As I browsing through one of my favorite websites, Babble.comI found this article...
Foods to Avoid While Pregnant. (I am really obsessed with getting pregnant, I am not???)

This article lists some foods that pregnant women should avoid...
I was surprised how much foods I should avoid....(well, I am not pregnant...yet, but you know, it's better to prepare early, right?)

I knew we shouldn't eat raw fish when we're pregnant, but I didn't know we should avoid some vegetable too!! I love broccoli and radish!
We, Japanese, use radish (daikon radish) a lot in Japanese food....
And packaged salad??? I like "spring mix" salad package.. I shouldn't eat it?
I can eat it if I wash them really good... right???

I don't know... if these lists are really bad for pregnant women...
Because Japanese eat sushi even though they are pregnant, I've never heard of veggies that should not be eaten.

Being pregnant is more difficult than I thought.
But I'd still love to get pregnant!!!

Sunday Brunch~~

Peanuts  Butter and Nutella French Toast with Fresh Strawberries.

For some reason, as I woke up this morning, I craved french toast so bad.
Even though my fiance ate cereal quick for his breakfast because he was busy moving some stuff from a self storage to our garage, I took a time to make this french toast using my favorite Nutella for only myself...

Recipe is simple,
Just spread peanuts butter and nutella on one side and sandwich with another bread. 

Soak it into milk and egg mixture, and cook on a pan. 
And sprinkle some cinnamon and fresh strawberries that my mother in law bought from a farmer's market. 
That's it!!
The french toast's sweetness and strawberries' sweetness and acidity make this dish great, and a little bit of spiciness from it!!! 

It was a great waking-me-up dish for Sunday morning~~

Treasury: Blue Ribbons~~

I posted a new treasury today.
I love this color!!!

Blue Ribbons

I just wanted to collect wonderful creations in blue, but I didn't know what to name this treasury...
Then I came up with "Blue Ribbons", reminding me of blue ribbon prize.
These are worth getting blue ribbon prizes!!

**BIRCHBOX** August 2011

I've been looking forward to getting this my first birchbox!!
Finally it arrived today.

I've got 4 things and extra (twistband)

1. Befine/ night cream + Exfoliating Cleanser

"Upgrade your nighttime routine with this lush cream -- cocoa spurs circulation, while rice bran keeps skin supple and healthy."

***I haven't tried it yet. I will post a review once I try it.

2. blinc/ Mascara

"This game-changing mascara encases your lashes in a thin tube of water-resistant formula that won't smudge, smear, or run." 

**I haven't try it yet, I'm not sure when I will because I have so many mascara that I need to finish.

3. kate spade new york/ Twirl

"This flirty scent is a fresh update on the classic fruity floral."
**I like this scent because I love fruity and floral scent.
    But it is a bit strong for me.
**When I tried this on, my fiance was standing close to me and He got a bit of this on his hand, so he said..."Ewww.. I smell like a girl!"

My whole body is aching・(×_×)・゚゚!!!

Sunday, my friends and I played volleyball in a tournament in LA.
It had been a while since we played it last time.

This is a pic of a tournament in 2009... 

We played 4 matches from 9 am to 5 pm.
I love playing volleyball in a tournament, because we get to play it competitively.
But what sucks about is that since we live in San Diego, we have to leave SD early morning, around 6:30
to get to LA.....
And we have to drive down to San Diego for 2 hours after playing all day.
That is quite exhausting.
But what great about it is that we get to eat great food in LA!!
Every time we go to LA for a tournament, we go to a restaurant after the games.
This time, we went to Chinese restaurant, which was so good!!

It's been 2 days since we played, but I'm still sore... my whole body is aching (>o<)!!
I bet I was walking like a robot at a restaurant as I worked
I hope it will get better soon...

My banner~~!

One of my great friend has a degree on graphic design.
So I asked him to my my Etsy shop business card, banner, and blog button.

Here is my Etsy shop banner!!

Love it!! I love teal, blue green, turquoise color so this is perfect for me :)

And Blog Button is on right side of my blog home page.
You can grab it for free!! 

How casual it is....

This is my fiance.

                             He is a software tester at a healthy insurance company. 
                             I guess software department is pretty casual. 
                             The place he worked before was casual too. 
                             He even sometimes wears sandals... 
                             I would never thought you could wear shorts and sandals in a work place. 
                             Japaneses always wear suits. You have to be business like all the time. 
                             Even though it is so hot outside. They wear suits.

                             I like this culture. 
                             It doesn't matter how you wear as long as you do your job. 
                             Love it!

July Favorite!

  I decide to start blogging about my favorites of the month.

  • First as I blogged this before, candles!!

Caribbean Escape
Seaside Escape
Island Margarita

  • eos lip balm (summer fruit)
smells so good!!!!!
I couldn't believe how good it smelled at first. 
I bought it because almost all beauty gurus in YouTube braved about it. 
I got it at Walmart for about $2-3.
I wanted to get other flavors but all they had was this summer fruit. 

Other flavors: lemon drop, strawberry sorbet, honeysuckle honeydew, medicated tangerine, sweet mint

I love this so much!
Smells sweet and so good!
I use this every night to exfoliate my face and exfoliate my body sometimes. 
It moisturize and smooths my skin so good.
I was surprised by the geneo amount I get. It is so generous amount!
*sorry, the sticker on the jar is pealing off... looks messy...

It's about the owl whose name is Wesley and his girl (author and biologist).
It is beautiful, funny, fascinating, and heart warming story.
I never thought owls are capable of communicating humans. 

This is a love story of the owl and Stacy.

I got my New Screen!!

My old one...

You are probably thinking who would still be using this HUGE screen!?
Yes, I've used it for almost 2 years since my fiance let me use it.

But, I felt like I didn't have enough room for making jewelry with this HUGE screen on my work desk....
So, I decided to buy new flat screen.


22 inch wide screen!!
I love it so much!!!!!

I was surprised how cheap the screens were... mine was around $140.

Weird Dream.....

I had a weird dream last night.

It was about me having morning
Maybe because I saw my friend little girl last night, and my fiance and I just started trying to conceive a baby.
Not we are really trying to do so checking my temperature or find THE DAY...

Get back to my dream,
In the dream, I got so hungry.
And after a while, I got so sick and nauseated.
I didn't know why....
After I realized that I was having morning sickness, I was jumping for joy in my
And I remembered my pregnant friend told me that it got better if she ate something when she got hungry and sick.
But I didn't want to eat anything because I didn't want to gain unnecessary weight...
So I was trying to putting up with this morning sickness....

Then I woke up.
That was a really wired dream....

I hope this dream comes true~~~
