Slacking but I DO Have an Excuse..Sort Of

So I am another month between posts and I am just the laziest human ever..I don't know why I can't post new pics more often since I am home most of the time lately. I've just been absolutely miserable and HUMONGOUS that I don't have anymore clothes that fit me!! I swear if I find something to wear I am happy!! I miss wearing my clothes and jeans and just dressing in clothing other than my shorts and tank..I swear I have swollen ankles already as they have disappeared!! I HAVE CANKLES!! And I've just gotten wide..I'm sad..=(

I HAVE been cooking somewhat..I made corn chowder and this pork loin for hubby but I forgot to take a pic.

We had a night where we went to a friend's bar where they make awesome pizzas...V-Lounge near Ala was yummy....

I have so many things I am eyeing out that I wish I could buy but I cannot buy anything since I don't know what size I need for after the baby and it's not like I have any money to spare on excess!! LOL

We have been going to football games when it's at home because Z is absolutely obsessed with them..we can't even leave early even when I feel terrible because he has to stay until the end..he is hilarious and cheers them on and says, "DEFENSE!"

Good Eats and Gifts

My sister had me run to Shirokiya to grab the castella cake from the Kyushu fair before it was done so I could mail it to her. It is the most expensive castella I've ever seen and I was quite skeptical as whether it would be worth the $30. She offered to buy me one so I did..and is the BEST THING EVER!!!!!! I am so sad that I can't afford to buy 10 of them and freeze them!!!

I think this weekend was filled with lots of great food!! WAY too much for my fat tummy..We drove all the way out to wahiawa to grab meat jun and kimbap from Dong Yang. I forgot to take a photo of the meat jun but I did grab the last photo of the kimbap before I ate it all!!

J & B were visiting our side of the island so they invited us over for bubbles outside with C and dinner courtesy of B's mom..she makes the best food!!! She made this amazing pork chop that I know hubs would be in love with so I think I need to get in the kitchen and start trying to remake it!!!

MissLawn and Bamski were visiting as well..and I am so sad we didn't get to see them but hubs had lunch with them and she gave him a gift for is the sickest little present ever!!!!!! I just wish I could wear it EVERYDAY..but I think I would tarnish it hhahaaha Thank you L & B!!!

OH! Thought I'd ad a outfit photo today..because it was SOOOO funny Z loves running in the camera when he hears the timer and today he was in just his undies so this is a hilarious photo..sorry the pics suck, I haven't found a good place and good lighting for the outfit photos..

EDIT: had to crop out Z frmo this pic cause I was informed some creeps were stealing the pics and linking it to some creepy website =(

Yesterday I took Z to Kahala Mall for the first time in at least a month. Everytime I went there I'd get super sick from all the smells of the food in the indoor mall so I had to stop taking him. But now that I am no longer sick, I thought we'd give it a try. He had so much fun running around he didn't want to leave. Of course, whenever he goes we have to eat at CPK so we went for his usual noodles..and got him a vanilla ice cream for dessert. I had dessert only and it was DELICIOUS!! I ordered the tiramisu and ate the WHOLE thing!!

On another note, living on the east side/windward side isn't so's actually pretty relaxing and even though it's still hot, it's 5-10 degrees cooler here than in town..just need to get used to the drive. But hubby took a photo of the beautiful morning light the other morning...amazing!!

Exploring the Neighborhood

A few days ago Z and went for a walk to Windward Mall since it is right around the corner from our house now. It was really hot but good for us to get outside. He had a blast at the Thinker Toys..much nicer and emptier than Kahala that's for sure. The house is slowly coming many things to take care of and get organized..lots of building of shelves to fit everything we have in the closets and getting lamps and lights and fixing toilets! LOL

We also walked to a nearby restaurant for dinner. There are so many little places to eat here we're so excited to try them all...We went to Kikuya and it was AMAZING! The food was awesome and it made me happy to find someplace really good to eat on the first try. Sorry the pics suck..I forgot to take pics before we started eating I was so hungry! LOL

For dindin last night, I made turkey chili..something I threw together a while back and turned out amazing so I made it again yesterday and was so happy it turned out one yet!!

Lots of Cooking!

So we have been so busy this past week moving to our new home..but now that we've got most of the stuff settled in, I have spent some time cooking and it's nice to actually have a real stove with an oven. Our last 2 homes have had either no kitchen or just a stovetop and no oven. I finally made my spinach lasagna for the first time in a few years..can't remember why I stopped making it. It was the best my opinion HAHAHA..Also made some pork tofu the other night. It was nice and light and perfect for dinner on a hot day where you don't want to feel so overly full. That meal is the perfect combo because I'm not much of a meat eater so I eat most of the tofu and veggies and hubby eats most of the pork LOL

Sorry the pics are not so great..trying to figure out where the best place is to take pics in this house.

Tofu Gyozas

The other day I made my tofu gyoza that my mom used to make for me when I was a kid. I haven't made it in over 6 months..I don't know why we haven't eaten it in so long. I think we were eating it every week for a while and got sick of it. I forgot how much I loved it until I made it again. I swear I ate 10 or 15 for dinner LOL.

Coin Machines

Yesterday, K and K wanted to go to the aquarium so they picked us up and took was fun..all 30 minutes! LOL It's hard to find things for the kids to do for long hours..$6 for 30 minutes..guess that was ok. Z was facinated by the coin machine. The one that you put the penny in and it flattens it out and makes a print on it? Anyway..he kept trying to turn it even when it was done. He didn't even want to penny he just wanted to play with the machine.

I got these sandals from revolve for dirt cheap but I am still debating if I need them..especially because they come up to my ankles and I hate my ankles..I feel like I have cankles! Anyway..I think I will keep. =) Sorry for the hair..Just took a shower about to take Z to the zoo for the day.

Yay For Food!

So the other morning, I made fried rice for Z because we were stuck at home all day and had to make do with what we had in the fridge. I have been starting to chop carrots really tiny and pre-boiling them so that I can add them to these sorts of foods..that way it adds a lot of extra color and a little more nutrition for Z and he can't even taste it..

Tonight I decided to make kalua cabbage with rice for dinner.  I just like the cabbage part with rice LOL. It's funny how much the veggies shrink..I took a pic of the pot when I put in all the cabbage and then after it was done cooking. Half gone! LOL

Oh! I was so happy that I finally found a pair of capris that actually fits my growing belly..the rise is so low that it is button-able without being sizes too big LOL!! So I wore it today!

Slowly Trying to Get Back Into The Kitchen

I haven't been able to cook because the smells make me want to throw up..

I started cooking a little at a time sometimes having to wear a mask so I don't smell things. The other night I made the spicy korean beef soup. And I felt like eating pasta salad so I went and bought the ingredients and made it. It was so yummy and light and refreshing. I love cold pasta salad!!!!

On another note, the weather here has been insanely hot. I think every year, it gets worse and worse. It's hot and humid...and being over 90 degrees is crazy!!! There is no relaxing and you can't even sit in the shade without dying of humidity!! UGH!!!

Has It Been That Long?

OMG..I didn't even realize that it has almost been a month since my last post!! I'm so sorry!! I have been plagued with random things..and being sick and now Z is sick!! I've grown so much that it scares me..I'm so huge I look like I'm 5-6 months preggo and I'm only almost 4!!! I'm afraid to see what will happen at 7 months!! It may NEVER go back!!!! I don't know what is going on because I'm still the same weight but bigger all around..I feel like it may be a girl at how WIDE I've gotten. With Z, I wasn't was all in front so from the back you couldn't even tell I was pregnant even at 7 months! But this one, I've LOST my waistline and I'm just wider everywhere and I've got bigger lovehandles on my waist! YUCK! Anyway..couple more weeks til we find out what it is...but in the meantime, last night I felt like making a cake and the cake mixes were on sale so I made a yellow cake with chocolate pudding and whipped cream..that's the best without frosting..light and yummy..but I forgot to take a pic of the final product so you only get a pic of the chocolate pudding..heeehee

First Outing

Yesterday was my bday and thankfully, I felt normal enough to go out to the father's day concert at Sea Life Park. It was beautiful..and I was glad to be out of the house..I am still having a hard time wearing anything fitting on my belly as the pressure makes me queasy for some I had to wear a loose dress that I hadn't worn in years..since Z was born! We had a good dinner at CPK and then it was too much for me and I had to body wasn't ready for all the craziness..but this morning I woke up and felt the most normal I have in a I am hoping this is a sign that things are going to get better soon!! =)

Oh! I am sad I forgot to take pics of our food..since this was the first time in a long time I actually ordered something different..I was craving ceasar salad so I eat that for dinner instead of my usualy chopped salad! =) Next time..

Trying on Clothes

Today is the first day in almost a month that I felt strong enough to actually put on something OTHER than my PJs..I haven't left the house in weeks..just about 4 times for the doctor or one trip to the grocery store that made me wish I stayed home...I keep hoping there is a light at the end of the tunnel and I will wake up one morning and be totally nausea free and able to enjoy life..I am starting to get a little depressed from being stuck at home everyday and being sick and feeling like throwing up.

Anyway, since I wasn't stuck to the bed or sofa today, I decided to look through my closet and see what I felt like putting on just for least while I can still fit everything I would love to be able to get to wear things before I get too big....thankfully, my belly may be getting bigger even though I've lost weight, I can still fit my clothes and they are loose! =) I put on my lovely pair of Siwys, which I love but haven't even gotten to use them much and I can't wait to get better and wear them out at least 1 more time before I get fat =)

Sorry for the bad pic..the camera is in the car and I am in my house..hence, stuck using the camera on my computer..sorry!

Coma Please

I have been sick for 3 weeks now...for 1 week I was sick with the wrst flu ever..then the morning sickness kicked in so severe that I was throwing up and could not even get out of bed. Doc says I have hyperemesis gravidarum or severe morning sickness and all the remedies, including meds, have not worked...its been a battle of forcing myself to drink gatorade all day and trying to eat as gross as it makes me feel s I don't throw far I haven't thrown up in over a week but the constant seasick feeling will not go away and I have been stuck at home losing it. I keep hoping that one day I will wake up and feel completely better but that day hasn't come. I would love to be in a induced coma until that day comes but that's self pity is lame and I apologize to you readers but I needed an outlet somewhere since I think poor hubby is losing it himself having to do everything in the house...I hope to get better soon so that I can get back to enjoying food and wearing clothes while they still fit me!! Xoxo

Lack of Posts

I apologize for the lack of posts lately..I've been so busy with work, planning
Z's bday party, and being plagued with the flu and now sick from the
antibiotics and puking..I just have no had time to get on the internet much..
I will definitely get back on as soon as I recover!!! =)

Wanted to update since a few people asked if I was ok, I'm doing horrible but hopefully this passes...we found out we are having another baby so I've got the worst case of morning sickness ever..completely bedridden and never ends! Hahaha

Lots of Pumpkin Goodies

My coworkers found a recipe and wanted to test it out and I tried it at home but altered it to make it my first, I made the cookies as it was meant to be..but the texture seemed more cake-like, so I took the remaining batter, added a few dashes of milk and egg and made it into a muffin..I must say, the cookies were good..but the muffins were even better!!! So yay! I am taking them to work tomorrow to see which they like and then they can use my muffin creation at work if they like it!! WAHOO

Spicy Spicy Spicy!

The other night, I made a spicy tofu dish to eat with rice because I got a whole bunch of tofu from work. They always throw it away when they get the new batch and it JUST expires from the SELL BY date..which it isn't spoiled but he rather use the new one so he lets us take them home..pretty awesome. I made this tofu thing that was super yummy and could be eaten with rice but we ended up eating just plain...This morning I made kimchee fried rice with the left overs and it was soo yummy!! Thank goodness L is a friend of mine..she teaches me all these korean dishes..=)
