strawberry poppyseed.

Monday, June 30, 2008

my dad took me and my brother to panera for dinner tonight. it was the perfect summer dinner after a long day of working.

i got the new pomegranate red tea. a half mediterranean veggie sandwich with a half strawberry poppyseed salad. everything was good, but the salad was amazing.

if you haven't tried the strawberry poppyseed salad, you need to.

summer marathon.

today was just one of those days that i never wanted to end...

it started early this morning. i had an interview out in irvine, so i dragged mello and edsel with me so i could make a day out of the trip. after my interview we went to the irvine spectrum and walked around for awhile...but it wasn't too long before i was starving.

i try to go to this restaurant, native foods whenever i can and today was the perfect day for it...

after eating we walked around "the camp" and then went to "the lab." both anti-malls...i think mello and ed wanted to squeeze in some tanning after eating before shopping...

random signs at "the camp" that i thought looked kinda cool...

after eating i was super stuffed...we did a little shopping and then made our way to the beach. i wanted to stop by the balboa fun zone to take some photos at a photobooth, but when we got there i came to find that they replaced it with a digital one. i hate the digital photobooths...i guess i'll have to look for another one...

i don't know what ed is doing...

after the beach we really wanted some frozen yogurt. so we decided to head home...but it was bad timing i guess because traffic was horrible. by the time we got close to home i was hungry again. so we decided to eat at red robin before getting frozen yogurt. =]

i always like going to red robin because they have the best strawberry lemonade ever. i think they call it their freckle lemonade...the chunks of real strawberries are wonderful.

i don't think i was as hungry as i thought i was, because i could barely finish my food and i was soo full afterwards it wasn't funny. as much as we wanted frozen yogurt, we decided against it. since we all felt so full, we tried to walk it off.

we ended up at the park. ed rode a bike there, but as lazy as we are mello and i drove. i couldn't believe how nice the weather was this evening. it was weird and amazing.

believe it or not after the park mello wanted ice cream. i was still super full, but what did i do? i got ice cream! chocolate malted crunch. as full as i was it was still oh so good. ed got some boba and then we were off to jay's house. and after story time with jay i'm finally home.

after more than 12 hours out and about today i'm super sleepy and super content. i will sleep well tonight...

mango salsa and raspberry frozen yogurt.

Monday, June 23, 2008

to some, grocery shopping may seem like a weekly chore, but to edsel it was something new he had never really done...until friday that is.

after comparing prices and sizes while looking for the best prices we were out of stater brothers in an hour. he desperately wanted some mango salsa and i guess the brands at stater brothers just didn't cut it so we made a quick trip to trader joe's.

of course it was super hot outside and after all that shopping it was time for something cold. mello has been talking about this frozen yogurt place and i've been wanting to try it for was definitely all she said it would be.

the place is called ohana yogurt shop. it is a self-serve frozen yogurt shop with lots of toppings. i love that its self serve...that way i can eat as little or as much as i want!

i got some very raspberry frozen yogurt with mangos, strawberries and a few cubes of moochi. it was wonderful...and surprisingly my eyes weren't bigger than my stomach for once...i got just the right amount.

today mello turned 22...happy birthday mello! =]

a group of around 15 of us ate dinner at yardhouse. when i left i realized that i didn't take any photos of the food i ate. i guess i was super hungry.

i finally got to see michelle and eric...

edsel: "i want to go disco and karaoke after."

so...for the rest of the night ann ann and edsel put on a show.

sorrie ed, no disco dancing for you tonight.

my bagel sandwich really hit the spot for dinner.

now that i'm home i've come to find that i don't enjoy cooking as much when i'm not cooking for a group of my friends...

and yes i'm eating off a laker plate. GO LAKERS!! i want that parade.

front yard visitor.

Friday, June 06, 2008

my dad played a round of golf today after work. and when he got home this is what he found in our front yard.

he came in to the house screaming for me and my mom to come outside and see what he found! then he grabbed a stick and just picked it up as if it was his lost pet he finally found.

belly the bear.

Wednesday, June 04, 2008

i babysat my little cousin today. she wouldn't stop crying for her mom, so i built her a castle for us to hide from "the monsters." the only people around were my family, so they became the monsters we were hiding from. once inside we ate crackers and played with her stuffed bear. inside our castle we had the following conversation...

t: "does your bear have a name?"

c: "no. i didn't name him."

t: "ok. let's name him! what should his name be?"

c: "belly! belly the bear!"

job hunting with ed.

Monday, June 02, 2008

today was filled with searching for jobs for ed and eating. one of our stops was a temp agency and we weren't inside for more than two minutes and a couple of women were offering ed a driving job for tonight! haha. mello and i were dying, my stomach hurt from laughing so much.
of course after all that job hunting we were starved. so we went to eat two things you should always eat when visiting california. in n out and pinkberry.

and then it was time for dessert.

notice edsel's name is spelled as "edztle" haha.

i had forgotten how hilarious it is to hang out with ed. my stomach still hurts from laughing so much. thanks ed. =]
