Mommy favors

Elijah’s birthday is on Saturday and we’ll be going to Disneyland to celebrate. Usually, my family and I throw a party and invite as many friends and family our house can hold. But this year, since we have not been to Disney for quite awhile, we decided to do a combo and celebrate Jahs birthday, plus Mother’s Day, and check off Disney trip off our list.

We’ve been saving and bought tickets today. We are all super excited!

However, my OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) kicked in and I bought party favors and put together goodie bags for my son’s class. Schools no longer welcome home made baked goods or snacks, so I bought Pre-packaged snacks plus a simple toy to complete the goodie bag. I usually fill up the bags with more, but being in a tight budget already, I resisted additional temptations and looked the other way.

Check out the end result:


It’s quite simple to put this together. I’m
happy I had the time to make these.

Happy Birthday, son, I love you!


3 months weight lost…

Ugh! That’s how I feel… But also Yay! Not the look I want but I didn’t expect much change within 3 months of going back to exercising and having a proper diet.


Compared to March, it looks like I lost a few inches. The great news is that I lost 10 lbs. I went to my yearly physical and went from 136 lbs to 126 lbs. it was really hard not to look at the scale for several weeks, but I figured that if I don’t look, I won’t get discouraged when I gain or lose a little.



Ok, going good so far. I seriously am looking into Tickle Lipo with Dr. Tess Mauricio or even a tummy tuck. I don’t think a million crunches is going to tighten this belly for the life of me to the six pack I drool over. Even hubby agrees that I’ve gained weight up and down between pregnancies that this body may not stretch back to where I want it. Buhu! I’m going to give myself a few more months. If my personal weight loss, muscle building, and toning plan isn’t enough, then here I come Dr. Tess.

Any words of encouragement?
