i spent a couple of hours at hulda crooks park today taking photos of tristan and his day of fun in the snow with some huskies. watch the video below to hear his story. but be warned, this one is a definite tear jerker.

our christmas tree this year is definitely one of my favorite trees...i've named him doug. yes, i know, he's not a douglas fir, but doug just seemed to fit for some reason.
i just spent most of the evening listening to christmas music and wrapping up a bunch of gifts. is christmas really already coming next week?! i feel like i still have soo much to do!

in the spirit of all things christmas...jenn is hosting a wish list giveaway! go on over and join in on the fun! share your fave thing about winter and you just might win something off your christmas wish list! sounds like so much fun, i just might want to host a giveaway of my own! ;)

melon bars.

Sunday, November 22, 2009

have you ever tried these little frozen bars of deliciousness?
if you haven't, don't try them.
unless you plan on becoming addicted and eating more than one.
i think i've almost had one-a-day since last monday. no joke.

it's become a regular occurrence for irv and i to go see the lakers and bulls play once a year - whether we're in la or chicago.

unlike last year, we didn't really have time to stop anywhere to eat before the game. so i ended up with a veggie burger from inside staples. i was pleasantly surprised at what i found..."eating is not a spectator sport, dig in!"

last night, kobe surpassed kareem to become the second highest scoring laker of all time :)

lakers won! i was happy. but irv? not so much. but then after our stop at la live and as we were leaving he spotted taj gibson and was able to meet him, so i think that kinda made up for the loss :)

i'm not a big fan of filipino restaurants (pondahan). maybe its because everything has meat in it and i can't really ever eat that much? or maybe its because i'd rather have it home cooked?

but, i don't mind going once in awhile - especially if its with these two. plus the calamansi juice and desserts always make it more than worth it.

turron and, my favorite, macapuno ice cream...

needless to say the rest of the day was spent at bakeries and markets (re)stocking up on asian snack foods (that i know are terrible for me, but just taste too good :)

k town.
