My comfort foods + Wedding Diary Update

Ever since Monday, I haven’t been feeling well.

My beverage of choice has been fresh ginger tea with honey. Sometimes I make it really strong and it’s spicy, sometimes a little light and with more honey.

I’ve also been craving comfort food. Chocolate gives me comfort.

I have been adding chocolate shavings on top of my hot oatmeal bowl.

Chocolate + coconut + chocolate + coconut = helps me feel better in the morning.


Oatmeal mixed with chocolate protein powder + coconut butter mixed in.

Toppings are chocolate shavings + shredded coconut + more coconut butter.


I really loved this combo. I used Baker’s baking chocolate, the chocolate is so creamy once it’s melted, without adding any extra sugar.


Another comfort food. Thai coconut soup.


We ordered take-out from a neighborhood Thai restaurant, it was our first time ordering from there and their soup was delicious.

Really flavorful, really creamy and I love that I can taste the ginger in the soup too.


We also had Phad Thai to complete our meal. This dish wasn’t as flavorful as the soup, it could have used more spices as it tasted a little bland.


And when you are not feeling well, you have an excuse to have someone make fresh orange juice for you 🙂

Wedding Diary

We are 3 months away before the wedding. We have  our family and closest friends all traveling and vacationing with us to Puerto Vallarta for our wedding.

38 guests confirmed + Bride & Groom!!!

It feels like the days are getting shorter and my to do list is getting longer. I have enjoyed every step of the way. I have an inspiration board that I made. I put it up in my room and  I look at it all the time. It has helped me a lot in seeing the bigger picture.

Honestly, I am not stressed out. One night I stressed myself out because I was thinking that I am not stressed out enough.

I pay attention to small details, and I want to make sure that during our wedding celebrations, our personality as a couple will be included in the details. From the ceremony readings down to the small details like the monograms that will be printed on the menu.

One detail that I have been working on this week is the bridesmaid dress. My sister is going to be my Maid of Honor.

When we get married in May, it will be 2.5 months after she gives birth, so we are planning to purchase multiple sizes of the same dress because we won’t know what size she will be wearing then.


These are the styles that I liked. I want a dress that looked light and flowy. Our ceremony will be on the beach, so dresses that are cool and breezy will fit our destination.


Our wedding colors are pink and orange. I prefer a pink dress for my bridesmaid but I also liked these orange dresses.


I used Weddington Way website to create a line-up of my favorite dresses. It was really helpful to see the dresses side-by-side and compare them.

What you do is shop for the dresses that you are looking for, either according to style or color. Then you add the dresses that you like to your favorites list.

From there, the website will generate a dress line-up for you from your favorites list.

I’m such a visual person and it helps a lot to see your choices all in one page so you can narrow down your top picks.

Have a good Friday! Stay Healthy!!
