My 2010 far!

Sooooooo, I've been very busy gosh I slept only like 3-6 hours a day, and I have never really tell the story to you all :) Remember when I wrote about my engagement?
So apparently he bought the ring a while before he popped the question. He kept it in a check books box and put it on his desk. Apparently, his family, MY friend Vina, and most of his friends knew about it and I was THE ONLY ONE who didn't knew... GOSH!! I couldn't believe it! MY friend actually sealed her lips!! I was and still am shock, in a good way though :)
A few days after he bought the ring, I kinda had a fight with him. It was so stupid, but happened anyway hehe! After he proposed, he told me that when we had a fight, he wanted to say, "Hey I bought you a ring, so lets not fight!"
One night, we were just relaxing at home, about to go to sleep. Then all of sudden he got up and sat on his desk, checking his inbox and such. I didn't really pay attention. When he got done and got up, I told him to check on the baby crib. Then he told me the baby has something for me. I thought he was messing with me. He convinced me and I finally got up and check on the baby. I saw a ring laying next to our baby!!! He got on his knee and popped the question :) And I said yes!!! Yay!!

That's my engagement story :
Now my wedding story. Let me tell you something, there was no plan at all. So, we were at a family dinner in Olive Garden, Birmingham, Alabama. There was his parents, sister + boyfriend, grandma, our friend, Vina, and of course our little angel.
I'm not sure whether it was after we ate the meal or before, but he asked, "Wanna get married tomorrow?" and I casually said, "Ok!" without realizing what I was getting myself into :P
The next day, I woke up, took shower, had a pancake in the car, went to The Summit to find a wedding dress. It was quick! Then we went to get the ring, and when we get to the court, I saw my wedding bouquet. It was beautiful!
Then the wedding, it was very simple. We signed the paper, then the vow. I never thought the vow is going to be amazing! That time, was the happiest time in my life. For the first time, I felt like I made the right decision, being with the right man. Everything felt so right!

In my heart, I was more than happy! A simple wedding is what I always had in mind...actually, I never thought about getting married, never dream of having a wedding. The wedding I saw on TV scares the hell out of me! I don't wanna be a bridezilla aaaaaaaaaaaaa noooooooooooo!!!! Ok, enough my drama queen moment xD
Anyways, I love my dress so much. So simple, so lovely! Honestly, I dread the idea of a hot, stuffy heavy ball do they walk in that anyway???
I don't care for extravagant halls and a guest list that is a mile long. If something doesn't pan out quite the way that I planned, that's okay, something else will come a long. I love simplicity. My day is about the love I share with my hubby-to-be and that's all that really matters.

Lets get some shoes!

Obsession: Lanvin gown

My dream gown :)

Silk-mousseline embellished gown by Lanvin
Have a lovely weekend!

From me, to you

Every time I look at the photo album when my daughter was born, I fall in love. I fall in love with my husband and our lovely angel all over again. Every day.
I feel like I am the luckiest girl on earth every time I think about the day when our daughter was born, my husband stayed with me and supported me in the delivery room, then cut our daughter's umbilical cord. He was my biggest supporter! He hold my hand tightly and kissed my forehead when I was in pain. He stayed next to me while I was sleeping after I got my epidural :D

I am very thankful and blessed to have my husband and daughter with me. I couldn't imagine how my life's gonna be without them. I love them so much that I can't describe it. They are my inspiration. They are my happiness. They are my biggest supporters. They are my precious!
I love you, Matt and Magali. I love you both so much!

I have found my happiness. I am content.

Anthropologie New Arrivals.....AGAIN!! And stuff I'm looking for

New arrivals AGAIN??? Oh noooooooooo! Here's my picks, all in green :)

Glimpse-Of-Glitz Tank by C. Keer {#013150}
Immediately in my wishlist! This top is adorable! Versatile and casual at the same time. Look at the neckline details and the bow, how beautiful! You can dress it up with black pants and a blzer, or dress it down with crop jeans and flip flop to make it casual but classy :)

Vintage Lace Chemise by Leifsdottir {#18424788}
This top is so cute, also available in white, looks so angelic. I love it, perfect for hanging out at the beach all day, but $188 for it? Well, even though I love it, I wouldn't spend that much for a cotton top...

Lovely Tuesday!

Lovely lovely lovely Tuesday! I love this Tuesday!
After school, my hubby, and I and our baby went to sell some of our clothes at Platoz Closet, then shop a little but at Tuesday Morning. I love that shop, we got a lot of gifts :)
Then Hy-Vee for Chinese lunch, and more shopping around Lindalle Mall while he stayed at Starbucks in Barnes and Noble. I scored Jessica Simpson beautiful leather carry-on bag, it's brown and gold. Love it! I couldn't find it online though... But anyways, the price was $142, but went on sale for $39.99! What a great deal! I'll take a picture some time :D But yeah, it's perfect size for the weekend or just carry-on. Will fill it up with lots of diapers and formula for the trip! {In case you don't know, I am flying back to Bali, Indonesia on the 22nd of May}
I am so in love, so madly in love with my hubby and my baby!


In the mood for quote

Yup! Life is about letting go... Let go of the bad memories in the past, be positive thinking and move on :)

Smile whenever you're sad. Let the world see you're a happy and strong lady! ;)

Have a beautiful day! x0x0

More New Arrivals!

Hello lovelies, hows your weekend?
I love mine, especially since I am with Matt and Magali, my weekend is just simple but lovely! Last nite we went out shopping then watched movie at home. Of course, I have my favorite chocolate with me hehehe :D And today we are going to a park for grill out. Yay! So excited! Can't wait for my spicy grilled salmon hehe :P
Anyways, have you noticed there are more new arrivals from Anthropologie!! All flowery! Oh gosh...I coudln't resist...
Just about a week ago I wrote about Antro new arrivals, and this week there are more!
So here's my opinion about the new items that I really like ;)

Midnight Roses Top by Deletta
I love it! I received my Secured Corsage Tee in XS green last week, I am in love with the rose embellish! I wore it to school and got a lot of compliments :D
In this top, the chiffon rose embellish is very eye-catching. The pattern is lovely! I think this top will look great with crop jeans or skinny jeans. Great for work, if you're allowed to dress casual :) Wishlisted for me!

Homespun Horticultural Tank by Deletta
Another beautiful top by Deletta! Look at the neckline, ooooohh I am in love! And the shirt pattern reminds me of summer day at the beach in Bali... Oh you, lovely top, you will be mine soon! :D

Pearly Glow Tank by Velvet
I love bows, I love white. Surely I am in love with this top :D It looks so soft and light. Perfect for summer. And it can be washed with machine! Yay! Hehehe... I sometimes think twice to buy clothes that needs to be dry cleaned. Well, this top is wishlisted.
