Christmas Traditions Altered

Since I’ve been married my Christmases have been much different. We do the whole American way… we’ll I think it’s the American way because I’ve never done it thia way before.

My Korean American upbringing during Christmas was much different. My parents would always throw a huge party at our house and while the adults karaoke’d all night, the kids were off playing. We didn’t really exchange Christmas gifts. My parents bought gifts, wrapped it and put it under the tree for church people, friends, service people, and others. As for me (I am the only child), my mom would ask what I want and we’d go to the mall or wherever the item was being sold. This was basically my entire life. Being the only child, I never appreciated Christmas because I got what I wanted most of the time. Of course times have changed and I look forward to getting gifts during Christmas, especially since Bear has a huge family.

Lucky me, I got in early where one (or two) Christmas(es) I got a gift from each of the sibling and parent. It was a lot. Now we do Secret Santa, limit of $100 and we exchange it Christmas morning.

The only thing I hate about this new tradition is that I HATE opening gifts in front of people. Whether it be birthday, random, valentine, anniversary, Christmas… I hate it. I don’t like it when people watch me open it because they are going to see my reaction. What if I have the look of dissatisfaction? I’d be mortified! Being an only child, you’d think I’d like the attention on me but I kind of get a little weirded out.

Tomorrow morning we’re woken up and we all come down the stairs while the dad takes photos. I get shy but all of it’s really cute because it reminds me of how I look at Tyler, still a little child. Obvi, he is more than we are but parents will always be parents and we’re still children.

I hope all of you have an extraordinary holiday with loved ones!

Tyler is not with us this year again but he will be next year!

LAX -> KCI

I had to change my flight to fly out on Friday instead of Thursday to Kansas since I had been out of the office for a week in Paris.

Bear’s brother got married over the weekend in Missour/Kansas. The ceremony was held in a beautiful Catholic church and the reception was at the Kansas City Country Club near the Country Club Plaza.

It was an amazing weekend with the in-laws and especially with my husband.

He had been gone all summer and things got a little rough but I think we’re finding our way back. Cheers to Q4 and the near end of 2017!

How To Eat A Drumstick @GusFriedChicken

My vlog went live last week and while I was editing the video, I realized how much I craved Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken.

We visited the location while we were in Kansas in December. We were there for a wedding and I really wanted to do a feature on a non-LA establishment. However, during our meal, the waitress informed us that Gus’s opened an LA location.

Now I’ll have to go visit!

Night Out @Porsche

I never liked the #Porsche Cayenne but whenever we’re in Kansas and we get to drive around in Bear’s mom’s automobile, I love it.

It has the light interior with a white exterior. Drives well and very roomy.

Would I ever get one for myself? Probably not, I still prefer the Range Rover as my #1 SUV.

My husband turn 30 few weekends ago. I asked him what he wanted to do and he said, “I want to go to Kansas.”

Okay.

So here we were! With his family and friends and enjoying his birthday as if we lived here!

It was relaxing and nice. My gf JL and her bf JH came from NY to celebrate it with us.

Happy 30th Bear!

Obsessed @BaldwinDenim @StandardStyleKC

The reason I love to visit my husband’s family in Leawood is because of Baldwin and Standard Style.

My plaid coat I had last year is from Baldwin and now they have this amazing piece for winter! I’m dying for this right meow. I’ll have to convince my husband to get it for me!
