My Feet Are Gone

missing feet

I can't seem to recall the last time I looked down and saw my feet. Probably a week ago or something. Am definitely feeling heavy right now. Physically it takes a lot of effort to pull myself up by myself from sitting or lying position. So it's nice when am surrounded with people. They can't refuse my sweet requests like handing me the magazines or giving me a glass of water. And it's not hard to abuse that am-pregnant-card to everyone. 

Sleeping is hard right now. Last night I didn't get to sleep at all. Am not sure If am just over thinking everything, or am just so excited or there's just no comfortable sleeping position no matter how many pillows i surround myself with. They say it's normal on the last trimester. But i kinda liked it. I think the baby knows when am awake. It moves non stop. I love the idea that it's just me and him/her awake in the middle of the night, me feeling his/her every movement and kicks. It sounds selfish, but the last remaining weeks is just around the corner that will go by so fast so I don't want to miss any moment. Anyway, baby and I can always sleep any hour in the morning.

We're going out a little later. Id probably dress up as a knocked up witch. But the rain is approaching so we'll see if plans will push through. If not, then ill just be me. Just a bloated knocked up spawn of duck and tadpole.

32nd bump

I feel pretty
Oh so pretty
I feel pretty and witty and bright,
And I pity any girl who isn't me tonight.

I feel charming
Oh so charming
It's alarming how charming I feel
And so pretty that I hardly can believe I'm real.

See the pretty girl in that mirror there
Who can that attractive girl be?
Such a pretty face
Such a pretty dress
Such a pretty smile
Such a pretty me!

I feel stunning
And entrancing
Feel like running and dancing for joy
For I'm loved by a pretty wonderful boy!

Have you met my good friend Maria
The craziest girl on the block?
You'll know her the minute you see her
She's the one who is in an advanced state of shock

She thinks she's in love
She thinks she's in Spain
She isn't in love
She's merely insane

It must be the heat
Or some rare disease
Or too much to eat
Or maybe it's fleas

Keep away from her
Send for Chino
This is not the Maria we know

Honest and pure
Polite and refined
Well-bred and mature
and out of her mind!

(Miss America Speech!)

I feel pretty
Oh so pretty
That the city should give me its key
A committee should be organized to honor me (la la la la la la la la la la)

I feel dizzy
I feel sunny
I feel fizzy and funny and fine
And so pretty, Miss America can just resign. (la la la la la la la la la la la la)

See the pretty girl in that mirror there (What mirror where?)
Who can that attractive girl be? (Which? What? Where? Whom?)
Such a pretty face
Such a pretty dress
Such a pretty smile
Such a pretty me!

I feel stunning (I feel stunning)
And entrancing (and entrancing)
Feel like running and dancing for joy (feel like running and dancing for joy)
For I'm loved by a pretty wonderful boy! 

Let's sing it again!!!!!

What Big Nose You Have

big nose

32nd week nose and bump

So this is how i look now. 

big, red hard nose? check!
big butt? check!
big round tummy? check check check! 
big feet and hands and legs? check!
swollen cheek? super check!
missing feet? check!
just big allover???? check-ke-kek!
and my favorite of all, big boobies??? check! finally. 

It seems like yesterday that am so impatient to see my bump grow big like a real pregnant lady should have. Am on my 32nd week now and the baby grew practically overnight. One day I woke up and felt heavier than usual. It's nice to think about the day we finally got to meet this little person inside me. I wanna hear those precious words... "congratulations, it's a baby boy, or it's a baby girl!!!!". We just want a baby for Christmas that's all.

Anyway here I am, finally sitting down for the first time since...... the last post, in front of my laptop thinking what to say. And again, we're so busy going from place to place, pigging out, and doing a lot for the coming baby. I've got so many photos to share and if one day i woke up on the wrong side of the bed i might share photos of my parents. Am a little shy when it comes to them. All I can say is that, when we're together we're a crazy bunch. They keep me energized and they won't leave me alone. I sent them away this morning so am able to do my thing, finally. Honestly, I missed you. I love all the emails and followings i received since my absence. It was so sweet. Don't worry about me, the baby's still inside me. He/she has still a lot more growing to do for the next 8 weeks. And I need more time. We're anxious, excited, afraid, and more anxious and happy and more afraid but really excited as the day comes. I don't feel prepared enough honestly, so we'll just wait for the baby and see how we rate as parents. 

Have an amazing week everyone. God Bless.

British Vogue October issue

Men are visual creatures. So am I. I like pretty girls and boys in pretty clothes, witty girls that acts on what they say and feisty girls that has legs and big brains. Am not a boob person, but i like big butts. Even on men. But I don't like bulging muscle and ripped abs. I think they look like frogs. Just saying.

Anyway, am so sorry for saying those things. It's unrelated, but sometimes you just can't help but say things that pops on your mind. And this morning my head is just bursting with stupid thoughts. I think it's better that way than not thinking at all right? 

So those photos above, they're gorgeous. It's a simple picture but it sure took me to that dreamy place.

Have a great weekend everyone! Keep the inspiration coming.

Am dreading my Labor day. It just occurred to me that in order to be a mommy, I need to have a baby and in order to produce a baby It doesn't just start and stop at pregnancy, I have in fact have to push a baby when the time comes. Suddenly am afraid. Suddenly I wanted to stay pregnant forever. Suddenly am a chicken. Suddenly days are passing like a flash. Everything seem so fast. 

I know am strong. Like each time i visit my dermatologist to have that annoying pimple injection from time to time - It is always painful. No matter how many times it done on me, it is always painful. My hands would sweat, my armpit sweats too, my body temperature rises, and involuntary tears striking down my face. But I always come out alive and swearing not to do that again. 

So right now that's my motivation. Labor is just like pimple injection, only one million times painful....I think am gonna die. 

Is there a mommy out there? please convince me that if you can do it, I can do it too.

Isn't That Swell?

forever 21 ring and bangle

My hands and feet started swelling about a week ago. Not merely  everyday, thank God. But when you live in a tropical country, when it's hot and humid all day (unless you confine yourself in an air-conditioned room 24/7) at the end of the day your hands and feet won't look and feel the same. It's a new thing for me so am a bit surprised and shocked. Well, considering am on my 7th month of pregnancy so this is pretty normal. Since then I haven't been wearing my wedding ring so my finger felt so naked. Then came my husband to the rescue. He's so sweet, on his recent trip to the city, he bought me this ring and bangle. I can only imagine him roaming around the store looking for that perfect pasalubong to a bloated wife. I think it's smart of him to buy me these accessories rather than a box of donut or cake right? 

Let Them Eat Cake


Hello friends,

Am sorry it took me forever to update you about my birthday but I had a blast! Mommy got me a Chocolate mousse cake, my favorite, but i only ate the top layer. I am very health conscious. I don't eat fat, or chicken skin and especially chocolate. Why? Because! Another surprise came in, - a bucket of Jollibee fried chicken. Oh boy life is good. Am so happy to be three. It's a big deal you know. By the way, i finished licking the whole top layer without blowing the candle. I guess I need more practice on that. My lower bite makes it more difficult, but It's no problem cos I got another year to prepare for another candle blowing.

So goodbye for now. And thank you so much for all the birthday greetings. I love you all.

Happy Birthday Love

Koffy barely three months old


... and today October 12 is his third birthday

Dear Koffy,

It's your birthday today. Do you know that? I think you know, because you kissed me differently this morning, almost hurt my cheek. We love you Koffy, more and more each day. You have no idea how much you trained and prepared mom and dad for serious parenting. And soon you're gonna be a big brother. I know you're gonna be good because we loved you first and will always be our first love. Okay this is getting long. Birthday greetings are supposed to be short, so okay, we'll go out a little later. We'll buy you a cake and a candle and fried chicken and beer (cos Diane said he's legal now) and we'll celebrate somewhere far where you can just run anywhere you want.

Bringing Down The Flats


my indestructible 5 year old flats from Happy Feet 


a couple of comfy sandals all from Primadonna seen worn here, here and here.

So I had a very busy weekend. Lots of errands and some home projects that kept my mind occupied even passed bedtime that surely turned my legs, hands and feet into a hard rock mass but with a jelly-like weakness. To top it all off, i hardly had any sleep. But our breakfast today was nice. Ginataang kalabasa at sitaw, menudo and paksiw na isda. They were all leftovers but I don't mind. Food can heal anything. 

Monday, Monday, Monday. What do you have in store for us?

Thank you so much for the kind words and encouragement you left on my last post. The emails poured from the wonderful mommies and gorgeous ladies all over the net, and believe it or not, it gave me an instant lift from all the blues am experiencing a couple of days ago. I know pregnancy isn't always glam and pretty, but darn it, it is the BEST. Sometimes I tend to forget that this is (above all else) the greatest blessing any woman can ever receive. This is life, a once in a lifetime journey, to be able to conceive life for the first time which cannot be replicated again. This is our first child, our first love. 

But then again, sometimes i forget how lucky am I to be a healthy mommy. All my medical check ups are giving best results. No complications. My body is fit to carry a child. It is my mind that messes up with me sometimes. So yesterday with your help, I decided to suck it up, dress nicely, smile and put on a little eye liner that took me forever to "perfect". And to the rest of the afternoon I started feeling good again. Thanks to you, you're the wind beneath my tush.

First of all, let me congratulate our friend Toxic Disco Boy and his business partner Inkarlcerating for their first clothing brand, the Paradigm Shift. I don't know how to describe clothes, it's not in my tongue, but when I see something new, beautiful and unique, it's not impossible to say something a little thing or two about it.

Launching Mindsteps, this monochrome severity of their first collection was a step away from the romance of  the season. Or maybe it was a different kind of romance. The architectural cuts and yet the simple stripping-everything-away-design and just letting the clothes speak for itself is brilliant. I like that the silhouette of each piece isn't shape conscious unlike other types of clothes. Will surely order something from them soon. And am just inspired to put together an outfit ala Paradigm Shift soon. 

all the brand details are on their site: PARADIGMSHIFTCLOTHING.TK 

Please support these wonderful and talented duo, let's support indie.

Morning Has Broken

It's baaaaack! Nausea and fatigue..... But nonetheless baby and I are very healthy. That's all that matters. Sleeping is bit hard now these days. All I can ever think about is this baby. Am so excited, I couldn't wait for December any longer. Am getting so impatient. Days are long, nights are much longer. 

I don't want to drag you, but I need a virtual support. You have no idea how much your encouragement means the world to me. Please say something....

Soft Peach

Koffy seem to be more needy than usual. Am not sure why. He's restless and seeks my attention almost every second of his waking hour. Maybe he feels that not very far from now there will be a new baby in the family coming very soon??? But being me, am sure nothing will change for him. Will never kick him out of the house. Am not that kind of parent. It never took me that long to fall for him and love him like a real person compared to some human being I happen to know. (true story) In fact, It will be sweeter. Yes, challenging, but happier and crazier. Our family dates would even be better. 

Anyway, I got this sheer peach top a week ago from thrifting of course, for only 16php or 0.35$. I know! It's ridonculous. It's breezy, soft and comfortable. I don't think I have this color in my closet before. So it's nice to find one in a great price.

So how's your week so far? Hope it started good, well if not, you still got three more days to make up for the not-so-nice start right?
