Mother’s Day

Hello Friends!

I was out of town this past weekend for a friend’s wedding (Hi Carlo!) and thus scheduled our Mother’s Day celebration with my brother for the weekend before it. He and I met for sushi dinner a few weeks back and hashed out all the plans. We started out day off at home by making a great potato cheesy dish, and relaxing with the dog for a little bit of a lazy morning.

Then we drove down to Los Gatos for tea and pastries. It was a wonderfully warm and sunny day so we walked around Los Gatos a little bit before heading back to the house. We snoozed on the couch before preparing a yummy asian inspired dinner of potstickers, pork sticky buns, veggie egg rolls. We left then for a 7pm showing of Beauty and the Beast, which was adorable. I think Emma Watson can do no wrong, and she was splendid in it. I didn’t end up taking many pictures this day, as I was trying to be present with my family. 🙂

Have you seen Beauty and the Beast? What did you think of it? What did you do for mother’s day?



Life Lately

Hello Friends!

The end of the school year is closing just like any other- with a flurry of activity and events! I’m so looking forward to summer, some fun trips planned, lots of sleep and working out hopefully! I’d love to get back on track with regularly working out, grading has taken a bit of a priority lately as I only have a few days left with my seniors.

So here is a quick view into what has been going on in the last few weeks.

I had our apartment handyman put up some shoe shelves for me, and my Type-A heart is so happy. I can see them all so I know what I haven’t work recently, and it’s wicked easy to put them back as I can quickly spot an open space on the shelf.

I went with O to the farmers market a week or two back and these strawberries were out of this world good and so bright in color.

I chaperoned a field-trip to Chinatown in San Francisco and we got dim sum and fortune cookies. So tasty!

My family has finally figured out how to make the best chilaquiles ever! Yum.

I just got back from a whirlwind weekend in Seattle for an amazing wedding to two cuties, so that post will be coming soon. How is your week going?




On My Radar



Hello Friends,

This week we finally got a glimpse of summer. It has been pretty hot during the middle of the day, but cold and grey in the mornings. It’s all about layers people!

Here are a few things that I’ve found recently.

One: Beauty Lessons from a Ballet Dancer:

As a former ballerina, I really enjoyed this clip. She moves so gracefully and clearly loves what she does.

Two: Robot Love

This little girl finds a broken water heater at the curb and thinks it’s a robot. She is so pretty adorable.

Three: My Darling

This song has been on repeat on my playlist at school. So so good. I saw her live this fall and she is an amazing artist.


Have any fun weekend plans anyone? I’m headed off to a wedding for a old college friend, and I can’t wait to see him and catch up!

Let me know what you are doing this weekend in the comments below!
