jemz: (Holiday - cupcake!)
oh ho! I am seekritly posting from work now that the ban on lj here has been surprisingly lifted! :D


Hi everyone! *waves* It's been a while since I was on here. Everything is going well and things have been crazy hectic. Well...more hectic than usual!

I'm officially 28 weeks today! Whoooooohoooo! And we're having a lovely baby girl. Hubmeister and I are super excited to meet her and we're just sort of enjoying experiencing this pregnancy together. Although he's a bit tired of constantly rubbing Vitamin E oil on my belly or stopping me from scratching myself raw, he's been taking the time to talk to her and play 80s hi-nrg music. Which she loves and WILL dance to. I've got the internal bruises to show it!

What else have I been up to? Oh, we moved into the Master Bedroom in our house (like, this past weekend!) so I've been spending hours cleaning and packing when I'm not at work or in SF. Pretty excited to start decorating and creating a positive space for us and our baby girl.

I'm also really excited for the holidays. I'm going to put up a post for holiday cards later this week since I'm definitely getting a head start and I found all my holiday cards. I'm trying harder to be better organized at things. So far, so good!


So how are you doing?
jemz: (DBSK - Happy Jae!)
Thank you for all the well wishes! They made me smile gleefully.

Life as a married dame has been uneventful so far. It's still a bit strange to call him my husband or any cute variant of the title (my current favourite is "hubmeister") but we're slowly getting used to it. We do the usual social stuff like birthday parties and family dinners. But I love hanging out with my family and friends.

So far, I've been sleeping a lot lately and just enjoying a slightly slower pace for this cool summer as well as all the delicious summer fruits.

Also, I am now 15 weeks pregnant.

:D How have you been doing this summer?

I've been spending the last few months trying to wrap up all the loose ends for FanimeCon.

If y'all don't know, FanimeCon's MusicFest is having Matsushita Yuya and FLOW. I'm pretty excited for this year's guests.

Things have been super hectic since I'm heading off to Anime Central with a few friends. Gonna catch FLOW performing there as well. I'm excited since I haven't been to Chicago yet. Anyone going to Anime Central want to meet up? I promise I don't bite hard!

Once I get back, a few days later will be FanimeCon. Super excited for this year's convention. I hope all this hard work pays off in lots of smiles and hugs and fantastic times for all the members who come!

Anyways, I should probably start thinking of packing instead of doing more FanimeCon work. My eyes are beginning to cross!


Also, I've started reading manga on Maxi (my iPad2) with a cool app. Any suggestions for manga? I want to download a bunch to read on the plane rides to and from Chicago!

jemz: (schedule)
It's not news that I've been really busy. I've been working on lots of things! But hooray for bullet heart points!

♥ FanimeCon's first musical guest was announced last week! If you haven't checked out Matsushita Yuya's music, check it out! He has some really catchy tunes and nice dance moves!

♥ Work has been really busy. I'm learning lots of coding stuff. Enough to make me dizzy!

♥ FanimeCon has occupied a good chunk of my free time. But I love meeting days in that I get to see everyone and hang out. I like feeling that we're all working to make a great convention and that we care about what we are doing.

♥ Lent! I've decided to give up refined white sugar, meat, and negativity! I think the last one is the hardest but the Lenten season, to me, is about sacrifice and self-improvement! I think there's been a lot of negativity in my life recently and I'm dwelling way too much on it. I'm just going to accept it and push forward with optimisim.

♥ The fiance and I are doing well! Wedding plans are going slow since I'm sort of planning on some major events at a big anime convention.

♥ I've started working out again! Gotta fit into MY wedding dress for MY wedding!!! Heee, I enjoy writing that.

♥ I learned how to make French Macarons. Mmmmm. Sweet and delicious. I need to practice making more.

♥ I want to have pretty nails like [livejournal.com profile] snowqueenofhoth and [livejournal.com profile] mousapelli but....precious time! D: Maybe I can schedule time to do it into my schedule....

♥ Fiance is addicted to Rick Steves' travel shows. He has it on while working. lol.

♥ I got an Android phone! I miss shigedex's (a blackberry curve) buttons. This touchscreen thing is sort of not handy when I am trying to find things without looking at the phone. D: But the apps are shiny.

♥ My hair is getting longer and I really want to cut it super short but I also want to keep it semi-long for the wedding. And I don't really like cutting off my long hair without being able to donate it to Locks of Love. So I'm just making D: faces at it right now. I will probably chop it short after the wedding (WHICH IS HAPPENING NEXT YEAR) but for now tiny trims is all I can satisfy myself with.

♥ *HUGS ALL OF YOU* Stay awesome, flist! <3
jemz: (Heart mouse)
Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!!!

P.S. Will catch up on last week's jweb soooooon!
jemz: (swan love)

Happy Valentine's Day!

May today be the start of a prosperous year for you and your family. May happiness be abundant this year and that love is always present.

Love you all, flist!
