On Monday night, we were starving on our first night in Vegas. I knew lil one likes pizza so decided on this Mario Batali restaurant at the Venetian.
The menu was extensive and made it hard to decide. I decided on the grilled pork chop with apples and escarole for me and margherita pizza for little one.
My Pork chop was perfection. The apple reduction made it slightly sweet and I liked that I could eat greens for the baby. It was a bummer my Lil one didn't like her pizza but feasted on bread and olive oil plus gelato. We are still not over our cold yet.
This place is definitely go to spot. You can sit "outside" too to hear the performers at St. Mark's Square too.
I saw this Kiehl's lookalike brand called C. Booth at Ulta the other day and decided it was worth a try. It has sesame and sunflower oil so good for my dry skin. It lather wells though I wish the scent wasn't so overwhelming. (Note to self: don't shop while you have a cold.)
I've already tried the Argan oil, leave in conditioner, and jasmine hair serum. Thought I would try this macadamia healing infused comb after seeing it at Ulta. I've used it a few days and seems to be making my hair soft and manageable.
My hubby made corned beef and cabbage last week for St. Patrick's day. The next day, he made these yummy Rueben sandwiches. I've never had one before and loved it. I probably ate almost two sandwiches. Good thing I'm preggers!
To make your very own: 1) Toast rye bread with provolone cheese. 2) Slice some roast beef. (We used corned beef from night before.) 3) Grab sauerkraut and heat it up on the stove in a pot. 4) Don't forget Thousand Island dressing! 5) Once you have all ingredients ready, create your sandwich by putting Thousand Island on the bread (mustard is optional) and place beef on bread and sauerkraut on top. 6) Voila! Enjoy this yummy goodness immediately.
Did you hear Spa Week is back? It's this April 16 to 22. Save the dates. You can get $50 treatments at spas. I've tried going for a massage during spa week but it gets booked quickly. Maybe I can find a prenatal one. Hmmm...
I asked my girlfriend for advice on any recommendations for iPad apps. Here's her lil' list that keeps her almost 3 year old occupied and happy.

I was inspired by this month's Allure where they have stylish women show how they wear peplum and name their favorite things. Here are some of my current favorite things:
Shoes: Black Tahari flats or Toms
Bag: H&M light pink crossover bag
Jeans: Motherhood skinny blue jeans Hairstylist: Salon Thairapy in Huntington Beach
Face cream: Vichy Aqualia UV or Body Shop Vitamin E cream with Kiehl's sunscreen
Lip color: Fresh lip balm in Rose
Nail polish: N/A Mascara: Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Excess in black
Perlier white almond hand cream. (Hmm, just noticed my second post on hand lotion this week.)
I started using this in high school and get it at TJ Maxx. It's under $10 so is a steal. The almond scent is heavenly. It feels a little greasy at first but seeps into your skin. Whenever I put it on, I know I'm in good hands. (Sorry, couldn't help the pun.)
I can't live without my iPhone. (Just ask my hubby. Haha!)
I got this neat app for my little one and it seems to keep her and me entertained when she wants to draw. Simple Draw is like Paint on your computer but you use your finger. You have a choice of black, blue, yellow, green and red colors though she always asks me for purple. Sorry, babe, maybe in the next update. It's a free app so double score!
Check it out next time you're browsing the app store.
It's a cold windy day in So Cal. What to wear to church? Hmmm...here's what I decided on.
I'm wearing a Gap Maternity sweater, Gap Maternity tee, Motherhood skinny jeans, and White Mountain Tall Tale boots.
It's a rainy day in So Cal and St. Patrick's Day. So much for wearing my new Jason Wu dress for a baby shower I'm hosting.
I'm wearing a green-ish Frenchi dress and White Mountain Tall Tale boots. My jewelry is inspired by Birchbox's call for Neon. The blue bracelet is from an artist in Spain and orange rosary bracelet is from Canada.
Happy Saturday everyone! Stay dry everyone.
