小朋友最近很愛Pinkalicious系列書, 還有PurpliciousGoldilicious. 這星期每天都要帶其中一本去學校. 今天帶的是Purplicious, 正巧我也是穿紫色, 姑且配紫色平底鞋.

小朋友自己搭配…紫花洋裝配彩虹褲. 換作大人肯定令人眼花, 好玩的是小孩穿就感覺很ok.

小朋友面對鏡頭很自在, 我很僵硬

平常幫她照相都扭扭捏捏, 換把拔要幫媽咪照相, 就跑進來一整個很嗨

好啦, 老媽子也來變個姿勢 (偷偷把襪子脫了…穿襪子配平底鞋很有阿媽的感覺阿~)

媽咪還是很僵硬

媽咪, 換一邊站也沒有特別好好咩.

到學校發現, 老師今天穿紫色洋裝, 好幾位同學也穿紫色… 中午和前同事吃飯, 她也穿紫色呢! 看來今天大家都感覺很紫色. 😉

I like getting old

Sorry for being a snob here. but I really think as I am getting order, I feel more comfortable.

Maybe I am ignorant, maybe I will feel like crap after menopause. At least I feel great now.
I never have problem disclosing my age as I think it is a fact that I cannot escape. I don’t like saying “I am getting old" as I don’t think 33 is old (or any age. I don’t think any age is considered old). But if you wanna say it, hey, I honor that. Yes, I am getting old…..and I love it!

It occurred to me recently that I am no longer insecure about being myself. Just last week, my coworkers wanted to take me out for my birthday lunch. If it was couple years ago, I would think of something safe and they already like, maybe Cheese Cake Factory or Ruby’s.  Instead, I suggested the newly open Korean restaurant I being wanted to go. It turned out my coworkers all loved it. While I appreciate them being open to new things, I am also proud of myself not afraid of asking what I really want. Today, I had lunch with my coworker from my previous job. I enjoyed having lunch and chatting, and caught myself making jokes, which I was not used to do.

I think it’s the magic of “getting old."

Yes, I am still afraid of death. Yes, I still drool over the perfect apple light that 20-year girls have. Yes, I still have tummy that I want to get rid of. But I feel comfortable. I would not change a thing for myself.

While people talk about how those Taiwanese middle age bachelors getting married with 20-something girls, I only see that Demi Moore married Ashton Kutcher, or my friend happily married with her husband, who is 25 years younger than her (they are now married for ten years!) That’s right, we got cougars in town.

I don’t want to act young or pretend that I don’t think about aging. I am just getting tired of people criticizing women getting old. Maybe the longer I write proves that I am still insecure. So if you will excuse me, I want to stop here and just say, “I like to getting more mature!"

最高溫華氏77度

小孩今天自己選的衣服. 本來想給她裡面加件短袖, 不過看天氣會熱就算了. 怕在冷氣房著涼的我, 加了西裝外套.

20110428-042823.jpg

上衣是Rue La La買的Tory Burch Japan Relief T-shirt. 我和Wen有同樣的感覺, 若不是因為捐款, 其實這純棉T恤的質感不是很好, 非常薄….希望他們省錢在衣服上是為了能多些盈餘捐給日本地震災民.

Debra說很高興又看到我勤更新了. 其實是因為我最近裝了wordpress的iphone app, 用iphone照相後照片一傳就可以發文, 很方便, 希望能夠持續.

最高溫華氏八十三,

這陣子都是七十度左右的好天氣, 唯獨今天會熱到八十三度. 所以我裡面穿無袖, 外面穿針織衫擋辦公室的冷氣. 小朋友很開心能穿短袖, 也給她帶了件針織衫.

第一次亮相的針織衫. 看了好久, Anthopologie賣到沒貨, 結果上上星期日在人家快打烊前去逛, 看到我的尺寸孤拎拎地在打折架上, 真是命中注定阿~

20110428-032443.jpg

無袖上衣. 也是Anthropologie撈到的打折貨. 網路上並不是很受歡迎 , 卻非常適合我的體型, 幫我擋肚子(Anthro受歡迎的, 要不是原價就被清空, 就是一下折扣第一天就掃光了)

跟著牛牛同事去吃的food truck event OC Din In-A-Go-Go. 謝謝冬冬推薦, 買了Bacon Mania的Bacon Cheese Crisp. 還在Lime Truck買了三明治及檸檬水.

*穿搭檢討* : 過膝長裙不要和平底中筒靴配. 長裙把腿變短, 中筒靴從小腿肚把腿切一半. 我自認小腿是我唯一驕傲的地方, 可是這張照片看起來又短又粗, 真是不簡單.

換個角度看, 我們兩個人都笑得眼睛瞇起來很開心, 這才是最重要的. 😉

33歲的我

這是我第一次在復活節過生日, 也是第一次在南加州過不是晴天的生日. 謝謝Clare辦的撿蛋趴臘趴, 也讓大家幫我唱了生日快樂歌. 中午吃了個蛋糕, 晚上牛牛姐姐幫我慶生又吃了個蛋糕, 好幸福.

為了提供我103歲回頭看現在的自己在做什麼, 特別寫下三十三歲的我, 以此紀錄:

1.因為女兒喜歡粉紅, 桃紅, 和紫色, 所以我也喜歡.

2. 去年開始發現自己最喜歡的動物是大象. 只要有大象的玩具或圖案我都特別有好感.

3. 女兒現在在"公主"階段, 帶她去跳公主童話芭蕾. 第一堂課很害羞可是回來一直講.

4. 能夠寫這篇文章, 是因為小孩吃完晚餐吵著要去公園. 我說我累了. 牛牛帶她出門. 聽老師說她今天在學校睡了將近四小時的午覺, 辛苦牛牛了.  (結果寫到這點就聽到門外有人的聲音, 把拔想必是撐不到走到公園, 科科.)

5. 每天早上和牛牛carpool時, 他開車, 我"念"書兩個人聽. 上本念完的書是Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling. 現在是念Bossypants by Tina Fey

6. 現在和牛牛會一起看的節目: 30 Rocks. 自己一個人看的節目: America’s Next Top Model, Modern Family, Glee (因為有小孩的關係, 不可能坐在電視前看. 感謝網路, 總是可以事後追)

7. 為了彌補帶著小孩沒辦法好好逛街的遺憾, 又仗著"免運費, 不喜歡可以退", 前陣子過了一段又買又退(衣服)的日子.想想真不是很環保. 所以現在努力節製自己.

8. 從高二社團成果展後就沒有碰吉他, 最近因為小孩學校的老師會彈吉他給小朋友聽, 又開始想彈吉他了.

9. 無論是工作還是家庭, 我不能再被動地想被人照顧, 而是要take things in my own hands.

10. “When you meet anyone, treat the event as a holy encounter. It’s through others that we either find or love our self. For you see, nothing is accomplished without others. When you eliminate the concept of separation from your thoughts and your behavior, you begin to feel your connection to everything and everyone." – Dr. Wayne Dyer

11. 小孩現在辦家家酒喜歡剛媽媽, 我是小姊姊(真的不是我教她的), 牛牛是把拔.
