#MUSTDO! Dinner & a Show @FaithandFlower #dtla

I’ve never had Absinthe before. I’m not sure if it was the real thing but it was worth the show!

It came green in a snifter glass. A rocks glass filled with root beer and ice. One shot glass with two black straws.

He swirled the Absinthe in the snifter glass to coat the inner walls.

Lit a match into the glass and let the fire roar!

What happens after is a mystery. All I’m going to say is that it required both my hands, hence the no pictures.

Only thing I’ll tell you is that you use the straw, but not for the root beer.

You MUST try this!

THANK YOU STEPHANE!

#DateNight @FaithandFlower #DTLA

I had to go to my CPA’s office because of an amendment tax file I had to do, so we decided to have dinner out.

We stopped by Beer Belly, but it was closed. They’re having a company dinner, which I’m so behind. Employers should totally treat out their employees.

We were scrambling to figure out where to go driving through #KTOWN when I saw Nancy’s #ig.

#FaithandFlower raw bar.

I checked with #opentable and got a reservation.

To my surprise, I saw my friend Stephane who greeted us and welcomed us to his new place.

The restaurant was exactly to my taste. Aesthetically exquisite in every detail and corner of the space.

I said hello to Nancy and her hubby Sam and sat down for a fun dinner with my Bear.

I wanted the rose from the ‘Fizz’ category but when it arrived it was flat. The server came back with the correct drink in the coup glass.

I was contemplating on either the $19 brut rose or the $9 champagne, I left it up to Bear to decide.

I did say, I could have two glasses with the cheaper one. :P

Bear chose the brut rose for me. ;)

Thank you Stephane for the complimentary dishes and absinthe drink!

I can’t wait to go back… I need to go back!

#EasterSunday

I slept most of the am and afternoon.

Bear wanted to go hit balls and I needed some subjects to shoot.

Only reason I went. He actually pulled over the side of the fwy for me this time

20140420-190209.jpg

Then to the market cause he’s going to make me dinner!

Parked behind us when we got out. Fellow #Italia~

20140420-190714.jpg

Still getting used to bringing bags.

#Veuve was from hubby. We got the #chandon today. I’ll drink the cheapest.

20140420-190930.jpg

Tonight’s recipe.

First I start with this while the champagne chills.

20140420-191231.jpg

I was able to get two subjects today. I still need about seven.

Need 10 for the final but want to have more, just in case.

I tried to get Bear to take a photo of me taking a photo on the side of the freeway but he refused.

He’s ring super cautious, he doesn’t want me to die, hello?

:)

It would have been cool.

So Bear is cooking now and he asks that I not be in his way. So I cleaned the bathroom but as I was bending over, my body chain broke.

I need to lose weight.

Tonight is my last #hoorah. I need to do Jim ASAP everyday.

I’m suppose to start tomorrow.

@KtownNightMarket

We decided to go early today before the rush.

20140419-210006.jpg

Stopped by the Loud Mouse X Timeless Clothing Brand booth to get my #KoreaTown shirt!!

I got a white in size small, make sure you get yours!

20140419-210309.jpg

Bear played some games and won me a stuffed animal. I would’ve had two but the guy at the booth said he didn’t win when he clearly did.

20140419-210410.jpg

And me drinking salsa…

See why … PigletVentures

HAPPY #EASTER!

I got a box of Rainbow of Cottontails Easter Cookies from Dean & Deluca to pass out to friends. I know my friends without families would appreciate my gesture of NOT sending them the whole box.

I watch out for my friends, we are all trying to NOT overdose on extra calories.

Bear on the other hand, he can afford some calories.

Of course, Bear ate the Violet bunny! :) He loved it!

Should’ve tried the hangover drink yesterday.

#MUSTTRY #scolville

My co-worker brought me some spicy chili peppers to try at home. :)

I tried one at work today and I didn’t feel any heat. Apparently they are suppose to be spicier than the serranos.

Maybe I got a non spicy pepper.

Anyone know the name of these?

#QualityTime

Life as an adult gets more difficult since there aren’t enough days in a month to see everyone I love.

I make it a point to always hang out with the important people in my life.

I give the effort that is put in towards me.

With that said, my cousin and her family are a part of my family that I love to see and hang out with.

They’ve invited us to their home for dinner and fun numerous times and we wanted to return the favor by having them over after Bear’s move.

We ordered KC BBQ (Bear’s favorite restaurant). Go to PigletVentures for all the food photos!

Kids played and adults talked, laughed and drank a whittle. :P

We had so much fun and too much food! I couldn’t stop eating and I had ramen after they left!

I woke up… Too many pounds on the scale.

I need to do Jim but I just want to eat all day.

#MustTry #snacking

Tyler loves Takis and he found this at the Korean market.

He wanted to try and secretly I did to.

20140412-134901.jpg

At Ralph’s I found this.

I have a new jar of salsa at home so I didn’t get but I must next time!

I’ve been trying to be good about not buying excessive things after reason my friend’s blog about no waste living.

#WHODOESTHAT?!

I get their point but it’s dumb. With all the crap people feed their kids these days, it’s smart to keep kids on track of their weight and health.

This photo is useless and doesn’t get the point across.

Don’t have your child worry about their physical health? Let them do and eat whatever they want without worrying about their weight?

Ridiculous. Always be conscious of what crap you put into your mouth and your child’s.

It’s not about weight, yes I get it but it is about keeping track of your health.

I have this on my wall…
