Happy Monday, dear friends!
As the due date is fast approaching I find myself adding more things to my “last wishes” list, for lack of better term, before I become an official mom. I remember like it was just yesterday that I was wanting to go to this place and that place, and do this and that with such and such friend right before I got married. And now the time has finally come where I start the cycle again before Selah arrives to this little world of ours.
Yesterday was that kind of a day and exactly what the doctor prescribed—a night out with girlfriends after a rather long weekend and a blessed morning service at church.
Emily drove us over to The 3rd Street Promenade and we walked around popping in and out of the stores. We browsed around several places like Zara, which by the way was heavily enticing me with its beautiful outfits that I cannot wait to wear soon, as well as Sephora. Although I have never been a makeup person and usually just plop on some lotion on my face, a bit of powder and mascara, I was more than excited to purchase myself a Bare Minerals Matte powder. It is one of the few things that I “pamper” my face with in order to freshen up each morning. I figured that I needed to take care of that before Selah comes! Haha.
After a simple dinner at the Santa Monica Place food court we made our way to Urth Caffe. Although my mind kept telling me to stop indulging in rich foods like a normal person would, I knew that I had to give in to my craving! I got the Torta della Nona, which is a pie type of dessert filled with pine nuts, some cooked custard type of filling, and peach jam. Oh man, was this perfect! This was one amazing little dessert and it totally hit the spot. I highly recommend it for those of you who are fans of flaky buttery pie crust.
Emily and Jenn ordered cheesecake and this simple yet amazingly refreshing Pot of Urth green tea! It was oh so good, and we all ended up sharing our desserts.
Another thing that I’m hoping to be able to do before Selah gets here is have one more date night with Greg. We shall see if or when that happens, but we need to take care of first things first—booby class tonight at 6:30 pm. Okay that didn’t sound right…more like, breastfeeding basics class, haha.
Have an amazing rest of the day and be a blessing to others, because we never know whose life we can save with a simple smile.
What facial products or makeup would I always find in your collection?
What’s the best dessert you’ve had lately?
Do you think you would have “last wishes” before the birth or your child?
