Eye to Eye #BoAnDang #Optometry

I need glasses when I drive. The LASIK treatment I got in 2002 is still going strong however the evenings are a bit difficult for me. Especially with the rain in LA these days…

Bear decided to get vision insurance again so we went in for an eye exam. I got new driving glasses which is SUPER cute. I think I look like Chicken Little!

We always go to Bo An Dang, ask for Benjamin. 🙂

#TylerDay #Football

Tyler’s 2nd to last football game and I had to go since I barely saw him in October. My son is so athletic and quick. He may be small but he is aggressive and loves sports. He dreams to be a pro football player one day and though I may not wish that upon my child, I guess I will support him. My worry will be that he will get hurt and be out of commission for the rest of his life! We’ll see if he likes it in high school. Being small, he may not like getting shoved around when flags aren’t involved.

 

#TylerDay #DTLA

Tyler and I had a really great weekend together. I enjoy picking him up on Fridays even though I have to sit in traffic for 2-3 hours from BH to South OC. But that extra night I get to have him under the same roof means a lot. He’s growing so fast and any time spent away from each other is detrimental to our relationship. It’s crazy because one week we’ll get along great and he’ll go home happy. The next weekend, I will yell and be upset and he won’t go home happy, neither will I. But I understand. There are times I can’t always be the #partimemom and do whatever he wants. I still need to put my foot down and do my part as if I was a #fulltimemom. I can’t let him slide on things because I will not allow him to get away with things because I see him on the weekends.

It’s difficult. I will say the most difficult part is the fact that I can implement mannerisms and behaviors that I think he should learn and carry as he gets older because I don’t see him that often. I don’t get to use the good that I’ve learned growing up to make sure that he has the same upbringing. And as much as it’s unfair, it’s also fair. I realized that no matter how the situation would be, there will never be a fair way to raise a child with divorced parents. One person will always feel like they get the short end of the stick. And i think I’ve come to just accept that fact. Once it’ll be me, another time it’ll be my first husband. (But I feel like it’s me most of the time! :P)

@xrdsgunshows #OrangeCounty

I’m the kind of girl that can find something to buy anywhere. I never leave a place empty handed!

A friend informed us about the show and we had to join. Although there weren’t as many cool toys as I wanted to see. I ended up walking away with a shirt and a really awesome knife. Def. not legal, but it’ll keep me safe when a creep tries to attack me. 😛

#DoingJim @Equinox #HuntingtonBeach

Do you know what’s better than having an Equinox membership? Being able to go to a new Equinox with an ocean view! I was so impressed by the Huntington Beach club. We came in on a Saturday (thank God since it was empty) and enjoyed our workout with the view of the sandy beach. I never imagined myself to live in Huntington Beach until I got to Equinox. Anything new is great but the way Equinox does it… it’s stupendous. Their brand standards are one to go by. I am super impressed by their ability to grow and keep up with the trend and lifestyle. It’s too bad my husband doesn’t work there anymore, but at the same time it’s not like I got any perks. 😛

@Royals vs. @Angles

Kansas City Royals played the Anaheim Angels and Bear bought us great tickets to the game. Unfortunately I was on my cleanse so I had fruit (and alcohol). Vlog coming soon!

#Brabus Visit

I was dropping something off and picking something up so I stopped by Brabus on my day off. 🙂

My friend had brought me back some panda goodies from Taiwan and finally I was able to make it down to pick it up. (Maybe I’ll do a reveal video of all my panda stuff!)


  

Can Never Have Enough #Brodard

We were in Garden Grove to visit Bo An Optometry for Bear. We HAD to stop by Brodard, of course! We got pork & duck and realized that pork is the best. I remembered the duck being better last time, but not anymore.

We were so hungry after the dealers so I ended up eating it on the way to the optometry. And smart me asked for a side of jalapenos. It’s a Viet place, of course they’ll have fresh jalapenos! 😛

Side note: Don’t mind my fat thighs squeezing in my shorts

Mommy’s New Car #BMWX6 @IrvineBMW

First, I’d like to say THANK YOU to Yi-Wen & Paul at Irvine BMW for helping us get into a beautiful car. We took a week to think about it after our first visit and we were all glad to have walked away with the BMW X6 M Sport.

Don’t get me wrong, the only SUV I’ll drive is still the Range Rover (and not the sport) but the X6 comes in a close second. I fell in love with the X6 when it first came out and I’ve had my eye on it and finally we have it in our garage. The Range Rover was a bit too much for us to get right now. I will drive the Range Rover again soon. And doesn’t the X6 look like a Polar Bear???

My mom was in dire need of a new vehicle and since I got a nice promotion at the end of the year, I decided that getting her a new car would be my first duty. My worry for her safety was #1. Then of course, I wanted it too.

I’ve known Yi-Wen since 2001-ish. My ex-husband and I got an employee an M3 under my credit (which the employee got his payment deducted out of his paycheck monthly).

Then I got a 645i, in 2005, with an exer who put me through the wringer (finally out of my hair and not affecting my life anymore).

All said and done, I was waiting to get back to Yi-Wen and get another BMW.

We got the 2016 X6 xDrive 35i with premium and sport packages. Alpine white on black Dakota leather, although I could have gotten Coral red or the Cognac. I wouldn’t have minded the Nappy leather too but oh well. The trim is the Polar Wood Trim, definitely not my favorite, actually the worst of it all, but I didn’t really have an option to be picky. AND it isn’t as bad as it used to be.

All this came into place since I’ve put my finances in order. I know exactly how much I have, what goes out, how much to spend, and what’s saving. I’ve never felt so refreshed in my life. 🙂

I’ve also given him a name already, let me introduce you to Troy. 😀

Saturday FunDay

Decided to lay out by the Newport Equinox pool but weather was gloomy so we opted to #DoJim, eat DTF and hang out with my OC buddy.

A simple relaxing Saturday turned into a crazy night of drinking.

We went to Mesa and a club after and I don’t remember after that.
