In The 9's: Everything Is Different Now.....

Welp, this is the final frontier.
Sorry so late posting. I wanted to post earlier but something came up. The end is near. I go in very soon, hell, in two days. How do I feel? Hmm. Relaxed actually. Maybe once I get inside the hospital I'll feel nervous. Im sure I will. But since Greg is gonna be with me, I might be okay. I was talking to my mother this evening, she said "I can't believe your gonna be a Mom." I told her I couldn't believe it either. These 9 months have been amazing, crazy, yet sad experience. I will never forget it. I say sad because, of course, some things...when dealing with life changes, not all people agree with your direction. Sometimes that hurts, especially when you think your life is going to be a certain way. Sometimes, people think your life choices are stupid or want zero part of it. I dealt with that, and that was a hard pill to swallow.
Very hard.

But overall, my pregnancy was great. I had a final OBGYN appointment, even thought the doctor went in to see if I dilated and it kinda hurt. Talk about pressure. T.M.I but ya'll family, I don't care. I look over at the crib and feel, strange. Soon life will be in there. My daughter will be in there. I feel strange just typing that. I still need to put the comforter on.

By the way, THANK YOU to everyone who commented. Who gave their best wishes. Who wished me congrads, who gave me advice about pregnancy and all. Because honestly, you took the time out to say you care. I honestly was touched with all the comments. Thank you so much ladies. I bow to every single one of you. I really appreciated every single comment. And to one follower and bad ass blogger named Kiah from the blog From The Rez To The City...
Your comment, saved me. Saved me from nervousness. Saved me from any doubt. Saved me from worries of being a new mother. You are really an amazing friend that I have never met. LOL! Your comment, did so much to my heart. You gave me such support. The advice you gave just.....made me speechless. Thank you Kiah. I even read it to my husband and he was touched as well. Im going to go ahead and say it, I love you and thank you....
You gave me strength.
This weekend Greg and I drove around like usual and found new places. I won't lie, it was a rough weekend. My family back home on the East Coast was dealing with Irene. They did not get much of anything but rain thank god. My Rosie lost power on Saturday and here it is Monday and still she has no power. My poor boo.

San Marcos

Greg and his Starbucks...

Temecula Way
I thought this was beautiful... in a blurry way...
So as for us, we are looking around slowly for new places to stay. I do love Oceanside and would like to stay here actually. But we shall see. We still have to wait until things fall into place. Thats the thing with life, you sometimes got to wait on other peoples terms. But if it aint work to get, you don't want it. But yes, we are looking here and there. Maybe something a little away from the beach, given the fact its pricer by the ocean. I live about minute away from the water, and that can pinch the pockets.
goofing around

Nothing like Chinese...

Started drawing again. Shocker!
I saw this on Tumblr and it gave me inspiration for a picture. Its been months since I picked up a pencil. It felt good to draw again.
Yeah, so I used the body, made my own face...but she was a good!
Of course this drawing has, hell, too many meanings behind it. Its called Protector...
Im sure u can piece it
hearts exposed

Fashion Passion:
I know Im not showing any fashion of mine right now. But hey, Celebs are doing it for me. I still have my Celeb Candy. So much has been going on in Hollywood, and Im kinda obsessed with it, obviously. Check it out...
Kim K:
Love the outfit so much, and yes, Its Kim, and she is annoying. But I love the sloppy shirt and fringed boots. Best I seen her in awhile...practically perfect.
Beautiful dress...I love feathers, all types...I even saw this nice shawl on F21 that was full of feathers. I showed Rose and she said "What is that? A Chicken?..."
We all heard the news yesterday, I was shocked actually, and it made me smile. She looked stunning and Jay Z looked so happy at the awards while she rubbed her tummy. She looks great in this dress. Man is she glowing...

Wow... I think she is having a girl. What ya'll think? Her belly is kinda low. I think boy in this picture with her belly sticking out...Im confused...Hmm..

Umm. Usually I love a good crazy Nicki outfit, but what is this? She took everything and just stuck it on. Very tokyo inspired but, it seems she went...crazy. I dunno. I hate it. Maybe if she got rid of, I dunno, half the shit in the floor...*side eye*
Is that a tail?


I just love her...
Amber & Wiz:
Bet that night was awkward at the Awards. Usually Amber is always on my celeb candy post but her style has plummeted since her break up with Kanye. Wiz aint making that West money, lets be honest. Her outfit is boring. She looked better with Kanye...

I bow to her, she looked amazing as a man, her alter ego Joe Caldrone. She was, epic. And she did look pretty creepy. Such is such a girlie girl so, to see her dressed like down and normal and as a man....thats crazy! I think she is brilliant.
Loved Kanye's and Jay's performance...Congrads again to Mr. Carter.

So, of course..
Kim got married, yet she is the only one on this cover like she married herself. Ain't that a bitch? Where is her man? Didn't he get married too? Figures. What a dope. But, I must admit....
She looks stunning..
She does

I will post before I go in, actually..
I might do a video. Its been awhile...either way, this ain't the last post till I head in. Promise.
Love you all...
Wish me luck.

The Coldest Summer: Updates On The End...

So much is going on these days.
I will start blogging then stop suddenly given doctor appointments and nice relaxing sleeps. My body is officially, pregnant. This whole pregnancy has been a dream. No pains and barely any gains. I loved it. If this is what pregnancy is all about, count me in again. Well, one day. I got to get Rose pregnant soon so my daughter will have a new best friend or of the two.

I say my body is officially preggers because Im full. I have a belly and now people really really noticed. And most of all, Im about to drop off my daughter. Im pretty stoked. She is officially getting evicted soon. I always thought I would be terrified of the day I give birth but I am very excited. My husband is ready as well, Greggers. He has been, of course, amazing through out this pregnancy. He has been so helpful and always there for me. I can't wait to bring our child into the world for both of us. Me and him are so curious. We wonder who she will look like, who she will act like. I already have a feeling she will be more like Greg personality wise. Her temperament in the womb is so relaxed. She is a kicker and likes to stretch out. One sonogram she had her arm over her head while she was sleeping. Just like Greg. She doesn't squirm, freak out, or stress. Hey, I could be wrong. She might come out screaming like me and turn out being a complete spazz. But the way she moves inside me, Its like I already know her. She is very chill, never made me vomit, or ill. The only thing I noticed is when she is balled on one side of my stomach and I pat her to move....she refuses.
She moves on her watch..
(sounds like me..)

Im still looking at things that need to change. I noticed its people more than me. But Its easy to get rid of people. Yet then again not all people. I guess that will come with practice. Sometimes I feel lost when it comes to certain things, but hopefully I will find my nitch, and find my way.

I still get lots of advice. Some people tell and I take in. Others, I smile and nod then secretly ask myself "How would you know..." I hear so much I could right a book. I love how everyone knows everything. And most things I was told was negative. All about pain and issues, when so far I have been pretty ..well...okay. I'll never understand that.

So, anyway.
Basically. I will be having the Boobooski next week. They induced me. Even though I looked like a ding dong and had to ask what that meant. But they are gonna bust my bubble, literally. Oh man am I stoked. It almost seems unreal. I will make of course a couple of updates then as well. Sorry about the "no fashion" right now. Soon I will be back with a regular stomach soon. But overall, the pregnancy is pretty much over.
Even though I never felt pregnant.
Im excited, and Im going to do my best to be a good Mom (sounds weird saying Mom). I am pretty smitten with her these days already. I never thought I would have my own family. My own new generation started.

Thanx Mom!
Also, I know I stated that California was looking small and that the East-coast was looking our way. But Im not so sure anymore. So far every move we make, points to staying in California.
Over the weekend when Greg was getting his car fixed. Long story, his car went bonkers yet again. The place we go is called Lael's International Auto and the owner Lael is from Maryland my home town. Of course we get the hook up because of that but while we was waiting around, Lael said something that stuck with me. He asked if Greg and I were headed back home (Maryland) anytime soon. We both looked at each other and said the outcome looked like "no" for awhile. And then Lael says to us.."Remember....," he then held his hand over my stomach and said "Where ever she is, that IS home. Remember that."
And I'll never forget that.
More Updates Coming Peeps.........

In The Church Of The Wild

Good Day. Woke up. Un-curled my hair. Looked great. I feel great. Some body parts kinda suck. But other then that, I feel awesome. I love waking up at 9:00 or 10:00, I feel so much more refreshed.
This tube top shirt is something I bought about two weeks ago and Im just now posting it. I loved it because of the print obviously. Torrid was having one of there very few 50% off clearance moments and I got bold and got the oxfords and this top. I paid about 12.99 for this. I love it. It fits great. Looks great and it screams aztec/tribal/ african...whatever you want to call it. I adore it. I was thinking after buying this shirt that this shopping at the mall frenzy is about to come to an end. Mainly because buying any more clothes would be a waste. Im not in the same body as before. Even if I still wear the same size. I guess my blog will become very...interesting after this. Then again who knows, I say one thing, then end up at a shopping center and buy something else...What can I say? Its a coin toss.
Top: Torrid 12.99
Jeans: Marshalls
Shoes: Torrid
Necklace: Forever 21
Boobooski shot:
And more shots below...

So here I was yesterday, with the curlers in. Well, not curlers. More like pipe cleaners but hey, dreads are a lot different than your average hair. I had these in for about three days. It dried up great. And it looks pretty awesome as well. Later on, like next week it will look even better. I love messy curls. Its the best look, just like bed time hair. Im waiting for it to get like that.
Turned out amazing either way...
Heres the back:
Its always sunny in Cali, but today was something else. Everything was green and pretty. I thought I would take a pic of my apartment complex outside my door.
Nice day.

Rose sent me another box. I love her boxes. Sometimes she throws things inside that are meant for surprise! And who does not like surprises?
She sent me these awesome earrings!
I should have worn them with my Outfit Of The Day but my hair is too curly, you wouldn't have been able to see them. Maybe next time...
These are some earrings Rose made for me. I love! Plus the color is amazing. Rose has become pretty crafty with these earrings, I must admit.
She started a craft box.
Of course the box was not all for me:
I love these! They are pretty sassy than your average onesies.
Rose got this outfit as well...

Of course, this one has to be my favorite. Thanx Rosie.

Check out Rose's video for this makeup she got at Sephora that I loved. I saw it around but I never wanted to buy it because of the price, but she found it for about 4.99 I think. Amazing deal, I swear I saw for 15 at the time. The brand is Tokidoki.

~Celeb Candy~

Eva Marcelle
I love the bathing suit. I could not rock it. But hey, the print is amazing. She looks amazing I swear. And I am feeling them shades.

Lady Gaga
My favorite artist had a new video out this week. Loved it. She is so many people in this video called You and I. I felt it was like a Marilyn Manson type video in a way. She is so innovative its hard not to love her.

..............can she ever f&%$ up?............
I even love the bra strap showing, it all just works.

Nicki Minaj
She is beautiful, full of plastic, but beautiful...
I don't mind that she's plastic, I loved Barbie back in the day. And she looks just like her... Love her lip color.
Adorable. I love her hair like that.

Tika Sumpter & Lala
Im kinda obsessed with Tika Sumpter....her style is amazing...

Mary Kate & Ashlee
Their shades kill me..I need contacts....I need shades like those.

Otis by Kanye West & Jay Z
Best song for me right now...I was driving and winding it up in the car yesterday...Oh my my..
I wonder whats happening this weekend.
Lately I have been falling in love with staying in bed watching movies. Greg and I have been talking about buying Insidious and Battle La for this weekends movies. I loved both. But it sucks because then I have to decide whether to buy blue-ray or regular dvd. In the bedroom its regular dvds, but in the living room its all blue ray. Eghh. I guess regular. Can't go wrong with that. Im not a big pixel person. Who knows...
Either way this weekend will surely be a relaxing one.

Have a good day, and float away...
