Post Partum » Week 30


Weigh In: 139lbs
Lost: 14lbs


I was glancing at a huge bird that flew directly above me!

It’s been a long hard road to losing this weight. I’m not sure if it’s age related but I feel like my weight does not want to budge. My motivation was a wedding in Connecticut over Labor Day weekend. It was my first time visiting my husband’s home state. I am in love with CT! My kids had a great time also. We flew in Boston and spent an afternoon at Boston’s Children’s Museum. My kids are still raving about it! They want to go back. Megan said it was “the awesomest day ever!”

My husband’s cousin Cong got married to a beautiful woman, Dieu though her family calls her Le. Check out the video below:

Our kids were Cong and Dieu’s flower girls. My 3 year old freaked out during the walk down the aisle, dumped the entire basket of flowers and high tailed outta there. My husband luckily was there, scooped her up and made the trek down the aisle with a nervous flower girl.

At least she did her job for about 5 seconds.

This was a really long overdue post. May 5th, 2012 began with an early flight from Houston’s Hobby airport, flying to New Orleans. As always the first thing people notice about New Orleans is the humidity. The air was thick and without any breeze. To me, it’s still home (even though I reside in Houston now). The usual quick drive from New Orleans to Gulfport, Mississippi was a little delayed due to road construction (on a Saturday – you got to be kidding me). Instead of going straight to the in-laws place for outfit change and makeup touch ups, I headed to the shopping outlet.


Because I forgot my strapless bra! And shape wear.

We were late to Debbie’s wedding at Nativity BVM Cathedral. My husband was able to revisit fond memories of this Church. He attended Nativity BVM from first grade to sixth grade. It was good to be there with him and support Debbie and Mac’s union.

I have to give photo credits (besides the photo booth pictures) to my friend (and one of my groomsmen) Tobie Nguyen. All my photos were not good. His are so much better.
