Wedding Pictures (Part IV)

The Korean Cermony–this was my FAVORITE part of the wedding.  The only time I was completely relaxed and having fun.

Elders throw dates (girls) and chestnuts (boys) and whatever the bride and groom catch signify how many babies we’re going to have ❤

Our face is basically—“ahhh we made it”  The weeks leading up to the wedding were SO STRESSFUL, I know understand why people hire wedding planners ( we did not).  They are worth EVERY PENNY!

4 Gold Knuckle Rings from Etsy

I just bought these over the weekend and I’m so pysched for them to arrive!  I have fat fingers, so I didn’t think Knuckle rings would be flattering~ but I tried some on when I was in SF two weekends ago and well…they actually make my fingers look longer!  Go Figure.

Fourth of July Outfit Ideas

Every Fourth of July, I’m always scrambling to get something red, white and blue.  This past year, I’ve been consciously looking for clothing that isn’t just those colors~ but has the actual flag pattern.  I’ve found that Forever 21, Love Culture and Brandy Melville all have really great options!

Birthday Weekend Celebrations <3

I turned 29 this weekend…It was really bittersweet.  I’m in my last year of my 20s! EEK.  Time is passing by so quickly but in my heart/mind, I still feel 23 or 24.  *sigh *  Looking back, I really lived my 20s to the fullest and met some incredible life-long friends.

Thursday, June 27

My wonderful co-workers threw me a surprise birthday party!    The room was decorated, there were delicious treats, and one of my professors brought me champs! xo

image

Friday, June 28 (my actual birthday)

I woke up to THIS!  Markel was SO FREAKING SWEET.  He made me an egg scramble and coffee to start off my day ❤  I really love that man.

image

I spent the morning (3 hours) in line at the DMV.  The best part was that I forgot to bring my kindle so I just had to stare at people and be that cweepy girl.  *sigh *  I very seriously wanted to die when the lady at the DMV told me I needed to take another picture.  I hadn’t showered, wore no makeup and was wearing my glasses >.<  This is what my driver’s license pic will most likely look like below.  *tear *

image

After the horrific DMV, I grabbed brunch with my best girlfriend from elementary school at Cafe Gratitude.  I wasn’t sure I was going to like Vegan food, but really…this place was AMAZING.  Check out my food blog in the coming days for the review ❤

image

Next, I went to starbucks and got my free birthday starbucks drink!  This is my first year getting it since I registered my starbucks gift card.  TOTALLY worth it ❤

Unfortunately, the barista spelled both my name and birthday wrong >.<  eek.  Just made for a really funny instagram post.

image

The rest of the day I relaxed at home, did a little work and just pampered myself =)  For dinner, Markel and I went to Sugarfish in Santa Monica.  Every year, they always give me a free birthday meal, so we’ve been making it a tradition.  If you haven’t been to any of the sugarfish locations, PLEASE GO.  It’s delicious, fresh and well…the sashimi just melts in your mouth.

Fun street performers, After Dinner Treats: pinkberry and some shopping!

Gorgeous skyline in Santa Monica

The end of my Birthday…I’m definitely not young anymore when I’m in bed by 10:30pm.  >.<

image

Saturday, June 29

Woke up, read magazines (my favorite thing to do) and drank coffee while catching up on some reality TV.  BEST way to spend the morning.

image

Later, my lovely anna bear came by and gave me a gorgeous birthday gift!!  A ring from Jessica Matrasko Jewelry.  LOVE her pieces and this ring was to die for ❤

image

My Birthday at Gaam in Ktown.  Filled with great food, drinks and the bestest of friends.  I’m so lucky for all the loved ones in my life! xo

image

image

I love these girls ❤

Sunday, June 30 & Monday, July 1st

Major Recovery mode.  Lots of sleeping, eating, and just relaxing.  Soaking up every last second of the weekend before returning to work.

xoxo Lots of Doing Nothing xoxo

Oh! And this past week we went to a really fun raffle event put on by Hotel Angeleno.  Free drinks, food and prizes!!  Unfortunately, we didn’t win any prizes =(

Writing Wedding Thank You Notes at work during my lunch hour *sigh *  It’s never ending…

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 ❤

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!

I have the BEST bridesmaids in the entire world.  They threw the most amazing bash for me!!  Every single detail was GORGEOUS and incredibly thoughtful.  They not only were super crafty, but the decor style of the event was classic ❤  I’m so grateful to those girls!

My roomie/BM took 60+ pictures from the day, so here are just some fun ones for you to see.

Weekend Recap and Photodump

This past weekend was ANOTHER busy busy busy one~~  Filled with good food, friends, and some physical labor ❤

Friday Night, Markel and I watched a Mad Men marathon and just hung out at home.  We ate leftovers and just did what we haven’t been able to do: RELAX!

Saturday, bright and early, we woke up and drove out to Chino to help Markel’s grandparents move to San Diego.  It was such a gorgeous day~~ it didn’t feel like we were moving.  After the move, we were able to do a little home decor shopping at Z Gallerie & Target ❤

(made a little care package for Markel’s Bro’s wedding, the weather was GORG, so was the sunset!)

image

image

Sunday, Markel and I got to sleep in and slowly get ready for a big bbq birthday bash ❤  Our friends came over, got to see our new place, and Markel was able to use his new GRILL~~~ his most prize possession at the moment.

I forgot to take pictures at the beginning of the party, so here are just some random ones towards the end.  This year, I planned a REALLY REALLY chill birthday for Markel b/c he was so burnt out from work/wedding/traveling/moving/LIFE!  We kept it all incredibly low key and relaxing~ so that Mike could sit back and enjoy the day.  (Markel’s Birthday Pasts)

image

He was so special he got TWO birthday cakes

Happy Birthday Baby!! xoxo

Monogram Etsy Necklaces from Swirl Studio Designs

For my Maids of Honors, I bought them monogram necklaces that came late in the mail.  I bought them from Swirl Studio Designs and they were INCREDIBLY easy to work with.  I kept making the wrong mistakes while I was going through my order and they not only replied to me right away, but made it easy to fix the errors so that I could get what I wanted. =)

AND because they are so sweet~ they are offering a 20% discount for all my readers!!  Just use “MAM20” and get your discount during checkout ❤

You’ll LOVE these gorgeous necklaces~~ The store had 10+ different designs and items, but I got the same thing for all three of us ❤

Here’s the packaging that they arrive in below.  Inside, the necklaces are also in these awesome blue fabric baggies as well.
