My first outing since giving birth 3 weeks ago was this Saturday...my sister's wedding engagement party to which I am the maid of honour. Looking at these pictures made me realize a few things:

1. My baby belly is somewhat already gone. Yeah to me! (Hopefully 3 more weeks before I can hit the gym again.)
2. I wish I can have my hair & make-up professionally done every day.
3. My husband is friggin hot!
4. I need a tan badly...I look as white as mozzarella.

My sister's hairdo.

My sister happy at how her make-up is turning out.

Despite the loud music at the reception hall, Liam slept like...well, like a baby!

My sister and her fiance.

The hairdresser did such a great job with my hairdo. And what better way to accessorize a loose low side bun than with long dangly earrings that graze your shoulders.

I was worried that I wasn't going to fit into a nice evening gown for the party. Luckily 12 days of barely eating yucky hospital food helped me shed my baby weight and I was able to pull off this stunning empire waist pleated maxi dress.

I love my sexy hubby :)

Dress: BCBG
Earrings: Aldo

Aliya said...

Let me first congratulate your sister for her engagement, and by the way she looks beautiful!!!

I am so happy to see you again, and wowwww you look just beautiful!!!
I can't believe you just have a baby!!
During your pregnancy I asked you what was your secret to look so fresh and shape, and now I would love to look like you after giving birth to the baby!
Is it just your stay at the hospital and their food who helped you to loose almost everything? Did you change a bit your diet comming back home???

Well take care!


See, Bethenny Frankel wasn't lying! If you don't gain a lot of weight during pregnancy, you'll be back in shape in no time after-wards! You look FANTASTIC!! Baby Liam looks adorable in his plaid as well:)

@ Aliya: I'm pretty sure the hospital food for 12 days helped me loose my weight faster a little bit but I must say what really helped was the fact that I trained at the gym and ate extremely healthy throughout the pregnancy. My diet at home so far has not changed from before or during my pregnancy. I have always been a healthy eater :)
