@SkySpaceLA #DTLA

It was the grand opening of the observation deck at #SkySpace #USBankTower in DTLA. I had it in my calendar months ago for the slide and about two weeks prior, I went on the site to get tickets. I wished I had a go pro but I didn’t need one at all. I was upset at the fact that we weren’t able to hold anything (phone) in our hands while sliding down. The cool part about it was that they took a photo of you coming down the slide. Just like at an amusement park! When we had all came down, we went to the kiosk to look at the photos. Of course, mine was the only one that wasn’t showing. They tried to mess with it for over 15 minutes and then I asked to speak to a manager. I nicely said, “I waited in line for over an hour and paid $30 to go down a slide and not be able to get a photo? I’d like to go down again.” He obliged and took me back to the slide, cut in front of the crowd and I got to go on again! This time, my photo came out! I was most appreciative of their accommodation and so happy that we as a family got to experience such an amazing part of our city. The space is beautiful and the views are breathtaking. Even my husband who’s scared of heights enjoyed the visit. I can’t wait to come again and go down the slide over and over again when there is no line!


 






Tyler’s Birthday Gift @SamsungTweets

Saw my friend Catalina and her children on VR and I’ve been contemplating about what to get him. This would be a great buy for him and for me since it’s not that expensive!!

#Bye

Always a bittersweet moment. I love having him around and miss him dearly as soon as I drop him off but then again I look forward to some alone time. But no matter what, Tyler is always on my mind. I am always thinking of him every minute of the day, wondering how he’s doing or what he’s doing and thinking about if he’s thinking of me too… the best part about being apart is when he texts or calls me!

Decisions @YouTube #bvityl #pigletventures

The hardest part about editing a video is the part when I have to pick a cover. Most of the time, there aren’t any still shots I can use. The other times, I can’t decide which shot of me shoving food in my mouth is not too sexual, ugly looking, can’t be edited to put a weewee to cover the food… etc. I don’t want it to be too inappropriate, but I want it to look like I’m actually eating! These were the three options for my last video from New York. The only problem was… I didn’t screen shot it before snapping it. Dumb dumb dumb on my part, had to go back and try to find the images.

#HowtobeaMAN pt. 2

Twice in one week… When you insist on having your wife take your car, please have the tank filled so she doesn’t have to go through the trouble of stopping by a gas station. After the tire incident this made me so furious again, in the am on my way to the office. In the am, I said I was going to take Maximus. He should’ve just let me take the Prius since I just filled up the tank the day before! He was super insistent on me taking Betty White. As soon as I got in the car, I freaking had fire coming out of my ears. Seriously. I hate things like this… and he knows it. I hope I got mad enough at him for him to remember never to do it again.๐Ÿ˜›

Why I get annoyed… #howtobeaMAN pt.1

So, we landed at LAX and when we got in our car, the tire light was on. That evening, we got home around 12:30am and had to go to the office the next day. That week, I needed to take Maximus because I was driving to Calabasas. When I got in my car, I was immediately annoyed. My husband, the “man” of the house should have taken car of this knowing that I was taking the car that week. He had a day or two to check on it. I mean… isn’t this why I got married? So I don’t have to do these things myself? Especially if he’s the last one that drove it?

#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)

LAX -> JFK

I must say, I was the fattest I’ve been in New York on this last trip. My fat ass still ate like a pig and enjoyed my mini vacation. It’s crazy how often I’ve been going to NY and I’m always thinking about when I’m going to go back. I will say though, it is different with JL having a place of her own and now living with her bf.

I forgot how warm and disgusting NY gets in the summer. I’ve been so many times in the fall and winter that I didn’t expect the weather to be THAT unbearable. I plan to skip NY for the rest of the season and look forward to going back in the fall. However when I was editing my NY video, I realized how much fun I have with my gf JL and how much I already missed her. Being able to relive the moment through my videos are priceless and I’m so glad I picked up on this hobby even though I annoy most people with my camera in their face.

#KansasFun

We went to some fun in the woods thing for a musical event and we ended up just playing in the kids area. You all know I can’t resist a slide, so when I saw one, I had to slide down. Yes, even in my dress. Also, you can see that my son and I can’t take a nice picture.

New Car Mount @iOttie

I had a great one I got for free through this Amazon deal, but the stickiness on the suction was not as effective so I decided to purchase one so I can continue my facetime activity on my way home from the office.

#doingJim @Equinox

I’ve really started to get in the hang of things, well the getting up and driving to the gym at 5am part. Not the stamina part. I am exhausted on the stairmaster in the ams and it may be the fact that I am so tired. I need to start going to bed earlier.

Right now, I go to bed anywhere around 10:45pm-11:15pm. It’s too late. So technically, I’m getting about 5-5.5 hours of sleep. This is when I start to think that I wish we never got rid of that twin bed for Tyler. I would totally sleep in another room or have Bear sleep elsewhere. He deters me from living my fitness filled life. Though he agrees to turn the tv off in the evenings, he always has to have a sour face about it and then be on his phone, and that screen in a pitch dark room is annoying. He has and never will wake up with me in the ams, which I find annoying too. I get it. He’s not that type of person but only because he has class in the evenings until 9:40pm? Well, to me that lazy and I hope that changes once he’s done. There are a lot of things I’m waiting to see in him once he graduates… and trust me, he knows.

So until then, I will wake up alone in the dark always, and do my own thing, he needs to catch up.

Anniversary Dinnerย #1Year #SSAMkbbq @ilovekoreatown

Dinner was amazing. I discovered this new (new for me) kbbq item and I fell in love. Now if all the places carried it, I would totally eat kbbq all the time. AND I hear it’s good for women. Watch the video and find out!

#100thDay #KoreanCulture

Koreans love celebrating the life of a baby. Apparently because back in the day, parents were lucky to have a child live past 100 days. Hence the 100 day celebration and the HUGE 1st birthday celebration. Well, at least that’s what I was told. If I’m wrong, someone please correct me because that’s what I’ve been telling my white side of the family.๐Ÿ˜›

My eldest cousin had his 3rd son. We celebrated an intimate dinner at the China Gate restaurant. Everyone does their celebration there, unless you’re super fancy and then you do it at Lawry’s or Spago.

I have this theory, the first child always looks like the mom or dad. The second child always looks like the one that the first child doesn’t look like. The third child is a mixture of both, which is always the best looking child. Now think about the people in your life that fit that count…. right?

Anyway… we enjoyed a delicious meal at the birthday. I popped a diet pill because I didn’t want to pig out. Did me right! There was another celebration at the restaurant, a 1st birthday. The parent and toddlers were running around and I noticed this white man with a hapa kid. He was the most adorable kid ever. I can’t wait to see what my child looks like… I don’t know when but I can’t wait!

If you’re single, please go marry someone outside your race, let’s take our existence one step closer to world peace!
