little bits & pieces

Be that Bridezilla, Please!

Friday, September 15, 2017
This post is for my future brides to be and coming from someone who purposely tried to take a more lax approach to my wedding planning, my biggest tip is BE A BRIDEZILLA! At the end of the day you have a vision and no one can see it as well as you. It's your job to make sure that everyone is aware of what you want and don't want as well as what your priorities are. Double check everything yourself unless you trust your coordinator to do so. So here it is...my tips for your day (because lets face it, it is!)


Bridal Party: 

- They say to pick the people that have been in your life the longest, or that you see being in your life for the next 10 years or more. The people that you can't see NOT having up there with you, which turned out to be a lot for me! But also it is wise to think about how much they are a part of your life, if you have any sort of reservations about any of them and where their priorities are when it comes to your wedding and bridal duties, it's better to have them just attend as guests. You don't need the stress and this was some of the best advice I got from my coordinator. You must also be considerate if you know they are having a hard time, not everyone can afford the expenses that come from being in the bridal party because they add up fast!! So basically just take your time when deciding, no need to rush! Ok...may be a little

- I didn't have anything particular when it came to hair but if you do care about the over all look with your bridesmaids just make sure they know not to do anything drastic ie: dye their hair purple or chop it all off.

- Nails, I did make sure they all had nudes or neutrals so nothing stood out in pictures too much. Remember that the goal is to make sure that in pictures or videos that YOU stand out, so it is not too much to ask. They will understand!

- Make sure they know they have to all SMILE when they are standing up there with you! and if they are not smiling to just look over in your direction at least and try not to look bored lol. It's hard when you have a lot of bridesmaids/groomsmen but they are on video and in photos the whole time so I doubt they want to be the one looking miserable! Hopefully the coordinator can remind them of this before they walk down the aisle as well.

Makeup:

-Obviously always do a makeup trial and take pictures after to see what it looks like on camera! It's great if you just coordinate the makeup trial day with your engagement photos. Also, make sure to have pictures of inspiration for the artist to go off of.

- Have a small purse!! You can always have the coordinator hold on to it for you. I didn't so I had no where to carry powder, undereye concealer, chapstick, lipstick, liner or my phone (yes I wish I had my phone to take little candid pix here and there). I needed ALL of these at some point and wish I brought them because it's a long day of emotions and especially if it's raining like it was for mine, you're gonna need the extra love!

Photography:

-Make a shot list for your photographer ( I forgot to finish mine!) so you know you have everything covered and you don't have to sound like the bridezilla asking everyone to stay for one on ones and all types of family pix. (very important if you have bad weather because it will be cold and you will feel rushed.)

- Let your photographer know what kind of shots you want and of who... for example if you want them to follow you around to the tables and take pictures of you with the guests or take pictures of the family tables or friends even if you're not with them etc. Don't be afraid to send photo examples or have 5-6 of your favorites to send her before the wedding of specific shots you love. My photographer has shot with me many times so she knew what I wanted and thankfully this was 1 area I didn't need to stress! I did, however, forget to walk around and take pictures with my friends and family :( SO much going on so have your photog remind you if this is important because you will forget!

- To first look or not to first look, It really is obviously up to you but sometimes things don't go the way you planned. For my wedding it was sprinkling all day and was suppose to start raining at 3pm or so which meant the possibility of no pictures after the ceremony (Even though I know my photog and I are always down for some rainy pictures!). Thinking back on it, although seeing him for the first time privately really was special, I still wish I would've just waited as I originally wanted. So stick with what you've always dreamed of doing and that applies to all aspects of your wedding. Oh and don't forget to do a first look with your DAD!!!

Videography:


Videography by Tanner Dunn // The FRVR

- First make sure if you are or are not getting the raw footage (I did and it's so nice to have those) but if you are not, ask them if they can at least record the full speeches or the full father daughter dance etc...because those you want to cherish and not just have little snippets of.

- Most people wouldn't think about this but make a shot list or a list of clips you for sure want in your video or footage you want in general. For example, think about the entire day and list a couple things you want to see. For me I wanted clips of my mom and bridesmaids helping me get ready, Rod getting ready, First look with future hubby and/or dad, Sparkler fun, the important dances of the night etc...most is common sense but you'd be surprised. Be safe and at least throughly check the past work and let them know what style you like. I think the one thing I told my videographer (besides song choices) was that I LOVE the look of heartfelt songs paired with fun clips of laughing or smiling. You can see what I mean in my video from the last post. Lastly, this goes along with what style of video you want but let them know whether or not you want talking in your video like hearing pieces of your vows etc. I'm not a fan of interrupting a beautiful song with the sound of my own voice haha so I opted to say no. :)

Florist:



- You have your vision and you do the best to show them what you want without seeing it first hand so this is where you need to be the MOST specific even down to how much of a particular flower you want in your bouquet. Show them LOTS of inspo pictures!! They also often improvise if they didn't get a certain leaf or flower in so make sure to tell them what you absolutely don't want to replace it if they have too and whether you want them to let you know. They usually make your bouquet the night before so make sure they send you a picture so you can have them make any changes ahead of time. In my case there were a couple things I wish she would've told me before hand and she did have to make some changes to my bouquet once I got to our venue but I would've rather not dealt with that in that moment. Overall everything turned out beautiful but I definitely should've just re-confirmed everything (flowers, colors of flowers, the types of leaves etc) the week of.

DJ:




- Please make a list of songs, even if they have a detailed website trying to narrow down the style you like, make one anyway of as many as you want. Minimum of 10.

- Pick your last two songs of the night to end with...It really makes the end of the night feel so much better. I picked Grease "Your the One That I Want" as my second to last song and Dirty Dancing "The Time of My Life" as my last song of the night!! SO fun!! I was very intoxicated...ok actually like EXTREMELY intoxicated but I do remember these two songs and my amazing sister in law letting me run to her as she lifted me up and spun me around Dirty Dancing style! haha! One of the best parts of the night for sure.

- Make sure he knows that (if you allow it) if someone requests a song, to play it when it fits into the night. Blend! Unless of course its you or the groom asking for it lol I know I had many drunken requests for my poor DJ.

Coordinator:



- Make sure you vibe and she/he really see your vision, they may not agree but make sure they know to not pressure you. They have to know your budget and stick with it.

- I really appreciated when my coordinator took my wedding book and passed it around the room while they were eating so everyone could comment and sign it. Just something to let your coordinator know you want if they don't already know.

- Double check if they save you a box with some desserts and a slice of your cake. (Mine didn't and it really was such a bummer because I didn't think about it) Upside is I know where the shop is and I willlll be going to get the same cake for an anniversary someday. I used The French Confection Co. in LA and they were soooo good, speaking from the tastings anyway!


Last but not least, remember to stop and soak up different moments of the day. I made sure to look at everyone as I was walking down the aisle, just don't forget to look at your husband first! This day will go by so fast and no matter what doesn't go the way you planned, it will be a day to remember! I LOVED my wedding, I will never forget getting ready, singing "going to the chapel" on the way to the venue with all my bridesmaids, our pastor's words and connection to our family (since he's known rod since he was a kid), the speeches, Pey playing in the sand in our pictures, cake shoved in my face, the father daughter dance and our first dance but most of all having everyone that was their to make it so special.

Oh and if I forgot anything, please comment so others can learn from your tips as well!


The MaliBrew Wedding | 11.20.16

Wednesday, September 13, 2017
It's finally happened!! I finally finished my blog about my wedding! I don't know why I've been procrastinating so much, oh wait ya because since then we've had a honeymoon, birthday, pregnancy, gender reveal party and now I'm just plain lazy at almost 30 weeks prego lol. Seriously though, sitting at a computer for a long time is super uncomfortable these days so I had to do it little by little. But I just had to share my wedding details, give tips and gush a little bit but more than anything share my favorite parts and pictures of the day!

First things first, for our wedding website I used Appycouple, which I loved because it was clean and easy to set-up.


We also decided to get an airbnb in Malibu to hold all of our immediate families (15 people) and it worked out perfectly!! The house was beautiful and provided great lighting. Rod and I also didn't get super traditional, we stayed together the night before with our Daughter and started the day together until the makeup team arrived.


The morning of the wedding I woke up wayyy to early to watch the sunrise and was planning to go back to sleep for a couple hours but then everyone started waking up! Even on my wedding day I'm not gonna be able to get rid of the mommy bags. 
Once everyone was up the makeup and hair started at 8am since the forecast showed it raining after 3pm and we would now have to do a first look if I wanted to get any pictures. Anyone who knows me knows I'm all about the pictures! 
We finally arrived at the venue I think at 2ish because obviously we ran late and the limo was at the wrong address 20 minutes north! I have to say that I was super calm about everything and even my best friend said "who are you?" haha. On the day of I think you've done all you can to make everything how you want so really you have to shrug everything off as best you can and no more stress, I mean it was RAINING at my wedding!



Dress by Pronovias




The limo arrived and we passed all the men taking pictures and it was really hard not to look at my groom. Especially when his sisters were getting teary eyed over how handsome he looked! When I got out of the limo he was already set up on the cliff waiting for me and I was instantly filled with so many emotions and tears. I remember looking back at my bridesmaids and saying "oh my god!". He was my picture perfect knight in shining armor. I will always remember those feelings because I took a mental snapshot so I wouldn't forget.

Finishing the first look pictures and waiting in the restaurant for my que to start walking towards my Dad, I was super anxious. Anxious to walk down the aisle, anxious to see all of our close friends and family smiling, anxious to hurry up and be married to this man already!!





As I started walking I could hear my friend Tiffany Dunn and her friend singing our mashup song by Straight No Chaser called "I'm Yours/ Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and I've seriously been waiting to hear this song down the aisle since 2010! When I got closer to Rod, seeing him wipe his tears pretty much made my day, is that bad?? I really was hoping that he would be emotional because he very rarely is so it meant that much more!

After our pastor, who has known Rod since he was little,  gave a PERFECT heartwarming message, we were announced as Husband and Wife. Again, being very passionate about music, I clearly can remember going back down the aisle to Clean Bandit "Rather Be", which is a song that will always remind me of cruising down the Amalfi Coast in our little Fiat, since that's where we heard it for the first time. Needless to say, all of our songs we picked had a lot of thought/meaning behind them.



















For the rest of the night and through all of the speeches I really tried to soak it in as best I could, the strings of hanging lights and pillars of candles was everything I wanted. By the end of the night I really turned into this 21 year old girl that didn't know how to drink alcohol and who didn't care about the rules!! Pretty sure I had countless Whiskey shots ( and I hate whiskey), a couple tequila shots and half a bottle of Ace that I shared with my hubs. We were the definition of lit. Anyone who knows me, knows I have four drinks and I'm wasted so I wasn't surprised when I woke up on the couch (husband in our room) and couldn't remember anything past getting into the limo while it was pouring rain 😂

I do have to say that there is a hilarious video out there of my sister in law and I performing the classic scene out of Dirty Dancing when the DJ played "The time of my Life" for our last song of the night (requested by me obviously).

There were so many stand out moments from our wedding and even the things that went wrong (only I would notice) all contributed to make this day/night so memorable. My wedding had everything I wanted and I couldn't be happier with all the memories I kept and all of the ones captured by video and pictures!

Finalllllly, here is our wedding video that I'm completely obsessed with by The FRVR

24 Week Bumpdate

Wednesday, August 16, 2017
Happy bump day! lol

I feel like I just did a bump date but there is definitely a huge difference between 20 weeks and 24 weeks....I mean dannnnnng. For me anyway, I feel so much heavier but she also is just so low...but more on that in the real talk section at the bottom. I mean they do grow about 2 inches (from a mango to eggplant) and double their weight between 20 to 24 weeks, so it can't just be me!

It's unreal that I am already at 24 weeks...well 25 weeks 3 days as i'm writing this. If that doesn't sound crazy to you...what about the fact that I have 14 weeks and 4 days left till my due date?! gah! Ya.....I have nothing done yet. Seeing as I know she will be with me for the first few months...I'm not super stressed on getting her room done. However, I am feeling the need to organize something! Anyone else procrastinating on their second?? 

           

How Far Along? 

24 Weeks exactly! ( When I took these pix anyway)

Thought I would post my last 20 week just for comparison! And if you noticed the missing tattoo...it's because I forgot which side I took the picture on so I just flipped the picture to face the same way!


Total Weight Gain?   

I've gained 4 lbs in the last month>>>12lbs total...my guess is 10 more lbs by my due date.

Baby Brain? 

Doesn't even begin to cover it, I'm apparently slightly dyslexic now too. I require people around me to finish my sentences for me and if you say something before I can get my thought out....whelp its gone. I also get overwhelmed and sidetracked VERY easily these days. I could go on....I've tried to put the almond milk in the microwave instead of the bottle, my glass of water in the fridge instead of the Brita ( which isn't that bad I guess), I had Peyton wearing her romper the wrong way for almost the whole day and it wasn't a new romper...I knew how to put it on! And for the record, the only reason I remember doing these is because I write them down in my notes...NOTES...a absolute necessity these days!

Exercise? 

I attempted to go to the gym again (since my 15 minutes of gym time back in September) and alas...Peyton lasted 10 minutes. There were so many kids that I think she thought she was on a normal playground and kept calling for me since no one was paying attention to her. I know I know, I have to let her get used to it but I'm not paying $7 for 15 minutes until she does! Plus I was literally crying on the elliptical knowing that when I peaked in after the bathroom she was already calling for mommy and looking for me :(  It's just not for me!

Mood?  

I'm starting to get anxious because I know how fast my due date is going to come, I don't think the hubs is prepared for the difference this will make! He will be taking over a lot more duties especially the first few months...and this time I have to remind myself that I don't have to be superwoman.

Baby Movement? 


When I went in for my last appointment the doctor said "that's a chill baby" because the heart beat was at 145, as it has been since day 1. Peyton was 155-160 the whole pregnancy and boy does that shine true! lol

Best Moment This Week?  


I have a lot of these moments but I love taking a mental note of walking with Pey in hand and a belly full of gentle nudges and kicks...I'm trying to remember this pregnancy as much as I can and relish in these moments of "wow, I'm pregnant with another baby girl".

Looking Forward To? 

Seeing this baby girl, now more than ever I'm starting to wonder what little things she will share with her big sister...same color hair? EYES?! same big feet and long toes? lol I could go on and on...the magic of creating someone is really mind blowing sometimes!

Real Talk?

Vagina Carpal Tunnel....ya I said the same thing..."Whaaaa??". Apparently it IS a thing and when I told my doctor that the sensation I was feeling down there felt similar to Carpal Tunnel she said thats exactly what it was! Fun stuff right? For those who haven't experienced the wonderful tingly feeling of Carpal Tunnel, it feels like frost bite on your hands/fingers and you really think they might fall off. It gets soooo cold, numb and the pain is excruciating sometimes. Whelp, that same cold and numb feeling is what I feel down there every once in awhile and it is sooo uncomfortable! So for those that experience this...its normal and more likely to happen after your first child because the baby can slide lower down which presses on the nerves and cuts off blood flow. blah. Just something else to add to the list of "WTH no one told me's". You're welcome. 👌

As always I hope someone can relate!

20 Week Bumpdate || Half way!!

Saturday, July 15, 2017
Yayyy!! I'm excited to finally start posting about my second pregnancy and the difference I feel and SEE between Peyton and this little girl. So first of all the first trimester up until 18 weeks was full of constant nausea and fatigue, I would literally fall asleep on the couch with Pey on my phone or ipad next to me. Hey I would prefer another method but it's survival, I really felt like I had to sleep to survive! Needless to say I was reconsidering my want for having 3 or more children but I'm glad the decision was made for me! For those who don't know, since we are having another girl ( Which I really wanted ), we will eventually have to try for a boy to keep his family name going. Rod also has no boys in his family besides him and I may or may not want a little mamas boy too.



Now on to the bumpdate, I decided that for some of them it would be fun to keep the first pregnancy answer under the question to see what is different, so you will notice a 1st pregnancy and 2nd pregnancy title before the answer. Here are some bump pictures from the beginning till now 💕


Not much of a difference between 8 weeks & 12 weeks except my tan! (right after our Maldives Honeymoon)



It's weird how different angles make you not look as big as you think because when I look down I feel a lot bigger! Here's another angle just for fun...oh and my belly button has been out since week 8!



How Far Along?  

20 Weeks, 5 Days
 
Total Weight Gain?   

So far 8 lbs, which seems to be right on track with my last pregnancy ( gained 16 total) so this time I'm not as worried. Don't ask me how because the baby is measuring about a week bigger but it definitely has to do with the nausea for the first 16-18 weeks and the heat of summer time that makes me want light foods like salads, veggies and fruit! 

Maternity Clothes?  

Um ya I was in these like 9 weeks into pregnancy, the all to familiar uncomfortable feeling of having any sort of pressure on my lower abdomen was back very early. A long with a lot of other things that I will get into at the end of my post.

Gender?  

A second baby girl!!

Cravings?  

I could seriously copy and paste everything I wanted first pregnancy right here. All I want is fruit and salads with lots of avocado. This pregnancy however I have been craving bagels and cream cheese as well as banana and peanut butter sandwiches...everyday. I DON'T want anything to do with pasta, especially after throwing it up on our honeymoon. And anyone else going from "hmmm I'm starting to get hungry" to "FEED ME i'm gonna die!" in less than 10-15 minutes?? Because that's me, I HAVE to eat something every 2 hours or I risk dry heaving, so crazy how empty you feel!

Miss Anything? 


My how my response has changed since last time! I miss having motivation and energy to want to work out or really do anything, no but seriously, I do fun stuff but I really wanna just lay on the couch with my feet up eating a Paletas ( those who know...know). 

Baby Brain? 

2nd pregnancy: 
Hmmm...where do I begin?? Forget about making sense anymore because I rarely do. Trying to remember ANYTHING is just like winning the lotto, It will never happen but you always think it might be different this time ( As I walk out of the diaper aisle, forgetting I just told myself I needed diapers). Lists are my best friend, if I can remember to write them down or even rememeber what I needed to write down in the first place. Guys, its bad. I kid you not, we just pulled out of the Wells Fargo to deposit and got down the street when I exclaimed "we didn't go to the bank!". Then I remembered, as my husband looks at me with a great deal of concern. 😂

1st pregnancy:
"Ok so this could also go under "best moment this week" but it's only considered funny because I got lucky!!! First I didn't pay the parking meter in LA, on 3rd street, on a Sunday for over 2 hours!!!! And I got no ticket!! This is truly a rare event and complete blessing!

Second, is reallllly embarrassing and very bad. I was in such a rush at the next spot I went to that I left my keys in the ignition and car unlocked.....yaaaa I know. It's bad. Sooooo I'm getting close to losing my driving privileges haha."


Exercise?  

2nd pregnancy:
Not working out seems to have just become a part of my life since the first pregnancy, my workout is my crazy toddler and building a human ✌

1st pregnancy:
To be honest I've had such a hard time with exercising my entire pregnancy. I'm normally at the gym 3-4 times a week not including Pilates and yoga sessions. Yes I know it's good for you and helps you a lot during birth but I can't get the motivation or the energy! It doesn't help that since hitting the third tri, I've started getting nauseous again,  headaches and moments of losing my breath. Fun stuff. 

Symptoms? 

All my symptoms I'm just gonna go ahead and throw in the "real talk" section...

Mood?  

I go through waves of feeling overwhelmed and emotional, I don't really have the feeling of guilt yet. If you don't know, a lot of moms start to feel guilty about having another child or child of the same gender because they don't want to feel like they are replacing the current child or not sure how they will love that much. I'm hoping I don't go through that because I'm just over here worried about how I will have enough energy for two social fire signs! I'm a water sign, surrounded by fire! lol.

Baby Movement? 


2nd pregnancy:
Im hoping this means that this little girl will be a lot more chillax because she doesn't move nearly as much as her big sister did. I still felt movement at the same times but she will not let you feel them on the outside!

1st pregnancy:
When is she not moving?! Peyton moves EVERY hour and has hiccups 3 times a day. Haha it's really cute. Seriously though, even my doctor says she is extremely active, the first kicks I felt from her were at 14 weeks!! Rod felt her kick at 16 weeks, and we even have a video of a crazy kick outside my stomach at 17 weeks. She's a muscle baby for sure! 

Best Moment This Week?  


Pey coming up during these photos and hugging and kissing her baby sissy!

Looking Forward To? 

2nd pregnancy:
Reading the last response, I am now wondering if breastfeeding will be different and if I will go as long as I did with Peyton. I do know that I will be using bottles a little more so I can keep my sanity with having two kids! Then again I say that now.

1st pregnancy:
As weird as it is to say, I'm really looking forward to breastfeeding and having that skin to skin closeness. I've been dreaming about being a mom since I was a toddler, with my set of quince dolls, so I'm looking forward to every thing about being a mom!

Real Talk?

2nd pregnancy:
Ok so my real talk from the last post during the first pregnancy was crazy to read since I went until 22 months before weaning. Don't get me wrong though, I would've had no problem breastfeeding through pregnancy and continuing but (and this is where the real talk starts) it got sooooo awkward! Moms say that they were too sensitive or it was too painful and I always figured I would just tough it out, ya definitely not. It wasn't a matter of toughing it out and I in know way believe breastfeeding is a sexual thing but when you get pregnant the sensitivity doesn't even cover what you are feeling. I literally couldn't stand to breastfeed anymore, all the normal sensations had come back and I couldn't have her latch for more than 5 minutes before I was just too uncomfortable. I'm thinking not every mom feels that way because for me it was impossible to continue past 12 weeks pregnant, whereas other moms go through the entire pregnancy! 

Anyway, now that I've said my piece on that subject can we talk about how everything gets fuller, bigger and harder so much faster!? From your boobs to your Who-ha, everything gets swollen fast and also very tender! There are even spots on my tummy that feel bruised depending on the babies position, anyone else get that?

Lastly, this has been bugging me and I have been trying to figure out how to say it without giving the wrong impression. If you ask a soon to be mom if they want a girl or a boy and once she answers, you say "well as long as they are healthy, that's all that matters". Why even bother to ask? This has really become my pet peeve because OF COURSE all we want are healthy babies, they are OUR babies! But we shouldn't need to feel shamed or need to feel bad just because we like to think about if it's a girl or a boy. Don't ruin the excitement! And don't ask what we would like, if you intend on saying that after. I even find myself answering the question and then quickly saying "but I just want a healthy baby over anything else". I shouldn't need to feel like I am already being a bad mom by answering your question by saying what I've always dreamt of having. Is it just me?

1st pregnancy:
I'm kinda bummed that we are so behind other countries when it comes to breastfeeding. I'm going to push/hope for a year of breastfeeding (with solids incorporated obviously) but don't understand why we think it's weird to breastfeed longer, I see nothing wrong with it if it's just at night before bed especially. No I'm not a mom that wants my child with teeth running up to me and pulling down my shirt but I could only see benefits of incorporating it still after a year. Anyway, no judgements either way but it's been on my mind! 

_________________________________________________________



Alright so I feel like I had a lot more to say this pregnancy! Any one else have pet peeves? I hope some of you can relate and I'm excited to keep updating every month. Time is flying by so I'm trying to soak up both my growing toddler and this growing pregnancy. 💕  Stay tuned for a post on how I weaned and sleep trained!


Mommy Favorites || The Baby Cubby

Wednesday, June 28, 2017
Hi ladies!

I wanted to share some of my favorite items from this company I was lucky enough to work with! These items, ok besides the clothes, are all must haves in my book and I hope it helps some of you.


First I wanted to tell you a little bit about this company, they are based in Utah and they are determined to provide the best (and best reviewed) products out there. Every one of the products have  been researched and picked by them as being perfect for our little ones. The name Baby Cubby is representation of that, when we were little we always stored important things in our cubbies and this store represents all those important things that you love.

So definitely bookmark this site because it will never steer you wrong! Here are some of my favorites and some items that I will be ordering for this next baby!


                                                              Bumbleride Indie

I love a few strollers but I've always been a fan of the Bumbleride Indie. When looking for a stroller my first priority was the one wheel in front! It's easier to steer and push with only one hand, which we all know is very beneficial.  
Waterproof, Washable and stylish
I love these to catch Peys food

4Moms Spout Cover



This is genius especially for my
husband who could never really

I still use this thing and the back support is huge for me
because I have major back issues














Medela Pump in Style Advanced

This worked amazing for me and
would highly recommend it.
Also most insurances cover it for free.
                                Boon Star Drain Cover















Fridababy Fever Frida / Fever Frida Patches



       
                        Sakura Bloom

                                                          KicKee Ruffle Footie
