On the Red Carpet

I have very exciting news at the end of the post I.AM.SO.EXCITED!! My gym session this morning included 2 miles of warm-up on the treadmill. Afterwards, I completed 45 minutes of upper body strength training. I felt the burn today, so good. Pancake Sunday was on today. I made my sweet potato protein pancakes. I […]

If Disney had a CSA

Thank you everyone for all your sweet comments on the engagement pictures sneak peek. I received a few emails with funny comments from friends. Funny comments such as “Oh go get your own barn”, “The pictures are channeling  Bella and Edward in the woods” and “Keep the boots on, if you know what I mean”. […]

Engagement Pictures: A sneak peek

Exactly two weeks ago, the fiance and I had a fun time frolicking in the wild to take our engagement pictures. You can see the behind-the-scenes look of that day here. We were in our natural surrounding as we both like nature and often go on hikes together on the weekend.   Today, I was […]

Mac Daddy pancake hunger

I make it a habit to drink a big cup of water before bed. But the last few nights, I have been waking up in the middle of the night because I had to use the bathroom and usually it is hard to go back to asleep. I try to read a book  or listen to instrumental music on my […]

Lemon Date Oatmeal Bar

When I first started the blog, I knew very little about designing a blog. I didn’t spend a lot of time fretting about the design because I just wanted to get started. I just wanted a medium where I can talk about the fun stuff that happens in life, a place where I can post […]

Oolong

Last night I drove 80 miles south to have dinner with my college friends and to celebrate my friend Gloria’s birthday. Everyone is scattered and living all over Southern California, so the good half way point for everyone was the PF Chang’s restaurant in Carlsbad. (I was just there shopping last week). The drive wasn’t […]

Mango Coconut Tropical Shake

Last night, Chris and I went to his work event at the aquarium. It was windy and raining the whole night so we were wearing our rainy day clothes. We were served catered Italian food for dinner and we dined next to the fishes. Attending events at the aquarium is fun because we get to […]

Black Cherry Cho

I woke up this morning and didn’t really feel like going to the gym. Probably because it was cold outside and the covers where holding me back from getting up. Whenever I have days like these, I do some tricks to get myself motivated to workout. I put the workout clothes in the dryer to […]

Magical Coconut Cookie Bars

On Monday night, the fiance and I planned a simple dinner for Valentine’s Day since we celebrated ahead during our fun weekend in San Diego for Valentine’s weekend. We had a simple salad, whole roasted chicken and dessert on the menu. We both worked on Monday, came home late and started eating around 8pm. I […]

Road Trip V-day celebration

This morning, the fiance and I left town for an overnight weekend getaway to celebrate Valentine’s Day weekend 🙂 This was the view I enjoyed while the fiance drove us to our destination. The coastal beaches were busy. We drove for an hour and half and just arrived here. Beautiful sunshine and warm breeze greeted […]
