Chicken congee

22 September 2014 by rathy | Leave a comment

I’m at 38 weeks today. Getting achier as the baby grows and settles into position. She’s very low. We have doctor appointments at least two to three times a week now because of how tiny she is. But then again, I’m also a petite Asian woman. I’m pretty sure she’ll be just fine.

So as I wait for my little one and try to keep my health up, sometimes comfort food is all I need. I made an easy chicken congee with some salted soy beans, cilantro and green onion toppings. Sprinkle with a little pepper and I’ve got one simple yet tasty meal.

Krischel + Ian

16 September 2014 by rathy | Leave a comment

One of our good family friends finally got married! The wedding was beautiful. It took place at the Kitsap Memorial State Park, and the location was breathtaking. They had a lovely outdoor ceremony in the middle of the woods, and lots of rustic charm with every decor piece. I actually designed and laser cut all of the centerpiece location names (which are all of the places they’ve traveled together), as well as the “K & I” cake topper for their wedding. I think those turned out really nice.

My sister was one of the bridesmaids. I was initially a bridesmaid, but at 37 weeks pregnant I didn’t think I should risk it. I was perfectly ok with being a guest.

Also, being that I was very pregnant I decided not to lug around the 5D Mark II to the wedding just to get some photos. I brought along my Fujifilm X-Pro1 and managed to get a few shots.

Congratulations Krischel and Ian!! May your love take you to new places as you travel through this next journey.

Two baby showers

05 August 2014 by rathy | Leave a comment

So as I mentioned in a previous post, my husband and I are expecting. And we couldn’t be anymore happier right now knowing we will have our own child to love and care for.

To celebrate, we were lucky enough to get two baby showers! Well, we had family and friends in Seattle, and then also family and friends in Olympia. We figured we’d divide it up to accommodate family and friends who wouldn’t be able to make it due to timing or location as well as to split the guest list into more manageable numbers.

We had a wonderful time at both, and are so thankful for how much work was put in. The first shower was hosted by my brother-in-law and sister-in-law at their home. The food was prepared by them, as well as my sister-in-law’s sister and mother. Everything looked amazing!

The second baby shower occurred the weekend after and was hosted by my parents and sister. Again, everything looked beautiful and we had several family friends to help with food.

Krischel’s Bridal Shower

30 July 2014 by rathy | Leave a comment

Our good friends Krischel and Ian are finally tying the knot this year! And of course we had to throw a bridal shower for the bride-to-be! The theme was mainly yellow to play off the beautiful yellow diamond engagement ring that Ian proposed to her with while on vacation in Athens, Greece. Sounds like a movie! I was behind the scenes with a big belly, but you’ll see me in the group shot.

A new life begins

24 July 2014 by rathy | Leave a comment

I haven’t been able to work on this blog in a long time. Due to the fact that my husband and I are finally starting a family and we are just about 30 weeks in. Everything has been good health-wise and we are so thrilled to welcome our baby girl come October. It’s been pretty busy otherwise, but I wanted to just post up a photo that I took last weekend of my sister and her daughter. My niece, who turned 13 earlier this month, has grown taller than me! I remember taking care of her as a newborn while my sister went to class during the day at the University of Washington.

B and Mileena

 
It’s been awhile since I’ve had to take care of a baby, but hopefully it will all come back to me. I’m excited for what is to come as our new life begins.
