweet and sour chicken is delicious but it's deep fried so I try not to eat it all the time. :)

My friends gave me a baby shower last Saturday at 2:00 PM. I already had a clue of what's going on but never expected that it was sort of well planned event. Others want me to think that it's a late Valentines party but I wasn't informed that way. A friend just told me to go to a friend's house for the party. Though she didn't mention the baby shower or Valentine's party but I suspect already that it's the baby shower coz one of my friends said that the baby shower will be this month. I thought it's just a simple event with close friends (the ones I go out with for ladies night out) but when hubby and I were close at my friend's house I saw 4 balloons outside (2 regular size and 2 small). Then I read what's written on the balloon and it says "baby shower". As we're close to the door, I saw the two flower pots with pink flowers and more balloons inside the house. I was amazed with the decoration on the wall with the words saying "it's a girl". More decors around and my friend put the crown on my head which says "new mom to be". Aside from the Pinoy foods and desserts prepared by friends, there were games also, singing and of course the opening of gifts. What surprises me was their effort to make the baby shower a great success. Here are some photos... and more photos HERE.

The gifts...

Baby's corner...

Hubby and I are still not finish preparing for the baby's room but we're almost getting there. There are still stuff in the room that we're going to keep in the storage locker and some stuff that hubby might use someday but he doesn't know yet where to put them. Now the living room is a mess but at least, the baby already have a place for her stuff.

Save money from coupons

I'm new into this coupon thing though I heard and watched about this topic at Oprah show many times already last year. I was amazed of how much money a person can save if you have the descipline and time to spend cutting coupons for future use. At first I thought only those who subscribe newspapers can use the coupons but now you can get coupons from the mail, products that you bought or just by surfing printable coupons on the internet. I'm thankful that my mother-in-law subscribe the Sunday Newspaper coz I found coupons that I can use. Now I'm starting to save a little bit of money from coupons. I'm now learning little by little and looking forward to save more. It's pretty interesting and I think I might be addicted to this once I know how to play this game. :)

Healthy for baby

I've been thinking of what to eat that is also healthy for my baby. I'm not sure if other moms are doing the same thing but for me the health of the baby starts in the mothers womb. I need to eat vegetables everyday for my fiber and shrimp is good for baby's brain so I decided to cook bean sprouts, green beans with shrimps. This is good for 3 meals for me coz hubby doesn't like to eat shrimps. It's yummy and healthy. ^_^

It's snowing again...

The forecast for today is wrong coz when I checked the weather thru my cellphone it says it will be sunny at 2 pm but then it started snowing at 1 pm and it's more cloudy. I thought it's just rain but when I looked at my jacket I saw a salt like stuff on top of it. The weather started to become freezing cold and more snow falling which looked like dandruff falling from the sky. haha

Me at 28 weeks

Early this afternoon I went to the fitness center for my exercise. I really like going there coz it made me energized and healthy after I had my exercise. I even told my Aunt about going to the fitness and she told me not to overdo it. She said that walking exercise is okay. My plan is to be in the treadmill for 30 minutes. But if I do some chores in the house or go out shopping then I don't go to the fitness center. And if I feel weak, I just stay at home and do nothing but relax and rest. Now that's my life as preggy. :)
