Babies & Cats, Grand Prix, Giveaways, more!

This post is about all kinds of stuff!

1.
I saw the documentary "Babies" last night. So cute! And interesting to see how babies around the world live.

My favorite was the baby from rural Mongolia and his cat. The cat was so sweet to him and he was so enamored with the cat.

This just melts my heart...


The cat totally reminded my our our cat Judah. Don't you see the resemblance?


It made me excited for someday when Judah could meet and play with a future child of ours. I hope he'll be a nice "older brother."

2. The Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach was a couple of weeks ago. We had a bunch of people over for a little party and then watched the races from the top of the parking structure by our house. So fun! I didn't take any pictures but my friend Brittney who was with us did. Check out her blog post about it here.

3. The Mr. meet his fundraising goal for his Tour de Cure for Diabetes race! Thank you to those of you (like Kirby from Good Gals) who were kind enough to donate. I love the blogging community! You girls rock!!


4. I donated blood yesterday. It was my fourth time so I'm really not squeamish about it anymore at all. Did you know that I have most rare blood type on earth? I'm AB-. Crazy, right?

5. I'm selling a gorgeous silk shantung strapless dress from ARIA in coral on eBay here.
The dress is this dress:


In this color:

6. My Seattle's Best Coffee and BlogHer giveaway ends on Saturday. You still have a chance to win $100! Go here to enter! It's really easy to enter to win!


7. I have a really busy weekend coming up -- Taste of Long Beach, USC Young Alumnae Scholarship Gala & Casino night, and a Tea Party to watch the Royal Wedding (DVRed)! I will try to take lots of pictures!

My husband and I watched the Babies documentary and loved it!! We were simply fascinated and laughed out loud numerous times. We could have gone for a little less breast feeding but hey--it's natural and I know I will do it when I have a baby. The baby you picked was one of our favorites! The interaction between him and the cat was precious and we also laughed at how the big brother treated him..not always "loving" hehe so I guess big bros are like that all over the world! I'm really enjoying your blog, glad I found ya! If you have time, I'd really like if you checked out my blog:

I want to see the Babies documentary...I tried to get Big Man to watch it but it was a no go.

I loved that little documentary Babies! They all cracked me up - esp the little one with cat!

I have a tea too but not sure if they'll have the Royal wedding on or not. I will have already watched it.
Bridesmaid dress?

I watched Babies on Netflix back in December. It took some pressuring, but J finally sat down and watched it with me. We loved it!! Our favorite part was adding in our own commentary for the babies. The African baby was my favorite!!

I'm going to a tea party to watch the wedding too! So excited :) And I need to watch that Babies movie on Netflix. I always forget I want to :)

That's Judah with 20 extra pounds!!! And not to bust your bubble, but Ace is nowhere near that good with BG :( He's a bad older brother!!! Maybe Judah will be better :)

I still haven't seen Babies. It looked like such a cute documentary, and definitely something I know I'd love
