Fun Friday: Wedding Moments

My favorite people in the entire world~~ I didn’t get to take group pictures with people (so sad) but I was lucky enough to take them with my favorite people at the end of the night next to the Bar (go figure… that’s where they all were).

Weekend Recap and Photodump

This past weekend was…SUPER fun.  I did a LOT of driving in the SoCal area~ and it felt like I went on 2 mini vacations!

Friday Night, I stayed home b/c I had to wake up at the butt crack of dawn to leave for Temecula.  BUT the one awesome treat was that our wedding photos came!!

image

I’m so excited to share these!  I’ll be posting up like 10 different entries to show them all to you.  Out of like 3,000 photos, there are at LEAST 800 I want to share.  HAHA (literally)

https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc1/1017462_10101894722707333_299156852_n.jpg

Saturday

At 645am…bright and early~ I woke up to drive to Temecula.  I had a leader’s retreat with my church and since my car didn’t go friday night (with the rest of the group) we had to be in Temecula before 9am.  sooo earlyyyy *yawn *

image

The mansion we stayed in was GORGEOUS!!  It housed at least 22 of us and well…there was DEFINITELY more room.  We had a game room, pool, ourdoor fireplace, spa, and MUCH more!  (there was an american flag themed bathroom too!)

image

During the afternoon, we had “free time” so some of us went wine tasting

image

image

Night Time fire, cigars, spa…it was AWESOME.

image

So…my air mattress got a hole in it =(  I”ve had it for less than a month and already we had a TIIIIINY hole =(

What do 4 girls do??  We used eyelash glue, 1 stamp, 2 hello kitty bandaids and a panty liner to plug the hole.  GENIUS right???  hahaha we laughed pretty hard but it totally worked!! xoxo

image

Sunday

The next morning, I woke up to people making awesome Egg McMuffins!!  I made a yogurt partfait and well…had the best breakfast in a LONG TIME.

image

Immediately after leaving Temecula at 9am and arriving in West LA by 11am~ Markel and I drove to San Diego for the day.  We went to visit his grandparents in Encinitas for lunch.

Stone Flat Pizza…it was aiite.  Definitely hit the spot, food came out fast, and the service was friendly.  Not 5-stars or anything though.

image

On our drive back to LA ❤  (ROAD TRIP!!  from our summer bucket list)

image

On the way back home, we stopped by Brodard Chateau in West Minster…BEST vietnamese food I’ve ever had.  Hands DOWN.

We caught dates (girls) and walnuts (boys) that our parents threw.  It’s to symbolize how many children we’ll have.  We collected them in the bag below ❤

We’re getting the professional photos shortly!! xoxo

I’ll post those soon ❤

The B I G D A Y <3 (Part II)

Let me just say…that the day that was supposed to be the most magical in my life…was a day full of disasters, drunken stumbles, sober stumbles, broken glass, CRAZY wind…and well… a lot of fun and dancing.  LOL  Who knew that I could feel so many emotions in one day??

The ladies woke up bright at early on Saturday, April 20th.  We had 2 rooms (9 girls) and started getting ourselves together, eating breakfast, and getting the bouquets together.

(**CLUTCH TIP: free breakfast at your hotel.  Our entire bridal party of 18 people ate for free in the morning plus the extra guests that had come to stay.  Since we just had to walk downstairs, it was easy to keep track of everyone and no one had to drive anywhere**)

Here’s the last of the random photos from my point and shoot camera.  The REAL professional photos are coming soon! xoxo

Champs Before the Ceremony!

image

Korean Ceremony: This was SO MUCH FUN.  It was pretty crazy to change out of Wedding Dress #1, into Korean Hanbok, then into Wedding Dress #2 (accessories included), but it was worth all the fun and beautiful pictures!

Destressing with 2 vodka sodas (prob wasn’t the BEST idea…)

Reception Pics: LOVE THESE GIRLS!! xoxo

Random….hahaha but I guess it had to be done?

The Hotel Room: How sweet are my maids of honor and their men?!?!?!?!  SOOOO thoughtful.  There were chocolates, unmentionables and lots of drinks/champs waiting for us ❤

Weekend Recap and Photodump: Father’s Day and UCLA Commencement!

This past weekend was really fun, busy and tiring.  But of course…mostly fun ❤

Friday, I came home from work and had some wine while watching Korean Dramas.

image

Then…we did something SUPER fun…we walked to dinner and then watched Man of Steel!  We so rarely get to hang out alone together that it felt super special…first date special ❤  When we first started dating, we walked to this same theater all the time and grabbed dinner at the random restaurants around it.  Having this kind of an experience again was…amazing.

image

Saturday: UCLA Commencement

image

Free Commencement Food ❤

imageimage

Arm Swag ❤

image

To Beaumont (Near Palm Springs)

image

Friday Night we went to Morongo Casino as a foursome, ate dinner and gambled our free $10 cards at the penny slots.  Safe to say…no one won big that night =(

image

image

Sunday: Father’s Day!  We went bowling and had a delicious BBQ

image

image

image

Coming Home from Beaumont:

image

Markel and I have a storage unit in Beaumont with our childhood items.  Both our parents moved and so we combined our boxes into a storage unit and we were settled.  Now that we are…it’s pretty dreadful to move things into the apartment when you’re already moved in.  *sigh *  In any case, it’s going to take about 3 trips to empty it all out.  Here is our first trip (Barry is back!!):

image

Random Photodump of the week:

delicious dinner at the Paks before watching the season premiere of Pretty Little Liars

image

Strong “shots” of coffee.  I accidentally bought 250 of these from amazon…please don’t ask.  The only “pro” of this is that they are travel size.  I do NOT recommend getting these yourself…they taste AWFUL.

image

Fun end of the year party for work!  (i made the salads + fruit salad)

image

I had such a fun weekend that it’s hard to come back… *sigh *

Well, have a great weekend everyone!

Happy Father’s Day!!

I love my friends

I had so much fun last night.  It seriously felt like I was 24 years old again.  The girls (aka Bs) and I used to hang out 24/7 and kill 2 bottles of wine each!!  After a really fun gab session with the girls…it just made me reminiscent of all our young fun together. ♡♡♡

Love my girls and love my life.

Happy Friday

Best way to end the week…wine and korean dramas 🙂

Random Photos for April

Found these photos in my drafts inbox.  I normally start entries on my phone but I always forget to post them!!  Here are a bunch of them from last April that I have yet to post (or maybe have posted sporadically).

Statement Mirrors

The more I see them, the more I want a big statement mirror in our apartment.  Currently we have a plain square mirror above our credenza and well…I’m already bored with it.

I want something cuter and bigger like the ones below!  These are mostly from ZGallerie ❤
