Diaper Cake for Baby Girls

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Tuesday, November 3, 2015,
I made a diaper cake for the 2nd time and this time it is for a baby girl. I wanted to send a small congratulations gift to my friend in California after she just gave birth. Here is how it looks like.

 Contents include: a pair of Espirit pink baby shoes (6-12 months), 3 bibs from Juicy Couture, 4 receiving blankets and 16 Size 1 Swaddler diapers. 

Unfortunately, when my friend received this package, everything was unraveled so I suggest that you bind everything tightly and put a lot of bubble ...

Things you gladfully gave up after giving birth to a baby

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Wednesday, May 14, 2014, In : Motherhood 
My newborn is no longer a newborn now that he is 3 months old so I've been doing some reflecting. A lot has changed about me, from my hair to my way of thinking. I put him first before my needs and I am glad to do it. I just want him to grow up happy and strong. Here are some obvious things I gave up after giving birth to a baby, and these are things many moms have done:

  • I no longer have long hair. I now understand why so many moms get a bob after giving birth. My baby is getting to the point ...

Wish past breastfeeders could've warned me about Mastitis when breastfeeding

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Sunday, March 16, 2014,
I was 5 weeks postpartum when I went to the ER a week ago because my right boob was hurting so bad and I was having chills and fevers up to 103 degrees. It was a Saturday and my husband called my OB/GYN office in the afternoon that day to see if we can get a doctor to prescribe me some medicine instead of going into ER. He called twice and there was no response from a doctor so we rushed to the emergency room to ensure my fever doesn't get worse after my last reading was 103 degrees. My assum...

37 weeks and 4 days pregnant and my nose is growing bigger

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Sunday, January 26, 2014, In : pregnancy 
My husband and I decided to not take professional maternity photos for my pregnancy. It was due to a combination of forgetting, delaying and not wanting to spend money for pictures of my unattractive big belly. I figured I'd just wait for my child to be born to take family photos. 

Anyway, since I am growing very massive today at 37 weeks and 4 days pregnant and there is a chance that the baby might arrive earlier than expected, I decided to take some selfies. People say that your nose grows w...

I always get sleepy within 30 minutes after taking my prenatal vitamins

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Saturday, January 18, 2014, In : pregnancy 
I was prescribed prenatal vitamins after the doctor confirmed that I was pregnant in June. It has folic acid which is supposed to be really good for expectant mothers. For some reason, I always get really tired and sleepy after I take them. I started taking them every day at the beginning and I would just get so tired, I couldn't do anything else but sleep. However, every time I would forget to pop one in my mouth, I wouldn't be tired that day. Then, I started to just switch off every other d...

Loving your husband so much

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Saturday, December 28, 2013,
Sometimes I am so overwhelmed by how much I love my husband. He's the person I live for and the reason why I want to live for as long as I can. I fear death because I fear losing him. I love being around him and am so blessed to have him in my life as my partner.

I really appreciate my husband a lot. He works long hours for his job and spends every waking moment with me and thinks of me so much. We've been married for 13 months now and I feel our love just continues to grow as we grow up toge...

Eating McDonald's once in a while, while you're pregnant

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Thursday, November 21, 2013, In : pregnancy 
I rarely crave meat while I'm pregnant but today I was really craving a big mac with fries from McDonald's. I am a very loyal McDonald's eater. I don't like Burger King, Wendy's or even In N Out (a California burger chain). There's a big nostalgic value with McDonald's with me even though I know their quality is crap. It brings back to my happy and excited times when we would pull in the drive-thru and get a meal from my favorite fast food chain as a kid. 

Anyway, today I had it. I ordered a #...

People love pregnant women

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Wednesday, November 6, 2013, In : Motherhood 
I realized quickly that when someone finds out that I am pregnant, they all of a sudden become very interested in me. Something about carrying a child makes you seem more approachable to a lot of people. When people know you are going to become a mother, maybe that nurturing side comes out.

Do it yourself Gift Basket from local goods

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Monday, September 16, 2013, In : DIY 
I am visiting a good friend soon and wanted to bring something local from South Carolina and give it to her when I see her so I decided to make my own little gift basket that is presentable and plane-friendly.  I used a cardboard box that I had at home and wrapped it in brown paper to cover the exising print on the box. Then I used tissue paper to keep the 3 items I have in place inside the box. I made sure I wrapped each item with some sort of clear wrap to keep the products fresh then I wra...

I don't like it when other men touch my pregnant belly, even if it's my dad!

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Tuesday, September 10, 2013, In : Motherhood 

Now that I am 4 months pregnant, I realized I need to be prepared for people trying to touch my pregnant belly as my stomach gets more noticeably bigger. I traveled to California for a wedding last week and my father used his two fingers to poke at my belly. I hope that it's not weird that I found it disgusting that he did that to me. I'm not a touchy feely type of a person and never had an affectionate relationship with my father so I was really surprised that he even thought of doing that. ...

Wedding Welcome Bags - I did it myself

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Thursday, November 15, 2012,
Hi guys,

We did it! We got married and the grand ceremony and reception were exceptionally successful!

One week before our out of towners were coming in, I created welcome bags printing labels at home and sticking them on brown gift bags with tissue paper.

In the welcome bags, I had a bottle of iced tea, a bottle of Powerade, some snacks like oreos, trail mix, cheezit and granola bars to make their stay more comfortable.

I tried to decorate the bags that are my wedding colors. See pictures bel...

Showing tattoo on your wedding day

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Friday, October 12, 2012,
My make up artist and some friends asked me if I will be covering my tattoo on my chest on my wedding with make up. I told them 'no'. I got this tattoo for a reason and I will not hide it. 

Do you get asked that question? Do you have a tattoo? 

My fiance said he doesn't want me to hide anything and that he wouldn't like it if I decided to hide my tattoo because that's a part of who I am now. He doesn't like secrets and that is why we are together. We have the same viewpoints.

Stressed out Bride-to-be - How to cope

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Thursday, October 4, 2012,
I am at the one month mark before my wedding takes place and I am so stressed out.

I have contacted all of my vendors (either called or emailed them) for the last three days to confirm when they'll be at my wedding site and am finishing up last projects in the next week.

My last projects include having my last hair trial, decorating party favors and completing seating chart/guest list for place cards.

Here's how I'm coping with my stress with now.
1. Venting to my fiance. He's been so understan...
