Is it too late for a weekend recap of last weekend? But I had to share. Better late than never!

I must say it is totally awesome being near my besties. Living in SD, nobody could just “stop by” or come over to hang out at my place. We wasted no time, and they came over on Friday (moved here on Thursday) for another good time full of laughs…and food! On Saturday, my BFF treated me to lunch at one of her faves, Ojiya, a sushi bar by my place. I haven’t been back, but trust me, I have been thinking about it for the past week. Must go back ASAP! And the photos are only half the serving of what we had! My BFF loves me so. Sunday was spent with my hubby who got back from his bro’s bachelor party trip, and what better way to start than with S-1 at Thai Original BBQ?! It’s only 3 minutes away! Seriously?? Coming from Solana Beach where we were close to NOTHING, it is amazing being around so many yummy establishments, as well as everything else we need. You name it, we got it within 2-5 minutes. No joke. I love this city!

Happy Friday and hope you have a yummy weekend!

{the end}

I drove three and a half hours in traffic and rain on Friday to meet my girls in Ktown for a GNO. We ended up going to round 5, but my phone pictures stop at round 2. That’s the sign of a good night.

If you haven’t been to KangHoDong in LA, it is an absolute MUST! The meat is so buttery and of high quality. No wonder we had to wait an hour and a half, but it was totally worth the wait and hype. I can’t wait to go back! Whenever that may be…

On Saturday, I took care of some errands and picked up some El Taurino and wang mandoo (literal translation: “king dumplings”) at HK MarketĀ for my hubby. What a nice wife I am. Driving around LA on Saturday, I remembered why I don’t miss living in Ktown: traffic. But I sure do miss the LA grub!

Home sweet home. On Sunday, I uttered the words, “I want bratwurst.” The next thing I know, my hubby was at the market getting brats and wine and cooking away. I asked what I should do, and his response was “Nothing, just relax.” What a nice husband he is.

Hope your weekend was as fun and fat as mine! Happy Monday!

Muffins on a Friday Night

I spent Friday night at my BFF’s, because I had an interview Saturday morning at a school not too far from her house. Yes, Saturday…at 7:30 AM! Anyways, after dinner at a yakitori place, we went back home, and she wanted to make muffins at 9:00 PM. Her husband commented at how times have changed and what we’ve become…two wives making muffins on a Friday night. He’s seen us through our college years when we were, shall we say, free-spirited. Yes, we’ve come a long way, but I think we’re still young at heart.
