Greenwich, CT

My dear friend Catalina happened to be in the city too. Her friend, now turned my friend Heather lives in Greenwich with her family so we took the Metro North for $10 from Grand Central Terminal with Tyler and stayed with them.

I have never seen a house so beautiful. We went out to dinner in Long Island and met other friends. Had many laughs over drinks and food. 🙂

#WeighIn AM

Yesterday I had stopped by Smorgasborg in DTLA so had a large XLB (soup dumpling) shared with Bear, shrimp daddy garlic shrimp plate with rice and mac salad. For dinner we had leftover Mastro’s from Friday night. Leftover steak, salad and baked potato.

We were supposed to go to the gym in the afternoon but we did not make it.

Bel Air, MD

I had decided to visit an old family friend in MD while I was in the city. We arrived to NY on Friday am after a red eye and we left for MD on the Amtrak on Monday at 4am out of Penn Station. I ended up falling asleep and missed my exit. Luckily the next exit was still close to my friend’s house so we had a wait a bit while she arrived.

Julia Gulia has been in my life before I actually met her. My mom and her mom were high school friends from Korea and when I was in 7th grade and when Julia was in 8th grade, we met in person. Since then we’ve been inseparable. We had a nine year hiatus while in our mid-20s to now but we picked up right where we left off.

We got into MD around 8am and left on Wednesday at 8pm. we had a great full three days in Bel Air and it was not enough.

We catched up, watched tv, played with the children, ate and repeated for three days. Tyler stayed home with us on the first day but on the 2nd and 3rd day, he went to the TKD studio with Julia’s husband. He had summer camp going on at his business so it worked out well! Tyler met new friends and was able to be active all day instead of being on his iPad playing Fortnite.

I was so sad to leave but exctied about our future meeting. Because as teens we saw each other every year (visiting one another from LA to VA) or sometimes twice a summer, we wanted to keep the tradition for our children. 🙂

Weigh In AM

So yesterday, I had half a sandwich from Tous Les Jours (Korean bakery) for breakfast. It was egg, bacon, lettuce and tomato on white bread. Bear and I had lunch in Buena Park after we dropped off the car for service. We had bossam with soy bean paste soup with rice and sides. I had a taro milk tea from 7 Leaves and a five pieces of hot Cheetos. When I got home, I had a 4-piece nutter butter cookie pack, a bite of snickers and soba noodles with dipping sauce for dinner.

I went to my cycling in the am… so I assume I would’ve been more!

I’m 109 today, which isn’t bad but a jump from 107.

NYC #violetinthecity

A week after I got back from London, Tyler and I joined Bear in NYC. It was our first trip together to the city. Tyler had already been there with his other family a few times and with school. Bear had to go to NY the day after we got back from London for training and we joined him on his 3rd week there.

Too bad the weather was shitty because it rained most of the time.

Weigh In AM

I ate a sweet potato for breakfast, my chicken pita with veggies and Mastro’s for dinner. At Mastro’s Bear and I shared a bone-in ribeye, twice baked potato with extra sour cream and chives, dirty ketel one martini with blue cheese olives, espresso martini, beefsteak tomato and onion salad, butter cake with whipped cream.

No gym again. Surprised I was 107 again!

#BVITYLONDON

I have never been to the UK. One thing on my bucket list was to go to Monaco for the Grand Prix but scheduling and $$$ was a factor. As a substitue, we ended up getting tickets to the Grand Prix in Silverstone, UK. We used the Fourth of July holiday to take the vacation while I was working and Bear was transitioning from his old job to his new one.

We stayed in Shepard’s Bush and went to Paris for a day. It was an exciting time since the UK had made it to the top something for World Cup. We got to experience London and Paris during the last final games of the World Cup. The energy was UNREAL.

The best part of the trip was the F1 race of course. My future ex-husband Lewis Hamilton did not win the race in his home country but he made it to 2nd on the podium after a bump right after takeoff.

I can’t wait to go to all the F1 races in the future!!!

As for London, I’m okay with never coming back. It was just another version of New York with mediocre food.
