Ok, so remember back in June, when I tweeted, commented, insta-gramed, and harassed the ish out of everyone to go and vote for me for Project Style? And then I lost by 20 votes? Well, it was all worth it in the end cause I made it to the next round after all due to YOUR votes. I was selected as the wild card winner as a result of having the 2nd highest total votes in the competition. So on Thursday I will be participating in the live style off at the mall where I will be given $200 dollars and 1 hour to shop and put an outfit together. Whoever wins the challenge gets a $1,000 dollar gift card to the mall and will have a chance to win a trip for 2 to New York fashion week. OMG I would die. Send me good vibes. I'm going to be so nervous! And I still can't move too fast, you know cause I gave birth just 2 weeks ago.
In other news....
I turned 28 on Friday. I didn't say a peep about my birthday on any social networks. It's been interesting to see since I havent had Fakebook for over 2 years now, who remembers your b-day. I'm not one of those people that gets hurt if a friend forgets my birthday. There are 364 more days in the year and a lot of other dates to remember, so I understand. I ended up having 3 cakes. My nina (godmother) brought me a tres leches cake, then my friend Maricela brought me a Coldstone ice cream cake! My family came over for a BBQ on Sunday so I made another ice cream cake so I wasn't just serving half eaten cakes. Everyone got to hold our baby, she stayed asleep all day being carried in everyone's arms. My sister said it was a "sip and see" I guess from Real Housewives, if you watch that, you know what it is. I wanted a champagne toast like Beyonce had in her hospital room after baby blue was born but everyone refused that idea. So, I got it for my b-day! yayyy.
Told you she slept most of the day.
My mom making one of her crazy toasts.
With my 3 cakes. The one in the middle I made. To make your own ice cream cake, buy a box of cake, bake it in 2 round pans. Thaw your ice cream. Lay down one layer of cake, spread ice cream, put the next layer on top, and frost. Put in freezer until time to serve and eat. Easy as cake.
I'm so full of words today, aren't I? Ok one last thing. Thanks to everyone who congratulated us on the birth of our bebe. And a special thanks for you guys for saying I still look nice after giving birth. I had obviously cleaned myself up the day we took that photo. Here is a more accurate representation of how I looked in the hospital/look now on a daily basis.
My new daily look, minus the wheelchair.
I hope I made someone out there LOL,
