Pregnant – My 5 Go-To Maternity Looks

Most people think maternity clothes are unnecessary and you can just find jersey maxi dresses or live in baggy shirts and yoga pants. I think differently for this pregnancy. At 6 months, my bump is already as big as a singleton pregnancy at 9 months. The full belly band on some of my pants are […]

Traveling – California Academy of Sciences

On Labor Day weekend, which must’ve felt like the hottest day of the month, we took a family trip to the California Academy of Sciences to use up tickets someone had gifted us. It was nice to see the museum from our son’s eyes for the first time. I have been here many times but […]

Wearing This – I Have a Pineapple Dress

The pineapple pen song was stuck in my head for a week after it first went viral online. A song hadn’t been so annoyingly catchy to me since TI – “Whatever you like.” I forgot about the pineapple pen song for a while until I got this dress, which has pineapples on it. And then […]

Traveling – Carmel for Labor Day Weekend

We considered taking a babymoon during this pregnancy and decided against it because I would probably feel more uncomfortable on a plane and sleeping in a different bed at this stage than it would be to stay at home. This past Labor Day weekend offered an opportunity to do a short getaway to Carmel. It […]

Attending This – Taste of Orleans at Great America

Being part of Great America’s media pool the last two summers has been a fun experience for our family. Especially now that we have a kid, we enjoy the amusement park from a different perspective than when we were children ourselves. It all started with the Taste of Orleans 2016 festival. Then we went to Red White […]

Pregnant – Two’s a Crowd

Of the many untrue wives tales floating around, I chose to believe the one that if you’re having two pregnancies, one will be hard and the other will be easy. In the first pregnancy, I had bleeding in the first trimester and needed progesterone supplements, and then cholestasis rash in my third trimester. I thought […]

Attending This – Red White and Brews at Great America

Last weekend, our family was invited to a media event at California’s Great America. Their Red, White, and Brews event during Memorial Day Weekend kicked off the summer season. We got tasting cards for 5 items as well as beer/wine tastings too. A variety of entertainment including dueling pianists, a live cover band, and picnic […]

Eating This – Coconut’s Fish Cafe

There’s a new fast casual restaurant in town and it’s already a beloved for those familiar with the brand from Maui. Coconut’s Fish Cafe recently opened in Cupertino to an eager crowd tech employees and curious diners who had seen construction in progress for almost 14 months. The family owned brand brings its famous fish […]

Wearing This – City Stripes

This dress and shoe combo has been my favorite this month. The stripes make me feel like I could brew a decent cup of coffee. And wearing shoes with no-show socks feels like a hipster approach to footwear. Let’s talk about these kicks for a minute. They’re the Cole Haan Ella Grand in blue suede. […]

Wearing This – Casual Spring

As a Bay Area home owner, I’ve always aspired to have the kind of front door that random fashion bloggers would pose in front of much like I did the other day in front of this really nice house in the Rose Garden area of San Jose. This classic New England style front door with […]
