Our holiday get together was a successful one. We ate, exchanged gifts and drank. Too bad I had to wake up at the crack of dawn to catch a flight to Kansas and I hadn’t even packed yet.
On NYE we drove to Scottsdale, Arizona for an engagement/NYE party. Bear’s college friend is having a small destination wedding so they decided to combine the celebration of the New Year and their commitment to each other.
We woke up early and headed east, but on the way we stopped by the outlets!
I blew my entire $500 gift from grandpa in an hour. I could’ve spent more but Bear put me on a budget. 😦
I found a few amazing pieces that I cannot wait to wear! Yippeeee!
It rained most of the day and all night and into the next day in Arizona.
It was super cold and not amusing.
I wore the same dress from my holiday party… I purchased it with the intention of wearing it for NYE and possibly my 35th birthday.
We had a great time, though the hotel we stayed at was sketchy. I was able to get a really nice photo in my raincoat. 😛
JC’s birthday is NYE. She always has a party before the party and most of the time, I’m not able to make it. I’m so glad I was in town this time around!
The Morrison in Los Feliz… next to the Los Feliz Costco. Their burgers were yummy.
JC is my friend from middle school all the way through hs. We tried out for the 8th grade cheer squad in 1995 and both made it.
I have fond memories of our childhood and enjoy hanging out with her on these special occasions.
We spent almost a week in Kansas to celebrate Christmas. I didn’t eat as much as I usually do because I was really focused on NOT EATING.
That’s the thing about vacations, I tend to let loose and regret it after. I need to really discipline myself and not over indulge.
My time in Kansas is relaxing. This is what my day consists of:
Wake up and eat breakfast. Take a nap and eat lunch. Take another nap and eat dinner.
Then I go to bed.
My husband is a homebody so he enjoys doing nothing. Which makes sense because he’s home and I’m sure all he wants to do is sit on the couch like he used to before he moved to LA and veg out. I get cabin fever. I hate doing nothing and being awake…I will eat everything. That is why I resorted to taking a nap.
The last day was most enjoyable since we went shooting. My favorite hobby. Only if we had better ranges in LA… need to make friends with people who have membership to outdoor ranges.
My nail broke at the airport and I realized it on the plane. Luckily, there are several Marie Nail locations in NY so I was in luck!
I immediately booked an appointment as soon as they opened at noon after my red eye flight. We had a very enjoyable weekend… plenty of eating and drinking, we even danced a bit too!
I was able to do a couple of videos while I was out there… instead of my usual trip recap, I found a few locations to shoot at. First being Burger Inc NYC and Catch.
I picked Burger Inc NYC prior to my trip because of the instagram worthy foods… to my luck, an old friend was co-owner of the establishment…
Food was delicious, here’s the video:
So I finally edited my Diner en Blanc video and though my camera crapped out on me right when the event started, we still had enough coverage. Thanks to my iPhone!
Hope you enjoy!

I came here for HH one day after a meeting and decided I needed to go back STAT.
Met my friend one early Friday evening at the bar. We ate a lot and probably finished off 3 bottles of the Cloudy Bay 2015 SB.
I’ll be there again for a birthday next week and finally sitting in the dining area.
I look forward to my next trip.
As some of you may know, I am obsessed with public washrooms. This spot had a very clean and private one… I liked it a lot. 😉

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.
I don’t have many occasions to dress up so when Diner en Blanc comes around I love to be a part of it. I brought out the same tutu from last year, but had different shoes, top and jacket. I got some new items in the past year that went better with the look so I of course had to upgrade!
I got compliments from EVERYONE of course on my coat. They were too distracted from my coat that they didn’t compliment my shoes, but I know everyone was admiring my style. 😛

I get obsessive over songs. I hear something I like on Siriusly Sinatra, I buy and I play it over and over again.
This evening I heard this rendition of “The Shadow of Your Smile” and it literally made me cry. Tears down my face, no sobbing though, genuinely touched by the melody and voice of this man.
The song is gorgeous and I wish to fall in love all over again with this song playing in the background.
I had the pleasure of assisting my oppa again for this event at Irwindale for Nexen Tire.
